Dell latitude e7240 not detecting the ssd

Recommended Posts

I tried to install mac os catalina in dell 7240 

cpu: intel i5 4300u

ram: 8gb ddr3 1600

ssd: m sata 128gb ssd

wifi card dw1520  (changed because the intel card that came with it isn't supported by mac os )

so now when I try to boot and click disk utility I cant see my disk 

I use the 7440 catalina  boot pack from this guide from this guide 

idk if that is the problem

Did you set BIOS accordingly?

 

Set to Load Default, apply, then set Boot List Option to UEFI, SATA Operations to AHCI, Enable Legacy Option ROMs

Disable Wake on LAN / USB / Wifi

  1. You need to to go Accessibility and enable click to tap.
  2. DW1520 is wifi only, no Bluetooth, you need to get DW1550 for that combo wifi/BT
  3. Slow boot could be due to a number of things. Do you have a mechanical drive or SSD?
  4. If SSD, you can go in the Config file and disable Trimming, not needed for APFS.
  5. Check /EFI/Clover/drivers/UEFI, what do you have installed?
  6. Touch?? you mean touchscreen?

1) done and worked thanks a lot

2) okay np I will stick with 1520 cause 1550 isn't available atm

3) ssd mSata

4) couldn't find that

5) I'm using the same refi folder I uploaded here

UEFI.png

6) yes

 

and also I found that it dose't detect the battery right percentage and not detecting if it is charging even tho the charging led is bright which means that it is charging but macOS doesn't detect that it is charging and webcam isn't working also 

 

so sorry for many requests but I'm so noob :( I will try to solve until you reply and update the thread

Here, replace the Config with this

Go to /E/C/ACPI/Patched and remove SSDT-UIAC-E7440.aml

You should also update your kexts: Lilu, Whatevergreen, AppleALC at minimum.

Links are found in my guide you linked above

config.plist.zip

post  new debug file

Webcam shows being detected in your previous IOReg file. Is it not working or not showing in your system information?
