Run OS X El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6320
This tutorial will describe the steps to install OS X El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M.
If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial.

A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, Jake Lo from OSX Latitude.com and Morpheousman 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 Latitude E6320 i5 2520M – This is necessary to install OS X El Capitan 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 OS X Yosemite.
    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 of OS X El Capitan – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the OS X El Capitan 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.
  • E6320.zipThis ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared.

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. Download OS X El Capitan
Start OS X Yosemite on a exsisting Mac or Hackintosh, 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.

  • Open Mac App Store.
  • Login with your Apple ID.
  • Download OS X El Capitan
  • Done!

The application INSTALL OS X El Capitan will appear in /Applications.
5. Prepare Bootable USB Installer
Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC.
I recommend using Chris1111'S app for creating your USB Installer. It is a great timesaver!

  • Download App Here[/url
  • Follow the instructions in the first Post for creating USB Installer.
  • Select Installer OS X El Capitan and Install in ESP (see image below)
  • Select Install. This step may take some time, good time to get a drink.
  • After App is finished, you will see a EFI Partition of USB installer on your desktop.
  • Open EFI Partition, then open EFI folder, copy and paste the Clover folder from the zip file, to the EFI folder, choose replace folder.
  • Download the latest version of Clover Bootloader and copy it to the root of your USB installer.
  • USB Installer is Done!

6. Bios Settings Dell Latitude E6320
Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OS X El Capitan.

7. Installing OS X El Capitan from your USB drive
Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install OS X El Capitan onto the Hard Drive.
Using a USB 4G flash drive will help things out quite a bit.

8. Adjust some settings in OS X 10.11

9. Installing The Clover Bootloader on Your Hackintosh
The following instructions may appear a bit oversimplified, but we are trying to keep it simple for first-time Clover Bootloaders users.

10. 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.

11. iMessage & FaceTime Fix
You will need MLB and Rom numbers from a legit Mac device that is onthe mac server.
Run iMessage debug on a iMac, Macbook, etc and make a copy and paste of the Terminal output.

iMessage and FacTime should now both be working.
12. What's working?
Just about everything.
13. Finished!
You’ve successfully installed OS X El Capitan onto your Dell Latitude E6320.
TROUBLESHOOTING
14. BOOT 0 ERROR
If you are using a 4k HDD you can get boot:0 error, to solve this issue do the following

15. 16 Message "attempted to boot into EFI while legacy is on".
Sometimes the above message will appear after formatting HDD and installing OS X.

Maybe it have to do with the DSDT and SSDT in folder acpi/patched remove it and start again with the USB to end in the installer. Are the specs of the 6220 the same as my specs writen in the guide !.

My dell has

Intel Core i7 vPro-2620M 2.70GHz

 

Memory 8GB DDR3 (4GB + 4GB)

 

128GB SSD (solid state drive)

 

The dsdt file is where are written the hardware of PC? (Sorry, i'm new on Mac world) and because my specs are little different the installer does't start? Can you share a dsdt file with my specs? Thanks

 

Ps: i have mount a "Broadcom BCM43225HMB WIFI + BLUETOOTH" cause in the Yosemite guide was written to replace the default WiFi card with this One because the default was incompatible with mac osx

Just followed the instructions and installed El Capitan to my E6320.

However when I downloaded El Capitan from the store it was 10.11.1.

Now when I want to install Clover or the Wifi drivers I get an error that the version is not compatible with my system.

Do I have to wait for new versions or can I force it somehow? The installation always fails :(

 

//edit:

I got it working by disabling SIP.

2 problems left. I can't install clover to the HDD. I followed the instructions but the EFI partition ends up empty. When I copy the folders manually it doesn't work either.

And does sleep work for anyone?

I did successfully install 10.10 Yosemite on my Dell 6220. In case you want to try 10.11 El Capitan with DSDT/SSDT, you can extract them from the attached file.

 

 

SSDT needs to for exact same CPU. You do not state the CPU it was extracted for.

Gigasonic: I am having the same exact problem you described with the installer.  The Apple logo appears in center of screen, the progress bar gets to about 3/4 completed, then the screen blanks and shows only a "prohibited" logo (circle with a slash through it) in the center of the screen.  I see you had the same problem but had to change some files DSDT/SSDT?  I have no idea how to do this or where the files are.  Can you provide some additional directions?

      I wanted to push watercooling to the most. Silent. Level. possible.
      While gaming and also for working.
      Quite a challenge and a lot to learn.
       
      Thoughts on water-cooling:
      It always depends on the use-case if water-cooling is more silent than air-cooling.
       
      My personal experience:
      Air-cooling is more silent in idle load scenarios (when you just do some easy tasks like browsing or office) Water-cooling is more silent for constant high load (e.g. when you are gaming/working for long times)  
      Tricks to get the water-cooling as silent as possible:
      Configure the BIOS to turn off the radiator-fans in Idle load scenarios. That leaves only the pump running. Undervolt the pump (to e.g. constant 7V).
      This works best, if you can plug the pump into a fan or pump header and assign a constant (lower that 100%) speed to it in the BIOS.
      If your BIOS does not allow that, you could use a resistor-adaptor to slow it down.

      Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host
      Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. 
       
      The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh.
       
      There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there….
       
      I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg

      @Tech Reviews video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7X07U63lwg.
      VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX
       
      Requirements
         Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X)    4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X)    Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine    Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34    Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75    16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC  
      Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack
      1.  On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder.
      2.  Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes.  Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete.
       
