jtrindle replied to immo's topic in LaptopsHi folks. I am trying to get an XPS m1330 running Mountain Lion or above, preferably Yosemite or above. It is running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and Lion 10.7.5 just fine booting via Chameleon, but I need a higher OS to meet an app's requirements. The problem is, the installer locks up part way through. It seems to relate to computer temperature. I have made it as far as the "23 minutes left" progress bar of the actual install, but within a minute it locks up. I've left it overnight. The warmer the computer is when I start, the sooner it locks up while accessing the hard drive. Often it doesn't even switch to the GUI. I have tried many different combos, and am currently trying to use Clover to install Olarila Mavericks. I'm using the DSDT https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=114948 from post #1 in this thread. and I have GraphicsEnabler=Y and have tried various combinations of Inject NVDIDIA, nv_disable=1, etc. as well as different DSDT.aml files from the first post of this thread. Any ideas?
jtrindle replied to M4ciek's topic in General DiscussionI have the Dell M6600 with ATI Firepro M8900 (ATI 6970M) adapter, and I've tried to get the VGA working under Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra, and High Sierra with no success. I do have LVDS, DP and HDMI working with modified Muskgrass, and have with Cattail (which only reveals 3 ports instead of 4 in IORegistryExplorer). When I boot and then plug in the VGA, the monitor goes into power saving mode. If I try to boot with the VGA monitor plugged, in, I don't get any LVDS, DP, or HDMI . Has anyone made the VGA plug work with this laptop? Thank you! ...John Trindle config.plist.zip DSDT.aml.zip
