Dell XPS 14 Ultrabook

Hi all,

 

I've been trying to install OS X ML on a Dell XPS 14 Ultrabook with almost no luck so far, though the XPS 14 Ultrabook is almost identical to Mac Book Pro in terms of hardware. In theory a plain vanilla installation (myHack) should work out of the box, but again, no luck. Is there an EDP and/or a bootpack for that XPS model or any other way to get OS X ML working on that laptop. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Best regards,

Djuby

Hi, make a list of your hardware specs to start with so that we can evaluate the potentials for OS X installation. There is no specific bootpack for that laptop at the moment, but that's something than can be worked on of course.

How far do you get when you boot off the USB key?

With -v -f flags it gets stuck on "Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,2)]/System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext/Contents/Info.plist] 14352 bytes."
