  1. Sadly i got banned on tonymacx86.com for the mentioning of "Pandoras Box" in this tutorial (reason: "Blatant Disregard of Forum Policies on Piracy"). Thats why i post and update it here Dell XPS 15 (9550, Version of 2016) Sierra 10.13.1 Tutorial Please use the GITHUB version of this text, because this tutorial got too fragmented for a simple forum thread - thanks to the latest Dell Firmware 1.2.25 which requires multiple different versions and tutorials and made the installation of OSX much harder for newbies Before we start: this installation includes real time DSDT/SSDT patching from within clover. This is pretty easy to install. But it is NOT suited for people with no or only few knowledge in Hackintosh Systems. If you only know how to copy commands in your shell and you dont know what they're doing, then stop the tutorial and revert to windows or buy a real mac. Even if you get it running: this system is not failsafe and will be broken multiple times in its usage time, where you have to fix it without a tutorial. Optional steps are marked in GREEN, System dependent steps are BLUE English is not my mother-tongue and i'm writing this without proof reading, so please forgive my bad spelling If you've questions or something doesn't work: first check if you've done all steps of this tutorial! If yes: please read the whole thread (doesn't matter how long it is) before asking to prevent multiple questions. Additionally do a search in google and this forum. Credits: Many knowledge of "how to hackintosh a dell in the first place" by the tutorial of @Gymnae http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319766-dell-xps-9550-detailled-1011-guide/ Using many kexts and solutions from @RehabMan What's not working: Hibernation (works somehow, but high chance to destroy your whole data), Sleep works fine! SD-Card reader Killer 1535 Wifi (rarely used, need replace) nVidia Graphics card (Intel works) FileVault 2 (full HDD encryption) Requirements: one working MAC OS X Enviroment 16GB USB Stick (larger is sometimes not bootable and/or requires advanced partitioning) MacOS High Sierra 10.13.1 installation file from the app store (redownload, just in case) Knowledge in PLIST editing USB Harddrive for backup - you'll loose all data on your computer! Step 1: Prepare Installation Use the existing Mac to download the Sierra installer from the App Store and create a bootable USB stick with CLOVER. You can do this with the App "Pandora's Box" of insanelymac (use google for download link), which is pretty easy to use. Optional: check if your SSD can be switched to 4k sector size. This prevents NVMe corruption. See https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/4k_sector.md After you've finished you need to download the Dell XPS 15 specific configurations for clover. Link: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/archive/10.13.zip and unzip this file or checkout git directly: git clone https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX.git You only need the folder 10.13, you can delete the 10.11. I'll refer to this folder by "git/" Now mount the hidden EFI partition of the USB Stick by entering diskutil mount EFI Inside the terminal. Mac OS will automaticly mount the EFI partition of the USB stick, but just in case: make sure it really is Overwrite everything in the CLOVER folder of the partition EFI with the content of git/10.13/CLOVER. If your PC has a Core i5 processor, you'll have to modify your config.plist in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/: search for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000. If you could use the 4k sector patch, replace the config.plist with the 4kconfig.plist. If you use a hynix device and you didnt do the 4k sector switch, you'll have to add the following patch to your config.plist <key>Comment</key> <string>IONVMeFamily Pike R. Alpha Hynix SSD patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data>9sEQD4UcAQAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>IONVMeFamily</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>9sECD4UcAQAA</data> Go into the EFI Configuration (BIOS) of your Dell XPS 15: Also disable the SD-Card Reader to reduce the power consumption drastically. Insert the stick on the Dell XPS 15 and boot it up holding the F12 key to get in the boot-menu and start by selecting your USB-Stick (if you've done it correctly it's named "Clover: Install macOS Sierra", otherwise it's just the brandname of your USB-Drive). You should get to the MacOS Installation like on a real mac. If you're asked to log-in with your apple-id: select not now! Reason: see Step 5. Step 2: Partition and Installation INFORMATION: after this step your computer will loose ALL data! So if you haven't created a backup, yet: QUIT NOW! Dont install macOS yet. Select the Diskutil and delete the old partitions. Create a new HFS partition and name it "OSX". If you want to multiboot with Windows 10, then you'll have to create a second partition, too (also HFS! Dont use FAT or it will not boot! You have to reformat it when installing Windows). Make sure to select GUID as partition sheme. Close the Diskutil and install OSX normally. You'll have to reboot multiple times, make sure to always boot using the attached USB stick. So dont forget to press F12. After the first reboot you should see a new boot option inside clover, which is highlighted by default. Just press enter. If you only see one, then something went wrong. Step 3: Make it bootable After a few reboots you should be inside your new macOS enviroment. You can always boot into it using the USB stick. Remove the USB drive after successful bootup. Enter diskutil mount EFI in your terminal, which should mount the EFI partition of your local installation. install git/Additional/Tools/Clover_v2.4k_r4003.pkg. Make sure to select "Install Clover in ESP". Also select to install the RC-Scripts. This should install the Clover Boot System. Now copy everything from git/10.13/CLOVER to EFI/CLOVER like you did before by creating the usb stick. (if you had to modify the config.plist in step 1, do it here, too). Your system should be bootable by itself. Reboot and check if your system can boot by itself. Step 4: Post Installation Because all DSDT/SSDT changes are already in the config.plist, you dont need to recompile your DSDT (albeit i suggest doing it anyway to make your system a lil bit more failsafe, see gymnaes El-Capitan tutorial for more informations). So we can skip this part and go directly to the installation of the required kexts. Open a terminal and goto the GIT folder. sudo cp -r ./Post-Install/LE-Kexts/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.bak 2> /dev/null sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.bak 2> /dev/null sudo ./AD-Kexts/VoodooPS2Daemon/_install.command Now you'll have to replace the config.plist. Because you'll install modified kexts you'll HAVE TO replace the config.plist in your installation. Otherwise your PC will not boot anymore. diskutil mount EFI replace EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with git/Post-Install/CLOVER/config.plist. Again: if your PC has a Core i5 processor, search the config.plist for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000. OPTIONAL (in case you've audio problems): AppleHDA has some problems after Wake-Up. You'll have to plug in a headphone to get your speakers working again. You can use VoodooHDA instead, which breaks the headphone jack most of the time, but makes the rest much more stable. sudo rm -r /Library/Extensions/CodecCommander.kext sudo rm /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/SSDT-ALC298.aml then remove from your config.plist from the key "KextsToPatch" the elements "AppleHDA#1" to "AppleHDA#7". Install the package: git/Post-Install/AD-Kexts/VoodooHDA-2.8.8.pkg i also suggest moving some of the kext from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13 to /Library/Extensions. It's just more stable. Finalize the kext-copy by recreating the kernel cache: sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache sudo rm -rf /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sometimes you'll have to redo the last command if your system shows "Lock acquired". OSX 10.12.2 removed the posibility to load unsigned code. You can enable this by entering sudo spctl --master-disable If you're using the 4K monitor, you'll have to copy the UHD enabling kexts to your clover directory: sudo cp ./Post-Install/AD-Kexts/UHD-Kexts/* /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/ To enable GPU acceleration: Edit your clover config file again and remove the following block from it: To prevent getting in hibernation (which can and will corrupt your data), just set the default sleep mode to "suspend to ram" (sleep) instead of "suspend to disk" (hibernation) sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 To get HDMI Audio working: Search for your Boarrd-ID in the config.plist and open /S/E/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/contents/plugin/AppleGraphicePolicy.kext/contents/info.plist with a texteditor. Search for your board-id in there and change the value of it from "Config2" to "none" OPTIONAL (alternative power management): the whole power management is done by intels speed step technology (HWP), which is enabled in the clover config. If you want to let OSX manage the power management, you'll have to do these steps: sudo cp ./Post-Install/CLOVER/ACPI/optional/SSDT.aml /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ then open the config.plist (/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist) and change <key>HWPEnable</key><true/> to <key>HWPEnable</key><false/>. Step 5: iServices (AppStore, iMessages etc.) WARNING! DONT USE YOUR MAIN APPLE ACCOUNT FOR TESTING! It's pretty common that apple BANS your apple-id from iMessage and other services if you've logged in on not well configured hackintoshs! If you want to use the iServices, you'll have to do some advanced steps, which are not completly explained in this tutorial. First you need to switch the faked network device already created by step 4 to be on en0. Goto your network settings and remove every network interface. sudo rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist Reboot, go back in the network configuration and add the network interfaces (LAN) before Wifi. You also need to modify your SMBIOS in the config.plist of Clover in your EFI partition with valid informations about your "fake" mac. There are multiple tutorials which explain how to do it like "http://www.fitzweekly.com/2016/02/hackintosh-imessage-tutorial.html". It's possible you have to call the apple hotline to get your fake serial whitelisted by telling a good story why apple forgot to add your serial number in their system. (aka: dont do it if you dont own a real mac). I personally suggest using real data from an old (broken) macbook. Step 6: Upgrading to macOS 10.13.2 or higher / installing security updates Each upgrade will possibly break your system! (Update: after the latest updates in this tutorial the system should be update-proof.) Step 7: Fixes / Enhancements / Alternative Solutions / Bugs See: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/Tutorial_10.13_Step7.md Afterword and fixes as i said before: this is not a tutorial for absolute beginners, albeit it's much easier then most other tutorials, because most is preconfigured in the supplied config.plist. Some Dells have components included, which are not supported by these preconfigured files. Then i can only suggest using Gymnaes tutorial which explains most of the DSDT patching, config.plist editing and kexts used in detail and use the supplied files here as templates. Warning: Some people have reported multiple data losses on this machine. I suggest using time-machine whenever possible! If your device is detected as "Model Name: Apple Device", see: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319764-guide-dell-xps-15-9550-sierra-10122-quick-installation/page-13?do=findComment&comment=2362337 If you want to save the settings of the display brightness: downgrade to clover 3899, in the never versions the nvram restore is broken. USBInjectAll is not intended for permanent use. You should check which USB are really required to be injected and modify your DSDT/SSDT. 4K Touchscreen only: Multitouch can be achieved with the driver from touch-base.com, but it's not open source - costs > 100 $ Not a bug: if you REALLY want to use the 4K Display natively and disable the Retina Mode (max 1920x1080), see: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/macbook-pro-retina-display-faq/macbook-pro-retina-display-hack-to-run-native-resolution.html Tutorial Updates 27. March 2017: UHD Kexts added, replaces perl command 23. March 2017: 4k sector tutorial against NVMe corruption added 7. March 2017: Suggestion to disable the SD Card Reader for reduced power consumption 4. February 2017: Dell SMBIOS Truncation workaround added 23. January 2017: Hynix SSD fix added 31. December 2016: USB-C Hotplug Fix and USB InjectAll Removed 28. December 2016: NVMe SSDT Spoof precreated, FakeID already preset in installation config.plist. VoodooHDA added as alternative to SSDT-ALC298 patch as well as color coding in tutorial 22. December 2016: FakeSMBios added Accessories Appendix: The official Dell adaptor DA200 (http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=at&l=de&s=dhs&cs=atdhs1&sku=470-abry) works completly on Sierra 10.2.2. You can use the Network, USB, HDMI and VGA. Everything is Hot-Pluggable a cheap 3rd party noname USB-C -> VGA adaptor didnt work you can charge the Dell with a generic USB-C Power Adaptor, but USB-C has only a maximum power of 100W, so it's either charging OR usage, not both. Dont forget you need a special USB-C cable (Power Delivery 3.0) for charging.
  2. macOS Sierra 10.12.3 on a Dell Latitude E5440 A full installation guide. Now 50% Easier I needed a real hackintosh that was on the latest version of Mac, had UEFI, and had QE/CI. So this was my only option.

