Finally! I successfully installed Yosemite (10.10.3), using the UniBeast/MultiBeast/Chimera installation procedures, and didn't have to use maxmem=8192. (Zorro has 16GB of memory.) If I didn't use maxmem flag, I'd get the dreaded "deadbeef" error. I couldn't figure it out...then, I remembered that Son-of-Zorro used a graphics card, although it only has 8GB of memory...
...so, I tried a spare graphics card (HD6450). BINGO!! Runs as good as Yosemite should run, and iMessage works with FileNVRAM 1.1.4. (See http://www.tonymacx86.com/general-help/110471-how-fix-imessage.html guide's Chapter 6 for how to get and install FileNVRAM 1.1.4.)
HD3000 in Yosemite is the bad boy here. It's the infamous Yosemite framebuffer problem. Ugh!
For those of you who will want to stay with HD3000 and are having problems (deadbeef and other KPs), take a look at toleda's http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/125239-hd4600-hd4000-hd3000-framebuffer-edits.html guide.
So, since Zorro is being used as a "production" system, I'll just keep the Gigabyte HD6450 installed and not waste anymore time on HD3000. My production system will still be Mavericks, but I'll keep "playing" with Yosemite to see it mature...maybe.
Ok, thank you!Unfortunately, I have no knowledge of whether or not the 5650 will work in Yosemite. However, IMO, the only way is to backup your system and update to Yosemite. BTW, from where did you download Yosemite?
If you do have a problem, check for a solution in the Graphics forum section, especially Fl0r!an's Radeon Compatibility Guide - ATI/AMD Graphics CardsOk, thank you!
And BTW I just learned (here on the left) that my graphic card is not 5650 but 5570
