Format your usb key with hfs+ journalised format and guid partition

Name it YOSEMITE for yosemite command line

Name it ELCAPITAN for El Capitan command line

Open terminal and enter

sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/YOSEMITE --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app
If you have El Capitan:

sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/ELCAPITAN --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction

- Inject System ID

 

 

 

Copy fakeSMC.kext in:

- /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Others

- /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/10.10

- /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/10.11

 

4/ POST INSTALLATION:

 

 

I’ve install it in /Library/Extensions and fixes permissions,

but you can install it in /System/Library/Extensions with your kext installer:

- ACPIBacklight.kext

- ACPIBatteryManager.kext

- IntelE1000e.kext

- VoodooPS2Controller.kext

- VoodooSDHC.kext

- aDummyHDA.kext

We don't need to inject vendor and device ID in VoodooSDHC.kext's Info.plist

This is already done, but here how to do:

open VoodooSDHC.kext/Contents/info.plist

edit with your value:

<key>IONameMatch</key>
       <array>
               <string>pciVVVV,DDDD</string>
       </array>
save and install.

 

Must be root:wheel, open Terminal and enter:

cd /Library/Extensions
ls -la
if not, enter:

chmod -R 755 <kext name>
sudo chown -R root:wheel <kext name>
in System/Library/Extensions:

- fakeSMC.kext

 

 

 

5/ DSDT PATCHES:

 

 

Copy Patchmatic and Iasl in the folder /usr/bin

Open terminal and enter:

mkdir ~/Downloads/RehabMan
cd ~/Downloads/RehabMan
patchmatic -extract
iasl -da -dl *.aml
close the terminal.

Open MaciASL

go in preferences and add source: http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/master

Then Close.

go to File / save as

name it dsdt-patched and save it as Disassembled ASL file

save it again but with ACPI Machine Language Binary format.

 

paste dsd-patchedt.aml in:

EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched

and rename it dsdt.aml

 

 

 

6/ SSDT PATCHES:

 

 

The cpu is 1st generation of intel's processor aka Arrandale.

 

There is no ssdt needed to have a working cpu power management.

It is managed by AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.

 

 

 

7/ OTHERS

 

 

to hide useless Efi firmware update, open terminal and enter:

sudo softwareupdate --ignore MacBookProEFIUpdate2.7
Enable Trim for SSD:

sudo trimforce enable
You can use the HWmonitor.app provided by rehabman to see fhz, temp, others.

download the fakesmc package.

unzip it, and copy the HWMonitor.app in your Applications folder.

 

 

 

 

8/ PACK FILES:

 

 

here packages with clover, dsdt dump, kexts ...

please, change SMBIOS in the clover config.plist (serial number) to have working imessage/facetime.

 

dell E6410 package

 

 

 

9/ About Intel GMA

 

 

It is possible to disable nvidia graphic cards, and then save power and battery life.

But Dell have EDP, so, it's still possible to have working intel gma only with external screen.

internal screen will not works !!

 

You can find a how to here:

Hi Duduclx; I have followed everything for my E6410, but after configuring the clover file and putting the config.plist in efi/clover, I get stuck with the following screen shots; the second screen shot shows the circle sign with mutulated text...

 

What do you recommend me to do ? Will try to give the config.plist file as well here.

 

Thanks for baring with me  B)

 

Bart


I cannot upload the content of my usb stick because in compressed form it is 20 MB which is too big :(

changed boot option (maybe needed for the installer, but useless for the installed hackintosh)

changed smbios (for better support, cpu and power management)

changed a few acpi patch.

 

let's try it !

Hey dudu,

 

I just wanted to see if you had any thoughts on proper settings for my E6410 that is currently running Mavericks (trying to install El Capitan). I've never used Clover before (currently have Mavericks installed using Chameleon) so the settings throw me off a bit.

 

Currently, when I try your first Clover configuration I end up with a strange ACPI error that halts the install process and it halts.

 

When I try the configuration file you attached last, the "config_duduclx.plist.zip" file, it makes it past that point, but the installation just stops on a black screen with the circle/line icon in the middle (like bartrap's second screen shot, but without any text - just the black screen and struck out circle).

