Worked for me after I changed the SMBIOS to iMac 14.2
Sorry to say this, but I did not take a backup before installation and its failing to boot. (I am on Hp probook 4430, Yosemite clover ).
I am ready to erase my hard disk and do a fresh install. But I have another partition in my hard disk (other than the one i have installed OSX) and I need to get the data on that partition. So is there any way to recover data in that partition ?
Followed step by step. Clover was installing and I walked away since it had a 28 min installation. Walked back after a while and saw a OS X installation failed message. Rebooted and now my boot drive doesnt show up at all in Clover boot. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Installation USB doesnt want to work anymore now. Loads half way then restarts computer.
Are you sure ???? Is it that simple ??
If you're referring to Post #1, yes. If not, what are you asking?
If your Yosemite install is not based on Clover (i.e. it's based on Chimera etc.), then no, this thread is not for you.
You have a working install of Yosemite that uses Clover as the bootloader? OK, so I misunderstood. Then yes, post #1 is your pathway.
I have followed the guide. As far as I am aware, I've done everything correctly. Yes Yosemite works perfectly.
When I launch the installer from clover for Mac OS as instructed, I get this.
Thanks for any help.
I solved my issue, somehow the newest clover didn't install correctly. I installed it again and the install worked.
I look at it this way. If you have Yosemite working and you have issues updating to El Capitan, you didn't follow the guide correctly, as I didn't.
How did you fix this? I cant find the solution! HELP!
I had the same problem. All you have to do is put the LATEST version of FakeSMC into you 10.11 folder and then, once the install is done, it WILL boot. But beware, there is another step. This step is that you have to replace OsxAptioFixDrv with OsxAptioFix2Drv if you want it to boot a second time.
I hope it helps.
