I found a DSDT for your laptop. I'll patch it and upload it in a little while.

Here's the DSDT I patched for you. Hopefully this'll at least allow booting the system.

 

Place it in the /Extra folder in the USB drive you're using to boot.

cpus=1 -f -v (and maybe -x too if it fails to boot).

If I boot with cpus=1 -f -v I get the same text when you said a lot of errors.

If I add -x I get USBF...

Ok, I'm out of ideas now. Install windows and keep a partition empty for experimenting with OS X.

For installing Windows, how I do ? Because the HDD is in Mac OS Extended.

Do you have FakeSMC on the USB drive?

 

As for installing Windows, delete all partitions using the Windows installer and re-create new ones.

You *must* have it on the USB!!

Unless it was installed with the system (as part of a custom installer) 

 

Edit: You're using original image so you must add fakesmc to the /Extra/Extensions on the USB.

Hey Guys,

Well done to Adrien on the completion of the hackintosh

 

I see Dr. Hurt you seem to have alot of knowlege here, i have the same laptop i believe, HP Envy 4-1050ca 8gig ram and have been geeting so far as the install and boot screen to setup language etc finish off installation, but could only boot up in -x safemode, now i seem to have fallen back a few steps to trying to get back to booting after i have actually installed.

 

Could you help?

 

Both ssd 32gig and 500gig are formatted to hfs+ tried on both to install and have been succesfull on the 500gig boot but would like the ssd to boot prefable if it is faster?

 

Any help would be great!

 

Cheers
