Dell Latitude D620 Thread


Recommended Posts

What do we need toinstall MAC OSX on Dell Latitude D620 (With INTEL GMA 950):

  1. Download imageSLD430USB.img.bz2, unpack it and burn it on flash driver >8gb. Viamac/linux/windows method described here: http://www.osxlatitu..._Latitudes.html
  2. Install MACOSX via this flashdrive
    • you need to repartition you HDD in GUID partitiontable via Disk Utility
    • install Mac OSX on Disk 1
    • after installation, when restart will be necessary,use your usb stick to launch mac from Disk 1
  3. After installation, when you will see your desktop, download and install thisbootloader http://forum.osxlati...n-v20-rc5-r665/
  4. After that, download and install this: http://forum.osxlati...ate-5-released/
  5. by following this guide:


1. Download and copy over Extra.zip to /
2. Rename or remove your old Extra (if it exists) folder
3. Unzip Extra.zip to /Extra
4. Open terminal and do:

sudo su [enter]
cd /Extra

5. Choose to do a new build matching your model and then select Applemouse, Audio(Y),Lan(Y), powerpack(N))
6. Reboot

Now it should boot byitself and you will be able to update 10.6 >> 10.6.6
