Hi,

yesterday I upgraded my well working Asus Laptop (Hackintosh) with more RAM and a Samsung Evo 850 SSD (more mA than old hd). I tried to install El Capitan with the same USB I used in the past and I am getting this error:

OsxAptioFixDrv: Starting overrides for System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
Using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no
Error allocating 0x121 pages at 0x000000000ff46000 alloc type 2
Error loading kernel cache (0x9)
Boot failed, sleeping for 10 seconds before exiting...​

There are people having this error but they all have nvidia graphics.

Since it worked before, either the RAM or the SSD is the problem.

ps: Windows is running fine, recognizes the RAM and the ssd

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.

The guide does not involve using a VM. Follow the guide on real hardware.

Virtual box error, used older version. Writing from working El Capitan on SSD now :D
Thank you for the guide!

What exactly helped you in the guide? I did read that, too, and all I found is that it says that I need different drivers, with a link to https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/What-is-what#efi-drivers - but that only lists the drivers. How did you actually choose another driver, and which one solved it for you?

I had tried Clover Configurator.app to switch in either of the three OsxAptio...Drv.efi variants (btw, the clover FAQ is outdated on this point), but none helped.
