Excellent post and a great write up (best one I’ve found so far) wish I had saw this before installing Yosemite on Clover – Is there currently a way to upgrade to OS X El Capitan directly from OS X Yosemite? Thanks

Yes , make USB from First Method and install directly will upgrade nothing will lost ..but not sure about second method Good Luck
Thanks insanelydeepak, just a quick question which folder does the FakeSMC.kext need to go in? I’ve saw some where a 10.11 folder is created and others where it is put in the Other folder.
@insanelydeepak I’ve followed your guide as per method 1, on initial boot I used the following boot flags (kext-dev-mode=1 -v rootless=0) I was unable to get in to the installer, it went to a grey screen with spinning beach ball logo and then the apple logo appeared with a loading bar and got about 3/4 of the way and did nothing after? I put FakeSMC.kext and NullCpuPowerManagement.Kext in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other and removed VBoxHfs-64.efi and added HFSPlus.efi in /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/. Am I missing anything, I’m still able to boot in to Yosemite safely at the moment as the OS X 10.11 did not fully boot.
See picture below:
Thanks for all of your help
it requires to be in 10.11 folder
Boot with -v and then post pic where you getting stuck
Do I still need to use kext-dev-mode=1 for loading unsigned kexts to boot or should -v work on it’s own?
kext-dev-mode=1 and rootless=0 is required to load unsigned kexts
I installed the system using the first method and everything is working fine except one thing: I can’t install .pkg applications, at the end it says: Installation Failed.
What’s the problem?
which application …Clover Bootloader ???
No MBR Patch now , will add asap will available
Yes, but not just that but any .pkg I try to install
why so ??? could you provide me log ??? try this pkg http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
I tried it but i got the same error. To successfully install clover i had to install another os x system in another partition and change the location
still you cant install clover to usb ????
better way use 2 USB make a USB for Clover using BootDiskUtility on windows
No, I think you misunderstood.. The problem is not with the USB drive but in the post-installation. I successfully installed el capitan but I can’t install any pkg in the system. For clover, I found a solution with another partition but the problem is still there for other apps
Does clover + 10.11 solve any of the iMessage HDMI audio problems or create new ones? I have finally gotten my 4K working with audio with the Multicast method and are wondering if life is simpler with clover and 10.11
hope so , my iMessage and HDMI only working with Clover at any OSX Version
provide me installation log so i can look into matter , good luck
Now its Available MBR Patch for El Capitan
Could you please post the latest revision of the Chameleon Bootloader as a .pkg? I got Clover to work, but get a kernel panic and immediate restart after loading the installation partition. Can´t resolve this error – but Chameleon always worked for me – since 10.6 :-). I can´t find the pkg anywhere, so it would be very kind of you to upload it somewhere!
Latest Chameleon Found Here Chamelelon Bootloader
whats error ?? report will try to solve it //
I duplicated my Yosemite via Time Machine Backup in another drive and installed El Capitan. It works, but i’m having a problem with Wireless Network Adapter(RTL8192CU).
It closes instantanealy when i open it.
Anybody had the same problem?
ps.: I also made a clean install of El Capitan and the Wireless Network Adapter didn’t worked as well.
Sorry for the bad English, it’s not my native language.
ps.: it’s an encore enuwi-2xn45
it’s sounds incompatibily issue with driver you are using for RTL8192CU , where did you get this from Vendor site , have look for updated version if any available
i checked realtek site no updates found till now but you can you do kexts and DSDT patching will make this working proper ..
Good Luck 🙂
this is rajesh, i followed ur 2nd installation guide for chameleon, i stucked at last stage, im unable to extract kernel using pacifist, can u please provide me kernel file so that i can install it on my hp g6.
where exactly i have to copy the kernel extracted
In root directory of usb for e.g where base system.dmg ,system , library etc folders are exist ..
