Help Dell N5010

Question

dalis    0

Hi looking for some help with this Dell N5010.  I've tried different ways, but it would be nice to get help from pros.  I still can't get this laptop going.

Specs: Model Inspiron 15 Intel N5010

CPU: Intel i3-350M @ 2.26ghz

Ram: 4GB 1333mhz

HDD: 500gb ST9500325AS ATA Drive

Video: Intel HD 3000 + Nvida GT520mx

Sound Card: Realtek HD

Network: Realtek RTK8102E/ RTL8103e  Family PCI -E Rast Ethernet NIC

Broadcom DW1501 CNB Card half Mini-card

 

What would be the best to put on this laptop.  I've been able to get a GX520 Dell running Snow leopard no problem.

I used to have the same notebook, I hate to break it to you but it's a waste of time. I tried several hackintosh distros (including Niresh) as well as retail installs. I think it has something to do with the BIOS settings, when I tried researching a lot of other people issues with this notebook. If you just don't want windows, linux works great on it, I ran Ubuntu 12.04 on mine. With that being said good luck maybe you'll find something I didn't try. :)

Thanks for your info.  I saw most people had it running and there was a tutorial to do it.  But it never worked for me.  Hoping someone out there that has done it would be neat to run it on this laptop.

I hope you're still looking at this or are able to see it. And I must apologise for my bad installation guide I am about to give you. I can confirm it does work on this laptop. I installed using Niresh's 10.8.5 ISO. During installation you should deselect AppleIntel powermanagement (It's actually called something else but similar.) Then go ahead an install. When it's done, in theory, it should boot up. If it doesn't, not to worry. You should boot -v -x from here. You should be expecting this line for boot to get stuck on.

 

-ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPower Management) timed out

 

In this case, boot up the Niresh installation again. This time you want to click utilities>terminal and type this:

 

-rm -R /Volumes/Osx/System/Library/Extentions (I think you need a capital letter for each word, maybe OSX has to be all capitals? Try everything if you get a error response)

 

From here, just hit tab, and keep hitting it slowly and delete any lines with the word "IntelHD" in it. I don't think you need to delete the full line and just the bit with IntelHD, but if it still doesnt boot try both. Boot normally and see if it works. From here it worked for me. Post replys and I'll try get back to you ASAP. The Keyboard and touchpad do not work during first setup, you will need a USB keyboard and mouse (Not bluetooth either, this didn't work for me till after I had got to the desktop) I am still working on the WIFI/Graphics drivers. I haven't found any that work. So you will be stuck with very, very basic programs and capabilities. Sound won't work, but the ones on the Niresh CD, one of the last few drivers allowed sound, but I have no control over how loud output is.

 

Specs: Model Inspiron 15 Intel N5010

CPU: Intel i5 M480 @ 2.67ghz Ram: 4GB 1333mhz

HDD: 700gb SATA - Using a 320GB for the Hackintosh

Video: Intel HD (I think HD1000. I'm unsure but I think it's that.)

Sound Card: IDT High Definition Audio

Network: Atheros AR9285 (Replaced an Intel Centrino n1000 as it is not supported for Hackintoshing)

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
