    Yeah - it tells that it's not a older, unsupported Mac and this is the wrong Thread for him .... :rolleyes:


    Mac's supported by Yosemite and therefore also by El Capitan: http://www.apple.com/osx/how-to-upgrade/

    That's obviously Photoshopped. According to the Gran Diccionario Oxford Español-Inglés Inglés Español (which is included in Yosemite), "cabrón" can mean several things, such as son of a b*tch, bastard, swine, cuckold, et cetera. I understand that it can also refer to a ram.

    Having the same issue as atvusr, my iMac 6,1 with 7300gt and EFI32 gets stuck at the welcome screen. It somehow disabled my wired mouse temporarily during early boot stages.

    This will get the current developer release installed, BUT -

    "Apple engineers have confirmed that the nvram boot-args command option will not be in the shipping release of El Capitan, and may be removed from developer betas before the release."

    The boot-args command will probably removed from the release version - but there's a new 'Security Configuration' in the Utilities menu of the Installer. The checkbox 'Enforce System Integrity Protection' can be switched on/off, but it doesn't work properly at the moment. I think it's too early yet and we have to see how the whole Security-thing turns out ....

    I've updated the OSX 10.11 DB1 to DB2 on a supported Mac via App-Store, changed both Boot.efi and tried to run this via USB-Thumdrive on a unsupported MBP2,2. Unfortunately it doesn't work properly. It boots, until two third of the progress bar, but then it stops with the 'No Entry' sign. While the transfer from a supported Mac to the MBP2,2 has always worked for OSX 10.10 Yosemite since the Public Beta, this method doesn't work at the moment neither for OSX 10.11 DB1 nor DB2.

    Edit: It must have something to do with USB - if the transferred OSX 10.11 runs from a SSD, connected via eSATA (ExpressCard34) then it boots completely, but gets stuck on the Desktop, because the internal Keyboard/Trackpad or a external USB-KB/Mouse don't work. With a patched Installer it gets stuck on the OSX Welcome-screen ....

    Due to severe weather that occurred in my area resulting in a power outage, OSXE 1.3 Beta 2 has been delayed to tomorrow. Apologies to the inconvenience.

    Of course, but you need to answer the most difficult question. Will you be willing to part $99 (or eqv) for this pleasure?
    I would wait until the public beta in this case.

    It is best to wait until the Public Beta in July. We should have a working version of OSXE and guide by then.

    OS X Extractor 1.3 Beta 2 and MacPostFactor 1.0 (not 0.3 nor 0.2b2 as suggested by a tester) will be released later today. OSXE 1.3b2 will address the boot.efi issue. MPF may not support OS X El Capitan yet.
