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

Question

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.

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!!

Hi shoumma, Can you explain better how do you installed Niresh in your Inspiron 3442?
Because I'm trying but when I give the boot flags and press enter, in a second or two the system reboots and never starts the installer.
I'm trying with Chameleon using the same flags that you specified.
Regards.

Hi xlordz,

You need to boot with "xpcm-free -v" kernel flags (without the quotes).It is for Haswell motherboards. Otherwise it will keep restarting.

 

Hope it helps you.

@shoumma with xpcm-free it stopped rebooting, thank you. I was using this flag already, but inside the "Niresh-Mavericks/Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist" file.

Typing it in the console worked like a charm. Thanks.

 

But now I'm having a kernel panic. I tried with just the flags "xpcm-free -v -x -f" and with the xml below. Any combination stops in a kernel panic.

 

Any other tip ? Like some Bios Settings ?

 

<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>
 
 
EDIT: xpcm-free MUST be typed and MUST be the first parameter !!!

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?       
    • i am trying to install yosemite on a asus m2n sli deluxe chipset NVIDIA amd Athlon 64 X2 5600+ ATI Radeon HD 4800   and still i am stuck at pci configuration begin or console error. i tried several kernels and graphic cards with no results please help with these boot flags ive tried -v -x ncpi=0x3000 nv_disable=1 -v -x ncpi=0x3000 nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=No
