Run OSX Yosemite on a Dell Optiplex 780
This tutorial will describe the steps to install Yosemite on a Dell Optiplex 780 (this will also works on a 760).
The installation goes to the latest version of 10.10, 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 Yosemite.

A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra for using parts of their tutorial.

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 Optiplex 780 – This is necessary to install OSX Yosemite 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 Yosemite 10.10 GM – If you don’t have a App Store Account, then create one to download OS X Yosemite.
  • 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 10.10 to – For me, I used a 500GB partition to install 10.10 to.
  • An PCI Express Video Card – For use with QE and CI Highly recommended. I use a Ati Radeon HD5450 1GB but 512MB or 2GB also works.
  • CLOVER_780.zipThis ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive and hackintosh properly prepared.

Note: number 7 contains the files for clover, you can copy the entire directory to the EFI Partition:

3. My Specs
My installation was successfully done on an Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop computer with the following specs.
NOTE: A PCI video card is recommended to use the full potential of OSX Yosemite because the on board video card doesn't support QE/CI.

  • Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz
  • 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
  • Western Digital 500GB HDD
  • ATI RADEON HD5450 1GB
  • Intel WG82567LM onboard network
  • Bluetooth USB Cambridge silicon radio (works OOB)
  • ADI 1984A HDA audio onboard
  • HP W2207h Monitor 1680×1050 display
  • Apple Magic Trackpad
  • Apple Magic Mouse
  • Apple Wireless Keyboard US

4. Download OS X Yosemite

  • Open Mac App Srore.
  • Login with your Apple ID.
  • Download OS X Yosemite.
  • Done!

The Application INSTALL OS X YOSEMITE will appear in /Applications
5. Prepare Bootable USB Drive
This step extracts the OS X Installer contents, then installs clover bootloader to the USB stick.
Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive:

  • Right click on the installer and choose show package contents
  • Navigate to Contents/Shared Support and double click on the InstallESD.dmg, the .dmg should now mount and appear on your desktop.
  • Open Terminal and type the following command: open /Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.dmg.
  • Now, open disk utility and restore your USB drive, NOT the drive, but the volume contained on the drive with the mounted "BaseSystem" NOT the .dmg.
  • Rename your USB drive to Yosemite. (not the dmg) You can tell which drive is the USB from the size.
  • Rename your USB drive to Yosemite. (not the dmg) You can tell which drive is the USB from the size.
    - cp /Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/Yosemite/
    - cp -a /Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/Yosemite/
    - rm /Volumes/Yosemite/System/Installation/Packages

  • Move all the files in the unzipped /Clover folder to /EFI/EFI/Clover/, Make sure to choose to MERGE these folders or overwrite them

6. Install OS X Yosemite.
This part is the most time consuming. Using a USB 4G flash drive will help things out quite a bit.

  • Shut Down.
  • Enter Bios via tapping F2 during boot.
  • Change SATA Operation to AHCI (Leave the Booting mode on Legacy! UEFI is not support/does not work.)
  • Click Save and reboot
  • Press the F12 key to choose boot device, select USB Drive
  • When Clover boot screen is visible, choose Boot "Mac OS X from Yosemite".
  • The system will then boot into OS X Installer.
  • For a new installation of OS X, you MUST erase and format the destination drive according to the following steps before continuing. If you are upgrading from Lion, Mountain Lion or Mavericks and you want to keep your files and apps, skip steps a-j.
    a. Choose Disk Utility.
    b. Highlight your target hard drive for the Yosemite installation in left column.
    c. Click Partition tab.
    d. Click Current and choose 1 Partition.
    e. Click Options...

    i. Click Apply then Partition.
    j. Close Disk Utility.
  • When the installer asks you where to install, choose YosemiteHD, or your existing install.
  • Upon completion, system will restart a 1st time.
  • Press the F12 key to choose boot device.
  • When Clover boot screen is visible, Press F4 (this wil dump your dsdt/ssdt, we don't need it for now), choose YosemiteHD.
  • You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for OS X Yosemite. Go through that process to setup OS X Yosemite.
  • Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet" we will fix this later, go further with the setup process.
  • The setup process will take about 3 minutes.
  • Done.

