I have a Lenovo G470 with a Intel Pentium B940 (Sandy Bridge with HD 2000, rPGA988B socket) and possibly I soon change it processor to a Core i3-2330M (also Sandy Bridge and rPGA988B socket but with HD 3000).

If your laptop doesn't have the CPU welded you can make a change like mine. In your case from the Celeron B830 to the Core i3-2330M (Both with Sandy Bridge technology and rPGA988B socket).

This way give you a Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU and you can make use of QE/CI.

hey it is for the Synaptics touchpad pad for im dualbooting so that is fine i do have windows installed on it the clover is confusing for me or maybe im just doing it wrong also wanted to mention that the hardrive im using the only way for he bios to see the hardrive is to have it formted in MBR format not GPT that is why bootloaders do not reconize the harddrive.


http://www.osx86.net..._ps2_32-64.html download the trackpad Synaptics gesture. I don't know to do it without GPT sorry.

If your laptop doesn't have the CPU welded you can change it for a Intel Core i3-2330M or similar (Core generation processors have HD 3000 and HD 4000 and this graphics are compatible). But first you must check the chipset; if you have Intel HM65 (Sandy Bridge) or Intel HM76 Chipset (Ivy Bridge) is possible to make the change, if you have Intel HM70 Chipset (Ivy Bridge) you can't. And remember, the supported socket is rPGA988B.

Regards and lucky!

In Windows go to Computer, Manage, Device Manager. Open "System devices" and see if it says Intel HM65, HM76 or HM70.

Unfortunately you can't change the processor. Only with HM65 and HM76 chipsets.
