    Default Mac OS X Snow Leopard in HP dm3

    Hi all,

    I'm new here. Already got Mac OS running on my old Acer.. But I'm thinking about buying a new notebook, and therefore wondering if it's possible to install a distro on a HP dm3 intel version (sold as HP dm3-1040ez in Switzerland). Here are the specs:

    • Intel Pentium SU4100 (64-bit)
    • Intel GMA 4500MHD
    • SATA HDD 500GB @ 7200rpm
    • 4GB DDR3 RAM
    • Intel 802.11 a/g/n
    • Integrated Bluetooth


    Does someone know about how HP hardware is supported by the distros (iATKOS for example)? What are you thinking about Intel 802.11 Wifi, will it work (just a bit unsure because I got a damn Atheros or Realtek chip in my computer now...)..
    Would you recommend another distro?

    Thanks in advance!

    (sorry for my english.. still learning..)

    Hi!

    I got a HP Pavilion dm3-1020 (it's 1020eg, but i think it's almost the same as 1020us and other models, only localised)

    Specs:
    Intel Pentium SU4100 (1.30 GHz/2 MB/800 MHz FSB)
    4096 MB DDR3-RAM
    512 MB NVIDIA GeForce G 105M
    No CD-Drive
    Couldn't find information about the chipset, where do you get that?

    I managed to create a bootable iBoot-Stick, but sooner or later when I then try to install (either from the Snow Leopard Retail DLDVD over a usb dvd drive or from a usb hdd), sooner or later there's the device timeout.
    One time it got stuck with the "uptime in nanoseconds" thing.

    Do you have any ideas? It's my first try with OSX, but i already read many threads. A problem is that I don't understand what information is up to date.
    Is there a reason to try something but iBoot?
    Is boot132 only for 10.5?
    What about kalyway/iDeneb/iAtkos for Snow Leopard?

    I understand and would prefer an installation with my Retail DVD, but in the end I want an updateable Snow Leopard System, triple booting with burg as bootloader. I know it's a long way to go, first step: Having a way to install Snow Leopard standalone

    Can you help me?
    Or do have a similar system and want us to help each other?
    Do you have a useful list of resources of knowledge or downloads?

    Answer this thread please
    And sorry for poor english Oo

    Greetings

    Parn

    Hi,
    You can use CPU-Z to check for system specs.

    I agreed, you specs is good and should not have much trouble. I've heard people running OSX on it.

    Default ebios read error: device timout or system uptime

    I tried very much until now and found many resources, but the farest I get is either "ebios read error: device timeout" or "system uptime in nanoseconds:...".

    I mirrored the OS10.6 Retail DVD on many places like a usb dvd drive, a usb flash drive and now even a partition on the hdd. (used dd from a live linux)
    From now on I will try to use the one on the hdd, as I feel like there are problems with usb during the installation.

    To boot these installation volumes I tried tonymacosx86' iBoot, chameleon RC2/3/4 and some forks on an usb flash drive.
    I also tried to use my own dsdt with some modifications.

    Where can I find more information about patching your own dsdt?(without the dsdt patcher, as I only have a running OS X in VMWare yet)

    Or is there a dsdt patcher I can use to patch my specific dsdt.dsl?
    The one I tried reads the current system's dsdt (in my case a useless VMWare-dsdt) and patches it.

    Or is there a dsdt patcher for Linux?
    So I can use it from my live distro.

    Is it necessary to format the hdd in GUID/GPT to boot the install DVD? Could this be the reason for "System uptime in nanoseconds"-halt or "ebios error: device timout"?

    I am very sure that AHCI is set by default, but the dm3's bios is very minimal and you can't set anything but the boot devices. I'ld also like to know if it has UEFI set, as there was a very awkward partitioning by hp. is there a way to find out? gparted seems not able to write uefi partition tables though...

    Come on hp dm3 users! Find this thread and let's do it toghether!


    Edit: The device timout error always appears after
    Found SMBIOS System Information Table 1
    Customizing System ID with : xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

    LOL, it looks like you're doing lots of homework already.

    I'm not a HP user and don't have a DM3.

    But there are few questions/suggestions that may assist you.