7. Adjust some settings in OS X 10.10

  • Once in 10.10 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.

8. Installing Clover on you Hackintosh
These settings will install the bootloader to the system drive's EFI partition automatically as part of the scripting. After completion, the system drive's EFI partition will automatically mount.
A few more changes need to be made to the default Clover installation:
pre2.jpg

  • Run the Clover installer once again, select the following things show in the image below.
  • Open Clover package installer.
  • Hit Continue, Continue, Change Install Location....
  • Choose the USB, now called YosemiteHD.

  • Move the folder /Clover from the unzipped to your hard drives /EFI/EFI/Clover/ location, make sure to choose to MERGE these folders.
  • Open Clover Configurator and import config.plist(in EFI/EFI/Clover partiton) and edit these values:
    · SMBIOS: create your new SMBIOS (iMac 9,1) with random Serial Number
  • Then EXPORT config.plist to /EFI/Clover/ of EFI partition
  • Move the folder /Clover from the unzipped to your hard drives /EFI/EFI/Clover/ location, make sure to choose to MERGE these folders.
  • Finished and Reboot your fresh installed OS X

9. Video Fix for HD5450

  • Copy the Kext files AMD5000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX3000.kext from system/library/extension to your desktop.
  • Go to AMD5000Controller.kext and rightclick and choose Show Package Contents and open info.plist with textedit.
  • Find <key>IOPCIMatch</key> and add your string for HD5450
    ( HD5450 1GB the string is 0x68F91002 and for 512MB the string is 0x68E11002)
    <string>0x68F91002 0x68981002 0x68991002 0x68E01002 0x68E11002 0x68D81002 0x68C01002 0x68C11002 0x68D91002 0x68B81002 0x68B01002 0x68B11002 0x68A01002 0x68A11002 </string>

    and then look for the first <key>IOPCIMatch</key> and add your string for HD5450
    ( HD5450 1GB the string is 0x68F91002 and for 512MB the string is 0x68E11002)
    add <string>0x68F91002 0x68E01002</string>
  • Save and Exit
  • Install both kext files with Kext Utility
  • Now reboot.
  • After Reboot the video card must be working with QE/CI.

10. BOOT 0 ERROR

Since we have not been able to get in touch with pepto for quite some time now, Polyzargon and I feel that he would most likely not mind if we edited his guide for him.

 

This was the last message I received from pepto:

9. Video For HD5450

 

       The DSDT in EFI/EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched is already edited for HD5450 Video.

       Video should be 100% functional if you are using an HD5450 Video Card.   :)

 

       Important: Using the included DSDT with a Video Card other than an HD5450 may cause system conflicts. Pressing F4 at the Clover Boot Menu

       will temporarily dump the DSDT. If needed, remove the DSDT from EFI /EFI /Clover /ACPI/Patched.

        

       

10. AppleHDA Sound and HDMI Sound For HD5450

 

        There are Two Methods: Clover Injection-Method, and Non-Injection Method.

       

        Clover injection method will not require reinstallation of the AppleHDA.kext after a System Update. Non-Injection Method requires kext reinstall after updates.

        Each Method Requires a properly edited, matching Clover config.plist. For More Info see the readme in the AppleHDA Sound Folder..

 

          1. Open AppleHDA Sound folder that is inside the Kext Folder in The Opltiplex 760-780 Clover zip.

          2, For Injection-Method: Use Kext Utility to install the AppleHDA.Kext from the Injection-Method folder. The Clover config.plist in EFI/EFI/Clover is already set for Injection Method Sound.

