Yosemite 10.10.1 install and upgrade to 10.10.5


Yosemite 10.10.1 install and upgrade to 10.10.5

Ok i'm really at my wits end. i had this working.  now to explain:

my specs:
I5 4650k
Gigabyte z87x-ud3h-cf (haswell) bios version f9
Nvidia (gigabyte) 970 GTX
8 gigs ram
samsung evo 850
sound Realtek® ALC898 codec
lan: Intel® GbE LAN chip (10/100/1000 Mbit)
all above worked fine (exept for sleep)

now my problems.  I had this installed on a reuglar western digital drive but it seemed to go tits up on me so new drive!  I got it installed but it seemed to lock up during use (just like my sata drive that now is dead.   i then tried another re-install with flags starting up off the Yosemite usb you guys have.   i try using flags -v nv_disable=1 (this worked before) and /haswell.   now i just see spam really fast and sometimes a flash of the first screen of the installer (red apple logo) but it reboots. 
i've also tried:

-v nv_disable=1 npci=0x2000 /haswell
-v nv_disable=1 npci=0x2000

all the same. it just reboots.  i'm definetly not using usb3 plug
i put the image to the usb using transmac.

I just can't seem to get the startup for the install rght!??

ok part 2.  once i get this installed i pretty much know what to do to get updated to 10.10.5  however is there something else i should do if i want to go to El Capitan?  or Sierra?   should i go with another image? also i don't have acess to a mac right now :( and won't for a while. (unless i can get this machine going).

i hope to get some help :)  i had this going a few years ago but drive died and put it off till recently. i really want to get this running.

Thanks for your help.

update:  ok i finally got the installer to work with the following flags

/haswell nv_disable=1 ncpi=0x2000 -v    

reboot with nv_disable=1

install nvidia drivers and cuda.

hoping to hear how i should go forward and if i should keep the default boot loader or upgrade.  (i do want to upgrade to el capital and of course to sierra but i don't see any guides using chameleon boot loader.


next doing this in a terminal BEFORE updating to 10.10.5

sudo sed -i.bak 's/1.2/1.3/g' /usr/standalone/bootcaches.plist
sudo sed -i.bak 's/lzss/lzvn/g' /usr/standalone/bootcaches.plist
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/ && sudo kextcache -u /
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

then again use nv_disable=1   and install new drivers. 

Now i still don't have 2nd monitor working. i'm resisting going to clover.  i will if i have to in order to run el capitan or sierra.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
