Dell Latitude Compatibility

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!  :)

 

I have a Dell Latitude D810 currently running Lubuntu 14.10.

 

I would like to make it a hackintosh. Preferably somewhere around 10.6.. That's basically my only macOS experience.

 

Can anyone tell me if this is compatible? I believe it is stock config but my grandpa (previous owner) might have added something.

 

Specs I know of:

 

Intel Centrino

40 GB hard disk

originally had Windows XP dual booted with Ubuntu 10 (neither would boot)

 

Thanks very much in advance for any help. This would be my first Hackintosh so sorry for my lack of knowledge on the subject  :blush:

Hi

 

I had a d620 and that worked well apart from sleep, you will have to check what GPU and wifi card you have as if they are not the correct ones could cause issues.

 

Also worth having a look as osxlatitude forum.

The D810 is built on 32bit Dothan Pentium M CPUs with Intel 915PM chipset and, according to Dell's online documentation, ATI Radeon X300 or X600 graphics. It does not look like this 2005 (yup!) business laptop shipped with basic GMA900 graphics. The best you'd be able to run on this obsolete laptop is Leopard 10.5.8. I understand ATI Mobility Radeon X300/X600 could be support with a Calisto patch. Run a search on the forum for "D810" to find out.

 

SL requires the AMD/legacy kernel because Pentium M are not natively supported by the vanilla kernel. Unless the Calisto patch also works in 10.6, you can pretty much forget Snow Leopard and your D810 is not compatible with subsequent versions (from Lion onwards, you need a 64bit C2D CPU minimum).

 

For add-on cards, this ancient laptop only offers 1 x mini-PCI slot (not mini-PCIe), so you'd need a card like the old Broadcom BCM4318-based DW1470 for wifi. That model works OOB under Mac OS X. Intel cards are not supported.

 

Hackintoshing this old laptop will make an interesting self-teaching project for the long winter nights...  :yes:

 

NB: The D620 is not comparable. It's of later generation with C2D CPU, 945PM chipset and GMA950/nVidia 110M graphics, all fully supporting SL and Lion installations.

      Problem:
      When I Attempt to wake my Machine from sleep, the screen stays black, although the computer is obviously awake !
      This Machine has a 1300W Power Supply So Sleep is Very Useful.
       
      I Tried:
      1) FIX_WAK and FixShutdown as per Clover Wiki.
      2) Although I am using "SAPPHIRE Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB GDDR5", which Should be completely Supported by Mojave, I Also changed the Part Number to "113-4E353BU-O4E" as per this Guide: http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/archives/feb18/RadeonRX-580_MacPro.html. The GPU is working GREAT without even Clover Inject
      3) Tried to Run this command: disablehibernate.command.zip
      4) Tried darkwake=0 to 10
      5) Disabled wake on USB & Wake on LAN (BIOS)

      Hello, I am wondering if somebody could help me, I am new to the whole "Hackintosh" system having been a windows fan boy since the day I remember. I have worked In IT the last 9 years but had very limited interaction with OSX and Hackintosh (Managing to Hackintosh a Fuji laptop back in 2011 but not sure how I managed). 
      I am running a Dell E6420. 
      Intel I5 - 2520M 
      10GB ram 
      250GB Samsung SSD
      Nvidia 4200M 
      Alps touchpad 
      Intel Wifi  ( I am aware I will need to change this) 
      Intel Ethernet 82579
      Unsure on Sound device (But it was working I believe with Voodoo)
      I have tried to download a pre made distro that I got to boot up, and install on to my laptop. I found a similar Dell post online (Maybe for a E8420?) and downloaded their EFI files, I then just copied this to my usb stick and deleted the existing EFI folder. This got me to the set up my account screen when i realised my touchpad didnt work (Would scroll and click but not move) and then using a USB one I then realised that my keyboard (that was working on the install screen now doesnt work). 
      I then reinstalled it but this time choosing customise and selecting some options for installed KEXTS and this then got my laptop to boot and get to the create account screen but this time I didnt have any network connection. 
      Third time lucky.... Well I then installed again but selected the above and network adaptors (I tried the Nvidia options too but this didnt work) and then I was able to create an account, browse the internet and start playing about seeing what I could get to work. 
      I then downloaded some Clover tool and I was trying to download some KEXTs for the touchpad and I was using a KEXT installer.. This then was my downfall after this I then (as I had flashbacks to years ago) when I realised I had then broken it... 
      Eventually tried to reinstall but this time I was getting errors on install, I recreated the boot usb and still got errors, I then tried multiple boots and then I would just get a hang screen after loading "voodoobootps2?" or just kernal panic. 
      When I was trying all this I had my laptop set to UEFI (I believe this was incorrect), and I could only boot my laptop when I had the USB still installed, I would boot and then select "run OSX" this would boot fine, but I could never get it to work fine. I then on multiple times tried to boot using non UEFI and Legacy but I would always get KP and never work, Only booting with UEFI was my best chance.  BIOS Settings had been coppied from dare I say.. a youtube video.. So they could be incorrect. 
      I don't have access to a MAC, I do have a copy ready of HighSierra clean and my "tainted" pre edited version. I was installed the imaging to USB using Transmac. I was using CLOVER.

