Install Os X On Dell Xps
- By dugajimiSalve ragazzi,
vi scrivo dal mio nuovo Dell XPS 15 9570 e ovviamente sono pronto per il trapianto di cervello.
Prima di iniziare però qualche delucidazione.
Volendo realizzare un Dual boot win10 + macos:
Devo per forza formattare l'hd e reistallare anche windows 10 oppure posso ridimensionare la partizione Se si quale sistema operativo istallo per primo?

the tutorial on insanelymac got too fragmented for a simple forum thread and will not be updated, but still be used for discussion and hints, tips and tricks
Dell XPS 15 (9550, Version of 2016) Sierra 10.13.1 Tutorial
Before we start:
this installation includes real time DSDT/SSDT patching from within clover. This is pretty easy to install. But it is NOT suited for people with no or only few knowledge in Hackintosh Systems. If you only know how to copy commands in your shell and you dont know what they're doing, then stop the tutorial and revert to windows or buy a real mac. Even if you get it running: this system is not failsafe and will be broken multiple times in its usage time, where you have to fix it without a tutorial.
Optional steps are marked in GREEN, System dependent steps are BLUE
English is not my mother-tongue and i'm writing this without proof reading, so please forgive my bad spelling
If you've questions or something doesn't work: first check if you've done all steps of this tutorial! If yes: please read the whole thread (doesn't matter how long it is) before asking to prevent multiple questions. Additionally do a search in google and this forum.
Many knowledge of 'how to hackintosh a dell in the first place' by the tutorial of @Gymnae http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319766-dell-xps-9550-detailled-1011-guide/
Using many kexts and solutions from @RehabMan
What's not working:
Hibernation (works somehow, but high chance to destroy your whole data), Sleep works fine! SD-Card reader Killer 1535 Wifi (rarely used, need replace) nVidia Graphics card (Intel works) FileVault 2 (full HDD encryption) Requirements:
one working MAC OS X Enviroment 16GB USB Stick (larger is sometimes not bootable and/or requires advanced partitioning) MacOS High Sierra 10.13.1 installation file from the app store (redownload, just in case) Knowledge in PLIST editing USB Harddrive for backup - you'll loose all data on your computer! Step 1: Prepare Installation
Use the existing Mac to download the Sierra installer from the App Store and create a bootable USB stick with CLOVER. You can do this with the App 'Pandora's Box' of insanelymac (use google for download link), which is pretty easy to use.
Optional: check if your SSD can be switched to 4k sector size. This prevents NVMe corruption. See https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/4k_sector.md
After you've finished you need to download the Dell XPS 15 specific configurations for clover.
Link: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/archive/10.13.zip and unzip this file or checkout git directly:
git clone https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX.git You only need the folder 10.13, you can delete the 10.11. I'll refer to this folder by 'git/'
Now mount the hidden EFI partition of the USB Stick by entering
diskutil mount EFI Inside the terminal. Mac OS will automaticly mount the EFI partition of the USB stick, but just in case: make sure it really is
Overwrite everything in the CLOVER folder of the partition EFI with the content of git/10.13/CLOVER.
If your PC has a Core i5 processor, you'll have to modify your config.plist in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/: search for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000.
If you could use the 4k sector patch, replace the config.plist with the 4kconfig.plist.
If you use a hynix device and you didnt do the 4k sector switch, you'll have to add the following patch to your config.plist
<key>Comment</key><string>IONVMeFamily Pike R. Alpha Hynix SSD patch</string><key>Disabled</key><false/><key>Find</key><data>9sEQD4UcAQAA</data><key>Name</key><string>IONVMeFamily</string><key>Replace</key><data>9sECD4UcAQAA</data> Go into the EFI Configuration (BIOS) of your Dell XPS 15:
Also disable the SD-Card Reader to reduce the power consumption drastically. Insert the stick on the Dell XPS 15 and boot it up holding the F12 key to get in the boot-menu and start by selecting your USB-Stick (if you've done it correctly it's named 'Clover: Install macOS Sierra', otherwise it's just the brandname of your USB-Drive). You should get to the MacOS Installation like on a real mac. If you're asked to log-in with your apple-id: select not now! Reason: see Step 5.
