  1. Even with High Sierra, the Optiplex780 / 760 is not quite at the end. We're still playing! the Optiplex story: 10.10: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302877-guide-yosemite-1010x-dell-optiplex-780-760/ 10.11: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308097-guide-el-capitan-1011x-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/ 10.12: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312656-guide-macos-sierra-1012-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/ 10.13: this guide Note: High Sierra supports only CPUs with SSE4 support, example: my Q9400 or my Q8200 working with Sierra. Core2Duo E7200 / Core2Quad Q8200 or higher works as well. See CPU-X.app for your CPU !!! For a direct update from 10.12 to 10.13, you first install the latest version of Clover. Copy your Kext's from Clover/kexts/10.12 to /other. Note new BIOS data and firmware data in Clover's config.plist in SMBIOS. For more information read on. Instructions for Clean Install: 1. Download Install macOS High Sierra.app 2. CreateInstall USB flash drive (8GB) with terminal (If problems with USB, then create internal Install HDD): sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 3. Install current version Clover for HighSierra-Support to your Install medium (Legacy-Method): Install Clover in the ESP Bootloader / Install boot0af in the MBR CloverEFI / Clover-EFI 64Bit SATA Drivers64UEFI / EmuVariableUefi-64 Drivers64UEFI / OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Drivers64UEFI / PartitionDxe-64 Install RC Scripts In Target Volume optional: Theme, free choice Install Clover Preference Pane 4. Copy your config.plist and DSDT from your Sierra HDD or SSD or new users from here mount your EFI partition DSDT.aml insert to EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/ config.plist insert to EFI/Clover/ Attention! New bios data and new firmware data. Use current version CloverConfigurator! Example Optiplex780/760: my_DSDT.aml.zip (my DSDT, optimized for Core2Quad, configured for HD5450 and Audio LayoutID 13 (0D) for AppleALC + Lilu. Additionally Framebuffer in the Clover is "Shrike" for the HD 5450) my_config.plist.zip (Create serial number, board serial number, MLB, ROM !!!) Example Optiplex755: by @ricoc90 (files and info): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/332512-guide-macos-high-sierra-1013-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/#entry2598770 Example Optiplex790/990: by @morpheousman (files and info): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/332512-guide-macos-high-sierra-1013-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/#entry2595193 by @chris1111 (files and info): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/332512-guide-macos-high-sierra-1013-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/#entry2595284 Thanks @morpheousman and @chris1111 5. Copy your kexts of your Sierra HDD or SSD to EFI/Clover/kexts/other/ Example760/780: these are my kexts for 10.13: other.zip 6. Important preparation with HD5450 (780/760/755) With High Sierra, there is a black screen with the HD5450, because C2D and C2Q have no Injector iGPU. Since High Sierra, the HD5450 needs a rollback from Sierra. WhateverGreen.kext + Lilu.kext does not work with LegacyBios, unfortunately. Save in advance the following Kext's from your Sierra installation from /System/Library/Extensions: AMDRadeonX3000.kext AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle IOAccelerator2D.plugin IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext Note: Optiplex 790 (or higher) with i? CPU with Injector GPU does not require rollback. 7. apfs.efi This is the current apfs.efi from 10.13.4 DP2: apfs.efi.zip The current original apfs.efi can be found after each install or update in usr/standalone/i386/ (use ShowAllFiles!). The new file system is only for SSDs. HDDs continue to work with HFS+. copy the apfs.efi to EFI/Clover/drivers64/ 8. Now High Sierra install on your HDD or SSD (Partitions with Guid scheme) The installation, even with subsequent updates, can take place in several steps. My experiences: APFS two steps HFS+ one step 8.1 With the HD5450 there is a black screen the first time after the install. I take the SSD out of the Dell and connect it to another Mac. Here I am using the app "EasyKext Pro" and doing the rollback from the backup (step 6 above - AMDRadeonX3000.kext, AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle, IOAccelerator2D.plugin and IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext from Sierra 10.12.6). Reinstall SSD in the Dell and now we get a picture in High Sierra. after installation: 9. Terminal (for unsigned apps) sudo spctl --master-disable 10.

