D630 El Capitan Installation work, but first boot stuck with error messages

Hi All,

 

I have a problem after El Capitan installation process, means, after copying the Extra folder (from USB) to the root directory of my HD and a reboot, I get the failure message:

**** [IOBluetoothFamily][SearchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport!
ConsiderRebuildOfPrelinkedKernel prebuild rebuild has expired

I followed Herve's D630 Installation Guide (with D630 Boot Pack & Vanilla Kernel) and also ammend all recommended BIOS Settings to my D630 with NVIDIA GPU. Previously I had Yosemite onto the D630 working like charm, so I got some minor experiences with hackintosh. So I started to think about El Capitan. I got the USB Installer up an running after some smaller problems (D630 Boot Pack not extracted in the right folder). I finally run through the El Capitan Installation process. But as you see above, I have problems to proceed installation process.

 

What I also did to maybe fix the issue was, but it didn't worked:

  • rm -f /Volumes/"NameofPartition"/System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel
  • touch /Volumes/"NameOfPartition"/System/Library/Extensions
  • kextcache -u /Volumes/"NameOfPartition"
  • exit

Can somebody please tell me, why I have these problems?

 

Thanks,

Bacopilot

I guess you did not follow the guide to the letter, did you? You're either missing the correct permissions for the /L/E folder or not booting with the right boot options.

 

Provided you've got the full pack in /Extra with DSDT +  SMBIOS/boot/kernel plists + Extensions folder with all necessary kexts, you should be able to boot with the following flags and options: KernelBooter_kexts=Yes CsrActiveconfig=3 -f -v

 

Once you've booted to EC, you can copy the kexts from /E/E to /L/E, repair permissions, rebuild cache and boot without KernelBooter_kexts option.

Hi Herve,

 

thanks, your suggestion (to use this flags and options) make it work! Perfect!

 

Two questions:

  1. Why this flag & Option wasn't in the guide? (just asking...)
  2. Can I do an update from 10.11.2 to 10.11.3 without any problems?

 

Many thanks for your help!

 

Cheers,

Bacopilot

These options are already contained in the files provided in the pack (CsrActiveConfig is in the boot plist and KernelBooter_kexts is in kernel plist) so I guess you did not follow some of the steps of the guide… The guide makes a very specific mention to these parameters and their use.

 

You can do all the OS updates you want with your eyes closed. As long as you've placed all add-ons in /L/E, your D630 will keep on working.

Hi Herve,

 

I checked again my USB Installer and both files are there with the right flags and options. But for some reasons, it didn't worked. I also just checked the Boot Pack again, to make sure, that maybe I missed/lost/delete those files, but I haven't. Strange!

 

Thanks for your help again.

 

Cheers,

Bacopilot
