I don't have a DSDT at this point... :) It's the standard Unibeast install USB. I added the HD3000 high resolution aml file based on your guide.

I can fix things once I get the damn thing installed, but I can't get to the installer!

I'm suggesting you extract DSDT via Linux, patch it on a Mac, then place it on the Unibeast USB. Alternately you could delete the Intel kexts for the install. Save a backup for later as you will have to put them back. I prefer to do th former.

Help me understand this as I'm still a bit green on DSDTs etc.

My understanding was that Unibeast doesn't use a DSDT as such, and the DSDT comes into play, AFTER you have installed OSX, with Multibeast? I can try and extract a DSDT using Linux or AIDA64 on Windows. It'll be a bit of trail and error I must admit.

DSDT can be placed in /extra on the Unibeast USB.

Extracted the native DSDT using Windows, patched it with the HD 3000 high resolution patch and the installer came up!

Rehabman - You rock dude.

Installing it as speak, we'll see how far we go.

Audio: Best result with patched AppleHDA. Google 'patch AppleHDA guide'. Search for suitable AppleHDA or patch it yourself. Apply appropriate DSDT patches.

Which trackpad is in your laptop?

Hi, any chance I this method can be used on dell m6600 with amd m8900 graphics ?
Have tried several times over the last year to get mavericks installed but always results in black screen on laptop .
My specs -
dell m6600
i7 2920xm
8gb ram 1600 MHz
amd m8900 2gb graphics ( no optimus / no switchable graphics in bios )
17.3 '' screen 1600x900 resolution

I'm quite willing to use intel hd only for osx if that's an option ,
as I'll dual boot for amd graphics in windows.

Any help much appreciated , can upload radeon bios output or anything else if required?

Thanks ,Úll Mac
