  1. 10.10 on Dell Inspiron i3487 desktop...

    update (03/02/2015) Fixed Sleep (& Wifi) by switching out the Dell 1705 card with an older mini-pcie wifi card (that is the functional equivalent of an older-gen airport card (AR928x)). I will potentially be switching out this card for another one that also has bluetooth and is mac compatible. Also, as a note, previously I mentioned a guide for the Dell XPS 8700 but after re-doing my clover configuration, I realized I barely had to make any changes to the default Clover configuration to get the hackintosh up and running.
  2. Update: Fixed sleep by switching out the incompatible bluetooth/wifi mini-pcie card with a mac-compatible one! My guess is that the partially compatible bluetooth/wifi card was interacting with the OS somehow, and now allowing it to fully stay asleep. The OS recognized the bluetooth function of the card, but the wifi wasn't recognized. Now that I am using an airport card (or at least its functional equivalent), all things are running smoothly.
  3. No luck so far. I tried injecting the USB in clover, and even tried putting in the GenericUSBXHCI kext, but nothing really changed.
  4. Do you know how this can be done with Clover?

  7. I get this as wake reason: Wake reason: GLAN XHC Any ideas on how to fix this?
  8. Hello everyone- I managed to get Yosemite installed on my Dell Inspiron 3487 following the Clover guide for the Dell XPS 8700, and everything works fine so far, except sleep. The display goes to sleep, but the hard drive (or some other noisy part of the computer) makes a loud movement sound (which, btw, i never hear when the computer is not in "sleep" mode). Aside from that, the display "wakes" as soon as I touch the mouse/keyboard (like normal). The other thing I noticed is that the mouse light never turns off when the computer goes to "sleep." Does anybody here have any idea what might be causing the noise, and how I might be able to fix it?
  9. 10.10 on Dell Inspiron i3487 desktop...

    Just bought this desktop for an insane price and installed 10.10 on it following most of the steps in the "Easy, Repeatable Dell 8700 Clover Install Guide". It was a fresh install, and fairly simple, especially following the Dell 8700 steps. huskerphile's additional kext suggestions came in handy as well. Aside from that, the WiFi on my machine is also not working, and the Bluetooth is recognized, but is unusable. Will update as things progress...