    Is your retail DVD a real one, or is it an image .iso, .dmg?

    And you used Linux to restore it to USB/HDD etc.?

    hi ratvn!
    thanks for your reply, i feel a little less lost now

    My source is an original OS X 10-6 Retail DVD.
    Because of some problems I copied it on usb first, later on a partition.
    Ways I used for copiing:
    -Windows with some tools for bootable usb device
    -Windows dd.exe for bootable usb device
    -Linux liveCD (Mint/Ubuntu/Gparted) dd for bootable usb device AND bootable hdd partition
    -iDeneb on VMWare DiskUtility for bootable usb device

    The first trys I had a hard time to create bootable usb-sticks on Windows, now I think to easiest method is the iDeneb on VM method. Linux dd is also very succesfull and convinient though.
    For the Retail DVDs health I now use an image (dmg) created with the diskutil of iDeneb 1.6 lite from the original Retail DVD.

    As I wanted to try dsdtpatcher I tried to install ideneb 1.6 on the hp dm3, altough I really don't want to keep it. With iDeneb the installation works, but I still don't get past the "system uptime in nanoseconds"-halt.
    No idea were to start next.
    Maybe I really have to dive into deeper dsdt-knowledge... if I only knew if the problem really is there

    Update: iFail again, this time with myHack
    I'm starting to get used to you, my beloved "system uptime in nanoseconds"-halt...
    Still no idea what causes you, but I am very sure that a perfect dsdt would fix you, because this time I read the following:

    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x2a6ac2): Kernel trap at 0x002b33f5, type 14=page fault, registers:
    CR0: 0x8001003b, CR2: 0x541092b5, CR3: 0x00100000, CR4: 0x000006e8
    EAX: 0x00000000, EBX: 0x00000000, ECX: 0x00863aa0, EDX: 0x00879dc0
    CR2: 0x541092b5, EBP: 0x4fdebe88, ESI: 0x00000000, EDI: 0x00000000
    EFL: 0x00010046, EIP: 0x002b33f5, CS: 0x00000008, DS: 0x00000010
    Error code: 0x00000000

    Debugger called: (panic)
    Backtrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack)
    0x4...(not even me would write all of this without hope for someone who profits from it...)
    ...
    ...0x778fe61f)

    BSD process name corresponding to current thread: unknown

    Mac OS version:
    Not yet set

    Kernel version:
    Darwin Kernel Version 10.0.0: ...(you know this by heart already, don't you?)

    System uptime in nanosuckonds: 539851397
    I really don't understand anything of this yet, but because of the registers mentioned at the beginning of the error, I think it has something to do with the dsdt.
    I'll try my previously amateurish selfpatched dsdt and hope for a difference now. If only iDeneb worked on the hp dm3, or if there was something like a dsdtpatcher for linux, or one that lets you choose a dsdt.aml/dsdt.dsl from a different computer...

    see you!

    I like your spirit
    Here are some observations/suggestions:

    1. Your previous Ebios... problem may be caused by reading error of a Hybrid-ISO (your retail DVD), which neither Windows nor Linux know how to handle correctly, and beside OSX Disk Utility, there are only a couple softwares could do it.

    2. DSDT would be needed but in many cases, it may not be the real problem even OSX says so.

    3. Your retail DVD installation (that for real mac hardware) would need additional OSX patches and post installation system support files for it to work on your system.

    4. There are output before that KP screen for additional clues of what happening. So if that is in the very early stage of booting process than this may help to eliminate the possibilities.

    5. Even though your CPU is 2 core, its micro-architecture is nowhere near the Core 2, in which most of SL vanilla kernels are based on. So wrong kernel selection may cause such behavior/error/KP.

    6. For both Ideneb and SL, you should try different kernel to see if it goes any further. Suggestion would be Voodoo or Legacy kernels (and only select one at a time).

    7. Boot options: always try with -x -v till it made it into desktop screen, and you should, just in case, mix in: cpus=1, busratio=20 (and -f every times changing system files to force caches/kexts rebuilt).

    8. Your hardware configurations cause the problem. It's a possibility, but that is not the conclusion for now and would require further investigation and solution.


    Well, good luck and keep me posted.

    Regards
