Missed CsmVideoDxe-64 on my install. Updated 21/06/15 #1: - I Forgot of the need of FakeSMC.kext. Updated 22/11/17 #1: - High Sierra 10.13.1 on ASUS Vivobook S400C (S400CA-CA178H). Prequel Hi, my name is Luan and today I will show how I installed the OS X Yosemite version 10.10.3 on my ultrabook. I know that my procedure maybe can be made in other ways, but this is about how I made it. I am part of this world for four years. Since the launch of XCode 7 and no need to sign the Developer Program to test applications on the iPhone, I decided to install OS X. God bless WWDC15 (I'm not religious, just a popular saying in my country). What works and what does not work - Processor -> Work. i5-3317U @ 1.7Ghz/2.6Ghz. SpeedStep 8 to 26 stages. AsusAICPUPM <true/> in Clover config.plist. - Video Card -> Work. HD4000. Full QE/CI. - Chipset -> Work. - HDMI -> Work. - VGA -> Not work. I did not have time to fix yet. - Audio -> Work. Kext VoodooHDA + AppleHDADisabler. - WiFi -> Work. Replaced by Athero 9285 Wifi/Bluetooth. - Ethernet -> Work. Kext Experimental Atheros AR81(31/32/51/52/61/62/71/72) Driver for 10.7/10.8. - Touchpad and keyboard -> Work. Kext ELAN, FocalTech and Synaptics (Smart Touchpad) Driver (Mac OS X). - FN keyboards keys -> Not work. I did not have time to fix yet. - Brightness control -> Work. DSDT patch. - Sleep -> Work. - Battery -> Work. Kext ACPIBatteryManager by RehabMan and DSDT patch (below). - Card Reader -> Not tested. I have no adapters. - Integrated Camera -> Work. Kext AnyiSightCam. - Bluetooth -> Work. Kext Bluetooth Firmware Uploader and ControllerPowerState change to 1. - Boot Logo -> Work. What I needed to install - Running install of Yosemite on VMware -> Downloaded version 10.10 via torrent (Google it). You can use a real Mac of an friend. I believe that Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8), Mavericks (10.9) also work. - Two USB flash drives of 8GB -> One for OSX install and another to the bootloader. This second not need to be 8GB, a 256MB is perfect. - OS X Yosemite install app -> Downloaded via App Store inside the virtual machine. I used version 10.10.3. - CloverEFI -> Also downloaded inside the virtual machine. I used build 3229. - DSDT patch skills -> Needed to battery works. How to patch DSDT. P.s.: You can use a single flash drive, in my install I used two because I don't wanted lose the os install created on the main flash drive. How I created flash cards Install flash drive: Partially used @snatch guide. More specifically this part: In the part above used the first flash drive (8GB). Bootloader flash drive: Format the second flash drive with GUID partition and Journaled file system type. If you want to use only one flash card, don't format! Downloaded the CloverEFI (used 3229) and installed with this options: Options: - Install for UEFI booting only - Install Clover in the ESP - Drivers64UEFI - CsmVideoDxe-64 - Drivers64UEFI - OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Will be created a partition named EFI. Edit the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist and change those values: - SystemParameters - InjectKexts - <true/> - Graphics - Inject - ATI - <false/> - Graphics - Inject - Intel - <true/> - Graphics - ig-platform-id - 0x01660003 - KernelAndKextPatches - AsusAICPUPM - <true/> P.s.: I will provide below my config.plist as attachment. Now you will capable to boot in installation, but your keyboard and mouse will not work. Let's fix that: - Download the Smart Touchpad kext from here. I used the version 4.3. This also enable the touchscreen. - Download the FakeSMC kext from here. I used the version 6.9.1315. This is very important. Can't boot without it. - Put the Kexts inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10/ Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess). BIOS Setup Configuration - Intel Virtualization Technology: Disabled - VT-d: Disabled - USB Configuration - XHCI Pre-Boot Mode: Disabled P.s.: BIOS version 210. Installing indeed - Plug in the two flash drives. - When appear the Asus logo, press ESC once to enter Boot Menu. - Select the flash drive name with UEFI prefix. In my case "UEFI: KingstonDataTraveler 2.0PMAP". - On CloverEFI menu, use arrow to mark the flash drive with de OS X install, press Space on keyboard and select: "Boot Mac OS X in verbose mode". - As usual, format your HDD or SSD as GUID and Journaled. Make more partitions if you need. Take a note of the OSX partition name you entered on Disk Utillity. - After that, go ahead as always and start the instalation. - Go in the kitchen grab some lunch. You deserve it. Post installation What we have so far? The system