No, it´s not possible to turn off in bios.

So after a few days about research I find the way to take a system.


1. Use iFail ML2 to take an installer without bootflag. 

2. Use disk utility to take a MBR Partition for Mac

3. In Customize select

    - GraphicsEnabler=Yes

    - GraphicsMode=1333x768x32

    - MacModel = Macbook Pro 8,1

    - AHCIInternal

    - PS/2

    - disable ATI graphics drivers

    - disable NVIDIA Drivers,

    - Intel HD Graphics Graphics id:03

    - Laptop Battery

4. After install use this bootflag to boot to system: dart=0 

5. Copy the Extra folder from archive

6. There are patched SSDT, DSDT, smbios for Macbook 8,2, OCPL

7. With Kext Utility install 3 kexts from archive (AppleHDA, IOUSBFamily, IOUSBMassStorageClass)

8. Reboot


What work or partialy work:

- Brightness - only in preferences

- FN keys - only for volume and bluetooth and itunes

- sleep - DSDT,SSDT edit - very fast

- camera - native

- LAN - native

- Bluetooth - native

- Sound - Use patched AppleHDA

- I/O - Use patched AppleHDA 

- Trackpad - Voodoo PS/2 use in install

- Battery - Checked Laptop battery in customize install

- Camera - native

- Booting is very fast - 7 seconds



What don't work:

- Wifi - The chip must be replaced

- Card Reader


Extra folder to download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qhye7pfv5u32x51/MAC_Install.zip


Now you have Mountian Lion 10.8.2 on Dell Inspiron 15z 5523 i7 model.


Update do Mountain Lion 10.8.4

1. Must use Combo Update 10.8.4

2. After install don't reboot

3. Delete AppleHDA.kext

4. Delete all ATI, AMD and NVIDIA kexts

5. Reboot

6. After Reboot install AppleHDA.kext from archive via Kext Utility again. 


UPDATE: 19.7.2013
