Disabling Verbose (To make booting faster)


If you do this and then there is a problem that causes macOS to not boot, you must redownload the opencore qcow2 file from the github repository.

  1. In the macOS Finder, look for EFI in the left bar under Volumes. If it isn't visible you will have to mount it:
  • Open the macOS Terminal and type diskutil list and look for the disk/partition location of the EFI. (There may be more than one.)
  • Type sudo diskutil mount diskYsZ, using the disk/partition location name where you see EFI. It should look like this: image
  • The EFI partition will appear in the left Finder bar under Volumes.
  • If you don't see anything in that volume after browsing to it, try the other ones that you found in diskutil.
  1. In the EFI volume, go into the EFI directory and then the OC directory and open the config.plist file in the macOS text editor.

Next, find and change this line

<string>-v keepsyms=1 tlbto_us=0 vti=9</string>

to this line

<string>keepsyms=1 tlbto_us=0 vti=9</string>
