  1. That's the step 7 of the post installation guide right? I did that. But that make reference to L/E (/Library/Extensions), do I need to do the same and put the kexts in /System/Library/Extensions? Do you guys think it could be something about the Clover start. That's where I struggled a lot. And I don't know If I'm preventing something to start correctly. I don't know if this is useful but attach is the EFI partition of my hard drive. Again, thanks a lot. EFI-E6430.zip
  2. Hi, First let me thank everyone for all the guides, notes and contribution. Really thank you. Ok.. I have a Dell E6430 laptop. I changed the Wireless card for one compatible, and installed a 500GB SSD. I'm installing High Sierra. I followed the guide "Dell Latitude / Inspiron / Precision / XPS - Clover Guide" and all the installation process went perfect. I just go trouble to manage to start the mac OS without the Pendrive, but that's working now. Now my problem is the post installation. I followed the rest of the guide but for some reason it's not working. My issues are the following: USB Port not working. (This one is very weird, only the left usb port works. The right ones are not working) Sound is not working. Battery status not working. Webcam is not working. HDMI (not tested yet) VGA (not tested yet) So far my biggest concern is the USB and sound, . I used the E6430_A12.zip. Please find attached a copy of my EFI folder of the USB installer. The same content is in the EFI partition of the laptop. Any help will be truly appreciated. Thanks in advance CloverUSBContent.zip
  3. I tested installing 10.9, and the result was the same. So the error is not the OS, It's probably the ExpressCard driver. Has anyone tried another hardware connected through the ExpressCard? Please let me know. Regards Alejandro
  4. I installed Mavericks 10.9.1 in a E6430. Now, I have a problem. I have an Wifi ExpressCard (WEC600N) that worked with 10.9 in a E6420, but in the E6430 with 10.9.1 is not working. The system see the card, but It doesn't show any wireless network. Now, I don't know if the problem is with the ExpressCard port or the wireless card. Can someone help me with that? I don't have access to buy a Dell rebranded card right now so this is my only solution to have wifi Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi Jake Lo, as usual, thanks for your help. Something weird happens, I installed the kext using kextUtility and after reboot I lost the sound. I don't know if it was a user problem (me) or what, so I decided to run MyFix to try to repair and return to the previous status. That worked, I was able to recover the sound and also the jack headphone are working. So, basically, I don't know what I do wrong or what I do ok but is working Regards Alejandro
  6. Hello everybody. I just want to let you all know that I installed Maverick. As Jake Lo, It's the same as install ML but with one difference After the installation the system always need to start with -f, so I just used the Chameleon Wizard and told it to start with -f option all the time. Now everything is starting just fine. The only issue that I have is with the headphone. For some reason It's not working, I plug my headphone but the system doesn't know and everything keeps playing in the speakers. With ML that wasn't an issue. Jake Lo, do you have the same problem? Any ideas of how to fix this? Thanks in advance. Alejandro
  7. Ok, thank you so much for your help. I would probably going to update to mavericks next week after the release. And for everybody else, if you have any question please take a look at this post and also the E6420 Research Thread https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1109-e6420-research-thread/page-5 There is a lot of information and people ready to help. Also please find attach the last EXTRA folder that I used. It's the same that Jake Lo send me, but I changed the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement for NullCPUPowerManagement kext. And remember, this is for the E6420 with the Intel Graphic Card HD3000. And remember, upgrade your BIOS, this solve almost all of my problems. To upgrade your bios you dont need windows installed. Check this article: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/46707-ms-dos-bootable-flash-drive-create.html I tried freedos with UNETBootIN but It didn't work, so if you find a way to create an msdos usb boot on mac or linux, let me know. At the end I used my wife computer to create the usb. Sad, I know.. jejeje I think with all the work made by jake Lo and a lot of other people, OSXLatitude can add this model E6420 to the compatibility sheet. Regards Alejandro PS: See you in a week for the Maverick upgrade. ExtraE6420HD3000.zip
  8. Everything seem to be working as expected. One question. Did you made the touchpad works as a multitouch using https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2545-new-touchpad-driver-for-e6520-alps/ ? Another question. Did you use SpeedStep? If you do and the performance improves, can you tell me how you do it? I read the http://www.osxlatitude.com/tuning-performance-with-fakesmc-smbios-plist/ but I'm not to sure how to do it. And, does anybody knows how to do a dual boot if I want to install Elementary OS for example? UPDATE: It was easy, during the installation process when elementary ask me the partition table, instead of set /dev/sda to install grup, I put the partition where elementary is going to be installed /dev/sda3 (for example). Then Chamaleon recognized the linux installation and know I have the option to boot Mac OSX or Elementary OS. Please let me know. Thanks again. Regards
  9. Finally Good news. First I upgrade the firmware, this solve the problem to boot using the myHack Usb Drive. I didn't work at first time because I got a KP with AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, but I read one of your post Jake Lo and deleted the kext and put the NullCPUPowerManagement. With this I was able to run the installer. I tried to to fix my previous installation using myFix but as I expected, I didn't work. So I proceed to install a new fresh installation. The installation process works. I'm going to test what is working and what is not working and let you know. Thank you very much for help. And If you need some help testing for the Maverick please let me know. Regards
  10. I haven't update the BIOS, I'm going to do it first and then try myHack again. I will let you know. Regards
  11. Bad news... It still not working, I run the kextwizard, install the kext that you gave me and also I check the Repair Permission, Rebuild Cache, Rebuild mkext for Extra and System/Library/Extensions. I'm actually open to install again, but using Myhack. I tried but MyHack is not even booting. What could it be? Any idea. Thanks again Regards
  12. Hi Jake Lo, I used the unifail to build my OSX. I never got the my hack to work, which I think it's better. I'm going to try the kextwizard and let you know. Thank you so much for your time and help. Regards
  13. Yes, I have an iMac. I can get the disk from the laptop and attached through USB to the iMac. Let me know what do you want me to do.. Thanks again Regards
  14. I tried to boot, normally and using the myhack usb, with -s and both failed. I can even get the myHack usb pen boot. Any other idea? Again, thanks for you help and effort. Regards
  15. The problem is how? I cannot boot with myhack. Do you guys know another way? I'm going to try to boot with unifail, but I don't know if I can put the kext again, because the first time that I did it was with multifail. UPDATE: No luck with unifail... :S It doesnt start either. Regards
  16. When I boot with -v -f i get the error in the file BootWith-V-F.JGP. Without the -v -f options I get different kernel planic, IOPCIFamily, IOUSBFamily, AudioAUUC not found, etc. I upgraded from 10.8 to 10.8.5. Everytime I tried to boot with myhack y get EBIOS Read Error: Controller or device error, and when I use the -v -f option Kernel Panic, I attach the screenshot Myhack-V-F.jpg I don't know if It's important, but my Bios version is A08. If you need something else, let me know. Thank you so much for you time.
  17. Hi Jake Lo, I have a few question, I accidentally upgrade my Mac OSX and now is not working. I'm trying to boot with a myHack usb but is not working. It get me a kernel panic appleACPIPlatform. How do you manage to boot with myhack in this model? which version are you using? I'm trying with the 3.2 beta 8, and Mountain Lion 10.8, and using your extra folder. Please let me know how can I bring back my installation in order to not loose al my data. Regards Alejandro

  19. Hey guys... Some updates... Bronxteck the macam did not work :S It's a kind of weird what is happening, because the webcam works for skype, and also to take my pictore for the OSX profile. But for facetime or PhotoBooth doesn't works. But thank you so much for your help. For the wireless I bought a cheap usb card. NETIS, It's works, the only thing is that It's use his wireless setup network program, but at least now I have internet access Now I have another problem, I installed LinuxMint (for work purpose) and It has been impossible to made chameleon to recognize the linux partition. I have tried almost everything, creating boot partition, installed grub in / or /boot . Nothing seems to works. I missing something but I can't figure it out what is. Any help? And using Chameleon 2.1. Thanks in advance. Cya
  20. Hi, I made to install ML in a E6420 with intel video. Actually the ML recognize the card without problems. You can check my topic to see what I do. I know is not the same hardware but you never knows. I have some issues with other things but It`s up and running. https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1668-mountain-lion-dell-latitude-e6420-intel-hd3000/ Cya
  21. Ouch.. Well, I'm going to buy a PCI Card to fix this issue The other big issue is the trackpad. Is kind of annoy to depend from a usb mouse. Any ideas? Another thing is the webcam. It works with skype or even to take the picture for the profile user. But when I open Photo Booth the light turns on but the camera don't work. Same with facetime. I think that now I have a very good system, but what is left is very little So, if anyone want to experiments with me, welcome.