  4. Hello, I have issues with Nvidia Geforce GT 120. On Dell or HP Monitors, Display and resolution is fine using DVI port. No Display is available using HDMI port. On Samsung Syncmaster, display seems to be stretched cut from sides, cannot see dock or some sides of display on larger resolution. My specs are Dell Optiplex 780 High Sierra 10.13.3 8GB ram, Quad Core CPU Nvidia Geforce GT120 See below shots to understand issue. (See description below each image). (when i use 1600x1200 Resolution) Scaled resolution 1600X1200 every thing looks stretched horizontally. If i choose default display option, still having same issue. If i choose 1920X1440 resolution, every thing looks fine but Docks has disappeared from bottom. For Samsung syncmaster, i think I need HDMI output as to fix Screen resolution and display issues. Can some body suggests me how can i fix this.

  6. Hi guys, So I've got my system working somewhat well with Niresh's Mavericks 10.9.0 apart from my GPU. Everything works fine and I do get 1080p resolution, however the Preview App crashes when I use it to view pictures, and I've heard that this could be caused by the driver for the card? I've heard it has something to do with OpenGL or CUDA which I honestly don't know that much about, and was wondering if there's a way to fix the problem by any chance? Everything else works great so far and there's just this tiny thing left that I need to fix the issue!
  7. I've purchased a few of those Optiplex 745 some time ago and managed to have Mac OS El Capitan Running on one beautifully, which is in fact this is the same machine im on now. I wanted to build another media center machine out of another one of them i can't seem to get it to install El Capitan because the bios has computrace set as Active. All 3 of them have computrace set as Active. How do i deactivate them or disable computrace on them? I know that's the reason why the installer won't work because i remember those options needed to be disabled when i tried to install Mac on my old Dell Latitude D420-30 series. Anyone has any input, please chime in. Thanks.
  8. I'm struggling to get my Optiplex 780 DT working with this guide. I can boot into clover just fine, but when I try to boot the USB in clover I get this. I've tried some different boot flags, DSDTs, kexts and patches, but I always get this error. I have a Q8200, 1x4GB, an HD 5450 1GB, and the latest A15 bios. I can't figure out exactly what the problem is, so if anybody could help me out I would really appreciate it! Thanks. EDIT - I tried switching the Q8200 for a Q9400, no difference.
  9. Hi guys! I've done my searching, and have decided that it's time to make my first post regarding this problem. I'm attempting to get Lion to install on my Dell Optiplex 780, using the guide here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=256729 It is supposedly working, as my model is listed here http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.7.3/Desktops#DELL_Optiplex_780 My problem is that the installer will not recognize my internal hard drive. That's all there is to it. I've enabled legacy in the BIOS, still nothing. It will recognize external disks, so I assume it has something to do with my internal controller. What should I do? Thanks! PS: I was a very active member of insanelywind when it was still busy. I was happy when I got this Dell as an opportunity to start hackintoshing again!
  10. Hi all, I have a Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop that I turned into a Hackintosh. Everything is okay so far, other then a few things; I cannot buy a Wifi adapter at this point in time because my router is far away from my Hackintosh and long range adapters are very expensive, far more then I want to spend. I have a MGM Electronics WiFi USB (Part number 831-3397) laying around, is it compatible with macOS Sierra? It worked on Windows 7 when it was installed. I also created my installer with a universal beast that is titled 7.0.1, and the Clover version is 3766. I have a bunch of kexts and configs that do not work well with the latest version on Clover, and when booting, sends me into a kernel panic. Is there anyway I can install 3766 to my HDD, or do I have to use a new set of configs? I used this setup: CLOVER.zip Can someone help me install Clover to my hard drive and have these files work for it? Thank you all so much in advance

