    Thumbs up Snow Leopard on HP Pavilion DV9000 [9205US] ???

    I have tried to install OS X on a Pavilion DV9000 with no luck so far.

    Specs are:
    Maker: HP
    Model: DV9205US [DV9000 series]
    CPU: AMD Turion 64 X2 Taylor
    Video: nVidia GeForce Go 6150
    RAM: 1GB PC5300
    HDD: 320GB [160GB for OS X, 160GB for Windows 7]
    Optical: DVD+-RW DL
    Built in Webcam, Audio, Wifi

    I've tried the following Distros:

    Snow Leopard 10.6.1 - 10.6.2
    iPC 10.5.6 Universal PPF5
    iPC 10.5.6 for Intel & AMD
    iDeneb 1.6 Lite Edition
    iDeneb 1.5.1 V.10.5.7
    Snow Leopard by Hazard 10.6.1
    iAtkos v.7
    Leopard Kalyway 10.5.2
    iDeneb 1.3 10.5.5
    Mac OSX Tiger 10.4 with Boot 132
    OS X Build 10A432 with Boot 132

    So far I haven't been able to boot into the Intaller. I've burned over 15 DVDs and nothing yet.

    Has anybody installed it on this model of HP? Can anyone point me to the right one?

    Ok, I've managed to get OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.2 on this computer. Sadly, nobody here helped me.

    I will post what I had been doing for anybody else that is interested and finds this post on the internet.

    My Specs are:

    Model : HP DV9205US
    CPU: AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50 1.6Ghz [2 cores]
    RAM: 2 GB PC5300 DDR2
    Hard Disks : 2 [OS X on PRIMARY hard Disk w/ Ubuntu 10.10] [Windows 7 on the secondary]
    Wi-Fi: Broadcom 4311
    Ethernet: nForce LAN
    Audio : Conexant Hi Definition Audio
    Graphics : nVidia Go 6150

    Distro Installed: Snow Leopard by Hazard 10.6.1 [includes combo update for 10.6.2]

    Ok, I only selected what I was sure.

    1. Chipset - didn't specify [Working by default]
    2. Legacy kernel
    3. Graphics Enabler [Outputs 1024x768]
    4. Webcam [Working by default]
    5. Ethernet [Working by default]
    6. Keyboard Touch buttons [Working by default]
    7. FireWire apparently working [Never used it]

    For some reason it took forever to load the installer. It was sheer luck that I had to leave and left it on. When I came back it was up.

    On later installations I've realized it doesn't really take that long. IT JUST SEEMS like it froze after attempting to probe the Disks. LEAVE IT BE and it will load.

    My Keyboard and Mouse are not working. I had to use a USB Keyboard/Mouse combo.
    I noticed that for some strange reason, sometimes it actually hits it on and works, but only after having the USB combo used.

    Not working: Webcam, integrated Mouse/Keyboard and Wi-Fi.

    To solve the audio issue: Select VoodooHDA from the installer options for audio.

    After installation, go into: OSX Partition/System/Library/Extensions and DELETE AppleHDA.kext It will work, not too loud but hey! it's audio.

    So that's it for now. Any progress will be inserted.

    Hi PREngineer, great news you managed to get your DV9205US OSX-ed! I have got the same laptop and tried a couple of 10.5 distros about 2 years ago without much luck. I will get myself a second hard drive this week and will try to get OSX running on my laptop. Can you disclose where you dl-ed hazards distro? Anyway I will google for it.

    Some quick questions that spring to mind:
    - you got QE/CI graphics?
    - are the 2 cores detected and is it running 64 bit?
    - is all software running? Can you upgrade beyond 10.6.2

    I have got a Lenovo s10e netbook running vanilla SL for a year and a half now and really like it. Upgrading my DV9205 to the same will be very nice.

    Did you meet any other DV9205 hackintoshers? Is more info available on any of the popular hackintosh fora like Tony Mac, InsanelyMac etc?

    Ok, time to order a second hard drive. Look forward to your reply.

    regards, Draadloos

  5. Thanks PREngineer thanked for this post.

    Default Hi

    Hello Draadloos,

    So far, I'm the only person with a DV9205US out there that I know of. Nobody else has posted anything for this model, anywhere.

