[GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410 Nvidia El Capitan Clover [ENG]

241 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is totally off topic and should be addressed elsewhere but allow me clarify this: the WLAN/WWAN slots of these older Latitude laptops are mini PCIe/USB only, not mSATA. One must therefore be extremely cautious regarding the mini SSD cards that would installed. True mini PCIe SSDs are quite scarce these days (they also always tend to be PATA type, not SATA -i.e. much reduced performance- and of small capacity) and there is an unfortunate but sustained general confusion between mini PCIe and mSATA on the description of most advertised products. This very matter has been subject to substantial discussion all over the Net throughout the years, you can google for it, we're not going to renew this here...

 

So, mSATA SSDs will never be useable in these slots. True mini PCIe SSDs with on-board PATA or SATA controller are required. If you do find a mini PCIe (not mSATA) SSD of a decent size (say 128 to 256Go) with on-board SATA controller and at a reasonable price, please post the details. Many people will be interested. NB: you'll probably encounter mini SSD cards for Asus Eee PC but these fit an interface specific to those laptops.

 

Just to give you a recap:

E6x00 -> combo mini PCIe/USB slots only

E6x10 -> combo mini PCIe/USB slots only

E6x20 -> combo mini PCIe/USB slots only

E6x30 -> combo mini PCIe/USB slots only

E6x40 -> combo mini PCIe/USB/mSATA slots (1st time support for mSATA, undocumented by Dell)

 

I own a E6220, a E6230 and a E6440 so I can vouch for the above. One can only run an mSATA SSD on those older laptops with an adaptor off the standard SATA HDD slot or the expansion/optical disc bay.

 

and i can confirm that, i've found 128GB's but they are PATA/IDE, and all the advertised mPCIe SATA SSD's are mSata. And the sellers have used this confusion a lot, and still do. I was about to order from alibaba, and on the last second i noticed the msata in a different specs page, but the title did not mention it. Very unfortunate indeed, i cannot see the point of the absence of such technology.

 

MacBookPro6,2

Intel Core i5  2,4 GHz

4GB Ram

ST1000LM014-1EJ164 HDD

Dell NVS 3100M

Atheros 9285: 4.0.74.0-P2P

 

i had to install AtherosWiFiInjector.kext and IO80211Family.kext to activate WLAN i think there is the problem but i don't know where to patch in dsdt

 

Actually i meant the hardware specs from dell, there seem to be a few submodels of e6410, some have i7 some i5, some have nvidia gpu's and some dont. 

 

nvm, having a headache here and things are flying off me.

 

i'll PM you my dsdt laster as we seem to have a similar device (except wifi), also, are you using Clover right?

yes i use clover the newest version.

 

If you have an AR9285-based card, you can patch your DSDT as detailed here to get the card to work OOB.

thanks for the info, i have WIFI working now. But still the same when i shut down everything turns of except Power LED and the FAN.

Restart is working fine.

no eSata to test.

 

but it should.

 

have you tested it ?

Actually yes. It worked with injecting [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]'s eSata generic kext.

Same with all my hacks. I will test with docking station eSata port and bet it will work too. 

Cheers.

duduclx - thanks! I am typing this from my newish oldish E6410, all is working except audio. This is so amazing. I only spent $80 US on this thing, and moved my 8gb ram from my old beater C2D macbook pro. I call this an upgrade. Except for the audio, but I'll get there. I have other hackintoshes in the house, but this was my first laptop.

audio may not working if you have update to 10.11.3 or above.

 

new patches is needed.

you surely can find them easily.

 

my dell E6410 will surely be sold.

i get a E6230.

both are my wife's computer.

 

me, have a HP 820 G2 and an desktop based on gigabyte motherboard.

 

i'll do a interactive coffee table soon, based on a dell optiplex 760 and dual boot android for pc and mac, with IR touch screen.

 

thanks for read and follow this guide.

cheers

Thanks for all the guides. I got the audio to work, running 10.11.5. 

 

I have to say, the E6410 is an impressive little machine, but its trackpad and clicker are it's Achilles heel. I'd say it's the worst thing in terms of hardware on this laptop. But it's a fantastic value for anyone trying to hackintosh an i7 or i5 processor laptop.

I sure would like to get my 6410 up and running. I started to tinker with it a while back when Mavericks was out and could never get it to boot the installer. Is there a boot package I need in order to get the USB to run and have a full functioning HackBook Pro like bellyface above.

