    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    Oh cool thanks, I'll have a look and see if it does anything.

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    I don't think it did actually, come to think of it. I've been trying to use two computers on the one screen so I think I was used to it acting up and didn't notice. Nope, haven't tweaked anything, just ran it straight out of the box. Interestingly, the Quadro is almost unusable using Adobe apps...

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    Just an FYI - I updated to 10.15.3 and found that the Quadro K600 won't accept any signal until the OS is loaded - so effectively the login screen. I've had to go back to the GT710 which can see the BIOS immediately. It can't do 4K unfortunately, yet is definitely a lot faster in general use. Sigh.

    Are you plugging the USB stick into a USB2 port? Icon is SS so I'm assuming USB3? You've got multiple disks showing with MacOS and recovery so I'm assuming you've got an old system already installed? It's best to do a clean install of the OS. You may be erasing once in the installer of course...

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    A friend paid for some work with a monitor so getting something that's budget and works is good, plus LP AMD options are unobtainium in Aus. Wow, so much detail, the Mojave sand dunes are simply stunning! With the kexts, I did a whole bunch of stuff at the same time like learning and fixing my...

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    I'll have a play this week sometime. I don't have anything in /L/E so it'll be updating and moving other bits. Thanks gents! – – – Also happy that a Nvidia Quadro K600 works OOB in Catalina, and runs a 4K display quite happily so far. Usage for general browsing, basic graphics is good, maybe...

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    Awesome work, looking forward to having a play whenever it happens! It certainly has been! I think it has a good level of technical knowledge required though, trying to sort out my EFI folders forced me to do some more learning and get my head around the basics. The multibeast and UEFI guides...

    Feature request: Moderator notes in profile area

    Hey there, this is probably more for new people to the site, but I was thinking it'd be great to have an area in your profile that moderators can leave a note when taking action on your content or account. For context, when a moderator updates my signature to remove the Wifi card spec I used in...

    I've got to say again a big thanks to you both, you have both built a great little eco-system and made the entry to hackintoshing fun and accessible. The time you guys put into continuing dialogue with people, and the updates of course, is commendable. Audio question: I don't use either as I...

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    lol, cheers for the vote of confidence and reality check! You're a bad influence TRS lol. I started looking at barebone versions on eBay and it's a slippery slope. I then went on to barebone 8300 chassis to update the 6300 to an 8300, then I realised I was falling into the trap. In other...

    There was an issue? lol, I just updated with nothing more than an up-to-date backup. Lots of soft reboots on mine but it went fine. I’m such a crap hackintosher lol

    Wow, I haven’t looked for BIOS updates for yonks, I had no idea there were 2019 releases lol

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    Just completed a simple update (10.15 to 10.15.2) after checking the latest backup. No updates to kexts or Clover. All good so far, lots of rebooting/soft reboots though, probably half a dozen.

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    Quick thought, did you try doing each update in order of release? So each one sequentially and not jumping straight to 2.99?

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    This thread looks at a few different options. Looks like 2.99 was a bit of a PITA for some when it came out! https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Boot-and-Lockup/Unable-to-access-Bios/td-p/6287928

    If Windows boots fine, why not use the HP updater in Windows?

    The S is hardware supported, doesn’t mention K. I’ve heard the 3570k works but at stock speed - it isn’t listed as hardware supported. The 3770s is a drop in speed, so if you can get the 3770 I’d personally just go that.

    The install does go through multiple restarts and I have had to tell it where to boot from in clover multiple times. For example, boot from install usb. There’s been plenty of warnings about using usb3, I’ve only used the front usb2 ports. Suggest you try again using them if the boot selection...
