Run OSX Mavericks on a Dell Latitude E6320

This tutorial will describe the steps to install Mavericks on a Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M.

The installation goes to the latest version of 10.9.2, and when there is a new update i will change the tutorial as soon as possible.

If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial.

 

I have also included the PDF file of the guide and the zip file to install OSX Mavericks.

 

A special thanks goes to Jake Lo from OSX Latitude.com.

 

I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English.

1. Credits/Sources

Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide:

2. Requirements

Here are the requirements:

  • A Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M – This is necessary to install OSX Mavericks for this tutorial
  • A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX Mountain Lion.

    Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended.

  • A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger).
  • A copy Mavericks 10.9 GM – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the Mavericks Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store.
  • 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while.
  • An SSD or HDD to install 10.9 to – For me, I used a 250GB partition to install 10.9 to.
  • An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor.
  • myHack – myHack is a mac program that modifies the official OS X Mavericks installer, and writes it ontoa USB Drive. You can then use this myHack USB Drive to run the Mavericks installer on a PC, myHack works with Mac OS X Snow Leopard and newer.
  • Install_E6320.zipThis ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared.
Note: The files for number 9 "Install_E6320.zip" contains the following files and directory's :
  • Extra - Chameleon Wizard - Kext Utility - ShowHiddenFiles - MyHack - Wireless app2 - Wlan_TP-LINK – Brightness Fix v1.1 – VoodooHDA Prefpane
3. My Specs

My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M Laptop computer with the following specs.

NOTE: A Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor is recommended to use the full potential of OS Mavericks because the on board wifi doesn't work.

  • - Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.5GHz, 3MB cache, Dual Core
  • - 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
  • - Western Digital 250GB HDD
  • - INTEL HD3000 Video
  • - Intel 825xx onboard network
  • - Bluetooth radio onboard (works OOB)
  • - IDT 92HDxxx HD audio onboard
  • - TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor
  • - Apple Magic Trackpad (only @home)
  • - Apple Wireless Keyboard US (only @home)
  • - Apple Magic Mouse
4. Preparing your SSD or HDD for install on a MBR-partitioned drive

If you intent to install OSX86 Mavericks on the same Hard disk as your windows follow the steps below.

For a clean install on a new formatted hard disk go to Chapter 5.

If you’re in Windows 7, you can easily make a new partition on an SSD or HDD via the Disk Management program.

  • Start>Run (or Windows key on your keyboard plus R).
  • diskmgmt.msc (press enter after typing that)
  • Find your drive, right-click on it, and go to Shrink Volume.
  • Wait for it to calculate the amount of space you can make your partition, and enter in your amount (for an exact GB amount, multiple your desired amount of GB times 1024, so a 20GB partition would be 20480MB).
  • Let it make your partition. It will show up as unallocated space.
  • Format the new unallocated space as NTFS and give it a label (mine was Mavericks).
  • Done!
5. Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk (USB)

Start OSX Maqvericks, Mountain (Lion) or Snow Leopard to prepare your USB Flash drive

Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive thru Disk Utility in Mac OS X:

  • Extract the zip file Install_E6320.zip to your Mac OS X desktop
  • If you don't have already installed myHack then copy from folder "Install_E6320" myHack-3.3.1 to your desktop and launch myHack and follow the steps
  • Plug your USB Drive into your computer, and start myHack.
  • Enter your Mac OS X password when the app begins, and setup process will begin.
  • When myHack prompts you, select “Create OS X Installer” and Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk”.
  • Select your USB Drive as the installation destination (mine is named “E6320”).
  • myHack will ask you for the location of your copy of OS X 10.9 Mavericks. It’s usually faster to “Browse Manually” for the Mavericks installation app.
  • myHack will begin to set up your installer USB Drive. Click “Ok” when myHack asks to erase your USB Drive, so that it can begin the setup process.
  • From here, the setup process is pretty automatic. myHack will erase your USB Drive, copy the contents of the Mavericks installer app onto it, and then modify those contents to be bootable on a PC.
  • Near the end of the process, myHack will ask you whether you want to apply the MBR patch to the USB Drive.
  • Click “Yes” if you plan on installing Mac OS X on a hard drive where windows is already installed or “No” if you wanna installing Mac OS X on the entire hard drive.
  • This entire process should take about 10 – 15 minute, though it may take up an hour if your USB Drive is slow.
6. Adding the Extra folder to your USB drive

Now, we need to put the Extra directory for the E6320 on the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC.

  • Start myHack, Enter your Mac OS X password when the app begins.
  • When myHack prompts you, select “Install Extra”.
  • myHack will ask you “Select target volume to run myHack on…”, choose your “myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk” and choose “Ok”.
  • myHack will prompt you “Do you want to use the generic Extra that comes with myHack or specify tour own?” choose “Use My Own” and press “Ok”.
  • Browse to your early extracted “Install_E6320 – Extra” folder on your desktop and choose “Open”.
  • myHack will copy the Extra folder to your “myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk”.
  • When finished you will see the message "myHack Finished" press ok and Quit to close myHack.
  • Eject all mounted drives (this is not necessary)
  • Eject your USB Drive
  • 10. Done !
7. Bios Settings Dell Latitude E6320

Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OSX Mavericks.

