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.

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.

  3. Hello community, I am a 20 year old, learning many languages in Uni, HTML, CSS, SQL, Java, Latex and some PHP. I must become a bit better in all of them, since I wish to pursue my dream of earning a living doing what I most like. Out of all of them, my favourite is Java, you can do so much with it, and it is also a good gateway drug to C and C++ or so I have heard I would love some Java coders to join in this and let's try to make a dedicated download center for a lot of kexts and utilities for Hackintosh. If you don't wanna join in, any suggestion to make something else, or any advice or piece of code or 2 cents you have is welcome! God Bless https://bitbucket.org/kosakgroove/ What I really love in Java is that it is practically platform independent, this is specially useful for this day and age we live in...

    Come configurare asus ac51usb wifi

    Ciao ho acquistato questo adattatore wifi in quanto sembrava essere compatibile fino a sierra e mi serve per un altro hackintosh in casa non raggiungibile da ethernet e per il prezzo(circa 20€) era meglio degli edimax da 300mbps solo che sto riscontrando dei problemi nel farlo funzionare, ho installato il kext per l'mtk 7610u da qui e installato con kext wizard(manualmente non dava risultati) per poi installare il software di asus solo che quest ultimo non riesco a farlo funzionare dato che si avvia e compare per poco l'iconcina in alto a destra per poi scomparire e non si apre mai l'utility come su windows, qualcuno ha questa o usb simili e sa come sistemare questo problema? osx mi vede l'esistenza di un wifi ma non mi sembra mi dia modo di connettermici in alcun modo. Grazie
  5. I tried to get to the installer on my brother's pc with specs as follow 4790k, maximus VII gene, 16gb of ddr3 ram(4*4) , 2 random hdds and a 250gb 850 evo but after i boot into clover and select the usb it does the wall of text, gets into the installer, let me(sometimes) select the language and if try to go into disk utility or just to install after a few seconds or instantly it reboots, any idea about how to fix that?

    usb 3.0s?

    HI, i've installed high sierra a while ago and never really used it that much but i got bored of w10 so i've decided to use it as my daily driver for a while and i noticed that usb 3.0 ports don't work with usb 3 devices and only with usb 2.0 devices(capped at the 480mb/s limit of usb 2.0), is there a way to get past that? i couldn't find it in this forum, i don't need the speed that much for right now(even tho i might since i shoot in raw and usb 2.0 is slow for file transfer of big photos or videos i take on holidays or on days off) but i'd like to at least be able to use the usb 3.0s with my usb 3 devices and hub. Hope that i write this post correctly, english is not my main language. ps i don't need because i'm on lan but does it exist a driver/kext for intel wifi/bluetooth combo integrated in my z87 mpower(centrino 2200) ? bluetooth works already.
  7. Hi, I am gonna to buy wifi card, since my Dell M660 does not have supported card. If there is list of supported cards please give link to that. Thanks

