THIS INSTALLATION ISN'T WITHOUT RISKS SO TAKE ALL THE PRECAUTIONS BEFORE DOING ANY FOOLISH ACTION, BACKUP YOUR DATA! This tutorial will describe the steps to install macOS Sierra on a Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M. If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English. 1. Credits/Sources Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide: OSX Latitude.com Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac Forum member Jake Lo from OSXLatitude.com for helping me out with installing. Morpheousman and Polyzargon from InsanelyMac who helping me with my other topics. (Dell 780) MacPeet, Chris1111 and all other forum members who helping out the community. 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 installation screen will be prompt. Click on Continue - Continue. Click on Change Install Location on the right bottom. Choose your USB Stick named Install macOS Sierra Public Beta click on Continue. Click on Customize on the left bottom. Choose Install Clover in the ESP Choose Bootloader : Install boot0af in MBR Choose in Clover EFI for CloverEFI 64- Bits SATA At last choose Install RC Scripts on target volume Click after that on Install. 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. Sierra will be installed on the HDD, this will take about 6 - 15 minutes depending of your HDD. Upon completion, system will restart a 1st time. Press F12 key to choose the boot device. When the Clover Boot screen is visible, Choose "Boot macOS Install from Sierra". macOS will continue to Install the OS on your HDD this will take about 10 -25 minutes after that the installation will be finished and your laptop will reboot. 10. Booting for the first time macOS Sierra When the Clover Boot screen is visible, Choose "Boot MAC OS X from Sierra" You will eventually get to the setup screens for macOS Sierra. Go through the setup process to setup macOS Sierra. At the country selection choose your country and press continue. Select Your Keyboard choose ABC and press Continue.

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! You’ve successfully installed macOS Sierra onto your Dell Latitude E6320. TROUBLESHOOTING 20. iMessage & FaceTime Fix You will need MLB and Rom numbers from a legit Mac device that is on the mac server. Run iMessage debug on a iMac, Macbook, etc and make a copy and paste of the Terminal output. Open Clover Configurator. Mount EFI Partition. Import config.plist from EFI/EFI/Clover (File , import configuration, browse to config.plist and select). In Clover Configurator Click on RT Variables, Enter Rom and MLB Values from iMessage output from valid iMac device. Save changes to config.plist. Reboot, Sign into iMessage. iMessage and FaceTime should now both be working. 21. BOOT 0 Error If you are using a 4k HDD you can get boot:0 error, to solve this issue do the following. Reboot system back into Sierra installer (USB)FLASH DRIVE). Run Disk Utility find the Disk Identifier (eg. disk0s2). Unmount the drive you installed Sierra on. Launch Terminal and execute the following command: dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2. Exit Terminal. Boot Normally. Run macOS Sierra 10.12 E6320.pdf
  2. 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.

  11. Hello all. I am new to these forums and Hackintoshes in general. I successfully installed OS X Snow Leopard using an official Snow Leopard install DVD I own and some other booting tools. I suppose I don't have an official Hackintosh in the sense that I run OS X from as a guest machine. If it helps, I use Oracle's VirtualBox. The VM runs perfectly fine. I used a combined update to update from the first version of Snow Leopard (available on the install disk) to the last/latest version of Snow Leopard. So, with that being said, is it possible to update the operating system while my guest is running without having to change things around? I'd ideally like to be running OS X Yosemite. The Yosemite OS update is available from the App Store for free right now, but I'm a little hesitant to run it at the moment. I was reading somewhere that you should only update your Hackintosh with combined updates from Apple. Any truth to this? I sincerely apologize for my ignorance. As you can tell, I'm still learning. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  12. Disclaimer: This is my app, not sure about the rules on promotional threads on InsanelyMac. I don't normally post threads about my own stuff, but I thought this would be pretty useful to the Hackintosh community. InsanelyMac & TonyMacx86 have helped me so much. So I went from W7 (which had a multitude of great apps for dealing with more than one monitor like Ultramon) to an OS X Lion Hackintosh, which I loved infinitely more but apparently didn't work too well out of the box with a multiple monitor setup. A bit about my setup for anyone who cares: Mobo: ASUS P6T CPU: i7 920 GPU: GTX 470 SLI (ugh, huge headache not knowing how to do EFI strings) RAM: 6GB OCZ Gold Monitors: 2x 24" Samsung SyncMasters. =========================== Here's my attempt at dealing with the multiple monitor problem: Multimon. (<- Click to view in App Store) Features: • Multiple Menu Bars ⁃ Should work for any number of monitors, the max I was able to test up to was 3 though. (Hackintoshers with 9 monitor setups, please let me know ). • Advanced Window Management ⁃ You're more productive with another monitor but nobody wants to drag windows left and right. Easily send a window to any of your monitors via a drop down or a hotkey. Maximize or minimize too! • Automatic Window Resizing ⁃ A lot of us hackintoshers don't have the luxury of matching dual cinema displays . This'll automatically resize windows that are too large onto smaller monitors. • Hotkeys ⁃ Pretty customizable hotkeys for a bunch of the features listed above as well as quickly hiding all menu bars, etc. So yup, that's it. You can tweet me for support / feedback at @delveapps. Chat with me about hackintosh / apps / design / tech / anything at @aaronykng . Hope you guys find it useful. Look forward to hearing what you guys think.

  16. Hi, last week I've been working with my AMD PC to install Hackintosh Yosemite (I tried to install Mavericks and I have the same problem) and all it's ok but the graphics are so bad and the resolution too (I can't change it or I don't know how). How can I fix the graphics problem? I haven't a graphics card but I have an APU with integrated graphics. This is my hardware : AMD A8-7600 APU Processor with Radeon R7 Graphics (integrated 4 Cores CPU + 6 Cores GPU) MSI Motherboard A78M-E35 2x 4Gb Crucial RAM DDR3 1600 Mhz No graphics card It's impossible to play any game... Thank you so much.

    ASUS X201E - come fare?

    Ciao a tutti, sono un vecchio hackintosher che per un lungo periodo ha abbandonato le pratiche di hackintosh ma mi vorrei nuovamente cimentare dato che ho acquistato un notebook economico ma interessante, soprattutto sotto il profilo osx. Il modello è esattamente questo: http://www.asus.it/Notebooks/Versatile_Performance/X201E/#specifications Io ho processore Celeron 847 @ 1.10ghz 2gb DDR3 1333mhz Hard disk 500gb LAN Atheros AR8162 WLAN Atheros AR9485 VGA Intel Graphic HD4000 LCD 11,6" @ 1366x768 16:9 Non ho altre notiize, ma più tardi vi farò la lista HW ID delle periferiche se serve. Potete darmi una mano a capire come installare OSX, in qualunque versione dalla Snow in poi qui sopra? Partendo dal presupposto che non ho nè un mac nè un hack però..... Grazie a tutti dell'aiuto.
  19. Hi Everyone , I just put my new GTX 970 in my macpro early 2008 today ! Everything is working (my 3 screens via DVI (2X) and display port (1X). I downloaded the latest webdriver and CUDA drivers. BUT , When i run for exemple the cinebench test from MAXON I only have 35 FPS, which is my previous score with my ATI Radeon 5870 1G memory... I saw a guy making the test on youtube he has 114 FPS !!! I also tested premiere with CUDA but I didn't notice any gain in the workflows or on the effects CUDA is supposed to accelerate. Same in adobe media Encoder , I did rendering with my old ATI : 25 Minutes and with the new gtx : 24:30 ??? Does someone have an idea about that or do I miss something ? I saw some people playing with <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>nvda_drv=1</string> and things like this ??? but I didn't need that for the card to work... Anyway, thank you very much to anyone with help because for now I'm very disappointed with my new GTX . Robin
  20. Hello all, Lurked the forum for a bit, been trying to get my hands on a netbook to run OSX. Been a bit of a run-around trying to find a decent one that someone doesn't want an arm and a leg for, thought I'd try the good folks here. After much perusing the web and reading, I've settled on a few different models with which I would be happy; Dell Mini 10v Asus Eee PC 1000HE HP Mini 1000 Lenovo s10 (Although I'd like it with the 6-cell battery) Samsung n310 (Side note: That raised "Samsung" logo is hideous) Asus Eee PC 1201NL I'd be happy with any of those, although my top pick would be a Mini 10v. I've been driving myself mad trying to find them on eBay, so I thought I would try here. If anyone has anything, I'd love to see it! Thanks!
  21. Salve a tutti. Sono abbastanza informato sull'installazione di osx su macchine non intel. Il problema sorge con questo pc: Acer Aspire M3630 con le seguenti specifiche: MB: ACER EG31M CPU: INTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 RAM: 3GB HDD: 1 X 320GB GPU: NVIDIA GEFORCE 8400GS ( da cambiare ) Installai già leopard, tempo addietro, moddando il bios e seguendo un'altra guida già presente sul forum. Ho fatto vari tentativi, utilizzando anche guide diverse, ma la mobo sembra non riuscire a supportare mavericks. Prima di abbandonare il tutto, vorrei chiedervi una mano. Avete qualche suggerimento?
  22. Installazione eseguita con successo (http://www.insanelym...ento-chameleon/) ora ci sono alcune cose da ritoccare. 1- Il sistema si avvia esclusivamente da bootloader su usb anche se l'ho installato nel disco di avvio di OSX 2- Da informazioni del mac leggo che la HD4000 non viene riconosciuta ma c'è scritto solamente GPU generico con 64MB di memoria dedicata e non viene rilevato nessun kext installato per la periferica 3- L'nVidia credo sia riconosciuta ma senza memoria dedicata (ed ho 2GB) 4- Non funziona il multitouch 5- Risolvere problema wifi (so che al momento non c'è un kext per l'AR9485) 6- Card reader 7- Batteria con poca durata (da icona su finder massimo 1h45 di autonomia col 100%) 8- Tasti rapidi su tastiera (È possibile attivarli? Retroilluminazione?) 9- Dual boot, come? Grazie a tutti in anticipo! Aspetto risposte!
  23. I've been running a hackintosh for the last year which works well. However I now need to have intel virtualisation working with it due to developing with docker (and oracle's virtual box). Even though intel virtualisation is enabled in the bios (and also works in windows on the same machine - I use dual ssd one for windows one for OS X), it isn't working in OS X yosemite and I get virtual box reporting that I don't have an x86 compatible cpu but an i686 one - known to show than intel virtualisation isn't enabled). I know intel virtualisation is enabled by default on normal macs but has anyone got this to work with a hackintosh and how? Is there a way to confirm independently of virtual box that it is/isn't enabled? Not sure if clover can override the bios settings and disable it somehow? thanks, Specs intel i5 - 4570 Board: gigabyte Z87M-D3H OS : Yosemite 10.10.4 clover:3259 (Graphics 780ti)
