  1. Attached is my Clover Bootloader Folder and the KEXT drivers I used to install and run macOS High Sierra on my Dell M6800 with NVIDIA Quadro K3100M 4GB GFX Card. I have 12GB of DDR3 1600MHz Ram installed in 3 separate Banks/DIMM slots. I am currently running a vanilla macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 with the 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 (Haswell E). I have my High Sierra installed on my SK hynix SH920 SSD with the Apple File System (APFS) though it is not suggested for Hackintosh, it works fine on this machine. The High Sierra installation indicates that the SATA drivers running on it uses the Intel 8 Series Chipset with no TRIM support. My M6800 does NOT have a Webcam so IDK the answers to if yours will work or not. I do use a USB Logitech HD Webcam C615 1080p camera I have had for years and it works just fine. If you do not know already, you will need to have access to a separate Mac or have some version of macOS installed in order to create your USB. I am not the person to ask for help with that unfortunately. I will help if you ask kindly. Installation: Simply DELETE your EFI folder on your USB and PASTE mine where yours was [IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DELL M6800 or similar DO NOT DO IT TO YOURSELF]. After a successful boot and installation of macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 you can also use Clover Configurator to Mount your hidden EFI partition and DELETE and PASTE these files to that as well. I also suggest using KEXT WIZARD or KEXT UTILITY to install each and every kext in the ZIP attached. What's Working: Sleep/Wake WHILE THE POWER CORD IS PLUGGED IN (Not from closing the screen down, but from clicking the Apple logo and sleep or by timer). Wi-Fi (AirPort Extreme) via Broadcom BCM43xx. 2 USB ports on the LEFT side as USB 2.0 and the 1 USB/eSATA on the back. KeyBoard. TouchPad (only when USB mouse is not plugged in at boot and it is SLOW unadjustable, it's terrible use a USB mouse). iMessage, iCloud, FaceTime, AppStore work perfectly. NVIDIA Graphics work perfectly thanks to the Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixUp kext. THIS FIXES THE BLACK OR BLANK SCREEN PROBLEM. DVD-Drive/Burning if you even care to use CD, DVD disk. What does NOT work (at least for me): Bluetooth (I will update ASAP) 2 USBs on right side are unresponsive. Ethernet/RJ-45 (I know I can fix it, but I don't use a wire. I will include a KEXT to fix this later) Adjusting Brightness (Download an app from the AppStore called Brightness Slider -OR- use Night Shift [will not adjust brightness, but will be bearable]). Native Sound (I am working on finding a solution without using VooDoo). No Card Readers work (Personally IDC for them. I like digital, but I love USB, so I will work on that.) Any questions about any of the above feel free to ask!! Dell m6800 HS 10.13.4.zip
  2. Hey thanks for the guide! Unfortunately it didn't fix my issue, I tried the method mentioned in the above thread and I suspect that with my HDMI display plugged in (because that's the only way I can use my hackintosh) it was generating the external display's edid. So I installed windows on my computer using the Nvidia control panel and selected my internal monitor's edid. I tried injecting that edid(internal display) using clover but still only the external display is working with graphics acceleration. P.S. I also tried booting by disabling the Nvidia from clover and followed the guide above but Darwin Dumper then wouldn't give me those three files a.k.a my EDID folder debug_28456.zipwas empty. Please it will really appreciated if you could help me through this issue. I'm adding my problem reporting files.
  3. Hi All. I have a problem with my hackintosh. Everything was running smoothly but I just noticed that my battery charge status was differently with HWMonitor(real charge shows) and battery status on menu bar. See attached picture. Second one is my boot was slow even on SSD- Samsung 840 Evo. It took 32 seconds(trim enabled) and 28 seconds(trim disabled) to boot my hackintosh. I have reporting files attached. Any help will be greatly appreciated. My specs: Dell inspiron 5558 A14 Bios i5 5200u(broadwell) Nvidia 920m(disabled via dsdt) 12GB RAM 120GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD(main drive) 500gb Seagate & Toshiba HDD(im changing secondary drive-CD Caddy as im migrating files) Kext used and patches can be seen on my reporting file. Thank you EDIT - additional info: Im dualbooting High Sierra & Windows Windows 10 boots in 7 seconds I am using APFS Clover UEFI Noticed also that HWMonitor shows that my ssdlife is 99% while on windows(hd sentinel and ssdlife pro shows 100%) Troubleshooting done: •disabled nvidia via bios •fixed usb power and usb limit via ssdt for usbinjectall •tried booting with all kext removed. Left Fakesmc, usbinjectall, realtek only for booting •tried reseating all hw(memory, hdd, cmos battery, wifi card, HDD caddy) But issue still persist - slow boot and battery not shown properly reporting-6.zip

