Hey guys! I'm going right to the point...I have an HP laptop (shame on me!) and I think it's the most problematic laptop where install Mac OS. I have a HP Pavilion DV6 3104sl with Intel I5 460m, Ati 5650, 4gb Ram, atheros 9285 and some other stuff that I don't think really deserve to know(If i am wrong, say me and I will tell you.
THe point is I can install only Snow leopard 10.6.3...I want almost 10.6.8! When I try to update the version(I did it in 1000 ways: Using some "BEAST", copy and paste kext ecc...!) it stuck to "NTFS Volume Name....Version 3.1................It's frustrating!
Well, I try with Iatkos L2M, first it goes but at the next restar it stuck to ioplatform kernel panic...So I decide to reinstall it...And ladys and gentleman the DVD stuck on the fisrt screnn(yes, the first screen when it says "Press f8 to enter boot ecc...") and he don't go ahed! SO I try Iatkos ML2...the same! He install it the first time then it stuck on the first screen...Well, I supposed there is a bootloader problem so I download some stuff(R Boot LE) and try to start from then...It make me see some line in a fraction of second and return on the bootloaeder...The same on Iatkos l2m and Iatkos ML2...I try Lion Retail (my father has mac, I use his version) and he gave me "Local Apic Error"...I5 supposed to be native so I don't get what he want! I try with Mountail Lion (kindly offer by my father)...Same error!
Finally I try Niresh Lion and Mountain Lion! Lion don't start like Iatkos version...Mountain Lion start...Install it...And a few moment to complete the installation say me "installation failed!"...DOH!

So I think I try the possible and the impossible...The only think that remain to me is YOU!
Thanks for everty single replies I get!

Thank for the reply man! The problem with Iatkos is that It doesn't start! It stuck to screen where is the "countdown" and ask you to enter f8 to see the option...and if I enter f8 or any key or I wait the countdown end it frezzes!
I'm going to be crazy!

I try the with another guide from Iatkos for Iatkos ML2 but same problem, my drive is not bootable! I install in each guide the boot loader in the drive like they ask me but also with other bootloader my pcdon't read my drive or it read only Niresh drive but during the installation it stucks to "Appleusbehci Uiminitialize...error occurred ecc." I also try with differents flags (USBBusix, EHCIacquire ecc.)
My laptop is
I5 460m 2,53ghz
4 gb ram
Intel hd graphics/AMD mobility radeon 5650 HD
Atheros 9285 Wireless
