Install OS X on E7240

Recommended Posts

Please read update below:

 

Thanks for this E7440 guide, need some help here. My model is E7240 though with i5-4210u, 16gb RAM, Intel HD4400 graphics, Full HD touch screen, 256gb Samsung SSD, DW1550 Target is OS X 10.10.4
 
I manage to installed OSX up to before the step to run kextwizard, manage to install clover as well, but once i rebooted, i type the password it stuck.
 
I think I also installed the Azul framebuffer from the pack in got from the Chameleon guide, not sure what when wrong, I originally follow the Chameleon guide, let put this aside
 
So a few questions, I am going to try again, to reinstall, for simpler mode, I am going to have wipe again the disk and reinstall, do I need to partition the disk like 0.3gb for EFI and rest is OSX journaled file system?
 
Let me know what could I missed.
 
What I notice after the post installation, before install CLOVER to EFI:
1. touch screen works
2. mouse pretty slow
3. i can use usb wireless
4. there is no Ethernet
5. I don't think there is an recovery hd created as well
 
Appreciate any input on this. Thanks.

Manage to reinstall, still unable to install clover on the hard disk.

 

Replace Dell DW1550, works out of the box.

 

Do I need to create a separate EFI partition before install OS X 10.10.4?

 

Thanks.

No, when you install Clover to the HDD, make sure to customize and select Install for UEFI booting Only

I will try again, not sure what I did, I can't seem to login after booting

 

Edit:

Seems I didn't notice I am missing /Extra/SSDT.aml

 

I am not sure how to solve this

the Extra folder is only used in chameleon boot loader clover uses another path. EFI/clover/acpi/patched and EFI/clover/kexts/os version your looking to boot for kexts

i might finally crack this

 

to update:

 

/Extra/SSDT.aml was due to I didn't run SSDT generator

 

I manage to mount the hidden EFI partition 

 

http://www.defaults-write.com/enable-the-debug-menu-in-disk-utility/ 

 

defaults write com.apple.DiskUtility DUDebugMenuEnabled -bool true

 

Using Clover r3253 , I did install in on the Macintosh HD (OSX installation), then copy the clover to EFI.

 

But now, my clover can't see the OSX installation, properly some selection I didn't select during the installation

Make sure you have HFSPlus-64.efi in driver64UEFI folder

did this, not sure why it not working

 

 

Zip up and post your /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover folder, please.

will do when i get back

 

interesting, my EFI is /EFI after i mount it, should I zip those instead?

I'm not sure what you mean by "EFI is /EFI." Your EFI partition is mounting in the root directory? What method are you using to mount the EFI partition?
