I have a Dell D830 with Nvidia 135M video, 4Gb or Ram. I can successfully install 10.11, but when it finishes verbose booting - right before getting to the login screen - it shuts off. It does not do this is the installer, or MS Windows. I see no errors during start up. I thought it was the Nvidia graphics, so I removed those kexts (for testing only). I have used several methods to install (Clover, Enoch, Chimera) and still same result. It only suddenly powers off only right before getting to the login screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Please point me in the right direction. I know this laptop is old, but would like to get a working computer for my daughter - cheaply. Thank you!
deleting system kexts is probably a bad idea

you may be able to enable nvidia via config.plist by injecting nvidia

maybe re install macOS to refresh your kexts

and then upload your problem reporting files

please read the faq for proper hardware profile setup:
