Please read the pinned topics in New User Lounge and put your hardware in your signature like many other users and I have done this.

 

Have fun!

Hello demented!

 

At first please put your hardware in signature, like I have done it.

 

Which operating system is installed? Is it an UEFI install?

 

Do you have an external hardisk in an enclosure?

 

Does it mater, if you have to do a complete new install?

 

Do you want a dual booting system (WIN7 or 8 and OSX)?

 

Do you have an install medium for Win7/8?

 

The best  and most secure way for you to try to install OSX is an ext. HD. You also need an 8 GB Usb- stick ( 2 of this size if you have to create an Win7/8 one)

 

Have fun!

I think on the Dell you did not patch the AppleRTC.kext.

 

If want to patch this kext you have just to copy over the following to terminal window and execute:

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x30\x44\x89\xf8|\xeb\x30\x44\x89\xf8|; s|\x75\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|\xeb\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC

Until now i knew nothing about your Cpu. I guess, it is perhaps a Core i5-3320m?

 

Please upload your photos from above as attachement.

 

Have fun!
