  1. Help! Trying to install Mac OS X on my Laptop

    Yeah, I'm not surprised there. There are TONS of laptops out there so it's best to check the compatibility of each component, compile all the necessary kexts, and then trial and error the results. I was looking at the proven compatible notebooks, and I'm not a fan of any of them, so that's what I'm going to have to do. I don't see the Turion II even mentioned on the database, so you'l probably have to search the forums or just see if it works. It looks like your GPU is actually an HD 3450, so this should work http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversi...hp/t264908.html That's why you have to search those by Device ID. That covers the CPU and GPU. Now you need to find out what touchpad and you have, if your USB ports work, media drive, card readers, sound, motherboard, webcam, wifi (most likely not) bluetooth, and ethernet ports are compatible. Just check all the device IDs and you'll find it if it's available. If you DO get it up and running, then please start a thread on it or add it to the database and wiki. Best of Luck! You can also download this http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=235523 and it will check your configuration and auto patch your DSDT. Since your model isn't listed, select "not present?" at the top and submit your DSDT and they will patch it.
  2. Help! Trying to install Mac OS X on my Laptop

    Have you read this? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...&pid=757321 Your biggest problem is going to be that you have an AMD processor, so nothing is going to run stock since Macs looks for intel. That said, you need to get the vendor IDs of your components and search the "Hardware Compatibility List" for each thing in order to see what is needed (if possible) to make it work. You said there were 3 different kernels and you selected them all. Wy not try each one separately and see which one worked? You say you've been trying for 5 years and you've reached a boiling point? In this 5 years time why have you not bothered to read the basics of OSx86, googled your error, or just gotten another more compatible computer set up. http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...0.6.8/Portables It isn't there, so unless you search the hardware database with the info obtained from CPUZ and find the required steps to make each individual component work, and then compile them all together, you will never get OSX working on that laptop. As all the stickies have said, it's best to build a desktop made from compatible hardware or buy one of the laptops that have been tested to work if you must have one. Otherwise, you are really on your own as far as research.
  3. Introduce yourself

    Hello everyone.I'm not new to the OSx86 scene, however I haven't done it since 08 when i got a Macbook white for my birthday. Now that 3 yr old MB is showing its age and I need something more... Pro... I can see that there has been ALLOT of changes since I last tried a Hackintosh, so it looks like I'll be busy reading for awhile. My goal is to make a Hackbook Pro preferably with an i series CPU unless someone can talk me into staying C2D. I know that the wifi card is a huge issue, but if it's possible, I have no problem taking my airport card out of my macbook. So yeah that's where I am. If anyone has any comments or suggestions, then feel free to PM me or whatever...
  4. Well since everyone is just bashing, how about we look at it from a different angle. I have a Logitech Pro 9000 webcam this is FAR superior to the built-in isight, but every application i open, turns on the isight instead of the logitech unless there is a way to change in the app. The problem is that in QT, PB, and iMovie, there is no way to select the capturing device and it goes off of the 1st one available. How can I make the isight "unavailable" as in a notebook that doesn't have one?
  5. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    I have tried both of the ALC862 Installers and they did not work; were not detected. When I installed iATKOS, I had sound through my speakers, now, nothing How do I get sound working again? How do I figure out which drivers it patched the card with? I just installed Leo 3 days ago so I am an Uber noob, but I catch on pretty quickly I installed the patches by clicking, extracting, and running the installer (this is not a linux codec dump) rebooted Verified Permissions rebooted Went to system preferences>sound>no device found I am using a Toshiba A135-4527 and natively through iATKOS, I have full native display, working sound card, and, and working wifi TarugaALC862Installer1.zip TarugaALC862Installer2.zip
