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

Trying to get swiping with 2 fingers on trackpad forward & backward in Safari to work.  Other gestures work fine.

 

Thanks for a great guide!

 

Happy New Year

I have the exact same challenge.

 

I've managed through ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext 4.7 b5 get everything working except for the forward/backward in Safari. It does however work in Finder (with 3 finger swipe motion instead of 2).

 

I have attached my Info.plist in case someone else might be interested in my configuration.

 

EDIT: Added attachment as .zip file

Info 2017-01-02.plist.zip

dunno why, never got that working, too. PS2Smart was always incompatible because of the OS-language, official doesnt do it without any reason.

So are you using VoodoPS2

Hey @wmchris thanks for reposting your tutorial. I think it was really disrespectful what they did to you at TMX, glad to see you here.

Anyway, just wanted to share some things about the DA200 adapter. Mine came with the Realtek 8153 GBE, and it didn't worked out of the box.

I had to install this driver: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=56&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

That I found on this gist: https://gist.github.com/MadLittleMods/3005bb13f7e7178e1eaa9f054cc547b0

Also the USB port on my adapter isn't working with the new hot plug patch (All the rest wok just fine). Maybe is because of the Realtek drive? didn't test before installing it.

I attached a ioreg saved while the adapter was connected with a pen drive in it's USB port, if something seems wrong please let me know.

And the DA200 link on the tutorial seems broken, here's a working one: http://accessories.ap.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=sg&l=en&s=bsd&cs=sgbsd1&sku=470-abnl

Hi guys, anyone tried the latest XPS 9550 1.2.18 BIOS with MacOS yet? Reddit comments overall give it good reviews.

depends. on my 4K it fixed the PWM flickering. on my 1080p version it made it worse.

on my 4k it didnt change anything regarding the fan speed, on my 1080 it made the computer in fact silent.

i doubt there are different versions available. mine worked out of the box. no need to install any driver. thats strange.

ok fact: my DA200 is different. I've a billboard USB device, which is missing at your setup. So they must be different. Damn it Dell!

Dear community,

just moved here and this is my first post.

Thanks wmchris to keep on sharing all this work!

 

what exactly is the problem about hibernation? I've read that even with Ubuntu there are issues, but if you log in (blindly with black screen) and push the brightness up, it should wake up correctly. Is this a possible solution?

 

@LanyP

I'm planning to use this system mostly with an USB soundcard, do the behaviour of sound disappearing randomly refers to the sound coming from you usb device or the internal soundcard of the pc?

 

Thank you again, kind regards

Enrico

Enrico

So far I've only had audio problems with my audio interface, but I did notice that after changing the output a few times the sound becomes more stable. For me this is the last thing that really should ben fixed to get my system how I want it.

Hello, thanks for you reply, i'll be using the pc primarily as an audio workstation, so that's kind of annoying.

What USB interface are you using? have you had the same problem with osx 10.11?

 

Does anybody know if the sleep issue is also present with 10.11? I don't see it mentioned in the el cap guide....

Thanks, regards

E

there is no sleep issue, there is a hibernation issue.

Hibernation = Suspend to Disk

Sleep = Suspend to Ram

And yes, it's on both. Suspend to Disk can (and will) corrupt your disk drive if you're using the integrated original M.2 SSD.

I'm also using it primarily as an audio workstation. I have the m-audio mtrack 2x2, but I'm sure the problem isn't the interface but our hackintosh configuration. This is also my first time installing osx on this laptop and I went for Sierra instead of El capitan. So I don't know how that would work out.

 

Tomorrow I will do some more testing for how long the audio disappears, how I fix it etc..And then I'll let you know.

to be honest: unknown. noone tried that yet and i cant do it, because i dont own a hynix ssd to hack it myself.

 

Thanks for the great guide, just curious how likely is it to get a kext or some work around for Hynes ssd?

Thanks!

Thanks for your replies, I bought this laptop used earlier this week and I'll do the osx installation this weekend. I'll report my experience with my rme usb sound card asap.

 

Thanks wmchris for explaining the difference between sleep and hibernation!

Hi

 

I have a 2016 Dell XPS 9550 with 16GB Ram and 512 GB Nvram SSD. Using the latest version from the github repo with clover and a Sierra installation on a 16GB USB I can get the Mac installation running, but when I try to install or open disk utility then my internal harddrive will not show up. I can only see USB drives.

 

I had a similar problem when installing Ubuntu previously on the same computer, but then went into the BIOS settings and changed over to ACHI from RAID controller for the harddrives. After this the harddrive was detected for the ubuntu installation. On top of that I have disabled secure boot and some other settings. I've also tried other flavors of pre made XPS 9550 Clover configurations without luck (not even being able to launch the MacOS X installation GUI).

 

Does anyone have any hints as to what I need to do in order to trouble shoot this? I'd really like to have Mac running on my Dell computer as my old Mac is on it's last leg.

Hello @magnusart

 

Welcome.

 

 

I suspect that you have an NVMe SSD?

 

Because of that you need to apply the NVMe patches even to your USB installer.

 

If you've a NVM SSD Drive, you need to install NVMe-Hackr with SSDT Spoofing (enables easier system upgrading from appstore). Dont do this if you use the HDD version of the Dell or you use your M.2 port for something different than a SSD (for ex. a UMTS modem)

 

sudo cp ./Post-Install/AD-Kexts/HackrNVMe/SSDT-Hackr.aml /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/

sudo cp -r ./Post-Install/AD-Kexts/HackrNVMe/HackrNVMeFamilySpoof-10_12_2.kext /Library/Extensions/

 

But instead of Library/Extensions that would be your /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12 or Other

 

 

You can read more about what you are doing and trying to achieve at Rehabmans GitHub here: README.md

that's not correct. the delivered config.plist for installation has the temporary patches in it. If nothing shows up then it's either something wrong configured in the EFI configuration, or it's a hynix SSD. Check the vendor from within linux or windows. If it is a hynix, your only chance is to swap it.

 

EDIT: but you can try the fix above anyway. you cant do any harm with it, and maybe some spoofing is everything thats needed to make it run?

Thanks for the reply. Below is the relevant output from sudo lspci -vvnn. I've also looked into the PCIO Path further below. I think it should fit the current config?

 

I guess I'll give the scripts a spin.

The just announced Dell XPS 15 9560 has Intel HD 630 graphics.  I'm thinking of upgrading.  I don't think the HD 630 Graphics are supported yet but they probably will be in the near future?

 

Thoughts?

 

Thanks

sorry pal: vendor id 1c5c is hynix. No chance, except you want to switch the M.2 SSD. But if you want to help me fiddling with it a lil bit... (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319929-pikeralphas-nvme-patch-with-hynix-m2-ssds/)

it's only a lil bit faster, but noone tested it, yet - @rehabman thinks it should work. no guarantee. But we know for sure that you'll HAVE TO (!) replace the wireless card as well as the NVMe, because (as far as leaks can be trusted) the 9560 will be using Hynix M.2 drives exclusively and will use the Rivet Killer Network Wifi adaptor - both not hackintosh compatible.

Too bad! :( Well, at least I know it's not going to work. Spent better part of 2 days on this. Are there any further information around hynix and why it won't work are there work ongoing that will likely change in the future? Thanks for the help so far even if this might be the end of the journey for me.

Apple has only a driver for their own NVMe devices. PikerAlpha hacked it and added the posibility to use this driver on non apple OEM SSDs. But this hack doesnt work with hynix devices.

 

Because i never had one i cant tell you why. It's possible that it can be easily fixed, but this requires at least some amount of time and skill.

 

The good thing is: you can easily swap the M.2 SSD for something compatible.

Thank you for all the work you have done on this project. I have been following this closely, and am close to purchase.

