    Why do you want to install such an old OS X version when this laptop fully supports macOS High Sierra? As for the set of kexts required for this model, I'm pretty sure you'll find them in existing threads or JakeLo's multi-platform guides. Look those up.

    If you want to install BS, just make sure to use new Clover that has OC quirks added (v5124), and of course update to the latest kexts.

    1) SSDT-HPET is required for Audio, it's basically the same for across the board. The extra patches I have experienced to not make a difference added or not. You can experiment adding them 2) I can't remember why I opt for 00001B19, try 00001619. If you lose external video connection switching then that might be why. Also check to see if you get more CPU States switching. Currently for me with 00001B19, I have 30. You can check by launching IORegistryExplorer, under CPU0/AppleACPICPU/x86PlatformPlugin 3) Yes, the 2 values are commented out so they're disabled. They were needed earlier on when testing BS. Latest OC has fixed that, you can delete them 4) You can try MBP13,2 and of course need add NoTouchID to the configuration. Again see #2 if it make a better option 5) No changes needed when switching higher resolution display. Only thing I could think of is if it's a touchscreen, then you'll need to additional kexts (ie VoodooI2C + satellite) 6) When checking the Config file with OC Sanity Checker, it recommends it but I don't see it's needed for audio to work with it already declared in Device Properties... and it's alcid=11, not 1. Post your results when you make those changes. Maybe it'll be better than what I'm using.

    assuming your Micron is an NVMe drive, your PCI path is incorrect. Should be according to the location of my NVMe drive PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1d,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)

    I meant the link to VoodooPS2, you mentioned version 2.7 but I guess you mean 2.1.7. Have you tried VoodooSMBUS/VoodooRMI I has suggested on the 1st page? Post your IOReg files, let's see if it's supported

    Known issue with OC dual booting with Windows. I just select Windows from BIOS boot option by pressing F12 Now that Clover v5124 supports BS, you can try that.

    I'm sending my opencore files with tools (propertree, GenSMBIOS). I'm using dw1820a, i removed pci section in config.plist file, but kexts still in efi. I changed smbios info, if you want, you can change again. This is my latest working opencore efi sample. I followed this guide for opencore post-install settings. That you must not forget, if you changed anything in opencore folder via propertree, for instance add/remove SSDT or kext, use "cmd + control + r" keys. This key combinations are arrange the config.plist file easily. And then cmd + s for save. After change efi, if your device not boot, clear NVRAM in opencore boot menu. There are many resources on opencore on the internet. Before you edit the efi file in NVME, always do it with a usb stick. Otherwise, the running system may become not boot. If usb efi boots normally, copy usb efi folder to nvme efi. Hope it helps. Optiplex_Opencore_05_10_2020.7z

    should be a patch under KextToPatch. Otherwise it can be done in the terminal Check in system information under Sata/Sata express to verify if Trim is enabled or not sudo trimforce enable sudo trimforce disable

    Give this a try, updated all the kext, added a couple of SSDT's and updated the Config. You'll need to fix your USBPortsE5x70.kext. The purpose of the kexts is to have only 15 ports or less as required by latest MacOS. Your kext has 21, way over the limit and I doubt it has that many USB ports on that system. I only see internal and USB 3.0 and none USB 2.0 on your kext. You should be testing each external USB ports with an USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 devices, changing the default setting in Hackintool. For example, if you have 3 external USB ports, you should end up with (3) USB 3.0 ports (SSxx) and (3) USB 2.0 ports (HSxx) and a few internals like BT, Webcam, and SmartCard if it exists.

    It's been reported that Mojave's Security Update 2020-005 causes performance issues due to unexpected memory usage. After installation of the update, a very significant quantity of RAM is used as reported in Activity Monitor app where App Memory/Wired Memory/Compressed are at much higher level than before the update. It's a very impacting situation for systems with 4GB or RAM which will suffer severe performance degradation. Think twice before installing!

    It's entirely up to you. There's a chance you won't see much difference in terms of CPU power management and performance between patched kernel and unlocked CFG register/variable. But I guess, only experimentation can tell...

    Built an Hackintosh Recently with the following Specs: Atermiter X79G motherboard 45$ Xeon E5-2650V2 ~50$ 64GB DDR3 ECC RAM Nvidia GT 710 graphic card: sanddisk 500GB SSD You can directly install Mojave without modifying anything in the bios... using this EFI.. But if you have to install/upgrade to Catalina 10.15.2, before installing or upgrading Disable Virtualization support - CPU configuration disable VTX-D - North bridge. Disable USB ECHI support Post installation you can enable them again. Had no issues with virtualization performance etc... Boots in less than 10 seconds. All working - except small static in AUDIO... (hardly noticeable, but goes away once you play something)... EFI_desktop.zip

