Hi guys.

I am new to this forum.

Following some clover guides over the internet and on this forum, I was able to sucessfully install El Capitan. (10.11)

Everything is working great for me (Audio/Keyboard/Wifi/) except for the right usb port.

Can anyone guide me on how can I get that port to work? Moreover, is it possible to update it to 10.11.6?If so, please guide me or even Sierra will be fine.

BTW, heres a quick spec of my N5110.

"N5110 Intel Core i5-2430m

Nvidia 525m (not supported on OS X as they said)
6 GB RAM

320 GB SSD

WIFI (I dont know which card is this, but its working fine without installing any additional kext from the guide I followed)"

 

 

edit: both USB port is working before I installed El Capitan, but after installing only the left one is working. Also, I only have Mac OS X installed on my drive.

USB ports are handled differently than before since El Capitan. Lookup the USB fix. In a nutshell, you need to apply a DSDT patch and use a USB injector kext.

Thanks for your response, I tried the one on post #3124 but resulted to kernel panic, now I need to reinstall the os again since I dont know how to recover from kernel panic after installing a kext. Are you on Sierra? How was it? Which one is more stable/faster?

This works only for Intel controllers, but this notebook uses TI or NEC controllers for USB3.0

Thanks man, better go back to windows. :)

 

Does your modded bios increases the system performance on windows?

Just now, I have switched from i5 2410M to i7 2760M, result KP. Now what patch is required in order to fix kp?

Assuming you use patched AICPUPM kext or Clover Asus AICPUPM kext, you'd be required to generate a new CPU power management SSDT with Pike R Alpha's well-known tool after your CPU swap-out. did you do that? What kind of KP do you get?

 

i5-2410M is dual core. There is no i7-2760M afaik. There is a i7-2670QM which is quad-core. You'll probably have to change your SMBIOS too and target a Sandy Bridge quad-core model such as MBP8,2/MBP8,3 (also fitted with i7-2760QM @2.4GHz). With your previous CPU, you'd have typically been using MBP8,1 SMBIOS.

Here is the list of 2nd gen i5-i7 mobile CPU list

Red rectangled ones are the ones that i heard from people they made it work on dell Inspiron n5110. And also I used i5-2450m and i7-2760qm on my n5110.

Sorry yes it is 2760QM not 'M'

 

Kernel Panic is like

DSMOS: SMC returned incorrect key:0000000000000000000000000.........................
00000000000000000000000000000@/Build_root/Library/Cache/com.apple.xps/Source/DontStealsmacOS/dont_steal_macos.cpp:221

I received this DSDT for same i5 CPU from a member and with no SSDT. Only patch applied is to get AppleALC working.

 

Below is the list of Kexts that I am using:-

ACPIBatteryManager.kext        FakePCIID.kext
ACPISensors.kext               FakeSMC.kext
AppleALC.kext                  GPUSensors.kext
AppleBacklight.kext            IntelBacklight.kext
BrcmFirmwareData.kext          Lilu.kext
BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext          LPCSensors.kext
BrcmPatchRAM2.kext             mXHCD.kext
CPUSensors.kext                RealtekRTL8100.kext
DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext  VoodooPS2Controller.kext
FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext

Even after changing SMBIOS to MBP8,3, S/Ns using Clover Configurator and SMUUID to UUID of installation drive, this issue persist and reproduced with USB installer too.

VT-d enabled works for i5 2410 whereas VT-d disabled works for 2760QM. Any workaround to re-enable it given that this is not 'K' type processor.

No don't install Windows in UEFI mode...Boot "USB Storage" instead of "UEFI:...". This is known problem.

 

After getting macOS, why do you need Windows, by the way?

Which file should I flash from Florin9doi files? Also, shall I use amiflash.zip or phoenixtool202.zip?

 

There are many files

Dell Inspiron N5110 A11 - x1 - x3 .zip

Dell Inspiron N5110 A11 - x4 VesaMode.zip

I have good working 10.13.2. Only problem is distorting lines and very few times blocks distorting screen.

 

I am using hot patches and you can see my config below.

Please let me know if someone knows how to fix those irritating lines spoiling display.
