Hello world,
here another noob that's trying to help some random strangers =)

I just menage to install maverick on my asus ux32vd ultrabook.

Here the guide http://www.tonymacx86.com/374-unibeast-install-os-x-mavericks-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html.

After some try the only way that i found to make the installation start is to remove some kext related to the video (AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* ATI* GeForce* NVDA*): i'm realy new to this kind of stuff, so i don't know if it's ok what i did, btw, now it's booting.

So, from the beginning, the BIOS (press ESC on startup, "enter setup"):

advanced-> VT-d [disabled].
advanced-> USB Configuration -> Legacy USB [auto], XHCI pre-boot [enabled]

The other stuff should be ok by default.
Now reboot, press esc on startup, select your usb from the menù, boot with -s and remove the kext as i said few row ago. I refered to http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-...iobluetoothhcicontroller-start-completed.html.

Now by now, the major issue that i've have is about the bootloader: my bios doesn't recognize anymore my internal 24gb issd as bootable, and i'm forced to boot by the unibeast pendrive. Any kind of help is appreciated. Ask my anything.

p.s: if i kill the grammar few times, i'm sorry
p.p.s: if i'm in the wrong section of the forum, i'm sorry.

Hello world,

Now by now, the major issue that i've have is about the bootloader: my bios doesn't recognize anymore my internal 24gb issd as bootable, and i'm forced to boot by the unibeast pendrive.
i solve this by installing the Os in a mbr partitioned drive.

Ciao Dule2303,

In order
WiFi: No (intel centrino 6235 is unsupported) (but you can arrange something with the usbToEthernet adapter =)! )
NVidia:No. Not at all; it does not even boot with the nvidia kext in extensions.
Backlight: Yes

Optimus is not supported on OS X and most likely never will be.
If you need nVidia graphics for OS X then you should look at a MBP, unless you seem to find a laptop that has a dedicated nVidia card. In some cases you can find one that will work when you inject properties.

I have a little question...
I have actually Windows 7 on my asus ux32vd dual boot with debian 7.
My bootloader (where I choose between win7/debian7 is something custom (refind) that scan OS on your system then show what you can boot.

If I install mavericks I'll lose win7? debian7?
Have I to partition before installing to avoid that?

I have managed to install on my eee pc 900 snow leopard but I didn't care about the system I had and isn't the same with my ux32vd...

Thanks for your answers (sorry for my english, kinda bad)
