Skritch,

I have the Dell XPS 8500 with the nVidia 640 card. I can get it to boot from the USB, and from the hard drive if I use the -x parameter ("safe mode", no device drivers) but that's it.

Have you had success? What Multibeast parameters?

Thanks

I am running into the same issue. When I run in verbose mode I get an error loading:
com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (214.0)[C154A79F-841E-39ED-A28D-CD20975E352D]

I am trying to figure how to address the issue -- but I am pretty new to Hackintosh- ing. If I find anything that can help I will post it. Also -- if anyone else has some pointers please feel free to post them

Thanks

I watched the video and I am still unclear. The only thing of note that he appears to have done is run the AppleACPIplatform.kext with kext utility. I am unclear what this process does. From reading the forums I have found posts where people copy their kext from a previous version of OSX and use the kext utility to re-install it once they have updated their system -- but that does not seem to be what is happening in the video. Is there a version of AppleACPIplatform.kext that I need to get? Do I need a different version of AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement?

Any information you provide will be helpful. Thanks

Does anyone know how to fix sleeping/waking up with the xps 8500?

Im currently using an ATI6770 video card
and the CPU is an i3 3210 (hd2500, not hd 4000)
This is with 10.8.5

using my hack, multi beast, and kext utility to enable the 6770.

still havnt gotten hd2500 working correctly, as the dell motherboard doesnt seem to allow me to adjust the amount of memory allocated to the onboard video... if anyone has any tips on getting this to work, as i would much prefer to use airplay vs airparrot, it would be much appreciated.

I am completely new to the hackintosh world. I have done some research and it turns out my computer is pretty compatible. I have the xps 8500 with ivy bridge i5 3450. geforce gtx 650 graphics and the WDN4800 Wifi Card. One of my friends had installed it for me once but i've since switched back to windows. now i want to dual boot. First question. Has anyone gotten the 10.8.5 install working properly? if so what did you check in unibeast / multibeast? Second question.. Has anyone gotten sleep to work properly? if so, how and what kexts did you use?

I installed Mavericks on a New SSD. Everything went flawlessy. I have the GT 640 graphics card in my XPS 8500.
Had to use "-x" flag while booting using USB(while booting installer and also the first boot before running Multibeast).
Post install in Multibeast I had to choose the following after choosing DSDT Free in Quick Start.

1. Drivers -> Audio -> Without DSDT -> ALC887/888b Current v100302
2. Drivers -> Disk -> 3rd Party SATA (From DSDT Free in Quick Start)
3. Drivers -> Disk -> TRIM Enabler -> 10.9.0 TRIM Patch
4. Drivers -> Misc -> FakeSMC v5.3.820 (From DSDT Free in Quick Start)
5. Drivers -> Network -> Realtek - Lnx2Mac's RealtekRTL81xx v0.0.90
6. Drivers -> System -> AppleACPIPlatform Rollback -> 10.8.1 Rollback
7 Drivers -> System -> Patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement -> AppleRTC Patch for CMOS Reset (From DSDT Free in Quick Start)
8. Bootloaders -> Chimera v2.2.1 (From DSDT Free in Quick Start)
9. Customize -> Boot Options -> Basic Boot Options (From DSDT Free in Quick Start)
10. Customize -> Boot Options -> Generate CPU States (From DSDT Free in Quick Start)
11. Customize -> Boot Options -> Hibernate Mode - Desktop (From DSDT Free in Quick Start)
12. Customize -> Boot Options -> Use KernelCache (From DSDT Free in Quick Start)
13. Customize -> System Definition -> iMac -> iMac 13,1 (Changed from Mac Pro 3,1)
14. Customize -> Themes -> tonymacx86 Black(From DSDT Free in Quick Start)

To Make iMessages work I had install the FileNVRAM.dylib