    ***************UPDATE 7/18/2015**************** WORKING -wireless with card found here (https://partstore.com/Part/Lenovo/Lenovo/20200480/Refurbished.aspx) And kexts in new kext pack from rehabman. Thanks to chuppiejones! -Battery stat (thanks to srinn for the DSDT edit!!!) -bluetooth OOB (no turn off option, might need work) -brightness and graphic acceleration -sound (with voodookext from rehabman) -touch/pen (with stock wacom driver from website) -Micro SD OOB -All USB ports OOB NOT WORKING -volume rocker (i got it to work with one click then after it doesnt work) -sleep (automatically wakes up) -SD fullsize (not recognized) The SD card not working seems like good news and bad news to me, the bad news, it doesnt work, the good news this might be the reason sleep isnt working either. So hopefully we can kill two birds with one stone. For this install I will be using two USB drives, one as an installer the second to install to. Alternatively you could create two partitions on the installer USB if its big enough (16gb or larger) and install to the second partition this however will slow down the install. Later when I have the install stable enough I will extend this guide to make it an internal multi boot guide. Also please note that the USB drive you use seems to be quite important. A fast USB3.0 drive is necessary for the computer to recognize it at boot otherwise it will always boot into windows. I had trouble with this and could only find a couple drives (very new) that would work, all my older drives werent recognized fast enough to load the clover boot menu. _____Creating USB INSTALLER_____ -Download yosemite from the mac app store - put a thumb drive into your mac and open disk utility. -Partition the drive as GUID with MAC os extended journaled format -name the drive Yosemite -open terminal and copy and paste this command sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume/Volumes/Yosemite --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --no interaction Installing clover Now open Clover_v2.3k_r3185 (the version im currently using and will include in the zip file), click Continue > Continue > Change Install Location Select the “Installer” partition you made. Click Customize Select Install for UEFI booting only select one theme ( I prefer bootcamp) Under Drivers64UEFI select -EmuVariableUefi-64 -OsxAptioFixDrv-64 -PartitionDxe-64 Then click install. Customizing clover with our files When its finished you will notice a new mounted partition/drive on your computer called EFI, this is the hidden boot partition of your installer drive. Navigate to EFI > EFI > CLOVER > kexts Paste the fakesmc kext included in the zip file into the "10.10" folder and the "other" folder. Navigate to the EFI > CLOVER > ACPI > Patched and paste all the .aml files from the DSDT folder in the included zip. Navigate to EFI > CLOVER and overwrite the current config.plist with the config.plist included in the zip file. Initial Install Once finished eject your newly made installer usb drive and plug it into the top usb port on your cintiq (this port seems to work best for me, but maybe im just crazy) Boot the device holding volume up to enter BIOS. In bios, go to the "boot" tab and disable all boot options but leave the first one as usb key. Have fast boot disabled. In "UEFI Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities" make sure everything is disabled as well as in "Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities. Im not sure this is all necessary but this is whats working for me. Save changes and exit. Essentially you should disable any internal drive from booting so it will look for your USB key. However I had issues and it kept booting windows anyway, mostly due to what I assume was a slow USB 2.0 drive. After switching to only USB3.0 drives and putting them in the top port, i didnt have the issue. Now when you boot the device it should load into the clover boot screen. Just select the installer and hit enter. This should boot into the OS X Yosemite installer without any issues. From here select the drive you want to install to. If you have to go into the disk utility and partition a drive. First boot up! Woohoo! When the install is finished the computer will restart. Boot back into clover this time selecting the new install. Download the most recent wacom cintiq driver for OSX and put it on your usb drive, install it and you should be good to go. I will update this with the different files as I make changes and get other things working. Keep in mind not all of this might be necessary and some of the options might not be the best in the config file. If anyone has any input feel free to let me know and I will update. Install pack version 3 7-18-2015 Added updated DSDT from srinn for working battery, removed acpiplatform kext Added kext files for working wifi with aftermarket card thanks to chuppiejones Companion2packV3.zip Install pack version 2 3-3-2015 ( OUTDATED ) Added sound and battery kexts. While i understand DSDT editing is the preferred method for battery to work, half way thru the process I found myself considering a gunshot to the face instead. I have some linux experience but it was just god damn frustrating and time consuming, especially knowing these kexts get the job done. If anyone wants to go thru with the DSDT edit for the battery I would gladly use/host it here with credit. Use kext wizard to install the kexts in the "kexts to install" folder, then repair permissions and rebuild caches. Companion2packV2.zip Install pack version 1 2-26-2015 ( OUTDATED ) Hey guys just wanted to set up a place holder for when I get the guide finished, but here is a video of me successfully running yosemite with full pen (prefpane, hotkey) and touch support!! really excited, finally seeing all the work i did for months on the previous model finally come to fruition is amazing!!

  12. I am doing it under Sierra via VM and system refuses to do this (install to apps), also there is no ption to "buy" El Capitan from store. If someone give me advice how to make it run I will be very glad.
  13. hi guys, I have successfully installed os X 10.10.5 on my laptop ThinkPad E431 with Clover boot. It worked fine before, today I tried to hide unnecessary boot volumes (like, winApp, winData etc.) in Clover/config.plst. However, after I had done that, the useless boot options were gone indeed, and the os X can't be boot too. At first it stuck at "IOAPIC" (as show on image), then after a while, it goes to "System uptime in nanoseconds ..." and died. Can anyone give some suggestions please? thank you so much for help.

