Please help me configure my new Alienware M17x R3 to run OSX86 :)
Hey guys, I'm ordering an Alienware M17x laptop today or tomorrow. My plan is to dual boot it with Windows 7 Home Premium and OSX. I have had some experience installing OSX on a Dell inspiron 6400 laptop, I ran into many problems and it took me 2 weeks just to get the install working. after that I ran into a million other problems so I gave up because it just looked like a lot of my hardware was incompatible.
This time around I want to do it right by making sure all the components inside my M17x will be compatible for a 100% working dual boot! below are specs that I want... please let me know if i will run into any problems with this hardware configuration.
Intel Core i7 2630QM 2.0GHz (2.8GHz Turbo Mode, 6MB Cache)
17.3-inch WideFHD 1920 x 1080 120Hz WLED w/3D Bundle
8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1333MHz (4DIMMS)
1.5TB Raid 0 (2x 750GB 7,200RPM)
1.5GB GDDR5 Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M
Slot-Loading Dual Layer Blu-ray Reader (BR-ROM, DVD+-RW, CD-RW)
Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 6300 a/g/n 3x3 MIMO Technology
Internal High-Definition 5.1 Surround Sound Audio
my biggest concerns are the video card not being compatible (main problem I had last time with the insperion). as well as the wireless card, read some where that there is a good chance it wont work, I am willing to downgrade it though.
I should also mention that I want to partition the first hard drive in half and install the 2 operating systems on each partition. Then format the second hard drive as fat32 so both OS's can read and wright to it.
