[GUIDE] Dell XPS 15 (9550) Mojave 10.14 / 10.15 Quick Installation

- for me, battery usage is same as on Windows - around 3-4 hours. But this is on 4K screen (on 2K should be much-much more)

- touchpad - yes, not perfect, but looks like EmliDinesh got back to hackintosh scene, so maybe in some time we will get new version of famous Smart Touchpad driver

- strange, i'm not experiencing anything like you are talking about sleep/wake/brightness control is working perfectly (except screen not lighting up without touching keyboard after sleep)

well Ive got the 4k model too equipped with ~84Wh battery and the same duration as yours, max 3h screen on time but in the middle brightness.

On windows, Ive managed to achieve ~6h battery life.

 

Firstly, I chose the energy management via the OS option with the patch of corse. It is not as well as I thought.

After that I changed back to Intels solution, same with this. One thing to mention, I applied the ISS and C-state in the BIOS

Actually, never got more than 4-4.5 hours on windows with 84Wh and 4K screen (even from first days as i got this laptop)  :) So, I'm amazing such results - are you using battery saving power profile in Win? With performance profile - it looks nearly impossible for XPS.

nope... well configured in the advanced power management (win7 style panel) & how to use nvidia

 

But as soon as I manage to dual boot with windows, Ive got a system image recovery file and show you the difference.

 

Btw I installed the Intel power Gadget, but nothing weird shown

I have the same model as yours. I have at least 5 hours on battery on Mac. On Windows it drains really quick

Thanks for the feedback! So I guess you use the Intel Speed Step management

On mine - it is same for all time i remember. After sleep - you need to press any button on keyboard yo light-up screen (it can be any button, not only power). Will check on next week how it is working on real MBP

P.S. Just asked friend with real MBP12,1 - he told that on real mac screen is lighting automatically. So, looks like we have one more thing to fix for full perfection :)

Use boot argument darkwake=1 to fix that. See my build for what darkwake actually does in code (in post #4 I pasted the source code bitmasks, and darkwake=1 is "earlytickle").

!! You're totally right. Sorry about that! Fixed (formatting & PDF will be fixed as soon as I'm off mobile). Thanks for catching that. :)

Am I safe to use my Apple ID in App Store? I won't be using iMessage or Face Time.

I recommend following this guide: https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/525dsb/getting_imessage_working_on_el_capitan_and_sierra/

Even if you are not going to use iMessage or Face Time. I had an account blocked with this laptop only using App Store, because i didn't have the correct info set up.

I wonder if in this step:

 

> sudo cp -r ./10.12/Post-Install/LE-Kexts/* /Library/Extensions/

 

I can copy LE-Kexts to EFI/CLOVER instead and expect everything to work? If yes, any downside except slower boot time? Because I'm not really care about boot time at all.


Use boot argument darkwake=1 to fix that. See my build for what darkwake actually does in code (in post #4 I pasted the source code bitmasks, and darkwake=1 is "earlytickle").

darkwake=1 fixed the problem in my machine as well.

@wmchris should it be added to the clover config in github repository?

and in this guide, which config.plist should I modify?

1 EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plis

2 EFI/EFI/CLOVER/OEM/Systemproductname/config.plis

3 EFI/EFI/CLOVER/OEM/Systemproductname/UEFI/config.plis

or all of them?

The only config.plist you should ever need to modify, as far as I know, is the EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist.

Thanks! I will try it out.

 

Does anyone have a problem with screen turning off after 3 minutes of no use? Mine turns off no matter what the value is in "Computer Sleep" or "Display Sleep".

Hi,

 

First of all, great tutorial! Got it working with relative easy. (my second time installing a hackintosh)

 

I do have some problems with my install though:

- I'm not getting audio over HDMI:

- I have done the HDMI/VGA fix, which worked, but only for video (i'm on MBP13,3 SMB btw).

- Installed pached AppleHDA with files on repo.

- tried installing via cloverHDMI, no succes.

I am getting an error that AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext is invalid or something so I might have done something wrong. Is it possible to get hold of a original copy of that kext somewhere?

