    Dell XPS 12 (9Q33) OS X Mavericks Instillation


    Hello all. I am trying to get OS X Mavericks to install on my Dell XPS 12 (9Q33). As of right now I get to the gray screen with the Apple logo but no spinning circle under it. Here is a link to the laptop specs:

    http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-12-9q33...n&s=dhs&~ck=mn

    Intel i5-4200u
    Intel HD 4400
    Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 + Bluetooth 4.0

    I have built one machine prior to this so I am kind of familiar with the process of installing the OS, granted it was a desktop build with a i7-3770k and a Gigabyte board so there was not much for me to do to get it to work.

    I am not concerned with the wireless at this point since I know from searching around that the Intel wireless chips are not supported.

    Any help would be nice.

    Thank you.

    *UPDATE 2013-12-14*
    I am pretty happy with things so far. My biggest thing I want to get working is the power management. I would like things to not be running full throttle all of the time.

    Working
    Audio - Using SoundBlaster X-Fi USB adapter
    Battery Status - Installed ACPI Batter Driver and it popped right up (should have done this first didn't have to patch anything after all)
    Intel HD Graphics 4400 - QE/CI appear to be working perfectly

    Semi-Working
    Trackpad - no three finger scrolling
    Bluetooth - Sometimes there, sometimes not

    Not Working
    Mac App Store - Unable to log in
    Power Management - CPU still running at full turbo boost, fans always on
    Built-in WiFi - Intel Based
    Built-in Audio - Realtek ALC668 (looks like there are other people trying to get it to work but no luck yet)
    Touchscreen - have not even attempted to get working yet. I consider getting this to work a bonus

    *UPDATE 2013-12-10*

    After messing around and following some tips from this thread I have a functional system. I will update with the links i used to download stuff to get it working soon. I just wanted to give a quick update before leaving the house today.

    Working
    Boots into OS X without using safe mode
    1920x1080 resolution (no glitches anymore. used recommendation to set resolution in enoch)
    Wireless - Tenda W311M working
    Trackpad - used voodooPS2 found on another site. two finger scrolling works great. Have not messed with 3 finger functions yet

    Semi Working:
    Bluetooth - sometimes it is there and sometimes it isnt.

    Not working:
    Built-in Wireless - Its an intel chipset so i know it wont work anyway. Going to try a small USB adapter
    Power Management - Fans always seem on and cannot view battery info in tool bar
    Audio
    Touchscreen
    Correct CPU not listed in about this mac.
    Correct ram spec not listed in about this mac.

    Boot "-v" to diagnose. Likely it is a graphics issue. What value for ig-platform-id are you using?

    Try also booting with "IGPEnabler=No -x -v"

    @xp1700
    Does your touch screen work like in the Win8? I have tried it and I find that if I want to slide the pages like in windows, it only can select words in Word 2011 or Safari no matter how I set it. If it can make my touch screen to work like in windows or even better, I will buy it.
    Can you share your boot loader? As exchange, I share my CLOVER 2298 first.

    @donradii
    You can try my CLOVER 1902.
    Does your Synaptics touchpad in 9Q33 move quickly in Win8.1? Mine Cypress touchpad in 9Q23 is slow even I set its speed to the most fast.

    Hi Guys,

    Could someone give a brief list of things to do to get Mavericks installed properly? I have tried the Unibeast route but can only boot OSX with -x.

    Thanks!

    Edit: I have the XPS 12 as well of course.

    I only get a black screen when I try to boot using UEFI and Clover r2330.

    Try my clover 1902 on the 6th floor. Clover is not the newer, the better thing.
