What kind boot do you use while install OSX and I did put in my usb and it wont read it. So, Do I have to formatting the hard drive as fat32 or what? Cuz I had windows 7 on it already and I did make second partition for OSX but I need to know how to do boot and usb first before I go ahead boot up with usb. I do know how to boot up in start up but usb wont read.

Thanks,

Can you put all the info how to install Mac OS X on HP Envy 17-J037CL cuz I had same one. Please? I tired to install Mac OS X 10.6.1-10.6.2 for AMD or Intel cpu but got panic error by Voodoo Kernel. Can you explain how you got all through works. I have Mavericks OS but I cant get burn on DVD from Win 7.

Start with this guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/374-unibeast-install-os-x-mavericks-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html

You will need to patch the mach_kernel. See: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks...-locked-msrs-hp-envy-15-j063cl-i7-4700mq.html

Snow Leopard (10.6) does not support your system (Haswell). Only ML 10.8.5 and Mavericks. Not to mention that 10.6.1 and 10.6.2 are not available from Apple.

You will need to borrow a Mac, or attempt to install Snow Leopard 10.6.8 (will have to start with genuine Apple DVD for 10.6 or 10.6.3) using iBoot Haswell along with working Ethernet so you can access the Mac App Store.

Obviously, it is easier to borrow access a friend/family's Mac..

RehabMan.

Also I went to bios system and change to EFI mode and wont read usb at all so I changed back to Legacy mode then usb work. Right now I dont have any Windows on my hard drive and just plain. Do I have to format to Fat 32 or what on current hard drive?
