Dell Latitude E6430 full solution

Recommended Posts

Advertisement

FYI: if i delete all files in "ACPI/patched" but SSDT-SB-i5 -> Sleep works wonderful :D
...but sadly USB and macOS BrightnessControll don't.

 

So the problem is inside the DSDT...but i dont get it how to patch anything accordingly?

I disassembled my DSDT with the tool from RehabMan and loaded it into maciASL and fix the errors to compile.
But how do i know which fixes i have to include? 

+ i only see HP fixes or are they generic?


Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Any chance you could kindly share your final build?
I have a E6420 with the i7 and nvidia card. Ive done many AMD builds but kinda struggling with intel. It has a busted screen tho. ive disconnected teh LCD panel so it displays via HDMI.

*Noob Alert*

 

I landed here searching for an Installation Guide (step by step) for my Dell E6430. I do see the build details but couldnt find any links for the steps. Could you please guide me to the link which you used for this build.

make a clover usb installer then overwrite your installers efi folder with slices.

then after install install clover to the HDD/SSD and again transfer slices EFi files. then tune the config.plist for your needs. theme and language and screen resolution. also you need to know what wifi your machine has. if it is intel based then it is not supported by osx and will need replacement.

E6420 is a different machine. this is for E6430 the graphics and other hardware are not the same.

Still worked fine for me. i now have sierra, just cant get past the login screen as the system hangs with nvidia drivers enabled. (P.S i tried with lilu and Graphicsfix kexts but to no avail.

@Slice, can you tell me, what fixes you included in your DSDT?

Thanks in advance...

There are no "fixes in my DSDT" in the sense of MaciASL because I never used it.

I edit DSDT manually step by step as I am programmer and I can test result after every step.

There is final DSDT which you can compare with clean one.

you can use maciasl to convert your dsdt and slices dsdt to .dsl format give one a different name like call Slice's dsdt "slice.dsl" (without the "" marks)  then use a compare tool like meld merge it will compare both files and show you where the changes are.

My guide was good for ElCapitan where Nvidia 5200M works fine.

But now I decided to install HighSierra and I found that Nvidia family Fermi will not work in the OS anyway.

So I switched Optimus ON in my BIOS so I have Intel HD4000 as main graphics and switched off Nvidia by ACPI methods.

Here it is.

      VMQemuVGA display adapter driver for OSx86 running as a VirtualBox guest. The binary should work on all OSs from Snow Leopard up to Yosemite 10.10. It allows to set different screen resolutions in VirtualBox from System Preferences.   The changes I've made to the fork have been minimal.

      We are very close to WWDC 18, so the expeculations are very high. Look at this graphics:

      One of the big expectations for macOS is be a cross-platform system, to help developers bring their iOS apps to the Mac platform.

      Hello everyone, I have an Asus gl502vmk (i7 kabylake + GTX 1060 6 gb) laptop and I tried all the patches/kexts to get the brightness with fn keys/touchpad (I2C ELAN 1200 works with VooDoo I2C kext v1.0 but no gestures/preference pane)/Keyboard backlight to work but no success so far, any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
      [EDIT] (10/04/2018)
      Battery status now works, thanks to @RehabMan turned out to be incorrect SMBIOS (used iMac instead of Mbp) lol, but it drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours while on standby (all apps quited!), on windows 10 it lasts 4 - 5 hours, and on linux it lasts 6 ~ 7 hours!)
      And with VoodooI2C v2.0.1 + VoodooI2CHID kext and patched DSDT, the touchpad is now detected in the sys pref pane but still no input.
      Sound works with VoodooHDA v2.9.1, but the only issue is that the jack sense isn't working (the output device doesn't auto switch to headphone when connected)
       
      [EDIT 2] (11/04/2018)
      The system brightness now works thanks to @onejay09 but I have no brightness slider, and there are 4 extra brightness levels (brightness stops increasing after 12 levels)  and the brightness keys are not mapped correctly, plus the brightness decreases when I plug in the ac adapter, then increases if I unplug it???, the brightness level isn't also saved after reboot.
      battery still drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours, even with brightness at 50%, so apparently it is a power management issue).
      and I also have shutdowns while in sleep mode (I tried darkwake=10 and darkwake-0 and darkwake=no)
       
      P.S. I have uploaded my new report files, thanks!
