Battery Status on HP-8470p with macOS 10.13


Hi there,

(Sorry if I am making any mistake. Its my first post, so please pardon me and guide me to the right way)

Fortunately, I have successfully built a hackintosh with my HP Elitebook-8470p with Core i-5 3320 Ivybridge CPU.

Most hardware components are working including Graphics, DP port, Audio, Ethernet, Bluetooth, Keyboard, Touchpad, Mobile Tethering etc. The only thing that I need help on is the battery and charging status. No power related icon is shown in menu bar.

Energy Saver Perfpane always shows Current Battery Charge to 0%. Can't check the "Show battery status in menu bar", it is immediately unchecked by itself.

System report power section information is attached. It is always the same, regardless of AC charger plugged in or not.

Luckily, battery works fine, though status not shown.
I have been using Clover (Latest Edition) for EFI booting.
Actually I have triple boot setup with macOS 10.13, Windows 10 (1709) and Kali Linux on the same SATA hard drive.
