  2. Hi guys, First of all: Sorry for my english. I decided to install Mavericks on my notebook, HP Sleekbook b040sl. Here are the specs: CPU: Intel i5 3317U Chipset: HM77 Express Graphics: Nvidia GT 630M (That can't work), Intel HD 4000 WLAN: Qualcomm atheros ar9485 Touchpad: Synaptics I've upgraded RAM from 4 to 8GB. More specs at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=it&lc=it&dlc=it&tmp_geoLoc=true&docname=c03565612 I want to install OS X 1.9 on a 30GB MBR partition on my original HDD with W8.1 with a bootloader. I am reading guides, googling, but I want to know the best guide for installing OSX and I think that is the all-in-one in tutorials section. I know that Nvidia won't work. Another question: is there any kext or others methods to make ar9485 work? Thank you guys. I've a virtualized iAtkos ML with VMWARE for doing mac things.
  3. I have noticed that there not many guides out there for installing Mountain Lion on Intel HM 77 chipset laptops. So I thought of sharing my experience on Installing ML on my HP Sleekbook 15t (b001-ee). Hardware Specs: BIOS Manufacturer: Insyde. BIOS Type: UEFI - LOCKED (with support for legacy boot) Core i3 3217U @ 1.8 Ghz (2 Cores, 4 threads) 4GB Samsung DDR3 1600 RAID 500 GB HDD IDT High Definition Audio Atheros Bluetooth (Device ID: 0311f) Atheros AR9565 NVIDIA OPTIMUS (Geforce GT 630m - PCIe + Intel HD 4000 - Built In) Realtek RTL 8101E/8102E Ethernet What Works? Proper Detection Of CPU, RAM USB 2.0 and 3.0 Ethernet (recognized as RTL 8169) Intel HD 4000 Graphics (Quartz Extreme and Core Image Enabled) Bluetooth Trackpad IDT High Definition Audio (recognized as Intel HDA) Battery What does not work? NVIDIA Optimus Brightness keys (works only at boot) WIFI - Im using a micro Wifi USB from a manufacturer called 'Tenda' it uses Realtek RT2870 USB chip, this same chip is found on the more popular WIFI stick from D-Link (DWA-125). Latest drivers are readily available from the realtek website, I got usb from a shop near my place for $10, it might be even more cheaper online Booting OSx without USB - I need myself some guidance, because I have tried using clover to boot but it does not work at all unfortunately Installation: What do you need: > A Mac or a computer with Mac OSx 10.6.8 or Higher (a Virtual Machine is fine too, I installed using a VMware image of 10.8.3, google souldevteam for more details) > 8 GB USB > Retail DVD or copy of Mountain Lion What does Mac OSx need to prepare USB ML Installer? > Latest version of myHack app - myHack | Taking the iFail out of iHack - SojuGarden > Latest version of Chameleon Wizard -Hackintosh Chameleon Wizard 4.2.1 - Downloads - OSx86.net >Kext Wizard - Hackintosh Kext Wizard 3.7.10 - Downloads - OSx86.net What does the target laptop needs to be running? >The computer should already be running a windows OS at least with windows running on separate partition (It should se a GUID partition) OR a separate Hard Disk (recommended) > Windows OS should have MacDrive installed (trial version will do fine) Preparing ML USB: >Mount USB >Run myHack app, run "Create Mac Osx Installer" choose 10.8, select target your mounted USB now browse through the computer and select the Mountain Lion dmg/iso (InstallESD) or if its an app browse to your applications folder to find the installer. The copying process may take around 40 mins. The app may also ask to create Extra folder, just select generic >After the process is done, install extensions which I have attached using kext wizard on the USB choosing S/L/E folder to install. Delete Browse to S/L/E on the usb and delete AppleHDA kext, Repair permissions and rebuild caches using the same app. P.S. I didn't have a problem with getting my internal drives detected by the installer, but if you do come across a similar issue download the AHCI kexts I have attached and install along with the extensions files mentioned earlier. UPDATE: Added alternate AHCI and USB kext (which works for HP ENVY Sleekbook 6-1151er) - credit transmist >Launch Chameleon Wizard, install latest bootloader to your ML USB, select boothfs option not update. >In Chameleon Wizard app, goto Smbios tab, edit the smbios file and from the model presets choose Macbook Pro 9.2 and save the file to desktop >Copy smbios file from desktop and paste it to your Extra folder on your ML USB. Installing on target laptop >Go to BIOS, disable secure boot it might ask you for password. Enable Legacy Boot. Configure Boot Order to prioritize USB. Or using F9 key at boot which will allow you to choose USB >Boot from usb >Once at the bootloader screen, boot the installer using the following flags -v cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No >You should now be at the install screen >Goto disk utility and create GPT/GUID partition >Continue and install Mac OSx. Should take 15-20 mins >Near the end of installation myHack will ask for adding Extra folder again, install generic if you had not done this before or this time just choose the one you modified earlier in your USB, then later it will ask for removal of some kexts (ApplePolicyControl, NVD*** kexts) just select to remove them. >Once its done, restart and now boot into windows and access the ML drive where you just installed the OSx (as mentioned earlier, you should have MacDrive to view OSx drives) >Browse to System/Library/Extensions folder and delete the following kexts: AppleHDA, all AppleIntelHDGraphics4000 kexts, geforce kext, all GF*** kexts, all NVD*** kexts >Restart and boot from USB >Launch the installer again using the same boot flags as mentioned earlier >From Utilities run myHack and then run Myfix. This will fix permissions from the files you deleted using windows >Restart again and boot from USB >Now boot the Mac Osx drive, using same boot flags >If all went accordingly you should now have successfully booted to your Mountain Lion Post-Installation For this part you need to download the following: >10.8.3 Combo update OS X Mountain Lion Update v10.8.3 (Combo) - Support - Apple >Multi beest - Mountain Lion (http://www.tonymacx8...m/downloads.php - You need to be registered user to download) >Kernel Patch to fix all cores (cpus=1 issue) (check attachments) >Ethernet driver (check attachments) Your current Mountain Lion version is 10.8 download 10.8.3 Combo update from Apple website and install. DO NOT click restart just yet though. >Browse to System/Library/Extensions folder and delete the following kexts: AppleHDA, geforce kext, all GF*** kexts, all NVD*** kexts >Install the extensions that I provided again using Kext Wizard >Run Multi-beest, Expand Drivers & Bootloader>Misc> and select USB 3.0 Universal and PS/2 and install >Install Ethernet driver RTGNIC >Install Kernel Patch >Fix permissions using kext wizard and restart >Boot from USB >Now you can boot into your ML without any boot flags, you may use -v for debug or -f or -x if for some reason it fails to boot Latest version of chameleon bootloader will auto inject your HD 4000 graphics info and you should have QE/CI working Pls do share your experiences and help improve this guide for others THANKS!
