Try this EFI.  It is similar to your model.  HP requires lapic be enabled in open core.


Use latest versions of VirtualSMC, Lilu, WhateverGreen and the corresponding VirtualSMC plugins SMCProcessor.kext and SMCSuperIO.kext.  Start with a minimum of kexts and drivers and disable any you are not using from their respective configs within the config.plist.  Your model may also require ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext for Open Core 0.6.0 or higher.  


This EFI is for Intel 520 graphics.  You can modify for 620 using ProperTree which you can download from github.  You will need to supply your own PlatformInfo/SMBIOS.
