1. Credits/Sources
Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide:

2. Requirements
Here are the requirements:

  • A Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M – This is necessary to install OS X El Capitan for this tutorial
  • A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OS X Yosemite.
    Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended.
  • A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger).
  • A copy of OS X El Capitan – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the OS X El Capitan Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store.
  • 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while.
  • An SSD or HDD to install 10.9 to – For me, I used a 250GB partition to install 10.9 to.
  • An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor.
  • E6320.zipThis ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared.

3. My Specs
My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M Laptop computer with the following specs.
NOTE: A Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor is recommended to use the full potential of OS Mavericks because the on board wifi doesn't work.

  • - Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.5GHz, 3MB cache, Dual Core
  • - 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
  • - Western Digital 250GB HDD
  • - INTEL HD3000 Video
  • - Intel 825xx onboard network
  • - Bluetooth radio onboard (works OOB)
  • - IDT 92HDxxx HD audio onboard
  • - TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor
  • - Apple Magic Trackpad (only @home)
  • - Apple Wireless Keyboard US (only @home)
  • - Apple Magic Mouse

4. Download OS X El Capitan
Start OS X Yosemite on a exsisting Mac or Hackintosh, to prepare your USB Flash drive.
Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB Flash drive thru disk Utility in Mac OS X.

  • Open Mac App Store.

  • Download OS X El Capitan
  • Done!

The application INSTALL OS X El Capitan will appear in /Applications.
5. Prepare Bootable USB Installer

I recommend using Chris1111'S app for creating your USB Installer. It is a great timesaver!

  • Download App Here[/url
  • Follow the instructions in the first Post for creating USB Installer.
  • Select Installer OS X El Capitan and Install in ESP (see image below)

Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OS X El Capitan.

  • Start your Dell Latitude and press F2 to get into the Bios.
  • In the main screen click on "Load Defaults", the bios will be reset to default settings.
  • Go to General - Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting.
  • Go then to System Configuration - SATA Operation and choose on the right for AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing OS X El Capitan.

7. Installing OS X El Capitan from your USB drive
Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install OS X El Capitan onto the Hard Drive.
Using a USB 4G flash drive will help things out quite a bit.

  • Power on unit while tapping F12 Key to choose boot device, select USB device.
  • When Clover boot screen is visible, choose boot "Mac OS X from El Capitan USB Installer".
  • The system will then boot into OS X installer
  • For a new installation of OS X, you must erase and format the destination drive according to the following steps before continuing.
    • If you are upgrading from Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks or Yosemite and you want to keep your files and apps, skip steps a-j.
    • A. Choose Disk Utility
    • B. Highlight your target drive for El Capitan installation in the left column.
    • C. Click Partition tab
    • D. Click Current and choose 1Partition
    • E. Click Options....
    • F. Choose GUID Partition Table.
    • G. Under name: Type El Capitan (you can change it later if desired).
    • H. Under Format: Choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
    • I. Click Apply the Partition.
    • J. Close Disk Utility.
  • When the installer asks you where to install, choose El Capitan Hard Drive.
  • Upon completion, system will restart a 1st time.
  • Press F12 key to choose the boot device.
  • When the Clover Boot screen is visible, Choose your El Capitan Hard Drive.
  • You will eventually get to the setup screens for OS X El Capitan. Go through the setup process to setup OS X El Capitan.
  • Choose at "How do i connect to the internet " ..."My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet", we will fix this later, go further with the setup process.
  • The setup process will take about 3 minutes.
  • Done!

8. Adjust some settings in OS X 10.11

  • Once in 10.11 go to finder – preferences – General and choose in "show these items on the desktop" for
    • Hard Disk
    • External Disk
    • CD
  • Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock icon in the lower left corner and type your password.
  • Choose by “Allow applications downloaded from": click on "Anywhere"
  • Close system preferences.

9. Installing The Clover Bootloader on Your Hackintosh
The following instructions may appear a bit oversimplified, but we are trying to keep it simple for first-time Clover Bootloaders users.

  • Copy the Clover Installer from the root of your El Capitan USB Installer to your desktop.
  • Open Clover Package installer.
  • Hit Continue, Continue, Change Install Location...
  • Choose your HD, now called El Capitan and press Continue (see images below)
  • Hit Customize and install clover with the following Custom Install settings (see images below)
  • After installation of the Clover Bootloader, the EFI Partition of your El Capitan Hard Drive should be mounted on your desktop.

  • In Tools Folder of the zip file, Open Clover Configurator.
  • Click File, Open File and select config.plist in EFI/EFI/Clover.
  • Click on SMBIOS in left side pane and create your new SMBIOS (iMac 8.1) with Random Serial Number.
  • Close Clover Configurator and save changes.
  • Finished! Now remove the USB Installer and reboot into OS X El Capitan.

10. Install Wlan driver for the TL-WN725N
The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK.
The software is straight forward and installs without problems, the only thing is that after login the wireless
app starts up and you have must close it every time, therefore I have made a script to launch the program
after login and close it after 5 seconds.

  • For installing the driver go to the folder “E6320 – Wlan_TP-LINK”.
  • Launch the Installer.pkg and install the software, after install you will get the message to restart.
  • Choose restart to restart you laptop.
  • After restart the software will start the Wireless App.
  • Choose you desired network and add it to your profile.
  • Now we can install the login script.
  • Go to “System Preferences – Users & Groups”, go to tab Login Items.
  • Choose the + sign and browse to the folder “Install_E6320 - Wlan_TP-LINK” and choose “Wireless App2”.
  • Close System Preferences.

11. iMessage & FaceTime Fix
You will need MLB and Rom numbers from a legit Mac device that is onthe mac server.
Run iMessage debug on a iMac, Macbook, etc and make a copy and paste of the Terminal output.

  • Open Clover Configurator.
  • Mount EFI Partition.
  • Import config.plist from EFI/EFI/Clover (File , import configuration, browse to config.plist and select).
  • In Clover Configurator Click on RT Variables, Enter Rom and MLB Values from iMessage output from valid iMac device.
  • Save changes to config.plist.
  • Reboot, Sign into iMessage

iMessage and FacTime should now both be working.
12. What's working?
Just about everything.
13. Finished!
You’ve successfully installed OS X El Capitan onto your Dell Latitude E6320.
