Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you my success of installing maOS Big Sur on my HP ProBook 440 G6.
My specs are:
CPU: Intel Core I5 8265u 1,6 Ghz to 3,9 Ghz in TurboBoost mode.
GPU: Intel UHD 620 (AAPL,ig-platform-id 0900A53E, device-id A53E0000)
Audio: Realtek ALC 236 (layout-id 14, 0E000000 with this layout I have working Int speaker, int mic, headphones and external mic, so properly working combojack)
I checked all layouts for alc236, but stopped at 14, cause all the things I need are working.
99 no ext mic
54 no ext mic
16 all works but no autodetect, no mute 10
18 no ext mic
15 all works but no autodetect F
14 all works but no autodetect, mute works E
13 no ext mic
12 no ext mic
11 no int mic
3 no ext mic
I decided that I do not need autodetect(It can be done by modifying platformsID.xml) of microphones as sometimes I want to have choice, which microphone I need. Autodetect of speakers and headphones working properly.

RAM: 16 GB
SSD: 256 GB
Ethernet: Realtek RTL 8168H
WiFi: I replaced module to BCM94360CS2 via adapter, I will attach photo of it. Working Out Of the Box
Bluetooth: After replace it also works Out Of the Box.
WIFI+BT do not need any kexts or patches. Working during installation and recovery.
Touchpad: Elan 2514

Let's begin.
I started with collecting SSDTs, DSDT I've patched following Rehabman's guide, but SSDT I followed Dortania's guide from his Github page. It is simply explained which SSDTs I should take.
In my case I need:
SSDT-AWAC (RTC fix)
SSDT-BATT (Battery status)
SSDT-EC-USBX (Embedded controller & USB power)
SSDT-PLUG (Native CPU power management)
SSDT-PNLFCFL (brightness control)
SSDT-XOSI (for touchpad)

After I collected all DSDT and SSDTs that I need, I continued with setting config.plist. All my hackintosh time I used Clover, but after I setup my another hackintosh for best peefomance I had nothing to modify)) So I decided to try OpenCore. It appeared very easy to get it working. Following the same Dortania's guide I've created a config.plist for my ProBook. I will attach my EFI folder, in case I did something wrong and you my fellow friends can show me where I mistaken.

For battery status you should apply this patch to your DSDT. All credits to its author.
With ACPIBatteryManager.kext it works great, no warnings about low capacity or something.

After you get working your battery, you should create a SSDT hotpatch. Follow this guide.
And then delete DSDT from your ACPI folder and from config.plist

For keyboard I use VoodooPS2Controller.kext but I have deleted from it's plugins folder everything except VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext (It's necessary for touchpad setup)
For some reason I have my brightness keys working properly without any patch from my side. I don't know how it happened.

For touchpad I use VoodooI2C.kext (I had problem that I didn't know right kext loading sequence. 1st VoodooGPI0.kext 2nd VoodooI2CServices.kext 3rd VoodooI2C.kext)

For USB I followed this guide

Built in camera: Works after USB patch.

HDMI requires these patches
framebuffer-patch-enable 01000000
framebuffer-con1-busid 01000000
framebuffer-con1-enable 01000000
framebuffer-con1-type 00080000

Airdrop, Handoff, Continuity working perfect as I have native wifi+bt chip

iMessage, FaceTime working perfect after proper data inserting.

Hi,

I have all working now, but sleep by closing the lid is not working. Also sleep breaks RTC and services like sidecar until reboot.

But the device works much better that the G5!

Thanks for your guide!

Hi!

Dear @Charly10000 and @newmalikhack, help us solve the problem:
the built-in camera does not work on the HP ProBook 440 G7 laptop (the system defines it as Quanta computer, Inc. with the ID 0408:5343, but in FaceTime it shows a black screen, the indicator does not light up) and there is no sound from the built-in microphone.

The installation used files from the github of the respected @Charly10000.
Everything works fine, except for the camera, built-in microphone and SD reader (its operation is not important).

As far as I understand, the HP Probook 450 g7 and HP Probook 440 g7 differ only in screen size.

Please help me, I'm at a dead end. :banghead:

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi.
This is exactly the reason why I no longer have the device.
I'm sorry.

Thank you so much for your quick response.
It is a pity that there is no solution to this problem.

Do you have a hackintosh now?
If so , what is the PC model and are there any problems with it?

Thanks.

Alright. You're welcome.
Sure, my new device is the best Hackintosh I've ever had. It's a Huawei MateBook X Pro 2018. All, and I mean really all things are running successful. Even Touchscreen.

Where did you get the adapter from? I searched for the adapters, but only find the clunky ones, not like yours with a cable. Could you provide a link maybe?

Now I have to say sorry for the late reply. Thank you for the links. I bought the adapter and a card (...C2AX) and everything is working flawless now. I have finally a fully working HackBook, thanks to you mate.
