    Mojave on Dell Latitude E6410

    Sorry I've been out of town and didn't take this laptop with me to play with. However, when I initially asked it was because I could never get clover to work UEFI, and was thinking maybe you had. (It seems perhaps some of the issues might be easier to resolve with UEFI as it gives the OS more information to work with for the components.) I did however try a Yosemite (Only full installer I had available at the time) install USB formatted GPT with Clover (EFI -- Fat32). Booting, was unable to boot from it. Had to use El Capitan Legacy boot to clover. In clover chose Yosemite install. When it came to reboot, the legacy clover was unable to launch from HDD (didn't have spare SSD to install to). Still could not get Yosemite USB to initialize clover. Tried this: Removed all drives Left Yosemite (UEFI) & El Capitan (Legacy) plugged in. Launched clover from Legacy USB -- launched shell -- removed Legacy USB. Listed all disks, found the efi partition. Created a boot config for it. Rebooted, tried to f12 launch, no success. Then tried adding boot option in BIOS (manually point to clover efi). Also no bootable device detected. From research it appears due to EFI being second partition on the drive, unlike Linux or Windows where it is generally first. Did find an article where someone claimed to get UEFI boot working on an E6410. Will edit this post and link article later (if I can find it again) as maybe you will understand what steps they might have taken based on the comments in order to replicate results. https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/74xhka/latitude_e6410_with_1013_booting_from_filevaulted/

    Also a bit of research into sleep/hibernate on a SSD led me to this: http://bit.ly/2WHOmjm (I was using Win 7 -- prior to final release; with a first gen Kingston 30GB SSD. While this SSD has come back to life, I've never ventured into sleep/hibernate with a SSD again) So once we can figure out the install (with a simplified installation guide for Mojave) on similar hardware E6410s and find/fix the sleep/hibernate issue, I will be more than happy to attempt replication of said on a fresh install to a SSD rather than a HDD. And to be clear as crystal -- you are booting clover from UEFI not legacy right? (As current, my El Capitan is booting from Clover only in legacy; everything else is an EFI boot -- even within clover).

    Mojave on Dell Latitude E6410

    Ok. Will be grateful to attempt MacOS Mojave install on my E6410. (Also) To accommodate for testing/(fixing) sleep issues, I have a spare HDD to put in place of the SSD. [For sake of testing will also replace modular bay with optical drive -- thus dealing with only 1 storage drive and 1 optical drive]. My WiFi card was previously an almost vanilla card, so if it works great -- if not can replace to match yours (assuming it will work on Ubuntu when finished playing with Mojave install). However for the remainder of this endeavor please treat me as a noob (my apologies). While I have been building computers since '97 and am extremely proficient within Windows, decently proficient within Linux, I am a beginner to "advanced" Hackintosh. I've used Apple OS nearly all my life, however most "Hackintosh" I've built have been nearly vanilla or using a simple fix method like the beast (which cannot apply here). That said, what steps did you take differently from steps #1-#9 of the aforementioned El Capitan guide? (I've never done ACPI extraction before -- I assume this guide "Patching LAPTOP DSDT/SSDTs" is still a good resource?) Any (& all) guidance you would be willing to lend would be appreciated! I look forward to getting the E6410 on Mojave (and with sleep/hibernate working as should be on a HDD -- sorry, still unsure of doing it on a SSD), and eventually end up with a very solid triple-boot system with all the latest OS' installed and flawlessly working.

    My E6410 is similar in build to yours. Mine is: Dell Latitude E6410 (i5-520m, NVS 3100M, 8GB DDR3 -- Dual 4GB Sticks, 1x OCZ-Vertex 120GB SSD -- MacOS & 1x Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD -- Windows 10 1903/Ubuntu Desktop 18.04, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17, Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM4322 -- Dell Wireless 1510, Bluetooth: BCM92046DG-CL1ROM -- Broadcom 2046 -- Targus). Any suggestions as to things I would have to change (Kexts/Settings/Etc) from your install guide of Mojave to make it work? Thanks for your help in keeping this awesome little laptop current!

    [GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410 Nvidia El Capitan Clover [ENG]

    I currently do not use sleep on my Latitude E6410. I use (x2) ssd(s) on my laptop. [Currently drive #1 is MacOS El Capitan -- following this guide, with several issues I have yet to take the time to resolve; Drive #2 is a dual boot drive with Windows 10 1903 & Ubuntu desktop 18.04] SSD & Sleep/Hibernate (maybe only used to???) kill an ssd drive. (Really don't want to take that chance). A side note, as per your specs on your post of Mojave install, my E6410 is similar in build to yours. Mine is: Dell Latitude E6410 (i5-520m, NVS 3100M, 8GB DDR3 -- Dual 4GB Sticks, 1x OCZ-Vertex 120GB SSD -- MacOS & 1x Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD -- Windows 10 1903/Ubuntu Desktop 18.04, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17, Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM4322 -- Dell Wireless 1510). Any suggestions as to things I would have to change from your install guide of Mojave to make it work? (I will also post this question on that thread) Thanks for your help in keeping this awesome little laptop current!
