Dell Vostro 3750 with i7 and Nvidia G525M not installing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm wanting to get Mountain Lion installed onto my Dell Vostro 3750 with the following specs:

Intel i7 2360qm 2.20ghz

Nvidia GT 525M Graphics Card

8gb Ram

500 GB SATA Hard Drive

However I seem to be having an issue. I've tried both the Iatakos ML2 and the ###### Method but can't even get to an install screen when booting from USB.

In Iatokos ML2 I manage to get to the boot, I press enter and all I get is the Apple Logo and it sticks at that.

With ###### I can enter the boot menu again, I press it but it stays as a black screen.

I've set the hard drive to ACHI but in terms of other BIOS options there just really isn't many.

I've run in verbose mode and noticed it does seem to hang when getting to the graphics card, I'm thinking this is the issue.

As I can't see a hackintosh with a Dell Vostro 3750 I'm wondering if it's even possible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Sorry! I forgot, if you use SSDT V3 you have to remove the _DSM method from DSB1
    • Many thanks! Yeah I'll try again! Hopefully you can think of something later  
    • I check when I get home. I can tell you in advance that you have to use the SSDT V3 (with your ACPI path) if you have disconnected the cable, and your devices must be connected and turned on before boot. It's all still a work in progress
    • I expected it to not work, especially after so many attempts at different methods. This one sounded the least likely to work, and as soon as I booted, my Apollo turned on its HOST light and it's been working since!   I added my clover arbitrary device as 32:00.00 (my BR1A) and that's it. I only pulled the cable from the Mobo but not the card... not sure if that matters.
    • As the prices for Radeon cards have been dropping during the last weeks I finally decided to buy a Sapphire Radeon Nitro+ RX570 8GB and received the card this afternoon. With 10.13.4 Apple added a number of new framebuffer personalities to the AMD9500Controller.kext and as the framebuffer personality "Orinoco" matches the connector layout of my card (DP, DP, HDMI, HDMI, DVI) I decided to give it a try and got an instantly working system. No framebuffer patch is needed anymore. See for yourself:     Mieze
