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 -> Tick.png Work. i5-3317U @ 1.7Ghz/2.6Ghz.  SpeedStep 8 to 26 stages. AsusAICPUPM <true/> in Clover config.plist. 
- Video Card -> Tick.png Work. HD4000. Full QE/CI.
- Chipset -> Tick.png Work.
- HDMI -> Tick.png Work.
- VGA -> Cross.png Not work. I did not have time to fix yet.
- Audio -> Tick.png Work. Kext VoodooHDA + AppleHDADisabler.
- WiFi -> Tick.png Work. Replaced by Athero 9285 Wifi/Bluetooth.
- Ethernet -> Tick.png Work. Kext Experimental Atheros AR81(31/32/51/52/61/62/71/72) Driver for 10.7/10.8.
- Touchpad and keyboard -> Tick.png Work. Kext ELAN, FocalTech and Synaptics (Smart Touchpad) Driver (Mac OS X).
- FN keyboards keys -> Cross.png Not work. I did not have time to fix yet.
- Brightness control -> Tick.png Work. DSDT patch.
- Sleep -> Tick.png Work.
- Battery -> Tick.png Work. Kext ACPIBatteryManager by RehabMan and DSDT patch (below).
- Card Reader -> Not tested. I have no adapters.
- Integrated Camera -> Tick.png Work. Kext AnyiSightCam.
- Bluetooth -> Tick.png Work. Kext Bluetooth Firmware Uploader and ControllerPowerState change to 1.
- Boot Logo -> Tick.png 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:
 

Format a 8GB+ USB with GUID partition mapping and name it Install.
Insure the OS X Yosemite.app is in your Application folder.
In terminal run the following script.
 
sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction
 
This will take several minutes so be patient, the script will notify you when complete.

 
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:
Screen_Shot_2015_06_17_at_7_23_30_AM.pngScreen_Shot_2015_06_17_at_7_23_39_AM.png
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.
 
Now we need to add Battery patch to a new DSDT:

Hi,

 

The FN keys perhaps can be fixed by opening the ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist

			<key>Fn keys Layout</key>
			<string>NONE</string>
			<key>Fn keys Mode</key>
			<integer>2</integer>

To:

			<key>Fn keys Layout</key>
			<string>ASUS</string>
			<key>Fn keys Mode</key>
			<integer>3</integer>

For the brightness keys to work, it could be you have to install the ACPIDebug.kext by RehabMan to find the right EC query and edit the DSDT. 

In my case, in the DSDT the keyboard device is KBD0, Brightness up is _Q1C, brightness down is _Q1D.

 

My DSDT edit to go with the ApplePS2SmartTouchpad: 

               Method (_Q1C, 0, NotSerialized)  // _Qxx: EC Query
                    {
                        Notify (KBD0, 0x10)
                    }

                    Method (_Q1D, 0, NotSerialized)  // _Qxx: EC Query
                    {
                        Notify (KBD0, 0x20)
                    }

This however is on an Acer, needs to be researched on the ASUS like described above.

Thanks.

 

I'm developing in Xcode 7 and playing Netflix on second monitor22" in fullscreen. No freezes, no hangs.

 

Follow Geekbench 3 32bit (I'm sorry, free licence):

 

Single-core: 2216

Multo-core: 4478

It's good those values?

Hi,

 

I'm trying to follow this guide to install yosemite on a S400C.

 

It's my first hakintosh so maybe I'm doing something wrong.

 

The thing is I get stuck at boot just after the message:

AppleLPC::start - Could not find IOPlatformPlugin driver

I'm booting with the default flags and -v -x

 

I've searched for the error and I seem to find it on upgrades not on fresh OS installs.

 

What can I do to get it to boot?

 

thanks!

Were your settings exactly the same as the guide's? Or did you use the guide to install Yosemite and then upgrade to El Capitan?

After trying for a few hours I still can't get the installer to boot for El Capitan :/

 

Could you link me a zip of your Clover EFI folder?

 

Thanks A lot,

Hi Brumas, your link does not longer work.

 

Could you please reaupload?

 

Did you get "El Capitan" to work?

 

Thanks!

