May I just ask you how did you do it?

The yoga book runs on an atom x5.

Or you are just using an emulated ox on a virtual machine?

Thanks!

EFI.zip

Here is attached EFI folder which is working in Lenovo yoga book for booting El Captian installed on 32GB USB3.0 Flashdisk, installation USB was created with ( u n i b e a s t ) and then installed on External 32GB USB 3.0, I used micro USB hub to connect external USB flash drives and External keyboard/mouse for installation and after running MACOS from external USB drive, Touch screen wifi and Bluetooth not working, as usual, i can upload Installed Image but file size is approximately 12.6 GB.

I am still looking for some info to rotate the display.

I hope the above info will be helpful for someone.

Thank you so much for sharing the details and even attaching the whole EFI folder!

I was pretty sure that it was not possible to run OSX on atoms since a long time. I remember doing it when lion was out, but I always read that support for atom cpus ceased since then.

 

Which version of OSX are you running? Except for the screen rotation (and, I suppose, wifi/bluetooth/stand-by and pretty surely "keyboard") how is the general system responsiveness? Is graphic acceleration working?

 

It sounds extremely interesting since I also have other machines running atom X5s cpu. I'm still very cinfused.

Thanks again