  • Start your Dell Latitude and press F2 to get into the Bios.
  • In the main screen click on "Load Defaults", the bios will be reset to default settings.
  • Go to General - Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting.
  • Go then to System Configuration - SATA Operation and choose on the right for AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing OSX Mavericks.
8. Installing OSX Mavericks from your USB drive

Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install OSX Mavericks onto the partition or Hard Drive.

  • Boot from your USB drive.
  • During boot you will see the message “Eread Bios error” ignore it the USB Drive goes further to boot to the OS X Mavericks Installer.
  • Once you get into the installer (assuming your computer didn’t freeze, restart itself, or get a kernel panic), choose your partition or Hard Disk to install OSX Mavericks to.
  • NOTE : when you install it on a partition skip step 5 - 10 see Chapter 4.

    (If you install Mavericks on the entire Hard disk follow the steps below )

  • In the installer open up Disk Utility.
  • Click on your Hard Drive in the left sidebar.
  • Click on the Erase tab in the middle.
  • Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)” as the format, and give your drive a label (like “MAVERICKS”).
  • Click on the Erase… button.
  • Done close Disk Utility and go further with the installation process.
  • Choose your HDD or Partition to install Mavericks to.
  • The installation process will take about 23 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD.
  • myHack will then ask to remove a couple of unnecessary kext files—click “Yes” for all of them.
  • myHack will also prompt you to install an “Extra” folder.
  • Choose the second option, which lets you install your “Extra” folder.
  • Select the “Extra” folder from your USB Drive, and wait for the installer to finish.
  • When finished remove your USB Drive and boot to your new OSX Mavericks.
9. Booting OSX Mavericks!

Now that everything is finally prepared, you can go ahead and boot into OSX Mavericks.

  • Thanks to myHack, you should be able to boot to OS X Mavericks from your laptop’s hard drive immediately.
  • You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for OSX Mavericks. Go through that process to setup OSX Mavericks.
  • Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet".
  • The installation process will take about 3 minutes.
  • Done!.
10. Adjust some settings in OS X 10.9
  • Once in 10.9 go to finder – preferences –General and choose in show these items on the desktop for

    - Hard Disk

    - External Disk

    - CD

  • Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock on the left corner and type your password
  • Choose by “Allow applications downloaded from: for “Anywhere – Allow from anywhere
  • Close system preferences.
11. Install Wlan driver for the TL-WN725N

The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK.

The software is straight forward and installs without problems, the only thing is that after login the wireless

app starts up and you have must close it every time, therefore I have made a script to launch the program

after login and close it after 5 seconds.

  • For installing the driver go to the folder “Install_E6320 – Wlan_TP-LINK”.
  • Launch the Installer.pkg and install the software, after install you will get the message to restart.
  • Choose restart to restart you laptop.
  • After restart the software will start the Wireless App.
  • Choose you desired network and add it to your profile.
  • Now we can install the login script.
  • Go to “System Preferences – Users & Groups”, go to tab Login Items.
  • Choose the + sign and browse to the folder “Install_E6320” and choose “Wireless App2”.
  • Close System Preferences.
12. Install Brightness Fix

You can install the brightness fix for the E6320 so that your laptop boots with the desired brightness

  • Go to your Install_E6320 folder on your desktop and copy the folder “BrightnessFix_v1.1” to your desktop.
  • You can adjust your brightness settings before install, open the folder “BrightnessFix_v1.1” you will se a file called “brightnessFix.plist” open it with textedit and you will see a value at <String> 0,5.
  • You can adjust the setting from 0,0 till 1,0, when you have set your value save the file ( I have set the value to 0,8).
  • Run the installer to install the brightness fix, after installing reboot your laptop to see it works.
13. Enable find my Mac in iCloud

To make full advantage of you Hackintosh you can enable Find My Mac in iCloud.

(doesn’t work with TP-LINK Wireless lan Nano adaptor)

  • Download the Rocvery HD Updater for Mavrick 10.9 from Mega to your desktop.
  • Open “Recovery_HD_Updater_10.9_13A603”.
  • Run RecoveryHDUpdater.command, you will get a message that it will open a script choose “Open” , and a new window will be opening.
  • Read the text in the window “ Please drag in DESTINATION disk for Recovery HD partition and press Enter:”
  • Drag you HDD in the window, enter your Mac OS X password and the script will running, you will see a lot of text fly by after installing you will see the tex “ Process completed” close terminal and reboot.
  • 6. After login you can enable “Find My Mac” in “System Preferences – iCloud”.
14. Install VoodooHDA Prefpane

You can install the VoodooHDA Prefpane for adjust your sound settings.

  • Go to folder “Install_E6320 and run program VoodooHDA.prefpane.
  • You will be ask to install it for a single user or for everyone, choose what you want.
  • After install you will see in “System Preferences” a icon VoodooHDA.
  • Now you can adjust your volume settings
15. Update to 10.9.2

If your "Mac OS X Install App" contains already the newest Mavericks Version you don't have to update the system and you can skip this step.

To check your current version go to "About this Mac".

  • 1. Don't update thru Software Update download the combo update here Download from the apple site.
  • 2. Run the 10.9.2 combo update walk thru the steps.
  • 3. After installation there will be a message saying to restart your system, CHOOSE RESTART.
  • 4. During reboot the update will be installing this take about 10 minutes.
  • 5. After the reboot check “About this Mac” you will see version “10.9.2”
16. Finished!

You’ve successfully installed OSX Mavericks onto your Dell Latitude E6320.

I made also a Dell E6320 Hackintosh. i5 2.5GHz 8Go Bios A15. Mavericks 10.9.2. (installed in 10.9.0 when was available and updated).

Slighly different. No special difficuty to install except that you should use an AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext rollback to 10.8.1 or earlier and usual additionnal kexts (FakeSMC.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext).

I replaced the Wifi internal card by Dell DW1510 (broadcom), it works as Airport Extreme (8 €). Easy to do, need only to unscrew the back to unplug old and plug new one.

I am using VoodooPS2Controller.kext a fork from RehabMan one for Alps. Stick working and 2 fingers gestures on the trackpad. Apple Prefpane working.

I am using DSDT, SSDT, VoodooAudio, VoodooSDHC, AppleIntel1000e (network) and a modified AppleSmartBatteryManager found on OsxAttitude.

All is working including Speedstep, Audio, Battery level (slow to update), SD reader and Sleep. Bluetooth devices are not waking up the laptop and are tacking 30s-60s before working again (Keyboard, USB mouse ok).

If someone need help or the kext used...

After passing two quizzes, I can reply that I followed the guide here: http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/6503-dell-latitude-e6320-with-intel-i5-2520m-hd3000-graphics-mavericks/ which are the differences with the one in this forum?

 

From this guide I got the WIFI part *but* the tplink dongle freezes my system if it is inserted in USB/only port. I've to insert into usb/esata port to have it reliable working.

 

THANKS

Sorry to bump this one up, any updates on Yosemite on this notebook?

 

I'm starting my tertiary education in 2 months and Hackintosh would be very useful (and cool to show off) :P

 

Thanks again :D

Does the onboard wifi work with yosemite?

Obviously not. No Mac has a card with an Intel chipset. You need to replace it.

I replaced the Wifi internal card by Dell DW1510 (Broadcom), it works as Airport Extreme (8 € on ebay).

Easy to do, need only to unscrew the back to unplug old and plug new one.

I found the wifi card on a chinese ebay-like site, only $6!

 

So apparently MyHack does not have an option for yosemite, so I can't do that, I downloaded "OS X Base Syetem.dmg" from "somewhere" and restored it to my drive. 

 

I opened Clover and there were many options, which options do I choose?

No sure to have what you are searching for. This topic is relatively out of date.

I still have Dell E6320 but I just moved to 10.13 (High Sierra) with Clover.

      This thread for installing Catalina on the Dell Latitude E6410 WITH NVIDIA GRAPHICS (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m) will help you install a fresh installation of Catalina on your Dell Latitude E6410, it will help you upgrade from 10.15.2 to 10.15.x (if you originally installed Catalina from this thread) and it will also help you upgrade from Mojave 10.14.6 if you have already installed Mojave by following the instructions here.  The instructions in this first post assume that you are installing Catalina in an APFS container.  If you are curious about the evolution of this solution and how sleep/wake was solved, review the Mojave installation thread.
       
      Important: This Thread is NOT intended to help you install macOS on a Latitude E6410 with Intel HD Graphics (without Nvidia graphics).  The DSDT attached to this first post (in E6410-Catalina.zip) is VERY SPECIFIC to the Nvidia graphics implementation and has not been edited for HD Graphics - there are elements required for HD Graphics that are missing from the attached DSDT and there are DSDT mods that have not been tested with HD Graphics.  Also, the kexts attached to this first post are specific to a Broadcom Wi-Fi card which must replace the original Intel Wi-Fi card.
       
      This first post will be modified to reflect lessons learned and to reflect the most current working state of my Latitude E6410 (with NVidia 3100m discrete graphics) running Catalina.  Issues, observations and performance tips are recorded toward the bottom of this first post.  My recommended CLOVER configuration is specified toward the bottom of this first post.
       