 

With the second config it does show the "loading" bar however before the cross-out circle...

 

Any ideas on what I could try differently with this configuration? Sorry, I'm not quite sure of my Ethernet, SD Card Reader, or Audio type:

 

My System:

 

Dell E6410

BIOS Version: A14

Processor: Intel Core i5 E6410 2.39 Ghz

Network (Ethernet): *Unknown

Network (WLAN): Dell (Broadcom) DW1510 (BCM94322HM) Wireless Half Card

Thank you very much!

to bartrap and draynoe:

try remove dsdt and ssdt from /efi/clover/acpi/patched

 

we have not exactly the same model, so bad dsdt/ssdt may crash your system.

(that's why i do from scrath guide, and normaly refuse to share package files)

 

i don't really know your processor model (i5 E6410 is not a intel reference).

you may not have a sandy processor, i have to know.

 

after have installed mac, please, share me your dsdt/ssdt dump for allow me to patch it correctly.

(you may have the same as E6420 who have working shutdown)

 

i was running mavericks with chameleon before upgrade to clover and el capitan.

all my computers are running with clover boot loader.

 

you can see all my current hackintosh build on geekbench:

browser.primatelabs.com/user/60920

 

About my build, i still have this issue:

- shutdown, motherboard still powered (working with a E6420 original dsdt)

- hdmi audio, not working (patch is normally easy)

- dock station, display port not working (tell me if you have one)

- have to try to remove nvidia and use integrated graphics (may have less video memory, but better support)

 

all the rest is working (sleep, ethernet, bluetooth, sd card reader, keyboard light, brightness, acpi button as volume, build-in display port)

 

i have bios revision A11, generally, bios revision don't change how hackintosh works.

 

cheers

Oh and Bart, I found this which might help you with the prohibited sign with garbled text (check out the fourth bullet point below):

 

"Prohibited" sign on boot

  • Try booting verbose. If it's complaining about OsxAptioDrvFix and relocation block, make sure you're booting from a drive with the latest version of Clover (3270+). This was a common problem with older versions of Clover.
  • If OsxAptioDrvFix doesn't work, try OsxAptioDrv2Fix (but not both at once).
  • For a 2500K, 2600K, or other Core i5 and Core i7 'K' Sandy Bridge CPUs you may need to boot with cpus=1 until you can either install the correct SSDT.aml or finish the install and put NullCPUPowerManagement.kext into /Library/Extensions/
  • If you get all garbled text and/or the message "Still waiting for root device" with the prohibited sign:
    • Try the install USB in every single USB port on your case, motherboard, add-on PCI card, USB hub, etc. and see if it gets farther on any of those
    • If you're using a USB3 stick, use a USB2 stick and try all USB ports again
    • Try booting with cpus=1.
  • If you have USB hub or a port replicator, try putting the install USB in there
  • Double-check SMBios selection: MacPro3,1 may be the most reliable in general

Yeah it is weird - I tried using boot option of cpus=1 after trying all usb ports and I make it a little further than you Bart, but I am now encountering the same error you are encountering. 

 

If you try cpus=1, see if you get further in the boot process... If you figure out how to get into the installer, please let us know. :)

 

I'll keep messing with it too.

 

Thanks!

Hi guys; thanks for your responses; it's a little bit over my head but I try to read and learn and experiment as much as possible; Now I do need to wait for some spare time again ;)

if you follow the guide, you can see than dsdt and ssdt part is only for a running and installed mac os x.

 

please, remove dsdt and ssdt in /efi/clover/acpi/patched

 

don't use cpus=1 (i didn't need it, why should you ?)

 

cheers

Hi dudu,


 


I was just going off of the only other information I could find related to the "prohibited" sign and trying all of those options. Using cpus=1 got me further than any of the other attempts, however it still fails of course.


 


I checked and don't have anything in the /efi/clover/acpi/patched folder ... so not sure what is up there.


 


A couple of questions (sorry if they are dumb questions!):


 


- Do we only need to install Clover to the boot hard drive? Not the installer USB?


