  1. the 210m drivers aren't available in MAC OS X. so that's a no go. they are only available for Winblows and Linux. I think I'm just gonna get an ATI Radeon chip that MAC OS X support drivers for it, pull out this Nvidia and be done with it, if that's possible. the NVidia 3100M ever working 100% perfectly without having to do all this stuff is a lost cause.
  2. [GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410

    I will read more about the CI/QE. it just seemed from the way everyone talked about it, it was just a temporary solution/band-aid, and that everyone was reluctant to use it. thanks for the compliments, been up 20 out of 24 hours every day since Thursday desperately trying to get this going, but I can see that's not gonna happen any time soon. I was really only calling it a POS chip because I can't make it work the way I want it too lol. Would it be feasible to find a MAC compliant ATI Radeon chipset and install it with the MAC drivers?
  3. [GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410

    I can't even find the files for CI/QE. Isn't CI/QE just a band-aid solution? From what I've read that's what it seems like to me. You lose features like sleep, you have to type things in at the boot prompt to get it to load a certain way. I've only been at this for a week, so I don't know a whole lot about all of this, just using my pc experience (i know this is completely different language and processes) and what I'm reading as a guide. I don't understand how I was closer if it was crashing, as opposed to be further away now that it's not? I will keep at this. Although I am just contemplating ordering an ATI Radeon chip that has MAC drivers and is compatible with this motherboard, and just swapping this POS Nvidia chip out and being done with it all. It's becoming a headache, and with all the techno smart people out there, I can't believe for the life of me someone doesn't have this god damn NVidia driver working by now.
  4. ok, I have confirmed the NVIDIA 3100 is loaded and functional. I tested the screensaver and it didn't lock up the computer or send it into a kernel panic, so that's good news. However, it was slow and a bit choppy, which tells me the bugs still need to be worked out and the kexts need to be tweaked for optimum performance. I tested sleep, it did not work at all, however, I haven't really messed around with any of the KEXTS for that, so I may not have the proper settings for that yet. Screenshots are still not working. I tried CMD-Shift-4 and CMD Shift-3. I can hear the camera sound when I do it, but it doesn't post a jpeg, png or tiff on the desktop, so I'm not sure if that's video/graphics card related or not. Hoping others from the other E6410 and E6510 threads will come chime in, duplicate what I've managed to do and tweak things a bit to smooth this bad boy out and getting it working 100%.

  6. NVidia 3100M Graphics Card Tonight was a breakthrough on the graphics card. :headbang: I honestly don't know how big a of a breakthrough, but something is better than nothing. It needs some tweaking by more skilled people than I, but I think it's a start on the right track! I have tried every combination of NVEnabler.kext NVInject.kext ntatit.kext NVEnable 64.kext removing one file, adding another, changing keys and strings to the com.boot.apple.plist file. I tried every possible combo and nothing worked. then I stumbled across this http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=102 NVDANV50Hal.kext - One of three very important original Apple kexts required by OSx86 machines for nvidia graphics functionality. This kext provides support for 8xxx and 9xxx series nvidia cards. the bold part specifically caught my eye. Why was a 8xxx and 9xxx nvidia kexter loading when I'm trying to get an Nvidia 3100M graphics kexter to load and recognize? So from there I deducted that MAC OS X was in effect loading the wrong driving and kicking out the NVEnable and NVInject and natit kexts, which is why the system would kernel panic. my deduction was confirmed when I looked at my kernel log and I saw this line. Aug 20 00:03:33 localhost kernel[0]: NVDANV50HAL loaded and registered. this confirmed my deduction, the NVDANV50HAL was loading and kicking all the other NVidia Kexter's out, and put the system into kernel panic, because there was too many kexters trying to tell the system what to do (or something along those lines at least). so on a straight experimental hunch because I figured I had absolutely nothing to lose and the NVDANV50HAL was making me suspicious as to it's real purpose, here's what I did. (do a Time Machine Backup before you do this!!!!!) From Safe Mode I deleted from the S/L/E folder NVDANV40HAL.kext (make a backup of it) NVDANV50HAL.kext (make a backup of it!) NVEnabler_64.kext (if you have it loaded) the only NV* kexts that should be in the System/Library/Extensions Folder are NVEnabler.kext NVinject.kext Natit.kext once they are applied with the kext program, go to /Extras/Extensions and delete your original com.apple.boot.plist file (make sure you make a copy of it and store it in a safe place first. copy your modified com.apple.boot.plist to the desktop and edit it so it looks like this <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>/Extra/mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=x86_64</string> <key>dsdt</key> <string>/Extra/dsdt.aml</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>No</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1440x900x32</string> <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(0,2)</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>1</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>yes</string> <key>PciRoot</key> <string>1</string> </dict> </plist> now copy this modified com.apple.boot.plist to the Extras/Extensions Folder note: the contents of the com.apple.boot.plist may not be 100% accurate, this is just what I had at the time that all of this started working for me. So if you need to tweak and experiment, do it and see what you come up with. now close everything out and reboot. When you reboot, let it go as far it can. It will most likely Kernel Panic on you. if it does, reboot again, except this time when the chameleon screen comes up, hit enter for my options. then type -f -s -v and hit enter a bunch of lines of code will pop up, just let it do it's thing. when it's completely done it will give you a few lines of code, then it says if you're done to exit. type exit and hit enter. now hit the down arrow key on your keyboard and watch the magic!!! a bunch of crazy stuff will start happening, it should boot into windows, once it does click your apple icon on the top left corner, click About this MAC, then go down to Graphics/Display and verify the VRAM is correct. Before I did this mine was showing: VRAM: 32MB afterwards as seen in the picture it's now showing the accurate VRAM: 512MB Now to confirm it's good, close everything, reboot, and it should boot back into Snow Leopard on it's own without any error messages or going into a kernel panic!!!! Here's the proof in the pudding! this isn't the full on end all fix, but we're headed back in the right direction. I tried to go to youtube.com and I couldn't watch any videos on there, I could only hear the music. I attempted to update my flash player but it said it was up to date. I cleared cache and internet files and restarted my broswer but that didn't help either. I went to google and typed in flash games, but none of them I could see the picture on. so there's still some tweaking to do, but I'd venture to say this is might be a major break through on the NVDIA 3100M!!!!! It will need the attention of those more qualified than I to iron the rest of it out.

