Hp dv6-7000


Booting into verbose leaves be at what the attached image shows

Using cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No or just graphicsenabler=no goes to the apple logo then tells me to reboot

PCIRootUID=0/1 tells me an error with my Nvidia graphics(630m)

Ok so my install method was a little different as i only had install ESD so couldnt use U{censored},

Used myHack to create bootable USB

Used the fix for detecting internal HDD (located on page 10 of this thread)

Booted to installer using cpus=1 PCIRootUID=0 (didnt need GraphicsEnabler=No because i dont have graphics card)

Formatted my HDD and stuff in the installer and then installed

Booted straight into mac (again i didnt need to remove Nvidia kexts as i dont have graphics card)

changed stuff using chameleon wizard as you recommended in the tutorial

changed my smbios to mac 9,2 not 9,1 as it specifically listed i5 3210-m as the processor (my processor)

next i spent ages trying to get ethernet, eventually got it using this kext Hackintosh RTGNICv2.0.6For10.7.zip - Downloads - OSx86.net

Used MB{censored} and installed ps2 mouse/keyboard drivers which seemed to gain fully functioning mouse

Tried upgrading to 10.8.3 but am now stuck at still waiting for root device on boot, trried a few things, none are working so far

I think thats it, if i think of anything else ill edit this

Also if you think of anything i could do to boot past "still waiting for root device" please let me know

@dmcb1234 try these command lines:

cd /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext/Contents/MacOS

sudo mv IOAHCIBlockStorage IOAHCIBlockStorage.orig

sudo cp IOAHCIBlockStorage.orig IOAHCIBlockStorage

sudo /usr/bin/perl -pi -e 's|\xcb\x57\x00\x00\xee\x03|\xcb\x57\x00\x00\xea\x01|g' IOAHCIBlockStorage

sudo /usr/bin/perl -pi -e 's|\x74\x0e\x48\x8d\x3d\x72\x94\x00\x00|\xbf\xc8\x00\x00\x00\x90\x90\x90\x90|g' IOAHCIBlockStorage

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

Ye tried that, didnt work for me :/ i just reinstalled 10.8.0 and im back now so its ok :)

It seems that when you upgraded it uninstalled the kext that fixed the internal drive error, so reinstalling that after the upgrade should fix it, but I am not sure.

So i have osx installed on a flash drive, it boots up slow and runs slow, does anybody else have this problem, if not is it because i am working off of a 8g flashdrive

Hmm thats weird, I am running it off a 1TB external usb 3.0 drive and it works pretty fast, at least haven't been getting any lag. It might be that 8gb is just too little for OS X to run properly, but I am not sure. If you have an old drive lying around I would say try that.
