Dell 7352 Broadwell Big Sur

  • by

I’ve decided to install Big Sur 11.3 on my Dell Inspiron 7352 Broadwell i7-5500u and HD5500. The installation is a little different since you can’t install kexts to SLE or LE folders easily, all kexts must be injected either with Clover or OpenCore boot loaders. I use Clover V5130 and OC 0.6.6 and they both boot perfectly. This is the only Laptop I’ve seen so far with the SD card reader that works with macOS.

My Sierra Installation.

  I use MacBook Air 7,2 as SMBIOS for this laptop.

The Realtek ALC255 won’t be recognized until you patch the DSDT and HDMI won’t have sound until you set frame buffer for connector 1.
