Ok; reinstalled and configured my usb stick again; now I get a white screen and the system reboots. Just before the white screen, I took a screen shot....

 

Here it is for your inspection ;-)

 

I used clover 3330

Yesterday, you have put fakesmc.kext and nvidia was loaded.

Sign may appear about cache.

Restart twice.

If still give error, boot without caches (-f)

 

In your last post.

Kernel cpu error, so missing fakesmc.kext

 

I can't help more.

 

This is legacy boot.

No uefi.

 

You may have bios issue (but i'm sure not)

Then load default bios setting and enable ahci.

 

I worked a few on my Dell,

So new patch will come in early 2016.

Hi Guys; Great Progress ! I Built a USB Stick again and used Alesis's DSDT.aml and now I am looking at the installer screen of OS X El Capitan ! Great !!!  It does not recognise the keyboard, so I guess Dudu's kext files I have not processed correctly. Hooked up an USB keyboard; and that works. Let me see; or maybe you can help, how and where I put Dudu's kext files....

 

Am very happy the puzzle is almost solved  :rofl: !

 

Cheers Bart

your boot issue is not a dsdt.aml issue.

 

compare the two clover config.plist and kexts.

 

it is normal to have to use an external keybord if you have no voodoops2.kext loaded.

 

happy you finally can install it.

So Happy its going the right way; eve managed to install and make your kexts working with kext beast.

 

One more question; how do I make the Internal system boot properly now ? I only can start up if I have the usb key still inserted. If I run clover from the SSD, and boot thereafter, I get a panic screen....

Install clover on Target disk (freshly installed)

And have the same config on it.

 

Add kexts to L/E or S/L/E

 

Reboot without usb.

I am stuck at the same point that you were. I have the exact same system, with the same specs except i have 4gb of RAM. Should not matter. Anyway, I have followed all the settings and steps exactly and recreated the boot drive multiple times. I am unable to get past the wierd screen glitch on the GPU. 

 

I am using the config_duduclx.plist and i have the fakesmc.kext in the correct location. There are no files in /efi/clover/acpi/patched folder.

 

What am I missing? Please let me know what i can try and I will be more than willing to do it.

 

I forgot to add I am attempting to install El Capitan

Hey, don't know if I should jump on this thread, or create a new one, so I'll keep this short and sweet.

 

I've got a E6410, and followed the steps right up to the 'post install', I put the USB pen in, F12, choose it to boot from, get 'welcome to clover 3330' get to the main screen, at the moment I have 'Happy New Year' on it, I have the Silver Apple with blue up arrow with 'Boot OS X Install from Install OS X El Capitan' I hit enter, I get the apple logo for a while, then a bar, which gets to just over half way, then I get the no entry sign.

 

Before I start delving further and breaking things. Anything I can try, or anything I need to provide to help me?

 

Thanks in advance.

be sure to have this boot entry set in your clover config file:

- gux_defer_usb2
- nvda_drv=1
- kext-dev-mode=1
- rootless=0

- dart=0

 

and:

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

you may copy fakesmc.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/10.11 and 10.10 too

 

and try.

hi,

updated the guide.

 

changelog:

- changed dsdt patches

- changed clover config

- changed working/unworking information

- added package files

- added enable trim (el capitan)

 

still have to create the correct audio patch to use applehda + dummy kext + clover patch instead of voodoohda,

and then enable hdmi audio.

 

cheers

 

edit:

- added information about intel gma

- topic is no more a WIP

Ok i followed and re-followed all the steps and i am unable to get it to boot El Capitan.

 

I made sure the fakesmc.kext is in /efi/clover/kexts/10.11  /efi/clover/kexts/10.10 and /efi/clover/kexts/other

 

I checked and checked and re-checked my config.plist and it is set as you recommend.

 

Dart and rootless are added to the config file.

 

I have tried using macbook pro 6,2 and macbook pro 8,2

 

If it is me overlooking something i am sorry, but i am trying to make sure i miss no steps.

Hi Guys (and girls :-) ) ! Today I realised elcappitan fully booting and working on me  E6410.

 

Duduclx and Alesis; Many thanks for baring with me  :yes:  :yes:  :yes: !

 

Thank You!!!!

 

FYI; I installed as per guide, and also used the dsdt file from Alesis. 

 

Now it's time to fine tune.

 

Didclx; Hor do I patch the battery indicator you think ?

 

All the best from Holland,

So I found this post  http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8347-e6410-nvidia-el-capitan/#entry53247. 

 

It looks like the DSDT instructions that Dudu posted fixes this, but I need to do it before the El Captian install due to needing the USB port to install.

