Update 2: Here are 2 EFI folders from the comments. I haven’t tested these, all credits to the commenters. Thanks!

Update: The macOS Sierra 10.12.4 update breaks backlight brightness control. See below for fixes.

Just in time for April Fools’ day, got a new hackintosh working. And this one even looks like a MacBook Pro!

I present to you, the EliteBook “Pro” (9470m).

EliteBook “Pro” 9470m. Please excuse the messy desktop icons.

The EliteBook 9470m was, if I recall correctly, HP’s second Ultrabook, and their first true “Enterprise” Ultrabook – that is, one with docking capability and easy field repairability . You can find a full review over at NotebookCheck.net.  It was pretty popular with businesses who wanted to give their employees a more affordable and more IT-friendly “MacBook-like” device. Also, it was released back in late 2012, which is just over 4 years ago as of this writing. (Crazy! Time flies.) This means that they can be had relatively cheap in the off-lease market today, as the typical computer lease is between 3-5 years. My local computer store is selling them for under $400, which is a pretty good value in my opinion.

These days, installing macOS is relatively easy compared to 10-12 years ago when I first started messing with Hackintosh/OSx86, so I’ll just post my Clover “EFI” folder which should get you booted into macOS Sierra on the 1366×768 version of the 9470m. I did also swap out the Intel WiFi card for a Dell DW 1510 which works out-of-the-box.

Download my Clover EFI folder (zip 19MB): EFI 3  See below for 10.12.4 brightness fix

Working:

  • Internal graphics with full acceleration, brightness control using scroll lock/pause-break keys
  • Sound via VoodooHDA (built-in mic, speakers as well as TRRS headset jack. Volume and Mute fix in Info.plist necessary)
  • Touchpad with 2-finger scroll
  • Internal PS/2 keyboard
  • 3 USB 3.0 ports
  • Wired gigabit Ethernet
  • WiFi (replacement DW 1510 Broadcom card)
  • Built-in webcam

Not working:

  • Sleep (wakes up instantly)
  • Original Intel 6235 WiFi + Bluetooth
  • TrackPoint/Nub/Nipple mouse
  • Validity Fingerprint reader
  • WiFi on/off button

Not tested (yet):

  • Docking
  • VGA-out
  • DisplayPort-out
  • HDMI Audio
  • SD Card Reader

I will updated the lists as I test more things.

Main reference for this was RehabMan’s Elitebook guide.

10.12.4 Backlight Brightness control fix

Download updated EFI folder (zip 19MB): EFI 10.12.4

Fixes included:

  • Removed NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
  • Updated VoodooHDA.kext/Contents/Info.plist to include Mute Fix
  • Added SSDT-PNLF.aml in ACPI/patched as per guide
  • Edited config.plist to load SSDT-PNLF.aml
  • Fixed backlight control (using this guide)
    • Re-patched DSDT in MacIASL with the following fixes only from “RehabMan-Laptop”:
      • battery_HP-ProBook-4x0s-G1.txt
      • graphics_Rename-GFX0.txt
      • graphics_HD4K_low.txt

    Hey, thanks for the EFI directory. With vanilla 10.12 it works great!

    Was there anything else required to get brightness controls working? For one reason or another, using that EFI 10.12.4 directory doesn’t allow be to control brightness with the keyboard, and no brightness options are listed under System Preferences -> Display either.

    I made some modifications to address the following:

    Boot screen graphical corruption
    Audio
    Screen brightness
    Power management/Speedstep

    EFI Folder here

    I’m using an HP branded Bcm943225hmb which gives both wifi and bluetooth no issue

      Also, the OP’s issue with sleep and wifi button may be related to the card he’s using – sleep works perfectly for me, as does the wifi/bluetooth hardware button.

      I tried to get AppleALC working for a more native audio solution, but it would only playback through headphones instead of internal speakers. It also caused some weird shutdown issues for me.

      Sticking with VoodooHDA in EFI for now.

        Thanks for sharing, I’ll try out your fixes on my machine. Do you mind if I mirror your EFI folder in the post for the sake of completeness?

          Sure, go right ahead.

          I discovered after another clean install that screen brightness still doesn’t work…. I think it has something to do with the VoodooHDA installation. I’ll have to do some more testing on that

            Figured it out brightness!

            Here’s the steps I took after a fresh install:

            Mount EFI partition, copy over contents of downloaded EFI

            Install latest Clover EFI package with “Install only in ESP” and osxaptiofix2drv selected

            Run Kext Utility, wait till it finishes processing, reboot. Brightness adjustment should work after that.

