This Branch is for DELL Latitude E7440 with A25 bios system with the following specs: Intel i5 4300U CPU 16Gb Ram DDR3 1600 SSD SAMSUNG SSD SM841 Intel HD4400 GPU Broadcom BCM94352HMB 802.11 ac + Bluetooth 4 Card (Also known as AW-CE123H or DW1550). Creating a Hackintosh PC these days became an excellent topic for none Apple users. It’s costly to buy an iMac or MacBook device, and most people can’t afford it. That’s the reason some volunteer developers try hard to create some tools and application to use them and building a Hackintosh PC with a minimal budget. Welcome to Olarila! In our Community you will find lots of Tweaks, Tips, ISO for all different types of Hackintoshes Desktop and Laptops. We also offer Help & Support on various issues whether it be MacOS, Hackintosh, Mac, or PC related. A Hackintosh (a portmanteau of 'Hack' and 'Macintosh') is a computer that runs Apple's Macintosh operating system macOS (formerly named 'Mac OS X' or 'OS X') on computer hardware not authorized for the purpose by Apple. 'Hackintoshing' began as a result of Apple's 2005 transition to Intel processors, away from PowerPC. What is Hackintosh? The two words Hacking + Mackintosh combines together to form Hackintosh. Hackintosh is a modified version of Apple’s macOS that can run on computer hardware that isn’t meant for it (Basically, a tweaked/hacked version macOS that can be installed non Apple MacBook devices or hardware not meant for it.

For all these steps you will need to edit your config.plist. When messing around with the SBMIOS settings it's recommended create a backup first before proceeding:
- Mount your EFI partition with Clover Configurator
- Navigate to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/kexts/Other
- Backup your config.plist by making a duplicate copy of it and renaming the backup something else i.e. config-smbios-backup.plist
- Right-click config.plist and open with Clover Configurator
- Click SMBIOS on left side
- Copy the Serial Number
- Go to checkcoverage.apple.com
- Paste Serial Number and click Continue
- If it comes back as valid you will need to generate a new serial number until you get a error or invalid serial number
- Go back to Clover Configurator SMBIOS section
- Repeat Generate New and paste to checkcoverage.apple.com until you get an Invalid Serial Number
Now that you have your own invalid serial number you need to replace the Board Serial Number with one containing your Invalid Serial Number along with 5 random digits. Since they can be any digits I keep the last five digits of the Board Serial Number and replace the first 12 with the Serial Number
- Copy Serial Number
- Replace the first 12 digits of Board Serial Number with the copied Serial Number
- Open Terminal
- Generate a unique string by entering uuidgen into Terminal
- Copy & Paste the generated UUID value from Terminal into SmUUID in Clover Configurator -> SMBIOS
- Save config.plist
- Restart Hackintosh
- Select RTVariables in Clover Configurator
- Set ROM value to UseMacAddr0
RTVaraibles -> MLB can be left blank once the steps are followed. You can also use one off a valid Mac that you own if you wish, but it is not required or experiment with an MLB generator if you wish, but again following the steps above you shouldn't have any issues with simply leaving MLB blank.
- Set RTVariables -> BooterConfig to 0x28 for Intel for a AMD/Ryzen machine leave it at the value it's already set at.
- CsrActiveConfig or SIP should be left in the disabled state i.e. 0x67 for more information see: Enable & Disable System Integrity Protection (SIP) on a Hackintosh
Hackintoshes generally use Chameleon or Chimera bootloader (they're really the same thing) to boot Mac OS X. If you own a real Mac, you can just download the PKG installer for Chameleon bootloader and install it onto a USB drive in a single click. However, on Windows, the process is more complicated. In this guide, we will be manually writing the necessarily bootloader files from Chameleon onto a USB drive through a series of command-line tools in Windows. Here's what you'll need:
Hackintosh Usb 3 Card
- An empty USB drive - This USB drive can be any size; it doesn't really matter, since the Hackintosh bootloader will only take up a few megabytes. We'll be erasing this drive, so make sure you back up any files that you have on it.
- Chameleon boot sector files - A collection of command-line tools that you'll need to create a boot USB drive in Windows.
- 'boot' file - The main boot file that Chameleon bootloader will need to start Mac OS X. This file was extracted from the newest version of Chameleon bootloader (as of July 1st, 2013), and can boot any version of Mac OS X, including OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
- 'Extra' folder - A collection of additional kexts and configuration files necessary to get Chameleon bootloader working properly with Mac OS X. This folder should allow most standard Hackintosh setups to boot properly, though you can add your own specific kext files if you wish.
Hackintosh Usb 3.0 Not Working
In the Command Prompt, enter the following command:
Hackintosh Usb Stops Working
Replace 'Username' with your Windows username (include the quotation marks). In the screenshot below, I've replaced my Windows username with a blank line. This command changes the folder that the Command Prompt is working on (cd stands for 'change directory'). Now, everything you type into the Command Prompt will apply to the files in the Chameleon_BS folder. This assumes that you put the Chameleon_BS folder on the desktop-- if you put it somewhere else, you may edit the command appropriately. Next, enter the following command:
Replace 'Letter' with the actual letter of your USB drive (don't include the quotation marks). In the screenshot below, the letter of my USB drive is 'O'. This command sets up the USB drive so that it'll be ready to boot Mac OS X.
Once the Command Prompt finishes working (it'll probably only take a few seconds), eject your USB drive from your computer. Then, plug the USB drive in again; this is necessary to get Windows to recognize your newly set-up USB drive properly.
3. Copy the boot files onto the USB drive
Finally, you'll need to copy several extra boot files onto the USB drive. Download the 'boot' file and 'Extra' folder; these are necessary files for the Mac OS X startup process.
DOWNLOAD: 'boot' file
DOWNLOAD: 'Extra' folder
The 'Extra' folder will be stored inside a ZIP file. Double-click on the ZIP file to open it. Copy the 'Extra' folder into your USB drive. Next, download and copy the 'boot' file onto your USB drive as well.
This completes the setup process. Now you should have a working Chameleon boot USB drive that can help start Mac OS X on most PCs. Congratulations!
NOTE: When attempting to boot Mac OS X with the help of a boot USB drive, make sure that USB drives are set to first priority in your computer's BIOS (Step 4 of our standard Mountain Lion installation guide).
