Selecting kernel after install?

Recommended Posts

Hi, first I wanna say a great thanks for all the work gone into this - its the only version of Yosemite that even boots on my machine! Secondly to my question - I am running this on a Haswell laptop (i7 4710) and as such use the /haswell boot option to load up the installer. This all goes perfectly and the system is installed and loads up the Chameleon bootloader after a restart. This is as far as it gets however. Upon selecting my new install, I simply get the instant reboot as if the Haswell kernel is not being used. I went through all the options in the customization for the install and couldn't see an option to enable the Haswell kernel in the install. I assumed in this case that it might install itself but it doesn't seem like this has happened. If I try to boot using the /haswell boot flag it simply says it cannot find the kernel. Is there something I am missing here? An option I need to select in the installer to get the right kernel installed? It seems as if I'm so close I just need to get the right kernel as literally the only boot flag I used to boot the system was /haswell.

if possible send me the Installer log and i have seen a lot of people experiencing the same issue

you can fix it manually 

boot into USB with /haswell

now open Terminal

i assume that the name of your volume where Mac installed as"Mac OS"

cp -f /Volumes/"Image Volume"/haswell   /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
rm -rf  /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Caches
kextcache -u  /Volumes/"Mac OS"

Thanks for the reply. I can confirm this works to boot the system. Whereabouts are the logs stored as I would be happy to upload them?

 

Now I just need to work out a way of getting the graphics (Intel HD 4600 mobile) to work. I don't suppose anyone has had much luck in getting this to work? I know the support was removed by Apple in Yosemite and unfortunately all the information I'm finding on the web either doesn't work - have tried patching the Intel kexts to no avail and the other method I've found unfortunately involves clover which I have had no luck in getting my system to boot with.

@Matt Armes

hey mister did you got the solution for your HD4600????? because right now I just try the solution below and I think it will be good. for the haswell also I put busrastio=20 and cpus=1 and work without the haswell but I will try.

 

 

Hey After do some test I got at start Can't find /System/Library/Kernels/haswell 

 

what I did it was put all the adress /System/Library/Kernels/kernel/haswell

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
