Mojave on Dell Latitude E6410 With Working Sleep

About the brightness issue, I remember I had it too on my E6320 but unfortunately, I haven't documented in my notes how I fixed it. :-(
Might be a more recent FakeSMC or when I got rid of NVidia drivers (I had it erroneously installed in my first trials) or of the NVRAM emulation? Anyway, you did a great job. ;-)

Thanks!  I suspect that the brightness issue would be fixed if we figured out how to get the brightness slider working (currently, brightness can be adjusted only with the Fn-Up / Fn-Down keys).  I tried a few things but didn't spend much time on it.  The brightness keys work very well.

 

EDIT: I am currently running without PNLF in my DSDT.  I had read that it may be required for sleep, but it is not required for the E6410 to sleep/wake.  It will likely be required if we attempt to get the brightness slider working.  I removed it to see if this resolves the brightness issue when resuming (it's not a consistent problem, so I'll just have to wait and see).

My updated DSDT (without PNLF) is attached.

@vbmota and @hazem3ly - I'm not sure if you're both still having "disk unrecognized" issues.  I'm not experiencing any issues with dual-booting Windows and MacOS and I don't have any additional kexts installed, so I thought I'd share my disk strategy.  There are other ways to do this, but this is the approach I've taken:

  1. Install new SSD ( Drive A ) in primary drive bay and install macOS (my macOS disk is APFS with Mojave and High Sierra installed).  Install Clover on Drive A and prepare EFI.
  2. Remove Drive A and install new SSD ( Drive B ) in primary drive bay (so that only Drive B is installed and Drive A is not installed)
  3. Install Windows 10 on Drive B leaving unallocated space on Drive B (my Drive B is 256GB SSD with 100GB used by Windows 10)
  4. Use Paragon Partition Manager (free) to format the unallocated drive space on Drive B as HFS+ (note that I created the HFS+ partition on Drive B in Windows 10)
  5. Move Drive B to your 2nd drive caddy and install Drive B in the modular bay
  6. Install Drive A in the primary drive bay

When booting, press F12 to select your disk.  Selecting the primary drive ( Drive A ) runs the Clover bootloader so you can boot macOS.  Selecting the modular drive ( Drive B ) boots Windows 10.  With this strategy, Clover bootloader runs only when booting macOS and not when booting Windows 10.  From macOS, I can use the HFS+ partition on Drive B for macOS storage.

 

Note that I installed both macOS and Windows in the primary drive bay (before moving the Windows drive to the modular drive bay).  I don't like to install Windows 10 when any other drives are installed.  I find that Windows 10 installer behaves much better when there is only one drive in the computer during the install.  I add drives AFTER Windows 10 is fully installed.  You can probably install Windows 10 on Drive B when Drive B is in the modular bay - this is just the way I did it.

@Dr. Monkey Now that everything is working (including sleep), I am still not observing working "speedstep" for the GPU.  I'm content with my E6410 as-is and sleep works great, so I'm not planning to do much more with the E6410 (except to get Catalina working).  Every once in a while, I observe RPM for the GPU fan in HWMonitor (see attached screenshot), so I suspect that HWMonitor is not reading the GPU stats correctly and that we can't trust what HWMonitor reports about the GPU.   If you have a more reliable way to read GPU stats, I'd recommend it.  Maybe there's a better version of HWMonitor (I thought I read about one somewhere).

Removing PNLF from the Latitude E6410 DSDT appears to have "fixed" the brightness problem.  Since making this change, I have not observed brightness at MAX after resuming from sleep and brightness keys work fine after resuming from sleep.  This problem was intermittent before, so I'll continue to monitor.

 

Wi-Fi, USB and other components/functions resume without issue following sleep.  I have not found any problems so far.  Would be interested in hearing other sleep test observations.

Can you share the DSDT with new edits? Thank you!

Edit: nevermind, I found the post above. Will test it.

Answering your suggestion about the disks, I could install the 3 OSes with 2 disks (one for Mavericks and Mojave an second for Windows 10) without any issues now. Thanks again.

I hope others with Latitude E6410s are having the same experience as I am.  I can't believe that a 2010 laptop is this good and runs Mojave so perfectly.  This laptop is truly a pleasure to use.

I trying to appling every edit you do in dsdt but i couldn't make it work, and i feel lost, i don't even know if i patshing it correctly, i also apply your dsdt file without edit but the machine is restarting before entering the os without any error message appears in verbose mode.

please if u can share any guide about patching it i will be grateful i already readed RehabMan [Guide] Patching LAPTOP DSDT/SSDTs but i couldn't find out how to do something like what you mentioned in first post like this (LPCB._DSM patched with device-id "3b09") for example,

and if you have any tutorial/guide on how i can diagonisting my machine like what i have to do with blackdragon's report.
and if it is possible to make full guide like the one by @duduclx it will be great help.
and thank you for your help

@hazem3ly I read through your previous comments to see where we last left things.  When I last looked at your debug files, it appeared to me that you have a system that is the product of multiple installation methodologies.  Adding my DSDT to it is not going to fix the problems.  It will be best if you start from scratch to install macOS using the config.plist from post #1 of this thread, the kexts in post #1 of this thread and the latest DSDT and SSDT-UIAC in this thread (will require you to do a bit of reading of this thread).

 

This is definitely not a beginner hackintosh guide.  I haven't had time to turn this into a guide, and won't for a while.  If you're new to hackintosh, starting with Mojave on an unsupported system is not the best way for you to start.  It would be better for you to perform a fresh install of High Sierra (which works great with the same files discussed/attached in this thread) and High Sierra doesn't require any patching (e.g. does not require dosdude patcher).

 

To summarize, the latest DSDT that I posted to fix sleep will not be helpful to you until you have resolved all the other issues you have described previously, which I believe can only be resolved if you start over and perform a fresh installation of macOS.

 

After you perform the clean installation of High Sierra, we can start to diagnose issues (if any remain).

I just noticed that when my laptop resumed from sleep (sleep after idle time-out), the display brightness was at maximum. The good thing is that after removing PNLF from the DSDT, the brightness keys work as they should, so brightness is easily adjusted (if necessary) after resuming from sleep.  The difference that I'm observing in brightness behavior after sleep (occasionally at max brightness and usually not at max brightness) may be based on whether the laptop sleeps automatically after idle time-out or I actively "sleep" my laptop (by pressing Fn-F1 or by selecting Apple Menu > Sleep).  I think it may be that the max brightness after sleep occurs only when the laptop sleeps automatically after idle time-out.

I can testify, sleep is working nicely!

And for my Mavericks partition too! 

I have 3 2010 different machines with Mac OS and the Latitude Notebook always was my good boy.

Thank you again, man.

 

Edit: one last question is about NTFS R/W partitions.

I can not use NTFS partition without third party softwares (like paragon ntfs or tuxera).

Theres a recommended driver in Clover folder like GrubNTFS.efi or NTFS.efi that I can use in this laptop? Thanks.

The Clover drivers are just for Clover to see/show/use those partitions. They're of no use to gain Write access to any NTFS partition from OS X/macOS.

Glad to hear that sleep is working well for you.  I'm amazed at how well this laptop works.

 

What happens when you try opening an NTFS partition in Mojave Finder (without any software)?

 

EDIT: Just re-read your post and see you need R/W.  I assume you found that you can read NTFS.  Not sure how to write.

I previously posted my 2-disk solution for dual-booting Windows 10 and macOS.  Part of that 2-disk solution includes using Paragon Partition Manager (in Windows) to create an HFS+ partition on the second disk (the Windows disk) installed in the modular bay.  I have confirmed that this HFS+ partition on the second disk works with Time Machine.

Did someone else have this verbose?

 

"

"name" not a kext

"FailedCLUT" not a kext

"FailedImage" not a kext

"

 

Edit: theres more one error (I presume is a DSDT edit one) with APCIBatteryManager:

 

"ACPIBatteryManager: ACPIACAdapter: ACPI method _PSR failed"

@vbmota Try googling your errors (e.g. Google "name" not a kext).  You will find that these are common in syslog.  Looks to me as though the errors you mentioned can be ignored.  Let me know if you find otherwise.

I haven't seen any errors, but I'm probably not looking for them correctly.  Can you share your steps to reproduce and observe the errors?

 

I was using a ACPIBatteryManager version 1.9 and get this error checked by dmesg at terminal...

Now I changed for version 1.7.20 and no more errors are showing at terminal, just Warnings like:

ACPIBatteryManager: WARNING! fCurrentCapacity > fMaxCapacity. adjusted fCurrentCapacity from 7200, to 4056

 Ok.  Google "ACPIBatteryManager: ACPIACAdapter: ACPI method _PSR failed"

You will find that Rehabman commented on this in another thread.  Let us know if you find a fix (if one is needed).

@Nodarkthings I was looking back at old posts from June 2019 (another forum) where I had first started exploring sleep and audio solutions for this Latitude E6410.  I was reminded that you were one of the first to suggest (to me) NVidia drivers as being related to the sleep problem and you had provided an audio example that replaced AppleALC with VoodooHDA.  Thanks for your contributions that resulted in this successful installation of macOS on the Latitude E6410!

I think I found my first "issue" with this HackBookPro6,2.  If I enable Caps Lock, disabling Caps Lock may require more than one key press.  Has anyone else seen this?  I'm wondering whether it's VoodooPS2Controller.kext or the physical Caps Lock key.

Thanks, @vbmota.  I'll try it out.  I tried asking in the OSXLatitude thread but someone there deleted my question.

@vbmota R6 fixed the problem and enabled Trackpad Pref Pane.  Very cool.  I was reading the OSXLatitude Thread for Refined ALPS Trackpad and noticed that someone posted a DSDT patch for brightness.  I didn't read much, but it looked to me like it would be the fix required to get the brightness slider working.  Might be a future experiment.  Thanks for the R6 suggestion.  I'll make the change in post #1.

      What works and what does not
       
      - Processor: Intel Core i5-4300M ->  Work. All SpeedStep stages.
      - Video Card: Intel HD4600 ->  Work. QE/CI and Metal.
      - Chipset: Intel QM87 ->  Work.
      - Mini DisplayPort ->  Work. But no audio, yet.
      - VGA ->  Not work. Normal.
      - Audio: ALC292 ->  Work.
      - WiFi/Bluetooth: Intel AC 7260 ->  Not work. Replaced with DW1560 (need whitelist removal).
      - Ethernet: Intel I217-LM ->  Work.
      - Card Reader: Realtek RTS5227 ->  Not work.
      - Keyboard and Touchpad ->  Work.
      - Webcam ->  Work.
      - Fingerprint Reader ->  Not work. Normal.
      - USB3.0 ->  Work.
      - Sleep ->  Work.
      - Airdrop, Handoff, Instant Hotspot and Continuity ->  Work after replaced wireless.
       
       
      Extras
       
      - FullHD 1920x1080 display upgrade: 
      Replaced with AU Optronics B140HAN01.1 30pin eDP (B140HAN01.2 and B140HAN01.3 also compatible).
      Apparently same screen as Dell Latitude E6440, E7440, Lenovo Ideapad U430 and E129.
       
      - CPU upgrade:
      Replaced the stock Intel Core i5 4300M 2.6Ghz (3.3Ghz turbo) 6M cache with Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4Ghz (3.4Ghz turbo) 6MB.
      I initially had problems with overheating. The processor ran at full load above 90 degrees.
      After using a quality thermal paste I can work between 70 and 80 degrees.
      Acceptable taking into consideration that the new processor has 47TDP versus 37TDP which is recommended.
      I also had no problem consuming the battery while charging. The original 65W source seems to have figured out.
       
      - Touchpad upgrade:
      Replaced the stock with T460 touchpad.
      This is serious: you have to do it! It should be stock. Touchpad with precision and absurd quality!
      Just do it!
       
      - RAM upgrade:
      No mistery here. Just upgade.
       
       
      Todo
       
      - Make DP audio work.
      - Make Card Reader work.
      - Upgrade CPU to i7-4712MQ (Ordered. It's on the way) Done, but received i7-4700MQ (47w TDP, with good paste I have no overheating)
      - Replace touchpad with T460 model (Ordered. It's on the way) Done. Sensitivity and perception of quality much better. I recommend 100%!
      - Sierra Gobi5000 4G LTE modem EM7355 (Ordered. It's on the way. I hope works. ) Done, but not work. Recognize but not connect. I already gave up...
      - Upgrade to 16GB RAM Done
      - Make trackpad appear in System Preferences

      - Download the USBInjectAll.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1108.
      - Download the ACPIBatteryManager.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1005.
       
      - Download the VirtualSMC.kext from here. I used version 1.0.2. Replaced with FakeSMC of the HWSensors 3 r196 package.
      - Download the FakeSMC.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0915. Replaced with VirtualSMC.kext due 10.14.4 issues on update.

      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week.
      In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you.
      I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 2.0.0.
      - Download the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0505.
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.2.
       
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your destination disk EFI parittion, with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

      If the flash drive EFI partition of your destination disk or flash drive is unmounted:
      Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 0 for destination disk and 1 for flash drive.
       
      Then, eject the flash drive.
       
      Last step
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.3
       
      - Updated with success;
      - Everything works perfectly after reboot;
       

       
       
      System update 10.14.4
       
      - Updated Clover to 4910.
      - Updated Lilu.kext to 1.3.5 and WhateverGreen to 1.2.7.
      - After first reboot the update progress stoped with:
      GTrace synchronization point 4 Unsupported CPU Unsupported PCH hmm.. mismatch sizes: 3100 vs 20 It was still possible to start the previous installation, selecting "Macintosh" as opposed to "macOS Install" in Clover.
      So I created a flash drive with Clover 4910 and put only my config.xml, SSDT-L440.aml, the updated Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext. And I decided to test VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.kext.
      With this I was able to install update 10.14.4. After installation I can boot normally, even with FakeSMC.kext that already in /Library/Extensions.
      I do not know what exactly happened, but now works everything like was previously.
       


       
       
      System update 10.14.5
       
      - Updated Clover to 4934.
      - Updated Lilu.kext to 1.3.6 and WhateverGreen to 1.2.9.
      - After first reboot the update progress stoped again (like 10.14.4 update) with:
      GTrace synchronization point 4 Unsupported CPU Unsupported PCH hmm.. mismatch sizes: 3100 vs 20 It was still possible to start the previous installation, selecting "Macintosh" as opposed to "macOS Install" in Clover.
      I decided to rollback to FakeSMC.kext but this time with the version of HWSensors 3. Link above.
      With this I was able to install update 10.14.5. After installation I can boot normally.
       

       
       
       
      System update 10.14.6
       
      - Updated Clover to 5097.
      - Updated Lilu.kext to 1.3.8 and WhateverGreen to 1.3.3.
      - Make system update.
