{GUIDE} 10.7.2 Running (Almost Perfectly) on a HP tc4400

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay so i have Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 Running on a Hewlett-Packard tc4400 Tablet PC


Here are the Specs of my tc4400


Intel Duo T5600 @ 1.83 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Detailed Specs


2GB Corsair 667 MHz PC2-5300


250GB 7200 RPM Western Digital SATA Hard Drive


Intel GMA 945M with 224MB RAM


Broadcom 4311 WiFi Card


Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit PCI Express Ethernet


HP Integrated Module with Bluetooth 2.0 Wireless Technology 2.0


ADI SoundMAX HD Audio


Authentec Finger Print Reader


Wacom Active Digitizer




Heres what you need:


1. iAtkos L2 DVD or USB Installer ( you know where to get it ) if you download it and your using windows you will need to convert the .dmg file to a iso to burn it ( Hint use UltraISO ). Burn it with Dvd Decrypter at the slowest speed possible.


2. A External USB Keyboard and mouse




1. Plug in your external DVD Drive or USB Drive.

2. Turn on the tc4400

3. When you first see the BIOS Screen with the HP logo press f9

4. A Blue window will pop up asking you to select the boot device select your USB DVD Drive Or USB Hard Drive (Flash Drive)

5. You Will then get the boot screen for the installer. press f8 and the type -v and press enter this will boot the installer in text mode so you can see any errors if they happen to occur.

6. Once you get to the Language welcome screen you may have to plug in a external keyboard and mouse.

7. Once you to the iAtkos welcome screen go to disk utility and select your Hard Drive and Format it as Mac OS X Extended Journal.

8. Once you have formatted your hard drive press continue until you get to the menu that asks for the hard drive you want to instal lion onto. Select your hard drive and then in the lower left hand corner select customize.

9. Look at the attached picture and select everything that is checked in blue and has a red arrow beside it. NOTE!! Do not select the RTC only select the RTC 32-bit !!! We will take care of the Audio Later.

10. After your done selecting everything press install and go get a cup of coffee.

11. After the install is done and your computer is rebooting you can remove your dvd or usb drive you no longer need it.

12. Now don't touch anything just let your tc4400 boot and do its thing.

13. When you get to the setup screen you shouldn't have to use your external keyboard and mouse.

14 Set up your New "Mac"

15. When you get to the desktop. make sure you download the AppleAzaliaFixAD1981 file after you have done that go ahead and install it and reboot. everything should be working properly.

      Ciao a tutti,
      sono felicemente riuscito a installare Lion sul mio Optiplex 330.
      Funziona tutto tranne la scheda audio interna ma non importa perché vorrei installare una USB esterna: una Yamaha AG03.
      Dalle istruzioni questa dovrebbe essere installata su Lion senza driver e riconosciuta subito (http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/global/en/products/mixers/ag/manual/mac/index_en.jsp).
      Su un altro hackintosh sempre con Lion viene riconoscita perfettamente.
      Il sistema la vede, nel System Report, correttamente collegata all'USB ma da Audio Midi Setup mi dice "NO DEVICES FOUND".
      Temo che mi manchi qualche parte software per far riconoscere la scheda esterna.
      Ho installato i VoodooHDA ma mi hanno mandato in crash il sistema quindi li ho rimossi.
      Avete consigli?
      Grazie mille

      Hello everyone,
      I'm new to this forum, I'm really searching for some help with my "project" and hope some of you can help me out with this one!
      It's all coming down to a not starting "Finder"
      The full story,
      I bought a Mac Pro 1.1 (2006) a few day's ago. All stock, dual Intel Xeon 3Ghz, 5GB Ram and the stock video card (256MB). (Lion freshley installed)
      I wanted to upgrade to OSX El Capitain, and after a lot of research and a lot... yes a lot of trouble in making it all work I finally got it. I've thrown in a Geforce GTX 760 2GB Jetstream... couldn't wait to get cables for powering it, so I frankensteind it all with a second PSU. Installed Lion on a Samsung 850 EVO, and then followd a tutorial on how to install el capitain using Piker's boot. 
      After 12 hours non stop messin around it worked, only after some time the mac froze and rebooted. I noticed that maby Google Chrome caused this to happen, and when using Safari it would work without any problem. I even can play 4K flawless.
      But still after some time it would crash, I monitored the CPU and Ram Usage, but there wasn't anything crazy happening at those things.
      .. didn't really got the time to instal other apps. Then I found out Finder wasn't responding. It kept on crashing. I tried a lot of things... deleting the plist files, resetting PRAM, VRAM, Savebooting, deleting cache, Disk repair (Disk Aid)... nothing worked.
      Is this maby a problem with the bootloader (Pike)?
      I hope someone can help me out!
      Thanks in advance,
      Greetings from Holland

      I'm trying to install Mac OS X Lion onto a kinda old PC, the specs are:
      AMD Athlon X2 4450e NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE 3GB RAM I've successfully installed Snow Leopard on it, and then I tried OS X Lion which gives me "[ PCI configuration begin ]" and then it will give me "console 1024 x 768 @0xe0000000" if I add pci=off, I've tried Yosemite and Mavericks (and they give me the same results) but I'm trying to stay away from them as they probably don't support my graphics card, and weirdly, I've tried Mountain Lion which boots into the installer no problem but it doesn't show my hard drive, so i tried to install it onto a flash drive (which takes ages!) but then at the last moment it tells me that it was unsuccessful, so I try to boot into Mountain Lion and I get the same errors (except I haven't tried pci=off, but I really don't want to try again unless it's really needed.)
      Is there anything I can do or am I just stuck with Snow Leopard?

      I recently received an HP Pavilion A6400f with the ASUS IPIBL-LB mobo.  My brother keeps telling me to get a Mac so I thought I'd try to make a hackintosh using OSx Lion since both are from the same era. So far, all I've found are tutorials that all say "first get such and such from a previous install of OSx". If I had a previous install or access to a Mac I wouldn't need to try making a hackintosh. So, any suggestions or guidance? Hopefully, once I get OSx on, I'll be able to install Linux Mint and multiboot.
