I know - I know, Yup, why am I chasing this? Because I love Mountain Lion, that's why. ( I've said it before - and I'll say it again - If I wanted my HackBook to 'feel' like it was running some kind of a retarded cousin of iOS, I'd go out and buy an iPadâ€¦ ) Mountain Lion - The very lucky last 'of the Big-Cats', that can only just claim to resemble the last remnants Steve's influence and of OS X's TRUE origins - ( All before OS X 'went off the rails', with an unrelenting overbearing insistence of barging into your own personal existence - with its 'E.T. Phone-Home' iCloud domination - along with OS X's continuance of 'whittling down' all the really cool Open Source goodies that made it initially as grand as it once wasâ€¦ ) So that's why I wanna stay 'all Old Man grumpy'n'arrogant' - and whack this lil' DELL e7440 firmly on Mountain Lion. OK - So here's the spec's ; DELL Latitude e7440 - Intel i5 4310U Processor - 8GB RAM - 128GB SSD - Intel HD4400 Graphics - 1920x1080 Display What do I need from somebody? 1x 'Custom Bootpack' for this specific system, so I can quick-create a myHack v3.3.1 OS X v10.8 USB-Installer Any 'takers' - Milk Shakers? ( Is this even possible? ) Anxiously awaiting the necessary solution, from this awesome Community's already demonstrated brilliance - Thanks in advance, The Random01 (c;=

Hello OSX latitude, I write this on my old mac book which currently has parts being sent UPS to repair, missing keys, etc. Knowing my macbook from early 2009 A1181 is near its death bed I've been looking for a new system, I came across http://www.dfsdirectsales.com/ a dealnews.com special coupon and the m4400 for a great deal. My ideal setup for my new system is mac os ( duhh im here n this site), linux (centOS,SciLinux or RedHat similar), and some version of windows ( 7 / 8 or xp?) System Basic Spec's Processor T9600 8Gb Hard Drive (using an old 320 right now/ 1Gb Seagate after a few test runs) Quadro FX 1700M 15.4 Screen DW1390 wifi card (replaced the intel card) So far my test was great I decided to keep things well documented. (& since my girlfriend also bought the m4400 to replace her cracked screen acer, and will want to follow my footsteps) So first things first new wifi card after seeing this post https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2164-wifi-card-for-m4400/?hl=%2Bm4400+%2Bwifi about wifi card questions I purchased the DW1390 and instaled it in the WWAN slot on the notebook. Then I formatted the flash drive on the mac using disk utility (in reality I don't think you can format HFS+ on windows and IDK if linux allows it, Linux does so many file systems so I would guess it does) http://www.switchingtomac.com/tutorials/how-to-format-a-drive-or-partition-with-the-hfs-file-system/ helped guide me. Then I needed http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/ to get this cool app and follow the easy 5 steps outlines here https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1764-mountain-lion-on-e6400-in-5-steps so the current status is I have a 1gb hard drive partitioned in 3 ways and on the first partition I have os x 10.8 with very few issues. The installation claimed to fail and then when it rebooted it gave me the setup install and it seems to work great (IDK) when I do this again I vill do a verbose install next time and see what happened. this is the installation error I get . Install Failed: The installer could not start up the computer from the disk " but then it does boot from disk after a reboot. ? (i attached the installer log) Also my monitor only does 1280 x 800 until i do an software update and then get some other errors. Yes I ran a update to 10.8.5 with some errors but it still functioned, then I noticed the sleep / shutdown issue and screwed it all up trying to fix it so did a reinstall ( one of many i plan on doing ) current research ideas and issues i'm researching tri boots kext ??? osx 10.9 on m4400. (but a 5.2gb d/l i dont have space or time for right now) how to get correct video card (have Quadro FX 1700M shows Graphics Nvidia Quadro NVS 160M 512 MB) how to get correct processor showing (have T9600 2.8GHz shows 2.54), assume since i don't know about these kext and would have to edit them and not use them blindly. working pretty well on 10.8.5 Installer Log 28-Dec-2013.txt systeminfo.txt
I've got 10.8.4 almost fully working on an OptiPlex 960T (mini tower) except for wake from sleep. Does anyone have it working on an OptiPlex 760 or 960 and/or will help me by telling me your method and/or edit the OptiPlex 960 DSDT to get it working?
