Recommended Posts

Mount InstallESD.dmg which is in Contents/SharedSupport of Install OS X Yosemite.app

Mount BaseSystem.dmg which is (hidden) in OS X Install ESD

open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg

Using Disk Utility restore OS X Base System to a pen drive (or HD partition) in the format Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

Remove the link Packages in the folder System/Installation of the pen drive

rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System\ 1/System/Installation/Packages

Copy the folder Packages from OS X Install ESD to System/Installation in the pen drive

cp -R /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System\ 1/System/Installation

Copy the files BaseSystem.dmg and Basesystem.chunklist from OS X Install ESD to the root of the pen drive

cp /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.* /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System\ 1

Install Clover (r2694 or later) in the pen drive


Add kext-dev-mode=1 in Clover boot-args

Basic sample config.plist

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
	<string>-v kext-dev-mode=1</string>
	<string>theme name</string>

Copy essential kexts (FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement, etc) to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10

Boot the pen drive and proceed with install

Hi team,

I've followed this tutorial but stopped at "Missing Bluetooth Transport", I've already tried all commands as suggestion. But with the .raw file you'd posted for Mavericks 10.9.5, I didn't need to change anything, just press Enter and installed smoothly. I've used HDMI and had full QE/CI for my screen. My hardware components:

1/ CPU: intel core i7-4790K

2/ Mainboard: GA-H87M-D3H

3/ GPU: intel hd 4600

4/ RAM: 8GB 1600Mhz


Please help to create the same installation for Yosemite? Thanks so much team!

Did you build the installer yourself or are you using the raw image?

Try using Chameleon (boot legacy and press 1 if you are using the raw image), it doesn't use kernel cache.

You can also try to re-create the installer (or re-write the image), some error may have occurred and you may have corrupted files.
