Based on the feedback of Probook 4x0 G1 thread, I created a guide to suit my Clover guide, while waiting for new Probook Installer to support it. Be caution that this is only temporary guide, cause I don't have that laptop.

1. Step 1 to 10 in http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook-mavericks/112383-guide-install-mavericks-clover-bootloader.html

2. Clover bootloader screen shows up, press F4 (to dump DSDT, SSDT...), then select "Boot OS X from YourPartition".

3. If everything goes well, you will boot straight to desktop. Download HP Probook Installer here http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook...s-support.html and install with ONLY these options:

OS X support kexts: 4x0s G0 support kexts
Optional hardware-specific fixes:
- EDID generator: Inject correct display EDID to your system.
Misc OS X fixes:
- Color profiles: Recommended.
- Sleep fix: disables OS X version of "hybrid sleep" where upon entering sleep, a "hibernation image" is written to the boot drive. Required for Clover bootloader.
Extra tools: All optional. Select the ones you want.

4. Download latest Clover here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/clov...les/Installer/ Run the installer with Customized options:
Install for UEFI booting only
Themes: Choose your desired themes
Drivers64UEFI:
- EmuVariableUefi-64
- OsxAptioFixDrv-64
Install RC scripts on target volume
Install Clover Preference Pane


5. Go to /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin/ (of your Clover USB) , copy all DSDT.aml and SSDT*.aml to DSDT folder on desktop. Download latest iasl here, copy iasl into the same folder. Open terminal and type this:
Code:
cd ~/Desktop/DSDT/
./iasl -da *.aml
6. Download MacIASL, go to Preferences > Sources, add those respority to MacIASL:
HP Probook: http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch/master
Laptop patches: http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/master

Then use MacIASL to open DSDT.dsl from DSDT folder in desktop, click Patch and select these patches, click apply for each:

[1.2] Probook 4x40s IvyBridge
[3.3] Fan and Temps (reading only)
[2.05] Haswell HD4400/HD4600/HD5000
[2.11] Brightness fix (Haswell)

Paste this extra fix and apply:
Code:
[COLOR=#000000]into definitionblock code_regex External\s+\(_SB_\.ISCT\) remove_matched;[/COLOR]
Change your DSDT header as follows
From: DefinitionBlock ("dsdt.aml", "DSDT", 2, "HPQOEM", "1942 ", 0x00000001)
To: DefinitionBlock ("dsdt.aml", "DSDT", 2, "HPQOEM", "179C ", 0x00000001)

Click Compile to check if there is no error, save the file with format ACPI Machine Language Binary to /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/DSDT.aml (of EFI Partition).

7. Open terminal, run the following commands to create ssdt.aml
Code:
curl -o ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.github.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/master/ssdtPRGen.sh
chmod +x ssdtPRGen.sh
./ssdtPRGen.sh    (Press n twice)
Copy SSDT.aml on desktop to /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/ (of EFI Partition).

8. [FOR AMD GRAPHICS ONLY] Use MacIASL to open ssdt-6.dsl (You can see "AMDSGTBL" in Definition Block), click Patch and select
[5.1] Call _OFF from _INI

Apply, click Compile to check if there is no error, save the file with format ACPI Machine Language Binary to /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/SSDT-1.aml (of EFI Partition).

9. [FOR AMD GRAPHICS ONLY] Copy SSDT5.aml (You can see "SaSSDT" in Definition Block) in ~/Desktop/DSDT/ to /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/ (of EFI Partition), rename it to SSDT-2.aml.


10. Copy config.plist from USB to /EFI/Clover/ (of EFI Partition).
Copy HFSPlus.efi in /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ from your USB to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ in EFI partition, remove VBoxHfs-64.efi

11. Use Clover Configurator here: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/49-clover-configurator/ to edit some values in your config.plist:
- ACPI > GeneratePStates/CStates: uncheck
- Gui > Theme: set your theme name
- SMBIOS: create your new SMBIOS with random Serial Number

12. Recheck if config.plist, dsdt.aml, ssdt.aml, ssdt-1.aml, ssdt-2.aml are placed correctly in EFI partition of internal drive.

