Fixing Resolution and Verbose

Wanting a more clean booting experience with macOS without all that verbose text while booting? Well you need a couple things:

macOS Decluttering

Misc -> Debug

  • Set AppleDebug to False, this will remove boot.efi debugging right at the start of booting.

NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82:

  • Remove -v from Argomenti di avvio in your config.plist

NVRAM -> Add -> 4D1EDE05-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B38C14:

  • UIScale
    • 01: Standard resolution
    • 02: HiDPI (generally required for FileVault to function correctly on smaller displays)

UEFI -> Output:

  • TextRenderer set toBuiltinGraphics
  • Resolution: set to Max for best results
    • Optionally can specify resolution: WxH@Bpp (e.g. 1920x1080@32) or WxH (e.g. 1920x1080)
  • ProvideConsoleGop set to True

If still having issues, see Configuration.pdfopen in new window for all possible options.

OpenCore Decluttering

So if you followed closely to this guide during install, you'll likely be running the debug version of OpenCore and a .txt file would be created on each boot. For those who want to remove OpenCore's extra debugging messages and that .txt file generation, see below:

Inside your config.plist:

Inside your EFI:

  • Replace the following files with the release versionsopen in new window(if previously using DEBUG versions):
    • EFI/BOOT/
      • BOOTx64.efi
    • EFI/OC/Drivers/
      • OpenRuntime.efi
    • EFI/OC/
      • OpenCore.efi
