    Alienware 15 R3 on OS X 10.12.6

    Hey there, I have an Alienware 15r3. Similar Specs. 7700HQ, GTX 1070, 1080p Gsync 60hz panel. This clover file I'm not able to get Nvidia Hardware acceleration, wifi or ethernet to work for some odd reason. I found a clover file posted earlier here that uses an imac smbios. I got wifi/ethernet/nvidia graphics working but no backlight control or sound. Looking for a clover folder I could use to get everything working! Thanks a lot!
  2. I appreciate the tip. I added a 10 sec delay. So here's the weird issue now. - My 4TB Lacie Raid would show up in disk util in terminal and in clover configurator but I cant mount it. - When I try to mount it via terminal it times out. I also found that actually trying to load the disk utlitiy app it would get stuck in loading disk. Any tips to figure this out? It's definitely an oddball. EDIT: Going through the pages in this thread Johnny4911 stating to disable the 2 pre-boot options in the bios and that did the trick! Now my Lacie 4TB shows up all the time now! I'm so glad!
  3. Just want to report I updated to 10.12.6 with no issues I do however have this weird quirk with thunderbolt 3. I have a Lacie Thunderbolt 2 drive I use with the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter. It seems to work randomly whenever it feels like. Fully shutting down the computer and booting it would appear maybe 1/20 times. System information shows that in the thunderbolt tab it states no drivers are loaded. Any tips guys?
  4. Looks like a new bios is out. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/drivers/driversdetails?c=us&l=en&s=gen&driverid=XK2Y9 Fixes & Enhancements1. Fixed a potential security issue with Bootguard code integrity chaining enforcement". 2. Fixed a potential security issue with the Support Assist PreBoot feature 3. Updated processor microcode 4. Update Computrace 957 5. Update PD firmware Is it safe to upgrade or no?
  5. I just bought a DW1560 on eBay. I don't feel too entirely comfortable disassembling the display to install the third antenna. Hopfully that'll fix the spotty wifi issue.
  6. Just want to chime in here saying everything is working using your guide Aside from using the iGPU due to nvidia optimus this is a great Mac Backup to my 2016 15" Touchbar MacBook Pro. I also got it to dual boot Windows 10 / OSX Flawlessly. I would say the only odd issue is the wifi. I got the Dell 1850 card and transfers are sometimes super slow but it shows connected. I'm guessing this is for not installing the 3rd antenna array?
  7. Will you be updating your guide or clover folder for the fixes you and KNNSpeed posted?
  8. If the new pascal drivers load and Sierra detects it couldn't this GPU be utilized in pro apps like FCPX, Premiere? I dont mind using the iGPU if the DGPU gets used in FCPX which would be my primary use of Sierra.
  9. I was reading somewhere I have to edit my EFI strings even after the NVinstallers? Why would I have to if the drivers area already built into the installers? Anyone?....as so many active users in this forum noone replies
  10. another update: I'm collecting all the posts I find with users http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=765130 - user with the exact same issue as mine. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=765535 - same issue different user. However no clear answers on resolution. I'll keep researching and tests when I get home from work. I will post photos of my logs and see if anyone can help. Thanks everyone.
  11. Update: I installed leo4allv3 - I get the same thing. I hear the leopard welcome sounds but no screen. I installed the correct kexts on the NVinstalled, made sure. I have an 8800gts 640mb. I still dont get any screen but again, going to safe mode I was able to boot natively 1920x1200 I reformatted again. Installed 10.5.2 kalyway without ANYTHING. Manually reinstalled the drivers and I was able to get everything in 1024x768 but the time I installed NVinstaller blank screen. Reformatted again, tried with the ver 3.0 and 2.0 with punk 92's installed. Blank screen I did it for leo4all same damn thing. I'm really at my ends here. All the components are working since on my other HD I have vista 64 installed and definitely everything is working 100% http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=69132 - This is basically the same motherboard but I'm still stuck where i install the g80 drivers.
  12. hi everyone, My bad axe 2 board went south and I purchased a P5K deluxe board it's awesome! However, for the past 2 days I'm having such a hard time to get this board to boot normally. Here is my specs P5K Deluxe (bios settings s-ata as AHCI, disable j-micro controller, No overclock) Q6600 8800GTS 640mb 4gb ram Kalyway 10.5.2 install DVD -OSX installation will comeplete and go through fine. However when I boot up the apple logo appears then a blank screen pulls up. There's a signal I know. I did swap the DVI switches around but same thing. - Booting through -x and EVERYTHING works. It detected my marvell ethernet, my realtek ethernet, sound and even my graphics! It would load 1920x1200 but system profiler shows no CI/QE. - I tried the vanilla kernel and the other kernals on the kalyway 10.5.2 but I would always hit this brick wall. - I even installed everything with no drivers and it would boot and everything would work until I used the NVinstaller or the Punk92's installer. I would end up with a blank black screen. I think everything works but the gfx card giving me a headache. I was reading on forums to do an NVinject but I still get the blank screen. I dual boot to XP to play games and this system was working 100% when I was running with my bad axe 2.
  13. I'm wondering about this too. I tried to load put my 7900gtx (flashed to quadro + my 8800gts 640mb) The OSX screen always goes on 8800gts load screen not the 7900gtx. But when I put my 7900gtx it boots into osx all fine and dandy. I'll try to do a fresh install and see I have heard rumors of people getting this sort of config working....but we should really get a thread going on this for the people that has it working and the steps they got it to work. The 8800gts driver is not going to come for awhile - so we might as well slap a low/mediocre card for OSX so that way we can get native QE/CI.
  14. Anyone getting stability problems? I keep having applications crashing or I get the shutdown screen at times just doing occasional web browsing or watching a movie. I followed this guide step by step except I check the nVidia ktexts with th JAS 10 so I can get the native QE 1920x1200 other than that everything is the same....
