A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial. And Hervé from insanelymac for using is modified DSDT.aml for E6320 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Latitude E6320 – This is necessary to install macOS Sierra for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.12 to – For me, I used a 500GB HDD to install 10.12 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor. E6320_V2.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. 3.

Download OS X Sierra Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. Once macOS Sierra is downloaded, close the install pop-up that appears using Command (⌘)+Q. The application INSTALL macOS Sierra will appear in /Applications Done! 5. Prepare bootable USB Installer Note on flash drives: You will need a USB flash drive to make this work. Your USB should be at least 8GB and a USB 3.0 drive is preferred. Kingston sells an 8GB USB 3.0 drive for less than 10 euro. Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Make sure that the disk you choose to use doesn't contain anything that you want to keep, because the following tutorial will purge everything on the drive. Open Finder - Applications and right-click on Install macOS Sierra and select Show Package Contents. Open Contents - Resources. Open a Terminal window thru Applications - Utilities - Terminal. In the Terminal window type sudo followed by a space. Drag the createinstallmedia file from the finder window opened in Step 4 to the Terminal Window. Type --volume followed by a space. Connect your USB drive and drag the USB drive into the Terminal Window. Type --applicationpath in the Terminal followed by a space. Open Finder - Applications and drag the Install macOS Sierra into the Terminal Window. Press Return on the keyboard to submit the full command. Type a 'Y' to continue when prompted to do so, and press Return on your keyboard The install process will begin by erasing the contents of your USB disk and copying the installer files to the USB disk.

Start>Run (or Windows key on your keyboard plus R). diskmgmt.msc (press enter after typing that) Find your drive, right-click on it, and go to Shrink Volume. Wait for it to calculate the amount of space you can make your partition, and enter in your amount (for an exact GB amount, multiple your desired amount of GB times 1024, so a 20GB partition would be 20480MB). Let it make your partition. It will show up as unallocated space. Format the new unallocated space as NTFS and give it a label (mine was Mavericks). Done! 5. Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk (USB) Start OSX Maqvericks, Mountain (Lion) or Snow Leopard to prepare your USB Flash drive Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive thru Disk Utility in Mac OS X: Extract the zip file Install_E6320.zip to your Mac OS X desktop If you don't have already installed myHack then copy from folder "Install_E6320" myHack-3.3.1 to your desktop and launch myHack and follow the steps Plug your USB Drive into your computer, and start myHack. Enter your Mac OS X password when the app begins, and setup process will begin. When myHack prompts you, select “Create OS X Installer” and Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk”. Select your USB Drive as the installation destination (mine is named “E6320”). myHack will ask you for the location of your copy of OS X 10.9 Mavericks. It’s usually faster to “Browse Manually” for the Mavericks installation app. myHack will begin to set up your installer USB Drive. Click “Ok” when myHack asks to erase your USB Drive, so that it can begin the setup process. From here, the setup process is pretty automatic. myHack will erase your USB Drive, copy the contents of the Mavericks installer app onto it, and then modify those contents to be bootable on a PC. Near the end of the process, myHack will ask you whether you want to apply the MBR patch to the USB Drive. Click “Yes” if you plan on installing Mac OS X on a hard drive where windows is already installed or “No” if you wanna installing Mac OS X on the entire hard drive. This entire process should take about 10 – 15 minute, though it may take up an hour if your USB Drive is slow. 6. Adding the Extra folder to your USB drive Now, we need to put the Extra directory for the E6320 on the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Start myHack, Enter your Mac OS X password when the app begins. When myHack prompts you, select “Install Extra”. myHack will ask you “Select target volume to run myHack on…”, choose your “myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk” and choose “Ok”. myHack will prompt you “Do you want to use the generic Extra that comes with myHack or specify tour own?” choose “Use My Own” and press “Ok”. Browse to your early extracted “Install_E6320 – Extra” folder on your desktop and choose “Open”. myHack will copy the Extra folder to your “myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk”. When finished you will see the message "myHack Finished" press ok and Quit to close myHack. Eject all mounted drives (this is not necessary) Eject your USB Drive 10. Done ! 7. Bios Settings Dell Latitude E6320 Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OSX Mavericks. Start your Dell Latitude and press F2 to get into the Bios. In the main screen click on "Load Defaults", the bios will be reset to default settings. Go to General - Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting. Go then to System Configuration - SATA Operation and choose on the right for AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing OSX Mavericks. 8.

During boot you will see the message “Eread Bios error” ignore it the USB Drive goes further to boot to the OS X Mavericks Installer. Once you get into the installer (assuming your computer didn’t freeze, restart itself, or get a kernel panic), choose your partition or Hard Disk to install OSX Mavericks to. NOTE : when you install it on a partition skip step 5 - 10 see Chapter 4. (If you install Mavericks on the entire Hard disk follow the steps below ) In the installer open up Disk Utility. Click on your Hard Drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Erase tab in the middle. Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)” as the format, and give your drive a label (like “MAVERICKS”). Click on the Erase… button. Done close Disk Utility and go further with the installation process. Choose your HDD or Partition to install Mavericks to. The installation process will take about 23 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD. myHack will then ask to remove a couple of unnecessary kext files—click “Yes” for all of them. myHack will also prompt you to install an “Extra” folder. Choose the second option, which lets you install your “Extra” folder. Select the “Extra” folder from your USB Drive, and wait for the installer to finish. When finished remove your USB Drive and boot to your new OSX Mavericks. 9. Booting OSX Mavericks! Now that everything is finally prepared, you can go ahead and boot into OSX Mavericks. Thanks to myHack, you should be able to boot to OS X Mavericks from your laptop’s hard drive immediately. You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for OSX Mavericks.

Install Wlan driver for the TL-WN725N The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK. The software is straight forward and installs without problems, the only thing is that after login the wireless app starts up and you have must close it every time, therefore I have made a script to launch the program after login and close it after 5 seconds.
