    The Award Bios part is basically who makes the BIOS - sort of.. If you go into the BIOS it will often say Award, Phoenix, etc somewhere..

    The 5 or 6 series part has to do with the Intel chipset. For example a P55 chipset is a 5 series chipset used on the original i3/5/7 CPUs. a Z68 chipset would be from Sandy Bridge i3/5/7 CPU time frame..

    Fixed the issue. The problem lied in the fact that I didn't download Yosemite from that same computer. The "Install OS X Yosemite" app must be in the Applications folder as it would normally. I downloaded directly from the app store, launched Unibeast and it was recognized as an option. Hope this helps.

    For some unexplainable reason, Yosemite installed, but Safari is nowhere to be found. The icon in the dock is there, but I get an error when I click it. And the app is just not there. Odd.

    Yes, just skip the disk utility part. Click continue installation instead. I successfully did an update from Mavericks this way.

    Read the Rules.

    "AMD nor Atom CPUs and NVIDIA, ATI, VIA or SIS desktop chipsets are not supported by the methods and software on this site and will not work. Any post requesting help for or asking about these will be deleted".

    Apple do not use AMD processors so there is no support.
