  1. thank you for your response.. I found that resolution was not the issue. Dropping to 40Hz its the only way to avoid the freezing on minimize. I guess i will buy a E6430 (Ivy Bridge) and sell my E6420 (Sandy Bridge).
  2. hello, Thank you for your reply. You were the only one to actually have an idea as to what the issue is. I suspected it was a OSX bug as someone i know has a real iMac and is experiencing same issue. As you suggested I changed my pixel clock and tried different settings. when i brought it down to 1600x900 @ 40Hz the widow doest freeze no more on minimize. but to me that seems like its excessive. going down to 40Hz from 60Hz. is there any other way to get this issue resolved ? what am I loosing on my screen to go down to such low pixel clock ? Is this something that reloading the OS could fix ? I Can't believe i'm the only one with a Dell Latitude with the 1600x900 resolution. is it a better option to just load Mavericks ? i have Mavericks running on my ASUS laptop and i really see no reason to keep EL Capitan. Thanks again for taking the time to respond.
  3. Hello All, I have a dell e6420 laptop which i have setup for triple boot. i just realized that i followed an old guide and thus it might be why I'm having freezes on minimize windows. specifically browser windows. this is what i did: install osx el capitan created 2 partitions fat installed windows installed ubuntu installed gptsync on ubuntu to keep all partitions sync'ed. went back to windows and made OSX partition active so that clover will boot. now everything works fine, but i have a very strange issue. when i hit minimize, the window freezes half way down and then it goes to the dock. sometimes it just hangs and i have to reboot. this issue is only on OSX. windows and linux don't exhibit this issue. i thought my issue was related to installing gptsync under linux, so i have removed it after reading other triple boot guides but the issue remains. it seems keeping the partitions in sync is no longer needed. Specs: Dell E6420 8GB RAM 525 GB Crucial SSD intel i7 2.8Ghz 1600x900 Display is there a log that i can attach to try and see where this issue is coming from ? thanks here is a picture:

    Guide ASUS N53SM_Clover

    interesting.. i just noticed my bluetooth button is also grayed out. has any one found a way to correct this ? .. i notice that on my EFI\CLOVER\OEM\N53SV\KEXT\OTHER\ I have BTFirmwareUploader am wondering if thats the Bluetooth kext that the machine is using and causing my bluetooth issue. if i remove the kext or replace it, do i have to use disktools to fix permissions (or another tool) on the EFI partition, or can i just remove it and reboot ? thanks

    Guide ASUS N53SM_Clover

    Ok, So after following this Guide (kinda) i have now been able to install Yosemite 10.10.2 and its running perfect on my machine. (well the battery percentage always shows at 0, but I'll fix that later.) here are the notes so that other people can use this guide. (thanks again to anerik70 for creating and posting the guide) First: This guide is for a N53SM model, however if you like me have a different model of the N53S series the guide still works but you need to make a change. On the Video: Configure Clover you see him renaming a folder to N53SM. you need to rename that folder to same model as your machine. Mine is N53SV so that's the name i used to rename it. otherwise clover won't find your DSDT and you will have a Kernel Panic. Second: in the video of Configure Clover for the USB installer you can see there are 7 kext used. these are not on the EFI folder he shared, but i have found them and i have attached them to this post for you to download. Third: if you have a 1080p screen or if you upgraded your 720p LCD panel to a 1080p like i did (very easy mod, just google it) then the machine will give you garbage on the screen when it boots up. you need to patch the DSDT file. i already done that for my machine and is also included on the files I'm sharing. replace the DSDT from his EFI folder and use the one i attached. Fourth: Copying his preconfigured EFI folder to my hard drive did not work for me. so i copied the one already created on the USB installer and that worked. 5th: sound did not work for me. so i downloaded Voodoo kext installer (google it) and that worked. now i got sound. ethernet and usb 3.0 did not work. download kext helper and install those kext. and last, the machine bios did not see the EFI partition to boot from the hard drive, so boot with usb installer select clover options and then choose "add boot options". next time you reboot you will be able to select Clover as a EFI boot option. ... Just my two cents. Clover and Kext files.zip

