dell t7500 osx 10.8.2 install

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

So finally got my t7500 running mac 10.8.2

 

This is the 2.9Ghz 6 core Xeon processor with a GTX 285 2GB card and a Samsung 840 pro 256GB hdd....

 

Created usb disk with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].

Didn't use DSDT. Didn't add any kexts

 

Created Boot.plist:

Finally was able to run the installer otherwise was getting a black screen....

 

Ran [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] easy option but didn't use a dsdt.

Added kexts:

ApplePS2Controller

FakeSMC

AppleACPIPS2Nub

BCM5722D for ethernet (i copied from my 10.7.2 system, i think i had to add a device id...forget)

NullCPUPowerManagement

Video card showing up as nVidia GeForce GTX 285 1024 MB so have to redo the gfx string for 2048 (anybody have a gtx285 2GB.plist so I can do the gfx string)

Using a mobilepre usb audio card so not worrrying about audio - all working good....

Don't do sleep but have speedstep enabled and will test out...

 

Scored a 10840 in geekbench so a 10 points better than my 10.7.2 setup....woo hoo.....
