  1. Hello everyone.. trying to get some help here. Usually when something brakes on the hackingtosh i am able to identify whats broken by the kernel panic error. This time around i Cant really see whats going on. I finally got around to updating my e6420 running Sierra to the 005 security update. But then the machine will just give me +++++++ and not even start the boot up process. After doing some digging i figured I needed to add AptioMemoryFix-64.efi to my efi clover folder. I did this by mounting my efi through terminal using my install USB. Now the bo

  3. Hi Hervé, I did a fresh install of High Sierra following Jake's guide and using the correct bootpack for Optimus configuration. Now the system boots with video only when I enable Optimus is the BIOS. When I restart or shutdown somehow Optimus is disabled in the BIOS and I have to enable it again in order to boot with video. Also, when in sleep mode, when I press the power button to wake the laptop it directly shuts down. Besides those issues everything else seems to work fine. I know that DSDT is unique for each system, that's why I have extracted my original tables (F4 in Clover). I am att
  4. Hello everyone, I would like to know if it is possible to install Mojave 10.14.6 on my Dell Latitude E6420, if there is any tutorial, in fact I found a tutorial on youtube from "Nick Silverstein Channel", but my Hack does not work the image when will start the setup screen after installation, it goes into sleep mode and when I turn on the computer again it gives a video artifact, so I can only boot the system using the flag FAKEID = 0x12345678, but the system starts without any video acceleration when i click (on this mac) it recognizes the hd3000 but it appears with only 4mb of video .. Ps:

  6. Hello, I am wondering if somebody could help me, I am new to the whole "Hackintosh" system having been a windows fan boy since the day I remember. I have worked In IT the last 9 years but had very limited interaction with OSX and Hackintosh (Managing to Hackintosh a Fuji laptop back in 2011 but not sure how I managed). I am running a Dell E6420. Intel I5 - 2520M 10GB ram 250GB Samsung SSD Nvidia 4200M Alps touchpad Intel Wifi ( I am aware I will need to change this) Intel Ethernet 82579 Unsure on Sound device (But it was working I believe with Voodoo) I have tried t
  7. I upgraded my E6420 hackintosh to High Sierra and I immediately noticed that I'm no longer able to boot from the secondary drive bay. I usually have my Windows drive attached to the primary SATA port and have one of the drive adapters that lets me install a second hard drive in leu of the optical drive. I had my macOS installed there so I can dual boot between the two. With High Sierra that no longer works. When I try to boot macOS from the secondary port it KP's and is garbled so I can't read what it says. When the drives are switched around macOS boots and recognizes another drive is the
  8. Hello, i'm kinda newbie to the hackintosh world, and today I was wondering if I can turn my dell latitude E6420 into hackintosh, so after viewing some instructional videos on how to install the hackintosh, after installing it and everything was alright I tried to use the Wifi and the integrated mouse "touch pad" so they didn't work and I actually don't know what is the reason for that, but I saw this forum seeking for help! Thanks for your time and sorry for my bad English..