    Guide ASUS N53SM_Clover

    Hello, Thanks to anerik70 for creating this install guide. one thing to be noted though is that the youtube video for: -Prepare USB for clover and -install clover to USB have the same link. i did find the right video on ANERIK70 list of uploaded videos on youtube so maybe he can fix the the link. otherwise here is the link for it: -Install clover to USB https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHx20DPyOFY also, in the video: -Configure Clover there are several files used to setup clover on the USB install stick, however i cant find those files anywhere. is there a chance that maybe you can post those files ? Thanks again ANERIK70 for taking the time to create the guide and share it with us.
  7. Hi there.. Any chance you can post your steps ? at least how did you install with clover ? what settings do i need on clover ? thanks
  8. Hi there, I also have a N53SV running OSX 10.8.5 and will greatly appreciate a guide to do a clean install of Yosemite since i am running Chameleon. Can anyone post a guide ? or even start a new thread for the benefit of all of us ? -Thanks.
  9. Hi, First off let me say thank you for such a detailed procedure. Is this procedure for overclocking / making your CPU i turbo mode or are there other advantages to doing this ? Like getting sleep mode to actually work. But now Let me ask you: is your CPU quad core ? And If so, when you go to see your CPU graph, does it shows activity in all graphs ? I ask cause I'm lookin for a fix to my issue in which on my computer the first graph shows activity, the second one does not, third one active the 4th no activity, etc. It's as if only 4 of the 8 cores are working. However about this Mac correctly indicates I have a quad core Proccessor. Thanks.
  10. I am definitely interested. What is the AICPUM ? Also, when you say native CPU management, does that allows for all 8 Cores to be utilized by the OS ? I find that when i look at the CPU graph one core is used the other not, then one is used then other not. Etc.. What kext are you using for the battery management ? I ask cause my battery always say 0%. Thanks.
  11. I'm running 10.8.5 no problem.. Look How easy it is, you don't need to do a fresh install. It doesn't matter what version of 10.8.x you are on. Just remove all instances of VoodooHda.kext Use my hack and do a full MyFix Go to AppStore and upgrade to 10.8.5 After reboot Now you have 10.8.5 but no sound. Go and delete applehda.kext Reboot computer and make sure NO AppleHda kext are loaded. (I used kext wizard to verify) Then drop VoodooHda.kext in E/E Reboot machine using your install USB drive and run MyFix again (Full). Restart and you are done !! Now you have 10.8.5 and Sound. I might have taken extra steps, but that's what worked for me.
  12. Hello, did you create install disk with 10.8.0 and then upgraded to 10.8.2 or did you create USB install with 10.8.2 ? Any chance you could describe your steps ? Hello Guys, First off thanks for this forum. its really helped a lot of us not so experts at this hobby. this is my issue, maybe someone can help me with this .. My SPECS: N53SV-dh7 with the i7 2670QM 2.2GHz processor and 8GB RAM I created a USB install with 10.8.2 using the my hack method and the OSXlatitude N53S i5 Extra bootpack however it did not work. then i created a 10.8.0 USB install using my hack and the OSXlatitude N53S i5 Extra bootpack that worked !! but after install all i had working was video and ethernet, then i downloaded the N53S drivers folder posted at the beginning of the thread. First the keyboard and trakpad kext. then i had the laptop keyboard and trackpad working. to get the sound i used the VODOOO kext and (VERY IMPORTANT) deleted appleHDA kext. (trial and error here .. lol) then i used the usb 3.0 kext and that worked like a charm. Only problem with machine is that if it goes to sleep machine crashes. (doesnt wake up ) other than that everything works fine. Here is my problem, when i downloaded the 10.8.2 combo update after it finished and i rebooted i had a kernel panic. so i used my hack and ran myfix for to fix permissions and also did a "remove problematic kext" That didnt work. So i ended up rolling back to 10.8.0 using TIME MACHINE. I strongly recommend once you have a system partially working using time machine to back it up, it will save you so much time later.. Again trial and error here... Im guessing thats why the 10.8.2 install USB did not work. Can anyone help me with this Kernel Panic ? " Notice - new kext com.apple.iokit.IOHIDSystem, v1.8 matches prelinked kext but cant determine if executables are the same " i have attached a picture of the screen. any help will be appreciated . BTW: are there any kext/files i should delete after installation to have a clean system ? ----- it seems i cannot attach a picture .. where is the attach button ?
