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

I'm wondering if someone had/has issues with one of the USB ports?

The one on the right works fine, but the one on the left is "laggy" (i.e. when I plug an external mouse there, it stops from time to time, it looks like it lose communication temporarily), it's not reliable.

Probably I did something wrong on my setup, but I can't find what I've done wrong.

sounds more like a loose connection than a software bug.

It might be... everything that I plug in that USB port doesn't work well, if I plug a pen drive or external disk it will disconnect after a few seconds. I thought I've messed up with some settings. Thanks for the reply.

This is a bit off topic, but it might be useful for some people.

Last week my laptop's battery was swelling at a point that I couldn't even use the trackpad.

I was browsing for a new battery when I came across people telling that Dell is replacing XPS 15 9550 batteries for free, since this is a known issue. I can confirm that this is true for Australia, I got a new battery for free and a technician came to my place to replace it (but if your battery is not swelling yet, they will send the battery by mail and you can replace it yourself).

Have a look at Dell Product Bulletin website for more information (need your service tag):
https://www.dellproduct.com/

From their product bulletin:
 

 

Bulletin Name:  Precision 5510 and XPS 9550 swelling system battery

Dell has recently noticed that certain customers who purchased Dell XPS 9550 or Precision 5510 system(s) may be experiencing swelling or bulging system batteries.

According to our records, your Dell System(s) is impacted by this issue.  As part of a proactive effort, Dell would like to offer a replacement battery for each applicable service tag.

Please inspect your system and batteries, if you identify symptoms of a swollen battery such as bulging of the system chassis or palm rest or if the battery has become stuck or lodged in the system it is considered a damaged battery.  Visit Dell support at www.dell.com/support and select the contact method that best suits your needs to request a replacement/ support for damaged batteries and reference QNA44171.
 
 If your battery is not swollen, please use the process below to request a replacement battery.

Please select “Continue” at the bottom of this page to request a replacement battery for your system(s).
 
The battery is internal to the system but can be easily accessed and replaced using a #5 TORX head and #2 Phillips head screw driver following the procedure below or included in the Dell XPS 9550 or Precision 5510 Owner's Manual available online at the Dell support page.
  
If you do wish to replace the battery yourself please select “Self Install” under the Installation Type section on the next page.  The replacement battery(s) will be shipped directly to the address you provide. 

Should you feel you are unable to replace the battery yourself Dell will arrange to have a certified technician replace the battery at no cost to you. 

To request a Dell service technician install your replacement battery, please select “Service” under the Installation Type section on the next page.  The replacement battery(s) will be brought by the Dell technician at the time of service. 
Onsite service may take 4 to 6 weeks to schedule and will require the system be available for service during normal business hours Monday – Friday.

For the Self Install option Dell requires that you return the old battery.  Please follow the return process outlined in the documents shipped with your replacement battery. 

Should you have any questions during this process please select “Contact Dell” at the top of any page and put “Dell XPS 9550 or Precision 5510 battery packs swelling Issue” in the subject line along with the applicable service tag/s in the body of your email.

Great tutorial! My issue is reformatting my Samsung PM951 SSD. It errors out. Can't delete partitions or reformat. I have used gpart to delete and reformat SSD but still can't get SSD to right format to install os. Disk utility just errors out. Hope someone can help. Thanks.

Samsung Drives are a pain in the.....

Thanks for the response. It's strange that windows works fine on it. Do you recommend a dive that had the most compatibility ? Thanks again for your help.

FYI - Dell has removed the latest BIOS update from their website, following Intel's adsival, that the Microcode updates for their products where foobar. The latest, right now, is 1.5.7.

I will downgrade. This also means that outside of OS protections, Intel does not deliver protection from Spectre 1 & 2 and Meltdown.

 

What an f'n chaos.

the beta? nah. but the 10.13.2 security patch works w/o a problem.

Just wanted to let you all know that I tried bios 1.6.1. I couldn't detect any problems. But it appears that dell has pulled this bios. So I will be reverting back to 1.5.1.

 

Also I've tried 10.13.2. then also updating to the 10.13.2 supplement updates also worked fine.

 

I will be attempting to downgrade my bios to 1.5.1 then applying 10.13.3 tonight.

Will report back later.

does the backlight slider work for you after the upgrade?

EDIT: kernel caches are required to work, so after cache recreation backlight works

Which backlight slider? The one in control panel? Which version are you referring to?

I’m downgrading bios now and will be going to 10.13.3.

 

Yes I got the same brightness keyboard keys stopped working. Just tried to flush the kernel cache like you suggested now it’s hung. Lol. Reboot and hope it works.

 

so the first boot after the update (I had to download the update seperately, app store came up with update and i downloaded 2gb then reboot and it didn't work). So had to download the update seperately.

First boot it booted, but the brightness controls didn't work... so I tried to flush the kernel cache. This lead me to hanging on boot. So I went into recovery to rebuild kernel cache again. This made it come back.

 

However the brightness still doesnt work. So I'm going to try and recopy the kext, from the guide (post installation section).

