  1. Prepared USB but won't boot

    Thank you so much for your response. Going through the procedure now. EDIT: Tried going through the proper steps, but once I get to restore USB with Image it says failed to write to disk. I've tried two different USB sticks with the same results. Not sure what's going on. Maybe I'll try another computer to see if that fixes the issue. EDIT 2: Switching PC's seems to have done the trick as far as getting it onto a USB. About to find out if I can get it to install now EDIT 3: Slow progress lol. Got it to write to the USB and it does try to boot, but hangs about a 1/4 through the loading bar under the apple logo now. I'm probably just being impatient though.
  2. Hello, I'm trying to install Yosemite on my laptop. I had Mavericks and 8.1 dual booting, but my HDD quit on me so I figured I'd update to Yosemite. After preparing my USB drive it doesn't boot anything at all. I used Win32 Disk Imager as I had previously to make my Mavericks USB, but it doesn't seem to like that for the Yosemite one. Could I be missing something really easy? I downloaded the .dmg file as directed as well. Hopefully that's enough information to figure out what's going on. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
  3. Intel i5 M430 Graphics

    Hello everyone and thank you for your collective work into making this a possibility! My current system is a Dell Studio 1769 and like the topic says it has an i5 M430 processor. Now through my research I've found that OS X doesn't natively support first generation Intel graphics and that I need to go to the System/Library/Extensions folder and delete AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext When I try to go to the location however I don't have an Extensions folder. Is there something I'm doing wrong like not properly showing all hidden folders or is it just built that way? Thank you all in advance for any information you can give me! SOLVED: I added the -v boot flag and everything is working great except for the obvious issues which the only one I seem to be affected by is the wifi.