My primary work is audio post, I am looking to use a Thunderbolt audio I/O (Focusrite) with this setup.

Anyone gone that route already and can confirm success with a Thunderbolt interface? Thank you so much for your time!

      *** I have started another thread for installing Catalina on the Dell Latitude E6410.  If you were thinking of installing Mojave, but would prefer to skip right to Catalina, click here. ***
       
      I was inspired by @duduclx post here for installing El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6410, so I decided to install Mojave 10.14.5 and subsequently 10.14.6.  Everything works perfectly (including sleep).  I'm starting this thread hoping to help others install Mojave on their E6410s.  A brief installation guide is provided later in this first post.  The interested reader is encouraged to read the other posts in this thread to see how this solution evolved and to learn additional tips/details not provided in this first post (including dual-booting with macOS and Windows).
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) MacOS: Mojave 10.14.6 (APFS) (Patched with DosDude Mojave Patcher 1.3.3) MacModel: MacBookPro 6,2 (LPCB._DSM.Name "pci8086,3b09") Kexts: Lilu 1.3.6, VoodooHDA 2.9.2, AirportBrcmFixup 2.0.0, IntelMausiEthernet 2.4.1d1, ACPIBatteryManager 1.90.1, BrcmPatchRam2.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, VoodooPS2Controller (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad" version - release 6 developed by @Dr. Hurt and compiled by @bronxteck), not the original version), USBInjectAll (with custom SSDT-UIAC), VoodooSDHC.kext (configured as shown here). Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (with AirportBrcmFixup.kext) CLOVER (Legacy): R4961  
      Configuration items that may be different from what you have seen in other E6410 configurations
      Addition of _OFF and _ON methods to _PTS and _WAK methods respectively (to control discrete graphics in order to enable sleep/wake) LPCB._DSM patched with device-id "3b09" AND "name", "pci8086,3b09" for native Nehalem power management with MacBookPro 6,2 ECDV renamed to EC so that AppleBusPowerController loads AGP.VID._DSM patched with device-id "0a29" so that AppleGraphicsPowerManagement loads No CLOVER Generate P or Generate C States (with the correct LPCB._DSM and MacBookPro 6,2, these CLOVER options are unnecessary for this architecture and only limit max multiplier and reduce number of P states) DSDT patched to include HDAU device (device-id 0x0be3)  
      What is NOT working:
      Display brightness can be controlled with keyboard keys, but cannot be controlled with slider in Display settings. Graphics Power Management - AGPM loads (because 10de,0a29 device is injected), but there's no evidence that 3100m frequency and voltage is changing.
        What is NOT tested:
      Smartcard Reader eSata (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Firewire Port (it does appear in the Network settings, just haven't tried it) Microphone Jack PC Card Slot (I have this disabled in my BIOS)  
      What IS working:
      SLEEP IS WORKING! Everything else not mentioned above.   Speedstep/CPUPowerManagement is perfect, system temps are low, CPU multiplier operates as expected, battery life is long Shutdown is fast Display/graphics acceleration is perfect (thanks to DosDude's Mojave patcher) Brightness (adjusted with brightness keys on keyboard) works perfectly Battery Manager works (battery status is displayed in menu bar) simply by installing ACPIBatterManager.kext. Wi-Fi (after changing to Broadcom BCM94352HMB and installing AirportBrcmFixup.kext) Audio (volume adjustable, volume indicator appears in menu bar).  Switched to VoodooHDA from AppleALC after AppleALC caused slow boot due to "IOHDACodecFunction timeout." Ethernet port (with IntelMausiEthernet.kext) Broadcom BCM20702A0 Bluetooth (with BrcmPatchRam2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext) Optical Drive External VGA (with corrected NVCAP.  Need NVCAP 04000000 00000100 0E000000 00000007 00000000 (credit: here) for working external VGA display. Headphone jack Display Port (tested using DP > HDMI adapter) Camera SD Card Reader  
      Known issues and their solutions (These issues have all been resolved, with the solutions incorporated into the attached config files.  The issues are listed here for historical purposes and no further work is needed unless stated otherwise).
