  1. That worked, thanks but I had to do it from the USB since I had Fast enabled for Clover.
  2. Ok, I messed up. I accidentally closed the lid without disabling hibernation and now my laptop keeps restarting on its own. I have pressed spacebar, chose cancel hibernate wake, doesn't seem to work at all. Anything I can do other than reinstall?
  3. Hello everyone, After the surprisingly huge success with El Capitan, I decided to give Sierra a try. This thread is dedicated to get at least the installer running on the Dell E6500. Thoughts, opinions and discussions are also very welcome. (1) Using dosdude1's Sierra Patch, the installer USB creation was a breeze. Without the patch, the installer won't even try to boot (incompatible Mac). http://dosdude1.com/sierrapatch.html (2) Installer USB loads fine. (3) NVDAStartup causes kernel panic when trying to boot into the installer. nvda_drv=1 nv_disable=1 InjectNvidia=false
  4. Thanks for your help, Jake. I actually managed to fix the problem (God knows how) but it seems that the AppleUSBUHCIPCI.kext kernel panic was caused by the working USB port not having anything plugged in. I plugged in the mouse and it booted fine. Now I don't have to plug anything in at all. By the way, I am quite surprised that I could watch 1440p videos on YouTube just fine on El Capitan. Are there any differences if I go for the Nvidia Web Drivers? Better or worse?
  5. Got sound working with VoodooHDA. However, I just noticed that Clover cannot boot directly from the HDD (AppleUSBHCIPCI kernel panic) but boots fine through USB... Until I installed the kexts using Easy Kext Installer, where nothing works now. Great, I'll have to remove the kexts somehow. The OS was able to load through the USB installer even without any kexts installed. I wonder what's wrong now. But the most important issue is that I can't boot without the USB (see 1st paragraph). Does anyone have any pointers? Thanks a lot! At this point I'm just considering jumping to Sierra if
  6. I have managed to get it installed successfully, however I can't seem to get the audio working. Am I missing something?
  7. Hello, first of all I'm sorry if this kind of thread is not allowed but I'd like to keep a thread of discussion about El Capitan install on the Dell Latitude E6500. If it's not allowed, please lock/delete this thread. OK, let's get to the point. I have managed to boot the installer just fine, however I am not able to proceed with the installer as the installer only shows "Reinstall OS X" and not "Install OS X". As such, this has caused me to not be able to install the OS due to some "eligibility checking" mechanism. I never had this issue when installing Yosemite months ago. Has anyon
  8. TJmax and TJunction from Intel ARK matched. I think I'll boot up a Linux live CD and see if the temperatures are the same there.
  9. Well, after fixing the AGPM, fine tuning the FakeSMC, passing the fn=4 boot flag, cleaning the guts and reseating the heatsink, the sensor still shows the same number. I want to try reapplying the thermal paste, but since I don't have any, I guess I'm done for now. What's surprising is that it doesn't even feel that hot actually. So I came to a conclusion that the thermal sensor might be broken, since the heat felt pretty much like how I always felt it before. And if it actually overheats, I'm sure I wouldn't have been able to use the laptop for hours and hours, operating normally. I'll tr
  10. HWMonitor shows that frequency is between x6-x11, with speed varies from 800Mhz to 2.8Ghz. Even at 800Mhz, it's running very hot. GPU temperature seems normal, never in the red but still hot. I'm not sure why it's this hot when the laptop have always been 45+ degrees in idle on Windows/Linux and 60-70 under heavy load. I'll try the article you mentioned. I wanted to do the CPU tuning that you wrote before too, but I figured I don't need to since OP had kindly did it for our CPU, which is the same. EDIT: It seems that according to HWMonitor, my CPU only uses the minimum and the maximum
  11. Forgive me for asking, but how do I do that? I've tried using one command that I've forgotten and the CPU power management seems to be running. I've also tried VoodoPState kext and PStateChanger but it seems that my CPU is never at the minimum clock, but is at x6-x11 clock speed all the time (according to HWSensor and also Clover's CPU Tuning menu in the boot loader, ratio: x6-x11). Or is this normal (the CPU frequency)? Maybe it is normal, I remember running ThrottleStop and the FID was around 6-11 too, but the heat was never this high.
  12. I got Yosemite to run again on my E6500. Had an unused BCM4311 WWAN card and installed it inside mine. However, I have a serious issue with mine. The temperature seems to be so high when running Yosemite. This have never happened before with any Linux distro I've used and Windows too. Anyone experiencing the same? Fans and all are working just fine. Right now it seems to have cooled down and running at 73 degrees, but it was running at 80-90 degrees all the time on my first boot.
  13. Seems like a USB device is a more viable option but I used one for my sister's laptop. Anyway, my USB mouse suddenly stopped working after rebooting after installing Clover on the HDD and the kexts on my system.
  14. Hello, I tried to install using @howoarang's files on my E6500. Everything worked fine except Wi-Fi and my USB mouse didn't work after booting directly from Clover (Yes, I followed the Clover method since it is a lot easier). Any ideas why? The performance is amazing and I'd love to keep this on my old laptop for my mother to use. But broken wifi and mouse is a total setback to me. EDIT: Ah, I just realized that the wifi card is actually an Intel card. Is there still no solution other than swapping out the card, since it's totally not an option for me right now?
