  1. HP Pavilion a6330f?

    Here is my current PC that I'm HOPING to turn into a hackintosh, I'm pretty sure I can do it, considering the fact that I've done it with a distro of Snow Leopard on a pretty much the same mobo and hardware. I just don't remember exactly where I started. Here are the specs of the PC: HP Pavilion a6330f Current OS: Linux Mint 16 Petra (Cinnamon) Motherboard Specs: Manufacturer: Asus Form factor: microATX - 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) x 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) Chipset: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 Memory sockets: 4 x DDR2 Front side bus speeds: 2000MT/s (2.0 GT/s) Processor socket: AM2 Expansion Slots: 1 PCI Express x16 slot for graphics card 2 PCI Express x1 slots 1 PCI slot HARDWARE: CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 (dual core) +++ CPU Specs : Operating speed: Up to 2.8 GHz Number of cores: 2 Socket: AM2 Bus speed: 2000 MT/s GPU: Force3D AMD ATI Radeon HD 6450 +++ GPU Specs : Supports HDMI, DVI, VGA PCIe x16 HD 1080P 2GB DDR3 Memory : 3gb Audio : 8 channel High Definition Audio Audio CODEC: ALC88S Networking: Interface - Integrated into Mobo Technology: Realtek RTL8201N Data Transfer Speeds: up to 10/100Mb/s ------------------------------------------------------ The Graphics card isn't integrated, And I know it should work with OS X, Just not completely sure which distro is needed. I'd like to get a distro of Lion or Mountain Lion on it, but I will settle for Snow Leopard. The only thing I had a problem with last time was the ethernet, there were no drivers for it. But this one is a little bit different, and hopefully there are drivers for it. If any more info is needed to find out which distro is recommended, I will gladly supply it The only thing I'm asking from you guys is to point me in the right direction. Thanks ~SpaceJester
  2. I've recently installed Hazard's Snow Leopard (10.6) on my AMD PC. My problem is that I have NO internet whatsoever. I mainly use ethernet, but in System Preferences/Network it says Ethernet Not Connected, Cable Unplugged. Everything else runs smoothly. I have the nForce LAN I believe. I have seen a method that seems to work for those who do it right, where you get an nForceEthernetDriver.kext and DPCIManager, you edit the info.plist by putting the device ID for your ethernet port that you found in DPCIManager, and then install the kext with Kext Helper. My problem here is that I CANNOT get DPCIManager to open. It opens and then instantly closes. Any help would be appreciated, whether it's linking me to a program like DPCIManager that works or showing me a different method. Thanks ~SpaceJester

  4. I am sort of new to Hackintoshing, with only 1 successful build. (Leopard). Not sure how to do all the work with the kexts and kernels. Some help with that would be also GREATLY appreciated. Alright, I have a PC that has: AMD Athlon Dual Core 4850e. 3gb of RAM. AMD Radeon HD 6450 My motherboard is from an HP desktop computer (Model Number: M2N68 - LA) It's basically an HP Pavilion a6000 in a new case and a new Graphics Card. I was wondering if I could run atleast Snow Leopard with this hardware. I probably won't have a DVD drive for long (Borrowing a DVD drive from a friend, because mine crapped out on me.) and I figured that a DVD is the easiest way to do it, so please respond ASAP . Any help would be appreciated. I've installed Hazard's Snow Leopard before, I got to the installer fine, But after I restarted my computer..NOTHING worked. I couldn't get to Windows or OS X. I finally had to format my ENTIRE hard drive and reinstall Windows 8. I was able to boot into the installer fine with no boot flags. I think it MAY have been a problem with the bootloader, because I heard (Don't know if it's true) that Chameleon only worked with Intel CPUs. I also tried ##### to get to my OS X partition, no luck. Empire EFI, still no luck. When I chose to boot up from my harddrive it just went to a black screen with the blinking _ at the top left corner and never went to anything else, not even Windows. Help would be GREATLY appreciated, because I haven't started working yet so buying an actual Mac is out of the question. ~SpaceJester
