Successfuly installing Yosemite 10.10.5 on Core 2 Duo and P35 chipset

Recommended Posts

Hi there, today I was managed to install Yosemite 10.10.5 on an old PC which I bought extremely cheap from a friend, these are :
- Core 2 Duo E8400 @3GHz
- Gigabyte GA P35-DS3R v1.0
- Samsung 4x1GB DDR2 PC6400 SDRAM
- NVIDIA Geforce 9800GT 512MB ( unknown Chinese model ) 
- 500GB WD Green SATA
- An ultra high end 10 years old 15" Samsung LCD with 1024x768 res at 75Hz... fully pure of joy :|
things for installation :

- I'm using transmac from my windows 10 to create Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 usb installer
- BIOS setup was : AHCI enabled, USB as first boot device, virtualization off, HPET on @64bit, ACPI on
- bootflags with -v at first installation
after setup complete
- Multibeast 7.41 for first installation
- I use this custom DSDT = 1166-dsdt-gigabyte-ga-p35-ds3r-f13-rev1.aml
- select Audio 1
- kext dev mode and PCIRoot checked -> reboot

- upon restart write GraphicsEnable=Yes and PCIRootUID=1 but i think it wasn't mandatory
- download OSX Yosemite 10.10.5 combo update from apple store and slam it
- on reboot write flags -f -x first, it will be one helluva slower boot
- use Multibeast 7.50 afterwards, same options as before with 7.41 -> reboot
- don't forget these flags: GraphicsEnable=Yes and PCIRootUID=1
- download and install Nvidia WebDriver 346.02.03f01 and CUDA driver 6.5.51 reboot
- choose NVIDIA as the default graphics, reboot
- setting the Audio MIDI setup and sound over system preferences, mine came out a little bit low on volume, so i installed Boom to boost it up.
as for now everything is working just fine as it should, no apps and hardware are having trouble at all.

Hey, do you think this will work for Sierra on a Core 2 Duo E7500 and Intel DG35EC Motherboard with nVidia 9400 GT. My mother is obviously differnt and the DSDT for your motherboard are available.

I have tried using Clover and... The Restore method.

The Flash USB Maker .. etc. etc. But nothing seem to work. I am doing this on a VMWare Sierra. On Windows. Could that be the problem?

Oh. I know my hardware is compatible. I am basically running the same hardware family as the OP.  Core 2 family processors and 

P35/G35 chipset. Mine is G35 his is P35. Not too different from each other.

Niresh. I just have a couple of questions. :-

1) Will this work with a Vanilla Sierra DMG from apple that contains the .app file and all?

2) IF NOT. Will the Hackintosh Zone Sierra DMG download out here work for this method? I think that one is modified for USB right?

3) This is one is stupidest. How do I set these bootflags? -v -f etc that the OP has suggested?

Like theses - "bootflags with -v at first installation". I know it's usually done during boot time. But my USB doesn't boot. I guess that's happening because I am using Vanilla Sierra.

4) Aside from the above method. What are some other methods I can use for creating a USB using a VMWare.

Mind I already tired Pandora's Box, Clover, Enoch Chameleon....none of them make the USB boot.

Ok. Update. I tried using Yosemite-zone.dmg using Transmac and still no BOOT. I don't know how to set -v on a Yosemite Zone USB created by Transmac.

I think this all might be concerning my BIOS setting or version or something.




I don't have an option to set HPET mode.
