  1. Sorry for the late answer, but work keeps me pretty busy atm. It is a bit strange; with Yosemite final, I can not boot up if in docking station or external VGA connected (not active)... I could do it with the Yosemite Beta, so I guess something in the final release has changed. As I'm no pro, I have no idea what this could be. Clover does allow me to switch to the external VGA in boot screen by Fn+F8, but as it won't boot up I can't tell you if the screen would be working after boot. For me, I could live without sleep but need the ability of connecting a second screen at runtime, which works fine with Mavericks and Jake Lo's Guide without Optimus. So I had the idea to replace DSDT + SSDT from pokenguyens guide with the ones from Jake Lo's guide - but I cannot get the combination of Clover and Jakes DSDT running.
  2. Update: I upgraded to Yosemite final release yesterday via Appstore. Some hints: - don't have the laptop in docking station, it didn't work from there (crash caused by BT) - had to boot from external USB and select the partition created by the installer, but no problems Stuff that did work before still works - and still no external display yet.
  3. Hello everybody, first, I want to thank Jake Lo and pokenguyen for their nice guides. I'm not all new to building hackintoshs, but my last trys are 2-3 years old, and so much has changed. In the last two weeks I could successfully install Mavericks on my E6530 with the guide Jake Lo posted, and I finished my Clover-based installation of Yosemite PB6 (yeah, I know, they released the final) yesterday. So far, I like Clover, and a lot of stuff is working: - Ethernet - WiFi (replaced Intel with some compatible) - Sleep (yay!) - Touchpad (no gestures, but not that important) - Appstore, iCloud, iMessage, Facetime What doesn't work (but I want it to!) is external display port(s). The problem obviously has something to do with the Optimus topic, but let me tell what I found out yet. Following pokenguyen's guide, the Mackintosh Vietnam Tool installs Clover to the new Macintosh HD. Sounds good, but the new version did break my ability to boot, so I replaced the new Version with the older one (included in the original pack in guide). After this, I was able to boot. After some testing, I can tell (Optimus enabled): with Clover 2703, only the Intel HD GPU shows up in Option - Graphics and in System booted up, with Clover 2953 its the NVS and the Intel in Option - Graphics in bootscreen. Problem: I cannot boot with 2953, getting a crash immediately. It doesn't matter if Optimus is enabled or disabled. So I guess I am missing something really stupid... Can it be I have to change something in my config.plist? Remember, the Intel GPU works fine with 2703. I'm out of ideas at the moment, even tried to use Jake Lo's DSDT/SSDTs (bad idea)! Any help is really appreciated! Cheers Matse PS. Nearly forgot System Specs... - E6530, BIOS A13 - I7-3740QM - 16GB RAM - Intel HD plus NVS5200m - Display 15.6" 1920x1080 - WiFi by AR5BHB92
