  1. Greetings folks, Attempting to install El Capitan on my Latitude E6420. Specs are as follows: CPU: Intel Core i7-2640M RAM: 4 GB (Single DIMM) DDR3 1333 MHz HDD: 320 GB WD Black GPU: Intel HD 3000 WLAN: Intel Wireless (Ordered DW1510) Display: 1600x900 Followed https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-el-capitan-clover-guide/&do=findComment&comment=54633 to create USB installer and install El Capitan (Using newest Install OS X El Capitan app and newest Clover r3424), using bootpack from that guide. El Capitan installed fine with no issues. I am unable to boot into the install of El Capitan, however. After rebooting the machine after installing El Capitan and attempting to boot into my Macintosh HD through the Clover bootloader (on the USB installer), I get this KP: I have not heard of anybody encountering this issue so I am not sure if I am on my own, would just like to know if anybody has any suggestions. Cheers, John
  2. peekstar, can you confirm if HDMI is working or not?
  3. Hey jadajada, Try using a different audio driver in EDP. There are a few to choose from.
  4. The 1395 will work with a modified kext that adds the Device IDs.
  5. GT 640 probably won't help you much either... it still requires GraphicsEnabler=Yes, and it still may show Unknown for graphics. If it does even after the multifail fix, you can try using the chimera (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) bootloader.
  6. Though we are reluctant to even discussing tonycrapx86 software whatsoever, there is actually a fix for this in multifail. If you're feeling adventorous, download multifail and run it. Go into Drivers & Bootloaders -> Drivers -> Graphics and select NVIDIA Fermi OpenCL Patch. Then select NVIDIA Retail 304.00.00f20 OpenCL Patch and 10.8.x OpenCL Patch. Then install and when done, don't run myFix but make sure that GraphicsEnabler is set to Yes and reboot. Go into System Profiler and see what shows up, and report back w/ results.
  7. Hello, Recently I have started to research installing Mountain Lion on a Dell Inspiron 620 desktop. Currently, this machine is running OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2. Specs of mine are: 3.0 GHz Intel Core i5-2320 Sandy Bridge Processor 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM NVidia GeForce GT 620 Conexant HD Audio Only issues at this current point in time is: 1. Sleep does not work. Neither native nor with SleepEnabler kext. 2. With VoodooHDA, there are some cracking sounds from the speakers at times. Barely, but it is quite annoying when it occurs. That is pretty much it. As far as graphics goes, you will need to replace the card with a supported one or use integrated by removing your card. If your Inspiron 620 came with a WiFi card (Particularly the Dell Wireless 1502), it is not supported under OS X. Ethernet works though, so does all the USB ports and audio ports. Media card reader does work as well. So pretty much everything works, but I have only tested on Mountain Lion and not Lion. For bootpack, I used the standard myHack generic bootpack. This machine should be in EDP very soon, and when it is, I will make a note in this topic. One last note, because the BIOS of this machine is pretty locked down, it will need to be flashed to a modified BIOS to be able to access the SATA configurations so SATA mode can be changed to AHCI mode from IDE mode. I have attached the BIOS with flashing directions *NOTE* I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK YOUR MACHINES FROM FLASHING. IT WILL WORK IF YOU FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS AND DO NOT POWER OFF MACHINE Take care, John DellInspiron620A04UnlockedBIOS.zip

    Yes. Reinstall and when it asks, select Use Your Own Extra and select the one from the USB stick. You have to download the EDP app from the website. Go to EDP on the top bar of the site and go to Download and download it. That's what I mean by run it, and then when it is done installing make a machine configuration. In your case, Latitude E6400. And no, after you run EDP you won't have to type -v -f arch=i386 again.

    Okay first, when installing DO NOT USE GENERIC EXTRA. Select "Use Your Own" and select the Extra folder from the USB stick. next boot -v -f arch=i386, install 10.7.4 and run EDP. Then install Chameleon and reboot. If that doesn't help you, remake the USB stick, but instead of having myHack install the Extra, delete the Extra from the USB stick and replace it with the bootpack for your system, then go into myHack and run myFix in Full mode on your USB stick and try. Also, your WiFi requires a patched kext. Moving to E6xxx subforum inside the Dell forum.
  10. If you want, you can contact Leon on the forums. Send him a personal message and you guys can discuss it from there. It would be a great help
  11. We aren't able to get ML running on these systems yet. I suggest you wait a while because we probably won't have it working for a few weeks
  12. We are working on it... the issue is that the crew member with this system has been inactive for a while so we can't do any tests.
  13. It will fit but it is underpowered. A 667mhz bus is the highest it will go and it works the best
  14. Also try Apple's power management. In some cases it will cause higher CPU temp but sleep should work
