OS X 10.10.3 on Haswell PC
3 3

Question

Hi!

I installed niresh OS X 10.10.1 without any problem on my haswell pc using /haswell flag. But I updated to OS X 10.10.3 and I can not start my Mac since I've got an I7-4770K. I tried to copy your haswell patch to my kernels folder using the installer's terminal, but I couldn't because I didn't find the "cp -f" code to copy it from my USB Installer to the Kernels folder. I hope someone will help me.

Specs:

-I7-4770K

-MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX

-MSI GTX760 2GB DDR5

-8GB RAM DDR3

-OS X Installed on a Samsung 120GB SSD.

Regards!!

I am trying to update it with "OS X 10.10.3 updater" but I can´t because once it downloads the file, at the middle of the installation it gives me an error and it breaks my OS X Installation, because if I reboot it gives me instant reboot, and if I don´t the Mac crashes. Please help me I need OS X 10.10.3!!

1. Download this kernel. It's a patched haswell kernel for 10.10.3. (I'm not on haswell, so can't promise that it'll work).
2. Place the kernel in your root directory of your OS X volume
3. Download the 10.10.3 combo update (or if you used Niresh' updater there's a backup install on your desktop. Open it).
4. Install the update. Boot with '/kernel'. 
5. If your system boots, open terminal and write  defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

6. Go to /System/Library/Kernels/ and rename kernel to kernel.backup
7. Move the kernel out of your root directory to /System/Library/Kernels/
8. Make the kernel hidden (e.g. with invisibliX)

9. open terminal and write  defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles NO

10. Repair permissions

Edit: just realized that you updated to 10.10.3 already.

mv  /System/Library/Kernels/kernel  /System/Library/Kernels/kernel.backup
cp   /path/to/your/kernel/kernel   /System/Library/Kernels/

Unable to install Yosemite Zone.dmg in Acer Aspire E5 571 33YS notebook

I tried to install Yosemite Zone.dmg (10.10.1) in intel i3 haswell PC with a USB (disk image restored with transmac) using boot flag  /haswell –no-zp –x  and formatted the whole 1 TB hard drive with Mac OS extended (journaled). 

Thereafter I made 5 partitions. First partition is ‘Yosemite HD’ (190 GB, format Mac OS extended (journaled), Second partition is ‘Cinema’ (250 GB) , format -ExFAT  Third is ‘Windows 8.1’ (160 GB), format MS-Dos (FAT). Fourth is ‘Songs Videos’ (260 GB), format ExFAT. Fifth is Documents (120 GB), ExFAT.

After that, selected Master Boot Record and clicked ‘Partition’ tab only to get the error “Could not mount disk2s6 with name Documents after erase”.  After partitioning, I selected “Yosemite HD” to install Yosemite 10.10.1 and when I completed installing the distro in “Yosemite HD” I got the installation error saying “OS X  could not be installed on your computer. The Operation could not be completed.  Undefined error 0. Quit the installerto restart your  computer and try again.” When I restarted my computer I got “boot0ss: error_”

 I did the installation again,   but here before restarting the computer  I went to ‘Terminal’ and typed the following commands.

cp  –f  /Volumes/“Image Volume”/haswell  /Volumes/ Yosemite”/System/Library/Kernels/kernel

rm  –rf  /Volumes/ “Yosemite”/System/Library/Catches

kextcache –u  /Volumes/ “Yosemite”

But I got the error “Read-only file system” in every Image Volume and

“rm :  /Volumes//Image Volume: Resource busy”

When I restarted and booted through USB to “Yosemite HD” I got kernel panic.  

I also used boot flag  /haswell  –V  –X PCIRootUID=1 or  /haswell  –V  –X  ncpi=0x2000 but got the error “disk1s2 : device is write locked” when using the above terminal command.

I also have attached the error Log of the installation.

Jast a moment I have successfully update my MSI GS60 Hackintosh to 10.10.4 using this patched kernel.

I have only to remove IOBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport.kext, with which I had problem with previous version as well -

it is my MSI GS60 local problem
