  1. For touchpad sensitivity issues (pointer / cursor jumping around), I'm working with RehabMan with his Voodoo drivers on the tony mac forums.? Do a google search for "dell inspiron n7110 alps touchpad hackintosh" and it should come up.? Not sure if I can link to there from this site. ? External USB mouse users can enable the option to "disable the trackpad on USB mouse" but I use a bluetooth mouse (not the same for the driver).? Still working on that.

    Searching for anything on the site is completely broke.? Doesn't matter if it's downloads or forums.? Any search returns no results.
  6. I was having random freezes on boot at the apple splash but before the spinning wheel. Sometimes the system would boot. Sometimes not. Setting "USBBusFix" to yes/on in org.chameleon.boot.plist fixed the problem for me. One of the individual USB fixes might do it but I didn't test them individually. I attached a verbose screenshot of where the stall / freeze was happening on boot. The system would stop right around the "Couldn't alloc class "AppleSMCPDRC"" and "Controller: Intel 82801G (vendor ID: 8086, device ID: 27d8)". gateway_M685-E_10.7.5_freeze_stall_bootup_pre-wheel.zip
  7. Hi: Guide for triple-booting Gateway M685-E with OSX 10.7.5, Win7 Ultimate (x32), and Vector Linux Std Gold (x32). Begin Guide: *********** *********** ** NOTE: the Gateway M685-E is a 32-bit machine and will not work with Mountain Lion 10.8+ (requires 64bit). 10.7.x will probably be the best I'll get. ** NOTE: had a situation when trying to install linux where I tried installing grub bootloader as MBR and it hosed my GPT information. Windows would no long boot and when trying to reinstall from DVD, would give me an error regarding the GPT partition. If this happens, use OSX DiskUtility to do a "repair" on the drive. After doing the repair on the drive from OSX, windows should let setup reinstall to the partition. ** NOTE: A DSDT doesn't seem to be required. ** NOTE: NullCPUPowerManagement may be required initially by Snow Leopard but doesn't seem to be required for Lion. ** NOTE: Might be wise to keep the 10.7 Lion Installer partition for emergency booting (if need to use a terminal / command line for problems on main 10.7 install) --------------------- Install 10.6.3 --------------------- [1] Boot from iB{censored}. [2] Swap and boot the OSX 10.6.3 Retail DVD. [3] Set boot style to GUID and creation 6 partitions: > Mac (extended journaled (default)) [110 gig] > Mac (extended journaled (default)) [25 gig] (for backups + Lion installer partition) > Windows (FAT) [110 gig] > Linux(FAT) [67 gig] > Linux Swap / Transfer (FAT) [4 gig] > FAT Transfer Partition [4 gig] (for transfering between OS's) [4] Run install of 10.6.3 on OSX partition. ** NOTE: if screensaver kicks in, can't get visible screen back! Have to wait until install finishes and reboots automatically. [5] After installation, reboot with iB{censored} CD and boot from new installed OSX. [6] Disable regular and display sleep. Choose a screensaver instead. [7] Reboot and boot to OSX using iB{censored} (for safe measure to ensure everything is working). --------------------- Copy OSX Images, Bootloaders, {censored}, etc. --------------------- [1] Copy all files needed. --------------------- 10.6.8 Upgrade --------------------- [1] Set BIOS date back a few years (I used 05-07-2009). Required for update package to run without failing. [2] Copy "MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.8.pkg" file to desktop of OSX. [3] Run setup and update. Reboot using iB{censored} afterwards. Should be at 10.6.8. ** NOTE: if setup fails (shouldn't), try running {censored} UpdateHelper, reboot, and run combo update pacakge again. --------------------- Install MB{censored} Stuff (required for booting without iB{censored} and the Lion install partition requires these to boot) --------------------- [1] Open MB{censored} for (I used Lion version): [2] Select: FakeSMC [3] Select: PS/2 Mouse & Keyboard Drivers [4] Select: ElliottForceLegacyRTC (bios cmos reset issue) [5] Select: EvOreboot (fix shutdown / reboot stalls freezes) [6] Select: Optional: NullCPUPowerManagement (shouldn't be required) > NOTE: this may cause boot problems (randomly booting into system) - if so, try booting into the system without using this kext. [7] Select: System Definition: MacBook Pro 8,1 (required to for Lion Installer to recognize compatible system) (might work with other definitions) [8] Install --------------------- Update boot plist / DSDT --------------------- [1] Optional: Use DSDT Editor to extract and then compile the "dsdt.aml" file. Place in "/Extra". > NOTE: a DSDT may not be required. I mainly tried using a DSDT for boot problems (randomly working sometimes). Try without. [2] Use Chameleon Wizard to update the org.chameleon.Boot.plist file: > use "dsdt.aml" (only if using a DSDT mentioned above) > use "smbios.plist" > arch=i386 > GraphicsEnabler=yes > Restart Fix NOTE: originally I wasn't using a dsdt but I was having random boot problems so the dsdt seems to fix the problem. --------------------- Install Windows 7 --------------------- [1] Boot from Windows 7 x32 DVD, install to WINDOWS partition. ** NOTE: THe windows partition will need to be formated by the setup first (as NTFS). [2] Go all the way through installation until booting to desktop. ** NOTE: Windows install will always erase an existing bootloader (shouldn't be one yet anyway). [3] Install Windows activation as well just to make sure nothing breaks later. --------------------- Install {censored} Chimera Bootloader --------------------- NOTE: I could not get video to work with the latest Chameleon. Using {censored} Chimera works. --------------------- [1] Boot into OSX without iB{censored} CD (if something goes wrong, you could boot with iB{censored} CD). [2] Run MB{censored} for SL (3.10.1 used) - install Chimera bootloader (v1.7.0 r1394). [3] Create and configure "/Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist" to use "GraphicsEnabler=yes" and "arch=i386" as options in order to get fully working video. [4] Verify Windows partition still runs ok and is accessible. --------------------- ** IMPORTANT NOTES ** --------------------- > OSX 10.7+ cannot be booted with iB{censored} CD. > xMove: System files and extensions are copied to the 10.7 installer partition from the main 10.6.8 OSX installation. Make sure necessary kexts are installed before doing xMove. --------------------- 10.7 Upgrade --------------------- [1] Boot into OSX (shouldn't need iB{censored}). [2] Create installer partion (from OSX partition) of at least 8 gig on the mac. Any name. [3] Create empty folder in "/Applications" called "Install Mac OS X Lion.app". [4] Copy then mount 10.7 "InstallESD.dmg" (from DVD) [5] Mount "BaseSystem.dmg" from inside newly mounted lion image "Mac OS X Install ESD". ** NOTE: to see "BaseSystem.dmg" will need to show hidden files: console command: "defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE" kill finder (force restart/refresh): "killall Finder" [6] 2 images should be mounted: "Mac OS X Install ESD" and "Mac OS X Base System". [7] Copy / Run xMove (Lion) - use new installer partition. [8] Reboot and enter into the new Lion Installer partition. Install. Should finish / reboot automatically. NOTE: if screen goes blank - don't panic. Installer is still running. Just let it finish and the installer will reboot automatically. [9] After finishing, reboot into regular OSX partition. Should boot without problems. --------------------- 10.7.5 Upgrade --------------------- [1] Run / install 10.7.5 Combo Update --------------------- Vector Linux (Standard Gold 7) --------------------- ** NOTE: Could not install to GPT-partitioned drive with Vector Linux Light (7). Setup never would see Ext2 partitions. See: Vector Linux (Light 7) on GPT Drive (Multi-OS) Problem [RESOLVED] [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/sda5" (sda5 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/sda5". 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). [12] Set swap drive in file: /etc/fstab add line under main partition "/dev/sda5": "/dev/sda6 swap swap defaults 0 0" --------------------- Check Windows Boot --------------------- [1] Check to ensure Windows will boot. If an error about the boot sector happens, open OSX partition and run DiskUtility and do a repair on the drive. --------------------- OSX Hardware Drivers --------------------- [1] Network: Atheros AR9285: > (see saved driver files on software drive) > Hackintosh AR9285/ AR5B195 / AR9002WB PCIe wireless/half size - Downloads - OSx86.net [2] Audio: VoodooHDA-v2.8.2.x32.x64.SL.Lion.zip [3] Battery: VoodooBattery for Lion: > Hackintosh voodoobattery Lion / Mountain Lion - Downloads - OSx86.net
  8. 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. Begin Guide: **************************** **************************** * NOTE: this laptop's BIOS only boots from MBR drives: Re: Inspirion 17R (N7110) - UEFI (Phoenix SecureCore Tiano) firmware alway boots in BIOS Mode - Linux Forum - Software & Operating Systems - Dell Community * NOTE: Booting from USB: the system is finicky about seeing some usb sticks at boot time.

