    Dell Inspiron 15-7548

    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
  2. I just got a Dell Inspiron 7352 Broadwell i7-5500u HD5500 and made it into a perfect MacBook Air7,2 with everything working. I installed Yosemite, El Capitan and macOS Sierra. Here is how I did it. For those who have no mac to create an 8GB installer, watch the videos. 1. To boot the installer use ig-platform-id 16160006, when everything is done boot with 16260006 for full QE/CI. 2. Use Rehabman config.plist file and edit some. 3. Make sure to use all the newest and greatest kexts from Rehabman for perfect running system, especially with macOS Sierra. 4.Patch ALC255 using AppleALC.kext will get HDMI and all audio ports detection perfectly. 5. For more information on this laptop. Choose the MacBook Air 7,2 with SMBIOS MBA71 will run faster with macOS Sierra then SMBIOS MBA72. -El Capitan on Dell Inspiron 7352 Broadwell i7-5500u -Create Clover boot partition using BootDiskUtility. -Extract HFS from macOS Sierra using 7zip command line. -Create macOS Sierra USB Installer with Clover 3974 -Install macOS Sierra and El Capitan on external usb drive before restore it to the internal hard drive. -Post macOS Sierra Installation. -Patch AppleHDA on Realtek ALC255. -Patch DSDT & SSDT The best patches to get this laptop to sleep/wake/audio/HDMI are (we don't need to patch all): * Null Ethernet - set a real Mac Address - use the one for the original wifi that will be replaced. * Rename _DSM to _XDSM. * Audio Layout id = 13 = 0x0D. * Pnlf_Haswell_Broadwell. * Fix WAK Arg0 V2. * Fix IRQ. * Fix SMBUS. * Fix USB3_PRW 0x6D. * Rename B0D3 to HDAU both DSDT and SSDT. * Patch _Q1D and _Q1C for backlight keyboard. -Install El Capitan 10.11.6 to Internal Hard Drive and Clover UEFI. -Install Fuse to write to NTFS Windows Partition. -Replace DW1560 Dual band Wifi and Bluetooth 4.0 BCM94352Z. Cheers, Louis
  3. 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
  4. - 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. We change this to 20 so that OS X will detect 512mb. 05 03 00 etc is the display device, as you can see, only the internal LCD is defined, so we need to add the HDMI outputs. The default ones from device id 03006601 only detect the display output, no sound. I've taken the HDMI devices from device id 03006601 and added them corrected to 04006601. It looks like this: 04 00 66 01 01 02 04 02 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 20 10 07 00 00 10 07 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 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 02 05 00 00 00 08 00 00 07 04 00 00 03 04 00 00 00 08 00 00 81 00 00 00 04 06 00 00 00 08 00 00 81 00 00 00 More information about this subject can be found here: http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2945-guide-for-enabling-vga-and-hdmi-in-intel-hd4000-gpu/ - 6. AppleGraphicsPowerManagement. Switched to a new model. To edit this kext, copy it from /System/Library/Extensions to ~/Desktop. Now right click on the kext, and show package contents. Open Contents and open the Info.plist with Plisteditor. Now search for the following: Mac-4B7AC7E43945597E Under this, you will find something like the following code (Select the whole IGPU section): Replace it with the following: Save the file, and install the edited kext. - 6. AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. If you do not have an unlocked bios, or the patch option enabled in Clover, you need to patch this kext to prevent kernel panics. To edit this kext, open Terminal and type the following: sudo -s *password* I have included a file called: aicpm.sh, just drag and drop it in the Terminal window, type "y" to patch the kext. You're done. Patch: Old Guide: How to install Clover and add it to the UEFI Boot menu: - Be careful when replacing the current boot loader, your system may become unbootable if you skip a step, or do not pay attention!

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.

    Classic Hackintosh

    Have found an old Dell laptop with the following specs: -Intel Pentium III M with 1.2GHz -Intel 830MP -512MB -16MB ATI Radeon Mobility M6 -40 GB HDD Can it run Mac Os X Tiger and when yes which patched release do I need? Couldnt found anything, probably everything is already down.

    Best place to start?

