  1. Installed most recent drivers, rebuilt caches, and it all got worse: KP at the BT install point. Had to disable BT completely to get the system started. The card is a FENVI (1333 I think).
  2. I have a small issue after the last upgrade to 10.14.6. I have a "generic" WiFi/BT card installed that uses BCM43xx firmware. The WiFi part works great, but the BT end stopped working. Any leads for updated drivers?
  3. I have no idea. The same config works perfectly fine in Sierra. I have a second drive with Sierra installed. The system boots fine in Sierra using Jake Lo's config files. In Mojave,however, it takes an eternity to boot and when it does the screens remain blank.
  4. Well, I managed to make it worse. Now all I have is a black screen. There is output for the displays because I can see the mouse cursor, but the screen is black.
  5. I finally decided to upgrade to Mojave (9020 tower, clover install, latest bootpacks) and everything installs. But I have two nagging problems that make the computer extremely slow: com.apple.displaypolicyd respawns every 10 seconds com.apple.mdworker.shared.XXXXXXX respawns every 10 seconds Any help please?
  6. I am having a hard time upgrading to Mojave in my E7250. Upgrade from App Store KPs after the first reboot, and my attempts to boot using a USB prepared as suggested in this forum and using the EFI and config.plist that I successfully used to install High Sierra KPs as well during the initial installation step. I noticed an issue with my initial HS installation, as I had not enabled the legacy ROMs in BIOS. However, enabling them does not help. Enabling Legacy ROMs KPs my currently installed HS system. I am enclosing the KP screen shot. Any help will be appreciated
  7. Finished installation with a DW1560 WiFi card and everything works fine except BlueTooth. I don't use BlueTooth at all, so this does not bother me much... Nevertheless, is there a trick on getting BlueTooth to work with the DW1560? The system does not detect a BlueTooth card.
  8. Trying to install in a Latitude E7250, BIOS A19. USB boots fine, but screen remains so dark I can't finish selecting options for the installation. I can see the outline of the initial screen, but that's about it. Followed instructions from here: EDIT: Never mind. It's fixed. Somehow my clover install had a very low value for the BackLightLevel parameter.
  9. Any recommendations for replacement WiFi/BT card? (Latitude E7250 of course).
  10. Yes, but the system crashed and I had to reinstall from scratch. There must be some kext in my /L/E folder that is incompatible. I will look around when I have more free time.
  11. Duh. Forgot ApfsDriverLoader. Problem fixed. Still working on sound, but sleep works fine.
  12. Well, it's been over 2 hours and it's still stuck after the first boot. The screen is blank, and there is no progress bar. Is that normal?
  13. I am trying to upgrade directly from Sierra and it's taking a very long time. Was this a quick upgrade?
