My notebook (8470p) only has VGA and DisplayPort outputs, VGA I know it doesn't work cause on another hackintosh I did (Desktop computer), I had to use an adapter DisplayPort to VGA to get the video to work since I don't have a Displayport display, so I was trying to use this same adapter on Elitebook 8470p too, but it didn't work.

So if there's any way to enable displayport on 8470p was hoping for some guidance to fix it. Not sure if a kext or some config could make it work.

Ps.: Tested this same adapter on 8470p windows install, worked nice.

Thanks
If I recall, there should be a config plist file that is part of RehabMan's guide that enables displayport. Check the config folders where you pulled RehabMan's github and see if there are any references to "DP" instead of "HDMI"

Hi !

I've stumbled upon a strange laptop :
I currently have my hands on four ProBooks 450 G2 running i5 6200u

I've tried the two 4x2 G2 profiles as well as the 4x0 G3 (Skylake) one, doesn't work :
with each profile, the laptop reboots at more or less half the loading bar on first load, and then at the mere appearance of the loading bar after subsequent reboots

the "base" config based on the generic HD520 works, but without sound / brightness control / etc

I'm at work for now, will provide my current EFI files if needed, and will as well try the clover F4 thing.
I don't know how to generate the audio codec dump

Laptop is HP ProBook 450 G2,
I5 6200U (so HD 520 - set to 128Mb in bios)
100 series chipset
15.6" 1366x768 (or something like that, the generic minimum windows 10 resolution)
Wi-Fi Intel Wireless-AC 8260 (not investing until the rest works)
some have 4G RAM, one has 8G (for now)


EDIT : It was my mistake, the model number sticker on the laptop I used to experiment was faded.
A read on an other one that saw less use and hence didn't have a faded model number sticker showed they were 650G2s and not 450G2s.

I was following this part as it appears the laptop isn't listed anywhere.....
Unsupported laptops

If you think your laptop might be similar to the ones listed as supported, but needs only small tweaks, please provide the following information:

- native DSDT/SSDT files extracted via Clover F4 (ACPI/origin)
- audio codec dump from Linux
- full hardware details (CPU, chipset, graphics device, screen resolution, etc)
- output from 'lspci -nn' in Linux Terminal

EDIT : wait... I've just rechecked again, they're not 450G2, but 650G2
I may have been fighting this since last week for nothing ><

EDIT2 : Yup, i was dumb visually impaired, sorry...
Should have read more carefully the model number on the back, thought it was a 4 that was faded, nope, it was a 6.
The one i had at work wasn't used as much so model number was almost pristine, would have saved so much time if i had looked at that one before :x
Almost everything works, except wifi / bluetooth (expected), "nipple" mouse (sadly expected, is there truly no way to get it working ?), and SD Card (expected).
Also, Windows key (right of space bar) and Alt-Gr key (left of space bar) seem to be interchanged, is there a way to edit keyboard settings to set them right ? Currently, i need to do Alt-Gr + c to copy, and "Windows" + 0 on my french azerty keyboard to get the @. NVM, found keyboard settings, set "command" to "option" key and vice versa.

Is powermanegement working for you ?
I have the same model as you and in Windows 10 geekbench is about 15.000 but in mojave only about 9.000.
I've tried sysdef. 11.1 - 14.1 - 15.2 and according to Intel Powergadget it doesn't reach 3.6 ghz but stays around 2,0 ghz.
And yes i enabled plugintype.
Any idea ?

Solved:
Had to enable Turbo Boost on DC in bios (Advanced/System Option)

Gonna check the guide again to see if I can find something to fix this. It's been awhile since I installed Mojave, don't remember all the steps. If I find some solution and have doubts, will ask here.

Thanks.

what happened to Rehabman?
Unsure, and obviously should not be our concern, he is neither obligated nor payed to assist us with his own guides that he posts, he merely did so out of necessity for his work. Therefore, if there is an issue, provide problem reporting files as mentioned in Post #1 of his guide, and someone will be able to assist you in some capacity.
