  1. Never again! Installed Paragon HFS+ for Windows and broke my OS-X 10.10 installation after a couple of boots. Booting in verbose mode tells me "Invalid volume file count" and after three tries to repair the volume, OSX surrenders, telling me the volume can not be repaired. I will try DiskWarrior now and i really suggest not to use this software, at least on the windows side.

    How to fix save picture normal (I have bug)

    I have the same problem. Can anyone provide the OpenCL from 10.9.5? I dont have it anymore.
  3. Okay, i try to summarise the steps i did on my system. Please keep in mind, depending on your system, some steps might be different. Creating the installer FYI: First we need to create our install medium. I don't know why, but using the createinstallmedia tool from apple didn't worked for me. So i had to do it the old way. In order to create a bootable flash drive, you will need: - Minimum 8GB USB drive formatted with Mac OS X Extended, Journaled partition. - OS X Yosemite Installation.app downloaded from the Mac App Store. Use Disk Utility to format your USB flash drive as a Mac OS Extended (Journaled) using a GUID partition table. Find the file named InstallESD.dmg within the Yosemite installer app by right-clicking (or Control+click) and choose Show Package Contents. Go to Contents - SharedSupport and double click and mount this disk image. (The dmg file might be hidden) You need to mount another file within InstallESD.dmg, and this file is named *BaseSystem.dmg”. Make sure your USB flash drive is mounted, and in Disk Utility, select BaseSystem.dmg (not OS X Base System) in Disk Utility’s sidebar, and then click the Restore tab in the right pane. Drag the USB flash drive name into the Destination box in the right pane. Then click the Restore button and a bootable OS X Yosemite base system will be created. If prompted, enter an Administrator user name and password. Open the destination USB flash drive and navigate to the System folder, and then open the Installation folder. You’ll see an alias named Packages. Delete that alias. Open the mounted OS X Install ESD volume, and you’ll see a folder named Packages. Drag that folder into the Installation folder on your destination drive (where the alias was). The folder is about 5GB in size, so the copy will take a while, especially if you’re copying to a slow flash drive. Source for this HowTo. One last step, i had to do, was new for me. Open up the OS X Install ESD volume and copy over the BaseSystem.dmg and the BaseSystem.chunklist to the root of your installer. Installing a boot loader to the installer FYI: I used clover in revision 2953 in my case. If there is a newer version out there, you might want to use that one. Double click the Install Clover 2k r2953.pkg and click continue Important: Do NOT click Install as it points to your current macintosh hd. Instead click on Change install location and choose your usb flash drive. Now click Customize and choose the following settings - Install for UEFI booting only - Install Clover in the ESP Under Drivers64UEFI choose - CsmVideoDxe-64 - OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Now click Install Copy over FakeSMC.kext I had to due two last steps to get the Yosemite installer to boot. I needed to copy over a FakeSMC to the EFI partition of my usb installer and had to configure the Clover config file. Otherwise i was not able to boot from it. If it is not already done, we need to mount the clover efi partition from our usb drive. To keep things simple, i downloaded the Clover Configurator tool. Click on Mount EFI - Mount EFI partition and choose your usb drive on the list of drives. Don't close the tool as we will need it in a second. See config.png Open the mounted partition within finder and navigate to EFI - CLOVER - kexts Within this folder, you need to create a new folder and name it 10.10 Open up the folder and copy your FakeSMC.kext into it. Optional: At this step i also copied the RealtekR1000sl.kext to get my ethernet to work. See kexts.png Go back to the Clover Configurator and load in the config file from the efi partition Under Acpi uncheck all Fixes acpi.png Under Boot check kext-dev-mode=1 boot.png Under Graphics configure your graphics card For example: I have a nVidia 560 so i unchecked "Inject Intel" and instead checked "Inject NVidia" and "Patch VBios" Those settings depend on your graphics card and might be different! graphics.png Save the configuration. With these steps i finally was able to boot from my usb drive and install yosemite on my system. After the installation is complete, use your usb drive to boot into your new yosemite installation. Redo the steps to install clover onto your hard drive and configure it with Clover Configurator. Once again, this are the steps which worked for me and my system. Things could be different for your personal system. If some steps are unclear, feel free to ask and i try my best to explain it. Acutally i think that there aren't any benefits of the UEFI bios instead the legacy one. But in my case, i didn't find any method getting the installer (regardless if using clover or chameleon) to boot with the F12 bios.

    Missing bluetooth controller Transport

    See the hints in your own thread! Forum rules... -> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/301713-clover-z68x-ud5-b3-missing-bluetooth-controller-transport/
  5. Thank you clipper! I updated to the UEFI Bios, using Clover r2953 with the sugested options from Pieroman in post #7 and a FakeSMC. Yosemite is running very well now!
  6. So i guess there is no way using the legacy bios (F12 for me) if you want to install yosemite?
  7. Using Chameleon or Clover makes no difference. I also can't get it to work under my Z68 and Yosemite. Gave it up some weeks ago after trying every single option you can imagine.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Hi MaLd0n, sadly i keep getting errors trying to compile a dsdt for GA EP45-DS3. Heres the log: [Line 176 type Error message Object does not exist (OSTP)] [Line 181 type Error message Object does not exist (\_SB.PCI0.PX40.AG3E)] [Line 182 type Error message Object does not exist (SLPE)] [Line 187 type Error message Object does not exist (\_SB.PCI0.PX40.AG3E)] [Line 189 type Error message syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_ELSE ] [Line 191 type Error message Object does not exist (\_SB.PCI0.PX40.AG3E)] [Line 201 type Error message syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_METHOD, expecting $end ] Any idea whats going wrong there? Can i use another motherboard model in the meantime? Compilation tried on SL 10.6.7 and 10.7. I would like to use the DSDT on Lion with ACL889a.kext like you already explained in another thread.
  10. Kann man eigentlich das Sicherheitsupdate 2010-005 gefahrlos installieren? Und das Snow Leopard Grafik-Update, macht das Sinn?
  11. Ah super, danke! Da stehen alle aus /E/E mit bei. Perfekt
  12. Hallo und danke für die Erklärung zum Update. Ich habe mit der Anleitung hier schon vor längerer Zeit SL installiert auf einem Gigabyte-P45-DS3. Nach dem Update jetzt habe ich aber eine Frage, müsste bei erfolgreich geladener SleepEnabler.kext die nicht auch im System-Profiler unter Erweiterungen angezeigt werden? Ich habe nämlich das Problem das keine der kexte aus /E/E unter dem System Profiler angezeigt werden. Der VoodooPowerMini aus /S/L/E hingegen wird angezeigt. Ist das so richtig?
