A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial. And Hervé from insanelymac for using is modified DSDT.aml for E6320

2. Requirements
Here are the requirements:

  • A Dell Latitude E6320 – This is necessary to install macOS Sierra for this tutorial
  • A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended.
  • A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger).
  • A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store.
  • 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while.
  • An SSD or HDD to install 10.12 to – For me, I used a 500GB HDD to install 10.12 to.
  • An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor.
  • E6320_V2.zipThis ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared.

3. My Specs
My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5-2520M laptop computer with the following specs.

  • Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.5GHz, 3MB cache, Dual Core
  • 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
  • Western Digital 250GB HDD
  • INTEL HD3000 Video
  • Intel 825xx onboard network
  • Dell wireless 375 Bluetooth 3.0 onboard (works OOB)

  • Apple Magic Trackpad (only @home)
  • Apple Wireless Keyboard US (only @home)
  • Apple Magic Mouse

4. Download OS X Sierra

  • Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store.
  • Once macOS Sierra is downloaded, close the install pop-up that appears using Command (⌘)+Q.
  • The application INSTALL macOS Sierra will appear in /Applications
  • Done!

5. Prepare bootable USB Installer
Note on flash drives: You will need a USB flash drive to make this work. Your USB should be at least 8GB and a USB 3.0 drive is preferred. Kingston sells an 8GB USB 3.0 drive for less than 10 euro.
Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Make sure that the disk you choose to use doesn't contain anything that you want to keep, because the following tutorial will purge everything on the drive.

  • Open Finder - Applications and right-click on Install macOS Sierra and select Show Package Contents.
  • Open Contents - Resources.
  • Open a Terminal window thru Applications - Utilities - Terminal.
  • In the Terminal window type sudo followed by a space.
  • Drag the createinstallmedia file from the finder window opened in Step 4 to the Terminal Window.
  • Type --volume followed by a space.
  • Connect your USB drive and drag the USB drive into the Terminal Window.
  • Type --applicationpath in the Terminal followed by a space.
  • Open Finder - Applications and drag the Install macOS Sierra into the Terminal Window.
  • Press Return on the keyboard to submit the full command.
  • Type a 'Y' to continue when prompted to do so, and press Return on your keyboard
  • The install process will begin by erasing the contents of your USB disk and copying the installer files to the USB disk. The entire process is quite lengthy; it can takes around 15-30 minutes, so you will need to show some patience

6. Installing Clover to the USB Disk

  • Unpack the E6320.zip to your desktop or specified map you preferred.
  • Open the map E6320 - Clover_v2.3k_r3726.

My 2cents contribution to this thread...
 
Regarding hardware specifications, please note the following:

  • LAN card is Intel 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet (PCI ven id 0x8086, dev id 0x1502)
  • Audio card is IDT 92HD90 (Codec 76E7) High Def audio (PCI ven id 0x8086, dev id 0x1c20)
  • Card reader is O2 Micro SD card reader (PCI ven id 0x1217, dev id 0x8231)

You do not need to use VodooSDHC kext for the card reader, the following DSDT patch supports the device OOB and avoids Sleep/Wake issues caused by VoodooSDHC. Under the RP0x device used for the SD card reader, rename device PXSX to SDXC and add the following _DSM method:

                Device (SDXC)          // renamed from PXSX
                {
                    Name (_ADR, Zero)
                    Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)          // injected DSM method
                    {
                        Store (Package (0x08)
                        {
                            "AAPL,slot-name", 
                            "Built-in", 
                            "device_type", 
                            Buffer (0x11)
                            {
                                "Media controller"
                            }, 
                            "model", 
                            Buffer (0x18)
                            {
                                "O2 Micro SD card reader"
                            }, 
                            "compatible", 
                            Buffer (0x0D)
                            {
                                "pci14e4,16bc"          // Apple's own device as declared in AppleSDXC kext
                            }
                        }, Local0)
                        DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
                        Return (Local0)
                    }
                    ...

NB: on my E6220, the card reader is located under device RP06. You'll have to check this in IOReg to locate it on the E6320 as it may differ.
 
Regarding the Clover on-the-fly patches:
1) IOGraphicsFamily:
I'm pretty sure all you need to fix the boot display glitch is:

Find 0100007525
Replace by 010000EB25

That's all I'm using and it's working fine.
 
2) AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB:
The vanilla SNB framebuffer kext contains the following display port definitions:

01 02 04 00 10 07 00 00 10 07 00 00 // Nb of connectors -> "04"
05 03 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 00 00 00 // built-in laptop display
02 05 00 00 00 04 00 00 07 00 00 00 // display port
03 04 00 00 00 04 00 00 09 00 00 00 // display port
04 06 00 00 00 04 00 00 09 00 00 00 // display port

`
 The following mods will give you HDMI video/audio + VGA + DVI (off docking station)

Find 02 05 00 00 00 04 00 00 07 00 00 00
Replace by 02 05 00 00 00 08 00 00 05 00 00 00   // patched: HDMI, display port #5 (built-in port)

Find 03 04 00 00 00 04 00 00 09 00 00 00
Replace by 06 02 00 00 00 04 00 00 08 00 00 00   // patched: VGA, display port #8 (built-in + docking-station port)

Find 04 06 00 00 00 04 00 00 09 00 00 00
Replace by 04 06 00 00 00 04 00 00 07 00 00 00   // vanilla: DVI, display port #7 (docking-station port)

`

If DP output is desired (port #6), either of the following 2 mods can be used instead of one of the above lines (display definitions limited to 4 ports):

02 05 00 00 00 08 00 00 06 00 00 00

or

04 06 00 00 00 04 00 00 06 00 00 00

NB: With this DP mod, external audio only goes through DP (not HDMI) and VGA dies.

