  1. Hi. Yes, it was a direct upgrade from the App Store. No issues so far, but as I said... did not convert from HFS+ to APFS.
  2. Great Got the High Sierra 10.13.1 update working on my Inspiron 7520. I don't know why it works now: it may be because I skipped the HFS+ to APFS conversion as I ran the upgrade as follows, or because there were some fixes in the 10.13.1 update: /Applications/"Install macOS High Sierra.app"/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --converttoapfs NO --agreetolicense Everything working fine... no need to do anything special.
  3. Had no luck when upgrading to High Sierra (but luckily I had cloned my MacOS partition before - successfully restored afterwards): black screen during update, nothing happening. Anyone had more luck?
  4. Happy to hear from other Inspiron 7520 users using macOS. I already asked this in this thread, but may I know which display profile (preferences > displays > color) you are using? Or did you calibrate your screen? Not totally convinced that the colors of my built-in display are perfect on macOS.
  5. I launched the upgrade from 10.12 (yes, 10.12; had not made the upgrade to 10.12.5 yet) to 10.12.6 and everything worked fine (even brightness, even HDMI out, ethernet ... ) (and I did not replace AppleHDA.kext... audio still working). Great . I did not expect that an upgrade on a hackintosh would be so smooth.
  6. Safe to update to Sierra 10.12.6? BTW: still a pleasure to work with my "Mac". So glad I found this post. [emoji6] Verstuurd vanaf mijn XT1092 met Tapatalk
  7. The thing is: I never had such difference between browsers in Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10, using exact the same profile for my built-in display. See attached screenshot how things look like (and notice the color difference) -- from left to right: Google Chrome (too yellow), Firefox and Safari. On my smartphone, I see the same color as Firefox and Safari shows me in macOS. And Google Chrome is my favorite browser, so quite frustrating I have this issue. Any help, and clue? May I ask which browser you are using?
  8. One more question : which display profile are you using for the built-in display? I was used to use a calibrated one (https://www.notebookcheck.net/uploads/tx_nbc2/Inspiron_15R_SE.icc (posted in the review https://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Dell-Inspiron-15R-Special-Edition-Notebook.78323.0.html)) on Windows 10 and Ubuntu. I also want to use that one as the colors are too blue (when using the default "Display"). The only thing I am seeing now is that Google Chrome (Firefox not, Safari not) also seems to apply this profile, making the colors on some websites looking too yellow. So just wondering: what is your display set-up? Thanks in advance!
  9. Another update: I took your clover.plist file and reinstalled macOS and now I have HDMI output. Great But now the next issue: no dual monitor (the internal one stays blank). So, what's next ? How can I get my internal monitor up-and-running again? EDIT : rebooting and now I have dual monitor set-up. Great ! EDIT2 : everything working now, also audio and brightness. Really great, and I love the macOS experience. Thanks for your guide!
  10. Managed to install MacOS Sierra ? but only thing I am struggling with is a) I always need to boot from the USB installer (no big deal for me), but b ) I cannot get the HDMI working ?... I installed your kext (as you explained in the opening post) but how / where can I set that IntelCapriFB parameter? I don't find the clover.plist on the USB installer disk (from which I am booting). Any help is welcome. Thanks. Sent from my XT1092 using Tapatalk
  11. Tried that but without any luck: could boot from stick but screen stayed black (just after showing 5 for a second or so). Sent from my XT1092 using Tapatalk
  12. Hi. Thanks for this guide. I successfully created the USB install - disk, but the USB does not seem bootable: F12 shows me the boot list (using UEFI boot, secure boot OFF) but the USB stick is not appearing. Any idea what went wrong? I first thought it was because of the UEFI boot mode: changed it to legacy (which gives me a USB flash drive as boot option), but no luck (nothing happens when choosing for the USB drive). Anyone any advice? FYI (but perhaps important): my current set-up is a single SSD drive, dual booting Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10. I created the USB installer in a virtual machine running Yosemite Zone. PS: sorry if this is a noob question (quite new in this stuff ) -- EDIT: I managed to create a bootable macOS Sierra USB installer (from Windows 10). It boots perfectly to the macOS Sierra installer. Had no time to continue installation, but will come back to this topic with more feedback about my progress. To be continued
