Thanks for your DUET/Tianocore tutorial. I've read all of your posts related to NVMe boot in this forum. Really great findings, glad that you succeeded with all tweaks and compiling :) Maybe even make a small tutorial on how to compile the newest version including the needed drivers yourself? This might eliminate the last sceptical guesses, and give some opportunity to make own versions, as there might be some "incompatibilities" with different chipsets and mainboard versions, as DUET/Tianocore is a more "raw" approach.
This is why I fully agree with you. If you just have a windows PC, rather use the "cleaner" method with DUET/Tianocore. I didn't do alot research to that yet, but I'm not sure if the hackintosh optimizations actually are applied if you boot Windows via Clover. If I'll find some time, I'll research and maybe modify this thread, to direct users on when to use which method. Even better, maybe @Fernando should just add both guides into his main guide about making BIOSes/UEFIs NVMe bootable, just as alternative methods, because some people might oversee that there are other possibilities, when not being successfull or scared with modding their BIOS/UEFI.
Just flash over your USB drive containing the clover efi or insert the module in the appropriate folder described in this guide. (Use BDU for that) - Warning, your USB drive will be wiped
By the way: A new Module won't make your drive faster. As soon as Windows boots, you are using the standard microsoft windows nvme driver or the windows-driver from your nvme vendor.
The the Clover nvme-driver is just there to make your drive bootable, because your bios/uefi doesn't support nvme.
You succeeded by following this guide or which bootloader did you use? I'm little bit confused, because you are writing about multiple ones. You want to write your own tutorial specifically for your board or legacy BIOSes in common? If you want, we can add an universal addition to my guide.
That's the problem with Clover. It's made for Hackintosh purposes, so you'll find most tools only for OS X.
You want to update your Clover-EFI? On what media did you install it? Flash or SATA SSD/HDD?
Weird, then your BIOS/UEFI probably got whitelisted hardware.
Clover is based on Tianocore by the way. Tried it aswell with Tianocore first and failed. It seems, that it's not developed actively anymore.
Finally I can contribute some small amount of wisdom back to this forum. It helped me so many times!
@Gerson and @Claud
Really glad it works for you!
Which exact model do you have? Are there any other drives in your notebook? I think for notebookusers, usb drives are not the best solution :P
Maybe use a SD-Card or SATA-device. I mean it works with Cvads BDU, but just be careful when creating the EFI-partition.
Hi there, any recommendations for 1.8V converters? Don't need one right now, just want to have one for the future.
Thanks in advance!
First I wanna thank Fernando and all the other people for this great forum. I learned alot of stuff from you. Nicely detailed guides. I'm very grateful for that!
But now I'm having some trouble, so this is why I signed up.
I've modded different AMI-based UEFI/BIOSes from Fujitsu motherboards. One model I'm going to own soon, has the CSMCORE, the others do not, which made me fail probably. Bricked a FUJITSU CELSIUS M740 (YLXR) Motherboard, which is named D3348-A1x. That was a friends machine, In which I tried to get his Toshiba OCZ RD400A working.
Workstation: https://sp.ts.fujitsu.com/dmsp/Publicati...ELSIUS-M740.pdf (Yes, it supports NVMe by default, but only the newer revisions of the motherboard: D3348-A2 and D3348-B2)
D3348-A1 uses D3348-A2 NVMe modules (3 of them), also used the universal one out of this guide, but couldn't try, because the board was dead after the first flash with the 3 modules.
D3128-A1 uses the universal module, couldn't try yet though.
As you can see, the D3348-motherboards don't have any CSMCORE, so I inserted the 3 modules "alike" with the order of the D3348-A2.
For the universal one: With the MMTool, I just inserted it at the same index volume and with UEFITool where the original Fujitsu Nvme.ffs was.
Flashed with "AFUDOS.EXE "ROM" /GAN" from a Supermicro BIOS-updatepack, mentioned somewhere in this forum, because all the others failed to flash. (Fujitsu signature check prevented me flashing with the official tools and the plain AFUFlashtools from AMI)
Also ordered a CH341A + clamp for future problem fixings like these (dead boards).
To clarify once more:
D3348-A1 -> has no CSMCORE, used 3 extracted modules out of the new motherboard revision D3348-A2. Also prepared one D3348-A1 UEFI with the universal module from this guide. Couldn't try though. Board is now dead, tried the official recovery-mode, removed the CMOS battery and so on.
D3128-A1 -> has CSMCORE, used universal module from this guide. (Not tried yet)
Any ideas/improval suggestions?
Thank you in advance!
