  1. This thread for installing Catalina on the Dell Latitude E6410 WITH NVIDIA GRAPHICS (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m) will help you install a fresh installation of Catalina on your Dell Latitude E6410, it will help you upgrade from 10.15.2 to 10.15.x (if you originally installed Catalina from this thread) and it will also help you upgrade from Mojave 10.14.6 if you have already installed Mojave by following the instructions here. The instructions in this first post assume that you are installing Catalina in an APFS container. If you are curious about the evolution of this solution and how sleep/wake was solved, review the Mojave installation thread. Important: This Thread is NOT intended to help you install macOS on a Latitude E6410 with Intel HD Graphics (without Nvidia graphics). The DSDT attached to this first post (in E6410-Catalina.zip) is VERY SPECIFIC to the Nvidia graphics implementation and has not been edited for HD Graphics - there are elements required for HD Graphics that are missing from the attached DSDT and there are DSDT mods that have not been tested with HD Graphics. Also, the kexts attached to this first post are specific to a Broadcom Wi-Fi card which must replace the original Intel Wi-Fi card. This first post will be modified to reflect lessons learned and to reflect the most current working state of my Latitude E6410 (with NVidia 3100m discrete graphics) running Catalina. Issues, observations and performance tips are recorded toward the bottom of this first post. My recommended CLOVER configuration is specified toward the bottom of this first post. *** If you want help with your installation, please post your issue along with problem reporting files generated using @black.dragon74's problem reporting tool. Google 'GENERATE PROPER PROBLEM REPORTING FILES black.dragon74' to find it. ***. If Catalina's Read-Only protections block your installation of black.dragon74's gen_debug script, please copy the attached gen_debug script to your Desktop, change script properties with the terminal command 'chmod a+x ~/Desktop/gen_debug' and run the script from your Desktop. My system is as follows: Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (replaced original Wi-Fi card) BIOS (version A17) configured as follows (leave default unless listed here): Boot Sequence: USB, Internal HDD, CD/DVD, Modular Bay HDD; Boot List Option: Legacy; Integrated NIC:Enabled; Parallel Port: Disabled; Serial Port: Disabled; SATA Operation: AHCI; Misc Devices: Enable Modular Bay, Camera, External USB, Microphone, Media Card and 1394; Latitude ON Reader: Disabled; Keyboard Illumination: Auto ALS and Input; Ambient Light Sensor: Enabled; OROM Keyboard Access: Disable; TPM Security: Disable; Computrace:Deactivate; CPU XD Support: Enable; Performance: Enable all options; Power Management: Disable Wake on AC, Disable Wake on LAN/WAN, Express Charge: Standard, Charge Behavior: Enabled; Keypad: Fn Key Only; Mouse/Touchpad: Touchpad/PS-2 Mouse; USB Emulation: Enable Legacy; Fn Key Emulation: Disabled; Fastboot: Thorough; Virtualization: Enable Intel Virtualization, Disable VT for Direct I/O, Disable Trusted Execution; Wireless Switch: Bluetooth and WLAN; Wireless Device Enable: Bluetooth and WLAN; Versions of the software used in this installation are listed below the installation steps. EFI and kexts for Catalina are attached to this first post in E6410-Catalina.zip. CLOVER configuration is specified below the installation steps. Wi-Fi connection to an Access Point is delayed when using AppleALC for sound. Do not use Apple ALC. Use VoodooHDA pkg 2.9.2 v15 for sound. Steps to install Catalina on a Dell Latitude E6410 (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m) If you want to upgrade to 10.15.5, see instructions at this post. If you want to upgrade to 10.15.4, see instructions at this post. Follow instructions below for 10.15.2 and 10.15.3. Make sure that your system matches my system description above (including BIOS version, Wi-Fi card, BIOS settings) If performing an upgrade from Mojave or a previous version of Catalina, backup your Mojave or Catalina partition! (Carbon Copy or similar) Download Catalina Installer Download DosDude Catalina Patcher Use DosDude Patcher to create Catalina USB Installer Delete LegacyUSBInjector.kext (we're using @RehabMan's USBInjectAll.kext with custom SSDT) and delete SIPManager.kext (CLOVER is managing SIP) from Catalina USB Installer's /Library/Extensions folder Copy all but the FakeSMC sensor kexts in E6410-Catalina.zip (attached) LE folder to the Catalina USB Installer /Library/Extensions (copy all kexts (including FakeSMC.kext) but not the FakeSMC sensor kexts) Install CLOVER Bootloader (Legacy) on USB Installer using the EFI in the E6410-Catalina.zip (attached). Use the CLOVER configuration specified below. Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Reset your Latitude E6410 NVRAM by doing the following (this may be important if you're making changes to your existing EFI and won't hurt anything if you're not making any changes) turn-off your laptop remove A/C power and main battery press and hold the power button for 30 seconds restore A/C power and battery Boot your Latitude E6410 from the Catalina USB Installer that you created in steps 5-8. Select "Reinstall macOS" (note that I have existing installations of Mojave and High Sierra on my Latitude E6410, so it's possible that this menu item changes to "Install macOS" if you don't have any previous macOS installations). Select your Catalina destination partition (which will be your Mojave or previous Catalina partition if you are upgrading) After the Catalina Installer reboots the first time, boot from the "macOS Installer" partition on the disk that you selected as your Catalina destination (not the macOS installer on the USB) After the Catalina Installer reboots the second time, boot the Catalina macOS Installer on the USB Select the Post Install Patcher utility Select only the following Post Install Patches (no other patches / options) Install Patch Updater Legacy Video After the Post Install Patcher reboots, boot from the newly installed (or upgraded) Catalina partition and complete the macOS configuration Remove these kexts (if they exist) from /Library/Extensions: LegacyUSBInjector.kext, LegacyUSBVideoSupport.kext and SIPManager.kext If you are performing a fresh installation of Catalina: Install CLOVER (LEGACY - NOT UEFI) on your boot disk and configure EFI using files in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip. Use the CLOVER configuration below. Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Install all kexts in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip LE folder to your /Library/Extensions folder. Copy HWMonitor from the application folder in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip to your Applications folder. Install VoodooHDA (I installed using the Classic method) Skip to Step 21 If you are upgrading from a previous version of Catalina using the instructions from this thread or from Mojave that you installed using the instructions here: Replace 3rd-party kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other with those in the attached EFI folder. Replace EFI/Clover config.plist with the attached config.plist (Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values) Replace EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched with the files in the attached EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched Replace 3rd-party kexts in /Library/Extensions with those in the attached LE folder Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions Re-install VoodooHDA if necessary (I installed using the Classic method for Catalina) Ensure PROPER kext installation: If you're manually installing kexts in /Library/Extensions, make sure that you execute the following (in terminal) cd /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel *.kext sudo chmod -R 755 *.kext sudo kextcache -i / After you execute 'sudo kextcache -i /' you should observe that ALL kexts are allowed. If not, your kext directory attributes are probably incorrect. Repeat kext installation and try again. Reboot from your new/upgraded Catalina partition Welcome to macOS Catalina! Change the keyboard type to ISO (System Preferences > Keyboard > Change Keyboard Type) Swap the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) Set hibernatemode: In terminal, execute sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage sudo touch /var/vm/sleepimage sudo chflags schg /var/vm/sleepimage Version Info at the time of this writing: Catalina Installer 10.15.5.02 CLOVER r5118 DosDude Catalina Patcher: v1.4.4 Lilu.kext 1.4.5 AirportBrcmFixup.kext 2.0.6 BrcmFirmwareData.kext 2.5.3 BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext 2.5.3 BrcmPatchRAM3.kext 2.5.3 IntelMausi.kext 1.0.3 (Not IntelMausiEthernet.kext) EFICheckDisabler.kext 0.5 VoodooHDA.kext 2.9.2 v15 (NOT AppleALC) What is not working (that was working in Mojave) SD Card Slot (had to remove VoodooSDHC.kext which caused system freeze on wake) Known Issues and Their Solutions (Solved - no further work required) Clover r5118 requires the config.plist key <key>NoDefaultProperties</key><false> to permit macOS