Welcome to OSXL!

 

1st thing would be to post the system's full spec. Then let use know what version of MacOS re you trying to install

Specs needed:

CPU

Audio Codec

Touchpad type

Wifi / BT model

Ethernet

SD card reader if there's one

Display full resolution

BIOS version

If you have Windows install, probably easiest it to post the output of dxdiag.exe

Latitude E5400/E5500 is an old Core2Duo laptop quite similar to old E6400 (Intel graphics) model. Those are fitted with Series 4 chipset graphics, i.e. Intel GMA 4500MHD which is totally unsupported. Lack of graphics acceleration makes this old laptop totally unsuitable as a Hackintosh.

 

1st thing to do when considering running OS X/macOS on a PC is gather the hardware specs and check if they're compatible/supported, the key elements being CPU and GPU.
