Second boot USBSMC freeze | IntelHD 1st gen issues

Recommended Posts

You can't IMAGINE how pleased I was when I first found out that a Yosemite distro had been released by my favorite Hackintosh developers :)

    Unfortunately, I have a few issues...


First of all, Installation and first-boot are smooth as glass. I get through setup, create my user account, ect... But no matter WHAT I DO (safe-mode works) I can't boot a second time, I always get stuck on "USBSMC Identifier: (non unique)" [-f works, but that's no way to live :(]


Since I found a way to boot regular (Removing all USB related kexts) I decided to install the 1st gen IntelHD QECI kexts for my graphics card. I tried every single framebuffer in that folder, but they all leave my screen looking like it had a stroke.


Also, I would like to know who's decision it was to remove the "Log in with google" option. You have managed to upset the only guy here who uses just Google+ (It took me two weeks to figure out how to recover my password :angry: )



Dell inspiron 1121

Intel Core i3 330UM (Arrendale)

Intel® HD Graphics (0x0046)



P.S. I realize that 4 GB is the minimum RAM, but Yosemite CAN AND DOES work with only 3 GB.

Thank you nobody for help. (jk XD)


I fixed this issue by switching to Niresh's Mavericks. After decompiling a few USB kexts, I realized that there was a shmorgishborg of incompatibilities with the USB hardware my laptop has. After I switched to Mavericks, I made sure not to update, because all the Mavericks updates carry the incompatible USB kexts. After I fixed the USB problem, my IntelHD problem went away after I Downloaded the QE/CI drivers for Mavericks 10.9.


I still would like to know If we could have the "Log in with Google" option restored to the login screen... please?

    • Hi, Succesfully installed High Sierra. First time login with succes. After a restart the same login credentials were not accepted, so login failed. Login credentials were not changed! How to proceed? Thnx! H.    
    • Ok i tried right now. It started the installer. I did tools>disks and i tried to format one of my hdds in macos format and it gave me error. Then the hdd vanished. I went on win10 to format the hdd and have it back. When i went back to the bootable usb it gave me error. Here's everything   Edit: ok i tried to boot first the other partition of the usb (the not EFI one) and it got stuck like it did before. Now i booted the efi one and it's booting fine like before. I'm gonna check if i can initiate the hdd. Allright it booted and started some kind of configuration. I waited for it to end and I did a reboot. The problem is that the resolution is too low and i can't see properly Clover's window. What can I do?
    • @Niresh    it says  uhci controller  ehci controller setting legacy usb off on controller legacy USB off done   my motherboard is gigabyte EP43-UD3L can you help to set up bios as it is different from the pics posted    i am using the chameleon bootloader enoch r2839 could this be a problem?
    • I changed the config.plist but still I don't reach the installation menu. It freezes at Apple screen at 60% of progress. In chameleon way (the cmd like) it still says "host-level exception" trying to change values but don't go furthermore. What I can do?
