Waa Waa Waa Waaaaaaaaaa

 

Can't get past Step 2.

 

Failed to start erase of disk due to error (-9999, 0)

A error occurred erasing the disk.

 

Running in a Snow Leopard VM (VirtualBox) with 10.6.8 Combo Update loaded.

 

Any advice?

I have the 'Install OS X Yosemite.app' in my Snow Leopard Application folder. I downloaded the update from the app store.

This guide works with pretty much any UEFI Clover install

I can't get it to install Yosemite.  Maybe because I didn't do step5?  Not sure what to do there.  Giving me boot errors at the very beginning.

As Step 5 states its the hardest part, you need to research what settings you need for your specific system, nothing I can do for you, that is something you need to do on own on

This guide worked extremely for me, and I had not a issue using it.

 

I've tried most "1-Click" USB creation tools for Hackintosh (excluding tonymac <-- censor pls), and I must admit, this is the most quick and uncomplicated method I have seen yet!

 

Thank you, Pavo.

Hey, thanks for the guide.

 

I tried to install Yosemite via the Legacy method on a fresh SSD. It worked out until the first reboot.

I can't boot anything, not OSX and not Clover from USB.

 

I'm using a X58 motherboard from Gigabyte and a Nvidia graphics card.

Maybe I have to change something on the USB to make Clover boot? If I remove the SSD from the System I can boot into Clover without a problem.

 

Do you have any hints? I completed steps 1 to 5. On step 5 I adjusted the start arguments with nv_disable=1 and -v

 

Edit

 

I just used FakeSMC.kext and nothing else.

The EFI Volume doesn't show up after I install Clover to the USB? .. What can I do to fix it ?

 

You've formatted your Penboot like GUID Partition Table?

with the latest clover 2.3 revision 3333, I cannot see the EFI partition. I have formatted using Master Boot record and installed clover to the USB. when I looked into the USB, EFI folder was inside the USB not in a separate partition... is this normal ? could it be that with the newer version of clover no EFI partition is showing up ? Also, I am trying to do legacy install on a lenovo B570 laptop with core i3 2350M CPU, intel hd 3000 GPU

Got the exact same problem but with the UEFI-Method. ...after first reboot my "UEFI Corsait USB Stick" Bootoption didn't show up anymore. There only was a new "Mac OS X" but both are not bootable. I'm not able to get into the Clover Bootloader again, even after complete reinstall of the stick I wasn't able to boot again. What's happening here!?

just a question please. I have an old motherboard (X58-based). The BIOS is text-based unlike the BIOS present in a more recent motherboard I have which is GUI. So I guess I need to pick the Legacy option? thanks again! :)

Hi guys,

I followed the steps for the UEFI install, but I am stuck on Root device UDID IS: (Insert UDID here)

Any help?

My CPU is a Celeron N2940. I do have a kernel for the celeron chip lying around somewhere, but with this method (using createinstallmedia) I can't seem to find anywhere I can insert the kernel file. 

Cheers,
Cameron.