- How does having an installed version of Mavericks affect this? Can I just do a clean install in any way? ... I don't want to keep Mavericks anyway.


 


Thanks a ton!


 


:)

you need to install clover to the usb installer, then boot the installer.

install mac on your target hard drive, (then use disk utility from the installer, erase your mavericks, and install el capitan)

reboot with your usb installer, but choose your freshly installed mac os x

install clover on the hard drive.

 

if you are installing El capitan 10.11.1, you must have clover on version 3320 or 3330.

 

if you'are installing el capitan 10.11.0, you can have a lower version of clover, like 3310.

 

please, update your clover to the lastest version.

if you want me to debug, i need to see your clover folder.

Okay thanks dudu,

 

I will continue to try to get it to work out and report my findings once I get the installer going and OS installed. I will post clover folder if I still can't get it to work for some reason.

 

Thanks!

Hi; I have tried as proposed; now on a usb2 stick, with your config.plist Dudu; there is nothing as far as dsdt etc in the mentioned directory.

 

When I install, I still end up with the earlier mentioned screen dumps.

 

dud; I will send you a private message for a link to where you can pick up the content of my usb stick for debugging.

 

Wow, it is certainly a nice puzzle  :yes:  !

 

Thanks for the help again...

After have a look in your clover folder, I have realize that i've forgot something in the tutorial.

 

Added :

 

Copy fakeSMC.kext in /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Others

 

This will works better.

Sorry, my bad.

 

I've tried to use intel GMA integrated GPU today.

It can use 1500Mb of memory.

 

i have prepared different patch, but failed for now.

 

with my Bios A11, i have no disable/enble nvidia/intel grpahics options.

someone here with Bios A16 have this option in bios ?

 

cheers

Hi Duduclx; Thanks for your response; I will try what you say asap and let you know.

 

I have the A16 firmware in my E6410, and I checked but there is no disable/enable nvidia/intel option or anything like that. Hope you can use the information.

 

Voila merci, et a bientot,

 

Bart

hi.

 

Some Updates to the first post:

- updated link to kext

- updated hardware list

- updated clover config (adjust resolution and remove useless nvidia from drop dsdt part)

- updated dsdt patch

: no more manual patch to do

: fixed shutdown issue

: prepared dsdt to be used with intel GMA

- removed outdated package files

 

i've find that the intel GMA from I7 M640 support up to 1,5Go of Vram

so new dsdt patch set it to 1,5Go of Vram

 

for now, when i try to use intel gma, i go till the desktop loading (so all the boot part is good, all drivers loaded),

but that's white (trying to resolve the gpu work) for one second, and got a Crash (reboot).

 

i'm not sure to spend more time on it.

even if i'm not happy about hdmi audio, intel gma qe/ci

and you will surely not about the dock station issue.

 

i still have more hackintosh project:

- update GA-X58-UD3R with ati raddeon 7550 and areca raid card (my home server)

- update the Ativ XE700T1C guide and computer (my wacom stuff to draw like a child)

- Apple G5 case mod with one of this:

: Dell R300 server

: Dell R200 server

: Dell Optiplex 760

- fixing little issue on HP 820 G2

and more, like transform a second optiplex 760 as synology server with lastest DSM

recycle old internal/external screen, raspberry, dell servers and other stuff to create a custom digital board, low table and more ...

 

yeah, my guest room looks like a computer's graveyard.

last minute search:

HP elitebook 8540P have the same CPU, with nvidia NVS5100M gpu.

8x60p models are similar.

