  3. n7110

    Version 1.0.0


    Dear friends, here is mine N7110 dsdt patched for installation on Sierra, I didn't tried this on other versions of OSX but it should work on EL Capitan at least, my wifi card is AR5B95 AR9285+AR3011. BT is working OOB, WiFi is working with toledaARPT kext installed with easykextpro and always followed by sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions I will post my clover folder and kexts also. Everything is working like a charm. I also found Mieze FE driver but for some reason only original Realtec driver is working good for me. There is only 10Mbps but it is full duplex at least :). Sleep is working too ( hey, a lot of probooks doesn't have working sleep ) UPDATE - New version soon, I am working on disabling nVidia Optimus via DSDT and SSDT, and DSDT will be patched for ALC269 Device ID 28.

  8. I want to put os x on a computer. I have two choices, the Dell inspirion 15 3000 series 703270, or the Hp x2 tablet pc 10-k010nr. I already talked to Hp support, and they said the hp tablet pc is designed like a regular pc so it can have bios access, run the same version of os as a regular pc would. ?THe tablet also has a keyboard and mousepad, so it dosnt need to be touch screen %100! 1.?http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/703270/Dell-Inspi... 2.?http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/488121/HP-Pavilio...

  9. My situation is really strange. I installed Windows 8.1 and Mavericks in one hard disk drive with three partitions, one for each operating system and one just for storage purpose. Since my wireless network card (BCM943142HM) is not usable in OS X, I bought a USB Wifi Adapter (TP-LINK TL-WN725N) so that I could access internet. But when I use a lot of internet bandwidth (downloading torrents) the computer freezes completely. So I decided to work heavy internet use in Windows and just specific tasks on OS X. I’ve been using my computer in this way for almost 8 months without any additional issues.? ? But recently I found somewhere that in order to stop the random freezes caused by the high internet’s bandwidth use, I had to disable Spotlight. So I did it, but the freezes continued. However I noticed that I could use the computer for a longer period of time before it froze again. ? So here is the problem. Yesterday, after some of this freezes I restarted the computer and now it beeps 8 times while booting indicating a display problem according to Dell, and the display shows up like this while booting and in Windows: ? ? ? But inside OS X the screen turns off. When I perform the display test according to Dell (holding down the D key and then pressing the Power button to turn on the computer) it shows solid colours indicating that the display panel is working correctly. Right now I’m using an external monitor connected to the HDMI port which is working correctly in both operating systems.? ? Inside OS X it’s like there is no display panel connected to the graphics adapter, and in Windows it detects the display panel as a generic monitor. ? I’m really concerned about this. I know this is not a common problem, so I would appreciate any help!
  10. I have a Dell Optiplex 755 and It has a Intel Q35 Express Chipset Family Graphics Card. I was wondering if this Graphics Card will work with Mac OS X? ? Thank You
  11. I have a dell Optiplex 755 and will my graphics card work? ? I have a Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS. I was wondering if it will work with Mac OS X and What versions of Mac OS X will it work with? ? I also have a Nvidia GeForce GT 630.?I was wondering if it will work with Mac OS X and What versions of Mac OS X will it work with? I just wanted to know before I even try to install Mac OS X. It is the Core 2 Duo model. I don't plan on using both Graphics Cards at the same time. I just want to use the one that works better on Mac OS X. I just have both Graphics Cards lying around and I just want to use one of them.

  13. Hello OSx86 Community! Glad to have joined this website, since I have found a lot of information on getting my PC finally Hackintoshed.. After trial and error I managed to install iAtkos L2 successfully on my Dell OptiPlex 745.. but there are a few issues.. First I must always start up with the "-x" command in Chameleon bootloader.. or else it will give me an error "System Uptime in Nanoseconds" (and nanoseconds after it).. but that's not really the worry I have.. From what I understand, the "-x" command starts up Hackintosh in Safe Mode, which means the Video settings are not as right as they should be (don't know how to explain, basically bad resolution).. and I only get one resolution in the system settings.. (1280x1024).. I only have iAtkos L2 on the hard drive, no dual booting or any other Operating System.. I was typing this thread from my laptop with Windows 7 on it.. so I can use Windows apps to fix issues.. but there is a problem - For some reason iAtkos will only mount drives with the HFS format.. but that would mean I cannot mount it in Windows 7.. so I cannot transfer Kexts or any other files/programs ( I can't connect to the internet on iAtkos since I'm on Wifi, and the router is nowhere near my Desktop, and I don't have the Kext for it.. ).. so that's a problem.. it won't mount Fat32, nor NTFS.. it will mount my 8 GB USB with the iAtkos setup because it is formatted as HFS ( I used TransMac to put the .dgm file on the USB stick, and another USB stick with Chameleon bootloader ).. so how can I make it possible to see the contents of an USB drive on both iAtkos and Windows 7? ^^' I know I've written a lot, but here are the main issues I have - "-x" command MUST be used to startup my PC properly.. Does not mount Fat32/NTFS USB drives No Wireless driver Only one video resolution No sound.. Since I would be able to fix driver issues, I would need an USB drive which mounts on both systems, to transfer apps that I download on the laptop, and Kext files.. but I cannot do that .. PC Specs - System = OptiPlex 745 BIOS Version = 2.6.6 Intel DuoCore 6600 @ 2.40GH Bus Speed = 1066 MHz RAM - 2GB I know I don't have enough information.. urgh.. I got them from the BIOS settings.. doesn't show me more than that.. but if you want some specific specs please let me know and I'll try to look further.. So, since I wrote way too much, but it's good to give as much info as possible.. but my main question is.. how do I get my USB drive to mount on both systems.. ? Thanks.
  14. Every time I try to install Mac OS X 10.6 on my Dell Dimension 4600i, the installer hangs. I have tried a lot of snow leopard distro's and my retail copy of 10.6.3 with osx86 ModCD, iB{censored}, iB{censored} Legacy. All of them have the same problem. Here is what happens: Basically when I boot from the cd it boots fine. Then when I get to the language screen it works fine. When it get to the installer screen it work fine. But when I go to partition my HDD, it hangs. The disc spins to load disk utility, it loads. When it click to partition the HDD, it try's to unmount the disk and it can't. And the disk stops spinning. I have also tried to partition the HDD with the leopard DVD. It works. Also when I get into the installer after I partitioned the HDD. I click install and it gets to the preparing installation. Then the disk stops spinning and the installer hangs. I have also tried to use a USB drive for the install the same problem happens. I don't think it is the DVD drive. I also tried many DVD drives. They all have the same problem. Leopard works fine. I really want snow leopard to work. My specs are: DELL Dimension 4600i Pentium 4 2.66 ghz 2GB of ram. Nvidia GeForce 6200 with 512 MB of VRAM. I know that the p4 is 32-bit only. I don't care. I have seen snow leopard working on the pentium 4. What can I do about the installer hanging. Is there any boot flags I can try. It there a kernel I can try. Thank You.
  15. Hi experts, ? I have tried to install Mavericks (version downloaded on June 28th from App Store) on my XPS M1530 but no success. Mountain Lion was working perfect. ?

During the first boot I am getting the famous "system uptime nanoseconds" error.?Do I have to renew the kext in Extra? Please advice. ? Thanks. Kenan ?
  16. Bom dia, ? Depois de vários dias consegui instalar com sucesso o OS X Mavericks em meu notebook e os demais problemas começaram a aparecer, não consigo instalar o bootloader com sucesso, no momento estou tentando com o Chameleon, mas estou fazendo algo errado e não tenho exito, no caso, instalando o Chameleon com as configurações padrões + temas, o arquivo boot na raiz e uma pasta Extra são geradas, seto o caminho com o Chameleon Wizard para a SMBios dentro da pasta Extra, pelo que li, deveria funcionar, alguma idéia do problema? ? Obrigado desde já pela atenção.

