OS X on HP Pavilion a6010e

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Somebody gave me their HP Pavilion a6010e after I convinced them to get a Mac, and rather than disposing of it, I'd like to see if I can install OS X 10.5 or 10.6 on it. I haven't seen any posts describing that being done here, so I'm wondering if it's easily doable, and if so, how.

 

I know the HP has a 2.2 Ghz Athlon processor and an ASUS motherboard, but that's it.

 

So if anybody has done this and made it work, I'd like to hear about it, and exactly how to do it on this system.

I wrote a method for most PCs here. Let me know if it does or doesn't work.

That link takes me to a page that says:

Okay, I got the ModCD image and burned it to a CD, but after looking at it, inside one of the folders on the image (and now the CD, too) is a .dmg file. Is that supposed to be decompressed at some point, and if not, why is it there?

That dmg file is interpreted by the ModCD during bootup. Do not worry about any of the files on the disc. The dmg contains the patcher and extra packages for OSx86 installation.
