  1. Alienware 17 r5 Tutorial

    Hey all, thank you for all the thanks and while I do deserver some of it, I really did nothing much. I'm no dev, used a lot of google and had a lot of help from my buddy. As for the hdmi, it doesn't bother me to plug into an external monitor on boot. What really bugs me is the no Audio over the hdmi. Sorry for the lack of responses in the thread, started a new job and have very little time. To be honest, this is a hobby at best. I'll install OSX and play around with it every couple of months or so. As far as updating, I really have no clue. I would rather have everything working perfectly on 10.9 before worrying about 10.9.4. I will add that I have the 120Hz screen as well (while it's nice to have the extra umpphhh in the screen, Dell really screwed us in the implementation. No graphics switching and it's a pain in the arse for the most basic things).

    Nope doesn't work, tried that already...... It is a real shame because it's really the only thing that is stopping me from using OSX full time.....
  3. Alienware 17 r5 Tutorial

    Hey All, My config: Alienware 17 i7 4800qm 780m GTX 16 GB Ram BCM43xx Wifi Killer e2200 Network Card Worked with a friend of mine and got my Alienware up and running with Niresh 10.9 almost perfectly so I thought I would share the tut we have: 1. Obviously get Niresh 10.9 dmg and use your favorite method to get it on USB 2. In the Bios, Legacy boot must be enabled 3. Boot from the USB drive 4. At boot type "xpcm-free -v" without quotes and press Enter 5. Click on the HDD you are going to install OSX on and click Customize (you may have to format the hdd with disk utilities first. I would recommend making 2 partitions, 1 main and one you can make a backup on) 6. Uncheck "Install Network Drivers (kexts)" 7. Click arrow "Graphics" > uncheck GraphicsEnabler=Yes and check Backup Graphics Kexts 8. Click arrow "FakeSMC and Plugins" > Arros "FakeSMC Plugins" Check CPU, LPC and GPU Sensors 9. Click Arros "Laptop Drivers" Check "Enable Battery Percentage" 10. Clike OK then Install. 11. While it's installing, download these files and put them on a usb: 12. Go through the process, when it reboots don't boot from USB and then go through the setup, create profile, etc. 13. Once into OSX, it is still not done, Let the Niresh installer do it's thing and repair the permissions (may take a little while) 14. After it is all done, reboot 15. When you get back into OSX, copy all of the texts from the file you downloaded onto the desktop and then run kextbeast to install them 16. Reboot 17. Install the Webdriver File (this is the Nvidia OSX drivers) and reboot 18. This time, on boot, you MUST have your laptop plugged into an external display via hdmi otherwise you will just get a black screen. Once you are back into OSX, you can unplug from the external monitor and just use your laptop display. That is it, you now have an (almost) fully functional hackintosh with working wifi, ethernet and sound via speakers. 2 bugs that I have never worked out is that I cannot get Audio over hdmi and that on boot you need to be plugged into an external monitor or you will just get a black screen on your laptop monitor. I cannot take much credit for this other than sharing. My buddy had a youtube vid showcasing this and it has been taken down and I haven't talked to him for months so I don't want to mention him by name but he deserves the biggest majority of the credit. I can't remember where I got the BCM kext or I would link to it. If it is yours, or you know who created it, please let me know and I'll credit it here. The Killer E2200 kext, I got from gamester3333 over on TonyMac--thank you sir! If anyone has any input on the 2 remaining bugs I have, I would greatly appreciate your assistance! If this is in the wrong section mods, please move it!

  5. No Sound HDMI Niresh Mavericks 10.9

    So nothing I do will get this to work, figured out that it wasn't the frame buffer that was making the HDMI visible in sound devices, it was the VoodooHDA kext I installed. I did edit that kext with my deviceid for my card but still no go. @Niresh @KasiNB @Deepak can someone please help me? I've attached the info.txt file from an report. I've also attached the System Info app information in case it's more Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide!!!

I'm so close I can taste it

    Hey all, No matter what I try, I cannot get sound on my hdmi port on my 6850. Hopefully someone can help me out as The system works beautifully besides. Here is my Everest Ultimate report from the windows side:
