  1. You need to get the keyboard and mousepad work first. Are you using myHack and select custom Extra, I think E6320 is of the same spec of E6220. It should work without installing EDP. Only need bootpack
  2. Agreed. Need a hackintosh to prepare your own USB stick installer
  3. Also looking for support of this finger print reader in OSX. Help is much appreciate
  4. I try on a machine with BIOS A08. restart fix is there in the boot.plist. I notice that when I wait for long enough time, it will shut down. PS. I take out the bootpack DSDT and replace with an extracted DSDT.aml by using DSDT Editor. Sleep function works perfectly. Just like what it behaves in Windows Only Shutdown and restart have this problem
  5. sometimes, the PS2 files need to be in the S/L/E to make them work
  6. Dakewake = 0 does not work
  7. I wish to share my experience to install multiboot (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) in Dell machine. In fact every machine works The beauty of Dell machine is that it can allow to boot from any device including modular bay HDD (swap from DVD-RW drive). Few key points to be noted before you start 1. BIOS must be in AHCI mode but not IRRT. Otherwise harddisk cannot be seen 2. Patience 3. External harddisk to temporary store back up images 4. I usually start with a MBR partition harddisk. For Windows 7/8, remember to partition the new harddisk first into the space you want. Also format the partition for Windows. For the OSX partition, I will make it as FAT 32. If you have the Acronis True Image Program, the Disk Director program included can allow me to make the partition type as AF. But FAT 32 is ok In my harddisk, the partition is at the following order 1. Windows 2. Data common for both OS 3. OSX STEP 1 With the above, I first install Windows. If I have already partitioned the harddisk and format this partition as NTFS, Windows installer will go straight into the designated partition and get installed. Once completed, reboot and update to get a working copy of Windows 7 or 8. By this way, you will notice that Windows 7 or 8 is sitting at only one partition of the harddisk but not two. This helps to allow me to back up, migrate and remove to a new harddisk with the greatest flexibility. ** I suggest to back up the working Windows 7 or 8 partition now as re-installation from the DVD, updating patches and fixes take hours. STEP 2 I use myHack and USB stick method. After using disk utility to format as Mac OSX journal partition, install the OSX into that partition. Upon completed and reboot, remember to use the myHack USB stick again to boot first as the chamelion bootloader has not yet properly installed. After I select the harddisk OSX partition to boot, launch myHack to install chamelion into the harddisk OSX partition. For Dell Latitude notebook, I can run EDP to fix various hardware issues. Once complete, when the machine is reboot, I can have chamelion as default boot loader and can select Windows or OSX. Either can boot up without problem I will write further to include more information to tweak Reference: Post #11 of https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/642-hackintosh-triple-boot/
  8. I install via myHack and bootpack on a Mountain Lion release version. Installation is ok but kernel panic on first run of EDP package. It occurs in dealing with the permission repair etc. Upon reboot with -v -f, it boots and almost everything works. Only problem is 1. reboot - not properly reboot and hang 2. shutdown - white screen with cursor. When shutdown button is pressed, it will show up CPU halted but restart shows an error message of failed shutdown. Any suggestion??
  9. how is your windows 7 backup and restored? Did you have the hidden partition installed by Windows 7? When you install Windows 7/8, always partition the harddisk into a large enough partition first. Do not allow windows installer to create the partition from a new harddisk. It always creates a hidden 100M partition in front of the C-drive. This is like EFI boot partition containing boot files but creates a lot of problem in backing/restoring and migrating to other disk. My preferred windows backup tool is Acronis True Image in a USB stick
  10. Do you get shutdown working properly? I found sleep is working fine. Most works very well but not shutdown. I install the latest EDP package and use the Mountain Lion

    try adding npci=0x2000 add the chamelion kernel line

  13. Yes, unfortunately, GMA950 does not work at 64 bit with QE/CI

    You need to change the wireless card to support model such as broadcom or atheros
  15. I have tried various options in EDP 3.0 but still can enable the touchpad. Would like to know who can make both work in Lion 64 bit mode
  16. You can use Chamelion Wizard to install theme, etc. It should work to re- enable guy
  17. I have only touchpad working but not the trackpoint in Lion. However, I am able to have both working in Snow Leopard Is it possible for someone to share their working drivers for both here?
  18. I guess the best will be E6200/E6230 if one needs a compact and handy laptop.
  19. Is your AR9380 full height or half height?
  20. The free version of SuperDuper can also work. I have most experience with SuperDuper
  21. Let me try again later for a clean install. At present only not working is trackpoint.
  22. What I mean is that my trackpoint is not working but touchpad is working well.
  23. I follow your instruction and upgrade to 10.7.4 successfully. BTW, which version of EDP to be used? I try on 3.0 and it is not ok. Kernel panic. For trackpoint, it is not working.
  24. I wish to ask if one can have both trackpad and trackpoint enabled in Lion 7.3. I am unable to have both but they work well in snow leopard. Besides, can one show a how to install 10.7.4 on D430?
  25. My work with Windows 7 is limited. Recently I tried the BCDedit method but is of no good. On the other hand, I use chameolion instead. It works very well. Champlist helps me to make the default boot partition. In my case, It uses to boot up Windows 7. However, I have not yet figured out how to allow booting OSX partition from bootloader of windows 7. BCDedit should be ok but I have not yet had a good experience with it. The reason for using MBR partition is to allow me to have every flexibility to backup, clone, and restore partitions using windows tools. As all know, there are much more tools to handle this e.g. Acronis is great as it can be booted from a USB stick
