Greetings,
Followed Rehabman's guide and enjoying the results. All is functional with the exception of screen brightness control. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi everyone,

I successfully updated to catalina following this guide, which already contains the bios EC hotpatch, firstly updating clover and crucial kexts (AppleALC, Lilu and WEG). Then I updated kexts for bluetooth injection (I use a Dell DW1560) and that's it!
I use an HP Probook 450 G5

Thanks again @RehabMan!

Regards,

Marco

Hi guys,

I have a elitebook 8440P that, as per first page is not a compatible book, am I right? By the way, is there a possibility to use this laptop with MacOS? If yes which version should I install?

Thank you in advance.

This question is for moderators will @RehabMan come back or no?
O WOW, didn't realize that RehabMan was no longer on TMX... No wonder he never added the 450 G6 files I sent a while back... Does anyone know if he's still working on the ProBook repo/project? Is he OK?

I have a fully functional Mojave installed on my elitebook 8470p.
Is it possible to clone this SSD to another one?

The reason: I'm thinking about updating to Catalina directly from system prefs but I prefer to test it on a clone before updating the original system.

Thanks

That's a great idea! Always backup :)

Use SuperDuper! or Carbon Copy Cloner. They should both be able to make a backup of your disk to another disk. In this case, you can use an SSD docked to an external drive bey, it should work the same.

If using something like SuperDuper! it may not copy your EFI partition, but you can manually copy your EFI folder to the new cloned drive's EFI. Test the system by booting from the backup, to be sure all is in working order before you do the actual upgrade...

Hello guys! I have an Elitebook 840 G5 laptop...
I added -disablegfxfirmware, because in the last restart of Install I got a Kernel Panic.
Catalina Update went well, but I'm without bluetooth (DW1560) and without sound...
I used the most recent AppleALC, but it's not working for now...
Could you please post your EFI folder? I have the same model and want to try It. Did you need to change stock nvme?
