Hi everyone !

Today I wanted to install OS X El Capitan on my Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13, but I couldn't get to the installer screen. Here is what I've done :

I already have a working OS X El Capitan on my desktop computer, and I prepared a USB flash drive from this computer with the last version of Unibeast.

Booted from the USB, I had a Memory problem, which I've resolved by adding some lines in the config.plist file.

Now I'm getting the famous error : "Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport !"

Here's my laptop configuration :

Laptop Model : Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13

CPU : Intel Core i5-3317U @ 1.70 Ghz

Chipset :
Northbridge Intel Ivy Bridge rev. 09
Southbridge Intel ID1E56 rev. 04

Memory :
8 Gbytes DDR3
Single Channel
Memory Frequency 798.1 MHz
CAS Latency 11

Graphics :
Intel HD4000 series 1600x900I've used some flags to try to get rid of this issue, but none of these worked.

Here is a photo which shows the issue :

I know this is a known issue, but I didn't succeed to get trough this issue, if you guys have any advice, I'll take it !

Thanks to all,

Adem

Thank you for the answer !

So I didn't use Unibeast to create the Bootable USB, I followed the tutorial in your link with clover.

A this point, I had the same Memory Issue, which I fixed by adding this to the config.plist :


<key>Memory</key>
<dict>
<key>Channels</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>SlotCount</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>Modules</key>
<array>
<dict>
<key>Slot</key>
<integer>0</integer>
<key>Size</key>
<integer>8192</integer>
<key>Frequency</key>
<integer>1600</integer>
<key>Vendor</key>
<string>Micron Technology</string>
<key>Part</key>
<string>16KTF1G64HZ-1G6D1</string>
<key>Serial</key>
<string>E973739C</string>
<key>Type</key>
<string>DDR3</string>
</dict>
</array>
</dict>
</dict>

(If someone would like to use this, you will have to modify it according to your Memory Configuration).

Ofcourse, you will have to copy the same config.plist when installing Clover to your SSD/HDD , otherwise the same issue will appear.

Now, I have to fix some hardware problems :

- Audio , Bluetooth, WiFi not working.
- Battery Status not working.

I'll check in the forum.

Thanks again for the help

Sometimes config.plist/SMBIOS/Trust=true can help too. Otherwise, yes, you can specify the memory configuration manually.

SMBIOS/Trust=true is default in all my plist files, but some people will tend to overwrite/omit it when they customize the SMBIOS serial#.
