    Default Can you install Snow Leopard on HP TM2?

    Hi, I'm thinking on buying an HP TM2 touchscreen notebook and I wanted to know if it was possible to install Snow Leopard on it, and if it was possible if you could direct me to a tutorial on how to it.

    Thanks.

    OSX installs have worked on TouchSmarts. A quick look at that particular models hardware options don't seem to be a problem . As far as tutorials there's some for TouchSmarts, that particular model I can't be sure but Google is your friend . If not well then perhaps you could be the first .

    Yes and no lol. My advice would be to try a distro first like iATKOS v7. It's easier to get running for beginner's and has already been modified to install to a MBR partitioned drive. However when you install, it will break Windows temporarily but to fix it all you need to do is flag the Windows partition active. Use Windows install disc because your probably more comfortable with that. Boot from it click repair it won't see any partitions at first select use advanced tools for repair it may not be worded exactly but along those lines. Select command prompt then type this hitting enter after each line:

    diskpart
    list disk (usually 0 if it's the first drive)
    select disk 0 (substitute the number if not the first drive)
    list partition (this will show your partitions choose Windows partition)
    select partition 1 (note substitute with your number)
    active

    Then reboot with the Windows disc again. This time it will see the Windows partition and will offer you to repair it. Hope this helps .

    Actually the TM2 doesn't come with an optical drive, is there any other way to do it?

    Default Update on this

    I have successfully installed Snow Leopard on the TM2 with the help of iAtk0s S3 v2. It works well except for a few things:

    1. On dual graphics systems, both cards are enabled, only intel is used
    2. Full resultion does not work on Intel HD card
    3. HDMI out does not work
    4. Touch is limited
    5. USB is spotty
    6. Screen rotate and other function buttons are limited
    7. If you have the Intel Wireless card, you will need other wifi source, use ethernet to start with


    What I can do is do a re-install and take notes of each part of the install and the settings that I use to get the system working.

    Sorry it took so long to reply. In order for it to load the installer you must use cpus=1 busratio=17 (if you have the core i5, anything else you need to look up the ratios). I am still working on this but as I am a pre-med student it takes me longer.

    You seem to have the same version i had but after install you MUST use cpus=1 busratio=17 (once again core i5). However, if that doesn't work you will need to use -x cpus=1 busratio=17.

    If that doesn't work, the final thing you can try is:
    -x cpus=1 busratio=17 -f

    Let me know how it goes.
