Nguyenmac, thanks for your prompt response!

Do you believe that if I use CarbonCopyCloner to make an image of MacosX to an external hard drive, it will be easy to transfer that image back to the re-formatted drive?

And one last question: My external drive, a WD Passport, is already formatted as GPT. Can I install Clover there, for testing reasons?

Thank you once more for your time.

You can install full OS X UEFI to any External drive, but you have to always press F9 at boot to boot there.

@nguyenmac,
I believe I've read in your guide that there was a computer restart upon resume from sleep with the 6-series laptop. I couldn't find it now, does that mean the problem has been solved ?

Many users confirm it's been fixed, so I removed it. If anyone report it again, I will put it up :banghead:

Great news, I'm going to reinstall my 4530s with Clover.

Edit : Since Windows multiple updates take a lot of time, is it possible to migrate from a Chameleon bootloader to Clover when there is a dual boot OSX-Windows 7 ?

Unfortunately, it still sometimes happens. It freezes and restarts after a second both when resuming from sleep and when disconnecting/connecting the AC adapter.

Repatched DSDT with current patches lately?

Yup, I even repatched the dsdt like yesterday as I noticed some changes on your HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch github repo. It's been fine for quite some time after installing a fresh 10.9.2 but now it came back. I have no slightest idea of what's causing this behaviour.

Any particular external devices connected?

Nope, not a single one. Not even a mouse, I got so used to the touchpad...

It's very inconsistent though. Sometimes it wakes up without a hitch and sometimes it freezes within few seconds of waking up and autorestarts. My laptop usage pattern is pretty similar every time as well, I'm not doing any CPU intensive tasks, just browsing the web, viewing PDFs and writing in Word...