I can't, I don't have a E6320. Just patch your DSDT as I explained: identify the RP0x/PXSX device in IOReg and simply patch your DSDT according to the code I posted. You can't really go wrong...

I tried the way you said,

In step 9, I just faced some errors(2 threads but only found 1), after searching I found this topic:

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/205531-kernel-panic-should-have-2-threads-but-only-found-3/

 

and I renamed the DSDT.aml to DSDT2.aml and the problem solved, but now after I wait for progress bar to fully load, it shows me prohibition sign instead of apple's logo and it does not pass.

Can u help me solve the problem?

Oke I have done some searching I have found the PXSX in IOReg but I see 2 RP, RP02 and RP06 the only difference is the awake entry ACPI-WAKE-TYPE 0X2 See attached screenshot of ioreg

 

Also have attached the DSDT editor screen, I have tried different things but every time I get a unexpected $end

@Pepto, you've gone through all the trouble of posting screenshots of your IOReg but for the wrong device! Can you please confirm that your SD card reader is indeed under RP06. Reboot with your E6320 DSDT then check the PCI ids listed under RP06->PXSX device. Expect vendor 1217 and device 8321.

 

If, as expected, it's indeed RP06->PXSX, use the attached revised DSDT. It's got:

* DTGP method added

* RP06.PXSX renamed to RP06.SDXC (i.e. same device name as Apple's)

* required DSM method injected into RP06.SDXC

Hello, I got the TP link usb wifi and installed the latest driver. However, it's telling me that I'm connected but there's no internet. Is there a hack or a kext that can help with that?

thanks

It must works if you have the TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor. No need to hack the kext.

      My steps so far:
      Set up Catalina install USB exactly according to Plain Vanilla guide. Disconnect my Windows drive in PC, so that only the empty Hard Drive is connected to Motherboard. Boot to USB, select Install Catalina option. BIOS set to UEFI, Safe mode Off. Always get stuck at the same IOconsoleUsers: GIOScreenLockState point. Tried -radvesa, -radoff, nv-disable=0 boot options (separately), and disabling BIOS virtualization (vt-d) -> NO luck. This from the top search result https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/b5a6ry/ioconsoleusersgioscreenlockstate_3_blackscreen/  
      Screen pics attached. Here are the last couple of lines that could be important:
      GTrace synchronization point 4
      Unsupported CPU
      Unsupported PCH
      Adding ADGP mode validate property
      hmm.. mismatch sizes 3100 vs 20
      IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lin 0, llk 1,
      IOconsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
       
      Please give me some ideas what else might work. Thank you.

      What doesn’t work
       
       
      Sleep Wake — I have no idea how to fix it as it is required DSDT patch I guess. GPS NFC Audio ---> Realtek I2S Audio (PG0.35 for DELL)
       
      In DSDT entries is HDAUDIO\\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0282&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_1000\ Which indicates ALC282
       
      Audio ALC3263 (As it shown in BIOS) - Broadwell rt286 - Card1/Codec#0 (Utilised in I2S Mode) there is nowhere in BIOS to change to HDA mode). Drop OEM HDA and Fix HDA don’t do anything, still show 3 HDMI Audio outputs. If there is a DSDT patch to force HDA Audio mode, Please do enlighten me.
      As a result Internal Speaker, Internal Mic, and Headphone Jack doesn’t work.
       
      Touchpad on Travel Keyboard Dell K12a001 (Should work with DSDT Patch with pin configuration) I have no idea how. Obviously, Intel Wireless 7265 AC. For experimental purpose. https://github.com/daliansky/XiaoMi-Pro-Hackintosh/issues/330 — Knock yourself out. I managed to get it work for awhile but the real problem is kernel panic so I gave up.

      OOO>>> With Windows 8.1 patch which it should run with this one because it can see more of HID devices and controllers.
       
      Problem is Accelerometer (SHUB).
      Device can automatically rotate screen as it should be BUT it flips the screen wildly even with slightly movement. It stops only when device stays completely still. Eventually it breaks internal screen graphic. It becomes grabble. I restored internal screen graphic by connecting it to external monitor and set rotation of external screen to 0 degree. Then it is back to normal. (I guess it conflict with rotation setting) I disable SHUB in DSDT.
       
      ---------------------
       
      During Installation process Full Graphic acceleration can be activated straight away by Lilu and Whatevergreen. AppStore, iMessage and, FaceTime activate by NullEthernet and SSDT by Rehabman USBInjectAll needed for keyboard and other usb peripherals. Use other tool to keep certain ports active as Rehabman mention this KEXT is not good for a long run. Please do Correct me if I did something worng. Or any suggestions to make this thing runs better.
