This is my install struggle with this rig:
[UPDATE1]: removed video card(enabled the onboard video), a IEEE CARD, and the extra memory (booting with 8GB stick) still failed! Had to boot with
"-x GraphicsEnabler=No, PCIRootUID=1,maxmem=4096" and then the install started!
[UPDATE2]: now it hangs at startup and only comes up in safe mode! IF you have the same board... can you tell me if these settings work for you (I had similar setup in Mavericks)
[UPDATE 3] so, after much fuzz I got Yosemite installed. Reconnected video card & plugged all memory's. Having issues with the mouse I had to go back to the USB.... I try booting back with GraphicsEnabler & PPCIRoot (above)... Turns out I was getting the same panic. Once I boot with "maxmem=4096" the installation started fine and on my 760 card!!
Started having a "Essentials.pkg" Error at about the 13 minute mark during the install...
Came back to this AWESOME site and found this thread:
Anybody with the "Essentials.pkg" Error
After many, many, many tries and combinations... booted with -x -no-zp and now it's all up and running...
Just working on no sound now... UGHHHH
Changed my multlibeast settings a bit to use the intel network card...
Had several issue in the past 2 days... keyboard and mouse not working after the install & aGeForceSensors (pci1): started, then followed by "still waiting for root device".
both of them were due to extra kext loaded... had to manually uninstall them. found the best solution is
boot with -x , use the setting below and everything works.. INCLUDING the sound card (mine is connected to the optical port)... Kext Dev Mode was installed for the sound card issue ... I read on a thread here!!
This is has been the most issue prone install I've had on this board... but I have to say that Yomesite is very resilient and boots up regardless... (doesn't trap as often during the install and post install process)
PS: FaceTime and iMessage are still not working but that's expected...
tried to install CLOVER. To solve the FaceTime / iMessage... => EPIC ANNOYANCE
cant get it to boot the partition and there's no one willing to help (point me to the guide that got me to that point is not helping in my book!)
Can't even boot with my unibeast USB so have to install Yosemite on a new drive and face ALL these issues again !! Why you ask? IDFK... Can't install it with the same install and switches above ... Again major annoyance !!! Ughhhhh. ::::
[UPDATE 7] (hopefully the LAST one ).... What a major pain in the rear end... WOW .....
So no matter what I did, the Graphics card is not a go with Yosemite install !
Unplugged it and booted with -x -no-zp installation worked ok (between freezes and delays installing)
used Multibeast 7.01 and got it booting up .. sound, networking and graphics card with multiple monitors are a go!!
I know this is a lot of trial and error but hopefully someone will read it and appreciate the info!!!
This is the current settings I have ... due to some issue on the GPUSensor, I removed the plugins and changed the System Definitions!
