How To Make A Perfect MacBook Air 5,2 From HP Ivy Bridge HD4000 Laptop

Someone asked me how to make a Windows ivy bridge laptop into an almost perfect MacBook Air 5,2. Ivy Bridge is Intel 3rd generation with HD4000 graphics chipset, the CPU usually starts with a 3 like i5-3317u or i3-33xx or i7-3xxx.

I have an Envy 4-1117nr 14″ very small and light with i5-3317u with resolution 1366×768. I would like to have 1600×900 or 1920×1080 resolutions, but I didn’t. Anyhow, this post will show how I get my laptop to dual boot Yosemite 10.10.5 and Windows 10 perfectly with Clover boot loader.

In order to have native wifi and bluetooth, the original Ralink or Intel wifi module must be replaced with an Atheros wifi combo or Broadcom wifi combo. Some handy skills required.

These are some of my files for yosemite, and these are files for older os x and these are files for El Capitan 10.11.x, but they’re almost identical.
