Hello Guys
I want to install mac os just to be able to use xcode for programming, so would Mac OS performance match real mac devices (as I have i7 + 8GB ram + 256GB Samsung SSD) or would be slow like Vertual box one?
and, is it doable now with El Capitan?
is it possible to use external HDMI monitor after installing mac?

 

thanks in advance :)

Check your DSDT for an important DSDT info (or patch) in Method _INI that is necessary to activate USB3.0 capability: you need to "simulate" a Windows Vista/7/8/10 mode under OS X ("Darwin" kernel).

 

For instance, this is what I had to do with my DSDT on my E6440.

* Before:

       Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized)        {
            Store (0x07D0, OSYS)
            If (CondRefOf (\_OSI, Local0))
            {
[...]
                If (_OSI ("Windows 2006"))
                {
                    Store (0x07D6, OSYS)
                }
[...]

* After:

       Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized)        {
            Store (0x07D0, OSYS)
            If (CondRefOf (\_OSI, Local0))
            {
[...]
                If (LOr (_OSI ("Darwin"), _OSI ("Windows 2006"))) /* Simulates Win Vista mode in OS X */
                {
                    Store (0x07D6, OSYS)
                }
[...]

`

USB3.0 XHCI controller cannot be activated in I/O without this patch and will not register in IOReg. The patch applies to all OS X versions.

 

NB: As hinted above, the Darwin version check can be added to subsequent Windows version like 2009, etc. I verified that point.

I already have Darwin fix in DSDT

 

If (_OSI ("Darwin"))
                {
                    Store (0x07D2, OSYS)
                }

And USB 3.0 are displayed in "about this mac" in 10.9.5 and working.

On 10.11.3 USB 3.0 works too,but not displayed in "about this mac"

I think that "simulating win vista mode" will not solve the problem (but I'll try,thanks)

BCM4352

 

 

azurewave aw-ce123h ( http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.TRS0&_nkw=azurewave+aw-ce123h&_sacat=0 )

with this card you can use airdrop and continuity, as i know :-)

 

try to use it

 

I have installed 

AzureWave AW-CE123H BCM4352 wlan card

 

Now which kext I have to use to make it working including Airport and bluetooth? This guide is very confusing http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/292542-airport-pcie-half-mini/

It's kinda off-topic in this thread since not specific to the InspironN5110... You should move your post to a Wifi/BT related section.

 

This being said, these threads explain what you need to do to get your BCM4352 wireless to work:

updated my bios and sucesfully installed 10.10.5 but after bios my cpu fan running too fast and making noise anyone know how to fix it ?

 

Mine did the same thing after the new BIOS. Must have to do with the unlocked MSR.

 

Anyway, resetting the BIOS settings and removing the battery for a few minutes fixed it for me.

Don't reset bios. It will broke uefi boot. Just remove the battery for a couple of seconds.

Thanks for the heads up. I flahsed an unlocked non-UEFI BIOS so I didn't have this problem.

In OS X, allocated HD3000 memory is shared memory and it depends entirely and directly on quantity of RAM...

 

Default HD3000 shared memory allocation is in the following way:

  • 2Go RAM -> 256Mo for Video
  • 4Go RAM -> 384Mo for Video
  • 8Go RAM -> 512Mo for Video except on 15" and 17" MacBook apparently

 

Shared memory allocation is basically controlled by the OS and you cannot adjust this unless you patch the SNB frame buffer kext. You can Google for it.

Use this, is perfect

 

HD3000 vram by default is 512 MB. Terminal command to increase vRAM for HD3000 graphics

 

From 512MB to 1GB

 

cd /S*/L*/Ext*/AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext/C*/M*

 

sudo cp AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.backup

 

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\xC7\x45\xBC\x00\x00\x00\x20|\xc7\x45\xBC\x00\x00\x00\x40|g' AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB

 

sudo touch /S*/L*/Extensions

 

From 1 GB to 2 GB

 

cd /S*/L*/Ext*/AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext/C*/M*

sudo cp AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.backup

 

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\xC7\x45\xBC\x00\x00\x00\x40|\xc7\x45\xBC\x00\x00\x00\x80|g' AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB

I disagree: 512Mb is not the default vram. It does depend on RAM quantity as stipulated by Apple:

But the patches do seem to work for sure...

Whilst I've not found indications of 256Mo in the SNB frame buffer kext, there is a clear entry for 384Mo and that seems to be the minimum. This is true for Yosemite 10.10.5 as well as other OS X versions such as Mavericks or El Capitan. As such, a possible patch would consist of:

find (384Mo):

C7 45 BC 00 00 00 18

replace by (512Mo):

C7 45 BC 00 00 00 20

or:

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\xC7\x45\xBC\x00\x00\x00\x18|\xc7\x45\xBC\x00\x00\x00\x20|g' AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB

 

That's what I did for the above tests.

Managed to install 10.11.4 but not all functions work. I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to create the bootable usb with clover on it and replaced the config.plist with the one from page 1 with some mod as advised by Julio Vargas and use the dsdt and ssdt-4 correspondingly. Then I delete all the kexts inside 10.10 folder and delete all kexts inside 10.11 folder except the fakesmc and copy all kexts from the preinstall folder into the 10.11. Managed to install but USB3.0, sound not working and the touchpad is a little bit erratic.

 

Any advise would be much appreciate. Thank you.

Ok. Managed to get the audio working. Thank you kenjiloc for the info. Deleted some line from config.plist like tipped by kenjiloc then install his applehda.kext. My sound now works great. Now trying to get the USB3 to work. Anyone can guide me?

 

My config

Dell Inspiron 15R N5110

Core i7 2630QM

Nvidia GT525M

8GB Ram

WD 500GB HDD

Atheros 9285

 

Thank you