      *** If you want help with your installation, please post your issue along with problem reporting files generated using @black.dragon74's problem reporting tool.  Google 'GENERATE PROPER PROBLEM REPORTING FILES black.dragon74' to find it. ***.  If Catalina's Read-Only protections block your installation of black.dragon74's gen_debug script, please copy the attached gen_debug script to your Desktop, change script properties with the terminal command 'chmod a+x ~/Desktop/gen_debug' and run the script from your Desktop.
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (replaced original Wi-Fi card) BIOS (version A17) configured as follows (leave default unless listed here): Boot Sequence: USB, Internal HDD, CD/DVD, Modular Bay HDD; Boot List Option: Legacy; Integrated NIC:Enabled; Parallel Port: Disabled; Serial Port: Disabled; SATA Operation: AHCI; Misc Devices: Enable Modular Bay, Camera, External USB, Microphone, Media Card and 1394; Latitude ON Reader: Disabled; Keyboard Illumination: Auto ALS and Input; Ambient Light Sensor: Enabled; OROM Keyboard Access: Disable; TPM Security: Disable; Computrace:Deactivate; CPU XD Support: Enable; Performance: Enable all options; Power Management: Disable Wake on AC, Disable Wake on LAN/WAN, Express Charge: Standard, Charge Behavior: Enabled; Keypad: Fn Key Only; Mouse/Touchpad: Touchpad/PS-2 Mouse; USB Emulation: Enable Legacy; Fn Key Emulation: Disabled; Fastboot: Thorough; Virtualization: Enable Intel Virtualization, Disable VT for Direct I/O, Disable Trusted Execution; Wireless Switch: Bluetooth and WLAN; Wireless Device Enable: Bluetooth and WLAN;   
      Versions of the software used in this installation are listed below the installation steps.  EFI and kexts for Catalina are attached to this first post in E6410-Catalina.zip.  CLOVER configuration is specified below the installation steps.  You MUST BE LOGGED-IN to download attachments from this forum.
       
      Wi-Fi connection to an Access Point is delayed when using AppleALC for sound.  Do not use Apple ALC.  Use VoodooHDA pkg 2.9.2 v15 for sound.
       
      Steps to install Catalina on a Dell Latitude E6410 (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m)
       
      If you want to upgrade to 10.15.6, see instructions at this post.

      Follow instructions below for 10.15.2 and 10.15.3.
       
      Make sure that your system matches my system description above (including BIOS version, Wi-Fi card, BIOS settings) If performing an upgrade from Mojave or a previous version of Catalina, backup your Mojave or Catalina partition! (Carbon Copy or similar) Download Catalina Installer Download DosDude Catalina Patcher Use DosDude Patcher to create Catalina USB Installer Delete LegacyUSBInjector.kext (we're using @RehabMan's USBInjectAll.kext with custom SSDT) and delete SIPManager.kext (CLOVER is managing SIP) from Catalina USB Installer's /Library/Extensions folder Copy all but the FakeSMC sensor kexts in E6410-Catalina.zip (attached) LE folder to the Catalina USB Installer /Library/Extensions (copy all kexts (including FakeSMC.kext) but not the FakeSMC sensor kexts) Install CLOVER Bootloader (Legacy) on USB Installer using the EFI in the E6410-Catalina.zip (attached).  Use the CLOVER configuration specified below.  Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Reset your Latitude E6410 NVRAM by doing the following (this may be important if you're making changes to your existing EFI and won't hurt anything if you're not making any changes) turn-off your laptop remove A/C power and main battery press and hold the power button for 30 seconds restore A/C power and battery Boot your Latitude E6410 from the Catalina USB Installer that you created in steps 5-8. Select "Reinstall macOS" (note that I have existing installations of Mojave and High Sierra on my Latitude E6410, so it's possible that this menu item changes to "Install macOS" if you don't have any previous macOS installations). Select your Catalina destination partition (which will be your Mojave or previous Catalina partition if you are upgrading) After the Catalina Installer reboots the first time, boot from the "macOS Installer" partition on the disk that you selected as your Catalina destination (not the macOS installer on the USB) After the Catalina Installer reboots the second time, boot the Catalina macOS Installer on the USB Select the Post Install Patcher utility Select only the following Post Install Patches (no other patches / options) Install Patch Updater Legacy Video After the Post Install Patcher reboots,  boot from the newly installed (or upgraded) Catalina partition and complete the macOS configuration Remove these kexts (if they exist) from /Library/Extensions: LegacyUSBInjector.kext, LegacyUSBVideoSupport.kext and SIPManager.kext If you are performing a fresh installation of Catalina: Install CLOVER (LEGACY - NOT UEFI) on your boot disk and configure EFI using files in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip.  Use the CLOVER configuration below.  Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Install all kexts in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip LE folder to your /Library/Extensions folder. Copy HWMonitor from the application folder in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip to your Applications folder. Install VoodooHDA (I installed using the Classic method) Skip to Step 21 If you are upgrading from a previous version of Catalina using the instructions from this thread or from Mojave that you installed using the instructions here: Replace 3rd-party kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other with those in the attached EFI folder.   Replace EFI/Clover config.plist with the attached config.plist (Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values) Replace EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched with the files in the attached EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched Replace 3rd-party kexts in /Library/Extensions with those in the attached LE folder Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions Re-install VoodooHDA if necessary (I installed using the Classic method for Catalina) Ensure PROPER kext installation: If you're manually installing kexts in /Library/Extensions, make sure that you execute the following (in terminal) cd /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel *.kext sudo chmod -R 755 *.kext sudo kextcache -i / After you execute 'sudo kextcache -i /' you should observe that ALL kexts are allowed.  If not, your kext directory attributes are probably incorrect.  Repeat kext installation and try again. Reboot from your new/upgraded Catalina partition Welcome to macOS Catalina! Change the keyboard type to ISO (System Preferences > Keyboard > Change Keyboard Type) Swap the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) Set hibernatemode: In terminal, execute sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage sudo touch /var/vm/sleepimage sudo chflags schg /var/vm/sleepimage