to boot with Clover's "Inject Nvidia" = True. See details here. config.plist in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip archive includes this change. (Solved - no further work required) EFICheck is loaded. Solution is to install EFICheckDisabler.kext which you can get here. EFICheck.kext is included in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip archive. (Solved - no further work required) Some users experience display issues. The solution is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT. Use the attached DSDT. Removal of PNLF will disable sleep on lid closure. Device (PNLF) can be added without modifying the DSDT by enabling the Clover PNLF ACPI patch. The attached Clover config.plist enables the PNLF DSDT patch. Disable the Clover PNLF patch if you experience display issues. (Solved - no further work required) USB sleep/wake power IORegistry keys are not injected (not included in Mojave's or Catalina's IOUSBHostFamily.kext). Solution is to added SSDT-USBX.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. The attached SSDT-USBX.aml includes USB sleep/wake properties for MacBookPro6,2 from High Sierra 10.13.6 IOUSBHostFamily.kext. (No solution yet) Brightness slider does not work in System Preferences > Displays. Brightness is easily controlled with Dell brightness keys. There is some work on this later in this thread, but I will not be solving this as I'm content with the Dell brightness keys (and Ambient Light Sensor works to auto-adjust brightness). (No intention to solve) Display Settings in System Preferences are "garbled" when bright slider is visible. This is a known issue with the legacy graphics patch and does not affect laptop operation. I continue to refine the DSDT and CLOVER config.plist to optimize my Latitude E6410 for multi-booting between various macOS versions (High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina at the time of this writing). If you upgrade your Latitude E6410 EFI using my attached EFI, you may find that your Latitude E6410 is stuck in a boot-loop that ends in a white screen and reboots. Clear your system by doing the following: turn off your laptop, remove A/C power, remove the main battery, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, restore A/C power and battery, boot normally. I have only found this to be necessary (very rarely) after making an EFI change, but you may find it helpful if making kext changes in /Library/Extensions as well. (Solved - no further work required) Brcm firmware does not update when using BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext in /Library/Extensions. Solution is to install BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext in E/C/k/O with Clover "Inject Kexts" = YES. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop does not sleep when closing lid. Solution appears to be a combination of adding Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) and adding Device (PNLF) in the DSDT. I am using the same EFI for High Sierra 10.13.6, Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina 10.15.3 and it works in all three macOSes. (No solution yet) No SD Card Slot (had to remove VoodooSDHC.kext) - I read somewhere that there is a solution that does not require any kexts (just a DSDT edit). Haven't yet implemented this fix. (Not a problem that needs to be solved - leaving for historical purposes. I am running Catalina without this.) - IOHWControl does not load under GFX0 (as observed in IORegistryExplorer). Solution (if it needs to be solved) is to install AppleHWSensor.kext from a DosDude-patched Mojave /S/L/E in Catalina's /L/E. Copy and install your own or use the kext attached to this post. (Solved - no further work required) Wi-Fi connection is delayed until a minute or so after boot - Use VoodooHDA and NOT AppleALC (Solved - no further work required) External USB ports do not work after waking from sleep (S3) - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Boot and shut-down time of Catalina is slower than Mojave - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Wi-Fi is not immediately available at OS startup - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop freezes on wake - Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions Tips for Improved Performance (on this and other older systems) System Preferences > Spotlight > Search Results: Uncheck all options System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy: Add all Volumes System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce motion" System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce transparency" Other tips If your