Since this is my first Guide, I will try To be the most helpfull for you. Just Tell me if I am not Clear or I say something wrong.
I have got a Dell Latitude E6400 but since E6500 are pretty the same than E6400, it may work.
I Hope this Will Help you.
Kexts may Also Work for no Retail Version Like Kalyway or iDeneb, use KextHelper to install Them.
Before to Begin:
I will say to save your data with for example Ghost, since All will be erase for re-partionning.
Pick up an USB Keyboard and Mouse which will be helpfull during the Installation.
In the BIOS switch to "AHCI" and not "IRRT" in SATA Operation.
Press F12 during POST for choosing to boot from CD or other media.
To make Ghost working you might switch to "ATA" in SATA Operation, depending on wwhich version of Ghost you have.
I - Install MAC OS X Retail with the Boot-132 CD
- Use a Boot-132 CD to be able to Launch the Install of MAC OS X from the DVD this one might be ok : http://www.mediafire.com/?m3eyyutptgf
- Install your MAC OS X Retail following this Guide by MACinized : http://forum.insanel...howtopic=128274
- Use these KEXTs for 10.5.5 : KEXTs_10-5-5_v01.zip
Default Partition scheme (MBR) from Dell was:
1 - Primary - FAT (Hidden) - Dell Tools for Support
2 - Primary - NTFS - Windows XP
- Before too Install OS X From I
- Resize your partition (with for example: Acronis Partition Expert) where is installed Win XP or Vista to what you want, for Example 15 Go for XP.
- Change/Copy(for security) the line in boot.ini (Win XP) if you planned to change the order of the Partitions.
If You have kept the first Partition from Dell so your boot.ini may contain that
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professionnel" [i]options[/i]
If You planned to make the Win XP Partition the first Partition so Boot.ini line will be:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professionnel" [i]options[/i]
If you have changed the Boot.ini file, restart in order to try it, if you got problem just restart with the Win XP CD choose Repair and type bootcfg /repair.
- Save your Disk (with for exmaple: Ghost)
- Install MAC OS X, like in I, but don't use all the Space for Macintosh (ex: 25 Go)
Macintosh (which contains OS X) and MacLoader (which contains BootLoader) are the 2 Partitions name coming from the MACinized Guide
- Note the Size in the Disk Utility of MacLoader and Macintosh
- Save Partitions MacLoader and Macintosh
- Restore the Disk with the Save made in Step 4.
- Create the 2 Partitions MacLoader and Macintosh (Primary), the same size or if not possible, Larger (Size noted in Step 6), if Size is Smaller you will not be able to restore Partition in Ghost.
- Restore the Partitions
- Boot with the Boot-132 CD to boot the Macintosh Partition, and make the MacLoader Partition active.
diskutil list (take note of the "IDENTIFIERs") sudo fdisk –e /dev/rdiskX (where X is the appropriate disk identifier) f 2 (where 2 is the partition number of MacLoader) w y q
- Restart without the Boot-132 CD, you may be in OS X
- If you prefer to keep the BootLoader of Windows just use the chain0 Method
