- HP ProBook 430 G6
- UHD 620, 1920x1080
- Mobile Phone
- CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz
- GPU build-in Intel HD Graphics 520. Works for me. HDMI video works out of the box, I attached a Full HD monitor (1920x1080) and it works just fine. GPU consumes 1.5Gb of memory, I found no way to reduce this amount so far. Later I attached one more monitor using VGA slot, all the three monitors are working fine together.
- RAM 4Gb DDR4 was replaced with 2x8Gb DDR4 Kingston ValueRAM KVR21S15D8/8 2133 MHz, 17000 Mb/s.
- Hard drive. For testing purposes I used 500Gb HDD which comes with laptop and works out of the box.
- Ethernet. RealtekRTL8111.kext works for me.
- WiFi Intel 3165 - known to be unsupported. Replaced with Dell DW1560 (chipset Broadcom BCM94352Z). Everything except AirDrop seems to be working. I published notes about AirDrop a separate thread: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/airdrop.203219/
- Keyboard and touchpad requires additional driver (see below)
- WebCamera [04f2:b51d] Chicony works (detected as a USB device)
- Fingerprint Reader. [138a:003f] Validity Sensors, Inc. VFS495 - I have no clue how to make it work. And I don't really need it.
- Card Reader Realtek RTS522A [10ec:522a] - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/321080-sineteks-driver-for-realtek-rtsx-sdhc-card-readers/page-3#entry2376387
- Audio [8086:9d70] Intel Sunrise Point-LP HD Audio, Codecs: Conexant CX20724, Intel Skylake HDMI. Work for me (both).
- Bluetooth [8087:0a2a] works (detected as a USB device)
- VT-x works (Note: need to disable 3d acceleration in vmware fusion to avoid crashes)
Before you start
1) Update BIOS to the latest version. You can find self-extracting archive files here https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-probook-430-g3-notebook-pc/7834547 Today the latest BIOS version available is v1.17. UPDATE: due to vulnerabilities found in Intel processors, it is strongly recommended to update BIOS to version 01.24 Rev.A or later.
2) Set video memory size in BIOS to 64MB
3) Enable "Launch Hotkeys without Fn keypress" in BIOS settings. This will let you use volume buttons in the top of your keyboard.
4) There is one more option "Swap Fn and Ctrl (Keys)" which seems to be designed for mac users. I prefer to turn it on.
1) Get Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app to your /Applications folder https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-high-sierra-beta/id1209167288?mt=12
2) Format flash drive like that
diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk2 GPT JHFS+ HighSierraInstallUSB 0b
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/HighSierraInstallUSB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra\ Beta.app --nointeraction
4) Get the latest Clover from Sourceforge and install it to the USB stick like that:
5) Move kexts from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11 to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
6) Boot using this USB stick and install macOS
7) Reboot, use USB stick to boot your fresh operating system
8) install clover to your hard drive as you did it above with USB stick. Basic options are:
- Install for UEFI booting only
- Install Clover in the ESP
- Drivers64UEFI > CsmVideoDxe-64 (Clover needs it to switch to screen resolution 1366x768)
- Drivers64UEFI > OsxAptioFix2Drv-64
(Optional) An if you want to save some options like keyboard brightness or sound level during reboot, you need NVRAM. For this reason you may need to add two more options:
- Drivers64UEFI > EmuVariableUefi-64
- Install RC scripts on target volume
And in this case you'll need to reboot twice (daemon will be launched during the first reboot)
Note 1: if you choose to use new APFS filesystem, you'll have to add apfs.efi driver to EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder.
Note 2: Do NOT use Multibeast. Install vanilla Clover.
Note 3: I used USB mouse and keyboard to complete the installation because build-in input devices were not recognized
Audio notes (optional)
Now you have a bootable instance of macOS, so let's make a short break.
The reason for this manual to happen is that I had some issues with Rehabman's scripts (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-hp-probook-elitebook-zbook-using-clover-uefi-hotpatch-10-11.189416/). The issue is that this bunch of scripts contains Mirone's audio codec. This codec make friends with HDMI but doesn't make friends with audio jack. First of all I never use my HDMI monitor as audio output device. But it does not behave well during sleep, sometimes macOS just crashes instead of sleep and I suspect this is due to this HDMI audio.
Thus I decided to give a try to AppleALC. The result was exactly as I expected. MacOS does not recognize HDMI as an audio output device and audio jack works like a charm.
If you want to use alternative audio driver, you need to apply the patch attached during next step. Also you'll have to update Lilu.kext and set layout id to 3 in config.plist.
Just change 7 to 5 here: https://github.com/RehabMan/HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch/blob/master/hotpatch/include/layout7_HDEF.asl#L9
IMPORTANT! Backup original AppleHDA.kext. Rehabman's scrips overwrite it, so you'll have to reinstall macOS from scratch in case you'd like to give a try to AppleALC.
- Build a bunch of kexts and install them like that:
mkdir ~/Projects cd ~/Projects git clone https://github.com/RehabMan/HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch probook.git cd ~/Projects/probook.git ./download.sh ./install_downloads.sh
cd ~/Projects/probook.git ./build.sh ./install_acpi.sh install_4x0g3_skylake
cp config/config_4x0s_G3_Skylake.plist /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 sudo pmset -a standby 0 sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0 sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage
