You might start by listing the specs of your laptop...

Sound: ALC663

Search for patched AppleHDA.

Videocard: 740M 4GB video ram ( will this work in ML?)

If this is switchable "optimus" graphics, it won't work. I assume you're using integrated Intel HD3K/HD4K?

The trackpad isn't working..

What trackpad is in your laptop?

Bluetooth is asking for a keyboard..

Go into SysPrefs -> Bluetooth -> Advanced. Uncheck the boxes.

light in my keyboard

Do you see it in USB section of System Information?

Battery information*

Usually requires ACPI-based battery manager and sometimes DSDT edits.

Depends on the specific WiFi chip/card you have in your laptop. What do you have?

Your WiFi will not work. You'll need to replace it with a compatible card. See: http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook/97099-wi-fi-bluetooth-cards-laptops-mac-os-os-x.html

If your BIOS implements a whitelist (eg. only certain cards allowed), you will need to find a way around that or use a card that is acceptable to both BIOS and OS X (download your service manual to see if there is one).

As far as graphics, you will need to use only HD4000 and disable the nvidia in BIOS if you can. Also you will probably need DSDT patches to make your HD4000 work. What is the resolution of your screen?

For sound google 'patch AppleHDA guide'. One of the first steps in any AppleHDA guide is getting a codec dump from Linux. This will tell you your codec ID. You can use that to search for an already patched AppleHDA.

You must have had Synaptics trackpad...
