first if you want to use dualboot with vista you must get a gparted cd (you can google it)

also my advise is to use ideneb v1.3 dvd because it is very stable and it is the latest osx10.5.5 ...


and good luck :( if you try for once you couldn't get your self to try more...

I installed iDeneb 10.5.5 but i erased it and installed kaliway 10.5.2 because it boots faster, the problem at the first boot after pressing "do not transfer my information now" is apparently because there is no firewire. It's strange because this problem does not appear with iDeneb, or kaliway on other laptops.

I found on the forum the way to bypass the step:

Boot with '-s' at the first boot

type 'mount -uw /'

type 'passwd root' to create a root password and type the new password

type ' touch /var/db/AppleSetupDone' to bypass the configuration boot

type 'exit' to continue booting

Of course you will need to configure a new account and all your preferences after.


For the installation of kaliway on hp550 (mine is fs343AA), you need not to check any video drivers, and afterwards install leopardgraphicsupdate from the apple website, and without rebooting install the 2 kexts named "AppleIntelGMAX3100" and "AppleIntelGMAX3100FB" attached. It is special because the device id is 2a12 and not 2a02 as most of laptops.


For the sound, you need to download the installer from Amine http://rapidshare.com/files/142718687/Appl...DI1981.zip.html

but you will not have the headphones working.


I didn't manage to get the lan working, and the wifi (intel 4965) may be hopeless. I tried installing another hp wifi card (broadcom 4311) but the bios doesn't like it.


The powermangement works : it indicates the battery level and the sleep works. You may install the vanille kernel and follow the indications in the archive attached. The battery longs around 2 hours i don't know exactly.


The bluetooth works great "Out of the box".

I confirm now lan(82562GT) and wifi working (change the pci-e card for a 4312 broadcom on ebay).

If someone is interested I will post the method.


Now just the jack is missing, and maybe the vga-out I didn't try.

Hola!.. Soy nuevo en esto del Hackintosh y tengo una HP 550. Ayer instale iATKOS v7 y luego de varias configuraciones logre que arrancara.. El unico inconveniente es la placa de video, ya que solo me reconoce 1024x768 de resolucion cuando en realidad tendria que ser de 1280x800. Mis preguntas son :


1) Como hago para instalar esos archivos del X3100 que subiste ?


2) Es posible que mi chip grafico no sea 0x2a12 ?


3) Si es afirmativa la respuesta a 2) como hago para saber si es 0x2a12 o 0x2a02 ?


Muchas gracias por dar soluciones a los usuarios de esta laptop. Saludos
