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.