    I'm brand new here. I have inherited a nicely upgraded Dell XPS 8500 with an AMD Radeon HD 7770 -2 GB (Dell OEM). Most information I have seen so far leads me to believe that this system is not too difficult to run OS X on. I've searched InsanelyMac up and down, and haven't found much recent information on this system, unfortunately. I would prefer to install El Capitan or Sierra, and am aware that there is a display sleep issue with AMD video cards. I'm also aware that this video card may have issues at boot that can be circumvented using a 3rd part kext named verde.kext, that can either be loaded via EFI or by installing to the hard drive's System folder. Some of the system particulars - Sandy Bridge core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz. Intel H77 Chipset. Realtek ALC887 audio, Realtek 8111E NIC. Intel USB 3.0 and Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics. Integrated graphics output through HDMI or VGA. And of course, the Radeon HD. I also have concerns because of some posts I've see regarding Sandy Bridge and power management. Any opinions on installing something newer than Mavericks on this unit? Is the Pandora Box installer a good choice here? I'm assuming that Clover is preferable at this time to Chameleon. And, finally would it be advisable to attempt to get it running without the Radeon installed and then tackle that as a separate battle? Every time I start reading about framebuffers, my eyes glaze over. Thanks
  8. Hello friends, I'm trying to do a Hackintosh on a Dell Inspiron 3543 - using Clover+Yosemite. Before installing mac I need to change DVMT pre-allocated memory to 96MB. I followed step 2.2 from this tutorial: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/305710-guide-intel-hd-graphics-5500-on-os-x-yosemite-10103/ I successfully got address and value to change DVMT but when I run this command in EFI shell it gives me this error, internal command not recognized. I am using UEFI Shell from clover. My Laptop Specs: Dell Inspiron 15 - 3543 Intel Core i5-5200U Intel HD Graphics 5500 4Gb Ram NVIDIA Geforce 820M Other requirements to install Mac: GPT partition style HFS+ Partition UEFI boot Secure boot off AHCI enabled Virtualization off Is there any other command to edit this ? Help me in this please Thanks in Advance
  9. Hi, i'm a new User here. I tried to install a Yosemite on a Dell Optiplex 755. I installed with Clover, and after a few problems during installation it worked. When I use the system after installation, the only times I can start the location, language, and adjust the keyboard and everything seems to work. But when I try to perform a reboot, it hangs right after the user login. First, the hard disk works a bit, but then nothing seems to happen. I did a little searching on the forums and came across references, suggesting that there may be an error in the graphics switching. But I'm not sure myself. But in the recovery installation, I can boot without problems. What can I do to locate the problem? I am using an AMD / ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT, but still have the internal graphics card, an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100. Which one should I take? Can any of you help me? Do you have to install as any extension? Thank you for your help. Dieter
  10. I've got this system up and running and it seems to be a decent hackable system for <$500. I got a 2nd 1TB hard drive and use Clover to dual-boot Windows 8.1 and Yosemite. Here are the specs: Intel core i5 Haswell CPU (works OOB) 8GB DDR3 RAM (works OOB) 1TB hard drive (works OOB) Intel HD4600 Graphics (works OOB with HDMI w/ CI/QE, haven't tried VGA) DVD-RW (works OOB) 8-1 Media Card Reader (works OOB) Realtek 8111G Ethernet (works with RehabMan's kext injected at Clover boot) Realtek ALC662VD audio (rear line-out working with patched version of VooDooHDA injected at Clover boot -- link ) Dell/Atheros 1705 Wifi B/G/N + Bluetooth 4.0 (not working. WiFi not recognized, Bluetooth will pair but won't connect devices) iMessage/Facetime (Still troubleshooting) Sleep (haven't tried) I'd really like to get Bluetooth working, and it's very close but I'm not sure what's wrong. The system will see bluetooth devices and pair with them correctly, but the connection gets lost after pairing. inspiron-3847-desktop_Reference Guide_en-us.pdf

