Hi all, after an unsuccessful video card install on my previous hazard 10.6.6i i decided to try with a retail version
I had to find an MBR install fixed version, cause i wasn't able to fix it by myself (...)

this is what i got now after installing it :

bug launchctl.c.3557 snow leo retail

full infos in the attached screenshot image

i'm booting with EFI empire, -v -x -f busratio=20 cpus=1, already tried with platform=ACPI, GraphicsEnabler=No, PCIroot=0 but i get "still waiting for root device" when i use those tags

Those are my specs:
Hp Pavillion dv6-3322el

Microprocessor 2.66 GHz Intel Core i5-480M
Microprocessor Cache 3 MB L3 cache
Memory 6 GB DDR3
Memory Max Upgradeable to 8 GB DDR3
Video Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6550M (1 GB DDR3)
500 GB SATA (7200 rpm)


i'm sooo frustrated after three full weeks.... thanks for any help

the problem is your boot cd, and why you not use method usb for install? and the last chameleon, here one good tutorial for it, use this app in windows and post a screnshot here of we see all your hardware.

thanks for your answer iFire
i'm obtaining a ML copy then i'll proceed with that guide

anyway this is what i got with SystemInfo; it's funny it marks the Graphic card as compatible when there's no kext for it

allright, this is way too much.

i'm not able to install chameleon following that guide, i get Operation could not be completed. (com.apple.installer.pagecontroller error -1.)

i'm not able to install unibea*t, cause the usb installer works too fast (just 10mb to copy instead of the whole installer)

can't find any kext for my graphic card because they just don't exist

strarting to be really upset...

i've installed Hazard 10.6.6i on my HP, and quite everything is fine; the problem is that it doesn't recognise the video card (RADEON HD 6550m), and i need it to work with the hackintosh, otherwise some programs won't run

There are no kext for snow leopard (only some generic Radeon HD kexts, giving kp at boot) but as i've been reading somewhere that from ML on, it is supported i tried installing a retail version.. This is why i'm trying all of this

Screenshots of the error are always helpful.

Following that guide.

I re-started choosing MBR instead of Guid as partition table of my USB stick, now it is recognised and chameleon starts.
Next problem:
This white-pixeled screen is what i get instead of the main installer window. Note that there's no kernel panic (i'm booting with cpus=1, already tried with busratio=20 -v -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes / No PCIroot=0 / 1 )
it also gradually changes colour and the fan start to push quite hard

if you want to get to desktop, you can remove yours Graphics kexts with this command terminal app

boot with -s


mount /
mkdir kext_backup
cd /System/Library/Extensions
mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /kext_backup
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/*
shutdown -R now

fuu is it possible that there's no solution for this?

with the intel integrated graphics kext i found (http://www.osx86.net...ics_latest.html) i've found a little acceleration, now videos are working for example, but i'm still not able to install logic, because there's still no VRAM

isn't there anybody that knows how to

let chameleon recognise the Radeon HD 6550m card instead of the Intel integrated
or
modify those kext (or a fresh dsdt) to make the intel working

it's been a f*kn month i'm trying have a proper hackintosh, that's so frustrating
