I'm trying to install ML (10.8) on my beautiful new samsung series 9 (np900x4c-a01us). This thing is sweet; 8GB, i5-3317U (Ivy), USB3.0, 128GBssd, **three pounds**, **15 inch screen**
Specifically, the chipset is Intel 7 Series / C216 chipset, with HD4000
I went with the tonymacx86 ###### solution, because even though I got nawcom's snow leopard solution to work, I had immense problems with functionality-- no sound, ethernet, etc. and kext installation was becoming a nightmare, and none of the others (kakewalk, iAtkos) worked.
For those who care, in order to install ML with the ###### solution, you must first install the newest BIOS using the samsung tool from their downloads page. Make the relevant bios boot-order and S3 changes, and voila! Installs.
On the first boot after install, sound, touchpad, and ethernet all work!! GLORIOUS!
After that, no such luck... I managed to patch the ethernet and sound with lnx2Mac's realtek 81xx and an older VoodooHDA, respectively. Touchpad still a no-go, but I haven't actually tried yet because bluetooth seems to work out-of-the-box and I have a sweet wireless mouse/keyboard. Wi-fi is a bust; centrino advanced-N isn't going to be working soon at all (Correct me if I'm wrong on that)
Okay, so the major issue: NO QE/CI support.
With the latest chimera installed, it DOES actually load the drivers. However, my LCD on the laptop is dark, and the external HDMI port puts out *extremely* garbled display. GraphicsEnabler=No gets me back to my LCD with no acceleration.
I read up on the issue in this thread but I'm not sure what to make of it; I've never dealt with a DSDT before and the proprietary phoenix/samsung BIOS probably won't play nice....
Does anyone have some tips on how to get past this? I'm not completely inexperienced here but I don't know much about EFI strings and DSDT even though I know in theory how they work.
