Precision 3510 - Sierra 10.12.6

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm a newbie.
I tried to install Serria on my M3510 once but that wasn't going well. I booted successfully but it didn't run flawlessly so I uninstalled it. That was 4 months ago, and now I need to install MacOS for my work. I could make the installer USB myself, if there is any boot pack for my machine. If there were not, I think I should start from the beginning.
Here is the specs of my laptop and what I did:
CPU: i7-6700hq
BIOS: 1.18.6 

VGA onboard: HD530, I patched DVMT to make it bootable

VGA discrete: W5130M, there was no option to disable it in BIOS, I don't know how to disable this one, so may be that's the reason why my machine was so hot then.

Ethernet: Intel I219, this one worked fine with the configured clover.

Wireless: Intel 8260 but I already have a supported one
Touchpad: AlpsPS/2 ALPS DualPoint TouchPad, I couldn't make it work properly despite of trying all the drivers in this forum.
That's all what I did the last time. Is there anything I did wrong? I would be so appreciated if there was a guide to follow.
Thanks for reading.

Create the installer, install Clover and then replace the attached contents into /EFI/Clover

Follow guide if you need assistance creating the installer

Set BIOS to UEFI/AHCI/secure boot disabled

Post any issue you might have encounter for further assistance

 

Probably will need DSDT/SSDT patching, so when you got to Clover GUI, hit F4 on the keyboard

Compress and attach /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Origin folder here for patching

I patched DVMT and installed Serria successfully but I couldn't install clover. So I copied the efi folder to efi partition myself and booted successfully. I find nothing in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin even pressed F4 when I was in Clover GUI. I'm using mausi kext 2.3 for lan. Some times my machine just hang there and I need to reboot by pressing power button. Please help me. Thanks so much.

from terminal

- diskutil list (take note of the EFI partion, normally /dev/disk0s1

- sudo mkdir /Volumes/EFI

- sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI

 

or try ESP Mounter Pro, google it

sometimes you have to run disk utility and repair the whole drive it might correct your EFI mount issues or give you a reason why its not mounting.

Thank you so much. Every thing seems work fine but my touchpad doesn't scroll smoothly and sometime it locks after tapping. Its behavior when scrolling sometime is weird, I don't know how to describe. Anyway, I think I could get used to it. Here is my speed step log. How should I patch power management? Thanks.
