Dell Precision M4300

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, I've got a Dell Precision M4300, which is pretty much a Latitude D830 except for the top... Anyways, I have an interesting issue as far as installing iAtkos L2 goes. I get past formatting the drive, and customizing the install, but once I'm installing, unless I move the mouse constantly, it will freeze. I am new to the whole hackintosh thing, but I did manage to install iAtkos S3 v2 sucessfully, except for wireless, because my particular laptop has the Intel Wireless card.


More info:

I'm installing from a USB thumbdrive

My laptop has the Quadro FX360M

It uses the Intel T9300

My current boot options: -v -f -x32 GraphicsEnabler=No BootGraphics=Yes -x


Am I going to have to sit through the whole install moving my mouse, or is there an easy fix?

reinstall with mavericks, retail from app store...

I looked into this... But Mavericks requires SSE3 and this laptop only supports SSE2. Thanks for the quick reply though, I appreciate it

M4300 supports all recent Mac OS X versions from Snow Leopard to Mavericks in 64bit kernel mode with all FSB800 Merom/Penryn CPU! I had one myself until not very long ago and it ran 10.9.1 with all hardware supported (laptop now sold).



Installation guide/bootpacks/performance tuning packs are all available at osxlatitude.com with full Vanilla installations support (don't use distros!).