installed on your ultrabook. Now you need to get rid of bootable flash drive installing the bootloader on HDD or SSD. Installing the bootloader in internal HDD or SSD: - Boot again selecting the flash drive on Boot menu. Same you did before. - Now select the partition you noted early. - If you do everything wright, the system will start normally. - Now you will use the CloverEFI install package again (same options from above). This time, the target will be your OS X installed partition. Our adorable ultrabook don't boot EFI if partition on the HDD or SSD if isn't MS-DOS. We will need to format and install Clover again. - Open the Terminal and enter "sudo -s". - Run the command: "diskutil list". - Take note of what location is your EFI. Usually it is "rdisk0s1". Make sure it's correct or you loose your data. - Now, let's format it, now execute: "newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/rdiskXsX". rdiskXsX is your EFI partition location from line above. Now you need to copy all data of your flash card bootloader to the root of your new created EFI partition on internal disk. This EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with "diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXsX". Just restart without flash drives to test. Others Kexts: Download the kexts from the links below. I strongly recommend always use newest versions. If you are too lazy, I attach on end of the post. Ethernet: ALXEthernet Sound: VoodooHDA (You may have to select the output there in System Preferences) Battery: ACPIBatteryManager Bluetooth: BTFirmwareUploader Integrated Camera: AnyiSightCam All kexts will be placed inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10/, mount again this partition (diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXsX) for it.

I invite you to participate in the comments so that this topic becomes an easy-to-follow guide. The idea of doing this emerged from information exchanged with other members (proteinshake, MacPeet, zhangtemplar, MacUser2525, nitelava & apav) in topic titled "Fix my HP! Just a few random DSDT-edits to improve your HacMac experience." originally created by proteinshake. Main goals of this guide Explain manual procedures; Avoid "magical" utilities, but don't ignore them (they can sometimes be time/life savers); Make you become independent & aware of the inner mechanics of creating a functional Hackintosh, so that you can repeat & adapt those procedures for future hackintosh projects. *** AS THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS TOPIC, I WILL NEED SOME HELP TO GATHER ACCURATE INFORMATION *** HELP NEEDED, PLEASE READ THIS SECTION, THANKS! As I only own a Z400 Workstation, I'd need you (those who own Z600 and Z800 Workstations) to send me your lspci output. To do so, you have 2 options: Boot with a Linux LiveCD (see the Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links section at the bottom of this post); If you already have an OSX version installed, you'll need to install lspci (see the Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links section at the bottom of this post). Type the following command : lspci -nnvv >~/Desktop/lspci-nnvv_output.txt If you are using Linux, please also type this command (before creating the following, make sure you updated your BIOS to v03.57) : sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT >~/Desktop/DSDT.aml OR: sudo cat /proc/acpi/dsdt >~/Desktop/DSDT.aml (whichever works for you) Copy those files to a USB flash drive, send them to yourself by email or whatever other method you want. Then, reply to this topic mentionning which workstation you have, and attach the file(s) created above. ALSO, if you got Clover to boot your Z400 / Z600 / Z800 Worktation, PLEASE send us your config.plist so that we can have a starting point. I'm trying to switch from Chameleon to Clover, but I'm still unable to fix a Kernel Panic I have; I will report it with a screenshot soon in the comments, maybe some of you might know why I get it. Requirements Another Mac or Hackintosh machine; 8GB+ USB flash drive; BIOS updated to latest version (v03.57, 2013-09-20 release, found HERE); This is mandatory for 2 reasons : patched DSDT files included in this guide will not work (properly) if you use a different BIOS version; that latest BIOS version fixes possible erratic behaviours with Xeon 3600 & 5600 CPU series. Z400/Z600/Z800 specific files (see Z400/Z600/Z800 specific information sections further below). BIOS setup instructions (eventually, there will be screenshots) You must set your hard drive controller to AHCI+RAID mode, else you won't be able to use your SATA devices. ...