    Dell Optiplex 990 SFF I7 1050TI

    Sucessful Hack of a optiplex 990 10.13.4 with a 1050TI card runs great just gonna have to doctor up the case to fit the card.
  5. Hello friends, Many of you have noticed that after upgrade to high sierra whenever you machine sleeps, be it a display sleep or a system sleep, the screen turns out fully white with garbled lines, or it might turn black with just the cursor moving. If you try and press few keys you will find out that the machine works but the display doesn't. If you want to know a little background info, read on, else skip to fix. On my ASUS R541UJ this bugged me a lot. I tried hell lot of things like, re patching DSDT, trying with all 15 ig-platform-id (for Kabylake), still, the issue persisted. I also have an ASUS A555LA (which I am trying to make a perfect MacBook Air). So, in my process of making my A555LA a perfect MacBook I added a ALS (ambient light sensor device) and then, changed vendor-id along with product-id of the laptop's display to that of Apple's display i.e. PID: 0x9cf2 VID: 0x610 for MacBook Air's display.. Whatever I do on my A555LA, I replicate the same on my 2 other ASUS laptops. So, I did the same on my R541UJ (the one affected by this annoying bug) And to my surprise, that issue was fixed! Then, I disabled the ALS device in my custom SSDT (I generally make a dynamic configurable SSDT that works for all my machines, See here) and that issue didn't come back. So, I finally came to the conclusion that it was due to incorrect vendor-id and product-id of my display in IODisplayEDID or EDID. Enough talking, let's see how you can fix this in a few simple steps. How to fix: In order to fix this, as you might already know from above, we need to change our display's product and vendor id to that of Apple's display. There are 3 ways for this, Injecting custom EDID using clover, Using a display override, Using a custom override kext (DispalyMergeNub). I love CLOVER so will be covering that part of the fix in this guide. Also, injecting EDID with clover is preferred as it will also work when booting recovery partition. (Not the same with Display Overrides and DisplayMergeNub) Update your CLOVER to latest version (nothing to do with this fix but is a good idea to have you boot loader up to date) Download Darwin Dumper from here Download FixEDID app from here Download my script attached to this post. Open Darwin dumper and uncheck everything except EDID. Then, select run from the left pane. It will dump your EDID and then it will open a folder where it dumped the files. In the folder you will find an EDID folder. Upon opening it you will see 3 files namely, EDID.bin, EDID.hex, EDID.txt (All three files are your EDID dump except in different formats). We need the one in BIN format for FixEDID.app Copy EDID.bin from DarwinDump*/EDID to your Desktop (Dump* is the darwinDumper output folder) Open FixEDID.app and select open EDID binary file. Choose the EDID.bin file you copied to desktop. If you look below "Open EDID binary file" button, you will see a drop down menu saying "Apple iMac Display 16:10" Select it and choose "Apple MacBook Air Display 16:9" (Note: You may try experimenting with different models, I personally use "Apple MacBook Air Display 16:9" on my A555LA and "Apple MacBook Pro Display 16:10" on my R541UJ) Make sure display class is set to "AppleBacklightDisplay" for we are overriding our internal LVDS display. (AppleDisplay is used for external displays like that on HDMI or DP) Click on Make button (Note: You won't see any sort of confirmation but the app has done it's work) Close FixEDID and come back to your desktop. You will see a host of new files there. (3 files to be precise) For this guide, you just need DisplayVendorID-xxx folder. Open it any then you will find a file named "DisplayProductID-xxxx" Copy this file to the Desktop. Now we need to extract EDID that is in base64 format and then convert it to HEX format as required by CLOVER. Worry not, I got you covered. Now is the time to run my script. Assuming my downloaded script is in Downloads folder, open terminal and type: # Change working directory cd ~/Downloads # Make script executable chmod a+x get_edid.sh # Run and get EDID to inject ./get_edid.sh ~/Desktop/DisplayProductID* ` This script wil give you EDID you need to inject using CLOVER, like: Copy that EDID and paste it in your config.plist under Graphics > EDID > Custom (You can use clover configurator as that will save you from manual PLIST editing which is not recommended for novice users) Also, set Boolean Inject to True (YES) under config.plist > Graphics > EDID. See below screenshots for reference: Any Plist Editor(Xcode): Clover Configurator: Reboot and Voilà! You won't face that dreaded issue ever again until you remove custom EDID. LOL. You can verify if the EDID is being injected by opening terminal and typing: ioreg -l | grep "IODisplayEDID" ` The output should match the output of get_edid.sh Problem Reporting: See How to generate proper problem reporting files Note: This issue mostly seems to effect machines running High Sierra on Kabylake hardware (maybe Skylake too?). I have personally tested this on Sierra (with and without skylake spoofing) turns out that Sierra is not affected by this. Note: Upon booting up with custom EDID in place you will see that your colors are not such bright and crisp. YMMV. (Coz our's isn't a Apple branded display ). To fix that, open system preferences > Display. Select "Color" tab and choose "Apple RGB Display" Hope this helped someone! Regards get_edid.zip

