  1. Target macOS release: Mojave 10.15.x This is a Clover-based installation using the well-known/well documented vanilla method detailed below. This time, I was not able to build, test and verify this installation because I no longer have the E7250 laptop computer; however, my experience on 3 x other Hackintoshes running Catalina gives me full confidence in the guide below. 1) 10.15 USB installer creation Using a USB key of 8GB minimum, create a Catalina USB installer through the following Terminal command: sudo <path>/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/<USB key> where: <path> = location of Catalina installation package (eg: /Applications if freshly downloaded) <USB key> = name of formatted USB volume (eg: USB_8GB) The process will take several minutes. Once completed: Setup your BIOS for UEFI mode install Clover bootloader on the USB installer with the following customised settings: Clover for UEFI booting only Install Clover in the ESP UEFI Drivers -> Recommended drivers ApfsDriverLoader / AptioMemoryFix / DataHubDxe / FSInject / HFSPlus / SMCHelper UEFI Drivers -> Human Interface Devices (optional only) PS2MouseDxe / UsbMouseDxe Themes (optional only) Install Clover PrefPane (optional only) you may use Clover version r5093 attached below: Clover_v2.5k_r5093.pkg.zip once Clover is installed, run Clover Configurator app attached below and mount the freshly created EFI partition of the USB installer: Clover Configurator.zip open this EFI partition and transfer the files & folders from the Latitude E7250 Catalina Clover pack below to the EFI/Clover folder of the EFI partition: E7250_Clover_Pack_Catalina.zip 2) 10.15 installation boot the Catalina USB installer at the Clover main menu, select the "Install macOS Catalina" partition (but don't press [ENTER]) press [SPACE], select -v verbose option in the menu, then choose to boot with the selected options proceed with installation, creating & formatting the target Catalina installation through Disk Utility as/if required on 1st reboot, boot off the USB installer and select the freshly created "macOS install from <target Catalina partition>" repeat this until this partition is no longer offered and only the target Catalina partition is left to boot Reboot the target Catalina partition via your USB installer 3) Post-installation tuning Once the target Catalina partition has booted, complete the 1st boot configuration tuning Once at the desktop, install Clover bootloader on the Catalina partition/disk with the customised settings listed above Once Clover is installed, launch Clover Configurator app and mount the freshly created EFI partition of the Catalina partition/disk Open this EFI partition and transfer the files & folders from the above Latitude E7250 Catalina Clover pack to the EFI/Clover folder of the EFI partition You may then reboot and verify that Catalina boots off your disk through Clover After that reboot, finalise post-installation tuning actions such as disabling hibernation, allowing all apps download from anywhere, changing all serial numbers, etc. Please note that: Catalina runs with nearly all the settings used for High Sierra and Mojave, the most notable differences being: need to run with a Catalina-compatible Clover version Clover config must contain new ACPI patch that renames ECDV device to EC need to run Mojave-compatible Lilu + WEG + AppleALC
  2. Moving to the correct support section. Please make the effort to post in the correct and relevant section in the future. The guide you linked to has not been updated for Catalina... This being said, you probably need to: update Clover to the latest version (eg: r5070 or r5093). At minimum, run a version like r503x/r504x/r505x (tested Ok with for Catalina beta). Install the update with same settings as for Mojave. add Clover ACPI patch renaming ECDV device to EC; this is absolutely mandatory since Catalina beta #5. You can look up the Clover config posted in my E6230 Catalina guide to that effect. update Lilu + WEG + AppleALC kexts to latest versions. You may also look at here for guidance. If you have an existing macOS installation, you may proceed to upgrade directly to Catalina with the downloaded package, provided you've first updated Clover, its config file and your add-on kexts as detailed above. If you proceed with a fresh/new installation, I'd recommend you reformat your target partition to HFS+ from the installer main screen before you proceed with actual installation (APFS conversion will be automatic).
  3. Make sur you follow the BCM4350 guide available in R&D->Wireless section. Once you do that and inject the correct properties, you should find things will work a lot better.
  4. That would have been the correct method, yes; but you must have done differently. Use your original (Mojave?) USB installer to boot up Catalina.
  5. All you had to do, was install r5070 with the exact same settings you had (those listed in my guide). You must have messed up the modules... Re-install accordingly.
  6. With Catalina 10.15, Apple went further into increasing the security of its OS and the system's/root partition is now locked upon system startup. One of the consequences is that, by default, /System/Library/Extensions folder (/S/L/E) is locked and can not be modified in any way. This can be a problem for such situations where a vanilla kext has to be replaced and can only be so in /S/L/E. For instance, this is the case for IO80211Family kext which requires replacement by an older version to retain support for dropped wireless cards. The trick is basically to mount Catalina's root partition in Read-Write (RW) mode instead of Read-Only (RO) mode. This can be accomplished through Terminal with the following command: sudo mount -uw / followed a restart of the Finder through Terminal command: sudo killAll Finder or simply by relaunching the Finder from the Apple menu:
  7. For Catalina 10.15: 1/ DW1510/Broadcom BCM4322-based cards require replacing the vanilla IO80211Family kext in /S/L/E by Mojave's (or High Sierra's) version. Of course, Catalina system partition must first be mounted in RW mode to that effect (see our FAQ section for details). No need to replace IO80211FamilyV2 kext at all. DW15120 802.11n 2.4/5GHz card: 2/ Atheros cards require replacing the vanilla IO80211Family kext in /S/L/E by High Sierra's version. Of course, Catalina system partition must first be mounted in RW mode to that effect (see our FAQ section for details). No need to replace IO80211FamilyV2 kext at all. Atheros AR5BXB92 (AR9280) 802.11n 2.4/5GHz: Atheros AR5B93 (AR9283) 802.11n 2.4GHz:
  8. I felt it safer to update Clover 1st because I was running on a much older version than r5093. But you may use or stay with your existing version, depending on what it is. For instance, I ran Catalina beta with r5035 and r5058 so those older versions than ran Ok for beta releases should be Ok too.
