    Hi, in first i have to say, that i am newbie. I want to install OSX Snow Leopard on Latitude D620 CPU: CoreDuo T2300E 1,66GHz, 1GB RAM, GPU is Intel GMA 945, Screen resolution 1280x800, HDD 60GB. I tried to follow install instructions in documentation and forum tips I have a retail Mac OS X Install DVD.dmg Because i don't have acces to MAC i also downloaded MAC OSX 10.6.2 for VMware In VMware i installed myHack_v3.1.2 (thanks Hervé) and created install USB drive - There i had problem myHack didn't ask me to choose instalation dmg (detected automaticly?) and at the end i was unable to choose MBR patch and my own Extra folder - myHack just didn't ask. Screen from myHack http://postimg.org/image/tm40qqgkd/ So i opened the created USB drive and replaced manualy folder Extra with downloaded from OSXLatitude.com for D620 (Dont know if it was right step) I have modified BIOS settings via article i found on this forum When i start booting i get this error http://postimg.org/image/dzqx2h2ad/ I would be glad if anyone help me and sorry for my english (i am not native speaker ), thanks Mathew
  2. This guide applies to Core2Duo D620 nVidia models. This guide was made with purchased copy of ML 10.8.0. It was not tested with purchased copies of ML 10.8.1, 10.8.2 or 10.8.3. Contributions/confirmations/issues are welcome on that matter. The bootpack was made out of the D630 nVidia ML bootpack where the DSDT table was replaced by the table from the D620 nVidia Lion bootpack, appropriate kexts removed and/or added and plists replaced. Extra D620n ML.zip This guide assumes you're using a blank HDD, partitioned and formated GUID. No tests done on MBR partitioned HDD, so don't ask about it, try it for yourself and report back if appropriate. Read the MacRumors guide thoroughly and follow it to the letter as far as creating the installer is concerned. Basically, if you don't have a legit copy of ML with the "Install Mountain Lion.app" application, forget it. The tool requires you to copy it to your "Applications" folder. It won't work if all you have is the InstallESD.dmg image. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1325709 Do not ask questions about MLPostFactor here. Go to the authors at MacRumors. It's not our hack, we did not make it, we don't support it. Phase 1: initial ML installation in mainstream 64bit kernel mode with unsupported graphics make the usual myHack USB installer (ML 10.8.0), using the attached bootpack. boot myHack installer and install ML 10.8.0, pointing to the /Extra folder of the installer media when prompted for the boot pack (do not choose generic). reboot into ML with "-x" flag (or ML won't boot) and complete 1st boot setup. you're now in ML 10.8.0 with default graphics at 1024x768 and without graphics acceleration. your wireless may not be supported at that stage, so use Ethernet port or install appropriate Wifi kext before proceeding any further, especially as you need to reboot after installing wifi kext. If you have not already done so, remove your myHack USB installer and put it aside. install combo update 10.8.3. at that stage, ML 10.8.3 is unbootable, no matter what, so don't reboot yet! if you have used myHack 3.2 to install ML, you may encounter KP on EFIRunTime/EFINVRAM at reboot. Boot ML off your USB installer, download & run Chameleon Wizard and install Chameleon v2248 or later on your ML partition. If you have used myHack 3.1.2, you should be Ok. Phase 2: MLPostFactor download MLPostFactor off the Net (EDIT 28 Mar 2015: sorry, original links posted in 2013 are dead now) create a new small partition on your HDD (8 to 16GB) or insert and erase your myHack USB installer (or any other available external media). following MLPF instructions to the letter, run MLPostFactor and create an ML installer on the freshly created spare HDD partition or freshly erased USB key. Select the "ML 10.8.0-10.8.2" case and run the app. If you've purchased and downloaded ML 10.8.3, select that version instead. upon completion, create a folder called "Extra" at the root of that installer media and copy DSDT table + SMBIOS & Cham boot plist files there. if you have a Bluetooth module, turn off your wireless services with the side switch (or laptop will look for a BT keyboard at next step and you'd need to hook up a USB keyboard). reboot off your initial ML disk/partition, interrupt the boot process at the Chameleon delay bar and select this newly created ML installer partition/disk with options & flag: DSDT=/Extra/ arch=i386 -f once installer is loaded, do not actually proceed with any installation (it would not be bootable). Go to "Utilities" in the menu bar and select MLPostFactor. when MLPostFactor app kicks in, click "Continue" until you're offered to select a destination volume. in the list available under the HDD icon, select your previously-made ML 10.8.3 installation, check the "10.8.3" case and click "Install MLPostFactor". upon completion, click "Quit MLPostFactor", quit installation program and reboot in ML 10.8.3 with flag and boot option: "-f arch=i386". If you switched off wireless services, turn the switch back on before the reboot. You will now have full QE/CI ! download and install EDP. launch EDP 5 and do a system build for the D620 nVidia model. open up Chameleon wizard and go to the boot plist tab. Check "32-bit (i386)" case to ensure your system boots in 32bit kernel mode. open up Terminal and type "sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel -a i386" to rebuild 32bit mode cache; this will remove the need to boot with "-f" flag. That's it, enjoy ML on your previously unsupported D620 nVidia. Remember that this hack is quite aggressive in the way it reverts to DP1 files and older graphics drivers (GMA950 kexts, OpenGL libraries), so you may find that things do not work. Again, don't ask for support here, go to the authors at MacRumors.

    OS X Can't be installed on this computer

    Hey folks, I am currently trying to install OS X Lion 10.7 on a Dell Latitude D620. I have followed the instructions under the EDP documentation to a T using the myhack method. All goes well with myhack, I have created a proper bootable USB and everything goes smoothly HOWEVER Once OS X Installer boots up and I click "continue" on the language selection screen, All I get is an Error message: Mac OS X 10.7 Cannot be installed on this computer Restore from backup / Restart I have formatted the hard drive to Mac OS journaled, Tried both MBR and GUID options I have tried running the installer in verbose and safe mode. I am out of ideas....anyone?

    Dell D620 SmartCard Reader

    Hello All, I just recently started playing with OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard on my Dell Latitude D620 and have configured everything fairly easily following the instructions (except if you are creating a USB install stick use myHack 3.1.2 instead, as 3.3.1 has a bug with creating 10.6). I ran EDP after installation to fix some of the battery/sound issues and used software update to get to 10.6.8, everything is working pretty good. The only thing that isn't working is the Smartcard Reader, I've looked over the forum and haven't found anything about how to get it working. The Smartcard reader appears to be an internal O2Micro USB smartcard reader. I've looked to see if any OSX drivers were ever written for O2Micro readers but I haven't found any yet. So does anyone have any ideas on how to get the smartcard reader to work?
  7. Hi there. I'm trying to install on the Intel model (not Nvidia), Mountain Lion from myHack 3.31 and I boot with -v, and the installer freezes (by freezes I mean I can't press a key to display those weird characters) saying: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - WARNING - LPC device initialization failed: C-state power management not initialized. I can't see an option to enable something like that in my BIOS, so I'm absolutely clueless at what to do. Would anybody be able to help me out please? Many thanks in advance, Nick

    D620 updating to 10.8.5 ?

    Having a working Mountain Lion 10.8.4 on my d620, i wonder if i can straight update to 10.8.5. Obviously I've used MLPostFactor, any advice ?
  9. I created my 10.7.0 installation disk from my MacBook, using myHack 3.2 BETA 8 and bootpack for Dell Latitude D620, Intel GMA950 graphics (1440x900). Plain, simple. BIOS settings as recommended. First boot on D620 gave me kernel panic. Debug message mentioning AppleEFIRuntime and AppleNVRAM (resides in AppleEFIRuntime). Deleted AppleEFIRuntime.kext from /System/Library/Extensions on install disk, problem resolved. Posting this in case someone else is banging their heads on the wall. Thanks for the great work. Bjorn
  10. Hi I have fully working Snow Leopard 10.6.8 on my Dell Latitude D620, in About this mac and System profiler the processor is detected as a 1.66 GHz Core 2 Duo, But i have a Core Duo. This is not important, but i want to know why it happen and if is possible, fix it. I've configured my build using EDP. I also tried extracting my own dsdt and don't work. I reiterate, isn't important, but if anyone have an answer i will be happy. Sorry for my bad english.

    Dell D620 Lion help

    Ok, so I have a Dell Latitude D620 with the nvidia graphics card and I got a copy of Mac Lion from app store Then downloaded the myHack tool. Installed the Lion to the 16 GB flash drive and installed the extras using the myHacks tool. Then I made sure my Bios is all good by looking at the other forum and everything checks out. Booted to USB and it loads the loader fine. When I press enter to continue the boot. it does its loading stuff but when all done it brings me to a black screen and my USB light went off. I been on this for hours.. Any help please would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Should I repair disk permissions?

    My system has been getting finicky; freezes during startup (fsck) and shutdown sometimes... nothing to do but hard shutdown and try again, which has always worked. (So far.) But after running disk utilitiy, the verify permissions came back with a ton of errors. Should I repair them all or will this mess up my install? Just being prudent, and I'm new at this so be kind. Thanks for your input, too.
  13. After trials and tribulations reported here: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2149-inspiron-e1705-gma-950-goes-black-before-os-install-screen/ my Inspiron e1705 seems to be running grand on 10.6.8 as a Latitude D620 - except that my wired ethernet doesn't work. Any suggestions? Installing the AppleBCM440XEthernet.kext file from a prior iFail install (using Kext Utility) allows ethernet to at least show up in System Preferences > Network, but it won't work either manually or by DHCP. At the moment I'm successfully using an Edimax EW-7811Un wifi dongle, but I'd like to get wired ethernet working right. OT, but I was so pleased that the MyHack+EDP install let SLEEP work, that I've even ordered a Dell 1505 wifi card to replace the wifi dongle for this beast. Many thanks! Update: after a two-week wait for the 1505 card to arrive from Hong Kong, I've given up on my quest to make wired ethernet work, because I got nowhere with it and the 1505 card works perfectly as airport.
