Just to make sure I got this guide right before I jump into it:
Now, can I directly update to El Capitan from the Clover USB stick onto the Chimera Yosemite partition? It seems to me there are steps missing for this direct transition. If that is the case (or not), can someone point me in the right direction? Do I need to create a Yosemite Clover stick first? Scratching my head.

Read through this whole article to find the answer.

Don't know if it's me who is missing something but this actually is a complete clover guide, my dear fellow...

Not sure I completely agree. The switching test of booting with USB has not fork in the road. Perhaps what folks are running to is where it never completes to boot from HDD. Then what go back to square 1, yet where is square 1? So yes it is a guide, however; it gets muddy when problems are encountered. :)

I agree with this statement. The suggested switching test is good only if you are successful on booting from HDD, but what if you are not?

You did make a CCC backup of your system drive first ?

Nope. Will do next time though.


Found this by Toleda:

Since the 10.11 Installer replaces AppleHDA.kext;
1. disable SIP (0x3)
2. restart
3. View Raw/audio_cloverALC-110.command /Save (Use .zip)/select file/double click file, answer questions
4. enable SIP (0x0)
5. restart

Worked like a charm :)

Hi,

Once I boot into USB the mouse and keyboard stop working and I can't proceed at the the vert first step where you have to choose the language. Any tips? I am using wired mouse/keyboard. They work prior to this stage.
