How to fix "Waiting for DSMOS" or "DSMOS has arrived"


Here is an updated article


"Waiting for DSMOS" or "DSMOS has arrived" this is caused most of the time by FakeSMC.kext  

and it is a Graphics issue too 


Solution 1:-

Download the latest FakeSMC.kext and replace with the old one.You can do it by mac drive or From USB installer and Boot with Following flag "GraphicsEnaber=No" 

If that doesn't fix your problem, boot your mac drive with single-user mode(-s) and type:


/sbin/mount -uw

mkdir ~/backup

cd /System/Library/Extensions


If you have NVIDIA graphics then type:


mv -R NVD*.kext ~/backup


If you have AMD/ATI Graphics then type:


mv -R ATI*.kext ~/backup


If you have IntelGraphics then type:

mv -R AppleIntelGMA* ~/backup

mv -R AppleIntelHD* ~/backup

mv -R AppleIntelSNB* ~/backup

mv -R AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext ~/backup


Solution 2:-

Boot your mac drive using this flags " -V -S " and you go to single mode


fsck -fy

mount -uw /

mkdir /backup

cd /System/Library/Extensions

mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /backup

rm ../Caches/




Note:- If your system have AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement then save it in backup

    • I previously installed yosemite on my pc. It worked well. But I can only boot the yosemite by cliking F10 advanced boot option and have to select my Hard drive. It didn/t boot automatically. So I just mounted the EFI folder and replaced the files from the original EFI I got from a link. Probelm started. So I planned to install Yosemite again. Keyboard not worked. So I boot back windows 10 and replace everything. But when I try to install yosemite again, sill I'm facing the probelm. Keyboard not working at selecting Yosemite zone screen. Keyboard is well functioning at BIOS screen, advanced boot option screen, even in my windows 10. But it freeze at the below screen. I tried everything, changed my Boot mode to UEFI and Legacy, reset CMOS by removing CMOS battery, restarted minimum 50 times, Changed my keyboard from USB to PS2, changed my USB keyboard port to every port. Please help me to solve this.   My System Config :   Intet i3-2120 CPU@3.30GHz 1 TB Hard drive 8 GB Ram 2GB GT610 graphic card Keyboard freeze at this screen.
