Dell Latitude E6430 full solution

55 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I successfully installed macOS 10.11.6 and Windows 7 Pro SP1 in UEFI mode on the laptop.
I know, there are detailed guides here and on osxlatitude.com but I was not agree with them and carefully check and test every step to tune my Mac.
Intel® Core� i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, speedstep works with Clover default settings
Chipset Intel 7 series, no patches needed
Video: IntelHD4000 or NVS5200M switchable in BIOS, work in both cases
LAN; Intel 82579LM, works with IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.2.1
Audio: IDT 92HD93BXX, works with VoodooHDA 2.9.0.
SDHC reader O2Micro; works with native AppleSDHC.kext with Clover Arbitrary properties.

USB3.0 works natively if not disabled in DSDT
PS2 keyboard and touchpad works with VoodooPS2.
WiFi: Dell Intel WiFi was replaced by Dell DW1520, Broadcom BCM943224HMS. DeviceID=4353
LCD Screen 1366x768

BIOS A12. Initially was A02. Then I flashed A23 and found it is quite bad. The screen is full of artefacts. Flash A12 and all is OK. Not tested other versions.

For some reason BIOS can switched from Intel to Nvidia by itself so I have to do my solution working independent on this state.



It is not working OOB although it has DeviceID known to Apple. The reason is WhiteList in the driver.

I set MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 while the WiFi will work on MacBookAir. I make a patch in Clover.

As well a patch for channels.

I deleted a kext Brcm4331 because it has the same DeviceID. Let kext Brcm4360 to work alone.



In Bios we can set Optimus = Enable/Disable

If Enable then we have two videocards Intel first and Nvidia second. In this case additional SSDT-3.aml will switch off Nvidia.

If Disable then we have only Nvidia card. It will work if Board-ID taken from iMac13,2.

But here there is contradiction with WiFi with required Board-ID from MacBookAir.

So I take MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 which is most close by CPU IvyBridge.

Set BoardID like iMac13,2 to make Nvidia working.

Patch BoardID in Brcm4360 to make WiFi working.

Now I have




and SSDT-3.aml in ACPI\patched folder. This SSDT will switch off Nvidia if Intel card ON.

For Intel graphics there is a patch against 8 apples at start.



No special kexts.

The brightness controlled by keys F1,F2 and slider in Control Panel in both case Intel or Nvidia. Details here  #72 



This is very long story and finally I have working sleep in both cases Intel or Nvidia.



I use my HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5.0.

I got monitoring:

CPU temperature

GPU temperature

GPU main frequency

GPU shader frequency

Battery state % full, time to charged or time to empty.

Battery voltage dinamically.

Battery amperage dynamically. I can see it changes on heavy games.

HDD temperature.




I like VoodooHDA and have no problems with it.

The sound is clear, loud, and switchable between internal speaker and headphone.

Mic is working.



Just tested with BTFirmwareUpdate.kext and it works. I not needed it so switched off by wireless switch at right side.


Keyboard, Touchpad and Touchstick

Post #14


My config, ACPI files and kexts are in attachment.





Better DSDT in the post #6.

Sleep working even when AC inserted.


EDITED 06.12.2018

Now I have HighSierra and this is my EFI folder

Hi I recently got my E6430 with i7-3740QM and osxlatitude helped a lot with dsdt and ssdt for sleep. It still is not going past 3.50Ghz in geekbench I saw another thread here that says it is impossible for all 4 cores to be working with such (3740QM) I tried turning off All-Cores in BIOS and yes it jumped to 3.7GHz finally but geekbench was so bad (6384) that it was not worth it, so I understand if that is not something you can help with. 


I do want to know if you have hdmi out working with the video I am wanting to do some work with group and projector but I am seeing that my hdmi and vga both do not work with the mac os x. They work of course with Windows if I boot with that hard drive but not with OS X. Did you get that working? 


Will your EFI folder work with mine if I swap and test or is there something I should change for it to work? I am still trying to learn the dsdt and ssdt meaning (what they each do) and what or how we edit them for custom application to each machine.

I think you can test your laptop with my EFI. Be sure you can get back.

I also can not make HDMI working. It works in Windows but macOS.


About CPU I have a strange issue. I think it is DSDT bug.

Test with AC inserted.


Low frequency = 800

High = 2400


Test the same application but AC off. Only battery.


Low frequency = 1200

High = 3300


Should be vice versa?!

For the TurboBoost to work correct I had to turn off TurboBoost in BIOS no one else said anything affirming this at osxlatitude but I read someone on another forum with a different situation and hardware approach this way, so I try because I was so frustrated to try anything and it worked! 