  10. Dell Latitude E6510 DSDT

    If anyone wants to provide input in the Nvidia 3100 graphics card issue on the E6410/E6510 and other laptop's, feel free to join in here. I'm having the same issues as everyone else, but I know there has to be a way to make the Nvidia 3100 work properly without having to use QE/CI. Not a matter of "if" it gets figured out, it's just a matter of when it gets figured out http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...amp;mode=linear also feel free to check out the tutorial in my sig for further info.
  11. kernel panic also occurs when attempting to introduce NVEnabler 64.kext by itself without the support of Natit.kext or NVInject.kext and running com.apple.boot.plist with <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> rebooted into safe mode and added natit.kext nvinject.kxt rebooted and got a kernel panic. rebooted into safe mode. changed com.apple.boot.plist for 64bit <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=x86_64</string> rebooted and system suffered a kernel panic again. rebooted into safe mode and removed NVInject.kext NVEnabler.kext Natit.kext and rebooted, system stable, but still not graphics. ------------------- interesting observation. when looking at the kernel.log (download the E6510 logs.zip above and view the kernel.text and use the find function) I see a line that says NVDANV50Hal loaded and registered. further research from http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=102 NVDANV50Hal.kext - One of three very important original Apple kexts required by OSx86 machines for nvidia graphics functionality. This kext provides support for 8xxx and 9xxx series nvidia cards. so possibly this driver is loading beforing any of the needed Nvidia kexts can load, and then kicking the others out?
  12. a kernel panic occurs whenver NVEnabler.kext NVinject.kext natit.kext are introduced to the system. Remove these three and the kernel panic goes away. I tried to add these as attachments but it wouldn't allow me to. so i'm entering them as code here. so here's a zip file of all 4 logs that I found relevant. Kernel.log install.log system.log windowserver.log if someone needs any others, just let me know, I desperately want to get this working http://www.datafilehost.com/download-a0ac38c5.html
  13. I have my Dell Latitude E6510 almost completely up and running. The only major thing left standing in the way is getting the NVIDIA 3100 NVS 512MB Video Chip to work. I've searched high and low, and I can't seem to find a solution that works. I am running MAC OS X 10.6.8 Full Retail I added the NVInject.kext NVenabler.kext Natit.kext with a Kexter Program. and rebooted (i did all of this after making a Time Machine backup). it boots to the Grey Apple Screen with the apple in the center and then the spinning dial just turns for about 45-60 seconds then the screen goes opaque and I get the message "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button until it turns off, then press the Power Button again." so I rebooted, and type -x to go into safe mode and it thankfully went into safe mode so I can still work on finding a solution. I've tried adding the following lines to the com.apple.Boot.plist file <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>y</string> <key>PciRoot</key> <string>1</string> and that didn't resolve the issue either and I still get the error message "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button until it turns off, then press the Power Button again." MaLd0n made me a DSDT for my machine earlier over on InsanelyMac. but the video still doesn't work or recognize. is there something I'm not doing? or something I'm missing here? or just doing improperly? I'm totally lost here. specs on my machine are in my sig, and so is the link to my tutorial on my install on my E6510. any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Installing Modified DSDT File I have received my DSDT from MaLd0n Before doing anything I made sure to do a Time Machine Backup I deleted my DSDT.aml from my /Extras folder (had to password authenticate) rebooted (it rebooted without any problems) then I ran the DSDT Auto Patcher (found here: http://olarila.com/auto-patcher/DSDT_Auto-Patcher.zip) Selected Dell Latitude E6510 as my system then selected the modified dsdt.aml file that MaLd0n provided me with and then I clicked Patch copied my modifed DSDT file into /Extra's and rebooted. no problems. Tethered Internet Connection Works I used my Android Phone paired with a Purchased copy of PDANet 2.43 for MAC Desktop/PC with Android Phone Installed PDAnet to my mac and rebooted installed PDANet to my Android phone Connected my phone to the Hackintosh via usb to miniusb cable I did get an error message stating "this device is not recognized by the computer" but I just clicked ignore turned on my 3G WiFI connection on my Android Phone Started PDANet on my phone went to Settings/Applications/Development and turned on USB Debugging Clicked on the PDA net icon in my menu bar and clicked on Connect and opened up a Firefox broswer and I'm now on the internet.... :clap: more info on PDANet w/ Android Phone on MAC Desktop/Laptop to be found here http://junefabrics.com/android/mac.php Here's for iPhone w/ MAC Desktop/Laptop http://junefabrics.com/iphone/index.php
  15. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    sorry im new at all this, but what was funny? will put the modified DSDT.aml in the Extra folder will using the AppleHDADisabler kill my audio?