  19. Hey all! This is my first hackintosh setup and I've hit a bit of an issue that I've been unable to solve on my own. ? First the specs: Intel Core 2 Duo P7450 @ 2.13GHz4.00GB RAMIntel GMA45320 GB Internal Hard drive (SATA)USB Drive with installerAHCI is enabled in my BIOSSystemInfo results: http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/9a2d/xdvfb1crdk73bdffg.jpg ? I've got the USB drive set up with myHack and the InstallESD.dmg from the mavericks installer app. ? After a bit of trial and error I can get the installer to boot up without any additional flags aside from -v (which I always use because verbose is nicer anyway). ? The issue is that Mavericks won't see the internal hard drive and neither does DiskUtil. It will only allow me to install on the USB drive which is full of the install stuff anyway. ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. ? EDIT: The installer is on a laptop drive almost identical to my internal one. The only real difference is the installer drive is placed in external enclosure. Switching places (installer goes in HDD bay, internal goes into USB) causes the boot to stop at "Waiting for root device". ? Meaning this is clearly a driver issue. Only I have no clue on which kexts to use, what versions, etc.
  20. I've gotten most of the hardware for my Dell XPS 13 (L322X) working, but HD4000 graphics just won't work. I can turn on GraphicsEnabler and set my resolution to 1080p in Chameleon, and it will boot in 1080p, but Graphics Acceleration doesn't work (non-translucent menu bar). ? I have an i7-3537u. I've tried multiple SMBios presets, but at this point I'm lost. I have to boot with -f, or else it won't boot, so would that be a problem?
  21. Hello! My System: http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/precn/en/precision-t1600-spec-sheet.pdf The resources I have been using: • U{censored} - Mountain Lion 1.5.3: {censored} • MB{censored} - Mountain Lion 5.1.3: {censored} • DSDT Editor: olarila.com ? View topic - DSDT editor and patcher • DSDT Autopatcher: olarila.com ? View topic - DSDT Auto-Patcher (app only) • KEXTUtility: Kext Utility / Home / cVad MAC • T7500 Patch file (T1600 & T7500 desktops use the exact same motherboard): http://olarila.com/Packs/Dell/Precision%20T7500.txt • Mountain Lion ALCA269 KEXT: http://www.osx86.net/view/3177-applehda_alc269_mountain_lion_version__...html What I did: I installed using U{censored} using this guide (had to use PCIRootUID=0, -x flags). The install was successful -- however I am only able to boot into the OS via the U{censored} USB, and only when using the flags PCIRootUID=0 and -x. I attempted to extract my DSDT using DSDT Editor. I ended up with 4 errors that could not be fixed -- the error in all 4 cases was "Must be a multiple of alignment/granularity value." I came across this page which mentioned the same error (third code segment up from the bottom of the page). By changing the code commented /alignment from 0x08 to 0x01 I was able to successfully compile and save the DSDT and save it to my desktop. Attempted to use AutoPatcher using the DSDT file just generated and the T7500 patch file. Autopatcher log shows an error - it was unable to compile. I ran MB{censored}, located on my desktop. I referenced this page to see what options I should select (T7500 and T1600 desktops use the same motherboard). I selected User DSDT, NullCPUPowerManagement, and PCIRootUID fix. I opened KEXTUtility and dragged on the ALCA269 file. After all these steps -- I am still at my initial stage -- I can boot into OSX, but only via the U{censored} USB bootloader, and only with the PCIRootUID=0 and -x (safemode) flags. Attempting to boot the PC without the USB inserted results in no bootable device being detected. Attempting to boot without the -x flag results in the boot stopping at: "com.apple.launchd 1 com.apple.mrt 54 Stopping job..." Would love any feedback on what i'm doing wrong! If you need any more information I would be happy to provide it. Thank You!

  25. Hi: This is a guide for triple-booting a Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 with OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion), Windows 7x64 Ultimate, and Vector Linux VLocity (x64). I use this laptop for DJ'ing every weekend and frequently throughout the week. Interestingly enough, I've tried running my DJ software on both Windows and Mac on this laptop, and Mac runs my DJ Software way better. The latency for MIDI USB devices (controller turntables) is almost nothing with Mac, where with Windows there is a significant latency issue which makes Windows unusable for me in terms of DJ'ing. It probably doesn't help that the vendor only provides generic USB drivers for Windows, though (Numark). What doesn't work: > Sleep (don't care). Using a low-timer screensaver and InsomniaX to disable sleep. > Never tested HDMI or E-SATA (USB on that connector works though) > Function key brightness (brightness slider fix in guide) My DSDT is attached. I also attached a geekbench score screenshot. I subscribed to the thread so I can answer any questions.

Chameleon doesn't see linux on the 4th partition. Therefore, all OS'es must be on partitions 1-3. That's why the OSXBACKUP partition will be on partition 4. --------------- Part 1b: Installing OSX From Snow Leopard (10.6.3) --------------- 1> install OSX 10.6.3 on OSX parition. finish to setup process as well. a> If you have "CUSTOM OPTIONS" available on the main install screen, the -ONLY- option I enabled was the PS2 option. If you don't have "CUSTOM OPTIONS", after the install is finished, try MB{censored} "PS2" controller drivers. If those don't work, check osx86.net and try drivers from there. Voodoo PS2 drivers did NOT work for me. b> these PS2 drivers should work in SL and ML. 2> After install is complete, boot with nawcom boot CD. boot into new OSX install and complete the setup process. --------------- Part 1c: Install Windows (Partition #2) --------------- 1> Install Windows 7: Boot into Windows 7 setup from DVD. Install Windows 7 on "WIN" partition. Windows partition must be formatted first (do it from Windows Setup advanced disk options). 2> On Win7 install compeltion, reboot without any bootloaders or CD's. finish windows setup process. if you can boot into windows OK, move on to next steps. --------------- Part 1d: Install VLocity Vector Linux (Partition #3) --------------- [1] Boot from setup CD [2] When setup asks for "partition drives" vs "use existing partitions", select "use existing partitions". [3] Select the partition using for Linux, mount to "/" and format as "ext2". [4] Do install. [5] When install is complete, do NOT install any bootloaders ("none" option). [6] Finish config - reboot on complete. [7] Must boot from Vector install CD to boot into system. At first boot prompt, run command "linux root=/dev/sda3" (sda3 being the new installed partition). Ignore read-only warning. [8] Go through VL configuration stuff. Reboot when finished. [9] Same as above, use VL CD to boot into system. [10] Install GRUB bootloader: > At user login screen for VL, jump to a terminal instance and log in as root. > Run grub install command: "grub-install --force /dev/sda3". For info on "--force": https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB2 > Run grub config generator: "grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg" [11] Reboot. Grub should boot into linux and have a menu screen now that includes linux and windows (added by default). --------------- Part 1e: Set Active MBR Partition --------------- 1> Make sure the OSX (Partition 1) is the active partition in order for Chameleon to work right. > I used windows "diskpart" to set the active partition. --------------- Part 1f: Install Chameleon (Bootloader) --------------- 1> Restart and boot into OSX (Snow Leopard) again with nawcom CD to ensure everything works. Make sure you can get into OSX without crashes / freezes / hangs. 2> Install the chameleon bootloader. Make sure chameleon can see all three partitions on bootup (OSX, WIN, LIN). OSX probably won't boot from chameleon yet. -------------------------------------------- Part 2: Copy / Transfer Important Software -------------------------------------------- At this point, you should copy / transfer over any important software that you will need post ML install. Once ML is installed, you will only be able to boot by doing safe mode, which will restrict access to external drives that are only HFS/+. If you have a way to write to a USB HFS drive (special software / another mac), then you can skip this section and do it after ML is installed. If you don't or aren't sure, you should just get software onto the system now so you don't have problems later. 1> Create a temp "software" folder on your OSX desktop. 2> Copy / transfer important software over to that folder: a> Chameleon (or your bootloader). b> a DSDT editor: DSDT - OSx86 c> a Kext installer like Kext Wizard d> drivers / hacks / MB{censored} / etc e> anything else you want ----------------------- Part 3: Create installer USB drive for OSX Mountain Lion ----------------------- 1> format your 8GB USB stick as default mac type filesystem (Mac OS Extended (Journaled)). creation single partition as Master Boot Record. ** NOTE: USB3.0 ports won't work right now - use a USB2.0 port. 2> Make folder in "/Applications" called "Install OS X Mountain Lion.app" (app package). 3> Mount mountain lion image (was named "InstallESD.dmg"). 4> Mount "BaseSystem.dmg" from inside newly mounted mountain lion image "Mac OS X Install ESD" ("InstallESD.dmg"). 5> 2 images should be mounted: "Mac OS X Install ESD" and "Mac OS X Base System". 