Here is that post from OsXLatitude


I have no idea why that would be such but I ran many tests once I got Jake Lo's dsdt and ssdt files he made for my 3740QM since when I first put them in swapping ACPI folder and config the PowerGadget did not go past 2.4 or 3 GHz , and had strange issues similar to yours but not identical. Mine were Jake Lo's ACPI/config swap had 3 or more different GHz-Ceilings, depending on what stage of sleep and how entered sleep, such like


Stage 1: Laptop first on from boot, 1.5GHz 

Stage 2: Laptop sleep from Energy Pane I chose 1 minute, then after wake, 3 GHz ceiling on PowerGadget

Stage 3: Laptop sleep from Lid, then wake from lifting lid and pressing power button, then 1.6 GHz

Stage 4: Laptop sleep from selecting sleep from Apple Menu, then wake, PowerGadget shows ceiling back at 3 GHz


I am forgetting some details here when I did however turn off in first test, both SpeedStep and TurboBoost in BIOS, Laptop booted up in full? 3.5 GHz and showed no different ceilings in PowerGadget wether Lid or Powerbutton or other sleep-method. Maybe this might affect the results on your Laptop to try BIOS Turbo/Speed to off and see?

No, in my case TurboBoost works as expected.

If ON then speed up to 3100.

If OFF then speed up to 2400. 

No side effect.


I want to share my better DSDT. I corrected:

1. Wake with Intel graphics as main (Optimus=Enable)

2. Sleep/Wake with AC adapter inserted.

3. Corrected switch off Optimus.




And I understand the problem with SpeedStep.

It depends on Board-ID which I set as iMac to make Nvidia works.

But speedstep of iMac is not good for MacBook.

I have no good Trackpad driver. Only VoodooPS2Mouse or VoodooPS2Trackpad by rehabman which works exactly the same. They have no scroll function.

Two finger scrolling (and other features) are available with compatible Synaptics hardware.

You probably don't have Synaptics.

Search for PS2 kexts appropriate for your trackpad hardware.

Use this one for Alps touchpad

That one is closed-source, violating the APSL.


There is also some ALPS versions of my version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext floating around (I don't track it, no ALPS hardware here).

Assuming one prefers open source, that is...

Sorry, not sure if that has the latest changes by Dr.Hurt.

This here is the last update posted

Thanks for the update information.

Hope he will commit sources to github because osxl don't allow download to guests.


This driver is really best!

-Great thanks to Dense for helping with activating vanilla trackpad prefpane 

It was me who first investigate it.

I just want to say, thanks for sharing!
It works like 99% good on my E6430 with fresh High Sierra

Sadly, sleep is neither working with Battery nor with AC.

And i got some Artefatcts while booting, but i dont worry about. If booted, everything is good!


But all in all, thanks again for sharing your config!

Best regards from germany!

Yes, i use your DSDT.
I realisized, that if screen goes off, i cant wake it anymore, it just stays dark. (e.g. Sleepmode) and reboots after 15 min.


Do i have to generate my own DSDT? I didnt do that in the past...is there a good tutorial?

that should hopefully fix your issue.


Thanks, but sadly it doesnt work :(

Any other options?


EDIT: i found out, that the laptop doesnt even shutdown properly, only reboot works... :/

      After a long run, I successfully upgraded High Sierra to mojave 10.14 on an intel 5 series chipset MotherBoard.
      MotherBoard: H55ms2
      RAM: 6GB
      GPU1: Saphire AMD RX 460
      GPU2: Nvidia 8400GS
      Storage: 500 GB HDD WD Green.
      The requirement:
      1) macOS pre mojave.
      2) macOS mojave installer from Apple store.
      3) Empty partition or USB to upgrade from.
      4) Un-mout all unused dmgs.
      5) GPT/GUID HDD.
      1) Prepare an empty partition or USB with at least 6 GB.
      2) Format the partition or USB with GUID partition table and HFS+ partition with a name BootablePartition.
      3) Go to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app.
      4) Show Package Contents.
      5) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find BaseSystem.dmg.
      6) Double click on BaseSystem.dmg to mount.
      7) From Disk Utilty click on your partition or the USB that you prepared from number (2).
      8) Click on restore, and chose OS X Base System (BaseSystem.dmg image), then restore it to that partition or USB.
      9) After restoring rename the partition back to BootablePartition.
      9) Run this command:
      rm -rfv /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 10) Create a new folder instead of the broken link and name it Packages, run this command:
      mkdir -v /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 11) Go back to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app and repeat number 2.
      12) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find InstallESD.dmg.
      13) Mount InstallESD.dmg.
      14) Run this command:
      cp -v /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages/ 15) Download the latest clover from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
      16) Install clover on your USB BootablePartition or in a different USB to boot from it. delete all your CLOVER/kext/10.xx and keep others, make sure you don't have any extra kext rather than FakeSMC.kext in the other folder.
      in my case I used FakeSMC.kext and my lan kext RealtekRTL8111.kext.
      17) known Problems in my build: 
      If I updated directly from the apple store the installer in clover will boot with a cross circle sign.
      The FIX is to add this to Clover KextToPatch Thanks to @sunKi http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327488-macos-high-sierra-final-release-is-out-17a365/page-10?do=findComment&comment=2505086 this fix is still working for me in mojave.

