HP 2000 Notebook PC - BIOS settings?


I am sure my new laptop is compatible with Mavericks, it does run a AMD E-300 APU @ 2 cores @ 1.3 GHz, it may seem bad to a majority of you, but ti runs wicked fast for me, and I use heavy applications like Photoshop, FL Studio, etc. Anyway, today I decided to try again and install Niresh, last time I didn't know how to access my BIOS in Windows 8.1, now,I have figured it all out, but, I went into my BIOS, and I do not see any options to change SATA to AHCI and then when I try to set the PC to boot from USB, it continues to Windows 8.1 (Update 1). It does have UEFI Boot setting alongside Legacy? If anyone can help or provide some facts to this, thanks! o//u//o

The Power of your machine doesn't dictate if it's hackintosh compatible. It's strictly Architecture of the CPU, and compatibility with your hardware. The E series might be difficult, but look for guides of others. What you have is a budget series AMD APU. I managed to boot my AMD A8-5500 by disabling secure boot, enabling legacy, writing the image to my USB drive, booting with amd -v. Do not expect to have graphics working with QE/CI out of the box, and from what you're asking, I don't know that you understand what that even means. As far as changing your controller to AHCI, it likely is already, as it probably doesn't have PATA/SATA settings given the newer chipset. I don't want to upset you, but there's volumes to learn before you decide that you can install OS X. It's not just the power, it's specific hardware, or non-standard hardware supported through the hard work of people who are making kexts for free.

Thanks for the info! And I guess I misunderstood a majority of it, thanks for the clarifying! So, I want to know, will the graphics work or not? Meaning, will I see a GUI? Can you elaborate please? I know the Amd E series does support MAvericks because I foudn another person online who booted it and used it on the same CPU, I just need to figure out how to get the USB to boot.. o-o

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
