  1. I finally managed to get audio working! It's probably that the latest versions of the Lilu and AppleALC kexts don't accept the legacy injection for the layout-id anymore. I found the following information I used Hackintool in order to generate the necessary code to copy and paste into the existing config.plist (removing the placeholders with hashes which were in there from Rehabman's config.plist) and I now have audio!
  2. I've done a clean install of Mojave 10.14.4 on a Dell Latitude E6440 with 4300M, 8GB RAM, 250GB SSD and Intel HD 4600 Graphics. I created the installer using the command line: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/"Untitled" --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app --nointeraction Then installed the latest Clover and added the bare minimum drivers and kexts in order to run the installation. The installation went perfectly. It even felt like I was installing onto a real MacBook! Post install I installed Clover onto the main HD and copied over the EFI folder from the USB stick over the one installed by Clover. Using FixHPET in clover config I have managed to enable all USB and Bluetooth. The final issue is with audio. I have installed the latest AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext and have used the option in Devices > Audio > Inject = 12 as per what I've found using a search. After rebooting, no audio. I've also tried using the AppleHDA_ALC292.kext and CodecCommander.kext in /Library/Extensions after removing AppleALC.kext and rebuilding kext caches and setting the inject to 1 and rebooting - no audio. I'm not sure what else to try as either method is so simple. I have not patched / used a dsdt and using Clover to handle all of the hot patching. Any advice would be well received! I've attached my current EFI folder as the laptop does not have an internet connection (no wifi as it's intel) so can't use the linked to tool. current E6440 efi.zip
  3. Hi Guys - I've recently purchased a Dell E6440 in really good condition with the intent of installing OSX on it. I found Jake's guide: And it all seems fairly straight forward which is a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is that it appears on the surface that there's only some simple installations and some drag / drop of folders, the bad thing for me anyway is that if you're following the instructions blindly then you don't have much chance of troubleshooting the issue if something goes wrong which is where I'm at now. I updated the laptop to the latest A23 firmware using Windows as soon as I got it to make sure that everything's up to date. It also has 8GB of RAM and an SSD installed. I downloaded both the generic EFI pack and the E6440_A14_HS one. Downloaded the High Sierra installer from Apple, used the create installer command in the terminal to create the installer on the USB Downloaded the latest version of Clover and installed it onto the USB using the options specified in the tutorial (not too sure why it specifies any options in particular as the next step has you replacing everything in the EFI partition anyway) Copied the EFI folder from the generic EFI pack over the one on the USB stick (copy not merge) Copied the contents of E6440_A14_HS into the eft/clover/ folder BIOS settings: Restored to defaults Set AHCI Set UEFI boot Inserted the USB stick into the left port, booted, selected the installer from the clover menu and then the installer stopped very shortly after with the error "failed getting NVRAM" I have managed to get the installer working by: Removing the patched files in the ACPI folder Using clover configurator to edit the config.plist removing the references to the deleted patched files and adding fix regions flag (without this flag it would hang with Executed 1 blocks of module-level executable AML code) This leaves me with no audio or wifi although from what I can gather there's no hope in getting the built in wifi working if it's by Intel. Copying back the contents from the E6440_A14_HS archive bricks the installation. Is there a reason why the process does not work without the changes I mentioned above? Are the patched files needed for audio to work? Any advice would be awesome. I don't fully understand what's what yet as I've only had to copy a couple of folders after installing clover which doesn't teach me anything