    You're extracting those raw vfiles out of a complete dev package. Download the complete package from parent level and you may compile the .asl files with the provided makefile. These .asl files are plain source code. You may rename the extension to .dsl to open them in MaciASL app. MaciASL uses .dsl extension for source code and .aml extension for compiled code. Here, the .asl files are meant to be compiled with the command line (Intel) iasl tool through the makefile. If you open up the makefile with a text editor, you'll see how it operates. As for errors, well they can depend on the ACPI version the code is based on and the ACPI version the compiler will be using. Check your MaciASL settings here. After a few years with good old DSDTEditor, I switched to rehabman's version of MaciASL several years ago and have been using that same version without problems ever since. Of course, I had to get into ACPI coding to be able to fix DSDT/SSDT when compiler returns errors... https://github.com/RehabMan/Intel-iasl https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-MaciASL-patchmatic

    The parent device is 8086:1576, i.e. DSL6340 Thunderbolt 3 Bridge [Alpine Ridge 2C 2015]. The XHC5 device you see underneath is the associated DSL6340 USB3.1 controller. Seeing an "XHCx" device is what you want.

    RP05 is the PCIe root port (hence RP). RP05.PXSX and/or RP05.UPSB are the actual TB/USB-c PCIe devices.

    Yes, this may happen from time to time. Could be a bug in AppleALC, I'm not too sure. Solution is to put the laptop to sleep and wake it after a couple of seconds or reboot. Check that you use latest versions of Lilu, AppleALC and CodecCommander and update if required. You may use Clover Configurator app to that effect.

    Hi everyone, I successfully installed Big Sur beta 4 on my Latitude E 7450 using OpenCore 0.6.0. The machine is already running Catalina 10.15.6 based on Jake Lo's guide, so I will not repeat the same story (especially for specs). I only underline that this is the iGPU only model (no dGPU to be disabled here). Working: - keyboard, trackpad and trackstick (only with ApplePS2Controller provided in Jake Lo's packages. Latest VoodooPS2Controller will not be useful for this ALPS touchpad) - Wifi (thanks to Jake Lo patch) using a Dell DW1560 (as per signature) - Graphic card acceleration - Screen backlight - Bluetooth - Audio - SD card reader Not working - Bluetooth (and webcam) - Audio - Fingerprint sensor (of course, as always) - SD card reader Not tested - SD card reader (supposed not working) Hackintool (and IORegistry, of course) is able to recognize both audio and EH01 usb controller, but they seems to be "inactive" and I don't know how to fix them. Fortunately, USB3 is working, otherwise I couldn't install macOS since I used an external WD HD on a USB3 caddy. In any case, I share my EFI for development and further testing, especially for @Jake Lo. Credits: Jake Lo (and all the guys and teams who inspired him for his original clover guide) EDIT: Bluetooth, webcam and Audio work fixing IRQ issues by adding SSDT-HPET (and related patches) to ACPI. SSDT-PLUG is actually useless (you can even turn it off from the config.plist). I updated the EFI folder. EDIT 2: Properly injected device properties made the SD card reader working again. Thanks Jake! I uploaded the working EFI Updates: Big Sur Beta 5 (20A5354i) installed through software updates Big Sur Beta 6 (20A5364e) installed through software updates Big Sur Beta 7 (20A5374g) installed through software updates Big Sur Beta 9 (20A5384c) installed through software updates Enjoy!

