OSX on DELL Vostro 3450 / Inspiron N4110 / XPS L702x UEFI Clover

Same as 3550, the 3350 has completely different BIOS (Insyde H20, I'm not even sure its unlocked and UEFI capable) - so every carefully crafted DSDT patch goes down the drain, completely different audio codec - all audio solutions out of the way as well .. and different keyboard in terms of WMI implementation, so no.. sorry. This guide is valid for 3750 though as its virtually the same machine as 3450 only with 17" and an added secondary HDD feature.

Support added for Inspiron 14R (N4110) AMD Switchable Graphics model, which in hand means support for Vostro AMD model as well.

 

Posted in the original post is the modified custom BIOS of version A12 that includes:

- Unlocked write access to MSR 0xE2 - credits to RevoGirl;

- Unlocked Advanced Setup options (includes UEFI Boot option) - credits to jkbuha, HairyCube and myself;

- Video BIOS for Intel updated from 2098 to 2158 with GOP protocol support (bring 1366x768 resolution to GUI)

 

Modified BIOS A12: LINK

 

The post install files package for 14R includes:

 

* UEFI Clover USB for OEM Board 03NKW8 (perhaps Vostro AMD model uses same id, someone can confirm?)

  - Clover updated to r2260

  - No prepatched DSDT here, same as for Vostro, everything done through SSDT and Clover patches

  - AMD Switchable Graphics disabled with PEG0._INI method calling for ^PEGP._OFF () in SSDT-2.aml

  - HWSensors monitoring supported same as on Vostro - SSDT-1.aml is used for that

  - No pre-coded SSDT for CpuPm, enabled Generate P and C states in Clover config.plist

  - Dell's MBT device check by _OSI is fixed by DSDT patch, on Vostor this is fixed at BIOS level

  - Added @Zeniths's USB3.0 patches for NEC Renesas controller, no additional kexts required

  - Config includes custom EDID to fix screen artifacts (thanks to @Zprood).

 

* Files for /System

  - Created custom com.apple.macbookpro-13-unibody icon to install into CoreTypes.bundle for Profiler customization

  53Wt8.png

  - Added @Zprood's DisplayVendorID-6af:DisplayProductID-183c display override to support more scaled resolution and fix screen panel name in System Profiler

  - Extensions with Platform Profile option have been updated to include Inspiron 14R 03NKW8 board

  - Network kext has been swapped for one that supports onboard RTL8136 controller. This comes from Realtek official page (RTG NIC 2.0.6) and will probably require you to set Configuration mode to manual. IF you experience sleep/wake issue remove this kext to see if it is the cause of the problem.

  

UEFI Clover & post install files: LINK

 

Get the rest of the files for this guide from Vostro package.

 

Update (11/01/13):

If your 14R has AMD 6470M graphics rename OEM 03NKW8 folder to 0WVPMX.

If your 14R has AMD 6630M graphics then keep the name as is.

 

Update (01/01/14):

If your 14R is an Intel-only model rename OEM 0YW3P2 folder to 05TM8C.

With this VoodooPS2Controller can not shine through the multimedia key and the function does not disable the touchpad.

you should take a look about rehabman's voodoops2controller github guide. i give some advice about it. if you use TW's kext, add your board-id under Dell's alias, or you take stock one from rehabman.

1. for brightness key work, install TW's IOWMIController from his guide. then mod dsdt like this( DO IT BOTH _Q80 method and _Q81):

before:

If (LEqual (OSYS, 0x07D6))
  {
     //......//
       If (PWRS)
                            {
                                Store (Local0, BRGA)
                            }
                            Else
                            {
                                Store (Local0, BRGD)
                            }

                            Store (0x03, ^^^^AMW0.INF0)
                            Store (Zero, ^^^^AMW0.INF1)
                            Store (0xE006, ^^^^AMW0.INF2)
                            Store (Local0, ^^^^AMW0.INF3)
                            If (LEqual (DMFG, Zero))
                            {
                                Notify (AMW0, 0xD0)
                            }
           //....//
}

after:

If (LEqual (OSYS, 0x07D6))
   {
      //......//
   }

     If (PWRS)
     {
       Store (Local0, BRGA)
      }
        Else
     {
       Store (Local0, BRGD)
       }
        Store (0x03, ^^^^AMW0.INF0)
        Store (Zero, ^^^^AMW0.INF1)
        Store (0xE006, ^^^^AMW0.INF2)
       Store (Local0, ^^^^AMW0.INF3)
       If (LEqual (DMFG, Zero))
      {
            Notify (AMW0, 0xD0)
       }

2. for disable touchpad from TW's voodoops2controller, you can use PrintScr key to do that, because his remap fn+f3 to PrintScr key. one more thing, you can have it back to Fn+F3, just remap it twice in the custom ps2 map, like:

e01e=e037
e037=e01e 

 e01e is scan code of Fn+F3, e037 is PrintScr.

@TW, i think i should say great work this time.  ;)

Sorry, I think that aliases don't seem to work in VoodooPS2, just copy vostro's custom profile and name it 03NKW8.

Attached is a modified kext that should hopefully work. Brightness keys are commanded through WMI, so you need an extra extension.

VoodooPS2Controller.kext.zip

I can use this bios with Vostro 3550 ?

NO! Can't you read? 

BIOS images are meant only for Dell Vostro 3450 and Inspiron 14R (both Intel model and AMD Switchable Graphics models) and no other!

 

And same question has been answered in this thread already.

 

@Zprood, no need to modify anything, it should work as is.

Either you have installed an original unmodified driver that won't work for new generation of Dell laptops or you have no DSDT patch applied for this kext to attach. You have to see this in IOReg ..

