  1. Dell XPS 8700 haswell system - 10.9 Mavericks

    So i figured it out. It was the kext for my usb wireless adapter that was preventing out from shutting down. As far as tuning the 4600, i actually got my gt635 to work. Now to figure out the wireless adapter problem. Its 8188cus chipset. Could only find a 10.8 kext right from realtek. But it prevents shutdown.

    Hey guys, So i just recieved my XPS 8700 i7 8gb ram Nvidia n635m I tried to install Niresh Mavericks 10.9 with the kernel you recommended. I am able to to get to the install screen without any boot flags. The install finishes just fine. Although when i reboot after install it flashes the White apple screen for a split second and then reboots. I have tried multiple boot flag variations with no luck. Im just curious what distro/version of mavericks you are using. Any help would be great! thanks in advance. Edit: So i was successful get it up running in the wee hours of the night. Turned out to have some boot flags i didnt need, and i had back up all graphic kext. now hoe do i get my video card going full?
