In Topic: Anyone with LION on Dell Precision 690 ? -Yes ME :)

02 October 2014 - 11:31 PM

Well I finally got an install on my 690. This has to be the ugliest install I have ever done. I got iAtkos 10.6.3 installed on the IDE drive, added the modified LSI SAS kext and my SAS showed up. I then cloned the drive to the SAS Drive and installed the bootloader and am able to boot to the clone drive. I have updated it to 10.6.8 and repaired all permissions and a roll back of the usb to 10.6.2 to get the usb working. I would like to be able to get my sata ports working before I move forward any more as well as my graphics card. I have a Quadro 400 installed and the graphics are the basic set up with no ability to change the resolution and the card shows up as an unknown  nividia 14MB ????. 

WORKING: audio (via voodoo) ethernet (Via modded bcm5722d kext)SAS (no raid via modded LSI kext) 

not working: video (no qe/ci) SATA ports and sleep(who cares?)

Looking to jump up to mavericks on next step but The system cannot do a "clean" install as there is no way that I have found to do this as of now. Any one have any ideas? on how to get my video and sata up to speed?

Hello all. I would like to get ANY version of QSX installed on my dell 690. Apparently it can only be installed on 1 version of the board. (As there were several versions) I have the MY0171 version RevA02 and according to what I have found IT is the only version that has success of installation of the OS. My dilemma is that there is no clear method of installation for this. Bits and pieces of how to can be found and many promises from people going to make a how to guide, but none have come fourth. Anyone able to point me in the proper direction on how to at least install ANY version of OSX an this machine? I have been trying for over a week now and have come up empty. Any direction on this would be appreciated. Thanks

Nice build Baldy_Man! Have you  run any benchies overclocked? It has some good numbers to start with and has potential. :)
