In Topic: Need help installing mavericks or yosemite DP1 on Dell OptiPlex 755

13 July 2014 - 04:58 PM

Optiplex 755 does support Mavericks afaik (and therefore Yosemite should be supported too), but I'm not sure your dual-core Pentium E2160 is actually natively supported by OS X kernel. It really is a low specs, low performance, oldish CPU these days... Check with tools such as CPUID if it embeds SSSE3 technology. If not, no joy...


As you probably know, the integrated desktop GMA 3100 is totally unsupported by Apple's OS but the nVidia Geforce 8400GS is.


There are guides and a bootpack at OSXLatitude, so I suggest you have a look there but, again, you may find that your CPU is not supported, in which case, you could either upgrade to a Core2Duo model or consider Bronya's AMD kernels (they do work).


PS: I guess you meant Q35 (ICH9DO) chipset, not Q32...



Hi Herve, 


Good to speak to you after long time as I was all away from hackintoshing nearly 6months and I'm back now. Thanks for your reply and I've checked with CPUID and can confirm that SSSE3 is supported feature of E2160. And also yes you're right about the chipset which is Q35 Express chipset, not Q32.


Good news for me is I've installed 10.8.2 using myhack and its my first myhack try and I succeded. But I've a small guilty feeling of myhack as I don't know what exactly the myhack does while creating USB installer and somewhere I feel like its similar tool like tmac. I would be really happy if anyone could explain that myhack is not a similar tool compared to any other hackintosh tool that are available on internet. And also I've read that many systems have been successful using myhack and I really appreciate myhack for that. I'm really sorry I'm new to this myhack and today I'm going to go with vanilla install which is my all time favourite with many systems I've installed so far.


By the way, herve, how is your hackintoshing going any new projects upcoming from you.


Many Thanks :)

Hi There,

I wanted to install OSX Maverick on my Laptop.

I Have a Lenovo G410 which have the following Specs:


Intel Core i5 4200M

Intel® HD Graphics 4600
Is it Possible?
and where should i start?



Hi andvoider,


Welcome to insanelymac. Yes Lenovo G410 with i5 4200M and HD 4600 have latest hardware and will support mavericks installation. But make sure you check other hardware devices that comes with G410 are compatible with mavericks. Please do full research about your hardware compatibility with the version of OSX you would like to go with before you decide to do hackintoshing. 


Once you have done your research part then you can either start from the guide above or If you feel difficulty in using the above guide then you better follow the guide from below link.




Do remember you must have plenty of time and patience before you start your hackintosh project.


Happy Hackintoshing :)

In Topic: AppleHDA Patch Requests.

Hi mirone :)


I'm really struggling to find exact kext with correct pinconfig and to be honest i really haven't got much time to study and understand AppleHDA patching guide. So far I've tried various config data of similar ALC269 device, as we all know this device has got some variants and thats the reason its not working for me. I've used couple of kexts and also did pikes method by pulling out the data from it and it worked good but still I use to have problems with headphone jack as it works some time and will stop working sometime.


Any how after getting my codec dump from linux and compared the nodes and it looks my device is some what different. So I need your help to patch it. I have done the extraction of verb data, please find the file in below link.

Many Thanks :)


PS: I've recently updated to 10.9.2.

PART VI - Post Installation


Post-Installation is all about making hardware devices to get recognized by OSX  by finding appropriate drivers and patches. This section will be tricky unless you have a hardware that is supported by native OSX kexts(a.k.a Drivers). So please be aware that you might need some more patience which you used so far  :yes:

Find that codec of audio have your hardware
Simply, with Ubuntu Live CD, Open app Terminal and type :  

cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#1 > ~/Desktop/codec_dump.txt

In Windows, go to "Device Manager" and look for "Sound, Video and game"
Under, choice "codec" (not the controller) and see for hardware vendor ID in the tab.something like this as shown in below pic.

Now you know your codec audio!

Discrete Graphics Cards

How to check if your Graphic card are  fully working with CE/CI 
QE/CI is graphics acceleration. Easy way to check is look at your menu bar -- if the desktop background picture is 'showing through' (eg. the menu bar is partially transparent), then it is probably working. You can also enable magnification on the OS X dock, and see if you get smooth animation.