  8. Hi, I'm trying to install macOS Sierra on an fujitsu siemens scaleo p2 g31t-m2. The system have a core 2 quad processor. (= Sandy Bridge) BEFORE: I had an version of snow leopard version 10.6.8 running on the system. I have the system OS upgraded to el capitan on following method. I have el capitan installation file downloaded from the mac app store and an bootable USB stick. I inject NVIDEA. The system I can install with using the following bootflags: dart=0 nv_disable=1 (-x) -v After the installation completed is I have the Clover bootloader installed on the HDD from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot (chameleon, stolen and rebranded)/. The systems was perfectly updated to OS X El Capitan and can now boot without my USB connected and works smoothly. CURRENT: Now I'm trying to update the system to macOS Sierra. I have again an bootable USB stick, again selected for the options usb, sierra and inject nvidea. So far all good.... But now i want to boot from my sierra USB with the same bootflags as before "dart=0 nv_disable=1 (-x) -v" but i can't get to the installation screen. the screen hangs on the apple logo or when i used the bootflag -v the screen hangs on line 1 with plus signs. (see attached picture). How can I solve that problem, so I can install macOS Sierra ? Is it possible for my system/configuration ? Thanks in advance Regards,

    E6500 Sierra Research

    Hello everyone, After the surprisingly huge success with El Capitan, I decided to give Sierra a try. This thread is dedicated to get at least the installer running on the Dell E6500. Thoughts, opinions and discussions are also very welcome. (1) Using dosdude1's Sierra Patch, the installer USB creation was a breeze. Without the patch, the installer won't even try to boot (incompatible Mac). http://dosdude1.com/sierrapatch.html (2) Installer USB loads fine. (3) NVDAStartup causes kernel panic when trying to boot into the installer. nvda_drv=1 nv_disable=1 InjectNvidia=false does not work. I am not sure why but Nvidia still try to load the driver when nv_disable=1 is already present. I will post my DSDT.aml, config.plist and kexts later (still using the same ones from El Capitan). That is all for now. Any pointers and tips are highly encouraged. Thank you.

    ASUS G73JW

    Hey guys, I've got this Beast (ASUS G73JW) laying around for the past 2 years and I don't want to really sell it off since it's been helping me out in my audio production over the years. I'd like to install OSx on it but really don't know why every time I time I try, I keep failing. I've tried NIRESH's....worked till the desktop but can't boot into the OS without the USB. Another thing is I get NO WIFI,AUDIO,GRAPHICS. Can anyone help out with a Step-by-Step guide on how to install on it. I'm trying to run LOGIC PRO as my main DAW after FL STUDIO. Cheers, MXPYNE
  14. I've managed to install El Capitan on my Latitude E5440. The only thing I've gotten to work so far is the ethernet. I tried looking at tutorials to get the Intel HD 4400 graphics to work but nothing was successful, only thing I did was make it display the name of my graphics in the about this mac window. And I've also tried pretty much every tutorial on this site for the E5440 and still nothing is working. Please help me.
  15. Friends'm installing OS X El Capitan, download the installer again, prepare the USB over and over again, tried many "boot flags" but during installation 16 minutes after me out this error: "An error occurred while extracting files from the package "Essentials.pkg" is no longer what else to do if anyone knows of this error please let me know how I can fix.

