HP Pavilion tx1000 & tx2000 Leo4Allv2 Instructions
  • Downgrade your BIOS to F.04 for the tx2000(ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38256.exe), this is necessary for your sound to work and must be done from within windows.
  • Downgrade your BIOS to F.12 for the tx1000(ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36001-36500/sp36076.exe), this is necessary for your sound to work and must be done from within windows.
  • Press F9 during boot and select to boot from CD (you must do this or you will get the com.apple.boot.plist error)
  • The disk will stop booting at IOAPIC: Version 0x11 Vectors 0:23
  • Double-Tap your Power Button and it will continue loading
  • Format your Partition or Disk using the Disk Utility during setup
  • Click the Customize button before installing & select the following options
  • AMD-System-Fix
  • TimeMachineFix
  • Third Party Drivers
  • Chipset Drivers - nForce2/3/4/5 chipset driver
  • Audio Drivers - AzaliaAudio
  • Graphics Drivers - NVidia Driver - NVinject Go
  • Network Drivers - Forcedeth Driver
  • Let the disk install once it's finished you should have a more or less working install of Leopard
  • Remember to press F9 and choose your Hard Drive to avoid the com.apple.boot.plist error
  • And also remember to Double-Tap your power button to get it to boot
  • Now download the_29's tx1000 package (http://rapidshare.co.../tx1000Pack.zip) and install per the instructions, in a nutshell all of the .kext files need to be installed with the Kext Helper in the Applications folder, and all of the other files have their places as well, just read the instructions and you should be good to go
  • Or you can download wyzazz's .mpkg (http://forum.insanel...t...st&id=26433) and have all the work done for you automatically… …you will still have to manually remove /System/Library/Extensions/IONDRVSupport.kext
This should get you to a mostly working tx1000/tx2000 Leopard Tablet, things that do not work are as follows:
  • Webcam (Blue Light comes on, but picture is always green on tx2000 only)
  • Sound Jacks on front port (No mic, or sound out of jacks 1&2)
  • ACPI Power issue on boot (Double-Tap the power button)
  • ACPI Power issue, cannot boot under battery power (must be plugged in)
  • Screen Calibration does not currently work (on tx2000 only)
  • No QE/CI hardware support
To update your install to 10.5.4 follow the below steps…
  • Download the 10.5.3 update from The Bay of Pirates (10.5.3 Update for AMD Working)
  • Download the 10.5.4 update package and 9.4.0 modbin kernel from this thread (http://leo4all.uni.c....php?f=17&t=269)
  • Download the pcwiz kernel installer (http://forum.insanel...t...st&id=30746)
  • Install the 10.5.3 update then repair permissions with the Extensions_Repair Utility in the Applications Folder and Restart
  • Install the 10.5.4 update then repair permssisons with the Extensions_Repair Utility again and Restart
  • Use the pcwiz kernel installer to install your shiny new kernel, then install the system.kext file using the Kext Installer Utility in the Applications Folder and Restart
That's it! You have a Leopard 10.5.4 Tablet with most of the Bells and Whistles up and running!

Please check the end of this thread for the most recent information related to the tx1000/2000 series laptops. This post may not always be updated as there may not always be time to do so.

P.S. Many thanks to BlueCopter for editing this first post for all of us, and many thanks to the other members of this Forum that have helped us out…

Orginal Post:

I recently got a tx1000z(specs at the bottom of post) and here are my experiences with the hardware compatibility under Leopard AMD 10.5.1 dvd floating around.

Right now i am dualbooting Windows XP(Tablet + Media Center) and Leopard with 2 partitions of equal size.

