Installing ML on Dell E6530


Recommended Posts

I've had a desktop hackintosh that was custom built for the past 4 years.  I've recently sold that machine and bought an iMac.  My employeer is providing me with a Dell E6530.  I want to run dual boot OSX ML.  Here are the specs.

 

i5-3340M

Nvidia 5200M

Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Wireless card

 

I see a bootpack for this machine but it's running an i7 3520 but with the same graphics card.  Is the DSDT processor specific?  I would guess not unless it has been modified in some way for speedstep.  Any input would be helpful.  This will be my first laptop hackintosh.  Thanks.

Do you have the same exact specs? Here's all the files I used with DSDT, SSDT, and patched AppleHDA by EMlyDinEsH. Follow guide here for your build.   Edit: E6530 Spec Intel I7-3740QM Nvidia NV

Replace GenericUSBXHCI with the latest version here to Extra/Extension. Run myfix (full) Add -gux_defer_usb2 to boot.plist

I don't believe this particular DSDT is CPU specific. You'll have to generate your own SSDT for your CPU. Try it and post back for help here if you encounter any issue.

You can install with our bootpack. (Just follow our documentation).

 

But don't install EDP itself! Wait there and contact Dinesh, through the DSDT / SSDT topic, in the DSDT section of the forum.

Please forgive my ignorance.  I'm all to familiar with tonycrapx86's tools for running a hackintosh but no so much with this website's.  What is the difference between the bootpack and the EDP?  I've downloaded the bootpack and found a lot of familiar folders and files.  What does the EDP do?

Hi All,

Also having some problems installing onto E6530 using the myhack USB,

followed the documentation.

also set the following

  • Ensure you have your SATA controllers in AHCI mode.
  • Ensure you have enabled your CPU’s C states.

and

"Also make sure Optimus under Video is uncheck / disable in the BIOS and enable XD CPU support under security"

it gets to the welcome screen but cannot chose a language, the laptop keyboard, mouse or trackpad not responding and if i attach an external device still the same.

if boot with external mouse or keyboard it halts @ [ PCI configuration end, bridges 6 devices 14]

any help appreciated.

Daps,

 

Try replace attached ApplePS2Controller.kext in the Extra/Extension folder, run myfix on the USB Installer. This kext works for internal mouse and keyboard.

Also make sure to boot your USB Installer on the USB 2.0 port, should be on the left rear corner. Report back your progress.

 

Edit: Sorry forgot the attachment

 

ApplePS2Controller.kext.zip
