I am looking for some help or a Tutorial for installing Maverics on a Dell M6500.

Dell Precision M6500

i7 M620 @ 2.67Ghz

8Gig of RAM

Nivdia Quadro FX 2800M @ 1440x900

128Gig SanDisk SSD

BIOS Rev A04

IDT 92HD81 Audio

Broadcom 1510 Wireless-N



my biggest problem is where to start.  I have tried some of the bootloaders and usually get to a kernel panic before it ever boots very far.

well after several kernel panics and hang up during install, i finally defaulted the BIOS to factory defaults. and bingo, it installed just as it should have!


everything works with a little nudging here and there


now i need to figure out how to change the model identifier, it currently calls the pc a Summer 2001 iMac, it appears to cause trouble with some app in the appstore saying that they are not compatible with this mac


thanks for the help!!!!!!
