In Topic: HP DV7-1020us Webcam

24 October 2010 - 04:51 AM

I am running SL 10.6.3 now and have fixed USB support with A DSDT.aml file. The light beside the webcam activates and the camera dropdown for Photobooth shows "Logitech Camera", but I still only have a black display.

The only thing different in system profiler is the current required (mA): which is now set at 500 since it has been recognized.

I know this is posted quite a long time ago but try using Cam-twist for mac and add your webcam. Leave the program on and try using photo booth. This is how my webcam was recognized in photo booth.

Can I have your DSDT if you use one? We have very similar laptops if not exact (mines Dv7 1211-tx with 2.66 ghz and normal DVD drive) because im having trouble with my hardware. random USB start up problems and sound not working.

Hope my info helps.

Thanks to this DSDT I can get my DV7 1211tx to boot.Graphics work extremely well or even perfect (9600m gt) BUT l don't have USB support unless I enter in chameleon "USBBusFix=Yes". sound support unless I install voodooHDA but I'd prefer to find a more vanilla way of enabling it, and I don't have keyboard or mouse/track-pad support unless I use a USB mouse. Mammoth has a great tutorial and method to installing SL on a HP laptop.

In Topic: Snow Leopard wont boot without retail disc?

18 September 2010 - 07:15 AM

It is a laptop by the way, forgot to mention that and as a laptop you don't get many options like a tower. The only important options in the bios is to change the boot order. The HDD's are connected SATA based and I think the DVD drive is SERIALATAPI based if i know my terminology. Chameleon is installed to one of the two HDD's. The problem has gotten weirder now. The booting issue with the snow leopard disc is solved now. (I forgot that chameleon was booting of the CD drive, silly mistake.) But now it's booting from the HDD. I can't boot into snow leoaprd without it saying SERIALATAPI reconfiguration error.

Yes I have tried this, it works now but didn't many times before. Thanks JBraddock
But this only solves one of my issues.
I still need help solving the usb issue, booting into osx without the install CD issue and the windows installation issue.

Help is appreciated.

I am currently having a lot of trouble installing SL onto my laptop. I have a HP DV7 1211 TX. Specs are as follows.

System Model: HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC
BIOS: Default System BIOS
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T9550 @ 2.66GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.7GHz
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
Memory: 4096MB RAM
HDD: 2x 400GB Toshiba Drives

I can't install windows 7 because of the partition style (GPT), I can't boot into SL without the Install Disc (not the boot disc), it always stops at a certain message and its just frozen in the '-v' screen. When i try to boot into SL (without the install disc) it won't boot because of the "Loaded HFS+ file: [System/library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist]" issue. Repairing, verifying or both and boot commands don't work.

I should mention that this happens on both versions of the boot discs 1.15 and the version before it. I have lost usb support since using 1.15.

Am I doing something wrong? Help would be heavily appreciated.
