  1. I forget... is the D830 one where you need to set the SATA mode to AHCI?
  2. I suppose you also cleaned the fan and applied new thermal paste, right? My 630 (Intel) would overheat to the point of shutdown until I pulled the fan, cleaned out the fur lurking within and repasted the CPU. It ran very cool after that.
  3. That sounds like the SSDT file is not compatible. You could try booting without one, though I suspect you'd get the same KP.
  4. I did. I've managed to get 10.9.1 installed and upgraded to 10.9.4 using your DSDT with the extras from JakeLo back in post #16. (That one has the SSDT for my CPU.) The only problem is that I lost sound in the 10.9.4 upgrade. I've tried the version of AppleHDA.kext from your package and from both of Jake's packages, but no luck. Still checking threads for the fix for that one. Other than that, all is well. Thanks, everyone.
  5. Well, I downloaded the Extra-Alejandro.zip file linked in JakeLo's signature. That gets me a kernel panic in AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (same as in post #3 of this thread). Next I tried the Extra pack JakeLo posted in #16 to address the same issue. That gets me to the plaid screen. So, I then tried adding the DSDT-HDMI.aml from the first pack (with appropriate changes to the Chamelon plist for DSDT name and resolution). Still going to plaid. Further thoughts?
  6. Does Disk Utility (on the Installer disk) see the drive?
  7. I'm hoping someone can offer some advice. I have an E6420, i5-2540M processor, Intel HD 3000 graphics (no Optimus) and BIOS A21. I downloaded the packages from the first post and have built myHack installers both with and without the included Extras. In any case, the USB drive boots to the point where I should see the installer desktop. Instead, I get a "plaid" screen (squares and bars) which fades to white over time. Has anyone seen something like this before? Any suggestions? Thanks...
  8. One more question... I was doing some more reading and saw comments to the effect that several things like Connect To Server and Bluetooth pairing don't work on the resulting system. Is that your experience with your D620? If so, it may be something of a dealbreaker for me. Thanks...
  9. Drat! So, the question is- what is causing the hang on my installer? It looks like the last significant line of output is "LPC initialization failed" with something about C-states not initialized. Any thoughts on how to debug this?
  10. I got it into my head today to try and update my D820n (Quadro 110) with C2D processor from Lion to ML. I created a myHack installer for 10.8.5 using the Extra pack from https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2466-dell-latitude-d620-nvidia-nvs-110m-ml-with-full-qeci/ . Booting with both the -x and -v options, I can see that it gets to a point just after detecting the wireless card and then hangs. I'm not sure where to proceed from here. My first question would be whether these instructions even work for 10.8.5 as they appear to have been written when 10.8.2 was current. Also, is there an issue because I used the D620 Extras; if so, can you point me to a set of D820 extras that might work? Thanks...
  11. I wouldn't expect it to show under LSPCI as, I'm pretty sure, it is a USB webcam. Does it show up in System Information under USB?
  12. My understanding is that it is a Mavericks thing. You can always run Safari and surf over to https://gotofail.com which should be the definitive answer.
