  1. Hi Niresh. This is a request really. Is it possible to create a USB installer with Yosemite on it to allow the installation of Yosemite on older (unsupported) Mac's. My son has got a 2007 A1181 Macbook. It runs Lion but is not supportes for Yosemite but it has got a 64bit 2 Ghz Core2Duo processor and dedicated graphics. I've tried to create a USB using several guides with no success. There are people who claim to have got this working so it is possible. You have managed to create a bootloader that allows Yosemite to run on hardware that Apple have never ever supported, so this should be a breeze. I cant be the only one who wants this. Thanks in advance. Jolly
  2. I've installed Yosemite 10.10.1 successfully on my rig :- AMD FX8350 processor ASUS M5 A78L-M USB 3 Motherboard 8 Gb DDR3 Ram AMD Radion HD7770 Graphics card You'll need Niresh Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 DMG TransMac (trial version) 8Gb USB stick About 45 Mins Optional downloads (you'll need these to get the Ethernet & Audio working) All in one Audio Package All in one Ethernet package (copy these 2 zip files on to a spare USB stick for later) Create the bootable USB using TransMac (follow the Yosemite install guide) I booted from USB using the following boot flags /amd1 npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No Format your HDD partition to mac os extended (journaled) You can either customise the boot loader at this point and add the above boot flags (recommended) or just install and run the Chameleon Wizard (found in Finder - Applications) after the installation. You must still enter npci=0x2000 GraphiceEnabler=No once it reboots if you don't customize now. Once installation is complete the system reboots and you can select your location and keyboard but don't try and connect to the internet yet as the ethernet driver is not installed. Create an account and then let the Niresh configuration scripts run. Once all the scripts have configured you should run the Chameleon Wizard now if you didn't customise the boot loader earlier You can now install the Ethernet and sound packages. (just click on the zip file and then the package file) Once the 2 packages have installed - reboot You should now have ethernet / internet working To get the sound working, open system preferences - sound, and make sure you have line out selected in the "play sound effects through" tab. Thats it. You are good to go. Thanks to Niresh for all his great work. Enjoy Jolly
  3. My son has an Acer Aspire Z5600 AIO desktop PC LGA775 Socket with Intel Q8800 64bit processor Intel G45 Express chipset Integrated Intel GMA X4500HD video 4 Gb DDR3 Ram I'm trying to install Niresh's latest Yosemite 10.10.1 from USB (I know it works as I've just got my own PC with AMD FX8350 working with it) I've tried just about everything using various boot flags and it either reboots 15 seconds in or it freezes at Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,1)/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHIDMouse.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleHIDMouse] 20384 as I say I've tried just about everything -f USBBootFix=Yes upci=0x2000 & 3000 and everythime it either resets or freezes at AppleHIDMouse.kext Thanks for looking.
  4.

  5. Right, I'm up and running with my ASUS motherboard and AMD 8350 processor and an ATI 7700 Graphics card However, every time I boot I have to enter a couple of boot options At the the HDD selection screen and the red line running down I have to enter "Kernel Cache"=amd GraphicsEnabler=No Is there a way I can have these boot options automatically entered so I don't have to every time. Thanks for looking Jolly
