Clover Config: Tweaking Clover menu entries
OS entries on Clover menu screen can be hidden, renamed by editing.
Step 1: Get the entry partition’s UUID by openingin /Library/Logs/CloverEFI/ ( this file is created only if you selected Install RC Scripts to target partitions upon installing Clover ). Locate Volume section. Compare existing partitions on your HDD/SSD with the log by typing this in Terminal:
<span class="pln">diskutil list</span>
Or simply remember the line “Boot Windows from Legacy HD3”, “Boot OS X from Macintosh” on the Clover menu screen to find the entry partition’s name. Get its UUID then save it on a text file
Step 2: Open Clover Configurator, import the current, switch to tab GUI.
If you want to hide all Legacy entries ( Boot … from Legacy HD… ), select Custom in Scan, then uncheck Legacy.
To edit entries manually, select the + button in Custom Entries (for UEFI entries like Windows UEFI, Linux UEFI, OS X ) or Custom Legacy ( for Legacy entries like Windows Legacy, Linux Legacy,…):
- Volume: enter the entry partition’s UUID in step 1
- Path: if the partition contains multiple entries, type the correct path to it ( separate by “” )
- Title/Full Title: check it to switch to Full Title, type the desired name which will shown on Clover menu screen.
- Hidden: Hide the entry from Clover menu screen. Select Always if you want to remove the entry from Clover boot screen.
- Disabled: Disable the custom entry.
- InjectKexts: Automatically inject kexts in /EFI/Clover/kexts/ to this entry
- NoCache: Don’t use cache for this entry
- Type: Identify the type of OS
- Entry partition’s UUID must be identified correctly. For example, Windows UEFI and Linux UEFI’s boot entries is stored in EFI partition ( because Windows’s is located in EFIMicrosoftBoot, not in Windows partition, the same applies to Linux ). OS X boot entry is stored in SystemLibraryCoreServices ).
- If the Volume check mark is blank then Clover will identify the entry base on Type, and vice versa.
