Recommended Posts

:( Hay guys love you site btw. I was wondering how i could install mac os on my HP Pavilion p6110f desktop computer? I just want to know if mac OS will support everything in this PC cause i don't want to try to install it and screw something up that's a bad choice. Here is the specs of my PC.

 

System Manufacturer: HP -Pavilion

System Model: NY428AA-ABA p6110f

BIOS: BIOS Date: 05/06/09 11:31:10 Ver: 5.39

Processor: Pentium® Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.6GHz

Memory: 6144MB RAM

Page file: 2192MB used, 10073MB available

DirectX Version: DirectX 11

 

Display

 

Name: Intel® G33/G31 Express Chipset Family

 

Sound

 

Name: (Realtek High Definition Audio)

 

Well i think that sums up all the specs i got and its brand new just barely got it. If someone can please help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks and Happy Holidays! :P

I've been banging my head against my desk trying to get Snow Leopard up and running on the very same system for about 8 months now. Great computer, I just really would love to run OS X on it.

My system is running 7 gigs of ram and I added a newer nVidia video card, as well as four additional hard drives; other than that the system is OEM.

 

I've done around forty installs - seriously - and the best I've managed is getting the "SnowLeo" distro to install and boot... sort of. If you try this one, be sure to use the -v and cpus=1 flags, otherwise the installer will crash while loading. It has two kernels to choose from, Chocolate and another one whose name I cannot remember for the life of me all the sudden. The Chocolate kernel won't work with this mobo; use the other kernel.

 

I think my problem at this point is that none of the available nVidia kext injectors like my particular video card. As soon as the "Welcome" movie starts to play, playback slows to a major crawl. About five minutes later the first screen of the user account setup pops up and that's when the system freezes.

 

I haven't tried an install using the HP's onboard Intel video yet but in my experience with a few other laptops and desktops, OS X doesn't play well with Intel video.

 

I noticed the original post was from the end of last year; I wonder if the poster has made any further progress?

Solid, you would get past that problem with the loading video by running your first boot with "-f -x -v". It skips the Welcome video.

    • I had a weird situation, after running great for a while: yesterday I did a reboot and got a KP. Turns out the AstekFusion2Adapter kexts were causing the KP, strange thing is I didn't recall applying any update or a like.  I had to boot with the USB installer, mount the EFI partition to delete the old AstekFusion2Adapter kexts and replaced with the patched version contributed by despeinao. I'm glad the system is working again, not having to reinstall OSX.
    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
      Grazie   Ho creato un configplist , se vuoi provare , dovrebbe essere pulito da ogni impurità , se funziona dovrai adattarli tutte le tue personalizzazioni x il boot ..... config.plist.zip
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
    • yes it is. i can boot using a backup from a backup of my clover. i am just trying to fix the VGA /HDMI so i tried using the clover i got from Allan