  13. Run OSX Yosemite on a Dell Optiplex 780 This tutorial will describe the steps to install Yosemite on a Dell Optiplex 780 (this will also works on a 760). The installation goes to the latest version of 10.10, and when there is a new update i will change the tutorial as soon as possible. If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial. I have also included the PDF file of the guide and the zip file to install OSX Yosemite. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra for using parts of their tutorial. I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English. 1. Credits/Sources Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide: Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac And all other forum members who have posted in my topic and helping out the community. 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Optiplex 780 – This is necessary to install OSX Yosemite for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX Mountain Lion. Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy Yosemite 10.10 GM – If you don’t have a App Store Account, then create one to download OS X Yosemite. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.10 to – For me, I used a 500GB partition to install 10.10 to. An PCI Express Video Card – For use with QE and CI Highly recommended. I use a Ati Radeon HD5450 1GB but 512MB or 2GB also works. CLOVER_780.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive and hackintosh properly prepared. Note: number 7 contains the files for clover, you can copy the entire directory to the EFI Partition: 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop computer with the following specs. NOTE: A PCI video card is recommended to use the full potential of OSX Yosemite because the on board video card doesn't support QE/CI. Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM Western Digital 500GB HDD ATI RADEON HD5450 1GB Intel WG82567LM onboard network Bluetooth USB Cambridge silicon radio (works OOB) ADI 1984A HDA audio onboard HP W2207h Monitor 1680×1050 display Apple Magic Trackpad Apple Magic Mouse Apple Wireless Keyboard US 4.

Move all the files in the unzipped /Clover folder to /EFI/EFI/Clover/, Make sure to choose to MERGE these folders or overwrite them 6. Install OS X Yosemite. This part is the most time consuming. Using a USB 4G flash drive will help things out quite a bit. Shut Down. Enter Bios via tapping F2 during boot. Change SATA Operation to AHCI (Leave the Booting mode on Legacy! UEFI is not support/does not work.) Click Save and reboot Press the F12 key to choose boot device, select USB Drive When Clover boot screen is visible, choose Boot "Mac OS X from Yosemite".

When Clover boot screen is visible, Press F4 (this wil dump your dsdt/ssdt, we don't need it for now), choose YosemiteHD. You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for OS X Yosemite. Go through that process to setup OS X Yosemite. Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet" we will fix this later, go further with the setup process. The setup process will take about 3 minutes. Done. 7. Adjust some settings in OS X 10.10 Once in 10.10 go to finder –preferences –General and choose in show these items on the desktop for. - Hard Disk - External Disk - CD Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock on the left corner and type your password.

Installing Clover on you Hackintosh These settings will install the bootloader to the system drive's EFI partition automatically as part of the scripting. After completion, the system drive's EFI partition will automatically mount.

Hit Continue, Continue, Change Install Location.... Choose the USB, now called YosemiteHD. Hit Customize and install Clover with the following Custom Install settings: ( see image) Download this zip file again.

    Using GTX 780 and GTX 570 together

    Hi, This is my first post on this forum and I want to thank you in advance for your help. I've managed to successfully install OS X Mavericks on my PC. Here are a few of my specs: AsRock X79 Extreme 6 i7-3930k 4.7 Ghz 16GB DDR3 RAM PCIE Slot 1: GTX 570 PCIE Slot2: GTX 780 I have my HDTV connected to the HDMI port of the GTX 570. I have 3 monitors connected to the GTX 780. Mavericks runs just fine but it only detects my GTX 570 so I can only use my TV with it. I would like to be able to use my three other monitors connected to the GTX 780 as well. I know it's possible to use multiple graphics card on a Mavericks Hackintosh. Could someone please tell me what I have to do in order get my GTX 780 and my 3 monitors working too? Thanks in advance for your help

