Ok report back later this week, let me know if there was a crash and if it's still stable I will update guide to include this information. Thanks a lot!

So far so good !
I'm testing Yosemite now for 3 days without any crashes. Browsing internet, youtube etc all goes flawless. So disable your onboard LAN (ethernet), and use a USB -> Ethernet adapter ($20) if you experience random crashes using internet. I'm a happy man again :)

The only thing whats bothering me now is that when I shut down my computer, is shuts down, but then starts up again.. Also 'sleep' isnt working, while before, if i remember good, it was working.

Do you know a solution to this Malki?
I red somewhere that sleep mode isn't supported, but powering off should just work right ?

Glad it's working! I'll update the guide and credit you for your work. Thank you!

Before I upgraded to El Capitan, when I used Yosemite and installed it according to this guide, I had zero issues (aside from the internet freeze bug). There was no problem shutting down thats for sure. Sleep was also working (although I never use sleep). Check and see if you maybe installed something that has a known issue with Yosemite. Sometimes that happens with external devices.

Thanks for adding me to the credits!

I'm think it's maybe because of upgrading the bios to F21A that this powering-off / sleep problem comes up. Because i didn't install a lot of extra stuff yet. I hope they update to a new stable bios soon.

Didn't try it yet, but maybe i will in the near future. But on the gigabyte site it's still F21a (not F21c), and both are beta bios. (I found the F21C bios on another website though). They are still testing i guess.

I think the power-off problem has something to do with the 'nullpowermanagement' kext i installed .

Another question, can i just install updates for Yosemite via the apple updater ? It says there are some security updates, itunes updates etc. Can i just run it like on a normal apple ?

I also recommend that you update to the last Yosemite version (10.10.5). See Posts #1 & #2 > http://www.tonymacx86.com/os-x-updates/170198-os-x-10-10-5-update.html.

Thanks for the help but i'm already on 10.10.5 :)

I was wondering if i could install the Security Update 2016-002 (and up) from the App Store just by clicking the App Store 'update' button, or that i had to do this manually?
Because i red on the forum some users got kernel panic, or broken Nvidea drivers after they installed certain Security Updates..it's probably wise to do a full system backup anyway.

I also red that the kernel needs to be patched again after installing a Security Update, however i don't know if this had to be done on this particular one..

Has anybody updated their system with these Security Updates ? Which ones are 'safe' ?

Yes, you can do the security updates from the MAS. However, once it's rebooted, you may lose audio and TRIM. (I can't remember too much about that update because it was too long ago (mid 2015?).) So, you'll have to rerun MultiBeast for Yosemite just selecting the appropriate audio driver.
