  1. Clover Bootloader


    Hiya,

    I am going to install clover bootloader whilst clean installing windows 10 for BIOS UEFI (but the BIOS UEFI are 32-Bit). So after I have set up the partitions (shift + F10 before installing windows) from command prompt - please note the automatic set up of partitions is not working. I will then copy clover bootloader over to the EFI folder on the EFI system partition then set the path for BCD. Then I should be able to start the clean installation process of windows 10 which is 64-bit; hence the need for another bootloader. But my question is this. I have mostly set up the EFI folder contents for clover bootloader. I have all of the directories and files except for these three directories ACPI, ROM and Misc. For these I intend to add them from clover bootloader, but all of these directories have empty files within. My question is this. Will these be enough as this is a clean installation and the respective hardware information, for power, ROM and misc, should be collected and updated whilst installing; or will it? I would rather do this once correctly so am checking this out before.

    :)

    Please help me with issues that Windows 10 Build 14393 or 14393+ firmware bootloaders unable to boot from the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) on my Dell laptop

    I NEVER tried dual boot, keeping only ONE Firmware Bootloader with only ONE boot entry on my laptop, which could be one of the items below.

    • Windows Boot Loader with the ONLY Windows 8.1 boot entry
    • Windows Boot Loader with the ONLY Windows 10 boot entry
    • Grub Boot Loader with the ONLY Ubuntu 17.10 boot entry
    • Clover Boot Loader with the ONLY macOS Sierra (Hackintosh) boot entry

    ... but failed to let bootable Windows 10 or Windows 10 PE media boot from the UEFI on my laptop? Can you help identify the issues, please?

    Frankly speaking, Firmware Bootloaders are independent with each other, which was proved by a group of experiments that I did, where all the three bootloaders were able to boot from the UEFI in whichever sequence they had been installed:

    • Windows 10 -> Ubuntu 17.10 -> macOS Sierra (Hackintosh with Clover bootloader)
    • Windows 10 -> macOS Sierra (Hackintosh with Clover bootloader) ->
      Ubuntu 17.10
    • Ubuntu 17.10 -> Windows 10 -> macOS Sierra (Hackintosh with Clover bootloader)
    • Ubuntu 17.10 ->
      macOS Sierra (Hackintosh with Clover bootloader)->
      Windows 10
    • macOS Sierra (Hackintosh with Clover bootloader) ->
      Windows 10->
      Ubuntu 17.10
    • macOS Sierra (Hackintosh with Clover bootloader) ->
      Ubuntu 17.10->
      Windows 10

    Had your statement highlighted above proved to be TRUE?

    If you install multiple Windows Operating Systems (Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10) on to a disk configured with the same UEFI boot file (usually located at "$($ESPPartitionDriveLetter):\efi\Microsoft\Boot\BCD"), then these boot entries will share the
    same Firmware Bootloader, which you can learn by typing in "bcdedit.exe /Enum All" and press Enter in an elevated Command Prompt.

    If you add multiple boot entries to the same EMPTY bootloader in an ascending order by version number (MajorVersion.MinorVersion.BuildNumber.BuildRevision) (i.e. from the lower version to the higher version), then all boot entries will definitely work, the
    exact contrary to what you said. However, if you install Windows 10 before installing other versions of Windows, in most cases, the lower versions of Windows will boot but might encounter any issues such as the mouse pointer not working, because this time
    the Windows Boot Loader has been updated by the lower versions of Windows, which will never be compatible with Windows 10 boot entries, more briefly,
    Backwards Compatibility.
