I tested the driver and it resulted into losing the native resolution. I think you should stick to the original files provided by Doriean. And install only the intel gmax3100fb kext! With the dsdt file of course.

Hey There I Use The 10.6.2 But Either One Is Fine. Hope That Helps And If You Have Any Other Questions Feel Free To Ask.

P.s I Would Just Go Pay The $29 At The Apple Store And Buy Snow Leopard, Just Make Sure To Buy The Release That Came Out In
November 2009 Thats The 10.6.2 Im Using.

You write:

In The ( Dell1545SnowLeopard ) Folder, Navagate To The ( GMA4500 Native Resolution ) Folder And Drag And Drop Both The AppleGMAX3100.kext And The APPLE GMAX3100FB.kext Into Kext Utility.


Thats for the Intel Graphic. But in Your System are the Ati. Or i missunderstand something? I have the 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD4330 in my System

Okay so thanks to charlesterror's suggestion of modifying the com.apple.Boot.plist I now have native resolution. Make sure you repair permissions after this step!

Download the modified com.apple.Boot.plist here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Z8QRGI4Q

Navigate to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/

Delete the com.apple.Boot.plist, and copy the one from the download into this folder

Repair permissions, on reboot you will have native resolution and it will recognize your video kexts.


How i do repair permissions? Thanks

Doriean asked for Info.plist to modify ATI4500Controller.kext and ATIRadeonX2000.kext to get QE to work with Radeon 4330 version of Inspirion 1545.

They are attached. They only work in 10.6.2
Attached File(s)
ATI4500Controller.Info.plist.zip ( 826bytes ) Number of downloads: 45
ATIRadeonX2000.Info.plist.zip ( 1.17K ) Number of downloads: 34


I have read, how to Install. But can i Install this direct on my running System? I have all run on my Dell, but the last one i need, is the grafik.

to repair, just open up your disk utility, click on your snow leopard partition and you should see an option somewhere on the screen to repair disk permissions

Greetings one and all. I'm a self-taught techie who heard about this weird "hackintosh osx86" thing a few months ago. My first computer purchase was an Apple *** back in 19** so, yes, I AM an old fart. Please bear with me.

I bought a Dell 1545, 3 months ago. According to the HCL, I was out of luck, but I decided to try anyway.

I chose this install method as I lack ready access to a Mac or Hac and I really wanted to use the retail SL DVD. To my absolute shock, it actually worked - somewhat. I'm hoping some of you hotshots can give me a little guidance. Here's how it went.

DELL 1545
Intel Mobile Series 4 chipset
2.10 ghz Pentium Dual-Core 4300
500G hard drive
4G ram
IDT High Definition Audio
Creative Integrated 1.3 meg webcam


:wacko: Hey Everbody, I'm Going To Keep This As Simple As Possible...

FYI, This Is Only For The Dell Inspiron 1545. Lets Begin!

Please Start by Downloading The Following File:

*SNIPPED download series* DONE

Once You Have The rar File, Extract The Folder ( Dell1545SnowLeopard ) To Your Desktop. - DONE

Then Extract The SL boot132.iso And Burn It To A Cd Using Your Favorite Iso Software. - DONE

Please Make Sure You Have Formated Your Hard Drive To Ntfs/Fat32 Before We Begin. - Well, why do it simple. Let's see, new computer, new Wndows 7, new Snow Leopard and new Ubuntu distro. TRIPLE BOOT!

Now Insert Your Boot321 cd And, Depending On Your Bios, Hit Either ( Esc or F2 ) To Boot From Your Cd Drive. DONE

Once The Boot Cd Has Loaded, Eject It, Insert Your Retail Snow Leopard Install Disk, And Hit F5 ( Note= If Your Disk Wasn't Reconized The First Time Hit F5 Again ). DONE

You Should See Some Scrolling, And Then Mac OS X Snow Leopard Installation Will Begin. DONE

After You Choose Your Language, Choose Utilities From The Above Toolbar, Then Choose Disk Utility. DONE

Used the SL disk utilities to erase the entire drive, GUID formatting, created 3 partitions, OSX formatted HFS, Windows 7 formatted NTFS and the remainder as Free Space for Ubuntu sometime later.

