Hi all. I need some help with my new notebook. I tried some OSX86 releases (iatkos, Kalyway, Leo4All, iDeneb), read through many many forums and topics in this forum but there's not even a chance to get to the installation of Leopard. The farthest i get is to the message "Extension "com.apple.driver.ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin" has immediate dependencies on both com.apple.kernel and com.apple.kpi components; use ony one style"...

HP Compaq 6715s
Processor: AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 (2x2GHz)
Chipset: AMD M690T
RAM: 2GB
Graphics: ATI Radeon X1250 (128-512MB RAM shared)
HDD: Fujitsu MHZ2250BH G2 250GB SATA

I found a new release (lawlessppc's Leopard 10.5.4) and I got a bit further. The verbose mode shows this:
npvhash=4095
hi mem tramps at 0xffe00000
PAE enabled
Darwin Kernel Version 9.4.0.....
Local APIC version not 0x14 as expected
Extension "com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform" has immediate dependencies on both com.apple.kernel and com.apple.kpi components use only one style.
AppleACPICPU: ProcessorApicId=1 LocalApicId=0 Enabled
AppleACPICPU: ProcessorApicId=2 LocalApicId=1 Enabled

MAC Framework successfully intialized

This is as far as I get. Then the computer doesn't do anything...

try entering into your bios setup, my hp is like F1 at boot, it maybe F1, F2 or delete. Scroll over to the advanced tab and set SATA to IDE, try and see if that works, it should be defaulted to like AHCI, etc. change that to IDE.

take a picture of your bios screen , etc. give some insight to the menus, etc. maybe someone will be very famil. with your version and let you in.

also check this post out, and check the link within it to see if your model is in there or what not, cuz you do have the amd turion processor if i remebered correctly which is what theyre talking about here.

If I remember correctly, this laptop has a very simple BIOS... Passwords, boot sequence, run HDD diagnostics, and maybe a couple other irrelevant options. So, you probably cannot change the HDD controller mode.

However, maybe you can try using a USB DVDROM drive? If you're not even able to boot from the DVD into the OS X setup, that's probably a good place to start.

Additionally, you can try just leaving it for a while. I have a dv2949se that would appear frozen while booting the OS X disc, but after about 15 minutes, it started reading from the disc again. Not sure why, though... and it's a different chipset than yours (Mine has a GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M).

And if you want more details about your hardware, this is the Service Manual for your series:
http://bizsupport2.a...6/c01570696.pdf

I may have a computer with a chipset in the same series as yours, so I can check out how well it works with OS X if you continue to have problems..... It's an AMD690G with a Radeon X1250... pretty close.

I don't know if this applies to your hardware or even to your problem but I saw somebody saying to "set a password on the hard drive" in the BIOS. I've never seen a BIOS with this option but I guess it can't hurt.

If you can't get any further from there when booting the install DVD the only options you have are the following:

Change BIOS settings
Update your BIOS
Try different Darwin Boot Flags (look them up)
Try another install DVD

Freezing at the IOAPIC message means there was trouble during initializing your motherboard (next message from there is mbinit:done).

* /EDIT (May 2010) yes, I pulled that right out of my {censored} didn't I. mbinit refers to memory buffers and has to do with memory allocation. Way to look stupid.

Have you tried booting with the -v -f -x boot flags?

None of those will help since it can't even get past motherboard initialization mbinit:done.

Besides -x and -f should never be necessary when booting from an install DVD, and since he could see the error message, he was already booting with -v, or the DVD boots in verbose mode by default.

I would suggest trying with different ACPI flags (look them up) and cpus=1 if it has a multicore CPU.

True, but I had one system that wouldn't boot unless the -x switch was used. I just mentioned -v for those discs that don't boot in verbose mode by default, and, yeah, -f shouldn't actually do anything when booting from DVD....

This laptop has a faulty BIOS (no matter what version)
It works fine with Windoze, but Mac will probably never work (as HP are not likely to fix it)
Linux, BSD can be made working, as different ACPI extensions were coded by users

Lol!!

Sorry, my English is very bad, my question was about what I recommend for computer Kalyway?

Thank you very much for your help

I also tried linux, and is super slow on this laptop.

Best Intel or AMD?

Every day more hatred HP.


PS: I'm thinking about buying a Mac Mini (the price today is better) to think?