    Problem with App Store

    When I start my App Store nothing happens.. Its just gray. Tried to google my problem and looked att som YT videos but I cant find any answer. I run Sierra High 10.13.1 Tried to reboot computer but nothing new. Just wanted to say that to spare some time for some forum users.. Regards Marcus
  15. Hi. First of all I've read topic where Frank Nitty tried to install Mac OS from USB flash drive in this thread Thread. I have another situation. So, first thing that happened is I had the same error message when updated my hackintosh from 10.12 to 10.13 (from AppStore as always). But I've solved it by changing ProductName from 14,1 to 18,1 in SMBIOS section of config.plist Now I am trying to update from 10.13 to 10.13.1 and 18,1 does not help now. I get error "The path /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg appears to be missing or damaged" every time after files copying, and rebooting by installer. I've tried next ideas already: run the terminal command sudo NVRAM -c to reset my NVRAM before installing/upgrading High Sierra. Try Clover r4220+ (I have 4268) and remove FirmwareFeatures/FirmwareFeaturesMask/PlatformFeature and BIOS version/release date/Board-ID data from config.plist/SMBIOS to allow Clover to inject up to date values. Update to @Slice's latest FakeSMC v3.50. And also unplugged another drives with EFI from motherboard So, I cannot understand what I can do now, I think I've tried everything I could find on forums. Please help me to solve this. Thank you!
  16. I've installed Mac Os X 10.9.1 Mavericks on my Intel Haswell NUC Core i5 (D54250WYK), which has mini Display port output. I connected Nuc with 27-inch Korean monitor (Crossover 2763amg) with mini Display port - Display port cable to get 2560x1440 resolution. Installation was working fine without any issue, then i restarted my machine to load Mavericks and got login screen. After i type my user account password, os x shutd down immediately in 1-2 seconds. If i boot with "-v -x" flags (verbose, save mode), then everything goes fine, but there is poor graphics acceleration. I've also noticed if i connect my Nuc to old 17-inch LG monitor through HDMI cable (mini HDMI - HDMI), then there is no a such issue, but resolution is 1080p. Another strange thing, if i change Org.chameleon.Boot.plist file located in /Extra folder of my SSD for lower resolution (from 2560x1440 -> 2048x1152) then i have os x shuts down after login screen not every time - sometimes it occured, sometimes not. The same behaviour if i connect my Nuc with passive mini DP - DVI adapter + DVI cable (the resolution in this case is 1920x1200): sometimes shuts down after login screen occured, sometimes - not. Also, i've tried Windows 7x64 installing, and everything worked without below problem in 2560x1440. I've heard about Lapic Kernel patching for Haswell CPU's, but i haven't tried it yet. Where could be the cause of this behaviour in Max OS X? Any suggestions? Here is my suggestion: Try another mini DP - DP cable. Try MINI DP - DUAL LINK DVI adapters like: Monoprice Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt Plus USB To Dual-Link DVI Adaptor Kanex iAdapt C30 MDPC30 Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter StarTech.com mdp 2 dvi Mini DisplayPort to DVI Dual-Link Apple mini Display port to Dual Link DVI adapter Try External usb3.0 video capture card
  17. Configuration of my laptop:- I have attached main details It has Intel HD Graphics 3000, Nvidia GT540M I want to dual boot Windows 8.1 and OS X Maverics I have windows 8.1 installed.
  18. I recently built a computer and put a 3tb HDD in it. Because of MBR, Windows excludes 1tb of the 3. So I thought, Why not fill the terribyte with OSX? So I went looking for kexts to support my build: Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H Intel Core i7 Haswell 3.5Ghz EVGA GeForce GTX660 S2 2GB GDDR5 TrendNET TEW-643PI PCIe I cannot find a kext for the TrendNET internet card, and sadly the location of my computer cannot get an ethernet cable. I've heard of Lnx2Mac's Realtek driver but it says Lion and Sandy Bridge, and my processor is Haswell. Does anybody know of a driver for the TEW-643PI?
