Hey guys!

I managed to install Mountain lion on my DV6-6090ee but i have some problems and need some help:


1.speedsteper and turbo boost is not enabeled and my geekbench score is about 6800. (My cpu is core i7 2630QM)

2.Brightness keys (F2,F3) are not working. by the way my brightness is not at maximum (although the slider is at the max) when i boot up into OS and after display sleep (set to 1 min) the brightness sets to maximum and i can change brightness from setting.(its weird)

3.No multi touch enabled trckpad.

4.The coolig fan is working all the time and its noisy but the temperature is normal (i guess).

5.The battery life is under 2 hours.

6.boot time takes about 1 minute or more and i think its too much.

7.I have no luck to install a bootloader and i get this error : boot0:error. i have to boot from USB stick.

8.sleep / wake up give me a black screen but system is working and it can not wake up.


and i wanted to know could anybody make USB 3.0 and WiFi (Broadcom 4313) work.


Thanks for your help.

there are risks ... by changing the bios often create semi brick
if it happens

you have to disconnect the battery "tampone" for 10s

There was one also here:

Strange that does not work that in Multi_beast........

However, Mountain Lion is on my new DV7-7002el and Intel HD4000 mobile is ok! :D

Solve some problems, and then start the istaller for the series DV6/7 6000 and 7000 series,

Is this ok? :construction:

Hello,

I'll explain a bit:

the bios of HP, made by Insyde, is a set of modules that provide the interface to the operating system between software and firmware of hardware components.
Along with these modules, there are also tables of ACPI:

dsdt, SSDT, ssdt1, sddt2 (and more), APIC, RSDT, UEFI etc.

Different between F1a or F1b is only cosmetic (some bad recognition memory banks that HP has found on particular brands of RAM stick, but obviously not all), at least dsdt is the same! So for OSX, but also for Windows, you do not realize anything!

So do not worry to choose between F1a or F1b, because they are practically the same!

The point, is that this type of bios, manufactured by Insyde is RSA signed, and this means that he possesses an encryption:

if you try to mod the bios, and flashig it, you will get an error because the generated file will not be the same as the original one signed, and installer stop the job!

RSA is impossible to decrypt, because its keys is so long that it has billions of combinations.

Using an old installer (previous to RSA time), you can flash the bios (the one posted by @simconti and me).
Unfortunately, of course, the signature was invalid on a modded bios, and if you try to change several settings (not all) when you save the setting on the CMOS, the bios chip comparing the two signatures, and will produce error: the semi-brick

CMOS is a volatile memory, this means that when you remove the power (disconnecting the "battery button") the bios back to its original state!...... ALWAYS!!!!!!

So my advice, if you put the modded bios amended as follows:

always leaves the battery is disconnected, and if it happens semi-brick , just remove the battery of the laptop and everything is fine! (wait about 10/12 seconds to discharge capacitors).


Semi-brick happens if there is no patch in dsdt, or sometimes if hard reset made by powering down your Lappy holding the power button (but only if system is already freeze)!
On our dsdt is present the patch to prevent the reset of the CMOS!


Warning:

Flashing bios on Laptop is always dangerous, even with the original bios!! (think happens if you lost power while flashing the bios: disaster!!)
Unlike motherboards Desktop, Notebooks do not have a removable bios (easy to replace), ........the repair will cost 80 Euros on a not official laboratory in Italy.

Do this only at your own risk!!!!


Feedback from me: the bios mod is ok:

semi-brick is not a total brick, is it always recoverable in few seconds!


Consider, this is not a choice for life, you can put original bios when you want!

disadvantages:

-You can not change several settings.
-Possible, recoverable semi-brick

advantages:

-You can put the wifi card you like, even with bluetooth (the model must be compatible with OSX, of course).

-You can turn off the discrete video card, less heat, and battery consumption increases so much (about 3.5 hours Core i7, i5 think more)
