    [Guide] Install High Sierra on the HP 8300 Elite / 6300 Pro Desktop PC

    Crap. I guess I have HD2500 then. I have the i5 3470S. I am using the Ultra-Slim model. Can I get it working or do I need to use an 8300 tower that will take an external graphics card?

    [Guide] Install High Sierra on the HP 8300 Elite / 6300 Pro Desktop PC

    I believe I have some graphics issues. I know the 8300 I have has Intel HD Graphics 4000, but for some reason it shows up as HD Graphics 2500 in "About this Mac" after the first boot while installing kexts and running MultiBeast. After going through the entire installation process successfully...

    [Guide] Intel Kaby Lake NUC7 using Clover UEFI (NUC7i7BNH, NUC7i5BNK, NUC7i3BNH, etc)

    Thank you for the guidance. Attached is my CLOVER.zip folder and 2 images; the 1st is the last "update" to verbose mode and the 2nd is the progress bar/spinning circle where the NUC sits presently. You'll notice that the progress bar is not "full" and has a bluish color as an outline which I...

    [Guide] Intel Kaby Lake NUC7 using Clover UEFI (NUC7i7BNH, NUC7i5BNK, NUC7i3BNH, etc)

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, but I can't even boot into the Installer fully on my NUC7i3BNH. I get the progress bar and once it fills almost all the way up I get the spinning wheel and can move the mouse around, but that's as far as it goes. Even when I boot in verbose mode, it still...

    Lion Installer Hanging on 4530s

    OK so I found out that there was liquid (coffee) damage to the internals of the HP ProBook that I got used on eBay and I am sending it back. I guess I'll try again to get my Lenovo Edge E430 up and running again. Any help over in the new thread I will create within the next few days is greatly...

    Lion Installer Hanging on 4530s

    Yeah, I tried the 16GB just because I saw on here that other people were able to use 16. I have since bumped it back down to the original 4GB that it shipped with, and still no luck. This is definitely puzzling. I have re-made the USB, but I'm starting to think that maybe I should just download...

    Lion Installer Hanging on 4530s

    I am still unable to get booted into the Mac OS X Lion installer even after creating a new bootable USB drive over the weekend. Any other suggestions? I'm really puzzled as to why I can't even get the installer to work on a laptop of this model, which is supposed to be the most compatible model...

    Lion Installer Hanging on 4530s

    I don't know why the screenshot I attached didn't actually attach on the last post. It's attached now. I'll try connecting an external monitor now. I don't think it's a bad install USB because I was able to boot into it (with boot flags) and install successfully on my Lenovo Edge E430 laptop. (I...

    Lion Installer Hanging on 4530s

    According to the CPU-Z screenshot that is attached, it is, in fact a Core i3 2330M processor. Any other suggestions?

    Lion Installer Hanging on 4530s

    I am attaching another picture I took of the System Information from the BIOS. It shows a Core i3 2330M, but is it possible for that to display wrong for any reason, like if the previous owner put a different processor in it? Or did HP release some ProBooks with ES and QS CPUs? That would be...

    Lion Installer Hanging on 4530s

    The computer does not have Radeon and it does have the standard screen. I didn't think I had to use any boot flags on my last 4530s, but figured it was worth a try to get into the installer. If I recall correctly, the last 4530s had a 2310M processor, not a 2330M though. If I boot with no flags...

    Lion Installer Hanging on 4530s

    Hello all, I apologize if I am overlooking something silly, but I have yet to be able to get the Lion installer to load on my 4530s. I previously owned one and sold it, but missed it so badly that I purchased another used one on to hackintosh. I have reset the BIOS to default settings and...

    Mini-ITX Case Advice

    Hello all, I have the current setup listed in my signature, and am interested in doing one of two things, although option #1 is more attractive: 1. Move my existing hardware into a smaller case with minimal/no hacking. (I believe my mobo has onboard graphics, so I could nix the graphics...

    HP ProBook 4530s - Unable to upgrade to Lion

    Hello all, I recently purchased an HP ProBook 4530s open box item from Micro Center because I read that it is the best laptop to Hackintosh. I have installed Snow Leopard 10.6 and upgraded to 10.6.6 using the combo update (I get kernel panics when I try to upgrade to 10.6.8) and I have a Hack...
