    Exclamation How to Create a OS X El Capitan Public Beta Installation USB Using Clover



    Here's a quick guide to create an El Capitan Public Beta Installation USB using Clover based on the Yosemite 10.10 Clover guide. Please note, this guide is not universal, and may not work for all systems.


    STEP 1: Download OS X El Capitan Public Beta

    1. Enroll in the Free Apple Beta Software Program
    2. Open Mac App Store
    3. Log in with your Apple ID
    4. Redeem code
    4. Download OS X El Capitan Public Beta

    The Application Install OS X El Capitan Public Beta will appear in /Applications.


    STEP 2: Prepare Bootable USB Drive
    This step extracts the OS X Installer contents, then installs Clover bootloader to the USB stick.


    1. Insert the USB drive
    2. Open /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility
    3. Highlight the USB drive in left column

    4. Click on the Partition tab
    5. Click Current and choose 1 Partition
    6. Click Options...
    7. Choose GUID Partition Table

    9. Under Format: choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    10. Click Apply then Partition
    11. Open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal
    12. Type the following, enter password and hit enter. This command completely erases the USB, then creates native OS X installer media from the Install OS X El Capitan Public Beta Application.

    Code:
    sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan\ Public\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia  --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan\ Public\ Beta.app --no interaction

    Upon completion, the USB will be renamed Install OS X El Capitan Public Beta.

    13. Download the latest version of Clover from sourceforge
    14. Open Clover package installer
    15. Hit Continue, Continue, Change Install Location...
    16. Choose the USB, now called Install OS X El Capitan Public Beta
    17. Hit Customize and install Clover to the same USB
    18. Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/ and replace default config.plist with attached config.plist *
    19. Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10/ and add FakeSMC.kext **
    20. (Optional) Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10/ and add your ethernet kext
    21. (Optional) Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10/ and add NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
    22. (Optional) Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ remove VBoxHfs-64.efi and add HFSPlus.efi
    23. (Optional) Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ and add DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml

    *See attached config.plist for a working minimal configuration.
    **Latest version attached to post.
