attachicon.gifHackintosh Kexts - HP 1c35dx.zip
Just recently finished my second mostly-successful hackintosh. The only thing that will be required to buy is a wireless card. I'm using a Belkin N150 wireless usb adaptor for now until I can get a replacement card, but it does work great. Everything else works great though. Just thought I'd give a quick rundown of how to get it up and running for others who may be struggling with it.

Hardware - quick summary
CPU: Intel Core i3 -- works! (duh lol)
HDD: Serial ATA -- works!
Wireless: RTL-8188CE (Won't work)
Ethernet: Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (Won't work, but still working on it)
Sound: Altec IDT HDA Audio -- works!
USB: 2.0 -- works!
Audio Ports: Microphone and Headphones -- works!
Web Cam: Hp --Works! (use camera control.app)

1. Installing MyHack to a usb drive

First, thing you want to do is figure out how to get access to a real working mac OR figure out how to get a virtual machine running it.

Now, assuming you got one of those, you will want to download MyHack.

Create an install disc and then click next, click browse and browse for where you downloaded the Mountain Lion OSX installer from the app store. You can scan manually but I just like to be careful.

Let it do it’s thing, it’ll take a while.
Note: It may say installation failed but ignore it. Almost everything you install in this tutorial will say it failed but don’t believe it.

2. Fixing up the MyHack usb
Browse the files of the usb drive and look in both /System/Library/Extensions and /Extras/Extensions/ for AppleIntelHDxxxx.kext and remove them all. They will cause the installer to hang if you don’t remove them. We will fix the graphics after we install later. Now, you can eject the drive and reboot.

3. Booting and Installing
Boot from the drive
And press any key to set boot optons once it says you can and type:
-v cpus=1

If you did it right, in a few minutes you will see the install screen.

From here you can use disk utility to format the partition or the entire disk to HFS+ Journaled.

When you’re done just follow the on-screen prompts and let it install. It’ll say it failed but ignore it.

4. Booting for the first time
Take out the usb drive and let it boot into the Darwin screen. If you installed on a partition, press down on the arrow key to select the partition. Then type again:
-v cpus=1

Now after that’s done, you will have to setup your desktop and user accounts. Just follow the on-screen prompts until you get to your desktop.

5. Fixing all the broken things
Using a usb drive (FAT(32) is compatible with Mac and Windows), download the attachment and extract it to a usb drive. Then load it up in your new hackintosh.

Fix Keyboard and Mouse
Now, you maybe thinking, “I should skip this my keyboard and mouse already work!” but when we install Chameleon in a minute they will stop working. So to prevent this, click the arrow by Miscellaneous and check PS/2 Keyboard/Mice and Trackpad.

Fix Audo
Click on the arrow by Drivers and Bootloaders, the arrow by Audio, and the arrow by Universal, check Voodoo HDA

Fix Mute and volume slider
Go to folder "/System/Library/Extensions" and find the voodooHDA.kext, right click and click "show package contents" then go in "contents" and open info.plist up in a text editor (I used Textwrangler free in the app store). Find the line "VoodooHDAEnableVolumeChangeFix" and change the '<false/> to '<true/>'. Then find the line "VoodooHDAEnableMuteFix" and change the '<false/>' to '<true/>.

6. Chameleon Wizard
Now run Chameleon Wizard and under install choose ‘Boot0hfs’ and select your mac partition and click install.

Next, go to the ‘org.chameleon.Boot’ tab and under CPU check ‘cpus=1’. This will make it so you won’t have to write it everytime you start your hackintosh.

Finally, go to the next tab SMBios and click edit. Drop down the list box under Premade SMBios and select MacBook Pro(8,3) and click save.

Now, restart and you will see the new bootloader and an apple symbol just let it boot. You don’t have to do anything. Finally, login to your desktop.

7. Fix Graphics
Download a program called Kext Wizard and AppleIntelHD3000.kext and using Kext Wizard click on the Installation tab , browse for the above mentioned kext, and check /System/Library/Extensions and click install. Go back to the main page and select the /System/Library/Extensions check box and 2 sub-boxes and click execute. Finally, restart and you should be presented with a much prettier looking desktop. Also, flash wont be all flicker and {censored} anymore!

9. Fix to show Battery Percentage
Open VoodooBattery. It’ll have two kexts AppleACPIPlatform.kext and VoodooBattery.kext.

Next, press Go in Finder and click ‘Go To Folder’ and type /System/Library/Extensions/. Find and delete AppleACPIPlatform.kext if it exists. Then, install the 2 kexts using Kext Wizard.

NOTE: If you want to install the 10.8.2 update, go ahead and do so by pressing the apple in the top left corner and click software update. This battery percentage kext is the only one I had to reinstall after doing the update.

10. Fix Sleep mode
Install SleepEnabler.kext using Kext Wizard.

11. Updating to 10.8.2
After updating you will only need to re-install the battery percentage kext.
Also, to boot without the cpus=1 flag, install this modified kernel.
'lapic_fix Kernel Installer'

It comes in the form of an installer which is nice and convenient! Make sure to uncheck 'cpus=1' in chameleon wizard AND run kextwizard and fix all permissions. Then reboot and all should be good!

Finally restart and...
You're done Have fun! And if you find fixes please share!0129131701a.jpg

if you cant boot at any point make sure to try booting with the -v flag. This means verbose mode and will give you detailed info about everything it's doing and about the error when it gets to it. This way I, someone else, or google can help you.

Update: I have now gotten HDMI and VGA Output to work!
Follow this tutorial:

Note: When I extracted the DSDT originally I got ALOT of errors. I have now fixed it so it compiles correctly and have attached it as dsdt.aml.zip. Download this and skip the first part of the tutorial provided by the link above.

How to install the DSDT
Put the file in the Extra folder and open Chameleon Wizard and under DSDT .aml click the + sign and locate open the .aml that you just put in the Extra folder. Then continue to the hex editing section of the tutorial in the link if you want VGA.

friend you are showing the Hp pavilion g6-1200tu laptop image.....how you're successfully install mac os  x on it please give the tools and kext files for the laptop.....

First of all let me thank @gbrownie for this awesome tutorial! I did everything as stated in this post and it worked like a charm. Here are my laptop's specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5 2430 2.4Ghz-- Works
RAM: 6GB (4GB+2GB) -- Works (lol)
HDD: Toshiba Serial ATA 750GB -- Works
Wireless: BCM4313(Won't work). However I'm using a usb wifi adapter ($7 :P) which has a Ralink chipset. So, not a problem anymore.
Ethernet: Didn't check. But I don't need it anyways.
Sound: Altec IDT HDA Audio -- Works
USB: 2.0 -- Works!
Audio Ports: Microphone and Headphones -- Works
Web Cam: Hp --Works
VGA Out: Works
HDMI: Works

In addition, I was able to patch the kernel so that it will use all the cores of the CPU! (rather than using a single core) So now you don't need to use "cpus=1" anymore!!! :)
Here's how to do it:

Just download Lapic Kernel Patcher from here: 
Install it run it (You will need to be booted up with the cpus=1 in order to do this). Just click on "Patch". It'll show a success popup.
Before rebooting, Open up Chameleon Wizard and remove the cpus=1 boot flag.
Now reboot your machine. Voila! You will be able to use the full potential of your machine's CPU.
Here's how I got to know about it:



and, here's a screenshot for you guys to show that it's actually working ;)
