OK guys, have here new Mountain Lion 10.8.2 OSX image made for Dell E6400 -> https://www.dropbox....bbbw/0PGV1VtsZh
This is 6GB .dmg disk image with all necessary kexts in S/L/E and E6400 DSDT. There is administrator user "E6400" with password "dell".
This image was tested on 2 different E6400, all works OK ;)

For installation you can use this tutorial http://www.insanelym...20#entry1822031
Hope you like it!

Thanks all for helping with dropbox ;)


As there are bandwidth restriction with dropbox, there is magnet link for torrent:

and magnet link:

Thanks for this image!!! I´m the happy owner of a e6400. I´ve already had a snow leopard installed, and replaced with this... fantastic upgrade. But i have a (little) problem....

I have Win 7 and ML (10.8.2 e6400) in this E6400. it boots from the Windows boot menu, that has 2 boot options. One for Win 7 and the other for OSX.

No problem for booting into Win 7.

If i select the OSX option, it goes to Chameleon bootloader ( 2.0 rc4, that was already installed for Snow Leopard), it starts the boot and when it goes to the white screen, it goes down and reboot.

Tried - v, -f, -x... didn´t boot, with the installed chameleon.

So, i´ve downloaded chameleon (updated one) bootloader iso, burn´ed it in a cd, booted from cd, and in verbose mode, i can boot into ML...odd thing.

What i´m a doing wrong, or what did i not read? :-)

Thanks once again for your fantastic work!!!

I had exactly the same problem.
I plugged the drive to another mac osx and ive loaded again chameleon.
Then I mounted the disk back in notebook and boot mac os.
In ML chose the chameleon wizard uncheck options to hiding the other partitions.
Now Chameleon supports Windows 8 botting me and mac os.

You must boot in single user on chameleon use tab and then write -s. ML boot in console in single user. Type following commands:
Type mount -uw / and press Enter.
Type rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone and press Enter.
Type shutdown -h now and press Enter.

Thanks -- you don't just have the admin password for that user? I managed to switch it to english just by going through menus and guessing.

nevermind that worked fine. Thanks

In this image you have 2 users, one is tomek, other is E6400.
Try to logout, and then to login use second user E6400 with password dell.

Hi guys

Can someone give me a few pointers, I am struggling to get ML running on a Dell E6400.
I have downloaded the 10.8.2 OSX image above, copied that to a Dell d620 running SL, then restored it to the drive I took out of the E6400, problem now is it will not boot when put back in the E6400.
From reading the posts, I believe I need to install a bootloader on the E6400 drive, but it seems all the links are now dead, could someone (KoliberK perhaps who was kind enough to create the image) give me a clue as to which bootloader I need and where it is available from? and how to install it.

I have to say, as yet I have very little MAC knowledge, being a Windows person, I have borrowed the D620 and have to say I am hooked!.

any help much appreciated.

Regards

Tony

Hi Tony,
try Chameleon r2137 from http://onehalfkiller.com/?p=605 or my dropbox https://www.dropbox....bbbw/0PGV1VtsZh

Thanks for the link Koliberk, I doenloaded it from your dropbox. i'll try it this evening when I get home.

Am I correct in thinking I connect the E6400 drive attached to the D620 USB via a sata / usb adapter.
Then, run Chameleon on the D620 and perform the operations on the E6400 ML drive atttached to the USB?
Finally, remove the USB / sata adapter and put the drive back in the E6400 and it should boot ML?

Thanks again
Regards
Tony

Guess I have done something wrong somewhere, I have done what I noted above, when the drive is put back in the E6400 (80GB sata drive), when it tries to boot I get

boot0: GPT
boot0: test
boot0: test
boot0: done
the cursor is flashing but nothing further happens, so I will format the drive and restore the image again using Disk Utility and try again.

Progress...., repeating the above procedure, seems to have had some effect, the drive when put back in the E6400, now starts to boot, I see the bootloader screen, then after about 5 seconds it crashes, and restarts, this crash / restart loop continues indefinately.

If I press spacebar when the bootloader screen is visible, then type -v, I get screen fulls of text scrolling up the screen, but it still crashes and restarts, what else can I try? is it possible to find what caused the crash?

Finally got it running, the boot / reboot issue seemed to have been caused by the E6400 having a WWAN card inside, I removed the WWAN card, and it booted up fine.

KoliberK, did you have any problem with the screen going completely white after a set time, I have done a bit of testing and it is when the 'energy saver' comes in, if I set it to say 1 minute, then after 1 minute of no computer use, I get a completely bright white screen until I hit a key.
The E6400 I have is an intel graphics version if that makes any difference?

Hi, I know this thread is a little old, but does anyone still have the 64-bit Kexts from last year? I'm running snow leopard and those Kexts and Extra package from the OP seem to be the only ones that work for me, but I lost them when upgrading (sidegrading, really) to OSX Latitude EDPs. When I click on the link in the OP to download the Kexts, it just redirects me to the forum main page.
