Yosemite 10.10.1 installation not detected in BIOS

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

First of all, thank you Niresh for your great work!

 

I am having troubles trying to setup a hackintosh on my ASUS laptop (see signature).

 

I succesfully installed Yosemite 10.10.1, fixed my intel HD 4000 graphics to work QE+CE, but I am having troubles with the boot loader. I can only boot using my installation USB drive because I cannot set the boot option to my hdd in my BIOS.

 

I am trying for 2 days and I read all kind of forums and tried all kind of things until i finally destroyed my installation trying to delete chameleon from OSX partition and install it to EFI partition.

 

I just installed Yosemite again using customized install options (Install Chameleon EFI) but no change, still cannot boot directly from HDD.

 

I read something that asus bios is not able to read the GUID partitions ? Is that the cause ?

I have a SSD where I plan to install when I will make everything work. Will this help me ?

 

Can you guys guide me to install it correctly ? Maybe I have to make a FAT32 EFI partition and install the boot loader there ?

 

I would prefer to use chameleon because I successfully found the correct settings for my video card and this was a headache too, but if it's not possible I will install Clover and then try to fix the graphics again.

 

PS. I still don't know if my laptop is UEFI capable, but I have no option in BIOS to enable UEFI, so I guess not.

 

Thanks, and any additional info you need, I will be here!

    • Hello! Yesterday I successfully installed Yosemite (Yosemite Zone distro) on my laptop (Sony Vaio FIT 15E with an i3-3217U). The only thing that doesn't work is the wifi card (BCM43142). I found in my house another wireless card, AzureWave AW-NB047H. Is this wireless card compatible with macOS?   Sorry for my bad english and thanks in advance. ~IOStream
