Since upgrading to Yosemite, I also have been encountering this problem -- not as often as you, but probably 3 or 4 times since upgrading in October. It never happened in previous versions. I am using different hardware than you -- GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard with an Intel Core i7 3770 CPU and a SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 6870 video card.

From googling, you seem to be the only other person who has encountered the problem though :(

Just judging from the error name "duplicate UUID detected", I think to solve the problem you should generate a new UUID. Open terminal and type "uuid" and use that UUID as your new UUID (inject it in Clover / Chimera / Chameleon's configuration. If that command doesn't work try this:
https://www.uuidgenerator.net and use the "Version 4" section. Then inject it in Clover / Chimera / Chameleon under UUID. That SHOULD fix your problem, but don't quote me on it.

Cheers!

I still have this very same problem. And it mostly happens when waking up from sleep or rebooting which freezes or reboots my computer.

Stack trace is quite the same.. systemstats chrash, NSInternalInconsistencyException and 'duplicate boot uuid detected'.

I tried changing the drive UUID two times and it doesn't affect it.

And I am not sure what these properties mean:
Anonymous UUID: B18FE1BD-8843-711D-7B0B-AFBDF358C33F
Sleep/Wake UUID: F64679BD-5B0B-4186-9E17-6EF3EE8C431A

Anonymuous UUID is always the same and Sleep/Wake UUID is always different. And none of them is the SystemId property/UUID that I added to org.chameleon.Boot.plist

Any thoughts?

RESOLVED:

As I said in the original post below I couldn't view Avg Energy Impact in Activity Monitor. Not a big deal, but annoying. The resolution for me was to whack everything in /private/var/db/systemstats and reboot like:

sudo launchctl stop com.apple.systemstatsd
sudo launchctl stop com.apple.systemstats.periodic
sudo launchctl stop com.apple.systemstats.analysis
mkdir /Users/Shared/oldsysstats
sudo mv /private/var/db/systemstats/* /Users/Shared/oldsysstats
sudo shutdown -r now​

After restart, the content of the systems stats directory is reconstituted, no more crash of systemstats, and Avg Energy Impact is now working.

FWIW (not much), the boot uuid referred to by systemstats does NOT match the boot volume UUID... It must be some other UUID, but I have no idea what it is.

Original Post:
I too am having this problem. I can cleanly reproduce this crash in systemstats by opening Activity Monitor and then clicking the Energy tab.

As far as I can tell, none of you stated which application is actually crashing with this exception... Is it systemstats, or something else?

I can find very little information about "boot uuid" in OSX. All references appear to refer to the boot volume uuid, but I have no idea how or why that would be related to gathering power stats through systemstats.....

Anyone have any ideas?

EDIT: I should have added, that the result of this crash is that no average energy impact is displayed in the Activity Monitor. Not really a big deal, but this is more than a superficial problem.

@bobfandango I tried your solution about a week a go, but it did nothing to improve my situation unfortunately. Happy that it works for you though.

Anyone had any luck with anything else?

Didn't work for me either. systemstats keeps crashing. I'll downgrade this one back to Mavericks and keep it around. It was working well until I upgraded.

I need to be able to use the latest Xcode so it looks like it's back to a real Mac.

I tried this and it seems to have fixed the issue as well as resolve a few more than expected. I noticed that after I tried to boot to the volume after doing the fix above that the computer did in fact freeze again which meant I had to reboot. I rebooted to my OS X install USB stick and ran Repair Disk Permissions in the Disk Utility for the drive and it now boots fine. So far so good so I guess we will see what happens a little further down the road. The one question I had though was could a duplicate UUID be caused by cloning software such as Carbon Copy Cloner when mirroring a drive? I have that running in the background and maybe it is related?

Hi,

every couple of days, my hackintosh freezes, I think usually it is after I play with video either youtube or playing a few minutes of movies via VLC or other QT (not sure it is related).

Checking the crash log reveals that it is "duplicate boot uuid detected".

Did anyone has any idea what may cause this? checked the previous posts but I see there is not resolution for this.

PFA the entire crash log and below the first portion of it.

thanks,
Guy.

Hi,

I have got the same problem.

In fact this is my build:
- Asus Z97i-PLUS
- Intel i7 6700k
- Asus GTX970
- Intel SSD 240G 535 series

The boot is installed on the SSD. No problems so far, but when i connect my extra internal hard drive (WD 3T Green) then i get the freeze with the error i get from the logs: "Duplicate boot uuid detected"

Anyone having a solution for this pleas?

Thx
