  2. # Hiding Extra Partitions In Clover #

  5. This goes over a couple of easy ways to hide extra, cluttery partitions in Clover.
  6.  
  7. * In Clover Configurator, under the Gui menu on the left, look in the Scan section.  Make sure you have "Custom" selected, and untick the checkboxes "Legacy" and "Kernel".
  8.  
  9. * That should take care of the clutter of Windows drives and some of the extra EFI nonsense, now let's get to our Recovery partitions for our Mac drives.

  15. I'll leave the older stuff in there in case it helps, but I found a super easy way to hide the recovery partitions in Clover.
  16.  
  17. 1. Get the UUID for the recovery partition. You can do this with:
  18.     - diskutil info /Path/To/Drive/
  19.         - You're looking for the "Disk / Partition UUID"
  20.     - My "Recovery UUID" script
  21.     - In the Clover boot menu, select your drive and press space
  22.  
  23. 2. The next part has 2 options, both crazy easy.
  24.     A. In Clover Configurator -> Gui -> Hide Volume, hit the plus sign "+"
  25.     and just paste in the UUID for the partition you want to hide in there
  26.     - Make sure you save it afterward
  27.    
  28.     B. You can open your config.plist -> GUI -> Hide, and add a new <string>
  29.     value with the UUID for the partitions you want to hide.  Looks like:
  30.         <key>GUI</key>
  31.         <dict>
  32.             <key>Hide</key>
  33.             <array>
  34.                 <string>YourUUIDHere</string>
  35.                 <string>SecondUUIDHere</string>
  36.                 <string>etcUntilYourFinished</string>
  37.             </array>
  38.  
  39.     - There may already be some values in the Hide array, but you can just
  40.     add yours before or after the existing values.
  41.     - Remember to save this too.
  42.

  56. - In Clover Configurator again, go to Boot.log on the left, and hit "Generate log", and then "Save log to Desktop".
  57. - Open the new bootlog.log.txt, and also open a terminal window.
  58. - You can get the UUID of your partitions with diskutil by typing "diskutil info diskXsX" where the Xs represent the disk and partition number you want to hide.
  59. - You can also get this info by going into the Clover bootloader screen, highlighting the volume you want to hide, and pressing the spacebar to get extra info.
  60. - Head back to your bootlog.log.txt and do a search for like the last 5 characters in the UUID of the volume you want to hide.
  61. - You should see something like: HD(3,GPT,E38BACB0-EC9E-4846-A420-3CC0D1260D22,0x3A2500E8,0x135F20)
  62.     - We just need the E38BACB0-EC9E-4846-A420-3CC0D1260D22
  63.     - I have a Recovery UUID script that finds the Apple_Boot partion
  64.     of a disk and outputs the UUID, should be in the same folder as
  65.     this document.
  66. - That is the info we need to copy.  It is the volume's location id that Clover uses
  67. - Back to Clover Configurator -> Gui -> Custom Entries, hit the + sign
  68. - Double-click on the resulting Custom Entry and do the following:
  69.     - Under Title/Full Title, pick a name (doesn't matter since we're hiding
  70.     it anyway, but I chose "Recovery Partition"
  71.     - Set the "Hidden" popup menu to "Always"
  72.     - Paste your volume's UUID in the "Volume" text field
  73.  
  74. * All done!
