Need Help About HP Pavilion g6-1095st

38 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I need help installing "Mac OS X Lion" on my "HP Pavilion g6-1095st".


I used iATKOS L2 + rBoot LE (chameleon is not working?) for installing os x on my pc. Succesfully installed with "cpus=1 busratio=23".


Here is my setup configuration:

  • Bootloader
    • Chimera 1.6

    [*]Bootloader Options

    • Graphics Enabler (default)
    • Built-in Ethernet (default)
    • CPU Throttler
    • Original Apple Boot Logo


    • FakeSMC (default)
    • Disabler (default)
    • RTC
      • RTC (default)

      [*]EvOreboot (default)


    • Main Hardware
      • Sound
        • VoodooHDA
          • v2.7.3

        [*]Hardware Sensors

        • CPU


        [*]Laptop Battery


      • Wired
        • Realtek RTL8111/8168

But, It freezes on apple logo. A woman voice saying "Mac OS X have a screen reader named VoiceOver." I can use my keyboard to manage VoiceOver, so sound and keyboard works! :)


Tried many Boot options but none of them work. Here is some of them,


"Normal Boot" = Kernel Panic

"cpus=1 busratio=23" = Screen doesn't work.

"-v cpus=1 busratio=9 GraphicsEnabler=No" = "DSMOS has arrived."

"-v -s cpus=1 busratio=23" = Opens Command Line. I can use my keyboard to write something.


Seems like I have a problem with my Graphics Card. With some searching I found my pc has 2 Graphics card. One named "ATI Radeon HD 6470M" and other named "Intel HD Graphics 3000"


Intel HD Graphics 3000 natively supported by Mac.

ATI Radeon HD 6470M have some problems with OS X


I'm totally stuck now and need help!

It definitely is a graphics problem. Try booting with -v -x. The -x is safe mode and it will disable the graphics drivers. You will still see a graphical interface, but it won't have resolution control or acceleration. But it will give you a chance to finish booting and then go attack the graphics problem. You might still have to add the cpus=1 and busratio but try the combinations with -x.

Most laptops with dual graphics have some way to turn off the HD3000 so that the HD 6740M can be used.


What we don't know is which graphics system is blocking you from booting. We'll move the HD3000 drivers out of the way.


Boot -s


Type:  mount -uw /
Type:  cd /System/Library/Extensions
Type:  mkdir IntelBack
Type:  mv AppleIntelHD* IntelBack/
Type:  mv AppleIntelSNB* IntelBack/


Reboot -v -f cpus=1 busratio=23

Booted with -v -s cpus=1 busratio=23 and moved intel drivers.


Booting with "-v -f cpus=1 busratio=23" causes kernel panic while startup.


Booting with "-v cpus=1 busratio=23" causes kernel panic just before VoiceOver starts.

While opening lion for take a photo, Screen comes up. Thank you.


System Information window shows 2 Graphic cards. One of them is "Intel HD Graphics 3000 mobile (Bulit-in)" and other is "Screen (PCIe)" No QE/CI, always %100 brightness, Screen failed to sleep.

Still testing...

Thanks, but that didn't tell me anything about the wireless or ethernet. Would you be able to try the Mac version? Download it in Windows then use a flash drive or something to move it to OSX?

No wireless support is very bad for me. Also the program that you gived didn't work. I can set it in control panel but when I connect it to my other pc (it's a windows pc. I bridged wireless and wired connections for connecting internet with mac.) My Mac's ehernet light isn't on and My other pc says "Network cable is not connected". Also in System info it shows Mac uses AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext for my RTL8101E/RTL8102E ethernet controller.


Also I found 3 other problems:

I can't change my sound level. It's aways full level and can't be lowered.

While starting mac most of the time it shows me a Kernel Panic. When I restart it 4-5 times it opens properly.

