Welcome dv6000 and dv9000 enthusiasts!

I love my dv9000 and would love it even more if I could get MAC OS X and Final Cut Pro to work on it in a tri-boot configuration with Windows MCE 2005 and Vista Ultimate x64. So far, I have the MCE and Vista working flawlessly, now I just need to iron out the MAC side of things, and at this writing, I am not even able to get the MAC OS to boot on my machine.

At present, I have a hard drive dedicated as the only drive in the system for MAC OS X, 10.4.8, and I have gone through many of the issues others have had such as the ACPI Panic and the infinite blinking cursor on boot up, and so forth.

I have followed the instructions found elsewhere in the IM forums, taking the original 10.4.8 jaS ISO, then applying the .V1P patch and then the Defiant_diskutil_7 patch, but no go as of yet for me. When I attempt to boot, I get the off-white background with the Apple logo with the spinner below it for a few moments... then my screen goes black, the fans kick up, and if I let it sit long enough, my machine gets really hot. I have no other recourse but to hold in the power button to shut the machine down.

So, let this be a place where we can work together to pool our knowledge and get MAC OS to work as flawlessly on our machines as possible, maybe even accomplishing an OS installation that is viable.

I've got a dv6119us, and so far the only way to install is via external hd. (usb)
without external hd, the install disc seems to go into a loop because it cannot find the harddrive. Most of the newer laptops have SATA hds within them, and I know that the dv6119us has the nforce chipset (nf4), perhaps your laptop does also. If that is the case, I'd recommend getting yourself a nice fast external usb hd to install OSX on. (check tigerdirect.com for cheap ones.) once installed to the external hd, you can use "dd" to image it to an internal hd as soon as the SATA bug is fixed within your installation.

Interesting. I do have SATA drive, I wonder if that's my problem? I will have to try and see, as others do not seem to be having the problems I am. I have a couple of USB drives I can try. I don't have the nForce chipset as my unit is full Intel.

Thanks very much!

Hi Mammoth, I have a dv9000t CTO that is virtually identical to yours. I'm a complete newbie to macs (especially on x86) but thought I'd share that I am at exactly the same point as you are:

I installed JaS 10.4.8 onto a external USB drive as debauchery1st suggested. I boot up, I see the offwhite apple screen and then the video mode attempts to switch and I get a black screen. The CPU fan starts up and the computer is obviously very worked up about something. Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock, and the touchpad deactivation button all do nothing, indicating that the machine is pretty much locked up.

All of that sounds exactly like what you (Mammoth) described.

I disabled every single feature in the BIOS to see if things changed, no luck.

Finally I switched off my wireless card via the front switch. Rebooting does the same sequence except at the black screen if you wait just a few seconds I get a new screen: "You must reboot your computer".. it boots up that same way on reboot.

Anyway, good luck to the both of us, and PLEASE post back here if you get this working.

EnigmaCurry

Found something new:

Holding down the shift key is "safe mode" for the mac. I still get the black screen on bootup but on my router I see that a new computer has requested an IP! I can ping it and it gives back replies. I did a portmap with nmap and here is all that got returned:

Interesting ports on 192.168.1.128:
Not shown: 1678 closed ports
PORT STATE SERVICE
5000/tcp open UPnP


I can't do much else with the thing since there isn't anything usefull (ie SSH) to connect to. But it does appear to be running, and the CPU load is obviously lower since the CPU fan isn't running hard at this point.

Thanks EnigmaCurry for sharing!

Ok, so now I know it's not just me, or my machine; it sounds like there is some hardware 10.4.8 doesn't like. I have been beating my head against the wall trying to get this thing to work ('til 3:30 AM the other other night!)

Question: You say you were able to boot from external USB drive? How did you do that? I can't get my dv give me a 'boot from usb drive' entry on the ESC boot menu. I see it in the BIOS, but I can't engage it for some reason. If you could help, that would be really awesome.

Ok, I'm going to keep pounding away at it and will post successes and info here.

Thanks!

Hi Mammoth, Good News!

I'm making this post from within 10.4.8!

Here's what I did:

1) Reinstalled completely, this time to the local hard drive on the first partition (second partition is Ubuntu Linux)
2) Chose *NOT* to install any special video driver.

