I have HP 840 G2 too. But my trackpad can't work ? How fix, thank !

I don't know if my answer is relevant, but maybe it works for you on G2 , I had the same issue with G3 after I updated my PS2VOODOO kext to the latest version ..

maybe u need to update or downgrade Kext and it could work

Catalina update 10.15.4 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand and clover 5107

Catalina update 10.15.3 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand.

Catalina update 10.15.2 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand.

Catalina update 10.15.1 without issue although you may have to make sure clover boots from the right partition.

HP 840 G2/G3, working with OS X 10.15 Catalina, for this to work you will need the SSDT-ECUSBX.aml and place that  EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched. 

Make sure you remove Remove all patches about renaming acpi of EC or H_EC, revert all ACPI renaming in ACPI DSDT.

 

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 and set the config.plist

 

Not working

SD Card reader

Finger Print device

 

Working

Video - screen looks better in OS X then it does in Windows 10

Display port

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.

Web Cam, works but I covered it up.

Try this clover EFI folder, I made some improvements and updates, still based on CLOVER version 5107. I don't update CLOVER unless is addresses issues.

I am going to check it right now, thank you very much for your great work, I have been able to verify besides that error, is that my partition with High Sierra and EFI of Windows 10, has disappeared also in clover, it only shows cataline partition, preboot and recovery, how strange, it had never happened to me.

Thank you very much!

 

EDIT:

 

Now I can really get into the system and with absolutely everything working! Thank you very much.


Now the only thing missing, is that all the partitions can be seen again, High Sierra and EFI (Windows 10) so that everything is perfect :)

Hi guys!. I have the EliteBook 820 G2 (the one with i5-5300u and hd550, 1366x768 + webcam screen variant) and it's all working good so far. The main problem it's the suspension, it doesn't want work. Anyone that has it working? I tried to put "darkwake=no" in boot arguments and adjust settings in power management but nothing changed...

Thanks Donw35

 

I'm still learning OC 0.5.7 to first boot and install on this Laptop HP EliteBook 840G2 (i5, 5500) 

With your help, I now successfully can see the applefs partition from the USB key. The hint is to set UEFI/UnblockFsConnect to yes !!! (that's for HP laptop !). I spend more than 1 month for this parameter !

 

Now I encounter another issue.

I have had zero luck getting OC to work on my laptop, I think its the BIOS, Clover works fine. stops at the same place as yours, something to do with the drivers.

So today, I backup my "not working OC" project, and unzip your EFI_5107_04162020.zip

on my HP EliteBook 840G2 (i5-5300U CPU @ 2.30GHz, Intel HD Graphics 5500 (rev 09)

 

1. unzip your Clover5107 on my USB

2. modify Serial, Board Serial, SmUUID, UUID

3. try to boot, the system restart after screen 2

4. copy my DSDT.AML (extracted previously by liveLinuxUSB)

 

I attach the pic1 and pic2

 

What is the next step ?

- is my applefs not installed correctly ? I use gibMacOS-master

- my bios has a prob ? I put the latest version on (HP Notebook System BIOS, 01.30 Rev.A    15.1 MB    Nov 8, 2019)

- i misconfigured my BIOS (I followed all the indication), or may be I should copy all the option down.

- what is 71B4903C-14EC-42C4-BDC6-CE1449930E49 ? 

 

The last line in my error is in Clover5107 as well as in OC0.5.7 (71B4903C-14EC-42C4-BDC6-CE1449930E49)

Thanks for pointing me out. Linux Ubuntu 20.04 is runing perfectly well on this PC.

 

Thanks in advance,

Make sure you hit F11 at the clover boot loader to clear NVRAM, always need to do that when moving between OC and CLOVER

I was wondering if anyone has the LTE Modem in HP 840 G3 and managed to let it work on Mac 

Mac sees the modem as HP lt4120 Snapdragon X5 LTE, t I couldn't manage to connect with it.

Hi:

 

New in this forum. First of all, thanks to all contributors, is a great job.

 

I have a 840 G2, ATI graphics. I disabled the ATI on BIOS. I've done the wireless and bluetooth hack showed on the frst post and I have my wifi and bluetooth perfectly working, after replace my CLOVER EFI with the clover attached at the first post. Everything that can work is working correctly, but:

 

My WiFi - Bluetooth button is always orange, And I don't know why. Anyone can give me an idea to check what is wrong in my configuration?

 

Hibernation doesn't work very well. Sometimes works but after the first Hibernation cycle, the second fails, but no kernel panic at the moment.

 

Working on battery with Youtube videos running, I can work for 3 hours. Can I expect a much loger battery time?

 

Again, thanks a lot.

Hi all,

I have a HP 840 G3 i7, it was working fine with your EFI & Catalina 10.15.1.

I did a fresh install with Catalina 10.15.4, something goes wrong with the BIOS setting. Now I am unable to boot from SSD. I tried with 10.15.1 with several EFI with no luck. :-( 
Installation works fine, I am able to boot from USB and select SSD, but I couldn't get BIOS detects SSD as a Boot drive.

As a test I installed Win10, it worked fine. Also have replace SSD.

 

Do you have any guideline or advice about how to configure BIOS? (I used  versions N75 1.20 & N75 1.45)

Thank you.

Hi:

 

I don´t know if you have installed Catalina succesfully and your problem is at the first boot or if your problem is that you have not a success installing. Anyway, I send you my CLOVER EFI folder, may be the config.plist can help you. I had a problem on first install due to the ATI Graphics. Try to disable the Dual graphics on BIOS. The laptop will be use only the Intel Graphics.

