  1. Didn't someone said there will be a full guide here somewhere? I am running Lion GM on my Dell N5110 and currently only few things are not working. 1. The nVidia GT 525M GraphicsCard - Don't know if it will ever be supported. 2. The Wireless - easily fixed by getting an external USB wireless from Edimax. 3. My Touchpad Mouse. - This is a strange one because I had it working on Lion DP3, but since I installed GM I am not able to get it working. Did someone manage to find a fix for either of these issues? I would like to have at least my mouse working. Would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hello, I have a DELL (R15) N5110 notebook which has HD3000 as one of its graphics cards. I have installed Lion DP4 on it, and it has this 5 sec delay. This was not happening on Lion DP3. I wanted to ask if someone can help in fixing this issue. my table is not like the one on this post. My nm command produced something a bit different. 00000000000c5a9 t __GLOBAL__D_PlatformInformationList which I believe the address was 0x0c5a9 + 4096 =54697 My table is different, so can this technique be used the same? and how do I know which connector is causing the problem. I would appreciate any help.
  3. Your welcom. FYI, my model is an Israel one, so maybe they have different specs for different countries, that is why they claim it doesn't have both cards, but I think a Model should be the same everywhere. Best of luck.
  4. Thats correct here is an HTML export from SIW that will show you all the hardware I have on this machine. Hardware.html
  5. I have this Norebook and I have installed Lion on it. Everything works fine except for Wifi and Nvidia which I hope someone will soon find a solution for it. you can always buy a USB supported wifi. Currently 32bit mode is the best although everythings works as well in 64bit mode accepts the Realtek LAN PCIe PE RTL8167 (8136). Works in 32bit mode. Built in camera works! sound works! USB 2&3 Works. I Found thet the best way to go for Lion is use a Chameleon RC5 Boot loader Latest, Chimera did not work for Lion but is good for 10.6.8 Most of the 10.6.8 KEXT will work on Lion. Just use any of the Guides out there. Also look for a file called Lion.pkg and Extra.pkg these are important to install onto the installation USB stick prior to be able to boot. I also used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] latest to start things going. Boot firstly with Kernel Flags -v -f arch=i386 cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No after install you can remove the -f, and then edit your boot.plist, I use for this NB "arch=i386 cpus=1 busratio=20 GraphicsEnabler=No ForceWake=Yes". I used VoodooHDA2.27 for Sound. AppleRTL8169.kext for Lan - this need to be modified in Info.plist, change all 0x8xxxxx to be 0x816710ec 0x813610ec. Intel HD3000 should work OOB. I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] just to install the USB3 NEC + USB Rollback. Also VoodooPS2 for keyboard and mouse. FakeSMC and few others which are explained in the N5110 install guides out there. Hope this helps, if you find a solution for the wifi or Nvidia 525M GT please let us know. I would like to help on this, but don't know where to begin on how to create a kext package or EFI string or DSDT.aml file. A guide on this would help.
  6. Which of the Graphics is working? The HD3000 or the Nvidia? I have tried it with my Lion install, but currently WhenI use GraphicsEnabler=Yes, it stays on the Gray loading Bg prior to the login screen. I can boot with the Flag set to No. Is this DSDT will work for Lion? Thanks again for your help. I have full Lion installed on this NB, everything is working except Nvidia & Wife Centrino 1030.
  7. I finally Got Lion installed on my Dell Inspiron N5110 NB. Currently Everything is working great in 32bit mode. Got the following working: Intel HD3000 Graphics Realtek PCIe FE (8167) USB 2 & 3 Built-In Cam Keyboard & Trackpad Mouse DVD-RW Battery Sound VoodooHDA 2.72 Not Working Yet: Nvidia Geforce GT 525M Wifi Centrino Wireless-N 1030 Hopefully someone out there will soon have kext for them and then it will be a prefect MacBookPro.
  8. Snow Leopard on a Dell Inspiron N5110

    OK I finally got Lion Installed on my DELL Inspiron N5110 Core i7 8GB NB. So far everything is working Smoothly running in 32bit arch=i386 mode. Running arch=x86_64 seems to make this laptop run a bit slower and has occasional sudden reboot for no reason. Intel HD3000 Graphics is working good with setting the GraphicsEnabler=No in boot.plist nVidia GF 525M GT is not working Network LAN Realtek PCIe FE Family (8167 chip) is also not working, tried everything, still not supported as far as I know. Wifi Not Working Bluetooth is Working. Keyboard and Touchpad work great! Sound works Flawlessly with VoodooHDA.2.7.2 Even the NB fn buttons work and behave like a MacBookPro. Did anyone managed to get the Network working?
  9. Pleeeeeeease a guide . Also what is a Lion -> GM? What version of Lion did you use? DP4?
  10. I got the same problem. Currently I can only run the 10.6.3, however I have no network, neither the wifi nor the Lan cards are working, also sound not working. Its strange that 10.6.3 can run on it, but more updated version do not. Well guess I`ll have to wait until someone with more experience will take this NB as a project. Thanks for the info.
  11. I have the same notebook Dell Inspiron N5110 i7 8GB, however I am only able to run OSX 10.6.3 using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. I tried everything to install the combo 10.6.8 using different guides in few forums but with no success. The boot process either hangs on nVidia card or with the GraphicsEnabler=No -v it hangs on jnl journal replay done. Can you please help. A more specific guide would help, also knowing exactly what kext did you use to get this working. I would love to install Lion if there a guide for this dell notebook. Would appreciate any help.
