Motherboard behaving weirdly

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys. I'm so into the Team Hackintosh and I'm having this issue. Nothing to do with OS X btw. 

 

One of the most recommended installation methods for OS X in a PC is clover, as you may or may not know. I did the whole process exactly two times in my system because of reasons, but then I notices when I enter in the UEFI i have two new options to boot from:

 

Mac OS X and Mac OS X

 

I thought it was normal, but I removed all my drivers and then realized these two options were still there. Even when there weren't any single HDD or SSD or USB memory or Disc connected.

 

The Mac OS Xs boot options are carved into the UEFI and not even by cleaning the CMOS can't get rid of it.

I asked for help in the Hackingtosh community but they haven't been able to help me.

 

 

And also this wouldn't be a serious issue if my computer performed well, but the motherboard also seems not to save the changes I make on the UEFI. Primely in the boot options. Here's a screenshot

Have you tried flashing the BIOS?

I have it considered, but feel a little scared to do so. I already broke a motherboard that attempted to flash. I need to restore the defaults settings, right? what if this issue prevents it to be restored?

Flashing it will likely be the only solution unless you're adept in modifying the EFI shell. Flashing generally isn't a big, once you start just let it do its thing and don't touch it while making sure the power doesn't go out.

You have a dual BIOS MOBO. Flip the switch on the board. It won't solve the problem on BIOS #1, but at least you have a backup.

Whoa thank you! I totally forgot about the second bios chip. I'll try it before flashing it then let you know.
