    Hi, thanks for the wonderful guide.
    I have just a question about the laptop compatibility, before to start to follow this guide.

    HP PROBOOK 450 G2
    Intel Core i7 (4 gen) 4510U / 2 GHz
    Intel HD Graphics 4400
    Memory‎:‎ 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM
    Memory slots‎:‎ 2 SODIMM


    Sorry for the question, i know there is the laptop compatibility section, but please just tell me yes or not about the compatibility of this laptop with this guide, before i pay 800 euros for buying it.


    Thanks a lot.

    There are several people reporting success with the 450 G2 and OS X.

    Thanks for your answer. I'm in doubt between the 450 G2 and Lenovo z50-70. Hope to make the better choice. I'm OT so i leave the conversation to HP users.

    They are pretty equal as far as guide method and compatibility.

    I'm not sure if the Z50 requires patched BIOS due to WiFi whitelist?

    I don't know, maybe the best solution is a WiFi Dongle. Probably i will choose the HP (but it as 4GB ram instead of 8GB of Lenovo).

    I just installed on a similar system (see signature). Everything but waking up from sleep is working.
