Selecting kernel after install?

Question

Hi, first I wanna say a great thanks for all the work gone into this - its the only version of Yosemite that even boots on my machine! Secondly to my question - I am running this on a Haswell laptop (i7 4710) and as such use the /haswell boot option to load up the installer. This all goes perfectly and the system is installed and loads up the Chameleon bootloader after a restart. This is as far as it gets however. Upon selecting my new install, I simply get the instant reboot as if the Haswell kernel is not being used. I went through all the options in the customization for the install and couldn't see an option to enable the Haswell kernel in the install. I assumed in this case that it might install itself but it doesn't seem like this has happened. If I try to boot using the /haswell boot flag it simply says it cannot find the kernel. Is there something I am missing here? An option I need to select in the installer to get the right kernel installed? It seems as if I'm so close I just need to get the right kernel as literally the only boot flag I used to boot the system was /haswell.

@

if possible send me the Installer log and i have seen a lot of people experiencing the same issue

you can fix it manually 

boot into USB with /haswell

now open Terminal

i assume that the name of your volume where Mac installed as"Mac OS"

cp -f /Volumes/"Image Volume"/haswell   /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
rm -rf  /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Caches
kextcache -u  /Volumes/"Mac OS"

Thanks for the reply. I can confirm this works to boot the system. Whereabouts are the logs stored as I would be happy to upload them?

 

Now I just need to work out a way of getting the graphics (Intel HD 4600 mobile) to work. I don't suppose anyone has had much luck in getting this to work? I know the support was removed by Apple in Yosemite and unfortunately all the information I'm finding on the web either doesn't work - have tried patching the Intel kexts to no avail and the other method I've found unfortunately involves clover which I have had no luck in getting my system to boot with.

@Matt Armes

hey mister did you got the solution for your HD4600????? because right now I just try the solution below and I think it will be good. for the haswell also I put busrastio=20 and cpus=1 and work without the haswell but I will try.

 

 

Hey After do some test I got at start Can't find /System/Library/Kernels/haswell 

 

what I did it was put all the adress /System/Library/Kernels/kernel/haswell

    • Hi, everyone, thanks for your time.
      I'm trying to fresh install macOS 10.13.1 (Build 17B48). I'm trying to do this by free myself from multibeast and by put kexts in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.3 and set a good config.plist.

      I have this famous issue in verbose mode and can't boot.
      IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lin 0, llk 1,
      IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
        It's looks like your own issue.

      Every time, i can boot the first time. I start my post-install by install the web drivers automatically served by Nvidia. And never be able to boot again…
      I didn't found any plist option that permit to boot over this issue…
      help… !