6> run {censored} U{censored} - make sure to check "Laptop Support" or keyboard won't work on ML setup (next step). ----------------------- Part 4: Install Mountain Lion ----------------------- 1> after U{censored} is finished, patch the usb drive with nawcom "2815-OSInstall(MBR)+OSInstall.mpkg(10.8.GM)" files so that the install will work on MBR drive (2 files to overwrite - see instructions in zip). 2> reboot system using the new bootable ML USB. 3> select the USB drive from iB{censored} and enter command line options: "busratio=17 -x". a> if you get a black screen (no actual setup windows come up), reboot and try again. Sometimes I had to try a few times. 4> Press space-bar when bluetooth keyboard window comes up. Do the install. Install took about 45 minutes to an hour for me. a> screen may go wacky during install progress screen. hit an arrow key and it came back to see the install progress. ----------------------- Part 5: Fixing Mountain Lion ----------------------- After the ML install finishes, we're going to have the biggest hurdles. The video (Intel HD3000) is a pain in the ass and makes it almost impossible to boot into the system (black screen after load). I could only figure one way out to boot into the system: 1> Boot from the U{censored} USB into OSX using with options "busratio=17 -x GraphicsEnabler=no". b> **NOTE: if you installed the "legacy_kernal", you will have to boot with option "mach_kernel". I experienced immediate reboots after bootloader without specificing mach_kernel. If so, change "legacy_kernel" to "mach_kernel" in "org.chameleon.Boot.plist" "Kernel" option. 2> Move "AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext" & "ApplePS2Controller.kext" out of E/E to the Desktop. 3> Delete remaining kexts in E/E. 4> Install "AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext" & "ApplePS2Controller.kext" drivers to S/L/E. 5> Repair E/E permissions and rebuild caches. 6> Install FakeSMC + Intel drivers (listed above). 7> Install "AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement" driver (listed above). 8> Open MB{censored}: Install system definition for MacBook Pro 8.1 and Core i5/i7 SSDT boot option (see above). 9> Extract / create / add custom DSDT file. 10> **IF USING 1920x1080 LAPTOP SCREEN**: add "Graphics Mode"="1920x1080x32" to "org.chameleon.boot.plist". --------------------------------------------- Part 6: 4K Advanced Sector Fix for Chameleon ** SKIP THIS IF YOU DON'T HAVE A 4K SECTOR DRIVE ** --------------------------------------------- 1> The Chameleon boot loader doesn't get installed properly by itself on "4K Advanced Sector" drives. You will see "boot0: done" and will go straight to Windows 7 (no chameleon menu). 2> The Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid SSD is a 4K Advanced Sector drive. This fix is required for chameleon to work right. 3> Follow the instructions in the post below (page 1, post #6). The post refers to "OSX Lion" but you can use your U{censored} OSX ML USB stick: Chimera and 4k HDD boot issues (I also saved the instructions to a text file with this file called "4k_advanced_sector_fix") ---------------------------------- Part 7: Install Remaining Drivers (any order) ---------------------------------- > Install "ACPIBacklight.kext" (above). > Install Audio drivers (above). > Install Battery drivers (above). > Install LAN / WAN drivers (above). > Install USB 3.0 kext > External VGA hack (above). > Any other drivers... ---------------------------------- Part 8: Create Moutain Lion Installer (Recovery) Partition ---------------------------------- Use Moutain Lion 10.8 and xMove for Mountain Lion to install the ML installer onto the OSXBACKUP partition. This will help for emergency recover situations. > Format OSXBACKUP as "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" through mac DiskUtility > Mac will set OSXBACKUP as the primary partition. Use windows "DiskPart" command utility to set partition OSX (#1) to the active partition again. > Make folder in "/Applications" called "Install OS X Mountain Lion.app" (app package) - should still exist from above. > Mount mountain lion image (was named "InstallESD.dmg"). > Mount "BaseSystem.dmg" from inside newly mounted mountain lion image "Mac OS X Install ESD" ("InstallESD.dmg"). > 2 images should be mounted: "Mac OS X Install ESD" and "Mac OS X Base System". > run {censored} xMove for Mountain Lion. Install to OSXBACKUP. > Boot into OSXBACKUP from chameleon. Make sure it works. 4k_advanced_sector_fix.txt geekbench 2013-05-05 at 3.04.14 PM.png.zip
