Added kexts:

/System/Library/Extensions/ACPIBatteryManager.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDAALC269.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/AsusNBFnKeys.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/EAPDFix.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/GenericUSBXHCI.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/LegacyAGPM.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/RealtekR1000SL.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext

Added plist:

/System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/MacBookPro8_4.plist

Clover files:

/Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/DSDT.aml
/Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (ROM and CustomUUID zeroed out)
/Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/TOOLS/Shell64U.efi (default one does not work)
/Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/HFSPlus-64.efi (replace VBoxHfs-64.efi)

In /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI you also need (for UEFI boot):

FSInject-64.efi (default)
OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi (select in Clover installer)
OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi (default)

Asus G73Sw OS X Yosemite 10.10.zip


To avoid black screen problem add the Board-ID into ConfigMap in the file /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist
Code: Select all
                                <key>Mac-942459F5819B171B</key>
                                <string>none</string>


For installation and first boot use a compatible Board-ID like Mac-FC02E91DDD3FA6A4

Hello,
it doesn't work here on my G73 using clover and your setup files... i have copied everything in the right folders, i did all the modifications in the right places but i just have black screen and a reboot . My G73 has bios modification for AICPUPM. I can only install Yosemite with latest chameleon, not with Clover. Any suggestion?
Thank you
K

If you use a patched BIOS, maybe your DSDT is different than mine and you can't use my patched one.

Compare your original DSDT with mine (attached), if they are different you need to apply the patches on yours instead of using mine.

Also disable AsusAICPUPM.

Hello,
thanks for your reply. My problem is with clover. With chameleon (latest one) i can boot and i can use it(with some problems, audio works just with applehda patched for mavericks etc etc). I would like to use clover for its great patches, that i can use internally in config.plist. Perhaps i have installed clover in a "bad" way. May you please give some more instructions on how to install clover with which exact parameters in this guide ? Thank you very much!

There are no special parameters for Clover install, just the files included in the package. It works on both UEFI and legacy mode.

This installer works for me
viewtopic.php?f=36&t=5009

Just change the Board-ID as I mentioned in OP.

Hi,

I used this installer viewtopic.php?f=36&t=5009 , installed latest clover like here http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-desk ... lover.html , copied all the files like in instructions (the Board-ID was already there Mac-FC02E91DDD3FA6A4, did not need to add anything), but i still get the black screen!!

This is is the last screen. It stays like this for ~2 mins and then goes black... Can someone please give some advice?

If you used my files, the Board-ID in config.plist is Mac-942459F5819B171B, you need to add it in AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.

Mac-FC02E91DDD3FA6A4 is iMac Board-ID, you may use it to avoid black screen in first boot but I don't recommend keep using it after post install.

I have tried to install using this guide on my G73Sw, but when I select the Yosemite install drive on the Clover boot screen it goes to the black apple screen and loads about 1/3 of the way then it just pauses for a while then restarts my computer.
