[Guide] Lion installation on HP DV6 6020el

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

following the tips on this guide i've been able to install lion on my hp dv6 pavilion...

1. What do you need:

2. Installation procedure Lion on USB

 

First of all, to create bootable installation USB drive read also this topic from tonymacx86.

  • Copy the release of lion in Application folder in your VM or working mac
  • Right click on it, show pakage content and mount installESD.dmg (and this should be enough according to the guide, but on my VM didn't worked and i had to do the following in order to run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url])
  • Use Showhiddenfiles app to show the contents of installESD and mount also baseSystem.dmg
  • Insert USB stick or hard drive and go to disk utility and create an MBR partition (i named it "[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]") with Extended MacOS (journaled).
  • Run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and chose the drive where you want to install it (USB drive)
  • Check the boxes: "mac app store..." and "laptop support" and then start...
  • Sometimes this procedure fails, if this happen start again formatting again the USB drive
  • At the end of the installation copy in the USB also [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], Kext wizard and showhiddenfiles, mach_kernel in order to complete the installation on your HD.

3. Insert USB drive as created before, start the pc enter the boot device priority (f8 key) and chose USB

4. You will probably need some kernel flags to begin installation: I used these flags:

 

cpus=1 busratio=XX -x -v

 

Where instead of XX you have to put the busratio you found on the intel specification page of your processor (for me for example, an i5 2410M was XX=23)

5. Format the Installation HD as "guid" with Extended MacOS (journaled). During installation you wil probably be asked to insert an usb keyboard (you wiill need this keyboard only for few second)

6. After installation is complete reboot using USB as bootloader and choosing the installation HD. Boot with the same flags you used for the installation

7. When desktop appears run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and install Chimera bootloader.

8. Open USB installation drive and, using showhiddenfiles, find the folder /Extra and copy it on the OS Hard Disk

9. Copy in HD/Extra the mach_kernel downloaded before

10. Open HD/Extra and modify the file org.chameleon.Boot.plist in this way

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/ PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
 <key>Boot Banner</key>
 <string>No</string>
 <key>Kernel</key>
 <string>/Extra/mach_kernel</string>
 <key>Kernel Flags</key>
 <string>busratio=23</string>
 <key>Legacy Logo</key>
 <string>Yes</string>
 <key>Instant Menu</key>
 <string>Yes</string>
</dict>
</plist>

 

11. AUDIO:

  • Open the attached file and copy HDAIDT.kext in your /Extra/Extensions (E/E) folder
  • Go in /System/Library/extensions (S/L/E) and delete AppleHDA.kext
  • Run [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and install driver Audio : Realtek AppleHDA.kext rollback
  • P.S. Everytime you will upgrade the OS you will probably need to do this procedure to obtain audio.

12. BATTERY:

  • Open the attached folder (Battery Lion) and copy voodoobattery.kext in E/E
  • Open S/L/E and delete AppleACPIPlatform.kext and then insert in S/L/E the one in Battery Lion folder

13. Run Kext wizard in order to repair permissions of both E/E and S/L/E (check all the boxes)

14. Reboot (probably will still need some flags to boot i can't remeber :D )

15. If everything works now you can run the speedstepper 10.7.2 (download it from here, and follow the instructions... many thanks to flAked)

16. If it works good (a smiley on your terminal at the end of speedstepper) now you can delete NullCPUPowerManagement from E/E and you can add to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist these strings:

<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>

 

17. Rebuilt permissions with kext wizard

18. reboot

19. try MRSDumper to debug P-State

20. Insert DSDT (in the attached file) in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist

21. Attached you will find also the Extra folder i use at the moment and that you can use if you reached the point 20 before... the only thing that miss in this folder is the mach_kernel (cause too big to attach) that you can find in the link i posted initially

 

WHAT WORKS:

- USB2.0

- SLEEP

- VOLUME SLIDER

- AUDIO

- BATTERY

- WIFI (AFTER BIOS MODDING WITH WITHELIST REMOVAL, DEVICE IN MY SIGNATURE)

- WIRED ETHERNET Realtek RTL8168/8111

- VIDEO (ONLY INTEL HD300)

 

NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: DEVICES NOT WORKING (HELP NEEDED!!!)

- USB3.0 NEC/RENESAS: Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller [1033-0194](*)

- SECOND GPU: Radeon ™ HD 6490M [1002-6760](*)

- SD CARD READER: Realtek PCIE CardReader [10EC-5209]

- FACETIME AND ICLOUD NOT LOGGING IN

Of course i already tried it... OS recognizes Super-Speed BUS but when i plug anything in, OS freeze... i think it's a problem due to AppleACPIPlatform. I've tried several and several PXHCD with the same results... let me know if you have any idea about it

THX

youupdated to 10.7.3?

 

Not yet, cause i'm not interested at the moment... but i suggest to do a backup copy of AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement ( cause i patched it for sppeedstep) and then restore audio as i suggested in my post...

let me know if there are some problems

For FaceTime and iCloud, you may want to check/recheck the serial number in your smbios. There is a utility (chameleon wizard?) that has a function to generate serial numbers. I remembering running into an iCloud issue where the account was recognized but any attempt to log in ended with an error. Generating a new serial helped with iCloud. I don't have a webcam so I can't comment on FaceTime, but my suspicion is that having a "legit" serial number should also correct the login issue there as well.

 

As for USB 3 (I saw your post in that thread), is it possible that it could be a power issue -- or the lack of? Were you on battery only when you plugged in the device? Have you tried an external USB 3 with its own power source, or plug in the laptop to the wall before attaching the USB 3 device?

io ho già installato tramite usb con ###### ecc ecc... sto cercando varie ottimizzazioni che in parte ho trovato ora nella tua guida...!!! (batteria e audio che va malissimo con le voodooHDA) Grandeee Bel lavoro.. :thumbsup_anim:

domani le provo...a tal proposito volevo chiedere a gabriele se il tuo dsdt potrebbe funzionare con il mio hardware???

Io ho provato a crearlo con DSDTSE ma mi da errori che non trovo nelle guide :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:

sei riuscito a moddare il bios? utilizzi la mia stessa scheda wi-fi ovvero brc4313 e ti funziona?

ho provato a moddare il bios con pessimi risultati... infatti ho Insidy F.1B

Con questo kernel della tua guida vanno tutti e 8 i core della CPU??? (il mio si avvia solo con cpus=1 (ovvero 1 core) potrebbe funzionare se ho già aggiornato alla 10.7.3? tra l'altro dagli aggiornamenti di sistema ed è filato tutto liscio!!!

Da qualche parte ho trovato delle kext ATI60xx??? hai provato qualcosa?? a me appare il nome Radeon HD6770M PCIe della scheda video sul pannello informazioni di sistema e sembrerebbe che gestisce l'HDMI???

sono determinato nel mio obbiettivo.!!!!!!!

Attendo impaziente :tomato: :tomato:

Il problema è che ogni istallazione è a se stante... Non è detto che ti funzioni tutto se segui la mia guida. E' molto probabile che funzioni se segui la procedura dall'inizio. Per la 10.7.3 non ho provato a fare niente perchè non reputavo necessari gli aggiornamenti e non mi volevo sbattere oltre, dato che sono soddisfatto dei risultati ottenuti.

  • Quindi non so dirti se il kernel funziona anche con la 7.3, dovresti cercare qualcosa nei vari forum se non erro avevo già letto in merito.
  • Per quanto riguarda la DSDT ti potrei dire di più se aggiungessi come firma le tue caratteristiche hardware (ti consiglio di farlo anche per permettere ad altri di darti una mano).
  • Per la doppia scheda video ho provato qualcosa ma sembra che non funzioni (almeno sul mio pc).
  • Il mod del Bios serve semplicemente a rimuovere la whitelist dell'hardware consentito dal Bios in modo da poter installare una scheda Wifi Mac compatibile.

Spero di esserti stato d'aiuto. Ho vissuto in prima persona i problemi che stai vivendo tu e ti capisco... Tuttavia ti consiglio di cercare e leggere nei vari forum... ci sono le risposte a quasi tutte le domande che ti stai ponendo, anche perchè l'hardware in circolazione bene o male è sempre quello...

 

P.S. Dai una letta anche qui http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=267974&st=0

 

A presto

Grazie per il tempo e le delucidazioni... si vede che sono novello di forum....

cmq adesso ho inserito la firma o almeno spero :wink2:

potresti essere più dettagliato su come rimuovere la whitelist e indicarmi una scheda wi-fi mac compatibile??!??

visto che non è portatile senza wi-fi :wallbash: :wallbash:

sto da 15 gg col cavo eternet dietro :fishing1:

ehehehh

Grazie

Simple fix for iCloud, AppStore, FaceTime login...

 

Simply reinstall your dsdt.aml file from the desktop using MltyBeest latest.

 

Don't ask me how or why it works... BUT IT DOES!!!! guaranteed fix, read about it on another OSX86 forum.

 

Doesn't need to be a new dsdt, but it needs to be installed with Lion MltyBeest (from desktop).

 

Cheers, and best of luck!

      HP DV6 2170 SV Intel I5 Nvidia Gforce Cuda but no to my desktop. The only  way to install hackintosh on HP Z400 for me is with Niresh Zone Installation. When I try  niresh usb on laptop does not work...
      So the vanilla usb is working perfect on laptop but no on desktop and Niresh usb is working perfect on Desktop by no to my laptop.
      My question is; is there someone to help me where is the diference and what is wrong? thank you in advance....

      Ciao a  tutti sono nuovo di questo forum o meglio seguo con piacere e già ho alle spalle diversi progetti hackintosh ma la prima volta che mi cimento con i portatili.
      Il laptop in questione è il Pavilion 15-cb028nl e per tutti quelli che intendono acquistarlo posso dire che è abbastanza hackintosh compatible!
      Ho installato Sierra tramite immagine per laptop presa da un sito turco e dopo varie ricerche sono riuscito a far funzionare le seguenti cose:
      Audio e mic
      CPU e mobo sensors
      Video ma riconosce solo la scheda intel non la GTX1050
      Touchpad con multi gestures
      USB3 
      Stop e reboot 
      Webcam
       
      Adesso viene la parte complicata, vorrei effettuare la patch del DSDT per avere anche la batteria, la luminosità dello schermo de ottimizzare un po' meglio il sistema.
      Ma purtroppo è la prima volta che mi imbatto nel patchare il dsdt e qui mi fermo perchè anche seguendo le guide sia in italiano che in inglese non riesco a risolvere gli errori nella compilazione.
      Sono riuscito ad estrarre e decompilare con iasl il file originale creato da clover (F4).
      Qualcuno molto più pratico, gentile e disponibile potrebbe risolvere gli errori del dsdt, ve ne sarei grato!!!
      Per chi avesse il mio stesso portatile allego la cartella clover con tutti i kexts e il lavoro fatto fino ad ora. 
      Grazie mille!!

      This is a preliminary Mac OS driver installer for laptop HP Pavilion G6-2209SS with support for dual boot Bootloader. Maybe it can be installed on other HP Pavillion G6 series laptops, but in some cases additional fixes will have to be made.
       
      I want to thank the whole community for their efforts and content provided, because without these it would not be possible to create this installer.
       
      I would appreciate comments and suggestions!!

      Introduction
      This guide should work for all HP Pavilion 15 Broadwell(5th gen) laptops. I used AB205TX. This is my first guide so please use comment section if I missed something.
      I have used Andres Zero Cross' guide and made changes to make it work for us.
       
      My Specifications
      Processor: i5 5200u
      Graphics: HD5500 and GT940m
      Display: 15.6" 1920x1080
      Ram: 8Gb DDR3L
      Dual Booted with Windows 10
       
      What’s not working:
      1. Built-in WiFi (Can't! Obviously, use an external adapter)
      2. GT 940m (MacOSX doesn’t support Nvidia optimus.)
      Prerequisites:
      1.  A Mac/Hackintosh/VM for making the install usb.
      2.  A pendrive 8GB or more.
      3.  Clover Configurator installed on machine you will use for making the install usb.
       
      Getting the Bios ready:
      1. Disable virtualisation.
      2. Disable Secure Boot.
      3. Enable Legacy Mode.
       
      Use clover r3330. Nvram problems have been reported in some of the latest versions. I recommend version r3330 because it worked just fine for me.
       
      Making Install USB:
      RehabMan made a very detailed guide (mentioned below) on how to install clover on usb. While following his(did I just assume his gender? ) guide keep the following things in mind:
      The guide: https://www.tonymacx...-clover.148093/
      1.Follow the UEFI way and 2 partition method (not necessary but    recommended) 
      2.When installing clover on "Clover Efi"partition use the following configuration
      - Install for UEFI booting Only
      - Install Clover in the ESP 
      - For Drivers64UEFI (DataHubDxe-64, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64, PartitonDxe-64)
      then click Install.
      Open Config.plist at your EFI Partition of USB Installer (EFI/Clover/) with Clover Configurator and match these


      use nv_disable only if you have a nvidia card with Intel HD using optimus technology.




