    Boot theme changed after Yosemite

    I upgraded my 10.9 to 10.10 following the install guide and now when I boot I no longer get my installed chimera theme.

    Can't find mach_kernal no matter what I do!

    Setting Chameleon Boot Screen Resolution

    For whatever reason, changing these values does not affect the boot screen resolution. It still shows up in a different aspect ratio and pixelated. That's why I was assuming I needed to change the graphics mode in org.chameleon.Boot.plist but that causes the boot loop issue I mentioned earlier.

    Step by Step Fix for iMessage - Requires Clover (Alternate Bootloader)

    Yes, I removed the drive then rebooted. When iMessage launched after reboot it came up with the typical sign-in error.

    one sleep/wake solution for z77 ep5th

    I disabled PLL but my system still can't sleep without using the PleaseSleep app. I've noticed everyone in this thread is using a graphics card - does this not work with onboard HD 4000?

    No USB 3.0 after wake from sleep on ga-z77x-up5 TH

    To fix the "kernel[0]: FireWire GUID 0000000000000000 is invalid!" error, disable firewire (1394) on your motherboard in BIOS.

    "FireWire GUID 0000000000000000 is invalid!" console error?

    It should definitely be in there somewhere since it's a feature of the motherboard. I can't imagine why they would remove the ability to disable it, but who knows?

    "FireWire GUID 0000000000000000 is invalid!" console error?

    What BIOS version are you running? Mine is F3. The Firewire controller is just listed as 1394 i believe. I had to poke around a bit to find it. After switching it off the messages stopped.
