Thanks, i will choose the HP for sure and start with this guide. Please can you tell me how to check the series number of an HP? (7 series, 8 series, etc.).

Not sure if has better compatibility an i7 4510u with Intel HD 4400 or an i7 5500u with Intel HD 5500.

Thanks a lot
Daniela

7-series/8-series/9-series refers to the board chipset.

Both are supported.

I suppose the i7 4510u is a 7 series, i7 5500u an 8 series and i7 6500u a 9 series. RehabMan thanks for your answers.

No. i7-4510u is Haswell. Most Haswell laptops use 8-series, but 9-series is also possible.

i7-5500u is Broadwell. I think most Broadwell laptops are 9-series. I don't know if Broadwell CPUs can be fitted to an 8-series motherboard.

i7-6500u is Skylake. Skylake CPUs use 100-series chipsets.

Thanks, definitely i will buy a G2 ProBook 450 i7-5500u with Intel HD 5500, and use this guide. Thanks again for your work and support.

You can change kernel flags in Clover options. Or set in config.plist/Boot/Arguments. It is a kernel flag for USBInjectAll.kext and is documented in the USBInjectAll readme.
