Snow leopard on HP Dv7 help plz!

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an HP Pavilion dv7-6b57nr amd quad core and have tired several distro's & boot disk to get to the install screen on this laptop but nothing is going through at all. I've put snow leopard on many computers but I can't figure this one out, any help on this would be great.

I'm trying to put it on a second hdd and when I install I put in only one hdd in the primary slot and run the cd


My kernel flags are cpus=1 busratio=17 arch=i386 -v -f


I tried THIS out and it wont boot to the install screen just kernel panics and I have to shut down.


Thanks in advanced


Here is my kernel panic I get almost every time

      HI, i've installed high sierra a while ago and never really used it that much but i got bored of w10 so i've decided to use it as my daily driver for a while and i noticed that usb 3.0 ports don't work with usb 3 devices and only with usb 2.0 devices(capped at the 480mb/s limit of usb 2.0), is there a way to get past that? i couldn't find it in this forum, i don't need the speed that much for right now(even tho i might since i shoot in raw and usb 2.0 is slow for file transfer of big photos or videos i take on holidays or on days off)  but i'd like to at least be able to use the usb 3.0s with my usb 3 devices and hub. 
      Hope that i write this post correctly, english is not my main language.
      ps  i don't need because i'm on lan but does it exist a driver/kext for intel wifi/bluetooth combo integrated in my z87 mpower(centrino 2200) ? bluetooth works already.

      Hi there.
      Soo i was trying install mac at 4 days ago and finnaly today i can. I installed the Leopard and all works fin except the keyboard and ps2 mouse. And then i try a lot to put a .kext with transmac on windows xp cause im dual booting it.When i try to use Transmac i have the error"This drive is read only".
      Who i fix this?! This is my first question!
      The second i think is more hard. I have a Amilo Pro V3505 with 2gb ram and Intel GMA 945, a Intel Pentium T2130 idk the motherboard i aleardy try find the name but i couldnt with a Atheros ar5007eg wirless adapter.
      So i instal iAtkos S3 v2 but when i was booting(after installing) it he boots and starts make the sound of the animation video of snow leopard but THE SCREEN WAS GREY WITHOUT THE APPLE LOGO AND WITHOUT THE MOUSE JUST A GREY SCREEM.
      Well i try much flags but when i try GraphicsEnabler=No while the booting appears i recuve the message "you need to restart the computer" and i restart and gives again the same error.
      I think is some missing kext graphical but i cant add/remove kexts cause transmac give error!
      Thanks in advanced!

      hi guys,
      I have successfully installed os X 10.10.5 on my laptop ThinkPad E431 with Clover boot. It worked fine before, today I tried to hide unnecessary boot volumes (like, winApp, winData etc.) in Clover/config.plst. However, after I had done that, the useless boot options were gone indeed, and the os X can't be boot too.
      At first it stuck at "IOAPIC" (as show on image), then after a while, it goes to "System uptime in nanoseconds ..." and died.
      Can anyone give some suggestions please? thank you so much for help.

      I am doing it under Sierra via VM and system refuses to do this (install to apps), also there is no ption to "buy" El Capitan from store.
      If someone give me advice how to make it run I will be very glad.
