Hi. Can anybody advice my: what kind of model will be better for my laptop and what I must to change in BIOS.   

 

Dell Latitude D630: Mobile DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo T7250, 2000 MHz (10 x 200);

Motherboard Chipset: Intel Crestline-GM GM965;

Video Adapter: Mobile Intel® 965 Express Chipset Family (384 MB);

3D Accelerator: Intel GMA X3100;

IDE Controller: Intel® ICH8M 3 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 2828

IDE Controller: Intel® ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850

Disk Drive: WDC WD5000BEVT-00A0RT0 ATA Device (465 GB, IDE) : has 2 partitions (HTFS): C: - Windows 7 Ultimate (but I'm ready to replace for Win XP SP3 or for Vista)...

Optical Drive: HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-T21N ATA Device

 

 

I tried: [iNTEL ONLY] iAtkos S3 10.6.3 ver.2, SnowLeo Mac OSX86 for intel AMD, and MacOSXInstall universal 10.5.7 v2.2.

 

I modified in BIOS: ATA for AHCI. Tried tu put one or 2 cores, etc. 

 

Help me, please!!! Thanks a lot!

IAtkos S3 v2 works with the Dell D630 with intel graphics. Some key things.

 

1. Burn your DVD at 3x speed.

 

2. Sometimes you have enter boot options (F8) and just type -v and hit enter.

 

3. You have to be selective about what you choose under customize.

 

 

 

I have made it work almost everytime. When I get home I will walk through it again and post up a mini guide.

iAtkos S3 V2

 

When you boot with your DVD in drive, press F8. When the prompt comes on, type in:

cpus=1 (this will force your Dell D630 to run one core only, prevents it from lagging and skipping).

 

When you see the Language selection, choose English (of course).

 

Format your drive using Disk Utility to GUID partition.

 

After that, Click next twice

 

Choose "Customize" on the lower left corner of the window.

 

on Bootloader, Choose "Chameleon RC5"

Boot options, leave it blank

On patches, leave the default ones (/Extra directory, fakesmc etc etc...) and add in a modified boot kernel (quoopo 10.3.0)

On Drivers, choose Intel SATA. Then head on to LAPTOP something... choose the first three (i forgot what they are...) and dont forget the NTFS-3g... just check the box.

 

VGA, choose the one that has Intel-> X3100

Network... forgot which one the D630 has... but if you have 3945abg as your wireless, that only works on UNSECURED wireless networks.

 

Try that for now and if something goes wrong, keep trying and take notes on what you change so you know what you did.

 

Good luck and have fun.

Trying to get my Latitude D630 going right now with Iatkos S3 v2 but not having much luck. What did you guys use for video, mine has Intel GMA 965 which is not an option to pick in Iatkos, I don't believe I have the X3100 so I don't know what to choose for video.

 

Thanks

Everything is working on mine except laptop video ( I have to use an external monitor) and wireless.

 

boot loader - Chameleon RC4

boot options - 32bit boot

patchs = default BUT change uncheck RTC and select 32bit rtc.

Drivers = under sata select ACHI Sata (do not choose the intel also make sure ACHI is enabled in the bios)

Under sound = voodooHDA

Under PS/2 = voodooPS2

Under CPU Management = VoodooPstate

Under Laptop Hardware = Battery, Card Reader, and TSC Sync

VGA = Select intel x3100 32bit frame buffer (IF YOU HAVE INTEL GRAPHICS) if you have nvidia I cannot tell you)

NETWORK = Wired select the broadcom 5755m (I am not sure on wireless. The intel 3945 wireless is not an option so I skipped it.)

 

now install. It takes about 20 min, all of the sudden it will reboot. Here lies the problems. You have to have an external monitor connected to get video. I am working on getting my laptop display to work. When I get a solution I will post it. Also my wireless does not work. I am working on that as well. But this post was made from one of my D630's running 10.6.3. I am still working on getting it to update. Once I do I will gladly write up something far more thorough.

 

::::EDIT::::

 

OK so I now have video working on the laptop display. I am stuck at 1024x768 32bit color.

I opened my main drive and went into system/library/extensions and deleted all the files relating to intel GMA. I then opened disk utility and did a permissions repair on the drive then rebooted. Laptop booted up to the internal lcd. Now to move on and get the resolution corrected to 1280x800.

 

Making progress.

If you have the nVidia Quadro on your D630, like I do, then use the Graphics Enabler option in the bootloader options menu.

 

3945abg works, but only on UNSECURED networks (No security, WEP, WPA) Unless you wanna replace it with the DW1390 you can buy online (bought 10 for 5 bucks a piece) ;)

I am also trying to install MAC 10.6.2 on a Dell Latitude D630. I am using another boot loader and an original MAC Snow Leopard Boot disc. 10.6.2. It starts to install but the monitor turns off. I plugged in an external monitor and tried again. After using the boot loader (EFI Boot Loader I got from another site) I put in the Snow Leopard Disc. It boots but the Screen is so large I can only see the top portion of the Screen. Can any one else help me out ?

I saw in your signature that you upgraded the D630 to 10.6.6

 

Could you please explain the steps taken?

 

Thanks in advance

Installed Iatkos 10.6.3

 

Downloaded and installed 10.6.4 Combo Update

 

Copied IOUSBFamily.kext and IOUSBMassStorage.kext from /S/L/E

 

Downloaded and installed 10.6.5. Re-installed above kext back to S/L/E - Reboot

 

Downloaded and installed 10.6.6. Re-installed above kext back to S/L/E - Reboot

 

At least this is what I did.

I also have a Dell D630. I've install iATKOS v2 10.6.3 fine but wireless don't work. Screen resolution max at 1028X720. Do we have to do the update incrementally 10.6.3 -->10.6.4 --> 10.6.5-->10.6.6 ? I've tried going from 10.6.3 --> 10.6.6 (combo update) and it gave me a garbled screen (black screen) afterwards. I have a gmax3100 video btw. Also, any advice on how to get wireless working ? What kext ?

i have the nvidia d630, running 10.6.6, my graphics are running in high resolution 1280x1024 on an external monitor but i have a few issues. while it seems smooth, certain programs and browsing on firefox seems a bit delayed, can anyone tell me how i can check to make sure both my processors are running at full accelerated speed? also does anyone know how to make it work on vga output from the docking station, thanks in advance

Any other progress here?

 

I installed iATKOS v3 s2 in a Dell D630 with intel x3100 video card, everything working fine except video. I tried D630 kext pack but it just give me kernel panics.

 

Any genius can please tell me how to make the graphics work from a iATKOS install on D630-intel laptop.

 

Thanks, any help will be so much for me.

 

PD: Excuse me for my english.

 

Cheers,

Starcarr

Oh, actually I have it working right now. I'm now in a Dell D630 with intel X3100 on Snow Leopard 10.6.7 with a 1280x800 resolution.

 

But thanks anyway.

 

PD: I'm writing a guide.

PD2: Excuse me for my english.

I followed these instructions and they worked, and I did do the delete GMA files to get the LCD to work but all the GMA files where X3100 files to make the video work correct? Also I am to at the point the screen only is running in 1024x768 did anyone figure out how to make the resolution to its 1440x900 or 1280x800?

 

Starcarr can you tell us what you did?

 

From Dell

"DISPLAY 14.1” wide aspect: WXGA (1280x800) 220 nits or WXGA+ (1440x900) 220 nits"

 

Also, thanks for everyone that has posted up and I'm new here =)
