  1. Hi, Finally, I upgraded to Sierra. I attached my Clover files and kexts Working - keyboard - wifi - sound Not Working - Bluetooth (handoff). --( this is now working. ) - Battery display Cheers! clover_Sierra.zip
  2. I tried installing Sierra, it is working, but needs new sets of kexts. some functionality is not working or just plain slow. I did not test it in detail because I now need new battery - it keeps getting intermittent sleep. ( after further reading, this is not related to battery) With speed/performance, it can still handle sierra well. Drivers are not guaranteed to be available though. And Quadro is still supported. El Capitan/Yosemite is still the best on this machine.
  3. Hi Grumpycat1984, of course. Post #3 has the files you need for Clover boot. Note: I changed my wifi to BCM94352HMB. The stock wifi does not support handshake. I have i7-2920xm cpu, Feel free to post your questions here.

    DSDT for Dell Precision M4600

    I believe it is the wak and pst. To get it working you need to patch your whole DSDT/SSDT. Patch script can be found here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307740-need-help-install-yosemite-on-dell-precision-m6600/?p=2201984

    DSDT for Dell Precision M4600

    Hi Adam55, Good job in making your audio work better. For the battery info: if you are particular about the mAh, google "Yosemite on Dell M6600...a bit of help kapone". In the thread (not in the google result), check page 2 onward. If you want to dive deep into the code, check ECG9 and ECG6 methods in your DSDT. Compare it to the DSDT methods (attached file) on the link below: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307740-need-help-install-yosemite-on-dell-precision-m6600/page-2?do=findComment&comment=2201404 For the USB ... I really want to help you, but I am really hard pressed on something right now. However, I remember some laptops had this issue in Yosemite as well. Look into those thread to get some idea. Nice progress kishine, Note: it is really great that you were able to fix your AppleHDA.kext. It would be great too if you upload your AppleHDA kext here - for future reference.

    DSDT for Dell Precision M4600

    Hi Adam55, * SD is not working (The VoodooSDHC is not working for me) - Same here, I have no plan in using it at this moment. Check in the last link I gave, I think Ocelas had it working. At 10.11.3, maybe updated kext is needed. * I still have to use the NullCPUPowerManagement - As you have said, it is an Apple kext issue. * When I attach some USB disks they all show as internal - I am not using El Capitan. Last time I checked during the Christmas Break on 10.11.2, my usb2.0 is getting recognized properly. * The previous AppleHDA provided by you stopped working after updating to 10.11.3 so I replaced it with newer VoodooHDA, seems that it hasn't got the kernel panic on boot problem. - Check Mirone's latest AppleHDA patch. I read it somewhere here. Just look for it. * There isn't any solution for sleep issues. * WiFi is not working. - I had mine working before I replaced it with Broadcom. I lost my note on this, sorry you have to research this on your own for now. The earliest I can play/upgrade my laptop is on March Break. I am currently using it and can't play with it. * I think HDMI audio is working (at least it is as option in Sound output) - cool * I haven't tested other functionalities but I think that nothing else have been improved. - For me, Yosemite is running great. It is up to you if you want a bleeding edge machine. Good luck kishine

    DSDT for Dell Precision M4600

    Hi Adam55, It is pretty much the same as m6600. I think you can pretty much use most of the kexts on the link below: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307740-need-help-install-yosemite-on-dell-precision-m6600/?p=2189333 However, please do lots of testing. USB 3.0 is still not working on El Capitan; thus, I am using Yosemite(10.10.5); however, 10.11.4 looks interesting though. In order for the battery status to work properly, you need to download the latest battery kext from Rehabman. It worked on me. If it doesn't work on you, you can just post your latest DSDT/SSDT and I can patch it for you. your HDMI seems interesting, I am not sure which kext is needed to enable audio output in your HDMI. re: I dont have it on my laptop. When your done, kindly post your DSDT/SSDT and extra kext here to help others. Cheers! kishine Note: About the brightness keys, it actually took me a while to get that working. I found the DSDT patch here when Rehabman is demoing his ACPIDebug, which is actually cool. Although, I haven't tried the latest ACPIBacklight.kext, but in the older version there will come a time that after touching/updating your kernel cache, your screen will turn blank (screen) after reboot, and this due to the ACPIBacklight.kext. If this happens to you, just remove the kext from SLE folder and/or do an EC Reset.

