    Hackintosh on dell latitude d420 hanging

    Ahhh i see.. Do you suppose version 4392 will do the trick? Im still having a hard time getting the usb installer to work.. I must've used 4 different dmg files.. I can't seem to find my retail 10.6.3 disc so now im facing the trial and errors of installing on this old but trusty d420. I used to have a nice D420 a few yrs ago and Herve helped me patch it to get everything working.. I donated that laptop to a family member of mine in the west indies and they messed it up. I wish i made a copy of that partition. -------—-—-------------'>>>>>>>>>>>Update Finally I did it, I was doing the installer wrong. Managed to install 10.6 and successfully updated to 10.6.8. The only thing that doesn't seem to be working now is sleep/wake. I already removed sleepimage and set hibernate mode to 0.

    Hackintosh on dell latitude d420 hanging

    Usually I get too anxious and end up finding my answers afterwards. I've managed to install the msata but now in the process of creating the USB installer. Would I be able to use clover on this machine instead of chameleon?

    Silly me, I've erased that snow leopard usb stick and now i need it to use to install on my d420.. I don't even have the dmg file to create another one... What do i do?

    Wow, it's been a while since i've been active on here. I've acquired another d420 and want to know if it's possible to use an msata on that machine. I've already got the adapter from the zip connector.
  6. Crazy thing is i thought i was the only one facing that issue on my E7440 running Mojave. I had Sierra running on this machine prior to doing a fresh install due to having to switch to another SSD.. I even tried older battery kext and the problem still persists..Hope you will be able to find the solution to this problem. Also if i might add, i love the gestures on the trackpad, however, it feels too sensitive when doing two finger scrolling.
  7. I'm on the same boat as you Dude786. I've got 2 Toshiba laptops with 1st gen intel hd graphics Arandale and I was able to get Yosemite to install just fine and same for sierra. But upon reboot from usb installer, select the mac partition and I keep facing the same blank white screen. I think I know what's causing the issue though, on the thread on IM there's a section for kext to patch you have to include in the config.plist for either Yosemite, El capitan. Didn't see one for Sierra though, but I assume you could put apply those kexts to patch and see where that gets you. I haven't tried it yet personally because I just realized I never applied the patches til late last night.

    [Successful] Sierra E6330 action reporting

    @donaldant any more info on the progress with your E6330? I've just acquired one which would be coming in the mail on Friday with a bad screen and also a screen replacement. Could possibly use and learn from your experience in order to get mine working as well.

    Optiplex 990 - Sierra Realtek ALC269 Audio Help

    What have you done so far which led you to no working sound? I have the 790 optiplex myself and it has the same codec as yours and i managed to get sound working by using AppleALC kext and editing the DSDT to have the correct layout. Although sound works, but only through the front headphone jack, the back speakers jack doesn't seem to output any sound through the speakers.

    AlC269 VC Problem with Audio In/Out

    I have the same issue with my audio codec on my optiplex 790. I have sound working after numerous research and a couple of dsdt edits to change the layout to either 3, 7, or 9. But sound only works if i plug the speakers in the front headphone jack. The speakers jack input in the rear doesn't seem to be working and sound only comes from the internal speakers inside the machine. Anyone has a fix to this?

    E7250: OS X post-install tuning issues

    Thanks Jake Lo, I came across the other 16 page topic on the E7250 last night to its entirety and saw dstrukt post on how you helped him out with his.. His model is the same as mine. I tried his DSDT along with his config.plist and render my machine unbootable. I keep getting the early reboot when i try to boot in verbose and can't see exactly what's causing it. I don't want to have to reinstall, so my plan is to remove the msata and connect it to a msata to 2.5 sata enclosure and connect it to my other hackintosh to access the EFI partition and remove his DSDT and config.plist. I hope that will help. I thought i had to do the DVMT mod but i don't in the end because my machine is showing this in windows: Not working are: Wifi, sound, screen brightness.