              Check to be sure that RealtecALC.kext is in EFI/EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.10, it should be already preinstalled. 

              AppleHDA.kext MUST be installed in S/L/E.  Nowhere else.

          3. For Non-Injection Method: Install AppleHDASound.kext from the Non-Injection Method Folder, and install Matching Clover Config.plist from the same folder.

          4. Sound may not work until you install System Update to 10.10.4.

 

11. Ethernet: 

 

       Install Intel82566MM.kext that is inside Ethernet Folder. 

        AppleIntelE1000.kext can be used if you have problems with your Ethernet, it works better for some people.

       

12. iMessage & FaceTime Fix

 

    You will need MLB and Rom numbers from a legit Mac device that is on the mac server.

    Run iMessage debug on a iMac, Macbook, etc, and make a copy and paste of the Terminal Output.

 

    1.  Open Clover Configurator

    2.  Mount EFI Partition

    3.  Import config.plist from EFI/EFI/CLOVER (File, Import Configuration, browse to config.plist and select).

    4   In Clover Configurator Click on RT Variables, Enter Rom and MLB values from iMessage output from valid imac device. Click on calculate.

    5   Save changes to config.plist

    6   Reboot, Sign into iMessage

 

    iMessage and FaceTime should now both be working.   :)

 

13. Updating To 10.10.5

 

    1.  Download the  !0.10.5 Combo Update. Download

    2.  Install Update

    3.  Computer Will Reboot After Update is Complete

    4.  For Injection-Method Sound, No Updates to Kexts Should Be Necessary

    5.  For AppleHDA Sound, (non-injection Method) use Kext Utility to Reinstall AppleHDA.kext. Reboot!

 

 

 

   A HUGE Thanks to MacPeet For AppleHDMA Sound Fix!   :thumbsup_anim:

Ok,

 

Answer this :

 

Where are your kexts AMDRadeonX3000.kext & AMD5000Controller.kext ?

 

Did you patch them ?

 

Is there a copy of those kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/10.10 ?

Ok, let's start over :

 

Remove AMDRadeonX3000.kext & AMD5000Controller.kext from EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.10

 

Then follow these steps :

(If all of this is already done, you already have patched kexts in S/L/E). If not, proceed as described :

 

 

9. Video Fix for HD5450

  • Copy the Kext files AMD5000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX3000.kext from system/library/extension to your desktop.
  • Go to AMD5000Controller.kext and rightclick and choose Show Package Contents and open info.plist with textedit.
  • Find <key>IOPCIMatch</key> and add your string for HD5450
    ( HD5450 1GB the string is 0x68F91002 and for 512MB the string is 0x68E11002)
    <string>0x68F91002 0x68981002 0x68991002 0x68E01002 0x68E11002 0x68D81002 0x68C01002 0x68C11002 0x68D91002 0x68B81002 0x68B01002 0x68B11002 0x68A01002 0x68A11002 </string>
  • Save and Exit
  • Go to AMDRadeonX3000.kext and rightclick and choose Show Package Contents and open info.plist with textedit.
  • Find <key>AMDCedarGraphicsAccelerator</key>
    and then look for the first <key>IOPCIMatch</key> and add your string for HD5450
    ( HD5450 1GB the string is 0x68F91002 and for 512MB the string is 0x68E11002)
    add <string>0x68F91002 0x68E01002</string>
  • Save and Exit
  • Install both kext files with Kext Utility

 

BEFORE REBOOT !

 

Be sure to set Inject ATI to false in config.plist

 

Do the following :

open a terminal window and type :

 

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

 

valide with return key

 

Now you can reboot

hummm … AMDRadeonX3000.kext & AMD5000Controller.kext seems to be corrupted in some way. Copy the orginal ones from you install disk and re-do patches as explained above.

 

Install them in S/L/E with kext Wizard, repair permissions of whole disk and rebuild the cache with sudo kextcache -prelinked-kernel

 

this "Prelink failed for com.apple.kext.AMD5000Controller; omitting from prelinked kernel." should have disappeared.