Blaggah, follow the steps at the beginning of the guide that duduclx drew up. As long as your E6410 has the nvidia GPU, I'd say it's perfectly doable. I totally doubted at first, but once I saw the apple glowing on that dinky dell, I knew it was possible. There were some hickups for me, keyboard and trackpad didn't work at all at OS X install stage, no issue I just plugged in a mouse and keyboard. In the end it all worked, but I ended up spending $10 on a broadcom wifi card off amazon.

 

It's doable, don't be afraid!

bellyface, I'd have to check the laptop again tonight to see if it has the nvidia gpu.. As I'm sure it does but the only thing I remember is that it's the i5 model. I already swapped out the old hard drive to an SSD since I got it but really haven't put it to use..

If it does not have the nVidia GPU, please note that the 1st gen Intel HD graphics of the E6410 cannot enjoy full graphics acceleration due to fitted eDP connector. That's unsupported by Apple on that iGPU. This makes the Intel HD E6410 a very poor (and, in my opinion, unworthy) Hackintosh as graphics are only partially supported.

Ok i got almost everything to work on my dell but of course wifi no good.

just wondering is my broadcom wifi supported? if so how can i get it to work.

 if wifi card not supported is there any cheap wifi cards that will work with this laptop?   :)

I checked and it does have the nvidia graphics on board. I left it to charge and probably attack it later on tonight if I get the chance.

LiquidKenpachi - Sounds like your clover install is not complete. Follow the steps exactly on what to check off in clover installer and be sure to select the new Sierra drive.

I installed sierra on one of my partitions on my macbook pro, loving what I see so far.

I managed to install El Capitan 10.11.3 last night and have yet to update it due to my wireless card not working. It keeps saying searching for network idk why it's happening.  I use those cards on all my laptop hackintoshes that support half mini wifi modules. It's the AR5B93, i bought about 30 of them in a lot for about $20 on ebay a few months back.

 

The things I noticed after post installation is that machine won't shut down and sleep doesn't work. If i manually sleep, it wakes right back up within a mili of a second.

Atheros AR5B93 works OOB in all recent or less recent OS X/Mac OS X versions, from SL to Sierra. You must have issues with your DSDT. Check that it does not contain a reference to another wifi card model. That would sure screw things up.

 

For the rest, well... I believe it's been discussed at great length in those 10pages.

You may be right Hervé, I'll get down to it tomorrow. I have to get rid of the DSDT.

 

Is there a specific line I should look out for  in the DSDT for the wifi card?

Hello. I have used this guide to install El Capitan on my E6410 with the NVS 3100M, the Intel Core i5, and two 2GB RAM cards, also using the config.plist from here and the DSDT.aml from here. The installation went fine, although it got stuck at "About a second remaining" for a long while. It did, however, eventually reboot the laptop. Afterwards, I deleted the DSDT.aml from the USB and replaced the config.plist with my own version (I took the version from /EFI/CLOVER in the pack, and used a different serial number). When loading back into Clover from the USB, the only entry is the El Capitan USB installer. I think that part of the issue is that I am using El Capitan version 10.11.6, as the installer had said it encountered an error while opening a file including the word "Update" and the phrase "10.11.6", however I do not remember the exact name. I have uploaded my config.plist. I would be very grateful for any and all help, thank you!

 

config.plist : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6fMfzYoSCJCc1pzYTkwc2Y4QTA

 

EDIT: Well, I guess I'll try my backup of the 10.11.1 installer. Let's see how this goes!

 

EDIT2: Storing the installer on a Windows FS definitely was not a good idea, as now the installer warns that it can not find the installation application. Oh well, back to the drawing board...

 

EDIT3: I suppose I'll try the Yosemite installer. There's nowhere to go but up! But it sure would be easier to go up with a little help... :(

 

EDIT4: I haven't tried Yosemite yet, but I have tried El Capitan 10.11.4. After the installation, I replaced the EFI folder on my USB with the one from the pack. It still did not show the internal hard drive as a bootable volume. I think my computer has some issues.

 

EDIT5: I suppose I'll switch back to Windows, for now. Every computer I try to hackintosh ends up like this (except my D620, for some reason)... it's like Apple doesn't want me installing their OS on non-Apple software! Crazy! I hope I get help eventually, though. Because I will wait forever.

 

EDIT6: I've been getting more help on a thread I created on OSXLATITUDE, found here. If anyone has the same problem as me, be sure to look there! :)

HI Guys (and Girls ?)!

 

Long time no action from my side but am going to try to upgrade 2 E6410 machines (one i5 and one i7) from el capitan to Sierra; I did it as per description on another popular osx site of a guy named Tony  :) but it led to panics in the beginning.

 

Dudu or Hervé; Are you guys in for it to update this guide or is it too much work ? Can I be of any assistance ?

 

Salut from Holland,

 

Bart

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.

      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.
