  1. This tutorial has been updated on GITHUB to 10.14 and 10.15 the tutorial on insanelymac got too fragmented for a simple forum thread and will not be updated, but still be used for discussion and hints, tips and tricks Dell XPS 15 (9550, Version of 2016) Sierra 10.13.1 Tutorial 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.

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. Hi all, I have a perfectly working Mojave installation on my Dell 3537, i5-4200U, Intel HD4400 Graphics, 8GB RAM. When I tried to upgrade using Catalina, it got stuck on showing '8 hours and 54 minutes remaining' and then the time started increasing instead of decreasing. So I decided to create a bootable USB and when I boot it, it always gets stuck on one of these two lines (sometime one comes before the other..): apfs_module_start: 1683: load: com.apple.filesystem.apfs, v1412 .... OR ApplePS2Controller: Notification consumer published: ApplePS2SynapticsTouchPad Things I have tried already and did nothing: - Removing VoodooPS2Controller kext and use external mouse/keyboard, - keep only minimal kexts in clover for booting (ethernet, smc etc) - clover patch to change ECDV to EC - Add SSDT-EC.aml to my patched ACPI folder in clover Next thing will try is removing VirtualSMC and use FakeSMC during installation, if anyone faced same issue and found a solution, please advise. Thanks CLOVER.zip
  3. This follows my previous guide for macOS Sierra. 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 still has the following specs (I haven't upgraded it since Yosemite) : - 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 16GB. Any 16GB 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 ) - Downloaded «Install macOS Mojave Beta» from App Store. - A GPT-partitioned hard drive - A 20GB (minimum) partition as the target. - Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher 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 Mojave» 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 Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher, select the installer app, select usb disk as target. - Be patient. It's quite slow. - Download and install Clover Bootloader v4658 to the usb disk, note to install using EFI boot only - Copy attached config.plist to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/ - Copy attached kexts to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/ - Download NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and put it in /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/ - Reboot after finishing creating your USB for installation. 4. Install - During boot, press F12 to have boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004 to boot the installation. - It should boot directly to the installation UI - Select Utilities and Disk Utility. - Format your target partition as OS X Extended (Journaled). APFS can be used but it's your own risks - Exit Disk utility. - Begin the install procedure - it should be there already. 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. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004, 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, rebuild kernel cache: sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -u / - Reboot, you should be able to use both LVDS and HDMI outputs (with default ig-platform-id 01660003, already patched using this guide) with proper kext and config.plist attached. Welcome to macOS Mojave! 5. Device fixes Most of the fixes are included in the attached kext zip. 5.1. CPU Power Management Works fine with macOS Mojave (official version) as long as you use ssdtPRGen.sh as instructed here. Don't forget to delete NullCPUPowerManagement.kext afterward. 5.2. 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 If you use this AR5B29, copy the attached AirPortAtheros40.kext into /System/Library/Extensions config.plist.zip kexts.zip AirPortAtheros40.kext.zip

    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?

  9. Hello everyone, I was able to install macOS Sierra 10.12.6 a few months ago successfully with working audio, internet, etc. But now I want to upgrade to High Sierra and am not sure whether or not it will be compatible with my system. (Tried to do it using a High Sierra USB. Wouldn't boot into installer, showed "+++++++++++++" or something.) My specs are: Dell Optiplex 3010 Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz (HD2500 Integrated Graphics) 4GB of RAM NVIDIA Quadro FX1800 (Want to use this GPU, have an extra Radeon HD7470 somewhere that I can also use in this if needed) Conexant CX20641 Audio Realtek RTL8111E Ethernet So, can I upgrade to High Sierra? Please let me know. EDIT: I kept getting this error: (See attached image) Thanks -Discount_Mac
  10. An Idiot’s (My!) Guide to Installing Mac OS X Sierra 10.12.3 on a Dell Optiplex 780 Small Form Factor Before you begin What you will need: A Dell Optiplex 780 SFF (I did say it’s an idiot’s guide) A Radeon HD5450 Graphics Card (the on-board card is not supposed to work, although it did for me) A USB stick, at least 8GB The following downloads: Clover EFI bootloader from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ Clover Configurator (Vibrant Edition) from http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download-clover-configurator/ DSDT.aml.zip from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312656-guide-macos-sierra-1012-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790/ my_Optiplex_config.plist.zip from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312656-guide-macos-sierra-1012-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790/ AppleALC.kext from https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC/releases AppleIntelE1000e.kext from https://sourceforge.net/projects/osx86drivers/ FakeSMC.kext from https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-fakesmc-kozlek/downloads USB_Injector.kext from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312656-guide-macos-sierra-1012-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790/ boot1h from https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/how-do-you-fix-boot0af-error.109717/ What will be useful: A computer with access to the Internet (preferably NOT the Optiplex in case you need to download something halfway through) A camera/phone for taking photos of settings Another USB stick of about 2GB or more.

    Dell Inspiron 5370

    Hi there, I've decided to install Mac OS Mojave 10.14 on my laptop. I've installed it using the vanilla method (dosdude1 patcher, TINU, clover on USB drive)Actually I need to fix some things such as the CMD key (that changed from WIN key to L_ALT key), the brightness control and the fn keys (such as brightness up and down) N.B. I've actually ordered a DW1560 (BCM94352Z) WiFi M.2 card because my QCA9377 doesn't work. Below you can find my CLOVER CONFIG, the ioreg and the acpi/origin folder of CLOVER extracted using the F4 method. Dell Inspiron 5370 HW: CPU => i5-8250u GPU => Intel Graphics UHD 620 RAM => 8GB DDR4 2400MHz SSD => 256 GB M.2 WIFI/BT => QCA9377 (still waiting for the DW1560 wifi card) MacBook Pro di Ivan.ioreg ACPI DELL INSPIRON 5370 ORIGIN.zip CLOVER EFI.zip
  12. Hello all! I have successfully got my Hackbook online, using USB tethering. Thanks to Herve (can't use special characters, you know who you are!), I also got my audio working. I am very much ready to begin setting up iCloud, the App Store, and iMessage/FaceTime. Those services (especially the latter two) are what got me into hackintoshing. Problem: The listed services fail to sign me in. iCloud sign in from System Preferences returns "Unable to sign in because of a problem communicating with iCloud." FaceTime returns a registration process fail, the App Store reports that my computer can't be verified, and iMessage reports an activation error. However, iTunes works, except no Apple Music. HARDWARE: Intel Core i7-2630QM GeForce GT 525M (using integrated HD 3000 graphics instead) Custom Dell L502X A12 BIOS w/ UEFI support SOFTWARE: OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 AppleALC + VoodooHDA for audio VoodooPS2Controller (trackpad kext likes to cause KP during boot, sometimes) Any possible fixes for this? Thanks in Advance! Installus.
  13. Hello all! Glad to be here! I've hacked my Dell XPS L502X with an install of OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 (vanilla install). All is good and all, except that there is no WiFi (planning on buying wifi dongle) and that there is no audio. The lack of internet irks me, but I can fix that at a later date. What I can't deal with is the lack of audio. I've tried everything, but there is no luck. AppleALC, Voodoo/AppleHDA, among others. Oh, if I have to, I can reinstall OS X, since nothing important is on the partition. All replies and answers are welcome! Thanks in Advance! Installus (Chaotic) EDIT: Thanks to Hervé, I've been able to get my audio working, and so can you! All you need is... A hackintosh that has the Realtek ALC665 codec (you can't change codecs!) AppleALC.kext (latest version) OR VoodooHDA.kext (again, latest version) AppleHDADisabler.kext A USB flash drive (if you have no WiFi on hackintosh) A secondary computer/way to put files onto the drive (again, no WiFi on hackintosh) 1. Store the files you need on your hackintosh 1a. Download them straight thru your hackintosh 1b. Use a secondary device to download them and store on a flash drive. 2. Open terminal on your computer and type "diskutil mount EFI" in said terminal. Of course, remove the quotation marks. 3. On your EFI partition, navigate to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other 4. Drag n' Drop the kexts you have downloaded on your computer to that folder. 5. Cross your fingers and reboot 5a. (Optional) Suffer a kernel panic during boot because VoodooPS2 doesn't like you. 6. If all goes well, you'll have audio! Guaranteed works for Dell L502X, however YMMV.
  14. macOS-Mojave-XPS13-9350 Hello, this is a simple guide to get OS X 10.14 working on any XPS 13 9350 model This guide uses files from (@syscl) (albeit edited) and full credit to him for the Deploy.sh and DSDT patches. However, his Clover folder is unbootable with Mojave and thus has been redone. However, his Deploy is still retained but edited to remove some DSDT patches that break things on Mojave I did my best to keep the guide simple and for the most part it is, it's inteded for the 6200U non iris but should work with others. (credit @syscl) Issues Wake up via lid is hit or miss (sometimes needs key press) SD Card slot Restarts don't work (endless black screen while turning off but still on) Usage Notes USB Devices eject upon sleep (USB Patches via Deploy were major issue) Changing board number via Clover Config doesn't work always unless serial is changed (No idea..) Audio is controlled via VoodooHDA however prefpane is not nessacary. Never tested USB C anything. Charging should be fine however I'm not sure about others, don't personally use it) What Works Everything else! Setup Notes The new AFPS file system must be used, there is no way to avoid it. Has no noticeable adverse effects except slower boot time It is difficult to repartition AFPS drives and resize them, recommend clean install or you could have one partition smaller than your hard drive that can't be increased unless reformatted Although Volumes will be converted, keep drive as GUID BIOS Settings Set all SATA operation as AHCI Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States Enable UEFI Booting (Disable Legacy if easily confused) Recommended: Clean Install (Preinstall steps) Download latest Mojave version from Mac App store (Register AppleID as developer, enroll your mac, download the preview from the link onsite or google for detailed instructions. Make Bootable media (google how or download app to do it, it's just a terminal command) Download the Latest Clover revision (currently using r4568) and install it to your USB as UEFI and ESP (no need for drivers) Copy The contents of this Github repository into your EFI folder on the USB (Mount the EFI Partition via clover config, efi mounter, etc.) (No Boot Folder in EFI) If you have the same XPS Model as me you can use stock ACPI patched files (6200u, hd 520, 3200x1800,) if not delete contents of both folders (origin, patched) and will fix later via @syscls modified deploy) Installing Mojave (Clean Install) Boot PC off the USB, select your Installer as your Boot drive from clover menu config is currently set to FAKESERIAL and -v. I believe (@syscl's) deploy generates serial # information Once installer is loaded, go to disk utility and format as a GUID Partition Table with whatever partitions you want (Don't format whole drive to afps make sure it's GUID) Run the Mojave installer to the drive wait for it to