Yosemite Zone install diary - OS X Yosemite 10.10 - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

Hello.  First off, I love the community you have here. I have wanted to fiddle with hackintoshes for a while, but haven't had the time.

I have decided to try and get it working, but of course I have run into MANY issues. This is going to be sort of a blog / diary of my attempts and what I did to fix them.
The purpose of this, is to get help with anything I cant fix; and anything I do fix, hopefully someone else finds a fix for their issue.

My hardware:

Motherboard: Asus H81M-E
CPU: 4690K
GPU: None - HD4600 integrated
Keyboard: USB
Mouse: USB
Ram: 4GB (2X2GB) Kingston HyperX
HDD: Samsung 1.5TB mechanical
USB Stick for install: Lexar Jumpdrive 32GB USB2
 

For all of these attempts, I will be using Yosemite Zone 10.10

Current issue/s

19:43
Currently reinstalling with the GPU and NO boot flags

17:52
OS Kernel Panicked.

17:47
The install went fine, but the bootloader is only on the USB stick for now.
Keeps hanging on IOBluetoothHCIController
FIXED: Installed an old 8400 gts and used DVI, with boot flags -x -v -GraphicsEnabled=Yes

Currently booted into OSX via safe mode.

17:08
It turns out it wasn't even booting to the disk.
Trying to install with these flags "-v -x -IGPEnabler=Yes -no-zp -cpus=1"

16:59
First boot is taking a very long time. I suspect it has frozen.  Will wait another 10 minutes.


16:56 12/12/2015

Install is failing on the last minute with a message similar to "OSX cannot be installed on this computer".
FIXED. I added in my second stick of ram and ran with NO boot flags

 

First 10 attempts

I kept getting Essentials.pkg was corrupted. After looking at a lot of different BIOS settings from many different web pages, I found the cause was to do with CPU settings.
(Check images for my current settings)

 

Bios Settings:

(Will add later)
