Graphics and WiFi cards on laptop

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I have an Hp pavilion dv6, and i want to make my nVidia GeForce GT 630m 2G graphics card work on my mavericks hackintosh, because i can do more than what i can do with the integrated intel graphics 3000.

 

And i want to buy a new wifi card, but i want to get it compatible with yosemite, since later this year, yosemite will come out. Is there any card for a laptop that is compatible with yosemite for hackintosh, that also works for Windows, and is inexpensive ?

 

Thank you.

 

Processor : Intel Core i7 2670QM Sandy Bridge

Motherboard Model : 181B

BIOS : Insyde (version F.09)

Memory : 8GB RAM

GPU : Intel HD Graphics 3000, and nVidia GEFORE GT 630M 2GB

The GT630m card does not work, only HD 3000.


A pain for laptop users is that most built-in wireless cards aren’t supported. You can always find and replace your unsupported one.
 
Here is the list of supported and unsupported card ( Yellow means work with WifiInjector kext, Green means work OOB, red means unsupported, HMB cards are cards also have Bluetooth )
Or you can use a wifi dongle which is supported by OS X, but it also has downsides like battery draining, weak signal or causing sleep issues.

I think i'll stick with Ethernet until Yosemite is released, so i won't buy a wifi card now and is incompatible with Yosemite.

 

Is it worth it changing my graphics card ? Or i won't see a difference ? ( i might use imovie later )

      After a long time of cooking this computer up with a lot of stuff, I'm finally releasing my guide for this P50 with OpenCore.

      Catalina update 10.15.4 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand and clover 5107
      Catalina update 10.15.3 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand.
      Catalina update 10.15.2 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand.
      Catalina update 10.15.1 without issue although you may have to make sure clover boots from the right partition.
      HP 840 G2/G3, working with OS X 10.15 Catalina, for this to work you will need the SSDT-ECUSBX.aml and place that  EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched. 
      Make sure you remove Remove all patches about renaming acpi of EC or H_EC, revert all ACPI renaming in ACPI DSDT.
       
      My method to install OS X on the SSD from a working real Mac via SSD to USB converter. I then install Clover and add my kexts and set the config.plist