*SNIPPED partitioning, formatting and sl132boot instructions*

Mac OS X Will Now Start Installing Mac OS X Snow Leopard On Your Dell Inspiron 1545. DONE

Once Installation Has Finshed, Click Restart. DONE

Once Your Computer Restarts, You Will See Nothing. DONT PANIC -- I Repeat, DONT PANIC ! Everything is Ok.

Eject Your Snow Leopard dvd, Replace It With The Boot321 Cd, And Power Off Your Compter. DONE

Now Restart Your Computer And Again Boot Your Boot321 Cd By Choosing F2. DONE

Once The Boot Cd Has Loaded You Will See Your Mac OS X Snow Leopard Icon. Click On It To Load Your Brand New Snow Leopard Operating System. DONE (also DISPLAYED all unused partitions)

After All This, When You Are At Your Mac OS X SL Desktop, You Will Now Notice Your Wireless, Audio And Other Things Are Not Working. This Is A Problem That Can Be Fixed By Following The Instructions Below:

Let's just check first
Airport Wireless - working no problems.
Ethernet - also working no problems.
Audio - NOTHING. Non-functional.
Video - works halfway. I can see flash video but I cannot hear a thing. DVD gives me "A valid video device could not be found for playback. [-70017]
Trackpad - working no problems.
Webcam - works halfway. Photo Booth will allow me to take pics but not vids.
Display - only one display option the 1024 X 768. NOT optimal.


Let's Begin By Transfering The ( Dell1545SnowLeopad ) Folder To Our New Snow Leopard Desktop. ( Via Usb Or Sd Card ) DONE

Once This Is Done, Open The Folder And Drag Kext Utility To The Desktop. DONE

We Will Now Begin To Fix All Your Driver/Kext Problems (Your Wireless/Audio/Graphics Issues). OKAY - How?

From Here, You Will Install All The Kext Files From The Extensions folder, Located In The (Dell1545SnowLeopard ) Folder, COOL, but...?

Once That's Done, You Will Need To Install A Bootloader. On Your Desktop You Should See Your SL Boot Cd. Double Click To Open It, Go To The Post-Install Folder, And Inside the Folder. Double Click On Chameleon 2 RC3 To Install Your Bootloader. WAIT, WHAT?

So HERE is where I stopped. The instructions are above but may as well be written in Mandarin given my understanding. The README files weren't especially illuminating. Did I miss a step somewhere? HOW do I install Kext files?

So, at present, I've got a partially working system. Can anyone please explain in detail HOW TO INSTALL KEXT FILES using this method? I've applied the updates and now have SL 10.6.2 running. Thank you in advance and keep up the fine work.

*SNIPPED - Let's try to solve one issue at a time.*



Wait and see if you need any of the kexts after install this will prevent alot problems.
sorry and thanks.

When You Have Finshed Installing Your Bootloader, Eject The Boot Cd And Restart Your Computer.

When You Start Your Computer, The Bootloader Will Ask You Which O.S You Want To Load. You Are Not Dual Booting! Choose The Only O.s Thats Available, Mac OS X.

Now That That's Done We Only Have Three Things Left To Do:

In The ( Dell1545SnowLeopard ) Folder, Navagate To The ( GMA4500 Native Resolution ) Folder And Drag And Drop Both The AppleGMAX3100.kext And The APPLE GMAX3100FB.kext Into Kext Utility.

Once Done Copy The DSDT.aml To The Root Of Your Hard Drive And Restart.

And There You Go!

If The 1366 X 768 Didn't Work For You Try Again ( It Took Me Three Times To GeT It To Work ).

Thats It... If You Have Any Questions, Feel Free To Leave A Comment And I Will Try To Help You Out As Best As I Can.

Thanks So Much For Everything.

Wait and see if you need any of the kexts after install this will prevent alot problems.