Step 2: Partition and Installation
INFORMATION: after this step your computer will loose ALL data! So if you haven't created a backup, yet: QUIT NOW!
Dont install macOS yet. Select the Diskutil and delete the old partitions. Create a new HFS partition and name it 'OSX'. If you want to multiboot with Windows 10, then you'll have to create a second partition, too (also HFS! Dont use FAT or it will not boot! You have to reformat it when installing Windows). Make sure to select GUID as partition sheme.
Close the Diskutil and install OSX normally. You'll have to reboot multiple times, make sure to always boot using the attached USB stick. So dont forget to press F12. After the first reboot you should see a new boot option inside clover, which is highlighted by default. Just press enter. If you only see one, then something went wrong.
Step 3: Make it bootable
After a few reboots you should be inside your new macOS enviroment. You can always boot into it using the USB stick. Remove the USB drive after successful bootup. Enter
diskutil mount EFI in your terminal, which should mount the EFI partition of your local installation.
install git/Additional/Tools/Clover_v2.4k_r4003.pkg. Make sure to select 'Install Clover in ESP'. Also select to install the RC-Scripts. This should install the Clover Boot System. Now copy everything from git/10.13/CLOVER to EFI/CLOVER like you did before by creating the usb stick. (if you had to modify the config.plist in step 1, do it here, too). Your system should be bootable by itself. Reboot and check if your system can boot by itself.
Step 4: Post Installation
Because all DSDT/SSDT changes are already in the config.plist, you dont need to recompile your DSDT (albeit i suggest doing it anyway to make your system a lil bit more failsafe, see gymnaes El-Capitan tutorial for more informations). So we can skip this part and go directly to the installation of the required kexts. Open a terminal and goto the GIT folder.
sudo cp -r ./Post-Install/LE-Kexts/* /Library/Extensions/sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.bak 2> /dev/nullsudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.bak 2> /dev/nullsudo ./AD-Kexts/VoodooPS2Daemon/_install.command Now you'll have to replace the config.plist. Because you'll install modified kexts you'll HAVE TO replace the config.plist in your installation. Otherwise your PC will not boot anymore.
diskutil mount EFI replace EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with git/Post-Install/CLOVER/config.plist. Again: if your PC has a Core i5 processor, search the config.plist for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000.
OPTIONAL (in case you've audio problems):
AppleHDA has some problems after Wake-Up. You'll have to plug in a headphone to get your speakers working again. You can use VoodooHDA instead, which breaks the headphone jack most of the time, but makes the rest much more stable.
sudo rm -r /Library/Extensions/CodecCommander.kextsudo rm /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/SSDT-ALC298.aml then remove from your config.plist from the key 'KextsToPatch' the elements 'AppleHDA#1' to 'AppleHDA#7'. Install the package: git/Post-Install/AD-Kexts/VoodooHDA-2.8.8.pkg
i also suggest moving some of the kext from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13 to /Library/Extensions. It's just more stable.
Finalize the kext-copy by recreating the kernel cache:
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcachesudo rm -rf /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernelsudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sometimes you'll have to redo the last command if your system shows 'Lock acquired'.
OSX 10.12.2 removed the posibility to load unsigned code. You can enable this by entering
sudo spctl --master-disable If you're using the 4K monitor, you'll have to copy the UHD enabling kexts to your clover directory:
sudo cp ./Post-Install/AD-Kexts/UHD-Kexts/* /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/ To enable GPU acceleration: Edit your clover config file again and remove the following block from it:
To prevent getting in hibernation (which can and will corrupt your data), just set the default sleep mode to 'suspend to ram' (sleep) instead of 'suspend to disk' (hibernation)
sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 To get HDMI Audio working:
Search for your Boarrd-ID in the config.plist and open /S/E/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/contents/plugin/AppleGraphicePolicy.kext/contents/info.plist with a texteditor. Search for your board-id in there and change the value of it from 'Config2' to 'none'
OPTIONAL (alternative power management):
the whole power management is done by intels speed step technology (HWP), which is enabled in the clover config. If you want to let OSX manage the power management, you'll have to do these steps:
sudo cp ./Post-Install/CLOVER/ACPI/optional/SSDT.aml /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ then open the config.plist (/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist) and change <key>HWPEnable</key><true/> to <key>HWPEnable</key><false/>.
