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.  Don't know what else to say, 

 

A better idea of my hardware is :

HP Elitebook 8760W

Computer:      Hewlett-Packard HP EliteBook 8760w (SP247UP#ABA)
CPU:           Intel Core i7-2860QM (Sandy Bridge-MB SV, D2)

Motherboard:   Hewlett-Packard 1630
Chipset:       Intel QM67 (Cougar Point) [B2]
Memory:        12288 MBytes @ 665 MHz, 9.0-9-9-24
               - 4096 MB PC10600 DDR3 SDRAM - SK Hynix HMT351S6BFR8C-H9
               - 4096 MB PC12800 DDR3 SDRAM - Samsung M471B5273DH0-CK0
               - 4096 MB PC12800 DDR3 SDRAM - Samsung M471B5273DH0-CK0

               ATI/AMD Radeon HD 6770M/7670M, 1024 MB GDDR5 SDRAM
Sound:         Intel Cougar Point PCH - High Definition Audio Controller [B2]
Sound:         ATI/AMD Turks/Whistler/Onega/Lombok/Thames - High Definition Audio Controller

I suggest

 

BIOS RESET

Rewrite pendrive (two times) the same pendrive

install without type /HP. (again, without)

wait until finished. if Stop 2 mins.

 

start it again.....

I've created a USB drive with Yosemite, and it boots ok in one computer, but in a HP Probook 650 G1, it freezes with the backslash symbol on the left top corner, and I'm not able to input any boot options.

 

I've tried the Unibeast USB drive and the computer reboots silently.

 

Any help please?

Maybe it has to do with the fact that the HP Probook 650 G1 doesn't have USB 2.0 ports.  All of the four ports are USB 3.0.  In other laptop, all the USB 3.0 ports aren't recognized.

I've tried the new version 10.10.1.

I need to boot it with the flags /hp or /haswell.   /hp1 doesn't work.

Now it boots, but one minute after selecting the partitition, I get this error message:

 

OS X could not be installed on your computer.

Request failed to initialize.

Quit the installer to restart your computer and try again.

 

 

My computer has Linux installed in other partitions.

I've tried other flags like -x, but the same result.

I've tried in a hard disk with no previous operating system and same result.

 

Maybe I should use some boot flag.
