This guide applies to the Core2Duo D430 models. This guide was made with installation of ML 10.8.0 + subsequent update to ML 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 D430 Dual Core Lion bootpack, appropriate kexts removed and/or added and Chameleon plists replaced. EDIT - 20Aug 2014: ------------------------- Bootpack edited following report of missing Broadcom LAN kext. Pack is now fully loaded with all necessary kexts, modules and plists and no post-install EDP is really required for hardware fine tuning. Includes tuned Kozlek's FakeSMC + SMBIOS for native CPU SpeedStep. Extra D430 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 MacRumor 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 and complete 1st boot setup. you're now in ML 10.8(.0) with default graphics at 1024x768 and without graphics acceleration. If you have not already done so, remove your myHack USB installer and put it aside. install combo update 10.8.3 (your wireless may not be supported at that stage, so use Ethernet port or install appropriate Wifi kext). reboot into ML 10.8.3, still with default graphics and without acceleration. 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. 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/DSDT.aml 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 ML 10.8.3 with flag and boot option: "-f arch=i386". You will have full QE/CI ! 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 D430 GMA950. 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.
Hello OSXlatitude community- Newbie here. Got a cheap D430 from a craiglist - Found your site and decided to try it out as my first Mac (physical). After 2 weeks of frustration, not getting anywhere so hope someone else there can help! Issue- Cannot get to initial setup screen Steps I followed 1. Configured my bios per https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2036-bios-settings-d430/ 2. downloaded myhack 3.3.1 3. downloaded bootback for 10.7 (confirmed my bios shows cpu is intel core duo) http://www.osxlatitude.com/packs/Dell/Dell_Latitude_D4x0-lion.zip 4. Created boot usb using the above along with OSX 10.7.5 image (also tried 10.7.4, 10.7.2 and 10.7) 5. Replaced /extra folder with the contents from bootpack 6. Installed OSX using usb stick, selected to install extra from "my own" and selected the extra folder on USB stick 7. rebooted, but got kernel panic screen 8. tried replacing extra folder with one I found in this thread and re-ran myhack / reapplied extra https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2843-d430-kernel-panic-because-kexts-fail-to-load/?hl=%2Bd430+%2Bkernel+%2Bpanic 9. reboot, getting this screen. (just stays there forever) 10. It does boot to setup screen if I use safe option (-x), but then network/mouse/kb is not found. Any help would be appreciated.
For old EDP, I've been always using ApplePS2Controller.kext, that makes both touchpad and pointing stick working. For some reason, with new EDP, my D430 (SL) 's pointing stick no longer working, and I noticed the kext is the same. Why thhe same kext behaves differently? Is there anyway to make both built-in touchpad and pointing stick working? Thanks a lot
