HELP with Inspirion 1525 on 10.7.5 plz

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Im trying to update from 10.7.3 to 10.7.5 but im getting kernel panics out the wazoo, im wondering if someone has a "pack of drivers/etc" that will work? because when i do get it to install (on a external) my internal drive will not show up and the bootup time is insanely long (and thats in safe mode) anyone that got this system working that can help would greatly be appreciated.

I will update in a few, i dunno whats going to happen... thanx for the rapid reply...

Hi,

I have perfectly working Dell Inspiron 1525 but I am using 10.6.8 because it is enough for me and no time to upgrade.

The bootloader is Clover and Clover was tuned to be perfect namely for 1525.

Some rules:

1. Model must be MacBook4,1. It is not MacBookPro5,2! Sleep/Wake, restart, shutdown depend on IOPlatform.plist that I manually tuned.

2. X3100 graphics 32bit only. I know there was a driver from 10.6.2 that works in 64bit. But those driver is quirky. Don't use it! Use IA32.

3. The framebuffer driver depends on SMC keys RPlt and EPCI. If these keys set wrongly you will have KP. My advice: use FakeSMC 3.3.1 with my settings.

4. There are two models of Inspiron 1525: with 1280x800 matrix and 1440x900 matrix (in my case). Second case AAPL,DualLink=1, not sure about first case.

5. All functionality depends on DSDT. Clover is very good tuned to make you good DSDT.

See my report and you find here all my tunings. DarwinDumper_2.6.5_Clover_IA32_1147_1149_SL_root.zip

Additionally I can say that I used some patched or third-party kexts:
