    Installing Sierra on a Skylake Notebook

    Just gave the latest clover a try, ticked verbose option, booted 10.12.1 USB Install, though im having no whatsoever output, blank screen and no computer activity. Never had this issue before, but i know it still is not kicking into macOS, is this a UEFI Drivers issue? Also, im using the default config.plist.

    Installing Sierra on a Skylake Notebook

    No worries, this is at least my 5th machine that i "hackintosh" with. I am very comfortable with clover in UEFI environment. Got the USB with clover ready, only looking for some tips for config.plist and if any mandatory kext is needed. I did all the steps of the above with El Capitan, hence my awful experience, although it booted fine with just gui artifacts and an unsupported wifi card, it just didnt feel as stable as my 1st gen i5 Dell hackie. Keep us posted please. Although, even when i install clover, i do it completely manual, i never go for the installer, i use the clover iso images and manually twiddle with the EFI partition (most of the time, in Windows).
  3. Hi guys, Im trying to load Sierra on my Lenovo e560 (i5-6200u, intel hd 520), from my El Capitan trial, getting it to work was a hellish task, although i've read Sierra is a bit better in this case. What are the "must-do" cases for Skylake, especially for the Notebooks. Mandatory kexts? PS, i've searched, but i seriously could not find any compiled page with all the necessities.

    Bootdisk Utility

    cvad, quick question. I have a weird working laptop that seems to be able to only boot from the main hard drive. nothing else boots, no matter what i change on the bios. Anyway, i have a UEFI/GPT Winodws 10 on it, with the usual Windows 10 GPT layout (non-standard, EFI is 2nd partition, and just 100MB). While i have managed to create an installer on the disk itself, it successfully injected the Windows Boot Manager to the UEFI boot list. So, i grabbed a Clover ISO and copied it's content on the EFI partition where the windows boot manager is, however, it is not detected (remember, whatever i change in bios, it doesnt stick). I was thinkinh, can BDU somehow detect internal EFI partition and actually load Clover there (very optionally) and also inject UEFI entries through Windows? It seems there is no way to get Clover on the boot list.

    eSata worked for me, both in the laptop interface and the dock.

    and i can confirm that, i've found 128GB's but they are PATA/IDE, and all the advertised mPCIe SATA SSD's are mSata. And the sellers have used this confusion a lot, and still do. I was about to order from alibaba, and on the last second i noticed the msata in a different specs page, but the title did not mention it. Very unfortunate indeed, i cannot see the point of the absence of such technology. Actually i meant the hardware specs from dell, there seem to be a few submodels of e6410, some have i7 some i5, some have nvidia gpu's and some dont. nvm, having a headache here and things are flying off me. i'll PM you my dsdt laster as we seem to have a similar device (except wifi), also, are you using Clover right?

    can you share the specs of your e6410? @ thread I just read that the ENCR (Latitude ON) and WWAN mPCIe interfaces have no white-listing, many people report having Windows running smoothly on it mPCIe SSD's. Does OS X support booting there? Those tiny cards have their own SATA Controllers inside, should the be normally visible to OS X/Clover just like it was for the BIOS/UEFI right?

    The machine i have, used to be from a bankrupted organization. I knew the IT guy i got it from and told me that he had to change the disk at least once a year. I did read a few threads at the dell community forums as well, mainly with bios 03 version. Ironically, he used one for himself and said that SSD weren't affected. Sounds a lot like a power failure. Of course, i may be wrong, but in the last 2 years, i had 3 disks dying inside it, but it never came in to my mind that only the Main HDD slot is where the victims lay.

    I dont have an SSD at all, but people noticed the different behaviour between SSD and HDD...a lot of e6410 owners report magnetic disks degrading way too rapidly. I switched the disks as i wanted to see if OS X has any benefit of detecting itself as Internal and not External, so the problems came a few weeks after i put it on the HDD Shelf.

    I have a very general question regarding this machine, and i just research and found some supporting reports...bare with me. People, whom received the E6410 with Bios 03 (probably the earliest versions), have reported damaged disks, and quite consistently...after a few bios updates, apparently the symptom rared but did not disappear. I had the laptop with a 300GB disk inside, after 3 months of windows on it, voila, huge delays in response, and every second boot wouldnt make it, but no errors, typical I/O issues from hard drives. Later on, i got a 500GB on it, and as i described earlier, i got rid of the Optical drive and got a caddy to use a 2nd HDD. Loaded OS X most of the time there, and never had problems, while after a while, the Windows on 500GB started to behave weird once again. Being annoyed by the fact that the Optical sata interface (where the caddy is) is detected as external, i took the risk and switched the HDD's locations, OS X on official HDD place, Windows on caddy. Guess what, last night i watched Deadpool, shut down the machine, turned it on again in the morning, just to see that El capitan wont boot (recovery partition works, so does the EFI as clover loads). A report i read is that SSDs are not affected... anyone suffered something similar, Dell officially does not acknowledge this bug. EDIT: neither Recovery nor USB booting fixes this, Disk Utility is going more retarded with every release, but even FSCK is useless as it cant fix the issue

    @duduclx i noticed your Sleep fix in your DSDT fixes, however, it does not look like the machine is getting any sleep. screen turns off, but machine is just as loud as working, the fans dont turn off. Could it be that the fix is not intended for i5-M520 as yours is an i7? Also, is any of these fixes worth it (see attachment), i noticed some of them are similar to yours, but shorter. I found it somewhere in Olarila, but cant seem to find it again. PS, how come mouse movement doesnt wake the display? very odd... Latitude E6410.txt

    Yup, that must be it, cant find it in /S/L/E, looks like i retarded for a second... Please, if you dont mind upload it somewhere... EDIT: dont bother, extracted it from the installer usb. EDIT2: working flawlessly...sound seems to mute halfway through while lowering, but nothing fun breaking there...thanks a lot for this one .

    yes, i got rid all of the Dummy stuff before i went for VoodooHDA. And i did get rid of the hdadisabler after removing voodoohda. I noticed i had the 3 kext patches on clover, removed them, restarted, but to no success, no sound unfortunately. System Report detects it as ID 3 under Intel High Definition Audio, is this due to the flag in clover to use Intel HDMI?

    It doesnt seem to work for me, i placed it in clover's kexts folder. It also loads as i can see it in kextstat.

    Check out my config.plist a few pages behind, have a look at the Graphics values, i did some EDID fixes which resulted on all Video Ports working on Dock (and laptop vga too). Thanks for the AppleALC hint. Tell me, does the volume bar, and buttons do anything? with VoodooHDA i can move the slider with mouse and keyboard/shortcuts, but it does not affect the sound at all.
