OH, I totally forgot that you were using DellEFIBootMaker 0.3.2. That helps. Yeah, that version automatically includes the kexts and bootloader code, if I remember correctly, during the normal installation. So in your case you may not want to run anything at all!
At least, I think it is that way... Never ran it, actually. :shock:

Yeah, in the thread/quick guide, it says you still need to install a DellEFI, but I've been running it all night with no problems without one. The only thing I've noticed is the SD slot doesn't work, plugging anything in locks up the computer, but if you take it out it works fine, no need to reboot or anything. It also wouldn't boot with a card in the SD slot, even though it was just an adapter for a micro SD, which usually isn't recognized at all unless a mico SD is in it. And when I went to adjust my touchpad sensitivity, it wasn't in the keyboard/mouse options. Other than those two, which I think I can live without :P, there haven't been any differences.

So you are better to run DellEFI 1.2a5 to generate a new dsdt.aml, customize the sleep option, remote cd, etc.
