[SOLVED] Installing Mojave 10.14.6 on a Latitude E5540

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys.

 

I got hands on a Latitude E5540 and i want to run Mojave on it. Unfortunately i got a reboot after that line of "+"...

So i guess this must be some error related to "Memory Fix" ... but none of the three drivers provided by Clover do work...:(

With "OsxAptioFix3Drv" the system stucks at the "+" line, with the other two drivers the system is rebooting instantly.

All BIOS settings are configured as always suggested in this forum.

 

Trying to boot with only 1 of the 2 Memory bars also does not work/does not make any difference.

I'm starting with plain Clover 2.5 rev5033 and a non customized "config.plist" (Clover in full automatic mode).

I do use "VirtualSMC".

 

Any clues? 🤔  

 

 

 

System information:

Latitude E5540

BIOS Rev A23

1366x768 Display Resolution

8GB of SK Hynix DDR3L 12800S Memory (2x 4GB)

@Bronxteck
Thx for that new resource... but it is also not working for me... 😖

@all

Is there any way to get a clear error message why the system is rebooting at this point?

boot with verbose + debug 0x100 mode

Usually Haswell and above models requires KernelPM enabled in Config file.

Broadwell and above requires additional DVMT pre-allocation memory patching.

KernelPm patch is indeed necessary on those Haswell-Based Latitude Exx40 models to avoid power management-related system reset/reboot at startup.

 

Debug files or copy of Clover folder would be most useful for further assistance.

Thank you so much guys! KernelPM does the trick. 👍

I'm now installing!
