  1. [update] - Installing Mavericks 10.9 - Non Dual Booting Guide After two years since starting this thread it's time for an update on how to install the latest OS X to your hp8530p/w. Note: In this guide I only explain how to install OS X without taking care of any parallel Windows installation. Requirements: Running OS X machine ( > 10.5) - virtual machine for example Mavericks image from apple Myhack installer from http://myhack.sojugarden.com/ Kext wizard from janek202 - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/253395-kext-wizard-easy-to-use-kext-installer-and-more/ Latest dsdt.aml - attached in first post - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/274941-guide-–-hp8530p8530w-–-lion-1073/?p=1788377 Additional kext (driver) files (SLE.zip, Extra.zip) - attached in first post - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/274941-guide-–-hp8530p8530w-–-lion-1073/?p=1788377 Bootable USB Drive (~ 8GB) HP8530p/w with NVidia FX770m inside 1.) Creating a Mavericks Installer using myhack / preparing the USB Drive a.) Mount your mavericks image $something$.dmg b.) Format your usb device with the Disc Utility as "Mac OS Extendend (Journaled)" else myhack won't detect it. c.) Start myhack installer, enter su password, choose "Create OS X Installer" and "Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk" afterwards d.) Choose your usb drive as volume to run myhack on, let myhack scan the system for your mounted mavericks image e.) Proceed with the installation process. f. ) After myhack has finished, copy the downloaded dsdt.aml to the Extra folder of the "myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk" 2.) Install Mavericks on the hp8530p/w a.) Plug the created myHack Install USB Stick into your hp8530p/w b.) Press ESC after the hp boot prompt and F9 afterwards to choose the USB Device as boot device. c.) In Chameleon choose "myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk" and enter the additional paramter -v (in case something goes wrong) d.) Wait for the setup to start... takes some time e.) Format your HDD using Utilities -> Disk Utility as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) - Proceed with the setup f. ) Myhack will ask you some additional questions during installation - I answered them in this combination - Use Generic Extra that comes with myHack - YES - Remove ApplePolicyControl.kext - YES - Remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext - YES - Remove AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext - I'm not sure - I tried both.. didn't make any difference. Your choice. g.) The setup will restart - boot the HDD in Chameleon - you can remove the usb drive at this point. h.) Proceed with the Installation.... Done. 3.) Driver Installation a.) Navigate to /Extra/ and remove the whole folder "Extensions" and "RemovedExtensions" b.) Copy the following files from the downloaded Extra.zip to /Extra - SMBios.plist - org.chameleon.Boot.plist c.) Copy the latest dsdt.aml to /Extra d.) Go to /System/Library/Extensions and remove the following files - AppleHDA.kext - AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext - myhack.kext e.) Extract the SLE.zip and install the following files using kext wizard to /S/L/E/ - ACPIBatteryManager.kext - AppleHDA.kext - AppleIntelE1000.kext - FakeSMC.kext - VoodooPS2Controller.kext f.) Reboot g.) Finish the installation of the VoodooPs2Controller Dameon (see https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller/wiki/How-to-Install). If you don't to this, your keyboard/touchpads won't work after sleep! h.) Optional: Check if speedstep is working using the HWMonitor.app (inside SLE.zip) Else Update to 10.9.1 via AppStore is possible without any issues - just replace the updated AppleHDA.kext with the one from SLE.zip again... I hope I didn't miss something... Enjoy your hackbook, Gumman
  2. @any1982: zip the ioreg file and it's possible to attach it. I'm not sure why you can't boot directly from the hdd. Now I guess some kexts are missing, because in the pm you said that it was possible for you to boot without GraphicsEnabler=yes when using a mult*beast installation and the dsdt. Maybe it's just time for another part of the guide which explains how to set up mavericks.... be patient.
  3. some more updates: raeis was kind to send me the files from pcbeta - many thanks again!. Those files are a huge improvement. Their DSDT has some nice patches inside but some stuff is missing (firewire for example) - needs some further investigation.... Unfortunately it had a compatibility issue for 10.8.5 and above which broke speedstepping but I fixed it. (see http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-lion-desktop-support/109371-higher-temps-after-upgrade-10-8-5-a.html for more info) Most of the kext files from the pcbeta thread are useless for 10.9 (except AppleHDA) - but kexts from other sources work properly with the patched dsdt ! I'm happy to say that this stuff is finally fixed: Audio - AD1984A via AppleHDA / DSDT (except ext. microphone input) Battery/AC – Notebook Battery Status Brightness Control via FN-Key TouchStick and TouchPad (gestures etc.) LID ( Sleep when Closing LID) Sleep You'll need the following kexts: AppleIntelE1000.kext from http://sourceforge.net/projects/osx86drivers/files/Kext/ for the Ethernet Controller AppleHDA.kext from my last post: delete any existing AppleHDA.kext from /S/L/E/ and install via Kext Wizard ACPIBatteryManager.kext from https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Battery-Driver - Install via Kext Wizard. Delete AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext from /S/L/E - this will enable the Battery Status;) FakeSMC.kext from https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-FakeSMC-kozlek - Replace any other instances of FakeSMC.kext with this version. I'm not 100% sure if this step is needed - but you'll get a nice HWMonitor app which lets you check if speedstepping is properly working (see below) VoodooPS2Controller.kext from https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller - Install the way it's described there. This will enable all the special HP-Keys, TouchPad, TouchStick and Brightness Control via FN-Keys. Some other notes: Speedstepping is not enabled in this DSDT. You'll have to enable it via Chameleon or any other Bootloader which is the appropriate way to enable Speedstepping. To do so - enable P and C-State generation in your org.chameleon.Boot.plist and add the right SMBios.plist for a MacBookPro5,1 to your extra folder. You can generate one using Chameleon Wizard. Make sure that after a reboot the following Kexts are loaded. AppleLPC, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, AppleHPET. Check using kextstat in a shell. Also make sure that NullCPUPowerManagment.kext is not loaded - if so remove that kext file. Finally check if your cpu changes frequency while idle using the HWMonitor.app (see above). Temp of my CPU (T9400) is around 40°C... Many thanks to the guys involved in all those fancy dsdt patches and kext driver stuff... Cheers, Gumman --- edit #1 added some more dsdt fixes (v2): HPET fix from macintoshy's DSDT - fixes weird usb behaviour - thanks! EHCI (ICH10) SATA (ICH10) SBUS (ICH10) --- edit #2 Some people are messaging me if this dsdt is compatible with their specific CPU: Yes it is. As it doesn't contain any specific speedstepping settings you can use this dsdt on any hp8530p/w. Just make sure to enable speedstepping via chameleon (see note above) dsdt_hp8530pw_09-01-14_v2.zip
  4. time for a litte update: did a fresh install with mavericks using myhack and one of my old dsdts. works great so far - but the unresolved problems still exist. after some research for new drivers (audio etc) I found two very nice discussions in chinese boards: http://forum.51nb.com/viewthread.php?tid=1198165&extra=&page=1 http://bbs.pcbeta.com/viewthread-1021502-1-1.html seems like they've fixed many of our problems - but I have trouble downloading the files from pcbeta... from 51nb I got a working AppleHDA.kext file for our AD1984A which is great success! internal speaker, headphone output and the internal microphone are working. external microphone is not working my dsdt and the applehda file is attached below... cheers AppleHDA.kext.zip dsdt-06-01-2014.zip
  5. Hi duian, brightness control through settings should also work with my dsdt. currently only changing brightness using the FN Keys won't work I'm having a look into that dsdt later maybe it has some other improvements... Cheers
  6. macintoshy, that's exactly the value i'm using in my dsdt - that's also why i'm pretty sure it isn't the NVCAP Value - it's display initialization.. found some time today .... time for some digging into the hdmi thing But i have some questions to you guys: * Is your CD-Rom Drive also missing in Lion - or is it just mine that won't work? * Some people wrote that they have sleep enabled? - Mine won't even go to sleep? Fixes? * Why do you install a Trackpad and Keyboard enhancement? - For gestures? (didn't tried that out yet) * Internal Mic isn't working with VoodooHDA right? - So no real solution? Cheers Found out that the NVCAP Values are responsible for the display mappings. I've modified them to initialize hdmi at the B-Display but, it seems that HDMI and the internal display are using the same channel of the graphic card.. so no luck. . I'm still pretty sure the NVCAP values are correct. Maybe we need a modified VBIOS to split internal channel and hdmi channel .... In this post http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=370&view=findpost&p=16436 kossak was almost in the same situation with his 8540p... krazubu made him a modded vbios maybe that's our chance, too (even for docking station hdmi...)
