Private First Class (3/17)



  1. Bump for A18 BIOS, I've got my setup using it as well without issues, however I wasn't aware that Samsung LTN140KT07 was a requirement. I do have the 1400x900 display, but unsure of the specific Samsung panel.
  2. Seemed to have helped me... I also enabled this: Graphics -> check "Inject ATI" (even though I don't have ATI) and "Inject NVIDIA" (Even though disabled with DSDT) System Preferences -> check "Inject system ID" Right now I am running the A18 BIOS, with DSDT/SSDT edits to power off the NVIDIA GPU, and no graphics artifacts as referenced originally.
  3. Hey Jake, thanks for responding. I was actually able to get it to work with A18 BIOS! I just had to do this kext patch using CloverConfigurator under "Kernel and Kext Patches" section: Name: IOGraphicsFamily Find* [HEX]: 0100007517 Replace* [HEX]: 0100007417 Comment: Boot Graphics Glitch - 10.11 I apologize for starting a new thread, but I was getting frustrated... Just happened to stumble on a fix after posting.
  4. Can someone explain why we cannot upgrade the Dell E6430 to the latest A18 BIOS? What is preventing us? I have DSDT and SSDT edits in place and have able to get my E4630 to essentially 95% of a real mac, I still cannot restart without Optimus being disabled. Now at A18, from A12, I get horrible screen corruption. It is similar to when the system is booting up, but this is all the time. It seems to affect windows with inactive content - for instance this text box i'm writing this post in is clear, but everything around it is corrupted. Please see attached photo for example:
  5. There are hacks you have to do to get this to work, and not sure it is discussed here. I still have yet to get my bluetooth to work properly on this card. Search google, you should find answers there.
  6. Strange, i think i was at A16 then downgraded to A11 directly. I don't experience the issues above, but i'm wondering if I don't have other issues I don't know about. What is the reason behind jumping firmware versions in that order? Should firmware be a direct over-write/image copy? not patching?
  7. What is the "boot" file for? And where does it go?
  8. Nice, how is your power usage/battery with Optimus enabled? Ultimately I would like to get the NVS disabled. Granted I do have a Quad Core and I wouldn't expect battery life to be amazing, I would still like a compromise. Where did you obtain your VooDooPS2 ALPS variant? How about the Apple Graphics Control? Did you modify them yourself? I still have yet to update to 10.11.5.
  9. Yeah, I am running El Capitan. I couldn't get Yosemite to install, it would fail on extracting the essentials package. I actually didn't have the VoodooPS2Controller kext installed, should I try that? Where would i get the ApplePS2Controller kext from? Same for the NullCPUPowerManagement? I found some linked in different 10.11 guides, but I don't care for random kexts ...
  10. Both links utilize the same DSDT - matching md5 hashes. When I attempt to boot, I get a kernel panic. Is there something else I need to change? Maybe different boot arguments?
  11. Is Yosemite better than El Capitan in regards to Hackintosh capabilities? Is one easier to work with? Less quirks?
  12. Do you think you could assist with that? Or is there another use on this forum that has disabled the GPU via DSDT?
  13. Are people able to get sleep to work on e6430 laptops with NVS GPUs? I'm seeing mixed information out there, can't tell if they are refering to e6430 with GPUs or ones without. In order to get Sleep working, it does look like I will need some DSDT edits.
  14. Please see attached tar file. Below are the MD5 tasks of the DSDT/SSDTs, where SSDT-2 and SSDT-3X have the same hash. I did attempt to perform the some patching myself following RehabMan's Guide for powering off the NVS and getting sleep to work; however, I couldn't figure out the Power off portion and I thought I had gotten the sleep part applied but after initiating sleep and attempting to wake the laptop up, it crashed. On post I found that OPTIMUS was unchecked again and About This Mac showed the NVS...