 

- My laptop gets really hot while it's charging. The heat comes from right under the Ctrl/Fn keys, and it's not that hot while using from battery (using Intel Speedstep in case this matters). Would switching to OS power management fix this, or is it hardware related?

- None of my sensors seem to be working. Noticed this while troubleshooting the heat issue from the last point (Getting no temperature reading on anything in iStat).

 

I have the i7 / 4k-touch / 16G Ram / Toshiba 512G model.

If you want sensors, use "SSDT-Fans" and "ACPISensors.kext" from my build. They won't work the way they are implemented by Dell.

on 9550 you dont need this workaround.

Hi,
I recently noticed an ACPI error in my logs that pops up everytime I plug/unplug my charger.

It seems some guy filed a bug report for ubuntu (XPS 9350) for something similar, although the error happened when he unplugged his monitor through USB type-c.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1574044/

I also found some people complaining about this error on other Dell computers in the Arch and Dell forums.
 
Wanted to know if anyone knows something about it.

Using 10.12.6 Beta 4 as main system and 10.13 DP1 as sandbox for experiments :)

 

 

just to verify...Did you update from the original 10.12.2 image in the tutorial or was you install/reinstall using these later versions of macOS ?

      Hi, So I have been working to get the OpenCore bootloader to work on my E6230.
       
      What works:
      - QE/CI
      - Brightness slider
      - Brightness hotkey (Fn+Arrows)
      - USB2
      - Keyboard
      - Trackpad
      - Everything else except below, ig
       
      What does not(YET):
      - Audio (Actually, It detects the correct layout, but it doesn't recognize the speakers. My speakers are tested with the Preboot Diagnostics)
      - USB3.0(p/s: Patching PCI0._INI to get a Darwin system with OSYS=0x07D9 will stall the machine early)
      - Sleep/wake (cant wake up after sleep)
       
      Why I'm trying OpenCore:
      - Boot time is impressive (10s new installation here, compare to about a minute on Clover)
       
      P/s: If you haven't familiar with OpenCore, It loads ACPIs, Kexts in the order specified in the config.plist
      - My BIOS version is A11 (My battery does not hold any charge, AAR, I can't update the firmware).
       
      Please help me with the remaining, thanks
       
      Thanks

      Hi,
       
      Finally I finished the installation of 10.14.6 on my Dell E5440. Everything works just fine, but HDMI will not work. Every time I plug it in, it causes a grey screen on my laptop monitor. Also on boot up. I attached my EFI Folder, maybe someone can help me. I searched a bit and read something about Azul Framebuffer Kext.
       
      Thank you for helping.

      Hi, i can someone help me with installing mac OS Mojave on my HP ENVY - 15-as102na?
      I have an imac to use for setting up my usb & installing MacOS Mojave.There are various kext files etc that i'm not sure about and need some help as some are hardware specific.
      I tried previously but got stuck on an apple logo and couldn't get past that, and tried today and had problems with Clover.
      Once i get mac os on my 128gb m.2 ssd ( which i'll upgrade to either a 256gb or 512gb depending on how well this hackintosh works)
      I have a free 2.5" inch hdd bay where i'd like to install windows on in the future.
      I think i may have to replace my wireless card ( based on a few google results) which i'm fine with as long as i can see it working without just so i know i won't waste money
      Specs:
      Cpu: i5 7200u
      GPU: HD 620
      8GB ram
      Wifi card- Intel Wireless 7265 ( Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) )
      Motherboard - HP 81D2 & BIOS version is f.56

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Pro and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8700k, 9600k, 9700k, 9900k
       
      GPU's

      CLOVER  FOLDER
      Use this folder with fully patched DSDT
      Z390 Pro DSDT EFI.zip   (Updated 21 July 2019)
       
       
      ADDITIONAL DSDT's  (A big thanks to @MaLd0n for compiling these extra DSDT's)
      If your using a Vega 56/64 or Radion VII then use this DSDT (already installed in my EFI)
      DSDT.VEGA.VII.zip
      If your using a RX Series or Nvidia GPU then use this DSDT
      DSDT.RXxxx.NVIDIA.zip
       
       
      To Create Your Own Patched DSDT Message @MaLd0n using the link bellow
      https://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&amp;t=1131 
      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)