      Known Issues and Their Solutions
      (Not yet included in E6410-Catalina.zip archive attached to Post #1) There is a new version (2.0.7) of AirportBrcmFixup.kext here.  I hadn't noticed any issues with version 2.0.6, so this updated kext will be included in a future update to the E6410-Catalina.zip archive attached to this first post. (Solved - no further work required) Clover r5118 requires the config.plist key <key>NoDefaultProperties</key><false> to permit macOS to boot with Clover's "Inject Nvidia" = True.  See details here.  config.plist in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip archive includes this change. (Solved - no further work required) EFICheck is loaded.  Solution is to install EFICheckDisabler.kext which you can get here.  EFICheck.kext is included in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip archive. (Solved - no further work required) Some users experience display issues.  The solution is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT.  Use the attached DSDT.  Removal of PNLF will disable sleep on lid closure.  Device (PNLF) can be added without modifying the DSDT by enabling the Clover PNLF ACPI patch.  The attached Clover config.plist enables the PNLF DSDT patch.  Disable the Clover PNLF patch if you experience display issues. (Solved - no further work required) USB sleep/wake power IORegistry keys are not injected (not included in Mojave's or Catalina's IOUSBHostFamily.kext).  Solution is to added SSDT-USBX.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.  The attached SSDT-USBX.aml includes USB sleep/wake properties for MacBookPro6,2 from High Sierra 10.13.6 IOUSBHostFamily.kext. (No solution yet) Brightness slider does not work in System Preferences > Displays.  Brightness is easily controlled with Dell brightness keys.  There is some work on this later in this thread, but I will not be solving this as I'm content with the Dell brightness keys (and Ambient Light Sensor works to auto-adjust brightness). (No intention to solve) Display Settings in System Preferences are "garbled" when bright slider is visible.  This is a known issue with the legacy graphics patch and does not affect laptop operation. I continue to refine the DSDT and CLOVER config.plist to optimize my Latitude E6410 for multi-booting between various macOS versions (High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina at the time of this writing). If you upgrade your Latitude E6410 EFI using my attached EFI, you may find that your Latitude E6410 is stuck in a boot-loop that ends in a white screen and reboots.  Clear your system by doing the following: turn off your laptop, remove A/C power, remove the main battery, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, restore A/C power and battery, boot normally.  I have only found this to be necessary (very rarely) after making an EFI change, but you may find it helpful if making kext changes in /Library/Extensions as well. (Solved - no further work required) Brcm firmware does not update when using BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext in /Library/Extensions.  Solution is to install BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext in E/C/k/O with Clover "Inject Kexts" = YES. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop does not sleep when closing lid.  Solution appears to be a combination of adding Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) and adding Device (PNLF) in the DSDT. I am using the same EFI for High Sierra 10.13.6, Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina 10.15.3 and it works in all three macOSes. (No solution yet) No SD Card Slot (had to remove VoodooSDHC.kext) - I read somewhere that there is a solution that does not require any kexts (just a DSDT edit).  Haven't yet implemented this fix. (Not a problem that needs to be solved - leaving for historical purposes.  I am running Catalina without this.) - IOHWControl does not load under GFX0 (as observed in IORegistryExplorer).  Solution (if it needs to be solved) is to install AppleHWSensor.kext from a DosDude-patched Mojave /S/L/E in Catalina's /L/E.  Copy and install your own or use the kext attached to this post. (Solved - no further work required) Wi-Fi connection is delayed until a minute or so after boot - Use VoodooHDA and NOT AppleALC (Solved - no further work required) External USB ports do not work after waking from sleep (S3) - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Boot and shut-down time of Catalina is slower than Mojave - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Wi-Fi is not immediately available at OS startup - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop freezes on wake - Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions  
      Tips for Improved Performance (on this and other older systems)
      System Preferences > Spotlight > Search Results: Uncheck all options System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy: Add all Volumes System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce motion" System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce transparency"  
      Other tips
      If your fan is always running and temps are good, try pressing Fn + z (I haven't noticed this issue for a while since I completed DSDT edits for Mojave, but keeping this here for historical purposes)  
      CLOVER Installation: Use these configuration options (These configuration options configure Clover for LEGACY BIOS - NOT UEFI)
      Install Clover in the ESP Boot Sectors Install boot0af in MBR Clover for BIOS (LEGACY - NOT UEFI) booting Clover EFI 64-bits SATA BIOS Drivers, 64-bit Recommended drivers FSInject File System drivers ApfsDriverLoader Install RC scripts on target volume Themes Choose your desired theme Install Clover Preference Pane After clicking "Continue", if prompted with "This Clover package is incompatible with this version of macOS," install anyway  
      After CLOVER installation is complete Copy the following from the attached E6410-Catalina.zip ACPI patched contents config.plist (change XX-MASKED-XX values to your own) kexts/Other (remove all other kext folders) Remove christmas and new year folders from themes (if present)

