Hello, I havent looked into hackintosh for a long time... But today I got a elitebook g5 830. specs: https://support.hp.com/rs-en/document/c05898590

is this worth looking into dual booting with ubuntu? what I am specifically looking into is having wifi card in promiscious mode so that I can run some macos-only apps....

wifi card: Realtek RTL8822BE
lspci | grep Wireless
01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 8265 / 8275 (rev 78)

I've followed the guide (used Clover in UEFI only mode) step by step, and boot & install went through fine - however, when I try to boot installed system (still using Clover from my USB stick), I get just a black screen after a short period of loading bar (5-10 seconds).

I've checked my graphics settings - memory allocation is set to required 64 MB, so I am kinda lost. What else could cause this issue?

I think yes. This Realtek RTL8822BE seems to be supported via kexts so you can do it

HP Probook 4530s 8GB RAM, Samsung evo 850 256 GB / macOS 10.13.6

problems:

- macOS freezes when i use Android Studio (when typing something from the keyboard)

- White and black lines when using some screen capturing software (quicktime,monosnap)

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Hello @RehabMan my laptop model does not have an install script (think so), it's a ProBook 6470b that was working wit the old guide (Install 10.11 on HP EliteBook/ProBook/others with Clover UEFI). I provide the requested information, hoping it's complete and just need small tweaks.

Thanks for reading (and replying)!
@RehabMan please help :cry:
there's no install script for my laptop model, hope you can help! :thumbup:
p.s. i attached everything files of "Problem Reporting"

Of course there is. Look:
Code:
NUC6i7KYK:probook.git rehabman$ ./install_acpi.sh help|grep -y 6x70
install_6x70
install_6x70_hires
