Mavericks on E6410 nVidia

Recommended Posts

Dual boot Win7 and 10.9.5

1. create USB boot as if you were to install 10.9.5.

boot to USB and use disk util to create partitions 1 for win and the other for osx.

boot from win7 media and install it like you would have on a single drive.  ideally win7 with sp1 and do all the update.

2. install 10.9.5 per Patel's guide on OSX.

Hi Patel,


I see that you have a patch for DSDT to fix the shutdown issue. Could you please share the patch script to me? I'd like to use  my own DSDT. Thank you so much!!!

Hey guys, I am not sure if anyone knew this.  I been trying to get my hackintosh on dual monitors.  And by mistake I made a great discovery (at least to me.) I pop the wrong e6410 on my dell docking station think it was just another of my e6410 with win OS but it was hack 10.9.2.  I saw that mac was booting on my primary screen I was like oh well, then as soon as I signed in both screen works.  So for those of you who has Dell docking might want try it or get one for cheap.  :D  awesome!!  As soon as I fond out I came straight in here to share. 

When you say primary screen, do you mean the laptop's screen or an external monitor? I have two dvi monitors plugged in my docking station, but for some reason, I can't get the laptop's screen to transfer to the second external monitor. 

Laptop screen and external DVI monitor work fine, but I would like to get both external monitors to work. 


Has anyone had any luck with that?


I'm on 10.9.5 using the chamln guide with i7 nVidia graphics.

Thnk you Patel for your awesome guide and hello wonderful people!


This is the third machine that I am installing on and I have a problem.


Installing with an i5 560m cpu is fine - no problems and everyone is a happy camper.


Installing with an i7 740qm cpu is a no go. The boot gets as far as 'still wating for root device' and continues to wait forever. A non verbose boot leads to a stop/prohibitory sign above the apple logo.


I have made an honest effort to get it working but am just having no luck here. I can't help feeling that I'm overlooking something obvious.


Does anybody have a suggestion?


Thank you! :)

Make sure BIOS Sata Operations is set to AHCI


Tried that first - it's absolutely and definitely set to AHCI mode :)


Edit: Thank you for your suggestion though.