I plan to continually update this thread with new information as it comes available. Please post if you have a peice of hardware working i will update this post. I will also continue to test and try to get what i can working. Thanks in adavance for any help or guidance anyone can offer. If i left out any hardware devices working or not please let me know. Thanks

I beleive the Touchscreen TouchKit driver below hasn't been posted before because i had to find it on my own. it makes our touchscreen 100% accurate with a calbiration utility. it is very nice

My main priorities are 1280x800 resolution, working audio, and wireless(almost there i think)

also there is a bug on statup when it displayed "ACPI: System State [S0 S3 S4 S5] (S3)" i have to hit my power button or else it will just sit there on bootup. if i hit the power button it will continue to startup and work normally

Working:
NForce MCP51 SATA - Works using new AppleNForceATA.kext Guide to inserting AppleNForceATA.kext into DVD
HardDisk - works with the nforce sata driver
DVD drive - works with the nforce ata driver
5 in 1 media card reader - Works Immediately (only tested SD card)
USB 2 - Works Immediately
Remote Controll - The volume ajustment keys are recognized by the system but no audio. The directional keys and ok button are received by the system seem to work like the directionals on the keyboard
Broadcom Bluetooth - Works Immediately
Webcam - Works Immediatelty
Touchscreen - Works Immediately but couldn't calibrate - Fully working with Calibration using touchkit driver HERE INFO Just install the package the then run touchkit to calibrate the screen
Touchpad - Works after installing ApplePS2 kexts from Install DVD
Keyboard - Works Immediately
Battery Meter - Works with this the attachment from this thread

Partially Working:
Broadcom 802.11 - Recognized after install but can't detect or connect to any wireless ap

Realtek ALC861VD(ALC862) - Got it working using TarugaALC862Installer1.zip or TarugaALC862Installer2.zip from AppleHDA thread HERE. The install packages didn't work so i had to manually install as described HERE. Internal speakers and built in mic work. head phones ports don't work. haven't tested microphone input. Volume keys up and down don't adjust volume but are recognized by the system. mute/unmute button works but stays red like it muted even when its not.

Ethernet - got it working shortly with forcedeth-nock.kext but then when i tried to download a file it crashed and now its not functional again. trying to troubleshoot the problem but i beleive the driver itself is fairly unstable.

Not Working:
Geforce 6150 - I had to remove all Ge* kexts out of my extensions or else i would get a panic on boot. tried macvidia Version 1.0.7, 1.0.8, 1.0.81 and couldn't get any to work. i read only 1.0.7 is the only one that works with 6150 but couldn't get it working. a 1024x768 on some basic driver is all i can get working.

HP QuickLaunch Buttons - Nothing seems to be working.

Fingerprint Scanner - Recognized by system(might just need software)

56k Modem - Not recognized

Untested:
External Monitor + S-Video Output

My Specs:
AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core TL-60 (2.0GHz / 1MB)
12.1" 1280x800 w/Integrated Touch-screen
2GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm)
160GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
Super Multi 8X DVD+/-R/RW w/Double Layer Support
NVIDIA® GeForce® Go 6150
802.11b/g WLAN and Bluetooth - Broadcom chipset
6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
HP Imprint Finish + Fingerprint Reader + Webcam

To supplement with my experience using the Zephyroth 10.5.2 disc, video, audio, and wlan are in the same position, although my touchscreen is not working at all. I will install that calibration package you posted when I get back home where I have access to a system w/ internet while I'm in internetless mac. Thanks for your hard work, and maybe we can get this to be a true mac tablet!

Cool! a 'MacBook Touch' :P
But about the wifi: Would it be possible to replace the WLAN adapter to one that does work with Leopard?

I am happy to say that I am typing this message from my successful Leopard install. I have a Hp tx1220us and everything works except Sound. ^_^ I think its because I used the wrong driver (i wasn't and still am not sure the exact card model I have). Hopefully I will get the sound working to make this a complete success! ;) I wiill also post my methods and steps, making I spread the wealth.

I got it to work after some tweaking and coding, but for some unexpected reason it just stopped working. I am still working on it so that I can post the final product as soon as possible.

I have heard people complaining about the default 1024X768 resolution and I've found a way to get around it and get 1280x800, which is the correct resolution for the tx1000z. The only problem though is after a shutdown my system can never reboot after changing the resolution. Fixing this shouldn't take as much time as it will take getting the video driver working correctly.

Also, I've been getting a lot of messages asking for help. I'm a full time student in university so time is not on my side. Please be patient.