  10. For what ever reason the brightness control in the System Preferences no longer works. I think it may be related to these two previous issues that I posted about in the past https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/9131-solved-e6420-monitor-sleep-turn-off-on-boot-fresh-install-of-el-capitan/ https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/9504-solved-black-screen-on-e6420-sierra-upgrade/ I am using the following DSDT because the one in Jake Lo's Sierra bootpack was not working despite me having updated to the same bios version that the bootpack is meant for, as discussed in the above thre
  11. I followed this guide step by step, this my clover setup and got stuck on the bios menu, the UEFI doesn't show a boot list to choose the USB drive. Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/OkdN9Ri.jpg The boot sequence is set to UEFI. But F12 won't show any option to boot via USB, so I added these options on the UEFI Boot sequence: \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI And \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi Both return a black screen. What am I doing wrong?
  12. hello. i decided to upgrade my system and I used Jake Lo's guide: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-precision-el-capitan-clover-guide/&do=findComment&comment=54632 allmost everything works fine when using USB for boot, but when I try to boot from disk, i loose USB-ports. So what is wrong? this is first time using Clover so it's quite confusing how to set up the machine, installer and where to install and copy things. f.e. any help is appreciated stupid questions will follow, maybe some other newbie as me have same questions... so here we go: 1
  13. So I have an E6420 no optimus, low-res (specs in signature L01), and everything is working great...until I plug in external monitor to the HDMI port....then all hell breaks loose. after plugging in hdmi -- native laptop monitor is underscanned. I change the display preferences to turn off mirroring / use hdmi monitor as extra display, restoring built-in lcd resolution. Upon reboot, built-in lcd is black and hdmi display is the only detected display. Shutdown, unplug hdmi cable, reboot and built-in lcd is black screen ... only way i can get a display is by plugging in hdmi cable to exter
  14. Hi, I recently tried to upgrade my El Captain installation to Sierra after noticing that Jake Lo had updated his guide to include an e6420 bootpack for Sierra. From what I can tell things are working so far except for one major thing. The screen does not work, it’s a black screen and I can only use the laptop via the hdmi out. I do not think this is a bios issue this time, because I saw that the bootpack was for bios version a23, so I updated my bios to a23 beforehand. My monitor’s resolution is 1366x768 and I am using the DSDT-LoRes from the new bootpack, but it would appear that the
  15. Hi everyone! Now I'm trying to arrange dell e6420 with sierra. i've installed the osx sierra (with -x -v flags in clover - other variant didn't start the installation). Now i've got some troubles - i've installed Clover to ssd partition 'n made the default boot volume. Clover starts, and when i use -v flag i've got the fault, system does'n boot - picture attached. Also i've attached the clover folder (just in case). Nevertheless i can boot from usb stick. In this case keyboard and integrate mouse aren't work, sound is missed, wifi is working (i've changed the wifi card to the right one) an
  16. Hello All, first of thanks to all here at OSXLATITUDE. Thanks to you im now on my third Hackintosh. They have given me lots of joy I used the guide posted here by Jake Lo and was able to get EL CAPITAN 10.11.6 running on my E6420. it runs very smooth and fast and i have triple boot option with Clover. (Linux, OSX, Windows)... I know windows... but i need it for work. issue I'm having is that I'm experiencing freezes on OSX but ONLY when minimizing a window. right now i have only seen it while minimizing Safari, so i have been using chrome instead, but every so often im now getting
  17. Hello I've decided to try my hand at installing OS X on my E6420 for the 2nd time. I just installed El Capitan 10.11.5 using Jake Lo's guide. Everything appears to be fully functional except for one thing, my laptop monitor will always turn off during boot. The system is running fine in the background but my monitor just turns off for whatever reason. Unplugging and repluging the charger is my current work around. This works when have access to a wall outlet, but otherwise I am stuck with the monitor off. I am using the e6420 bootpack with the DSDT-LowRes.aml as my display's resolution is 1
  18. Upgraded my E6420 to Sierra. Got my BCM94352 working after some difficulties. For some reason Clover's FakeID is not working and had to switch to the FakeID kexts. One of the problems I ran into while upgrading is that the VoodooPS2Controller.kext needed to be updated. Was getting a panic on it. That resulted in the touchpad ceasing to function. That and I need to figure out how to get the audio working again. Other than the trackpad and audio I have a functioning system. Fortunately Bluetooth never stopped working and I have a Magic Mouse until I can get the trackpad working again.
  19. Hi friends, I have yosimete on Dell E6420(i7-2720qm,nvs 4200m) and when I try to open the install it's fail. please see pics, Thanks!!
  20. I just ran into the problem after updating my Hackintosh E6420 from 10.11.3 to 10.11.4. I updated by the dmg file from Apple server today. I am using Clover legacy bootloader. First, there is no audio after updated. Second, I can't boot into El Capitan without using boot parameters -v -cpus=1. If I boot without these parameters, there will be kernel panic and restart automatically. Have anyone experienced the same problem? Let's discuss.
  21. I recently installed Capitan on my E6420 which has a NVS 4200m with 512MB using the E6420 bootpack and DSDT from this guide . Everything seems to be ok accept my NVS 4200M shows that its using only 256MB instead of 512MB. Can anyone help me with this?
  22. Hello! I have installed El Capitan in my E6420 following Jake Lo's "Dell Latitude / Inspiron El Capitan Clover Guide". (used E6220 bootpack). I still have to fine-tune installation but I have one doubt regarding Clover boot: Why I can only boot legacy? Even enabling UEFI in BIOS I can´t see UEFI boot entry after pressing F12.... My plans are to dual boot Windows 10, so partition must be GPT pure... Thx
