[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.

also do not forget that the latest clover changed the structure of the clover folder and its drivers.

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

I'm now installing!
