  1. Thanks. It's apparently the ACPIThermal kext which prevents sleep from working. So the solution is to unload it before sleep and reload it afterwards: install sleepwatcher, and edit /etc/rc.sleep to add: "/sbin/kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleACPIThermal.kext" edit /etc/rc.wakeup to add: "/sbin/kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleACPIThermal.kext"

    Is fakesmc loaded? You can build an Extensions.mkext with mkext tool and place it in Extra if you don't have one.

    Hi, So now you don't have a kp, but what are the last lines where you're stuck?
  4. [Guide] Hackintosh on HP 550 Notebook

    Sure, but if you want to do it: download the dsdt patcher from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...pic=133683%2522 take the dsdt_new_USB_ET_GFX_PRBT.dsl file from the 6720s_DSDT_Fixed folder where you downloaded the DSDT.aml from Blackch and place it in the DSDT_Patcher1 folder. open the terminal and navigate to this folder and type "./DSDT\ Patcher dsdt_new_USB_ET_GFX_PRBT.dsl -newHPET". rename the dsdt.aml file generated to DSDT.aml and place it instead of the other. DSDT.aml.zip

    Hi, There is a 10.6 iopcifamily created by slice available, so I tried it but didn't solve the usb2. Therefore I recompiled the DSDT from the dsl file given by blackch with the option -newHPET, and now usb2 are working ok from now. Note: I didn't try the new DSDT.aml with original iopcifamily, so I don't know whether it would work or not. So install the iopcifamily, and recompile the DSDT.aml with "./DSDT\ Patcher dsdt_new_USB_ET_GFX_PRBT.dsl -newHPET".

    No I just replaced the FB.kext, and modified the ids in the other kext, and let the bundles untouched.

    Blue screen might be caused because of the FB.kext version 1.5.18 without the efi strings. The link you posted is necessary for people with a 1680*1050 screen, not for us 1200*800.

    @dakku What's wrong with your graphics, do you have a black(or blue) screen or just no kext loaded at all? For the battery I use voodooBaterry.kext, but work only in /S/L/E instead of /E/E. Restart doesn't work for me, and shutdown ok but if I let it some time. This will be solved once the usb2 will be ok.

    INSTALLING SNOW LEOPARD The following explains how I installed snow leopard on the hp550, using the original DVD and a leopard distribution. I assume you read all the good guides on the subject. ISSUES: usb2 problem with the "unable to initialize UIM" error --> Waiting for a IOPCIFamily.kext for 10.6 booting with -f gives kernel panic WHAT YOU NEED: A snow leopard DVD (or disk image) Chameleon 2 rc3 installer made by Dr. Hurt (found here) A Leopard distribution dvd (kaliway, iAtkos, iPc,..) Lots of patience because it's a pain. PROCEDURE: Backup your data Install leopard Once the leopard dvd booted, select the disk utility and make two GUID partitions: one for leopard (the smallest possible, mine is 12 Go) the other for snow leo Let say they are respectively called "Leo" and "SnowLeo". Install leopard on "Leo". Install snow leopard Once in Leopard and ready to install Snow leopard, use the terminal to set the permissions of the "SnowLeo" partition: chown 0:0 /Volumes/Snow Insert the dvd and click on the install icon, or mount the image, and open the installation package: device:Volumes prince$ cd /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Installation/Packages/ device:Packages prince$ open OSInstall.mpkg Select the "SnowLeo" partition and launch the installation. If it fails, erase "SnowLeo" (might be unnecessary) and reinstall. Install Chameleon 2 rc3 on "SnowLeo", and then remove what is in the /SnowLeo/extra folder. Place there the DSDT.aml compiled by blackch, some extensions needeed: fakesmc.kext made by Netkas, VoodooPS2.kext, VoodooHDA.kext. As they will be loaded when you boot either Leo or SnowLeo, make sure you delete dsmos.kext, AppleDecrypt.kext, ApplePS2Controller.kext, AzaliaAudio.kext (in Leo) for Leopard to boot up correctly. Remove the IOATAFamily.kext in /SnowLeo/S/L/E and replace it with the 10.5.8 one, you can find it here. Take both AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext and AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext from /SnowLeo/S/L/E, change their device id to match 2A12 and replace them to their location. (for right brightness, place the FB.kext version 1.5.18 instead) Airport Replace 4318 by 4315 in the plist. (hp550 users, assuming you have the broadcom card) sudo nano /Volumes/SnowLeo/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext/Contents/Info.plist [CTRL O] [ENTER] to save [CTRL X] to exit You should now be able to boot in Leo. If you use Chameleon 2 rc3, then the argument to boot in 32 bits is "arch=i386", if you use chameleon 2 rc2 with netkas boot file, then it's "-x32". You will need to reinstall BSD package located in the dvd in the same folder as "OSInstall". TroubleShooting This is the pain part. You need the useful kextutility software. The extensions.mkext is no longer in /S/L/E but /S/L/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/ , so this is where you can delete it. You can remove IOATAFamily.kext if you have some early kp to boot correctly, and then reinstall it. Boot in both 32 and 64 bits to check if there is the same problem. Boot in Leo and make some changes to SnowLeo. UPDATES: Any update should be straightforward. You might need to repair the graphics, the wifi according to the updates. I modified the patch for gmax4500 to reinsert our 2A12 device id in the kext after each update. It copy the stock kext on your desktop and modify the ones in /S/L/E . You will find it attached.patchX3100update.bash.zip (don't forget to reinstall FB.kext version 1.5.18 for brigthness). 10.6.1: just the graphics to reinstall. Good Luck

