Hi,

 

I am wondering if it is possible to install OS X El Capitain on a Dell XPS L502X.

 

Here are the system spec :

  • i7-2670QM
  • 8GB Ram
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000
  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M

I have access to a Mac.

 

I want to install Mac on a different hard drive, ready for this. I also want to keep Windows on my main drive.

 

Thanks

HD 3000 is definitely supported in El Capitan. Nvidia will have to be disable either through the BIOS or with DSDT edit.

Does the system support UEFI?

Is your Windows installed in Legacy or UEFI mode?

Hi.

 

1. It dosen't support UEFI. Windows is Legacy. BUT, there is some modded BIOS, but old one, and I am not sure I should do it.

2. I canno't disabled NIVIDA by BIOS but NVIDIA is only running on HDMI output.

Nvidia is not supported so it'll have to be disabled, but you'll lose HDMI connection.  :-(

To get started, follow my Clover guide. Install Clover using legacy mode

  • Install Clover in the ESP
  • Bootloader/Install boot0af in MBR
  • CloverEFI/CloverEFI 64-bits SATA

Use the E6220 bootpack in post #2, but leave out the SSDT/DSDT in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched.

Boot to Clover GUI, hit F4, then hit the spacebar to select boot without cache.

Post any issue you may encounter.

Start with my instruction above first, see how far it'll go. We'll tackle the nvidia later when you get the extracted raw SSDT/DSDT.

If you can't get it to boot, try adding to boot option 

nv_disable=1
