STEP BY STEP GUIDE 3.0
(Looking for Testers)
- My new >> DV3 BootCD with 3.0 Drivers Pack and SimpleInstaller included << Just burn this to CD.
It´s an ISO image, so you can use osx or windows to burn your BootCD. You can even mount it in windows with daemontools to view contents.
- OS X Leopard retail, any version from 10.5.0.
- Download [url="http://"http://support.apple.com/downloads/Mac_OS_X_10_5_8_Combo_Update""]10.5.8 combo update [/url]. Move it in your pendrive or external device being used or download it with OS X already installed. Of course you can also use software update utility, but combo installer it's recommended.
-[ABOUT WIFI] Now you can use KINGNOOB v15 BIOS to avoid the whitelist (This allow WIFI card replacement). This pack includes installer for win7/vista. Take a look at the last point of this guide to find more info about this.
2 - LOADING RETAIL DVD:
Turn on your laptop, and press F10
Go into the bios and change the boot order, setting the DVD on the first place.
Put on your dvd drive the DV3 CdBoot you've previously recorded on cd.
You'll see Darwin starts to load. . When it appears, you'll see "Would you like to enable media rescan option?"
Press F8 when a green bar appears, and quicky press the eject button of your drive.
Insert your retail DVD and wait about 30-40 secs until the light of your drive is off and press Escape to reload.
When "Mac OS X Install DVD" appears, press enter.
If you dont wait long enough to read the DVD before pressing Enter, you'll see some error messages. It is not important, are simply attempts to read, but they are ugly to see. Much better if you wait till the DVD stops by itself.
Darwin starts to load and displays a smiling green apple: I´ve used this distinctive icon on my new DV3BootCD to avoid any mistake with the Chameleon boot, which installs on the hard disk.
Behind this screen, some strange things are happening.
3 - FORMATTING:
After a minute or two, you'll see the language selection screen of Mac OS X.
Choose your desired language, and click the blue arrow below.
You'll see the Welcome screen.
Run the Hard Disk Utility located on the top.
Select the whole hard disk, the first icon on the left (not the partitions, whole HD) and click on the tab "Partitions".
In the dropdown "Volume Scheme", select the number of partitions that you want, and click Options (bottom). Select the first option: "GUID Partition Table" and click OK.
Resize the partitions if you want, and choose a nice name, preferably without spaces to the main partition (Something like OSX or LEOPARD).
As format: select MAC OS Extended (Journaled) on each partition.
(Optional) Triple boot: If you´re planning to install Windows 7 and/or Ubuntu 9, create at least 3 partitions:
(This is my initial config, as an example)
1- Leopard (HFS+) 60GB
2- Windows7 (FAT) 60GB
3- Ubuntu9 (FAT) 30GB
4- LinuxSwap (FAT) 4GB
5- Vault (FAT) +100GB
6- OSX Test & Backup (HFS+) 20GB
Later you can format the partitions in the specific format for each operating system.
From this moment, our HD is ready for OS X. We left the old MBR partition table for a newer GPT.
4 - INSTALLING:
Close the Disk Utility and return to the Welcome screen. Click "continue."
We will see the Apple´s EULA, and we´re agree.
We came to the screen, "select a target disk". Select your first partition, and click on Continue.
On last screen, You can click "customize" and remove things you dont need (languages, fonts, printer drivers, etc), but leave checked the x11 thing, it´s useful and many software takes use of it.
Click on Install.
Now relax, and watch the blue progress bar. When completed, it will prompt a kind of error and says that it will reboot your computer. But don´t worry and click Reboot.
When you see the HP logo, press the power off button of your laptop.
Turn it on again, and quickly press the eject button on the DVD.
Remove the retail OS X DVD, and re-enter the CDBoot. If you don´t have enought time, turn off and try again, but do it.
How to boot from HD with the DV3 CDboot:
When it ask: Would you like to enable media rescan option?
Press any key (but not the Enter key).
Press F8 then green bar appears.
Select your partition with cursor keys if needed, and press enter.
5 - FIRST START:
OS X still can´t boot from the HD, so we had to return to cdBoot.
At this moment you should be watching the video of the introduction of Leopard, with its music, (now in your native res with the new DV3 BootCD), its galaxies and all that stuff. Then a blue screen, colorful cursor ... and you´re inside.
Start with the account setup wizard . Just Follow the steps, take your first photo, and you will see the desktop for the first time.
OS X will recognize the network or WIFI (if compatible) card automatically on this machine, from the beginning. If you have the ethernet cable plugged in, simply type a static IP for your pc and the gateway (the address of your router)
When you arrive at the desk, keep in mind that Leopard is
(Now you get QE/CI all the time, with DV3 BootCD)
6 - UPDATING TO 10.5.8
-Now install the official 10.5.8 combo update that you downloaded and saved on your pendrive previously, or If you have Internet connection, download it from Apple now.
After installation, repeat the same from point 4. (boot with DV3 BootCD).
It will reboot 2 times.
7- INSTALLING DRIVERS:
Note: This part of my tutorial is still a testing area, and it will be in constant restructuring, possibly changing some of the drivers employed. Check from time to time this part of the tutorial to find out if there have been changes or additions.
