I tried installing Mac OS 10.6 on HP Pavilion DV6 but before starting the setup menu, I came across a message that says “You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button.
The thing is, I was able to install it once on a computer but now I can’t do it on a laptop. I’m including in this message the specs of my system that you may use it for further reference RAM:6GB; CPU: Intel Core i5 2.53; VGA: 1G ATI.
I really hope you’ll be able to help me.
Assistance required in installing Mac OS 10.6 on HP Pavilion
The main reason is you installed Mac OS 10.6 before in your computer. That’s why your HDD have some previous data of Mac OS 10.6. So this message comes “You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button…” because computer wanted to remove those previous data first.
To do this you have to format one of your partitions to clean that partition and prepare it for Mac OS 10.6. So try to install Mac OS 10.6. In a formatted partition or other partition that was not used to install Mac OS 10.6 before. This is the solution of that problem.