After rebooting, it immediately worked. The quality of the display was the same as when it was installing. 1024x768... only problem is at that point although it looks great at first, if you drag windows around or use scroll bars in windows it immediatly mucks up the screen with artifacts.

Next, I installed NVidiaEFI.kext. With that I got a whitescreen instead of a black screen.. not good. (Download 1.0.2 here)

Next, I installed LaptopDisplay.kext.. same whitescreen.. no good (Download 1.0.0d1 here)

Next following the advice on the Titan wiki page I removed NVDAResman.kext from /System/Libarary/Extensions

I removed /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache and Extensions.mkext

I modified my /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist to contain the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.
com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string></string>
<key>Boot Graphics</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1680x1050x32</string>
</dict>
</plist>


Now I have things working quite well.. 1680x1050 doesn't actually work yet.. but changing the resoultion did bump it from 1024x768 to 1280x1024, which is better.

As far as booting from usb, I don't know what to tell you, as it has always just worked for me. Maybe your usb disk doesn't support booting? Does it work on any other computer?

Good luck!

Wow Congrats EnigmaCurry! You're probably the first to get it working! :dance_24:

Well, I just don't get it. I've tried to do as you have, but do not get the successful results you do.

I turned off my wireless card with the slide switch on the front. I reinstalled (MANY times) but on boot, now it just locks at the Apple logo screen with the spinner frozen. Here is what I have:

dv9000t CTO
Core 2 Duo T7200
2GB RAM
Intel 1Gb LAN
Intel wireless
nVidia Go GeForce 7600 w/ 512MB

BIOS:
Version F.15

System Configuration:
SATA = Enabled
Button Sound = Disabled
Virtualization = Disabled
CPU C4 Function = Enabled

(I have tried with all of these disabled, but did not seem to help)

Boot Options:
CD-ROM Boot = Enabled
Floppy Boot = Disabled
Internal Network Boot = Disabled

Boot Order:

ATAPI
USB Hard Drive
USB Floppy
USB Diskette
!Network Adapter

When I install MAS OSX x86, I am using the jaS 10.4.8, patched as previously mentioned. I install with the fallowing settings:

Install as only OS on the SATA 100GB drive (partition, erase, install)

I sellect:

- All fonts
- no languages
- Intel processor
- Most common components
- NO additional video drivers (I have tried numerous times WITH the nVidia Titan, with no luck)


PLEASE... someone help me figure this out and AT LEAST get me to a booted OS. :tomato:

I'm BEYOND insanity at this point and SOOOOOO much wasted time...

My wife ---> Quit messing with that :) computer you dummy!!!!


Thanks.

:(

Ok here is some more info on my issue:

I used the -v -x parms on boot up and it seems mine is stopping right after the following:

- AppleIntel8254XEthernet
-
- localhost Directory Service[55]: Launched version 2.1 (v353.5)
- localhost /System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/MacOS/loginwindow: Login Window Application Started

and then I get nothing else... it's hung there.

EnigmaCurry: Do you have Intel or Broadcom network components in your machine?

By the way, I have the wireless switch turned ON. Having it off prevents booting.

I also didn't do anything to patch the JaS 10.4.8 iso.. maybe your patches are doing somthing weird?

2 questions,

1. What nvidia chip is present within your notebook?
2. Were you able to get QE/CI working?

EnigmaCurry: When you get a chance, could you do me a small favor? Boot your jaS DVD and let it go to the install screen. Does yours say "Beta v2"?

If not, could you please share the link where you got your .ISO from? Maybe that IS my problem.

Thanks.

SUCCESS!!!!!!

At last! Ok, I have entered this posting from within 10.4.8!

Ok, what was my problem? I guess sometimes even I can be a fricken idiot! I WAS using Custom installation, but I wasn't UNSELECTING drivers I DIDN'T need at install. :)


Ok, so now I guess I get to start tweaking. First thing I would like to do is get audio working.

debauchery1st,

I'm a noob, so I don't even know what QE/CI would gain me, but the "About this Mac" -> "More Info" -> "Graphics/Drivers" states that both Core Image and Quartz Extreme are not supported.

