Re: EETech on Mac fails to boot

Jump to solution

yup, and we have one of those and have tested it. If your MacBook Pro behaved like a MacBook, then it would also work as well. But, it does not. Either that, or we did test it and came to the conclusion that it was never going to work - I don't have access to the negative cases, only the positives.

Seriously - has this device had any firmware updates even? That thread I found indicated there were all kinds of magic needed to make it work with 64bit EFI and OS - maybe the device is just plain borked as far as 64bit EFI is concerned?

Re: EETech on Mac fails to boot

Jump to solution

To follow up on this Minh from support actually mailed me a USB stick that worked. He then followed up with a phone call and stepped me through creating one on my own. This key works. He had me do a couple things different then the documentation states:

When we formatted the key we selected to format it as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) . This is not in the documentation.

Also the command he had me run after copying the EpeTechEfi.efi was different.

sudo bless --folder /Volumes/EETech/ --file/Volumes/EETech/EpeTechEfi.efi

--label "McAfee EETech" --setboot

That --setboot option was not in the documentation either.
