HP 8560W OS X 10.8.2

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



I want to install OS X on an HP 8560w. I am aware there is a guide for that PC but it is for OS X 10.7. I installed 10.8, updated to 1.8.2... had some issues booting back into windows at first but i worked it out. The mousepad, keyboard, audio and maybe graphics weren't work properly. So i went and download the files for 10.7 guide.... i used kext utility and draged and dropped all the kext file in the folders to the utility, i also installed chimera 2.0 and then rebooted. Now i have a blackscreen... the PC seems to boot into OS X as far as i can tell but it looks like video is messed up.


Can anyone help me? I think i'd rather start from scratch and build another key with ##### 1.7.0... the one i used was from a torrent site using 1.5... not sure if it makes any difference.



Can anyone point me in the right direction here? I assume installing all the kext file using the kext utility was a bad idea.. probably as there was some other file types in there i didn't touch.