Step 5: iServices (AppStore, iMessages etc.)
WARNING! DONT USE YOUR MAIN APPLE ACCOUNT FOR TESTING! It's pretty common that apple BANS your apple-id from iMessage and other services if you've logged in on not well configured hackintoshs!
If you want to use the iServices, you'll have to do some advanced steps, which are not completly explained in this tutorial. First you need to switch the faked network device already created by step 4 to be on en0. Goto your network settings and remove every network interface.
sudo rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist Reboot, go back in the network configuration and add the network interfaces (LAN) before Wifi.
You also need to modify your SMBIOS in the config.plist of Clover in your EFI partition with valid informations about your 'fake' mac. There are multiple tutorials which explain how to do it like 'http://www.fitzweekly.com/2016/02/hackintosh-imessage-tutorial.html'.
It's possible you have to call the apple hotline to get your fake serial whitelisted by telling a good story why apple forgot to add your serial number in their system. (aka: dont do it if you dont own a real mac). I personally suggest using real data from an old (broken) macbook.
Step 6: Upgrading to macOS 10.13.2 or higher / installing security updates
Each upgrade will possibly break your system!
(Update: after the latest updates in this tutorial the system should be update-proof.)
Step 7: Fixes / Enhancements / Alternative Solutions / Bugs
Afterword and fixes
as i said before: this is not a tutorial for absolute beginners, albeit it's much easier then most other tutorials, because most is preconfigured in the supplied config.plist. Some Dells have components included, which are not supported by these preconfigured files. Then i can only suggest using Gymnaes tutorial which explains most of the DSDT patching, config.plist editing and kexts used in detail and use the supplied files here as templates.
Warning: Some people have reported multiple data losses on this machine. I suggest using time-machine whenever possible! If your device is detected as 'Model Name: Apple Device', see: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319764-guide-dell-xps-15-9550-sierra-10122-quick-installation/page-13?do=findComment&comment=2362337 If you want to save the settings of the display brightness: downgrade to clover 3899, in the never versions the nvram restore is broken. USBInjectAll is not intended for permanent use. You should check which USB are really required to be injected and modify your DSDT/SSDT. 4K Touchscreen only: Multitouch can be achieved with the driver from touch-base.com, but it's not open source - costs > 100 $ Not a bug: if you REALLY want to use the 4K Display natively and disable the Retina Mode (max 1920x1080), see: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/macbook-pro-retina-display-faq/macbook-pro-retina-display-hack-to-run-native-resolution.html Tutorial Updates

The official Dell adaptor DA200 (http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=at&l=de&s=dhs&cs=atdhs1&sku=470-abry) works completly on Sierra 10.2.2. You can use the Network, USB, HDMI and VGA. Everything is Hot-Pluggable a cheap 3rd party noname USB-C -> VGA adaptor didnt work you can charge the Dell with a generic USB-C Power Adaptor, but USB-C has only a maximum power of 100W, so it's either charging OR usage, not both. Dont forget you need a special USB-C cable (Power Delivery 3.0) for charging.
- By DreamwhiteHi there,
I've decided to install Mac OS Mojave 10.14 on my laptop. I've installed it using the vanilla method (dosdude1 patcher, TINU, clover on USB drive)Actually I need to fix some things such as the CMD key (that changed from WIN key to L_ALT key), the brightness control and the fn keys (such as brightness up and down)
N.B. I've actually ordered a DW1560 (BCM94352Z) WiFi M.2 card because my QCA9377 doesn't work.
Below you can find my CLOVER CONFIG, the ioreg and the acpi/origin folder of CLOVER extracted using the F4 method.
