    HP ProBook Installer 6.1: 4x30s and 4x40s support

    HP ProBook Installer 6.1 (beta): Ivy bridge support I remember early/late model being dependant on the serial number. Perhaps random generator is destroying that relation. It should be easy to test tough, using known working serials.

    4540S LCD Screen (1080p replacement)

    Yes, 4530S guide is still relevant. The hardest part is removing top cover, laying down the cable and making sure nothing is pinched. I've got B156HW01 .V4 matte but some prefer .V7 which is glossy. http://www.panelook.cn/B156HW01%20V4_AUO_15.6_LCM_overview_686.html...

    HP Probook 6470b

    Out of curiosity, do you any difference in system logs when patching 11d4198b vs. 11d41984 (sound assertions and ambient noise reduction)?

    Multi Boot 4x30s + 10.8.x + windows 7/8 + ubuntu

    When creating ext4 partition in Ubuntu, make sure boot record gets installed into /dev/sda3 or whatever your Linux is, not MBR /dev/sda

    plus extra layouts from Info.plist from AppleHDA.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext and platforms from Platforms.xml. rather cosmetic changes to reduce file size.

    Thanks, we'll be waiting. I've got 4540S with 1080p but ... it is thousands miles away :-( My primary desktop is P4 3.0GHz for now.

    Pretty much, 111D76D1 can be safely used as an example.

    10.8.4 Update available. What does/doesn't work?

    Thanks ! The script can be modified to include codec for 4540S I would go with vanilla but some files have often "hidden" flag disabled after "modding"

    Just finished a fresh install on new 4540s and have a couple questions... When you first boot the laptop press F1 to display System Information, look at the bottom for line called WLAN FCC ID or open the back cover and physically look at the mini PCIe card. Google the numbers.

    Trouble booting installer 10.8.0 with ProBook 4440s

    Perhaps manually patching the kext will be less time consuming in this case rather than new DSDT? http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/53925-qe-ci-hd3000-series-7-mainboards.html I'm pretty sure I tried everything on 4540S with SandyBridge CPU including safe mode attemps and tricks to load it...

    Trouble booting installer 10.8.0 with ProBook 4440s

    It was frustrating experience for me as well when I put Sandy Bridge CPU on my 4540S. It never loaded the graphics. I had to put the Ivy CPU back and create DSDT with IMEI patch. Sorry don't remember more details.
