Dell Inspiron 14, 3442, Intel HD 4400 Graphics, Ethernet, Audio Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm new to Hackintosh. I've install Niresh Maverics on my Dell Inspiron 14 3442 laptop. Here is the specification I found from internet and CPU-Z software:

 

Processor : Intel® Core i3-4005U CPU @ 1.70GHz

Chipset : Mobile Intel® 8 Series Express

Chipset Chipset (Northbridge) (CPU-Z) : Intel Haswell-ULT rev. 0B

Chipset (Southbridge) (I don't know what north/southbridge is) (CPU-Z) : Intel ID9C45 rev. 04

Memory Size : 2 GB

Graphics : Intel® HD Graphics 4400

Ethernet : Integrated Ethernet 10/100

Wireless : Dell Wireless-N 1705x

 

I can't detect the Audio driver, but here something I got from CPU-Z:

 

Multimedia device Location

    bus 0 (0x00), device 27 (0x1B), function 0 (0x00) 

Common header       

    Vendor ID : 0x8086     

    Model ID : 0x9C20     

    Revision ID : 0x04

 

 

I've installed Maverics with Chameleon bootloader. It is booting using flag -x. But it is not booting in normal mode. I've tried to make fix with "grafix backup all" using flag -s. The boot problem is fixed but I can't get the Graphics Driver working.

 

I see that there are not much information about how to get Intel HD 4400 working. I've installed with "IGPEnabler=Yes" flag. Also tried with IntelAzulFB 10.

 

I also cannot make the Audio, ethernet and wireless working. I tried with MultiBeast. But still, can't figure out how can I make them works.

 

Anyone please give me some instructions on how can I make my Hacktop (hackintosh laptop :-D ) support Graphics and the other drivers. I would be very happy on your replies. Also please help with what QE and DSTD is. I saw a lot of post using these words and can't understand what they are.

Try installing kexts for all your needed hardware

I have fixed the graphics problem!!! I'm sharing process for helping the others with same issue.

 

At first I make another fresh install of Niresh Maverics and backup all the grafix kexts. Then I install MultiBeast "DSDT Free" feature (all of them).

 

Then I put these lines in boot.plist :

 
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>No</string>
<key>IGPEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>InjectIntel-ig</key>
<string>0300220d</string
<key>IntelAzulFB</key>
<string>10</string>
 
At this point my graphics is detected as 1024 MB Intel HD 4400. But no glass effect on the menu bar.
Then I installed Intel HD 5000 series kexts from backup kexts folder. And voila, I got the Glass effect and all flicking problems are gone!!!
 
I figure the Audio driver. It is Realtek ALC3234. Can't find any kext for this particular model. Can you guys give me some suggestion please?

On linux (live usb) HardInfo software, I found network controllers:

Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)

Ethernet controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 07)

 

But after installing realtek drivers I got kernel panic.

I have found the network solution!!!

 

The network adapter was Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller.

 

I have used Slytherin http://www.hackintoshosx.com/file/3897-slytherin-the-extreme-post-installation-utility/

 

Installed the RTL8100 driver. I reboot my pc with UseKernelCache=N and boom!!! my ethernet works!!!

But I'm having some trouble with permissions I think. It is telling that the kext was not installed properly and cannot be used. But it's working, that what matters!!

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
