Has anyone managed to install MacOs on a Dell Precision T5600 Workstation?

Sorry, the specs info aren't define because I don't build the machine yet.

I'm looking for someone around here with experience in these models.

Any DSDT or SSDT.

I want to know things about the BIOS configuration, or if it can give some problem with SpeedStep, Sleep, Hibernation etc.

If it is better to install clover or chameleon, boot in UEFI or Legacy mode, if there is any problem with USB 3.0, or anything.

Thank you very much.

keep in mind that this kind of chipsets aren't supported by macOS natively and could be problematic, one user on the italian subforum tried to install on this machine and gave up!

Thank you, can you share a link of thee thread you mention?

I don't know why you say aren't supported, I understood that it is the same or similar as MacPro6,1.

MacPro6,1 are not Sandy Bridge-based, they're Ivy Bridge platforms.

 

Ok, I know it, it's similar, same chipset but not the same cpu generation.

I managed to get Yosemite and Sierra running on a Dell T5610. Working through a few issues with it.

 

Here is the write up so far

And my other thread where I was working through an issue.

      Hello
      My system is
      Asus Z170-P Motherboard
      i5 6600K Processor
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4095 MB
      Be-quiet 500W PSU
      Crucial 16 GB 2400 MHz DDR4

      BIOS:

      xHCI Handoff enable
      Serial Port disable
      SATA AHCI mode
      IOAPIC 24-119 Entries (enable y disable) two mode stuck

      I can not build a robust and stable system, The system Sierra is already installed but when I restart or shut down, I get the error Still waiting for root device error, but after too many reboot ( from 2 times to 9) start correctly or other times leave too minutes, with prohibited symbol and finally starts.
      Once started recognised correctly HDD.
      Also I tried with a new  EVO860 nvme SSD , but I have the same problem.
       
       
      I dont know because sometimes yes sometimes no, the system stuck in this error
      I add some information files and logs.
       
      sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
      kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67030 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA2A for kext HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_6.kext

        thank you.


       
      Solution by Rehabman;

      Extracting my native/clean DSDT using Clover F4.
      and check with diff DSDT file.

      My SystemMemory addresses in DSDT are mismatched:

      SPEEDY-NUCatched rehabman$ diff ../origin/ ../patched/|grep SystemMemory
      < OperationRegion (GNVS, SystemMemory, 0xC74EC000, 0x06D5)
      > OperationRegion (GNVS, SystemMemory, 0xC74FE000, 0x06D5)
      < OperationRegion (CPSB, SystemMemory, 0xC6CC0F98, 0x10)
      > OperationRegion (CPSB, SystemMemory, 0xC6CD2F98, 0x10)

      and other mistake in OperationRegion(PNVA,SystemMemory,PNVB,PNVL)

      < Name (PNVB, 0xC74F1018)
      > Name(PNVB,0xC7503018)

      My system after too many month , keep stable the still waiting error no appear again, it seems that the problem was with the memory addresses in my DSDT.

      Hey, long time no post!
       
      Apologies if this has been answered, every time I search I get a timeout on the site and I can't seem to get the search to work
       
      I've been sitting pretty with Yosemite for a while , but a recent hardware upgrade (Audio interface) means I can jump from Yosemite. 

      I've successfully upgraded Clover, then the OS and for the most of it, it seems great. Everything works but the Graphics Driver (NVidia GeForce GTX670.)
       
      I can only boot into Mac if disable the NVIDIA drivers with the boot flag nv_disable=1  however that's not great I end up with one monitor working at 1024 x 768.
       
       
      I've updated the NVIDIA web drivers to the latest my build of sierra can take. 
      I have the boot flag for web driver to be enabled (can't remember off the top of my head.. I'm on the work pc, soon to be home)
       
      Any ideas would be grateful, I spent much of last night and morning on this.

      Many Thanks
       
      UPDATE: I've managed to load successfully, between a combination of changing the SMBIOS to MacBook 14,2 and loading lilukext with NVIDIAgraphicsfixer.
       
      Everything is the same as Yosemite, except I do not have HDMI audio or onboard sound. I do have a dedicated audio interface so I'm not at a true loss.

      Hi Hypervisors,
       
      I have been working to move my Late 2009 Xserve MacOS Server onto Ubuntu 18.04 LTS QEMU/KVM based virtual machine using OVMF and Clover.
       
      After much effort and testing based on the following information from: Kraxel's, Kholia, Gordon Turner and Clover site:
      https://www.kraxel.org/blog/2017/09/running-macos-as-guest-in-kvm/
      https://github.com/kholia/OSX-KVM
      https://gist.github.com/gordonturner/2a2e5ecde5e7860b52e2
      https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home
       
      I have now managed to get OVMF/Clover boot and install of MacOS Sierra.
       
      I started with Ubuntu 16.04 initially but this required download and compile of QEMU to get update of machines to: pc-q35-2.9 or better, so I moved to Ubuntu 18.04, which has pc-q35.2.11 available as standard.
       
      So I am now working with standard Ubuntu 18.04 LTS based systems with following packages: kvm/qemu/libvirt/bridge-utils/ovmf/virt-manager
       
      As I want to use PCIe Passthrough for a number of PCIe card currently installed in the server (SmallTree 10GbE & Areca ARC-1883 SAS RAID) I set up my machine with linux kernel boot configuration (/etc/default/grub) of: 
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="iommu=1 intel_iommu=on" (as my machine is intel VT-d based HW virtualisation)
       
      This resulted in creation of a number of iommu groups (see /sys/kernel/iommu_group directory for this and this posting for information: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/ubuntu-17-04-vfio-pcie-passthrough-kernel-update-4-14-rc1/119639 , noting that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS has kernel version: 4.15.0-22-generic so there is no need to do kernel update for iommu to work).
       
      Using bare minimal Clover config.plist:
       
       
      And following Clover UEFI drivers:
       
      I can boot MacOS, but it is very very slow... it sits on the apple boot logo for over a minutes before finally moving onto the progress bar.
      The other problem I have is that no PCI or Network devices appear in the "About This Mac" System Information Report and I cannot get any network connectivity from bridged E1000 network device.
       
      Here is my virtlib.xml dump for the virtual machine:
       

      Can any one advise of whether I need to update the CLOVER config.plist to add extra items in to allow network and PCI Passthrough to work.
       
      Thank you.
       
      Regards,
       
      Zebity