  16. Hey All, Its been a while since I've been here, but I got OS X Yosemite Final/GM 3/ PB 4 running on the E6420 via the following means. Credits: @Jake Lo - DSDT patches for HDMI audio, Most of the boot pack actually. XD @Pokenguyen - teaching me clover, giving me a WIP guide that this guide is partially based on, A lot of help along the way, config.plist and many other things, the reason clover is working on the e6420 (: @Stork - Starting the research thread and figuring out the original stuff back on Lion (: @RehabMan @BpedMan @sontrg @Yeahoon and myself - Work on the VoodooPS2 Project for ALPS, its come a long way and is still in development here: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2545-new-touchpad-driver-for-e6520-alps/ @All - Debuging and helping out, without all of us, we wouldn’t be this far Myself - Patching a new version of SNBGraphicsFB for VGA/HDMI using telnax's method, writing the guide, patching the new RTC, editing VoodooHDA. None of the Wifi cards that shipped with our model are OS X compatible. Please order the one listed in my signature and replace using the guide created by Dell here. Other cards work, such as the one listed in Jake Lo's signature (He is all over the site, just look around). To Make Bootable Media (Pulled from here and here) 1. Download Install OS X Yosemite.app (Any version will do, i.e. DP1, DP2, DP3, DP4, DP5, DP6, DP7​ (preferred), etc.) 2. Right click on the installer > show package contents 3. Navigate to Contents/Shared Support and double click on the InstallESD.dmg, the .dmg should now mount and appear on your desktop 5. In the terminal issue the following command: open "/Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.dmg" 6. Now, open disk utility and restore your usb drive, NOT the drive, but the volume contained on the drive with the mounted "BaseSystem" NOT the .dmg. 7. Rename your usb drive to Yosemite. (not the dmg) You can tell which drive is the USB from the size. 8. Issue the following commands in terminal: cp "/Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.dmg" /Volumes/Yosemite/ cp -a "/Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist" /Volumes/Yosemite/ rm /Volumes/Yosemite/System/Installation/Packages cp -a /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/Yosemite/System/Installation/Packages 9. The last command may take some time, go get some food 10. Now install Clover to your USB drive. (download it from here) Selecting the options shown in the linked image: http://imgur.com/if2O3hQ 11. Unzip the flies provided in E6420Yosemite.zip 12. Move all the files in the unzipped /Clover folder to /EFI/EFI/Clover/, make sure to choose to MERGE these folders. Installing 1. Shut Down 2. Enter BIOS via tapping F2 during boot 3. Change SATA Operation to AHCI (Leave the Booting mode on Legacy! UEFI is not support/does not work.) 4. Click Save and reboot 5. Hit F12 as computer boots, select USB Drive 6. Select boot "Mac OS X from Yosemite" 7. If given a keyboard error, spam the spacebar 8. Use disk utility in the "Utilities" drop down menu to format your HDD to "Mac OS Extended Journaled" and make sure to click options and select GUID partition table, proceed with formatting 9. Follow installers prompts to install Post Install If running anything other than Yosemite Final/GM 3/PB 4 (You can update via the Mac App Store or via the delta installers found here. After installing these click restart, you will most likely end up having to hard reset (hold power button), then boot from USB, but this time select "Boot OS X from "Your Drive Name". 10.10.1 is SAFE to update. No changes at all for this release, just Mac App Store Update. 10.10.2 (14C68m) Beta is also safe, and graphical glitches actually went away for me after this update, wouldn't recommend the Beta to the Public of course though. For UEFI Mode: Although it works, it is somewhat buggy, because Dell left UEFI on our model Half-working. I really don't recommend this though. If you really want to use it, go ahead and select UEFI checkbook in the Clover installer and add the boot entry to your UEFI BIOS Selection "/EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi" and boot it. For Legacy Mode: 1. Download and run the Clover installer once again from here, select the following things show in this image in the installer: http://imgur.com/ipc5mTq PLEASE also check the "Install Clover Preference Pane" checkbox 2. Download and install Clover Configurator from here 3. Open Clover Configurator (From now on referred to as "CC") and go to the EFI tab, click mount and enter your password. 4. Re-download the attached E6420Yosemite.zip and extract 5. Move the folder /Clover from the unzipped to your hard drives /EFI/EFI/Clover/ location, make sure to choose to MERGE these folders 6. Reboot 7. For Multitouch Gestures go to System Preferences ==> Keyboard ==> Shortcuts ==> Mission Control ==> Now chose the action you want (i.e. show dashboard) and click in the shortcut box, and do the gesture you want (it will show some weird keys, ignore it). 8. For Proper Keyboard, go to System Preferences ==> Keyboard ==> Modifier Keys ==> change Command Key to Option Key, and Option key to Command Key. 9. Run the script "Remove Problematic Extensions.sh" script (it will create a nice shortcut to /System/Library/Extensions/ called /s/l/e, it will also remove problematic kexts. To run this, extract the file, then right click the extracted file and choose "Open With" change from "Recommended Applications" to "All Applications" and select terminal, then enter your password. 10. Reboot Working Wifi (Athertos AR9281, recognized as native Airport Extreme oob, if you want one, the ebay auction is linked in my signature) Keyboard USB Bluetooth App Store and iMessage Screen Brightness Battery Percentage - Broken from DP5 onward.

