When extra kext you have install in S/L/E or in bootloader folder? 

In bootloader folder.

Once after boot with -x and clear kernel cache and reboot all was fine and without any freeze until i reboot:

Ethernet ok

Lsi Sas ok

This happens only once

Hi guys,

 

Great to see you are helping each other.

 

Unfortunately, I won't be able to finish this guide, as I got really busy with other things in my life (new job, new projects and now mainly using gentoo Linux as my main OS) and also because I do not own that Z400 Workstation anymore.

It was glad to help this community!

 

So, I invite any of you to start, if needed, a new thread and copy the guide I've created to make it evolve.

 

If you do create a new thread, please let me know in a private message (I won't follow this thread anymore) so I can add your thread link in the main post.

 

Best Regards,

Hi,

 

There have been many replies on this post and I am finding it difficult to collate everything I need to install El Capitan on my Z600. I have tried various solutions on the replies and some are for yosemeite and some for z400's. If you would be so kind, please could you give me a step by step guide on installing El Capitan on a z600 with dual nvidia quadro 290 cards.

 

I have tried with clover and am currently stuck on panic cycle. backtrace shows AppleUSBUHCIPCI as the top line with a list of dependancies. I am currently lost in the world of :

1. what is a DSDT file and do I need one?

2. where exactly to I  need to copy these Kexts ( EFI) and/or USB/S/L/E and/or somewhere else?

3. Chown -R does not work to fix ownership of these kexts, how do I fix and do I need to ?

4. what is clover doing for me automatically ? do I need to bother copying kext if it has them and injects?

5. how is El Capitan driver signing working, is it preventing the kextx from being used? if so how do I get around this? is clover getting around this?

6. should I use chameleon instead ? if so what is the procedure?

 

My current setup is a sandybridge pc running 10.7.5. It started off as snow leopard a few years back and has progressed. I would like to get this z600 up with the latest osx so I can migrate to it.

 

Thank you in advance

I'm having major problems getting 10.11 working on this box. Going to use 10.10.5. Others are reporting issues with freezing and glitching with 10.11

Good News:

The Enoch Method works for 10.11 - El Captain.

On other Mac / Hack:

Create an El Captain 8GB USB via the Enoch installer.

Use Kext Wizard to install Micky's Block Storage Kext (posted on page 1) and rebuild / repair permissions in extra on USB.

 

Update on "AHCIPortInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext" and "IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext" - these kexts cause USB kernel panic, do not use for El Cap install!

Boot from USB:

Use the following flags to get into the installer:

-x
-f
-v
PCIRootUID = 0
GraphicsEnabler = Yes
Nv_disable = 1

Hope this helps anyone trying to get this working on El Cap.
