Hi everybody, I have 2 laptops both running with Mav 10.9.5: (1) dell D630 c2d, bios a19, nvidia 4gb 800Mhz, 1440x900, GERMAN keyboard (2) dell e6430u i7, bios A06, HD4000 8gb 1600mhz, 1600x900, GERMAN keyboard (this one I have an issue with) Installation was done based on the myhack method and using laptop specific Extras provided in this forum. Thanks for great support and fantastic forum here, by the way. First of all my problem is not related to keyboard mapping. Solving the key mapping problem by using a tool like UKELELE is not what I am looking for. Here is whyâ€¦ Everything that I need seems to be working as it should except for one â€œmissing keyâ€ on the e6430u german keyboard (kbd). I guess my e6430u hackintosh does not recognize the kbd physical layout properly. Whatever kbd layout I select in kbd â€œinput sourcesâ€ window OSX does not show the â€œ<â€œ key that is between the left shift and the â€œYâ€ key on my german kbd at all. Interestingly, on my D630 all keys are shown on the â€œinput sourcesâ€ layout picture and all keys are working. When I boot my e6430u in DOS or FreeDOS all keys are present and working. I am not an IT specialist, but I believe OSX does not load the 105 key but 104 key layout. (?) Last but not least, my D630 came with german kbd from the factory, whereas the e6430u came originally with US kdb that I swapped by German kbd. In this picture below you can see how the kbd layout is being shown in "Input Sources" on my D630: In this picture below you can see how the kbd layout is being shown in "Input Sources" on my e6430u: Hope somebody can help me out here to figure out where the problem is and how to fix it. Thanks a lot.