  3. Hello, everyone. I have an older Hackintosh. Running Yosemite. It was doing very well for me for quite some time until earlier this year. A few minutes after startup, and it crashes. I have tried the following: I removed all software that was set to launch on startup, including ProTec6. I have tried launching in safe mode. I have tried disconnecting the cables. I have tried disabling Ethernet in BIOS. That last option worked, and I then ran EtreCheck, and only saw that Sophos components were hanging around. (I must have removed Sophos at some point in the past.) No other significant errors were found, but I was unable to update EtreCheck without an Internet connection. Nor can I install Sophos anew without that connection. Connecting to the Internet will freeze the whole system a few minutes after starting. I suspect it might have been the VPN software I installed shortly before this craziness started. It was paid software (although I can't remember which right now), but I can't find any of its components among the running processes. I'm at my wits end... Any help will be gratefully acknowledged and acted on. FYI: Motherboard: Z97X-UD3H-BK CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K FY
  4. Hi to all! I've installed Yosemite on: - i5 4690 - ASRock H87M Pro4 (with intel ethernet I219-V) (IntelMausiEthernet, AppleIntelE1000 and RehabMan for I219V kexts) - 8gb ddr3 RAM - 1tb hard disk If I disable I219-V from BIOS, when I shutdown it, don't reboots (tested with all kexts) If I enable I219-V from BIOS, when I shutdown it, the system reboots. How can I fix this? Thanks!
  5. Hi, I've been attempting to install OSX on a Bay Trail tablet, a Linx 7, which I've installed a custom BIOS for which supports 64bit EFI. I know that basically nothing will work but ideally I'd like to see it boot to installation. I've tried: BDUtility to install Clover and download the HDRecovery for 10.10. After using FakeCPUID and changing the bus speed, I reached a power management panic. I installed NullIntelPowerManagement and the boot went further - until it reached the "still waiting for root device screen". I believe that my install USB is not being detected - the BIOS forces USB 3.0 (Intel) and I have to use a USB-OTG cable to convert the female microUSB port to a full sized USB port. I've been able to boot Ubuntu, Android, Windows etc like this. I believe this is down to a lack of a USB driver. I've tried the generic ones with no luck. Copying the HDRecovery to the internal MMC doesn't have any effect either - even when copying Clover to the EFI too it can't detect the internal storage. This is not SATA - it's, according to the BIOS, a Hynix chip connected via PCI / AHCI (option I'm given, neither works). It looks as if the system would boot if I could get it to pick up the install media, but neither of the two install options work. I've also tried: Yosemite Zone 10.10 - ACPI error, can't get past it BDUtility Mavericks / El Capitan - ACPI error, can't get past it BDUtility Lion - same Snow Leopard - not deteced by Clover I know that even if this does boot there's no way it will ever detect the internal MMC, however I could possibly install to a USB and run it off that. The only thing is getting the USB chipset detected. There's a huge amount of USB options in the BIOS, however changing some of them disables USB completely. Luckily my BIOS supports the touchscreen so I can change the setting back however. The tablet is dual boot at the moment - the firmware I'm using. One side is Android, with a 64bit EFI BIOS and unlocked options, the other side is Windows, with a 64bit EFI and locked BIOS. There's a selection screen on boot. I'm using the Android side currently - both have access to the internal MMC. Is there any way I can get the USB controller detected? Thanks, - meagain
  6. Hi guys, I recently installed OS X 10.10 Yosemite on my PC, everything was fine in the installation, video card already configured and working perfectly, the sound also had no problems, but I just can not connect to the internet, no connection with ethernet etc ... I tested some kex but it did not work. PC: Asus P5GC-MX/1333 Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0 GHz 2GB DDR2 ATi HD 5450 Realtek ALC883 HD Audio Atheros L2 Fast Ethernet  Network Screen Prints:
