Zotac ID91 Hackintosh Yosemite Clover Install Guide

By March 16, 2016 One Comment

This guide is written to get you up and running with the latest OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 with Clover bootloader.  I used to use MultiBeast but it took a while to learn Clover, however the advantages are worth the learning curve.  This guide should get you up and running on a Zotac ID91 – a perfect <$400 hackintosh!

Pre-Requisites:

  • Download latest OS X Yosemite on a Mac – or find it on the bitttorrents
  • 8GB or greater USB Key
  • Software:

Latest Clover bootloader from Sourceforge

1.  Format an 8gb or greater USB Key with 1 partition – GUID boot loader – and OS X Journled partition.

2.  Run the following – replacing XXX with the location of your USB Drive.
sudo /Applications/Install OS X Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/XXX/ --applicationpath /Applications/Install OS X Yosemite.app --no interaction

This will extract Yosemite onto your USB Key

3.  Install Clover – with following settings

Now we must mount the EFI Partition and add our Extensions to the 10.10 kexts folder to make things work ootb.

To mount your EFI Partition, use

diskutil list

Determine your drive and EFI Partition and mount with

diskutil mount disk1s1

Add the following kexts to your EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.10 folder –

AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
ApplePS2Controller.kext
FakeSMC.kext
lspcidrv.kext
NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
Patched_10.7_AppleRTC.kext

Restart with the new USB Key

Goto Options > Binaries Patching Menu >  Kernel PM Patch and hit spacebar to enable it

Boot the installer

Format your boot drive with GUID bootloader and Mac OS X Journaled

Stuck in a reboot loop?

Remember if you restart at this point, the Kernel PM must be enabled each time – until we install Clover on the main boot drive –
