Apparently you sir did not understand the purpose of my brilliant informative post on this board. Mind I suggest you, continue carefully with your research project. I will, however, warn you: it is obviously not going to reach any successful result in any time soon. My degree in word processing is, in fact, real and as funny as it may sound, you obviously haven't achieved any of your goals at all so might you stop mocking others for their flawless success.


annoying, obnoxious, and unconstructive.

In Topic: Hackintosh on Tablet Question

27 September 2010 - 02:45 AM


just got 10.6.4 to load after going into the info.plist of the intelHD kexts and changing the id's to 428086 instead of keeping it 468086! however, the graphics is still not working, stuck at 1024x768.

just ordered a Broadcom wireless card to switch out the intel 6200 AGN to try to get wireless working. apparently it's the only other draft-N card that isn't whitelisted by the hp 2740p bios. hope snow takes it.

In the next few days i will be ordering a tablet(the HP Elitebook 2740p to be specific).

I am interested in trying to get a hackintosh working on it(tried with my Hexa core AMD Desktop to no avail)...

a few questions though:

-Is there any touch support? i know theres a company out there that makes OSX tablet devices
If not, o well i can just use as a laptop

-Can OSX be installed on say a 10 GB or less partition, and use file directories within Windows 7 for all files?(I will be having an 80 GB SSD, so space is going to be kind of limited on the tablet's drive)

Specs will be: Intel i7-620M
pretty much everything else is about what is stock on the 2740p.....

also, on a side note, anyone able to help me get a hackintosh working on a Phenom II X6 1090T, with a Crosshair III, been trying for a while, cant ever get it to actually work, or get to an install screen.....


i just got a 2740p w an i5-540m + intel hd for graphics and were able to boot into 10.6.3 using iatkos s3 v2 w boot flags "-v busratio=19 -force64" + 10.3.0 kernel, but there's no intel hd nor any usb functionality.

can't update to 10.6.4 due to kp, probably because this update is trying load up the Intel HD which is prob looking for the secondary nvidia card that's in the new macbook pro's (which my hp 2740p doesn't have).

this i3/i5/i7 + Intel HD problem hasn't yet seemed too have been resolved.

anyone have other leads on this??

In Topic: Install on HP Elitebook Issue

Following specs:
i7 620m
wireless N

its a 2740p, the Elitebook tablet

My issue:
I have tried: iDeneb(the 10.6.2 update I believe), Hazard(10.6.2), and iAktos(s3 v2), the one that gets the furthest is iAktos.....my tablet ends up in a reboot, or an endless load

Problems with each distro:
-iDeneb- Endless load, wont fully load
-Hazard- Gets to the alien head screen and then reboots after 10 lines or so of code
-iAktos- Actually gets to the grey apple screen, but reboots after a flash to normal screen

any ideas what I can do to get it up and running? i do not have access to a mac, i'm doing this so i can get aquantied with the software/OS so i can help neighbors(and expand my business from windows lol)

you may have to have AHCI mode enabled in the bios. let me know if this works..

k, ill do atleast 15 then, probably 20, ill be grabing a 16 GB flash drive soon anyhow so that will make the space amount pretty much null and void

is there a way to actually utilize the touch feature?

there's also a company called touch-base.com that builds drivers for touchscreens on all platforms including mac.. you might want to check them out. you can ask them to build you a trial version to see if it works.
