    How to Backup and Remove Chimera and any Related Files

    If you've tested and made sure you can boot using Clover, prepare for OS X El Capitan by backing up and removing your existing bootloader and extra files. This is an optional step for UEFI users- Clover and Chimera can co-exist on most UEFI-capable systems by choosing UEFI or Legacy mode for the drive at boot time.

    Before you begin, we strongly recommend performing a full backup of your existing system using Carbon Copy Cloner. By doing this, you can always go back to your working OS X Yosemite installation.

    1. Boot OS X Yosemite
    2. Create a folder on Desktop called Yosemite Files
    3. Navigate to the root of your system drive
    4. Drag /Extra folder into Yosemite Files
    5. Delete /Extra folder
    6. Navigate to /System/Library/Extensions/
    7. Copy any additional kexts installed by MultiBeast into Yosemite Files. These include:

    /System/Library/Extensions/AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/AHCI_Intel_Generic_SATA.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/ALXEthernet.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIGB.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelE1000e.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/AtherosE2200Ethernet
    /System/Library/Extensions/AtherosL1cEthernet.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/EvOreboot.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/GenericUSBXHCI.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/RealtekRTL8111.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/RealtekRTL81xx.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooHDA.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext
    /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooTSCSync.kext

    8. Delete these kexts from /System/Library/Extensions or copy them to /Library/Extensions/.
