How I installed Niresh's Mac OS X 10.8.5 on a Dell Inspiron 14R-3560 with Dual Boot (Windows 7)


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!

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
