Request help with HP ProBook 4530S BIOS

Question

kallen    0
I have an HP ProBook 4530s, supposedly one of the best and easiest computers for Hackintoshing. My current setup is Linux Mint 17 and Windows 7. Ideally, I would like to install OSX in a tri-boot setup, but if I can get the installer to load I am going to test on a blank drive.
 
I have been able to install and run Mavericks in VirtualBox using the ISO. However, Maverisks (.dmg)  and Mountain Lion (.dmg) will not boot from my flash drive. Yes, I choose to boot from USB at start up. Nothing happens and system continues on to my bootloader (grub). Yosemite is the only one I can get my system to start to boot.
 
If I try to boot with no flags, it gets stuck with this message and just keeps repeating:
 
disk1s1: media is not present.
disk1s1: media is not present.
disk1s1: media is not present.
disk2s2: 0x6 (UNDEFINED)

Where is says  (com.apple.ReportCrash.Root.427) the number increases endlessness, but appears to start around 400.
 
In another post (I think in Mavericks) Niresh had told someone with an HP to boot with "hp -v" but I get the error that no library called hp was found.
 
I have followed the tutorials as best I can, but they often mention settings that are not present on my BIOS (like HPET). I'm sure this is a BIOS issue, just not sure what setting I am missing. My system is as follows:
 
HP ProBook 4530s 
i3 Processor
8GB Ram
Hewlett-Packard BIOS 68SRR Ver. F.09
1TB HDD (Partitioned with Windows 7/ Linux Mint 17/ File storage/ unformated space for future OSX)
 
Thanks for any suggestions!!

@kallen The boot-loader with the DMG wont boot your Virtual Machine

Instead you have to use the ISO File

I guess I wasn't clear, my apologies. I was saying that I have been able to install Mavericks in a Virtual Box, but when booting from USB to attempt actual install to the HDD nothing happens.

 

Interestingly, Yosemite 10.10 will give me the error I quoted above, so at least my PC boots from the USB. I decided to try the newest 10.10.1 but it doesn't do anything at all upon boot, just like Mountain Lion and Mavericks. What am I missing that only the 10.10 will even boot? I am using the .dmg downloads and using Image Writer to make the USB.

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • 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! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