Mac drains battery very quick. It ends in 1 hour 30 minutes. (4 hours on pc)

1. Wireless - You have a Broadcom BCM4313 wireless controller. I looked for a solution and all I found were other people looking for a solution. Therefore, the solution is to insert a new card. This is not uncommon.

2. Ethernet - You have a Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E ethernet controller. The solution I gave you came from Realtek. The AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext is what they provided. I presume that Realtek modified it to meet their specifications. Did you go to System Preferences -> Network and configure the ethernet port in the Mac…give it an IP address or set it to DHCP?

3. Sound - In System Preferences, you might find a control panel (at the bottom) for VoodooHDA which you installed. It has sliders you can adjust. Also, read this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=267905

4. Kernel Panic - cannot even hope to do anything about that until we know what it says. Are you able to take a picture of the kernel panic and post it?

5. Battery drain - I don't have a laptop so I don't know the solution for this. Search the forums for a solution. Google: battery drain insanelymac

1. OK, I can buy a new wireless card later. Thanks!

2. Yes I tried DHCP and Manual. Still don't work.

3. tried


but i think i broke something really hard system kernel panics every boot.

4. I added 2 picture 1st one is before vodooHDA fix, 2nd one is after VodooHDA fix.

5.I think it's about my graphics. In windows it switches to intel gpu for save battery. but in mac it still uses Ati gpu without power saving (because osx dont know howto save battery, kext is not installed )


Edit: Forget to add pictures

1. About wireless. Do you have bluetooth? If so, the bluetooth is built into the wireless card and I don't know a replacement that combines bluetooth with wireless.

2. In the 2nd picture, the driver for ethernet is registering the MAC address for ethernet. So the driver recognizes the ethernet and is trying to bring it up. There may be something else wrong somewhere.

3. You have Windows on this computer, right? If so, I will ask for some info from Windows to see if we can fix sound.

4. Try this to see if it will help you boot:


Boot -s cpus=1 busratio=23


You should come to a command prompt that says "root:"


Type:  mount -uw /
Type:  cd /System/Library/Extensions
Type:  chown -R root:wheel VoodooHDA.kext
Type:  chmod -R 755 VoodooHDA.kext


Reboot -v cpus=1 busratio=23

1. Yes the card is an Bluetooth+Wifi combo. Bluetooth works but wifi does not.

2. Yes I have Windows + OS X dual boot.

3. It works! I can open os x and adjust sound. :)

OK, two things.


1. Can you paste the contents of a file here for me? The file has one of two names. /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist -or- /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist

There may be a flag to set in there to help your ethernet.


2. I want to try an experiment to see if we can help your battery situation. But it might cause the computer to panic.



Boot -s cpus=1 busratio=23


At the root prompt


Type:  mount -uw /
Type:  cd /System/Library/Extensions
Type:  mv NullCPUPowerManagement.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext.bak


Boot -v -f cpus=1 busratio=23




NOW, if the computer panics, do the exact same thing, except change one line to:


Type:  mv NullCPUPowerManagement.kext.bak NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

2. Trying it now...


Tried it... It repeats this: "Still waiting for root device"

OK, undo it as I explained by using the other command.


After you reboot, let's try a different ethernet driver and see if that works.

- Go to /System/Library/Extensions and drag AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext to the Trash

- Give your password

- Download and run this installer: http://www.mediafire.com/?n2ciymqmdgw

- Boot -v -f cpus=1 busratio=23

"Still waiting for root device" means that when BIOS hands over booting to OSX, it can't find the hard drive it is supposed to boot. This could be because the driver for the hard drive is damaged or corrupt or cables to the hard drive were affected or something in BIOS was changed. Messing with NullCPUPowerManagement.kext should have no effect on the hard drive booting. Did you do anything else to the computer like open the compartment where the hard drive and wireless live? Or change something in BIOS. The only other thing you did was open org.chameleon.Boot.plist (or possibly com.apple.Boot.plist). Is it possible you changed something in there by accident and then saved it?


If we can't find something simple to fix, it might mean having to reinstall.
