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.

Allows users to install retail versions of OX X without using hacked distros. Also pretty handy as a UEFI bootloader for Linux and Windows. Unfortunately, neigther the docs nor the wiki are well maintained, so configuration can be difficult. Also, you need some kind of working OSX system to install it on a target device. You can use Virtualbox, and or a hacked distro, but a Windows/Linux installer would be VERY nice.
The only XNU/Darwin bootloader for common x86 hardware that does its job well
Well documented, reliable and powerful bootloader !
5* from me. Really the best OS X loader available. Getting used to it is a bit tricky but after some try and error everything runs and you know for sure what you are doing and why. That works better than copy and paste instructions for me.
Best bootloader for Hackintosh - OSx86 (install Mac OS X on PC) and support another systems operation.
