    HP Envy 17t-3200 - Install and Run OS X/macOS

    Well I'm currently using a VMware version of Lion to get all this done... Is there another way to create my dsdt and ssdt files?

    I added back the SSDT.aml into the Extra Folder and here's my boot.plist now: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1600x900x32</string> <key>Instant Menu</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SSDT</key> <string>Extra/ssdt.aml</string> <key>SystemType</key> <string>2</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>LoginToLion</string> <key>busratio</key> <string>30</string> </dict> </plist> Should I even add back the DropSSDT key/string as well? RESULT: I went ahead with the boot.plist above and added the SSDT.aml in the "extra" folder and I got a new KP: http://d.pr/i/WK1e

    sorry, in the updated boot.plist I do not have it listed and I get the same KP. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1600x900x32</string> <key>Instant Menu</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SystemType</key> <string>2</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>LoginToLion</string> <key>busratio</key> <string>30</string> </dict> </plist> it seems to only KP when I remove the DropSSDT string, and when I add it back it goes back to the fuzzy screen. I have also tried the "Graphics" & "GraphicsEnabler=No & Yes" boot commands and it still KPs or Fuzzy Screens...

    After I changed the resolution and removed the key/string. It still gives me the same buggy screen. What else could prohibit the graphics kexts from loading? EDIT: OK I'll remove the drop line next EDIT: I removed the Drop SSDT lines and I got...a kernal panic: http://d.pr/i/oap0 and here's the org.chameleon.Boot.plist that possibly gave the panic: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1600x900x32</string> <key>Instant Menu</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SSDT</key> <string>Extra/ssdt.aml</string> <key>SystemType</key> <string>2</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>LoginToLion</string> <key>busratio</key> <string>30</string> </dict> </plist>

    1. I removed your DSDT and SSDT like you said in the USB installer, so no, I'm running with no DSDT until Post-Install. 2. I will remove the key/string and report back. EDIT: Here's what my org.chameleon.Boot.plist looks like after the edit: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> <key>Instant Menu</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SSDT</key> <string>Extra/ssdt.aml</string> <key>SystemType</key> <string>2</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>LoginToLion</string> <key>busratio</key> <string>30</string> </dict> </plist> Just realized that the resolution was changed to 1080. I need to switch it to 1600x900.

    Im so stupid! I misread step 14 on the USB Installer: I repaired permissions on the actual folder named S/L/E instead of the Extensions folder on the USB... . thats why the kexts weren't loading... I'm currently fixing the problem and going for another round of install and report back after. Result: Same scrambled screen... I am just going to recreate the USB again and see if that will fix it...maybe Result #2: Nope... I do need the specific HD 3000 efi injector to make it work...

    I'll try that. I tried when installing chameleon on the USB to switch it to 1600x900, my native resolution. But it just gave me the same output. I'll change it back to 1080 and then run the boot command to see if that will work Just tried it and it did not work. No matter what resolution I put in. The monitor only sees a 1024x768 input. So I tried setting every screen setting to 1024x768 and it......gives me the same result...

    I followed all the USB installer steps to the T. Boot up into chameleon went fine, but when I get to the setup page I get a distorted and buggy screen. How can I change the graphics resolution from the boot command line? Here's a pic of the screen I get after I go through chameleon: http://d.pr/i/xgh9

I am currently going through http://bit.ly/UWBkGP [[GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Mountain Lion] and not sure if I can use this method because of the support of Gigabyte Motherboard. If their's a way to support my HP motherboard then please let me know.

    request for Radeon HD 6850M driver

    I was able to successfully install iAtkos L2 on my HP Envy 17 Laptop, but it panic-ed and errored out after the second boot. I was forgetful and didnt remember to take a snapshot of the panic, but i did see that I needed a different graphics driver. I have looked through Google and found no kexts or drivers with Radeon HD 6850M as an option. I was wondering if anyone may have it?

    HP Envy i7 DSDT help!

    I am trying to install Lion onto my HP ENVY laptop; i7 2.00GHz CPU, 8GBs RAM, Radeon 6850M HD dedicated Graphics card. I am using this GUIDE and using VMware Workstation 8 running Lion & Snow Leopard on the same laptop (cause it's the only computer I have that can handle virtualization) I am having issues with the DSDT Editor (cause the Auto-Patcher doesn't exsist anymore). I downloaded the DSDT Editor HERE (I downloaded the Mac Version) and I don't know what to do as far as patching the DSDT file. I have a Sandy Bridge model so when I searched in the patches folder, I looked through the Sandy Bridge folder, and That's where I'm stuck, I don't know which file to patch. What am I supposed to do? and can I just use a generic DSDT.aml file?
  14. I attempted to follow This Guide using Lion installed on VMware Workstation 8. I believe I created the proper USB Stick for my laptop (HP ENVY i7 Laptop). At first it couldn't find the mach_kernel.kext, which i fixed, and now Chameleon loads with 4 drives to boot, The Mac USB stick, Windows7, my recovery HD, and a drive labeled NTFS. I selected the Mac USB stick, but when it loads it gives me the grey power button background with a message asking me to restart my PC and try again. How do I fix this? and is their a better guide I can follow? MaLd0n's guide is kinda confusing and doesn't give clear directions... I am trying to instal Lion on an HP ENVY laptop with an i7, 2.00GHz Sandy Bridge CPU, 8GBs of RAM, and a Radeon HD 6850M dedicated graphics card. I know it can be done, i just cant find the right method yet...

    HP Envy i7 for the 1st time...

    UPDATE: I have both Snow Leopard and Lion installed on VMware and both of them DO NOT see the USB stick, someone please help me with this...I disabled and enabled my USB 3.0 Host controller and I have no USB BIOS settings other than boot order...Should I update to VMware Workstation 8 and try it that way?
