To anyone that may be able to help,

I successfully "installed" OS X 10.8.2 on an Alienware M14x R1 using a distro (I have a legal copy, though). However, when I attempt to boot, the intro fails to start, and the cursor doesn't appear. In Verbose, everything seems to boot properly, but the hard drive indicator continues to light up even though the screen fails to change.

So, in other words, I believe I'm not getting any video output, even though the Operating System is already running.

My specifications:
Intel Core i5-2410M 2.30 GHz
Intel HD Graphics 3000/nVidia GTX 555m
Seagate Momentus 750GB HHD
Bios version A08
SATA mode is AHCI
Speedstep/Virtualization are ON
NVINIT and Inject are installed

Things I've tried:
-v
-f
-x
npci=0x3000
GraphicsEnabler=no

There isn't anything in particular to screencap. The last thing that shows is Natit successfully "initializing" the 555m card I have. That pretty much takes up the screen.

I cannot disable the 555m in the bios, there's no option to do so. I will, however, try disabling virtualization when i get the chance, even though in my experience with different machines and hackintosh disabling virtualization didn't help with other problems.

try removing all ge-foorce related drivers. then, you can at least boot with 1024x768 and patch your dsdt to disable the 555m.

Alright, I've reinstalled without selecting ANY nvidia drivers. I've tried with both virtualization and without, but the same problem occurs (obviously without the Nvidia initialization, of course). Any other suggestions?

no you have to delete the built-in kexts. boot with -s and mount the hd. type in cd /System/Library/Extensions/ then hit enter then type ls then press enter then use rm -rf "the name of the kext".kext and FYI, there will be more than i GeForce related kext. delete ALL of them.

Alright, I've done so, and I removed four or so Kexts. However, the same issue still occurs unfortunately.

I didn't have one. I would have deleted it too, if it existed though, cause I knew it was an nVidia kext.

That is everything in /S/L/E

I don't have an /E/E folder.  There's stuff in /E, but I don't believe it's relevant.

I deleted any remaining ones, but the problem STILL exists. I'm going to check my boot.plist for a sec, see if there's something in there.

Any other suggestions in the meantime?

 

EDIT: I found that EthernetBuiltIn is enabled and the streamlined kernel flags are npci=0x2000 and darkwake=0.  Should I change one of these?  (Preferably NOT the ethernet, cause that's what helps the app store and facetime work.  Provided it even works in the first place.)

Any other suggestions?  I still haven't managed to get to the setup screen, and I don't have any more NVidia kexts in my extensions folder.  I'm considering trying a Mavericks install, but I'm close to sure that it'll have the same problem in the end.

Would a moderator please close this thread?

I still have not managed to fix the problem. Even though I've done everything to make the the installation rely on only one graphics card, the lack of a welcome screen continues to occur. I'm going to write this off as a lost cause since it seems no one that has had this problem has managed to fix it. Thank you for your time, whoever tried to help.

I've been able to get it to boot with these flags at boot "PCIRootUID=0 mamem=4096 GraphicsEnabler=0" I have Mavericks installed, but now i'm kinda stuck with the rest. Also you need to delete the kexts as others have said.

Since you've installed Mavericks, would you mind telling me what install method you used (provided you're allowed to)?