  7. Salve, sono riuscito a installare Yosemite sul mio PC usando la niresh, funziona quasi tutto ma ci sono dei piccoli problemi: 1)la batteria non viene rilevata 2)boot0 error all'avvio 3)il controllo volume da tastiera non funziona con il voodoo HDA 4)funziona solo la scheda video intel hd 3000 mentre la radeon 6770m non funziona, credo sia incompatibile. Qualcuno sa la soluzione a questi problemi? ho letto che si deve modificare il DSDT ma ho provato ed ho combinato casini. Grazie in anticipo del vostro aiuto
  8. Hi all, I have an assembled PC with the following specs: CPU: Core i5-2500k Motherboard: Asus P8H61-MLe Graphics: HD3000 Ethernet: Realtek I have custom DSDT and SSDT installed. Previously I had the Mavericks installed on my PC using Niresh distro. Recenltly I moved to Yosemite 10.10 using clover installation method in UEFI mode. The installation went smoothly. The system is also fully usable. I had Rehabman fakesmc, Mieze RTL8111, Voodoo PS2 controller and Realtek ALC kexts installed. Injected HD300 using DSDT. These are the only modifications I have done to vanilla system. Native CPU Power mangement is enabled. Currently I am facing two problems which are 1. System randomly freezes. Only I will be able to move the mouse, rest of the system hangs. (One thing I noted, if I start playing songs, even after GUI hangs, songs will continue to run) Initially I thought the problem is due to the Safari and moved to firefox. But I am still getting freezes. Updated to 10.10.1. Still the problem persists. This is completely annoying. 2. Screen glitches. Previously in mavericks, I have not seen glitches even a single time. So I believe HD3000 is fully supported and there wll be some way to fix it. Anyone else facing this problems ??? Please share some comments or ideas to rectify this problems. Thanks in advance. Mari
  9. Hi, last week I've been working with my AMD PC to install Hackintosh Yosemite (I tried to install Mavericks and I have the same problem) and all it's ok but the graphics are so bad and the resolution too (I can't change it or I don't know how). How can I fix the graphics problem? I haven't a graphics card but I have an APU with integrated graphics. This is my hardware : AMD A8-7600 APU Processor with Radeon R7 Graphics (integrated 4 Cores CPU + 6 Cores GPU) MSI Motherboard A78M-E35 2x 4Gb Crucial RAM DDR3 1600 Mhz No graphics card It's impossible to play any game... Thank you so much.
  10. Hi there Today I bought a new 27" display from Dell, the u2715h. Since my system is running with a gt8800 and I just have a dvi dual output I had to connect a hdmi adapter to a dvi d cable to connect this display. However, everything fine running this display at 2048 x 1152 @ 60 Hz but when I try to get full resolution to 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz I just get a black screen, the display tells me that it needs proper input, can't handle the signal. Any idea what I could try to fix this problem? Thx

  13. https://vid.me/RAeO These are 2 different drives. One is purely Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 on the SSD, and the other is Windows 8.1 on a Hard Drive. Look at the 3 boot options there in Clover UEFI. Yes I installed Windows UEFI mode Also. SO heres my complaint. There are 3 extra options that don't work to boot into Windows. How Can I get rid of those? i just wanna keep the OS X Yosemite disk, the recovery partition for Yosemite and the last one on the right as that is the one that helps me boot into Windows. BTW can any one guide me through how to make a backup from my Hackintosh SSD to a hard drive partiton, on the same drive as windows? What I did to install windows on the HDD: Unplugged my SSD Plugged my HDD Put in the windows USB installer for Windows 8.1 clicked advanced setup, made sure drive was clean Let it install as usual Went through post install business such as updates and the drivers installation Plugged up my SSD for my Hackintosh, changed the boot to Timeout=2 in Clover Configurator Went to the clover bootloader screen and saw that.
  14. Olá, o boot do meu Yosemite está muito demorado mesmo com o SSD, quando eu dou boot com o pendrive ele demora uns 4 segundo e normal demora uns 30..40s tem alguma forma de deixa o boot rápido iniciando normal?