Partially Working SD Card - Voodoo SDHC is buggy, only works sometimes on our model and breaks sleep, still want it? Find it in the folder labeled VoodooSDHC and install via kext wizard, then reboot. Battery Percentage - No known kext works. System still reports battery to the low battery (>10%) to the blinking yellow light on the laptop. We will have to wait for AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext to be updated. Just keep trying it at every new release. The DSDT is patched for it when the kext works with 10.10. Not Working Nothing!!!

    Latitude E6400

    Hi guys! Im recently new to hackintoshing, one of my friends turned me to this website when i bought a used dell latitude and wanted to turn it into a hackintosh! Just a couple questions about how to do it, since i dont have much access to a mac, is it possible to create a boot installer with USB a different way? and If so could anyone recommend one to use. I read the fourm about how to install it, ive tried using Yosemite-Zones .dmg with no luck i cant get it to boot, and when i get it to the Apple loading screen with the progress bar it loads about halfway and then gets stuck. So i thought about making a new installer following the instructions on this webpage, it looked simple enough! Thanks guys, any comments are welcome!
  18. Hi, System specs: CPU: Intel Core i7-4700MQ (Haswell) Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz HDD: SATA: 1,5TB 5400RPM (1Empty SATA and 1 Empty SSD slot.)

Kexts injected by clover: Battery management works with Rehabman's ACPIBatterymanagement.kext and the default DSDT, no edits needed. Touchpad works with Rehabman's VoodooPS2Controller.kext. Just the kext, multitouch works and can be managed from the Trackpad panel. Ethernet works with ALXEthernet.kext. Kexts in S/L/E: AppleHDA.kext needs to be patched, files attached.

  20. Hello I have successfully installed mac os x 10.8.1 (Update:Now Running 10.8.3 10.8.4) to my laptop but you need to follow my guide to get installing and mostly fully working and if you are smarter and have more knowledge than me, I welcome you to help me getting it fully working to be macbook killer lets get started. 1- you must have bios version 1.07 or lower(because newer version selecting switchable or integrated graphics option removed ). if it happen and you have newer version just download 1.07 and install it and it will downgrade without any problem . 2- make sure to select integreated graphics from bios 3- make bootable USB using this guide(myhack) 4-download my DSDT+SSDT+boot.plist+smbios from attachments. and special thanks to EMlyDinEsH for making DSDT and SSDT for me along with many patched kexts- Dont have DSDT ? click here 5-put it in myhack OS X installer in extra folder 6-tocuhpad driver still in development - I used beta elan tocuhpad v4 kext to get touchpad working during installation - downlaod it from here , touchpad driver is out ! 7- replace kext with the attached one to S/L/E = System/library/extensions and remove nullcpupowermanagement.kext 8- Use legacy USB support from multifail to get blue USB 3.0 ports working with normal USB 3.0 speed, this is the only way worked for me. OR Go to /System/Library/Extensions and right click on IOUSBFAMILY.kext and select Show Package Contents then go to Contents -> Plugins and delete AppleUSBXHCI.kext you will get camera and blue usb 3.0 port to work togethor using this method New= 9-install IONetworking kext for Ethernet and fixing appstore install error that's it install mac and then install updates to 10.8.1 you may get errors during installation but that fine . installing 10.8.2 gave me too much error and panics so that's why I use 10.8.1 Install 10.8.3 combo install 10.8.4 comob and after finish replace only this kext(AppleACPIPlatform.kext) from 10.8.1 or use my kext from the attachment. + Install patched AppleHDA . Also added new DSDT with HDMI working with new boot.plist And dont forgot to donate for EMlyDinEsH CONTACT HIM AT HIS EMAIL: hem_dinesh@hotmail.com some pictures: buy one from ebay sorry for bad English- its not my mother language Also I need some guy from the crew to add my files to EDP. I tried so many times but submit button not working, My EDP files now included check them here patched kexts.zip Extra file with DSDT and boot.plist for HDMI .zip AppleACPIPlatform.kext.zip IONetworkingFamily.kext.zip

