Hey InsanelyMac

So im trying to Hackintosh my HP dv6-6134tx with 10.8, and ive been trying to get it working with Chameleon, Chimera, and ###### and I havent really been able to get anywhere with it.

So im wondering if some super awesome person is willing to help a newb with installing it, I realise that hackintoshing a laptop isn't always easy, I dont have much experience with kernals and DSDT's but I figure this is the best place to get it working.


Here are the specs on my laptop.

CPU: Mobile DualCore Intel Core i5-2410M, 2700 MHz (27 x 100)
Motherboard Chipset: Intel Cougar Point HM65, Intel Sandy Bridge
RAM: 4043 MB (DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM)
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000/AMD 6770M
Audio: IDT 92HD81B1X @ Intel Cougar Point PCH - High Definition Audio Controller [B-3]
HDD: TOSHIBA MK5076GSX (500 GB, 5400 RPM, SATA-II)
Network: Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1030

USB2: Intel Cougar Point PCH - USB EHCI #2 Controller [B-3]
USB3: NEC uPD720200AF1 USB 3.0 Host Controller

So first things first, what would the best way to get it installed, I have the 10.8 image and I tried installing on a 8gb USB using Chameleon and Chimera so unless im doing something wrong, I could never get to the installation screen.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Cheers

This system is pretty close to yours and it works:

7.2 ProBook 4530s

If you can't get the installer to boot up, boot in verbose mode (-v) and take a photo of your screen when it stalls and post the photo here.

You'll never get that wifi card to install. I'd recommend an Atheros card. For audio, try the newest version of voodoohda.kext.
