    Default HP Pavilion Desktop PCs - Will they work?

    Hello @ all

    i'm a newbie in the hackintosh community.
    i want to know if there are drivers for graphics etc...

    HP Pavilion a6639de Desktop-PC (FL320AA) Spezifikationen - HP Privatanwender Produkte

    or this

    HP Pavilion a6738de Desktop-PC (NF481AA) Spezifikationen - HP Privatanwender Produkte

    these are my choices but i really want to know if it works

    I got Mac OS X 10.5.2 on my HP Pavilion dv5000. (what a luck!!)
    And all works except Wireless Lan.
    I'd be very thankful if someone can help me!

    Greetings

    Jogi Sigrak

    (PS: I can't and don't want to build my own PC)

    Well I have a tutorial for HP Pavilion Elite, These one seems similar but Im not sure, Check the HCL for other Desktop Models

    Anyway the link for my tutorial is my signature if you wanna try an Elite, you can install everything you want, even retail, good luck

    i read your tutorial some days ago
    but i think the elite desktops aren't the right for me
    i don't need such a powerful desktop pc
    i haven't buy one of these pcs, yet
    just planning to buy one

    it hasn't to be a HP, i'm searching a good PC from 500€ - 700€ for playing some games,music and watch videos

    Well the trick is the motherboard, maybe yours works, maybe not :/ check the HCL for another prebuild one, just compare prices or build your PC

    Check the sticky in this section if you wanna try to build a computer

    hmmm... i've never built a pc and i haven't time to do it
    on the HP Germany homepage there isn't written the mainboard :/
    so there is a chance of 50% that it will work xD
    or i buy the cheapest elite desktop for ~800€
    but wtf i've never heard of this graphic 'NVIDIA® GeForce™ GT120'
    when was it released and are there drivers for it? ( is it for gaming or only for office? )

    i always read that you have to change the harddisk from SATA to AHCI mode but on my HP Pavilion dv5000 i didn't change anything. i just put the Kalyway 10.5.2 disk in it and it all works

    sorry for all my questions
