OS X 10.10 Yosemite - Dell E6230

Hello,

 

I need some help to make my Yosemite work. I have a partition with Mavericks working, one partition with local Time Machine and I created another partition for Yosemite.

 

| => diskutil list

/dev/disk0

   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER

   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *320.1 GB   disk0

   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1

   2:                  Apple_HFS MacOsX                  100.0 GB   disk0s2

   3:                  Apple_HFS Time Machine            150.0 GB   disk0s3

   4:                  Apple_HFS OS X Yosemite           68.9 GB    disk0s4

   5:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s5

 

I created boot USB installer. After that I downloaded package for my model from "Extended Driver Package > Compatibility & Bootpacks" http://www.osxlatitude.com/packs/Dell/IvyBridge/Dell_Latitude_E6230_Intel_HD4000/Dell_Latitude_E6230_Intel_HD4000-yos.zip and I replaced /Extra folder on my USB stick. I was able to install Yosemite but I can't boot it.

 

I upgraded my Chameleon to v2400.

 

This is content of folder /Extra in Yosemite partition (I copied my /Extra folder from Mavericks partition and added 2 lines for Kernel):

| => ls -l "/Volumes/OS X Yosemite/Extra"

total 80

When I try to boot it with -v, it loads kexts after loading a few, screen goes black.

 

I appretiate every tip.

Thank you.

i do not see your capri frame buffer values in your chameleon config. if you have hd4000 you need to add that. use chameleon wizard or enter them manually by reading the chameleon help file. you need a value between 1 and 11 laptops usually will work with 3.

Capri FB is probably already patched in the DSDT, so no need to add it in Chameleon. Since you're dual booting, you need to remove FileNVRAM.dylib from your Mavericks partition. Yosemite won't boot with this file.

You will need to add flag kext-dev-mode=1 too.

you don't see Intel Capri FB 4 lines above your resolution entry?

 

You got me :-) I was searching for Capri on the beginning.

I did that and it doesn't boot anyway but I get further. Where do I find output from verbose booting? I was googling and it should be saved in kernel.log but this file doesn't exist, only system.log on my Mavericks partition and there is nothing regarding booting Yosemite.

Ok, so I follow the instructions on insanelymac.com forum and I was able to install and run Yosemite.

I copied Jake`s boot pack and a lot of things work.

 

But the sound doesn`t work, the touchpad doesn`t work, can`t sign in to iCloud, App Store, etc.

 

Has anyone been successful?
