  1. Attempted install onto E6530 and it hung at a certain point that I can upload later... OpenCore Legacy Patcher has (apparently) been able to patch Monterey to handle HD4000. The patcher with this update and not been released yet. Somewhat confused as to the process of taking a OpenCore Legacy Patcher created EFI folder and using it to boot an E6530 laptop.
  2. Success!!! But no bluetooth... Used the standard posted EFI package in the Guides thread and adding "-lilubetaall -wegbeta" to boot args... Updated the kexts using OpenCore configurator... Installed using USB installer... Bluetooth... 1. during boot to install USB... the computer seems to stall at some bluetooth part of the install, but after a long time, it makes it to the install screen 2. during regular boot - testing this out now...
  3. hmmm... Heading home to test this out... Going to install onto a spare HD at first... Created an install usb... Will report shortly.
  4. No HD Graphics 4000 Does this mean that its the end of the line for E6530? OR will the Big Sur drivers work in Monterey?
  5. The shorter cable worked... Is there some sort of cable length limit with HDMI cables?
  6. strange... hooked it up to a monitor with a shorter HDMI cable and it worked... now what's wrong with the TV??? Going to test with the tv and the same shorter cable tonight.
  7. E6230 and No HDMI video signal 1. used the EFI folder that's on the install thread 2. connected HDMI cable to tv 3. display preferences shows the tv and all the various scaling settings & other options, BUT the tv does not display anything or have any video at all 4. the laptop display adjusts with mirroring and other settings AS IF a display is attached 5. Not sure what's wrong... 6. checked my bios settings, but didn't see much to change in the video section 7. i recall HDMI working under Catalina and/or Mojave, but don't always have the laptop
  8. Two issues have emerged... 1. Keyboard does not work (internal usb seems to be off)... 2. No WiFI.. was using the patched kext from https://github.com/khronokernel/IO80211-Patches in an effort to make it work, but still no positive result. I got a BCM94360CS2 card as in the picture (advertised as working OOB on Ebay... But wanted to get the existing card working... I tried optimizing my EFI folder using Open Core sanity utility, but I think I might have done something wrong. Somewhere along the line, I lost an internal USB
  9. Fixed with the patched kext from https://github.com/khronokernel/IO80211-Patches
  10. I have an E6230 with an Apple Airport Card. Using Big Sur using the bootpack found on this site. I have bluetooth, but no WiFi, not sure what to do to activate it. It was working under Catalina.
  11. I created a Clover Boot EFI... I have been able to boot into an Install USB and have managed to install it onto a SSD But upon reboot into Big Sur I get the following in an endless loop... CLOVER.zip
  12. I moved them out of the folder Reset the config file Still got the same result [PCD configuration begin] cons Archive3.zip
  13. Somehow the system hangs at PCI configuration begins... But this is only when one boots from the HD... The exact same EFI folder is OK from a USB drive. I don't know how to fix this. Archive A is from the USB Archive 2 is an updated one on the HD (new OC version...) I only am able to boot from a USB boot drive Please help... ArchiveA.zip Archive2.zip
  14. ... resolved sort of... updated virtualsmc without the extra battery / dell / sensor files... Then was able to install Release Candidate 2... Have not traced down which file caused this...
