[Guide] El Capitan 10.11 + Windows 10 (Full GPT) on HP Pavilion DV6-3103SL

DISM is your friend!

Part 1: (For all the computers that don't have UEFI)
Prepare two USB keys, one with El Capitan & one with Windows 10.
First put the Windows USB, during the installation (when it asked the Windows code) press shift + f10 and will open the command prompt:

list disk                                       (list of your hdd)
select disk 0                                   (0 is number of your hdd)
clean                                           (ATTENTION clean all your hard disk selected)
convert gpt
create partition efi size=200                   (creates EFI partition)
format fs=fat32 label=EFI  

We made a EFI partition.

In my Hdd I have 3 partitions ( 1 for Mac, 1 for Windows=Ntfs & 1 in exFat for sharing files between the two systems).

create partition primary size=100000            (1 partition for Mac OS X 100GB)
format fs=fat32 quick label=Mac                 (after we will format in HFS+ with disk utility)
create partition msr size=128                   (creates Microsoft Reserved)
create partition primary size=100000            (1 partition for Windows 10 100GB)
format fs=ntfs quick label=Windows              (format in Ntfs)
create partition primary                        (creates a partition with the remaining space)
format fs=exfat quick label=Hdd                 (format in exFat) 

Now the fun part.

We should insert the letters for the partitions. Check

select disk 0
list volume                           (check the assigned letters, REMINDS the letter assigned to the USB "example d")
list partition                        (check the number of partition EFI "example partition 1")
select partition 1
assign letter=h      
list partition                        (check the number of partition Windows "example partition 3")  
select partition 3
assign letter=g

Then we have the letter "D:\" for the USB, "H:\" for the EFI partition & "G:\" for the Windows partition.

Now we need to copy the installation files from the USB to the Windows partition.

dism /apply-image /imagefile:d:\sources\install.wim /index:1 /applydir:g:\


Now we need the Windows EFI boot files.

bcdboot                                       (check the command line)
bcdboot g:\windows /1 en-us /s h: /f UEFI     (in my case "/1 It-it")

Restart the computer with the Mac USB "Clover bootloader", then select Microsoft EFI and start the installation of Windows 10 in FULL GPT

If you don't see the exFat partition in Windows don't worry.

(Take a program like Partition Wizard, format the partition in NTFS  and assigns the letter D:\. Now open the command prompt administrator and write:

select disk 0
list partition                                (check the partition before-exFat = after-NTFS "example partition 4")
select partition 4
format  fs=exfat quick label=Hdd

Now you must have the partition exfat visible and writable)



Part 2:



Don't format or delete the EFI partition.   

From the Mac USB we need delete AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext. 


Now we go in to the installation of El Capitan, with disk utility format the partition "Mac" in HFS+ mac journaled, then install Mac OS X.

While starting El Capitan from your hard drive, we must block AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext. (& add cpus=1 or patch with clover)

When El Capitan is started:

  • Patch AICPM with Clover Configurator
  • Install Clover like this  (of course without installation El Capitan) "Legacy mode"
  • Replace the config.plist in EFI partition and add SMBIOS with clover configurator - macbook pro 6.1
  • Put the DSDT
  • Put HFSPlus.efi, NTFS.efi in drivers64 folder
  • Insert and replace all kext

PS:During the first system start we must go in the system preferences, keyboard, shortcuts and change the key combination of brightness (f2- f3+).

I used the Rehabman's patches and these specific kext.

Hi, @jack-69,

I wonder if you have upgraded this computer to Sierra or High Sierra? Can you tell me if you are using the default BIOS or you have installed a modded one? Maybe better, what BIOS version are you using?

Next tuesday I will buy a computer like yours, and I need to know how you do this: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470                      (Blocked by BIOS).


The default bios let you doing this?

Thank you very much.

      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
      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.

      WARNING: thread history follows: (cloned from post HERE)
      RehabMan has been hard at work and has created a much better, more reliable method for both current and possibly future OS X installs. His new method, named the "hotpatch" method is far superior to our old ones and should rightfully take its place. Following is a direct link to his detailed and extensive guide to assist both current and future users with their adventures in OS X. Should you find success using his method, please remember to say THANKS for his work and to possibly add to his growing repository to hopefully assist future users in their own success stories. If you are looking to try on the very bleeding edge, then this is where you want to be.

      RehabMan "hotpatch" guide
      README: The following files were created using very basic testing to ensure very basic functionality. I cannot possibly foresee or test for every possible setup scenario, so I don't even try to. There may be unforeseen problems or issues that I was unable to expect or resolve. Please try to keep this in mind should you decide to try them out. Hopefully, someone finds them useful. I cannot and do not speak for Andrw0308's specific support files.
