    Default After installation, it goes directly to VISTA, no OSX or option to choose from

    Hi there,
    Though this is my first post, I've been around for quite a while and didn't want to post anything before going through as many topics as possible and solve the problem, not only here, but also on MyDigitalLife and InsanelyMac, but so far I have no luck with installing Leo on my HP Pavilion dv9700.

    Specs:

    OS: Windows Vista 64bit SP1
    Processor: Mobile Intel Core2 Duo T9300 (2,5GHz)
    Memory: 4GB
    DIMM1: Qimonda 64T256020EDL3SC2 2 GB DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) (3-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz)
    DIMM3: Qimonda 64T256020EDL3SC2 2 GB DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) (3-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz)

    BIOS: Phoenix 0.58 (16.06.2008)

    HD:
    500GB (2x SATA 250GB)
    Video: nVidia Geforce 8600M GS 512MB (17" LCD)
    Sound: Realtek ALC268 @ Intel 82801HBM ICH8M - High Definition Audio Controller

    (IDE) Controllers:

    IDE Controller Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850
    IDE Controller Ricoh Memory Stick Controller
    IDE Controller Ricoh SD/MMC Host Controller
    IDE Controller Ricoh xD-Picture Card Controller
    Storage Controller Microsoft iSCSI Initiator
    Disk Drive FUJITSU MHZ2250BH G2 (250 GB, 5400 RPM, SATA-II)
    Disk Drive FUJITSU MHZ2250BH G2 (250 GB, 5400 RPM, SATA-II)
    Optical Drive TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L632N ATA Device

    What I already tried:

    iAtkos v1, v2 and v4a
    iDeneb v1.1
    Leo4All v3
    2 other versions of which I couldn't see what they were

    All of the above with and without -v -x -y cpus=1, tried many types of setup customizations.

    To install, I used the second hard disk, shrinked it and formatted 10GB of it as MAC Extended Journaled, I tried burning the DVD with 2 different drives (by now I have about 10 DVDs with different versions of Leo in them, lol) with all of the installatios, the process starts, but half way through, or even before that I get an error with "not able to read the content of "Essential" package or some other packages".

    I can't change much in my bios, everything thing seems to be locked. Any ideas for a modded bios?

    What I haven't tried:
    A. Use Kalyway 10.5.2, for two reasons: 1st I found 2 versions (3,4GB and around 6GB) so I didn't know which one to use, and 2nd I wasn't so sure it might work, cuz that isn't much different than all the other versions I used.

    B. Hack my bios, only cuz I wasn't sure which modded version to use and if it might help.

    So here I go, seeking your help. I would appreciate if anyone could help me, cuz believe me my head is about to explode after almost 1 week of trying. Maybe it's me, doing something wrong, of maybe it's the Laptop, anyway, suggestions are more than welcome.

    Thanks a lot.

    Well, at least you get the installation running, i didnt get dat until I mod my BIOS, so I dunno if you need a MOD one but if you wanna try, you can ask to macnut for it (nicely).

    About Kalyway, PPL has report success with Kalyway 10.5.1 with Pavilion DV9000 with ToH Kernel, I guess Kalyway 10.5.2 will work too but anyway try the 1st, just in case

    Question, You have Enable AHCI Mode? Execute Disable In the BIOS?


    Good luck

    Thanks for your reply icchansan.

    Luckily I have a fast connection, so I downloaded the Kalyway 10.5.2 and will try it in a minute with the ToH Kernel, see if it works.

    I couldn't get your question about the bios though. Do you think i can change AHCI-Mode properties in my locked bios? How? And how can i execute disable in the bios? I'll try it anyway.

    Thanks for ur help again.