  7. Hey Guys... found some time to write the next chapter of my guide ... This chapter is about how to install Lion and Windows 7 on a GUID Partition... --- Chapter 3 - Dual Booting Lion and Windows 7 on GUID Partition --- Since it's quite a while, that i've done this... i've only remember the basic steps.. In the last step we've installed lion - and we've created a second partition in MS-DOS format while installing lion using the lion installer usb stick. Windows 7 won't install on that native GUID Partition, if you insert a Windows 7 CD or Boot Stick and try to install it, you'll see Windows 7 needs a MBR entry on your harddisk - to get one you'll need gptsync. I'll remember there's a mac version floating around somewhere, but the version that i've tried didn't worked so i did it using a Ubuntu Live CD. Get the Ubuntu 10.04 Installer here - we'll only need it to boot up the live linux system from it - no need to install linux ! http://www.ubuntu.co...ubuntu/download Grab that image, burn it to cd/usb stick - bootup linux. Once Linux is up - Look at the Startbar,(don't know the exact linux name), there's somewhere a menu about software sources. Enable Universe Sources there. Then open up a shell somwhere (e.g. bash) and type "sudo apt-get install gptsync". After gptsync is installed, run the command: gptsync /dev/YOURDEVICE ... YOURDEVICE is something like "sda" or "hda" There are plenty of ways to find out the device name of your harddisk... so it should not be that difficult Once gptsync was successfull shutdown and remove the ubuntu cd. Then Install Windows 7 to the MS-DOS Partition -> reformat it to NTFS -> install - now it should work!.. If your done installing windows - you'll probably notice that you cannot boot lion anymore. To fix this, boot up your Lion Installation USB Stick - and boot Lion from there. Once your back again in Lion - Reinstall Chameleon Loader to your harddrive... If you reboot now, you'll see windows 7 and lion in chameleon boot menu. done. Cheers, Gumman
  8. Macintoshy, the funny thing is that the hdmi port is working! If you use my NVCAP Values - you'll clearly see OS X notifying that there is another display. But the problem is, the new monitor is created in the same device where the internal display is created. You can see this in IORegExplorer. I didn't found a solution for this problem yet, but I'm not sure if it's just the NVCAP Values. Maybe you'll have to declare it as a third device in DSDT. Hank. Very nice! Nice to see that someone really used this guide I don't have HP Notebook Hub for my 8530p, so I can't help you with that. If you're using my dsdt you should have VGA Output Support under Lion - so this will be the first workaround for you until we get HDMI working. Maybe if HDMI works, your HP notebook hub also will ... Cheers, Gumman
  9. Nice .. I think I try VoodooHDA next time. The last days I made some progress with the Original AppleHDA, but didn't get it to work so far. Macintoshy.. if you'll made some progress in enabling hardware that i've didn't enabled yet, would you please so kind to post your dsdt solution here? Thanks
  10. Hey macintoshy, I've modified your dsdt with the patches that I applied to my dsdt to get it to compile in first place! So i didn't add any other patches ICH etc.. but all of your compiler errors are fixed. So you can start doing some DSDT patches by yourself ! Don't use my DSDT if your using another CPU than my T9400. My DSDT has Speedstepping for the T9400 inside. If you use my dsdt, you'll probably kill your CPU... At the moment i'm very busy at work, so I don't have time to play around with my hackbook But as soon as it's getting better, i'll finish my tutorials and explain the other dsdt patches i've been using. I also don't have battery indication working yet, so I can't help you at this point. If you want to get your FX770 working, have a look at the "PEGP.DGFX" part in my DSDT. I think you can copy that exactly to your DSDT and it *should* work! But, did I understand you correctly? You have sound working on your 8530w? Using AppleHDA.kext or VoodooHDA? Cheers, Gumman hp8530w_modifed_dsdt.zip