  14. Hi guys I've recently bought a 755 for dead cheap and looking forward to give him a newlife, so I need our community guys help as I'm not familiar with hackintoshing old dualcore systems. Below are the specs for the system. Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2160 1.8GHz CPU Intel Q32 Express chipset 3 GB DDR2 RAM (8 GB maximum) 80 GB SATA hard drive DVD±RW drive Floppy drive Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 with up to 256 MB shared memory Nvidia 8400GS Does anyone had any success installing and running mavericks or yosemite? If so could you please let me know which installation method works as I always prefer for vanilla install. As I've done some research in which few of them had problem with kexts while installing and in which they replaced them from older OSX versions. So to be honest I don't have much time to play with installation and for that reasons I'm looking for someone who had already played with it and had success, so that I can learn from there. Many ¬Thanks
  15. [Assim que conseguir resolver o problema vou transformar em um tópico guia para ajudar quem tem o mesmo notebook que eu] Olá a todos! Estou tentando instalar o Mac OS no meu Dell Inspiron 5457, seguem as especificações dele: Estou utilizando esse tutorial como base para a instalação: Esse até agora foi o mais longe que eu consegui ir nessa instalação, em anexo tem uma imagem com o erro que acontece quando eu inicio a instalação. Tentei procurar sobre compatibilidade com o meu computador e não achei nada, achei apenas um tópico em um fórum que tem uma pessoa com o mesmo problema que eu mas não apresentaram nenhuma resolução. Agradeço a todos desde já! EFI Folder.rar
  16. Hello, I indeed need your help to get QE / CI on my Dell Optiplex 755 (Intel Q35 Express Chipset Family, Mac OS X 10.8.2), I tried with all the tutorials that I 'I could find but I can not. I would like to also have the 1680X1050 to finally have a fluid YouTube and use Final Cut. I do not speak french so sorry if I in some difficulty with English. Thank you in advance.
  17. [solved since writing] For help to others. Installed AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext in S/L/E, repaired permissions and all works (with -f at present) with Dell 435 BIOS set to RAID. Did not remove any other kexts as there seemed to be no other AHCIInjccetors that ahd been installed. Now just have to work out how to change windows. --------------------------------- I have Dell 435MT (BIOS options are only ATA and RAID , which many says ==AHCI). I have a working dual boot system with Win7x64 and OSX 10.8.2 (performed with myHack awith 10.8 and then upgraded to 10.8.2) - there is no DSDT used.Having ordered a SSD I realise now I need to change to AHCI and need to get it working in OSX first before I change Windows (where I can change I believe with registry change). If I change the BIOS to RAID(Dell===AHCI) and boot with -f then the system hangs at [starting PCI Configuration] but there is no Kernal Panics. I had thought that as OSX was AHCI based the kext would be present and it would adapt with -f but I obviously need to make soem adjustment. preseumably myHack did not install these at the time. Do I need to do a reinstall something I would like to avoid? I have found two kexts (AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA and AHCI_3rdParty_SATA) do I need to add these to S/L/E to get it to work. I also found AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext which has been used successfully with a Dell 435 and the instructions say "Also included IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector in it, for all drives to show internal and DVD keyboard eject/DVD.app fix. RAID ID's are also included for all the AHCI/RAID switchable controllers I could find. Remove other AHCI or BlockStorage injectors and install to S/L/E" Is this kext what I should use and what are the other AHCI or BlockStorage Injectors I should remove? Thanks for any help anybody can give.

