  1. Any progress on steps for E6420 with NVS4200M? E6420 i7 8 GB NVS-4200-m 128 gB ssd
  2. Did not mean to bump, can't figure out how to delete.
  3. I have purchased an MSI GeForce GTX650 1 GB DDR3 OC hoping that would resolve my issues, however I still get similar behavior when trying to boot with this device. I have done the following: 1. Reinstall using MyHack 2. Remove ApplyTyMCEDriver.kext 3. Add GraphicsEnabler=No to Boot.plist 4. Installed Latest BIOS from Dell (A09) 5. Patched DSDT I still get the same loop of the LoginWindow, MetaData and backupd. Any suggestions at this point?
  4. Ok, so I am starting to wonder if this is a limitation of my BIOS. I can not modify the dedicated memory settings on this Dell. I am wondering if there is any way to modify something in the IntelHD Kexts to trick it into thinking that it is one of the 32 MB settings with no built in display, sort of mirror most of the settings for that configuration anyhow. I'm fairly sure that because it recognizes my card natively as 0x####009 if it isn't trying to load a non existent built in display and causing the HDMI to crash. EDIT I have also attempted to use the Guide posted on tonycrapx86.com, that's how I discovered the cards with 64 MB allocated were for systems with a built in display. I am working to see if I can find a BIOS hack that will allow me to modify the memory size, if not at least I have an open BIOS to get a supported graphics card installed. I will post any results. Thanks to both of you in your attempt to assist me. 7/17 - BIOS Hack not successful, next step new power supply and EVGA GeForce GTx 650
  5. Sorry I misunderstood your post. I followed your instructions and used the USB bootloader to select my OSX HD rather than using the HD boot loader, with the same results. Attached is my zipped up extra folder. When performing the install I had the installer use the default rather than specifying one. Extra.zip
  6. Thank you for the response, however I am a little confused by your instructions. Please forgive me if this is basic stuff, this is my first real attempt at doing a hackintosh. In your first instruction, you suggest "make sure you select your model." Are you referring to the SMBIOS, or EDT patching? If you mean the EDT patches, my system is not listed (not sure if I'm even supportable by this forum). Also, I did try booting from the USB without anything loaded for SMBIOS, as well as configuring a few tests. MacMini6,2, MacMini6,1, iMac13,1, iMac12,1 with the iMac having the same result and MacMini not getting to the second Apple logo. I should also note that when I used MyHack to perform the installation, I had to boot using the -x parameter. When the installer went to the second apple screen I got the color wheel spinning. I left it like this for an hour, but never went to the installer.
  7. So far this looks more promising. I have re-installed OS X 10.8.4 using MyHack and EDP. Now when I boot I go from the MyHack logo -> Apple Logo with arrow -> Black screen (white top left corner). If I push the power button twice I get a white screen with no response. I am attaching my new System.log, please let me know if there is any other information that I can provide to assist.

  8. I need some help. I have installed OS X 10.8.4 using unifail and currently I am only able to boot into Safe mode using the -x boot parameter. I am running on: Inspiron 660 i5 3330 3.0 GHz 8 GB DDR3 1600 RAM Intel HD 2500 Graphics Controller Realtek GBE Family Controller (RTL811F) Dell DW1506 Wireless Cirrus Logic HD Audio 1 TB HDD I have a patched DSDT and SSDT thanks to EMlyDinEsh at OSXLatitude (attached), and can get the OS to recognize my graphics controller and load at full resolution using safe mode (connected with HDMI). However, when I attempt a normal boot I get a loop of com.apple.LoginWindow, com.apple.Backupd, and com.apple.metdata.mds. I have attempted to use different SMBIOS combos (including the one provided by OSXLatitude) as well as using the GraphicsEnabler=Yes and directly injecting my device ID in the PLIST. I have also tried with just the patched DSDT and SSDT with no reference to graphics in the PLIST (same results). (see attached system.log.txt) Selected multifail Options (screenshot I am using the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.Kext from EMlyDinEsH at https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1945-dsdtssdt-patching/ Attached in the ZIP are the DSDT, SSDT, PLIST, multifail and Sysinfo screenshots, system report dump, and System.Log for this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Support_Info.zip
  9. Hi, I just sent the dumped files from a Dell Inspiron 660 to the specified email address. Inspiron 660 Intel i5 3330 8 GB DDR3 1600 Intel HD 2500 Dell 0XR1GT Motherboard Bios Version A05 Dell Wireless 1506 Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
