I've installed Yosemite 10.10.1 successfully on my rig :-

 

AMD FX8350 processor

ASUS M5 A78L-M USB 3 Motherboard

8 Gb DDR3 Ram

AMD Radion HD7770 Graphics card

 

You'll need

 

Niresh Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 DMG

TransMac (trial version)

8Gb USB stick

About 45 Mins

 

Optional downloads (you'll need these to get the Ethernet & Audio working)

 

All in one Audio Package

All in one Ethernet package (copy these 2 zip files on to a spare USB stick for later)

 

 

Create the bootable USB using TransMac (follow the Yosemite install guide)

 

I booted from USB using the following boot flags

 

/amd1 npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

Format your HDD partition to mac os extended (journaled)

 

You can either customise the boot loader at this point and add the above boot flags (recommended) or just install and run the Chameleon Wizard (found in Finder - Applications) after the installation. You must still enter npci=0x2000 GraphiceEnabler=No once it reboots if you don't customize now. 

 

Once installation is complete the system reboots and you can select your location and keyboard but don't try and connect to the internet yet as the ethernet driver is not installed. Create an account and then let the Niresh configuration scripts run.

 

Once all the scripts have configured you should run the Chameleon Wizard now if you didn't customise the boot loader earlier

 

You can now install the Ethernet and sound packages. (just click on the zip file and then the package file)

Once the 2 packages have installed - reboot

 

You should now have ethernet / internet working :D

To get the sound working, open system preferences - sound, and make sure you have line out selected in the "play sound effects through" tab.

 

Thats it. You are good to go.

 

Thanks to Niresh for all his great work.

Enjoy

 

Jolly ;)

Hey!

Would it work on my rig? I have the same Motherboard (Asus M5A78L-MUSB3) and an AMD Processor (AMD Athlon II X4 640). I know that my graphics is compatible (NVidia GT 630)
