My first Hackintosh, and it was a nightmare haha, but after 2 weeks of reading and learning how this all works I've figured out not only how to get this OS to work flawlessly on an HP laptop, but also learnt how to edit DSDT and kexts to make stuff work, awesome learning curve, if you have any problems with external display inject    

   

<key>NVCAP_0a2c</key>

        <string>04000000000003007C0000000000000A00000000</string>
 
into your charmeleon boot loader and your displayport will work.
 
For ricoh card reader download the driver off hackintosh zone.
For working power management look up DSDT patches
For touchpad look up voodoo ps2
 
When installing Niresh's build of mavericks do not select battery monitor from laptop menu, creates a kernel panic that renders even safe mode useless.
 
For battery monitor download the kext from hackintosh zone
 
I have decided to stay with 10.9 instead of upgrade just due to the hassle of getting the usb drivers working again, too many conflicts after the update and not enough time to sort them out, all i need this computer for is logic pro and final cut so I don't really care about updates.
 
Hope this helped someone, give me a yell if you need any pointers cheers!
