    {GUIDE} hp dv6 7000

    Hello everybody, This is my first guide so bear with me. This system is not yet fully working but I decided to already make a start as the thread that this is being discussed on now has all the information floating around the many pages. The other thread will be more up to date with what is happening but as soon as new things work I will post them here. One note, I am not responsible for what you do with this information, use at your own risk. So to start of you need: A 8 or more GB usb stick An external drive or dvd bay caddy and drive enclosure to install on. (I am now using an external drive as I am waiting for my caddy, the internal drive I will fix once I have more stuff working) A retail copy of OS X 10.8.2. A working os x install (I am using a virtual machine) A usb for transferring files as internet does not yet work 1. Go to {censored} and download the newest {censored} for mountain lion. First format your usb stick to mac os x extended journaled and guid partition scheme. Now put your OS X install inside applications if it isn't there yet (if downloaded from app store this is automatic) Start {censored} and click through the menu options. Select your usb and select laptop compatibility. Note the time line in {censored} is NOT correct, so just have a cup of coffee while you wait for it to finish. Once that is finished power off your hp laptop. Put the {censored} usb in one of the usb 3.0 ports (not necessary but recommended). If you are using an external drive that is usb 3.0 put it in a usb 3.0 port. Otherwise put it in the usb 2.0 port (usb 2.0 it the one on the right closest to the power cord). Now power up your laptop and straight away press F9 till you see that it is going to boot selection. When there select your usb and press enter. Now you see all your partitions. You want to have your usb selected, DO NOT press enter. While the usb is selected type this line without quotations: "cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 -f -v". You will see allot of text go by, don't worry this is what we want so if it doesn't work we know why. When you are in the installer go to utilities in the top menu. Then go to disk utility. Format and partition the drive to mac os x extended journaled. Then press options and make sure it is a GUID partition scheme. Then go through the installer. Once the installer is done it will reboot. Do NOT boot into your usb. If using a virtual machine, go to windows and start the virtual machine, otherwise attach the drive to a working os x install. Once the drive is mounted navigate to "/system/library/extension" on the drive you just installed on. Then delete the 4 GeForce kexts. Now put the {censored} usb in the laptop and attach the drive you installed os x on earlier. Press F9 again and select your usb. When you are in {censored} select the drive you just installed os x on. Then type this line without quotations: "cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No -v". Now you should be able to boot and setup your mac. Fist make the folder /Extra ("drive name"/Extra. Now thing to do is make an smbios and org.chameleon.Boot. To make these you will need chameleon wizard. Download that here: Chameleon Wizard - Utility for Chameleon. - Chameleon - InsanelyMac Forum. When in chameleon wizard navigate to smbios. Then press edit. Then go to the pre-made smbios selection. Select the macbook pro 9,1. Click save as and save it to the /Extra folder you just made. Next in chameleon wizard navigate to org.chameleon.Boot. Then you will want to select save as and save it in /Extra. Now go to /Extra and double click on the org.chameleon.Boot.plist. Then select Graphics Mode (on the right) and select 1366x768x32 for 720p screen and 1920x1080x32 for 1080p screen. This will set the proper resolution for your screen. After doing all this you should be able to boot with the flag: cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No. For audio use the newest multi beast and select VooDooHDA Ok so great news. To get full graphics support add these lines to org.chameleon.Boot. Open it in text editor insted of chameleon wizard and paste this. It gives full graphics support. <key>device-properties</key> <string>5e00000001000000010000005200000001000000 02 010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c000000 4100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066 006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000003006601</string> To get the battery detected delete AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext and AppleACPIPlatform.kext from /System/Library/Extensions. Then install the two kexts you can download here: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/download/348-voodoobattery-hp-dv6-7000/. Don't forget to repair permission and rebuild the system cache. I have tested this part enough now to say it works. To fix cpus=1 and GraphicsEnabler=No download this lapic kernel fix and follow the instructions left by iGebriel. Hackintosh ML 10.8.2 mach_kernel_lapic_fix.zip - Downloads - OSx86.net. After doing that you should be able to boot without any flags although I recommend to always use the flag "-v" (without quotations) so you can see what the problem is if it doesn't boot. If after you follow his instructions open kext wizard, go to maintanance and select System/Library/Extensions. You should then have 3 check boxes marked. Execute that and you are good to go. The list of things that I am still working on: DSDT (which should fix the ethernet and other problems) SSDT and AppleCPUPowerManagement WiFi (you will need to buy a new card, I am waiting for mine to arrive but when it does I will update) Multitouch (shouldn't be very difficult but I am first working on the base system) I have not yet tested HDMI or VGA, I will do so when I get the base system working. I purposely didn't install chameleon or chimera yet because these were not working so you need to boot with your usb each time. I hope this helps people. Sorry if I forgot something or if it is unclear (I am a little sick at the moment). If there are any questions post them below or send me a pm. If you have anything, anything at all that might help please tell me and I will take a look at it.

    Wish I could add to the title that this probably only works for Intel Panther Point chipsets! All that work, only to find an absence of hard drive in the OSX installer! This may be because your (probably laptop's) SATA mode is RAID and not AHCI. On many HP (probably other newer) laptops, the SATA mode is RAID. I'm not really sure why, but it makes our lives more difficult. And of course you cannot change this in the BIOS. NOTE: You may *think* you're in AHCI mode, if only because you just bought your laptop, but it could be RAID. We can safely rule out IDE mode if your laptop has Ivy Bridge, not sure about earlier Core setups but I imagine the same goes for at least Sandy Bridge. You also may have used one of the various methods of verifying AHCI mode as enabled through Windows. I got that too. My setup is an HP m6-1045dx with Ivy Bridge i5 and Panther Point (H77 - Series 7) chipset. I'm seeing a pattern with the Panther Points being RAID mode, so this just might be your fix. You need Kext Wizard, a computer running OSX (even if it's a Virtual Machine) and your U{censored} or myHack USB flash drive. Download the modified-for-RAID kext here and extract the zip. Note that the zip includes the modified and unmodified kext "AppleAHCIport", use the modified one. Select that modified kext and install it to System/Libraries/Extensions on your USB flash drive with Kext Wizard. Now try that installation again!

    Install Snow Leopard on Biostar TP43D2-A7

    Hi ifeyfm, welcome! LGA775 boards can be set up for 10.6 with Nawcom´s Mod CD 0.3.1 or 0.3.2 available from the DL section. Best initialize your HDD with OSX disk Utility to have a bootable HDD. Backup your data before doing so! Ensure you have your SATA controllers in AHCI mode. Ensure you have enabled your CPU’s C states. (if available) Ensure you have HPET set to 64bit. (if available) Disable any devices you do not intend to use (extra SATA, Firewire, etc). Boot from Mod CD, swap DVD for Mod CD at the screen with the old phone and press F5. You should get into the OSX installer then. Your GPU may need some tinkering unfortunately. [HOW TO] Working HD5570 for Snow Leopard - ATi - InsanelyMac Forum Good luck!
