Lion on HP dv6 Series/ 6B55 eg

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello everyone,

 

after getting OS X started on some dell products, I am trying to put it on my HP DV6 6b55 eg. I started with iAtkos L2, but I had no succes starting the boot... after the countdown, it stucks on the starting screen and did nothing, the same on key pressing and F8. I tried rBoot and chameleon Bootloader, but i had kp on both. I tried also iAtkos s3 and the retail DVD without succes. I don't why hp didn't released an advanced bios (because there is no sATA/AHCI), so I have no idea if sATA runs on AHCI :(.

 

it restarts on other bootloaders...

 

Some specs:

 

- Intel core i7 QM 2670

-Radeon HD 6770 M

 

 

I hope you can help.

Thanks for reading and answering

 

P.S.: Sorry for my English... I am an 16 year old student from Germany :D and I hope there are not to much commata xD

      I have a HP 840 G3 that was donated to me to Hackintosh, currently running High Sierra 10.13.6. This should work for the 840 G2 and you may even have more luck with the 840 G1 with the WiFi that PCIe.
       
      My method to install OS X on the SSD from a working real Mac via SSD to USB converter. I then install Clover and add my kexts ad set the config.plist
       
      Not working
      SD Card reader
       
      Working
      Video - screen looks better in OS X then it does in Windows 10
      VGA port
      WiFi and BlueTooth working OOO using the below hack
      Battery status with Rehabman's DSDT patch
      Brightness controls
      Sounds - using VoodooHDA
      Microphone - cannot turn it off or mute
      Keyboard backlight - controlled though BIOS anyways
      touchpad - using VoodooPS2Controller
      USB3 - this laptop has two on board only and I haven't test them using the docking station
      USB3.1 C
      Ethernet - using IntelMausiEthernet
      Sleep - kind of, closing the lid doesn't go to sleep but goes to sleep over time.
       
      Not tested
      This laptop does not have a Webcam - enterprise model.
      Display port
      Finger Print device
       
      For me what keeps this from being a day to day usable laptop (Mac Book) is the WiFi + Bluetooth, not having battery percentage could be an issue later though.
       
      Clover_folder for those that want to play along.

      Hello every body first of all my english is kinda bad sorry !!
       
      this is my first topic sorry if its in the wrong place !!
       
      I got a ATI mobility radeon hd 4500 on hp notebook pavillion dv6 "legacy" mod NO UEFI.
       
      So i downloaded mackintosh yosemite from "hackintoshzone.com" on windows and restored it using Transmac on a usb
       
      after that i installed yosemite on my "HP PAVILION DV6" and every thing worked just fine .But the only problem is the graphics
       
      its glitching and lagging a little bit . and after  while i realized that the problem is in the Vram its just 3mb.
       
      I googled this problem and i only get some solution using clover wich i can't use i guess because i only have LEGACY on my notebook but i do have chameleon installed by default ??!!
       
      plz this problem is the only thing left so heeeelp
       
      AND I don't know a lot of stuff about this so go easy  with the solutions pls if there any !

      Requirements
      Pendrive 2.0 (>=8GB) "Install macOS Sierra app" (https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/macos-sierra/id1127487414?l=en)(Around 5GB) Working Mac  
      Installing Clover to USB
      Get a USB 2.0 Pendrive (8GB and above)
      Before you can partition the USB, you must determine what the disk identifier is. With the USB plugged in to the computer, use 'diskutil list':

      In Terminal:
      diskutil list In my case, output:
      /dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_CoreStorage MacOS 500.4 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s5 4: Microsoft Basic Data DATA 498.8 GB disk0s4 /dev/disk1 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: Pendrive *8.0 GB disk1 As you can see my pendrive is available at /dev/disk1 (check yours).
      Now we are going to create partitions, In Terminal:
      diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk1 1 GPT HFS+J "install_macos" R Output:
      Started partitioning on disk1 Unmounting disk Creating the partition map Waiting for the disks to reappear Formatting disk1s2 as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with name install_osx Initialized /dev/rdisk1s2 as a 7 GB case-insensitive HFS Plus volume with a 8192k journal Mounting disk Finished partitioning on disk1 /dev/disk1 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *8.0 GB disk1 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Apple_HFS install_macos 7.7 GB disk1s2 Now as you can see partitions are created and your pendrive is ready to install clover.
      Download the Clover installer. Current builds are available on sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) 
      After Downloading the Clover installer,
      Install it to the Target "install_macos" partition  using "Change Install Location". Select "Customize". Check "Install for UEFI booting only", "Install Clover in the ESP" will automatically selected. Check "BGM" from Themes. Check "AptioMemoryFix.efi", "EmuVariableUefi-64.efi", "OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi" from Drivers64UEFI. After making your selections, Click "Install". Finally, one more EFI driver is needed, HFSPlus.efi:
      Download from : https://github.com/JrCs/CloverGrowerPro/raw/master/Files/HFSPlus/X64/HFSPlus.efi. Copy to /EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI.  
      Kext Setup
      Remove all folders from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/ except 'Other'. Now Download These, FakeSMC.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-FakeSMC-kozlek VoodooPS2Controller.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller USBInjectAll.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All Lilu.kext: https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu IntelGraphicsFixup.kext: https://github.com/lvs1974/IntelGraphicsFixup RealtekRTL8100.kext: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/259-realtekrtl8100-binary/  
      Setting config.plist
      Download it from the attachments, Unzip and replace EFI/CLOVER/config.plist
       
