    ok, mac os x 10.5.2 will install on this laptop but there is a problem when booting up. you will need to use the non efi patch. i could not find a copy of the non efi patch unless you guys can point me to one.

    if you give me a few days i will post if it will work, i got the same laptop and this is the first time it will even have mac installed on if it can be installed. i am doing it right now, and so far it seems it can be installed but to what extent.
  6. Mac Os X 10.4.11 on a Compaq Evo N610C Laptop

    i went to wal-mart today and got this usb blue tooth chip, well i got it installed on windows so i decided to see if it worked on mac ( it says it works for mac 10.3 and up ) well it does. i plugged it in and turned on my laptop. guess what? i didn't have to configure it to work it was like it came with it already installed.the name of the product is iogear. it was 19.98 and it works like a charm. this is just an update to what i got working.

  8. Mac Os X 10.4.11 on a Compaq Evo N610C Laptop

    ok i have been searching the net for some more information on these compaq evo n610c's. well i found out that the video res will only go up to 1024X768. this is what i know for now. but if i come upo to any more things that is related to this laptop i will post it. oh there is something else the video card, i noticed that there are 2 device id numbers. 1a31 and 4c57. if anyone tries the other device id and gets it working tell me so i can try something else to see if i can get ci working.

    I have offically switched to XxX OS 10.4.11 install disc rev.2, it has more drivers then the original. if you are using XxX OS 10.4.11 install disc, i suggust you to switch to the new one. it has the drivers for almost everything but one. the pcmcia (pccard bus). which is not hard to fix. AND YES!! i got qe working again with only changing 2 things. one i had to add agpgert.kext (i forgot to select it from the install) and edit it and the com.apple.boot.plist. after that qe was working lol. there is one thing i hate about it is that you can not unselect verbmose mode. other then that everything works great.
  11. Mac Os X 10.4.11 on a Compaq Evo N610C Laptop

    i ran into some problems trying to reinstall mac os x, so i am downloading the rev.2 or the XxX OS 10.4.11 install disc rev.2. hopefully this works better.

    retrorandy, when i reinstall and get it all back to normal i will attempt to get qe working again, ci will never work unless you can change the video card on the system. if i get it running i will do another tutorial on how i got it to work.
  13. Mac Os X 10.4.11 on a Compaq Evo N610C Laptop

    I have been getting alot of messages on this post on how to get it to install on other's hack boxs so i am going to do a tutorial on how to do it. remember not all things will worl right off the bat. retrorandy: thanks for helping, the reason i didn't mention the sse2 is i forgot and didn't realize some people don't know the specs of the laptop. Ok first, i am using the entire hdd that means no dual booting. the first thing you need to do is format the hdd to be journaled. ok here comes the tricky part, selecting the right patches and packages to install on the compaq laptop: you want to have the 10.4.11 update checked because you want to install it. now go to kernels and kexts. uncheck 8.10.1 and no-EFI, you will not be needing these since you do not have sse3. extend the kernel option for 8.9.1, you will want to install this kernel so check it for install. ok this one i recommend, extend Recommendedpatches. once done uncheck the verbosemode (unless you want to wait the 7 seconds, i don't so i uncheck it). now lets move on to the next section. Optionalkernel/patches, ok this one would be easy. extend it to see the options. under optionalkernels i checked 8.9.1.kernel.uniersal.apr23, under optionalpatches i checked nothing. now for graphics drivers, since it is an ati radeon mobility 7500 m 32mb i selected to use callisto.b008. for the AGPGart i clected AGPGart.v2.2. for sound i checked adi1980.ac97.audio for networking i checked the fallowing: AtherosAR5004G Wireless Driver 10.4.5.IO8021Family.kext 10.4.3IONetworkingFamily.kext AppleIntel8255x.kext this is about the end of the tutorial, but there are a few more things. the last option on the custom install for mac os x 10.4.11 is a miscellaneous so you can check what ever you want on it. but this is a warning, the radeontool doesn't for with the video card so don't install it. the quarts extreme i have gottin it to work on 10.4.11 but when i did a reinstall i couldn't get it to work but some of you might. but this is what i used to get it to work the first time Tutorial Here for the cardbuss (pcmcia slots) i used this to get it working Tutorial Here well this is as far as i can go. it took me more then a year to get mac installed on my laptop, if this tutorial is hard to understand please ask questions. just a reminder it took me 3 months to get the info on how to get alot of the hardware working on here so just bare with me, i am just a single guy who is into computers. so now i am off to bed because i am sick with the flu and i had time to write this. i hope you people get help from this.

    http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...ati+radeon+7500 for the power manger i have no clue how i got it working. i was trying to get the pcmcia working and it cam up. i reinstalled mac os x 10.4.11 and now i can not get my own video working and i did it the last time lol. so i need to work on it more to get it all rigth again.

    don't worry about the fan is you have it connected to the charger. once you disconnect it, it will work normally. the reason why no ci is because the video card is too old to handle the ci system. oh and for the video what program are you using? if you are using the dvd player that comes with mac do not use it. use vlc or mplayer they will work better then dvd player on the mac. i have been trying to find a way to enable ci but no luck, i ended up screwing up my video drivers and had to reinstall mac os x. munkeyboy, i noticed you on your sig you have it saying hp, you are kinda right but the laptop is still known as a compaq. but all in time i will find a way to get ci working if not someone else will. if they can't then we are stuck with just qe. i have noticed when trying to reinstall mac i can not install any other kernel but 8.9.1 which sucks. i am still trying to find a good copy of 10.5 and have yet found a copy that will install without kernel errors.
