Ive been trying to get my webdrivers on my r6 to enable and I've been trying everything but not go has anyone found out how?
Back on my 1st post here, I wrote:Well when i install the macos sierra 10.12.3 it works fine but no the webdrivers so i try to put 12.6 and it just wont boot goes str8 to panic been looking around but no awnser that i need i have a drifrent setup than your just the cpu and graphis card
Did you ever get your R6 working? Mine freezes on bar where you see Apple loading halfway through every time.Thanks for the quick reply!
Yep, I have the 1080. CPU is i7 7700k - in fact I think that the system's exactly the same as yours (in fact your post was what inspired me to try this).
Your config.plist would be much appreciated, thank you.
Great article, were you able to get hardware acceleration working?This is more of a PSA than a review as I don't have the time to do a full write-up in the user builds section.
In short, an i7-7700K (factory water-cooled and OC Lvl2 @ 4.7Ghz) Alienware Aurora R6 was VERY EASY to setup and get everything working. I'm no Pro, and it took a few hours for me. Someone who knows what they are doing could probably do it in a hour or two.
My setup is an Aurora R6, Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake CPU, 16GB DDR4 RAM, SATA SSD (will be trying NVMe soon), nVidia 1080 8GB video card. The system has built-in USB 3.0 AND USB 3.1, both of which are found automatically using Unibeast for setup.
Also working immediately was the built-in gigabit Ethernet, bluetooth, and the Intel 630 video (but without acceleration). Ran Multibeast but chose only basic options.
Audio turned out to work with the ALC898 codec (line out AND digital optical out). App Store and iTunes works, as does Messages. Sleep/wake even works without me having to do anything to make it work! Had a problem with GPUSensors causing a panic at boot with the nVidia 1080 so I removed the kext and now it boots fine.
All-in-all, very easy. It's like the hardware was put together to work as a hack!
