Dual Boot with clover bootloader

Dual booting is kinda easy.if you installing in different hard drive then dont have to do much.Clover/other boot loader can detect auto all the OS drives.But for same HDD and Laptop, its bit tricky.Here i posted some useful configs, use then at will.

Method 1:

This is much better option but its writes on you bios . Enter the BIOS, look for boot option and add  /EFI/Clover/Cloverx64.efi ,make it as top priority of the boot sequence.

Method 2:

Use an USB to boot into OS X, do the settings below,

  1. Use Clover Configurator to mount the EFI partition (Mount EFI> )
  2. Rename bootmgfw.efi in /EFI/Microsoft/Boot to bootmgfwA.efi
  3. Copy Cloverx64.efi in /EFI/Clover to /EFI/Microsoft/Boot and rename it bootmgfw.efi

Method 3: Recommended option
