Sous Mac OS El Capitan, Dark Boot peut quand même marcher mais il faut auparavant avoir désactivé le SIP
On Mac OS El Capitan, Dark Boot can still walk but must have previously disabled the SIP

After installing Dark Boot on 10.10.3, I can not boot into Yosemite any more. My disk does not show up when I restart holding the option key down, only the 10.10.3 recovery partition shows up. I do not know what to do to uninstall this software.