I have a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 (Device ID is 0x0398)

Things I'd like to get working that are not:
1) Sound
2) Higher Resolution (something that is not a stretched image would be nice)
3) When I type "clear" in the terminal, about 50% of the time I get a "Bus Error" and then shortly after a black "You must reboot your computer screen".. would be nice if I could fix that.
4) QE/CI .. sounds cool..
5) Wireless


also interesting is that it reports that I have a 256MB video card when in fact it is 512MB.

Ok, I had the chance to try this on another dv9000, a dv9260nr, which has an nVidea GeForce Go 7600 with only 256MB (mine has 512MB like EnigmaCurry's). There is an nVidia sticker on the laptop that says "PureVideo HD"; this laptop has an HD DVD drive. I don't know if this means the video card is physically different than ours, or it is just a reference to some software or driver component. What is interesting is that I was able to install JaS 10.4.8 on the dv9260nr using the Titan driver on the DVD and it worked perfectly, and at a much higher resolution (sorry, I didn't check the actual resolution). Not being a Mac guy, I saw some "cool" visual effects while in use, windows "whisping" down as I minimized them and when filling out the initial registration pages on install, each page appeared on the face of a box or cube and rotated to another side as I completed each page. Very nice!

When I took the drive out of that machine and put in my dv9000t CTO, uh, oh; I just kept getting the "shutdown with the power switch screen". I had to reinstall, from scratch again, and to make a long story short, it would NOT install with the Titan drivers, had to uncheck them to get a successful install. Now, no cool effects, no high resolution, and I have the "artifacts" EnigmaCurry mentioned.

So my thought is that perhpas the only real difference is that the Titian drivers can't handle 512MB of ram. I don't think there is any difference (but I may be wrong about this) between our nVidia cards and the one sporting "PureVideo HD".

On a differnt note:

EnigmaCurry: My bluetooth seems to be working (but havent actually done anything with it), I see the bluetooth symbol at the top of the screen.

Also, my wireless light is on (on the front) but can't figure out how to configure, let alone use it. It's an Intel, so I have high hopes of getting it working.

I REALLY need to get sound working, but I have seen that it may be impossible.

There are no drivers for intel wireless chips
you should consider getting an external one

I just installed JAS 10.4.8 on my new DV922US. It has Core 2 Duo 1.6, 2 GB Ram, GeForce Go 7600 256 MB, dual 80 GB hard drives. I think I have the original DVD with natit. I installed with only natit and intel patches selected. I had CI and QE and full resolution support on 1st reboot. Patched audio (working) and also Power Management so I have battery status. Wired LAN works out of the box and from what I understand there is no fix for intel wireless at this point. CPU is properly detected, both cores working with no sign of stuttering. I'm not sure if the fan is running at full speed but it definitely runs at a constant speed & hasn't revved down ret as far as I can tell. I haven't tested card reader, burner, webcam or PC slot. So far so good though... looks very promising for intel HP Laptops

I just installed JAS 10.4.8 on my new DV922US. It has Core 2 Duo 1.6, 2 GB Ram, GeForce Go 7600 256 MB, dual 80 GB hard drives. I think I have the original DVD with natit. I installed with only natit and intel patches selected.

Thade your GeForce Go 7600 256 MB with Natit drivers don't have a "banding" problem on a shadings of colors??

no banding that I can detect here... Having been through a few 22" monitors notorious for banding, I'm a pretty good judge of it

Hi,

I have a HP Pavilion DV6110ca.
Specs are here:
Specs for DV6110ca

I am pretty newbie here. However, thanks to this thread and some others, I have been able to install Jas 10.4.8 for AMS / Intel SSe2 SSe3 patched on an external USB hard drive and with a USB mouse. I have only selected AMD.

Keyboard of the laptop does not respond. I need to find a USB keyboard.

However, I can boot on my USB hard drive with the command
-v -x parms
until the login window, but cannot enter the password since I don't have any working keyboard yet. Normal boot does not work.

Hope it helps for some of you. Feedback would be appreciated if you experience similar issues.

Thanks and all the best,

Don.