    Last update: 22 Mar 2020 EDP being in semi-permanent revamp, here are full packs for the Latitude D620/D630 series. The packs do not require any subsequent EDP tuning at all, they provide everything required to obtain a fully working system (CPU power management, graphics, LAN, audio, keyboard, trackpad), non-OOB wireless, bluetooth and any other devices excluded of course. However, some manual tuning for proper Sleep/Wake operation is required: setting hibernation mode to plain old sleep and deleting any eventual sleep image file. This is done through the following Terminal commands upon final OS X installation: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 sudo pmset -a hibernatefile /dev/null sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage Vanilla support stops at Lion 10.7.5 for all Intel GMA based models and the D620 nVidia due to GPU support limitations. For those systems, ML may be installed and tuned back to 32bit operation through MLPF hack. Look at the Dell installation guides forum subsection for MLPF'ed ML guides and packs. It's not 100% bug-free though... Only the D630 nVidia supports vanilla installation of Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra and High Sierra (Sierra & HiSie only with Penryn CPUs). For all models, read the Performance tuning thread for CPU + GPU tuning if required but the FakeSMC kext included in the packs below brings it all. D620 GMA950 LoRes (WXGA 1280x800): D620_GMA950_LoRes_10.6.8_Pack.zip D620_GMA950_LoRes_10.7.5_Pack.zip D620 GMA950 HiRes (WXGA+ 1440x900): D620_GMA950_HiRes_10.6.8_Pack.zip D620_GMA950_HiRes_10.7.5_Pack.zip D620 nVidia Quadro 110M (all res): D620_NV110m_10.6.8_Pack.zip D620_NV110m_10.7.5_Pack.zip D630 GMA X3100 LoRes (WXGA 1280x800): D630_X3100_LoRes_10.6.8.zip D630_X3100_LoRes_10.7.5_Pack.zip D630 GMA X3100 HiRes (WXGA+ 1440x900): D630_X3100_HiRes_10.6.8.zip D630_X3100_HiRes_10.7.5_Pack.zip D630 nVidia Quadro NVS 135M (all res): D630_NV135m_10.6.8_Pack.zip D630_NV135m_10.7.5_Pack.zip D630_NV135m_10.8.5_Pack.zip D630_NV135m_10.9.5_Pack.zip D630_NV135m_10.10.5_Pack.zip D630_NV135m_10.11_Pack.zip D630 nVidia Quadro NVS 135M + Penryn C2D CPUs (all res): D630_NV135m_10.12_and_10.13_Pack.zip NB: MyHack highly recommended for installation of Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks. Use myHack v3.3.1, except for SL which requires v3.1.2 (there's a bug related to SL in v3.3.1). For Yosemite and beyond, we recommend manual USB installer creation using instructions that have been detailed in numerous guides posted here. NB: For Chameleon-based Yosemite installations (i.e. no Clover or otherwise), not all kexts load from /E/E. Eg: VoodooHDA + HDADisabler or lspcidrv. In such cases, copy the kexts to /L/E, repair permissions and rebuild the cache with the following Terminal commands: sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R 0:0 /Library/Extensions sudo touch /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -Boot -U / Update to Chameleon r2468 is recommended for proper hardware support such as good CPU detection. Chameleon-2.3svn-r2468.pkg.zip NB: For Enoch-based Yos/EC/Sierra installations (recent Enoch versions such as r2795 and beyond for instance), you may use a kernel.plist file in /Extra with parameter KernelBooter_kexts set to Yes to load kexts from /E/E directly. Those kexts will not natively be considered for prelinked kernel/kext cache generation so boot time will be a little slower. To maximise boot time, you can either move kexts from /E/E to /L/E or copy them from /E/E to /L/E and set KernelBooter_kexts to No. You will then repair permissions and rebuild the cache as detailed above. macOS Sierra and later can only be installed on D630 nVidia models fitted with a Penryn FSB800 C2D CPU (e.g.: T6xxx, T8xxx, T9xxx).

    Nawcom's sort of disappeared from the Hackintosh scene but tribute can still be paid to him and his great tools. It sure is dated today but it did the business back in the days and greatly so. These may still be useful for those novices who want to setup a Hackintosh on a platform capable to run Snow Leopard but have no access to a Mac or an existing Hack. Snow Leopard remains the Mac OS X version from which many platforms can upgrade to subsequent OS X/macOS versions as long as their profile (SMBIOS) meets the requirements. Provided one has the Snow Leopard retail DVD or a USB key with retail SL restored to it, Nawcom's modCD or modUSB can be very useful to setup a temporary basic SL installation to work from. It does not have to be fully tuned up... Nawcom's tools are hard to find on the Net today, so here are copies it. I hope (and think) Nawcom's would not mind... OSX86_ModCD-032311-151021.zip -> rename from .zip to .iso and burn the image to a CD/DVD (can be done from Windows or Linux) OSX86_ModUSB.pkg.zip -> unzip this Mac app and run from OS X to create a bootable USB installer (cannot be used in Windows/Linux)

    Annoying... When running OS X on an Intel Series 330 SATA-III (6Gb/s) SSD, boot time is dramatically impacted if the IOAHCIBlockStorage kext is binary patched to enable TRIM support (binmod of IOAHCIBlockStorage to replace hex string 00 41 50 50 4C 45 20 53 53 44 00 (="APPLE SSD") by a string of 00s). I've made some comparisons with my Dell Latitude E6440: 1) Vanilla kext - No TRIM support: . boot time Mavericks 10.9.5 (13F1077): ~7s . boot time Yosemite 10.10.3 (14D136): ~8s 2) bin-patched kext - TRIM support: . boot time Mavericks 10.9.5 (13F1077): ~46s . boot time Yosemite 10.10.3 (14D136): ~50s I had previously read similar reports but I'm still a bit baffled as I do not experience such slowdowns on my D630 (ICH8M controller, SATA-II 3Gb/s) fitted with a SATA-III (6Gb/s) 128Go SAMSUNG PM830 + TRIM enabled. Will need to try a swap out to try and verify if it could be controller related or SSD related.

    Having replaced the Intel SSD by a 256Go Samsung SM841N mSATA SSD, I can report that the issue lies with the Intel drive itself. Slow boots cannot be reproduced neither with the Samsung mSATA SSD, nor with the Samsung PM830 SSD whether fitted to my SATA-II Latitude D630 or my SATA-III Latitude E6220. However, slow boots are reproduced with the Intel SSD when fitted to the D630 and the E6220.