  11. --- Chapter 2 - Installing Lion 10.7.x --- Hey Guys, this is Chapter 2 of my guide, it's on how to install lion 10.7.x, in my case 10.7.2. This guide is based on many of those guides flowing around in these forums, so i won't describe *every* step i did, i only write about the ones you'll need to care about or the steps you have to add, to get it working on your hp 8530p/w. Basically you can use the guide posted by mald0n here: http://www.insanelym...pic=256729&st=0 Mainly all guides are depending on an running mac os x somewhere... but what do you do if you don't have a running mac os x? There are some solutions, maybe you can try to put the Lion Install dmg to your USB Drive using a windows tool or something like that.... But my way was to install Mac OS X to a VMware device and putting the Install.dmg from there to my usb stick (as shown my mald0n). There are plenty of tutorials out there, how you can install a Mac OS X in VMware, google it! Okay in my case I had an old installation of Leopard in VMware, so i didn't have to figure out how to install it to a vmware anymore But it's easier to follow those guides, if you have a working mac os installation somewhere... So basically, follow the guide from mald0n, and stop after you installed the extra pkg and the chameleon pkg to your usb drive. Then open your Finder, go to your Lion Install USB Drive, go to /System/Library/Extensions. Locate the "IOFireWireFamily.kext" there and delete it! If you won't delete this kext, you'll get a kernel panic after installation. We add the IOFireWireFamily.kext in a later chapter again, after we fixed the Firewire IRQs using DSDT The Installation Process: Boot your HP8530p/w, go to Bios, reset everything to default (you don't need to set specific options for running Lion on an hp8530p/w ) Boot your USB Drive, Lion Installation should appear but it may wan't you to add a USB Keyboard to start Installation. I was lucky to have a usb keyboard flying around... so no problem (there are also other ways to fix this problem, lookup the forums) In Lion Installation format your Harddisk Drive to a 2 Partition Layout (GUID) - 2 in case you want install Windows 7 afterwards, if you don't want to, just create one partition. I partitioned my 250gb drive with the first partition (lion) (125gb - Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and the second partition for seven (125gb) (MS-DOS FAT). I'm sorry that I didn't make any pictures of this process, but it's far more easier than it sounds;)! After you properly formatted your harddrive start installation. It should install fine and boot hopefully lion afterwards Now you need to install a Chameleon Bootloader to your harddrive, if you don't, you'll need to boot your usb installation stick everytime, you want to boot up mac from your harddrive. In Lion Install Chameleon to your harddrive using Chameleon Wizard by janek202: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=257464 If you want to install Windows 7 now, see the next Chapter. If you don't need to install Windows 7 head over to Chapter 4 Cheers, Gumman
  12. --- Chapter 1 - Modifiying the HP8530p --- Hey Guys, here's the first part of my guide. This is not about installing Mac OS X, this is about modifiying your hp8530p/w, to achieve full hardware support afterwards. In short words, it is about changing the graphic card, wifi card and enabling them. ** Short Note: I'am not responsible for any damages that you do to your notebook! In my case, my hp8530p got an ATI HD 3650 inside, which has no support after Leopard 10.5. I've googled a lot, but I've didn't found any solution. So I decided to switch graphic cards. Also my Intel Wifi 5300bgn has no support under Mac OS X, so it needs to be switched, too. After reading a lot on changing hardware on the hp8530, i found out, that only hardware which was built in stock hp 8530p notebooks will work. So i looked at the original maintenance and service guide from HP. Get it here -> http://h10032.www1.h...l/c02030275.pdf If you look on Page 23, there you'll see all wlan cards that are supported in the hp8530p/w, and none of them has support for Lion - what a bummer! So you need to hack the bios to allow other wlan cards to work. But someone already did that for us After