Mac OSX 10.6.6 on HP DV9500t - Wireless wont work.

I've been trying to get the latest Snow Leopard on my HP DV9500t

(specs here: http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/hp-pavilio...7-32432739.html )


I used this well-known guide to get it installed:

I have everything working like the sound, mouse, keyboard, graphics, audio. The only problem is I cant get the stupid wireless to work. Using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] the furthest I can get is where the Network Diagnostic acknowledges the fact I can connect, but it just wont connect. When it asks me what method I want to use to connect to the internet, everything is greyed out except for Ethernet and Other. I'm new to OSX, but I'm pretty sure for wireless use, I'd have to select Airport, and it isn't letting me.


I've tried everything. virtualbox on my AMD pc (didnt work)

Virtualbox on my dv9500t (big hassle, kernel panic)

hackintosh on dv500t (wireless issue stated above)


It seems I might just have to buy a darn mac if I want to get into iOS developement.

As i remember,you have an Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN which is a total no-go......Sry.There was some work at http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/ but.. Anyway,just get an Airport miniPCI-e card off of ebay for like .. 15 $ and swap it with your current. :) Or one of the supported WI-FI USB dongles that work just fine. RTL8187 chipset based,some Broadcom,and Atheros..Google around a bit and search the forum.There are also methods on re-branding the card and modifying the BIOS if it is blacklisted in your laptop's BIOS etc etc...
