Try posting in the Laptop Forum - http://www.tonymacx86.com/laptops/

I have seen several T420 titled posts there.

Please provide complete details in your profile.

System: manufacturer/model
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
System: HP ProBook 4540s
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx). For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

The nvidia is worthless as you can't use it in OS X. Try to find a model without it unless you need it in Windows.

Are you buying this machine used, or do you already own it?

The ProBooks, because of the ProBook Installer are much easier to install than any other laptop...

No. The ProBook Installer is only for select HP ProBook laptops.

If you have a ProBook, follow one of the guides in the ProBook forum(s).
