I have a macPRO 3,1 running HS on an NVMe drive formatted APFS via DOSDUDE1 patch and injected NVMe driver in my bootrom and I’m getting a EFI shell when booting? I have a MVC flashed GTX1070, which I hear has issues with verbose logging at startup. Has anyone found out how to eliminate this annoying shell at boot? Aside from formatting to hfs+? I think it’s related to startup.nsh in my EFI partition. I can quit the shell, enter commands, I even tried to set echo to -off? Why is this shell starting up at boot? Annoying, to say the least!

Sorry this is off topic but where did you get those desktop folder icons? The SSD, Metroid, and the Apple folder are so cool. Thanks.

I made the NVMe Drive icon. (Copied from Manufac.website and photoshopped.) I felt I couldn’t have such a sexy drive misrepresented on my desktop with a plate drive icon!

Solved! Dosdude1’s APFS patch did the trick! Added APFS support to the bootrom. Now boots APFS natively, instead of via EFI shell script. DO NOT FLASH IF YOU HAVE NVIDIA SATA CHIP! CHECK YOUR MACHINE!

It is always a good idea when a problem is happily no longer one (like in your case) to add to the thread title the customary "RESOLVED".
This helps the readers.