54Y8h.png

if this is absent then something is clearly wrong. I gave you all the files to have a completely working OSX install, I've even written a manual and yet you ask questions that have answers in this thread.

Thanks TW, What I did was to modify the shortcuts Fn + F4 (decrease) Fn + F5 (increase) and it worked! Another question, according to my ioreg you saw, my graphics is disabled completely? Eye on Graphics / Displays and it appears it is correct anyway?

It's not disabled and this can be the cause of default WMI brightness controls failing for you.

Your IOReg also shows AMD as still being active: http://puu.sh/553Gc.png

 

Your PtidTabl and Cpu0Ist tables are not dropped, whilst they should have been with the config I have provided for 14R.

And you obviously didn't follow the guide even in a slightest bit, because you have a custom SSDT table loaded for VOSTRO and not 14R, so this table doesn't have AMD graphics disabling code and to add to that it has IGPU injection which can't be used on 14R because SgRef table already has _DSM method for GFX0 (IGPU) and Clover DropOEM_DSM is unable to drop it properly.

I believe that these tables are set up for me 14R. I do not understand why the graphics card not being disabled because the method is already implemented in SSDT-2 Scope (\ _SB.PCI0.PEG0). SSDT-3 I extracted the script Revogirl. Actually I had not put this method before and now put, and now my audio and wifi does not work. One detail that is present now in the ioreg GFX0, Please find attached files.

Can you explain what is the role of PtidTabl? Should we really drop it?

      Update: On October 24, 2020, using clover to solve the macOS11 beta10 boot problem, you can now enjoy macOS11beta10, and the compatibility of subsequent versions is not guaranteed.
      HIDPI uses a modified version. You can directly execute the hidpi script to get a better experience. If you lose the repair, it is not within the scope of my support.
      Support upgrades without destroying the integrity of the original image.
      There seems to be a problem with the shortcut keys. If you can help solve it, thank you for your contribution.
       
      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:
                                    
                       -/+:.          ningnan@ningnandeMacBook-Air

      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro.

      I have installed MacOS and Windows on the following hardware:
       
      AMD Ryzen 7 3700X MSI B450M Mortar Max Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 5600 XT 6G Samsung 860 QVO, 1 TB SSD (PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x3)/Pci(0x0,0x1)/Sata(0x5,0xFFFF,0x0)) - MacOS on this disk Kingston A2000 SSD 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe (PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x1)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/NVMe(0x1,15-AD-CD-26-28-B7-26-00)) - Windows on this disk  
      OpenCore 0.6.1 MacOS 10.15.7 both disks GPT UEFI  
      Both OSs boot nicely and work as a charm when selecting either of the disks as boot disks in the BIOS.
       
      However, trying to boot Windows 10 from the Opencore Bootmanager (no matter whether PickerMode=internal or OpenCanopy) causes a Windows Blue Screen ("SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED").
      To be on the safe side, I have added an appropriate entry to Misc->Entries:
      <key>Arguments</key> <string></string> <key>Auxiliary</key> <false/> <key>Comment</key> <string>Not signed for security reasons</string> <key>Enabled</key> <true/> <key>Name</key> <string>Windows 10</string> <key>Path</key> <string>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x1)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/NVMe(0x1,15-AD-CD-26-28-B7-26-00)/HD(1,GPT,2E9695CB-0F9A-4005-AADB-2FF9C96AD02C,0x800,0x32000)/\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi</string> It points to the Windows 10 bootmanager on the Windows disk's EFI partition.
       
      What's wrong with that? Why does this cause a BSOD? It is not clear to me why it works when booting from BIOS but not here.
       
      config.plist attached (but maybe it has no relevance for the problem).

      Hello All,
       
      It's been a while that I am trying to update my system to 10.15.16.
      The install seem to start, then at reboot time I only see the Normal boot and the Recovery option from the Clover boot menu.
      None of those 2 allow to complete the update.
       
      Is there any ways to force it to install and/or show the "Update" option on the Clover boot screen?

      Pre-Installation
       
      I will not go through the basics since it is explained in details here on this site. Briefly, the process is to:
      Get Clover Get Catalina macOS installer Create USB with 2 MBR partitions (FAT32 for Clover and HFS+J for the installer)  
       
      Required kexts
      AppleALC.kext Lilu.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext VirtualSMC.kext WhateverGreen.kext  
       
      Config.plist
      I used the one provided by RehabMan called config_HD615_620_630_640_650.plist. Download it from GitHub. It has almost everything you will need with only few edits for audio.
      Edits:
      [CPU] Make sure there is lilcpu=9 setting in boot arguments needed for Kaby Lake R CPU to be recognised correctly. [GPU] Make sure there is a patch GFX0 to IGPU under ACPI->DSDT [GPU] Under Devices->Properties->PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0) make sure that the AAPL,ig-platform-id value is 00001B59, and the device-id value is 16590000 [AUDIO] Under Devices->Properties->PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x1f,3) set the layout-id to 40 and the device-id to 70A10000 [SMBIOS] Set Mac model ID is iMac19,2  

       

       
      Notes
      For some reason with latest version of Clover the install partition was not visible. If you run into the same issue you can downgrade Clover to r5103, which worked perfectly. WiFi / BT Intel 3168 NGW needs to be replaced if one needs WiFi. Someone mentioned that to get HDMI work properly you may need to change AAPL,ig-platform-id value to 00001659 for PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0) - not my case but may be considered if you get this issue. Don't forget to generate your serial and other SMBUS values before signing in with iCloud services.
