I'm new to this forum and I'm trying to install a Niresh Maverick 10.9 using a DVD on an Alienware M17x r5.
These are the specs of my laptop

Nvidia Optimus based machine and i cannot disable nor force it to use one graphic processor
THese are my bios settings for the installation
Trying to boot the installation normally, I get it rebooting always after the apple logo.
Booting using: -x -v gives the same problem.
Booting using: amd64 -v gives me this error: BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directory
Booting using: amd64 -vx still give the same error
If i use an external HDMI monitor; it get stuck immediately after choosing to boot DVD.
I made sure every devices is unplugged from the laptop but still no luck.