      This follows my previous guide for macOS Sierra.
       
      0. What works and does not
      Works
      - CPU power management
      - QE/CI on Integrated Intel HD 4000
      - Keyboard/Trackpad
      - HDMI and LVDS output
      - Audio: Headphone, speaker, HDMI (?).
      - Ethernet
      - Camera
      - Battery info
      - Bluetooth
      - USB
       
      Does NOT work
      - Internal Wifi. Workaround: USB wifi or replace your internal wifi with a supported mPCI-e card.
      - Sleep: does not work with an USB wifi. Workaround: Replace your internal wifi with a supported card.
      - VGA out. Workaround: Use an « active » HDMI to VGA adapter. I use this way to connecting my laptop to projectors.
      - Discrete AMD GPU
      - Card reader. Workaround: Use an external USB card reader.
       
       
      1. Specs
      My Dell Inspiron 15R SE still has the following specs (I haven't upgraded it since Yosemite) :
      - Intel Core i7 3632QM with Intel HD Graphic 4000
      - 8GB + 4GB RAM (12GB total)
      - 128GB Samsung EVO SSD + 1TB HDD
      - AMD Radeon 7730M, won't be used by any Hackintosh build
      - Full HD 15.4" screen
       
      2. Requirements
      - A Dell 7520, of course
      - An USB Stick, minimum 16GB. Any 16GB should work.
      - A pair of USB Mouse / Keyboard during the installation and fixes (you can use your built in keyboard and touchpad later)
      - An existing Hackintosh (or a real Mac, if you have any )
      - Downloaded «Install macOS Mojave Beta» from App Store.
      - A GPT-partitioned hard drive
      - A 20GB (minimum) partition as the target.
      - Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher
       
      3. Create USB Install. For full guide please see here
      - Boot your existing Hackintosh or real Mac.
      - First you need to be sure that you have downloaded the app «Install macOS Mojave» from App Store
      - Use Disk Utilities to partition your USB stick with 1 partition in GPT mode, and choose «OS X Extended (Journaled)» as partition type. Note: don't use any space in label of your disk.
      - Run Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher, select the installer app, select usb disk as target.
      - Be patient. It's quite slow.
      - Download and install Clover Bootloader v4658 to the usb disk, note to install using EFI boot only
      - Copy attached config.plist to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/
      - Copy attached kexts to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/
      - Download NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and put it in /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/
      - Reboot after finishing creating your USB for installation.
       
      4. Install
      - During boot, press F12 to have boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004 to boot the installation.
      - It should boot directly to the installation UI
      - Select Utilities and Disk Utility.
      - Format your target partition as OS X Extended (Journaled). APFS can be used but it's your own risks
      - Exit Disk utility.
      - Begin the install procedure - it should be there already. Choose your newly formatted partition. Follow the instruction. Wait for a while (in my case I waited around 10 minutes).
      - It will restart your computer as soon as it finishes the file copy.
      - You still need to boot from USB. Hit F12 during boot to show boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004, select your installed partition and press Enter.
      - You will be able to see user creation. Follow the instructions on screen. When you get to your desktop, rebuild kernel cache:
      sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -u / - Reboot, you should be able to use both LVDS and HDMI outputs (with default ig-platform-id 01660003, already patched using this guide) with proper kext and config.plist attached.
       
       
      Welcome to macOS Mojave!

       
      5. Device fixes
      Most of the fixes are included in the attached kext zip.
      5.1. CPU Power Management
      Works fine with macOS Mojave (official version) as long as you use ssdtPRGen.sh as instructed here. Don't forget to delete NullCPUPowerManagement.kext afterward.
      5.2. Wifi
      The integrated wifi doesn't work. At all. I used an external wifi dongle TP Link WN725N (v2) for Internet access. After that I replaced the internal wifi with a Atheros AR5B29 and it works natively
      If you use this AR5B29, copy the attached AirPortAtheros40.kext into /System/Library/Extensions
      config.plist.zip
      kexts.zip
      AirPortAtheros40.kext.zip

      Hello everyone,
       
      I was able to install macOS Sierra 10.12.6 a few months ago successfully with working audio, internet, etc.
       
      But now I want to upgrade to High Sierra and am not sure whether or not it will be compatible with my system. (Tried to do it using a High Sierra USB. Wouldn't boot into installer, showed "+++++++++++++" or something.)
       
      My specs are:
      Dell Optiplex 3010
      Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz (HD2500 Integrated Graphics)
      4GB of RAM
      NVIDIA Quadro FX1800 (Want to use this GPU, have an extra Radeon HD7470 somewhere that I can also use in this if needed)
      Conexant CX20641 Audio
      Realtek RTL8111E Ethernet
       
      So, can I upgrade to High Sierra? Please let me know.
       
      EDIT: I kept getting this error: (See attached image)
       
      Thanks
