  1. Need for dsdt of dell vostro 1015

    Hi Marksmart and MaLd0n, I'm busy doing a Vostro 1015.. Snow Leopard.. maybe Lion (or ML?). Do either of you have a good selection of kexts and boot.plist for that model? Thanks for the DSDT MaLd0n.
  2. Asking Help on dell D620 + iatkos v7

    Yes, Snow Leopard is your best bet.. Though it's good that you have Leopard installed, because you can use it to make a USB installer for Snow Leopard. I recommend using only external USB devices for now until you are sure you have a method that works. Then use that method on the internal hard drive. See my D620 guide + files at kexts.com Extra D620 10.6.8.zip I recently tested this with 10.6.3 and it works. "Dell D620 'Extra' folder Full working¹ solution for D620 running Snow Leopard 10.6.6 thru 10.6.8 ¹Note: only for D620's with GMA950 27A2 card. ie. it probably won't work with GMA950 27AE, and definitely not NVIDIA X3100. It has worked on all Dell D620's (GMA950 27A2) that I've tried, except for a particular one.. ☠ Instructions:  Install MacOS 10.6.8 / 7 / 6 (possibly earlier) to an external USB device on another Mac / Hack²  Drop this folder into the root (or create a folder called Extra at the root and copy the contents of my Extra into it)  Install latest Chameleon to the device (you should probably repair it's permissions at this point)  Plug the stick into the Dell (back ports are best). Start the Dell and press F2 to enter setup. In "Boot Options" set it to boot from USB device. You should now have a bootable Dell D620 to install / clone to / from. For creating a working installer, it's the same procedure except you have a cloned image of the InstallDVD on a USB to start with rather than an installation. ²Useful tip for Dell D6xx owners The hard drive is very interchangeable - just undo the two screws on the bottom and the drive slips out of the side.. Now all you need is a SATA to USB adaptor or an external 2.5" drive casing You can install or clone MacOS to the drive using a real Mac or Hackintosh. Contains:  EFI string for GMA950 in boot.plist  DSDT.aml  com.apple.boot.plist with many tweaks  kexts carefully selected for 10.6.8 on D620 Thanks to Leppy and his original guide. I'm not sure how much of it I'm still using in here (it's a mish-mash of solutions, none of which worked on their own) - but his was the well-written basis for getting this working. "
  3. Thanks for your infamous guide Leppy - much appreciated. It was the blueprint for many a base install. I had issues, but they were finally resolved, so I'm giving back my working solution without too much explanation (seeing as it was pure trial and error). Hi there all D620 GMA950 (27A2) owners, I have uploaded an Extra folder. It has all the goodies needed for 10.6 up to version 10.6.8 (tested from 10.6.6) on Dell Latitude D620 GMA950 (27A2 only). Simply including this folder at the drive root + AsereBLN bootloader, Voodoo HDA, Voodoo PS2 keyboard and trackpad will give you a very sweet system. Read the blurb below for more info. Note (just in case): Lion install is not possible on many D620's without upgrading the CPU. It may show as Core2Duo, but it's really only a CoreDuo (32bit). Use CPU-X to find actual CPU model. Notes: ~≈ D620 GMA950 (27A2) + MacOS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 ≈~ This is an Extra folder packed with solutions* to get a Dell D620, running Snow Leopard 10.6.6 thru 10.6.8, to have working GMA950 27A2 card. ie. it probably won't work with GMA950 27AE, and definitely not NVIDIA X3100.

I have been told that later Chameleon versions will further improve the system (if that's possible). I have been cautious to try, but will resume experimentation shortly and post my findings.