13. Restart, you should see Clover screen and option to boot to Mavericks. Enjoy!

TO CHANGE YOUR SMBIOS TO MACBOOK PRO
By default, my config.plist uses MacBookAir 6,1 as SMBIOS because it's supported since 10.9.0, if you want to change to MacBook Pro, make sure you update to 10.9.2 and use Clover Configurator to generate a MacBook Pro 11,1 or 11,2 SMBIOS.

Sorry, I missed one extra error fix, please recheck in post 1.
[1.2] Probook 4x40s IvyBridge includes most of the fixes that can be applied to Probook G1 without causing syntax errors. It includes the patch for Clover to recognize our keyboard, remove useless WMI and etc, they are fine tuned for HP probook by RehabMan.

done. can't use clover configurator cause its need internet connection for install, have no internet on 450g1. waiting for wifi card. computer loading, and working. sleep after ~10 sek works. tochpad works. tochpad on\off works. multiguestes works (3 touch, it catch like command+ctrl+up or down). fn keys some works, but didn't do full test. for example on 450g1 fn+f8 disable micro and led on, but nothing. volume on\off button works, but led not sync with push. i mean when it off it must led orange and when it on it must led white, but it not works properly. sound works. camera works. numlock button not working (but on 4530s its not working too) its always on (led off). cd-rom opens. caps lock works. more complex tests will try tomorrow. for now must go. thx.

btw i really pay attention on [1.2] Probook 4x40s IvyBridge
i think that unnessasery things must be off. more native more stable.

Normal. Fn+F8 disables touchpad, does it work with you?

In system preferences > Keyboard, do you see "Use all F1, F2..."?
Please check again all Fn key, so that Rehabman can add your profile to next version of Voodoo (without renaming dsdt header).

I examine that dsdt patch and do not find anything unnecessary, and OEM dsdt is not always "native".

WOW, that's more detail then I expected. So the keyboard layout has some changes, you need to change dsdt header to original, then create a keyboard layout that suits your computer (and your liking) most.

What do you mean by "mb it has some unnecessary kexts loaded"?

So in the end, the remaining problems are:
Keyboard layout - Need you to manually remap
HDMI Port - Need a patch for HD4400/4600 mobile
VGA port - Look like never work, can use HDMI-VGA adapter like HD4000

To check speedstep, use AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext

i have found 2 topic on 450 g1:
http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook-mavericks/120907-buying-advice-hp-probook-450-ivy-bridge-haswell.html
and
http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook-mavericks/122233-hp-probook-450-g1-osx-mavericks-installation-guide.html
plus u topic about clover
http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook-mavericks/112383-guide-install-mavericks-clover-bootloader.html
where smth like this:
"14. (Optional) Restore vanilla AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, AppleRTC.kext (they're backed up in desktop) by using Kext Wizard."
or
"You could try with and without GenericUSBXHCI (eg. remove GenericUSBXHCI, and you'll then be using the apple kext, AppleUSBXHCI)."

Keyboard layout - Need you to manually remap
its only one symbol..)

Please check again all Fn key, so that Rehabman can add your profile to next version of Voodoo (without renaming dsdt header).
RehabMan are u here?) Plz

HDMI Port - Need a patch for HD4400/4600 mobile
can i some how reanimate hdmi, or must wait?

VGA port - Look like never work, can use HDMI-VGA adapter like HD4000
on 4530s with hd 3000 it works

To check speedstep, use AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext
ok

witch tests must do more? mean, i didn't know about speedstep before saw it here. mb some other
technology witch not see, but must be audited.

can i some how repair:
speakers - work (level 1-4 near mute)
sound button - work, but (it live its own live, led not sync with push)
after restart/sleep if i want to change sound level it auto get max
