Install Mohave on an HP ENVY Phoenix 860-019?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if OSX can be installed on this? I have searched for information about installing OSX on it and found nothing. 

 

I just got an HP ENVY Phoenix 860-019 desktop for a very low price, $100 CDN without any hard drives or add-on graphics card. It has an I7-6700 3.4GHz processor, integrated Intel graphics 530, 16GB DDR4 memory. It has only two PCIE expansion slots, one PCIE 16 for a graphics card and a PCIE 1x. It is now running Windows 10 on a 3TB drive. I have an old Radeon HD6450 which will operate with it with the bios set to legacy boot (it won't with the bios set to secure boot).

 

Any information about installing OSX Mojave on this computer is very much appreciated.

On the CPU and iGPU front, that computer meets the basic requirements for macOS and Mojave. On the other hand, Radeon HD6450 would not be appropriate for Mojave: it's not Metal capable and therefore not compatible for Mojave.

Thanks for your reply.

 

Yes, the HD6450 is very out-of-date now and the Intel 530 integrated graphics of the i7-6700 is much better.

      Hello,
       
      Few days back I had bought HP Elite Desk 800 g1 workstation and its config. is:
       
      Intel Q87 Chipset motherboard
      Intel core i5 4570s processor
      4gb DDR3 ram
      500gb hdd
      4gb GTX 1050 TI OC LP
       
      In this machine I successfully installed macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29). But I'm getting an error in verbose mode like some contagious file. Also I'm getting an error of shutdown. I have attached the screenshot of the same. I have also recorded the video and its url is : 
      You may see it at 0:40 seconds. Later on when whole process get completed then I get an error of shut down "You shut down  your computer because of a problem." Again and again I'm getting this error on every restart. If I'm somewhere wrong for any kext or any other thing for that, here is my EFI folder (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1k-MSKSHXK9TL3WOBPZj6O789jBau7kWx). Also I have attached my config.plist file. Audio is working, but didn't recognised the device. About this Mac is also showing details properly.
       
      Please help me out it would be grateful and appreciated
       
      Thanks

      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
       
      Not working
      SD Card reader
      Finger Print device
       
      Working
      Video - screen looks better in OS X then it does in Windows 10
      Display port
      VGA port
      WiFi and BlueTooth working OOO using the below hack
      Battery status with Rehabman's DSDT patch
      Brightness controls
      Sounds - using VoodooHDA
      * Microphone - cannot turn it off or mute
      Keyboard backlight - controlled though BIOS anyways
      touchpad - using VoodooPS2Controller
      USB3 - this laptop has two on board only and I haven't test them using the docking station
      USB3.1 C
      Ethernet - using IntelMausiEthernet
      Sleep - kind of, closing the lid doesn't go to sleep but goes to sleep over time.
      Web Cam, works but I covered it up.

      OK, it's been a while since I posted something here. The new Catalina was out last month, the current version is 10.15.1. I decided to install on my HP Envy 13" Kaby Lake. This one should work for all Kaby Lake laptops out there and also with MOJAVE OS too. So read carefully and watch the videos.
      1. You can't install Catalina on MBR unless you patch it, but it too complicated for me and I like to try the APFS system now instead of HFS. So, if you create the external USB drive using Boot Disk Utility, it won't install.
      2. Replace original WIFI-Bluetooth COMBO with DW1560 or better.
      3. Thanks to Lilu and people on Hackintosh world, things are much easier to install than before: Clover boot loader 5070, Lilu 1.3.9, Whatevergreen 1.3.4, AppleAlc 1.4.3, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, Bluetooth Patchram3 (I found BrcmPatchRAM3.kext + BrcmFirmwareData.kext + BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext), Hackintool is a must, VoodooPS2Controller.kext for trackpad, USBinjectAll , ACPIBatteryManager from rehabman, FakeSMC.kext.
      4. Use a 1GB USB flash drive, use Boot Disk Utility to create an EFI folder, then copy it to the EFI folder of the External USB SSD hard drive.
      I'll post more in details, but with these, you can boot Catalina without any problems.
       
      Cheers,
      Louis

      Hi, I want to install MacOS Catalina on my laptop.
      I was installed MacOS Mojave previously but i had a lot of problem, for example my wifi's card (Dell DW1820A) had a problem: My pc sometimes doesn't boot up or pc after some minutes crashed or slowed. 
      Now i want to try again to install macOS.
       
      this is my spec: 
      HP 15-AY034NL 
      CPU: i7 6500U  with HD520
      SSD: 500GB SSD Samsung
      Wifi & Bluetooth: Dell DW1820A (Bluetooth: BCM2045A0) (Wifi: BCM94350ZAE)
      USB 3.0 
      Ethernet: Realtek 8100
       
      Attached in this thread, my old clover configuration created by me (CLOVER OLD) and clover with Wifi driver (CLOVER) created by Hervè (I had asked help at insanelymac's community)
       
      P.S SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH.
      Thanks in advance