Install Clover 7.While you have your EFI partition mounted, extract the EFI.zip onto the root of your flash drive. It may ask to replace the contents in EFI, click YES. This will install the kexts, config.plist, and dsdt that you'll need to be able to boot to the installer. 8.Reboot your device and plug in your flash drive into the Latitude. When your computer boots, mash your F12 button. Make sure not to break it. When it pops up do NOT go to the UEFI boot option. Under legacy boot, hit enter on USB 9.If all goes well, you should be on the Sierra install screen. I did not know if the PS2 kext would work when being in the clover kexts. So I decided not to put them. Which means your trackpad isn't working right now. Use a USB mouse and keyboard for now. Note: If you cannot see Disk Utility, go to the Language Chooser, and hold Alt+T. Then type /Applications/Utilities/Disk\ Utility.app/Contents/MacOS/Disk\ Utility.

This will be the last time you will need to boot from your USB. 7. Install clover onto the Fat32 partition that you made before. Same settings as before, but instead of putting it as boot0ss, put it as boot0af. Use the same EFI.zip that you used before to put on the Fat32 clover partition. Sorry if this guide is a little over the place, this is my first guides, and ratings in the comments are much appreciated! EDIT: Updated downloads and made some steps easier (mainly the post-installation ones) EDIT 2: Cleaned up a lot of the steps. Made them more pleasant to read. I might add images next.

