Hello, PM'd you. thanks

In Topic: Cannot reach installation on Dell Inspiron 11 3147

15 June 2016 - 01:44 PM

Great News! It seems that the solution to the clock problem is simply to use chameleon/chimera in legacy mode. With this kernel, I have a fully working installation of mavericks on my dell inspiron 11 i3147 with chameleon v2538. The only thing that still doesnt work is the graphics. Animations are fine, the only bootflags I have to use after I rebuilt the kernel and kext caches are npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=1 and "Graphics Mode"="1366x768x32". Touchpad and touchscreen fully working, mulitgestures and all, sound, wifi, bluetooth (replaced card with dell DW1560 wifi, $37 when I bought it).I cannot express how immensely appreciative I am of this kernel. If anybody would like more information please reply and I will post my config, kexts, etc.


Also, I am pretty much desperate to find a way to enable qe/ci on this thing. I know it's intel gen7, based off of ivy bridge (HD4000) so it shouldn't be too hard to patch the intelcaprifb and intel hd4000 kexts to enable support.

I'd appreciate the info. cgsg2017.. Just picked up an Inspiron 11 3000 with a N3050. Would be great to pursue the possibilities of this. Thanks

You're welcome, consider it another aspect of your Hackintosh ongoing education... You try, you fail, you experiment, you learn. That's the idea; makes a break from perpetual spoonfeeding...


Indeed, Enoch does not do the AICPUPM patch that Clover did. You can read about EC-capable Enoch in this thread. You may attempt to boot in single-user mode and add NullCPUPM or the patched AICPUPM kext.


I see you're booting with an MBP4,1 SMBIOS, which is not the right profile for a Latitude E6420 with SandyBridge CPU and Intel HD3000 graphics. Using Chameleon Wizard, set your SMBIOS profile to MacBookPro8,2 and save the SMBIOS plist in your /Extra folder.


You'll also need a kernel plist in which you place references to injected kexts location and/or patches to use (a bit like Clover, but just a bit...). In the case of the SandyBridge platform, only 1 parameters is useful:

  • KernelBooter_kexts (=Yes/No) -> tells Enoch to load (or not) injected kexts from /Extra/Extensions

Injected kexts will incur a sligghtly slower boot time than if kexts were placed in /Library/Extensions for instance, but it's a powerful way to test kexts: place proven kexts in /L/E and cache/prelink them; place test kexts in /E/E and inject them with KernelBooter_kexts=Yes.

Thanks for your guidance, Herve! Problem still exists, frequent freezing and graphic glitching..  going back to Clover as I've been working with this package for quite a while.. Peluco, have you experienced improved graphics behaviour through your work? Thanks.

Tried that, didn't want to boot. Created a fresh USB as per Enoch guide. I'm getting the dreaded KP. Thanks Herve.

Maybe something to do with Clover settings then... I only ever use Chameleon and/or Enoch and have not experienced this behaviour on the E6420. Maybe you try a new EC installation with Enoch and compare.

Thanks Herve, could I delete the Clover boot files and simply install Enoch w/ pertinent Extra folder/files?
