My XPS is recognized as "Mac" on Model Name and "XPS M1330" on Model Identifier not as "Mac" and "macpro3,1" like others.

I don't know where the name is set, I am using vanilla AppleACPIPlatform.kext also :P

Not sure but ...
I think that in your case Machine model Data entries are from DMI Bios records
and have priority before Model Identifier stored in AppleSMBIOSEFI.kext.

In my case i did edition of those records and wrote there
model: iMac7,1 witch gave me iMac7,1 not MacPro3,1
Same Story is serial number
Attached File  index.png   27.07KB   498 downloads

To edit DMI DATA i used small app called DMICFG

Recently figured tiny issue:
(Sometimes) After restart system does not loading monitor calibration profile
and keyboard layout (modifier keys) are reverted to default state.

MacPro3,1 are stored in the kernel, and not in the SMBIOS.

If you are using vanilla kernel, then that's why you see your model identifier as Dell and not Mac Pro.

So, what is the best way to change the Model Name, ID and serial Number?
And how to do it?

If you are running with the ToH kernel, just modify the AppleSMBIOSEFI.cpp

If you modified something yes, but open the Project on Xcode and hit the Build button, it will compile the whole thing and create the new kext.

My CPU is shown as 2 GHz Unknown (I have Celeron 440), is there a way to fix it via AppleSMBIOSEFI when using vanilla kernel?

I have opened the 10.5.3 combo update with pacifist 2.5.2 and cannot find a directory called build? I tried to extract the whole update and it gives an error.

nah man, those directions are for finding the built AppleSMBIOSEFI.kext amongst all the other source stuff in this threads download zip. the vanilla AppleSMBIOS.kext you're looking for is inside the 10.5.3 combo update, in the same directory it is on your hard disk, system/library/extentions

Comes up instantly here so there may be something local to your machine involved in the problem.

Hi, working but a new app (Squeeze 5) crashes.

It wants to read an serial (HW) .

I found out that systemprofiler didnt show serial in last line of HW Info.

How can i add an serial in EFI strings or have i do some more (network kexts?!)

Thanks

Screenshoot working below (No serial number shown)