  19. This guide will discuss the process of getting OS X Mavericks or Yosemite to run on Vostro 3450 / Inspiron N4110 / XPS L702x using UEFI Clover, no other discussions please. I should start by saying that I'm not responsible for any bricks that may happen if you follow this guide and I'm not saying I will be updating this with every bit of changes I do to my personal system after every minor OSX upgrade. Though, with this kind of setup you shouldn't have to lift a finger after installing OSX updates... Also, don't mirror my files! This is your goal: I'm sure if you ended up here you probably know the majority of limitation that Phoenix SecureCore Tiano firmware applies to this system, but I'll mention them none the less: - Can't boot GPT formatted disk with legacy bootloader such as XPC, Chameleon, Chi*mera - Can't boot UEFI OS or bootloader as UEFI is locked down from the factory - Cardreader is not bootable - Secondary disk installed in place of DVD drive is not bootable either - BIOS doesn't let you disabled Turbo Boost or Hyper Threading So, let's get to the point, shall we? 1. Flashing a UEFI-capable modified BIOS BIOS images are meant only for Dell Vostro 3450, Inspiron N4110 and XPS L702x (both Intel model and AMD/nVidia models) and no other! Vostro 3350 and 3550 use AMI Aptio BIOS, not SecureCore Tiano! Modified BIOS images includes the following changes: - Unlocked write access to MSR 0xE2 - credits to RevoGirl; - Unlocked Advanced Setup options (includes UEFI Boot option) - credits to jkbuha, HairyCube and myself; - CPUID 206A7h microcode updated to V28 - credits to jkbuka (again) and Florin9doi; - Video BIOS for Intel updated from 2098 to 2170 with GOP protocol support (bring 1366x768 resolution to GUI) - credits to Ash; - BIOS DSDT modified to fix Dell's ACPI syntax screw-up while checking for MBT (media buttons) - credits for PhoenixTool fix in 2.14 to AndyP. In order to flash the modified BIOS image you have to obtain it first. Make sure to read the enclosed readme. - Vostro 3450 A13-C4: LINK - Inspiron N4110 A12-C4: LINK - XPS 17 L702x A19-C4: LINK Use WinFlash method if you are on stock DELL BIOS. If you already have UEFI capable BIOS I recommend using PFlash method to prevent BIOS settings from being reset. When you are done flashing go to your BIOS Setup and navigate to Advanced tab, go to Boot Configuration section and enable UEFI Boot. 2. How to install OSX In case you want to boot Legacy Windows from primary HDD (because let's face it, Dell made it pretty hard to use UEFI Windows with all the freezing issues caused by their proprietary software while having a UEFI installation) and you have a caddy in place of your DVD drive with a disk you want to dedicate to booting OSX simply put you can't do that by default BIOS means as caddy is not bootable. You can only make it bootable as a UEFI medium and there is why this guide was even put together. Also I should mention that booting Legacy Windows from UEFI Clover is a big no go with Tiano firmware, so don't expect that. The only way to access Legacy Windows is to either use F12 and choosing Hard Disk or exiting Clover. Now go ahead and download Clover bootloader that you will need for this guide : Required Pre Installation files: LINK 2.1. You have to have a flash drive prepped with UEFI Clover (no need to prepare it in some weird way, just copy the files to it). Just format the flashdrive to FAT32 and put the contents of "UEFI Clover USB" onto it. N.B. Make sure to rename EFI/CLOVER/config-17 or config-14 (depending on the computer model) to just config.plist, EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched-17 and patched-14 to just patched respectively! 2.2. You need a second flash drive as well as an access to a genuine Apple computer (or a VM) that is capable of accessing Mac AppStore in order to download the free Mavericks installation app. Then, using DiskMakerX application you have to make a bootable OSX drive. 2.3. When that's done use UEFI Clover USB drive to boot your OSX medium and partition your HDD in the DVD caddy as you desire, but make sure partition map is GPT. You can then install OSX to that target disk while you are at it. The installation process is usually subdivided into 2 stages. 3. Post installation I've put together a convenient installer that allows you to put some needed finishing touched to your OSX installation on your supported DELL laptop. Go ahead and download the installer (only OSX 10.9 & 10.10 is supported): DELL SCT OSX Support Package v1.1.3 - HERE | - PREV - When you run the installer you will need to select the destination disk you are installing it to. Please note, the files will be copied to EFI System Partition of active boot disk. - Select laptop model - Select motherboard type - Select daughterboard type - Select wireless module (limited support available) - Select "About This Mac" customizations for either Vostro, Inspiron, XPS - Select applications to install If you are installing Support Package for the first time new serial numbers for MBP8,1 model identifier will be generated automatically, if you are reinstalling and already have your config in EFI partition serial numbers will be retained. The installer will put CLOVER onto your system partition and install all the necessary kernel extensions (preconfigured) to support your hardware. 4. Adding Clover to your F12 Boot Manager When you have installed the Dell SCT OSX Support Package package remove your Clover USB drive, reboot your laptop and boot into Clover GUI, press F3 and start the Shell entry that has appeared. While in shell you first need to determine what is the number of file system of the EFI System Partition on your DVD caddy drive. Perform the command: map fs* The ESP on the GPT disk will be marked as GPT,1 and is usually either fs2 or fs3. Let's assume fs3 is ESP. We don't want the BOOT folder as it won't ever be bootable with HDD sitting in DVD caddy, so we get rid of that: fs3: cd \EFI rm -r BOOT Then, to add custom Clover Boot Manager entry you need to do the following: bcfg boot add 3 fs3:\EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi "Clover" We used 3 here as by default in BIOS 0 is diagnostics, 1 is Bios Setup and 2 is Boot Manager. Now, go to your BIOS Setup and just for emergency set the boot order as follows: - USB - CD/DVD Drive - Clover - Hard Disk - eSata - Network - Removable Disk Having this boot order configuration first off will be as a precaution if something ever happens and you can't start the laptop normally, so USB as the first device will allow you to boot a crisis bios recovery PFlash.efi with a BIOS capsule. Also, this kind of boot order will allow you to boot legacy Windows installed on your primary HDD by just exitting Clover, so there won't be a need to go to boot menu (F12) to select HDD when you need to boot Windows. You can add Shell binary to boot menu the same way, you just have to point it to the other EFI application: bcfg boot add 9 fs3:\EFI\CLOVER\tools\Shell64U.efi "Shell" That's it. If you followed the guide at this point you should have a fully working OS X Mavericks installation. 5. Known issues If anyone has any insights on fixing these remaining problems on this range of machines I would be very grateful. So far the problems are as follows: 1. Wireless interface toggle hotkey (Fn+F2) doesn't work in UEFI mode and causes system to freeze, hence it was disabled in OSX ACPI using a custom patch. This is caused by a buggy UEFI implementation by DELL, which is the reason they originally locked it down from the factory. Use software toggles to control status of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. 2. HD3000 still has the ability to utilize VGA port with some minor annoyances, namely - no hotplug support. You have to connect the monitor before you start OSX and when you unplug the monitor in running system, OSX will still think it's connected until you reboot. 3. No support for docking mode for HDMI connector (works ok with VGA), meaning if you close the LID when HDMI screen or projector is connected laptop will enter sleep. 4. Having HDMI screen connected during shutdown and restart will cause the system to stall. Turn of the screen and unplug from laptop before shutting down or restarting. 5. On XPS L702x HDMI connector is physically linked to NVIDIA chip and therefore will not work in OSX due to Optimus being unsupported. DisplayPort connector is linked with Intel graphics and is known to work. 6. Soft rebooting from Windows into OSX will leave the headphone socket non-operational until you cold boot OSX.

  20. Hey, Yesterday I installed OSX 10.9. I installed it with the boot flag -x . Then I booted up and used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install Chameleon and the other other stuff ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Option). Then I've got the following error message when I boot with -v : After that I installed the newest FakeSMC and then I got the same error with the newer version (5.3.901): I also read that I should boot with UseKernelCache=No then I've got a kernel panic: I hope you can help me

    Wacom MobileStudio Pro

    Hi, the new Wacom MobileStudio Pro has just been release in two flavors (13.3 and 15.6"). Would love to know if the (close to) 16" model can run MacOS ? Has someone tried it yet or planning to try ? Is there a way to know if it will work without buying and trying ? Wonder if anyone has managed to make OS X work well with Nvidia mobile Quadro. It seems it may be possible http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/273621-guide-os-x-lion-on-thinkpad-w520/ Also would be interesting to assemble an installing guide like there is one for the Cintiq Companion 2.

  22. Hi, I am trying to install OS X Mavericks / Yosemite on my PC which has following specifications : - AMD FX 8150 - Asus M5A88-M - ATI Raedon 4250 - 4 GB RAM I have downloaded Niresh's OS X Mavericks dmg and using win32 disk imager have created a bootable usb. When I run the command "amdfx -v" sometimes it gets stuck on "PCI Configuration Begin" part and sometimes on "SMC Initialized successfully". Also, tried using different flags like: - npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000 - PCIRootUID = 0 or 1 - GraphicsEnabler = Yes / No - UsbBusFix = Yes - EHCIacquire = Yes Thanks in advance!
  23. What is Wineskin? Wineskin is a tool used to make ports of Windows software to Mac OS X. The ports are in the form of normal Mac application bundle wrappers. It works like a wrapper around the Windows software, and you can share just the wrappers if you choose. Best of all, its free! Download If you are using Mac OS X and want to run Windows applications, the most popular option is to install Windows OS using Bootcamp, or run Windows in a virtual machine. Linux users will know that you can use Wine to install and run Windows applications natively. The good news is that Mac users can run Wine to install Windows applications as well. Wineskin is a Wine-tool ported over to the Mac platform. Check out how you can run Windows applications on Mac OS X. Wineskin is simply an implementation of Wine at its core. For those who are not sure what Wine (an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is, it is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, including Linux and Mac OS X. Installation The installation is pretty straight-forward. 1. Download Wineskin from website. The latest version as of this post is 2.5.12. But now the 2.6.0 is available. 2. Extract the file and move the Wineskin app to your Applications folder. Open it. On the first run, there won’t be any engine showing up in the list. Click the “+” button to download and install the latest engine. The engine is required to make the Windows applications work. Once the engine is installed, you are ready to install Windows applications. Installing Windows applications Before you start, make sure you have the executable file of the desired Windows application with you. Note that Wineskin doesn’t support all the Windows applications out there. Check out Wine’s AppDB to see if the application you want is supported. 1. Click the “Create New Blank Wrapper” button and enter a name for this wrapper. In this example, we will be installing Peazip on Mac. While creating the wrapper, it will prompt you to install mono package for running .Net applications and Gecko package for running HTML-based apps. 2. Once the wrapper is created, open it in Finder; right click and select “Show Package Content.” You should see two folders: “Contents” and “drive_c” and a Wineskin app. Run the Wineskin app. 3. Select “Choose Setup executable” and select the executable file of the Windows application. The installation will proceed just like it does in Windows. Running Windows applications Run the Wineskin app (from the Wrapper folder) again. This time, click “Advanced.” Browse and select the installed application and click “Test Run.” This will run the Windows application. This is what the application will look like: Once you are happy with the test run, the next time you can just double click the Wrapper app to open this application. That’s it.

  24. Hello! I have been attempting to install Mountain Lion on my PC which is currently running Windows 10. Here are my current specs. CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 270 GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon R7 240 (4GB DDR3) RAM: 8GB Motherboard: N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX (Alvorix) However, I am... not doing too well with the installation. Upon my first attempt, I was successful at getting the PC to boot into the OS X boot screen (Apple Logo with loading spinner), but it just sat there spinning and spinning, not doing anything more. So I rebooted and entered in some boot flags. I tried the following combinations: 1) amd -v -x PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 2) amd -v PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 3 )amd -v 4) amd Now, the results were the following: 1) The entire process stopped at "System uptime in nanoseconds = 0" 2) The process froze about a minute into the loading process with the error, "BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory." 3) Same result as #2 4) I can load into the Apple loading screen, but it sits forever and never actually loads the installation setup. So... My question is this: My PC specs can run Mountain Lion, correct? If not, then I apologize for wasting your time. Which versions of OS X can my PC run with the mentioned specs? How would I go about running this on my hardware? I am completely new to this process, so I apologize for my inexperience. But I thank you all for your help!
