But fact that I use Windows system makes that i7 can not work on my notebook? Or it's no difference?
And last question - tips about SSDT is only for Hackintosh user? I do not have anything to do after change?

Doesn't make no difference. If you're running Windows you can still do the CPU upgrade. Windows will see the CPU straight away. SSDT is for OS X not Windows.

Unfortunatelly I found another doubt...

2670QM/2630QM have 45W TDP, stock i3 / i5 in UMA version 35W.
AC for UMA is 65W, for notebook with ATI graphic card it's 90W!

So I'll have to change AC also or +25W is only for graphic and I can stay with stock 65W?



I worried is it 100% safe (same power sections or sth in notebook?). Only difference is AC adapter?

You will still have an Intel only board (no AMD). But you'll find out when you get it done. AC adapters are inexpensive.

Mine doesn't have ATI Radeon Graphic. Hence why it says UMA instead of disc. UMA is Intel HD Graphics. You won't have no issues.

Any problems with upgrade? Needs some modification in notebook / soft / bios?
I have BIOS Version 68SRR Ver. F.60

You think 2670 will be also compatible?
I upgraded from an i3 to an i7 2670QM and have had no problems whatsoever.
My 4530s is an EU model with only HD3000.
