In OSX, open finder -> applications -> utilities -> terminal (drag terminal icon to the dock for easy future access)


Open terminal and type the following:



CODEsudo –s


*enter password*


nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

Type in your password at the prompt. This opens the boot config file where we can add kernel boot flags.


Add the following under the <key>Kernel Flags</key> section (add this section if it doesn't exist):



CODE<string>cpus=1 platform=X86PC</string>


It should look like this:



CODE<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>cpus=1 platform=X86PC</string>

-Hit ctrl-o to save and enter to keep the filename.

-Press ctrl-x to exit nano.

-Exit terminal and reboot into the bios settings and re-enable multi-core threading.


I'm very interested in seeing how you got the Ethernet working, Wireless and Audio.


I have a D620 and the ethernet is grayed out as well as the Audio, and I can't get the wireless working, maybe you can help. Thanks. drop me an email laz954@hotmail.com