       
       
      3.  Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script:
      cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4.  At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later.
       
       
      Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox
      1.  Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM.
       

       
      2.  Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version.  I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next...
       

       
      3.  Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next.
       

       
      4.  Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button.
       

       
      5.  For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare.  Click next...
       

       
      6.  For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space).
       

       
      7.  On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger.  When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI.
       

       
      8.  Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings....
         a.  On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?)
       

       
         b.  On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2
       

       
         c.  On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB
       

       
         d.  On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". 
       

       
      Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier...
       

       
         e.  Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings.
       
       
      Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac
      1.  From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 
       

       
      2.  Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter>  after each line.  Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick...
       
      Eg iMac11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F2238BAE" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 MacBookPro11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "MacBookPro11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-2BD1B31983FE1663" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 Macmini6,2
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "Macmini6,2" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F65AE981FFA204ED" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 3.  Optional- For some host systems eg those with Haswell and newer CPUs, you might have to spoof an older CPU to avoid VirtualBox errors.  You can try from one of the following if this happens:

      To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff or
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff 4.  Close the command prompt window.
       
       
      Installation of El Capitan
      We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine....
       



       
      Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer:
      1.  Select language, agree to legal terms
       

       
      2.  Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended.  I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan.
       

       
      3.  Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on.
      4.  After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete.  At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive.  The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive.
      5.  At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout.  You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish…
      6.  Create a User Account and select your Time Zone.  You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple….
      7.  Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop.
       

       
      8.  Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted.  Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). 
       
       
      Customization with VBoxManage
      1.  You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt:
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively.
       
      Update:  For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed...
       
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution)
      eg
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2.  Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen
      VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html.
       
      Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD
      The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite .  Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware.
       
      With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie
       
      To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5...
       

       
      Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above).  Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free .
       

       
      UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51.
      UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365:  For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73.
      UPDATE macOS Mojave Beta:  For macOS Mojave Beta, use CMJI.tool on page 4 of thread.
       
      Good luck and enjoy

      /dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_CoreStorage MacOS 500.4 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s5 4: Microsoft Basic Data DATA 498.8 GB disk0s4 /dev/disk1 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: Pendrive *8.0 GB disk1 As you can see my pendrive is available at /dev/disk1 (check yours).
      Now we are going to create partitions, In Terminal:
      diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk1 1 GPT HFS+J "install_macos" R Output:
      Started partitioning on disk1 Unmounting disk Creating the partition map Waiting for the disks to reappear Formatting disk1s2 as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with name install_osx Initialized /dev/rdisk1s2 as a 7 GB case-insensitive HFS Plus volume with a 8192k journal Mounting disk Finished partitioning on disk1 /dev/disk1 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *8.0 GB disk1 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Apple_HFS install_macos 7.7 GB disk1s2 Now as you can see partitions are created and your pendrive is ready to install clover.
      Download the Clover installer. Current builds are available on sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) 
      After Downloading the Clover installer,
      Install it to the Target "install_macos" partition  using "Change Install Location". Select "Customize". Check "Install for UEFI booting only", "Install Clover in the ESP" will automatically selected. Check "BGM" from Themes. Check "AptioMemoryFix.efi", "EmuVariableUefi-64.efi", "OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi" from Drivers64UEFI. After making your selections, Click "Install". Finally, one more EFI driver is needed, HFSPlus.efi:
      Download from : https://github.com/JrCs/CloverGrowerPro/raw/master/Files/HFSPlus/X64/HFSPlus.efi. Copy to /EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI.  
      Kext Setup
      Remove all folders from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/ except 'Other'. Now Download These, FakeSMC.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-FakeSMC-kozlek VoodooPS2Controller.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller USBInjectAll.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All Lilu.kext: https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu IntelGraphicsFixup.kext: https://github.com/lvs1974/IntelGraphicsFixup RealtekRTL8100.kext: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/259-realtekrtl8100-binary/  
      Setting config.plist
      Download it from the attachments, Unzip and replace EFI/CLOVER/config.plist
       
      Building the MacOS Installer
      In Terminal : 
      sudo "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/install_macos --applicationpath "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app" --nointeraction sudo diskutil rename "Install macOS Sierra" install_macos Now your Bootable USB is ready to install. Turn off your Laptop.
       
      Installing 
      Make sure you have adequate bios settings
       
      Then Follow:
      Power on laptop with pendrive connected to it. Continuously press "ESC". Select "Boot From USB" (i.e. F9) and select pendrive from the menu. Now it boots into Clover, with left-right arrow, select options. Select "Graphics Injector Menu". Under "Inject Intel" select "FakeID" and replace "0x00000000" to "0x12345678". Now return to main screen and select "install_macos". When grey screen comes, select DiskUtility. Format whole Hard Disk as "Mac Os Extended (Journaled)" with Name as "MacOS" Now quit DiskUtility and click "Install Mac OS Sierra" and select the newly created partition in previous step. Now installer will begin installing files (~15-20mins) and the restart. After restart again boot into clover(Follow Step 1-5) and again select "install_macos". Now Install screen will appear and continue installation. This time installer will install files to your target partition and create Recovery HD partition. Later on restarts. After restart again boot into clover(Follow Step 1-5) and again select "MacOS". If everything goes well, you will finish up the installation process and arrive at the Mac OS Sierra desktop.  
      Install clover to hdd.