  22. Hello OSXLatitude forumers, I almost hackintosh a Dell Latitude D630 Here are my installation method : 1: Make the USB installer by using MLPostfactor and Mountain Lion App 10.8.3 2: Install bootloader to the USB installer 3: Take kext from bootpack provided here and replaced it with the default in the installer 4: Change SATA from ATA to AHCI 5: Boot with the bootflag -v 6: Successfully booted, directly go to Disk Utility and format my HDD 7: Go to installation, selected the drive, and the install process begin 8: Freeze at 19 minutes left! I have done this process many time. When install, it WILL freeze at 19minutes left. I left the laptop for 8 hourse, still hang. What should i do? Also, usually I can move the cursor. But when it freeze, I cant move the cursor and the progressbar of the installation didnt move at all. Stuck forever What the fix guys?
  23. Hi, I've succesfully installed mavericks on my dell 3521 using Myhack but i've noticed some problems after fine-tuning with the edp app. First of all, the patched appleintelcpupowermanagemet.kext that gets installed to get my powermanagement working, gives me a kernel panic after rebooting. I fixed this by downloading a patched version from the niresh website. After using their patch i could boot and everything works good now. my second problem is that when i boot my hackintosh with -v, it hangs for a long time at "ioapic version 0x20 vectors 64 87". How can i fix this ? I know it doesn't seem to be an error but it takes damn long to boot when it always stops there. And last but not least, i found out that my laptop is using the realtek alc282 audio chipset but the edp recommends to install a version of voodoohda... I tested it by removing voodoohda and patching my applehda using the hackintosh vietnam tool and got my my audio to work out of the box. What would be the best to be using ? voodoohda or a patched applehda ? Thanks.
  24. Hello everyone, I did a standard myhack installation on my dell latitude e6400. I got through the installation fine, and I am able to boot in safe mode. However, I cannot boot without -x, so I am wondering what kexts I have to delete or install, or what boot flags I may have to put. Also, when I boot in safe mode, my graphics are stuck at a low resolution, so what kext do I need to install for graphics on the dell latitude e6400. I have intel gm45 graphics (that's what it says in about this Mac and bios.) I would much appreciate help. I used this guide: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/6123-dell-latitude-e6400-mavericks-installation/

    M6300 step-by-step OSX10.9

    Greetz This is (hopefully) an easy, step-by-step tutorial for installing OSX10.9 (and other Operating Systems) on your M6300. <UPDATE: I was able to update to 10.9.3 just fine after this installation.> There’s not too much original information here, as it’s all been regurgitated from borrowed ideas in other posts and advice in forums everywhere. A special THANK YOU to Sergeant for his advice and files that got me started on the right path for this! Note: The attachments are a PDF with the step-by-step instructions and the files necessary to add to your OSX Installation Boot USB. Post Install 1: I followed the advice in another post here about the running myHack's myFix to fix the sleep issue. My PC does wake up, but sadly my screen remains black ... However, a nice "side-effect" from running myFix is that my internal WiFi is now working! Yay! Post Install 2: I've just updated this to 10.9.3 and then immediately (before the reboot) ran myHack's myFix (full). Everything booted up happy happy.