"El Capitan" version 10.10.1 I installed almost everything works, except - stopped working the touch screen, and it shows 4gb memory installed 8gb physically. link to efi -https://yadi.sk/d/kctif_Ukk5b2B, ( to reduce the size of some files (themes) have been removed. wifi -Atheros 9285.

      Hi everybody,
       
      I'm new here and French. 
      I success to hack my Asus X751LJ and pass it to High Sierra 10.13.6, not easily, and everything works except the keyboard and the touchpad.
      I tried VoodooPS2Controller, ApplePS2SmartTouchpad, even VoodooI2C, but nothing works...
      Could someone help me? Is there a DSDT problem? Witch kext should I use?
      I post my ACPI and Kexts folders and my IOReg.
      Please... Help me. I'm desperate...

      Hey guys,
      I hope you can help me solve a mystery.
      Even the amazing Mald0n has been working hard to help me find a solution, but now were are both stuck.
      Creative thinking or maybe just help to see the forest for the trees would be highly appreciated.
       
      PROBLEM:
      Mac will not sleep.
      Monitors sleep fine, and come back on with touch of keyboard.
      GPU and CPU coolers are constantly running on idle to low load and will not go on standby no matter what we have tried.
      Even when using full “Shut down” via apple menu the lights from the MoBo or GPU are pulsing slowly, which they normally dont as far as I recall.
      (This specific issue could possibly be solved by using ErP Ready in BIOS. Haven´t tested this since that´s a smaller issue ATM)
       
      Everything else seems to be working fine.
      This problem started appr a week ago, and I have no idea why.
      No major installs, updates or changes that I can think of.
       
      GOALS:
      • To be able to activate sleep via apple menu.
      • To have it sleep within 15-30 secs and wake up quickly (like it did before) via push on Power button

      TECH SPEC:
      • Running 10.13.6
      • Asus Maximus X Hero Wifi
      • Gtx 1080 Ti
      • 32 GB Corsair RAM
      • Intel i7 8700K
      • 2 monitors via Displayport
      • 6 internal disks (2 HDD, 4 SSD)
      • 1 external backup
      • 1 internal USB hub/SD reader
      • 3rd party Bluetooth and Wifi (Asus MB not compatible)
      • No Blutooth mouse, KB etc

      WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR:
      • Used Mald0n’s custom DSDT with latest config
      • IUpdated to latest Security Update
      • Updated to latest BIOS
      • Updated NVIDIA webdriver and CUDA to latest
      • Disconnected LED monitors and tested with old Mac monitor via DVI to see if Displayports were the issue
      • Disabled Adobe CC Sync
      • Run CleanMyMac
      • No start-up apps or extensions in System Prefs
      • Disk Utility: checked all disks
      • Terminal: no info on wake reason at all. (Possibly because it doesn´t sleep, hence nothing is interrupting it).
      • Blutooth allowed to wake sleep: set to OFF
      • Power manager: only setting is “never switch off monitors”. The rest are off/unchecked
      • BIOS: Tested by setting "ErP ready" to S5 > no difference
      • DSDT and EFI folder screenshot attached.

      I think that’s it - otherwise just ask
      I have read a lot of articles on this type of issue, but none with a clear answer.
      So if anyone can solve this mystery, it would be amazing!
      Thank you in advance!

      UPDATE:
      Of course it was something seemingly insignificant and stupid that prevented sleep: An unfinished PRINTER job.... 
      After clearing the printer queue, it went to sleep but woke up immediately after due to a USB power issue. Possibly an internal USB/SD hub.
      Mald0n used his magic and made a new DSDT file to fix that, and now the machine is running almost perfectly apart from a fickle Bluetooth (fingers crossed).

      Hope this can help others out there with issues.

      I have tried to install clover via no UEFI legacy mode (and with UEFI method) using the method here (http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-desktop-guides/144426-how-install-os-x-yosemite-using-clover.html)
      both times I can get to just past the clover boot screen and it freezes after that.
      I have verbose (-v) selected in boot options: On the non-UEFI install then it hangs on:
      "Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key>...."
       
      I have had a lot of issues with trying to get the installer working and many different things that had to be disabled but now it just gets to here and stops. Some times it will glitch out on this screen and give me a the circle with the line through it and text garbage around it where the text in the pictures are.
       
      Need help please.
       
      This is the laptop im using the specs are the same nothing has changed.
