Dell Inspirion 15 3521,Mavericks


Recommended Posts

I have used MyHack app to install Mavericks on my dell laptop,i had to use safe mode  to boot into usb installer otherwise i would just have an apple logo grey screen with cursor spinning...but now after installation i still have to boot from safe mode that too with instllaller USB plugged in(gives some GPT0 error otherwise)

also is this machine already being supported?

Try and disable your discrete video card or the integrated GPU in BIOS to see if it makes any difference.


Also, do try and identify your exact wireless card model as Intel cards are unsupported and not all Broadcom/Atheros/Realtek/others are supported.

well been through many websites and whole of bios couldn't find any option to disable GPU though i have it in my desktop BIOS,is there any boot flag that i could pass in to do that?

what could be other way to get around the problem? is it that /Extra folder was wrong?

Don't get confused: making a donation is in no way linked to providing support. This not the way OSXL operates.


You'll get support along your own research path by posting your own trials and findings. Naturally, it helps if the crew of an existing forum member has a similar model to yours, but if it's not the case, you need to be patient I'm afraid...

Re: GPT0 error, that sounds like the good old 4K sector issue and you will find the fix for that with a search on the forum.


Regarding the stuck spinning wheel under Apple logo, the best is to boot with -v option and post us the details of where things appear to hang in the boot process.
