Trackpad and keyboard
My Trackpad and Keyboard were working during installation!
BTW ... using the Hazard install disc.
I have the dv9205us model.
Ok Im so frustrated....no matter what i have tried in a few months of attempting to get this OS X running. . . I get nowhere.
I can succesfully finish the install where it tells you to restart. After restarting I put in a Boot Dic, I have tried NAWCOMM, PirateEFI and iBoot. No success to get OS X to even load. Sometimes it will get to the gray apple screen but reboots. Someone please help....tell me what the easiest way to get OS X running is for my model laptop. Thanks.

Reason: updating status of install
Post Thanks / Like
I have a dv9000 us version. I have installed the retail dvd of SL using empire efi. keyboard and mouse worked but the screen had lines through it. My laptop does not have nvidia card but intel 3100. Hope this helps. If anyone knows how to load the intel gsm 3100 graphics drivers I would appreciate it.
**I am working on documentation and video on installing OSX on dv9000 -9535us. Will post once finished. There are alot of people asking about installing OSX on dv9000 and not enough documentation or info on it.
Hope this helps.
DRGOOS3, that is in fact the issue I'm trying to fix.
I was able to notice that the trackpad/keyboard work sometimes on the first boot. But then IT STOPS COMPLETELY.
I've tried with the Old Apple PS2, Voodoo PS2, and any other method possible to get it to work. Nothing has worked.
I hope anybody here could bring us information on how to fix this issue as these computers run OS X even better than an original Mac.
I did a benchmark test of my 9205US and a MAC Pro and my HP had the Mac Pro biting the dust, except on Hard drive Seek.
If you find a solution to this problem. Please don't hesitate in posting in the forum as it would be very helpful for all of us HP DVers.
Sorry I took so long to reply. I've been quite busy lately.

This tutorial I made is for AMD Processors. The DVs with AMD have several different parts. Usually the ones with Intel Processors are more compatible in general hardware.
If you need to load the drives for your graphics card I suggest you visit Kexts.com as they have a huged database of kexts for many different parts.
Also, try forcing a resolution with com.apple.boot.plist. It worked for me in other computers with Intel processors.
For example add:
It will force your graphics card to use 1280x768 resolution with a 32-bit depth.
I hope it could be of service.
Brandon, have you tried putting these flags when you boot?
-f -v Usually I have to boot using them. In fact, I added them to com.apple.boot.plist.
Yes I have. Right now I am trying to install again using iATKOS v7 instead of OSX SNOW LEOPARD 10.6.1-10.6.2 By HAZARD...
The installation screen boots up fine.....I will be formatting with GUID and MAC JOURNALED.
Run the install and see if it boots.

Regarding the Mouse/Keyboard. I searched everywhere for a kext that will work on the DV9205US and NONE worked. So I gave up on it. I also noticed some flaws like : Preview not showing pictures, but it would show PDFs. That was weird!
The only version of OS X that really ran TOTALLY SMOOTH was Leopard.
I regret to inform you that I sold the DV9205US so I will not be able to do any more posting on this thread as I created it to help on that computer model specifically.
I'm glad this thread has served many of us to install Snow Leopard on our annoying DV9205US. As you know, this is all a testing community and every new discovery posted will be greatly appreciated by other fellas.
I got an Intel Core 2 Duo DV5-1253CL now. I will be posting for that computer on a new thread once I finish the Tutorials.
I've been able to install Snow Leopard and Lion on that computer with all the updates running near perfect. In fact, vanilla works too.
The tutorial file is still available on DepositFiles and it will continue to be there as long as it is downloaded once in a while by somebody. I will still have it in case it is deleted and somebody needs it.
It's been a good ride. I hope you keep this thread getting better with your findings.
P.S. OOHH!!! One last contribution. If you don't want a USB dongle for WIFI. You can simply change the internal WIFI Card [bottom covers of your computer] for a BCM94322 Mini PCI-e. You can get them very cheap all over the net and it is supported Out Of The Box in ALL OS X Distros/Retail and recognized as Apple AirPort. Take Care.
