First, I would like to thank the original poster (Iceman) for sharing his knowdlege. This original post (on top of this thread) inspired me to try installing OSX on my HP 2510p.
I am a newbie when it comes to Hackintosh but I will share my experience thus far.
I used MyHack 3.2.1 (http://myhack.sojugarden.com
) to create a USB image of the retail version of OSX Lion 10.7.2 (the torrent equivalent which should substitute for the retail copy, if you do not have an Apple store in your country and you want to walk on the grey side, is "Mac.OSX.Lion.10.7.2-Addict").
Using MyHack and Iceman's graciously provided "Extras" file (included in his original post) I was able to install OSX Lion 10.7.2 on my HP 2510p (I have 2 GB of RAM, considering upgrading it to 4 GB if I can stabilize OSX). The display came up perfect, the resolution was excellent, and it even looked clearer (to me) on the 2510p than Linux Ubuntu or Windows XP.
During the install I was able to use the 2510p's built-in keyboard and touchpad... however after the first boot when I needed to configure the timezone and such the keyboard was not responding (the trackpad still was). As you may know, OSX will not let you install unless it detects a keyboard present, so the install just sat there until I plugged in a USB keyboard into the USB port on the left side of the 2510p (the USB port on the right side did not seem to work) which it detected and let me proceed with the installation. After the initial installation OSX was once again able to recognize the laptop's built-in keyboard and I did not need the external USB keyboard anymore.
When the machine booted up I still was not able to get OSX to recognize the right side USB port, but I was able to use a USB 2.0 hub (multiplier) in order to hook up both an external keyboard and mouse to the 2510p and had them both working (in addition to the 2510p's built in keyboard and mouse). Thus, we need to figure out why the right side USB port is not working (it works in Ubuntu Linux and Windows XP, so it must be a software issue).
During the first boot the fans of this mini laptop were running at full speed and it was VERY LOUD (even after the installation, when the machine was idle). Luckily, during the subsequent boots the 2510p's fans were quiet and normal (almost making no sound, which is excellent).
The next thing I tried was to plug in an external monitor via the VGA port. The 2510p has a Function (Fn) keyboard combination whichi turns on the external display. This is a bit flaky but when I close the 2510p's lid I can view the screen on the external monitor at excellent resolution. For a while I was able to do a dual screen setup (where I could seemingly drag applications from one screen to the other with the display showing on both screens), but I haven't extensively experimented with this yet.
Here are the current problems I'm trying to address:
After the install the on-board wired (copper) NIC card is not working. The NIC appears to be the Intel 82566MM Gigabit Network Card. It seems we need the correct driver for OSX 10.7.2 for this NIC to work. Doing some web searches, I found found the following sites which talk about various versions of the Intel 82566MM driver but seemingly for different versions of OSX (one of the links talks about the correct driver for 10.7.2 but the 64 bit version... for the 2510p we need the 32 bit version, I believe).
If anyone can point me toward the compiled version of the Intel 82566MM driver for OSX 10.7.2 the 32 bit version I would appreciate it.
Next, it does not appear the Bluetooth is working out of the box. Further research needs to be done to understand the bluetooth aspect. If we can get Bluetooth working then the next goal would be to get the Apple Magic Trackpad working (I'm not sure if that's possible, but it's an idea I've seen others on this forum make work).
I understand the internal WiFi (wireless) is not an option, so I will have to look at the USB WiFi adapter approach (my priority for now is getting the hardwired NIC card working, but the Wi-Fi is a "nice to have"). Another idea would be to use the PCMCIA slot wireless adapter, but it doesn't seem OSX is recognizing that either so I'm not sure how to proceed with that.
I am also looking to understand if I can use a docking station (port replicator) with OSX on the 2510p. I don't have a docking station to test with but I am wondering how OSX would react if I tried to use one). More research needs to be done on this front.
I will have to get the sound working per Iceman's posting ("VoodooHDA" is involved, further research is necessary).
Interestingly, when I abrupty pull the power cable from the laptop it immediately either goes to sleep or freezes (not sure which one yet). It should run on battery when the cable is pulled, maybe this is just a power management setting, further research is necessary.
Please respond to this message if anyone has any tips or tricks relating to OSX on the 2510p as it would make for a wonderful Apple replacement.
