Asus K55VM - i7 3610QM

Hey there.


I want to install Mac OS on my new laptop I bought a month ago. So I will give you most of its specs to tell me if it will work, or not.


I'll first mention that I work as a computer technician and I am a software developer (dot net), and also a frond+back end developer,

so I can insure you I'll understand at least most of the things you'll say!


So anyway, my laptop model is Asus K55vm with Intel i7 3610QM (IvyBridge)

Here are some screenshots of its specifications:







My graphic cards are:

1. the basic Intel Graphics 4000 (2 Gb)

2. Nvidia GeForce 630M (2 Gb)



I read the "HELP I'M A NOOB!" (lol) thread, so I'am aware of the minimum SSE requirement, but base on its specs I have it.


One very important thing - All these Mac versions ...... I'm so confused.

I don't know what to install - can you help me decide, based on my pc specs?


Thanks in advance.


Best Regards

I'll be starting a similar project on a new asus tomorrow. I have already done this on 1 asus but could not get wireless working due to the unsupported network card. Keep in contact if you would like me to post my progress.


I have the same laptop. Can you guide us to get a working installation of ML??

Hello guys, finally I managed to install ML on my laptop. I have working almost all: bual boot win7 + ML, trackpad and keyboard, ethernet, webcam, sound, intel HD4000...


Now I only have two problems:


- Wifi: I´ve tested a lot of kext without success -> Atheros AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter

- USB: When I connect something to the USB ports (2.0 and 3.0) system hangs I have to reboot the computer.


Any help to finish my installation???
