Yes. DP on laptop works when undocked.

So... it seems like that is expected... the port on dock is just the same port on the laptop.
So both are not expected to work at the same time for separate monitors.

Hello RehabMan, I have got same HP Probook 4530s, I have a few questions.
I have yet to prepare this laptop for hackintosh, I'm not doing anything right away.

I am not seeing BIOS F.60 on HP website but F.63 Rev.A is the latest BIOS update, should I update to F.63 Rev.A?

Will I be able to enable handoff and such features with AR5B195, if not then let me know?

Post #1 recommends the latest BIOS.

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

I got it now. I hope this is everything, kind of missed that thread earlier
the problems I'm seeing are the biggest being the battery status in the menu bar either shows 100% plugged in or doesn't show at all and the screen brightness doesn't change smoothly. I've been seeing garbage on the screen as well and I'm not sure what this is but hitting the far right desktop bounces everything the wrong way, I assume this is a macOS bug.

Seems like ioreg is missing.
Please read problem reporting again. Carefully this time.

Battery problem may be timing related. Because we already know that if you enable TRIM with certain SSDs, combined with APFS, you can have a slow boot which causes problems for battery status. Your system might be slower than usual because of the fact you have HDD instead of SSD. The battery status kext has a kernel flag to increase the delay for slow systems. The default is 4000ms. Try adding kernel flag abm_firstpolldelay=16000 (16 second delay before reporting any battery status).

If that is not the problem, then maybe your BIOS is not up-to-date. Or you need to do EC reset.

Smooth transitions with brightness keys is not expected. That disappeared when IntelBacklight.kext stopped working in 10.12.4.

Boom and/or VirtualBox (your ioreg shows both installed) may also be part of the problem.
