Hi there,
 
Thankss for your help getting my 10.9.5 to work on my D630 nvidia. I ejected the hdd and inserted another on lying around to have a fresh start and install Yosemite :)
 
Used the thread here on the forum (the post by hervé in the research - and electrozen's remark), I made the stick, booted it, installed Yosemite.
 
I had 2 runs of the install:
- one did all the installing, but had 'one more second waiting' at the end of the installer. The USB-stick-light kept on blinking (I/O activity on the usb-drive). I powerd the system off and tried rebooting. Clover did not find the installed Yosemite on HDD.
- Because that was not a success, I redid install (formatted the disk again), and ran the installed (but had to leave to go working). When I came back home the system was powered off, and when I tried to reboot, Clover did not find the installed Yosemite on HDD.
 
So cant boot my fresh Yosemite.
 
-HDD is formatted GUID
-Clover is installed with the "Install boot0af in MBR" and "CloverEFI 64-bits SATA" options
 
Where did I go wrong ?

You could ignore Clover (it's kind of difficult unless you're an experienced Hackintosher) and use Chameleon instead. Install a recent version such as v2.2 r2377 or r2401. You'll have to manually do all those things that tools like myHack did for us in the background:

  1. create Extra folder and copy DSDT + boot plist + SMBios plist in it
  2. copy all add-on kexts previously placed in /E/E directly to /S/L/E
  3. manually repair permissions and rebuild cache with the usual Terminal commands:

sudo chmod ...

sudo chown ...

sudo touch ...

sudo kextcache ...

 

You have those in details in my aforementioned thread.

 

Good luck.

If someone wants to know:

 

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions

sudo chown -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

sudo kextcache -Boot -U /

yeah I tried again with chameleon meanwhile, but I cannot understand why it doesn't find the fresh install on the hdd when booting?

 

Cameleon will have the same problem not?

 

EDIT: Oh - now I rebooted the USB and the install is continuing - maybe there was a problem .. I'll see again in 15min :)

ok, so the installer needs to reboot, and you have to use clover to resume the install... my mistake :)

I was thinking the installed made the hdd bootable (via clover) but I as mistaken.

 

Thi spost is successfully typed in OS X Yosemite :)

 

 

 

Sound is working, wired network is working

Will look for power mgmnt, battery and sleep later on.

 

Thanks (again) guys! Great work here!
