    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    I got it working. In a way... If I do not press Fn+F4 at boot for the external display to show the HP logo + boot process, it works. The screen stays black, until the logonscreen appears. Then the screen wakes up and everything works. If I press Fn+F4 at boot the screen goes to sleep when the...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    OK! So my replacement cpu has arrived. I have installed it and checked in BIOS that it really is an i3 2.3GHz this time. I have tried this: I have been running Mountain Lion, booting from the installer USB since I gave up. I have not run any ProBook Installer on that. Today I ran the PBI with...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    The external monitor is connected with hdmi. The internal lcd is completely broken and does not show anything. I plan to use it as a desktop. I have given up, reinstalled Mountain Lion and am currently booting with the installer usb with -x. It works for now. I have ordered a replacement cpu...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    I did what I said a couple of posts up. Replaced my ssdt.aml with the edited one. Something has changed, but it still doesn't boot. Now the screen doesn't go black anymore. When I boot the grey screen with the spinning wheel just stops. Nothing happens. If I boot -v it stops with a line saying...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    OK. Thanks! I haven't got the slightest idea how to do the edit to DSDT myself... Edit: I think I might have found it: Do you mean changing this: Method (_SB.PCI0.GFX0._DSM, 4, NotSerialized) to this: Method (_SB.PCI0.IGPU._DSM, 4, NotSerialized) in ssdt.aml?

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    Yes, my lcd is broken so I am running with external monitor connected with hdmi. I am also using external keyboard and mouse. Here is my /Extra folder: https://www.dropbox.com/s/t1eit3y2ucdscwv/Extra.zip?dl=0 I really appreciate your help on this. I do not know what application to use to edit...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    Ran PBI, did not select graphic type from dsdt, PBI completed. Downloaded Mini-SSDT-DisableGraphics.aml, renamed to ssdt.aml and copied to /Extra/ssdt.aml. Rebooted Booted from Macintosh HD, when the screen should turn grey, with arrow and then login window, the screen turns black and the...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    Thanks again! Forgive me for all the stupid questions, but the sequence now will be: Run PBI with all the recommended settings, leave SSDT unchecked? Copy your file as you instructed? But I do not understand this: "Make sure you DO NOT patch DSDT with the graphics inject _DSM." Since I do...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    OK, thanks! But how do I overcome the HD Graphics not supported issue? I have read other posts and guides, and some removes all the intel HD kexts in /S/L/E. Will that help?

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    OK. I have now reinstalled Mountain Lion. It installed fine (with -x at boot). Now I can boot it from the installer usbkey, choose my Mountain Lion HD and boot from that. As long as I boot with -x I get to the desktop and actually have a working system. Have tested filesharing and...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    OK. Since the lcd is already broken, I think I'll retire this laptop. But one last question about graphics. Since I can install Mountain Lion, boot it from usb with -x and get to the desktop with most things working, even networking, how is it that it's not possible to boot it and use it...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    Ahh.... The laptop has the Intel Core i3 sticker on it... CPU-Z in Windows says it's Ivy Bridge. Is the B950 also Ivy bridge? Is there no OS X version that can run on this? I do not need graphic acceleration. It is supposed to be an iTunes file server plus print server for the rest of my macs...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    OK, here are the files. A little unsure about the EFI folder. I grabbed the files from /Volumes/EFI. Since the Probook Installer never finishes, I never got CC installed. I see now that this perhaps belongs to another thread, but this is what I did (I have started from scratch). 1. Installed...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    Closer and closer :thumbup: Now I can run through the setupwizard and I can run the probook installer. I selected all the options from the guide for my model and it starts to install. The progress bar runs almost all the way through, and right before the end it fails. It says "Installation...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    I am running with both usb keyboard and mouse. I dont't understand, isn't the probook installer supposed to do it's thing after I reach the desktop? I never get to desktop, so I never get to run probook installer. I have made an installation usbkey with unibeast for mavericks and mountain lion...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    That was it! My lcd on the laptop is broken, so I have to use an external monitor. I have borrowed an hdmi-monitor for this experiment. I have gotten quite a bit longer, but still no cigar. I managed to run through the installer, rebooted and booted off the usbkey. Selected my freshly...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    I don't have an hdmi monitor. I have tried with a vga-monitor with the same result. I have left the Mountain Lion install on with the ethernet line until the computer switched off by itself. When I boot the Yosemite installer the fan stops after a while and the light on the usb-key shuts down...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    Here are the screenshots. Picture one is from Mountain Lion made with unibeast. The ML installer is my own, downloaded from the App Store. I see som messages about read error, but I have used two other usb-sticks, and they both show the same. Don't know what to make of it...

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    BIOS reset and options set as they are supposed to. Have tried moving the usb around and have also tried another. Mountain Lion stops with an ethernet line when booting verbose. Yosemite with Clover stops with: fatal unsupported chip ITE sequence ID=0x701 Winbond sequence ID=0xffff For...
