Hi,

i just buy a laptop, an Hp pavilion dv6 6b41sf.
I made the mountain lion installation without much problems, i use the basic kernel and the real apple installer not a distrib.
I don't have a dsdt because i had one picked on another dv6 but with others components, so i deleted it...
Since the begining some things doesn't work:

Wifi (broadcom BCM94313, is in fact 4313)
No sound at all --------working now with a kext
Ethernet----working now with a kext
Second graphic card (the ati one)
And the geekbench score is bad...2200 in 32 bit test (i think there is something wrong)
Another thing, in the system info about my proc L3 cache, it show 768ko, in fact that is 3mo...----working now with a modded kernel.
About the smbios.plist i made a basic one from the macbook pro 8.1

I put here my chameleon.plist, and the laptop description...maybe that can be usefull...

Thank you all for your help!

Also you will need to extract your DSDT and begin editing it to get everything working properly such as sleep and shutdown etc...

Follow my guide here to extract your DSDT:

thanks for the plist!
The sleep already work, i use a kext and i patch the applertc.
But for the dsdt i don't know which patch to use etc...i'm a little lost...i already made a Hackintosh, but that was a more classic hardware, on this one i don't even find a dsdt of someone else with the exact same laptop.

Install this DSDT in your extra folder and then reboot. THen post an IOreg (using the IOreg app) so I can apply other edits.

If you can not boot with this DSDT boot with:

DSDT=No

Note this is case sensitive

The chameleon documentation refers to DSDT=none, rather than DSDT=no.
If one doesn't work, try the other.

DSDT=No works the same.

Hey veda and HereToHelp :)

I have an HP Pavilion DV6-6B55SG.

Intel® Core™ i7- 2670QM Prozessor [4x 2,20 GHz]
AMD Radeon HD 6770M [DDR5 2GB] + Intel HD 3000
6GB [DDR3 1333MHz]
1x 500GB HardDisk

Your GeekBench score is so bad because your HackBook is only working with 1 core of your CPU ( because of your bootflag "cpus=1").
I know when your starting without cpus=1 you will get a kernel panic.
But there is a patched kernel for Mountain Lion.
So you wont need to start with cpus=1 and your HackBook will work with all of your cores and will get a better score at geekbench.
Try one of these two -> http://www.osx86.net...fix_for_ml.html

My Ethernet works out of the box without installing anything.
But this should help you -> http://www.osx86.net...d_mt._lion.html

You have the same Wifi Card as me, i have searced a lot and it seems like our card BCM4313 is not supported at all.
But you can try these here:
http://www.osx86.net...es_airport.html
http://www.osx86.net...oadcom_fix.html

Tell me please if you get it working and I will tell you if I get it working ;)

@veda
Can you explain me in detail how you got your sleep working?

@HereToHelp
Can you please help me, too?
My sound is not working and i have only the same information as veda.
On Windows it showed that it is a IDT HD device.

This showed me System Info:

Mountain Lion detects both of my cards but it seems to use only the onboard one Intel 3000.
Is there any way to tell ML to use my ATI card?

I also added my dsdt.aml which I created following your guide.

I hope we can help each other :)

VoodooTSCSync.kext should fix the CPUS=1 issue. I do not recommend using a modded kernel. Also about using the onboard ATI card. If you can turn off the Intel card in the BIOS then you can use it. Other wise you are out of luck. I will look at your DSDT. Could you also post an IOreg.

Should I use the DSDT you posted in the attachment or my own?

And in which format should I save the IOreg?
I just have to open the app and the click on File and save as, or?

For sound do some research on what chipset the sound card is for your laptop.

About using the onboard ATI card. If you can turn off the Intel card in the BIOS then you can use it. Other wise you are out of luck.



For the

Battery you need to use the

voodoobattery kext.

Also make a SSDT by following my guide here:
