Hello,
I have a HP EliteBook Folio 9470m were I'm trying to put Mavericks running!
I'm an Arch Linux user and I want to install Mavericks as dual-boot.

I follow the guide to install using clover, but I'm always stuck at boot, since it stop at the boot loader with a black screen. I already try with other USB, but it seems that it can't load the boot loader.

I use the guide from RehabMan and it installed correctly. But now I have to use the USB disk to start Mavericks.

I already try to install the clover (after the installation) using the HP Probook Installer Clover, but it also stuck at boot load.

Could some one help me?
This is my first interaction with the MacOS!

What did you choose when selecting PBI CE?

Can you go to Clover screen at all?

Did you set Native UEFI in BIOS?

What is PBI CE?

No. Just black screen. I try to use "enter" and other keys, to see if the loader continues, but no chance.

Did you set Native UEFI in BIOS?
I have tried with both UEFI modes.
Also tried to format the PEN with a GPT table.

And now if I load clover to HDD EFI partition with HP Probook Installer Clover, the result is the same :(
Seems to be a problem with Clover loader.

I have double checked the BIOS options and also tried with the BIOS defaults.

ProBook Installer Clover Edition. Read post #1 for correct usage.

Can you reach Clover via USB? What if you explicitly select the Clover (CLOVERX64.EFI or BOOTX64.EFI) EFI from the boot menu?

I never ever seen the clover menu.
I always get a black screen and the system freezes.

Double check that you created the USB correctly. What hardware are you using to create your USB?

Also be sure you have the latest BIOS installed.

My running Arch Linux use UEFI. And I can boot it in any mode of UEFI in BIOS.

I have already copied the files of the Clover partition from post #1 to my HDD EFI partition and continues to show a black screen.

So... you were able to reach Clover on USB and install?

I don't see what Linux has to do with Clover. You should still be certain you have the latest BIOS.

No. I never ever seen the Clover menu!
It always hangs at a black screen, using USB or HDD.

I believe that could be a BIOS option... but what? I have unchecked all options mentioned in the first post.

It is either BIOS option, old BIOS version, or incorrectly configured/created USB. Try different things. Different USB stick, different USB ports, update BIOS version if you don't have the latest, reset BIOS to defaults and revisit important options, etc.

Prior to installation, you're booting from USB using Esc+F9 to reach BIOS boot menu.