 

You surely know that probook installer clover edition have script to install and configure a full working hackintosh

let's have a look to it:

https://bitbucket.org/dhnguyenit/hp-probook-installer-clover-edition

and there's surely good information in the rehabman's repo:

https://github.com/RehabMan/HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch

 

the intel gma integrated gpu support only 2 display.

and here a generic guide for intel gma:

Although we have different hardware we do have very similar CPU/GPU generation.  Just couple quick questions.  How did you get shutdown/Seep/Wake to work and Ricoh PCI SDcard slot?   I think yours is NEC no?  I also had to make a USB injector otherwise none of the USB ports were working.  I have tried everything.  Shutdown worked in OS X 10.11.1 but once I updated to 10.11.2 it stopped.  Sleep/Wake  stopped since 10.11.0. Sleep/wake/shutdown work fine in  Yosemite 10.10.5.  What happens is it states to sleep, screen goes black and it never sleeps nor wakes.  Screen stays black.  Same with shutdown, it looks like its shutting down, I see verbose unloading everything but screen stays black and fans still turn. My DSDT has been fully patched obviously working in Yosemite.  Is there some new DSDT patches to fix this shutdown, sleep and wake issues?

 

My Laptop is Asus G51Jx-X1, CPU=i7-720Qm, GPU= Nvidia GTS360M, only discreet no intel GPU.  Using Mac Model MacBookPro6,2 for best CPU/GPU Power management.

 

Thanks

Arrandale cpu use appleintelcpumanagement for sleep/wake.

You may need nullcpupowermanagement for your system.

 

For sd card, i use a patched voodoosdhc.

This doesn't work with all ricoh sd card reader.

 

About shutdown and usb, you need better dsdt patch.

Usb have changed with El capitan.

 

Please, open new topic about your system and problem.

Post ioreg, original and patched dsdt, the pci/hardware list.

 

You can send me a pm to share me your new topic.

 

I will not help you in this topic because of that's over topic.

Hi Duduclx and others; Was gone working but have some time again now. Merry Xmas !!!

 

I copied  fakeSMC.kext in /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Others as requested.

 

If I install now I get a slightly different screen before I get the Prohibited screen again; 

 

Here is the screen dump just before the text gets distorted and the prohibited sign appears....

Hi Guys; Am starting from scratch again just to be sure. Question; Do I put in the E6410 bios the Boot List Option on UEFI or Legacy ? Until now I had it on Legacy option.

 

Duduclx; maybe I can put a usb stick on the post for you to check ? Tuesday I am gone working for another six days or so so the process getting there is slow :(...

 

 

Have a nice sunday, 

 

Bart

      *** 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 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).
      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 Catalina thread. Copy the DSDT from Post #1 in the Catalina thread if you want to remain on Mojave and want your laptop to sleep when closing the lid. 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) Change HDAU.hda-gfx from "onboard-1" to "onboard-2" Change GFX0.hda-gfx from "onboard-1" to "onboard-2" 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.  
      Credits
      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.

    • By tonyx86
      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 10.15.3 (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.

      Steps to install Catalina on a Dell Latitude E6410 (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m)
      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 on your boot disk and configure EFI using files in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip.  Use the CLOVER configuration below.  Your EFI Clover/kexts/Other folder needs only FakeSMC.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, USBInjectAll.kext and VoodooPS2.kext.  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.  NOTE: These instructions assume installation of Brcm kexts in /Library/Extensions.  Read the Brcm install instructions if you're installing kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other, since your installation and at least one kext WILL BE DIFFERENT. 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: Update Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /Library/Extensions) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. NOTE: These instructions assume installation of Brcm kexts in /Library/Extensions.  Read the Brcm install instructions if you're installing kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other, since your installation and at least one kext WILL BE DIFFERENT. Update IntelMausiEthernet.kext Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions Re-install VoodooHDA if necessary (I installed using the Classic method) 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
      (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). 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. (Work-around - no permanent solution yet) Cannot turn on Bluetooth after shutting-down with Bluetooth off.  Work-around is to leave Bluetooth on.  I don't use Bluetooth and don't mind, so this will likely be solved by someone else.  If you experience this issue and can't turn-on Bluetooth, I have found that putting the laptop to sleep (Fn-F1) and then waking the laptop restores proper operation of Bluetooth.  I have posted a problem description, logs and problem reporting files in this thread for help with this problem. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop does not sleep when closing lid.  Solution is to add a Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) in the DSDT.  No surprise that the Latitude E6410 has yet another incomplete ACPI implementation.  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
      Install Clover in the ESP Boot Sectors Install boot0af in MBR Clover for BIOS (legacy) 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)  
      Credits
      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 .
