Yosemite on Intel NUC

Please note that this article is for educational and learning purposes only. So take it for what it’s worth. There are so many articles out there on how to install ML, Mavericks, Yosemite, etc. on the Intel NUC. I will describe here my own personal attempt. Your mileage varies.

First, everyone relies on Unibeast and Multibeast from tonymacx86. So why not us?

Second, when booting from the USB thumb drive be sure to add the following string:

IGPEnabler=yes IGPlatformID=0166000

Finally, after you’ve installed Yosemite and do your Multibeast EasyBeast thingie (more on my configuraton later), you’ll need to append to /Extra/org.chameleon.boot.plist


It’s not too clear to me that the Apple Thunderbolt monitor is stable with the Intel NUC. For the moment, my NUC is useful at all.
