Isn't installing OS X on a non-Apple hardware against Apple EULA in the first place?

Yes, but that you do in relative privacy.  Distributing portions of NDA builds, not so private...

For Apple HDA I replaced the lib and plist files with the ones out of the old AppleHDA for 10.8.4 and patched the binary using B.C.`s patch-hda.1.1 script. For AppleIntelCPIPowerManagement I used this patch: http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1003

Oh, I see. I'm asking because I've implemented a new OS X support options in the last two beta versions of the Installer, which are patch-based (bcc9's AppleHDA patch 2.0 and el coniglio's AICPM patch, improved by RehabMan) and I was wondering if there could be another way. BTW, by removing the old OS X support options from the Installer (pre-patched kexts based), the Installer became arond 6 MB smaller.

Which kexts in particular should I remove, as stated in the 2nd point of the "tutorial" in the first post? My usb key hangs on boot...

there were no changes except the Audio, so backup audio kext then after reboot, reintall it and you'll be fine. This is for dp8 update from dp7 from my desktop

i am testing now on probook 4530s will report later

i did that until a new patched files out, but they are the same, no version changes.

Patch to IO80211Family.kext or PlugIns is never necessary (for Atheros 9285).

ProBook Installer will patch AppleHDA.kext for you.

Hey guys,

 

I`m changing my ProBooks display at the moment. I will update ProBook.ZIP in a few days, but I think you just have to patch AppleHDA as RehabMan said and maybe AICPM.kext.

Hey guys,

The current version of the ProBook Installer (6.1.4) will patch both for you.  No need to do manual patching or anything.

 

You will want to install as normal, then run ProBook Installer as normal, then install the latest GenericUSBXHCI (until the ProBook Installer is updated with the latest).

Yeah, guys, you haven't heard this from me ;) , but the latest ProBook Installer supports Mavericks unofficially (with the settings for 10.8, of course).

Note that there isn't any version specific selections in the current version of the ProBook Installer... :-)

Hey thanks for the tip about patching AppleHDA, I done what you said and now I have audio, but on 10.8 I had HDMI audio working with AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext do I need to patch this kext too to receive HDMI audio using the same method you said? Also I have lost my mic too, in System Preferences > Sound > Input > "No input devices found", is this because I didn't patch correctly?  

 

EDIT: In System Information > Hardware > Audio, I have the following: 

 

Devices:

 

Built-in Output:

 

  Default Output Device: Yes

  Default System Output Device: Yes

  Manufacturer: Apple Inc.

  Output Channels: 2

  Current SampleRate: 44100

  Transport: Built-in

So it seems it is getting recognised, don't you agree?

That sound nice. It looks like my work is over now. Let`s wait for Mavericks GM!

Maybe so, but we still need testers. RehabMan is the only one who has tested it on Mavericks so far. Maybe you could join him too. You can download the latest Installer at the usual places (my Dropbox space and the mirror @ BitBucket).

Although some parts of the ProBook Installer can be used on other HP laptops, the ProBook Installer itself is specific to the HP ProBoook 4x30s and 4x40s laptops.  Any other laptop requires special procedures for installing.

My new 1080p display will hopefully arrive tomorrow. If so I can test the new PBI and report back to you guys. Before installation I will change back all kexts to vanilla versions to preclude problems with my patched kexts.

Hello!

This is my first post, just want to give something back to the community.

 

Installed 10.9 dp8 today! Works perfect!

 

Did this:

-installed 10.9 dp1 with myhack

-rebooted via USB installer (U.Beast w. 10.8.4)

-installed Probook installer 6.1.6 as usual

-rebooted, everything works!

 

-Updated with software update 10.9 dp2 to dp8. Just restarted after each update. Just from HD, no USB. No Probook installer between updates.

After latest update (10.9 dp8), i ran the Probook installer 6.1.6 again. And all is good!

 

Thanks for your help

Just FYI: From your description I gather that myHack is installing NullCPUPowerManagement somewhere.  Otherwise you would not be able to boot without the USB after an AppStore based update.  As a result power management on your laptop is broken and your battery life will be very short.  Either that, or there is some kind of live patching of AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.

Fast reply:)

Ok, so how do I fix this? Do I need to fix it?

Just delete /Extra/Exentensions folder. ProBook Installer should have patched AICPM.kext for you.

      I have a HP 840 G3 that was donated to me to Hackintosh, currently running High Sierra 10.13.6. This should work for the 840 G2 and you may even have more luck with the 840 G1 with the WiFi that PCIe.
       
      My method to install OS X on the SSD from a working real Mac via SSD to USB converter. I then install Clover and add my kexts ad set the config.plist
       
      Not working
      SD Card reader
       
      Working
      Video - screen looks better in OS X then it does in Windows 10
      VGA port
      WiFi and BlueTooth working OOO using the below hack
      Battery status with Rehabman's DSDT patch
      Brightness controls
      Sounds - using VoodooHDA
      Microphone - cannot turn it off or mute
      Keyboard backlight - controlled though BIOS anyways
      touchpad - using VoodooPS2Controller
      USB3 - this laptop has two on board only and I haven't test them using the docking station
      USB3.1 C
      Ethernet - using IntelMausiEthernet
      Sleep - kind of, closing the lid doesn't go to sleep but goes to sleep over time.
       
      Not tested
      This laptop does not have a Webcam - enterprise model.
      Display port
      Finger Print device
       
      For me what keeps this from being a day to day usable laptop (Mac Book) is the WiFi + Bluetooth, not having battery percentage could be an issue later though.
       
      Clover_folder for those that want to play along.
