  1. The HD4000 in my Elitebook doesn't show up, it uses the ATI m5950 I used the probook installer and my graphics are working well on this machine, I realize it won't help the OP, but the HD4000 never showed up when trying the methods here always had no QE/CI until I went to the uefi clover method with probook installer. the following is the output from HWinfo32 for Graphics Adapter. Video Chipset: ATI/AMD Radeon HD 6770M/7670M Video Chipset Codename: WHISTLER XT Video Memory: 1024 MBytes of GDDR5 SDRAM Video Card Video Card: AMD FirePro M5950 [HP] Video Bus: PCIe v2.0 x16 (5.0 Gb/s) @ x16 (5.0 Gb/s) Video RAMDAC: Internal DAC(400MHz) Video BIOS Version: Performance Processor Clock: 100.0 MHz Memory Clock: 150.0 MHz (Effective 600.0 MHz) Memory Bus Width: 128-bit Number Of ROPs: 16 Number Of Unified Shaders: 480 ASIC Serial Number: 1268129353936 Hardware ID: PCIVEN_1002&DEV_6740&SUBSYS_1630103C&REV_00 Driver Information Driver Manufacturer: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

  2. Just a follow up post here. I ended up using the PBI method, everything works perfectly with files dated closest to the date of this post. Yosemite 10.10.1 Not going to mention where I got the files / **tmX86**/ but the method, although hard to follow worked perfectly once I followed the directions to a "T". Thanks for your help Niresh, I wish I could have gotten your files to work for me.
  3. Yes, I got Clover installed on EFI partition. Works now on that.problem. Next I am trying to get DSDT to compile. Can get through most errors, but down near the end of the list I end up with "Brackets don't match " error and had got to a point where only 1 error left that said " unexpected end of file expected $end" or something like that and I couldn't figure out how to get rid of that one. I appreciate your reply and the work you are doing. Why boot2h instead.of boot1h? I put 1h in there and it works, what's the difference between the two files?
  4. try these boot flags when booting the installer, GraphicsEnabler=No SkipAtiGfx=Yes SkipNvidiaGfx=Yes SkipIntelGfx=Yes IGPEnabler=No Also could try setting your resolution in a boot flag like : "Graphics Mode"="1920x1080x32" Whatever the native resolution is.
  5. Hello all, Hoping someone who knows how to deal with this stuff will climb aboard with me and walk me through this. I’ve got Yosemite-Zone 10.10 Up and running on an HP Elitebook 8760w With an i7 2860qm and Ati m5950 (HD6770) HP Branded romless video. Set it up, it boots consistently, I’ve added a user and can reboot through clover (installed on the EFI partition that Mac creates in the GUID Mac Partition.) Right now I can not boot to the Clover Hard drive unless the USB Install media is present at boot time. Had no luck using the Chameleon end of the install even though this is like an exact opposite of what had been happening. As It Stands I Have a basically Virgin install that stays running, and shuts down/restarts without issues. Graphics have not been messed with except to specify 1920x1080 in the initial set up. My 500 Gb HD is in two HFS+ Partitions, This install is on the first partition, second was formatted in Disk Utility during install and untouched. I’d really like to know how to proceed from here with out screwing this up. I’ve tried multibeast and have never had any success. I’d really like to join the PBI bandwagon,, but I’ve had absolutely no success with that route yet. Whether it be cloning this install and using it as a test bed, using my other resources to install development environments or whatever, if you are willing to lead me in the right direction and offer some guidance sign up below!! My first priority for me is to get this backed up so If I screw it up I can get back again. Next would be a pretty huge one, I had created a HFS+ Partition on my windows drive at some point for some storage away fro my install drive. Well now if I have that drive in the computer during boot the boot fails when it mounts that partition, just freezes. Happens that the name of the partition is “USB” because it started as a clone of a good install media. …Anyway. I’ve got a handful of resources thatI’ve collected which include both HP’s last bios for this machine and the most recent update which was a security fix for the UEFI system, A copy of the rom for the romless video card in the machine. If Everything goes right, access to both a Mac environment and a Windows 7 environment, Familiarity with the linux command shell and bash stuff in general, willingness to set up anything else needed to help on this end. Don’t even care if I ever get that far, just want to be able to boot both Windows 7 and this version at least of OS X ( Hopefully with at least a little VA) Consistently and safely for the machine. Please provide links for anything that you can right off hand, otherwise I’ll gladly do the legwork. Thanks for any help, and I’ll gladly provide any info to help any other user along, at your own risk of course.
  6. Yes Read the Guide #2 referenced in the OSX 10.10.1 announcement. You need transmac which is included in the download link at the top of the announcement page. The guides cover how to get where you need to be.
  7. Boot normally (not safe mode) except add -v at the boot options, you won't get that, you will get the boot process spelled out in text. You will see where it stops and be able to use the information presented to track down the problem.
  8. I had a hard time for a while, followed the guides and made a usb install using TransMac and the Yosemite-Zone 10.10 files and used the boot codes as follows "Kernel Cache"=/hp -v -x Used that on an HP Elitebook 8760W. Still trying to figure out the dsdt things and the .kext files I need, but it boots and works on the ethernet. Haven't tested too many things yet as I still have a lot of reading to do. Not sure if you got the part about an empty drive. You have to pick a partition and format it in windows, then in my computer/manage/storage you have to mark the partition as active.
