    Help integrated webcam black (no signal)

    Thanks kylec. Grabbed the kext and changed the idProduct to my id. The idVendor was already correct. Unfortunately, it didn't work. I still get nothing but black from the webcam. It did change the name, though.

    Help integrated webcam black (no signal)

    I'm so close to having an almost perfect HacBook Pro with my Dell Inspiron 7573. The final piece is getting the integrated webcam working. I've mapped the USB ports, and the OS can see it. It shows as a device in FaceTime, Skype, Teams, and Zoom, but when I select the device the video is just...

    [Guide] Booting The USB Installer Using OpenCore

    I can't say I've tried an E5450. I have gotten several Dell's working (at least 4 different models), but all have been Inspiron laptops. Based on the specs, it looks like it should be possible. I did an old HP a few years ago with similar hardware specs. Just make sure you swap out the WiFi...

    Stuck after 1st Boot at the Apple logo with full progressbar

    It would be helpful if you attached a .Zip of your EFI. At first glance, it looks like you don't have a valid EC. Are you using SSDT-EC, or patching the EC? Also, are you using Clover or Opencore? How did you build the installer? Unibeast? By Handusing a guide? Which guide? Lots of...

    Opencore stuck at "Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key>..."

    HELP! Please! I've been working on a hacktoshing a Dell 7573 for almost 3 weeks now, and still can't get to the installer screen. The boot log is stopping at: Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</string><key>IOResourceMatch</key><string...

    [Guide] Booting The USB Installer Using OpenCore

    I may have made an incorrect assumption about "getting further". To your practiced eye, can you tell which boot sequence is further along? I see many differences, but can't really tell which one better. mpo_policy_init freeze: apfs_module_start freeze

    [Guide] Booting The USB Installer Using OpenCore

    Thanks Feartech. I had tried that (I have ECDV). Using rename instead of the EC in SSDT-EC.aml caused it to lock up earlier in the process. It looks like at the same spot as before I added those lines to SSDT-EC.aml. I didn't fully disable the SSDT-EC.aml because the USBX is still needed...

    Stuck at APFS_MUDULE_START:1689 (OC)

    Using Fearthech's Opencore laptop guide, I've been getting my Dell 7573 to the macOS installer. It now hangs at apfs_module_start:1689. I've found several posts that describe this error, including in the Opencore troubleshooting guide. I added the HPET, RTC, and TIMR IRQ fixes generated by...

    [Guide] Booting The USB Installer Using OpenCore

    I made it a little further by adding a section to SSDT-EC.aml. I'm going to start a new thread so I don't clog up yours. When (if?) we find a fix, I'll crosspost a link in this thread to help other people. SSDT-EC.aml addition: External (_SB_.PCI0.LPCB.ECDV, DeviceObj) Scope...

    [Guide] Booting The USB Installer Using OpenCore

    That's actually my repo. It's a clone of Khanaset's working Dell 7373 EFI where I was trying to get to the installer, too. I'll see if I can merge some of the settings from the two.

    [Guide] Booting The USB Installer Using OpenCore

    Thank you for this guide Feartech. I've been struggling for two weeks to get to the macOS installer. This has gotten me closer, but it still hangs before it reaches the installer. The info on the screen when it hangs is always just a little different, but always in the same general place. I...

    [Help] Opencore panic Fault CR2

    I'm attempting my first machine using Opencore, and I'm getting a panic trying to get to the installer. I think the pertinent line of the debug output is: Fault CR2: 0x00000000ff7a0020, Error code: 0x0000000000000000, Fault CPU: 0x2, PL: 0, VF: 1 I can get to the Opencore boot menu, and then I...

    Solved > [Help] Dell 7573 Opencore can't get to installer

    I made it a little further. The issue was I had to enable Booter->Quirks->DevirtualizeMmio. Now it's time to resolve the next kernel panic...

    Solved > [Help] Dell 7573 Opencore can't get to installer

    No, I don't get a stop sign. It just hangs. I let it sit for 20 minutes. Also, the USB drive has an activity indicator, and it doesn't blink after it hangs.

    Solved > [Help] Dell 7573 Opencore can't get to installer

    I've been trying for a week now to get to the MacOS installer screen. I've read and re-read the Opencore os-vanilla-laptop guide, and have created the installer USB and plist countless times. This is my 5th or 6th hackbook, but the first with Opencore. Any advice on how to get a clean boot to...

    Solved > Skylake i7-6500U minimum CPU frequency

    I ran the freqVectorEdit.sh script from PikeRAlpha, restored the plugins and disabled CPU HPW in config.plist. The CPU will go lower than my original config, but I looks like HPW still gives me the best power savings. HWP compared to using plugin=1 + freqVectorEdit is almost the same, so with...

    Solved > Skylake i7-6500U minimum CPU frequency

    Sorry for the typo, favoriti. Yes, I searched for X86PlatformPlugin, and didn't find it. I'm guessing it wasn't loaded because I disabled plugins. Intel Power Gadget, however, is showing fluctuating clock frequencies, so I think HWP is working. I believe, but not sure, X86PlatformPlugin is of...

    Solved > Skylake i7-6500U minimum CPU frequency

    Where exactly in IOReg would I look for the CPU states? I poked around a bit, but didn't find anything called cpustates or X85PlatformPlugin. I have noticed that when the laptop resumes from sleep, the min clock frequency is 1GHz. I don't see it drop down where it was before.

    Solved > Skylake i7-6500U minimum CPU frequency

    So it turns out the solution was even easier that that. Not sure if this is a good idea, but it seems to work well. SSDT-XCPM.aml was already added to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched as part of following RehabMan's guide. I left it there. In the CLOVER/config.plist: I set...

    Solved > Skylake i7-6500U minimum CPU frequency

    I have a Dell 7568 with an i7-6500U CPU. I've followed RehabMan's Native Power Management post, and everything is is almost working perfectly. The one issue is I can't get the CPU clock/frequency to drop below 1.3 GHz, even when almost nothing else is running. The Intel specs for the 6500U...