Preparing your SSD or HDD for install on a MBR-partitioned drive If you intent to install OSX86 Mountain Lion On the same Hard disk as your windows follow the steps below. For a clean install on a new formatted hard disk go to Chapter 5. If you’re in Windows 7, you can easily make a new partition on an SSD or HDD via the Disk Managementprogram. Start>Run (or Windows key on your keyboard plus R). diskmgmt.msc (press enter after typing that) Find your drive, right-click on it, and go to Shrink Volume. Wait for it to calculate the amount of space you can make your partition, and enter in your amount (for an exact GB amount, multiple your desired amount of GB times 1024, so a 20GB partition would be 20480MB). Let it make your partition. It will show up as unallocated space. Format the new unallocated space as NTFS and give it a label (mine was ML). Done! 5. Formatting your USB drive Start OSX Lion or Snow Leopard to prepare your USB Flash drive Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive via Disk Utility in Mac OS X: Extract both zip files (Boot780 and Install780) to your Mac OS x desktop Put USB drive in your Mac Open up Disk Utility. Click on your USB drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Erase tab in the middle. Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)” as the format, and give your drive a label (like “ML USB”). Click on the Erase… button. Done! Leave Disk Utility open, as you’ll need it later. 6. Preparing your USB drive with 10.8 This part is the most time consuming. Using a USB 3.0 flash drive will help things out quite a bit. Mount the DMG for Mountain Lion (will be called Mac OS X Install ESD on your desktop). Show hidden files by running the app ShowHiddenFiles in the folder Boot780 on your desktop. Click on Show Special Files (leave the app ShowHiddenFiles open we need this later). In the folder MAC OS X Install ESD right click on Basesystem.dmg and choose “ open with DiskImageMounter(default) Switch back to Disk Utility. Click on your flash drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Restore button in the middle area. For the source, drag “Mac OS X Base System” from your desktop into the empty Source box. For the destination, drag your USB drive from your desktop into the empty Destination box. Click on “Restore” and type your password. This process will take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the speed of your flash drive. When it’s finished, you’ll end up with 2 “Mac OS X Base System” drives on your desktop. Figure out which one is your USB copy (you can right-click > Get Info and use the capacity as an indicator), and rename it to MLINSTALLUSB, after that open it up. Once you’ve opened up MLINSTALLUSB (the one that’s your flash drive), go to /System/Installation. You’ll see a symlink for Packages. Remove it. Create a folder called Packages. Open up a window of the original Mac OS X Install ESD drive and copy everything within Packages to the empty Packages folder on your USB drive. Done! 10.8 is now installed onto your USB drive. Now, we need to modify some of the files on it so that it will properly bootup on a PC. 7. Adding the fixed 10.8 files to the USB drive Now, we need to modify some of the files on your USB drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Open the folder “Boot780” on your Mac OS X desktop. Copy 2 .kext files (FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext) to /System/Library/Extensions on your flash drive. NOTE: The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.8 onto an MBR-partitioned drive, if you install it on the entire hard disk skip step 3 and 4 an go further with step 5. Copy the OSInstall file to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Copy the OSInstall.mpkg file to /System/Installation/Packages/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Run the Chameleon installation package. Make sure to install this package to your flash drive, and customize the installation so that you have an SMBIOS that best relates to the CPU that’s on your computer (leave the default options checked; just check your SMBIOS imac9.1 for the Dell Optiplex 780). Copy now 3 kext files (FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext) from folder Boot780 to /extra/extensions on your flash drive we need this for Chapter 11, Booting 10.8! . Copy mach_kernel from the root of the Mac OS X Install ESD volume and paste it into the root of your flash drive. Lastly, copy extracted folders (Boot780 and Install780) which you have extracted earlier from the zip files to the root of your flash drive. You’ll need this in Chapter 11. Eject all mounted drives (this is not necessary) Go to ShowHiddenFiles and click hide special files after that close program. Eject your USB Drive Done ! 