[Help] HP Pavilion dv6-6b51ea - OS X ML

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,


Currently I'm using Windows 8, and I would like to install OS X Mountain Lion.

First of all, I don't support piracy, henceforth I intend to buy OS X Mountain Lion, but only if you could tell me is it going to work on my laptop.

I hope you understand my position here, not anyone wants to waste $20 USD.


If you can convince me that it'll work, I will buy OS X ML.


To see if I can install ML, I downloaded from torrents untouched copy, iATKOS_ML2 copy, and one for VMware.

I used my 8 GB Kingston USB, and I did everything, but I couldn't make it work.


When I used untouched copy of ML, it booted, but talled me to restart my pc. So I tried with various boot flags, but nothing worked.

Then, I tried with iATKOS_ML2 but then again, it didn't work.


When I used verbose mode, the far as I've gotten is to the "Still waiting for the root device" - again, various boot flags, but no solution whatsoever.


I would really appreciate any help, and once again, I don't support piracy. This was only to make sure if I can really install OS X ML.



That's about it, I hope you can see my Laptop CFG, but just in case, here's my Laptop CFG:


Product: HP Pavilion dv6-6b51ea
OS: Windows 8 Enterprise
CPU: Intel Core i5-2430M @ 2.4 GHz // Sandy Bridge
VGA: AMD Radeon HD 6490 @ 1 GB // Intel HD Graphics 3000 --- Switchable Graphics


Thank you for reading this thread, I hope you'll help me with my issue.


Kind regards, const.

Hi guys,


iFire, thanks for helping but I din't have to do all of that.

HP BIOS is kinda weird, no advance options whatsoever.


I'm installing iATKOS_ML2 right now! How?

I used: "-v -x cpus=1"


I'll post my progress when I'm done.



Installed, but when I was booting from my hard drive, my screen froze (apple logo).

So, I installed Windows 8 again.

Any tutorial I should check?
