Hi everybody, i have a Samsung np500p4c-t03cl laptop, and after a lot of problems, i finally can install OS X in my pc using Niresh Mavericks DVD.


but, so as i said before, i've got some troubles with my installation, caused by hardware i think.


my laptop specs are:


Intel® Core™ i5 3210M (2.50 GHz, 3 MB, caché L3), Intel HM76

NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 650M gDDR3 1 GB // Intel HD 4000

DDR3 de 8 GB a 1,600 MHz (4 GB x 2), 2 SODIMM

S-ATAII de 1 TB (5,400 RPM)

Wifi Qualcom Atheros AR9485WB-EG

Eth Realtek PCIe GBE

Realtek audio card


troubles are:


-for some reason osx only boot with the flags PCIRootUID=1 -x -v, is that "normal"?

if i dont use -x flag the mic start to capture audio and the speakers got noise (i read in bootloading some of voodooHDA failed or something like that)


-without flag -x got troubles with the Win8 partition


-doesnt recognize usb devices (usb mouse is what only works) with this i cant run #####


-and wifi, but I found out that my network card is not supported yet


-i can boot osx only using the niresh dvd, otherwise boots win8 automatically


thanks in advance, ive googled a lot to find some responses, but no success.

Hi and Welcome.


1º We don't give support for Distros, see the link about this in my signature.

2º The GT 650M doesn't work in OS X, only HD 4000. For make this, try disable in your BIOS.