fan is always running and temps are good, try pressing Fn + z (I haven't noticed this issue for a while since I completed DSDT edits for Mojave, but keeping this here for historical purposes) CLOVER Installation: Use these configuration options (Install Clover LEGACY - NOT UEFI) Install Clover in the ESP Boot Sectors Install boot0af in MBR Clover for BIOS (LEGACY - NOT UEFI) booting Clover EFI 64-bits SATA BIOS Drivers, 64-bit Recommended drivers FSInject File System drivers ApfsDriverLoader Install RC scripts on target volume Themes Choose your desired theme Install Clover Preference Pane After clicking "Continue", if prompted with "This Clover package is incompatible with this version of macOS," install anyway After CLOVER installation is complete Copy the following from the attached E6410-Catalina.zip ACPI patched contents config.plist (change XX-MASKED-XX values to your own) kexts/Other (remove all other kext folders) Remove christmas and new year folders from themes (if present) Screenshots Credits Thanks to those who contributed to my Mojave solution and to the DosDude team (for the incredible macOS patchers), I think this Catalina installation was the easiest macOS installation that I have experienced (so far). Many thanks to @Slice and his team for the incredible work on CLOVER and for continuing to support old legacy systems like this. Also, thanks to @Mieze and @headkaze and others I'm sure for maintaining the Brcm kexts. And finally, I still prefer to manually apply patches to the DSDTs in my systems. CLOVER offers extensive patching functionality, but I'm old-school and like to have an error-free, fully-patched DSDT with a simple CLOVER config.plist. I think that this manual DSDT patching approach (which required an extensive review and debugging of the original unpatched DSDT in this thread) is the reason that this Latitude E6410 is such a perfect MacBookPro6,2. Thank you @RehabMan for being a great teacher and for always insisting on problem reporting files . AppleHWSensor.kext.zip gen_debug E6410 Catalina-5v2.zip
  2. *** I have started another thread for installing Catalina on the Dell Latitude E6410. If you were thinking of installing Mojave, but would prefer to skip right to Catalina, click here. *** *** I am no longer maintaining the installation files in this first post. Refer to my Catalina thread for the latest guidelines / files for installing macOS on this Latitude E6410 with Nvidia graphics *** I was inspired by @duduclx post here for installing El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6410, so I decided to install Mojave 10.14.5 and subsequently 10.14.6. Everything works perfectly (including sleep). I'm starting this thread hoping to help others install Mojave on their E6410s. A brief installation guide is provided later in this first post. The interested reader is encouraged to read the other posts in this thread to see how this solution evolved and to learn additional tips/details not provided in this first post (including dual-booting with macOS and Windows). My system is as follows: Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) MacOS: Mojave 10.14.6 (APFS) (Patched with DosDude Mojave Patcher 1.3.3) MacModel: MacBookPro 6,2 (LPCB._DSM.Name "pci8086,3b09") Kexts: Lilu 1.3.6, VoodooHDA 2.9.2, AirportBrcmFixup 2.0.0, IntelMausiEthernet 2.4.1d1, ACPIBatteryManager 1.90.1, BrcmPatchRam2.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, VoodooPS2Controller (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad" version - release 6 developed by @Dr. Hurt and compiled by @bronxteck), not the original version), USBInjectAll (with custom SSDT-UIAC), VoodooSDHC.kext (configured as shown here). Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (with AirportBrcmFixup.kext) CLOVER (Legacy): R4961 Configuration items that may be different from what you have seen in other E6410 configurations Addition of _OFF and _ON methods to _PTS and _WAK methods respectively (to control discrete graphics in order to enable sleep/wake) LPCB._DSM patched with device-id "3b09" AND "name", "pci8086,3b09" for native Nehalem power management with MacBookPro 6,2 ECDV renamed to EC so that AppleBusPowerController loads AGP.VID._DSM patched with device-id "0a29" so that AppleGraphicsPowerManagement loads No CLOVER Generate P or Generate C States (with the correct LPCB._DSM and MacBookPro 6,2, these CLOVER options are unnecessary for this architecture and only limit max multiplier and reduce number of P states) DSDT patched to include HDAU device (device-id 0x0be3) What is NOT working: Display brightness can be controlled with keyboard keys, but