  1. Sierra works fine (posting this message from it), but can't boot High Sierra installation. Already prepared install USB two times, but there was no difference. E7450 with discreet graphics using official High Sierra from store EFI_4200.zip, E7450_A15_Disabled-840m.zip and Clover Boot 4220. Any idea what I might be missing?
  2. In order to resolve first issue, be sure that you have disabled hibernation. Check FAQ section.
  3. TP-LINK USB Adapter TL-WN725N works like a charm with Sierra.
  4. Fn key doesn't work at all. First I though I had a problem with karabiner elements, but I actually have a problem with non-working Fn key. Every key tested with Karabiner-EventViewer gives some value. Fn key gives nothing. Is there any help? EDIT: After lot of googling I found out that on some keyboards, the Fn key is only seen by the keyboard itself, so it can't be seen by Karabiner Elements. Since Fn + F10 changes illumination intensity of my laptop keyboard without any problem, Fn key definitely works as expected. This means that every problem that I have is related to Karabiner Elements. I din't found option to delete this message, but it might be good to delete it in order to avoid confusion, especially since some time ago I posted another similar message where I properly blame Karabiner Elements for my problems.
  5. Now I understand. Unfortunately it is Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265. Looks like I always have at least one "special" component in any of my laptops, that doesn't work, make problems or is incompatible with at least one OS.
  6. I just noticed that I have no Wi-Fi at all. In System Presences / Network I can only see Ethernet and BlueTooth. I tried to replace FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi and FakePCIID in /Library/Extensions with new ones from RehabMan-FakePCIID-2017-0527.zip and to fix permissions and rebuild cacse as instructed here https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/9740-solved-dell-latitude-e7450-intel-5500-with-discrete-nvidia-840m/?p=69179 There is no change. I guess I already had same files since I used updated bootpack.
  7. I successfully installed Sierra on E7450 with 840m. I just have one small issue with Karabiner-Elements. I just can't make F11 and F12 keys to work. EDIT: Everything work if Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys is off. Is there a way to use Fn+F11 and Fn+F12 instead of F11 and F12 for screen brightness?
  8. Enabling Legacy in BIOS helped. I installed everything with only one small issue after that. ssdPRGen complained that my i7-5600u was unknown. Downloaded new version and everything worked fine. Thank you.
  9. Thank you for quick reply Jake. EDIT: I need to edit my complete post now in order to avoid possible confusion. You posted two different archives with same name and I downloaded both of them. I guess I somehow managed to add wrong one to EFI and I was getting service exited with abnormal code 1 errors So I compared files from E7450_A15_Disabled-840m.zip and E7450_840m.zip and noticed few differences in config.plist, but most noticeable difference that I noticed was (not) using NewWay <key>NewWay_80000000</key> <true/> I also noticed that some files in ACPI/patched folder are not same. Those two files are different: DSDT.aml SSDT-11.aml So I tired to replace files that I mentioned, but I still had same problem. Then I tried again with EFI_4128.zip and E7450_A15_Disabled-840m.zip. Replaced Boot and Clover folders on USB and tried again. It boots, but I have garbled screen again. I guess I need to check everything again, since I need to be sure that this time I did everything properly. btw. I knew that mentioned files were update only, so I tried to make bootpack myself before I posted here. I combined files from E7450_Sierra.zip, E7450_840m.zip and RehabMan-FakePCIID-2017-0527.zip, and then add those to EFI_v4119.zip, but obviously I messed something up.
  10. I have E7450 (with 840m). BIOS version is A15. Latest Sierra install form app store. I followed Jake Lo's guides: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8514-dell-latitude-e7450-clover-uefi-only/ https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-precision-clover-guide/ I used EFI_v4119.zip generic EFI, replaced some files with those from E7450_840m.zip as per instructions here https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/9740-solved-dell-latitude-e7450-intel-5500-with-discrete-nvidia-840m/?p=69173 Patched both 0x15b and 0x15c, changed SATA mode to AHCI. Booting goes fine, but unfortunately initial screen where I should select language is garbled and unusable. Any advice? What I am doing (did) wrong?
