    Hi Tony




    i have been looking for a SITE just like this one for at least a month!!

    thank you for being here lol

    ok i have been tryign to install

    on an hp dv7-3085dx with limited success

    specs are http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/docu ... 97&lang=en

    its a p55 board or so i think anyway or maybe its pm55

    i can only get it to boot with cpus=1 busratio=20 and that blows since it only sees one out of eight cpus

    Hey osx68er-

    I'm wondering if your laptop can use the vanilla kernel- I haven't seen a lot of people using that system yet, as it's pretty new. It could be that you have 6gb of RAM- try using the maxmem=4096 boot flag at the Chameleon prompt.

    Could be that your system can't run the Qoopz kernel that's on the default CD. Did you try the beta CD 2 or 3? The 10.6.2 kernel is on that. Also, the Beta CDs don't have a DSDT on them- that could be messing things up. If that's not working, you may have to try the USB method- it's more universal- could be that your CD/DVD drive isn't picking up the Boot CD correctly, as it does with IDE drives on desktops.

    Re: Hi Tony


    i assume we are talking about and not snow leopard now right?

    ok well i have installed the Qoopz 9.8.0 kernel and had it running using the cpus=1 busratio=20 bootflags so the kernel will run

    but i have never used the beta 2 or 3 cd because ive never heard of them heh

    so what would u suggest i try now?

    i would rather use snowleopard using your method if possible but im too newb to figure it out

    Sorry- I was talking about Snow Leopard

    The Beta Boot CDs are on my blog in the Boot CD Method at the bottom of the post. You may have luck with those. Make sure your bios settings are right- you need to enable AHCI and 64bit HPET.

    Re: Hi Tony


    It's the mobile PM55 chipset, it's not quite the same as the desktop P55 chipset so that could very well cause some issues as Apple doesn't use it in any of its computers as yet.

    Laptops generally have a very limited range of BIOS options you can change and there might well be something enabled or disabled that OSX doesn't like.
    Core i7-3770K, Gigabyte Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi (not using the Wi-Fi card), Galaxy GeForce GTX 660 Ti, 8GB of Kingston HyperX Memory at 2133MHz, 60GB Corsair Force GT SSD for OS X, a bunch of other drives, a Pioneer DVD writer and a few bits that don't work in OS X...
