:excl: Before we start-

     Set BIOS to Default, then go back and change Sata Operation to AHCI and Enable Optimus in Video


Let's get started...

I use the myhack method for this build, so follow instructions to build your USB installer, set BIOS settings and run the OSX Installation from here http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/

  1. After creating your USB installer, run myHack again
  2. Select Install Extra and point to the Extra folder attached Extra.zip
  3. Boot up system with USB installer disk with the -v switch (use USB 2.0 port on the left or the eSata port, USB 3.0 ports don't always work)
  4. Format the HDD per instruction from myHack (GPT and Journaled)
  5. Select "Use my Own" when prompt and point to the Extra folder in the root of the USB installer drive
  6. Delete the (3) files when prompted
  7. System will automatically restart when finish. Remove the USB installer drive
  8. Complete the Installation ( if you get Invalid Partition Table during boot - just hit enter to continue)
  9. After logging on: in System Preferences
    •    Enable Clicking for Trackpad

    •    Allow apps downloaded from: Anywhere for Security & Privacy

    •    Launch myHack, Install Chameleon to fix the "Invalid Partition Table" error


  :excl: Notes

  • Replace SSDT in Extra if you have an i7-3740QM zip.gif  SSDT_i7-3740QM.zip   4.8KB   105 downloads
  • Make sure BIOS is at A13, Optimus disables after reboot if BIOS is at A12
  • Artifacts occur if Optimus is enabled and BIOS is higher than A13






  • If you encounter error above when playing a DVD movie the first time,

         replace DVDPlayback.FrameWork

         in System/Library/Frameworks. Don't forget to backup first.
