HP 840 G3 EliteBook ** WiFI and Bluetooth resolved** Big Sur / Catalina

115 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Upgrading Clover, here is what I do.. Mount the EFI partition and make sure to have copies of the /kexts and /drivers/UEFI  folders. after in the clover app under customize, make sure you have the same drivers selected that are in your /drivers/UEFI folder, clover sometimes removes them and doesn't re install unless you select them.

 

the USB Wifi is probably causing your sleep issues.

Thank you very for your reply, after many times of installing and fails and figured out the problem from your hint about Clover folders .. it seems that new versions of Clover is adding an individual Driver/UEFI folder with the drivers which classically are supposed to be in drivers64UEFI, the new Folder seems to have the exact drivers in the old one.

this seems to make system fails to boot I deleted the new folder and the system booted normally without any problem with the latest Clover 5070... well I wonder what is the difference with all those clover's versions ... tbh as a beginner maybe no idea I find them pretty much the same . 

I'm waiting my wifi Card and adapter to upgrade and see how this would affect sleeping behaviour without USB wifi btw does this device have a bios whitelist

Another question I have is regarding booting up ... do you also get delayed clover boot up screen and stuck with HP logo for couple of seconds ? or i'm the only one who suffers from this ?

I hackintoshed many HPs starting from HP 8440P and 4540s ,840 G1 they all boot very normal except this one .

it stucks at HP logo couple of Seconds and then needs also 3 seconds till clover scan all drivers and hdds then i boot normal 

I wonder if there is something to make this works smoothly .. 

i'm really grateful for your hint regarding Clover :D

Update: I do have Native Wifi and BT using the Method Hackintosh Geek mentioned, closing the laptop with this weird configuration wasn't really easy but it works and when its closed you don't care what inside ... it works perfectly thanks again ! 

 hope the Device would sleep easily now and doesn't wake up suddenly without any reason and the issue would be the usb wifi dongle !

This laptop does not have a Webcam - enterprise model.

if you see the camera "eye" in the display rand, you probably just need to switch it on in UEFI BIOS Settings. I have thw similar situation with my daughter's G1. It was bought from lease pool reseller and had not the cam according to sellers' specifications, but the call to HP Hotline reveals that the camera and Fingerprint are presented and could be reactivated in BIOS. The "normal" enterprise user does not have access to BIOS, so the features are not avialable.

HP 840 G2, 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 patch about renaming acpi of EC or H_EC,, revert all ACPI renaming in ACPI DSDT.

 

Happy Hackintosh

 

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.

I resolved the WiFi and Bluetooth issues by using a supported module 

 

BCM943224PCIEBT2 Card To NGFF(M.2) Key A/E Adapter from Amazon for $14

MacBook Air 13 A1369 11 A1370 WiFi Bluetooth Air Port Card from eBay $10

 

 I had to do some cutting on the A/E adapter but was able to get it to fit, its a lot taller but the case closes without problems. I rather like this hack as the WiFi and Bluetooth are needed services and OS support will increase over all performance and confidence.

I have elitebook 840 g3 too. I was wondering, does the wifi card you have replaced is working on Windows 10?

Thank you for efforts.

Regarding the G2 and Catalina, is the fan running normally?

 

I have a G2 that I upgraded using the App Store installer and it has pretty much gone well.  I have a compatible wifi/bluetooth card and with updated kext have got that running pretty good.  The only issue is that the fan is definitely working harder than on Mojave and the unit 'feels' warmer to work on (the palm rest on the right definitely is warmer).

 

I followed the tonymac guide to getting Mojave on this laptop.  I know, but I am still very much learning and needed a simple guide to get going with.

 

Just so I am clear (remember, I am learning!) - I can install Catalina using my MacMini to a SSD, install the latest version of Clover to that SSD and then copy your G3 Clover/EFI folder to it and it should be all ready to go? is the SSDT file needed for the G2 included or do I need to add that in?

 

Thanks for the great posts... my G2 is running really nicely as it is other than the fan and hear concerns and I am really interested in giving this a try.  I would prefer a fresh install to the upgrade that I have now... something I learnt from my Windows days!

I updated the clover folder in the 4th post with my most recent one, I haven't had any issues with the fan but there is a BIOS setting that you may want to verify that it set correctly

 

A clean install is always a good option. I am also using Kext Updater for maintenance and upkeep.

I haven't done it but you will have to contact HP and flash the bios using a CMOS.bin file.

For those that are interested, here is my clover stuff for the HP 840 G3

 

HP G2 800.zip

I have the same laptop

HP 840 G2 i5-5300u

I copied your Clover into my EFI partition without edit.

Unfortunately, Touchpad is not working, so I must use a USB Mouse.

Any idea? Thanks

 

NB: Mojave 10.14.6

If you want Mojave on this system, this is what I did.

