Niresh Mavericks 10.9 hangs on Inspiron 1720 Laptop at [PCI configuration begin]

Question

So I have hunted on the forums for the last 6 hours and tried everything possible. I have also checked and my laptop is compatible.

 

Here are the specs of my laptop

  • Specification Intel® Core2 Duo CPU T5250 @ 1.50GHz
  • NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS

 

Here's what I have tried

-v -x PCIRootUID=1 ncpi=0x2000 -f

 

Also tried all permutation and combinations of the above with ncpi=0x3000

 

Always hangs at [PCI configuration begin]

 

FWIW, there are a few FakeSMC: [Fatal] failed to initialize SMC device errors, but installer does not hang on it. This may or may not be a problem, but I think that'll come later.

 

Finally Just before [PCI configuration begin], I always have -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport!

 

I followed instructions to the letter and used Win32DiskImager to burn the DMG to USB. I did not touch the DMG in any way. Not sure if I need to. One problem I have is I don't have access to any Mac and also don't have any machine capable of running VMPlayer, so I was so happy when I thought i had found a way at last to do this all in Windows.

 

Please help !!!

Update or reinstall FakeSMC.kext and Graphics is also a issue , you can install it instead of Virtual machine which is better option (IMO)

 

 

 

Enjoy Hacking :)

Sorry, but i don't follow. What Virtual Machine? I'm using Niresh so I can work exclusively with Windows. If Graphics is an issue I understand I can use GraphicsEnabler=No. Please confirm.

 

Finally can you please tell me how I can update FakeSMC.kext in the DMG before I burn USB with TransMac. This is my FIRST install, I don't have it working from before.

 

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

 

PS Another unrelated issue. Windows computer no longer recognizes the USB ? ? ? I guess because it was formatted a certain way. In any case TransMac can still see it. Just to make sure I didn't somehow mangle it, I restored the DMG again on the USB drive then used the following options

 

-x -v PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x3000 -f

 

No dice. Still hanging at [ PCI configuration begin ]

Virtual Machine = VirtualBox or VMWare .. do a direct installation which is better :)

 

Try GraphicsEnabler=Yes or No , also this Nvidia oldest Chipset try using  old kext and Natit.kext 

 

Yeah windows is not recognising bcoz its HFS+ format instead FAT or NTFS which mostly windows uses use TransMac or MacDrive are windows basis tools for OSX ..

 

 

 

-x -v PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x3000 -f

try without -x or npci=2000 its PciRoot=1 or 2 ,3 try any

Virtual Machine = VirtualBox or VMWare .. do a direct installation which is better :)

Yes -  I am doing a direct install. I don't even have Hardware that supports virtualization to use a VM and only Windows machines. Hence using Niresh

 

Try GraphicsEnabler=Yes or No , also this Nvidia oldest Chipset try using  old kext and Natit.kext 

Okay, so I will try both ways for Graphics...However how do I use old kext and Natit.kext? What option do I specify while booting? As I said I simply used Transmac to burn OSX-Mavericks.dmg onto the USB. I feel I'm missing some information here. Appreciate if you could point me in the right direction

 

Yeah windows is not recognising bcoz its HFS+ format instead FAT or NTFS which mostly windows uses use TransMac or MacDrive are windows basis tools for OSX ..

Okay. Someday I will figure out how to recover it in Windows.

 

try without -x or npci=2000 its PciRoot=1 or 2 ,3 try any 

I will try all the following permutations and combinations. Please let me know if I got that right.

      -v PCIRootUID=1/2/3 GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes

I will try all the following permutations and combinations. Please let me know if I got that right.

      -v PCIRootUID=1/2/3 GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes

 

So I started doing just that. When I reached the following configuration...

      -v PCIRootUID=2 GraphicsEnabler=Yes

... instead of halting on [ PCI configuration begin ] I got an error

 

panic : "A kext releasing a(n) OSArray has corrupted the registery <greek> <latin> <mandarin>...

Debugger called: <panic>

BackTrace

<bunch of hex numbers>

 

I will keep experimenting, but I think unless I understand what to do with kext in my DMG, I'm hosed. Hopefully someone can help. I know people have installed on Inspiron 1720 laptop :-(

It is true. I am bald. I have pulled all my hair out. I see a lot of success stories with the 1720 on the web, but all of them start of with a Mac OS to build the installer. I need to get it done using Niresh since I only have windows, and all my friends suck. I mean I don't have a friend who has a Mac.

 

Can anyone please help. I can't help but feel it is something really stupid. There has to be one person out there who's done this with a 1720 and Niresh. I mean 1720 is all silver, looks like a Mac already, I just need its screen to look like one too "(

Wait a second. You are saying all these guys are smoking something I want?

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/184276-osx86-installation-guide-for-dell-inspiron-1720-near-perfect/

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/192864-dell-inspiron-1720-vanilla-1062/

http://gotoanswer.stanford.edu/guide_install_mac_os_x_109_mavericks_on_dell_inspiron_1720vostro_1700_with_nvidia_graphics-1373444/

 

Or are you saying I should remove/disable the nvidia graphics (card?).

 

Either way, please don't take this the wrong way. I know you are trying to help. However your level of knowledge clearly is leaps and bounds beyond mortals, so when you say a sentence like "Mobile descrete graphics are not supported only integrated intelHD graphics its better to use integrated one", while I do understand what that means all by itself, I don't know what I need to do to solve my problem.

 

Really appreciate if you can explain

1) Do I need to modify the Niresh DMG and if so how?

2) What set of options together I should try?

 

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

it was not meant for ,,my knowledge is definite about hacklintosh , yes descrete graphics is not supported in OSX only Desktop is supported and  AMD some variant ..Nvidia is not supported due to Optimus ,,

now above links shows they has used older osx version 10.6 ( which i have already suggested you to use those kexts make sure you will use kexts from ML or Lion , SL will cause a issue )

why don't to give a try to natit.kext and Nvenabler.kext report back

 

but i have not tested any Laptop yet only desktop so may be im wrong

 

Best of Luck

Regards

Yes sir. How do I do that with NIresh though? Is there a guide for 10.6? The links all require a MAC which I don't have. I'm thinking 10.6 is Snow Leopard and I'm good with that if I can only find a guide for Niresh.

 

And again, you are telling me to use Kexts. I understand once OS is runnning I can do Multibeast to apply. How do I fix the DMG to include those on the installer itself?

Sorry if I'm being annoying. Where do I get Kext utility for windows and how to "install it" onto the Niresh Installer?

 

I got the part about not worrying about Multibeast until after I have OS installed on HD.

All right folks. I'm simply going to move on to Niresh for Yosemite. Do not want to do this twice. I will start another thread for Yosemite for 1720 once I get somewhere.

@griftopia i just want to know if this happeing before the installation

Thank you Niresh! That is EXACTLY what I'm trying to explain. This is happening during FIRST installation. As I indicated in my other post, I have better luck with your Yosemite DMG, but it is still erratic. Yesterday I tried 20 times with same boot options and didn't get to the "Select language Boot screen". Please see below link. It would be great if we can move this conversation to that thread since I think your Yosemite DMG has more "stuff" on it that works better. I have ordered additional RAM since Yosemite needs 4GB.

  • Start with the computer completely shutdown.
  • Press the Power button.
  • Immediately, start pressing the F8 key once a second until the Advanced Boot Menu appears.
  • Press the Up Arrow or Down Arrow key to highlight Safe Mode with Networking, then press Enter.

You can read Dell Inspiron 1720 Manual for more troubleshooting tips if still issue exits.

    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
      RAM
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
      Motherboard
