I am using myHack, no special kext in extra folder with 10.9 Mavericks installer. I have to boot with npci=0x3000.

If you're using myHack, copy the kexts to /E/E then run myFix (quick). Basically you need the good old revised IOATAFamily kext.

ok, so i made a new 10.9 usb installer with myhack and then added the kexts from the zip above and ran the quick fix, but i still only get the USB visible once i get to the installer?

You should not keep posting about the Optiplex 745 in a 755 thread. If you search the Net, you'll probably find your answers as this issue has long been reported and answered to.

I would like to install Mac on my Dell 755 !!! What bootloader do I need?

I can't get any of the latest loaders on USB, to boot.

I have Yosemite installed on Toshiba Laptop. Any help would be great !!

 Dell 755 has HDMI, so I use my 50" Vizio UHD 4K TV as a Monitor.

Still looking for a boot-loader. The latest clover windows Disk utility boots but doesn't show the drive.

There is no problems with current boot loaders (Chameleon and Clover) and Opriplexes 755. It's all about patches you use. 

 

For:

- El Capitan

http://www.insanelym...-790/?p=2168485

 

- Yosemite

http://www.insanelym...uide/?p=2147586

 

use these kexts 

Attached File  Yosemite 755 Kexts.zip   562.26KB   14 downloads

and set SATA controller in BIOS to ATA or Legacy 

 

- Mavericks

Attached File  Mavericks 755 Kexts.zip   1009.15KB   6 downloads

 

- Mountain Lion

is very straightforward installation, just use FakeSMC, IntelE1000e and VoodooHDA from any of the two attachments.

 

Best of luck!
