Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 (DMG) doesn't boot on UEFI/Legacy Boot systems

Question

Hello there.

 

I've downloaded Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 DMG file, and created a 'bootable' USB stick with TransMac, but simply it doesn't boot. And the problem with BootdiskUtility is that needs to delete all files, and you can't select a specific partition without deleting the whole disk.

 

If someone knows how to boot it on UEFI (or at least CSM/Legacy Boot) without using a Mac, let me know.

 

Thanks.

For me, it did not booted as well. Chameleon, the new version for Yosemite, seems to have some issues with certain old motherboards. I have burned a Clover iso on a cd-rw, and used it to boot the usb installer. After installing without a bootloader, I have booted the installed OS using the same cd with Clover, then installed Clover on the partition on which I had installed Yosemite. I have BIOS on the board, not UEFI, but I have partitioned the hard drive with GPT, giving a better environment to Clover to boot and to be installed, although it seems to work at this step with MBR as well. After booting the os, ejected the cd and rebooted, the Clover on the hard drive took the role of the one on the CD. The only downside is that, at every boot, I need to manually add the boot flag (boot argument) npci=0x2000 .

I created the USB with Boot Disk Utility, I had just to edit settings and enable multipartition (size setted to 64MB); in this way I had The first partition with Clover and the second ready for OS X. Then I used the "Extract HFS+ from DMG" option (I don't remember properly the option name) and went taking a coffee (it takes a lot of time).

After that I right-clicked on the USB empty partition and choose to restore the partition from an archive (the one got from the DMG); worked like a charme, with UEFI.
If you need a video, I can do one.

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
