This is a tutorial to install mac osx 10.10 yosemite on hp 440 g2 laptop and also to make it dual boot with a windows 8 or later.

The hp 440 g2 i am using here runs on amd redeon graphics and intel hd 4400.

 If your laptop has both Intel HD and AMD graphics card, AMD graphics card will not be usable in OS X.

Distorted bootscreen (verbose mode and the spinning wheel/progress bar) with hp 440 g2 laptop using 1366x768 display + UEFI native (without CSM) setting. Changing Clover resolution to 1024x768, or enable UEFI Hybrid (with CSM) can fix it, although the boot logo will be stretched.

Before reading this guide, please note:
  • Everything is included in the guide, so if you have problem, read the guide carefully again or search in the guide. DON'T BE IGNORANCE!
  • If you follow the guide and have problems, please post your questions along the troubleshooting files. I CAN'T ANSWER WITHOUT THEM!
  • HACKINTOSH IS NOT FOR LAZY PEOPLE

For a University Laptops Remove Domain First!!

Please take a full backup of your pc in some external hard drive or friends laptop before starting!!!

If you can't get to installer:

First, try other usb ports and another flash drive.

If you're still unable to boot, it means that you copied wrong config.plist, or place config.plist incorrectly.
