Freeze on Apple logo at install on ALienware m11x R2

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Did anyone succeed to install on an Alienware m11x R2 ?

I tried with Niresh on a USB key, when I press enter to launch the install I see the grey screen with the apple for some milli second than my computer roboot.

I tried with Virtualbox (Niresh Maverick and iATKOS Lion Mountain versions) but for each version, when I press enter to run the install I have the grey screen with the apple logo but nothing happens. No loading icon, nothing. i waited for an hour to make sure, but nothing happens.

I saw that m11x R1 owners have been able to install (with a lot of compatibility), I saw on some website that it seems possible with a R2 as well (with less hardware compatibility).

I've been trying a lot of install arguments but with no luck. It would be great if someone could help me.

My main goal is not to have a full Mac environment, but as I want to try developping some Ios application, I need to compile on Mac environment. i'd like to proceed with some test with my PC first without having to buy a Mac.

Thx to everyone that could help me!



my config :


Alienware M11X R2

OS : Microsoft Windows 7 Professionnal

Processor : Intel® Core i7 CPU U 640 @ 1.20GHz

Memory: 4GB PC3-8500 DDR3 (2 x 2GB)

Hard drive :SAMSUNG SSD PM800 2.5" 256GB ATA Device +TDKMedia Trans-It Drive USB Device

Graphic card : Nvidia GeForce GT 335M Discrete Graphics (1GB GDDR3) with switchable Intel GMA 4500MHD integrated graphics (optimus)

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