            I suspect it’s repairing permissions or updating some of the cache files that makes the difference, but for me it’s just easier to run kext utility and have it do all of that for me.

            Note that no kexts are actually being installed in the last step, the utility just repairs some permissions/caches.

      Hi C.P, do you get problem while using bluetooth? When I connect speaker via bluetooth, the wifi is automatically turn off and no way to turn it on. After a reboot, wifi works again. I’m using same Bcm943225hmb card like you.

    Hi! I’ve already installed Sierra on my 9470m but I’m still missing the post installation process. Can I simply copy your EFI folder in to my hard drive? Thanks

      Yes ,
      1- install clover to be able to boot from your new mac (i mean without flash memory)
      2- mount the EFI Partition
      3- copy the EFI folder content to your mounted EFI Partition
      4- restart you new mac, enjoy .

          If you’re using 1600×900, I updated DSDT for support this resolution.

            Hi, do you plan to update on High Sierra/Sierra? Is everything working for you so far? I wanna to hackintosh this laptop too, as I have Windows 10 here right now, using 1600×900 resolution too.

            In other words, what are your issues with this hackintosh build, so I will now if it’s even worth. Thank you!

            After replaced wifi card to a BCM943225HMB, I’m using El Capitan and Sierra perfectly. There’s a very small issue that I cannot turn off bluetooth, but it doesn’t matter. Everything works smoothly: wifi, external display (Display Port), sound, battery. I’m developing hybrid app for iOS and Android with no issue.
            Now I stay with Sierra, I’ll try to install High Sierra later.

            Okay, thank you. One more question, when I install macOS (high sierra probably), all I have to do to have all patches and fixes is to load your EFI which you linked above? Thanks.

            Oh…and is your wifi card with bluetooth 4.0?

            Yes, put my EFI folder into EFI partition. After a fresh install, you should rebuild cache using Kext Wizard. I don’t know if it works on High Sierra. It can be used for ElCapitan and Sierra.
            I’m not sure BCM943225HMB has Bluetooth 4.0. You can do some search.

          You should check here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/how-to-create-a-macos-high-sierra-public-beta-installation-usb.225520/

          In part “STEP 2: Prepare Bootable USB Drive”, you follow to step 12, stop at “13. Download the latest version of Clover”. You do follow steps instead:
          13. Download Clover Configurator
          14. Mount EFI partition of USB drive
          15. Replace EFI folder in EFI partition
          16. Reboot, type F9, choose booting from EFI file, navigate to EFI\Clover\CLOVERX64.ef
          17. Install High Sierra
          If you’re no luck installing on new APFS, try to use Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

            sudo nano Info.plist
            3. Press CONTROL-W (^W for search) and search for the string “VoodooHDAEnableVolumeChangeFix” (without the quotes). Change the value from false to true. Save the file.

            What did you get while installing? I’m using it for High Sierra, see my browser’s agent above?

    How much battery life are you getting?
    I’m getting mere 1 hour battery life.

    I am using EFI folder link of which you have posted in the article.

    I noticed the activity monitor crashes if you go to Energy tab and refuses to open unless you delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.ActivityMonitor.plist

    Does this mean there’s problem in power-management?

    I have Elitebook 9470m with 1366×786 resolution. CoconutBattery tells me my battery capacity is 2187mAH. Voltage is 16683 mV, putting my battery at 36.5 Whr but isn’t the battery supposed to be 52 Whr?

    Intel Power Gadget app tells me my CPU and GPU vary their frequency (GHz) depending on processing load, so CPU and GPU power management is somewhat right but why such low battery life? Can we modify something to get more battery life? How much battery life others are getting?

    Hey Matthieu,

    Thanks for the files.
    How did you get the webcam support working?
    I also followed RehabMans guide and got everything working except the webcam and mic.
    Did you also get the broadband module working?

      For microphone issue, try some options in System Preferences -> Sound -> Input.
      Webcam works by default to me
      I did make my WWAN work once as follow this guide, but now it stops working, I don’t know why. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/elitebook-bcm20702a0-wwan-gps-hspa-minipci-e-un2430-gobi300.186510/

        Thanks for the reply.
        I see my microphone under Sound but it doesn’t work.
        I plugged in some microphone capable speakers but they also don’t work.
        My WWAN works when I boot from the Clover USB Stick I created but then everything else doesn’t…
        Camera still doesn’t work :/
        Bluetooth also doesn’t work with the Broadcom WiFi+Bluetooth Card but WiFi does.