      Thanks to those who contributed to my Mojave solution and to the DosDude team (for the incredible macOS patchers), I think this Catalina installation was the easiest macOS installation that I have experienced (so far).  Many thanks to @Slice and his team for the incredible work on CLOVER and for continuing to support old legacy systems like this.  Also, thanks to @Mieze and @headkaze and others I'm sure for maintaining the Brcm kexts.  And finally, I still prefer to manually apply patches to the DSDTs in my systems.  CLOVER offers extensive patching functionality, but I'm old-school and like to have an error-free, fully-patched DSDT with a simple CLOVER config.plist.  I think that this manual DSDT patching approach (which required an extensive review and debugging of the original unpatched DSDT in this thread) is the reason that this Latitude E6410 is such a perfect MacBookPro6,2.  Thank you @RehabMan for being a great teacher and for always insisting on problem reporting files .

      My  PC is  a Dell Optiplex 790
      I am installing  Catalina then hopefully upgrading to Big Sur
      Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz (sandy bridge?)
      16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz
      NVIDIA GeForce GT 730
      I have been following the guide at https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/installer-guide/mac-install.html
      Currently I’m on step “Gathering files” I’m not to sure which SSDTs I should use for my system to work properly.
       
      Also this will be dual booting with Windows 10 Pro
    • By tlefko
      Version Info
      This build is compatible up to Big Sur Beta
      Now Compatible with macOS 11 Please leave feedback with issues or w/o Comitted to Updating up to OS 11 MULTITOUCH TOUCHSCREEN SUPPORT Latest Release Notes
      Fixed Bluetooth and Wifi Stability Issues Improved Preformance and Power Managements Can Provide Files for Display Overrides Additional Patches for 3K Display updated for 15.4 rev 1 if using unsupported wifi card disable it in bios use config.plist not HD520 Perfect Sleep/Wake for 1080P Model no-touch, still bugs for 3K Exact same functionality as Catalina Notes
      Never tested USB C except for charging, works great USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue) 4K model has minor sleep wake issues occasionally, 1080P is fully functional 4K sleep has been heavily improved however and glitches are rare, fixed by reopening lid POST
      run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 If on 3K disable sleep completely for maximum stability If no mouse, install all voodoo kexts using Kext Utility Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable
      Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other. BIOS Setup
      Set all SATA operation as AHCI Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States Enable UEFI Booting INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)
      Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup. To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete. You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw Boot Entry Setup
      Boot into the BIOS of the computer, then navigate to the Boot setup (or entries (not sure what it is called exactly, but it will be a list of the options your computer selects to boot) Click add new, and make sure the USB isn't plugged in. Select the only option that is avaiable, and in FS0 navigate to Boot/BOOTx64. Add this as an entry, then select this as whatever priority you would like. Messages and Facetime
      Gnerate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of external recourses, or you can contact me for support. Headphones and Audio
      All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio To resolve headphones static issue (wired) install combojack Finished!

      *** I have started another thread for installing Catalina on the Dell Latitude E6410.  If you were thinking of installing Mojave, but would prefer to skip right to Catalina, click here. ***
       
      *** I am no longer maintaining the installation files in this first post.  Refer to my Catalina thread for the latest guidelines / files for installing macOS on this Latitude E6410 with Nvidia graphics ***
       