    Yosemite wake problem

    Hi everyone, My fresh install UEFI clover Yosemite is working fine with the exception of waking up from sleep. 1. it goes to sleep just fine 2. wakes up by usb keyboard ok if done in a few minutes into the sleep 3. after a while (basically the longer the more likely to have the problem) won't wake up by usb keyboard ( when pressed the power LED will flash once, i can see the fan tries to turn on, but couldn't ). i have to push the power button and then the system boots up normally. there will be a message "you shut down your computer because of a problem" at login screen I have tried many combinations BIOS settings, config.plist (no patched DSDT.aml) . My install was based on http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302041-guide-asrock-h97-pro4-yosemite-with-clover-uefi-installation/ and the only difference is I am using iGPU. Any help is appreciated! relevant errors: system.log (when i boot up after) Dec 14 18:20:39 localhost kernel[0]: Sleep failure code 0x00000000 0x1f006700 Diagnostic and Usage Messages: 2014-12-14 6:20:40.386 PM powerd[27]: com.apple.message.domain: com.apple.sleep.failure com.apple.message.signature: Platform Failure com.apple.message.summarize: YES SenderMachUUID: 1F97CC0A-F1D6-3A56-BA08-E644AD7CCF82 2014-12-14 6:20:41.904 PM Unknown[17]: com.apple.message.domain: com.apple.assumes.failure com.apple.message.signature: B2D9FFC4-66B7-3739-AFFA-A7E4BDE84A2B:14188 com.apple.message.signature2: 0x0 com.apple.message.signature3: com.apple.telemetry com.apple.message.summarize: YES SenderMachUUID: 58CE43F8-5A2C-39D3-A9A2-94E048245A34 other settings: pmset -g (customized already) Active Profiles: AC Power -1* Currently in use: standby 0 Sleep On Power Button 1 womp 0 hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage darkwakes 0 networkoversleep 0 disksleep 0 sleep 15 autopoweroffdelay 14400 hibernatemode 0 autopoweroff 0 ttyskeepawake 1 displaysleep 15 standbydelay 120 my config.plist

    Signal loss on GTX 980

    Hi all! I just recently got my EVGA SC ACX GTX 980 and installed Yosemite as well. After a successful install, I installed the NVIDIA web drivers and put the graphics card on my board, but on either HDMI or Displayport, I get a signal loss. Yet, when I use a DVI cable, it works fine. From what I've been reading, many people have been getting issues with getting both to work. I have used all three of the drivers (f01-f03) and still get the same results. What exactly do I need to do in order to get both HDMI and displayport to work properly?
  19. Hi All, I've currently got Yosemite chugging along nicely, and want to get Windows 7 installed on a separate drive for gaming. I've got this setup currently, but want to change my windows install from an HDD to an SSD. Firstly, my setup: First my hardware: Gigabyte Z-87N-WIFI Intel 45670K Asus GTX 760 Corsair 1600 2x4GB Corsair 430w CMX PSU BX100 250GB SSD - OS X install drive WD 1TB HDD - 700GB HFS+ partition, 300GB NTFS Windows install partition M4 Crucial 128GB SSD - Where I want to run Windows in the future. Fractal Node 304 Case OS X Version: 10.10.2 Firstly, in my current setup I have an odd issue - I can see the Windows install from the Clover bootloader screen, but when I select it I get a blinking black cursor. However, by exiting Clover my machine automatically defaults to the Windows partition and so loads normally. This has been fine up until now. The first thing I tried to do is clone the partition directly. Even though it is 300GB compared to the SSD's 128GB, only 70GB is in use. I used EaseUS to do this, and the process seemed to go fine, however I can't get it the drive to boot. The drive shows up in Clover, but neither selecting it or exiting clover gives the desired effect. Exiting gives me a 'Please insert bootable media' message, whereas selecting the drive gives the same flashing cursor as before. So my question is two fold: Firstly, is there anything else I can do to try and clone my existing windows install to the new drive? I have tried to shrink the partition in diskmgmt.msc, but can't get it down to 128GB (despite being only 70GB). Is there any other software which is worth looking at? Secondly, if I install a fresh copy of Windows & thusly, am I going to screw up my clover install at all? Steps: 1. Disconnect all drives apart from 128GB SSD 2. Disable UEFI in bios. 3. Boot Windows 7 via USB and install as normal to SSD. 4. Re-connect all drives, hopefully get everything working. Sorry for the massive post, i'd really value any advice.
  20. I've been running a hackintosh for the last year which works well. However I now need to have intel virtualisation working with it due to developing with docker (and oracle's virtual box). Even though intel virtualisation is enabled in the bios (and also works in windows on the same machine - I use dual ssd one for windows one for OS X), it isn't working in OS X yosemite and I get virtual box reporting that I don't have an x86 compatible cpu but an i686 one - known to show than intel virtualisation isn't enabled). I know intel virtualisation is enabled by default on normal macs but has anyone got this to work with a hackintosh and how? Is there a way to confirm independently of virtual box that it is/isn't enabled? Not sure if clover can override the bios settings and disable it somehow? thanks, Specs intel i5 - 4570 Board: gigabyte Z87M-D3H OS : Yosemite 10.10.4 clover:3259 (Graphics 780ti)

    HP DV6 2150us install help

    Hello- So I have been trying dilligently for days to get OSX Yosemite installed on my HP Pavillion dv6 2150us laptop. I have tried all kinds of different flags and bios settings and in verbose i get all the way to a point where that screen looks like it changes to a GUI but it is garbled lines that i cant make anything of. I am looking for pretty much a walkthrough on how to get this working. I am using a legitimate copy of OSX Yosemite from my wifes MacBook Air but I would like to install El Capitan (which I can get from her MacBook when I update it). What would be the best bootloader for my install? Kexts? really any and all help would be appreciated. Attached are hardware and system info screenshots. Thank you all so much in advance. Its my first post but I have been lurking the forums for weeks getting tons of information from other's posts but I just haven't been able to get it right yet.
