Remove the GenericUSBXHCI.kext as you don't need it and should use it for 7/8/9-series motherboards. I did a test recently with a USB 3 HDD and the GenericUSBXHCI.kext actually kept the USB 3 ports from operating at full speed. It may also cause freezing on the 7/8/9-series motherboards.

I repeat, no, you don't need the driver disc that came with your motherboard as it's for Windows. Your Z97N is basically the same as my H97N. See my signature block for links to my build description and installation guides. :thumbup:

ericdano, Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat as you. I'm forced to use the boot/kernel flag "maxmem=8192" to not only install, but to run Yosemite. Bummer. So, I'm still on Mavericks 10.9.5. If you're adventurous, upgrade to the last UEFI BIOS as users of Z68 motherboards have had success using the UEFI BIOS, including, IIRC, EddyMac...
