I was the same as some others and not reading Tony's original post correctly o_O so constantly getting kernel mach message. Thanks to the member who highlighted that you reboot from the USB and not the HDD, i now have a fully working Yosemite :thumbup:

Thanks to all those who put in the work, i appreciate the time you spend on it :)

Here's how I got around the "can't find; mach_kernel" error.
I followed the steps in this guide and still got the error. My problem was that there are two ways to boot from your usb:

1. let chimera load, press any key to bring up the device list, and choose usb.
This resulted in the error

2. press F12 before Chimera loads to bring up the boot menu and choose usb or in my case PMAP.
Using the bios boot menu instead of the chimera boot menu allowed me to boot to the installer without any trouble.

Hope this helps someone!

At last after hours all is ok with Yosemite on my Zotac Z77-ITX!
Sound works on ALC892 using Multibeast 6.0.1 for Mavericks, all USB works after deleting the generic usb kext, trim enabled with Trim Enabler 3.2.6! ICloud works, iMessage.. not.
It's been a loooong afternoon, thank for all the advices and good night!:thumbup:

I am having the same problem as some people on the first page encountered. This happens when I try to boot from my USB. I've properly formatted it with unibeast, and I've deleted the said lines of code in the OP. :b

if you're having the crossed-out-circle-on-grey-screen error on a GA Z87N-wifi or similar board definitely delete 3rd party sata kext (as well as the things mentioned in the first post in this thread)

Everything running smoothly except bluetooth!

Anyone getting this after they install from USB drive and then restart from their HDD install drive?

I should mention I am on Chimera 2.2.1 - do I have to install mavericks again and then upgrade chimera to 4.0?!

..or is there some way to do it from Unibeast USB or terminal?

Thank you wonderful community!

This should be mentioned on the steps, I was confused about this until now. Thanks a bunch

What is the process of installing the kext.
Do I have to delete one first?
Can you outline the steps for me?

Sorry, new to this kext stuff :)
