Dell E6330 Intel HD 4000


Lets start this guide by suggesting you read the whole thing first, familiarize yourself with the process, get the files downloaded, flash drive ready as this is more likely to make for an error free result. It will also give you an idea of what needs to be changed as you update. If you already have Windows installed on your machine, now is a good time to update/downgrade BIOS: stick to version A11 to avoid graphics artifacts.

Additionally, before I give proper credit, I'd like to say that maintaining this website takes a lot of time and effort and yes, money. If the knowledge on this site has helped you successfully achieve your goals, make it easier to help others by making a contribution of your knowledge or cash, so this can continue.

This is a basic guide which should allow you to install on a Dell latitude E6330. Should you have a problem, please direct requests for help to the support section.

A look at the myHack website to download and know how to create the installer - http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/

A copy of Mavericks from App Store (or elsewhere)

A USB of 8GB (at least, larger is OK, smaller is not)

A reset of BIOS to default settings, click Apply, click on SATA Operation, change to AHCI, click apply, click Exit

Extra file (see below) Extra.zip

NOTE: If you have a higher resolution (1600x900) use the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext.zip (see below) to replace the original one in the bootpack.


Presuming you have read this, updated your BIOS, set BIOS settings to the default settings and then changed SATA operation to AHCI and created your installer following the instructions on the myHack website and downloaded the Extra file, you should be ready to go.

1. After downloading the Extra file to the desktop you created your installer on, place the installer back in and run the myHack app. 

2. This time, choose the "Install Extra" option, choose the Extra file you downloaded to the desktop and choose to install it on the myHack installer you created. 

3. Place the USB installer into the laptop (In the USB 2.0 port on left), boot the system to the one time boot menu by tapping the f12 key during start-up, choose the USB as your boot choice using the boot flag "-v" (without quotes).

4. You should then get to the installer screen, where you should click on Utilities > Disk Utility. In Disk Utility, highlight your hard drive, click on the partition tab, then choose one partition. On the right, for format, choose Mac OSX extended (journaled) and name your OS X drive then below the partition box , check "Options" and choose GUID then apply. Click on the Dis Utility tab, click "QUIT", then choose you new formatted drive and start the install.


5. In the last couple of minutes of the install you will be prompted for your extra folder. Select "Use My Own" and choose the folder you downloaded to the USB stick. Shortly after that you will be prompted three times to delete kexts, delete all three.

6. When this finishes you will get either Install Complete or an Install Failed message (That's Ok -it most likely didn't). Restart your computer, removing the USB installer

7. You should now be at the customization screen, where you select how to set up your Mac. You may get a Invalid Partition Table message - that's OK, just hit Enter to bypass it and we'll correct it next. 

8. Upon completing setting up your computer, if you got the above mentioned Invalid Partition Table message, open up myHack (it's in your Applications Folder) and choose the option to Install Chameleon (making sure to install it on / (your hard drive)). That will correct it. 


If you try playing a DVD movie and get "There was an initialization Error - A valid DVD drive could not be found", download the DVDPlayback.framework.zip below, extract it and use this one to replace the same one in the System/Library/Frameworks folder.


When updating to Mavericks 10.9.2 (or if your installer contains Mavericks 10.9.2), your sound will not work, you need a newly patched Apple HDA.kext (See below). Replace the old one with this one, update your Chameleon version to r2377, go to the org.chameleon.boot.plist and add the following lines using text edit:


Then run MyFix and reboot