cannot be controlled with slider in Display settings. Graphics Power Management - AGPM loads (because 10de,0a29 device is injected), but there's no evidence that 3100m frequency and voltage is changing. What is NOT tested: Smartcard Reader eSata (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Firewire Port (it does appear in the Network settings, just haven't tried it) Microphone Jack PC Card Slot (I have this disabled in my BIOS) What IS working: SLEEP IS WORKING! Everything else not mentioned above. Speedstep/CPUPowerManagement is perfect, system temps are low, CPU multiplier operates as expected, battery life is long Shutdown is fast Display/graphics acceleration is perfect (thanks to DosDude's Mojave patcher) Brightness (adjusted with brightness keys on keyboard) works perfectly Battery Manager works (battery status is displayed in menu bar) simply by installing ACPIBatterManager.kext. Wi-Fi (after changing to Broadcom BCM94352HMB and installing AirportBrcmFixup.kext) Audio (volume adjustable, volume indicator appears in menu bar). Switched to VoodooHDA from AppleALC after AppleALC caused slow boot due to "IOHDACodecFunction timeout." Ethernet port (with IntelMausiEthernet.kext) Broadcom BCM20702A0 Bluetooth (with BrcmPatchRam2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext) Optical Drive External VGA (with corrected NVCAP. Need NVCAP 04000000 00000100 0E000000 00000007 00000000 (credit: here) for working external VGA display. Headphone jack Display Port (tested using DP > HDMI adapter) Camera SD Card Reader Known issues and their solutions (These issues have all been resolved, with the solutions incorporated into the attached config files. The issues are listed here for historical purposes and no further work is needed unless stated otherwise). (Solution to this issue is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT): Some users experience display issues. Solution is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT. The attached DSDT currently still includes Device (PNLF), so you will need to edit the DSDT to remove PNLF. USB sleep/wake power IORegistry keys are no longer provided in IOUSBHostFamily.kext after High Sierra 10.13.6. Solution is to added SSDT-USBX.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. The attached SSDT-USBX.aml includes USB sleep/wake properties for MacBookPro6,2 from High Sierra 10.13.6 IOUSBHostFamily.kext. Laptop does not sleep on lid close. Solution is to add Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) in the DSDT. This is solved in the attached DSDT. Leaving this for historical purposes, but the CLOVER USBFix is no longer necessary after finding that I had incorrectly applied the DSDT _DSM patch for Device (EHC1). The CLOVER USBFix is not needed after fixing the DSDT.. AAPL,clock-id and device_type do not appear in IORegistry for EHC1. Solution is to use CLOVER on-the-fly patching/fixing/renaming for EHC1 and EHC2. Thank you, @feartech, for this tip. ALPS trackpad performance is not good with the "standard" VoodooPS2Controller.kext that I initially used. Switching to the "Refined ALPS TouchPad driver" is a big improvement. I've implemented and tested this on my system. The ALPS version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext mixes up a few keys. Need to switch the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) and change keyboard type to ISO European. This configuration (captured in the attached config files) uses an injected device-id (10de,0a29) for NVidia 3100m to get AGPM to load. While I haven't observed any performance differences, a better approach may be to inject AGPM properties for device 10de,0a6c (the actual device-id for the 3100m). This AGPM method is discussed later in this thread. I have briefly tested this "FakeSMC.kext method" for injecting AGPM attributes without any noticeable changes in laptop/graphics behavior. IOHWControl is not loaded under AGPM (Should be AGP > VID > NVDA,Display-A@0 > NVDATesla > AGPM > gpu-control > IOHWControl as viewed in IORegistryExplorer). It is loaded on a real MacBookPro6,2 running Mojave and is loaded on this Dell Latitude E6410 running High Sierra. If I "Inject NVidia" via CLOVER, IOHWControl loads properly. The Dell Latitude DSDT (BIOS A17) has a bug in Method (GNOT). In the method, the expression If (LOr (LGreater (OSYS, 0x07D0), LLess (OSYS, 0x07D6))) always evaluates to TRUE, so the patched DSDT has no dependency on the value of OSYS. I suspect that LOr should be replaced with LAnd, so that this expression is TRUE for variants of Windows 2001 and False for any other OS. While this may have no affect on MacOS, it