Requirements for making USB Installer 

:-8GB USB Flash drive

Steps for Making USB Installer

1.Format your USB Flash Drive as GUID/MBR partition map with a HFS+ partition from Disk Utility 
2.Mount your 10.10 Yosemite image from /Application/Install OS X Yosemite Beta /Contents/Shared Support/InstallESD.dmg)
3.Then mount BaseSystem.dmg by this terminal commands
    open /Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.dmg
4.Restore “OS X Base System” to your USB Flash Drive using disk utility
5.Navigate to USB drive/System/Installation & Delete the “Packages” Alias then copy the “Packages” folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location.
6. Copy BaseSystem.chunklist and BaseSystem.dmg from InstallESD.dmg to USB

7. Install Enoch Boot Loader (Enoch-rev.2390 and higher) on USB drive
8. Create the new folder name as “Extra” on the USB
9. Put SMBIOS in Extra folder 8.1 for Laptop support and 3.1 for Desktop support
10. Copy essential kexts to /USB/Extra/Extensions on your USB stick

Necessary Kext for booting the Installer
NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
FakeSMC.kext
Voodoo
PS2Controller.kext
11.Make a Org.Chameleon.Boot.Plist with following
If you are HP user like me then simply Add cpus=1 along with kext-dev-mode=1 for botting OS X to avoid Kernel Panic related to LocalACPI
 
12.Create the new folder name as “Kernels” on the USB/System/Library/ and place your kernel here
13.Download MBR Patch and replace the following 
OSInstall.mpkg replace to
    /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg
OSInstaller replace to
    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/OSInstaller.framework/Versions/A/OSInstaller
Note:-Always boot with kext-dev-mode=1 to use unsigned kext like above

  • It works! I tried everything to get Yosemite installed on my unsupported 2006 Mac Pro 1,1. But this is the only guide that got me up and running. THANKS!

  • Anytime 😀

  • I somehow installed mavericks to a MBR-partitioned MBPR, and when it came time to install yosemite, i was worried I'd have to copy off my bootcamp/mavericks installation,reformat as guid… now I can hopefully get it done without doing all that 🙂 thank you so much, I never write thanks to people, this is probably a first haha