digging a lot on the mydigitallife.info forums, i've found a link to a nice site with bios patches for hp notebooks without wlan whitelisting. Get your Bios there: http://forum.noteboo...7x0p-25x0p.html If you're on a hp8530w, you need to install the bios of the hp8530p - they are the same. Flash this Bios from Windows on your Notebook. (My advice is to better have a running windows to check that you've changed your hardware properly, before beginning to use mac os x) If you look on Page 24, there you'll see all graphics that are supported by your hp8530p/w. For graphic cards there is NO Whitelisting patch or something like this. You'll need to use on of the graphic cards listed there. Look at the nVidia NB9P-GLM2 there. It's a NVidia Quadro FX 770m which is also known as NVidia 9600GTm and has support for Lion! (and hopefully above... ) So you'll need to try to get your hands on that graphic card. Search ebay for "502338-001" if you want to keep sure, you get the original one used by hp. If you'll buy a standard 9600GTm MXM (maybe from a Acer notebook) or from "not-an-HP-book" you'll proably need to flash the right VBIOS to the MXM Card. I know that this is possible, but it's not easy. To get the idea, you'll need a bootable usb stick, which starts the vbios patching automatically, because you won't be able to see anything on your display... . I can't help you with that process, so my approach would be googling "MXM Flash VBios". Where to get that VBIOS? Someone uploaded it here: http://www.techpower...face=&memSize=0 In my case I bought the right FX770m with the right bios inside on ebay from a guy from Lithuania http://myworld.ebay....sid=p4340.l2559 It seems that he's selling more of these video cards, so if you think it's worth the money, get one... Now, the WLAN Module, after you've flashed the whitelisting bios, your able to install a wifi card of your choice. I bought an Atheros AR5BXB92 from an original macbook, which seems to work very fine in Lion. But it's your choice, lookup the forums, and install a wifi card which is working properly under lion How to change the hardware? This process is far from easy. It's not like changing graphic cards in an standard pc. You'll have to nearly disassembly the complete notebook, to be able to switch the graphic card. Don't do it, if you really *need* the notebook, the chance to brick it is high! Still reading here? Okay. The process of changing graphic cards is described in the original maintenance and service guide from HP, which I posted the link to above. If you're carefull and do anything as described there, you can't go wrong. If you read the guide very accurate, you'll maybe noticed, that HP uses an other Headsink for the NVidia Graphic Card (maybe a better one). In my case, i still used the Heatsink from the ATI Graphic Card for the NVidia Graphic Card - without any problems. I used an thermal conductor from Arctic Cooling, and the temps seems to be better than with the ATI Graphic Card before! "bad" ATI 3650 "good" NVidia FX770m (9600GTm) Changing the Wifi card is quite easy and is described in the service manual If you're done changing your hardware, boot up windows, check if everythings working properly. Install new graphic card drivers / wlan drivers.... and head up to Chapter 2 ! Cheers, Gumman --- if you'll find any Typo's or misspelling, I'm not a native speaker --
  13. Hi yeuthem, if you need help for your VAIO, then you'll have to look up the forums I can and will only help users that have a hp 8530p/w, but if I look at your specs, i'm pretty sure that you won't get your ATI HD 3650 with 3D acceleration working. Also that WIFI 5100 seems to be a hopeless case. So the options for you will be: Check if your notebook support switching of graphic cards (MXM-Slot) - and check if you can install another wifi pci express card into your notebook (and if you need to hack your bios to enable it). If I was wrong, and you also have a hp 8530p, then wait until i wrote the first chapters of my guide They will follow soon.... Cheers, Gumman
  14. Hey guys, this thread is about installing OS X on the HP8530p/w and how to enable most of the hardware. The guide consists of many different chapters.
