I've upgraded directly from 10.9.5 to 10.10 using the original Apple Yosemite Installer on both my G5 and G4 Cube. No USB Installer is needed, as long as you have FakeSMC.kext etc. installed in your EFI partition.

No issues whatsoever. This is so cool! :thumbup:

For details see my clover guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/powermac-g5/58976-power-mac-g5-intel-reloaded-edition-new-pics-6.html#post882675

Its there some tool to fully erase chimera from a USB flash drive? I have one that I had installed chimera before and everytime that I boot it keeps pooping up with chimera.

This is not on the EFI partition of that USB Flash drive is on the drive itself. I do the partition on disk utilities and I see nothing there them I install clover on it but it keep coming up with a chimera boot.

I'm writing all zeros with disk utilities now to see if this fix the problem. I have no Idea where that chimera boot is coming from.

If you guys find anything on this can you send it my way. thank you.

Just use Tonys guide and make a new, clean Clover USB installer. Then use a MOBO specific guide and install Clover to the UEFI partition of your system drive. Your hack will then behave almost like a real Mac.

This is how I have it set up. I was just thinking about taking Chimera out of the mbr on the boot drive.

I'm thinking about doing what you did the just a normal upgrade. I'm backing up my system first. I have a Z87X – UT5H booting with clover.

I probably should upgrade the version of clover first.

I am trying to install Yosemite using Clover on my system. I have a X58a-UD3R motherboard. When I boot with the USB installer, it boots up to the point where it shows PCI Configuration Begin and then it hangs. I have followed tonymac's guide to the tee but am not having any luck. Any idea on how to fix this?

When you say "MOBO specific guide" do you mean guide for Clover or mobo guide for everything else (audio, ethernet, etc)?

I have a silly question - if Clover solves all of the problems listed in the top post and makes hack behave almost like a real mac, why do we use Chimera in Unibeast/Multibeast? All of the boards in the buyer's guide support UEFI, do they not?

There are still tons of people that don't have UEFI boards. On top of that, UniBeast/MultiBeast combination is a bit easier when you're first starting out.
