In Topic: [Guide] Dell Inspiron 15R (N5110) 2011 - SL 10.6.8 Installation

hey will this work with Dell Inspiron 15r (n5010) ?



Didn't someone said there will be a full guide here somewhere?

I am running Lion GM on my Dell N5110 and currently only few things are not working.

1. The nVidia GT 525M GraphicsCard - Don't know if it will ever be supported.
2. The Wireless - easily fixed by getting an external USB wireless from Edimax.
3. My Touchpad Mouse. - This is a strange one because I had it working on Lion DP3, but since I installed GM I am not able to get it working.


Did someone manage to find a fix for either of these issues? I would like to have at least my mouse working.

Would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I have a DELL (R15) N5110 notebook which has HD3000 as one of its graphics cards. I have installed Lion DP4 on it, and it has this 5 sec delay. This was not happening on Lion DP3.

I wanted to ask if someone can help in fixing this issue. my table is not like the one on this post. My nm command produced something a bit different.

00000000000c5a9 t __GLOBAL__D_PlatformInformationList which I believe the address was 0x0c5a9 + 4096 =54697

My table is different, so can this technique be used the same? and how do I know which connector is causing the problem.

I would appreciate any help.

Thanks guymass. I showed the Dell representative your file, yet he keeps denying the HD3000 is included. However, as it comes with i3-2310M Processor it must have the HD3000 as well as it's integrated. Of course I trust more on your expertise than on theirs, and I kept pushing. Eventually someone at Dell confirmed that both will be availble to use, sadly not at Dell NL but Dell UK, but a promise is a promise. Will go for the Nvidia equipped one now, for use on Windows or when a kext becomes available. Thank you for your time!


Your welcom. FYI, my model is an Israel one, so maybe they have different specs for different countries, that is why they claim it doesn't have both cards, but I think a Model should be the same everywhere.

Best of luck.

I'm at a loss here, does the 15r come with both the Intel HD3000 and the Nvidia?



Thats correct ;) here is an HTML export from SIW that will show you all the hardware I have on this machine.

I have this Norebook and I have installed Lion on it. Everything works fine except for Wifi and Nvidia which I hope someone will soon find a solution for it. you can always buy a USB supported wifi.


Currently 32bit mode is the best although everythings works as well in 64bit mode accepts the Realtek LAN PCIe PE RTL8167 (8136). Works in 32bit mode.

Built in camera works! sound works! USB 2&3 Works.

I Found thet the best way to go for Lion is use a Chameleon RC5 Boot loader Latest, Chimera did not work for Lion but is good for 10.6.8

Most of the 10.6.8 KEXT will work on Lion. Just use any of the Guides out there. Also look for a file called Lion.pkg and Extra.pkg these are important to install onto the installation USB stick prior to be able to boot.

I also used ##### latest to start things going. Boot firstly with Kernel Flags -v -f arch=i386 cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No

after install you can remove the -f, and then edit your boot.plist, I use for this NB "arch=i386 cpus=1 busratio=20 GraphicsEnabler=No ForceWake=Yes".

I used VoodooHDA2.27 for Sound.
AppleRTL8169.kext for Lan - this need to be modified in Info.plist, change all 0x8xxxxx to be 0x816710ec 0x813610ec.

Intel HD3000 should work OOB.
I used ##### just to install the USB3 NEC + USB Rollback.

Also VoodooPS2 for keyboard and mouse.
FakeSMC

and few others which are explained in the N5110 install guides out there.

Hope this helps, if you find a solution for the wifi or Nvidia 525M GT please let us know.
I would like to help on this, but don't know where to begin on how to create a kext package or EFI string or DSDT.aml file.

A guide on this would help.
