    I guess that version is not compatible with your configuration..what else had you try?

    Have you tried to Benchmark you HP laptop? I benchmark mine and it didn't do well. It scored 3360 using geek benchmark.

    I did too using the same geek benchmark and it was ok for the type of processor. I haven't finish editing the dsdt.dsl, which might improve the laptop performance. You might want to your hands on your dsdt file and that might help you..

    Have you tried it in x64 mode?
    My 720QM comes out at around 5516-5560.

    Here is a Vanilla Kernel 10.6.4 that has lapic issue fixed (that affect HP's laptops). Thanks to Yehia Amer//mucha/kokomal.

    Installing or replacing the kernel will give you the option of booting up 64 bit mode, not with the Legacy kernel which work on 32 bit only. So, the kernel works great same as the Legacy kernel, loading all 4 cores/8 threads but on 64 bit mode.

    If you already installed Legacy Kernel, all you have to do is replace the legacy_mach for the new mach_kernel. Also if you want to you can rename the new mach_kernel as "Legacy Kernel" instead and there's nothing else to change but if you replace it as mach_kernel you need to make some changes in the com.apple.boot.plist and replace legacy kernel for mach_kernel. If you're booting up from you HD you also need to replace the Mach Kernel in the preboot.dmg. You need to delete the old Mach_kernel or Legacy Kernel (Patched one) from the system root after installing the new one.

    After that you can use:

    <key>kernel flags</key>
    <string>arch=x84_64</string>


    Which will boot up on 64 bit mode.


    So, here is what you need to do:

    If you're starting from scratch.


    Install Snow leopard OS and upgrade until you reach 10.6.4 (If you're using retail copy with old version)

    Install Chameleon Boot and in the Extra folder (System root) copy the Extra folder files from the BootCD (The My Empire EFI has the updated kexts).

    Replace the Mach_kernel from system root. (don't reboot yet)

    Go to System/Library/Extension folder and delete "AppleProfileFamily.kext" from there or you will get blue screen after restart. Use Kext Utility to repair permission/ clean cache and reboot after that. If by any chance you didn't delete "AppleProfileFamily.kext" and you have the blue screen, don't worry, you can delete it by using -s at the startup and at the prompt (where it says "If you want to make changes to a file) type the following:

    Code:
    mount -uw /
    
    rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleProfileFamily.kext
    and exit

    Works perfect! I replaced the legacy kernel for the vanilla kernel and now I can boots on 64 bit mode.

    Than you for sharing mate.

    Hallo Extraspeed,

    please excuse my stupid questions and maybe may worse English, too.

    I have a very similar notebook like you. I have a:
    HP dv7 with a i7-720QM Processor at 1.6GHz,
    4GB DDR3 RAM,
    1GB GeForce GT 230M Graphics and
    2x 500GB SATA HDD

    Somebody told me about to run a PC with mac os. I could not believe it.
    But when I have googled for this, I have red a lot about and it seems to be very normal, like everybody can do this.
    So it began to be very interesting to me. I have bought a Mac OSX Retail (MC223D/A) to try to install like you have written at the beginning of this threat.
    I have loaded and burned the Empire EFI,
    After booting from it, I have switched the discs, pressed the F5 button and started the mac os.
    In the next moment there were written a lot of lines in the background. But after ca 1.5 sites of those lines my notebook reboots and start normal to win7.
    So what I do wrong?
    I have also tried to install on a clear HDD, with a GUID format (partition), also MBR, but all the tries with the same results.
    May be my mac os is the wrong one or is it damaged?
    The disc size is 7.23 GB. But the curious is, that my notebook does not boot from the disc. I do not know if it is ok or normal?

    So please help me with one or more advices.

    Best regards
    rudohl
