    HP Pavilion DV7-6c90us best way to install?

    Bump. It's been months, I'm still taking some spare free time in trying to get this going. I realized that my network card is near impossible to get working, but I've had success in using EasyTether with my Android phone, I'll look for a microUSB WiFi adapter that is known to work eventually. Here's what I've gotten done so far. First thing, I've heard with these Pavilion laptops that only the Intel Graphics work, I'm fine with that. If I were to try any games, it would be a source title such as Counter Strike, those work on the Intel HD 3000 like butter on PC already. Now from what I've tried, I can't get past the Bluetooth on boot up to the installer. I have iAtkos on an 8GB flash drive, that's the only drive I have. I had to use the Chameleon Installer for Windows. I plan on buying a second flash drive today so I can try installing U n i b e a s t using a Virtual PC. Why? Because the version of Chameleon I'm using might be outdated since I used the Windows Installer version from 2009. Now, I'm stuck here right now. I use these flags, partially recommended by another Pavilion user, different model though, other parts added/changed by me to get this far. arch=x86_64 cpus=1 busratio=20 npci=0x2000 -x -v Every time I don't get a kernel panic, my computer hangs at ... [iOBluetoothHICIController::setConfigState] calling registerService EDIT: Got my second flash drive just now, I should be able to try U n i b e a s t . EDIT2: It said "boot0: Done" then went straight to Windows 7. I'll try an updated version of Chameleon somewhere.

    OSX Mountain Lion on HP Pavilion DV6

    I'm using an HP Pavilion DV7-6c90us. I want to dual boot Windows 7 and OS X, so if you could help possibly? Intel Inside Core i7-2670QM Quad Core @2.20GHz AMD Radeon HD 7470M Graphics and Intel HD 3000 (Switchable Graphics, switched to Fixed in BIOS) 8GB DDR3 RAM Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 (WiFi) Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller (Ethernet) I made a topic months ago and nobody replied... I'd like to try this again about now.
  3. I'm asking this because even though it's a DV7 series, they're all SO different individually for some reason. A friend of mine got a DV7 and it looks so much different than mine. I just want to know if anybody can give me any specific instructions for this specific model if that can help, because I failed miserably last few times I've tried, even though I've had it running on the first shot on my older netbook, which crashed the system when I tried upgrading to Lion while trying to access iTunes. Specs: Intel Inside Core i7-2670QM Quad Core @2.20GHz AMD Radeon HD 7470M Graphics and Intel HD 3000 (Switchable Graphics, switched to Fixed in BIOS) 8GB DDR3 RAM Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 (WiFi) Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller (Ethernet) If there are anymore specs that could be important, let me know. I'm currently dualbooting between Windows 8 Release Preview and Ubuntu 12.04.

    Help, won't boot!

    I posted a video on Youtube because I'm a visual person, I can't put it into words... Video's Description: "My battery died while booting into safe mode, and now this happens... How can I fix this?" The bootloader I'm using in front of the Darwin loader says the Mac partition is Leopard 10.5.8 but I forgot to rename it to Snow Leopard 10.6.3.

    Introduce yourself.

    I've been registered here for a while just for downloading purposes, but I wanted to communicate a bit and find a good spot on the forum to post an issue. Just passed both quizzes so I'll be off! Thanks to the iATKOS distro for leading me to this community!
