xangel9626 posted a topic in Installation GuidesThis guide is for installing OS X Yosemite on a Dell Inspiron 1720/Vostro 1700 with Nvidia graphics. It is experimental as I haven’t worked on any bugs or updated any of the kexts to see if anything will work better. From what I came up with so far is that iMessage and Facetime will not let you log in. All hardware seems to be working as it did in Mavericks and Mountain LionAgain, I have not done any tweaking, so if anyone finds any issues and finds a fix, please post them here for everyone else. Credit goes to everyone that created/put together the utilites and kexts used in this tutorial. There are too many people to list, I want to thank you all for doing your part to make Hackintosh a reality. SYSTEM STATUS Working: · Trackpad with 2 finger scrolling and Tapping · USB Bluetooth · Graphics with QE/CI · Ethernet · Wi-Fi · Audio · Battery Icon · iCloud/iMessage · AirDrop · Reboot · Auto and Lid Sleep · CPU Speed Stepping Issues: · Waking from Sleep causes USB Bluetooth to mess up, removing/replacing the USB dongle fixes it. · Shutdown does not kill power · About This Mac shows 15 Inch Macbook Pro, but who cares · iMessage and Facetime don’t work THINGS YOU NEED 1. Yosemite Chameleon Installer App from this website http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/301138-new-usb-installer-os-x-yosemite-chameleon-r2570-v7/ 2. Yosemite installer downloaded from the App Store 3. 8+GB USB drive 4. DSDT for your system patched with the following: · DTGP Method · HPET · IRQs to fix USB Devices Randomly Not Working · USB patch to fix sleep · PCI Patch · RTC Patch · SMBUS patch · IDE fix (optional but added) · Clamshell fix (optional but added) · Shutdown fix for XPSm1530 (optional but added)* · USB Drive Sleep Fix for XPSm1530 (optional but added)* · Removed AZAL/HDEF section 5. Kext Utility app (find in Download section of InsanelyMac) CREATE THE INSTALLER 1. Download the Yosemite installer app from the App Store and leave it in your Applications folder. 2. Place the Yosemite Chameleon Installer app in your Applications folder. 3. Run the Yosemite Chameleon Installer app. 4. Choose Installer_OSX_Yosemite_Chameleon. 5. Select the device you are making your installer on, the app will format the disk for you 6. Click Continue on the installer screens and then select – Installer>Chameleon and Support SMBios>Laptop, then continue and let it do its thing. 7. Copy the Yosemite Chameleon Installer app to the root of your USB drive (Needed during post install) 8. Copy your DSDT to the /Extra folder 9. Reboot Laptop and boot into the Installer USB and install Yosemite (I couldn’t get the trackpad working so I used a USB keyboard with built in trackpad, I’m sure if you just switch out the VoodooPS2Controller kext with the one in my Mavericks tutorial, it would work) POST INSTALLATION 1. Reboot laptop and boot from the USB installer, but select your installation hard drive as the boot device. I didn’t need to use any flags, I think –f and –v are already included in the boot.plist. 2. Once booted, create your account. 3. Run the Yosemite Chameleon Installer app, this time choose Postinstaller_OSX_Yosemite_Chameleon, choose – Post Installer>Chameleon and Driver Kext>FakeSMC>FakeSMC 4. Download the zip file attached 5. Open System/Library/Extensions folder 6. Delete AppleRTC, AppleHDA, and AppleSmartBatteryManager 7. Extract the Zip file 8. Place all the kexts included in the zip file into the System/Library/Extensions folder 9. Build the extensions.mkext by dragging the extensions folder to Kext Utility 10. Copy the extensions.mkext to System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup 11. Make sure the org.chameleon.Boot.plist containts the following <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>ShowInfo</key> <string>No</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1440x900x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>1</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>No</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>kext-dev-mode=1 max_valid_dma_addr=1024 darkwake=0</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> 12. Reboot, if everything went ok, everything should be working as expected. One last thing, you can update to 10.10.2, just delete AppleHDA and reboot to get audio working again.

xangel9626 posted a topic in Installation GuidesFirst and foremost, I want to thank fusion71au for his assistance with getting my system up and running with Mavericks. My system Vostro 1700 – Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 – 4GB DDR2 667 RAM – Nvidia Geforce 8600M GT – HP rebranded to Apple Airport BCM94322MC – IOGear Bluetooth 2.1 USB – Sigmatel Stac9205 Audio – 17 inch 1440x900 Glossy Screen Of course, make adjustments for your system as necessary. I have no instructions for the DSDT patching because fusion71au did the patching for me. Also, if you need to do the rebranding of your wireless card, there are plenty of resources on the net that can help you out. For the Post Installation, I did all the work from within my Mountain Lion installation on a separate hard drive, you might be able to boot from the installer drive to do the work, but I didn’t bother trying as I had issues in the past and it was just easier to do it from a running system. Instead of making a kext package, I’m providing links to give proper credit for others finding or modifying kexts to work with specific devices. Only use the Kexts that I list in the guide, there are others in the packages that are not needed.

Had to remove AppleHDA.kext after the computer restarted to get sound working because of the conflict between VoodooHDA and AppleHDA. UPDATE #2 Installed the 10.9.2 update from the App Store. Removed AppleHDA.kext to fix audio. Everything still works. UPDATE #3 Installed the 10.9.3 update from the App Store. Removed AppleHDA.kext to fix audio. Everything is still working as it should. UPDATE #4 Installed the 10.9.4 update from the App Store. Removed AppleHDA.kext to fix audio. Everything is still working as it should. UPDATE #5 Installed the 10.9.5 update from the App Store.

I am trying to install Mavericks 10.9 GM on my Vostro 1700. I cannot get it to recognize internal hard drives. I was able to install it on a USB hard drive but it will not work with internal. I have tried changing the AppleACPIPlatform, AppleAHCIPort, and IOPCIFamily kexts to the 10.8.4 versions, but all that does is cause me to have a kernel panic associated with AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. My BIOS is set to AHCI. I made my own installer using only my DSDT and a few kexts that I used for my ML installer. I seem to be having the same issue when upgrading to 10.8.5 from 10.8.4, that's why I decided to give 10.9 a try. When installed to and booting from a USB hard drive, I get working trackpad with 2 finger scrolling and tapping, QE/CI with Geforce 8600M GT, Ethernet, Bluetooth, Audio, Microphone/Line-In, Sleep, iCloud, and iMessage. Issues that I know I'm having are, of course, no internal hard drives, I have an HP BCM4322MC wireless card rebranded to Apple Airport that shows up in OS X but only gives me connection failed when I connect to my router, and no SD Card. Any help figuring out my issues would be appreciated, just let me know any information that you need. Thanks in advance.
Anyone here trying to get Mavericks installed on their Inspiron 1720/Vostro 1700? I've been attempting, but I keep running into problems. MyHacks 3.2 Beta 8 makes an installer, but it doesn't start up, just gives me error messages. Tried making an installer from scratch using the Lion/Moutain Lion instructions, but I'm getting kernel panics on it. If anyone has attempted to do it or has it working, let me know, I'd like to see if I can get it going on mine.