Dell Inspiron 5370 HW:
CPU => i5-8250u
GPU => Intel Graphics UHD 620
RAM => 8GB DDR4 2400MHz
SSD => 256 GB M.2
WIFI/BT => QCA9377 (still waiting for the DW1560 wifi card)

- By LegomannHello all,
I'm about to build a hackintosh and want to share my findings in that process. Also maybe get some help.
The goal is to have a fast Mac with large disk capacity for image processing and a Windows gaming machine at the same time. The components I chose:
MSI Z390 Gaming plus i5 9600K 6cores with HD630 graphics 2x8GB Crucial DDR4-2666 nVidia GTX650 Ti (will be replaced later by Vega or Navi card) 1TB Samsung 970 Evo plus NVMe + 4TB WD blue Disk as fusion drive
What is working:
Windows boots and games run. Installation was a bit tricky:
the GTX650 has no UEFI Disk partition has to be GPT since it should be shared between Windows and OSX Windows only installs on a GPT drive if the setup is purely UEFI. I ended up with a 2 screen setup with the secondary monitor on the HD630 being the boot display. The Windows driver uses the GTX650 without problems.
Disabling CSM is important, on MSI this is hidden under the odd entrance 'Windows 8.1/10 WHQL Support' that has to be enabled(!).
Booting and Installing OSX from USB stick. I found this post most useful as a starting point. After some trial and error I managed to boot with the HD630 into the installer
The board has bios version 7B51v14, the most recent is not working (will check again when the system runs without error) Clean up EFI folder, update clover, apfs.efi (from osx installation). Clover folder is attached. Onboard ethernet is working with IntelMausiEthernet V2.4.0
Not working (TODO list):
Fusion drive: Mojave does not support fusion drives. Instead, the installer tries to convert a fusion drive to apfs which, since Mojave, has a similar feature. From command line, I can create a apfs 'fusion drive' with some modified commands:
(will supply later)
However: I seems that afp is buggy when it has to share the disks with other partitions. The plan was to have Windows too on the SSD and a common transfer partition on the spinning disk. Setup of the 'fusion drive' was fine, but the installer always crashes without message, presumably in the moment it tries to access the disk. At the moment OSX is installed on a separate disk, will continue to investigate.
HD630: No acceleration, 6MB video memory
GTX650: No output at all, but card is shown in profiler. Thought it would be supported ootb.
Speedstep: CPU power usage around 8W in idle.

I have a Dell with a Pentium 4 processors. How do I install Mac OS X on it?
Install Osx On Dell Optiplex 7010
S'true MUO has articles on Hackintoshing. no law saying you can't write about it. It's illegal, but Apple is doing too well to concern themselves with small-time experimenters who are getting to know the platform better and may ultimately end up buying a real Mac someday due to the difficulty of making a hackintosh.
It can be extremely hard work for sure, and unless you've got the perfect set of .kexts and boot.plist settings for a particular hardware configuration, you're unlikely to be going into it full time like PsyStar did (drawing Apple's attention in the process).
As for Pentium 4: I agree it's much harder, but not impossible. I struck it lucky with a Pentium 4 experiment: plugged a USB stick with MacOS X 10.6.3 (including the default hackintosh FakeSMC.kext, Chameleon etc.) into my Dad's ancient Pentium 4 at work an it actually booted into Mac. However with only 512mb RAM it was unbearably slow.
But Al, in short, no you can't. Too old, too much effort to get it working eve half-way. If you want o build a hackingtosh, you really do need to buy compatible components from the start.
You can do it, and there is at least one method that should work for most PCs, but if you don't buy Mac OS X, your copy is pirated and therefore you've committed a felony crime. Even if you were to buy a copy of Mac OS X and try to install that, you would get no support for it, and just the act of doing it violates the User Agreement.
Whether legal or not, you'd probably have a much easier time running a purchased copy in a virtualized environment using Parallels or VMware for Windows. Or, you could just save yourself a lot of frustration and buy a Mac.
Unfortunately you can't without experiencing a lot of problems. It also isn't legal to install Mac OS X to anything but Apple computers. I'm sure any attempt to post info on how to illegally install OS X on a non Apple computer would not be supported by this forum. Sorry.
Actually, we have numerous articles on how to install a hackintosh. Here's one:
