[Guide] Install 10.11 beta on HP EliteBook/ProBook/others with Clover UEFI

@ jalembic and @wolfanger:

Please send me /var/log/install.log. Also go to terminal and type: csrutil status, give me the result.

Also, mount EFI partition by CC and send me the /EFI/Clover folder (not EFI folder).

[Guide] Install 10.11 beta on HP EliteBook/ProBook/others with Clover UEFI

Two issues:
1 - When creating the installation media, I no longer have a clear screen during the installation boot.
2 - When I install from previous Yosemite media with older clover/config.plist, and upgrade to El Capitan, the HP Probook Installer Clover Edition 6.4.3 complains that I did not press F4, even though I definitely did.

Details:
Installing on my zbook15g2. When I copy the 4400-4600 config.plist to the USB install media, and I boot from the usb key, my screen is garbled, however the cursor is not. I have not had a problem in the past installing with previous config.plist.

As a science experiment, I took my older 10.10.4 install usb, and re-installed from scratch applying the HP Probook Installer Clover Edition 6.4.3. I then updated to 10.10.5 and then to El Capitan. Note, that when the zbook15g2 booted to the El Capitan upgrade media, the screen was garbled during the upgrade process. Once the upgrade completed and rebooted again, the screen was clear/normal.

I rebooted into clover, pressed F4, and saw the disk light have activity. When I ran HP Probook Installer Clover Edition 6.4.3, I got the warning dialog that F4 had not been pressed, and the install error'd out. I rebooted and repeated again, and same error.

Thoughts?

Try the HD4400-4600 1366x768 config.plist to see if you this problem again.

It's not your fault, I will try to find a workaround for this weird partition system (look like 10.11 setup has screwed it up somehow).

Try PBI CE 6.4.4 Beta. If it does not work, send me /var/log/install.log again.

That worked! What was the difference?

And to be clear, the GUI initialized to 1920x1080.

Set the Clover GUI resolution (not OS X) to 1024x768.

UniBeast: Install OS X El Capitan on Any Supported Intel-based PC

HP 4530s chimera/chameleon 10.6.8 and going to try unibeast 6.0 installation method for el capitan after I finish downloading.

I'm not sure where to post troubleshooting as there is no thread specifically for 4530s el capitan yet. AFAIK this unibeast method will convert me to clover in the process? I should expect some drama with the big jump from 10.6.8 to 10.11 as well? I guess I'm waiting for someone to talk me out of it or hopefully there is another 4530 guy or gal doing the same!

Follow post #1. It does not use Unibeast. Please do not write duplicate posts.
