Hello, so i'm interested to try a hackintosh on my HP pavilion...

But i don't know how to do, and my HP pavilion doesn't have windows ( It has Linux Ubuntu ) and i don't know if making a hackintosh is possible on Linux Ubuntu...

 

Can someone explain me how to do a hackintosh and if it possible to do it on Linux Ubuntu ?

 

 

 

 

 

P.S: I already have a MacBook Pro, i want to do a hackintosh to have fun and to learn a few things.

 

 

 

Thanks :D

Nobody knows how to install a hackintosh on my HP pavilion ?

 

I'm sure plenty of people know how, but you're not providing any info. You can't make people guess at what hardware you have, or which exact model HP you have, or even make them look it up for you, it makes no sense at all.

 

You haven't provided the motherboard (with northbridge/southbridge), the processor, video card, RAM, NIC/Wifi (if applicable).

 

Installing osx86 is not like installing windows or linux where most hardware will have some form of support, unless you know your exact hardware then you're SOL.

Ok i'm gonna give infos if you need some :

 

So.

 

 

I have a Nvidia video card

I have a 1.83 Ghz Intel centrino Duo T2400

I have a Fujitsu hardware 120 GO

 

I have 2 GO RAM

 

And that's all i know.

 

 

 

I tried using Kalyway, but each time i want to burn it on a DVD it fails...

 

I tried BrazilMac(SSE3 only ), this one was burnt correctly on the DVD, but when I booted my Pavilion on the DVD it was written

Memory allocation error (Oxdeadbeef, 0x0 )

 

 

 

Can someone help me please ?

Hello, I tried lots of times to do a hackintosh... But each time I try, the BIOS shows me an error message after I boot on the DVD.

 

I tried Kalyway 10.5.2, but when it booted this message appeared 3 times

 

 EBIOS read error: Device timeout
Block-1705792 Sectors 64

 

 

I tried BrazilMac and Ideneb but both of them after the DVD boot shows me this message:

 

 Memory allocation error (Oxdeadbeef , 0x0 )

 

 

I tried the tutorial shown on this page http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=115877

 

But that was the result.

Please don't start a new topic just because the old one got no answers. Simply asking for help will get you nowhere. By the scarcity of information you have provided, you make it clear that you have expended very little effort to achieve your goal. Spend more time reading and experimenting.

I have dv8333cl (a dv8000 from costco)

It sounds like you have the same one as I do.

 

I have successfully installed OSX after many hours of tinkering with it.

 

iDeneb 10.5.5

customize with these options

-Audio : AC97Audio

-Chipset : ICHx Fix

-Fix : IOUSBFamilyFix, Powermanagement, PowerOff_Fix

-Video : Nvidia : NVinject 256

 

You can try other settings, but that's what worked for me.

 

after install follow the directions from the link below.

I had to do this to get my computer to run at 1.86GHz... otherwise, it just get stuck at 1GHz even with cpu load.

 

As for getting ethernet/wifi to work, I ended up going with a pccard cardbus option.

When I find out how to get that ethernet port to work, I'll post back.

 

And as for wifi, if your system is like mine, you should have Intel 3945 mini-pcie card.

Currently there's no working solution for that... though it is under development.

I went and tried few different mini-pcie cards... none of them worked so far.

I assume you need a modded BIOS to install it. Any chance you can link me to it? Or are owners of the dv8333cl ridiculously lucky and we can just throw in iDeneb and go? I have a dv8333cl also and would like to tinker (Already have my HP desktop running 10.5.5 :huh: )
