Installer Issues M17x R1 Alienware (ACPI debugger panic)

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I have an existing Niresh Mavericks Hackintosh running on an M17xR1. Thats the 1st Gen after Dell bought them over. I have earlier been able to use the Mavericks installer with the following bootargs - npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=1GraphicsEnabler=No -v

 

This time however I am constantly struggling having tried a vanilla install several times and in several different ways. I finally Came back to the HackintoshZone(Niresh) installer since its my comfort zone. So far I've tried with and without VT activated with and without all npci options and PCIRoot options along with combinations of USBBusFix and GraphicsEnabler along with pointing to a 5,5 SMBIOS on another partition. I can't seem to be able to get around past the initial boot screen. The device either locks up at the PCI config or on a CPU Panic. Most of the time this is caused by ACPI debugger panic. I do not see anyway to modify the Hackintosh Zone disk. (or i haven't figured it out yet). Though i did manage to unhide and figure out which SMBIOS the installer looks at. 

 

My Specs are as follows - Alienware M17xR1

CPU - Core2Quad Q9300 Extreme

RAM - 4x2 (8gb) Kingston

Twin Seagate 500GB drives - RAID disabled (One has Linux Mint the other is the old Mavericks install)

Motherboard - nVidia MCP79(9300 Onboard)

Graphics - nVidia 9300 onboard (used only for installation) 2x280M(1GB) SLi(Dell nVidia)

Synaptics Trackpad

Panasonic Battery

Seiko-Epson 1900x1200 LVDS display

CA01N BD-Drive

 

Notes - There is no UEFI/EFI mode. BIOS is set to VT off normally. SLi is always on. onboard nVidia card is only used for installation as the other cards are faster and let me use CUDA OpenCL.

    • Hi, i tried to install high sierra on my hp computer, i created the partition on windows, i copied the sata-100-unssuported.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other but my intel SSD does not show up at the disk utility at all, my bios does not have options to change sata to ahci or any other option, and i read something about mbr patch which i dowloaded but there is no guide on what to do with it, any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
    • i tried this in last hours, but nothing. i tried to boot on an acer aspire (specs are almost the same) and it boots (stuck on logo but boot), i guess that problem is mine laptop?
    • Hi!
      As a first try with hackintosh I succesuffy installed High Sierra on a Dell PowerEdge T20. It works fine, but as I start scrolling in a web-browser the screen starts flickering. It only recognises my screen as a secondary projector, and can't change resolution from 1920x1080.
      How do I fix this?
    • I've downloaded the nvidia webdrivers but obviously nv_disable=1 disables them. I've tried booting with nv_drv=1 among other boot flags and the boot always hangs at the bluetoothhci starts completes line. Gfx is gfx 750ti cpu is amd phenom ii x4 965 deneb black edition. Motherboard is m4a88t -v evo/usb3 Couldn't edit to add this info, I installed using niresh mav 10.9 using boot flags dart=0 npci=0×2000 and nv_disable=1 as well as /amd64. I've successfully update to 10.9.5
    • To me it sounds as if he/she installed MacOS on their PC without understanding what they are doing, since they are asking to return to Windows 10.   My thought was, to allow them to start over with the installation, but with help from the thread.
