Hi!
I need help with my Lenovo B570 (intelB940, 3Gb DDR3 GMA3000+nvidia m410) On this laptop may installed many hackintosh disk": Lion, MountLionDP3, but there are loaded only with -x flag. With any flags I see white screen with kursor and..NOTHING. I'm not beginner with hackintosh, but I was suffer with Lenovo for 2 weeks (changed kexts,smbios,DSDT). Please help, who knows how solve this problem:



sorry for my bad english.


The B940 does not have the intel HD3000 but rather the HD 2000. That HD 2000 is not found in macs, and does not work well/if at all for a hackintosh.

Update to 10.7.4 Today

Things are looking good. :thumbsup_anim:

I haven't found any issues yet.

Remember to reinstall important kexts as mentioned in this thread to avoid a KP.

I had to reinstall the wifi kext as well. I am using the one Gokul mentioned eariler.

10.7.4 reporting here as well. Running great. Remember to use the Combo update on Apple's website as opposed to Software Update from the menu bar...
The Combo update failed for me a few times but I just ran it again until it completed successfully. Might have been a hard drive issue.

Here's all my System/Library/Extensions
Here's my current org.chameleon.boot.plist
Will add a new post with updated versions soon.

If you're running a SSD, you will have re-enable Trim

Update

Deleting bluetooth devices in your system configuration and then re-adding them seems to work. Now happily using 10.7.4 with my bluetooth mouse. :)

Update II

Having IntelCPUMonitor.kext in S/L/E causes instant reboots. You have to delete the kext before update.


Don't install 10.7.4 if you're using bluetooth!

Made a test-drive with my rescue system and it is true what you can read around the web: I'm experiencing great problems with my bluetooth device. Cannot connect to my mouse anymore. Connection is very unstable.
I would recommend to wait for a fix for this issue if you depend on bluetooth. If you don't need it, it is safe to update.

Recently upgraded ram from stock to 8gigs. This was the last thing I did, besides SSDT.aml. I'm having trouble with Disk Utility. I can open the app, but nothing will load and I only get the floating beach ball. Any ideas?

Deleted the SSDT.aml and put the original DSDT.aml and was able to get Disk Utility to start. I thought I got better battery life with SSDT, but I must have don't something wrong when I made changes. I'd rather disk utility accessible than a longer batter life. Will try and experiment

DDST and SSDT are not the same thing at all. Most people have both.
SSDT is specialized only for the processor and DSDT is usually for the rest of the system..

Updated SSDT for all i5 CPU's attached - better (processor states, geekbench score, etc) - [attachment=110588]

Also, just a personal update - I found that UseKernelCache=No actually gives more artifacts, so I suggest changing it to UseKernelCache=Yes just like macinsane has it in the OP. Sorry for recommending that before. I've also since reverted back to older FakeSMC because I'm waiting for the definitive HD3000 fix that will remove all artifacts.

Other than that, 10.7.4 running smooth right now.

Unfortunately the CPUMonitor kext wasn't the cause of my reboots. I have to boot in verbose mode to get the system running, normal boot doesn't work. Someone on this forum did a clean reinstall to solve this, but this is no solution for me. Because on the one hand I want to know what causes this and on the other hand a complete new setup of my system would take hours if not days. Has anyone any suggestions?

Same thing had happened to me. It seems there is a kext that was causing problems with the cache or something.
Remove IntelThermal.kext if you have it - that was the cause for me. After removing, do an empty (with no kext files on the desktop) kextbeas t run (not 'kext utility'!)
I would also remove and minimize any extra kexts in the S/L/E folder that are not super important at all.

You can try:
Revert back to FakeSMC v3 like I have.


Links:
New S/L/E from 10.7.4 and /Extra folder for any comparison and repair.

Greetings, bit confused as to how to remove/replace the wireless card. I've got a new Atheros replacing my Broadcom 1341, and I've located the housing on the back. Just don't want to break the darn thing.(http://imageshack.us...94/photohj.jpg/) Thanks! ssprod

Just remove the two antenna wires carefully and then remove the screw and voila you can pull out the wireless card

I tried to upgrade to 10.7.4 but had the continual reboot problem and could only boot in using -v mode. The only way I was able to stop the reboot process when I added NullCPUPowermanagement - which of course eliminated all my power management features, sleep etc. I tried the recommendation of deleting intelcpumonitor but that didn't help. I have a B570 with a i3 - and the following DSDT

Seems to be a bigger problem here...
Thanks Gokul for your recommendations but they didn't work for me. Still can boot in verbose mode only. I'm using the power management kext from 10.7.0 (or was it 10.7.1? The 166 version...) by the way, because newer patched kexts lead to kernel panics on my Lenovo. Bajabronco may have pointed in the right direction, but: how can it be, that the machine boots up normally in verbose mode when it is a power management issue? Does anyone know how the boot process in verbose mode differs from the normal boot in that particular case?

iFreak - what processor do you have in your B570? What does your DSDT.aml look like? does sleep work for you without the sleep enabler kext?

I have the DSDT from this site without WLAN. Processor is i3 2330m and Sleep works without Enabler.
Edit: And I am using the SSDT from here

No luck here - tried Ifreak's AICPM kext - got kernel panics, - tried using the 10.7.4 kext and editing with the patcher = kernel panic. Only way it will boot correctly in 10.7.4 is with the nullCPUPM kext.