      *****************************
      Due to the many problems with this forum (not searchable, Google no longer indexing it, slow load times...) I have started maintaining this thread in another forum.  Please Google "Catalina HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini" to find my other thread where my name there is deeveedee.  Thank you.
      *****************************
       
      This guide is a work in progress and will be updated as I refine the installation.
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks (Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m, Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m, Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600, Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580) are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.
       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec SMBIOS MacModel MacMini 8,1 Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi (currently disabled in BIOS).  I may replace this with Brcm, but am using only Ethernet (IntelMausi) for now.  
      Installation Steps: To be provided
      See attached EFI and /L/E kexts in EliteDesk.zip archive See installation methodology here See references here  
      What is not working
      Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (intentional since I have not yet replaced my Intel card).  
      What is not tested
      USB c 3.1 port Microphone port  
      What is working
      Everything not mentioned above Sleep / Wake Multiple displays with IGPU graphics acceleration, hot pluggable display ports and DP->DVI adapters USB 3.1 ports Audio (internal speaker and headphone jack) Ethernet Auto-sensing headphone jack automatically switches to internal speaker when headphones removed  
      Known Issues and their solutions
      (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Some USB devices were not recognized. My SSDT-UIAC.aml was incomplete and did not specify all required USB port types (missing SSxx ports). The attached EliteDesk.zip archive includes this fix. (Reported this as a possible Clover issue - no solution yet) Clover boot loader may default to Recovery volume after a normal shutdown.  Work-around is to select your normal macOS volume.  This may only happen when Clover is configured to boot LastBootedVolume and may be "fixable" by explicitly setting a boot volume (haven't tested this). (Watching this - not sure it's a problem) At least one display blanks (sleeps) when plugging / unplugging USB device (observed in front USB 3.1 ports).  Display wakes immediately on keyboard and mouse activity, so this is a minor issue but may be indicative of another issue. (No solution yet - work-around is to use Firefox) Safari has problems loading insanelymac web pages after sleep / wake.  Work-around: use Firefox or reboot.  I have seen reports in forums where Safari issues are experienced after sleep / wake on a real Mac.  Not sure if the problems are related.  I suspect that it might be related to streaming video on InsanelyMac pages (since I haven't observed the issue on "static" pages).
      Also observed video problem in AppStore after sleep/wake.  Console: VideoDecodersUnavailable  (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Display does not fully wake after resuming from sleep (needs an extra mouse or keyboard stimulus to fully wake).  Solution is to change boot arg darkwake=0 to darkwake=2.  Other values of darkwake may work as well, but this is the first I tried and it worked. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) -disablegfxfirmware boot arg is not required with WEG.  I inadvertently left this boot arg after I encountered an endless gfx firmware update boot loop while working on my FB patching.  This boot arg is no longer necessary after completing FB patching with WEG. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive): Sometimes, CMOS time is lost on shutdown or restart.  Solution is to enable Clover's Apple RTC fix in config.plist. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) headphone jack doesn't work.  Solution is to change HDEF layout-id to 28. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) System freezes on wake from sleep because of a kernel panic related to hda-gfx (my system does not have HDMI and my DP->DVI adapters do not drive monitor speakers).  Solution is to add No-hda-gfx property to HDEF as described here.  This property is recognized as a Lilu flag and prevents loading hda-gfx. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Device (PMCR) is not defined.  Solution is a SSDT that "injects" the missing device. (Solved and included in the attached archive) eficheck is loaded (not sure why this is bad, but may be a privacy issue - see here). Solution is to add updated EFICheckDisabler kext that include Q370 chipset.  See here.

      Hello,
       
      could you help me with Intel UHD 620 HDMI port?
       
      HP ProBook G6 440
      Intel Core i5-8265u
      Catalina 10.15.4

      I've installed Catalina 10.15.4
      But I can't get HDMI working
      When I connect HDMI cable I got freezes and errors as in file freezes.png (attached)

      [IGFB][INFO ] Setting DP power failed (0xe00002bc), ignoring empty dongle handling (likely HDMI/TMDS case)

      I also looked into IOregistryExplorer and see that the connect type is 00400000 there for FB@1
      I tried to patch it via setup.plist but it seems that there is no change in IOregistryExplorer.
      Though the Hackintool sees the change (image attached)

During the Corvid StayAtHome Period I was able and have time to make this laptop boot on MacOS after a lot of attemps before going back to job. It was the hardest laptop hackintosh install attemp i've done so far and Sierra OS is the only that works. I tried El Capitan and Mojave and its never boot so I not even tested Catalina. I searched on the web and theres no install guide for this specific laptop or no Success install post on this laptop its look like a not very well supported laptop by hackintosh. Maybe some of you can help me correct the things that still not work. Audio work but with voodo (low sound and low quality) I want to make it work with AppleALC to get better quality sound. Thanks in advance
       
      Things that work:
       
      -Touchscreen
      -Trackpad (not the gesture for now) - Backlight Keyboard

      -Brightness Controls with FN key
      -Sleep (half working) _ usb ports not work after wake from sleep.
       
      Things that not work or need to be fixed:
       
      -Weird double long booting screen-first loading bar on the right. after real loading bar is visible ?
      -Audio (Voodoo) work but with low volume sound- still not success to make work AppleALC.kext method
      -SENSORS -CPU-HDD Temperatures, BATTERY LEVEL, ETC…
