HP 9470m working on Monterey.
Kudos to opencore and hackintosh107 for his upgrade to Big Sur

Bluetooth fixed with BlueToolFixup.kext and enable only AirPortBrcmNIC_Injector.kext

Congrats. I'm doing the same with the same laptop type. Have you used HD4000Patch?

I have not updated my 9470m to Monterey 12.0.1 because the latest OCLP v0.7.5 does not allow me to pick my system volume to patch for ivy bridge.

this computer model is obsolete now. I found a refurbished model of it and it had DOS operating system loaded.
Could you suggest to me a pc/laptop that is fully compatible with mac os Monterey?
It would be a great help.

The hardware you have in your profile is fully compatible with macOS Monterey. You just have to patch GT710.

TL;DR I successfully clean installed my HP9470m to Monterey 12.3.1. But apps like WhatsApp and VS Code crashed as shown below and battery management is not working.

One step forward, two steps back.
So, I clean installed Monterey 12.2.1 instead.
Checkout Working EFI

This laptop with SMBIOS iMac16,1 cannot be upgraded to Monterey 12.2.1 with OC 0.7.2. It always stuck with a prompt that “a required firmware update could not be installed” during installation. Strangely, it cannot boot up with a usb installer with OC 0.7.3 and above.

After reading the successful installation of Monterey and Big Sur by @Sirsasana and @Robbish respectively on their ivy bridge desktop, I decided to tinker it by changing SMBIOS to iMac17,1 which was selected by @Sirsasana.
I noticed that the latest genSMBIOS gathers macserial info from OC 0.7.9

So I updated the USB installer with OC 0.7.9 and kexts. I was delighted that it can boot as iMac17,1 with VirtualSMC.kext. My previous Monterey beta installation required FakeSMC.kext in order to boot.

Rename Monterey System Volume name with Disk Utility. According to @miliuco, the workaround is to install Intel Power Gadget in order to update both the OC boot menu entry and the preboot volume with new name.

Battery indicator works more consistently on laptop SMBIOS. I choose SMBIOS MacBookPro13,1 in order for battery indicator to work. I have to revert to MacOS Monterey 12.2.1 because many apps like Whatsapp and VSCode crashed on Monterey 12.3.1 (clean installed or upgraded) with OC 0.8.0 and latest kexts.

Anyway, I have updated EFI
