  1. Thanks for the tip. I will give it a go.
  2. Hi all, If anyone can help with this, that would be great. I am running OS 10.9.3 on a Dell E6530. It is becoming unstable, so I am attempting to wipe and reinstall. I have created an installer USB using this method: The version of OSX i have loaded onto the installer USB is 10.9.5. However, when I start up from the USB, it hangs. See the screenshot, attached. If anyone can help, that would be great. Thanks v much, John. System Model: Latitude E6530 System Type: x64-based PC Processor: Intel® Coreâ„¢ i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) Processor ID: 306a9 Intel HD graphics 4000 BIOS Version/Date: Dell Inc.

  3. Thanks for your help. I'll have a look for some details and get back if necessary. Many thanks.
  4. If you can help me with a kernel panic, I'd be very grateful. When my computer starts up, while I still have a grey screen with a black apple logo, I get a panic. There's a lot of data on screen. I think this might be a key extract: Kernel Extensions in backtrace: com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (217.92.1)(i've omitted the rest of this line). Booting with -x does not help. I dont' know if it was a good idea, but I decided to reinstall the OS. But it still is happening. If you have any suggestions, I'd be very grateful. Here are the specs. I have Mavericks on a Dell E6530. I installed using the process set out here (including the Extra folder suggested on this page): https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/5641-dell-latitude-e6430-e6230-intel-mavericks/&do=findComment&comment=29303 System Model: Latitude E6530 System Type: x64-based PC Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) Processor ID: 306a9 Intel HD graphics 4000 BIOS Version/Date: Dell Inc.

  5. Hi Herve, As always, thanks v much for the help. As I can't access the finder to uninstall any software, presumably, I need to start up in safe mode. I've tried pressing space at various stages of the start-up process, but I'm not having success getting in to safe mode. Do you have any tips? Thanks very much, John
  6. Hi guys. I have installed Mavericks on a Dell Latitude E6530. But the finder has stopped working. So the laptop mostly does not work. First, the menu bar disappeared as well as icons in the menu bars. It's the same problem that this person described here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1523697 Before I got a chance to fix this, the finder crashed. All windows and menu bars have gone. Restarting does nothing to help. This error message keeps showing: "Finder quit unexpectedly while using the IMFoundation plug-in." I'll attach the report. I started up from the USB stick and repaired disk permissions in disk utilities, but this did not do anything. If you have any advice, I'd be very grateful. Thanks very much John Mavericks installed on: System Model: Latitude E6530 System Type: x64-based PC Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) Processor ID: 306a9 Intel HD graphics 4000 BIOS Version/Date: Dell Inc.

  7. Thanks v much for your help. I should have mentioned in my question that I had tried the wifi switch in both positions, but still couldn't get the wifi to come on. However, I've tried again and now it works. I haven't tested it fully, but it seems that the switch needs to be in the on position on start-up. Once again, thanks very much John
  8. Hi Jake, Installed a Broadcom 1510 but I can't get it to work. If you have any tips, I'd be v. grateful. The first time I started up the computer after installation, there was a message saying that it had identified a new wifi card. But in newtwork preferences, I can't turn wifi on. There is a button for this, ("Turn Wi-Fi On"). When I click it, it goes blue while clicked, but it reverts to Turn Wi-Fi On. The status for Wi-fi is "Off". In the wi-fi status drop-down in the menu bar, it says "Wi-Fi: On", but this is grey. The details for Wifi in About this Mac are: Software Versions: CoreWLAN: 4.3.3 (433.48) CoreWLANKit: 3.3.2 (332.36) Menu Extra: 9.3.2 (932.35) System Information: 9.0 (900.8) IO80211 Family: 6.3 (630.35) Diagnostics: 3.0 (300.40) AirPort Utility: 6.3.2 (632.3) Interfaces: en1: Card Type: Third-Party Wireless Card MAC Address: 00:23:4e:a1:b4:8a Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 a/b/g/n Supported Channels: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 100, 104, 108, 112, 116, 120, 124, 128, 132, 136, 140, 149, 153, 157, 161, 165 Wake On Wireless: Supported AirDrop: Supported Status: Off If you have any tips, please do let me know. Many thanks John
  9. Hi Jake, Thanks once again. I now have audio and multitouch on the trackpad. I only have two finger multitouch and it doesn't do pinch zoom or rotate. I'm assuming that's the best it can get. If so, I'm v happy with that. Next for wifi. I assume I need a DW1510. I'd be grateful if you'd let me know if that's right. Is there a difference between Broadcom and Dell? Thanks v much John
  10. Thanks very much for the quick response. It's very much appreciated. I'll give it a go. I'm a newbie, so I'll take my time to make sure I'm doing it right and maybe pop back here with any question. Once again, thanks v much, John.
  11. Hi Jake, Thanks v much for your advice. I followed your guide (https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/5641-dell-latitude-e6430-e6230-intel-mavericks/&do=findComment&comment=29303). I used the Extra folder suggested on this page. I also used a different USB stick (the original one worked on one Dell laptop (the one I didn't want to hack), but didn't work on the E6530). Now I have OSX Mavericks on the E6530. Thank you. I don't yet have audio or multi touch. Do you reccommend that I do a post-instllation EDP? Or should I be doing patches from EMlyDinEsH like in your guide? Many thanks John
  12. Hi Jake, Thanks for your reply. On the USB port, I should have added that I am using the left port (as you face the laptop from the front) which is the USB 2 port. On the boot pack, I am currently using generic, but I will try the one you suggest. Thanks v much for this tip. But USB port and boot pack aside, I think I still have a general problem installing from USB. If anyone has any other thoughts, please do let me know. Many thanks John.
  13. Hi all, If anyone has any tips on this, I'd be very happy to hear them. I'm trying to install Mavericks on a Dell Latitude E6530 (i5-3320M). I have created a USB installer using myhack. When I start up the PC, after the Dell logo, I get a black screen with the white text message "No bootable devices". I have plugged the USB installer into a Dell Latitude E6320 and the installer loads, so it seems the USB drive and the installer are OK. If you have any guidance, please do let me know.