    Hi, I know the way I installed it is not the best, but anyway I will write something shortly hoping I don't forget anything.
  11. [Guide] Hackintosh on HP 550 Notebook

    Try to remove the piixata kext in ioatafamily.kext/Content/plugin and replace it with the one from 10.5.8.
  12. [Guide] Hackintosh on HP 550 Notebook

    I deleted the smbios.plist wich was in the extra folder. For the graphics and ps2 controllers, make sure you are in 32 bits mode and the kext permissions are ok, I don't see what else could cause a problem.
  13. Hi, What is the error after the bios? You can reinstall chameleon once in leo, it must work. Choose a custom install without any extensions.
  14. [Guide] Hackintosh on HP 550 Notebook

    To dakku I installed chameleon on the snow leo partition. I found why the repair permissions didn't work, I had to reinstall the BSD package from DVD. I have still the usb problem, but only in 32 bits. Wifi ok, sleep ok, battery icon ok, and brightness ok. I had some kp related to IOATA kext, so I replaced it from the one in leo to boot Sow leo, once in snow I replaced the original, repaired kext permissions and after it worked ok.

    Hi, I successfully installed snow leopard on my notebook. I tried to follow a retail install guide using a usb stick to boot on, but I experienced a kernel panic, I must have forgotten an important kext in the extra folder, anyway this is how I did: I reinstalled leopard and reformated my hard drive by using two partitions GPT, a small one (11 Go) for leopard, and a spare one for future snow leo. In leo, I installed Snow leo to the other partition, installed chameleon 2 rc2 and replace the boot file from netkas as explained in all guides. Then, I removed the extensions in the extra folder (on disk snow leo), and placed fakesmc, voodoops2 and voodoohda. I modified the intelGMAX3100 kexts to have the correct ids. Once booted on snow leo, there was lots of permissions problems, so a quick repair and then worked ok. Problems: no 64bits for the graphic card. (Boots ok and everything work, that's a shame) I have still a problem for my usb2, the interrupt filter pb I saw sometimes on leo, and I can't repair permissions, it says : "Started verify/repair permissions on disk0s2 SnowLeo No packages can be found for this disk Error: -9900: No installer packages can be found for this disk Underlying error: 20: POSIX reports: Not a directory " ??? I didn't try time machine yet, nor the ethernet, but both sound and keyboard/trackpad work as before.
