This will allow the unsigned drivers to be loaded. Unfortunately, it allows ANY unsigned drivers to load, including potentially malicious files; so use with the appropriate caution.

Thanks for the update, Dave. I have downloaded Yosemite (I *still*
pronounce it in my head as "yos-ah-mite" from my childhood watching
Looney Tunes) but not yet installed it. I have two Macs and hope to
finish this up this weekend. My wife doesn't have anything she connects
to hers other than a backup drive and her mouse. Mine, on the other
hand, has my GearMo USB-to-serial adapter, my EMU-0204, and an MX518
mouse. So, my question is, how will I know when the drivers *are*
updated and how do I 'undo' that command later? Just type "...mode=0?"

On another note, if you use CrossOver to run any Windows apps for which
there is no alternative, version 14.0.0 allows you to launch each app
from CrossOver itself. It basically has its own finder window and you
run the app from there.

Until manufacturers get around to releasing new signed drivers for OS
X, your device drivers will not load after upgrading to Yosemite. In
sudo nvram boot-args=“kext-dev-mode=1”
<enter your password when requested>
sudo reboot
This will allow the unsigned drivers to be loaded. Unfortunately, it
allows ANY unsigned drivers to load, including potentially malicious
files; so use with the appropriate caution.

If you didn't manually install drivers, then it should not be an issue as
they're included with OS X, and thus you don't need to do anything. Your
mouse should be perfectly fine. I'm not certain about the USB-Serial or EMU
devices. If you did manually install drivers, then you'll have to check
with the manufacturers to know when they update their drivers.

Once you get updated drivers; simply run the same command with
“kext-dev-mode=0”.

Quick question on the general subject: Did you download Yosemite from App Store? If so did it just download and ask you when to install it, I was concerned that it might download and start the install without my permission.

It installs it in the Applications Folder, named Install OS X Yosemite.app.

If you have more than one computer you’re going to upgrade, copy it off (flash drive perhaps) as it will disappear after the install. This way you won’t have to download 5G too often and kill your download limits. I’ve installed it on two macs so far
 and with Dave’s hint on drivers have had zero problems.

Yep. I sent my wife to the store to get a new 16 or 32 GB thumb drive to
do just that. :) Yosemite is downloaded just waiting on the drive. I
*think* once you install it, the OS deletes it from the computer. I
could be wrong, but I think that's what I read.

I'm sure there are other methods, but there is a set of instructions on
how to get Yosemite to the thumb drive available from lifehacker.com.

There ARE instructions out there as you said, but I like the KISS principle. I just copied from my App folder to the thumb drive (it fit on an 8G), and then back to the App directory on another computer. I’ve done the fancy way before, but I figured why bother. And you are right, when you install it, it’s gone from the app folder, but since I copied it from the thumb drive, (and then ejected it) it stays on the thumb drive.

If I needed to boot off the thumb drive that would be different, but my Mavericks was fine, so I did it the easy way.
