I'm about to buy a Lenovo Z560 with the following specs:
Processor: Core i3 380M
Memory: 4gb DDR3 1066Mhz
Geforce 310M

Here it is:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16834146985

How would I go about getting a DSDT for this particular model?

Also I'm really sorry. I'm a complete noob when it comes to DSDT's. I've had a couple hackintosh laptops and desktops before, but I've never had to mess with the DSDT, so does anyone else have this model laptop? Or could lead me in the right direction for getting this fully working?

Also, what's the best external wireless solution to get? Could I just get a USB wifi dongle for it? Would that work fine?

I exchanged my internal wireless without any hassle! Just loosen two screws and get rid of the old one... was a 10 min job
The Mini PCI card only cost me like 10 Euros or so (WLAN Atheros AR5BXB6)

You could extract the dsdt with Windows 7 (Everest Pro) and then ask Mald0n if he can patch it for you. At least thats what I did...
There is also a dsdt for i3 z560 on tonymac!

So, is there a list of compatible internal wireless cards? How do I know which ones will work or not? Also, with the screws, do I need a certain type of screwdriver? Or is it the size of screw where most normal screwdrivers would work?

Ah ok, cool, so do I just use the Everest Pro you mentioned? Or do I use Maldon's Auto Patcher?
Yes, I've seen the dsdt for the i3 on here, but it was an i3-430(or 450)M while mine is 480M (not sure if that makes a difference) and was for 2gb of RAM.

i guess you could try maldons auto patcher but as i remember it didnt have the info for the z560 in there back when i checked...

for wireless cards... i just followed someone elses advice and bought the atheros card. it works like a treat, no wireless n though... here is an ebay link
For my card I had to patch one file so if you decide to buy it and it doesnt work oob just ask me. for most people it works right away though!
I didn't use any special screwdrivers... I just have a standard scredriver bit set like this one

Alright, I got the z560 with the i3 380M Processor, 310M Graphics, 500gb hard drive, 4gb RAM.
I have OSX installed perfectly, except for 2 things that I can notice immediately.

My ethernet and trackpad do not work.

So my question is how did you others get your trackpad to work? It seems like I've tried everything, but what'd you guys do to get yours working?

Alright thanks, I'll try that. What about audio? I tried the kext for z560 posted previously, however, still no luck.

Has ANYONE been brave enough to try Lion on this laptop yet? I'm really curious... Oh, and I finally got my laptop completely working (as far as I can tell), although I'm not sure how lol. Ethernet, built in wireless, QE/CI, audio, trackpad, keyboard, etc. it's all working

I have been working on some laptop issues over the weekend and wanted to know if somebody came up with a solution:

1. HDMI Audio - Apparently it should be easy to get HDMI Audio working with Voodoo but I only have Headphones and Mic in Sound Preferences. An alternative would be to use a patched AppleHDA but I assume this doesnt work for our chipset. In Win7 HDMI Audio works so there must be a way!

2. Hibernation - Apparently this is working for N One but even with his DSDT, kexts, boot.plist and smbios it's not working for me. If you want to try out if its working
Go to terminal enter: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
In Security tab in System Preferences disable "Use secure virtual memory"
Install http://deepsleep.free.fr/

For me it goes to sleep and its waking up but no USB devices are detected anymore after hibernation

Would there be a change, if any, to use this guide with an Lenovo Z560 that uses a 480M processor instead of the 430M?

I have everything working except for multi gestures via the trackpad. I had to actually remove the voodoops2trackpad from voodoops2controller in order to get my trackpad to work.

Anyone know how to get the trackpad to work properly?

ughhhhhhh, i'm also getting kernel panics when i use ethernet.

any ideas? anyone?

My specs are Lenovo IdeaPad Z560 0914-4GU - i5-480M 4GB/128GB SSD G310M

Yurick, can you please explain what this is meant for ?

- To adress the hdmi sound out problem only
- Is this to replace VoodooHDA ?

- will this work with AppleHDA when added to dsdt (without voodoohda?) ?

Thx