  3. - Where to start?: A nice guide on how to create your own USB installer is provided here: http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/ I do recommend using this method: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302220-pandoras-box-20-candidate-3-roll-out/ It's self-explanatory. If you only run Windows at the moment, install OS X into a virtual machine, and follow the guide from there. - What will not work?: - Wifi, you will have to replace the card, i switched mine with an Atheros 9285. Note: After replacing, your Bluetooth will not work anymore, so an USB Wifi device would be the better option perhaps. - Card reader, no solution for this at the moment. - Nvidia GT 650M, the card has been completely disabled in the DSDT. If this is not done it will make your system freeze on startup if the NVDA* and GeForce* kexts are not removed. Also, the system will overheat if it is not disabled. Since you can not use the card, it is best to disable it. - Wake from sleep, the display does not wake up. This has been fixed in the new DSDT attached to this post. - HDMI out. Requires patching of the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri to enable AAPL,ig-platform-id 0x03. On every update of OS X you will need to patch this file again before rebooting. Not patching or editing the DSDT before reboot will result in a black screen. ​New patch enables HDMI audio out and corrects the vram to 512mb. - What will partially work?: - Touchpad, recognized as trackpad, only basic input, no gestures like 2 finger scrolling. - Audio, LineIn and the subwoofer will not work. - FN keys, for Audio and Wifi FN keys for brightness have been fixed. - USB 3.0, depends if you want compatibility with USB 2.0 flash drives. Both devices work. Booting with GenericUSBXHCI, have not tested without it. - Lan, only with specific settings. Official Realtek driver. Realtek Driver. - So...What does work?: - Speedstep - Sleep, patched IntelCPUPowerManagement or an unlocked bios. - Intel HD4000, DSDT injection, patched AGPM. (Need to explore) - Audio, line out, speakers, HDMI and internal mic, DSDT injection and a patched AppleHDA. - Battery status, ACPIBatteryManager and DSDT edit. Corrections have been made in the DSDT attached. - Webcam - Brightness control, in system preferences. - 1. Pre-Installation. - Download the EFI15022015.zip from this post and place it on your desktop. When you opened Pandora's Box, select bootloader > Clover UEFI, click start. I had some issues with Pandora installing the bootloader. - When Pandora is done download Clover configurator, select mount EFI, on the bottom right corner, Mount EFI partition, and select the USB s1 (disk2s1 in most cases). - Open folder, it will be empty, just copy the EFI folder to that partition. - 2. Installation. Boot from the USB installer, it will boot in verbose mode, if any error occurs, you can take a photo of it and attach it to a post here. First you need to prepare the HDD to install Yosemite on. I recommend using and empty HDD, format it to GPT, with 1 partition formatted to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Now go through the setup and select your newly created partition. Grab a cup of coffee or something. - 3. Installing a bootloader. After installation the system will reboot. Boot from the USB installer again. When you arrive at the Clover boot loader screen, select the partition you have just installed OS X to, and press enter. OS X will load, go through the system setup. The first thing you want to do is install a bootloader to the HDD. I have attached the files needed for Clover. A guide on how to install Clover can be found at the bottom of this post, under the spoiler. You can also use Clover Configurator, makes things a lot easier. - 4. Patching AppleHDA.kext A guide on how to do this can be found here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/283754-patched-applehdakext-for-codecs-idt-92hd81b1x5-92hd91bxx-92hd87b13-92hd87b24-92hd87xx-etc/ Pinconfig: - 5. AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext It is no longer needed to change the device id in the DSDT. Former patch method can still be found in the old guide. I have included a file called: aifc09022015.sh, just drag and drop it in the Terminal window, type "y" to patch the kext. This patch will make the following changes in the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri: Original section: 04 00 66 01 01 03 01 01 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 40 10 07 00 00 10 07 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 50 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 05 03 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 40 In the second line is the vram, 40 stands for 1024mb.

A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial. And Hervé from insanelymac for using is modified DSDT.aml for E6320 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Latitude E6320 – This is necessary to install macOS Sierra 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 El Capitan, 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 of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. 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 10.12 to – For me, I used a 500GB HDD to install 10.12 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor.

Download OS X Sierra Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. Once macOS Sierra is downloaded, close the install pop-up that appears using Command (⌘)+Q. The application INSTALL macOS Sierra will appear in /Applications Done! 5. Prepare bootable USB Installer Note on flash drives: You will need a USB flash drive to make this work. Your USB should be at least 8GB and a USB 3.0 drive is preferred. Kingston sells an 8GB USB 3.0 drive for less than 10 euro. Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Make sure that the disk you choose to use doesn't contain anything that you want to keep, because the following tutorial will purge everything on the drive. Open Finder - Applications and right-click on Install macOS Sierra and select Show Package Contents. Open Contents - Resources. Open a Terminal window thru Applications - Utilities - Terminal. In the Terminal window type sudo followed by a space. Drag the createinstallmedia file from the finder window opened in Step 4 to the Terminal Window. Type --volume followed by a space. Connect your USB drive and drag the USB drive into the Terminal Window. Type --applicationpath in the Terminal followed by a space. Open Finder - Applications and drag the Install macOS Sierra into the Terminal Window. Press Return on the keyboard to submit the full command. Type a 'Y' to continue when prompted to do so, and press Return on your keyboard The install process will begin by erasing the contents of your USB disk and copying the installer files to the USB disk. The entire process is quite lengthy; it can takes around 15-30 minutes, so you will need to show some patience 6.

