thinking out loud has anyone ever tried running Mac OS X on an R3? I bet drivers will be a pain to find. Also I'll put some links as i research this Hackintosh :cool: -MVLS Crownz

Whats up :cool:

There are 2 ways to get Mac OS X running on your Alienware

EASY (VIRTUALIZATION) :

You can virtualize it using VMWare 9 and some Patches that allow you to install MAC OS X
Some people already have pre loaded OS images ready, you just need to download them, install VMware 9, apply patches, power on the virtual machine image.

All the drivers are virtualized through VMware

For anyone who wants to try this... start here. http://mahmood1.com/MacOSX_Windows_Virtualization.php
I know this guy from some iPhone jailbreaking forums, all his stuff is clean cracks (no viruses,adware,spyware...etc)


HARD (HACKINTOSH):

Ive done this method and trust me if you dont know alot about bootloaders,editing DSDT files,extracting SSDT files from your bios, or flashing an unlocked BIOS. Then i highly recommend you go the virtualization route.
To get to mountain lion you have to start at Snow Leopard and work your way up through a ton of driver modifications, DSDT patches and OS updates.

Anyone interested can start here by trying to get snow leopard running off your systems hardware here....

NOTE: If you have a 3D screen, dont even attempt this, you will brick your Alienware and have to blind flash your bios to get it going again.

Good luck :cool:
