Install OS X Yosemite 10.10 on HP notebook

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
I apologize for my bad English.
I'm following this guide:
to install OSX on this notebook:
At one point the guide it says that I have to use a custom kernel, so I have to type "/hp", but where?
I have tried the following steps:
1. I created no problems the PenDrive
2. I started the notebook with PerDrive
3. appeared lettering on a black background: https://www.dropbox.com/s/eudhyzpv4wvyud9/1.JPG?dl=0
4. I typed "-v /hp" (without quotes: I hope I have done correctly)
5. At one point appeared the following error:
The OS Xinstallation couldn't be completed
The guide is written in case of error type:
cp -f   /Volumes/"Image Volume"/haswell   /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
rm -rf  /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Caches
kextcache -u  /Volumes/"Mac OS"
substituting, of course, the variables with those of my context.
Where should I put these strings? I have to edit a file into the PenDrive?
Which one?
I hope with some of you are very kind to give me some advice?
If you need some more information please do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks in advance

Thanks for the answer, but I still do not understand:-(
1. Where can I see if I have a haswell?
2. Where do I write / haswell?
3. Where do I write BootFlag? Do I have to edit a text file?
PS: I tried typing "-v /haswell" after the string "boot:", but after 30 minutes it seems that went into the loop with the string you see in the image I have attached:
I'm desperate:-(
Do you have any advice?

Well I had a problem similar to this but for me, after it the words lag and if I look closely it says "Cannot save Panic Log to NVRAM" and "Ddeebbuuggeerr nnoott ccoonnffiigguureedd" (which means "Debugger not configured" but I wrote it exacly like it was on my screen)
