  1. ? @Chanelle, ? I initially followed pokenguyen's tutorial (pretty good I might add) for an E7440, but I've been unable to get QE/CI (graphics acceleration) working properly. Looks like our model shares almost identical specs. Have you had any luck??
  2. That's what I thought. I guess I will hold off until I hear back from him.
  3. Where are we at on the DSDT?
  4. Have you been able to get your wifi card working yet? If the VooDooHDA doesn't cause KPs, I'll install tonight.
  5. @David does the audio work now or does it still give KPs? I noticed it looks like you're recommending a different audio kext in the guide.
  6. I am upgrading to it now. I suggest everyone else does then. Good deal gsavoldi, thank AJ for the bios info. I would start with removing the geforce kexts like in the guide.
  7. I would go ahead and update to F.26. Sounds like 24 is buggy. You might wait for AJ to verify this but I think it's safe. Make sure your computer is plugged in and you don't have any extra windows programs open, etc so your computer doesn't brick if the flash fails. I can't be responsible for that, obviously. Heed HP's warnings.
  8. Can everyone post what bios they are running? @david @gsavoldi @aj. I'll check after I'm done rendering a cat. Update: Looks like I'm running F.23. I'm game for updating to 26.
  9. Yes, I did. Once I deleted the geforce kexts and set up the SMBios, I think that was what fixed it. @gsavoldi Did you try deleting the geforce kexts and setting up the SMBios like in David's guide? Also, what is the last line you see when you have the verbose (-v) flag? Like what does it freeze on? That way we might be able to figure out where it's hanging at. Also, is your display full HD? That might have something to do with it, since mine is 720p or 1366x768.
  10. Will do man. Good luck. I have a few finals and some 3d rendering to do. I think 10.8.2 works fyi, since that's what I'm on I believe. I can double check.
  11. Indeed we might have to make our own anyway, but maybe we should all consider updating to the latest bios for simplicity. I think it's F.23 if I'm not mistaken. I haven't noted any changes or problems with it since I updated from my older one. I guess that's up to the user, though personally I don't see something not working between bios revisions. Also AJ, it's good to have you back. I'm sorry about what happened--I had an ex gf go through a similar circumstance...it was rough. For the record, I can boot with zero flags and so far, zero KPs. I used david's guide. I wasn't able to boot 10.8.3 after a clean install (which installed without issues, but couldn't boot), however you might have better luck.
  12. USB 2.0 flash speeds are much, much slower than USB 3.0. If you run it off an external hard drive, you're getting almost SATA level performance, whereas with USB 2.0, you're probably getting 7-27 mb/s read/write, which is pretty miserable.
  13. Actually man, there is a way to edit the kext files in windows. My macbook pro came with boot camp drivers that made HFS+ partitions editable and viewable in windows just like you'd think like an NTFS partition. If you install the latest boot camp drivers, you should be able to edit your HFS partition. I have done this and got it to work successfully on my Probook and my hackintosh desktop. @David- The computer world is pretty vast. You'll be able to find something interesting, I'm sure. As a senior CS college student I have limited time on stuff like this and spend most of my time programming as required by my major. My story is pretty similar as well--started building computers from dead ones when I was 12 and had no internet and no idea what I was doing. I've learned more that way in every subject by trial and error than watching a professor babble away. Don't get me wrong; school is important, but it can't carry you as far as self-motivation in the long term. However, in this day and age, you MUST have a 4 year degree if you hope to live not as a popper. On a related note, I have the atheros wifi card from my Probook installed but it is not being recognized, I'm guessing because I need to drop in a kext or something. If I get time, I'll try to do that this week. Still keeping away from audio per david since I hear it is causing KPs, unless this has changed?
  14. It looks like a very similar model... I'll bet the power management would work and most everything else, including the Intel HD 4000 graphics... maybe you can help us test.
  15. What's your exact model #? You might have to have a different DSDT and cpu management w/ lapic fix but some work might carry over.
