Help (PLEASE!) installing on HP Pavilion Elite m9450f
Sorry for double posting. I didn't realize there was a separate Snow Leopard section. Im looking to install Leopard first. -->
Hello all, my name is Josh and im new to this Hackintosh business. The main reason I want to install Mac OSX on my machine is because I am a fan of the iPhone and PwnageTool only works for OSX. Also I wanted to give the iPhone SDK a try. Good intentions and I dont have the $$$ to pay for a real Mac. The problem im running into is that those knowledgeable in this field really dont want to take the time to help me out. Ive searched and read everywhere but for some reason no one seems to give me a straight answer on this. I even tried running an image on VMWARE but it was a horrible experience. Im trying to install iPC OSX10.5.6 (im willing to try other releases just tell me what to download and ill do it) on an HP Pavilion Elite m9450f so I need help with TWO things:
A) I cant even get the install to start. It says Loading Darwin and then just restarts. I resert the BIOS and still nothing. I also tried different releases. iDeneb etc.
B) Im new to this so I really dont know what configurations I need to check in the Customize screen. I was able to install a copy of iDeneb on my spare laptop but it would never boot. It would just go into an infinite reboot loop.
My specifications are as follows:
HP Pavilion Elite m9450f
Currently running Windows 7 ultimate x64
Chipset: Intel G33 Express
Motherboard: Asus IPIBL-LB
HP/Compaq motherboard name: Benicia-GL8E
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 (Y) 2.5 GHz (95W) 1333 MHz front side bus Socket 775
Bios American Megatrends 5.32
SMBios Version 2.5
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 512 MB GDDR3 memory
802.11 Wireless PCI Express Adapter
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller (Ethernet)
Realtek ALC 888S chipset (Sound)
If someone could please walk me through solving these problems and having a working installation of Mac OSX I would be forever in your debt. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I realize this thread is rather old, but I can definitely help you, as I have the same computer. Although I have not installed Mac yet on it, I know exactly what to do! Let me know if you still need help and message me maybe?
i have this board, i've gotten iatkos s3 to install but after it freezes at the apple, i want to do the same as you found anything?
