    Couple of things I'm still working out, could use some help:

    So I'm just circling back with some updates and a couple of new questions. I'm a teacher in a school district that is working in a hybrid model + I have some remote students as well so I have not been able to give this as much attention as I would have liked, and it's working well enough that I...

    Building a new rig with older parts. Questions about OS and WIFI.

    Ahhhhh, good point. Gotcha, I will have to do some reading in the High Sierra section. Ordering the YOUBO now. Thanks again.

    Building a new rig with older parts. Questions about OS and WIFI.

    Thank you, so I would need an additional graphics card for High Sierra?

    Building a new rig with older parts. Questions about OS and WIFI.

    Hey All, It's been a while since I've been on. Successfully built a Snow Leopard hackintosh for audio work back in 2013 that is still going strong, as well as a functioning Snow Leopard Probook 4530s in 2014, which I later upgraded to Lion in 2016/17 and added the correct WIFI card to-Also...

    How to attach SSD hard drive for cloning?

    Hello, Do I need to install a caddy in place of the optical drive in order to clone my dying hard drive? I know there are USB enclosures as well but I'm guessing via SATA cable would be better. I potentially might want to expand to a second regular drive for storage as my SSD is only 240GB...

    Received SMART hard disk error (301), what's next?

    Hi folks, My dog accidentally knocked the laptop off the couch a few days ago while it was on. When I went to use it the next day, everything seemed a little bit slower, and I was getting freezes and spinning beach balls. Without thinking I ran Disk repair from Disk Utility, not remembering I...

    Correct WIFI card installed but having issues

    Thanks, I did do my research, and purchased this card based on the part # 593127-001. The seller lists it as an official HP part on Amazon. Is there something in the images that gives away its status as a Dell part? I've already initiated a return, but I will add this to my comments to him...

    Correct WIFI card installed but having issues

    Can I use one of the above laptops with a different wifi card than the Atheros 9285? Yes. However, it is not supported (your WiFi will not work). It is recommended that you replace your card with an Atheros 9285 card compatible with the Probook. Note that the HP BIOS implements a "whitelist" so...

    Correct WIFI card installed but having issues

    You had said profile, so I added it, now you're saying signature? It won't be visible because the majority of my profile is filled in with the hardware for my Snow Leopard workstation. I'm not going to get into Clover when my machine is functioning just fine aside from WIFI. I know for a fact...

    Correct WIFI card installed but having issues

    I went in and added the Probook 4530s to my profile. Probook Installer is no longer in use, but because I used Unibeast and not Clover that is what I'm working with. This is all I can gather from the FAQ section as it relates to me and this problem: "For AR9285/AR9287, you can also use...

    Correct WIFI card installed but having issues

    So I finally got around to attempting to get working WIFI on this laptop, but I'm having some bizarre issues. Some seem linked to other threads I've read, and I've tried those workarounds to no avail. The one difference I'm experiencing is that I've randomly been able to get it working a...

    Issues after Unibeast and Probook Installer

    Thanks RehabMan! I knew a message like that was coming. Haha. I guess I'm just as stubborn as you though. I know if I ever go the Clover Hotpatch route though, you'll be the source of knowledge. After running those flags everything is back to normal and Lion is working as it should. I...

    Issues after Unibeast and Probook Installer

    So I did some more reading and it would appear that "A delay/hang at IOAPIC is generally caused by using a patched DSDT that doesn't correspond to your native DSDT." So what happened here? Is there a bootflag I can use to at least get on and fix this? Ok, tried DSDT=NO and -x together and...

    Issues after Unibeast and Probook Installer

    Does anyone know of a boot flag I could try? Or a fix through terminal commands? Thanks.

    Issues after Unibeast and Probook Installer

    Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Seems that this method is no longer supported and frowned upon but I'm at a loss as to what to do next. I've spent the last 4-5 hours trying different things and now it seems I've gotten myself deeper in the hole. Unibeast successfully went...

    Lion bootable USB space after Unibeast?

    I never did get the Atheros AR5B195 card for a working WIFI on this laptop. Do I need to have working WIFI to use this Clover method or can I use the ethernet port?
