How quick does the laptop reboot? You might want to try with option "GeneratePStates=No" and/or "GenerateCStates=No".

 

The laptop reboots almost instantly when I do not use flags like -v I tried the GeneratePStates=No, GenerateCStates=No and both together yet same result. Reboot.

 

well what's the error? efinvram? if so update your chameleon.

 

I triple checked, I'm definitely using the right Chameleon version, and when I use -v it does pass the efinvram... but it doesn't KP and give me a log on screen like the article here: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2869-kp-on-appleefinvram-with-myhack-32-beta8/

 

Hmm thanks for the suggestions guys, any other ideas?

I tried rebuilding the Myhack installer disc, but still no go at all. Instant reboot. I've gone as far as removing a stick of ram. I'm unable to even get an error screen. 

 

I tried swapping the FakeSMC file, tried with -v -x -f -s and still nadda. Any suggestions on how to even view the error screen?

I think I encountered something  similar on a different model. I updated the BIOS and all is good.

You nailed it... tweaked some bios settings ( not the ahci - that was correct) and now its in the installer... I'll post all the Bios settings I am using after install completes.

 

Thanks so much! :)

I have installed OS X 10.9 on my latitude E6400. Everything including ethernet and sound are working, except wifi. 

 

I have BCM4312, so I used did various things including copying and AirPortBrcm4311.kext into the original IO80211Family.kext (and applying chmod +x), replacing IO80211Family.kext with my working Lion kext (I could never update to Mountain Lion and gave up). Replacing IONetworkingFamily.kext. After these procedures, the wifi does show up but I always get "Connection failed".  I noticed that that the wifi connects only when there is no WPA Personal or  WPA2 Personal key. But I cannot disable wifi security key in my network for security reasons. 

 

Could anybody tell me what the problem could be?

Is the switch on the right side of the laptop in the "on" position (no red, or very little red showing?).

Oddly enough - re installing the Window's driver fixed the issue. The WiDCOMM driver needed to be upgraded apparently. That re-enabled everything.

 

Thanks though!

Look at the list posted in R&D->Wifi section.

Hi Hervé, I was reading about the WWan for my latitude, and saw your posting here: http://www.osxlatitude.com/wwan-modules-a-quick-guide/ I was wondering if I stuck a Dell 1390 card (which I believe is natively supported) into the WWan port of my e6400 if I could essentially have two wireless cards - my intel wifi 5300 which works well in Windows and then the second  1390 for Mavericks.

 

Also re the post I replied to, could you post a link.

 

Thanks so much!
