The HP Pavilion DV6, A suitable Macbook Pro?
This is my photo demonstration of <edit>10.8! Mountain Lion DP3/GM i don't know which</edit> working on an HP Pavilion DV6-3132TX. This is means as an example of what can be achieved with Hackboot and a retail copy of Lion + the Mountian Lion DP3 app. If anyone else is interested in attempting to replicate this, send me a message and i will give you as much help as I can.

I use this as the main OS on the machine, It runs stable and quiet and, In my opinion, better than windows. I also think that the style of the laptop rather compliments the OS, they match, and I think that this laptop makes an ideal alternative to the Macbook Pro.

How I did it:
I installed iAtkos L2
downloaded the developer preview from apple using my developer account
installed it
downloaded and installed Chameleon 2.1RC SVN and installed it
used a post install tool that shal not be named to install userDSDT and NullCPUPowerManagement
rolled back the AppleHDA kext
used a driver form google for resolution using the screen ID

What Works:
Display Resolution (QE/CI is coming soon)
Sound (Intel HDA)
Wi-Fi A/B/G/N
Bluetooth
Ethernet
all USB ports
all 4 cores, no hyper threading
Webcam (Using manycam)

What doesn't work:
Fingerprint Scanner
HP Mediasmart Buttons (Not a real issue, you just can open the non-existant software with the buttons)
3+ finger multitouch (2 finger scrolling works fine)

Photos:
Sorry about the quality, my Galaxy SII isn't the best camera :P

I Have a HP Pavilion DV6 1340ss and I can't install iAtkos L1 =( When i put the DVD and the computers starts to read it, a message appears on my screen requesting to shutdown. With another and old DVDs (1 year ago) I was able to install it but not to enter the system. May you help me please? I see that you did it on your laptop. I could install the same DVD on another two PC in my house.

PS: Sorry for my very bad english...

I'm definitely interested in this, as i have the presumably similar HP DV6-3032TX with Core i7-720QM.

Could you please supply some helpful links on how to do the install ?

I have the lion application ("Install Mac OS X Lion") as downloaded from the app store, is this the same as 'a retail copy of lion' ? (or can it be converted into one?)

thanks in advance

To anyone interested in this post, I would love to help, and if you have a laptop with similar hardware to mine (i7 720QM, 4-8gb of ram,) and a pretty good knowledge of computer systems and BIOS settings, message me for help

i've got i5 dv6 can you help me??

Sorry, the Core i5 is a fickle processor in mobile terms for hackintosh, Thats why i payed the extra for a core i7 Pavilion in the first place.

my hardware uses the first generation i7 (720QM), i cant lend any assistance relating to the newer gens of intel Core i processors as i have not yet had a chance to use one. if anyone wants to send me a core 13, 15 or 17 2xxx/3xxx laptop to get lion working, feel free xD

my web address should be in the sig

My model of DV6 (3132-TX) does not have USB 3.0, however, in Lion 10.7.3+ there is a BETA driver available.

You might be interested in my latest work, im trying to get Mountain Lion (10.8.x) on my laptop, this should help you due to native support for the 2nd and 3rd gen Core i3, i5 and i7 processors.

more to come shortly

Try with the Chimera bootloader for QE/CI.

Tried it, didnt work. So far the best method with the HD5650 on ML is framebuffer. Chimera allowed injection and QE/CI only in 32-bit mode under Lion, seeing as ML does not support 32-bit mode, its useless.
