Yes. But your Win81 is likely installed legacy, and you will need to re-install the Windows bootloader to the MBR (use BOOTREC.EXE). You can google instructions for using BOOTREC.

You should do it one step at a time. First transition to Clover, then fix the Windows booting, then update to Yosemite. You should also make a backup in case you make a mistake.

Updated the guide, thanks!

That's interesting, I just installed Yosemite (the installer usb stick was made with createinstallmedia) and the installation did indeed have 2 stages (first one for veryfing the image, second for actual installing).

Not really that interesting. Same as it always has been... Difference between 2a and 2b methods of creating USB installer.

I have created the usb installer with method 2b. After step 5 I see a black screen with a white apple logo. Nothing happens there, the screen just stays this way and I don't get into the installer, even when leaving it running for half an hour. Tried it 3 times. What could be the issue?

I know. I just don't think the old 7-9 steps from the guide should've been removed.

Reading current post #1, seems like all the steps are there (from what I remember)...

Boot in verbose mode. I have the same problem with you sometimes.

Post your CLOVER partition.

EDIT: Please download Clover.zip again.
