Hi nguyenmac, I hope you can help me.
I've updated from Mavericks to Yosemite following your guide. It all went pretty well.
Except for two things: Facetime and iCloud drive.
When I click on either iCloud drive icon in Finder or in System Settings, it just ends up with a spinning wheel (the grey one)
When I open facetime I enter my apple ID and password. I'm then asked:

I click on Allow (or Always Allow) and then I get this notification:

And I must say: I wouldn't feel comfortable with my probook calling Apple support ;)

Do you have any suggestions how to fix this? I tried using the PBCI a number of times with rebuilding the caches, but that did not solve it.

I look forward to reading your reply.

Thanks,
Biggie

I had 4530s with 10.9.5 and Chameleon bootloader. There are some steps how I moved to 10.10 with Clover:

1. First of all, I've downloaded Yosemite from AppStore.
2. ProBook Installer CE.
3. Then I've made bootable flash drive with 10.10 according to the nguyenmac's guide for installing 10.10.
4. Also I had to switch to UEFI boot in BIOS menu despite the message saying that this option only for development and shouldn't be used.
5. Then there was a little bit tricky part to choose .efi file from the flash during next boot.
6. Again, according to the nguyenmac's guide for migrating: F4 + boot from existing install of Mavericks.
7. After the booting into Mavericks the latest PBI CE did the job: Clover bootloader + kexts + dsdt + ssdt and some optional files.
8. Then I rebooted. It was a point of no return :D everything worked fine.
9. And after that I've successfully upgraded to 10.10 as described here in the first post. The only problem was audio but it was solved with reinstalling kexts and fixing permissions and rebuilding cache.

big thanks to nguyenmac and RehabMan!

Regarding my problem with restart few seconds after wake. This is what I've done, maybe it will help someone:
Repatched DSDT -> nothing
Numerous EC Resets -> nothing
Finally I restored BIOS to defaults, put appropriate settings again and reseted EC once again. Now sleep/wakes ok, hopefully not only for a moment.

Try booting to installer and verify/repair your disk.

I run Disk Utility (not from installer, just from my system), and here is output

It seems that problem is not in the disk, right? Or I should run disk check from installer?
