Dell E6410 i5 and Lenovo L420 i5 Notebooks can't install Sierra

Hi,

can somebody help me? I can't install Niresh Sierra software on both Notebooks as it is telling me "Still waiting for root device". I already changed BIOS settings for ACPI.

For my desktop PC with i5 processor it went fine.

Thanks

Armado

Have you had any luck with previous releases of OS X on those notebooks?

Plus did you have an option to disable/enable VT-d in the BIOS?

Did you try plugging the flashdrive into another USB port and tried again?

Have you ensured that the flashdrive you're using can load the OS X installer?

Have you ensured that the notebooks you're using can boot from flashdrives/USB?

Did you try using the safe mode bootflag for the OS X installation (-x)?

 

I have found external assistance for the Lenovo L420 which seems to make for an excellent hackintosh judging by the fact that nearly everything works with El Capitan: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/320306-guide-lenovo-thinkpad-l420-with-el-capitan/

I found an El Capitan guide for the Dell Latitude E6410 but I suppose the guide can be used to get you into OS X Sierra without many issues (I hope): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308765-guide-dell-latitude-e6410-nvidia-el-capitan-clover-eng/

You simply have to change the Boot Order in your laptop's BIOS. To access the BIOS, hit the F2 key right when you turn your laptop on (while the Dell symbol is still being displayed). The menu that loads is called the BIOS. Press and hold the ALT key, and press the P key to move through the menu pages. I believe it is the second page where you will see the Boot Order settings. Simply change the first boot device to cd-rom drive and then hit the ESC key and choose YES if prompted to save. Hit CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart your computer and try to boot from the CD. I highly recommend that you set the first boot device to your hard drive so that your laptop starts up faster. 

Check Dell Latitude E6410 Manual for more support.

    • 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)
