Sharing my experience with OS X on

HP DC7700

Posted Image

Firstly, remember you should replace the integrated Intel card with another one via PCIe.

Now download my package.

What it contains?


AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext - PS/2 Kext

ApplePS2Controller.kext - PS/2 Kext

fakesmc.kext - FakeSMC kext (which emulates SMC device) edited to works better on Core 2 Processors

Intel82566MM.kext - Intel 825xx Ethernet Kext

Other files

org.chameleon.Boot.plist -

SMBios.plist - Use it at installation only. After that you can use what you want

SSDT.aml - SSDT which generates C & P States successfully

DSDT.aml - DSDT fixed and patched by me

Patch list:

  • DTGP
  • HDEF (experimental)
  • EHCI (don't need to delete AppleHPET.kext)
  • ICH8 LPC (to fix some errors with AppleLPC)
  • IRQs (to fix restart)
  • SHUTDOWN (to fix shutdown)
  • SATA (don't need to change device id in AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext)
  • SMBUS (recognized as ICH10 to fix errors with AppleSMBusPCI)
  • RTC (to fix errors with AppleRTC)
  • PBTN: _HID changed to _CID to get sleep working by pressing the power button
  • Some cosmetic patches
Known issues/problems:
  • Integrated card does not work
  • I haven't tried AppleHDA
  • SATA is a bit buggy because the motherboard doesn't support AHCI mode. For example, you cannot eject the Disc Reader by clicking on the icon (on the menubar)
  • Sleep doesn't tried. (i have integrated card only, sorry)

Pre-Installation / Installation
  • Create the USB with OS X 10.7/10.8 installer.
  • Copy DSDT.aml, SSDT.aml, org.chameleon.Boot.plist and SMBios.plist to USB/Extra.
  • Install fakesmc.kext in the USB Drive.
  • If you have PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard, install also AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext.
  • Turn on the PC, and boot into the usb.
  • Press 'Enter' to your USB Drive.
  • Install OS X on your drive.

  • Return to the OS X USB installer and click Utility -> Terminal.
  • Now, execute this commands:
    	cp -R /Volumes/(USB)/Extra /Volumes/(Mac OS X Drive)/Extra
    	cp -R /Volumes/(USB)/System/Library/Extensions/fakesmc.kext /Volumes/(USB)/Extra /Volumes/(Mac OS X Drive)/System/Library/Extensions/fakesmc.kext	
    - OPTIONAL for PS/2 USERS -
    	cp -R /Volumes/(USB)/System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext /Volumes/(USB)/Extra /Volumes/(Mac OS X Drive)/System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
    	cp -R /Volumes/(USB)/System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /Volumes/(USB)/Extra /Volumes/(Mac OS X Drive)/System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext

  • Reboot with the USB Drive, but now press 'Enter' to your installed drive.
  • Now install Intel82566MM.kext to your drive to get Ethernet card working.
  • AUDIO: This is the AppleHDA.kext patched for this PC. I tried this kext but i cannot get the sound card working. (I added the HDEF Device, don't worry about that). If you cannot use AppleHDA.kext, use instead VoodooHDA.kext (should work good).
  • Reboot, and you should get all working.

Note: i haven't this PC anymore, that was of a my friend. That was my experience about this pc.

Confirmed with 10.8.3, I did some more HDEF DSDT edits and cannot get sound to work, tried VoodooHDA and it works but the sound is very low.

I have a $2 USB sound card that works OOB so i am using that.

Only extensions in /Extra FakeSMC.kext, Intel8266MM.kext and Sleepenabler.kext

Other then built in sound everything works, GeekBench score is 3400, not a fast machine but good for general purpose web, word documents and social media stuff.

Sound does work under Mountain Lion with the procedure & files here:


I did not need or use the HDAEnabler.kext, but I did patch the HDEF section of the DSDT as shown. Unfortunately, I could not get it to work under Lion, but VoodooHDA v 0.2.1 seems to work just fine.

I used the install method in this guide:
