The guide is ONLY for current HP laptop users with WORKING Mavericks using my Clover Mavericks guide.

Procedure to update to Yosemite

1. Press F4 at Clover screen.

2. Run latest PBI CE and update Clover, kexts, DSDT, config.

3. Restart to check if you're still alive :lol:

4. Go to AppStore, download and install Yosemite, the installer will tell you to restart.

5. When it restarts, select the new boot option in Clover screen to install.

6. When everything is done, check your bluetooth/audio. If it does not work, rerun PBI CE to update kexts and use Kext Wizard to repair permission, rebuild cache a few times to make it really stable.

8. For anyone with HD4400/HD4600, you have to generate config/patch dsdt, and select option to enable OpenGL/OpenCL in PBI CE.

97. Enjoy!
Troubleshoot

- For users with Broadcom 43224 wifi card, you have to set SMBIOS to MacBook Air 5,2 to get Wifi working.

Wow!
This seems to be the easiest upgrade to new OSX for Probooks!

I am on Mavericks on a ProBook 6460b with Chameleon installed through Rehabman's installer. Can I use your post-installer to convert this installation to clover by also selecting the relevant kexts I require?

Thank you for being so quick to release this!!!

EDIT: I took the plunge and used the PBI with clover and it worked - the only issue is it doesn't recognize my battery anymore - any ideas?

Thanks!

As long as you can survive til step 3, you're good to go.

Read my guide to convert Chameleon to Clover UEFI:

If you don't want to take this risk, do a clean install.

I have the same problem. We have to wait couple of hours for Yosemite to download it from AppStore. Hope not so long. My Store is Slovak :/ If in United States will be soon as mine, I will change my store.