      19) SMBIOS mac model that I use is iMac13,2.
      20) Go to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app click on it and chose to install to your macOS Mojave partition.
      21) Reboot.
      22) From clover chose BootablePartion.
      23) If everything is okie BootablePartition will boot to install macOS mojave, wait wait wait till it finish it might take to 1 hour just wait it will reach the auto reboot soon .
      24) Boot to your old macOS Hight Sierra that will be your mojave partition now and enjoy.
      POST Install:
      1) audio: 
      a) Download Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext or build them from source (which I did).
      b) place them in your /EFI/CLOVER/kext/others/
      c) add your audio layout in clover/Devices dict options in my case it's ALC888B which has the layout of 1:
      <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <string>1</string> </dict> d) I had to add beta args to clover/Boot dict, argument (-lilubeta -alcbeta):
      <key>Arguments</key> <string>-lilubeta -alcbeta</string> 2) Add number 14 KextsToPath array to your clover as well.

      Anything else is working for me I didn't need any extra clover kext so far, I tried whatevergreen.kext to fire up my rx 460 without the helper card but no success, So I am just sticking with booting from Nvidia as a first GPU from my motherboard configuration then swap the cables after choosing my macOS partion from clover.
      After upgrading my HFS+ High Sierra partition converted to APFS, no know problem so far.

      Happy build and more info about the partitioning method with a more detailed instructions in this post that I used to update my Sierra to High Sierra
      Special thanks to crazybirdy, sunKi and all of you out there that make this happens.

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.

      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  AptioMemory --> (consigliato) 
                               : Driver64UEFI  ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi
                               : Selezionate l'altri driver come da successiva immagine,
      *Nota: Altri driver che si possono usare  al suo posto  sono:
      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      Per installazione Legacy
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
      le info le trovate a questo post
      Ringrazio @Ciro82 che mi ha aiutato nel preparare questa guida.

      Hello there,
      I can't get my soundcard to work on OS X Mojave. Everything else is working. Graphiccard work, LAN work, front camera work, ...
      I am on a Laptop:
      Wortmann Terra Mobile 1529H, Clevo W550SU1, 15,6" WXGA (1366x768)
      Intel Haswell HM86 Chipset, Intel Core i5-4210M, Intel HD Graphics 4600
      8GB Samsung DDR3L 1600MHz Ram, Samsung 850 EVO SSD mSATA
      Toshiba SATA HDD, DVD Drive SATA
      Realtek RTL8111 PCI-E LAN Card, Realtek ALC269 Sound Card
      Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC3160 WLAN + BT (removed becouse I don't need it)
      OS X Mojave + Clover (4868) UEFI Boot
      Everything else which I can say about my soundcard is:
      Intel Haswell HDA Controller [8086][0C0C]
      Intel Lynx Point HDA Controller [8086][8C20] (probably HDMI sound?)
      Codec: Realtek ALC269VB
      Vendor Id: 0x10ec0269
      Subsystem Id: 0x15585455
      Revesion Id: 0x100100
      Codec: Intel Haswell HDMI
      Vendor Id: 0x80862807
      Subsystem Id: 0x80860101
      Revesion Id: 0x100000
      I have tried several things: Used patched AppleHDA.kext (one time a downloaded, another time I have patched that myself with Apple HDA Patcher 1.9),
      AppleHDA Enabler.kext,
      Lilu.kext + AppleALC.kext (but there I don't know how to use them, I have tried to inject with Clover but it doesn't work).
      So have anybody an idea to solve that problem (or had solved it already by himself)?
      With Lili.kext and AppleALC.kext do I have to just inject a layout-id or is there more to pay attention?
      In the github page about AppleALC.kext my codec is listet, but with many many layout-id's. I have tried like 30 or so but no solution.
      I dont have a audio output device at all in systempreferences. And in systemreport/extensions I see that AppleHDA are not loaded.
      I don't know what to do and hope that anybody could help me.