Clover will installed on the EFI Partition on the USB after install you can see the EFI partition in Finder. 7. Prepare USB stick for the Dell E6320 Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your Laptop. Go to map where you have unpacked the E6320 zip file there you will find a map called EFI. Copy the map EFI and go to your EFI partition thru Finder. Paste the EFI folder in the EFI partition and replace everything. Done your USB Stick is ready to boot macOS Sierra installer. 8. Bios Settings Dell Latitude E6320 Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OSX Sierra Start your Dell Latitude and press F2 to get into the Bios. In the main screen click on "Load Defaults", the bios will be reset to default settings. Go to General - 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 System Configuration - SATA Operation and choose on the right for AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing OSX Sierra. 9. Installing OSX Sierra from your USB drive Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install macOS Sierra onto the Hard Drive. Using a USB 4G flash drive will help things out quite a bit. Power on unit while tapping F12 Key to choose boot device, select USB device. When Clover boot screen is visible, choose boot "Install macOS from Sierra USB Installer". Choose you desired language and click on the arrow, the macOS Utilities screen will appear. For a new installation of macOS, you must erase and format the destination drive according to the following steps before continuing. If you are upgrading from Mavericks , Yosemite or El Capitan and you want to keep your files and apps, skip steps 1-9. (NOT TESTED IN SIERRA) Choose in the macOS utilities for Disk Utility and click Continue. Disk Utility will be opened, highlight your target drive for macOS Sierra installation in the left column. Click ERASE button on top. Under Name: Type Sierra or any other name. Under Format: Choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Under Scheme: Choose GUID Partition Map. Click Erase. Click on Done. Close Disk Utility you will be prompted to the macOS Utilities screen. In the macOS Utilities screen choose Install macOS and click 2x on Continue.

Close the Finder Preferences. 13. Change Security & Privacy for 3rd party software Start Terminal choose GO - Utilities - Terminal. In Terminal type sudo spctl --assess --master-disable followed by password to activate the option in Security & Policy "Allow apps downloaded from" Anywhere. Go to System Preferences – Security& Privacy and look of the option "Anywhere" is active if not activate the option. Close system preferences. 14. Revert HDD for proper boot. Launch Terminal and execute the following command: sudo diskutil corestorage revert / When prompt type your password. Exit Terminal and reboot again with your USB to macOS. 15. Installing Clover to the HD The steps 15 and 16 are the same as steps 6 and 7 but now we will install clover to the HDD of the E6320. Unpack the E6320.zip to your desktop or specified map you preferred. Open the map E6320 - Clover_v2.3k_r3726. DubbleClick on the Clover_v2.3k_r3726.pkg package file.

Paste the EFI folder in the EFI partition and replace everything. Done your E6320 is ready to boot macOS Sierra. 17. Install Wlan driver for the TL-WN725N The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK. The software is straight forward and installs without problems. Go to your E6320 folder which you have extracted to your HDD of your macOS Sierra. Open the map "beta driver for mac os X 10.11" . Run Installer_RTL.pkg Click Continue - Continue - Continue - Agree - Install Enter your Password and click Install Software - Continue Installation Click Restart to Reboot your Laptop. The first time you will get a kernel panic don't worry reboot again and the laptop will start macOS Sierra. Done! 18. What's working? Just about everything. 19. Finished! You’ve successfully installed macOS Sierra onto your Dell Latitude E6320. TROUBLESHOOTING 20. iMessage & FaceTime Fix You will need MLB and Rom numbers from a legit Mac device that is on the mac server. Run iMessage debug on a iMac, Macbook, etc and make a copy and paste of the Terminal output. Open Clover Configurator. Mount EFI Partition. Import config.plist from EFI/EFI/Clover (File , import configuration, browse to config.plist and select). In Clover Configurator Click on RT Variables, Enter Rom and MLB Values from iMessage output from valid iMac device. Save changes to config.plist. Reboot, Sign into iMessage. iMessage and FaceTime should now both be working. 21. BOOT 0 Error If you are using a 4k HDD you can get boot:0 error, to solve this issue do the following. Reboot system back into Sierra installer (USB)FLASH DRIVE). Run Disk Utility find the Disk Identifier (eg. disk0s2). Unmount the drive you installed Sierra on.

