Proper UEFI BIOS Settings are required when Installing a Hackintosh with Clover Bootloader or OpenCore Bootloader.
A simple mistake in UEFI BIOS may prevent your Hackintosh from Booting. UEFI Configuration error may cause macOS to hang on boot process or may even cause kernel panics.
Here we have listed basic UEFI BIOS Settings that is required to boot a #Hackintosh in a UEFI MotherBoard.
1 Disable CSM
The Compatibility Support Module (CSM) is a component of the UEFI firmware that provides legacy BIOS compatibility by emulating a BIOS environment, allowing legacy operating systems and some option ROMs that do not support UEFI to still be used.
Clover Bootloader and OpenCore Bootloader supports UEFI Booting. Disabling CSM makes BIOS to easily discover Bootloader.
2 Disable Secure Boot
Secure Boot prevents booting an unsigned Bootloader from any internal disk or USB drive. Secure boot is not supported by Clover or OpenCore. Secure Boot must be disabled in UEFI BIOS to boot from a Hackintosh.
To Disable Secure Boot Just “Clear Secure Boot Keys” or delete PK Keys.
