  1. Dear, We can agree, that we disagree about this issue. Your house-your rules, and that's ok by me. This doesn't mean that I have to share your views about this. I am no one's solicitor, and I am not representing either side. I think that the wheel doesn't need to be reinvented, it is common good. You can only find different ways of using it. I hoped to receive more positive feedback to simplified and effective install method, and help regarding remaining issues mentioned in my post. By focusing on this and joining forces, something may be achieved for greater good of all. Once again, Linux communities, both open source and commercial, are great example of cooperation. Necessity is the mother of invention and the ends justify the means! Best regards from Serbia!
  2. Dear fantomas1, "I am great enthusiast and supporter of Linux, which is, as you all well know OPEN SOURCE. This means that knowledge is meant to be shared and to be available to all, which I believe applies to the Hackintosh project also." I think that my point is clear. By filtering my post you directly brake previous, making my post wasted time because readers won't get it if they can't find my sources. I just wished to share my knowledge with others without your censorship. Is it against your rules to avoid your filter by implying something? You won't find two Linux communities spitting on each other, even if someone makes profit along side. In fact,It is being fruitfull for them. At the end, if my post is not worthy by your "standards" fill free to delete it, I will find some free and uncensored space on the Internet to post it ! Best regards from Serbia!
  3. ​This is short guide, without unnecessary repeating well known installation procedures. For those who find this hard to follow, I suggest “Google” around like I was, before returning to this, because for those familiar with this, it will be a piece of cake! I put some effort to put this together, within my abilities and knowledge, but there are some unresolved issues, for which I hope to find help here, especially from more experienced guys who run this project. I am great enthusiast and supporter of Linux, which is, as you all well know OPEN SOURCE. This means that knowledge is meant to be shared and to be available to all, which I belive applies to the Hackintosh project also. So, this is my contribution : My configuration: 17.3" Full High Definition (1080p) LED Display with Anti-Glare 3rd Generation Intel® CoreTM i7-3630QM 2.4 Ghz (6MB cache, up to 3.4 Ghz) 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz 256GB Samsung SSD 840 PRO Series ( Windows 7 + Ubuntu - MBR) 1TB 5400RPM SATA HDD ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB ( Mac OS X RecoveryHD + Data - GUID) 128GB mSATA SSD KINGSTON SMS200S3120G ( Mac OS X Mavericks HD - GUID, BIOS set to AHCI and can’t boot mSATA directly, use boot loader on RecoveryHD or Windows EasyBCD) NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M GDDR5 2GB (completely disabled by DSDT injection) Intel HD 4000 ( does not need an EFI string after installation enabled by DSDT injection) Intel WiFi/BT ( replaced with Atheros 9285 + IoGear USB BT ) Instalation : 1. ##### method (Forbidden here, you will know which one) - Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 - Use HDMI connected display for installation or - Add this EFI key to org.chameleon.Boot.plist in Extra folder of USB stick, so you can use built-in display for installation <key>device-properties</key> <string>7f0000000100000001000000730000000200000002 010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c000000 4100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066 006f0072006d002d0069006400000008000000040066011400 00006800640061002d0067006600780000000d0000006f6e62 6f6172642d31</string> Post-Instalation : 1. ##### method (Forbidden here, you will know which one) - Preselected options file attached ( Exclude TRIM Patch if you don’t use SSD ) 2. Necessary tools for post-installation attached. 3. Extra folder with files attached ( Create your own smbios.plist with Chameleon Wizard - MacBookPro8,3 17-inch, Early 2011 This is important! ) 4. S/L/E folder with kexts attached ( Use Kext Wizard to install kexts, repair permissions and reboot! That`s all folks!) 5. Crate Apple ID,activate and authorize computer with iTunes, but remember that you need valid credit card or you will not be able to use iMessages or FaceTime ! Ethernet must be en0 ! If you don`t have other WiFi card use HoRNDIS-rel4.pkg for Android USB tethering or just BT tethering ! Unresolved Issues : - Touchpad ( Working but only basic input, no gestures like 2 finger scrolling ) - Audio ( Working but subwoofer and HDMI audio not working, Line-In not tested) - FN keys ( Brightness and WiFi control not working, audio working ) - Lan ( only with 10baseT/UTP half duplex ) - Sleep ( First sleep OK, after that touchpad not working, sleep not working, wrong readings TZ1 and TZ2 ) - DSDT ( Operational, but obviously need fine tweaking to resolve issues and enable all features possible. I don’t use SSDT, speedsteping with turbo boost ) - Card Reader ( Recognized as connected to Built-In USB/Hub, USB2.0-CRW, Product ID:0x0129 Vendor ID:0x0bda (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.) not working ) - Built-In Screen ( Not reaching full brightness unless you have hot corner activated to put it to sleep and activate again, after that all normal ) - Fan RPM ( not detected or stuck to 255 rpm ) Conclusion : This is best I could do at this moment. It is functional Hackintosh, but with issues. If you want real thing you know where Apple.com is. This machine deserves attention of this community, not only because of its performance and compatibility but also ability for improvements with right people included. I invite all people with good will and some knowledge to help. These were my start points and I like to thank Lejenk for his efforts to put his guide together and help many of us. I hope mine will be helpful too. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286552-guidedell-inspirion-17r-se-7720-installation-guide/ http://www.osx86.net/files/file/512-...20-dsdt-kexts/ Best regards from Serbia!
