Basically right now I am stuck at "BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist : 2 No such file or directory" Any ideas on how to get passed this? I already tried dart=0

What bootloader are you using? Did you remove nvidia kexts?

You will probably also need to remove all Intel graphics kexts as I do not think the retina display will work with HD4600.

You're welcome to try, but so far the only success has been on machines with IrisPro.

As far as I know no one has gotten OS X to work at retina resolutions with HD4600 (only HD5000+).

Where would the nvidia kext be located because I don't think my USB boot loader has any. I am using Clover.

All kexts are in /System/Library/Extensions.

Nvidia kexts are NVDA*, Geforce*.

Are you launching the installer via USB or is this post-install?

Did you boot "-f" after removing kexts (or if post-install, rebuild cache)?

Always post quality photo of the result. We are not telepathic.

Probably. It will be an uphill battle, if not impossible, due to the high resolution screen and lack of HD5000.

You were going to upload a verbose photo and never did.

Yes I will. I have my last final exam tomorrow so I'll have more time to mess around with the razor blade.