      Note: In the below snap my MLB is not there. You will have one already filled, let it be and don't delete it.


       
      -Go to Clover EFI > EFI > Clover > Kexts > other > and paste FakeSMC.kext and VoodooPS2controller.kext in attachments. Delete rest of the kexts in the folder.
      Now, just boot from your USB and install.

      Installing Clover on HDD:
      1.Install Clover on your hard disk and check
      - Install RC scripts on target volume
      - Install all RC Scripts on all other bootable volume
      - Optional RC Scripts
      2.Mount EFI partition of USB Installer copy the Clover folder to EFI partition of your hard disk, thus replacing the Clover folder of your hard disk.
       
      I have attached my Post-Install Clover files in case you have hp pavilion 15 ab205tx or you need to see my config.plist
       
      My dsdt and ssdts should work for you if you have the same machine. Just copy the clover folder to your efi partition and update your bios to F.82 Rev.A from HP website. If you are using my clover folder as it is you probably don't need to apply any of these patches below as they are already enabled in my config.plist.
      Fixing Graphics:
      Open config.plist at your EFI/CLOVER/ on your hard drive with Clover Configurator and write these patches in "kextToPatch" at "Kernel and Kext Patches"
      - Name=AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer, Find=4139C4763E, Replace=4139C4EB3E, Comment=“Unlocking framebuffer"
      - Name=AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer, Find=39CF763C, Replace=39CF773C (Add this with the one above only If the above patch doesn't work alone)
      To activate HDMI Audio:
      - Name=AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer, Find=02000001050B00000400000705000002040B00000400000705, Replace=02000001050B00000800000705000002040B00000400000705, Comment=“HDMI audio Fix"
      Now go to Graphics Section and in “ig-platforms-id" type 0x16260006
      In the Boot you can uncheck verbose and kext-dev-mode=1
      Open EFI partition on your HDD go to EFI > Clover > kexts > other > and delete all the kexts in it and replace them by ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext and FakeSMC.kext
       
       
      Fixing Audio
      For audio : https://redd.it/4e23w6 for ab205tx it is ALC290. I used Layout ID: 3
      Reboot, now you have QE/CI for Intel HD 5500, Audio and Touchpad with gestures working.  
       
      Fixing Performance:
      1. Open up the config.plist of your HDD and choose a suitable SMBIOS. Generally its the one with similar processor. I used Macbook Pro(12,1). 
      Follow this guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-how-to-configure-your-systems-smbios-correctly.198155/
      2. You will need to enable Native power management to get the most performance out of your machine.
      Follow this Guide: https://www.tonymacx...laptops.175801/
       
      Fixing Battery:
      1. After you have enabled Native Power Management you can disable Nvidia card for OSX to get more battery backup as the card draws power even though it is not supported on os x.
      Follow this guide: https://www.tonymacx...laptops.163772/
      Note: after disabling Nvidia you can boot without nv_disable=1 and remember to drop oem ssdt after patching your own.
      2. To get a working battery status follow this guide: https://www.tonymacx...-status.116102/
       
      Hotkeys:
      Volume and music hotkeys should work out of the box for us. Brightness hotkeys however don't. You need to do some patching to get them working like volume keys but, that's too much work for something such small. To make them work just go to syetem prefs>keyboard>shortcut and change brightness shortcuts to fn+f2 and fn+f3   depending on your machine.Now you have brightness keys working just press fn and then the keys to change brightness.
       
      Fixing Internet/AppStore/iMessage/Facetime:
      I use External USB adapter to connect to Wifi.
      Note: Use latest wifi driver for the USB adapter(the cd included with the adapter often has outdated drivers). Old drivers caused kernel panics for me. If USB wifi adapters are costly in your country or ones from good brands aren't available you can use Leoxsys usb wifi adapters which were the only ones that worked for me among all the cheap Chinese products I could find.
       
      You might notice that you are unable to sign into you Apple Id in AppStore and iMessage. This is because Apple collects some data while you sign in which we provide using our SMBIOS but that's not enough. We need ethernet set en0 and most importantly it should be shown as builtin, which is not possible for us as our ethernet/Wifi cards aren't supported. RehabMan came up with an excellent way to solve the problem. He faked ethernet device that shows up as onboard ethernet, this is possible by adding a device in DSDT.

      Sync time between windows and mac:
      If you are dual booting like me, you may find that windows or osx shows incorrect time. for that follow this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298027-guide-aio-guides-for-hackintosh/?do=findComment&comment=2020591
