HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 Hackinstosh Help !!!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello there 


I went to work the other day and noticed this HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 was in the trash bin outside my bosses house

so i asked my boss why he was trowing it away and said he just upgraded to a Asus Laptop and he no longer needed it , so I asked if i could take it home with me (since i like to thinker with things) (he said sure )

sure enough after getting home , I realized this laptop still has life left in it , I was able to boot up and install windows 10 and runs great.

cosmetically a 9/10 for a old laptop

I repasted the cpu and gpu , dusted the inside cooler fan , chassis and works good but I'm not feeling windows 10 for this machine 

I would like to know if someone could help me and point me in the right direction to get high sierra running.


I made a high sierra bootable usb stick (uefi ) tried it  ....not working .... made a legacy usb ...not booting and I heard the process is different from what it usually is on a desktop. 



any help is appreciated , I'll leave the specs below

Good laptop for hakintosh. Mac OS 10.13 maximum.
At the expense of UEFI - look carefully in the BIOS / or with the help of a BIOS modification it can be turned on if desired.
And with the setting here you need to read the forum, in a brief way not to explain. but you ask how questions appear.

thanks for the reply , i was able to make a bootable usb folloing rehabman's guide but once i get the latop to finally boot clover to install and try to start the installation it stalls or reboots , i tried verbose mode and same thing is just keeps giving me all these code and so i tried different settings on my plist and nothing still throws me in that loop , sometimes i get the apple logo and the bar to pop but the bar never fills .    


im using the legacy method from rehabman btw since my latop doesn't have uefi mode for some reason


do you have any clue as to why this is happening ?