      I was inspired by @duduclx post here for installing El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6410, so I decided to install Mojave 10.14.5 and subsequently 10.14.6.  Everything works perfectly (including sleep).  I'm starting this thread hoping to help others install Mojave on their E6410s.  A brief installation guide is provided later in this first post.  The interested reader is encouraged to read the other posts in this thread to see how this solution evolved and to learn additional tips/details not provided in this first post (including dual-booting with macOS and Windows).
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) MacOS: Mojave 10.14.6 (APFS) (Patched with DosDude Mojave Patcher 1.3.3) MacModel: MacBookPro 6,2 (LPCB._DSM.Name "pci8086,3b09") Kexts: Lilu 1.3.6, VoodooHDA 2.9.2, AirportBrcmFixup 2.0.0, IntelMausiEthernet 2.4.1d1, ACPIBatteryManager 1.90.1, BrcmPatchRam2.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, VoodooPS2Controller (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad" version - release 6 developed by @Dr. Hurt and compiled by @bronxteck), not the original version), USBInjectAll (with custom SSDT-UIAC), VoodooSDHC.kext (configured as shown here). Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (with AirportBrcmFixup.kext) CLOVER (Legacy): R4961  
      Configuration items that may be different from what you have seen in other E6410 configurations
      Addition of _OFF and _ON methods to _PTS and _WAK methods respectively (to control discrete graphics in order to enable sleep/wake) LPCB._DSM patched with device-id "3b09" AND "name", "pci8086,3b09" for native Nehalem power management with MacBookPro 6,2 ECDV renamed to EC so that AppleBusPowerController loads AGP.VID._DSM patched with device-id "0a29" so that AppleGraphicsPowerManagement loads No CLOVER Generate P or Generate C States (with the correct LPCB._DSM and MacBookPro 6,2, these CLOVER options are unnecessary for this architecture and only limit max multiplier and reduce number of P states) DSDT patched to include HDAU device (device-id 0x0be3)  
      What is NOT working:
      Display brightness can be controlled with keyboard keys, but cannot be controlled with slider in Display settings. Graphics Power Management - AGPM loads (because 10de,0a29 device is injected), but there's no evidence that 3100m frequency and voltage is changing.
        What is NOT tested:
      Smartcard Reader eSata (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Firewire Port (it does appear in the Network settings, just haven't tried it) Microphone Jack PC Card Slot (I have this disabled in my BIOS)  
      What IS working:
      SLEEP IS WORKING! Everything else not mentioned above.   Speedstep/CPUPowerManagement is perfect, system temps are low, CPU multiplier operates as expected, battery life is long Shutdown is fast Display/graphics acceleration is perfect (thanks to DosDude's Mojave patcher) Brightness (adjusted with brightness keys on keyboard) works perfectly Battery Manager works (battery status is displayed in menu bar) simply by installing ACPIBatterManager.kext. Wi-Fi (after changing to Broadcom BCM94352HMB and installing AirportBrcmFixup.kext) Audio (volume adjustable, volume indicator appears in menu bar).  Switched to VoodooHDA from AppleALC after AppleALC caused slow boot due to "IOHDACodecFunction timeout." Ethernet port (with IntelMausiEthernet.kext) Broadcom BCM20702A0 Bluetooth (with BrcmPatchRam2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext) Optical Drive External VGA (with corrected NVCAP.  Need NVCAP 04000000 00000100 0E000000 00000007 00000000 (credit: here) for working external VGA display. Headphone jack Display Port (tested using DP > HDMI adapter) Camera SD Card Reader  
      Known issues and their solutions (These issues have all been resolved, with the solutions incorporated into the attached config files.  The issues are listed here for historical purposes and no further work is needed unless stated otherwise).
      (Solution to this issue is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT): Some users experience display issues.  Solution is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT.  The attached DSDT currently still includes Device (PNLF), so you will need to edit the DSDT to remove PNLF. USB sleep/wake power IORegistry keys are no longer provided in IOUSBHostFamily.kext after High Sierra 10.13.6.  Solution is to added SSDT-USBX.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.  The attached SSDT-USBX.aml includes USB sleep/wake properties for MacBookPro6,2 from High Sierra 10.13.6 IOUSBHostFamily.kext. Laptop does not sleep on lid close.  Solution is to add Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) in the DSDT.  This is solved in the attached DSDT. Leaving this for historical purposes, but the CLOVER USBFix is no longer necessary after finding that I had incorrectly applied the DSDT _DSM patch for Device (EHC1).  The CLOVER USBFix is not needed after fixing the DSDT..  AAPL,clock-id and device_type do not appear in IORegistry for EHC1.  Solution is to use CLOVER on-the-fly patching/fixing/renaming for EHC1 and EHC2.  Thank you, @feartech, for this tip. ALPS trackpad performance is not good with the "standard" VoodooPS2Controller.kext that I initially used.  Switching to the "Refined ALPS TouchPad driver" is a big improvement.  I've implemented and tested this on my system.  The ALPS version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext mixes up a few keys.  Need to switch the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) and change keyboard type to ISO European. This configuration (captured in the attached config files) uses an injected device-id (10de,0a29) for NVidia 3100m to get AGPM to load.  While I haven't observed any performance differences, a better approach may be to inject AGPM properties for device 10de,0a6c (the actual device-id for the 3100m).  This AGPM method is discussed later in this thread.  I have briefly tested this "FakeSMC.kext method" for injecting AGPM attributes without any noticeable changes in laptop/graphics behavior. IOHWControl is not loaded under AGPM (Should be AGP > VID > NVDA,Display-A@0 > NVDATesla > AGPM > gpu-control > IOHWControl as viewed in IORegistryExplorer).  It is loaded on a real MacBookPro6,2 running Mojave and is loaded on this Dell Latitude E6410 running High Sierra.  If I "Inject NVidia" via CLOVER, IOHWControl loads properly. The Dell Latitude DSDT (BIOS A17) has a bug in Method (GNOT).  