    I don’t understand Step #7. Step #6 was installing it on the computer… Are you saying that after we install OS X in Step #6, we have to install it again?

    I just skipped Step #7 and it booted from the SSD just fine.

    So how do I get wi-fi and bluetooth and the keyboard and trackpad working?

    I’m assuming I need t get the correct drivers and install them?

        This time when the OS X installed from USB Installer to HDD that you preferred then from clover or transmac bootloader then just select the OS X HD that you nearly installed mac on it.

    okay Faiz Orz, thanx. i will just try any boot flag.

    do i have to format first my hdd before installing mac os? ‘coz it has already an existing windows 7 on it. i didn’t format it ‘coz if this mac os won’t work on my system, i don’t have to install again the windows 7.

    1. blankFaiz Orz Post author Reply

      Make you sure that you have a Bootable USB with windows 7 then in cause if you failed to install OS X then reinstall windows 7 again and if you want to install OS X then you have to create a partition for OS X to install it on that drive. So in this cause you will need to partition the Disk, mostly it happened to me while installing OS X, the system couldn’t create the partition for OS X because it wants to erase or clean the hole disk and when I did then I was able to partition the disk for OS X.

        oh! okay. how about UEFI configuration? any configuration should be changed before installing el capitan?

      2. blankspr00kz

        just like BIOS settings. new mobos have UEFI settings. haven’t u heard that? what mobo did u use when u install mac os in this tutorial?

      3. blankFaiz Orz Post author

        There is no guide for UEFI settings because you are going to boot directly from the USB Installer. It’s not the Unibeast way to make changes in the BIOS and then it will be able to boot up the clover menu.

      Try to boot using different boot flags like booting with nv_disbale=1 -v and depends on your system. other boot flags are mentioned in the article above.

      Your setup should made with legacy mode not UEFI with Unibeast and in Bios Settings enable Legacy and disable Secure boot and disable USB 3.0 then boot into clover and add Bootflags :- dart=0 cpus=1 nv_disable=1 -v
      use these 4 bootflags only with these i was successful to install.

    But now the problem is after restarting and selecting the drive its not going into the system,after some lines of codes its restarting,if i try some other boot flags its hanging at “debugger not configured hanging” error,so i m using previously used boot flags.

      Now boot into the same USB Installer and when you get into the system, then edit and apply all the configuration on your system that you applied on your USB installer. Including config.plist and don’t forget to install and update your graphics driver.

    Hello, I’m trying to install this Release on a Samsung R720 Laptop (4GB RAM, Transcend SSD 370S, ATI® Mobility Radeon HD4650 1024 MB GDDR3, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.2GHz), but after booting up the first stages, the screen turns black and the laptop reboots.
    I’ve also tried a couple of combinations of the advised line:
    npci=0x3000 , npci=0x2000 , USBBusFix=Yes , cpus=1 , PCIRootUID=1, IGPEnabler=Yes or IGPEnabler=No, GraphicsEnabler=Yes or GraphicsEnabler=No

    Can you help me, please?

      Hi Dear Mike,
      I suggest you when the screen goes black then on that time use the HDMI port and share your screen with your TV or another screen by HDMI Cable it may work but if it didn’t work then your system Intel Core 2 Duo is not campititable with Mac OS X El Capitan.

      1. blankMike

        I’ve tried two HDMI cables on two different monitors and I couldn’t switch to the external screen, all FN-Functions work, except for this one and I have the suspicion that this feature (switch to external screen) is a software driven feature once a GUI is started. I remember I was able doing that when Linux was installed, but obviously durin boot while in text mode, this isn’t working for that Laptop. (For a Zotac zbox it DOES work). What I’ve also tried: Close the Laptop Lid as the Laptop turns off the internal Display, but that didn’t help either.
        I guess, now I’m out of options, or are there more things which I could try?

      2. blankFaiz Orz Post author

        Watch the video on youtube ( ) I have recorded the video on the external screen using HDMI Cable and this work and shows everything while it’s powered on and connected to my laptop. So, I think this do not need a software-driven feature.
        UPDATE: Sorry, the links are removed from YouTube. Sorry for the inconvenience.

      3. blankMike

        Well, as I said, I do not see anything on the screen. I think the issue I’m having is rather that in my BIOS I cannot set the SATA mode to AHCI and there is also no option in the BIOS to let UEFI boot first. I only can chose “Legacy support” on/off and that spoils the boot of the stick. Moreover I’ve tried the classic way with downloading Osx El Capitan from the App Store and installed it to the stick with UniBeast. Same story. In both methods, I cannot even see the first Clover Menu due to lack of the mentioned BIOS option. There is no BIOS updates for that Laptop. I think I have to give up on that Laptop.

