  1. Can confirm it works.  I didn't have time to shop around unfortunately.  At the time, I had about 15 minutes to buy it before the Prime cut-off.  I wanted it today :P


    I used the E5520 Files from another post and it also fixed my trackpad.  However, whenever I shutdown or restart, I get a grey screen of death and have to manually hard reset.  Any idea how I can fix this?



  2. Hey,


    I have just managed to install the Niresh Mavericks on my Dell E5520 and I am unable to get the trackpad or the Wi-Fi to work.


    It originally had an intel wifi card, which I replaced with the wifi card from my E6420, which is a Broadcom BCM94313HMG2L.


    I am unable to find a solution to this card.  I tried the "temporary 43XX fix" but that didn't work.


    Also, I'm not sure what trackpad I have... How do I find out?




    EDIT:  I also have a RealTek RTL8188EE at my disposal if that helps.

  3. Hey,


    The problem I face is a black screen unless I use nv_disable=1


    I have tried using AppleGraphicsControl.kext but it still boots to a black screen.


    CPU: Intel Core i7-2620M @ 2.70GHz

    Ram: 8GB

    Bios: Version A21

    Video: NVIDIA N12P-NS2 (OSX says NVIDIA Quatro NVS 4200M 1024 MB)


    What can be done?


    Much appreciated guys, thank you!

  4. Okay, I managed to fix the KP, fixed the loop, managed to install OSX, attempted to boot up from HDD and I was prompted with "Can't find /System/Library/Kernel/kernel".  Whenever I do manage to bypass that error, I get another KP when booting from HDD (attached).




    Any ideas?


    Thanks so far!

  5. Inside my org.chameleon.Boot.plist is the following:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <key>Graphics Mode</key>
    <key>Instant Menu</key>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string>kext-dev-mode=1 dart=0</string>

    I didn't set anything in there (knowingly)

  6. Odd because I only type it once!


    Where can I read about a patched AICPUPM or NullCPUPM?  I've never come across these terms before.  As for the SSDT... can you safely skip that step all together?


    Thanks... You're a legend!

  7. Hi thanks for getting back to me Bronxteck


    Dart appears twice (I'm assuming) because it's probably enabled by default with Chameleon and I apply it as a bootflag.  I didn't notice it but I doubt having two null bootflags would affect anything (could be wrong!)


    I haven't touched any kexts, and I'm not sure what p and c states are?


    I did get an 'unsupported' error while generating the SSDT for my CPU, I specified -p because I'm doing it for a different machine.

  8. Hi,

    Thanks for getting back to me.  I have set the bios according to your guide, and Optimus is disabled.  I have set the DSDT from DSDT-E6420.aml and DSDT-NVM.aml and neither worked.


    Any ideas?



  9. Hey guys,


    before I start I just want to say you're all doing a great job; keep doing what you're doing!


    I'm new to the Hackintosh scene and I'm having difficulty getting Yosemite installed on my Dell E6420


    Laptop specs:


    CPU: Intel Core i7-2620M @ 2.70GHz

    Ram: 8GB

    Bios: Version A04

    Video: NVIDIA N12P-NS2


    I'm getting the following Kernel Panic after following this guide:





    After some research I believe it has something to do with VRAM or the NVIDIA chip, but that's as far as I can understand.


    I've tried various boot flags as suggested in other posts but with no joy. (I get to the same point with or without flags, by the way)


    Any suggestions?


    Many thanks.
