Stupendous post. I'm very much a Hackintosh neophyte and was rummaging around for weeks trying to get the sound and other peripherals to work. This post was a godsend, so thank you for your effort and post.

Thanks, in part, to this thread, I just got 10.9.5 to work on my Dell Optiplex 990 (Intel i5-2500, 4G RAM, BIOS A18).

BIOS Setting that worked for me:

System Configuration
SATA Mode: AHCI

Performance
Multicore: ALL
Intel SpeedStep: enabled
C-states: checked
TurboBoast: enabled

Virtualization
Intel Virtualization Technology: enabled
VT for Direct I/O: disabled
Trusted Execution: disabled

I now have MacOS 10.9.5 running on my stable of Dells (Optiplex 755, Optiplex 760 and now Optiplex 990 -- all with GT 640 GPUs (Galaxy and MSI).

I started with my clone copy of Optiplex 760.
Had to used KextEdit to build older version on the following kext (needed to do this on all platforms since 10.9.2):

AppleACPIPlatform.kext
AppleAHCIPort.kext
IOAHCIFamily.kext
IOPCIFamily.kext
NVDAGK100Hal.kext
NVDAResman.kext
(all may not be necessary but haven't put forth the effort to reduce this list)

Added this GPU on the Dell 990: MSI NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 2GB GDDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card N640GT-MD2GD3

hi guys ,
I've got a dell 990 and so far I tried to do the tutorial below, I installed with usb, and after I used multibeast and chameleon like in tutorial. I haven't checked the kernel because when I checked appeared Can not find mach_kernel. Now, if you don't get into safemode, it gets stuck the Apple logo, and if you go into safemode with -x, shows me that. What should I do?

One more thing, after I installed with usb, appeared the error below, and I solved that like in the link.

Error : Article: boot0 Error: The Official Guide

Have you bumped up to El Cap yet? If so, does the user dsdt still apply?

Thanks for the post!
