[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

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!

      hi folks! i'm just checking for opinions here on a Clover based install of High Sierra. currently i can't boot directly from the internal drive on my hackbook, an ASUS ROG GL502-VS laptop (with the replaced WiFi card), though i can boot from the USB bootloader/installer

      i installed 10.13.6 fine using a prepared vanilla installer on HFS+ (not APFS), but my configuration is somewhat unusual. i have two drives. the first SSD has the Windows system, the second has two partitions with the 2nd partition holding the macOS system. when i ran Clover installer i could not use the UEFI option to copy to the EFI partition because it couldn't find one on that drive. so it installed the EFI folder on the root of the macOS partition instead.
       
      however, after a bit of tinkering around, i found out that there is an existing EFI partition on the primary drive called SYSTEM. it has a EFI folder and underneath that is a Windows folder, a Boot folder, and one called APPLE. i can mount this partition with Clover Configurator and copy files to it, but i don't know if this is a good or risky solution. i was thinking i would manually copy the CLOVER folder and the uefi64.boot file to this partition , making sure not to overwrite anything existing. using the UEFI setup, i can create a boot path from the SYSTEM partition to the Clover boot file, but i'm just curious if this is a useful solution or not, and i don't want to ruin the existing Windows 10 installation for sure. any advice appreciated!

      I've just got my hack. to were I'm happy with it.
      its been a long road. and up to this point was always evolving. and from the software side. id Like to thank EVERYONE that as given there time help and support  in my Hackintosh adventure.
      the hardware side. as at times been a bit of a challenge (learning to bent stainless tubing) I got the powder coating done by a local company
      Please comment. Had to change the tubing around

      only have the disc that you plan to install macOS Mojave connected to the Aorus Pro, disconnect any other Windows / Linux or data drives, external drives from your Aorus Pro. Windows / Linux and data drives can be connected after successful installation of macOS Mojave
      If you have more than 16 GB of memory, then install macOS Mojave with just 16GB, you can later add any additional memory. Install memory modules in slots DDR4_A1  and DDR4_B1. This build has the Wi-Fi combo PCI-e card installed in slot PCIEX1_3
      with its 9 pin USB cable attached to motherboard header F_USB2. 
       
      If using the Corsair H100i v2 AIO cooler with USB cable connected to motherboard header F_USB1, you will need to enable hot-patch ( explained in guide ) in config.plist for working sleep, wake from sleep will only work by pressing Power Button.
      However, If not using the Corsair H100i v2  USB cable, then you have wake from sleep using Keyboard / Mouse or Power Button.
      The Corsair USB cable is only required if using Corsair Link software in Windows for custom Fan or LED settings.
       
      Install macOS Mojave on its own physical drive, so do not try and install macOS Mojave onto a free partition on a disc that contains Windows.
      Remove any Thunderbolt cards, Thunderbolt card can be reinserted after installation.  Double check your BIOS settings are the same as this guide. 
       
       
      AMD Vega card's  will work with this guide, but If you plan to use a Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 then please read @AudioGod ==>post  regarding the Sapphire Pulse 56.
       
       
       
      Following are unsupported / problematic
       
      • Intel Optane ( if you have this, remove it before installation of macOS Mojave )
       
      • Samsung EVO Plus drives ( firmware problem with macOS )
       
      • XFX Radeon RX 580
       
      • NVIDIA GTX / RTX not supported in macOS Mojave
       
      • Fenvi T919 Wireless Card, it seems Bluetooth is not working out of box for some users ( Maybe the USB port attached to Fenvi bluetooth is wrongly configured, or the SSDT-UIAC.aml port connector was not configured as Internal, or maybe some other reason )
         Save yourself a headache --->  RECOMMENDED WIFI CARD WORKING OUT OF BOX (OOB)  is ---> ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI With Bluetooth 4.0 PCI-Express (PCI-E) BCM943602CS 
       
       
       
      Q - WILL THIS GUIDE WORK WITH MY NON AORUS Z390 PRO MOTHERBOARD ?
      A - Possibly may work with other Z390 chipset motherboards. See very bottom of page for PRE & POST - INSTALL AORUS X 390 EFI's ( will require USB SSDT fix  )
       
      Q - I notice you have the Aorus Pro Z390 version, will this guide work with Aorus Pro Z390 WiFi version ?
      A - Yes, but onboard Intel / Intel CNVi WIFII /Bluetooth will not work with macOS and you will have to disable HS14 for Bluetooth to function properly on BCM943602CS or BCM94331CD WiFi/Bluetooth Combo cards ( more info at bottom of guide) .

