HP Laptop Support ?

Question

Hi Guys,

 

I have an : HP Envy 15 j163ei notebook and would like to find out how compatible it is with Hackintosh, i've managed to get it loaded with Hackintosh however it seems like there is a lot of problems.

 

  • Sound is not working
  • Wifi not working
  • LAN not working

 

There could be more, if anyone else has this exact same notebook could you please let me know if you got these sorted perpaps or if anyone else has some information that may help ?

 

link to my exact notebook : http://www8.hp.com/za/en/products/laptops/product-detail.html?oid=6894560

 

Thanks in advance...

@5pArxz 740m might be supported but not officially, so i think you need to boot with hd graphics first, you are only able to boot with -x is because the nvidia graphics not working properly. try to boot with boot flag: '-v nv_disable=1 "Graphics Mode"="1920x1080x32" GraphicsEnabler=Yes IGPEnabler=Yes IntelAzulFB=XX'(ranging from 0 to 15, usually work with 10-12, just by trial and error) you should be able to boot without safe mode(-x). 

 

edit: oops, i just checked, 740m may not be support in any way now

@

sound: just use voodoo, and normally you will get a kernel panic, just modify according to this, will be fine

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/267905-voodoohda-common-problems/

lan: you can use niresh's all in one network solution.

wifi: i am using newer model, with different wifi, can't help you. but i remember that someone with j model can use wifi, try to find out on Google

@, no i have 2 notebooks. other one is an Acer but how will i get the files from that notebook to the other with mac installed ?

@ just use a usb, mac can read and write fat and exfat, read ntfs, so all format you used on windows can help you transfer those drivers file

@ Yes i've tried that initially but if i format the usb mac osx extended or whatever then windows cannot read it and if i format it fat32, exfat or ntfs then mac cannot mount it ? ( at least that is what is happening to me ) because if i can get the Lan working i guess i can get more things going.

 

Thanks for the help :)

@ windows cannot mount hfs+ without additional software, but mac can mount fat32 and exfat to read and write, only read can be done for ntfs.

    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks!

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
