Inspiron 1520 nVidia 8400GS: trouble with ML 10.8.5


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have an old Dell laptop 1520 core 2 duo GF 8400GS processor T5250 has established a very long time 10.6.8 and 10.7.5. almost everything works. At this time, I turned on a separate hard drive installed ML 10.8.5 system boot from a flash card Clover I go in and everything freezes and does not respond in a few seconds. The system simply stops, how to be? help me please.

In order to help you, please provide:

  • details of installation method
  • pack your used (patched BIOS tables, kexts, etc.)
  • BIOS settings

I would recommend you use myHack v3.3.1 with a genuine copy of ML 10.8.5 (or earlier) and probably re-use some of the files from the D630 nVidia pack. The D630 packs are available here.


Ideally, please post the exact hardware specs of your system (chipset, LAN, audio, wireless, etc.) so we can determine which kexts are appropriate or applicable. It should not be difficult since you already run SL 10.6.8 and Lion 10.7.5.