 

then reboot.

this "Prelink failed for com.apple.kext.AMD5000Controller; omitting from prelinked kernel." has disappeared

now it's perfect,maybe in the million of try that i do,i used a downloaded kext.

now i'm trying to fix audio

The hdmi it's in grey

The front and the rear work good!

Now i have install voodoohda 2.8.4

HDMI audio has no control in system preferences and this is normal because you're supposed to control volume level directly with the HDMI device. VoodooHDA 2.8.4 works fine with 760 & 780 and it shouldn't be different with 755. Maybe you can try 2.8.7 pkg.

After update to 10.10.1 i reinstall the 2 modified kext and the card is recognize as ati hd5000

 

Or you can put Jake Lo's DSDT http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302877-guide-mavericks-1010x-dell-optiplex-780-760/?p=2088990 in EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched and forget about kexts patching at every update :)

 

In that case, you MUST re-install originals AMDRadeonX3000.kext & AMD5000Controller.kext in S/L/E and rebuild the cache.

After update to 10.10.1 i reinstall the 2 modified kext and the card is recognize as ati hd5000

 

Provided you have a HD5450 video card, that is normal. OS X does not recognize HD5450, so kext edits are done to make OS X think it is a HD5000.

Also, after any Update, normally you must re-edit the 2 video kexts that the update installed, or video resolution will be out again. 

Or if you use the modified DSDT, then you must use only unmodified kexts.

yes,the card work good

Now i have to find a working hdmi audio,i think it's dsdt problem,but i'm not able

 

 

After you fix the HDMI audio problem, make sure you come back and share it with us. :)

      So you've been reading the forum on this brand new boot loader called OpenCore hoping to try it out but you take one look at the configurations PDF and take a step back in shock at the complexity! Well if you've been feeling a bit intimidated by the DOCS well you've come to the right place:
       
      OpenCore Install Guide

      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 10.15.7, see instructions at this post.
       
      If you want to upgrade to 10.15.6, see instructions at this post.
       
      If you want to upgrade to 10.15.5, see instructions at this post.
       
      If you want to upgrade to 10.15.4, 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

      What is not working (that was working in Mojave)
      SD Card Slot (had to remove VoodooSDHC.kext which caused system freeze on wake)  
      Known Issues and Their Solutions
      (Not yet included in E6410-Catalina.zip archive attached to Post #1) There are new versions of acidanthera kexts as described here.  I hadn't noticed any issues with the older kexts, so the kexts are not yet included in the E6410-Catalin.zip archive attached to this first post and will be included in a future update to the E6410-Catalina.zip archive. (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 configuration is:
      Dell XPS 13 9300 Core i7-1065g7 (G7 Iris plus graphics) 16 GB RAM UHD+ monitor (4k: 3840x2400 Touchscreen)  
      The problem that i am currently experiencing is that the internal display is recognised but for some reason is not functioning the way it should. The internal display becomes partially fragmented after few seconds of not doing anything, Although the internal monitor is not functioning, when i connect an external monitor (with FHD resolution) It becomes fully recognised and functioning. When i connect the external monitor the internal monitor becomes blank. With the external monitor i can confirm that i have acceleration.
       
      Here is a log Boot log.
      Here is the config.
       
      Here is a picture of the fragmentation.
       
      Here is a picture when there is an external monitor connected.

      Hi team,
      Please advice me for the issue. Already gone through other posts.
      My spec Ryzen 9 3900x and Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AC motherboard.
      I installed Cataliana on my system .. everything looking perfect exept ethernet. Installed LucyRTL8125Ethernet.kext and ethernet is showing on network window but no internet connection. Adjusted hardware settings in network as Manually/100baseTX/full-duplex, flow-control but issue not fixed.
      Please help me.
       
      Thanks is advance.
