DELL XPS M1330 with SSD
Hi OS X experts,
The XPS M1330 laptop is one of the most popular laptops to find guides, reviews, solutions for installing different packages of OS X. Yet, I can't get to the installation wizard due to a kernel panic.
From what I understood from googling, specially through InsanelyMac forums, this kind of panic ( ex. "IOAPIC Version 0x20 Vectors 0:23" ) can be of four causes:
1) unsupported hardware
2) unsuccessful ISO burn, bad DVD quality or corrupted ISO.
3) Incorrect kernel switches on F8
4) Incorrect BIOS settings
1- unsupported hardware:
From the guides and reviews, hunderds of people if not more successfully installed OS X on the M1330 with the same CPU, video card as mine.
Here is my specs:
XPS M1330, Intel Core 2 Duo T9300(2.5GHz, 800Mhz, 6M L2 Cache)
4GB, DDR2, 667MHz 2 Dimm
128MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
SAMSUNG RBX Series 128GB Solid State Drive
Broadcom BetLink Fast Ethernet
Dell Wireless 1505 Wireless-N Mini-card
Dell Truemobile 355 Bluetooth Module (2.0+EDR)
SegmTel High Definition Audio
2- unsuccessful ISO burn, bad DVD quality or corrupted ISO:
I downloaded through BitTorrent the following:
Leo4All v3 10.5.2
iPC 10.5.6. Universal PPF5 Final
BitTorrent checks the files after downloading, I also checked the MD5 for each ISO and made sure they match with the attached MD5 file
I tried different DVD brands, different machines to burn the ISO files I even tried to burn at 2x with verifying data after burn.
3- Incorrect kernel switched on F8:
I tried many combinations of the following
4- Incorrect BIOS settings:
On my DELL XPS M1330 I have A15 Bios, I tried the following options:
Integrated NIC - OFF
Media Card and 1394 - OFF
SATA Operations - ATA
Flash Cash Module - OFF
CPU XD supoort - Enabled (Default)
Multi Core Support - OFF
Dynamic Acceleration- OFF
SpeedStep Enable - OFF
Virtualization - OFF
Internal Bluetooth - OFF
Internal Wi-Fi - OFF
Internal Cellular - OFF (I don't have WWAN card)
I tried to play with the above options, turn some on and some off.
I get stuck at the begining of boot process before the installation wizard starts with:
a) IOAPIC Version 0x20 Vectors 0:23
b) panic(cpu 0 caller...ACPI AcpiOdFree"@...
Any Help is appreciated.
