HP Pavilion dv7 3020ed - Hackintosh?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I've read that someone managed to install OS X Snow Leopard on an HP Pavilion dv7 3020ed and since my dad has this exact same notebook, I thought it'd be nice for him to get OS X running on his notebook.


Now, I do have an iMac but I'm not familiar with installing OS X on non-supported devices. I've tried it once (it failed), but I'm a bit unfamiliar with this whole kext-thing.


However, since I know that it is possible to get OS X up and running on this notebook, I'd appreciate any help from you guys!


HP Pavilion dv7 3020ed

- AMD Athlon II dual-core processor (M300) @ 2 GHz


- 320 GB SATA-HDD @ 7200 RPM

- ATI Radeon HD 4530 w/ 512 MB VRAM

      Hi guys, i'm trying to help a friend of mine trying to install osx(possibly high sierra) on his pc with the following specs: 
      Amd fx8350 
      Asrock 990fx extreme 3
      8gb of fury Kingston ddr3 ram(2x4)
      Radeon hd 7950
      128gb ssd( crucial m550)
      A couple of hdds I don't remember the brand(maybe a seagate barracuda and a dumb old disk for data)
      We tried to install it using the regular clover+high showers installer but we couldn't get it to reach the installer, then we tried osx-amd(don't know if i can talk about it there, sorry if i can't) and we still couldn't get to the installer.
      Is there a guide i can use to install osx in that machin, i tried to search in the forum but i couldn't find it.

      Eu instalei o Hackintosh, porem uso um Cougar 200k, meu teclado, e a tecla shift, windows e alt não funcionam, não executam função nenhuma, já o Ctrl funciona como Shift, gostaria de saber como eu posso atribuir funções a essas teclas que não fazem nada e mudar a função do Ctrl.
