I'd like to ask for some help with the installation of OS X 10.11.6 on a Dell latitude E5430.
The problem is, that I can't get to the installation screen.
More precisely, when I get there the screen glitches out so I can't even start the installation. After connecting the laptop to an external monitor the install screen appears with a cursor but the screen is still completely unreadable...
I'm not an expert but I think the problem is somewhere in the video support... So I've tried several guides and fixes but none of them worked for me. (I managed to get past a missing IOBluetooth panic by using a patched dsdt)
With a combination of different config settings, dsdts and kexts I managed to reach the installation screen but only without any input at all... After fixing the input problem the screen was gone again...
Do you have any similar experience? Please help if you have any idea for a solution!
Thank you in advance,

I have 6430 with the same CPU, it is IvyBridge. Same screen.

The graphics works with Inject->intel=YES


I also have Nvidia NVS5200M. It is not working, so I set Optimus=Enable in BIOS. Yes, enable!



Looking your config I notice you did the same, but

InjectEDID=YES is obsolete

you have to write



And I set DualLink=1

DualLink is not normally required on low-res LCD; only on high res models (1600x900 and above) with which you must also use layout-id 0x01660004.


Use MacBookPro9,2 SMBIOS, not MBP8,1 which is SandyBridge/HD3000...


Here's your revised DSDT where _DSM method of Device (IGPU) has been modified as follows:

  1. layout-id changed from hires 01660004 to lores 01660003
  2. Dualink changed from 1 to 0

Give that a try.

And here's a revised Clover config.plist because yours was quite messy and erroneous (devices, patches, SMBIOS, etc.).
