    OS X Yosemite DP's builds!

    r2695 with fat efi partition works for me. Both for the installation U disk (I delete all my drivers from U disk) and recovery generated by yosemite installation. P.S. I put drivers (fakesmc etc) both in 10.10 folder and other folder.

    However, I never use the touch command and other kextcache command, but yosemite boots nicely. What does this command do actually? I googled and find that for existing files, touch just change the time stamp. How is it related to our issue? DESCRIPTION The kextcache program creates kext caches, which speed up kext loading operations. It is invoked auto-matically automatically matically as needed to rebuild system caches. Caution: Incorrect use of kextcache can render a volume incapable of startup. Installers and adminis-trators administrators trators should not use this program to update system kext caches. Instead they should run touch(1) on the /System/Library/Extensions/ directory of the installation target volume after they have finished, which invalidates the existing caches and causes the system to update all necessary kext caches. kextcache -update-volume can be used to wait for this process to complete. See ``Apple Developer Technical Q&A QA1319: Installing an I/O Kit Kext Without Rebooting'' for information on updating kext caches on prior releases of Mac OS X. kextcache(8) Mac OS X Manual Page

    What you need is a usb keyboard. ps2 drivers are not loaded in single user mode

    I am afraid the test version clover for injecting kexts doesn't work. I put fakesmc and ps2 drivers in 10.9, 10.10, and other folder and tried to boot the recovery created by my Yosemite installation. But still stuck....

    Is it possible to use the boot args from the clover or chameleon, rather than the nvram thing? I mean just add kext-dev-mode=1 to clover or chameleon. It is strange. Several people in the Chinese forum succeed and others don't. I failed because of not loading the fakesmc...even we use the same one...

    Hey p.H. It is about unicode. When you open ioreg with IORegistryExplorer, sometimes you can only find unicode there like this "*". And you need to covert it into the hex form when editing dsdt. The information is provided in wikipedia "Unicode" entry. I explain this in one of my pcbeta threads about modifiying the AppleHDA.kext for 10.8GM.
  7. Here is a new way to install mac os on mbr partition without OSInstall mbr patch. 1.Go into a PE on your pendisk. 2.Convert your mbr harddrive to guid harddrive. There are several tools here. We use diskgenius or disktool in China. 3.You can not go into your windows system now because of the convertion. But you can now install Mac OS X Mavericks. 4.After Installation, reboot and go into your PE on pendisk. (Don't go to OS X now) 5.Convert your guid harddrive to mbr harddrive. And make sure your windows partition is active. 6.Reboot to your windows and you can install Chameleon. 7.Reboot into your Mac OS X Mavericks. Not tested yet....
