    HI,Some advice to install el capitan on this laptop ? HP ENVY 15-j022el cpu:intel 17-4700mq haswell 2.4ghz quad 8 threads ram: 16gb ddr3 chipset: hm 87 express gpu: hd 4600 , nvidia gt740m 2 gb audio: beats audio (IDT) this my first time on laptop http://support.hp.com/it-it/product/HP-ENVY-15-Notebook-PC-series/5354982/model/5404035/drivers Thanks in advance.
  3. Hello guys, I'm trying to install OS X El Capitan on my new HP Envy 17t m7-n101dx notebook. Before giving more details, I'd like to show you the configuration of this laptop: Intel i7-5500U processor 16GB RAM 1TB 5400rpm HDD that I will use for OS X (Windows will be installed on a 256GB SSD connected to the M.2 adapter; If OS X runs well I might consider installing it in the future on the SSD and use the HDD for Windows) Intel HD 5500 internal graphics, nVidia GeForce 940M 2GB 17.3 Full HD IPS touchscreen display Looking at those specs, in theory, I should be able to run OS X without any issues (I also made a hackintosh from my desktop in the past, so I have some ideas on how this process should be done). However, two weeks ago I tried to install El Capitan and I got some issues. I used my friend's MacBook to make a bootable installation using Clover. I got to the point where I could see the Apple logo and then an immediate crash (kernel panic issued by the HD 5500, after checking on some forums). I gave up when I read that I have to modify my BIOS for a custom DVMT allocation size and there is a possibility to kill my notebook's motherboard. I didn't knew what's the memory allocated for DVMT, so I booted Windows and saw that it is 128MB. When I did more research I found out that 128MB is fine for running this version of OS X, the laptops with 32MB allocation size have problems. Now, I would like to give this another try. Do you have an idea if I should use any patches or something? And can you explain to me why do I have problems with Intel HD 5500 and this DVMT allocation size when I have nVidia GeForce 940M? Thank you.

I am using this guide to do so (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/303615-guide-install-windows-8-uefi-on-legacy-bios-with-clover-and-dual-boot-with-yosemite/).

  7. HP Envy 700-109c

    Hello, I recently purchased an HP Envy 700-109c and I'm curious about trying a Hackintosh install. I would have built the PC myself, but for the price ($599), I couldn't really beat this machine. Anyway, the motherboard concerns me a bit in regards to compatibility. I'd also like to upgrade the graphics card sometime in the near future, so I'm not sure if that'll be an issue (assuming I buy a compatible card). I'd appreciate any help!

  9. Greetings my fellow hackers! I've run into a bit of a conundrum. I've recently created a Mavericks installation usb, i'm trying to upgrade from Mountain Lion 10.8.3. I installed Clover as the bootloader on the usb, and spent all of last night until i realised that i missed the USB 3.0 driver, solved that thank God. Now however, it seems like my current hurdle is the message "This disk cannot be used to start up your computer" when i try and select the partition/drive i want to install Mavericks to. I've read around and it seems like the suggestions everyone gives is to shrink the targeted partition slightly (1Gb) with disk utility, and try again. I've tried this, and am still getting the same result. The other suggestion i've read is to format the whole drive clean and then try to install. My goal however is to do an in-place upgrade without losing files and already-installed apps, especially since i don't have access to another hackintosh, legit mac, or computer capable of booting into the installer to fresh install (originally installed ML with this latter method). A clean install is going to be my last resort, and i actually don't think i'd have that many issues this time around. Clover boot manager seems to have prevented the issues i usually have with my limited access HP BIOS settings.

  11. Hello all, I have successfully installed 10.8 on a partition on my HP ENVY dv6-7247cl and am able to update to 10.8.1. After using the 10.8.2 delta update or the 10.8.4 combo update, however, I encounter "Still waiting for root device" when attempting to boot. Though I have scoured forums all over the internet, I cannot identify the cause or find a solution. Any help for this inexperienced hackintosher would be greatly appreciated! Edit: Managed to install 10.9 DP1 on another partition, but I still get "Still waiting for root device." If anyone could offer some ideas, that would be fantastic. Below are what I figure are the important specs as reported using AIDA64; if any more information is needed, please ask.

All of that hard work, time and effort will remain here on the first page for as long as possible for both reference and historical purposes.

    I am excited to start on my OSX endeavors with the community here. First I will start with my build: HP ENVY m6-1205dx AMD a10-4600m Quadcore AMD Radeon HD 7660G Some multi DVD drive(does it matter?) Realyek PCIe gigabit controller Atheros wireless AR9485 I dont know what sound chipset or USB3.0 OR USB2.0 Will post when i find out! Now I'm sure you are face palming and saying, AMD! No! But i believe it will just make this project more fun to tinker with! I have decent knowledge of computers, but not of OSX underlings, can get around just fine with the OS since i have to for work (work at some place that fixes computers with a synonym for "nerd posse") So! This is were i am at, i have Niresh 10.8.2 and have gotten to boot to disk etc I have tried the amd boot option with -v verbose but it seems to not load the amd kernel in niresh, after some digging i found the "Kernel Cache"=\amd and the unit just restarts So i tried also amd hp -v and it appears to try and load but it just freezes no indication of loading after 30min of sitting idle on black screen So finally to my question Anyone have any other boot command ideas to push me in the right direction I was wondering just like i found out on niresh the amd boot option was "Kernel Cache"=\amd any one know what the hp boot options actually does? would love to manually enter both amd and hp boot options to see if i can tinker with those and make it to another screen past black Thanks for the help! Oh and if this is not the right sub forum to post in, please point me to the right one to create a topic Thank you all! Happy Hackintoshing! John
  14. I have successfully installed MacOS 10.8.3 on an HP Envy 3D 2100 CTO laptop. I have an Intel i7 2860QM CPU (Sandy), and for graphics it is Intel HD3000 and ATI Radeon 6770m (Chipset is 6 series). Both GPUs are recognized by the mac (I can see them in System Information). However, the only graphics I see are on an external display connected via HDMI. During boot, I can see the verbose output of the bootloader on my internal display, but when Mac OS is fully booted the login screen only shows up on the external monitor. I've seen the EDID injection guide, but when I follow the steps the only EDID I get is that of my external monitor. When I boot windows and get EDID of internal display, then try to do the EDID injection again, it doesn't work (I don't have all the necessary numbers and ids to use for folder and file names). Has anybody seen this problem? More importantly, has anybody solved this problem? If you have any info or ideas, I would appreciate both. Also, I'm ready to give any detailed info or upload my dsdt/ioreg (or anything else). I'm pretty determined to fix this damn thing. Thanks in advance!

  15. Hello everyone, After a lot of hussle making a ##### flash drive on a virtual machine, I tried to install ML ( downloaded from AppStore ) on my HP Envy 15 1190eo ( i7 720qm, ati mobility radeon 5830 ). First I had a problem which I passed using the "cpus=1 busratio=12". Then I had a problem with my usb. Which I solved using "-x" flag. I tried using USBBusFix=True, GraphicsEnabler=No, npci=0x3000, but same problem: I checked my bios settings, no ACPI settings, and also I only have 2 USB ports which I think are 3.0 LE: I checked in Windows and it seems I have ACPI enabled, if it matters (Under Device Manager it says "ACPI x64-based PC" Could this be because my 2 partitions are used by Windows? I dont plan to keep Windows, but need a working Operating System. Also, my laptop has no DVD-RW, and my Apple Superdrive is not working on this laptop ( heard it's limited only to original Apple pc's ). Thanks, George
  16. HP Envy 2280NR
