Hi,
i'm trying to create a triple boot on my 8460p.
My goal:

- all operating system on one drive
- boot selection of them with clover bootloader
- i don't need that every partition is accessible from every os, i use external disk of 1TB for data storing


in my first try i have:
- successfuly installed osx and clover
- tried to install windows 10 in uefi mode but no success for some parttion issue, error regarding gpt partition

Make sure you read post #2 of the main Clover guide. It has important information regarding Windows dual-boot.

- linux install not possible at this point

Make sure you install Linux in UEFI mode.

Following clover main guide , i have deleted every partition from disk to redo in correct way every step:

1) boot from OSX Usb stick and under disk utility i create a 130Gb partition leaving the remaining space
2) now i'm completing installation.
3) After completing instead of launch clover install, can i install Windows 10 and linux and apply at the end Clover?
another question , if i press f9 to boot froma device i have only in uefi mode boot from uefi file, upgrade bay UEFI and hard disk UEFI, but not usb in uefi mode....so i have to launch from efi file on usb key ....instead is useful to run installation in uefi mode from dvd? i have both dvd of windows 10 64bit and linux mint 64bit.

thanks

Order of installing Clover vs. Windows/Linux does not matter.

if i press f9 to boot froma device i have only in uefi mode boot from uefi file, upgrade bay UEFI and hard disk UEFI, but not usb in uefi mode....

You can browse to the USB device via "boot from EFI file".

instead is useful to run installation in uefi mode from dvd? i have both dvd of windows 10 64bit and linux mint 64bit.

No experience with Mint. But it does not matter whether you launch the Win10 installer from USB or DVD. I always use USB due to the convenience and speed advantage.

It has been a while since I looked (and am away from my 4540s now), but from what I remember the WiFi light is white when WiFi+BT are on, amber when off.
thats is correct when BT+WiFi the light is white, otherwise amber.

I have just updated my HP Probook 450 G2 Haswell from the PBI to your hotpatch method: excellent work from you, thank you!

Here are some minor issues I have noticed (for my model):

- the G2 Haswell uses the SSDT-KEY87.aml
- install_acpi.sh without argument prints help text that lists various fanpref options (other: MOD, ORIG, SILENT), but the option SILENT is not known, should read QUIET
- my USB configuration is different from the one in hotpatch/SSDT-USB-4x0-G2.dsl: my laptop uses SSP1 (0x0a) and SSP2 (0x0b) instead of SSP3 and SSP4 (device ID is 0x9c31, in case that matters)

For now I have manually changed SSDT-USB-4x0-G2.dsl in order to make these two USB3.0 ports on the left hand side of my laptop work. I don't know how best to incorporate this into the repo if other users with the same model have no issues with the current configuration?

Regards

Be specific about your issue. "lost" is not descriptive enough.

Also, read post #1, "Problem Reporting". All files/output requested must accompany any problem report.

I will change KEY102->KEY87 and fix the help text for the fan preference.

As far as USB configuration, you will need to provide the data requested in "USB customization". I'll probably just add the SSP1/SSP2 ports. I'll try to look up the source of the current data.

It could have been that the data in 9xxx was formulated before we realized that we had a separate 9cb1 (that that data might be actually picked up by 9cb1), so I may just go with your data for 9c31...

It would be great if you could provide data on the location of each port HSxx, SSPx.