      Laptop does not sleep on lid close.  Solution is to add Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) in the DSDT.  This is solved in the attached DSDT. Leaving this for historical purposes, but the CLOVER USBFix is no longer necessary after finding that I had incorrectly applied the DSDT _DSM patch for Device (EHC1).  The CLOVER USBFix is not needed after fixing the DSDT..  AAPL,clock-id and device_type do not appear in IORegistry for EHC1.  Solution is to use CLOVER on-the-fly patching/fixing/renaming for EHC1 and EHC2.  Thank you, @feartech, for this tip. ALPS trackpad performance is not good with the "standard" VoodooPS2Controller.kext that I initially used.  Switching to the "Refined ALPS TouchPad driver" is a big improvement.  I've implemented and tested this on my system.  The ALPS version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext mixes up a few keys.  Need to switch the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) and change keyboard type to ISO European. This configuration (captured in the attached config files) uses an injected device-id (10de,0a29) for NVidia 3100m to get AGPM to load.  While I haven't observed any performance differences, a better approach may be to inject AGPM properties for device 10de,0a6c (the actual device-id for the 3100m).  This AGPM method is discussed later in this thread.  I have briefly tested this "FakeSMC.kext method" for injecting AGPM attributes without any noticeable changes in laptop/graphics behavior. IOHWControl is not loaded under AGPM (Should be AGP > VID > NVDA,Display-A@0 > NVDATesla > AGPM > gpu-control > IOHWControl as viewed in IORegistryExplorer).  It is loaded on a real MacBookPro6,2 running Mojave and is loaded on this Dell Latitude E6410 running High Sierra.  If I "Inject NVidia" via CLOVER, IOHWControl loads properly. The Dell Latitude DSDT (BIOS A17) has a bug in Method (GNOT).  In the method, the expression  If (LOr (LGreater (OSYS, 0x07D0), LLess (OSYS, 0x07D6))) always evaluates to TRUE, so the patched DSDT has no dependency on the value of OSYS.  I suspect that LOr should be replaced with LAnd, so that this expression is TRUE for variants of Windows 2001 and False for any other OS.  While this may have no affect on MacOS, it makes one wonder how such an obvious bug made it through Dell QA and is still present in BIOS A17.  Also makes one wonder whether the sleep problem (which no one has solved) was fixed in Windows to address another DSDT bug. The assigned value of ACOS and OSYS in the DSDT are conditional on the operating system.  There is no condition for "Darwin."  The solution is to add a condition for "Darwin" (making it equivalent to one of the defined operating systems (e.g. Linux, Win7, etc).  The attached config hard-codes ACOS and OSYS values equivalent to those for Linux.  Another way to handle this (different from the method employed in the attached config files) might be to override _OSI with XOSI (defined in a custom SSDT). The portType of the Internal Bluetooth device is portType=0 which, according to Rehabman's comments in SSDT-UIAC-All.dsl, is an external USB 2 port.  This should be an internal USB port (portType=2).  I learned through trial and error that the HUB1 and HUB2 definitions in Rehabman's SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl apply to the ports on the EHCx USB hubs.  The solution is to include the HUB1 definition in SSDT-UIAC.dsl and change portType to 2 for HP15.  This change doesn't appear to affect/fix sleep, but it may prevent instant wake if we get sleep working. There are minor differences between a real MacBookPro6,2 IORegistry dump and this HackBookPro6,2 IORegistry dump that can be resolved with simple DSDT edits.  I am now running with these changes, but haven't found these changes to make any difference in operational behavior.
      Rename Device (AC) -> Device (ADP1) Remove UID from Device (HPET) Add compatible ID "PNP0C01" to Device (HPET) Change ADP1:_STA from 0x0F to 0xFFFFFFFF Enable Ambient Light Sensor and renamed to Device (ALS0) from Device (ALS) Add compatible ID "smc-als" to ALS0 Rename LID -> LID0 Change "name" definitions to Buffers in _DSM methods Rename Device (PBTN) to PWRB Rename Device (SBTN) to (SLPB) Change HDAU.hda-gfx from "onboard-1" to "onboard-2" Change GFX0.hda-gfx from "onboard-1" to "onboard-2" Sleep / Wake does not work with the basic DSDT edits.  I have discovered that Sleep / Wake can be made to work by adding discrete graphics _OFF and _ON methods to _PTS and _WAK methods respectively (borrowed the concept and code from a working E6430 DSDT: Credit here: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/9248-working-sleep-on-intel-hd-and-nvidia-nvs-on-dell-latitude-e6430-optimus-enabled-or-disabled/page/6/. The Clover boot arg should be changed to "darkwake=0" for reasons explained by @holyfield in this thread.  Leaving this for historical purposes: LCD screen is blank when waking laptop by opening lid (screen is not blank when waking with power button).  Solution is to add darkwake=8 to CLOVER boot args.  Thank you @Hervé for this tip.  