    Hi Adam55, Right now, auto-sleep is fixed. To get the right kext for your laptop, you need to know your hardware info. Use DPCIManager.app (google it). if you hardware info(sound card) is this (0x80861C20, 0x102804A4, 0x111D76E7, 0x0102, IDT 92HD90BXX). Try to use the kext on this link: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307740-need-help-install-yosemite-on-dell-precision-m6600/?p=2189333 For the keyboard, try this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307740-need-help-install-yosemite-on-dell-precision-m6600/?p=2188811 for resources: http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/tags/forums/M4600/ http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/6536-hp-elitebook-8560w-with-i7-2630qm-nvidia-quadro-1000m-and-1920x1080-lcd-mavericks/ some of the kext maybe for maverick, but there is no harm testing it. cheers kishine

    Hi Adam55, Let us fix your laptop one step at a time. Just install kext for keyboard and proper fakesmc, or whichever is needed to install 'basic' OS X. Then, play with Clover confit.plist to fix your nullcpuacp... I think, it is related to ASUSACPI...flag, it must be checked, The rest you must play around with the Clover config.plist . I my case, I tried to install kext those two kext and ensure the machine is enough that '" most of the Clover options are off/not checked" Once machine is stable enough, then add kext one at a time, and direct your QA to the dev of the Kext, to improve it. For pbi, you need the config.plist, maybe, not the patched script for dsdt or Ssdt. Talk to you later. Have fun testing.

    Hi Adam55, How is your testing? The CPU and GPU temps looks normal, which is good. The boot-up error is related to your kernel cache. To avoid this issue, run the following whenever you install kext or touch some cache files: sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel -a x86_64 -z -v 2 sudo kextcache -system-caches -v 2 Also, the above commands loads the OS faster. The reason I ask to check on PBI Clover is for your GPU. I though, you may have a GPU framebuffer issue or EDID issue, that you may fix by comparing it to those of HP/ATI laptop. Normally, only compiled DSDT/SSDT (.aml) should reside on the CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder. Why don't you try and tell us what happen. kishine

    Hi Adam55, 2 thing: 1. For testing purposes, can you install HWMonitor to see if CPU or GPU gets critically hot before sudden sleep? Can you post your patched DSDT/SSDT here? 2. google "PBI Clover". Some of HP Probook with GPU like yours got El Capitan/Yosemite working. Just dig deep in those google search results. talk to you later. kishine

    Hi Adam55, Attached is your patched DSDT. - I did not disable the discrete GPU as there is no _OFF method on the GPU. - Fixed your SSDT-1 for errors. you still need to patched the DSDT/SSDT for CPU management by following the instruction on the link below: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307740-need-help-install-yosemite-on-dell-precision-m6600/page-2?do=findComment&comment=2201404 Also: - make sure Drop OEM SSDT is checked in the Clover Configuration (config.plist). - you may need to play with your Clover config.plist for ATI/AMD setting. re: don't have AMD Graphics card for me to know the proper setting. Your laptop seems to be special, if the discrete GPU works. In my laptop, I can only use IGPU. Hence, it would be nice to have your laptop going. For your USB to work properly in El Capitan, you may need to patch your DSDT or do the Clover USB Patch; the instructions are somewhere here, just look it up. However, let's have your laptop run stable for now. kishine patched.zip

    DSDT for Dell Precision M4600

    I see, I have to go somewhere soon, but I would like to gather more information about ATI as I have only NVidia, and I would like to help you on this. You said: - In windows, IGPU is not working? I think you need to install .net framework 4.2 and then install the IGPU driver. This works on nVidia, can you tell me if this is the not case in your machine? - Also you said, The Optimus options in BIOS does not work when you turn it on. I my case, if I disable my Optimus flag in BIOS, Yosemite will boot properly, but it will not display anything on the screen. It displays it somewhere else. What happen when you do this? ok, will talk later. kishine.
