@rasrita T'est sur que tu boot UEFI?

Salut Wizard of Oz,

 

Oui, je suis en boot UEFI, voici un détail de ma config HDD, où tu peux remarquer que le Type de carte de partition est GPT, et non MBR

C'est une installation Windows 8.1 UEFI, donc j'utilise Clover BootLoader

@madhan15791 Delete the Bluetoth kexts and it will work fine.

Finally got everything to work....only 1 problem...how do I add clover bootloader so that when I boot up, I get the clover.menu... I am able to boot only into windows without the clover USB.
I guess I would have to install clover to the efi partition on the ssd but I don't see a EDI partition from Mac...I am able tonsee it only in windows..
And also please tell me if anyone knows to how to remove the unnecessary boot drives from.clover.l boot menu. Right now it shows many options like my partitions along with mavericks and windowas.I want it to show only windows or mavericks when booting up. In short how do I edit the boot options or settings of the clover bootoader.

Hey everyone!  Thanks for all the responses and I am glad that many of you have a working installation!  I hope mo.1's additions make it even better.  As you can tell from my name, I don't use the mac install much so apologies for slow responses to questions :)

 

A number of people messaged me about using this for everyday use - well, it works fine when I need it (usually for fixing other people's macs so basic disk utilities, etc) and occasionally I need to use/test a mac-only program.  I have never have problems except for glitchy trackpad.  As for your principal laptop, I dunno if it is worth have such an amazing laptop but not fully getting all the hardware advantages (video card).  For me, I like the extra geek cred for having a triple-boot and because I need basic things from a mac install to fix other people's macs and harddrives sometimes.  Otherwise it's linux (mint) all the way for me.

 

Continue to enjoy the tutorial.  In a month or so I am going to fiddle around some more and see if I can't get more hardware working based on the suggestions here and some config tweaks, will update the guide then.  If you installed additional kexts or did some config mods that helped get things working better, please post them here so I can include them.

 

xo, lg

Hi,

 

I got mine working aswell.

 

What I have done is installed Niresh and Clover UEFI (Yes UEFI!) and changed a few things in clover in order to get my Intel HD 4600 Working. I have successfully made my wireless working with a kext I have found on google.

 

However, I am stuck with the audio because I couldn't figure out where was the kext. The redirection to google is not very clear.

 

Edit : VoodooHDA 0.8.4 did it.

 

Any chance to get internal microphone?

 

Thanks

By the way, the Ethernet Killer E2200 works flawlessly : http://www.tonymacx8...ller-e2200.html

Hi, 

I went through the installation process twice, and I just can't dance because Mac OS does not load from the SSD after being installed.

 

in verbose mode the loading stops at some point, not always the same depending on the flags and plugged devices, then waits for 2-3min and then shows

Resetting IOCatalog
I've tried to move away the intel graphics related extensions and booting with these flags :
-v PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x2000 dart=0 -cpus=1

but nothing seems to make me pass this point...

I also deleted bluetooth kexts and didn't include Elan kexts just in case it would be the problem

Can anyone help me ?

 

PS: I tried jamesst20's method with Niresh + Clover but i couldn't boot from the key, just a black screen with cursor blinking.
