Ok, Thank you. Of course risk is mine . Will try 28xx or 27xx
any luck with those cpu's ? os x 10.11?
They'll work fine in 10.11. Was looking at the i7 2630QM. They're at a good price now. Be sure that you remove the old SSDT for your old CPU and regenerate a new one for the new CPU.
Well, I took the plunge and replaced my i3-2310M with i7-2670QM on my ProBook 4530s. but now i cant boot back to my system El Capitan. I cant even boot to safe mode to make changes to Config.plist or Install PBI.
Even with Unibeast USB, I am receiving "P-State Stepper error 18". then the system reboots again
I tried in Clover bootloader:
Enabling CState Generate
I can still boot to Win10 without any problems.
For the crowd to upgraded their CPUs, any hint?
Thank you very much.
Bios rev f.60
P.S., i do have access to another Hackintosh running Yosemite
Need to remove old SSDT. recommend booting from a pen drive and re-generating a new SSDT. Follow #1 at the same time recommend changing to Clover Hotpatch . http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...zbook-using-clover-uefi-hotpatch-10-11-a.html
Thank you so much @jbamford, I have a lot of reading to do
I'll report back either way.
You welcome If you've used PBI then id recommend moving to Hotpatch its the new way of patching. PBI is no longer maintained. Let me know if any problems.
After hours of messing with my 4530s, with unlimited errors. Osxaptiofixdrv memory error, USB that wont boot, and now Windows that wont install with "cant make changes to boot" error
But back to my original problem, i had to start new installation after upgrading the CPU. I tried regenerating a new DSDT but that didn't help cause of my limited knowledge , but with fresh install i lost access to my Windows boot partition. That is a whole new story to tell
Soon i'll be disassembling the laptop to upgrade my screen to HD.
No need for patched DSDT with the current guide. Please read it carefully: http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...zbook-using-clover-uefi-hotpatch-10-11-a.html
You should do this before re-installing (just to save the hassle of switching from SSDT-IGPU.aml to SSDT-IGPU-HIRES.aml.
Thanks RehabMan, I finaly succeeded in installing Win7 on MBR but still no go on GPT, same error as Win cant make changes to PC's boot..
Let me start a new thread so i can keep this for the CPU upgrade.
