Can this be done on MSI motherboards?

 

it can be done on ANY EFI boards, but we don't recommend doing it unless there is a backup of some sort, if something goes wrong, and you only have 1 bios, you fragged your board by flashing the bios.

Hello all. Been lurking for a while and decided to give Oz a go on my GA-Z77N-WIFI. Downloaded a modded bios from the German forum for F3 and the 149x (sorry don't have details in front of me at the moment). Q-Flash went fine but I can't get anything to boot. Vanilla 10.10.1 USB boots very slowly from white logo on black screen and then shows the no parking symbol (still waiting for device). I get the same if I try booting a formally working chimera partition (still has some kexts). I removed the EFI folder from an old Clover attempt just to ensure that I was booting vanilla but I see that there is some reference to EFI/Oz etc. I thought Oz was the boot loader but it still needs to load an EFI partition? Any ideas as to what is up? I also tried doing my own patch with MMTool but get the same no parking symbol result... Finally: tried checking a new build of Oz was up but the site appears offline?
Hmm Oz version on that modded bios was probably 1479.

other solution, boot with {command + V} and see what is lagging out... it could be as simple as the bootflag kext-dev-mode=1 is not set (so fakeSMC is not loading...)  I keep with the version I know works and doesn't have issues with the Fusion Drive setup I run that is 894m, also available from that Ozmosis repo.

 

I am willing to help troubleshoot just post the info requested.

I already started my own thread here, but it's Ozmosis related so I figured I'd post here too. I flashed Ozmosis 1479 on my z77x-ud5h installed Yosemite and got it up and running. I tried using migration assistant to copy over my data and now I get kernel panic. The TM backup was taken from my hack which had 10.10 installed using Clover. I would guess that is what is causing issue but not sure what to do. Please, any and all help is welcome. Thanks!

 

-picture can be found on my thread i linked to

 

Solved:

 

kext-dev-mode=1 was not added to boot arguments prior to migration so kext dependencies are causing KP

Welcome to the land of Freedom!!!  Freedom from having to worry about what the next revision is going to frag in the boot loader ;P

go into the shell, (use f12) and edit your boot arguments.

not sure what the command in your version of the shell is to edit the nvram is, so check the command list with: help b

the KP is happening because you don't have kext-dev-mode=1 flag enabled. so your kernel is flipping out with the non signed KEXT's.

for those who are still having iMessage issues with Ozmosis. use a Hex Editor to implement your ROM Value in the ozmosisDefaults.ffs file.  I have 3 legit macs to savage ROM/MLB information from but the ROM hex codes always have/gave me an invalid char like a backspace, or del, or CR.  so after some frustration I manually edited the defaults plist with a hex editor to match what I needed it to show  the ROM to be.

 

once I booted it up the matching ROM/MLB activated everything just fine.

 

HBP.
