Trying to install any OSX on HP 4540s

Recommended Posts

I haven't got to the stage of installing yet.  I can't get the Mavericks Restore package to write the Mavericks dmg to my USB chips.

Everything worked fine writing High Sierra to USB chip, but the installation onto disk failed time after time, and I had nothing to bring to the forum, so I decided to lower my sights and go for Mavericks.  I have downloaded the Mavericks dmg and the Mavericks Restore package, placed them in the same directory, reformated my USB chip (I've tried two, one 8 GB the other 16 GB and the one I got a working HS install on), run Mavericks Restore, it goes through the motions, reports Done, and then when I check the USB chip I find that a) the partition is unmounted although it was mounted at the start and 'b) there is nothing on the USB chip.  I must have run Mavericks restore about six or seven times, on the two chips, with different configurations, GUID, MBR and Apple whatever-it-is without any change.  I've downloaded Mavericks Restore a second time with no other result.  I'm a bit surprised how small it is - only about 7 kb, and I can't find anything resembling code in there.

So what's to try now?

    • Hi, 
      I finally decided to install macOS high sierra on my laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad 720S 15IKB.
      It has:   i5-7300HQ, Intel HM175
      12GB DDR4 RAM
      A Samsung 256GB NVMe Drive
      GTX 1050 Ti With Max-Q   The first try did not boot so i had to use some args to get it to boot. The first problem arises due to the fact that all available usb slots are usb 3.1. The installer did not recognise my keyboard and trackpad and i had to install some kexts to get them working. Well, after i intalled the kexts, It was stuck in a boot loop. I was fed up and it was late so i decided to download hackintosh zone from niresh. I would install it later. Well, when i run hackintosh zone it gets stuck at the apple logo after loading. I ran it in verbose mode and it gets stuck in the following   [Date] localhost com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] <Error>: Host-level exception raised: pid = 541, thread = 0xbf1f, exception type = 0xd, codes = { 0 }, states = { 0 }
      busy timeout[0], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[1], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[2], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'   Then the screen goes blank and it starts over. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
    • ASUS laptop X550D can run hackintosk ? help me ! please!!!   thanks alot
    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.
