  1. Hi, I have been trying to install Mac OS on an XPS 8930, without any success. The computer runs fine for a few precious days, then stops booting altogether. I have laptops that work almost flawlessly, but I really would nee a desktop with plenty of HD space for my photos. Can anyone provide a working EFI folder, OpenCore, if possible? I have given up doing it on my own. Thank you. Specs CPU Intel i7-8700 at 3,20 GHz Graphics card AMD RX 590 32 MB DDR4 RAM at 2133 MHz
  2. The problem that I am currently experiencing is that the internal display is not functioning the way it should. The internal screen becomes partially fragmented after boot or black without injection kext made with Hackintool. Although the internal monitor is not functioning correctly, when I connect an external monitor (with FHD resolution) during/before boot It becomes fully functioning. If I connect it after boot then the screen will become less fragmented (will only fragment when there is a lot of change on the screen) and only fully functioning with mirror display option enabled. Here is a link to my repo with the current OpenCore setup. Here is the kernel log. DSDT dump DSDT.zip
  3. Hello !

  5. WHAT I HAVE DONE: I created the USB installer with the createinstallmedia command installed clover 5119 and tried with the latest version too used Clover Configurator and mounted EFI folder installed bootpack for Catalina booted up installation with boot args -x -f -v -igfxvesa Note: Catalina Installer is from official Apple Servers. WHAT'S GOING ON: After being greeted with the language selection screen, I selected English. Opened disk utility and formatted the NVMe SSD to MacOS journaled. Then, returned to the installation screen... and behold... I could not see the partition available to install macOS onto. So I just restarted the laptop and used clover boot loader to try to restart the installation process. The boot loader did not take me to the installation screen this time, but gave me an error. The error shows at the end of parsing so much code, that the screen goes off and tries to reboot. Literally such a small amount of time. I am unable to see the full error, but it is something along the lines off... "in memory panic"... Attached EFI folder. Catalina 10.15.6 EFI.zip

  7. Hello forum members. In a german hackintosh forum i found some code snippet to correct map the brightness keys for a Latitude E7440. # _OSI(WIN7) is needed for brightness keys into method label OSID code_regex _OSI\s+\(WIN7\) replaceall_matched begin LOr(_OSI(WIN7),_OSI("Darwin")) end; #syscl_fixBrightnesskey_VoodooPS2 into method label BRT6 replace_content begin If (LEqual (Arg0, One))\n {\n Notify (LCD, 0x86)\n Notify (^^LPCB.PS2K, 0x0406)\n }\n If (And (Arg0, 0x02))\n {\n Notify (LCD, 0x87)\n Notify (^^LPCB.PS2K, 0x0405)\n }\n end; How and where do i have to implement this? And, is this compatible with the VoodooPS2 kext modified by @Bronxteck
  8. Hello! I'm new on this forum and in hackintosh laptop world, and I'm happy to ask on this great forum. I need help from some super hackintosh user (i know that I'm in right place) my dilemma is below: I've choose a Dell Latitude 3490 14" with intel 8th gen (i5-8250u), I was search and check on Google for specs, and i think that this 3490 is very similar to the 7490. https://www.cnet.com/products/dell-latitude-7490-14-core-i5-8250u-4-gb-ram-128-gb-ssd/ https://www.cnet.com/products/dell-latitude-3490-14-core-i5-8250u-8-gb-ram-256-gb-ssd/ I've found a partial EFI from 7490 with config.plist, ACPI patches and appropriate kexts (the attachment) What do you think about this? Can I use standard bios settings and standard uefi driver in clover reccomanded on forum in 3000 series section guides? The hardware will work (I'm worry about trackpad)? Please help me
  9. Hello I registered here, because I want to make my E5540 into a Hackintosh with macOS Catalina. My hardware specs are: Intel Core i5-4210U Intel HD 4400 I tried with Clover but i get stuck at the ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ line. Please help me

