To use these files, download the appropriate ISO image to a temporary folder.
Please do read the description before updating BIOSSupport new CPUs.
The BIOS is too old ,maybe it isn't compatible with this MB.
The driver seems *NOT WORKING* on the following models: Inspiron 2500 (BIOS A10) Inspiron 3200 Inspiron 3500 Inspiron 5000e (BIOS A06) Inspiron 5150 (BIOS A23) Inspiron 7000 Inspiron 7500 Latitude CPx H450GT Latitude LS H500ST Latitude L400 On loading the module checks for the presence of a known Dell laptop and refuses to load if running on an unknown system.
You can however force loading of the driver, for testing it on unknown hardware, by passing the "force=1" option to insmod: insmod i8k.o force=1 Note that force loading of the module on unknown hardware could crash your system and will anyway 'taint' the kernel.
As to why you're having these kernel panics, I don't know.
I wish I could help you, but I have no idea where to begin. This is my first time posing and this is also my first hackintosh.
When you see the Dell splash screen, hit F2 and set the BIOS to boot from the CD.Enhancements - Enhanced thermal control to avoid system being slow in Windows.The following files are Dell Notebook Bootable CD Images.left fan status | | | -------------------------- 4.At this moment we have 1 Intel AMI BIOS IDs listed for Dell.NOTE: If you're getting Voodoo/rtclock_init errors or kernel panics, enter the BIOS settings, go to page 3, and change Boot POST to Automatic. I get once booted: "System extension cannot be used The system extension "/System/Library/Extension/IONetworking Family.kext/Contents/Plug Ins/Apple BCM5701Ethernet.kext" was not installed properly and cannot be used. If you do have the IWL2100 card, you can download and install this: have already tried this as it mentions this in one of the guides i've read, although i've noticed my clock is only showing up at 598Mhz but it's supposed to be 1.6Ghz, it's says the correct value in the BIOS though just no XP, but it mentions the clock speed in that screenshot I believe OSX is referring to the front-side bus (FSB). As to why you're having these kernel panics, I don't know.
