Will I be able to hackintosh a HP dv6-3042tx?
I'm thinking of purchasing a HP dv6-3042tx because of the amazing value right now (on sale for $1500 AUD), and I was wondering whether I would be able to dual-boot Windows and OSX 10.6.3 on it...
HP Pavilion dv6-3042tx Entertainment Notebook PC (WY364PA) specifications - HP Home & Home Office products
The specs are:
- 8 GB DDR3 (2 x 4096 MB)
- ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 Graphics with 1 GB dedicated
- Integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN
I searched around and could not find anyone with a similar build, nor any articles on whether the ATI HD 5650 works with hackintosh.
This is the guide I was planning to follow:
tonymacx86's P55 Hackintosh Blog: iBoot + MultiBeast: Install Mac OS X on any Intel-based PC
Do you think this would be possible?
Yes that should work with iBoot 2.0 Supported and MultiBeast 2.0. I have a Gateway NV5909H which is a bit of a step down cpu-wise but same vidcard.
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 // VEN_1002 & DEV_68C1
Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad // VEN_8086 & DEV_3B09
Conexant Dialup Modem // VEN_8086 & DEV_3B64
Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter // VEN_168C & DEV_002A
Broadcom NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet (BCM57780) // VEN_14E4 & DEV_1692
ATI HDMI Audio Out // VEN_1002 & DEV_AA01
Realtek HD Audio Codec ALC 272 // VEN_10EC & DEV_0272
I've gotten everything working on it minus the intergrated webcam I don't care about, and my ethernet port won't work without a special mac address script... the major downside is there's absolutely no kext's or anything for the ATI 5650, especially Mobility users like us.. so I'm stuck on 1024x768x32@60... I'm gonna attempt an ATI VBIOS hack to see if I can at least achieve native resolution.
Hi! I'm also looking into buying the dv6 3042tx and using it as a Hackintosh...did you end up purchasing it? And if so, did you get the Hackintosh up an running on it?
Can you share the process that worked for you and any issues?
