This tutorial will assist you to copy the needed kernel and Extra folder to your HDD once you've finished installing OS X.

Note that where it says "Your HDD Name" or "Your USB Name" you must replace this with the partition names. For example, ElCapitanHD or with spaces it is "El Capitan HD"

To begin you will need to boot into your USB installer. Once past the language selection you will see the menu bar. Navigate to Utilities > Terminal

From here, if you don't know the names of your drives type the command below to find them,
Code: Select all
diskutil list
Now that you know the names. Start by navigating to the root of your USB.
Code: Select all
cd /Volumes/"Your USB Name"
Now copy the Extra folder to the HDD.
Code: Select all
cp -R Extra /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"/
Now check to make sure it copied,
Code: Select all
cd /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"
Code: Select all
You should see the Extra folder there now. Now to copy the kernel. We need to go back to the USB drive and copy it to the HDD.
Code: Select all
cd /Volumes/"Your USB Name"/System/Library/Kernels/
Code: Select all
cp -R kernel /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"/System/Library/Kernels/
The kernel should now be in place. If you want you can also copy it to the Extra folder for good measure,
Code: Select all
cd /Volumes/"Your USB Name"/System/Library/Kernels/
Code: Select all
cp -R kernel /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"/Extra/
Now you need to rebuilt the cache. To do this use the following commands,
Code: Select all
rm -f /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"/System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel
Code: Select all
rm -rf /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches
Code: Select all
kextcache -u /Volumes/"Your HDD Name"
You can now reboot. Once booted into OS X install Enoch to your HDD. Make a copy of your Extra folder first as the Enoch instalation may edit some files. You can now boot from the HDD rather than USB.
