About This File

Specs: Hp Envy Beats 14' i7 720M 1.6Ghz - 8Gb RAM - 640Gb HD - ATI Radeon 5650m 1Gb...

What works:

Graphic card QE/CI full, Sound, battery, webcam HD with facetime, photobooth, etc., brightness, touchpad multitouch, usb's, bluethooth, ethernet, keymaps from mac keyboard, cd/dvd/rw, hdmi port.

What doesn't work: Wifi.

STEPS - HOWTO install Mac OS Lion 10.7.2 on the Envy Beats 14' Notebook:

1 - Install Mac OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.6 with the method you like(LeoHazard).

2 - Follow this tutorial: http://{censored}.blogspot.com/2011/07/xmove-MB{censored}-install-os-x-107-lion.html... (If the "OS X Lion App" crash, right click on it - click on "Show Packages Contents" - Contents - SharedSupport - open "InstallESD.dmg" image - in the opened image open "Install Mac OS X Lion" app).

3 - After installed download the zip file attached

Install the 4 kexts with Kext Helper b7 - AppleACPIBatteryManager for the battery - IOPCIFammily and IOUSBFamily for the webcam - VoodooHDA for the Sound.

Copy the com.apple.Boot.plist to /Extra from your system.

Copy the boot file from the zip to / (root) folder.

4 - If you get a scrambled screen you can make these steps:

4.1 Install SwitchResX if you haven't already, set the resolution to your liking.

4.2 Boot to Windows and retrieve your EDID using the ELDIM - EDIDViewer(Google it).

Once you have the EDID saved somewhere you can access (online, text file, USB key, whatever), reboot to OSX.

Once you have your EDID, boot OSX (using screen sharing, if the screen is unusable) and open SwitchResX.

Drag this file to your Desktop: /System/Library/Displays/Overrides/DisplayVendorID-756e6b6e/DisplayProductID-717??, and rename it to *.plist.

Open it with Plist Editor Pro, and add your EDID (You must have to copy your edid in the text file you have saved from Windows and paste in there with the same template code).

Once done, remove the .plist extension, overwrite the /System/Library/Displays/Overrides/DisplayVendorID-756e6b6e/DisplayProductID-717 file, and reboot.

5 - Reboot and Voila!

*If you are having scrambled screen after doing the EDID process do the following:

Option 1: Boot with GraphicsEnabler=No to the system then configure the VNC server on Lion - Preferences - Sharing - mark Remote Management - mark all options - hit Computer Settings - mark "VNC viewers may control screen with password" - enter a password - ok. Then access your computer from any other computer or device with vnc client - Change the resolution screen to 1366x768 in System Preferences - Displays.

Option 2: Install LogMeIn - logmein.com - you must make an account for free. Then access your computer from other computer or device with LogMeIn client - Change the resolution screen to 1366x768 in System Preferences - Displays.

When it's done you will not have to do this anymore.

If i get the wifi working i update here.