- Open your DV3 BootCD.
- Open "HP DV3500 3.0" folder:
------- Run "HP DV3500.mpkg" and you will see ... "SimpleInstaller 1.0" !! ----.
SimpleInstaller 1.0 will help us to install everything we need, making all even easier.
SimpleInstaller just copy some files to 3 locations of your HD:
/Extra - It will copy the folder "Extra" to the root of your HD. This folder contains most of the Kext we need, including Nvidia 9300, internal keyboard and touchpad, etc.
/Library/PreferencePanes - Here it will copy "Shades" (application to control the brightness) and overwrites the original trackpad.prefPane by a new one, that will work with our trackpad (2 finger scrolling, tap, vertical scrolling, etc.. . )
/Applications - Two apps (Kext Utility 2.0 and Hardware Monitor) and the folder "DV3500" , which contains the rest of Kext to use.
---- Now let's do our part: -------
Go to your Applications folder and open the folder "DV3500".
1 - Installing Chameleon 2 RC2. (You have 2 options to do so)
OPTION A: (Using Chameleon 2 installer)
- First of all, rename your folder "Extra" that is at the root of your main partition, or move it to the desktop.
- Go to your Applications folder and open the folder "dv3500".
- Open the folder "Chameleon-2-RC2-R640 Installer" and run the file inside. Install it to your main partition.
- When finished, delete the folder "Extra" that Chameleon has created, and replace it with yours.
Dont reboot yet, and go to Step 2.
OPTION B: (Manual Installation with Scripts )
In your folder "DV3500" you can found "Chameleon2 RC2 R640 bin". It contains Chameleon´s binary files, and we will install through a simple script that I've written, to make it easier.
- Click on Spotlight and type "terminal".
- Now type or copy these commands:
cd /Applications/DV3500/Chameleon-2-RC2-Bin/i386 sh Chameleon2Script.sh- The script will make us 2 questions: "Would you like to install Chameleon on disk0s2 partition?" (the partition of OS X), then "would you like to flag it as active?". Answer "Y" to both questions, and we have Chameleon2 already installed.
2 - Go to your folder "DV3500" and open the folder "Intel IDT Audio".
- Run the KextHelper. Drag the files "AppleHDA, HDA Enabler and IOUSBfamily " to the top window of Kexthelper.
- Enter your administrator password and click "Easy Install". Then close Kexthelper but don´t reboot yet.
3 - Go to folder "DV3500" and open the folder "Media Keys Enabler".
- Double click on the "Configuration" file inside. The app will open for 5 second and then will close.
- Reopen the same file, and then it will ask " you want to add your prefs?". Click "Insert"
- Click the button "preferences" and check the option "launch butler on log in".
- Uncheck "Display splash Screen" and Close it by now.
4 - (optional) Go to "Applications" and run "Hardware Monitor".
- When it ask for "install drivers for Intel extended support?" and so on, say yes to everything.
- When finished, right click the icon in the dock, and close it.
5 - Back to "applications" and run the "Kext Utility 2.0". It may take a while to finish. Meanwhile, Unmount your CD.
--- Reboot now WITHOUT your BootCD -----------
You should be watching now the standard Chameleon´s silver apple:
(If you´re still seeing the smiling green one, eject your bootCD)
8 - FINAL FIXES
1- Go to "System preferences" and..
- Open "Energysaver", click "show details" and set Sleep to "never" for both AC and battery. We do this until we have a definitive solution to the wake from Sleep.
- Open the new panel "Trackpad" and activate the "clicking". Set "scrolling speed" to the minimum, and uncheck "horizontal scrolling. "
- Open "displays" tab and click "color". Click the "Calibrate" button, and when you get to "white point" option set "PC monitor."
- Click "Share" Here you can put the name of your PC.
- Open "Shades" and set your preferences.
2 - Click on the apple menu, "dock", and turn magnification on.
3 - Set expose and spaces to your liking.
Enjoy your OS X Leopard!!!
-Sources and info about 3.0 drivers pack: Section not ready yet.
- WIFI & Final Thoughts: Kingnoob its the user who probably wrote the best first post ever (at least for a few of us).
Now is possible to replace the WiFi card that comes with our laptop, the Intel 5100, (for which there are no drivers for OSX) with any Airport compatible card.
The installer included in the ZIP attachment is from the original HP Website. (intended for Vista/windows 7 32bits) and includes the Kingnoob BIOS (.FD extension) It is based on the F15 official firmware.
I bought my card here: Justopeshop. They are English Ebay powersellers but I think they can deliver worldwide.
I can highly recommend: Dell DW1390 or Dell DW1490.
Other alternatives are: An compatible external USB wifi (I was using the conceptronic C54RU , with this drivers.) or an Expresscard (that goes into the side of the laptop where the remote is stored) like the Dell DW1390 (reported by esoterikest)
- Our fingerprint reader is this one. The bad news are that Validity fingerprints seems not to have osx support yet... I've also tried with Upek software but doesn't work.
- Now we need help about wake from sleep and brightness controls.