makes one wonder how such an obvious bug made it through Dell QA and is still present in BIOS A17. Also makes one wonder whether the sleep problem (which no one has solved) was fixed in Windows to address another DSDT bug. The assigned value of ACOS and OSYS in the DSDT are conditional on the operating system. There is no condition for "Darwin." The solution is to add a condition for "Darwin" (making it equivalent to one of the defined operating systems (e.g. Linux, Win7, etc). The attached config hard-codes ACOS and OSYS values equivalent to those for Linux. Another way to handle this (different from the method employed in the attached config files) might be to override _OSI with XOSI (defined in a custom SSDT). The portType of the Internal Bluetooth device is portType=0 which, according to Rehabman's comments in SSDT-UIAC-All.dsl, is an external USB 2 port. This should be an internal USB port (portType=2). I learned through trial and error that the HUB1 and HUB2 definitions in Rehabman's SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl apply to the ports on the EHCx USB hubs. The solution is to include the HUB1 definition in SSDT-UIAC.dsl and change portType to 2 for HP15. This change doesn't appear to affect/fix sleep, but it may prevent instant wake if we get sleep working. There are minor differences between a real MacBookPro6,2 IORegistry dump and this HackBookPro6,2 IORegistry dump that can be resolved with simple DSDT edits. I am now running with these changes, but haven't found these changes to make any difference in operational behavior. Rename Device (AC) -> Device (ADP1) Remove UID from Device (HPET) Add compatible ID "PNP0C01" to Device (HPET) Change ADP1:_STA from 0x0F to 0xFFFFFFFF Enable Ambient Light Sensor and renamed to Device (ALS0) from Device (ALS) Add compatible ID "smc-als" to ALS0 Rename LID -> LID0 Change "name" definitions to Buffers in _DSM methods Rename Device (PBTN) to PWRB Rename Device (SBTN) to SLPB Sleep / Wake does not work with the basic DSDT edits. I have discovered that Sleep / Wake can be made to work by adding discrete graphics _OFF and _ON methods to _PTS and _WAK methods respectively (borrowed the concept and code from a working E6430 DSDT: Credit here: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/9248-working-sleep-on-intel-hd-and-nvidia-nvs-on-dell-latitude-e6430-optimus-enabled-or-disabled/page/6/. The Clover boot arg should be changed to "darkwake=0" for reasons explained by @holyfield in this thread. Leaving this for historical purposes: LCD screen is blank when waking laptop by opening lid (screen is not blank when waking with power button). Solution is to add darkwake=8 to CLOVER boot args. Thank you @Hervé for this tip. Brief Installation Guide: Configure BIOS (version A17) as follows (leave default unless listed here): Boot Sequence: USB, Internal HDD, CD/DVD, Modular Bay HDD; Boot List Option: Legacy; Integrated NIC: Enabled; Parallel Port: Disabled; Serial Port: Disabled; SATA Operation: AHCI; Misc Devices: Enable Modular Bay, Camera, External USB, Microphone, Media Card and 1394; Latitude ON Reader: Disabled; Keyboard Illumination: Auto ALS and Input; Ambient Light Sensor: Enabled; OROM Keyboard Access: Disable; TPM Security: Disable; Computrace: Deactivate; CPU XD Support: Enable; Performance: Enable all options; Power Management: Disable Wake on AC, Disable Wake on LAN/WAN, Express Charge: Standard, Charge Behavior: Enabled; Keypad: Fn Key Only; Mouse/Touchpad: Touchpad/PS-2 Mouse; USB Emulation: Enable Legacy; Fn Key Emulation: Disabled; Fastboot: Thorough; Virtualization: Enable Intel Virtualization, Disable VT for Direct I/O, Disable Trusted Execution; Wireless Switch: Bluetooth and WLAN; Wireless Device Enable: Bluetooth and WLAN; Create your MacOS installer USB (Use DosDude's Mojave Patcher for Mojave) (start with High Sierra and not Mojave if you're new to hackintosh). Install CLOVER (Legacy) on installer USB using attached EFI as your guide for patched ACPI, kexts and config.plist Install MacOS to your SSD. When you run DosDude's Mojave Patcher, DO NOT install LegacyUSBInjector.kext - you're going to use Rehabman's USBInjectAll.kext. Also, do not install the DosDude SIP kext (you're using CLOVER to manage SIP). Install the following kexts in /Library/Extensions: ACPIBatteryManager.kext, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakeSMC.kext, FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext, FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, Lilu.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad driver," not the original), VoodooSDHC.kext (configured as shown here).

On systems with multiple displays, a second (or third display) may not be active after applying the Mojave update. The solution to this is to run "sudo kextcache -i /" (in a terminal window) and reboot. This will usually fix the issue. If the issue is not fixed, run DosDude's Post Install Utility, apply the Legacy Graphics Patch, reboot and then run "sudo kextcache -i /" if necessary.

I hope he's doing well, wherever he is. Hopefully he has long since forgotten what a PIA I was (and still am) as I was (and still am) learning hackOS. E6410-Mojave-v4.zip

A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial. And Hervé from insanelymac for using is modified DSDT.aml for E6320 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Latitude E6320 – This is necessary to install macOS Sierra for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.12 to – For me, I used a 500GB HDD to install 10.12 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor. E6320_V2.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5-2520M laptop computer with the following specs. 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 Dell wireless 375 Bluetooth 3.0 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. Download OS X Sierra Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. Once macOS Sierra is downloaded, close the install pop-up that appears using Command (⌘)+Q. The application INSTALL macOS Sierra will appear in /Applications Done! 5. Prepare bootable USB Installer Note on flash drives: You will need a USB flash drive to make this work. Your USB should be at least 8GB and a USB 3.0 drive is preferred. Kingston sells an 8GB USB 3.0 drive for less than 10 euro. Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Make sure that the disk you choose to use doesn't contain anything that you want to keep, because the following tutorial will purge everything on the drive. Open Finder - Applications and right-click on Install macOS Sierra and select Show Package Contents. Open Contents - Resources. Open a Terminal window thru Applications - Utilities - Terminal. In the Terminal window type sudo followed by a space. Drag the createinstallmedia file from the finder window opened in Step 4 to the Terminal Window. Type --volume followed by a space. Connect your USB drive and drag the USB drive into the Terminal Window. Type --applicationpath in the Terminal followed by a space. Open Finder - Applications and drag the Install macOS Sierra into the Terminal Window. Press Return on the keyboard to submit the full command. Type a 'Y' to continue when prompted to do so, and press Return on your keyboard The install process will begin by erasing the contents of your USB disk and copying the installer files to the USB disk. The entire process is quite lengthy; it can takes around 15-30 minutes, so you will need to show some patience 6. Installing Clover to the USB Disk Unpack the E6320.zip to your desktop or specified map you preferred. Open the map E6320 - Clover_v2.3k_r3726. DubbleClick on the Clover_v2.3k_r3726.pkg package file.

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

Choose at Select the Keyboard Type for ANSI (United States and others) Press Done your Keyboard is setup 12. Adjust some settings in macOS 10.12 Once in 10.12 go to Finder – Preferences – General and choose in show these items on the desktop for Hard Disk External Disk Go to tab Sidebar and choose your desired Favorites, Shared and Devices. Close the Finder Preferences. 13. Change Security & Privacy for 3rd party software Start Terminal choose GO - Utilities - Terminal. In Terminal type sudo spctl --assess --master-disable followed by password to activate the option in Security & Policy "Allow apps downloaded from" Anywhere. Go to System Preferences – Security& Privacy and look of the option "Anywhere" is active if not activate the option. Close system preferences. 14. Revert HDD for proper boot. Launch Terminal and execute the following command: sudo diskutil corestorage revert / When prompt type your password. Exit Terminal and reboot again with your USB to macOS. 15. Installing Clover to the HD The steps 15 and 16 are the same as steps 6 and 7 but now we will install clover to the HDD of the E6320. Unpack the E6320.zip to your desktop or specified map you preferred. Open the map E6320 - Clover_v2.3k_r3726. DubbleClick on the Clover_v2.3k_r3726.pkg package file.

