I was able once to get to the desktop after install on z800 using all files provided here. Then I ran this post installer and I could not boot anymore What is the procedure once you run this installer does it replace the needed kext or do i have to manually add them again? I am not understanding it right maybe. Also I had all disk connected in sas and sata ports along with 2 raid cards along with onboard LSI raid and to my surprise it booted fine inside after the first install. Doing the post install thing for z800 provided here did not work for me. But I will try it again.
I used Rockey's bios settings for z800 and I see my bios has more options then his. what version of bios you running? my is lates 3.57 i think.
Thanks for info
Also for the osx beta is that just the update after or should i install it on the usb ? Thanks
Yeah, I had the same issue with the post installer. I had to manually install Clover to the EFI Partition. The issue is that your EFI partition hasn't been selected as active which is why it isn't booting up.
Here's the manual terminal command:
1. Open Terminal
2. sudo -s
3. your password
4. fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
6. f 1
This should activate the EFI partition.
You may want to mount it to check.
1. Diskutil list
2. locate EFI partition to determine mount point (disk0s1 in this example)
3. mkdir /Volumes/efi
4. mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/efi
Ensure your Kext files and DSDT live inside there. This is also a good time to manually install Clover (so you won't need the USB key).
In my case, I mounted both EFI partitions (one from USB key and the target HD install for EL Cap) and copied from bootable USB to EL Cap EFI. Then I ran the activate command posted above.
Yes. I'm saying that the ESP isn't loading correctly with the post installer and wanted someone else to confirm its working for them. It might be something simple like mounting the EFI partition before running the install.
