  1. No I haven't tried any distros. I'd like to get it running with this because I spent 20.- for the ML.
  2. so with ##### I meant Unix"xBeast ignore x"x
  3. I'm sorry for the ##### mistake, didn't know that this forum doesn't support TonyMac But I found the Tutorial on this Forum! Here's a photo:
  4. Hey Guys I'm now trying to install Mountain Lion to my HP Pavilion DV7 for 3 days. But it's just not working!! First of all I tried it with ##### from this guide:http://thetechable.com/easiest-way-to-install-mountain-lion-on-any-pc-how-to/ With this one I first got this error: dcbtable_version is 0x4 nvidia rom patching failed So I googled and tried a lot of things, with bootflags: -v -x I was able to get it further, it showed me a lot of things til it gets to a stop with following message: System uptime in Nanoseconds: 4449494631030 So I tried with more bootflags like : PCIRootUID=0 (or 1 tried both) GraphicsEnabler=No (or Yes tried both) npci=0x3000 Still I always get the same error. Then I tried another How-To :http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-mountain-lion-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/ This one gets the exact same error as the ##### one, the only difference is that with this one I don't get any Image until the Error occurs. My System: HP Pavilion DV7 Laptop CPU: Core i7 3610QM RAM: 4 GB Graphics: NVidia GeForce GT630M I really searched for hours and hours and I would be happy if anyone could help me!! Thanks a lot.

  5. Hi Thank you for this awesome Manual!! But I already have it installed, the only problem I have is that I can't use Final Cut Pro which was why I downloaded the VM. Now that I know that it won't work I'm just testing and learn about the Mac OS because I've never used it before. Thank you !!
  6. My Trackpad is working on my AMD-PC with a Kensington Bluetooth module and on my Intel-Notebook with built-in Bluetooth. I just needed to install the drivers I found on google. It works both on Win7 and Win8. I don't really want to install OS X by myself with a retail DVD because I don't know how and I just wanted to test Mac OS X and Final Cut Pro but I guess Final Cut will never be tested by myself. Maybe I'll buy myself a Mac in maybe 10 years (if Apple still exists until then).
  7. Thanks for the quick replies !! I'll try the drivers and "Perian" don't know what that is yet. But I can't install the VMWare Tools from the darwin.iso. Don't know why but everytime I try it I get an error message that the setup hasn't worked correctly. So maybe I'm just too dumb to install it. Pretty sad graphics acceleration won't work, I wanted to try Final Cut Pro. Well Thanks a lot. And then there is something different I wanted to ask too. I've got the Apple Magic Trackpad, and it works just fine. Left and right click, scrolling with 2 fingers these work just fine, but what I wanted to ask was: Can I use the Gestures from the Magic Trackpad in the Virtual Machine?
  8. Hi Guys, I'm new to this forum so please don't react to panicly... So I got this Laptop, which is an HP Pavilion DV7. I installed VMWare Workstation 9 and used a preloaded virtual Disk with Mac OSX 10.8 installed. So everything works just fine except for: Gestures of the Magic Trackpad Sound and Video are lagging Graphics Acceleration is not working And it's a bit slow but that's not really surprising So what I was gonna ask: Could anyone help me getting the graphics acceleration and the sound and video working? And I need to say that this is my first Mac experience. I have never used Mac except for a little bit of goofing around in several shops. Thank you for your time and help! Regards Oechiih EDIT: Sorry, I just realised that the Title doesn't really hit my target. Please Excuse-me
