I don't understand your question. What do you need help with? Did you read post #1?
Hi RehabMan,
thanks for your reply. Yes, I did read the post. And I'm fully aware of the wifi/bt intel issues for skylake. But unfortunately I already ordered one of the recommended before the laptop arrived. Now that I've realised, that the size/shape/form factor also plays a role I'm looking for adequate replacements. Some posts on eBay seem to imply compatibility for hackintoshes except from hp. I'm a little at a loss. Is it possible at all to get the G3 fully working with whatever compatible wifi/bt card?

Your G3 is likely NGFF/M.2 (2230). Read post #1 for recommendations. There is no WiFi whitelist implemented in your BIOS.

Dell DW1560 should be fine. I ordered one, but it have not arrived yet.

Note: DW1560 is BCM94352Z.
Note 2: Less patches required with BCM943602BAED.

Hi RehabMan,

Thank you for your clear and easy guide. I'm not sure if you mentioned this in the guide yet, but in my laptop 8470p with CPU i5-3320M, running only ./ssdtprgen.sh will limit CPU to x8 only, and the system is extremely slow. I have to run with "-w 3" to get PM working well.

Thanks for the wonderful guild. I will try it on my hp 4230s later (upgraded to i7-2630qm)

Hi RehabMan,

You're back with an EliteBook, eh?

It is probably a bug in ssdtPRgen.sh. It used to do -w 3 for Ivy automatically, but somewhere along the way it was changed to not do that for certain versions of OS X. I think it is a mistake. The ssdtPRgen.sh script has an email for bug reports.

--

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

Mobo: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
Mobo: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

Note: When specifying your bootloader, if using Clover legacy, please be sure to specify "Clover legacy"). Specifying "Clover" will be assumed as "Clover UEFI"

Piker is aware of that, but he decides it's not a bug, we have to test and find best setting. It was default to 3 in the very old version, and now he sets to 1.

I added a note in post #1 regarding the possibility of -w 3 for Ivy.
This is good to know, as I have a i5-3360m SR0MV on order for my HP ProBook 4440s, once it arrives which will be Tuesday (reference Star Trek: Generations anyone? lol) I will report if this happens to me as well.
