Installation Guide : Intel Haswell NUC Core i5 (D54250WYK) V2

I will not be making any video tutorials for this. My time does not allow, and a well written guide means less errors (Subject to end user paying attention to detail) ;)

My Christmas holiday period will be starting shortly where I plan to write up a new guide for Yosemite. Yes I'm late to the party with this, but my time simply doesnt allow me to spend as much time writing and checking guides etc as I used to. I'm also heavily involved in some development work right now, so doing countless installs and reinstalls is not good.

I also was not impressed at all with the initial releases of Yosemite; I will probably time the guide with the release of 10.10.2. If anyone wants to install sooner, there are plenty of guides on the forum to get you going.

I also have no intention of using Yosemite myself on a production machine any time soon. It seems ok for retina systems, but not so great for non-retina, particularly in relation to my development work.

I've read that 10.10.2 seems more stable for WiFi. Thanks. I prefer to wait. I'm not so hurry too.

Hi,

I am a newbie of Intel Nuc and I want to buy one of this.

One question:

Is possible to use the computer at this link for an installation of OSX?

Thanks a lot
Bye
It will not work using this guide alone, but it could maybe be made to work but for the graphics (HD 4400) you will need to not only inject frame buffer, but also device -id (for instance see this thread: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks-desktop-support/126737-how-make-intel-hd-4400-work-3.html
)

You will almost certainly need to use a patched Kernel so a Clover install will probably be an easier option than Chimera/Unibeast.

There is no disclosure on the site of what audio codec, LAN or WLAN is inside the box, so expect that to be a fair amount of work.

If no-one else has done this board before it will not be a trivial exercise. If you are experienced in doing this kind of thing it might make an interesting challenge, but then I guess if you are asking the question it probably means you have not done a lot of hacks before.....so might be a world of hurt and frustration. Whichever is the case, this thread will not get you very far and you will need to start from scratch.

Hello can someone help me to remove this. I accidentally installed Windows 8 on my Nuc with Mavericks on it on another partition. I remove it, but the "UEFI startup" its still there.
BTW its in Spanish
Look at the Attachment.

WonkeyDonkey: I'm anxiously awaiting your update to your installation guide for Yosemite on the Intel NUC. I have some time over the New Year's extended holiday so let me know if you would like help testing your updated installation guide. I have a NUC D5250WYKH with 8 GB RAM and 120 GB mSATA SSD. I would really like to get this working with Yosemite early in 2015!
