This config.plist is not corrupt.

You should never use a text editor with plists, unless you plan to very careful, and check them by using "plutil -lint" or by opening in Xcode or PlistEdit Pro to be certain you didn't damage the file syntax.

I think that my new battery is bad: Now it turned off at 40 % and macOS says that it has 2700 mAh capacity.

Turned on showed 0 % , after 2 minutes unplugged the charger shows 81 %,plugged back in shows 48 % and charging.

Hi, I am new to Mac OS in general (haven't used it in ages), and really never worked with kext, plist,etc but need to learn for new job I hopefully will be getting. So sorry for stupid questions. I have read the post, and still have couple questions.

I am trying to build one using my EliteBook 8470w, and tried several times with no success.. using various methods. It will be dual boot MacOS/Win10.

I want to verify some things before trying again using this method. I ordered the BCM94352HMB wifi card, so right now have to install the NIC from Multi-Boot (or thats how I got it to work before).

Regarding "Note: FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext are available here: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Fake-PCI-ID. ProBookAtheros.kext is available in the 4x30s DSDT patch github: https://github.com/RehabMan/HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch (download the ZIP of the entire github project)."
Where do I place those? On the boot USB stick, or once its installed? I assume on USB, but looked last night and couldn't figure out exactly where.. With my luck i was tired and totally missed it.

Has anyone else had luck with this laptop model getting everything to work? I know one thing I need to figure out is the graphics since its an AMD FirePro 2000.

again, sorry for the noob questions...

BTW, thanks rehabman for the hours spent on this.

As is clearly written in post #1, this guide is only for Intel graphics equipped laptops.
Sorry.. I thought it had Intel HD 4000, but i finding some that its totally disabled.

Your profile indicates "ATI FirePro M2000" only (no HD4000), and from what I remember about the 8470w, your profile is, in fact, accurate.

You should test your battery on Windows to verify.

So, under Windows has the same problem. I used powercfg /batteryreport to see the capacity before and after AC plug/unplug and has the same behavior as macOS. So my new battery is defective. It will be replaced under warranty after 14 days because they don't have the battery on stock.

Sorry for spaming the forum with posts when my problem was a hardware problem.

Nice to hear you have determine the source of the problem.

Goes to show: Must test your assumptions regarding hardware function on Windows before assuming there is some software problem!