Paste the EFI folder in the EFI partition and replace everything. Done your E6320 is ready to boot macOS Sierra. 17. Install Wlan driver for the TL-WN725N The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK. The software is straight forward and installs without problems. Go to your E6320 folder which you have extracted to your HDD of your macOS Sierra. Open the map "beta driver for mac os X 10.11" . Run Installer_RTL.pkg Click Continue - Continue - Continue - Agree - Install Enter your Password and click Install Software - Continue Installation Click Restart to Reboot your Laptop. The first time you will get a kernel panic don't worry reboot again and the laptop will start macOS Sierra. Done! 18. What's working? Just about everything. 19. Finished!

    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
  7. Hello, first post here, bare with me please. I just finished my installation of iAtkos S3 V2, and upon booting the "Macintosh HD" partition the Apple logo and spinning wheel appears as normal, then just 3 seconds later... Kernel panic! Anything I can do to fix this? My PC: Make: Dell Model: Latitude D620 CPU: Intel Core Duo T2300 (@ 1.66 GHz) RAM: 1 GB DDR2-5300 (upgrading to 2 GB in a few days when my 1 GB ram stick arrives in the mail) Current OS: Windows Vista Home Premium If I'm missing any information, let me know. Also, I do have quite a bit of experience with the whole Hackintosh thing, I've installed just about every version of OS X on about 5 different PC's. But it's been about 2 years since I've last had anything to do with the whole Hackintosh thing, so I'm a bit rusty.
  8. hello, i am trying to install the s3 v2 in my dell latitude d520, which has the iatkos v7 running(im also happy bout that ). I tryied sometimes install s3 v2, and it could just say installation was successful and when i rebooted, it just appeard the screen we don't want after a installation: boot0: done, boot0: error, or other things like this. So i thought, i already seen the files of the installation disk, which have a bunch of kernels,like mach_qoopz, or mach_pcj, so, if the installation disk booted with one of these kernels, it must be one that works on my pc! im a half newbie, so don't say im dumb please, but if i copied (cp) after the installation, in the terminal of the osx install disk, i could make it run! or no. so, anyone help me? thanks

  10. Hello All, I have a dell e6420 laptop which i have setup for triple boot. i just realized that i followed an old guide and thus it might be why I'm having freezes on minimize windows. specifically browser windows. this is what i did: install osx el capitan created 2 partitions fat installed windows installed ubuntu installed gptsync on ubuntu to keep all partitions sync'ed. went back to windows and made OSX partition active so that clover will boot. now everything works fine, but i have a very strange issue. when i hit minimize, the window freezes half way down and then it goes to the dock. sometimes it just hangs and i have to reboot. this issue is only on OSX. windows and linux don't exhibit this issue. i thought my issue was related to installing gptsync under linux, so i have removed it after reading other triple boot guides but the issue remains. it seems keeping the partitions in sync is no longer needed. Specs: Dell E6420 8GB RAM 525 GB Crucial SSD intel i7 2.8Ghz 1600x900 Display is there a log that i can attach to try and see where this issue is coming from ? thanks here is a picture:
  11. I installed Mavericks a few weeks ago on my Dell Latitude D830 using the boot pack and postinstall from osxlatitude.com. All hardware works great, the machine is very stable. Only one issue: sometimes when I boot/reboot the laptop, after the Apple logo/boot splash screen I get no image on-screen. If I reboot again, this time with the -f ignore caches flag, I am able to get into OS X with video fine. Anyone know what this could be? Been a while since I've worked on a hackintosh so a little rusty.
