    Default SnowLeopard on HP NX9420 laptop

    Hello,

    I've followed the guide at How to Build a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, Start to Finish - Hackintosh - Lifehacker Created the USB drive according to instructions because I was curious how far I would get with it on my hardware setup, which is comletely different from the recommended hardware in the guide but I figured I could use it as a starting point and perhaps get a working system with some tweaks.

    Below are the computers I tried to boot with

    HP NX9420 laptop

    Intel Mobile 945PM Express Chipset
    Core 2 Duo T7200 4 MB cache Intel Centrino Duo
    ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics adapter
    4 GB DDR II SDRAM - 667MHz - PC2-5300

    ---

    Dell Precision T5400

    Intel 5400 Chipset
    Quad-Core Xeon
    NVIDIA Quadro FX570 graphics adapter.

    I get the same error message at boot, I took a picture of it, it's attached this post or or below link:

    SnowLeopardHP-NX9420.jpg

    I assume the relevant part in this error message is the part about AppleACPIPlatform.

    Any ideas or suggestions is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Hi,

    Im almost certain that I've seen support for the ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics adapter.

    ...
    Kernel Extensions in Backtrace (with dependencies):
    com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform(1.3@0xfffff...
    dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily(1.3.0@0xffff...
    dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOP.........

    Plesse see picture for entire message.

    Anyone seen this error message before? Think I can avoid it with the editing or adding of kext-files or something?

    Help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Paul

    You could install Leopard on HP Nx9420?
    I have same model (Core 2 duo @ 1.8Ghz), but after I finished installation and I reboot, the system stopped with the error "Still waiting for root device".
    Probably need some driver but i don't know what.
    I try'it with iPC 10.5.6 latest version with drivers for video and wireless.
    Can you give me some indication?
