    This is all rather poor, wouldn't you say? thread just entitled "E6320" no indication of hardware specs no reference of the version you're trying to install no indication of the bootloader you're using nor its version no copy of your bootloader config file or zipped EFI folder How do you expect anyone to assist in those conditions? It would seem you're using OpenCore so if you're trying to install Big Sur on the E6320, you can forget about it; you'll have no support for the HD3000 iGPU.
  2. Post a zipped copy of your EFI folder so that we check your settings.
  3. Do you use a valid payable subscription or one of those free offers with the purchase of an Apple device? If latter, could be the reason...
  4. Last update: 21 Jan 2021 Here are BIOS settings that are known to work on the Satellite Pro R50-B-116 (4th gen. Haswell CPU with Intel HD4400 graphics) under Big Sur. These settings were tested and verified with BIOS v1.70. Security . BIOS Password: * User: Not Registered or set * Supervisor: Not Registered or set . HDD/SSD Password: * Mode: Master+User or User Only * User: Not Registered or set * Master: Not Registered or set . Secure Boot: Disabled . TMP: Disabled . Hide TPM: Yes or No Power
  5. No difference between OpenCore and Clover in the respect of audio, keyboard/trackpad or graphics settings. If you follow the Dortania's guidance, you'll clearly see it. No further hint to provide until you post your config.
  6. You're using Lilu v1.5.0 and I read it could cause issues. Try with the previous version.
  7. It's been said before and you'll find a few old threads here and at InsanelyMac on the matter: mSATA SSD do not work in mini-PCIe slots. Whilst the slots physically look the same, they're not electrical identical. So, mSATA drives work in mSATA slots only. In the case of the E6x40, the slot supports 3 x usage: PCIe, mSATA and USB. But that's a fairly rare combination. With regards to Big Sur and OpenCore, the differences are minimal between version 0.6.3 and 0.6.5 as far as any config goes. If you need further assistance, just do the needful, i.e. post your stuff. There are existin
  8. For the benefits of other people, please detail the changes you made.
  9. Not a model discussed here. You know the drill, try it out and seek assistance thereafter if you have issues. Don't just rely on other people's work... Roll up your sleeves and follow Dortania's relevant desktop guide.
  10. Big Sur supports most mainstream Intel iGPUs from Ivy Bridge HD4000 to Ice Lake Iris Plus as long as they meet the minimum requirement of GT2 specs. You may refer to Dortania's GPU buying guide for further info on the matter. Haswell HD4600 iGPU has been supported since OS X ML 10.8.5/Mavericks and remains fully and natively supported in Big Sur. There should be no graphics issue on your E6540. Your setup may be incorrect and, with regards to glitches, the Haswell cursor memory patch (increase from 6MB to 9MB) aims to address this though I must say I never needed it on my E6440 whe
  11. Your config contains an error for the HD4x00 Cursor memory patch; you incorrectly entered: framebuffer-cursor 00009000 STRING when it should be framebuffer-cursormem 00009000 DATA Probably proves you don't need that patch.... I invite you to consult the WEG manual for guidance on the syntax of framebuffer patches. Then watch out with Big Sur and that MBP11,1 SMBIOS. Better to switch to MBA6,2. https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/14367-big-sur-1101-regression/?tab=comments#comment-104569
  12. Why don't you start by consulting and reading Dortania's documentation for guidance on the OpenCore configuration?
  13. Target macOS release: Big Sur 11.1 This is an OpenCore-based installation (on a SATA-III 6Gb/s SSD) using the standard vanilla method detailed below: Working: full graphics acceleration on Intel HD4400 graphics (with Lilu v1.5.0 + WEG v1.4.6 + usual Azul FB properties injection) multi-display on VGA (OOB) + HDMI (with injected connector patch) brightness control with Fn-Ins/Fn-PgDn (with Dortania's SSDT-PNLF);
  14. What panic message are you getting? What do you use to install Catalina? Clover? Opencore? What versions? How did you make your USB installer, using what procedure? Please post zipped copy of EFI folder.
  15. I found that, with OpenCore, Google Chrome will cause near systematic freeze on wake or a few seconds after wake if it is running when E6230 is put to sleep. As such, make sure it is not running when putting the laptop to sleep or not using the laptop for some time. I've not identified the root cause for this Opencore/Chrome-related behaviour yet. It certainly never happened when using Clover.
