Hi, im new to this and really wanna try to make my HP ProBook 4540s into a Mac!
I havnt changed anything i side the PC, but i got an USB wifi and thought i might use this instead of replacing hw.

so what do i install on it? Do i have to start all the way down to SL? Or can i just create an USB with the macOS Version reccomended for my hw?

and what macOS do you reccomend for my laptop? I got Intel hd4000 + and and dedicated gpu.

I am planning to hackintosh my laptop which is the same as yours. Would you mind sharing your EFI with me so I could save time and effort. Also what does work and what does not?
Thanks

You shouldn’t have tagged me. I was just laughing. I myself even have my hackintosh issues

Problem was with booting after applying any patch. It wouldn't boot just crash. Got booted alright after adding - igfxmlr flag to boot arguments. Whatever it is :banghead:
Now struggling with fixing my backlight. Screen is dimmed after every couple restarts. Or sometime always. Backlight buttons works OK and I have brightness slider in display settings
