Bios settings for dell7348:

Setting: IGD - DVMT Pre-Allocated, Variable: 0x18C
using efi-shell, type:
Code:
setup_var 0x18C 0x3

Post Install


This guide is based on the new method used by RehabMan, called 'Live Patch' or 'hotpatch'.
The DSDT / SSDTs patches are applied by config.plist with the help of SSDT-HACK.aml


Install Clover UEFI in the HDD
it covered at the same guide suggested above
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...de-booting-os-x-installer-laptops-clover.html


Mount EFI Partition
Code:
[COLOR=#000000]diskutil mount disk0s1
[/COLOR]
note: check your efi partitions indentifier, this guide assumes disk0s1


*** edit config.plist and insert your own serial number ***
DO NOT use Clover Configurator for this. It will destroy important settings in config.plist

config.plist
Download from files attached at this post
Copy config.plist to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/


*** SSDT.aml attached at this post WILL WORK ONLY WITH Core i7 5500U ***
You can generate your own SSDT.aml following this guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...01-guide-native-power-management-laptops.html

Mount EFI Partition
mkdir /Volumes/efi
sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/efi
note: check your efi partitions indentifier, this guide assumes disk0s1

Also you can 'diskutil mount disk0s1'

Thanks for the great guide, everything works ok, only problems is that from time to time, the laptop boot to DELL hardware testing utility, Ctrl+alt+dell, and then it boots to OSX.

But i have to questions:
Is it necessary the to set Color Depth in bios?
Is it necessary to have any kext to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/other/ or /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11?

Thanks Again.:thumbup:

Your choice!. I had some graphical issues before changing this, had to use 'secure color profiles', after that, I can use any color profile.

Is it necessary to have any kext to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/other/ or /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11?
Thanks Again.:thumbup:

I always prefer /System/Library/Extensions/

The GPRW patch you're using has no effect. Because you're changing all GPRW to XPRW, instead of just the method name, calls to GPRW are being translated to calls to XPRW. As a result, the code executes exactly the same as if it was still called GPRW. The idea is to rename just the method to XPRW, and have the call sites still refer to GPRW. That allows the GPRW defined in SSDT-HACK to take control.

Hy, after successfully installing OS X 10.11.2 on my DELL 7348 - i5 with the help of your guide, i got everything up and running in no time.
Now, i have tried to change system definition to MacBook Pro 12,1 - A1502 since it's Broadwell based. So i run into the following problem: the Touchscreen you have disabled was working again but the integrated camera was not (practically there was no camera installed ?!)... so i got really confused. I have to mention that i did not use Clover Configurator and / or other software's, just a normal programming editor (Atom.app) to edit config.plist at SMBIOS.
Have you tried to change system definition on your DELL to a MacBook Pro ? Do you have some opinion of what possible gone wrong ?

SMBIOS chosen affects which (if any) built-in USB port injectors are used.

Happy new year @RehabMan

As I made my hack process based on their files and guides, I can see in my config.plist the replace of GPRW is different of yours, is it that you are referring to?

Note: although different, when using a base64_decode tool (for config.plist the key named by find of GPRW) the result is the same for my file and for yours.

- Can you give me a hint of what to do?
Thanks.
