      Hi,
       
      Finally I finished the installation of 10.14.6 on my Dell E5440. Everything works just fine, but HDMI will not work. Every time I plug it in, it causes a grey screen on my laptop monitor. Also on boot up. I attached my EFI Folder, maybe someone can help me. I searched a bit and read something about Azul Framebuffer Kext.
       
      Thank you for helping.
      Greedings,
      Hugo

      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

      macOS Sierra 10.12.3 on a Dell Latitude E5440
      A full installation guide. Now 50% Easier

       
      I needed a real hackintosh that was on the latest version of Mac, had UEFI, and had QE/CI. So this was my only option.
       
      Thank you:
      Rehabman,Mickey1979,Herve,The mods at OSXLatitude, that's all I can think of right now
       
      What is NOT working right now
       
       
      Card Reader
      Video Out might not be working, I cannot check currently
       
      What is working
       
      Wifi
      Audio
      ALPS touchpad and PS/2 Keyboard
      QE/CI with an Intel HD 4400
      DVD/RW drive
      All USB ports (including USB 3 ports)
      Sleep works OOBE
       
       
       
      Note: If you have the one with a Nvidia card, disable it in the BIOS or use the nv_disable=1 flag in clover
       
       
      PRE-INSTALLATION (BIOS + MBR ONLY)
       
      Requirements :
       
      A USB Flash Drive with at least 8 GB of storage usable that you don't mind formatting
      An environment that runs macOS/OS X. I used a previous laptop with OS X Mavericks on it to make my image. A VirtualBox VM will also work well.
      Install macOS Sierra.app in /Applications
       
      1. Make sure your flash drive is formatted into the HFS+ file format. I personally used Disk Utillity. Name the partition Installer.
       
      2.Download Pandora's Box
       
      3. Download the MBR Patch
       
      4.Click on Create Installer
       
      5.Find 'Installer' under Select a Volume
       
      6.Click on the [...], and find the installer.app. It should be located in the Applications folder.
       
      7. Under MBR patch, make sure to select parent folder that CONTAINS the MBR patch
       
      8. Click Install
       
      9. Once it's done installing, don't remove the flash drive from your computer, we have a few things to do.
      ------------------------
      1.Download the latest version of the Clover Bootloader.
       
      2.Make sure to install Clover to the USB drive. Pandora's Box has renamed your USB drive to Pandora Installer
       
      4. Click Customize, and make sure that UEFI only is checked off.
       
      5. Make sure Install Clover in the ESP is checked, Driver64 is Checked, and Boot0ss is checked. You don't need any themes right now.
       
      6. Install Clover
       
      7.While you have your EFI partition mounted, extract the EFI.zip onto the root of your flash drive. It may ask to replace the contents in EFI, click YES. This will install the kexts, config.plist, and dsdt that you'll need to be able to boot to the installer.
       
       
      8.Reboot your device and plug in your flash drive into the Latitude. When your computer boots, mash your F12 button. Make sure not to break it. When it pops up do NOT go to the UEFI boot option. Under legacy boot, hit enter on USB
       
      9.If all goes well, you should be on the Sierra install screen. I did not know if the PS2 kext would work when being in the clover kexts. So I decided not to put them.  Which means your trackpad isn't working right now. Use a USB mouse and keyboard for now.
       
       
      Note: If you cannot see Disk Utility, go to the Language Chooser, and hold Alt+T. Then type /Applications/Utilities/Disk\ Utility.app/Contents/MacOS/Disk\ Utility. You will need to select the drives with your keyboard
       
      10.Open Disk Utility, and partition your drive with at least two partitions. One should be a 300 MB Fat32 partition, and the other should your Mac Installation.
       
       
       
      PRE-INSTALLATION (UEFI + GPT Only)

      6. Install Clover
       
      7.While you have your EFI partition mounted, extract the EFIUEFI.zip onto the root of your flash drive. It may ask to replace the contents in EFI, click YES. This will install the kexts, config.plist, and dsdt that you'll need to be able to boot to the installer.
       
       
      8.Reboot your device and plug in your flash drive into the Latitude. When your computer boots, mash your F12 button. Under UEFI boot, press enter when you highlight your flash drive. If it doesn't boot clover, then go down to troubleshooting.
       
      9.If all goes well, you should be on the Sierra install screen. I did not know if the PS2 kext would work when being in the clover kexts. So I decided not to put them.  Which means your trackpad isn't working right now. Use a USB mouse and keyboard for now.

      POST INSTALLATION
       
      1. Open up the Kexts folder
       
      2.Open up Kext wizard. Go to the installation tab.
       
      3.Drag the contents of the kexts folder into the box. It should be auto-selected to /System/Library/Extensions.
       
      4. Click install. It may ask for credentials
       
      5. Go back to the main page and highlight /System/Library/Extensions. Make sure it says repair permissions and rebuild cache. Then click install
       
      6. Restart your laptop. This will be the last time you will need to boot from your USB.
       
      7. Install clover onto the Fat32 partition that you made before. Same settings as before, but instead of putting it as boot0ss, put it as boot0af. Use the same EFI.zip that you used before to put on the Fat32 clover partition.
       
      Sorry if this guide is a little over the place, this is my first guides, and ratings in the comments are much appreciated!
       
       
      EDIT: Updated downloads and made some steps easier (mainly the post-installation ones)
      EDIT 2: Cleaned up a lot of the steps. Made them more pleasant to read. I might add images next.

      Hello All,
       
       
      I have a dell e6420 laptop which i have setup for triple boot. i just realized that i followed an old guide and thus it might be why I'm having freezes on minimize windows. specifically browser windows.
       
      this is what i did:
       
      install osx el capitan
      created 2 partitions fat
      installed windows
      installed ubuntu
      installed gptsync on ubuntu to keep all partitions sync'ed. 
      went back to windows and made OSX partition active so that clover will boot.
       
      now everything works fine, but i have a very strange issue.
      when i hit minimize, the window freezes half way down and then it goes to the dock. sometimes it just hangs and i have to reboot.
      this issue is only on OSX. windows and linux don't exhibit this issue.
       
      i thought my issue was related to installing gptsync under linux, so i have removed it after reading other triple boot guides but the issue remains. it seems keeping the partitions in sync is no longer needed.
       
       
      Specs:
      Dell E6420 
      8GB RAM
      525 GB Crucial SSD
      intel i7 2.8Ghz
      1600x900 Display
       
      is there a log that i can attach to try and see where this issue is coming from ?
       
      thanks
       
      here is a picture:

      1. Credits/Sources
      Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide:
      OSX Latitude.com Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac Forum member Jake Lo from OSXLatitude.com for helping me out with installing. Morpheousman and Polyzargon from InsanelyMac who helping me with my other topics. (Dell 780) MacPeet, Chris1111 and all other forum members who helping out the community. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial. And Hervé from insanelymac for using is modified DSDT.aml for E6320
      2. Requirements
      Here are the requirements:
      A Dell Latitude E6320 – This is necessary to install macOS Sierra for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.12 to – For me, I used a 500GB HDD to install 10.12 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor. E6320_V2.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. 3. My Specs
      My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5-2520M laptop computer with the following specs.
      Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.5GHz, 3MB cache, Dual Core 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM Western Digital 250GB HDD INTEL HD3000 Video Intel 825xx onboard network Dell wireless 375 Bluetooth 3.0 onboard (works OOB) IDT 92HDxxx HD audio onboard TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor Apple Magic Trackpad (only @home) Apple Wireless Keyboard US (only @home) Apple Magic Mouse 4. Download OS X Sierra
