So I have some bad/sad news for all of you today.

Despite my best efforts to patch the drivers I've been failing. I may be able to get it working at a later time but for now it seems we won't be getting Nvidia graphics.

Apparently apple uses their optimus differently than the rest of the world as their cards actually switch the output card depending on the demands of the application. The rest of the world just activates the Nvidia card when the Intel gpu can't handle the graphics load, then uses the Nvidia card to render and the Intel gpu to display the data.

It is possible to write a driver/patch a driver to work .... probably.

It's just out of my ability. So for now I am continuing to work on this but am just working on getting intel HD up and running so we have at least a partially working system.

Once the Intel card works the first guide will be posted here. If and when I can get Nvidia working alongside intel, The guide will be updated.

Well, I am sure you've already seen this, but..

Enable HD 4000 graphics on your Hackintosh (updated)

I don't know if that will help with recognizing extra cores. I am about to acquire one of these machines as well maybe. I am a 4th year CS major with some experience in Objective-C (ipad app) and C/C++, but none in driver programming. Perhaps I can help in some way.

Remember, college is more important than OS X. :P

I just traded my 3 to 4 year old Macbook Pro for one of these. It is a sweet machine. I may have to switch from my Probook 4530s depending on how reliable I can get this build. I won't if I can't get it to recognize all four cores, though.

Aj is working on this and as far as i know it will work.
