Clover Bootable Usb

  

Nice work but completely unnecessary as Dell Gen12 servers with latest BIOS boot just fine from NVMe drives.

My own home server is a Dell PowerEdge T320 and it happily boots from the 800GB intel SSD DC P3600 U.2 NVMe SSD I put in a cheap SYBA U.2 rack and connected with a cheap SYBA passive PCIe-to-MiniSAS card.

The Clover Recovery Installer is ready! Now you can boot from the USB. Notes: After the installation is finished, you need to generate a proper SMBIOS (do not log-in to iCloud before that), after that, you can delete '-nocompatcheck' bootarg This is just a basic Clover configuration, most likely you'll need to tweak it to your system.

I have also tried other U.2 NVMe drives such as Micron 9200/9300 and even a simple Sabrent Rocket 1TB M.2 NVMe consumer grade SSD in a simple M.2 to PCIe adapter and they all booted fine in the PE T320. The only drive that didn't boot was an Adata SX8200 Pro 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD but that same drive had problems in other NVMe bootable systems, too.

All drives were formatted with 4k block size (except the Adata as it refused to get formatted in anything else than 512byte blocks), and I tried to boot Windows Server 2016/2019, openSUSE Leap 15 Linux and VMware ESXi 7.0 which all booted just fine.

I know from tests with other systems that Samsung consumer drives can be problematic, so I'd expect them to be in a PE Gen12, too. But in general enterprise-grade NVMe drives should work just fine.

BTW, since when I did my tests I had a chance to confirm the same works in a PE T620. Since the Gen12 shares a common platform I'm sure other Gen12 servers will boot fine with the same drives as well.

If you are having any trouble, first try this string. It works on a lot of systems with Intel HD Graphics to get into the OS X Installer from a Unibeast USB.

If you have an NVIDIA Desktop GPU, use this string to boot into the installer:
