Dell M4500 Precision Mobile Workstation

Recommended Posts

Have a D620 running tripple boot with XP, 7 and OSX 10.6.5.


I'm getting one of these to replace it at work and was wondering if anyone here has tried to install OSX on it or if i'm entering virgin territory.


Thanks for any help or direction.

i did try

Idened V1.3..

it installs perfectly without any problems but after installation i have tried all -v -x -f and -h (i guess i dont know what i am doing but) it always restarts and gives error.

I had put AHCI mode also but in vain. it has installed perfectly but fails to start, doesnt even stop to give an error as to why its restarting so i cant even troubleshoot.

I am trying Deneb v1.5 which is comptiable with M4400 laptop. here is a full youtube video to see DIY/walkthru.

    • here it is,
    • Baio77 per me ciò che hai scritto è abbastanza "arabo" non ho capito nulla... comunque mi sono rivolto prevalentemente a questo forum per sistemare delle cose che non funzionavano e molto gentilmente Gengik me le ha sistemate, facendo lui però... io ho solo capito che l'impostazione per la grafica non va messa perché crea fastidiosi sfarfallii all'interno delle applicazioni nonché al finder nella parte superiore a sinistra (se leggi i post precedenti trovi le descrizioni)... stop sono riuscito a risolvere solo questa cosa da me leggendo anche in altri forum  proverò il tuo config.plist pulito e farò sapere. Grazie dell'aiuto
