unable to install Yosemite 10.10.1 dmg with an USB
2 2


I am unable to install Yosemite 10.10.1 Yosemite-zone.dmg restored with USB in my Acer E5-571 33Ys laptop. The hardware specs of my laptop are as under.

CPU:                              Intel Core i3-4030U Cpu @ 1.90 GHz.

Chipset:                        Intel Haswell ULT, Socket 1168 BGA

Graphics:                      Intel HD 4400 (Microsoft Basic Display Adapter)

Ethernet:                      Gigabit Ethernet

Wireless LAN:                IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Wlan:                             i) BT Atheros WB335

                                      ii) BT4.0 BCM43142

                                      iii) BT 4.0Atheros WB222

                                      iv) Qualcom Atheros AR9287 Wireless

                                          Network Adapter (PCI- Express

Audio Card:                    Realtek ALC283


When I am making 4 or 5 partitions with Master Boot Record with different formats i.e. ExFat, MS Dos, Mac OS Journaled, I find the last partition is not mounting. The message is “Could not mount disk2s5 /disk2s6 with name Texts after erase”. As a result, essential.pkg could not be extracted and the installation fails in the 14th minutes remaining  time period (i.e. before middle). If by luck the installation completes, I cannot see any chameleon bootloader icon so as to boot from the hard drive and not pen drive.

Can you find a way out to make the installation successful?  Also let me know how to install wify software for my above wify card made for Windows PC.

I've got an haswell pc too...

I spent a lot of time trying to understand why Hackintosh USB didn't work.

There's no reason...

All what I did is burn a DVD-DL of the hackintosh .iso file and boot with /haswell

Now I've got my hackintosh working smoothly!

Let me know,

Good luck!
