Hopefully this is the right place to post. I've installed El Capitan V2 from this thread: http://forum.amd-osx.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=404
I had to use nv_disable=1 to get the installer to boot, but otherwise the installer seems to work fine. I've installed to a disk, rebooted back into the USB and run through all the command listed in the first post on this thread. Rebooted back to the USB's bootloader, selected the newly installed disk, specify nv_disable=1 again and let it boot.
It boots fine, I get to the GUI setup wizard where I can select my location... but my Logitech USB keyboard & mouse don't work. I've tried the following combinations of boot parameters:
nv_disable=1 UseKernelCache=No USBBusFix=Yes
-x nv_disable=1 UseKernelCache=No USBBusFix=Yes
Without the -x, I couldn't get it to boot at all with UseKernelCache=No. I received tons of "Invalid Kernel Opcode" messages. With the -x, it boots, but still no USB keyboard & mouse
I've read a bit about the USB fix on here, but I'm a bit confused as to what I'm meant to be doing. I didn't have to install anything into the installer image to make it work, my understanding is that the latest version of the image already includes the fix... It looks like I have to install the USB fix onto the new install as well, but I don't quite understand how I do this. I've seen this thread viewtopic.php?t=76
but it looks like you need to run an app, Kext Wizard. What I don't understand is how I can use this tool, if I can't get into the OS to actually run the app? Is there a way I can manually install the USB fix? If so, what is the best way?
Alright, why do I always do this? I seriously have a habit of spending hours trying to get something to work... eventually give up and post a request for help... decide to keep looking for a fix while I wait for a reply and end up fixing it almost straight way?
I just found the El Capitan / Sierra USB fix on this page: http://forum.amd-osx.com/app.php/bbdown ... kexts.html
Downloaded it on my MacBook and threw all the files into the /Extra folder on the USB installer. Booted into the installer, opened the Terminal...
cd /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Extra
cp -R *.kext /Volumes/macOS/System/Library/Extensions
Reboot machine, boot from the HDD via the USB bootloader, use nv_disable=1 and USBBusFix=yes... guess what? My USB keyboard and mouse work now!
I'll continue and see how far I get now