 

Copied EFI folder to a thumb drive

took the SSD out of the laptop and installed Mojave from a real mac

installed clover and put the EFI folder from the thumb drive

reboot and done.

 

IMG_0043.jpeg

Where do you install the clover? Do you install clover while the SSD is still plugged in the real Mac?

 

By the way, thanks for providing instructions and sharing your files.

For imessages and facetime what method did you use to generate smmuid, mlb, rom, serial number, and board serial number?

 

I'm stuck at authentication. And get the :"You cannot sign into imessage at this time.To use iMessage with this Mac, contact Apple Support and provide the code below. "

Hey my man I’m sort of new to this but, Did you ever think of making a tutorial specifically on this laptop model? Would be dope if you could show us in real time how you set it all up prior install. 
 

I have the exact same laptop and trying to run Mojave on it.

 

i got it to install and all that good stuff but I really need help figuring out the kext files to get my touchpad and keyboard to work as well as sound. I do understand I will have to purchase a card for the WiFi to work but I’m going to order one as soon as I can. 
 

I guess my question here is how do you install the proper kext files?

@sands210 Your clover folder is jacked, go back to the one I posted. Using other clover folders doesn't always work, you have to tailor it for your system.

 

@iHemno, I will have a look on your folder and yes, I could put something together, I realized on my HP 840 G2 that the track pad doesn't work either so I guess I will be working on that.

 

Stay tuned

My HP 840G3 randomly appears on the Mojave when the keyboard and touchpad fail at the same time, and it is normal after restarting. What is the reason and how to solve it?

I had to use the Laptop so i formatted and went back to Mojave, the only problem annoys me with Mojave or let say with the laptop is sleeping mode, it works fine sometimes yet it doesn't always and worse when u take it in back and wake up .

it will be like hell warm and Hibernate no idea if its possible to activate ? 

any tips or solution for sleep or Hibernate thing , is Catalina better than Mojave with the 840 G3 ? 

this is my current Clover I deleted theme folder cause it was over 15 mb

      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 05/10/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update - 04/08/2020 - Use with Bios revision F12K (F12J Pro Wifi) Only or Replace with the older F11 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      Clover Z390 Pro Navi Vega EFI 040820.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT EFI
      Clover Z390 Pro Polaris EFI 040820.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) DSDT EFI
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
       
      Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.
       
      OpenCore EFI Update - 05/10/2020 (Big Sur Ready)
      Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.
       
       
      OpenCore 062 Z390 Pro 19,1 051020.zip  - OpenCore v0.6.2, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 062 Z390 Pro 1,1 051020.zip - OpenCore v0.6.2, SMBios iMacPro1,1 (IGPU Disabled)
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
      Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.0. Use the new Config.plist instead.
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)
       
      For OpenCore Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following 

       
      PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      PLEASE NOTE - Please flash your motherboard bios to revision F12K (F12J Pro Wifi) to use my current Clover EFI. It’s a major rework of the bios and vital changes have been made to the layout and power tables. New DSDTs have been created and installed into the new EFI’s but will not work correctly with any other bios revision.

      EFI FOLDERS  
      please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F11L or Higher to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision
      Z390AORUSMASTER.F11l.zip  - Aorus Z390 Master Bios Firmware F11L 
       
      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 05/10/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update v5120 - 04/08/2020 - Use with Bios revision F11L or Higher Only or Replace with the older F11c/F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      EFI Clover VEGA Navi 030820.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT SMBios 19,1 EFI
      EFI Clover Polaris NVIDIA 030820.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) SMBios 19,1 EFI
       
      Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
       
       
      OpenCore EFI Update v0.6.2 - 05/10/2020 (Big Sur Ready)
      Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.
       
      OpenCore 062 Z390 Master 19,1 051020.zip - OpenCore v0.6.2, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 062 Z390 Master 1,1 051020.zip - OpenCore v0.6.2, SMBios iMacPro1,1 (IGPU Disabled)
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
      Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.0 so please use the new Config.plist instead.
       
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)
       
      Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following 

       
      PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked so make sure you use the F11L Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      CFG Unlock (MSR) F11L BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 
      Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU
       
       
       
      To Create Your Own Patched DSDT Message @MaLd0n using the link bellow
      https://www.olarila.com/forum/17-dsdt-patch-requests/
      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the tedious steps or problems of other simlar apps.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install your bootloader of choiche on the usb (or just leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac).
       
      Features:
      - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process.
      - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers).
      - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly).
      - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too.
      - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal.
      - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code.
      - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk.
      - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you.
      - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool.
      - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update.
      - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer.
       
       (To sugegst a new feature please contact me on github)
       
      Requirements:
      - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer).
      - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer.
      - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

      **********************************************************************************
      In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.
      **********************************************************************************
       
      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 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      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 Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi.  A possible solution is here, but I am NOT offering any support for this.
