Mountain Lion 10.8.3 - iAtkos MLU3 on Dell Inspiron 14 2640 (Dell 3421)

14 July 2013 - 04:24 AM

Hello, how are you doing?


I just bought this new laptop from Dell and I'm struggling to get it working with Mountain Lion. I downloaded the iAtkos MLU3 from the official website, checked the MD5 number (it passed) and restored the .dmg file to a usb thumb drive. So I booted the laptop with the thumb drive (via UEFI) and it worked fine, actually the installer didn't take more than a minute to load. The installation process was pretty neat and took less than 15 minutes, leaving me with the strange feeling of "it was way too easy" (I got a lot of problems installing Snow Leopard on my old AMD desktop). Then came the problem: the installation won't start!


After getting the message DSMOS has arrived the welcome screen simply doesn't pop up! On a quick search I found out that it could be due to my graphics card (an Intel HD4000 and a Nvdia Geforce). I tried deleting all the Nvidia drivers and unused Intel Graphics drivers from the S/L/E but it didn't work. I tried using different kexts (ones provided in OSX86.com) that were for the Dell 15R SE but no success.


As well I notice an error referring to the Apple Power Management (did I say it right?) informing that the CPU wasn't recognised, refering it to something involving ACPI. I couldn't find any option to deactivate it on the BIOS (note that I deleted any partition that my computer had when it was bought, so now I got the standard UEFI/BIOS with blocked functions and a 1tb hard drive with Clover bootloader and the broken installation in a GPT scheme).


Another error that pops up on the last line (after the DSMOS has arrived message) follows below:


[AppleBluetoothHCIControllerUSBTransport] [configurePM] -- ERROR -- waited 30 seconds and still did not get the command Wakeup.notification

[IOBluetoothHCIController::setconfigstate] calling register service


For this I deleted any bluetooth kext on the S/L/E and the error where gone, leaving the last line with just the DSMOS message, and I think it has no deal with this, since it appears as well on the installer boot and it doesn't get a problem running (to note, with full resolution).


Pls, find enclosed a HTML file with my laptop specs, see below an overall:



CPU Intel® Core™ i5-3337U third generation (1.8GHz up to 2.7GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0, 4 Threads, 3Mb Cache)


Integraded Graphics Intel HD 4000

6GB SDRAM DDR3 1600 MHz - 2 DIMM

Chipset Mobile Intel® HM76 Express

Dell Wireless 1703 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0 + LE

Ethernet 10/100 Realtek



At the moment I've got no camera to take a snapshot, but as soon as possible will provide one.


Can anybody help me?

Kotoeri is not working properly!

I'm finally back to my headaches on Snow Leopard! I was using Windows 8 for a while (the consumer preview one) and I was not willing to have to format my hd to install mac os x all over again (I even thought I had forgotten how to work around the stuff) but here I am, with SL 10.6.8 running smooth on my old slugish machine.

Although everything's running smooth (well, almost everything) one bug is really annoying me. I'm an enthusiast and I'm trying to learn japanese, and so I do need japanase input capabilities on my computer (and I must say, windows 8 had a great input method, as good as mac os x), but my SL installation refuses to give this in a smooth method. Kotoeri works great just to input hiragana or katakana, but when I try to input kanji it doesn't run properly. When I press the spacebar once it comes up with the first kanji, okay, everything's fine, but when I hit spacebar again it gives a hiccup and then erases everything I wrote, giving me a space only where it should pop up a floating menu for me to choose which character I want.

For instance, if I want to write 人 using the pronunciation じん and not ひと I simple can't, because the first kanji to come up for じん is 陣 and if I hit the spacebar again to offer me the other choice it just lags and give me a blank space.

See the video I made to show how bad it is. Here it crashed several times (I trimmed the video to make it shorter):


Does anyone knows how to fix this up? I really couldn't find it anywhere on the internet...
