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 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.
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)
If performing an upgrade from Mojave, backup your Mojave disk! (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 *** MASKED *** parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Boot your Latitude E6410 from the Catalina USB Installer that you created in steps 4-7. 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 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 *** MASKED *** 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) If you are upgrading 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 If you're manually installing kexts in /Library/Extensions, make sure that you 'sudo chown -R root:wheel *.kext' and 'sudo chmod -R 755 *.kext' the kexts in /Library/Extensions and you execute 'sudo kextcache -i /'. After you execute 'sudo kextcache -i /' you should observe that ALL kexts are allowed. If not, your install is not complete. 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)
Version Info at the time of this writing:
Catalina Installer 10.15.2 CLOVER v2.5k r5102 DosDude Catalina Patcher: v1.3.0 Lilu.kext 1.4.0 BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext 2.5.0 BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext 2.5.0 BrcmPatchRAM3.kext 2.5.0 IntelMausiEthernet.kext 2.5.0
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) 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) 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"
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 *** MASKED *** values to your own) kexts/Other (remove all other kext folders) Remove christmas and new year folders from themes (if present)
Thanks to those who contributed to my Mojave solution and to the DosDude team (for the incredible macOS patchers), I think this Catalina installation was the easiest macOS installation that I have experienced (so far). Many thanks to @Slice and his team for the incredible work on CLOVER and for continuing to support old legacy systems like this. Also, thanks to @headkaze, @vit9696 and others I'm sure for maintaining the Brcm kexts.
1st my laptop spec.
CPU - 2.53 GHz Intel Core i3 380m
RAM - 6 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
GPU - 1st gen Intel HD Graphics 288 MB
Laptop - Dell Vostro 3500 series
BT/WIFI - AzureWave BCM94352HMB
I installed Olarila Mojave 10.14.6 and managed to install 1st gen intel HD graphics but it was bit laggy bcos this gnu doest support metal and its a old machine, so I decided to move to Olarila High Sierra.
I installed it with most of things working fine expect some issues, for that I want to make SSDT and DSDT to make it run without glitches.
I am atteching my sendme.zip , can some take a look to my current settings and suggest me some changes
(Olarila down from few days for me )
Send me MacBook-Pro.zip
Now updated for 10.13.6+ Designed for i7 Skylake, QHD+, 256/8GB memory
you may want to disable Configure BIOS settings for EFI Booting. Disable RAID, enable AHCI, virtualization, make sure VRAM is over 32. and you should be set. also disable secure boot and enable UEFI booting You should create an EFI folder onto the USB and copy the contents of the USB onto the drive Boot off the usb using external mouse/keyboard (if required) and follow the installer prompts boot off the MAC HDD NOTES
You may want to remove the DSDT patches if you have an issue. and manually repatch. however if you have the same model it should not be an issue. POST INSTALL
Copy the folders from the root of the USB onto the computer efi folder. NOTES
Some sleep bugs Tested with 10.13.6, not with 10.14 DSDT patches may have an issues if not the same model, you can remove them if there is an issue. CREDITS

Clover r5101 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5101 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5101-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
sudo diskutil mount disk0s1 3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