      PART 5 – CUSTOMIZE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER FOR AORUS Z390 PRO
       
      Replace Clover EFI folder with PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  OR  if NO graphics card installed in PCIe slot, then use PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - Intel UHD630.zip( Video below ) 
       
      • Install ESP Mounter Pro v1.9
      • Using ESP Mounter Pro, Mount ESP on disk2s1 ( Your disk name may be different )
       

       

       
       
       
      • Open mounted EFI partition found on desktop
      • Copy all the contents from Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder
      • Replace USB EFI folder with all the contents inside the Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder.
       
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 6 – INSTALL MAC OS MOJAVE ON INTERNAL DRIVE
       
      INSTALL NOTE
       
      ENSURE BIOS: Above 4G Decoding is set to Disabled 
      if Above 4G decoding is set to enabled then macOS Mojave install will freeze at 2 mins remaining and will not shut down properly!!!!
       
      Please be patient during install, so when install gets to 2 or 3 mins remaining then it may take extra time. Be ready to boot from UEFI USB installer by pressing F12 when install initiates restarts. 

      • INSERT USB INSTALLER INTO THE USB 2.0 PORT  
       
       
       Here is a walkthrough of the full process using the macOS Mojave USB Installer on the Aorus Z390 Pro. 
       
       
       
       
      • Power on PC and press F12• Choose bootable USB drive from boot menu.
       
       
       
      • Install macOS Mojave to internal solid state or hard drive.
       
       
       
      When system returns to the Clover boot menu choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      At next restart, press F12 and boot from external UEFI USB device and choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      Proceed with macOS Mojave install
       
       
      macOS Mojave is now installed, but it can only boot at this moment thanks to FakeSMC and Clover on the Mojave USB flash drive installer.
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 7 – MAKE AORUS Z390 PRO INTERNAL DRIVE BOOTABLE
       
      Make internal drive bootable ( Video below )
       
      So far, the Aorus Pro can only boot the internal system drive with the aid of the Mojave USB Installer.
      To boot from the internal system drive without the installer: 
       
      Download and install Clover with RC Scripts on target volume.  
      If your Aorus Pro Z390 has AMD RX 580 then copy the EFI folder from inside POST-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition.          OR
      If your Aorus Pro Z390 has no graphics card installed in PCIe slot, then copy the EFI folder from inside POST-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - Intel UHD630.zip  folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition.   
       

       
       
       
      • Remove USB Mojave installer and shut down and restart.
       
      Aorus Hackintosh should now be able to boot to macOS Mojave, Done, well almost ! 
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 8 – ENABLE IMESSAGES & FACETIME 
       
       
      // UPDATE 21st MAY 2019
       
      Possibly Clover Configurator now automatically populates correct values for working iMessages when you select an SMBIOS.  
       

       
      After selecting SMBIOS, example iMac19,1 for Aorus Pro with RX580 ( image above ) then go to Apple and ensure you have the "serial number is not valid " message. Done!
       
      If you still have problems connecting to iMessage, test and ensure that AirDrop is working, then follow instructions inside spoiler. 

       
       
      • Mount internal drive EFI/ESP partition
      • Go to folder CLOVER → drivers64UEFI 
      • Place both EMUVariableUefi-64.efi inside → drivers64UEFI
       
       
      Using Clover Configurator, add the following argument to config.plist using Clover Configurator.
       
      • Slide = 0
       

       
       
      Shutdown and then press power on button on PC.
       
      • You should now be able to Log into iCloud, iMessages and FaceTime
       
       
       
      • NOW delete EMUVariableUefi-64.efi from CLOVER → drivers64UEFI Folder 
      • Shutdown and restart Aorus Pro hackintosh. iMessages etc is now operational without EMUVariableUefi-64.efi ( EMUVariableUefi-64.efi only needed to initialise iMessages )
       
       
      // UPDATE 22nd May 2019 
       
      • It seems that there are no "Couldn't allocate runtime area"  errors when continuing to use EMUVariableUefi-64.efi since updating to macOS Mojave 10.14.5 and using Clover version r4920. 
      • It is important to delete EMUVariableUefi-64.efi, this will avoid very intermittent boot errors such as: “Couldn’t allocate runtime area”  post errors.
       
       
       
       
      PART 9 – ENABLE TRIM for Solid State Flash Drives
       
      Open Terminal and enter the following command:
      sudo trimforce enable