Since I don't have time to make a COMPLETE guide like I promised, I'll give this so many can at the least be using Leopard in the mean time:

How to Install Leopard on Hp tx1000 series

Also, follow this thread for future possibilities of Go 6150 drivers. ;)
The Graphic Drivers are coming soon!

April 23rd - Since this post there have been many more improvements. I will be posting a new installation guide by soon. If you install Leopard before this time, look through this topic to find all the fixes.

Thanks for the guide..

I have TX1410US with following specs..

Dual-Core/800 MHz/L2 /1 MB
2 GBDDR II SDRAM
Serial ATA-150
250 GB - Serial ATA-150 - 5400 rpm
DVD±RW (+R DL) / DVD-RAM

Using Zephyroth 10.5.2 AMD DVD
The DVD boots to welcome screen..I erased the HDD completely to Mac OSX Journaled.

Here are my questions..
-What Kernel should I choose?
~ToH 9.1
~ToH 9.2
-What bootloader options should I choose?
~Bootloader MBR
~Bootloader GUID

The first time I installed..the laptop booted up and had the cursor blinking.

Any suggestions would be helpfull...

I suggest you get Leo4All. I am not sure if you should be using ToH 9.1 or 9.2. For the bootloader, if you are dualbooting you should use GUID, otherwise MBR. If you use Leo4All, it will use the best bootloader for your system.

Thanks you very much. I got a TX1410 a couple of weeks ago and had and install but 1024x768, no graphics acceleration, no wireless, no sound and no touch screen. So I gave up and installed Ubuntu Linux 8.10 which has problems with the ACPI, I would rather use OSX so I will try the Leo4all. How did you get 1280x800 and graphic acceleration? Does the wireless (broadcom 4328 rev 03) work?

Thanks

Guys,

I got this working in late Feb. I posted the you tube video a week or two later . Im excited to see everyone else (who really knows what they are doing, unlike myself) working with this laptop.

I never got audio, wireless, or the screen resolution to work. Also when trying to install some video drivers, my system froze and I could no longer boot into OSX. I got busy with school and havent tried again. After you guys make a little more progress and finals are over I'll probably give it anohter go.

Thanks

I'll 2nd that the_29. I have a tx2000z w/ 4GB RAM, and a 2.4ghz cpu. Dual booting 2003 Enterprise Server and Leo4All OSX Leopard 10.5.2. This 1024x768 Resolution and no sound are really bugging me.

Just as an aside, on the tx2000z:

-Wifi works
-GFX is 1024x768 (not recognized)
-Power Management works with the above mentioned patch
-No sound, not even partial with the above Taruga Manual Install for the ALC862
-No Webcam (Blue light turns on, but no picture)
-No Ethernet
-No 2 finger scrolling with the above mentioned instructions

I thought most of the hardware was the same between the tx1000 & tx2000 models, but I guess there are enough differences that the above doesn't work. If anyone finds fixes for any of this please let us know, and I will do the same. I have been working on this in my spare time.

i keep hearing that macvidia 1.07 works with the 6150 go, but the only version i have been able to get my hands on results in a mostly black screen with some white distortion to the left hand side. i have no previous experience with macvidia and can find little or no instructions. it came with 2 kext files. nvidia.kext and nvdriver.kext. nvdriver has an info.plist inside which i added the 6150 device id to but still no luck. i get the same result with or without my id. i've also tried deleting all nvidia based kexts to remove interfeerence but still the same result. i've read more than once in different forums that this can provide native resolution on the tx1000 series. i'm not sure about the rules for openly posting the macvidia files but if anyone has any idea or is interested i'm more than willing to PM them. Hopefully this will help. Native resolution without CI/QE is better than nothing.

Thanks

Marc

I tried the latest MacVidia and suceeded in making my OSX install unbootable. Hrumphhh, I guess I will wait on someone with more knowledge than myself to get a working driver made up.

I also saw this thread and don't know how I feel about flashing the ROM on my video card, I have to imagine that would really "hork" things up in Windows.
