  2. Hello, I'm trying to install catalina to my Laptop ( Dell e7440 ). I had mojave working in this previously, and from there I downloaded catalina very long ago. Today, i saw this guide : and decided to install catalina. I Followed the new install method because i wanted a fresh install. and i also used this bootpack : First I updated some the kexts available in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Others which i could find from the links provided from that link above. Then i rebooted to install and successfully got to the catalina installation page. ( One thing to note here.... when i boot the first clover that is loaded is Clover Version 2.4k rev 4871 , and then i had to choose 'Boot UEFI optical from Install MacOS catalina' to go to the latest version 5118) I erased my install drive completely and started the installation, the installation went fine and rebooted, now in Clover ( 2.4k rev 4871) i selected boot MacOS Install from Catalina ( i named the drive catalina as said in the guide ) and it got stuck at the very beginning. I restarted the laptop and selected the same macos install from Catalina with verbose option and it gave me this ( the image attached ) FYI: processor : core i5 bios : A08

  6. which version of Mac OS X should i try on my laptop? link to installation guide ?
  7. Hello all, Trying to install 10.10 on a Dell 6220. It's on the compatibility list, and I have created a clover USB install. The installer successfully boots on other systems, but on the Dell I get a 'Selected Boot Device Failed." The BIOS is the latest A13. In the BIOS I've reset everything to default and set AHCI as recommended. I'm using the Legacy instead of UEFI (also recommended). Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Thanks!
  8. Hi, Wondering if anyone has a Dell Latitude D420 bootpack for Snow Leopard 10.6.3 around, I'm struggling to find one. Many thanks.
  9. Hello, I've created a Yosemite installation USB using Uni-Beast (f*ck sensored words). I'm booting the installation using the following flags: USBBusFix=Yes GraphicsEnabler=No -v -f It boots, but before the GUI should start, I'm getting a black screen. The USB stops loading screen, I've been waiting for about 10 minutes. Unfortunately I can't show you any errors because the black screen is just "showing" too fast. Could anyone help me with this? Thank you!

  11. Hi Guys As many users have successfully installed mavericks on D630 I'm sure I must be doing something wrong. I have D630 with Nvidia graphics running Lion without any issues.

