Alienware 14

Recommended Posts

So i've managed to get Niresh onto my Alienware 14 with the following spec:

Intel 4710MQ CPU


GTX765M Graphics // Intel HD 4600

Crucial M500 960gb ssd


After a massive amount of difficulty in getting the bootloader installed without Boot0: error I now have a booting install. 

Now the issue i'm facing is that the graphics don't work unless I run GraphicsEnabler=Yes IntelAzulFB=1-9 or 11-15. 10 Does not work as reported by others it just freezes up on boot. Also 1-8 and 13-15 produce a flickering picture but 9, 11 and 12 leave varying degrees of screen tearing at the top. Tried Skipnvidiagfx=Yes but no different.


I have totally run out of ideas at this point - can't help thinking it has something to do with lack of optimus support but haven't been able to make sense of the workarounds to block the nVidia card from being detected.
