hello there,

im about to buy this LENOVO Z360

http://www.notebooks...b platte nvidia

... but it would be nice to hear some experiences if any of you got this machine. the specs are pretty nice and it looks a bit like a macbook pro :D ... the i5 version is one of the cheapest i5 solutions in 13" notebooks. i would like to know if AHCI is present in bios (efi) and if the nvidia, the sound, the wlan, BT and so on is "fixable" the way i know it. i had some hackbooks so im no complete noob - i just wanna hear some of your experiences / thoughts about that thing :(

got this thing ... VERY nice thing :) but no osx 86 runnin yet.

i tried to install 10.6.3 retail via ##### but that thing ended in kernel panics. then i installed retail 10.6.3 on the internal HD by connecting it to a real mac via usb. installed update 10.6.5 and tried myhackinstaller and ##### - with no luck. the b*tch is booting (-x -v) until this points:

launchctl: please convert the fallowing to launchd : ...
systemShutdown false
Waiting for DSMOS ...
Previous Shutdown Cause: 0
FakeSMC: key info not found MSDS, lenght - 6
ACPI-SMC_PlatformPlugin: start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out
DSMOS has arrived
FakeSMC: key not found BEMB, lenght - 1

here it stops doin anything. using vanilla kernel and NO gfx enabler (gfx disabler to force vesa does the same error)

so does anyone have an idea?

i guess i found the problem:

Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) No
Intel® Trusted Execution Technology No
AES New Instructions No

so - this is it ...

These parameters can't be changed, right, so it was a no-go for OSX86?

THERE IS SOME PROGRESS - some good / some bad. i hope one of the gurus may help here - cause its a NICE notebook:

- you can boot the RETAIL 10.6.3 with NAWCOMS MOD CD (USE MODBIN KERNEL!)
http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=446
you have to uncheck everything you can! (also all the nawcom mods provided)

- after install boot again with the dvd and just chose your HD (automaticly with legacy kernel)

- now install 10.6.5 and DONT reboot

- copy the attached dsdt.aml (THANX TO ASCHAR) to desktop - use ##### and install:
http://tonymacx86.bl...stallation.html
DSDT USER
USB REWIND TO 10.6.3 (to have usb in 10.6.5)
NULLCPUPOWERMANAGEMENT

- now you have vanilla with only 2 kexts loaded: fakesmc and nullcpupowermangtment (thats nice)

-> now - you can boot vanilla kernel until DSMOS has arrived - then the screen will kinda freeze without panic and the HD will load on ... thats all for now ...

the DEV ID of the nvidia is: 0a70 - the DEV ID of the intel HD graphic: 0046
the build in WIFI is: AR9285 and this IS compatible looking at this post:
http://osx86.co/f36/...-leopard-t6662/
maybe one can do a DSDT fix for that one ... would be cool

also in the attachment: a version of chameleon with the DEV ID 0a70 compiled in the GFX enabler section (thanx again, ASCHAR) - but i dont know if this did anything to move forward ...

Hey,

it would be really cool if you'd update this thread as soon as you found something out. I got a Lenovo Z360, too (but the i3 version), and it would be awesome if Snow Leopard worked with it :whistle:

Thanks! Exo

my z360 is booting :)

created an installation usb stick with:
- snow leopard 10.6.3 retail
- modbin kernel from nawcoms mod cd
- nullcpupowermanagement.kext
- fakesmc.kext
- dsdt.aml from above
- chameleon bootloader with the nvidia dev id

--> the dev id within the bootloader isnt working, still 1024x768 resolution

gonna try patching to 10.6.5 and get the rest working
