[Information] How to install HP Z640

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I just recently bought a HP Workstation Z640 featuring:

 

CPU: Dual XEON E5-2609 v3

Chipset: Intel C612 Chipset

GPU: NVidia GTX 980

Audio: Realtek ALC221

Ram: 16GB
Lan: Intel I-218 Gbit LAN

PCIe: HP Z Turbo Drive 256GB SSD

 

HP Z640 specs: http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c04400040.pdf

 

And I wanted to try if it was possible to install OSX on this little buddy.
The fact is that I'm a total newbie with Hackintosh and I don't know where to look for (fore compatibility), what to look for and how to proceed.

Could you please help me?

Thanks in advance,   :)

      Hola gente, como va? Yo volviendo al foro después de mucho tiempo.
      Le cuento que mi primer experiencia en osx86 fue con mi querida y difunta ya asus k50af.
      Imaginen instalar el retail de snow leopard en ese bicho con un amd Athlony un video dedicado ati.
      Luego de mucho intentar, anda x el foro con mi otro usuario nestornillado,  me di por vencido.
      No sin antes llegar a lograr que arranque el sistema con el mod cd, pero bueno era muy poco funcional.
      Fui y consegui usada una Thinkpad t400 Intel Core 2 Duo P8600.
      Intel 4500MHD.
      Para mi sorpresa todo fue muy bien de una. arranco perfecto. todo funcionaba.
      Menos el wifi pero le mande el cable de red y disfrute mucho de ella.
      A tal punto que logre instalar el garage band y me senti un gran HACKER.
      Todos muy lindos recuerdos hasta que la bios se re fundió y me quede en la pampa y la via otra vez.
      Hoy vuelvo al foro para empezar de cero con dos nuevas maquinas.
      Tengo una HP1000 que tiene un I3 de tercera generacion y una placa de video intel hd3000.
      Ademas, la cereza del postre, una MSI GV62 7RD que tiene un I7 7700HQ y una placa de video dedicada GTX 1050.
      Desde ya les voy agradecer cualquier orientación al respecto ya que pensaba instalar snow leopard pero por lo que vi esta bastante caduco el sistema. y Mas aun el mod cd.
      Que me recomiendan? voy por el High Sierra con el metodo de instalacion Clover Efi?
      LA verdad es que mucho no entiendo y el metodo de mod cd era facilisimo, pero le voy a poner mucho ímpetu si me ayudan.
      Aparte estoy interesado en instalar paralelo el windows 10 que la lo tengo legal en las maquinas de fabrica y me es¿ncantaria tambien tener una distribución linux, que de hecho estoy pensando en Darwin Os aunque soy mas de ubuntu ultimate.
      Desde ya agradezco su colaboraion y existencia me encanta el foro y ojala pueda aprender mucho mas con ustedes.
      Los saludo a todos muy atte,

      I have an HP Elitebook 8460P running OSx 10.13.4 High Sierra
       
      I have an odd issue i believe is related to DSDT patch for ACPI Power battery.
      My battery icon works the battery level goes up/down and battery goes black when charging/white when not.
       
      BUT... Always has a lightning bolt in it and says "Power Source: Power Adapter" no matter if its connected or not.
       
       
      How can i get it to recognize my adapter is unplugged?

      Hi guys, I have a weird problem using an Xeon E5450(775 modded) with nvidia card(8600gt & Quadro 580 FX same problem).
      First I want to say that in windows I don't have any problem, so it's not something about compatibility.
      When I try to boot in macOS with this cpu and nvidia video card I get only a glitch displayed(see attachments), the computer isn't froze, I can access it with ssh or file sharing, only no image.
      If I boot with nv_disable=1 flag I get image(no acceleration of course) and everything's fine.
      I tried the cpu on 2 different boards and 2 different nvidia cards and the problem is the same.
      With amd video card I don't have this problem.
       
      What I tried and failed:
      Deleting injection from dsdt and injecting or not injecting with clover.
      Using nvidia web drivers.
      Changing CPU settings from bios, like virtualisation, speedstep etc.
      Different macos versions(10.11, 10.12, 10.13)
       
      The hack I want to use with this CPU is the Desktop from signature, I can provide dsdt or entire efi if it's needed but I don't think it matters since I have the same problem with 2 different boards and 2 different nvidia cards.
