Hey Guys... found some time to write the next chapter of my guide ;) ... This chapter is about how to install Lion and Windows 7 on a GUID Partition...
--- Chapter 3 - Dual Booting Lion and Windows 7 on GUID Partition ---
Since it's quite a while, that i've done this... i've only remember the basic steps..
In the last step we've installed lion - and we've created a second partition in MS-DOS format while installing lion using the lion installer usb stick.
Windows 7 won't install on that native GUID Partition, if you insert a Windows 7 CD or Boot Stick and try to install it, you'll see ;)
Windows 7 needs a MBR entry on your harddisk - to get one you'll need gptsync.
I'll remember there's a mac version floating around somewhere, but the version that i've tried didn't worked so i did it using a Ubuntu Live CD.
Get the Ubuntu 10.04 Installer here - we'll only need it to boot up the live linux system from it - no need to install l...
--- Chapter 2 - Installing Lion 10.7.x ---
this is Chapter 2 of my guide, it's on how to install lion 10.7.x, in my case 10.7.2.
This guide is based on many of those guides flowing around in these forums,
so i won't describe *every* step i did, i only write about the ones you'll need to care about or the steps you have to add, to get it working on your hp 8530p/w.
Basically you can use the guide posted by mald0n here:
Mainly all guides are depending on an running mac os x somewhere... but what do you do if you don't have a running mac os x?
There are some solutions, maybe you can try to put the Lion Install dmg to your USB Drive using a windows tool or something like that....
But my way was to install Mac OS X to a VMware device and putting the Install.dmg from there to my usb stick (as shown my mald0n).
There are plenty of tutorials out there, how you can install a Mac OS X in VMware, google it!
Okay in m...
--- Chapter 1 - Modifiying the HP8530p ---
Hey Guys, here's the first part of my guide. This is not about installing Mac OS X, this is about modifiying your hp8530p/w, to achieve full hardware support afterwards. In short words, it is about changing the graphic card, wifi card and enabling them.
** Short Note: I'am not responsible for any damages that you do to your notebook!
In my case, my hp8530p got an ATI HD 3650 inside, which has no support after Leopard 10.5.
I've googled a lot, but I've didn't found any solution. So I decided to switch graphic cards.
Also my Intel Wifi 5300bgn has no support under Mac OS X, so it needs to be switched, too.
After reading a lot on changing hardware on the hp8530, i found out, that only hardware which was built in stock hp 8530p notebooks will work.
So i looked at the original maintenance and service guide from HP.

If you look on Page 23, there you'll se...
I’m trying to get native Lion support for my HP8530p:
Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 (2,53GHz)
NVidia FX770m (9600GTm)
In the next few weeks I’m going to explain every step I’ve made with my HP8530p to get an almost vanilla installation of 10.7.3.
Also I’m going to share my experience and my findings.
If you are on an Hp8530w, the most of those patches will also apply for you.
The following chapters will be: Modifying the HP8530p/w
Install Lion 10.7.x
Dual Booting Lion and Windows 7 on GUID Partition
Obtain DSDT and repair it
DSDT Fixing to achieve almost Vanilla
At this point of writing, I’m not fully succeeded in enabling all of the hardware inside my hp8530p.
