I have upgraded my MBP 5,1 (2,53 GHz) from Snow Leopard to Yosemite. The install went terribly wrong and now neither a fresh Yosemite, nor a fresh Snow Leopard would boot.

Moving away /System/Library/Extensions/NVDAResmanTesla.kext in Yosemite or NVDAResman.kext in Snow Leopard makes the system bootable.

Howver, the graphics under Yosemite are extremely slow and full of artifacts withot this kext, so this is no solution.

These are the graphic cards: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M and 9600M GT.

I am completely lost why this problem can persist fresh installs even of the old OS X version. I have also reset the NVRAM and SMC. What else could the Yosemite install have changed?

I think it's very unlikely that my graphics card went kaputt just at the same time...

Also, the SSD (OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro SSD, 361A13F0) passed all checks. The only other modification to the system is that I don't have an internal DVD drive anymore. The slot is empty.

Any ideas what is causing this and what I can do?

  • Yosemite doesn't allow custom kexts any more, unless you flip a switch - details here cindori.org/trim-enabler-and-yosemite – Tetsujin Oct 31 '14 at 20:59
  • Thank you for the hint. I have not installed any custom kexts as far as I know. What makes you think I did? – Jan Nov 1 '14 at 7:08
  • Only that the largest number of Google hits for that kext are on sites like TonyMac etc.. I was just adding 1 & 1 & maybe getting 3 ;-) – Tetsujin Nov 1 '14 at 7:12

Fresh install from tiger then upgrade until the last OS X supported on your Mac

  • Thanks for the answer. Yosemite supports MBP 2007+ and mine is late 2008. What is the benefit of starting with Tiger instead of starting with either Yosemite or Snow Leopard, like I did? – Jan Nov 1 '14 at 7:06
