Perfect MacBookPro 14,2 on HP Envy 13-ad010nr Ultrabook

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

always want to have a long lasting battery ultrabook to install Mojave on. I was looking at Dell XPS 13 but its design is not very good with the camera and other problems. HP Spectre x360 is a nice design but the wifi module is soldered on board. The Envy 13" is the best one in the bunch for MacOS Mojave. I would not use any other macOS besides Mojave, it's the best one so far. If you can't get it done with macOS Mojave, you don't do it correctly, it's much more refined and given than older macOS's.

I wanted the 8th generation because of the 4 cores which is almost 1.5 times faster than this 7th generation i7-7500u, but the price is too high. I picked up this one on Craigslist for $400. I've just ordered the 500GB NVME WD Black for $104 and DW1560 for $29. So, the perfect MacBook Pro 14,2 is less than $600 that last 5-6 hours with Mojave and 8-9 hours on Windows 10. The bench mark is the same as the real MacBookPro 14,2. BTW, this is the first try, there will be on going testing and confirming. 250GB hard drive is hardly enough for dual boot Windows and Mac. You need at least 500GB, I don't use Windows at all, so I'll partition 200GB for Windows and 300GB for Mojave.

All new HP laptops will have kernel panic if using Clover to boot UEFI, at least a fix was found. I'll have more videos and info when I have time to write them. Watch the videos and ask questions if you have any problems.

1. Clover 4558 - Lilu.kext (1.3.3) - AppleALC.kext (1.3.1) - Whatevergreen.kext (1.2.3) - USBInjectAll.kext (0.6.5) - Fakesmc.kext (6.25-332-gf3a8525c.1758) - ACPIBatteryManager.kext (1.81.4) - AHCIPortInjector.kext - BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext (2.2.7) - BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (2.2.7) - CodecCommander.kext (2.6.2) - FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext (1.3.9) - FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext (1.3.9) - FakePCIID.kext (1.3.9) - SSDT-AUIC-ALL.aml - SSDT-USBX.aml - SSDT-PNLF.aml - SSDT-PluginType1.aml - PreLoader.efi.

2. For the keys F2 & F3 to work with backlight slider - the Fakesmc.kext version is important for some reasons, I'm still trying to find out why.

The touchscreen actually works without the voodooI2C kexts, just need to patch the clover.

 

I've been playing with the laptop for over a week now. Ordered the WD 500GB WDS500G2X0C from Amazon for $104, the 256GB is too small for dual booting Windows 10 & Mojave. It's really plug and play.

 

Hardware - needed to make this a perfect macbook Pro14,2.

1. DW1560 BCM94352Z - make sure it has 2 notches - Tape the 2 right pins on the 4 pins tab for it to work without a hitch on both Windows 10 and Mojave. You can buy from Ebay cheaper but you have to wait for months.

2. 500GB NVMe SSD m.2 connector M is a must for dual boot - the cheaper one will be slower - Crucial NVMe 500GB is $25 less than WD.

3. NOVOO USB-C to HDMI hub that works and inexpensive.

 

Let's start to get this Kaby Lake working on the HP - I believe HP has the same components for similar configuration on different models. In order to get Mojave to work on Intel Laptop, we need a few important components - Sound is important (look for Realtek - ALC295) - Ethernet if any -Realtek - Trackpad  and TouchScreen (Synaptics or Elan).

 

REPLACE VNMe SSD HARD DRIVE and DW1560 BCM94352Z

 

The current BIOS is F22, the newest one is F27 but I don't want to update since it's working well. Since I don't really need the original Windows 10 with Junk software in it, I install the latest Windows 10 using Media Creation USB Boot Drive. The important thing is we have to prepare the SSD correctly or our EFI folder will only be set at 100MB which is not enough to install Clover or any other boot loaders. So instead of letting the Windows installer to create the EFI folder automatically, we can set the size ourselves using "diskpart" command. In order to use diskpart, we need to boot with Windows 10 USB installer (hit F9 then select UEFI USB installer) - select system repair and not installation - then select command prompt, from here we can create EFI folder and MSR for Windows installer to install. The product ID is already in the UEFI bios, so we don't really have to manually activate the Windows 10.

diskpart
select disk 0
clean
convert gpt
create partition efi=300 !!! you can change it from 300MB to any size.
format quick fs=fat32 label="EFI"
create partition msr size=16
exit


After exit, reboot with the USB installer again in UEFI mode, select the custom. The Windows installer will select the 300MB EFI folder we've just created.

      Hello, insanely kind people! 
      I had full working Speedstep on my system with El Capitan, but after installing Mojave i cant make it working again!
      Help me please. Actually system is working only with NullCPUPowerManagement.kext. As soon as i remove it from Extensions directory i've got kernel panic at the boot.
      I tried to put SSDT.aml from my previous ElCapitan clover, tried to make new by different utilities, but still no luck.

      My system is:
      Pentium G3258
      Asus Z97-K USB 3.1
      Nvidia GTX 670


      i''m attaching my new clover.plist of Mojave and old El Capitan one, which makes Speedstep fully working and overclocking my little Pentium from 3.2 to 4.5GHz. Now i see huge speed loss without SpeedStep on Mojave  Please help, anybody! Also im attaching my working SSDT.aml from El Capitan.
      El Capitan SSDT.aml
      El Capitan config.plist
      Mojave config.plist

      Hi, is Qualcomm Atheros AR956x compatible with MacOS Mojave 10.14.3?
    • By SIGNALSOUT
      Hello,
      I don't have access to another Mac, so I downloaded the following files:
       
      InstallESDDmg.pkg
      InstallAssistantAuto.dmg
      RecoveryHDMetaDmg.pkg
       
      Build is 10.14.3
       
      These were direct downloads from Apple Servers. If I extract them all I can build a Install macOS Mojave.app from them. I have tried various things in order to get the Mojave Patcher to accept the .app but I cannot get it to boot. The USB key it creates doesn't look proper as some of the files end up on the root of the disk, such as Base. and when it's finished flashing it changes the usb key's name to OS X Base.
       
      Could someone be of assistance and provide me with a tree print out of the file structure for Install macOS Mojave.app please?
      Thank you,
      Nate