 

I have tried following the instructions for creating the patched DSDT, but i am never able to save it as an AML file. I always get an error at line 1.

 

To make sure I am doing this correct. I am opening Maciasl creating a new file and pasting the text into the blank field. Then attempting to save.

 

I am sure i am doing something incorrect. I am new to this. Please let me know what I need to do.

Thank you duduclx and Bartrap for helping me along with this project. 

 

I can finally say I am able to install El Capitan onto my Dell E6410 perfectly now.

 

Thanks to you two I have learned a lot during this project and feel confident on getting another non-apple machine up and running with OSX now.

so why you couldn't load the usb installer ?

have you tried an other usb port ?

 

about the rootless option, i know that, but in the guide, the yosemite usb installer creation is mentionned, and the topic is also tagged with yosemite.

 

about boot options,

they seems to be needed only for the installer.

on installed mac, we can remove:

- gux_defer_usb2
- nvda_drv=1
- rootless=0

- dart=0

and just check:

- kext-dev-mode=1

 

may i have to change something on the guide to make it easier ?

(i used the same "template" for others guide, and just neebie had issue for starting)

 

hope you like your new mac os x computer !

still have to change the audio driver, and make test and workaround about dock station.

 

any of you use dock station ?

 

cheers

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, started on a fresh USB, followed your instructions, still get just over on the bar under the apple logo and blank screen and a no-entry sign. I'm seeing two users above installing on their E6410, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

peejaygee, did you install on a usb 2 stick (not usb 3) ? and for me it started to work in combination with Alesis DSDT.aml file....

 

Alesis ; Can you publish your DSDT.aml to share ?

 

 

Cheers,

 

Bart


Duduclx; It came to my attention, that all your kext files that you published work in the post install, except for the battery indicator kext. I keep on having a "No battery Available" indication.

 

I have installed 10.11.2 fyi.

 

Salut !

I believe it's a USB 2.0, but I was having doubts about the stick also, it's one of my larger capacities that is why I chose it.

 

Speed tests on the USB seem to show the USB2.0 speeds and Walmart sells it as a 2.0

 

http://www.walmart.com/ip/SanDisk-CZ60-64GB-USB-2.0-Flash-Drive/23350701

 

I'll await the DSDT.aml file (if it becomes available here or a url link) and then proceed to try another USB stick to see if it helps.

Personnaly, i used usb3 stick on right port.

I didn't use dsdt to boot the usb installer.

All ports are usb2.

The left port is under a different "chipset".

 

@bart: which dsdt are you using ?

Share dsdt and clover.

Also, i have 10.11.2 too

I have one questions, before I even try anything else, following all the instructions, using the right usb port and pen, etc.

 

All my creation, etc, has been done using VMWare and a 'Hackintosh' installed on that, will that actually work? as that 'might' be the root of all my problems. Does all this need to be done on a real mac?

This is not a working guide for a virtual machine !!

Dsdt stuff and install process can't work on virtual environnement !!

You can use kexts, but not the rest !

 

You have to install it on a hard drive.

You can do dual boot if you want or swap disk.

 

My guide is only for metal installation on a dell e6410 computer !

 

If you want to install it as virtual machine, you can find how to but insanely mac and hackintosh are not supporting help for virtual system !

 

You can easily change the disk or remove the optical drive and insert a hard drive.

Be sure to have the right height of the adaptater.

It should be a slim (9mm) if my memory don't joke me.

No, Sorry, you miss-understood, the final install WILL be on a E6410, but the initial build of the El Capitan USB install (Steps 1 and 2, etc) is being created from a Virtual MAC, as I don't have a real mac, hence trying to install it on a E6410. Does that make more sense?

      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.
       
      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 10.15.4, 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
      (Solved, but not yet included in attached E6410-Catalina.zip archive) 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. (Solved, but not yet included in attached E6410-Catalina.zip archive) EFICheck is loaded.  Solution is to install EFICheckDisabler.kext which you can get here. (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)

      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 .

      Script file to clone and help build Clover, Opencore (official and unofficial) repos
      Script will create link to itself in /usr/local/bin/bob
      Wouldn't hurt to check there are no "Bob"'s there, i "Hope" there isn't.
       
      Then you only need to type bob. and a parameter
      "n" for NDK repo, unofficial
      "a" for ACID repo, official
      "c" for CLOVER
      It also takes "all" for ALL, if your game
      Currently NDK Repo has problems so "all" and "n" DON'T WORK
       
      Easier typing bob than.....usual stuff
      Enjoy