Sorry for late reply i was out of town , now available to help plz let me know if you need anything ,
do i add including the kernels folder or only the kernel file
Just use kernel if still bootloader will show can’t find kernel than add folder or you can also use bootloader to tell bootloader where kernel is exist
Hello Sir Deepak, I am trying to install Yosemite 10.10.5 on my AMD PC, so I used a custom kext and I also applied the MBR patch. I successfully reached to the installation screen but the installation was unsuccessful and I was unable to install yosemite. Kindly give me some suggestion to resolve the issue. The Installation Log is here : https://goo.gl/AXuEFO
not sure if i need an ssdt or dsdt. I added kexts in the 10.10/ kexts folder. clover configurator is downloaded but i guess i can’t use it on this mac pro 5,1. osx 10.9.4. I’m lost
what you need ??
SSDT or DSDT place in Acpi/Patched folder 10.10 folder will contains kexts which are neccessary like FakeSMC and NullCPU rest is your choice
Please clear your issue with system specs
Hello mr rohan
Have you used custom kernel for it ???
I am having an issue with my touchpad not scrolling. I am on a Alienware 17 2014 model.
The same happens to me when the wifi dongle is not inserted or the kext is not properly loaded. Try see in System Information if the kext is there and loaded – If it is, you could try the software (not the driver) for the ZyXEL NWD2205 because frankly it’s the same kext they are “talking to”.
El-cap changes too much you need to disable SIP to get all kexts working
How would one go about disabling SIP on an installation media? My installation shenanigans (with the GM) stopped at the exact same problem that FakeSMC would not load. Any ideas? Or is it a “wait and see what the Clover guys come up with” thing?
For Clover :
Change csr value to 0x03 , 0x00 or what type of security you want
type in terminal : csrutil status
show display you status
make sure your all kexts loaded properly Type in Terminal : kextstat
will dispaly you kext is loaded or not
You, Sir, are a hero! Had the installer ready already, just got a beach ball instead of a DSMOS arrival. Perfect install first time with no flaws or scary delays, network and sound fixed (so yes, the RTL8192CU driver from ZyXEL does work on El Capitan, as you can see).
Note that this trick ONLY works with Clover 3259 and above, and a CsrActiveConfig value of 0x03 allows unsigned kext’s but keeps the other security – you might want that.
Thank you so much deepak!
SIP depends upon you what you want choose which suites you best
If you still have issue and check kext is loaded or not , make them to properly load by os kernal
I installed el capitan GM candidate in a ga-p55m-ud2 mobo and I can’t get any USB ports to work. Thus, my USB mouse and keyboard cannot work. I tried the USB port restriction with no luck.
I’m looking for a solution to this issue
What issue you are having, port issue or usb not working ??
Answer me please
When El Capitan starts up and upload the desktop both the USB keyboard and mouse are not working
I believe that the issue is related to the USB ports but I’m not 100% sure. In the Yosemite partition everything is working fine
tried the USB port restriction fix with no lu
USB port allows you woking count of ports as it available on original Mac ..
Which bootloader ??
What kexts you used ??
I’m using clover 3270 and fakesmc, 3rdpartyesata, Realtek8xxx, and genericrehabman USB 3.0 kexts
and voodoops2 kext
Ordinarily I use IMac 11,3 because it is the best approximation to my pc profile. But to fix this issue I have tried other SMBIOS such as IMac 14,1, iMac 12.1 or Macpro 6.1 in connection with the fixes that some people have published in other sites such as hackintoshzone
I created a separate partition cloning my Yosemite install and did a direct update to El Capitan GM candidate booting through Clover Legacy BIOS install using a DSDT). The problem is that when it boots the USB mouse and keyboard are not working and I believe that none of the USB ports are working. I tried various USB fixes such as dummy kexts and changing the SMBIOS that I use normally (IMac 11,3) to others (Macpro 6.1, IMac 12.x, IMac 14.1) and no success. The only fix that I haven’t tried is Rehabman since I believe it is oriented to UEFI capable mobos. The kexts that I upload in Clover kext folder are fakesmc, Ethernet kext, voodoops2, 3rdpartyesata and generic Rehabman USB 3.0 kext since I have a PCIe USB 3.0 expansion card. Could anyone help me to sort this out?