      4. blankFaiz Orz Post author

        Yeah, it because you should choose legacy support while creating USB installer with UniBeast. and because of your processor is Intel Core duo 2, so it may not compatible with Mac OS X El Capitan.

    2. blankDarshan Mothreja Reply

      There is no Virtualization for Intel Core Duo 2 so I don’t think you can install Mac on your system even with VMWare/ VirtualBox.

      Hello Dear Heythem
      As I think you didn’t Configure your BIOS for El Capitan, Once please make sure that it’s all right.
      Then if no, let me know and I will try my best for guiding you guys. Sorry for late replying

        Hello Dear Heythem
        In the article i have some instructions for how to boot into Installer By Boot Flags. There are many Boot args Please once try them and they must work for you. like me when i want to boot into USB Installer then i use (NV_Disable=1) boot flag, well it disbale Nvdia gfx. But after installing OS X Then you need to installer the drivers like nvdia manully, if you use NV_Disable=1.

      4. blankheythem

        Hi Faiz
        need you to explain something I see flags with-without :/ should I write the symbol first?
        is flag “: /amd -v” refer to processer or graphic card beacue I have intel processer “Intel i7-4790 Haswell” and “AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series” Graphic card

      5. blankFaiz Orz Post author

        Hello Again Dear Heythem
        Yeah, USE Boot flag like: (AMD -v) not like (/amd -v) apply these to all but if you want to enter 2 boot flag’s then in the middle use /
        also, type (-v) at the ends of your boot flag’s to show the diagnostic messages, by this you will know that what’s your problem and what’s wrong with it.

      6. blankheythem

        Hi again
        1-I tried to write the whole line
        “npci=0x3000 , npci=0x2000 , USBBusFix=Yes , cpus=1 , PCIRootUID=1, IGPEnabler=No, GraphicsEnabler=No”
        2-the first time give me error but the second is start finally and I reached to that point “when Mac ask for restart”
        but after that I faced problem like before
        please let me know how can I fix this asap!

    Thanks for your great article,
    Can you please follow-up with the post-installation guide? Specifically, USB is not working after installing USB-related kexts with MultiBeast.

      1. blankLike Hackintosh

        Thanks for your quick reply.

        I tried MultiBeast 8.2.1 which is bundled with USB installation options.
        2 (3rd Party USB 3.0, 7/8/9 Series USB Support) pass and 1 fails (Increase Max Port Limit).
        When I finish, reject USB and try to boot from Hard directly, login screen appears, graphics seems to be installed properly, but USB keyboard and mouse are not working at all. (Booting from USB and then starting system from hard is totally fine.) I use Legacy Boot (not UEFI) which I wonder this is a problem.

        I searched and checked a lot of articles, but it seems like MultiBeast 8.2.1 contains most of their workaround. (FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext)

        I use Dell Optiplex 7010, will you please check if this model doesn’t meet the requirements of El Capitan?

        ** At STEP #7, I think it’d be better to mention the installation requires 2 times of reboot.
        Also want to avoid confusion on these 2 things, selecting USB from BIOS boot menu and then booting from USB actually (Sorry, I might miss something).

        Thanks again!

    I imagine the performance on a pc hardware must be as bad as Windows…
    why go all through the trouble if you can get for cheap a MacBook with Intel cup for 200/300 ?

      dear tuber, you’re right somehow,
      but some laptops and desktops with Intel cup with SSD hard disk + graphic card, you can run Mac OS X with well performance on PC.

      You’re right dear Tuber.
      You can have the same performance if you install the bootloader. The Mac operating system is going to work perfectly.

      If your laptop is Lenovo so it has a small button beside the charger place. it’s called Novo button or one key recovery. push and hold that button then your computer will automatically start and the boot manager screen will pop up. If again you did not get, let us know.

      2. blankMukhtar Jafari

        Once try this. “Fix the time and date before installing” or something like that. Here’s how to resolve while booted from the install disk:

        1. Utilities > Terminal
        2. Fix the date and time, e.g., date 101407002015 (i.e., Oct 14, 07:00 2015)
        3. Click Restart (sadly, there’s no other option to go back and try again)

        I have the same problem on my Medion Desktop PC, it has a Intel Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5700 @3.00 GHz.
        It start up completly but at the installation manager it says that OS X El Capitan is already installed, so i changed date and time to what you said here above, but it doesn’t help.
        So I tried it now for several times but it still isn’t working. Do you have other options that I can try?