  20. Run OSX Mavericks on a Dell Latitude E6320 This tutorial will describe the steps to install Mavericks on a Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M. The installation goes to the latest version of 10.9.2, 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 Jake Lo from OSX Latitude.com. 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 Jake Lo from OSX Latitude.com for helping me out with installing And all other forum members who have posted in my topic and helping out the community. 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M – 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 – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the Mavericks 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 10.9 to – For me, I used a 250GB partition to install 10.9 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor. myHack – myHack is a mac program that modifies the official OS X Mavericks installer, and writes it ontoa USB Drive. You can then use this myHack USB Drive to run the Mavericks installer on a PC, myHack works with Mac OS X Snow Leopard and newer. Install_E6320.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. Note: The files for number 9 "Install_E6320.zip" contains the following files and directory's :Extra - Chameleon Wizard - Kext Utility - ShowHiddenFiles - MyHack - Wireless app2 - Wlan_TP-LINK – Brightness Fix v1.1 – VoodooHDA Prefpane 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M Laptop computer with the following specs. NOTE: A Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor is recommended to use the full potential of OS Mavericks because the on board wifi doesn't work. - Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.5GHz, 3MB cache, Dual Core - 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM - Western Digital 250GB HDD - INTEL HD3000 Video - Intel 825xx onboard network - Bluetooth radio onboard (works OOB) - IDT 92HDxxx HD audio onboard - TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor - Apple Magic Trackpad (only @home) - Apple Wireless Keyboard US (only @home) - Apple Magic Mouse 4. Preparing your SSD or HDD for install on a MBR-partitioned drive If you intent to install OSX86 Mavericks 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 Management program. 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 Mavericks). Done! 5. Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk (USB) Start OSX Maqvericks, Mountain (Lion) or Snow Leopard to prepare your USB Flash drive Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive thru Disk Utility in Mac OS X: Extract the zip file Install_E6320.zip to your Mac OS X desktop If you don't have already installed myHack then copy from folder "Install_E6320" myHack-3.3.1 to your desktop and launch myHack and follow the steps Plug your USB Drive into your computer, and start myHack. Enter your Mac OS X password when the app begins, and setup process will begin. When myHack prompts you, select “Create OS X Installer” and Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk”. Select your USB Drive as the installation destination (mine is named “E6320”). myHack will ask you for the location of your copy of OS X 10.9 Mavericks. It’s usually faster to “Browse Manually” for the Mavericks installation app. myHack will begin to set up your installer USB Drive. Click “Ok” when myHack asks to erase your USB Drive, so that it can begin the setup process. From here, the setup process is pretty automatic. myHack will erase your USB Drive, copy the contents of the Mavericks installer app onto it, and then modify those contents to be bootable on a PC. Near the end of the process, myHack will ask you whether you want to apply the MBR patch to the USB Drive. Click “Yes” if you plan on installing Mac OS X on a hard drive where windows is already installed or “No” if you wanna installing Mac OS X on the entire hard drive. This entire process should take about 10 – 15 minute, though it may take up an hour if your USB Drive is slow. 6. Adding the Extra folder to your USB drive Now, we need to put the Extra directory for the E6320 on the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Start myHack, Enter your Mac OS X password when the app begins. When myHack prompts you, select “Install Extra”. myHack will ask you “Select target volume to run myHack on…”, choose your “myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk” and choose “Ok”. myHack will prompt you “Do you want to use the generic Extra that comes with myHack or specify tour own?” choose “Use My Own” and press “Ok”. Browse to your early extracted “Install_E6320 – Extra” folder on your desktop and choose “Open”. myHack will copy the Extra folder to your “myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk”. When finished you will see the message "myHack Finished" press ok and Quit to close myHack. Eject all mounted drives (this is not necessary) Eject your USB Drive 10. Done ! 7. Bios Settings Dell Latitude E6320 Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OSX Mavericks. 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 Mavericks. 8. Installing OSX Mavericks from your USB drive Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install OSX Mavericks onto the partition or Hard Drive. Boot from your USB drive. During boot you will see the message “Eread Bios error” ignore it the USB Drive goes further to boot to the OS X Mavericks Installer. 