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.> Thereâ€™s not too much original information here, as itâ€™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.

I was curious as to whether anyone else here is running OS X on a Precision M6300. If so, are you running a "recent" (ML or Mavericks) version of OS X? When I started trying in earnest on the M6300 in my signature, I did a lot of Googling and read a number of posts which claimed the system was a bit of a beast to Hackintosh and nothing later than some 10.7 installation info. My system is only running SL which seemed the easiest route based on the comments. FWIW, my install was a combination of a generic myHack install of 10.6.3, a generic EDP laptop config, a DSDT from somewhere on the 'Net and a bit of experimentation. I was able to upgrade to 10.6.8, though I did replace two kexts with their 10.6.7 counterparts per various posts. As for the system, pretty much everything works- sleep, emulated SpeedStep, audio (except possibly the microphone), wired and wireless networking, two-finger and edge scrolling and accelerated video. Bluetooth would probably also work, but my card seems to have gone bad. If anyone is interested, I'll post my Extra directory. JR
