Most of the guides above haven't yet been updated for Yosemite but will give you the general idea.  Easier to install Mavericks first, then create a Yosemite USB while in OSX...


Good Luck!

For years now I have used the hacks of this guy http://rutracker.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4755224 - this is a link to a Russian tracker site. The description is all in Russian, which is not a problem for me, since I'm Russian, but for you... may Google translate be with you :)

I have found it after I could not install any of the other solutions including Niresh. This solution is installed on a MBR partition. I found his procedure to be the easiest of all. No need for a mac. You will need a couple of programs - to make the partition, and to unzip the system. The system is preinstalled, all you do is, basically, unzip it - not with winrar, but with R-drive. The additional programs are in the tracker too.

There is a fly in the ointment - it always takes minutes to load the system after you have installed it. I thinks it loads longer than Windows. After you press the ON button you'll have plenty of time to go to the toilet :) Maybe, something can be done to fix it But after it has loaded, everything works like a charm.

I see this year the guy has made a Uniвеаst installation http://rutracker.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4856527 but I haven't tried that procedure. Something tells me to stick with the one that loads slower, but I know definitely that for me it works. I still have a Mavericks system, and I am not sure whether I want to install Yosemite at all for the time being. Just because everything works perfectly. As we say in Russian, the better is the the enemy of the good.

After install Niresh 10.9,seems I still need put DSDT.aml to Niresh root extra folder,which need windows Macdrive ACPI patcher AIDA64 to do that. After that,I can do DSDT Editor patches to AIDA64 DSDT and 10.9.5 vanilla which is recommend by this forum.
