#1881202 HP ProBook 4710s - Lion 10.7.5 - problems

Honestly man, that's a mess. All Intel-based laptops today use Intel HD graphics, or can from dedicated graphics. You have an ATI Mobility Radeon setup, which I'd Google along with "hackintosh", but I wouldn't hold my breath for something that old and foreign to Macs. Like if a real Mac used that, you'd have a fighting chance of getting it working... Sound is AMD-based, so I'm not expert but I haven't heard of that specifically working.... You might try VoodooHDA.kext, that's a pretty universal kext. As for Ethernet, most setups are Realtek, again, give it a Google with "hackintosh", but I'm not sure on support... And WiFi... Google Google Google! The whole post should be Googled! But the AR5B195 is a known compatible WiFi N/Bluetooth (3.0) card for hackintoshes, it's about $10 on eBay and is half-height PCIe, your laptop may be full-height PCIe... Frankly... It's far from the ideal hackintosh laptop, you...

Yeah follow the m6-1045dx guide on this site for the installation part, post installation ehhh might not work for your laptop, but they're close enough for the primary install. [GUIDE] HP Pavilion m6-1045dx (Mountain Lion) Specifically, I'd try booting with -v and cpus=1 and as for the "still waiting on root device" thing, make sure your USB drive installer is plugged in to a USB 2.0 port, it won't work on the 3.0 SuperSpeed ports. If, when you get to the install screen your hard drive doesn't show up, even in disk utility, then you need the AppleAHCIport.kext from the m6-1045dx guide. Install it into the S/L/E of your USB installer. EDIT: Make sure you use Kext Wizard!

NEW: Download the updated (12.09.12) and easier guide and all the files you need here! April 13th, 2013 I don't have the m6-1045dx anymore, but I hear that the modified AppleAHCIPort.kext does not work with 10.8.3... Anyone care to elaborate? Updates for the downloadable guide above:Don't install the two kexts for Bluetooth, especially if you're using the AR5B195- works out of box, may also fix Magic Mouse disconnect problem Actually that's a bad idea, I'm still working on the Bluetooth issue, but if you wait a minute after the Magic Mouse stops responding, it should start working again without a power cycle of the mouse.Actually back in October, HP released a BIOS update (must be on Windows to flash) for Windows 8 prep that enables UEFI for the BIOS and gives us the option in BIOS to disable USB 3.0 for those three 3.0 ports we have...This kind of solves the problem where if you plug something into a 3.0 port OSX freezes until you unplug it- it does no...

The latest! (01.14.13) I'm going to start scheduled updates to the guide/Gatsby Pack. If I fix something, or someone else fixes something, I'll update everything here on the following Friday. So like this Friday I'll update the Gatsby m6-1045dx pack for three-finger swipe actions, and I can probably add the BIOS update, in case HP's website goes down or whatever. Good News, Everyone (12.28.12) USB 3.0 ports work, at least with the latest BIOS update, but they only work with 3.0 devices. I was only recently able to test this. Furthermore, a lot of 2.0 devices work with the 3.0 ports, like wireless mouse dongles. Things that don't work include flash drives, iPhones, Android phones, pretty much anything that transfers files. Sound is now fully-functional (see the post in this thread about sound). Still on Tap (to fix) Intel Turbo/SpeedStep (I know it should be working, but I have a feeling it isn't) USB 2.0 functionality in the 3.0 ports...
