Alienware m14x (possibly others) Install Guide (without NV optimus) [WIP]

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This guide will include flashing a custom bios, I take no responsibility for any damage done because of a bad flash. If you are uncomfortable flashing a Bios please do not follow this guide.

 

There will be three parts for this guide, first will be flashing the unlocked BIos to allow single GPU operation. The other two are for configuring the Bios and intalling OS X one for using only the nVidia GPU and one for using the Intel GPU.

 

I take no credit for the first part, credit goes to user svl7 on Techinferno, therefore I will be linking to the forum post.

 

To flash the custom Bios, go to http://forum.techinf...os-a07-a08.html. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS.

(Also safety first, never flash Bios on battery, use AC power)

 

In case Bios recovery is neccesary: http://forum.techinf...y-possible.html (follow guide in post #2, but rename file PALB064.fd)

 

Install guides coming soon, for now this will be for those who already know what to do from here.

This has been scrapped due to the limitation in the configuration on the M14x. This method would be possible on the m15x or higher models though, however i do not have one, so i will not be able to continue this. The topic can be left for others to use. Sorry if i got anybodies hopes up, i'm just as disappointed as you.
