    Because of this, I couldn't get pass the setup screen. Here's a quick recap of what I have and what I did:

    My Laptop: HP Pavilion G6 2291sa (E5L26EA)

    In-a-nutshell specs:

    OEM OS: Windows 8
    Processor: Intel Core i3 3110m

    RAM: 8G
    Graphics: Intel HD 4000 (integrated)
    Storage: 1TB SATA

    Optical Drive: DVD/RW Multi Layer
    Ports: 1x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA

    My laptop came with Windows 8, which I updated to Windows 8.1 via the Windows Store. I then updated it to Windows 8.1 Pro. I deleted the recovery partition that it came with to make room for the mac installation.


    I did not have a Mac, so first I installed iAtkos ML2 on a Virtualbox using following this guide (hxxp://vvv.macbreaker.com/2013/01/iatkos-ml2-mountain-lion-virtualbox.html) which basically tells you how to create a bootable USB installer using Carbon Copy Cloner.

    After that, I booted it up and followed this guide (
    hxxp://vvv.macbreaker.com/2013/01/install-mountain-lion-iatkos-ml2-hackintosh.html) to install it for real.


    Everything went smoothly, except once I boot it up, I can't get the trackpad mouse/keyboard to work. So I'm stuck in the setup welcome screen. Do you guys have any ideas? Anything I can do to get this fixed? TIA!

    Have you been over to tonymac86.com?

    Join their forums and download iBoot for Ivy Bridge.

    I have dabbled in Hackintosh on my LGA 1155 Ivybridge but I am no expert at all.

    This may or may not help but perhaps worth a try and by looking over there you might find the info you need .

    Good luck.

    Installing OS X on personal computer is a hard work that does no matter what distro is used for.

    that they will, if he goes around asking piracy question. I am on there, just to grab their stuff really. You gotta be careful what you ask and how you ask it.:cool:

    if u say u have AMD, iatkos or any distro. and lots more, they will ban u.

    funny u say grab their stuff. they actualy stole most of it themselves and made it into a 1 click hope it fix package.

    youre better off going to a reall osx community like insanelymac and actually learn something without fear of being banned

    Don't use iBoot anyway. It's an old bootloader based on boot132/Chameleon. The best is Clover, which supports UEFI. Your Windows 8 laptop most likely uses UEFI.
