In Topic: [Guide] Dell XPS 15 L502X (Early 2011) Snow Leopard Install (possibly L702x too)

20 June 2013 - 03:14 AM

Hi @Doix I have 2 questions:

  1. I currently have 10.8.2 installed using iAtkos ML2. I have downloaded the combo update from Apple's website and after the update, which kexts should I replace?
  2. Clover is installed in my EFI partition, when booting, I get a fading white screen after the verbose boot with no mouse pointer. When I install chameleon bootloader in the EFI partition, I get "Operation system not found"(Shouldn't it be "Operating system"?) message. I had to install Chameleon onto my USB stick and boot from that. But the chameleon bootloader on my USB stick gives me an error when I tries to boot Windows 8 (something about /boot/BSD). Is it possible to have 2 bootloaders at the same time - Boot into Clover first, then Chameleon when selecting the OS X partition? Or is there a fix to the fading white screen issue i'm experiencing? 

My Partition Structure from "diskutil list":

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

/dev/disk0
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *750.2 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI                         209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:         Microsoft Reserved                         134.2 MB   disk0s2
   3:       Microsoft Basic Data                         209.7 GB   disk0s3
   4:                  Apple_HFS Mac OS  X               247.0 GB   disk0s4
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Thanks

Hi Doix, Can you please look into my problem?

I installed clover boot loader with the UEFI setting on a 4GB flash drive, but when i boot from it, i can only see a white line blinking in the top left corner. I also tried iAtkos ML3U but ended up with the same result. My BIOS is set to UEFI boot only.

Thanks

Ben

Anyone Tried iAtkos ML3U? The installation disk won't boot with UEFI on my computer

Just had a bit time for some experimentation before the provincial exams come.

For the sleep/wake issue I had, I just simply disabled the GUI boot and put in boot flag -f. The non-GUI boots unexpectedly faster than the original GUI boot, all the kexts loads in 5 seconds. Now my computer can sleep/wake on A12 BIOS without problems(Still testing, my normal test length is about 2 weeks). Speedstep works perfectly too, now I just have to somehow purchase a DW1510 card for my wireless.

I still have some problems with the screen brightness after boot, hoping to resolve this after my provincials.

Thanks for the great tutorial

Ben
