Thanks for the installation steps and recommendations. It all worked fine with the 10.11.4 update when setting in the Boot Args "nv_disable=1" and then update the Nvidia web drivers.

My setup, i5, EVGA GeForce GT 730, Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 5. So far no problems, USB, Audio and Wifi all seems to work.

Thanks

This does indeed work but unfortunately you cannot mount your EFI partition in Safe Mode in OSX. The reason is because you cannot read/write FAT32 partitions in Safe Mode.

I have a Windows 10 partition that I booted into and used the first reply to this post to mount the EFI partition.

You could also use a Linux USB boot drive to access the EFI partition.

Essentially what you need to do is:
1. Delete OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi in EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI
2. Copy OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi to EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI

Once done you should be able to boot back into OSX.

I was having the same problem and I followed your post, now I'm getting into this indeterministic state. Some times system hangs before boot complete (I've attached a boot log), some times it boots fine, some times the original issue happen (hangs immediately after the Apple log shows, no boot log found).

One thing I noticed is, when system failed to boot, there is no sign of injecting NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and
FakeSMC.kext in the log, but when it starts normally, I can see logs like "NullCPUPowerManagement::start" and "FakeSMC: 5 keys exported by Clover EFI".

I'm using Clover, the latest version.
Kexts: FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, RtWlanU.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, realtekALC.kext
No DSDT
Also attached my config.plist

Can someone help?

I updated Clover to r3504. After that I ran the App Store Update to 10.11.4 (from 10.11.3). And finally I updated the Nvidia web drivers.
Everything works perfect :D

EDIT:
I found one problem. After every start, my mac resets the graphics driver to default and I have to change it before shutdown. Otherwise I can not boot next time

SECOND EDIT:
The problem is, that OS X resets the nvram every time. Now I set nvda_drv=1 in clover and it works again :D

I'm very new to being a member of this site, got into a bad auto accident and my build is 10.7.5 Lion, is it safe to update to El Capitan with a build of Gigabyte z68xp-d4 3.59 Intel Core I7 Ati Radeon HD 6800 Series 2048 MB? I ran into a slew of issues after updating to 10.7.5 Kernel re kext issues with my graphics card.
Today Apple released 10.11.4, the fourth major update to OS X El Capitan. Update any supported system using the built-in Software Update functionality through the Mac App Store, or by using the standalone installer available from Apple.com.

Be sure to back up any important data, and if possible clone your hard drive before applying the update. If you have any issues post-update, boot using UniBeast created USB, press spacebar, and boot using Safe Mode.

What we know about 10.11.4 so far...
  • OS X Build 15E65
  • Kernel updated to Darwin 15.4.0
  • Kernel support for Skylake Systems without 'APIC Fix'
  • Updated Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD graphics drivers
  • This update will replace your audio drivers. If you enabled Realtek onboard audio using MultiBeast or the CloverALC110 script, no changes will be necessary.
  • Install OS X El Capitan App Updated - If you downloaded El Capitan from the App Store prior to today, and you want to have the latest version on your backup installer USB, simply log into the Mac App Store and click Download. The updated 10.11.4 Install OS X El Capitan App can be found in the Applications folder. You may then re-create your UniBeast installation USB.

Testing is now underway- this post will be updated. Good luck, and let us know how it goes! Report your results here.

Hello,

I'm currently on a Skylake i7-6700k system with a GTX 650 that had graphic acceleration working by default in 10.11.3. Since updating to .4, I can now only boot with nv_disable=1 which in turn gives me horrible resolution and graphics performance. Any thoughts on how to get full acceleration back?

Hi guys,
I am currently finishing my update from a rock-solid stable Mountain Lion hackintosh to a new Windows 10 / El Capitan dual boot.
I am writing my little guide as a contribution when I am done.
This is my problem: when I first install El Capitan from the USB EVERYTHING is perfectly recognized. Ethernet and USB3. Nothing needed from Multibeast. I can install FakeSMC and no problem. But the moment I update to 10.11.4, USB3 stops working and Ethernet card gets unrecognized.
I'm so sorry, my mistake. My problem has nothing to do with OS X Update but with FakeSMC. The moment I install it, goodbye.

If I install 7/8/9 USB drivers from Multibeast I am able to use all my ports (both USB3 and USB2) as USB2.
Is there an easy way of using first installation's kexts in 10.11.4?
What else can I do?

Thank you so much in advance,

Upon updating to 10.11.4, my audio stopped working. I downloaded the MultiBeast package for Yosemite and ran the following file, which immediately resolved my broken audio after rebooting. Hope this helps someone else.

Same deal with 10.11.5 - just reapplied the attached file.

Hi,
I have updated my hac to 10.11.4 last night via AppStore. When I booted it for the first time everything seems to be broken. My hac does neither boot in normal mode, save mode, with nv driver disabled nor from recovery disk or the installation USB.

Verbose mode gave me the error in the attachement.

Does someone know how to fix this? Restoring from TimeMachine Backup would help as well.

Thanks to everyone who can help me!

Nice and easy. I'm running Clover and updated via the App Store.

I made backups of my boot drive and EFI drive, then clicked updated in the App Store. When it rebooted, I checked to make sure TRIM and audio were working, then rebooted again for good measure. So far so good. :)

after further investigation it appears my /var/log/system.log is littered with:

Mar 23 12:38:58 nineofnine kernel[0]: MT=>Free:bEndMLMEEvent = 0, bEndControlEvent = 0, bEndBulkOutDataEvent = 0, bEndDequeuePacketEvent = 0, bEndLoadFWEvent = 1, bOnAsicSwitchChannel = 0, bOnMlmeHandler = 0
Mar 23 12:39:28 --- last message repeated 5198 times ---

does anyone know how to fix this? I have no idea where it comes from (well i guess the kernel)



EDIT: Figured it out, its my wifi dongle driver: RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext that is responsible. Guess its time I get a proper wifi card..

Did you solve this issue with this USB WiFI or did you buy a different one?

This issue also happened to me (also a lot of those lines during boot) when I got a new update for Mojave OS