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 OSX Mavericks to. NOTE : when you install it on a partition skip step 5 - 10 see Chapter 4. (If you install Mavericks 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 “MAVERICKS”). Click on the Erase… button. Done close Disk Utility and go further with the installation process. Choose your HDD or Partition to install Mavericks to. The installation process will take about 23 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD. myHack will then ask to remove a couple of unnecessary kext files—click “Yes” for all of them. myHack will also prompt you to install an “Extra” folder. Choose the second option, which lets you install your “Extra” folder. Select the “Extra” folder from your USB Drive, and wait for the installer to finish. When finished remove your USB Drive and boot to your new OSX Mavericks. 9. Booting OSX Mavericks! Now that everything is finally prepared, you can go ahead and boot into OSX Mavericks. Thanks to myHack, you should be able to boot to OS X Mavericks from your laptop’s hard drive immediately. You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for OSX Mavericks. Go through that process to setup OSX Mavericks. Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet". The installation process will take about 3 minutes. Done!. 10. Adjust some settings in OS X 10.9 Once in 10.9 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. 11. 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, the only thing is that after login the wireless app starts up and you have must close it every time, therefore I have made a script to launch the program after login and close it after 5 seconds. For installing the driver go to the folder “Install_E6320 – Wlan_TP-LINK”. Launch the Installer.pkg and install the software, after install you will get the message to restart. Choose restart to restart you laptop. After restart the software will start the Wireless App. Choose you desired network and add it to your profile. Now we can install the login script. Go to “System Preferences – Users & Groups”, go to tab Login Items. Choose the + sign and browse to the folder “Install_E6320” and choose “Wireless App2”. Close System Preferences. 12. Install Brightness Fix You can install the brightness fix for the E6320 so that your laptop boots with the desired brightness Go to your Install_E6320 folder on your desktop and copy the folder “BrightnessFix_v1.1” to your desktop. You can adjust your brightness settings before install, open the folder “BrightnessFix_v1.1” you will se a file called “brightnessFix.plist” open it with textedit and you will see a value at <String> 0,5. You can adjust the setting from 0,0 till 1,0, when you have set your value save the file ( I have set the value to 0,8). Run the installer to install the brightness fix, after installing reboot your laptop to see it works. 13. Enable find my Mac in iCloud To make full advantage of you Hackintosh you can enable Find My Mac in iCloud. (doesn’t work with TP-LINK Wireless lan Nano adaptor) Download the Rocvery HD Updater for Mavrick 10.9 from Mega to your desktop. Open “Recovery_HD_Updater_10.9_13A603”. Run RecoveryHDUpdater.command, you will get a message that it will open a script choose “Open” , and a new window will be opening. Read the text in the window “ Please drag in DESTINATION disk for Recovery HD partition and press Enter:” Drag you HDD in the window, enter your Mac OS X password and the script will running, you will see a lot of text fly by after installing you will see the tex “ Process completed” close terminal and reboot. 6. After login you can enable “Find My Mac” in “System Preferences – iCloud”. 14. Install VoodooHDA Prefpane You can install the VoodooHDA Prefpane for adjust your sound settings. Go to folder “Install_E6320 and run program VoodooHDA.prefpane. You will be ask to install it for a single user or for everyone, choose what you want. After install you will see in “System Preferences” a icon VoodooHDA. Now you can adjust your volume settings 15. Update to 10.9.2 If your "Mac OS X Install App" contains already the newest Mavericks Version you don't have to update the system and you can skip this step. To check your current version go to "About this Mac". 1. Don't update thru Software Update download the combo update here Download from the apple site. 2. Run the 10.9.2 combo update walk thru the steps. 3. After installation there will be a message saying to restart your system, CHOOSE RESTART. 4. During reboot the update will be installing this take about 10 minutes. 5. After the reboot check “About this Mac” you will see version “10.9.2” 16. Finished! You’ve successfully installed OSX Mavericks onto your Dell Latitude E6320. run os x mavericks 10.9 E6320.pdf
  21. Where do I begin? I have ML 10.8.5 running well on a Dell Optiplex 960, but it won't recover from sleep mode. I have to force a hard boot. FWIW, I have the BIOS set to S3, not S1. Is a DSDT required for this particular machine? Or is it something that can be done with Chameleon Wizard? How do I obtain or create a custom DSDT for this machine, so it will recover from sleep mode? Thanks - any help would be appreciated.

