EDIT 20141118 :
Update runs fine from AppStore with 10.10.1 seeded today.
I am very very very late at coding Sfott, I have focused on Yosemite Server for my job lately.
I’ll do my best to go further and at least propose to avoid the boot.efi install for hardware that don’t need it.
Quick Use of this beta release for Yosemite Tests :
This release is ßeta ! :
Until officially released, and tested… to show Yosemite choice in the Settings Menu
so you can choose the System Os target, and its Installer…
you’ll have to go to 7) Extra Menu
Then in extra Menu you’ll see the Yosemite Option 9).
So far I’ve only tested with the GM, but you can choose the Public Beta ( I’ve not tested Yet at the time of writing )
Now, you’ll be able to choose your Yosemite version in the Settings Menu, 3) Select Os X System Version and 4) Select Os X Installer
Of course you still need to choose a USB stick to use.
Then go back to Main Menu and choose 4) Create / Patch SFOTT Key and go for it.
For Yosemite and until I finish the script, only 2) Create a New key in Autorun will create the USB Key.
Step by Step won’t work for Yosemite. It only works for Mavericks for now. I have to work on the Code and it’s not even I leave this Step by Step Option anyway.
So if you need to create a Key without patching the boot EFI, you’ll have to wait that I include an option for that. I’m working on it by the way.
I only Tested it with GM of Sfott.
I’m going to test with Public Betas, if I have Time.
Once Yosemite is available in the French AppStore, I’ll download it and test the script as is again.
Then I’ll release a New Sfott script with Yosemite included by default…
EDIT : Downloading Yosemite Rigth now. Testing it ASAP.
Recovery HD :
Recovery is Created during install but not working.
Pike’s working on it, and we’re all testing out the boot.efi.
Until done, well Recovery won’t work, so beware with Filevault
- ONLY CONSIDER YOSEMITE FOR TESTING if you want/need FILEVAULT ( iMessage too I think )
I do test on a MacMini2,1 as I don’t have a MacPro1,1 at Hand anymore.
I’d say that unless you have graphics, forget about Yosemite on a MacMini2,1 or Macbook etc….
It does not worth it from my Point of view, and it is quite buggy – login step for instance. Video can’t handle.
MacPro1,1 MacPro2,1 – Xserve (and some 64bits not Officially supported) may be the only Computerswith interest as we can change the Graphic Cards.
You are warned. No one on Macrumors, Tiamo Pikeralpha nor I could be responsible for any data loss. You are warned.
Only try on a dedicated hard drive. remove any drive that you care for. Don’t play with unless you are sure you can loose the content.
You are warned.
Now, Enjoy testing.
I’ll let the download here until Yosemite is fully coded in the “Offical” release on the Download Page.