I’m on 10.13.3 now. I still can get my brightness controls to work.
Even after rebuilding the kernel caches.

I’m getting some complains about invalid signatures what appears to say it was allowed.

I did the commands from the guide to flush the kernel cache.
Any ideas on how to fix?

 

 

EDIT: I have  no idea what i've done. After a few flushes, the brightness control is working  again. I tried to allow unsigned code again through that spctl command. And after the last flush it seems to have fixed it. I'm not really sure.

 

Are there any advantages in going to the new Clover, also the github repo seems to have been updated with a few new things, something about nvram and aptio v3..... should i move to those?

see: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/tree/10.13/10.13/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/other

also check your slide parameter. >200 is very dubious and 33 is one too low.

Where should I put SSD patch in config.plist

I put patch in Patches sector.

if it's correct, It's not working for me. I have Hynix PC300 256GB SSD

you added it to the DSDT patches, this is a Kext Patch.

umm.. so.. Where should I put this script? (sry, I'm beginner)

I tried put in KextsToPatch sector. but still can't see SSD.

Thanks for reply.

where to look? http://bfy.tw/GWUc (scnr ;-) ). Never had this issue before. seems like a bad usb install media.

Thank you.

 

seems that the installer USB was bed. redid it with other method and it worked fine.

 

ALSO, unchecked slide=0 at the plist file with OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi   in the CLOVER/drivers64UEFI - made the install to work.

 

 

 

Had some problems with reformatting the  Samsung 960 Pro

 

 

 

Thanks for the response. It's strange that windows works fine on it. Do you recommend a dive that had the most compatibility ? Thanks again for your help.

 

 reycingef9-   Don't know if that helps, I had problems with formatting and mounting and so on, with diskutil in the installer, in diskutil above drive list on the drives there is an option to "show all devices" then you see the master drive and you can partition and reformat with no problems.

      PREAMBLE - BEFORE YOU START 
       
      Here detailed, is all the  steps towards building a successful and stable Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh, if you are a first time Hackintosher, this guide will have you quickly up and running with the Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh. To rule out potential problems from the go,
      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 or RAM installed, you can later add any additional memory. Install memory modules in slots DDR4_A1  and DDR4_B1.
       
      This build has a recommended Wi-Fi combo PCI-e card installed in slot PCIEX1_3 with its 9 pin USB cable attached to motherboard header F_USB2.  ( ensure WiFi card is seated properly in PCIe slot and cable is firmly attached to WiFi card and 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.
       
      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. 
       
       
       
      Following are unsupported / problematic
       
      • Intel Optane ( if you have this, remove it before installation of macOS Mojave )
       
      • Samsung EVO Plus drives ( ensure you update Plus drive to latest firmware to avoid problems )
       
      • XFX Radeon RX 580
       
      • NVIDIA GTX / RTX not supported in macOS Mojave
       
       
       
      Q - WILL THIS GUIDE WORK WITH MY NON AORUS Z390 PRO MOTHERBOARD ?
      A - Possibly, though you may have to create your own USBPorts fix. 
       
      Q - I notice you have the Aorus Pro Z390 version, will this guide work with Aorus Pro Z390 WiFi version ?
      A - Possibly, but onboard Intel / Intel CNVi WIFII /Bluetooth will not work with macOS and you will have to disable HS14 for Bluetooth to function properly. 
       
      Q - Can I use my AMD Vega Card ?
      A - Yes, 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.

      PART 5 – CUSTOMIZE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER FOR AORUS Z390 PRO
       
      Replace Clover EFI folder with PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.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.  
      Copy the EFI folder from inside Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.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. 

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 9 – ENABLE TRIM for Solid State Flash Drives
       
      Open Terminal and enter the following command:
      sudo trimforce enable

      Hello Friends, how are ya?

      Could you help me with a problem?

      I followed some guides like: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic ... coffeelake -dsdt /

      and the installation of high Sierra 10.13.6 (17G8030) and nvidia webdrivers (correspondent to OS version) went smoothly, the problem starts when I try to boot the GPU.

      Hardware:
      MOBO: Aorus B360M gaming 3 (rev.1)
      CPU: i5 8400
      GPU: GTX 1060 OC Galax redblack

      BIOS:
      Fast boot - disabled
      windows 8/10 features - other os
      lan pxe - disabled
      storage boot option - UEFI
      other pci devices - UEFI
       
      Initial display output - PCie 1 slot
      Intel's Platform Trust Technology (PTT) - disabled
      sata mode selection - AHCI
      XHCI hand off - enabled
      VT-d - disabled
      internal graphics - auto


      The problem is:
      I can log into the system normally without using my nvidia GPU but when I boot the system with the flags for webdrivers to work I fall into the login screen but it keeps flashing, I can see the mouse and I can move it but the screen flashes and the following error appears when the screen goes "black": IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0. I searched for this error on the internet and tried to solve but to no avail so far.

      If someone can help me I would be extremely grateful! thanks in advance!