    need help patching dsdt

    So I am VERY new to the hackintosh world and just finished installing Sierra(tried HS, but failed, got Sierra USB from a friend) on my Dell Inspiron 7567. Now, my laptop has an i5-7300HQ processor. Now the install boots up fine and clover is set up but I need a little help patching DSDT. I read RehabMan's excellent guide but am still confused as I have never worked with Macs before. I need the following things working: Display brightness, Battery Status, Audio. Can someone detail out exactly which steps I need to follow? I tried to compile DSDT but run into the following errors: 341, 6074, Name already exists in scope (BNUM) 1411, 6074, Name already exists in scope (IDMN) 1412, 6074, Name already exists in scope (IDPC) 1413, 6074, Name already exists in scope (DLPN) 1426, 6074, Name already exists in scope (IPFI) Can anyone help me out with these errors and with the patching? Uploading DSDT.aml here DSDT.zip
  7. Overall status: WORKING WELL Hello again, True Believers! On today's episode of Spider-man and His Amazing Friends we'll be looking at the Dell XPS 8930 tower system. Lets start off by looking at a detailed list of the 8930's hardware, Intel® Core i7-8700 CPU @ 3.20GHz, 3192 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical Processor(s), Coffee Lake 32GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM (2x16GB sticks @ 2133MHz, aftermarket) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, Graphics card #1 (aftermarket) Intel® UHD Graphics 630, Graphics card #2 (cannot disable in UEFI BIOS) Realtek Audio (not sure what chip yet) KXG50ZNV512G NVMe TOSHIBA 512GB WDC WD30EFRX-68EUZN0 (3TB hard drive, aftermarket) PLDS DVD+-RW DU-8A5LH, Optical drive Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet Controller Qualcomm QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Adapter ASMedia USB 3.1 eXtensible Host Controlle Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller The UEFI BIOS has tons of options that need to be disabled. This is the main UEFI BIOS screen. Nothing to change here, except maybe the date. The Advanced tab. Make sure to switch RAID to AHCI or your disk will not show up. Everything else should be set as in the picture. Next up is the Security tab. Make the changes to match the picture. I'm not sure if this is needed but I went into the Secure Boot option and selected "Delete All Secure Boot Variables", see picture below. Secure boot options. As stated above I deleted the variables. Finally the Boot tab. Just set as in the picture. Never mind the "Windows Boot Manager". I ended up deleting the entry via the "File Browser Del Boot Option" and added Clover via the "File Browser Add Boot Option". GREAT SCOTT! This had to be the easiest install of a Hackintosh ever. Basically I made an install USB stick and put FakeSMC.kext and AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/other folder. No other kexts were needed. I booted off the USB stick, installed macOS and I was done with the OS portion. After installation I rebooted the computer and then booted from the USB stick. I chose the freshly installed drive and it booted to the setup portion of the installation. After setup it was onward to the desktop. I'll not bore you with the specifics of fully setting up a bootable macOS install, but after all was said and done it was smooth sailing. Post install was basically installing VooDooHDA and the nVidia web drivers. Ethernet was taken care of via the AtherosE2200Ethernet kext. USB and Bluetooth worked without any extra effort. As far as I can tell the only thing NOT WORKING is the WiFi. I Googled a bit but nothing turned up for the Qualcomm QCA9377. I keep on the look out for a kext though. The CPU shows up as unknown, but everything else seems to be in order. The CPU's speedstep works as intended. I monitored it via the Intel® Power Gadget for a good bit and it was scaling fine. The NVMExpress ssd looks to be detected and set up properly. I really didn't expect it to be. A very pleasant surprise. Geekbench 4 scores. Not sure if it's good or bad. Take with a grain of salt. Here are the Cinebench results. Again, I'm not sure if these are good or bad. This test seems a bit dated considering the comparative results of the other hardware. People seem to still use it, though, so here it is. This is supposed to mean something about disk speed. I'm still not sure if it's good or not. Enjoy, if you're into this sort of thing. Here is my EFI folder for the Dell XPS 8930, Google Drive Link Here are the Post Installation tools I used for this install, Google Drive Link I have more information to share. I'll get back to this later on.

