Dell Optiplex 380 install fine, no NIC

Recommended Posts

OS X Maverick 10.9.0 (Niresh) installs great, but everything I've tried ends in the NIC still not working.  I've tried the kext for BRCM 57780 and BCM 57781, and neither work.  My Optiplex did not come with the optional Broadcom NetXtreme PCIe card, nor the PCIe WLAN card.  I've been at this for three days now with no luck.

 

I have the desktop version, with 8 gigs of non-ECC RAM

Unplugged the OS X HD and plugged the Windows 7 back in, to find out that my network card isn't what it says in the PDF file . . .  It is a Broadcom NetLink Gigabit adapter, so I cleaned up a little bit and reinstalled the kext for this adapter.  I feel like I'm one step closer, because when I use the Network Diagnostics, it actually tries to do its thing for a few seconds before (not responding) instead of just flat out failing.  When I get to the dialog that has the types to choose, its stuck on dial-up, and won't let me click anything else before it goes in to (not responding).

 

If anyone has even the slightest idea, I would be eternally grateful.

    • 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?