HDMI Port: untested E-SATA+USB Port: USB works - haven't tested E-SATA Display Sleep on Lid Close Bug: using disabler for now - no fix yet Function Keys Brightness: not working - VoodooPS2Controller doesn't work. --------------- Part 1a: Create Partitions --------------- 1> Boot from "Nawcom ModCD 0.3.2" so we can boot from the retail 10.6.3 (snow leopard) DVD. 2> Use "Disk Utility" from retail DVD menu to create 4 primary partitions (MBR style partition): > OSX (350gb) (Mac OS Extended (Journaled)) > Windows (165gb) (FAT) > Linux (125gb) (FAT) > OSXBACKUP (remaining space) (FAT) > used for time machine backups and, if you want, a mountain lion installer partition for emergency situations. **NOTE: MBR only supports up to 4 primary partitions. 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.

  9. Thanks - WIFI works on 10.7.4 for my AR9285. My card shows a sticker for AR5B195 but I don't think it's the true card model (and doesn't actually have bluetooth support). I can't get the bluetooth to even show up as a device in windows (multi-boot). Bought it off of Amazon so I guess it's kind of a crapshoot anyway. Thanks again.

    Dell Inspiron 17R N7110: I had USB3 working for a while (before this package) but at some point the ports stopped showing devices in System Info. The ports themselves were still giving power but no device would actually work. Using "IOUSBFamily.kext" and "IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext" from DP3 (above) fixed my problems. I didn't have to remove "IOUSBAttachedSCSI.kext". Thanks much for this fix.
  14. Tried this on a Dell 17R N7110 (x64 alps / dell trackpad) running OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.0 - did not work AND totally jacked my trackpad control even after restoring the original kexts. I have no idea what got screwed up - having to reinstall OSX again from this. Authors intentions were good I'm sure but YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.