  22. Hi Syonagar Actually I made more progress installing Mountain Lion. The graphic card works out of the box. But I'm still having some problems with the wireless. I opened another topic because this is for LION. The URL is https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1668-mountain-lion-dell-latitude-e6420-intel-hd3000/ There you can find what I have done and the status now. It's up and running with some details Any help is really appreciate. Thanks in advance.
  23. Ok, I'm having big progress here First you are going to need a USB Keyboard, just in case. I use multifail 4.6.1, and install the options -System Utilities -> Repair Permissions -Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kexts & Enablers -> Audio -> Universal -> VoodooHDA -Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kexts & Enablers -> Network -> hnak’s AppleIntelE1000e Ethernet -Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kexts & Enablers -> Misellaneous -> FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement, PS/2 Keyboard/Mice and Trackpads -Customization -> Boot Options -> 64-bit Apple Boot Screen -Customization -> System Definitions -> Macbook Pro -> MacbookPro 8.1 -Customization -> Themes -> tonycrap86 Classic Now is booting without any usb. Things to do: Fix WIFI Fix sleep Fix Trackpad Fix WebCam Fix VGA Output Fix HDMI Output (Not tested) Fix Battery Indicator Fix Memory Card Reader UPDATE 1 To fix the battery indicator y use the Kextbeast from http://www.tonycrapx86.com/downloads.php?do=cat&id=3 And download the kext from: http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php?topic=1092.0 Put the kext in the desktop and run the application. Still no luck with the WIFI. I'm gona need a little help please. UPDATE 2: Ok, after some problems I reinstall everything but found some interesting things. First, don't use multifail. I saw that everytime that I boot from the unifail USB drive, the trackpad works perfect, until I install multifail. So what I do is: -Boot with the unifail USB and run the installation. -Open a terminal -Copy the Extra folder from the USB to the MAC OSX disk. -And to fix the boot0 error, do: -umount /dev/disk0s2 (be carefull, make sure that the osx installation disk is disk0s2, if not, put the correct device diskXsY) -dd if=/Volumen/unifail USB/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2 (same as before, check which is your device) Reboot and done. Working without USB and trackpad fully functional. NOTE: I don't think this affect but this installation was using a backup disk. But I don't think this update the kext. So that is why a said not use multifail. UPDATE 3: The webcam is working, I didn`t do anything. I left the facetime application open and eventually the webcam image popup. It`s look bad and jumpy, but when I call somebody the other person see me perfectly. Bad news, I added the read memory card issue. It's doesn't recognize the memory reader. Any ideas?
  24. Ok, I manage to repair the boot using the instructions in the following page http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/02/hackintosh-boot0-error.html I use chameleon instead of chimera (chameleon, stolen and rebranded). But now, I have a kernel panic. I boot with the flags mach_kernel -v -f and the problem seems to be com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement EDIT: I manage to extract the DSDT using ubuntu live cd 12.04. I attached to the post. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Best regards e6420dsdt.aml.zip
  25. Ok, now I'm trying to install chameleon with a myHack thumb drive. But It doesn't start. I also try to start the usb with the boot param mach_kernel -v -f and the only thing that I see is this: BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory Is there any other way to install chameleon? I will continue my research. I made it to install chameleon but I't doesn't works. I still getting the boot0 error. Also tried installing chimera (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) from multifail but is the same result boot0 Any idea Best regards Alejandro
