Hi,

 

recently I tried the same. But now I'm able to install a Niresh Maverick distribution with a haswell patched kernel.

I took really a long time to find out that boot up procedures will not cope with ACPI configurations from DELL.

 

I copied the haswell pre-patched kernel from here to the root filesystem to my Niresh Maverick USB 8 GB media. The Installation to msata device takes round about 25 minutes. 

 

Intel Ultimate-N 6300 AGN will not work. Thinking about a replacement broadcom mini pci express card....will need the best ootb part.

 

After the Installation, I will report more about the configuration. First I have to fix boot issues.

 

Kind regards

Hi,

 

installing Mavericks Niresh was so slow that interupted the installation. So I switched to usb 2 extern HDD:

 

Problems so far:

 

- Internal HD 4600 works only with HDMI monitor plugged in. Resolution depends on  the EEID of the external monitor. HDMI Port does' show up any GFX

- No audio with the latest voodoohda

- Sleep and Speedstep not working....

 

I use Clover to boot. Tests with chameleon will follow.

 

Kind regard

managed to get most things working, excpt audio. and the intel wifi,

Intel wifi will need to be replaced. What device/vendor is the audio?

Check in the BIOS...

 

Update:

Looks like Dell has move away from IDT and now uses Realteck. From the specs I check, this uses ALC3226 in BIOS but shows ALC292 when dump from linux.

Please try this patched file by Mirone AppleHDA.kext.zip

and add this to your DSDT

Hi,

 

I was trying to get rid of NullCPUPowerManagent.kext to get speedstep working. 

My DSDT.aml compiled without errors with the help from toledo ML HDMI repository:

 

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/292999-mavericks-applehda-hdmi-audio/

 

But I get kernel panic when I boot with my DSDT.aml files copied to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patcged/.

 

Can we check the Bios versions? I recently updated mine to A07.

My Audio Controller reported from BIOS A07 is a Realtek ALC3226. I Will check the kext from Jake Lo. Thanks.

 

Kind regards

not sure about the msata drive, as during my install it did not detect it,, but i did run into a time when i was testing a USB wifi dongle that the entire laptop was slow even during bios and boot, turns out it was the USB wifi device, if you have any usb accessories remove them and reboot see if that fixes anything