  23. Hello Hello! So a quick backstory so you all can understand my situation: I owned a MacBook Pro for 6 ish years and it's logic board up and died last month sometime. The thing is, I'm a musician and have several recording projects that I have been using my Mac for (countless hours of recordings) that are still on my old hard drive (along with 6 years worth of other {censored}) that I want to be able to access. Several weeks before my Mac died, I built a new PC for gaming and didn't intend on relying solely on it for all my computer needs so I hadn't looked into a hackintosh/OSx86 option before buying hardware. Thus explains my mish-mashed collection of hardware on my current build, which is: (CPU) AMD FX Quad-Core 4350 (Motherboard) Gigabyte 990-fxa-ud3 (Graphics) NVidia EVGA Geforce GTX 750 Ti SC *if there is any other info I need to supply, just let me know. So, yeah, anywho, without the finances to buy a new Mac right now, I've been struggling and digging through forums, google searching and the like trying to get an up and running OSx on my PC and have gotten close but oh so far away. I never wanted to turn to bothering people about it but I'm at a loss and need some direction. Let me tell you what I have tried so far, and what problems I've run into: So I had a semi-successful install of Mavericks via Niresh and the "beasts" from "you know who" (I've read enough of these forums to know not to mention them outright). I couldn't seem to get full graphics acceleration with it though (even with GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No) and even after it eventually recognized my GPU. But could not for the life of me get wireless working. I tried a ton of different kexts and an injectors related to my wireless card (previoulsy Rosewill RNX-N150PCe, now a Rosewill N900PCE, which is supposed to work with OSx OOB but still doesn't work) no results! These two problems make it impossible to try to run Logic Pro and any other application really without going insane. Anywho, I then started figuring a Vanilla install with Yosemite would be my best option, but can't for the life or me even get to the OSx install screen. I've tried various methods, most recently this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-updated-for-mavericks-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/ All this with an InstallOSx.app of Yosemite downloaded from the app store - it's most likely 10.10.5, if that matters. The most common problem I run into is when I am trying to boot from my USB Installer I just made, it will just straight reboot. When I did -v on my most recent attempt after following rockinron_1's guide I listed above it rebooted after showing this (first attachment) If I have gotten past this I just get kernel panics (second attachment) despite any bootflags I seem to shove in there. Any help is appreciated! Again, just let me know what other info I need to provide, if any. I thank you in advance for your time and effort.
  24. Hey all, I have successfully installed Yosemite on my Lenovo G570 Core i5-2450M with Intel HD 3000. I am getting full resolution 1360x768 on my external monitor [detected] by patching AppleIntelSNBGraphics.kext. I am using Chameleon boot loader. But I am neither getting QE nor CI on my external vga monitor!!! Please help. Please someone help.
  25. Ciao a tutti, con piacere ritorno su questo fantastico forum. Vengo da un'esperienza molto positiva con un dual boot Snow Leopard + Windows 7 su stesso hd di ormai un po' di anni fa. Tenuto il tutto fino a poco tempo fa, quando ho deciso di formattare e aggiornarmi un po'. Per ora voglio mantenere Windows 7 e vorrei far un dual boot con Yosemite. Immagino che la procedura che seguii per il dual boot con SL non sia adatta anche a Yosemite, nonostante abbia la stessa configurazione del pc. Oppure sì? Soprattutto, posso fare questa cosa con la motherboard Asus P5Q Pro Turbo (ormai un p'o vecchiotta) e il resto dei componenti che possiedo? Ho letto la guida generale di installazione cioè questa http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298452-updateguida-installazione-os-x-1010-yosemite/ e mi pare tutto chiaro. Ora, come posso procedere per il dual boot Yosemite + Windows 7? Configurazione in firma. Grazie a tutti coloro che vorranno darmi una mano! Ale