  9. If run currently run Mojave or a Catalina beta version, you may simply run the downloaded Catalina installation app and update via that direct route. Clover has fully supported this for years. It's not mandatory to proceed with a fresh/new installation. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/340581-macos-catalina-1015-is-out/?do=findComment&comment=2692666

  12. Those kexts are not required afaik. In IOReg, you'll see your wireless card as ARPT@0 under ARP0@1D,2... Again, XHC is the USB3 controller device under which all USB ports are registered. You'll find the Bluetooth module of the card there.

  14. No, there is no "boot flag"... As I said, identify your iGPU id then read the Bible on 1st gen Intel HD at InsanelyMac.
  15. Following the general release of Catalina, we're now closing this Catalina preview forum.
  16. You're totally mistaken... XHC@14 is the PCI root device for USB3 controller. The Bluetooth module of your card will register underneath since BT is always USB-based. I don't know what led you to believe XHC was your card. For the rest, please read the very detailed BCM4350 guide we posted in this very section and consult the general troubleshooting thread. I think there's been enough writings about this card without the need for yet a new thread on the matter.
  17. Let's not re-invent the wheel here, shall we? Please refer to our existing E6x30 guides and use them.
  18. Should work OOB or experiment with country code parameter as per detailed in the guide. I know of no specific issue with 5GHz networks for this card or of any specific mods on the matter. Just make sure both antennas wires are properly connected. Failing that, your card may just be defective...
  19. Quick Google search (don't be shy on that front...) on "Acer InviLink Nplify 802.11b/g/n" led me here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/579491/acer-aspire-7741g;-invilink-nplify-ieee-80211-bgn-drivers-needed/ If you confirm Atheros AR5B97 chip (168c:002e) on your side, you may lookup compatibility with OS X here.
  20. Pentium P6100 is Arrandale generation so its (1st gen) Intel HD iGPU may only be supported if it carries id 8086:0042 or 8086:0046. Then, support will depend on the video connector used for your laptop: eDP or LVDS. You'll have to consult the bible on the matter at InsanelyMac. If the Intel HD iGPU of this Arrandale Pentium is not supported, you'd have no support for graphics and you'd therefore have to forget about OS X on this platform. Also note that, this Pentium P6100 not being SSE4 capable, at best you'd be limited to El Capitan 10.11 if at all possible. All in all and this applies to your Ethernet and Wifi cards too, you're going to have to identify your hardware a little better than that site provides in terms of specs. You can either look at each main hardware component individually through Windows Device Manager and look at the hardware id information available in the driver's tabs. Failing that, use well-known tools such as CPU-Z or Aida64 to create a full report on your laptop's components. Alternatively, now that you run Yosemite (albeit in limping mode), you may: run IOregistryExplorer app, save its output, compress it and attach it here open up your SysProfiler (Apple menu->System Information), save its output, compress it and attach it here These should provide us with your full system's specs.
  21. No, it's either: SSDT-UIAC table + USBInjectAll kext or USBPorts kext on its own (without SSDT-UIAC table) NB: I don't know which guide you followed to install High Sierra on your E6330 but I doubt it's one we published here because you're missing quite a few kexts... I would have expected you to have most of those you'll see listed with green tags in the screenshots of my 1st reply. And your ACPI/patched folder contains irrelevant tables too. I would suggest you consult these guides: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/8883-dell-latitude-e6230-with-i5-3340mi7-3540m-hd4000-and-1366x768-lcd-mavericksyosemiteel-capitansierrahigh-sierramojave/ https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-precision-vostro-xps-clover-guide/?tab=comments#comment-74275 Post a zipped copy of your Clover EFI folder, I'll try and fix it for you.
  22. As explained above: Remove all instances of USBPorts Reinstate USBInjectAll (and rebuild your cache if you're caching it but I suspect you're injecting it instead) Reboot Run Hackintool app and, in the USB tab, regenerate SSDT-UIAC table + USBPorts kext Retain SSDT-UIAC table with USBInjectAll kext or use (i.e. inject or cache) only USBPorts kext TrackPad PrefPane should then be back.
  23. Which High Sierra build are you running? And what about kexts you could be injecting from Clover? I assume you're doing that, aren't you? If so, no need to cache the kext from /L/E. This being said, I was just offered to install High Sierra Security Update 2019-005 on the E6220, which I did (build 17G8037)... and TrackPad PrefPane subsequently disappeared (familiar message "no TrackPad detected" reported in PrefPane)! I've identified that the problem was due to USBPorts kext. After reinstating USBInjectAll and re-generating SSDT-UIAC table + USBPorts kext, the TrackPad PrefPane is back with SSDT-UIAC + USBInjectAll or USBPorts only.
  24. Well there you are: you're duplicating kexts and installing kexts in /S/L/E AND /L/E; best recipe for troubles! Never install add-on kexts to /S/L/E unless absolutely necessary (on very rare occasions), only in /L/E. It's often repeated.
  25. Check that you've not installed any other PS2 kext anywhere that would interfere with DrHurt's VoodooPS2Controller R6 (which is the correct kext to use on all E6x30). The kext worked perfectly on my E6220/E6230/E6440 under High Sierra and continues to do so on my E6230 under Mojave and Catalina. And I have the TouchPad PrefPane present too. E6220 under High Sierra 10.13.6: E6230 under Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina GM (no longer runs HiSie): Various gestures work properly, can't say they all do, especially as I have 2 left hands and big heavy fingers, but many do (show desktop, LaunchPad, Swipe between pages, ...).
