:crazy: Rehabman! Help ! or anyone who can! I'm new to this and did my research before buying the pro book 4530s i3. After spending a few hours trying to correctly install 10.8.5 - I had some trouble with the pro book installer. Turns out that it will fail either on incorrectly choosing the option for Dsdt or AHCI etc… After a few experiments and seeing that there were indeed successful installations, I STILL didn't have a correct OS working, I don't think. For example, my bottom dock wouldn't expand while mousing over it.
I searched exhaustively and everything is pretty mudded with information. Can you please help me understand what I'm not doing correctly or whats going on with my system? It seems like it wants to install correctly but i'm sure I don't really know what I'm doing. Tutorials on you tube are few and not detailed when it comes to multi beast and pro book installer. I'm confused between both tools. WHich one should i use???

Use the latest ProBook Installer: 6.1.13r3.

If necessary, do EC reset after installing. Power down, remove all power sources, hold power button 30 sec, put everything back & restart.

Make sure you follow the guide exactly...

Is there any guide for Clover installing on HP 4540s ? I've seen "Probook Installer Clover Edition", but Mountain Lion is not supported. I had to use regular version with Chameleon. Any suggestions ?

The Mavericks/Yosemite PBI-CE will probably work for ML as well. The creation of the USB is slightly different, as 'createinstallmedia' does not exist in the ML package. Use '2b' or read here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-...oting-os-x-installer-laptops-clover-uefi.html

Please do not write duplicate posts. Thanks. Rules: http://www.tonymacx86.com/faq.php

I already have ML installed. But bootloader is Chameleon. I don't need to create USB. I just want to replace Cham with Clover