    Salve a tutti, sono riuscito a installare IATKOS L2 nel portatile in questione usando i seguenti settaggi: Bios: default, eccetto nella sezione dedicata agli hard disk selezionare “ATA”, non sono riuscito a farlo funzionare in “AHCI” e chiaramente in modalita”IRRT” credo sia impossibile. Avviando in modo AHCI “verbose mode” si ferma su “PCI configuration end, bridges 8 devices 20”, mentre se attivo la virtualizzazione dal bios carica qualche riga in più e si blocca su” RTC: only single RAM bank ( 128 Bytes)”. Settando nel bios la modalità ATA ho dovuto eliminare “Elliott Force Legacy RTC.kext” che m’impediva di avviare in questa modalità. Ho provato anche a cambiare gli schemi di partizionamento del disco fisso ma non cambia nulla. Di seguito le opzioni d’installazione da me usate: boot –chameleon graphic enabler built in ethernet cpu throttler original apple boot logo fakesmc disabler rtc evoreboot ahci sata non ahci sata voodoohda 2.2 usb ps2 laptop battery nvenabler intel-gigabyte kext aggiuntivi: Sostituito voodoohda con altra versione che corregge qualche bugs installato dellbluetoothhci. Vorrei qualche consiglio per il problema di avvio in modalità AHCI, il restart che non va (neanche lo stop) il lettore sd con voodoosdhc riconosce le schede ma non il formato (mi chiede di inizializzare).

  23. Hey InsanelyMac, its been a while. I used to be very active back in the day under the name erei33 and then retired from the newsteam as I played too many PC games to have a hackintosh. Anyway I haven't been gaming, so I decided its the best time to try out OS X. Dell Studio 1558 1.6 Ghz Intel i7 720 QM (4 cores) 8 GB RAM 1 GB ATI Radeon HD5470 (working natively even before I added device ID) Ethernet works post ###### with Lnx2Mac's Realtek driver included in the latest ######. Ethernet probably works native too. Anyway for the life of me I cannot figure out wireless, I've read these stickies, I've tried all kinds of kexts from osx86.net. I've read the guides on studio 1558. I've been stuck here for a couple days, and prior to OS X I spent a miserable 4 days using OpenSuse and Linux Mint. So I'm about to the point of returning defeated to Windows 7 (which is good anyway). Theres conflicting information, my laptop either has Intel wireless n6200 or dell wireless 1520 (broadcom 4322 rebrand), even dell.com cannot tell me with my service tag. Does anyone have any idea at all on how I could get Wireless working? Any help would be greatly appreciated. It looks like next time ill pay the $800 dollar premium and go Mac Book Pro lol.
  24. Hello all, longtime lurker and first of all - thanks for all the amazing info the community here has supplied me with! This forum has helped me put together two great builds in the past (x58 on gigabyte boards - mostly foolproof, but still great info/learning to be found on these boards...) So here's the current project - I have an old Dell Inspiron 9400. Its got a 1.83ghz core duo (not core2duo - so 32bit only I believe), 2gb ddr2, Sigmatel 9200HD audio, Broadcom 440 nic, 30gb ssd (placeholder for troubleshooting this install), and a Radeon x1400 Mobility. LINK to full specs I had decent luck running everything on this system at 10.6.3 - audio working, wireless working, basic video functionality (x1400 unrecognized however). I was also running with only one core throughout this part of the install (OSX then identified as a core solo). I've since added in TSCsync kext and activating both cores works, although I can only boot currently with -x/safemode (see below) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ After things were going smoothly I installed the 440 broadcom kext, voodoo HDA 2.2, and my best guesses for the x1400 Radeon kexts - I used RadeonHD.kext (from this thread - mine was the 5/26/2010 - before extension modes/nubs added in), and ATIx1000 kext with <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x71451002</string> added in (supposedly the x1400 ID...) ....From this point on out things have gotten progressively worse, I keep saving backups of kexts I'm editing and trying different combinations of bios settings, kext files, and workarounds. I'm in over my head and need some help from some pros in order to sort this out and continue learning. I have a feeling I'm doing something really idiotic in terms of my boot problems. As of now I cannot boot normally, only with safe mode. Also, booting with verbose/-v results in the images below. "Photo-1" shows a snapshot of verbose and "Photo-2" (apologies, slightly blurry) is fractions of a second prior to the next screen appearing "Photo-3". This chain of events is consistent and always occurs when booting with only the "-v" flag. I have also reproduced this with and without my boot plist i386 setting and PCIRootUID=1 (not sure if I even need these??). As you can see in the pic, "Photo-3" is a scrambled grey bar on a white page. This occurs every time following the verbose boot. Attempting to boot with no flags results in a hang on the apple loading screen (wheel stops spinning and boot hangs/system unresponsive). Only means of successful boot at this point is using safe mode.