  11. So I finally have Catalina installed on my Dell Latitude 7400 (i7,32gb,512gb SSD) and the touchpad will move the cursor and click, however, multi-finger gestures (scrolling, expose, ect.) do not work. Is there any specific kexts that I need installed in order to get this to work? Or does this trackpad only do simple mouse movement? I've seen some people get everything working, but they all use OpenCore, I use clover (following thread). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  13. Hello, I have a dell optiplex 3010 SFF with an i5 processor (upgraded) and an Nvidia GTX 1050 ti graphics card. I was able to install High Sierra with a working EFI, but I would like to know if anyone was able to make this configuration work on Catalina 10.15. My current EFI does not allow me to start on Catalina and if someone has an EFI working for Catalina I'm very interested. I can upload my EFI High Sierra if needed. Thank you in advance for your help and for all the resources in this forum.
  14. Hi all, I'm using an original Airport BCM943602CS card with a pci-e adapter. Wifi is working great OOTB but not BT. Since my motherboard only has a single USB3 header connecter that is used for the front USB connectors of the case, I decided to buy a third-party NEC Renesas based PCI-E USB controller, and to connect the BCM943602CS to it via USB (since USB connection is necessary for the BT part). This is the part that is not working correctly : the BT controller is not correctly detected by macOS -> no BT panel. The current state is the following: - In System Information, the bluetooth panel is empty - In System Information, the USB host controller of the Airport card is visible under the second USB 3.0 bus provided by the NEC Renesas card - In IORegistryExplorer, it is shown that this USB card is mounted under [email protected] - which seems logical since PXSX is used for a generic PCIe device. The Broadcom BT controller is show under [email protected] BUT, strangely enough, the USB ports of the cards are not named! Each port has a location (0x00500000, 0x00600000, ...) but no name. I looked at my DSDT and, indeed, there are no named port definitions under the PXSX device. As opposed, say, for the XHC device which has multiple named ports in the DSDT. - In Hackintool, both controllers are shown but only the ports of the main Intel controller are listed (HS01-14, USR1-2, SS01-10) - For testing purpose i'm using USBInjectAll and port-limit disabling hacks. So where are the ports of PXSX?! So, how is it possible that the BT controller is clearly visible on the secondary USB bus (even in System Information / USB panel) but not detected as such by macOS? Is it because it can only be connected on the primary USB controller/bus? The Airport card is indeed working and is not the problem: if I plug it directly on the motherboard USB3 header it shows up instantly in macOS and everything is working great. So, clearly, the problems is with the connection through a 3rd party USB controller card. I'm using the following driver for the NEC USB controller card: https://github.com/chris1111/USB-3.0-NEC. I tried switching it with GenericUSBXHCI.kext to see if this driver handle ports differently, but the card is not even recognized with this one. At this stage, the only ideas I have are: - try to add names to PXSX ports - in a patched DSDT I suppose, but I have no idea where to start. - try to rename PXSX to something else in order to please macOS (XHC0, XHC1 maybe?) Any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks for your help!
  15. e7240 with Catalina 10.15.4 installed using @Jake Lo's bootpack (thanks!). Consulted the inventory of supported wifi cards, and then waited for weeks for my AW-123H to arrive from China. Bluetooth is working (for Logitech mouse anyway) with brcmpatchram3 etc, but I can't get wifi working at all. All my searching leads to fixes for previous versions of OSX which don't seem to apply for Catalina. System report doesn't show the card at all. Hackintool doesn't show the card under peripherals, but it does show it under PCIe devices. I also have a Win10 boot for this laptop and both BT and WiFi work flawlessly. What am I missing? Thanks debug_24322.zip
  16. Hi everyone I have problem with catalina installation on my dell precision 3510. Some people told me I need ssdt?? Is anyone who can help me with this?
  17. 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
  18. Hi, I have just installed macOS Catalina on my Dell 5570 ... I've been facing some problems, one of which is the screen flickering when watching youtube or any media player on just in full screen mode .. in normal minimized screen there is no problem at all .. My graphics acceleration is fully working . I'm going to attach a video which I captured the problem video link: here my specs: Dell 5570 intel i5-8250U intel U620 / Radeon 530 8Gb of ram 1080P display 240Gb kingston SSD debug_31977.zip
  19. Hello all. I own a otherwise, very supported laptop for OS X (Dell Precision M4800, QHD+ version so with internal eDP connector). After installing macOS and without any kind of injection, I get fully accelerated HDMI and DisplayPort but the internal screen is blank unless I boot with nv_disable=1 (currently using Clover). I've been researching this problem for some weeks now and it seems it may be due to one of these issues: - Bug in K2100M BIOS' DCB table. There's an LVDS entry on the DCB Table (0) which I believe is picked by the Apple Nvidia Drivers. - Errors in DSDT or the SSDT-5 ACPI tables. I've opened up a Repo with the information I already found which is available @ https://github.com/Xeon3D/PrecisionMx800-Hackintosh Sadly my knowledge of ACPI (and I've tried reading the 1000+ PDF, but my lack of programming skills aren't helping as well, not to mention English is not my native language) and connector patching is poor, so I was thinking that maybe with the help of @Hervé and @Jake Lo and You, we might get somewhere.
  20. Hello guys, I want to try Hackintosh on my Dell Latitude E6540.

  21. I'm following Hervé's clover pack #2 as it comes but when i try to boot after verbose logs i just got a black screen, the keyboard's blacklight is turned on but doesn't show anything nor installer EDIT: I can fix it using -igfxvesa but just before finish installation the kernel panics, and got in boot loops (cause kernel keeps failing and panicking)
  22. Please help me with my Precision M6800 I had my laptop working fine with high sierra but after trying to update to Catalina. I struggled with some configurations which I was finally able to fix and install Catalina. for installation, I used the efi from the following topic: I only added some patched acpi files and checked (drop ssdt NvdTable, ssdt cpupm, all oem ssdt) and the installation worked. but since then I am unable to boot into my OS. I get a panic message every time I try to boot into the system. please help me thanks in advance.
  23. Hi Everyone, I already have one hackintosh on macOS Catalina (10.15.4) working pretty well (12 GB and SSD 540GB). I have got one DELL M4800 and would like to do the same thing but al clover files I have already tested are not working. Process is hanging at the end of first boot (something nothing happen or black screen). Does someone have done a full installation on DELL M4800 With M5100 and share the EFI File? Thanks for your help. Fabrice
