    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!

    Iatkos dell precision m4400

    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). La grafica va quasi bene 1280x800 la risoluzione più alta non so se si potrebbe fare meglio.

  6. [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.

  10. Using Yosemite on a Dell Inspiron 3542. Pressing the power button does nothing currently, I want it to show the power dialog.
  11. 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

    Dell inspiron 1564

    Hello Everyone I really liked to install Mac os x snow leopard 10.6.6 But i don't know how to do this I am looking for tutorials for this laptop but i don't find anything Can anyone help me to find an tutorial for my laptop Here are my specs: Intel Core i3 M 330 @ 2.13GHz, 2133MHz, 2 core('s), 4 logics ATI Mobility Radeon HD4330 with 512MB Dedicated ram 4GB RAM BIOS Version: Dell Inc. A12 500GB Harddrive Operating systems: Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit Ubuntu 11.10 64Bit And also i want maybe to upgrade to lion but i readed that the graphics card will not work good
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.

    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
  17. 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
  18. [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

    Dell Inspiron 545

    Hi, i' m new to the hackintosh. I have a inspiron 545 which i want to convert to a hackintosh. My specs are: MEMORY : 8192MB (4X2048) 800MHZ DDR2 DUAL PROCESSOR : INTEL CORE 2 QUAD-CORE Q8300 HARD DRIVE : 1TB SERIAL ATA (7200RPM) GRAPHICS : 1024 MB NVIDIA GEFORCE GT220 WIRELESS : Dell NETWORK 1505 (802.11 N) PCIE What would be the distro for a hackintosh ? Thanks, Ajw901
  20. Hello, I have little OSX experience but have always attempted to get a working Hackintosh. Recently, I bought a Dell OptiPlex 790 with Intel Core i5 (w/ integrated graphics). I used the following process to install OSX (http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-ins...a-pc-tutorial/) All was well. I booted into the system (I had to use -x). Downloaded and ran ######, I selected the appropriate kexts (or so I thought). Went to boot as normal and was confronted with this (see picture). Can someone please advise me as to how to rectify this? I should add that I can successfully boot into the system using safe mode (-x). Also, I am unsure of how to enable the integrated graphics as I am stuck at 1024x768 resolution. All help is much appreciated.

  22. 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
  23. 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

    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.
  25. Followed the following: http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/01/install-osx-mavericks-on-pc-with-niresh.html http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286092-guide-1st-generation-intel-hd-graphics-qeci/ Few things minor things to do .... before installing mavericks go to "Customize" option and deselect "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" and select "IGPEnabler=Yes" under Graphics section. After installing the Mavericks and following the setup screen download Intel HD Graphics QECI 10.9.5.zip kexts from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/getdownload/5504-1st-gen-intel-hd-graphics-kexts/ and install them using Kext Wizard app and run fix permissions and rebuild cache from the same app. Open Finder and go to your Extra folder. Open the org.Chameleon.Boot.plist with TextEdit. Add the following code: <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> And restart.