  12. Hi, I've tried to install Mavericks on my system, but unfortunately I don't even make it to the installation screen. Bios is set up properly and I've got an intel processor, nvidia graphics and an Asus mainboard. When booting verbose it gets stuck with the following error: USBMSC Identifier (non unique): 058F63646476 0x58f 0x6364 0x100, 2 Still waiting for root device What could that be? Does anybody know a solution? Thanks in advance! Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3,4 Ghz 8 GBs of RAM nVidia GeForce GTX 650 Asus B75M-A
  13. I successfully created a bootable USB with MyHack v3.3.1 and the extras for my e6500. The Dell correctly boots into the OSX setup for Mavericks, but does not see the internal HDD. Disk Utility runs, but also does not see the HDD. I have tried reformatting the HDD from a working Mac, both as exFAT with MBR and Mac Journaled with GUID. Makes no difference. What am I missing?
  14. Hi everyone, System: Lenovo T430/2349 BG6, IvyBridge, Chipset QM77, HD4000, 1366x768 I'm really struggling getting to the installation screen using MyHack / Mavericks / Bootpack for T430. I have a straightforward T430 with no discrete graphics, just HD4000 and can't seem to get to an installation screen. I have loaded default setup in BIOS and then made the following changes: Made sure VDt is off Sata is AHCI USB set to legacy boot mode set to legacy No changes to Power management Secure Boot Disabled All other security features disabled. OK, so I made a boot key with my hack and then ran installation again to add the Extra folder downloaded in bootpack for T430. I would really appreciate some help to get me further. Are there any issues with SSD I wonder? From reading around, it is usually the graphics that is failing if it re-boots immediately you get to Darwin text on screen log. With great thanks to anyone that can help! Paul (surfmk).
  15. Trying to load My Hack the normal way, The Apple spinning logo page goes into a screen scramble upon installation (stripes on the screen). Attempting the x201 patch, where the standard installation fails (mainly type 3680 which is not mine), the installation freezes at the Apple spinning logo page upon installation. Any thoughts? Thanks,
  16. -----EDIT----- Using generic /Extra folder on MyHack, here's what works and doesn't. Will upload entire package once everything's fixed. Updated output of lspci -nn (trimmed this time). Notice it recogizes the ATI card for what it actually is actually, it recognizes everything, but still no sound Works: Just about everything not listed below, that I can think of. Give me ideas of what to test. Ethernet (using hnak's AppleIntelE100e v2.4.14 kext) Light sleep App Store/iMessage/iTunes login (with instructions from here) Does Not Work: Integrated Sound HDMI sound Deep Sleep Untested: ? Send me things to test? -----END EDIT----- Ok, so low and behold, I got the help of a few people on this site and WOW I finally got Mavericks on my Latitude E5420. So, I'm hoping the fine people of OSXL can help me with another computer. My Dell Optiplex 960. I installed it via iFail method, but there are several things that don't work (sound, especially through HDMI on my AMD Radeon HD 6670, and Apple Store login, to be specific). Specs (via lspci): Additionally, any advice on building a boot pack by myself would be greatly appreciated. I don't really know how to even begin wading through all the /E files that it requires....
  17. Ok, so thanks to this post I was actually able to get OS X to boot on the 5420. Thank Bob for that. I got the /Extra folder and the corrected DSDT.aml for the 1366 x 768 resolution. Then, I had an issue with the Installer wanting me to connect a bluetooth keyboard (prior to selecting the language), even though the built-in keyboard works (on Chameleon, anyway). Well, I disabled bluetooth in the BIOS, and it stopped doing that. However, after selecting the language, installer crashes and gives an error log. I managed to save it. It is attached. At this point, I'm lost. I dont know how to read Mac logs. I've become accustomed to Linux (minorly) but I'm primarily used Windows my whole life. I DO have OS X 10.9 on a Dell Optiplex 960, and it works good (installed using directions from http://tonycrapx86.org using his unifail installation method. Guess what, that doesn't work on these KP's out the wazoo). I've used both AHCI and ATA hard drive modes (neither had an effect on the outcome, either way). I dont know if there's other BIOS settings I need to alter. I'm hoping to overcome obstacles here with this post Any help is appreciated. Installer Log 30-Jan-2014.txt -----EDIT----- Ok, so OS X 10.9 is a go. Still haven't run EDP because there is not an EDP profile for the 5420. I have created a thread in the EDP subforum. Works: Built In Sound Sound hardware keys (Vol+, Vol-, Mute) Bluetooth Built in laptop monitor Built in keyboard (Fix Command/Apple key switch: System Preferences ==> Keyboard ==> Modifier Keys ==> change Command Key to Option Key, and Option key to Command Key. Thanks to npjohnson) Built in Mouse (as a mouse, not as a trackpad, no gestures) Function + Up/Down Arrow to adjust brightness Sleep/Suspend Middle mouse mini-joystick thingy that nobody ever uses Hardware Bluetooth/WiFi switch Internal Mic IEEE 1394 (Untested by me, but supported OOB, reported by npjohnson post 30) Does Not Work: Built In Ethernet (even with BCM57XX Kext) Built In Intel WiFi (obviously. Ordered Dell WiFi card and it worked without any further installation/configuration) HDMI Video Out HDMI Audio VGA Out Untested: SD Card slot Express Card (Reports of it working OOB on E6420, untested on E5420. I dont have any EC hardware ) ON A SIDE NOTE: 2 things I'd like to see fixed, but are in no way hindering operation: On integrated keyboard, ALT key is acting as Super (Apple Logo) key. Windows key (Super) is assumedly acting as ALT key, don't know the function of ALT on Macs, don't know how to test. Known fix? Integrated mouse trackpad does not seem to support gestures (my primary usage is for scrolling). Is there a known fix for this?
  18. When I go to install using OSinstall.mpkg it says "The Installer could not install the software because there was no software found to install." Help me please. Dell D830 Nvidia Graphics 4 gigs ram
  19. Greetings!!! I am following the step-by-step process to run OSX on my Latitude D530. I created the boot flash disk, with the image inside. Powered the computer with the usb, the installer is read, I get to select the language, then installation begins and it locks up. The farthest that I have gotten is 18 minutes remaining. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated. My model is the Core2 Dou, with 4 gb of memory, the harddrive was freshly partitioned (journaled)....What can I try? Thank you in advance MrM