    Ok, the two 10.5 distros that I managed to get running are iPC X-DL 10.5.6 and iDeneb 1.6 [10.5.7]. iDeneb being the one with the better results (probably because I chose the wrong settings).
    ------------------------------
    "Can you disclose where you dl-ed hazards distro?"

    Search your friendly Torrent sites for the names I pointed out. [Snow Leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2 SSE3 Intel AMD by Hazard]
    ------------------------------

    What do you mean by QE/CI Graphics?

    No matter which setting you use, it will only give you 1024x768. That's what it has given me so far. I tried the default, the NVInject, NVEnabler, and Graphics Enabler. All give the same result.

    ------------------------------
    - are the 2 cores detected and is it running 64 bit?

    The CPU is recognized as 64x2 I have to check if it is booting 64 or 32bit but I think it is 64. The computer is being recognized as a Mac Pro 2.

    ------------------------------
    - is all software running? Can you upgrade beyond 10.6.2

    So far, everything is running smoothly. Even the Time Machine. Sleep works, Restart and Shutdown too.

    Being an AMD machine, I can not upgrade like a regular Apple Computer. Intel Machines can though. For an upgrade you need to use the Combo Package for the appropriate version you wish to upgrade and probably re-patch the kernel back to Legacy.

    Only problem which I'm actively studying to resolve is having the Keyboard/Mouse [integrated] to work. So far, I've done everything through a wireless Keyboard/Mouse.

    Also, the Wireless is not working on this computer for some reason. It recognizes it but it doesn't show any hotspots and the light stays orange.

    Any progress will be added.

    Take Care.

    Hey guys,
    I also have a dv9000. I'm completely new to the hackintosh scene, but I'm looking for a way to run Snow Leopard on it. It seems like you were successful in getting it to install, but the on-board keyboard and touch pad arnt working, but I can deal with that. Could you walk me through on getting it installed anyways?

    Did you ever get your keyboard, and mouse working? I have the HP Pavilion dv6000, and I'm going to try it.

    Default Update

    I still haven't been able to make the onBoard keyboard/touchpad to work.

    I tried the ApplePS2Controller and ApplePS2Trackpad which seemed to work with the DVD in Hazard 10.6.2, but it didn't work.

    I've also tried all versions that I've found of VoodooPS2Controller and VoodooPS2Trackpad and they don't work either. It seems I will have to modify a kext or something, but I haven't researched that yet. I'm waiting for an answer in the voodoo forums regarding VoodooPS2Controller.

    Also, I haven't been able to make the OnBoard WI-FI work [Broadcom 14e4:4311]. It marks an airport but no connections appear.

    I successfully upgraded to 10.6.7 and will post instructions, on how to do it from a fresh install, shortly.

    Hope this helps you.

    If any of you have found how to make the Keyboard/mouse work, please post.

    Default Tutorial to install 10.6.7 on this machine

    Ok, my fellow 9205'ers, here's the tutorial on how to get Snow Leopard 10.6.7 running on your Pavilion 9205US.

    Deposit Files

    I don't know how to post an attachment here so I uploaded it to depositfiles.

    I only need to figure out how to fix the Keyboard/Mouse and Wi-Fi.

    However, for the Wi-Fi, you can buy one of the Mini 150M Wireless N Adapter at ebay. This very small wireless adapter is supported by Snow Leopard as it has a Ralink RT5370 Chipset inside and you can get the driver from here:

    http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=3


    As you can see on the image it kind of got weird on me and marked my CPU as Intel but it is actually AMD Turion 64x2 TL-50.

    Default Keyboard and Mouse Update

    I have a DV6308NR, it has the same processor and GPU as the laptop you used. They are almost identical.
    I was able to install OSX by following your tutorial.

    When I first booted my keyboard and trackpad worked. After I rebooted they no longer did. I found this odd so i reintalled and at first boot I ran dmesg on the terminal and this is what i got:




    At this point they both work
    notice How ApplePS2Trackpad was loaded

    This is the second time


    This was the first time that the trackpad and keyboard worked on the second boot so rebooted



    this is what i got the third time, keyboard and trackpad didnt work. Notice that ApplePS2Trackpad is gone.



    I didn't modify anything I did all of this with a fresh install.

    Hopefully this can lead to a fix.
