I've been searching everywhere, but there are guides for 4530s, but not a single one for 4540s. I guess it's almost the same, but has anybody installed Mac OS X on an HP Probook 4540s? If so, please give a detailed guide on how to install it, and also mention the BIOS settings.

I've tried to install Lion using Unibeast, but it doesn't boot into the Installer at all. It boots into the USb, but from thereon, no success.

I need some help here.

There's a thread for 4540s.
Tutorial: Install Chameleon/Chimera on a 4K drive (to make an idea)

I recommend you to follow my guide and not the one linked above. Here's mine:


Install Chameleon on a 4K drive (HP Probook 4540s)
-----------------------------------------------------------

1. Open "gptsync" in a Terminal window:

$ sudo ./gptsync -n /dev/disk0 2+

2. Install boot0 to the MBR:

$ sudo ./fdisk440 -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0

3. Install boot1h to the partition's bootsector (Boot from the USB drive!):

$ dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2

4. Install boot to the partition's root directory:

$ sudo cp boot /

5. Hide the boot file:

$ sudo chflags hidden /boot


I attached gptsync (OS X build) and chameleon trunk. If you wish you can use Chimera. I personally prefer Chameleon.

Hi zoltankr,
can you tell me exactly what works and what doesn't in your 4540s, please? I'm interesting in buying one.