8. Bios Settings Dell Optiplex 780 Before we boot from the Dell Optiplex we need to optimize the bios for Mountain Lion. Start your Dell Optiplex and press F2 to get into the Bios. Go to Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting. Go then to Drives - Sata Operation and choose on the right for Raid Autodetect/AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing Mountain Lion. 9. Installing 10.8 from your USB drive Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install 10.8 onto the partition or Hard Drive. Boot from your USB drive. Once in Chameleon, highlight your flash drive and add -v to the end, then push enter. You’ll see a lot of text fly by be patience startup may take a while. Once you get into the installer (assuming your computer didn’t freeze, restart itself, or get a kernel panic), choose your partition or Hard Disk to install 10.8 to. NOTE : when you install it on a partition skip step 5 - 10 see Chapter 4. (If you install Mountain Lion on the entire Hard disk follow the steps below ) In the installer open up Disk Utility. Click on your Hard Drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Erase tab in the middle. Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)” as the format, and give your drive a label (like “ML OSX”). Click on the Erase… button. Done close Disk Utility and go further with the installation process. The installation process will take about 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD. When finished, boot back into your already working copy of Mac OS X. 10. Booting 10.8! Now that everything is finally prepared, you can go ahead and boot into Mountain Lion. Boot from your USB drive again your computer won't still be able to boot from the hard drive. Once in Chameleon, highlight your partition that has 10.8 installed. Add -v to it and push enter. You’ll see a lot of text fly by again be patience startup will take a while. You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for 10.8. Go through that process to setup 10.8. Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet" we will fix this later in Chapter 13, go further with the installation process. The installation process will take about 25 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD. Done! Proceed to Chapter 11 to install the bootloader to your partition so that you don’t have to rely on using your USB drive to bootup. 11. Installing the bootloader to 10.8 Once in 10.8 go to finder – preferences –General and choose in show these items on the desktop for - Hard Disk - External Disk - CD Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock on the left corner and type your password Choose by “Allow applications downloaded from: for “Anywhere – Allow from anywhere Close system preferences. Copy the folders "Boot780" and "Install780" from your USB Device to your Mac OS X desktop after that open up the Chameleon installation package in folder Boot780, and install Chameleon to your 10.8 partition (while choosing your SMBIOS imac9.1, just like before, This is similar to step 5 in Chapter 7.) . Done! 12. Copy org.chameleon.boot.plist to /extra Starting up Mac OS X for the first time on your Hackintosh can be a very tricky process, which often requires you to set special boot options through the use of boot flags. For those of you who don't know, boot flags are "arguments" (pieces of data that you enter) to change the way that your bootloader runs. The bootloader is the program that boots Mac OS X. Boot flags can set the boot options for Chameleon, and any other boot CD or bootloader for Hackintoshes. Read past the break to learn how to use boot flags. There are two ways to apply a boot flag: either by typing it into the bootloader before starting up Mac OS X, or by typing it into org.Chameleon.boot.plist, the settings file used by the bootloader. See also Chapter Common boot options for Chameleon. I have included a org.Chameleon.Boot.Plist for the Dell Optiplex 780 Open the folder “Boot780.” and copy org.chameleon.Boot.Plist Past org.chameleon.Boot.Plist to /extra on your Hard Disk 13. Install the Kext files for de Dell Optiplex 780 hardware Now, we need to install some Kext files on your Hard Disk drive so that the hardware will work properly on your PC. Open the folder “Install780” and select the following Kext files - AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext - AppelIntelE1000e.kext - ATI5000Injector.kext - EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext - FakeSMC.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - VoodooHDA.kext Drag the Kext files (which are mentioned above) over "Kext utility.app" (contained in folder “Install780”) and release the mouse Type your root password and the Kext files will be installed on your Hard disk.

