[GUIDE] HP Pavilion m6-1045dx (Mountain Lion)

Recommended Posts

Oh you know what it probably is, our cards are slightly different I bet. Load up Ubuntu, open Terminal, type in LSPCI and copy the printout and paste it here, do the same with the readout of LSUSB.

 

I'm guessing the hardware IDs are slightly different, there are a few "versions" of this card, in general there are multiple versions of cards, but the kexts I used and uploaded were actually edited for my card's IDs. You might try the original set of kexts for WiFi, I believe it's on OSX86.net, Google a little bit it should be easy to find, but do that and try that out before going through all the Ubuntu stuff... Also, what about Bluetooth? Does that work in the Hackintosh? Keep in mind even though WiFi and Bluetooth are on the same AR5B195 card, WiFi operates on the PCI bus while Bluetooth uses the USB bus, at least on our laptop and probably all the similar HP laptops of 2012/2013 (so Bluetooth doesn't work after a sleep resume with the Hackintosh setup but WiFi does). I know I/we (eep357 has been helping a lot) had to edit the Bluetooth kexts, I think because of the USB bus thing, because the norm is for WiFi and Bluetooth to both run off of PCI, or at least that's how I understand it.

I assume you're probably pulling the vendor and hardware ids with that command. I have a Dell model, Dell 1702 I think.

there was a revision but I didn't copy that down. Give me a second and I'll post what Ubuntu states.

Yep. We'll resume this tomorrow, but you don't have an HP m6-1045dx? You're using a Dell... I'm guessing with the same specs, Ivy Bridge i5 3210M, HD4000, HM77 chipset?

M6-1045DX, bought a Dell 1702 because it's a AR5B195. Didn't realize that would be a big issue.

 

I downloaded a kext from osx86 for the AR5B195, added my 168c and 2b and restarted. Wifi works now! Thanks a lot for the help and suggestions. Time to start working on the other bugs.

My battery monitor isn't working. I tried a couple kext's from google/osx86 and now I'm getting a KP stating I'm missing 2 files. I formatted my myHack flash drive for data transfers and don't have a mac nearby to create a new one. Is there any other repair methods? I have a .iso of ML, official disc of Snow Leopard, i_boot for 10.6 and i_boot for 10.8.

I had to remake the myHack USB a few times... I have a few laptop hard drives and a few flash drives, so at one time I had a secondary hard drive with Windows and Mac OS X in a VM on it and two myHack USB drives. Without a Mac to use, you need a VM of OS X, and that can be done with Ubuntu or Windows.

 

I've never had any luck with disks, I have something like 10 different ones for Hackintoshing, bootloader disks, iAtkos disks, pure OS X disks... It's a mess.

Yeah, finally after 3 or 4 myHack flash drives and a couple weird touchpad issues, I finally got Mac OS back on it. Time to do the kexts again. Thanks again btw for the pack.

anyone have a minor link for the gatsby pack?

 

 

I second this. Haven't been in the Hackintosh game for a while, just came back to check in... The files should still be up, but it seems Google screwed up the goo.gl link so it doesn't know where to redirect to.... Nor do I, I think it's in a DropBox account I forgot I had, to be honest.

 

If anyone has it, I'd be much obliged if you sent it to me so I can update the link... Or if you want to host it, that's cool too.

So I finally found the Gatsby Kext Pack:

And the Gatsby Everything Else Pack:

 

http://goo.gl/ZqvFHi

 

 

They may be older versions, but it's better than nothing, right?

I am happy to report that, I have Installed Mavericks on my 1045dx following your guide and the Kext Packs you provided. I will try installing Yosemite :)

      Unsupported Wifi
      Make sure you are using DW1560 or 1820a for wifi or else there is a risk of KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other Styling

Download the latest Catalina installer from within the Patcher App, and select to download a new copy and install to your USB device Download the clover configurator application and mount the EFI of the USB partition, then copy the contents of the Files linked above to A new EFI Folder (that you create) within the EFI partition. ** This is because the App Store installers will often not download a full installer, just an truncated version that downloads the installer files from the interent while installing. Thus, they're not bootable from a USB as they're not complete. That is why you should use this method to make sure the installer is usable for bootable media.

      Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. Highly recommend using DW1560 wifi card, killer wifi isn't supported. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I take no credit for. I am only responsible for minor changes in files and plists, as well as placement and instructions throughout the guide (as well as the work used from previous projects). Many files and ideas are sourced from @maz-1, @syscl, and my previous guides Granted, many files are similar or the same but there is significantly less of them and/or they are predeployed into spots where they will work just as well, even if not as efficient on bootup. Esentially, this guide is designed to provide a perfectly working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without optimization (because often they can break things). Most patches on the main plist use patches implemented by him as well. ****This guide does work excellently however and will provide you with a near perfect setup for Catalina for your XPS 9350, and is currently my daily driver as I struggled using the referenced users files as well.
      Styling
      This guide is designed to be literally as thorough as possible to appeal to those who really don't understand many of the things in @maz-1's guide or some of the other users as they assume you would already understand this information. It does not cover complex topics like undervolting etc etc Notes
      Never tested USB C except for charging, works great no issues with sleep, wakeup. power management is defaulted as I found with @maz-1 it had issues when on battery switching from AC USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue) Haven't implemented a Bluetooth solution into this yet, as I don't really use it -- will be added ASAP (I believe KILLER WIFI will NOT work, must use one of the supported chipsets (DW1560 is excellent) BIOS Setup
      Set all SATA operation as AHCI Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States Enable UEFI Booting Recommended: Clean Install (Preinstall steps)
      Format a USB (16GB) as Journaled and then proceed to download the latest Catalina Installer Patcher Application Download the latest Catalina installer from within the Patcher App, and select to download a new copy and install to your USB device Download the clover configurator application and mount the EFI of the USB partition, then copy the contents of the Files linked above to the EFI Folder within the EFI partition. ** This is because the App Store installers will often not download a full installer, just an truncated version that downloads the installer files from the interent while installing. Thus, they're not bootable from a USB as they're not complete. That is why you should use this method to make sure the installer is usable for bootable media.
      Install Steps
      Simply use F12 to boot from the USB device, and select the USB Device and then boot from the Install mac OS partition. I have defaulted the installer to boot into verbose mode so I can easily see the errors you guys are seeing if you encounter them. If everything goes well, you can disable these from the boot arguments selection of Clover Configurator Boot into the USB Device, and follow the steps to format your SSD from the installer to install Mac OS Catalina. NOTE THE TRACKPAD WILL NOT FUNCTION AT THIS POINT, BUT THE TOUCHSCREEN WILL. This is caused by the way the installer handles Kext loading but because the touchscreen is being loaded via usb and the keyboard in a different method (which I can explain in detail if you'd like, the install will be possible. Do not be alarmed if the installer takes a long time to boot into, this is expected Once you have done this step, use F12 to select the USB and boot into the installer from the SSD in the options menu. (you cannot boot natively yet as the EFI isn't copied into the SSD yet. Setup computer as normal, touchpad, brightness, etc, should all be functioning at this point. Same with wifi. Then, you should using Clover configurator copy the contents of the USB EFI into the EFI folder of your SSD EFI partition (in the folder) Now we will add this as a native boot option. Setup computer as normal, touchpad, brightness, etc, should all be functioning at this point. Same with wifi. Then, you should using Clover configurator copy the contents of the USB EFI into the EFI folder of your SSD EFI partition (in the folder) Now will we add this as a boot entry so you can always boot from this natively without the USB. Boot Entry Setup
      Boot into the BIOS of the computer, then navigate to the Boot setup (or entries (not sure what it is called exactly, but it will be a list of the options your computer selects to boot) Click add new, and make sure the USB isn't plugged in. Select the only option that is avaiable, and in FS0 navigate to Boot/BOOTx64. Add this as an entry, then select this as whatever priority you would like. Credits

      Using Clover Configuator generate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of documentation, just don't open these apps until you've done this properly.
