My suggestion is MacPro3,1 or iMac10,1both run fine in my rig.


Hello, This is a beautiful write-up.  I am having one issue so far though.

 

I have gotten only to the point of the language selection of the install.  My keyboard and Mouse are not working at this point and prevents me from moving forward.  Any ideas?

 

Can you tell us more about your system?

I just had this issue as seen a few posts up.

 

Load NullCPUPowermanagement.kext into System and you should be able to finish your setup.

What keyboard and mouse setup do you have? Is this PS/2?

MAJ

EDIT:
Have you tried the VoodooPs2-10 files in the repository?
There's a little bit of work in installing them.

I have a compaq PS/2 keyboard and a Logitech USB G15

 

I don't see the VoodooPs2-10 files.  what do I need to do to install them

 

I see the instructions and the Voodoo folder in the repository, the instructions look as though it's to install to the OS X itself instead of the USB boot drive.  Is there special instructions to get this working?

Hi MAJ

 

Yesterday my machine crashed and corrupted my boot parition :(

So I had to restart a fresh install from nothing... Well that was a chance to upgrade from Mountain Lion to Mavericks :)

Hopefully all my data is backed up online with crashplan, so now I only need to wait for the download process to end.

Here is a couple of remark about you script: 

 

First of all, the only thing I have to boot was an old 10.5.6 IPC CD....

I installed it to have something to run the script... But unfortunately your latest script requires 10.6+.
Could you make available an old version that can be run from 10.5 ? Or is it just impossible to create a working Mavericks boot drive  from 10.5 ?

 

So I made an usb boot drive from a real mac (running 10.7.5) at work.

During the boot process, the screen went black (instead of white) and nothing happened... screen went to power saving and that was all. End of the game :)

It appears that is was due to a missing DSDT.

From my working IPC install and an old version of the script (5.01) I found, I was able to build a DSDT.aml file and copied it on the USB boot disk.

It worked :)

Maybe you could mention that in the FAQ.

 

 

Oh, and now a technical question.

 

I installed 10.9.0 and immediaetly updated to 10.9.3

Update worked fine, but I got a CMOS Reset on wake... (I did not test sleep/wake while running 10.9.0, so I can tell if this is related to 10.9.3 or not)

 

Any clue on how to fix this ? 

(Note: I am using AppleRTC.kext v2.0 which seems to be the most recent one)

ICore,

Make sure you have the AppleRTC.kext installed in /System. That should fix the issue. :)

 3) HDAEnabler1.kext                1.0.0d1= x86_64  108K          Root /System

    (No files present to install)

Networking
 4) IONetworkingFamily.kext         3.2=     x86_64  0,0M          Root  /Extra

 5) AppleRTC.kext                   2.0=     x86_64   80K          Root /System
 6) FakeSMC.kext                    6.8.1307=x86_64  724K          Root  /Extra
 7) NullCPUPowerManagement.kext     1.0.0d2= x86_64  116K          Root  /Extra

I ' ve got a EX58-UD5 board - i7 920 CPU - EVGA GeForce 9800GTX+ (512) video card and 12 GB of RAM.

 

I ' ve used Clover to install Snow Leopard and digital_dreamers Hackinstaller to load Mountain Lion (10.8.5) and Mavericks (10.9.1) all are still without Networking, sound and support for my video card with multiple video resolutions  Only Mountain Lion is booted with Chameleon 2.2 at this moment.

What kexts or scripts do I need to get them on to sound, networking and recognizing the resolutions that my GeForce 9800GTX+ can attain?

Ga ex58 ud3R - i7 920 - 6Gb corsair - GTX 285 nvidia

Finally i managed to boot in Yosemite with kernelcache on and my only issue is the runaway mouse.

I used the chameleon boot usb pkg to build my bootable usb but unfortunately with chameleon 2380 my system couldn't reach the boot screen.Don't know why,although with 2377 worked like a charm.

So i used maj's script to install the bootloader ( the rest for now needs update,hope maj will give this amazing script an update boost ) by manually replacing the chimera inside the script with Chameleon2380 and worked.

Next step was bypassing the Appleexudelist that hanged the boot.
Manually deleted and boot with -f
Transfer kexts from e/e to s/l/e and with little help from victor souza
open /usr/standalone/BootCaches.plist and change "Izvn" on "Preferred Compression" key to ""Izss"
then go to terminal and type:
sudo -s
hit enter
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel -all-loaded
then hit enter again
sudo kextcache -v 1 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext -z /System/Library/Extensions/

Reboot and without -f manage to boot with cache enabled.
Can't fix the mouse issue though :(

Sorry for the long post

I succeeded finally to install Yosemite on my GA EX58-UD5.

 

1.USB install disk created with this topic:http://www.insanelym...r-1010-dp1-usb/

2.Then install Clover_v2k_r2728.pkg ( EFI folder/ like my Mavericks 10.9.3) kexts in 10.10 folder;DSDT.aml; Vbios for my GC)

3.Install FakeSMC.kext (3.3.1) and IONetworkingFamily.kext ( with RealtekRTL811 v1.2 ) copied in S/L/E

4.Boot the USB install disk and install Yosemite DP1 on "Yosemite disk".

5.Back to Mavericks disk. and changed config.plist for clover and added "kext-dev-mode=1" to my boot args

6.Reboot with USB install disk and chose "Yosemite disk". Install all kext needed for my hardware in S/L/E with Kext Utility Super Speed Edition 2.5.7 rebuild kernel cache.

7.Reboot with USB install disk and chose "Yosemite disk".

8.Apple Update to Yosemite 10.10 DP2 and installed in S/L/E "QE_CI Exotic Patch Yosemite 10.10 DP2 kexts" for 48xx cards (not shure if I need this !)

9.Reboot in Yosemite disk

 

And Voilà

:D

 

Looking if Cloverbootloader could inject kexts or not.

Keep you informed
