Hey guys.


This topic shows how I installed the Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.8.5 dual boot with Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 14R-3560, some steps may be redundant but that’s the way I did it work, if you have any problem just post bellow that I will try to help you.





Dell Inspiron 14R-3560 (Chipset HM77, Intel Core i7 3632QM (2.2 GHz), GT 630M & Intel HD 4000) – System Information attached;

- Dual Boot

Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.8.5

Windows 7

Enable Ethernet

- Enable Sound

Enable Keyboard and Touchpad


Out of scope:


Other models;

Enable GT 630M;

Enable HDMI – Intel HD 4000;

Enable Wifi.




1. Download ImgBurn;


2. Download Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.8.5.iso;


3. Burn the Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.8.5.iso into a blank DVD-R with ImgBurn (AVOID USB DRIVE, I tried with 4 different pen drive on 4 different ports with 4 different distro’s);


4. Burn the Windows 7 Ultimate into a blank DVD-R with ImgBurn;


5. Download and save on a USB Drive the Slytherin ::The Extreme Post-Installation Utility 1.2;


6. Access your BIOS, disable “Virtualization Technologyâ€, set SATA Operation as “AHCI†and change UEFI/BIOS Boot Mode to “Legacyâ€;


7. Press F12 and boot and choose CD-ROM to boot in Windows 7 disk;


8. In the first screen press SHIFT + F10 and type DISKPART  <enter> LIST DISK <enter> SELECT DISK N (where N is your disk) <enter> CLEAN (keep in mind that you’re going to lose all your data) <enter> CONVERT GPT <enter> EXIT <enter> ;


9. Close the CMD and shut down the computer;


10. Press F12 and boot with Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.8.5 with no boot flags;


11. Go to disk utility, create and format 3 GUID Partition Table, 1st as “MAC†– Journaled (Extended), 2nd as “WINDOWS†– FAT MS-DOS  and 3rd as “FILES†– FAT MS-DOS;


12. Quit disk utility and reboot the machine again;


13. Press F12 and boot with Windows 7 disk;


14. Install Windows 7 on the 2nd partition (will be shown as the 3rd  - format as NTFS);


15. After the installation was completed, reboot the computer, press F12 and boot with Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.8.5 with no boot flags;


16. Go to CUSTOMIZE and uncheck Graphics, Ethernet and Sound, then extend Graphics and select only “Backup Graphics Kextâ€;


17. Select the MAC partition and install it;


18. After reboot, press any key, press SPACE and type -x (boot as safe mode);


19. Create your login on the OS X, wait Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.8.5 finishes the installation then restart;


20. Boot again on Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.8.5 without any flag;


21. Open the Slytherin ::The Extreme Post-Installation Utility 1.2 and select ONLY Drivers > Sound > All in One Audio Solution, install, reboot and then select Network > Ethernet > Atheros > ALXEthernet, install, reboot and finally select TouchPad & Keyboard > Generic Touchpad, install, reboot and done!



Note: As I couldn’t enable the HDMI on the Intel HD 4000 Graphics I will try to solve this with the Niresh’s Mac OS X 10.9, so as soon as possible I’m going to post step by step how I did it on Mavericks.




Cheers and beers!

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