      Brief Installation Guide:
      Configure BIOS (version A17) 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;  Create your MacOS installer USB (Use DosDude's Mojave Patcher for Mojave) (start with High Sierra and not Mojave if you're new to hackintosh). Install CLOVER (Legacy) on installer USB using attached EFI as your guide for patched ACPI, kexts and config.plist Install MacOS to your SSD.  When you run DosDude's Mojave Patcher, DO NOT install LegacyUSBInjector.kext - you're going to use Rehabman's USBInjectAll.kext.  Also, do not install the DosDude SIP kext (you're using CLOVER to manage SIP). Install the following kexts in /Library/Extensions:  ACPIBatteryManager.kext, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakeSMC.kext, FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext, FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, Lilu.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad driver," not the original), VoodooSDHC.kext (configured as shown here). Switch Command and Option keys to compensate for Refined ALPS driver issue (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys).  Also change keyboard type to ISO European to fix the [ ` ~ ] key (to the left of the "1" (one) key. Install VoodooHDA Install HWMonitor application  
      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 After applying Mojave updates, HWMonitor may not display discrete graphics attributes.  On systems with multiple displays, a second (or third display) may not be active after applying the Mojave update.  The solution to this is to run "sudo kextcache -i /" (in a terminal window) and reboot.  This will usually fix the issue.  If the issue is not fixed, run DosDude's Post Install Utility, apply the Legacy Graphics Patch, reboot and then run "sudo kextcache -i /" if necessary.  
      Credits
      In addition to those mentioned in this first post and in subsequent posts in this thread, much of this solution for the Latitude E6410 was made possible by the numerous contributions of @RehabMan.  I hope he's doing well, wherever he is.  Hopefully he has long since forgotten what a PIA I was (and still am) as I was (and still am) learning hackOS.

      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 10.15.3 (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 v14 for sound.
       
      Steps to install Catalina on a Dell Latitude E6410 (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m)
      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 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 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.  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) 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: 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 Re-install VoodooHDA if necessary (I installed using the Classic method) 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
      (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). 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. (Work-around - no permanent solution yet) Cannot turn on Bluetooth after shutting-down with Bluetooth off.  Work-around is to leave Bluetooth on.  I don't use Bluetooth and don't mind, so this will likely be solved by someone else.  If you experience this issue and can't turn-on Bluetooth, I have found that putting the laptop to sleep (Fn-F1) and then waking the laptop restores proper operation of Bluetooth.  I have posted a problem description, logs and problem reporting files in this thread for help with this problem. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop does not sleep when closing lid.  Solution is to add a Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) in the DSDT.  No surprise that the Latitude E6410 has yet another incomplete ACPI implementation.  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

      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)  
      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 XX-MASKED-XX values to your own) kexts/Other (remove all other kext folders) Remove christmas and new year folders from themes (if present)  
      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 .
