PBI with chameleon is pretty decent and stable

It is best to make a new one with clover from 1.0 version and paralelly to develop it and make it better

If users do not thik is better they can only revert to the latest PBI

And the guide would be completely different on Clover....


10x for keeping the comunity alive u rule! ! !
There is already a guide for Clover. Just the details of running the ProBook Installer and installing Clover would differ.

I think there should be a separate "Clover edition" PBI. It would make the PBI pretty complex to include both and complexity leads to bugs.

I was thinking of that, to make a new PBI with clover and make new instructions on how to use it (the new PBI with clover)

Just read the Clover guide, and it looks highly complex (it might be me, but i think PBI with chameleon is pretty easy to use)

RM, will u be able to include it in PBI and make it at least as close and easy to use it as the latest PBI with chimera... ? ? ?

If the PBI had direct support for Clover, certain aspects of the ProBook/Clover setup process would be simplified.

I'd go for two branches:
PBI (with Clover)
and PBI legacy (with Chameleon)
This way "critical" updates (if there would be any) could be applied to both new PBI and the old one.

If is the word, can we count on the Clover direct support, to develop it and make it as easy as PBI with chameleon . . .

According to your log, the cause for your unsuccessful installation is the AHCI patch. It seems it doesn't contain support for 10.8.5 and because of that, it fails. I doubt you need it on 10.8.5.
philip_petev, thanks for your help. the install completed this time for PBI 13r3, this time I left the 2 AHCI options unchecked.

Since this is not a fresh install of 10.8.5 on a 4x30s, does this mean if a fresh install of 10.8.5 on 4x30s, the 2 ACHI options in PBI do not need to be checked to ensure the system hardware functioning ?


This group contains options, which generally are not needed for the normal work of the operating system, but in some cases they should be installed:

  • AHCI patch (10.8.x only) - this option will patch IOAHCIFamily.kext, located in /S/L/E. Use it only if you have the "STILL WAITING FOR ROOT DEVICE" problem on your ProBook.
  • AHCI 3rd party kext - this option will install AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext in your /S/L/E. Use it only if the OS doesn't show (for some reason) your optical drive (whatever it is).

That's right, but right now I still wonder what to do: to add Clover to the current ProBook Installer or to make a new one that will be Clover-only based, what do you think about it, guys?
I'd go for a seperate installer if there are too many dependencies. Otherwise it'll make the installer unnecessary complex.
What I would like to see though is an easy way to switch/upgrade my current Chameleon installation to Clover. If that could be done by just checking of a few boxes in the installer than that would be a real help.
Thanks for the development to all developers who made it all possible!

Cheers,
Biggie