  16. I've been working on getting a hackintosh installation going, but I've currently run into a snag with getting Yosemite 10.10.3 installed. (No Pictures, because I'm posting this right before class starts) What has been done Obtained a vanilla copy of OSX 10.10.3 via the AppStore with OSX Mavericks Created the installation media with "Something that isn't supported here"; Clover wouldn't work at all. Patched the kernel on the installation media to support the X99 platform (from the tonymac forum) Added VoodooTSCSync.kext to "Something that isn't supported here" in "/extra/extensions" Used Bootflags -v npci=0x2000 (Gets past verbose text; locks up on white screen w/ beachball; before the start of the installer is active.) Using nv_disable= 1 or 0 breaks loading. GraphicsEnabler=Yes / No doesn't seem to have any effect either.

Updated 27 februari 2014 - Added update 10.9.2 steps in the document - Latest PDF version 1.2 with date 27 februari 2014 Updated 21 october 2013 - Fixed some text true the document - Rewrite of chapter 7 - Added new images for chameleon install and iMessage Error - Added section TROUBLESHOOTING - Added Boot 0 : ERROR in Troubleshooting - Added iMessage Error in Troubleshooting - New Install109.zip Run OSX Mavericks on a Dell Optiplex 780 This tutorial will describe the steps to install Mavericks on a Dell Optiplex 780 (this will also works on a 760). The installation goes to the latest version of 10.9, and when there is a new update i will change the tutorial as soon as possible. If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial. I have also included the PDF file of the guide and the zip file to install OSX Mavericks. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra for using parts of their tutorial. I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English. 1. Credits/Sources Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide: Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac Forum member Pingu from Germany for helping me out with the text changes. And all other forum members who have posted in my topic and helping out the community. 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Optiplex 780 – This is necessary to install OSX Mavericks for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX Mountain Lion. Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy Mavericks 10.9 GM – If you don’t have a Mac Developer Account, then you’ll find torrents of 10.9 around the web. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.9 to – For me, I used a 500GB partition to install 10.9 to. An PCI Express Video Card – For use with QE and CI Highly recommended. I use a Ati Radeon HD5450 1GB but 512MB or 2GB also works. Install109.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. Note: The files for number 8 "Install109.zip" contains the following Directory's (4) and files: Kernel - Mach Kernel Kexts - FakeSMC.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext - AppleIntelE1000e.kext - VoodooHDA.kext OSInstall - OSInstall - OSInstall.mpkg (Not used for my configuration because I use the entire hard disk) Utils - Chameleon-2.2svn-r2265 - Chameleon Wizard - Kext Utility - EFI Studio - ShowHiddenFiles The first 3.kext files will fix most kernel panics en bios reset that you might experience while booting. The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.9 onto an MBR-partitioned drive ( ! this is not tested, for further info go to insaneleymac forum !). 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop computer with the following specs. NOTE: A PCI video card is recommended to use the full potential of OSX Mavericks because the on board video card doesn't support QE/CI.

Adding the fixed 10.9 files to the USB drive Now, we need to modify some of the files on your USB drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Open the folder “Instal109 - Kexts” on your Mac OS X desktop. Copy 3 .kext files (FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext) to /System/Library/Extensions on your flash drive. NOTE: The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.9 onto an MBR-partitioned drive, if you install it on the entire hard disk skip step 3 and 4 an go further with step 5. Copy the OSInstall file to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Copy the OSInstall.mpkg file to /System/Installation/Packages/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Go to the root of your USB drive and create a folder called "Extra". This is used to store configuration files for the chameleon boot loader Run the Chameleon installation package from Install - Utils. Make sure to install this package to your flash drive. Choose in the Chameleon setup for Customize, in the customize screen choose Modules – FileNVRAM ( we need this to make iMessage work) after that go further with the install of Chameleon. Run the Chameleon Wizard click the “SMBios” tab then click "Edit". Now there is a list of “Premade SMBioses”. Look through this list and choose for your Dell Optiplex 780 the iMac9.1. Click “Save As” and save it to the /Extra folder we created on the USB stick. Choose Tab Org.Chameleon.boot and set the follow options like in the image below. If the settings are like the image then Click “Save As” and save it to the /Extra folder we created on the USB stick. Copy mach_kernel from the Folder Install109 - Kernel and paste it into the root of your flash drive. Lastly, copy extracted folder (Install109) which you have extracted earlier from the zip file to the root of your flash drive. You’ll need this in Chapter 12 Eject all mounted drives (this is not necessary) Go to ShowHiddenFiles and click hide special files after that close program. Eject your USB Drive Done ! 8.
