i tried to update 10.6.1 it works but updating to 10.6.2 screwed my os it was a kext problem or a kernel i dont have free time to work on it so back to 10.6 now just fixing cpus=1 and sleep ....

Jan-20-2010:

Install kexts

IR:
worked alone im using another ir from hp i got it from my retailer its serial RC1762302/00 or HP SPS : 435743-001
ps:it doesnt work on windows 7 or vista u need to patch the driver like what i did

Graphics:
Radeonhd.kext
remove all other atis.kexts

Wifi:
just use bcm43xx_enabler.sh {sudo ./bcm43xx_enabler.sh enter proceed with the instructions..)

keyboard plus synaptics:
u need to install patched appleps2controller.kext +install trackpad prefpane the patched one

faster reboot +shutdown:
remove OpenHaltRestart.kext
install osxrestart.kext

audio + microphone:
latest voodoohda.kext

Webcam:
iopcfamily261.kext
it works on every single software even skype...

To improve other stuff:
use my dsdt and install VoodooTSCSync.kext fakesmc2.5.kext iosdhciblockdevice.kext
remove AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

Added my own custom theme

And finally my boot config (using rc4 chameleon manually)
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1600x900x32@60</string>
<key>Graphics Enabler</key>
<string>yes</string>
<key>Hide Partition</key>
<string>hd(0,5)</string>
<key>Default Partition</key>
<string>hd(0,1)</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>cpus=1 arch=i386 </string>
<key>Instant Menu </key>
<string>n</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>10</string>

Last but least if u guyz know anyone to try and help us out fixing our buggy dsdt it would be great

ps:about the audio if it comes out from bottom of the laptop i really didnt try to test it cause its not very important if hd videos (lags) doesnt work only sd videos

I have a dv7t-2200 and I have been unsuccessful in installing 10.6. Could you post a detailed guide and what kexts you used? Thanks a ton!

I'm curious as to what you used to get the IR remote working... and for sound, do you get any sound coming from the woofer at the bottom of the notebook?

Installed Snow Leopard...almost everything is working... but I'm only getting sound from the main speakers at the top and no IR...

I actually have a DV7-1038... so it's the predecessor to your DV7-2000... I dunno if the kexts I used will work for you since your machine is different from mine. Hope SoOlDiEr has a chance to answer your questions since his laptop is similar to yours.

Maybe if you list your specifications, that will help me see if you have similar specs to my machine... might be a longshot, but worth a shot :)

I installed Snow Leopard with EmpireEFI... was the only method that enabled the mouse and keyboard during the installation process.

the EmpireEFI only can use the cphs=1. which can't use all the cpus.
Has anyone doing the solution for this?

Thank you guys! I have successfully installed a retail copy of Snow Leopard via Empire EFI. Muchas Gracias! I cannot get my webcam to work, or IR for that matter. cpus=1 is also a problem.

I have yet to try this myself, but here is a supposed way to get graphics completely working!

That's what I have for a graphics card anyways.

Yes, but they should be fairly similar. You never know until you try!

I have a DV7-3183cl Dual booting with Windows 7.

I am not sure about the older dv7's but mine has the capability to have two Hard Drives.
Also If anyone needs more Kexts, Check out the linked Zip in my signature.

Hope this helps.

Hello SoOlDiEr
I had experience installing osx. Now I bought dv7t especially for osx and I am just preparing for installing and gathering some information.

Can you tell me which parts are not working. I need to know what features I might loose.

On this forum tonymacx86 I found that standard wireless adapter does work and there is no solution. And I ordered dell's wifi card. Does your dv7t standard wifi adapter Intel 802.11b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth really work with you kexts?
Does mic works?
Do you have problems with sound when you connecting headphones and it doesnt work. (I had same problem whith toshiba until found suitable kext)

Thank you very much.