In the method, the expression  If (LOr (LGreater (OSYS, 0x07D0), LLess (OSYS, 0x07D6))) always evaluates to TRUE, so the patched DSDT has no dependency on the value of OSYS.  I suspect that LOr should be replaced with LAnd, so that this expression is TRUE for variants of Windows 2001 and False for any other OS.  While this may have no affect on MacOS, it makes one wonder how such an obvious bug made it through Dell QA and is still present in BIOS A17.  Also makes one wonder whether the sleep problem (which no one has solved) was fixed in Windows to address another DSDT bug. The assigned value of ACOS and OSYS in the DSDT are conditional on the operating system.  There is no condition for "Darwin."  The solution is to add a condition for "Darwin" (making it equivalent to one of the defined operating systems (e.g. Linux, Win7, etc).  The attached config hard-codes ACOS and OSYS values equivalent to those for Linux.  Another way to handle this (different from the method employed in the attached config files) might be to override _OSI with XOSI (defined in a custom SSDT). The portType of the Internal Bluetooth device is portType=0 which, according to Rehabman's comments in SSDT-UIAC-All.dsl, is an external USB 2 port.  This should be an internal USB port (portType=2).  I learned through trial and error that the HUB1 and HUB2 definitions in Rehabman's SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl apply to the ports on the EHCx USB hubs.  The solution is to include the HUB1 definition in SSDT-UIAC.dsl and change portType to 2 for HP15.  This change doesn't appear to affect/fix sleep, but it may prevent instant wake if we get sleep working. There are minor differences between a real MacBookPro6,2 IORegistry dump and this HackBookPro6,2 IORegistry dump that can be resolved with simple DSDT edits.  I am now running with these changes, but haven't found these changes to make any difference in operational behavior.
      Rename Device (AC) -> Device (ADP1) Remove UID from Device (HPET) Add compatible ID "PNP0C01" to Device (HPET) Change ADP1:_STA from 0x0F to 0xFFFFFFFF Enable Ambient Light Sensor and renamed to Device (ALS0) from Device (ALS) Add compatible ID "smc-als" to ALS0 Rename LID -> LID0 Change "name" definitions to Buffers in _DSM methods Rename Device (PBTN) to PWRB Rename Device (SBTN) to SLPB Sleep / Wake does not work with the basic DSDT edits.  I have discovered that Sleep / Wake can be made to work by adding discrete graphics _OFF and _ON methods to _PTS and _WAK methods respectively (borrowed the concept and code from a working E6430 DSDT: Credit here: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/9248-working-sleep-on-intel-hd-and-nvidia-nvs-on-dell-latitude-e6430-optimus-enabled-or-disabled/page/6/. The Clover boot arg should be changed to "darkwake=0" for reasons explained by @holyfield in this thread.  Leaving this for historical purposes: LCD screen is blank when waking laptop by opening lid (screen is not blank when waking with power button).  Solution is to add darkwake=8 to CLOVER boot args.  Thank you @Hervé for this tip.  
      Brief Installation Guide:
      Configure BIOS (version A17) as follows (leave default unless listed here): Boot Sequence: USB, Internal HDD, CD/DVD, Modular Bay HDD; Boot List Option: Legacy; Integrated NIC: Enabled; Parallel Port: Disabled; Serial Port: Disabled; SATA Operation: AHCI; Misc Devices: Enable Modular Bay, Camera, External USB, Microphone, Media Card and 1394; Latitude ON Reader: Disabled; Keyboard Illumination: Auto ALS and Input; Ambient Light Sensor: Enabled; OROM Keyboard Access: Disable; TPM Security: Disable; Computrace: Deactivate; CPU XD Support: Enable; Performance: Enable all options; Power Management: Disable Wake on AC, Disable Wake on LAN/WAN, Express Charge: Standard, Charge Behavior: Enabled; Keypad: Fn Key Only; Mouse/Touchpad: Touchpad/PS-2 Mouse; USB Emulation: Enable Legacy; Fn Key Emulation: Disabled; Fastboot: Thorough; Virtualization: Enable Intel Virtualization, Disable VT for Direct I/O, Disable Trusted Execution; Wireless Switch: Bluetooth and WLAN; Wireless Device Enable: Bluetooth and WLAN;  Create your MacOS installer USB (Use DosDude's Mojave Patcher for Mojave) (start with High Sierra and not Mojave if you're new to hackintosh). Install CLOVER (Legacy) on installer USB using attached EFI as your guide for patched ACPI, kexts and config.plist Install MacOS to your SSD.  When you run DosDude's Mojave Patcher, DO NOT install LegacyUSBInjector.kext - you're going to use Rehabman's USBInjectAll.kext.  Also, do not install the DosDude SIP kext (you're using CLOVER to manage SIP). Install the following kexts in /Library/Extensions:  ACPIBatteryManager.kext, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakeSMC.kext, FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext, FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, Lilu.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad driver," not the original), VoodooSDHC.kext (configured as shown here). Switch Command and Option keys to compensate for Refined ALPS driver issue (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys).  Also change keyboard type to ISO European to fix the [ ` ~ ] key (to the left of the "1" (one) key. Install VoodooHDA Install HWMonitor application  
      Tips for Improved Performance (on this and other older systems)
      System Preferences > Spotlight > Search Results: Uncheck all options System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy: Add all Volumes System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce motion" System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce transparency"  
      Other tips
      If your fan is always running and temps are good, try pressing Fn + z After applying Mojave updates, HWMonitor may not display discrete graphics attributes.  On systems with multiple displays, a second (or third display) may not be active after applying the Mojave update.  The solution to this is to run "sudo kextcache -i /" (in a terminal window) and reboot.  This will usually fix the issue.  If the issue is not fixed, run DosDude's Post Install Utility, apply the Legacy Graphics Patch, reboot and then run "sudo kextcache -i /" if necessary.

      In addition to those mentioned in this first post and in subsequent posts in this thread, much of this solution for the Latitude E6410 was made possible by the numerous contributions of @RehabMan.  I hope he's doing well, wherever he is.  Hopefully he has long since forgotten what a PIA I was (and still am) as I was (and still am) learning hackOS.
