Hackintosh on Dell Demension E520

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, i've been trying to turn my Dell Demension E520 into a hackintosh machine. Unsurprisingly,I've came into a few obstacles. First off, i'm using ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]) W/ Mac OS x Lion on a USB Drive, It's setup to boot and DOES, i am prompted with the mac os install screen and just when i think that it's going to work, it says Select the disk where you want to install Mac OS X, my drive(s) cannot be seen, even by going into the Disk Utility. Based on the research i've done alot of people are having this problem because of SATA/ACHI/RAID issues, and i know that setting the BIOS is one of the first steps in the process that need to be done. The only problem is that this BIOS in particular will not let me change that particular setting, so i've search forums and people have suggested using Kext Wizard to inject some modded kext files into the USB /Extras/ folder, i've done that but still The Mac OS X install screen still won't show my drives. Does anyone have any ideas? Here are the kext files that have been added to the USB drive. Am i missing any?













Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The only and best advice i can give you is to use this tutorial to install OSX: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/page-24?do=findComment&comment=1937401


Follow it closely: don't leap any steps. Good luck!

P.S.: i just saw you're talking about Lion. Well, is your PC 64-bit capable and have a Core2Duo or newer CPU? I really suggest you try Mountain Lion instead...