finish, then turn off) From Clover, select the name of the Mojave Partition (not preboot, recovery, etc.) and not your USB stick either From here the installation will continue. DO NOT CLICK ON MOUSE OR KEYBOARD (crashes installer shortly after at least for me) Post Install (Clean Install) Reboot off your USB once again, load up your Mojave drive. First Boot will take long, if your using my ACPI files (from @sysl's deploy, edited) and have same model you should have everything out of box (except wifi) Regardless, run through the installer and set it all up. (without acpi) At this point screen should be fine, mouse, keyboard, no wifi should be present or bluetooth. No brightness control as well. go to terminal to mount EFI or via clover Config, EFI Mounter, etc, of both USB and the internal disk Copy and REPLACE the EFI folder from the USB into your hard drive. Unplug your USB and reboot and you should be able to boot without the USB now Turn off PC, boot into clover. Don't select a drive and press F4 and Fn+F4 a few times, wait a few seconds, then boot back to the drive Plug back in the USB, mount it's EFI, and run the modified Deploy Script on your Hard Drive EFI partition After deploy is finished, there will be VoodooI2C error as I deleted it from Kexts, for me it breaks Trackpad and Keyboard. For now will be using VoodooPS2. After Modded Deploy You should have no Internet at this point, the following next steps should resolve that. However, your Brightness, lidsleep, USB, bluetooth should be working Using your favourite Kext Installer (Put it on a USB or something to get it on the PC), install (credit @Rehabman's) FAKEPCIID and FAKEPCIID_Broadcomm texts that are included in the ManualKexts Folder Then run "Sudo kextcache -i /" from terminal, reboot, then run it again. By this point your wifi should be fixed, and everything should be done Post Install Notes Your welcome to transfer whatever other kexts you want to S/L/E, personally I leave them in the CLOVER Folder injected. Doing upgrade via mac app store is similar, just partitioning hard drive is harder. Apart from that same process essentially, not recommended Credits Credit Hackintosher.com for basic patches (although @syscl) covered some Credit to @syscl (clearly...) Credit to @Rehabman Credit to @syscl Kexts, and his contributers. ex. Lidwake.kext (although not fully compatible) Support Your welcome to open any issues on this thread, I personally have little DSDT knowledge so I will do my best to help! Thanks for Reading! - This is a clone from my GitHub, the link to the repository is below with all files https://github.com/tlefko/macOS-Mojave-XPS13-9350 - I would really like to hear everyone's experience trying this guide so please let me know in the comments how it worked for you, if you plan to try it, etc.
  15. Fully optimizing DSDT & SSDT for OS X Sierra POST INSTALL on a Dell345MT with a i7 - 920(first gen) I know how this forum feels about 3rd party software, but that was just a crutch, I'm 100% vanilla now which is why I'm now posting for help because I eliminated the possibility having to do with 3rd party. Anyways, with that said I just have a couple things I want to be sure of. I used a n---bistro to get a App Store copy of Sierra, as I didn't know there were other ways of getting it now from a windows10 machine. anyways, I was able to build a vanilla usb. I couldn't figure the EFI out on my vanilla Sierra-usb, but the EFI on the usb-ni---bistro I had would boot my pre-install and post-install. so I was able to install Sierra. After a few days of figuring out how to remake a EFI and config, I broke my EFI. So back to my windows10 SSD and I found BootDiskUtility, and that made a EFI usb with the newest version of clover(r4895). So then swapped SSDs back to my OS X, plugged in the BDU-usb, after trial and error I got back into my Sierra. Now with the newest version of clover and no traces of ni---bistro anymore. Then copied the BDU-usb to my SSD EFI and was able to boot without a usb again!! YAY. Then starting working on fixing my web drivers for my gtx 1050 2gb. Installed the os update so i'm at 10.12.6, pulled my hair out figuring out the web drivers, eventually got them installed and the cuda fixed. Now all 3 of my screens work, yet windows can't sit 'between' screens, I just simply haven't looked for that fix yet as I want the sys itself running like a top first. My screen saver works, I don't get stuck in screensaver, I did once before, I believe lilu.kext and whatevergreen.kext fixed that. Now with all that I felt it was time to give my config.plist a diet cos it was bloated, I generated a config copied the clover settings check for check instead of coping text cos I'm trying to shrink it. Config.plist boots my system with DSDT-1FE7B5D7 So after the above, This is now where I'm stuck a 100% correct DSDT and SSDT, from my understanding with a patched DSDT I wouldn't need any options selected in clover on the ACPI page? So with the patching part that I think I understand how to do it now, but when I extract with F4 every file has RSDT in front of it, I have one that says RSDP.aml and RSDT.aml so would I just erase the RSDT from the beginning of each file then go from their, which would then leave me with a DSDT.aml and 17 SSDTs? I know I have to decompile and patch them, but with my file names[DSDT table extract] not matching tutorials online I'm having a difficult time understanding which files I need. IS the RDST-DSDT.aml my DSDT? it is the biggest file. which ones that have SSDT in the filename is the SSDT(s) I need to patch? also how do I know if everything is patched correctly? like if my CPU is fully working and not just sorta working that way when I start running software like photoshop, unity, 10 chrome tabs, my hackintosh doesn't crash System details i7 920 (first gen) very similar to nehelam GeForce 1050 2Gb (3 monitors connected all work, one acer on HD connection, two HP s2031 on HD, using adapters to change all ports on GPU card to HD for screens) display port, HDMI, and HD 4x 1Gg + 2x 8Gb RAM running at 1066 after injecting smbios with ram info macOS sees all my ram correctly Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500Gb Thanks to anyone that can help me out, I've been working on my system for about two weeks and this is basically the wall I finally can't seem to figure out how to pass I can post another info also if it helps Boot.log DSDTdump.Log

  17. Hi All, I have a dell vostro 1450 laptop, and successfully managed to install iATKOS L2 with everything working except wifi. Can someone point me to how I can get wifi to work ? I have tried a variety of kexts (atheros and broadcom ones) none of them work. Bluetooth is working fine. The wifi chip is a "Dell 1702 or 1702 wifi adapter". I also have a netgear n150 usb adapter even that seems not working. I just need wifi, can anyone help me getting it working?
  18. Hi, I've just succesfully installed Mountain Lion on my Dell Inspiron 15R SE (7520) and encountered some disturbing problems. First of all, USB plug n play just doesn't work, when I boot with stick already plugged it's all fine, in other case OSX just doesn't get it or kernel panic. I've got no sound, sadly it's Conexant CX20672-21Z Audio so I'm not sure if there's kext for this one. The most disturbing fact is system doesn't detect Intel HD 4000 Graphics Card. Oh, almost forget cpu is Intel I5-3210M. Other things, like shutting down are working just fine, altough I haven't managed to test ethernet yet.

    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 all, I'm having a heck of a time getting anything going on this system, which I believe at this point to be a video card issue. I unfortunately do not have another video card available (at least not one that fits in any of these slots) to troubleshoot with. I was able to install using iATKOS Mountain Lion but after the install, the system just restarts immediately when trying to load the OS. I should add that before I tried iATKOS ML, I tried another 'hackintosh' installer to install Snow Leopard, and that one exhibited the same exact restarting behavior, but before even installing. In both cases it restarts a split second after displaying something along the lines of "Starting Darwin". In searching the forums, I did find this thread, and the problem described is identical to mine: http://www.insanelym...onnvidia-gt240/ Unfortunately the described solutions make no sense to me. "Managed to get the graphics working(booted from CD after install) and used IATKOS tools to install drivers." ...iATKOS tools? I couldn't find anything like that. Also what drivers and how..??? My video card is the GeGFORCE GTS240, not the GT240, but the problem described in the OP is exactly what I'm experiencing. I also found a tutorial thread walkthrough of an install on this very same DELL machine that I have, although it doesn't specifically mention the suspect video card -- not that I could walk through it anyway since the steps seem to require an already working OS X machine, which I don't have. The closest I have come to using OS X is setting up my partitions on Disk Utility during the install options when booted from the iAKTOS cd. I've worked my way through installing a couple Linux distros on Apple hardware in the past, but this is my first time trying to put OS X on PC hardware. It is proving very frustrating so far, though I'm admittedly out of my element with this one.
