Hey, Minihack,

Last night, I updated my NUC D54250WYK with 10.10.3 update from Apple Store. Now, it reboots by itself in a loop. I checked the 10.10.3 treads, and someone mentioned AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext was the culprit of the issue. I rebooted in Safe mode, and removed AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext. Yes, I was able to boot normally, but of course, now the graphics performance is sooooo slow.

Any suggestions? Wait for new Clover?

Thank you in advance!

I had the same issue and I was able to resolve it installing the latest version of clover, adding the following parameters in the clover config file. I used Clover Configurator to do that.

Also you have to put back AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext into /System/Library/Extensions

Apply the following permissions an group

sudo -s chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext
sudo -s chown root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext

If you prefer you can put back AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext dragging this extension in Kext Utility

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards

P.S.: As a did several tries to solve the issue, I ending updating the system again employing the OSXUpdCombo10.10.3.dmg from apple

I am also having this problem. Intel 5000 kext out and I can boot fine but with gimped graphics. I have tried this graphic configuration change in clover configurator as suggested but - no luck.

Smoc, thank you for the information.

I've tried to follow your instruction, but I cannot even mount EFI volume. Even after a clean installation with 10.10.3. EFI wouldn't mount. When I run Clover installation, I get "The Installation Failed" error.

I ran into the same issue when trying to update my Clover config while running in Safe Mode. After removing AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext in Safe Mode, reboot the machine so that it's no longer running in Safe Mode. You can then put AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext back in place with Kext Utility and should be able install the latest and greatest Clover and mount your EFI partition as needed.

After deleting an existing framebuffer patch I had in place and updating as @Smoc suggested, my NUC works fine.

Just wondering what framebuffer patch you deleted. Was it the AppleIntelFramebufferAzul patch?


Also - based upon what I read, I tried an update method, but it didn't work - although I thought it should. What I tried was

NOTE: THIS DID NOT WORK FOR ME (yet)

1) Backup to Time Capule
2) With Clover Configurator, mount EFI, open the existing config.plist and add the Intel Injection as Smoc suggested. Save to the EFI partition under a different name, e.g. config.plist.new
3) Download the 10.10.3 Combo Update and install
4) After installation and upon the first reboot, enter the OSX Recovery partition
5) Open a Terminal, mount the EFI partition and swap the config.plists, sync, and unmount
6) Reboot to the normal partition

NOTE: THIS DID NOT WORK FOR ME (yet)

I ended up getting the boot loop when the graphics tried to load. I could move the HD5000 kext out of the way as you say and log in normally, but with bad graphics.

What befuddles me is --- if the solution is just to update the config.plist, why didn't my pre-modified plist work the first time? Maybe re-installing clover does something more than just change the config.plist. I'll try it again when I get some time.


====================================================
EDIT:
The following did work for me...

Over in the 10.10.3 discussion thread, user tr43 said that the 10.10.3 upgrade worked "perfectly" . It turns out he is using the DSDT, kexts, and configs from http://osxonthinkpads.wikidot.com/10-10-x-on-intel-nuc-i5-4250

The page has a great technical write up on the various mods for our NUCs and the configuration happened to use the same wireless/BT card that I picked up. So this is what I did...

1) Downloaded the file package from http://osxonthinkpads.wikidot.com/10-10-x-on-intel-nuc-i5-4250
2) Created a valid serial number and edited the config.plist (I used Clover Configurator, but only to edit the serial number)
3) I reinstalled Clover r3193 making sure that I installed OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 driver (I didn't use the version 2 driver the first time and may have been why it didn't work for me earlier)
4) Copied over the kexts, ACPI/patched, and modified config.plist to the EFI partition
5) Rebooted to make sure that everything was fine - it was.
6) Downloaded the 10.10.3 Combo Update and installed
7) Rebooted - worked "perfectly"

If you don't want to change your Clover drivers as much as I did, you might look into whether you installed the version 2 driver OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 driver. This was not part of Minihack's original guide (so I didn't select it). Combine this with the IntelInjection above and you might have more success.

This is the same thing happening to me. I deleted a framebuffer kext and tried the graphics injection and no love. I'm using Clover r3193.

Thank you all so much for the help.