 In this Example for the ATI HD 5000 Series: For that you card ATI HD works, the system need read this 04 kexts or never this will work.
1. Check if all kexts AMD are loading for your card with the command kexstat, open Terminal app and type

Note: Install the kext lspci.kext to the system return all the results

sudo kextstat | grep AMD

63 2 0xffffff7f80ba9000 0x1d8000 0x1d8000 com.apple.kext.AMDSupport (8.0.0) <62 10 9 7 5 4 3 1>

2. Check that Framebuffer the system is loading for your card, or only read the default com.apple.kext.AMDFramebuffer 
 ioreg | grep ATY

    | |   |   | | +-o ATY_Vervet  <class AMDFramebuffer, id 0x100000385, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (0 ms), retain 14>
3. Correct Value PCIRootUID
find the correct  value:  ioreg -l | grep -15 "AppleACPIPCI" | grep "_UID"
    | | |   "_UID" = "0"
4. Fake id with Clover boot loader, here a Example with the card : This is a technique to activate ATI HD cards with the boot loader Clover 
AMD r9 270 -7000 Series - Credits to Pokenguyen
If you're using Clover, you can use Clover Injection to force those 2 kexts loaded. Here are the supported ids for ATI HD7000 Series in the info.plist of the kexts
AMD7000Controller.kext: 0x26001002 0x22001002 0x67901002 0x67981002 0x679A1002 0x679E1002 0x67801002 0x68201002 0x68211002 0x68231002 0x68251002 0x68271002 0x682D1002 0x682F1002 0x68391002 0x683B1002 0x683D1002 0x683F1002 0x68001002 0x68011002 0x68061002 0x68081002 0x68101002 0x68181002
AMDRadeonX4000.kext - Pitcairn0x68001002 0x68011002 0x68061002 0x68081002 0x68101002 0x68181002

As you see, those ids are supported by both kexts, so we set these in Clover:

FakeID > ATI: 0x68001002

OS X will think our card id is 0x68001002 and load them, voila!
You also have to set FB Name for this card (I assume Futomaki).
Graphics > FB Name: Futomaki
Graphics > Inject ATI: check
Graphics > Dual Link: 0 for low resolution, 1 for high
Graphics > Load VBIOS: check (or not)
Graphics > Patch VBIOS: check (or not)

the final config.plist should be as shown below, and don't forget to use vanilla kexts too.

Note: HD2000/HD3000 are not the best adapted onboard graphics for OSX and there might be few or more graphical issues like glitches/artifacts after all having it configured to its best.Some work arounds has to be done to minimise these problems and may not be stable. Different troubleshooting methods work for different systems and might need to google and find one.
From the above IDs, 0116 and 0126 are the IDs of Intel HD 3000 device commonly used in Apple MacBook Pro8.1 and Mac Mini5.1. The native OSX drivers load only if any of these two IDs are present onboard, other than these two IDs then its must changing the device ID to one of these IDs using DSDT patch.
And also make sure of using the correct SMBIOS with respect to IDs. It  means the 0116 ID is for MacBooK Pro8.1 and 0126ID is for mac mini 5.1.
Follow the below steps to enable HD3000
1. Make sure vanilla AppleIntelGraphicsHD3000.kext and AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext are loaded.
2. Open DSDT.aml file using Macaisl or DSDTEditor application and look up for Device GFX0 or IGPU. Then find the address 0x00020000. Its should be something like this 

Device (GFX0)
            Name (_ADR, 0x00020000)

Now paste the below code exactly after the above code as shown below shown below.


For Mac Mini5.1 (0126 Device ID)




For MacBookPro 8.1 (0116 Device ID)

HD4XXX series will be supported natively by OSX vanilla kexts. So only boot-loaders should be configured in order to enable them.


Here is a package of clover config files which contains preconfigured plist files for intel HD3000/4000/4400/4600.Use them wisely as required.

Proper combination for sleep is: 
1) patched HPET, TIMR, RTC, PIC sections in the DSDT.aml
2) patched EHCI/UHCI sections add the clock-id in the USB ports
3) patched AppleLPC kext with chipset id, add Method_DSM fix in the DSDT
4) removed NullCPUPowerManagement from EFI/Kext 10.9
5) patched AppleRTC kext to solve CMOS reset after sleep