      Building the MacOS Installer
      In Terminal : 
      sudo "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/install_macos --applicationpath "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app" --nointeraction sudo diskutil rename "Install macOS Sierra" install_macos Now your Bootable USB is ready to install. Turn off your Laptop.
       
      Installing 
      Make sure you have adequate bios settings
       
      Then Follow:
      Power on laptop with pendrive connected to it. Continuously press "ESC". Select "Boot From USB" (i.e. F9) and select pendrive from the menu. Now it boots into Clover, with left-right arrow, select options. Select "Graphics Injector Menu". Under "Inject Intel" select "FakeID" and replace "0x00000000" to "0x12345678". Now return to main screen and select "install_macos". When grey screen comes, select DiskUtility. Format whole Hard Disk as "Mac Os Extended (Journaled)" with Name as "MacOS" Now quit DiskUtility and click "Install Mac OS Sierra" and select the newly created partition in previous step. Now installer will begin installing files (~15-20mins) and the restart. After restart again boot into clover(Follow Step 1-5) and again select "install_macos". Now Install screen will appear and continue installation. This time installer will install files to your target partition and create Recovery HD partition. Later on restarts. After restart again boot into clover(Follow Step 1-5) and again select "MacOS". If everything goes well, you will finish up the installation process and arrive at the Mac OS Sierra desktop.  
      Install clover to hdd.
      Congratulations!! Your Installation is complete!! 
      Now you need to fix things one by one.
       
      Will Provide fixes when I get time.

      Hola gente, como va? Yo volviendo al foro después de mucho tiempo.
      Le cuento que mi primer experiencia en osx86 fue con mi querida y difunta ya asus k50af.
      Imaginen instalar el retail de snow leopard en ese bicho con un amd Athlony un video dedicado ati.
      Luego de mucho intentar, anda x el foro con mi otro usuario nestornillado,  me di por vencido.
      No sin antes llegar a lograr que arranque el sistema con el mod cd, pero bueno era muy poco funcional.
      Fui y consegui usada una Thinkpad t400 Intel Core 2 Duo P8600.
      Intel 4500MHD.
      Para mi sorpresa todo fue muy bien de una. arranco perfecto. todo funcionaba.
      Menos el wifi pero le mande el cable de red y disfrute mucho de ella.
      A tal punto que logre instalar el garage band y me senti un gran HACKER.
      Todos muy lindos recuerdos hasta que la bios se re fundió y me quede en la pampa y la via otra vez.
      Hoy vuelvo al foro para empezar de cero con dos nuevas maquinas.
      Tengo una HP1000 que tiene un I3 de tercera generacion y una placa de video intel hd3000.
      Ademas, la cereza del postre, una MSI GV62 7RD que tiene un I7 7700HQ y una placa de video dedicada GTX 1050.
      Desde ya les voy agradecer cualquier orientación al respecto ya que pensaba instalar snow leopard pero por lo que vi esta bastante caduco el sistema. y Mas aun el mod cd.
      Que me recomiendan? voy por el High Sierra con el metodo de instalacion Clover Efi?
      LA verdad es que mucho no entiendo y el metodo de mod cd era facilisimo, pero le voy a poner mucho ímpetu si me ayudan.
      Aparte estoy interesado en instalar paralelo el windows 10 que la lo tengo legal en las maquinas de fabrica y me es¿ncantaria tambien tener una distribución linux, que de hecho estoy pensando en Darwin Os aunque soy mas de ubuntu ultimate.
      Desde ya agradezco su colaboraion y existencia me encanta el foro y ojala pueda aprender mucho mas con ustedes.
      Los saludo a todos muy atte,
