I have stock Dell E6440 with 900p screen.

 

With default MacOSX (myHack or any other boot loader) I can't get into setup screen (just reboots due to Haswell CPU), I've found bootpack for E5440 and I've changed CPU from i7 to i5 (found on forum), now Dell start up to setup screen (with DVD removed and only from hard drive) but when I want to install OS I got 

"The OS X installation couldn't be completed" and along with it panic(CPU 2 caller).

 

 

I've tried almost everything what I managed to find but no luck.

 

 

Any has similar laptop and managed to install Mac on it ???

 

I've attached screen of errors :/

Rebuild your Installer, when you get the prompt to patch MBR, select NO. 

You can also look at this if you don't want to rebuild the installer or if you want to use MBR.

Thanks. But I want to use MBR and I can't method how to apply MBR patch correctly to MyHack (link in that thread links to totally different method, I can't use it as I need to use downloaded patch for my laptop).

 

Any idea how to use MyHack on this laptop along with Windows (as I can't work on Mac (I'm .NET developer) I can't ditch Windows) ?

You can boot both OS's on GUID format assuming Win7 64 bit and above. Read more on how to do it here.

I will be looking into it shortly.

 

I've managed to install Mac OS X, after many tries. 

 

But seems that Intel WiFi is not working (6235) and also Audio (ALC3226) is not working.

 

Is there any chance that drivers for Dell E6440 will be created in near future ?
