What could then my Nvidia card be? PEGP at 0x001000? According to the System Report and Windows an HPs specs I have an Nvidia K1000m.
It will be obvious by looking at ioreg.

And _BCL,BQC,BCM are not found in the DSDT.
You would need to post all native DSDT/SSDTs (eg. Clover F4 extract to ACPI/origin).

Hello guys, first of all thanks so much for your guide; i have just a question; i have installed everything on dual boot with win, ive ordered a compatible HP branded wifi card Broadcom 43224HMS from aliexpress 8,78€ shipping included, when it will arrive i need to reinstall osx, or system got driver?


No need to reinstall. PBI-CE has already installed the necessary files...

Try making sure firmware is loaded for your device when booting OS X...

Two ways:
- restart into OS X from Windows (eg. don't cold boot, but rather warm boot from Windows)
- use BrcmPatchRAM2.kext + BrcmFirmwareData.kext (EFI/Clover/kexts)
Is there some way to disable or delete kexts from OS X installer? I would like to try deleting Bluetooth kexts and see if that works.

I've tried to boot the installer in single user mode and then delete IOBluetooth* kexts but the installer partition is write protected. Same problem when I try to delete those files from Finder or Console.

A newbie like me doesn't know where to look in the ioreg, but you can off course.


Will you please look in the attached files.

Will the DSDT patching in PBI-CE remove _BCL,BQC,BCM from the DSDT? What methods for screen brightness control are available?

I also have a feeling that the display itself isn't properly recognised. Displays in About this Mac doesn't show a laptop screen but a TV. Please see the attached picture. I wonder if that is why I have no brightness control slider.

Not using createinstallmedia.

You should try the things I mention first.

Discrete card is at PCI0.PEGP.DGFX.

_BCM/_BCL/_BQC are in SSDT-2.aml.

Yes... You're lacking the needed injections to make it recognized as AppleBacklightDisplay. I'm pretty sure I mentioned this previously.

Note: Have you tried the Nvidia web drivers?

As always, you are right RM. I am going around in circles. Without breaking out. And without the proper knowledge to find a starting point on what and how to do it. So I need screen injection?

Those were the first things I tried. When trying the BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext I added those into "EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other". I have deleted 10.9 etc folders from there.

I checked and the device should be supported by your kext.

Broadcom 20702 Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter (BCM20702A0), USB\VID_0A5C&PID_21E1&REV_0112

Any idea what i'm missing?

Boot verbose, show photo. Post EFI/Clover folder as ZIP (omit 'themes' folder).

Keep in mind Clover does not inject kexts if the boot target's kernel cache contains FakeSMC.kext and config.plist/SystemParameters/InjectKexts=Detect. Use space bar in Clover to see what Clover will be doing regarding kext injection.

Don't forget to disable the serial port as mentioned in post #1.
