Hi Guys,

I searched the whole forum and came across one post regarding the HP 8530P notenook but there was no info in there.

The problem I have is that I boot using ATI-iBoot or Supported iBoot, both versions only allows me to enter the Mac setup using -x (safemode), the OS installs but then again I can only boot the OS in safe mode.

1stly after installation when trying to boot normally i get the double panic error, so I booted with safe mode, ran all the updates I could find then multi beast and selected my CPU type and boot screens.

Now normal boot stucks at the white apple screen and the cirle thingy just turns for hours with no progress.

Can anyone help me please there are other memebers aswell with the same problems that I have I am sure there of.

I have Mac running on a older model HP 6910P and my Gigabyte Desktop at home.

I did it on my 8530p...

boot with boot cd
Install with -x
boot with install disc, remove the ATIX--- Librairies (they don't work with our chipset)
install network libraries
install chameleon or other bootloader

everything work, except for wireless... also the graphics are basic, so no high resolution and no acceleration...

Hi there,

I'm also trying to properly install 10.6.8. on 8530p.

I succeded to run system and update.

But some things are not clear and here I would need your help:
* did you succeed to install audio and how ?
* machine is recognised as macpro and not as macbook pro
* firewire is sometimes working, usually not

I'm also plannig to replace the graphics to nvidia quadro 770m, and maybe even wireless, if I find something addequate.

Any help will be appriciated !

Thanks
Andrej
