Dell D630 Dvd Drivers For Mac

Your DVD drive should not need any drivers, but it may need a Firmware Update. It seems to think the drive is USB, more importantly, there are two primary IDE controllers listed. Look at updating the chipset drivers for your motherboard (in the Dell driver updates for your system model).

Dell D630 Dvd Drivers For Mac

How to install Mac OS X 10.6.3 on a Dell Latitude D630 laptop
This is a guide I put together for anyone having problems installing Mac OS X on a Dell Latitude D630. Let me just mention that I got it at 97% perfect. The only problems that I currently have are:
- PCMCIA slot does not work.
- System hangs when left alone to long and goes into sleep mode.
- System does not power all the way down when Shut Down is selected.
I am currently looking for a fix on these issues, so if you know anything your post would be greatly appreciated.
Without further a due let’s get started.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED.
1. Download iBoot from tonymacx86.com (must be a registered user to access files) and burn to a CD.
2. Go BUY a copy of the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Upgrade DVD. (It’s only 30 bucks)
3. Download MultiBeast from tonymacx86.com . This you can burn to a CD as well or you can just put it on a thumb drive like I did.
4. Go to Dell.com, download and install the latest BIOS for your machine (At the time I made this it was BIOS version A17).
5. Make sure you have an external keyboard and mouse as the ones on the laptop will be disabled. This is only in the beginning so don’t worry you will get it back.
PREP FOR INSTALL
OK now you have to prep your D630 to be able to run Mac OS X so follow closely or your install will crash.
1. Insert your iBoot disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive.
2. Boot into your BIOS by pressing F2.
3. Scroll down to Onboard Devices /SATA Operation and change to AHCI mode.
4. Press Esc and select Save and Exit.
5. When you see the Dell screen again press F12 to enter the One Time Boot Menu.
6. Select CD/DVD/DVD-RW Drive or whatever CD-ROM drive you have installed.
7. This will boot into the iBoot disc menu.
8. Once you see the iBoot icon eject the disc and put in the Mac OS X Install disc and press F5 slowly until you see the Mac OS X Install DVD icon show up.
9. Arrow over to highlight the icon and press Enter. This will start the install.
10. Just before installing the Mac OS go to the top and select Utilities and select Disk Utility.
11. Select your drive from the list on the left and click on the Partition tab on the right.
12. Select the number of partitions you want and change format to Max OS Extended (Journaled).
13. Click on Options and select GUID Partition Table.
14. Click red dot to exit Disk Utility and continue the installation.
15. Follow all the direction and input your information and select desired preferences.
16. After the installation is completed it will ask you to restart. Reboot your machine and press F12 again to get back to the One Time Boot Menu and eject the Mac OS X Install DVD and insert the iBoot disc again.
17. Select CD/DVD/VD-RW Drive and press Enter.
18. This time select the hard drive you just install the Mac OS in and press Enter.
19. When it boots you should see the cool little Mac intro video. After video is done follow the prompts and enter all the information you want.
20. Once you get to the Mac desktop download the Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.7 update.
21. DO NOT REBOOT after update is complete.
22. Insert your thumb drive containing the MultiBeast package.
23. Launch MultiBeast and select the following from the list of options:

Note*: The EvOreboot package is optional. It is supposed to fix shutdown/sleep problems, but it didn’t work for me and I found other forums that mentioned it did not work for the Dell D630.

24. Reboot your machine and Viola. You now have a 96% working Hackintosh. To get is up to 97% you need to get that NIC card working.
25. Go find BCM5722D.kext. I can’t remember where I found it, but I have the file. Right now I don’t feel like putting up a web page to add the file to. So good luck with that and enjoy your new Hackintosh.
Note*: The three remaining problems that you will have are:
- The PCMCIA slot does not work.
- The machine won’t wake out of sleep if left alone to long.
- A work-around for this is to go to (System Preferences > Energy Saver) and change computer sleep to never and un-check Put hard disk(s) to sleep when possible.
- Does not shutdown all the way. (Everything will go black but the power will still be on. Just hold the power button till it shuts down completely.)