    Hi I have a dell Inspiron 7548. So is there any guide on how to install mac os 10.12 on my laptop, because I try to install by making standard USB installation but not work... i also tried pandora's box mac OS X sierra with no success. Can anyone help me, please? Thanks
  15. Hello, I have done a semi-successful install of macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on my Dell OptiPlex 3010. When I mean semi-successful, I mean I have some issues left, one of them is Networking. Networking, meaning Ethernet, does not seem to work on this machine after installing Mac OS. I've tried installing kext files, reinstalling Sierra, and so on but nothing seems to work, I have an Ethernet cable plugged and it's lights flashing and whatever but the connection does not show up in Sierra. My PC Specs are: Dell OptiPlex 3010 MT Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz AMD Radeon HD 7470 4GB of RAM Realtek RTL8111E So, Any Help? -Discount_Mac
  16. Hello everyone, I'm getting these error at verbose boot, It waits at this line a little bit long. I think it's a DSDT error: Here is my DSDT:DSDT.zip Could someone help me fix this? Thank you all!.
  17. This follows my previous guide for El Capitan. 0. What works and does not Works - CPU power management - QE/CI on Integrated Intel HD 4000 - Keyboard/Trackpad - HDMI and LVDS output - Audio: Headphone, speaker, HDMI. - Ethernet - Camera - Battery info - Bluetooth - USB Does NOT work - Internal Wifi. Workaround: USB wifi or replace your internal wifi with a supported mPCI-e card. - Sleep: does not work with an USB wifi. Workaround: Replace your internal wifi with a supported card. - VGA out. Workaround: Use an « active » HDMI to VGA adapter. I use this way to connecting my laptop to projectors. - Discrete AMD GPU - Card reader. Workaround: Use an external USB card reader. 1. Specs My Dell Inspiron 15R SE has the following specs: - Intel Core i7 3632QM with Intel HD Graphic 4000 - 8GB + 4GB RAM (12GB total) - 128GB Samsung EVO SSD + 1TB HDD - AMD Radeon 7730M, won't be used by any Hackintosh build - Full HD 15.4" screen 2. Requirements - A Dell 7520, of course - An USB Stick, minimum 8GB. Any 8GB should work. - A pair of USB Mouse / Keyboard during the installation and fixes (you can use your built in keyboard and touchpad later) - An existing Hackintosh (or a real Mac, if you have any ) If you don't, I suggest to start from lower versions (or use Hackintosh Zone Yosemite distro as your base, follow my previous short guide) - Downloaded «Install macOS Sierra» from App Store. - A GPT-partitioned hard drive. This is required since El Capitan (and was not the case with Yosemite). - A 20GB (minimum) partition as the target. - MacPwn 3. Create USB Install. For full guide please see here - Boot your existing Hackintosh or real Mac. - First you need to be sure that you have downloaded the app «Install macOS Sierra» from App Store. - Use Disk Utilities to partition your USB stick with 1 partition in GPT mode, and choose «OS X Extended (Journaled)» as partition type. Note: don't use any space in label of your disk. - Run MacPwn. - Press Continue. Then Continue and Continue. Agree the license agreement. Change Install Location, then Install to Specific Disk and choose your USB stick. Click Customize to choose your desired boot loader. I prefer Chameleon. Finally, Install. - Be patient. It's quite slow. - Reboot after finishing creating you USB for installation. 4. Install - During boot, press F12 to have boot list. Choose your USB to start. Use 'IntelCapriFB=4' to boot the installation. - It should boot directly to the installation UI. Choose language. - On top menu, select Utilities and Disk Utility. - Format your target partition as OS X Extended (Journaled). - Exit Disk utility. - Select Install, choose your newly formatted partition. Follow the instruction. Wait for a while (in my case I waited around 10 minutes). - It will restart your computer as soon as it finishes the file copy. - You still need to boot from USB. Hit F12 during boot to show boot list. Choose your USB to start. Use 'IntelCapriFB=4', select your installed partition and press Enter. - You will be able to see user creation. Follow the instructions on screen. When you get to your desktop, welcome to macOS Sierra! 5. Fix boot loader Clover is a nice bootloader for macOS Sierra. Get latest version from Sourceforge, install it into ESP, choose boot0ss while installing. 6. Device fixes 6.1. Built-in trackpad and keyboard Download EMlyDinEsH's Smart Touchpad kext, version 4.6.5 and install it with any kext utility. Don't forget to remove any ApplePS2 kext in your /System/Library/Extensions 6.2. Intel HD 4000 for HDMI output - I've successfully finished patching AppleIntelFramebufferCapri to support both LVDS and HDMI at the same time. Delete /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext and use the attached one instead - Note: add (or change) IntelCapriFB=3 in your Clover's config.plist. 6.3. Audio VoodooHDA works for me. I use version 2.8.8. Simply download it and install it with your Kext utility. 6.4. CPU Power Management Works fine with macOS Sierra (official version) as long as you use ssdtPRGen.sh as instructed here 6.5. Ethernet Simply install this KingMaker's Realtek RTL8111-8168 kext with any of your kext utility and reboot, you will have ethernet working! 6.6. Screen Brightness and Disable AMD GPU Use provided SSDT/DSDT to fix screen brightness and to disable the discrete AMD 7730M GPU for better power consumption. 6.7. Battery info By default you will not be able to see Battery info. Install RehabMan's ACPI Battery Driver will fix this. 6.8. Wifi The integrated wifi doesn't work. At all. I used an external wifi dongle TP Link WN725N (v2) for Internet access. After that I replaced the internal wifi with a Atheros AR5B29 and it works natively

  20. Hi all, I recently successfully completed a dual boot with macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and Windows 10. I have a Dell XPS 15 9560 with 4k, i7, 32gb, and SK Hynix 1TB SSD. I've got pretty much everything working, however there are a couple issues I'd like help resolving if possible: #1 - I have a Dell U3818DW (38" ultrawide with built-in usb hub/"kvm"). The monitor works great over the usb-c cable! Full 3840x1600 resolution with no issues, and the usb hub/kvm works as well. I can use my keyboard and mouse no problem. The issue then is when the laptop goes to sleep... when I wake it up, the monitor works fine but the keyboard and mouse (really, the monitor's usb ports) are dead and replugging it does not fix it. The monitor will come back, the USB hub shows up under the "card" icon, but the inputs are not recognized. Built-in keyboard and mouse are unaffected. Any thoughts on this? I disabled Wake for Wifi Network Access as I've heard that causes issues, but it has no effect on this issue. #2 - I've got an Apple Watch that I use to unlock a real (late 2012 with updated wifi card) macbook pro and an i7-4790k/ASUS Maximus VII Hero-based hackintosh with an apple bcm94306 mini-pci card (with the full-size pci-e adapter + 4 antennas). I can unlock these after coming back to them with no issues. The XPS, on the other hand, stalls and stalls for about 10 seconds and then finally just shows the password box. I read somewhere that disabling Wake for Wifi Network Access can help with this, but it was already disabled when I enabled the Apple Watch unlock feature. I've tried going to the login window via the user switcher and it won't attempt apple watch unlock, so I don't know how to test if it's a sleep (bluetooth+wifi?) issue or not. #3 - Not really an issue per-se but does the trackpad support on these laptops just suck? None of my multitouch stuff works. Scrolling with 2 fingers works, 2-finger right clicking works OK, but nothing with 3 fingers works except exposé and that only works 1 of 5 tries. Cursor jumps around wildly if I accidentally rest my finger on it while another one is moving, too. I tried the extra kext in the @KNNSpeed thread but it seemed to make things worse.
  21. Hi everyone! My pc specs are these: Dell Optiplex 3010 SFF mobo: Dell 042P49 cpu: i3-3240 gpu: hd2500 (will be added a new gt710 next week) USB created with HackintoshZone restoreSierra from my macbook pro. So, I've installed from usb after setting up (I hope correctly) the bios (legacy, uefi doesn't work properly I think) and, even if I've restarted after waiting so long when it said "less than a minute remaining", I can boot just fine into Sierra in my SSD ("Hackintosh") selecting, when I start/restart the pc, boot from Hackintosh. Everything works fine except graphics (I know hd2500 is not supported so I just bought an used gt710 that will arrive next week), audio (it worked 2 times after setting with clover configurator, then it stopped) and ethernet (I think it's faulty, anyway I've a wifi dongle that works fine). BUT if the usb created with restoreSierra.pkg is not connected I can see Clover bootloader but I can't see my SSD "Hackintosh" which is the drive Sierra is installed in. I'm pretty sure something in post installation (Clover configurator -> Boot secton) is missing, these are the steps I made after the automatic initial setup: Mount EFI partition of SSD (since is not mounted by default) Install Clover EFI in order to install Clover Legacy. Copy EFI folder from HZ usb Delete EFI folder from EFI partition of SSD Paste EFI folder from HZ to EFI partition of SSD When I restart the pc w/o usb plugged I can't see the SSD, the space over the rounded icons is empty except from BOOT from EFI (and if select it it reload the same thing). I hope someone could help me, this is my first step in hackintosh world Have a nice day

    Dell Latitude Compatibility

    Hello! I have a Dell Latitude D810 currently running Lubuntu 14.10. I would like to make it a hackintosh. Preferably somewhere around 10.6.. That's basically my only macOS experience. Can anyone tell me if this is compatible? I believe it is stock config but my grandpa (previous owner) might have added something. Specs I know of: Intel Centrino 40 GB hard disk originally had Windows XP dual booted with Ubuntu 10 (neither would boot) Thanks very much in advance for any help. This would be my first Hackintosh so sorry for my lack of knowledge on the subject

  25. Hi Y'all I have installed OSX in many desktops and some laptops since 10.4 so I am a little experienced on the subtleties of the process. I recently installed Sierra from El Capitan and then High Sierra on my desktop. Not bragging just to state that I know how to do this. I ask help after 3 days of searching in the forum and elsewhere, trying to apply some concepts read to no avail. Given this, I tried to install Sierra 10.12.6 in a Dell Inspiron 3458, Intel I3 (Haswell), 6 GB, and 128SSD. MoBo is Dell, Haswell ULT chipset and southbridge H8x/P8x (CPU-Z) Tried with a SSD already installed 10.12.6 which is working in a desktop and with the USB standard install. The result, in both cases and MANY config.plist options, BIOS options (the usual disable thread, vt etc) is the image attached. One can see the Clover Boot Selection screen has started to boot ( set to verbose), see the process until the +++++++++++++++ shows and then it resets WITHOUT a panic or any other message. The USB was used to set the desktop, which is Intel i7, and GT620 so the only big difference is the graphics card being integrated in the HD4400. The config.plist is attached, its bare minimum, inject intel, verbose, x86-64, CPUS=1, rootless, SMBIOS is a MacBookAir5,2 (also tried other smbios). I can not see what is crashing the system, presumably the kexts in the Clover Other directory which again are minimum and most recent, FakeSMC, IntelGraphicsFixUp, lilu, NullCPUPowerManagement. Clover was installed using UEFI option cause the Laptop does not see a non UEFI drive (no bootable device found....). EFI/Boot/bootx64efi is present. Ill appreciate any pointers or links that can help solve this. Thanks. Sorry, had to post it to see a similar one. Please disregard. config.plist.zip
