Asus N550JV-CM149H Second HDD Yosemite Installation

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I'm Italian and I'm new to this forum, so I'm sorry for my English. I recently replaced the optical drive of my Asus N550JV-CM149H Notebook with a HDD caddy to put a second HDD and I wanted to try installing OSX Yosemite in that HDD in dual boot with Windows 8.1 64-bit installed in the primary HDD (upgraded from Windows 8 64-bit through the Windows Store with all Asus factory defaults). So I have a few questions for you:

 

1) What are the differences between installing OSX Yosemite trough Chameleon or Clover? Is Clover better for UEFI Motherboards?

 

2) I tried to follow some Clover OSX Installation guides (this

 

 

and this https://applelife.ru/threads/asus-n550jv-n750jv-na-haswell.41594/) for my Notebook in order to set the correct BIOS settings and OSX kexts. Are the kexts for OSX Mavericks compatible with OSX Yosemite? Are the UEFI settings in the attached images correct?

 

3) If I install OS X Yosemite on the second HDD (which by the way is installed in the SATA port 0 as the primary HDD is installed in SATA port 1 as you can see in the attached image), I might have problems of HDD priority or problems with the Windows Boot Manager for launching Windows?

 

There are little specs of my Notebook:

 

NOTEBOOK: Asus N550JV-CM149H

MOTHERBOARD CHIPSET: Intel Lynx Point HM86, Intel Haswell

BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. Ami Bios N550JV.208 (DMI, ACPI, UEFI)

Is there something that may not work?

 

Thanks in advance for the help!  :-D
