  1. 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. I recommend using the boot menu (F12) instead of just waiting. Keep spamming F12 until you see it in the list - may take a few times. ------------------------------- Changed Hardware ------------------------------- HD: Seagate 500g 5200rpm *TO* Seagate 750g 7200rpm SS hybrid hard drive (Momentus XT): Seagate ST750LX003 Momentus XT 750GB Solid State Hybrid Drive - 750GB, SATA 6Gb/s, 7200RPM, 32M, 2.5 at TigerDirect.com WLAN / Bluetooth (Mini PCI-E): Intel *TO* Atheros AR5B195: AR5B195 | eBay RAM: 6g *TO* 8g (1x2g *TO 1x4g): Crucial CT51264BC1339 4GB Laptop Memory Upgrade - PC10600, DDR3, SODIMM, 1333MHz, Non-ECC, Unbuffered at TigerDirect.com LCD: 17" 1600x900 Glossy *TO* 17" 1920x1080 Matte: http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/section/search/index.php?section=products&model=INSPIRON+17R+N7110&brand=Dell ------------------ BIOS ------------------ BIOS version: A12.

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. 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
