Hi all,

 

Mavericks is running fine on my machine, so I tried to install Yosemite... and hopefully, I did it on another drive!

 


 

Any idea on why it is not working ?

 

I'm not using Chameleon anymore but did you use the latest Chamaleon 2.3 r 2549 ?  http://www.insanelym...ameleon-23-svn/

 

And did you put the "kext-dev-mode=1" as Kernel Flag ?

 

Look carefully the first page of this topic ! "Known issues:"

 

Good luck

1) performance : graphical performance and cpu performance is lower using clover : 8400 (geekbench) compared to 9900 using chameleon and my dsdt. Any clue about how can i fix it?

2) vga connector does not work in clover, unfortunately ... i couldn't find anything how to get it working in clover. In snow leopard it is pretty "automatic" , but HDMI doesn't work in snow... any solution to get vga working on yosemite and to get it working on clover? I have black screen using  VGA connector with clover and it works ok with snow leopard with chameleon. I have nvidia card (geforce 210 1gb)

3) internal audio does not work...i would like to use properly patched AppleHDA of course, not voodoo... any suggestion?

 

i found and modified the VirusX config.plist file, but audio and graphics does not work here.

sorry about my late response, I wasn't checking this thread regularly any more.

Regarding graphics performance and the VGA adapter unfortunately I can't help you since I have never owned a Nvidia card. Generally I would suggest you get a newer monitor because VGA hurts your eyes  :P

 

about 3) you should check toleda's posts about patching the AppleHDA. He wrote some scripts and it's pretty straight forward now. I think I also described it a few posts/pages back here in this thread.

 

Good luck!

Yes, the kext dev mode was set to 1.

Regarding Chameleon, I am using the one included in the latest version of Digital Dream script which is r2395, I should consider an upgrade (but it was not neccessary, see below)
 

Following the Known issues  (Kernel panics on boot section) recommendations (which I did not checked before, I should have...) I put all my kext in the /System and use the kernel cache (UseKernelCache=Yes).

And it worked :)

My only issue was then the App Store which was not working. 
I googled this, and it appears that it was related to my ethernet port being en1 instead of en0
I simply changed my mac model (changing from MacPro5,1 to MacPro4,1 in the smbios.plist) and this issue was solved.

 

Thanks for your help :)

Hello, thanks for the guide and thanks to VirusX and everyone who contributed to this great thread.

I am rather new to clover, it is not the easiest way to go coming from good old chameleon, but i am experimenting it in my great and glorious desktop with ga-ex58-ud5 . I am using it with an external usb thumb key, as suggested, and It seems to work flawlessly.  I still have a couple problems / questions about that :

 

1) performance : graphical performance and cpu performance is lower using clover : 8400 (geekbench) compared to 9900 using chameleon and my dsdt. Any clue about how can i fix it?

2) vga connector does not work in clover, unfortunately ... i couldn't find anything how to get it working in clover. In snow leopard it is pretty "automatic" , but HDMI doesn't work in snow... any solution to get vga working on yosemite and to get it working on clover? I have black screen using  VGA connector with clover and it works ok with snow leopard with chameleon. I have nvidia card (geforce 210 1gb)

 

thanks!

Did you try to load VBios option in Clover bootloader ?

Tutorial How to :

 

Download your .rom videobios for your card and put it in EFI/Clover/ROM

format : "ID constructor"_"CardID".rom              (example: GPU Device Id: 10DE_0A65.rom) where 10DE = ASUS and 0A65 =card type)

 

You have to find your ROM here:  http://www.techpower...mType=&memSize=

 

or extract the rom from your graphiccard wilt GPU-Z under windows !  http://www.techpower...p-gpu-z-v0-8-1/

 

Good luck

:)

I think you should rather look in a apropriate topic for GTX 760 drivers !

 

For exemple: http://www.insanelym...60#entry2114057

 

Good luck

I'm stuck with a system that won't even post. I installed Yosemite and installed Clover. All was working fine for a couple days. Then one morning i came down and the machine was off and from that point forward it would not even boot or post, can't get to BIOS. 

 

Upon trying to boot i do get the splash screen of the GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5, but that's as far as it goes. So the fact that it does show me a page makes me think that the video card and motherboard are still ok?

 

I've replaced all the RAM and tried a couple other sticks and the results are the same. I've unplugged all harddrives, replaced all power to MB and video card multiple times and i'm still stuck.

 

This seems to be an issue for others and i faintly remember dealing with this myself in the past, but can't find a solution.

 

Also bought a new power supply as that was my first guess for resolving the problem. Corsair RM750 didn't fix the problem.

 

I'd love to keep this old rig going so i don't have to drop the money on a new build right now.

 

Anyone have any ideas of what might be dead or wrong?

 

Here are my spec's and again Yosemite was on and working with everything but imessage when it suddenly died.

 

Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield | GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 | OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3
WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM (x3) | XFX HD-687X-CNFC Radeon HD 6870 2GB GDDR5

have you tried a CMOS reset? there's a button on the back of your computer that you have to press (for a few seconds I think). 

For me, it sounds like a BIOS/Mainboard problem because you can't even get into the BIOS. Can you get into the BIOS flashing menu?

Usually you should be able to get into BIOS without anything attached except the power supply and RAM (and a graphics card with monitor hehe)...
