Clover route is by far the better method in general, Ive not heard of many problems on this model with the bios mod (in both cases the bios is modified anyway), The links will be updated soon I'm sure, or somebody who has already downloaded will upload again.

follow post #1 links for bios mod, pre install and post install all seem live still.

Hi, 

 

I've been following the updates here and I've just updated my bios with the latest custom mod

 

I've been using chameleon and Mavericks alongside Windows 8 & my Data storage partition. 

 

My HDD is MBR and not GPT I don't want to format my entire HDD is there any work around to using the clover install on MBR disk?

 

The screenshot below shows how my system is configured.

Okay, so I seriously need help, I'm having trouble with my wifi. Everything works just fine except for the wifi, and I'm tired of using my ethernet cable. It's driving my family nuts. 

 

I obviously have a Dell Inspiron N5110 that I've had since December of 2011.

 

I successfully installed Yosemite on my computer and updated it to Developer Preview 7. A while back, I ordered a Dell Wireless 1702 card off of Amazon, and it is Atheros AR5B95, which I heard was compatible.  I installed it onto my computer, and found a kext off the internet for it. However, it will not identify ANY network. I cannot set up wifi manually, and it will just keep saying it is searching for a network. The icon appears on my menu bar is there, but again no networks will detect.

 

Did I put it in wrong? Do I need to re-plug in the antenna cables? What kext did you use for your wifi to work? What should I do? Please help me, I have researched a lot and nothing has worked so far. 

 

Screenshots are attached in the links.

I followed the main guide ( #1 Bios and Pre install and #2 Post install ) and i booted up and got past Apple Screen but stuck at mouse spinning screen and it would not go any further

 

Both OS X 10.9.4 and OS X 10.10

 

THat's why i want to try the UEFI Clover in #5 but links are dead except for the new bios mod

I think you did not plug in back the antenna cables ( both white and black ) and it's mandatory to make wireless connectivity work

Yeah I plugged them back in, I was wondering if the colors mattered if they went in a certain order, or if I didn't plug them in all of the way. I'll try that later today.

post #1  supersedes post 5# really now, as its UEFI clover guide, but using Yosemite, no reason why it won't work with Mavericks as well, just follow the guide but using Mav install.app rather than Yosemite.

 

 boot with -v flag to see why its stopping, post a photo see if anyone can help.

I don't think so.

 

I know on genuine UEFI bios windows 8 runs UEFI too, much better, but have a read back a few pages and see if you will benefit from it or not, I think I read about some issues with windows UEFI, but it may be all sorted out now.

So I did go ahead and tried to reinstall the wifi card, I also made sure the antenna cables were secure and were not loose. This did not fix the problem, I still have the same exact issue. Did I still do something wrong? What else could it have been?

correct dsdt from page 1 to match your spec.

 

 

you may need to replace the kext with the original at the same time, can be extracted from install.app

 

also try to cycle the wifi card, pressing the wifi button and waiting.

Thanks!

This FILE is Florin9doi's UEFI boot bios with unhidden menu patch and replaced PXE module with Plop Boot Manager
 
Bonus:
For permanently disable NVIDIA card need boot into bios and go to the chipset tab. Then press System Agent (SA) Configuration => Graphics Configuration  and change Primary Display from SG to IGFX.

I test it, but you do so at your own risk!
