Hackintosh on HP EliteDesk 800 G1, i5-4570

Note: this will probably work for other EliteDesk Towers, Small Form 
Factor and Ultra Small Form Factor

1. Installed Sierra from a real MAC to the hard drive going into the HP EliteDesk 800 G1
2. Installed Clover v4061 from real MAC to hard disk
       Bootloader - Install boot0af in MBR
       CloverEFI - CloverEFI 64-bits SATA
       Drivers64UEFI - OsxAptioFixDrv-64
       Install all RC scripts on target volume
       Install Clover Preference Pane
Used Clover Configurator to Edit config.plist but see below for the code
4 Added the following Kext's to \EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other
5 Sound working with VoodooHDA 2.8.9 Clover-V6

Important for video HD4600







  1. It would be nice if you can provide the whole step or links too.

  2. Thanks for the feedback, all of these files can be download from, you can register a free account that will give you access.

    The only files needed to download is Clover, and the two KEXT's,
    once you have those you are good to go. I have a real Mac so installing without one is a much more intensive process but that is all document on that site.

  3. Hi! I follow your steps, but doesn't work.
    First: Can´t install clover in the real mac... How you doing?
    and, I try to boot with this data in the config.plist but the video doesn't work, and reboot...
    Can you help me with more information?
    Thank bro!

  4. Hi unknown, if you have a real Mac, install OS X from the real Mac using a USB to SATA and select the hard disk that is going into the HP, you download clover but select the external drive you installed and select customize and select the option that I gave, then install the kext's and make sure you have use the config.plist that I have posted

  5. Thanks for answer Don!
    I follow your instruction, and install Clover with a SATA-USB. (With your options)
    Copy two files in the \EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other
    Edit the config.plist with you post
    power on....
    but no....
    just I see ++++++++++++++++++++++++ and reboot again.
    I use Display Port, no VGA.
    Try with many boot flags but don´t work..
    Can you post the entire config list?
    Another idea?
    Thanks again Don!!!!!
