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
SD Card reader
Video - screen looks better in OS X then it does in Windows 10
WiFi and BlueTooth working OOO using the below hack
Battery status with Rehabman's DSDT patch
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
Ethernet - using IntelMausiEthernet
Sleep - kind of, closing the lid doesn't go to sleep but goes to sleep over time.
This laptop does not have a Webcam - enterprise model.
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.
I am new to this hackintosh world (about 1 week now) and I am very impressed with the sort of results it has yielded in my workflow. I use my laptop for guitar DSP and recording audio and have been able to come up with a good enough mackintosh build for it (using High Sierra 10.13.1 now).
For the past one week I have been trying to get rid of an annoying popup "your computer was. restarted because of an error". If you take a look at the error report you shall notice Darwin 18.0.0 as being mentioned, which I presume is Mojave.
What I had done is install 10.13.1 -> 10.13.3 -> 10.13.5 -> 10.14 Beta, where the 10.14 Beta failed and since then the error started popping up. After that I have reinstalled 10.13.1 multiple times, installed it to a different hard disk, used 'shred' from a linux live session on my laptops HDD and installed and still that error message won't go away.
Everything functions fine, the error message is just annoying. If someone can help me get rid of it, it would just make the hackontish build cooler.
My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips.
Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows.
I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball.
I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button).
I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same.
I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent.
I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail.
Ho installato da tempo High Sierra su un disco SDD separato, mentre su un'altro SSD c'è Windows 10 e su di un al'tro disco Linux-Ubuntu.
Purtroppo non so come e perché, ma sicuramente per qualcosa che ho fatto, ma che non ricordo, all'avvio del PC, quando premo il tasto F12 per selezionare il sistema operativo da avviare, mi compare ancora OSX, ma Clover putroppo non si avvia (si vede il messaggio Faild to open \EFI\BOOT\grubx64.efi - Not Found ecc... start_image() returned Not Found).
E' possibile riavviare High-Sierra già installato (partizione APFS), in un qualche modo?
