Hi guys and girls

This is a work in progress!! *UPDATE should be done now*

read the full guide before doing anything to your dell latitude c640

Whats needed

Dell Latitude C640 (Mods: 1.5GB Ram, DVD/CD-RW rom drive Broadcom wifi "BCM4318")

Optional - 2.5" Caddy and a working mac/hackintosh with 3 usb ports

reason for this is either "sometimes" the installer packages of chameleon can crash or fail to install for whatever reason so this might be an option <- this is after changing perms* on the extra's folder too

Bios settings before install completely unknown (sorry)

iDeneb 1.6 Lite Edition 10.5.8
booted with (-x -f -F -v)

took a while to boot however i managed, in places it seemed to hang but then randomly it booted with no external screen

Chose kexts:
chameleon v2
smbios resolver <- later removed via windows install
iDeneb Main system
Kernel Qoopz <- later removed via windows install
APCIFix <- later later over written
Apple Decrypt
dsdt patcher
Time Machine fix
Open Halt restart fix
apple ps2 old
about this mac fix
system profiler fix
appletymcedriver fix
appleHDA 10.5.6 <- later removed
Firewire remove
iopciafamily fix
iousbfamily fix
seat belt fix <- later removed/replaced
mouse lag fix
apple azalia audio <- later removed
voodoohda <- later removed
ICHx Fix
system management ALL + voodoo battery

All RTL fixes and then for wifi broadcom fix for me


The install took me aegis, and if i had not every now and then moved or clicked the mouse it appeared to hang or not move so i moved the mouse every once and a while. but when i got the succsessfull image i rebooted and installed XP WITHOUT BOOTING BACK TO THE MAC Partition!!!.

Then got all the drivers for xp etc, and mac drive, Winrar and notepad++ to help with modding tools then i moved the new mach_kernel over and moved these kexts's (see osx86.net link for all files)

- gave me yeller text but still booted tho, also after i removed it, my mouse / trackpad still worked

when you move these files you MUST replace them with something, which is given in the links

and after adding the chameleon by niresh with kernel cache support (r2165) i had to also remove

smbiosresolver.kexts - this tho you can only do when your on your desktop or once you've installed windows and mac drive.

and in extra/modules - this tho you can only do again with windows when your on your desktop aka windows
ACPI Codec.dylib

So 7 kexts that you dont want in there for now and as you removed the firewire 5 firewire kexts as stated i moved them all to the other partition to avoid problems

Bios settings after everything

Page 1 ignore
Page 2 boot from internal hdd then CD dvd rom drive
Page 3 boot post Thorough bot speed 2.20GH'z boot msg enabled Lan enabled dockin disabled docking irq optimized uni connect disabled
Page 5 ignore
Page 4 serial port disabled infared disabled parallel mode disabled USB Legacy Enabled pointing device touchpad primary video system minipci status enabled
Page 6 user choice but i had speedstep enabled and max performance x2 on power an battery
Page 7 ignore
save and exit then press Ctrl + Alt + Delete (otherwise it boots i believe on old settings)

Not possible with out THEO as seen here http://www.insanelym...buffer-headers/

i cannot remember where i got my mach_kernel From

all kexts including mach_kernel and chameleon

Niresh12495-Extra-r2165.mpkg.zip <- install first before the other chameleon

Chameleon-2.2svn-r2187.rar <- rar file windows needed

DMG KP FIX (kext to S.L.E).zip <- seatbelt.kext

extract to S.L.E.zip <- AppleAC97Audio.kext, AppleACPIButtons.kext, AppleACPIEC.kext, AppleACPILPC.kext, AppleACPIPCI.kext, AppleACPIPlatform.kext, AppleAPIC.kext

install_flash_player_10_osx.rar <- helps test wifi sound etc (if your browser is working)

mach_kernel.zip <- from unknown
<- made by unknown

nScript (optional to test sound mpkg installer).zip <- should help test sound

remove and back these up.zip <- AppleACPIPlatform.kext, AppleAPIC.kext, AppleEFIRuntime.kext, SMBIOSResolver.kext, VoodooPower.kext AND FireWire Remove is : IOFireWireAVC.kext, IOFireWireFamily.kext, IOFireWireIP.kext, IOFireWireSBP2.kext, IOFireWireSerialBusProtocolTransport.kext AND from extra/Moduals : ACPICodec.dylib, KernelPatcher.dylib
