So i'm ready to be patient. I have spent some time failing to install osx on my dv7-3085dx. I have tried to research a guide for this particular laptop but can only find very limited information.
I want a reliable OSX system. I am typically a windows and linux user. I chose to install for certain apple software like Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro.
I am not too worried about which distro I want, obviously the newer the better, but which ever is the most reliable. It seems that Snow Leopard my be the distro I have to stick with.
Here are the Specs:
Microprocessor 1.60 GHz Intel Core i7-720QM Processor
Microprocessor Cache 6MB L2 Cache
Memory 6144MB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
Memory Max 8192MB
Video Graphics Nvidia GeForce GT 230M ( NB10P GE) discrete 1024MB up to 2815MB total graphics memory
Video Memory ith 1024MB dedicated
Hard Drive 500GB (7200RPM)
Multimedia Drive LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support
Display 17.3” Diagonal HD+ High-Definition HP LED BrightView Widescreen Display (1600 x 900)
Fax/Modem High speed 56k modem
Network Card Integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN
Wireless Connectivity Intel WiFi Link 5100AGN
Sound Altec Lansing with SRS Premium Sound and Sub-Woofer
I've been able to get all three to install but with errors of course.
I would like to know what you guys think would be the best option for my laptop.
And if you have any material on it that would be great too!
