I have the newest N5110 Core i7, with A09 Dell BIOS.
I am beginning to believe that I will never get a working bootloader on this machine. Startup goes very quickly to 0MB NVIDIA GT525m, and then freeze, or black screen freeze (no HDD activity after that).
Somewhere I read that BIOS will not boot from GUID partition, so I did an MBR install (after patching OSInstall etc.) but that had an identical result.
I have tried many different guides, but if someone with working Core i7 N5110, could help me with necessary bootloader installer, kexts and dsdt.aml and smbios.plist, and org.chameleon.Boot.plist, I would be very grateful indeed. I have had 10.6.7 installed and booting off CD bootloader, but vital startup kexts get overridden, and muck everything up.
Pls help, I would like to get this booting off HDD!
OK, I have managed to install N*resh Lion 10.7.2 on my N5110 Core i7 (2.2GHz)
Due to time constraints, I have not had time to thoroughly test it. I have working Intel HD Graphics 3000 - 384MB, external USB WiFi (thanks to some help), Keyboard/Touchpad (no multitouch at all), USB 3.0 works (WiFi dongle needs to be in USB 2.0 slot tho?).
What I have discovered is that non of the DSDT files I have stored, actually work, and if I use the long device-properties in org.chameleon.Boot.plist, the graphics fall over on startup.
I am not an expert at Lion, and an absolute beginner at Intel HD Graphics, but I need some help getting sound/battery-power management, and sleep working. Also, I would love a PS2 trackpad driver that works with the control panel. Oh, and working brightness.
Cheers, and many thanks.
at boot write "GraphicsEnabler=No" because the system hang up at boot with "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" and Apple Dos Not Support Optimus Driver until now so we still back to Integrated Graphic
about battery install voodoobattery
about sound install voodooHda 2.7.3 OR give me your DSDT to make some audio hack and remove voodoohda replace it with applehda
about brightness works good go system preferences - display and change it
about trackpad panel don't work with alps dell touchpad so the only thing is to remove voodoops2controller.kext from S*/L*/E* and install this kext http://jumbofiles.com/lxeb124nt5l9
please amiine would your custom DSDT and kexts work for my n7110, (the 17'' version of the n5110) i7 2670QM , intel HD Graphics, GT 525, cause i cant get my own custom DSDT winth DSDTSE that gaves me always 201 errors when compiling to get my HD 3000 working?
try it i think it work and send me your dsdt.aml to compile it
I have installed 10.7.3 on my Dell Inspiron N 4110 using U.B/M.B method, and it's running great with sound, wifi etc. Only issue is that it does not reboot or shutdown. But I can do both from the command mode. The graphical mode does not do this. I tried DSDT patch from here but after doing that now the shutdown makes the system reboot. This reboot happens without the lights on the power switch or the other three keys blinking..
How can I have normal reboot and shutdown??
try to remove evoreboot and you have to install speed stepper for lion http://www.insanelym...opic=258611�and
go to system preferences - EnergySaver - check all cases uncheked
or try this DSDT
