This is EFI-based bootloader for BIOS-based computers created as a replacement to EDK2/Duet bootloader http://www.tianocore.org. To compile it needs to place Clover sources into edk2/ folder.

Asus z87-expert с UEFI BIOS заставила меня искать альтернативу методу UniBeast + MultiBeast. Clover оказался удачным загрузчиком. Всё, кроме Wi-Fi + Bluetooth, замечательно работает. Это при том, что я не программист.
Amazing boot loader. Really makes OS X boot and behave so much faster than with a legacy BIOS boot loader like Chimera. Still have some sleep issues, hope to get them all ironed out soon.
I must agree with others. Clover is a FANTASTIC boot loader! But, documentation is perhaps one of the worst I've ever seen: - There is a wiki, which is outdated and quite short in descriptions - There is a huge forum thread, with several links to posts with sometimes whatever sometimes helpful, really helpful information - There is no "default template", or "most common options" for a config.plist, so to get started, you must "know it all" So, whoever is willing to spend at least 10 hours reading some material, they might be able to use it, otherwise, just don't.
