Sebster,

I am going to do all of it again. Thank you for the KEXT and the KEXTWIZARD. I got the APPLE Wireless card, but the morons sent me the two-connector one...not the three---have to send it back.

I ultimately want a WIN7 - OSX dual boot machine...going to buy a 120GB or 160GB SSD this weekend...and put in my BlueTooth module....then I can have the best of the best dual boot W7/Hackintosh. ;-)

I need to be 100% on the proper procedure for the dual boot....I know I read in the previos posts that the HDD has to be formatted MBR, I take it using the MAC DISK UTIL, and only 2 partitions? or do you need to have 3 or 4, as Windows 7 creates its own hidden partition. And I know it Windows needs to be installed first.

*BH*

p.s. Would love to test out your guide. As I said earlier, ultimately I would like to have Snow Leopard, not Lion. For what I do, at my job / Lion does not work well when doing SCAN TO FOLDER or even transferring files from a Windows machine to the MAC. I am an educator at my job, and rather than have to move the MACs for training...would rather have the dual boot machine.

Bearhntr28,
That sounds like a good idea. By the time the SSD and Wireless Card come, I should have my guide up and If its easier to read/comprehend that one then you can use that to dualboot and get OS X on your Thinkpad. I will be explaining everything step-by-step and everything you can do to troubleshoot something if it does not work, etc. I think it might be more suitible for you, I will be posting the link once I finish it. I know you will like it, its very in-depth and I put continuous hours and hours of effort and time into it for others to enjoy :) In the meantime, i recommend getting ahold of a copy of Lion 10.7.5 or download a torrent of the InstallESD for 10.7.5. That way, you can use that so that you have no problems if you decide to try out or look at my guide.

p.s. it takes quite some effort to get a snow leopard hackintosh working, as snow leopard is very incompatible with most hackintosh's and you would have to spend countless days trying to find proper kexts and stuff for it to work properly. Maybe you could try Lion and if its just not good enough, you could always reinstall OS X and you won't lose your Windows 7 data or partition.

p.p.s. About the procedure for dualboot, use Disk Utility from the OS X Installation flashdrive and make 2 partitions on your hard drive, both on the GUID partitioning scheme. Make one Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) and the second MS-DOS for the second partition. Once you get into the Windows 7 setup, format the MS-DOS partition to NTFS and by default, Windows 7 will create its own System Reserved 100mb hidden partition, but just ignore that, your perfectly fine. And you are correct, Windows must be installed in order to get Chameleon Bootloader. :)

sebster,

I must apologize. I have been away so long. Lots of things all happened at once. Changes at wor, end of fiscal year at work, busy things around the house (with the onset of Spring), and then I forgot to purchase the new WiFi Apple card.

The T61 is all ready to go ecept for the WiFi Card. I has Windows 7 installed (I even upgraded the HDD to a SDD - Ghosted the HDD to the SDD). All is great.

Loking forward to getting back to this project within the next couple weeks. Hopefully you will still be around. Maybe your guide will be out, too.

Much Thanks,

*BH*

Husaber/Sebster,

Wireless Atheros AR5B91-Recommeneded for Upgrade with patched BIOS without whitelist!

I have found the following differences:

Apple Atheros AR5008 AR5418 AR5BXB72 603-9432-A

Brand: Atheros
Model: AR5BXB72 / AR5008
P/N: 603-9432-A / 607-0368-A / A1181
BIOS: Apple Ver (Use only in Apple Laptop)
Wireless Type: 802.11n (XSPAN 300MB)
Connectors: 3

==================================
Apple MacBook Pro A1150 Wifi Wireless Card 603-8214-A

Brand: Atheros
Model: AR5424a / AR5006EXS / AR5BXB6
P/N: 603-8214-A / A1150 / A1181
BIOS: Apple Ver (Fit all laptop brands: DELL, IBM, HP - upgraded BIOS)
Wireless Type: 802.11 Super A/G (108MB)
Connectors: 2
----------------------------------------------
My question is, will the 802.11n card (even though it says APPLE ONLY) work in the T-61. I would prefer to make use of the Apple Atheros AR5008 AR5418 AR5BXB72 603-9432-A 3-connectors (the one in Blue) in the T61 to get full wireless speed.

Can anyone give advice before I purchase one? Perhaps I should buy both and try them both - but really hate taking the laptop apart more than I have to to try various cards.


Much thanks,
*BH*

Bearhntr28,
The Apple MacBook Pro Card will not work on the Thinkpad T61, as it only has 2 connectors, as the Thinkpad T61 has 3 connecters. The other Apple Atheros card I am not sure about. I highly recommend the MacBook A1181 AR5BXB72 wireless Apple card, as it is 100% compatible with Thinkpad T61 and works out of the box with a patched BIOS for your Thinkpad. These cards are pretty cheap and below is a link to an example of one you could purchase on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/...=item416dfe04a8
If you do not wish to buy the card on ebay, the right card you should buy is called the Apple MacBook A1181 AR5BXB72 Wireless Card. I assure you it works as I have tried it myself along with CoBrA2168, also on InsanelyMac forums. I am not sure if Husaber is using this exact card, but I assure you it works.

P.S.- My guide should be posted in 1-2 weeks time

Sebster,

OKAY. I just bought a AR5BXB72 from eBay. Should be here mid-week next week.

How goes your OSX LION Guide? I was also looking at CoBrA's guide. Nicely written. Only thing missing is pictures. ;-)

Hi, I have a thinkpad serie 7659-a92, but following all the steps, to start usb, when it should load the graphical interface for the Disk Manager, the screen stays black. When connecting to an external monitor, fail to see that the interface starts correctly, because I see the bottom of Mac OS, but I can not access its functions, because they are on thinkpad screen. Any suggestions on this matter?.
Sorry for the translation, I'm using the google translator

Hello Lukazz,
Could you take a few pictures and upload them showing me the problem? It would help as I am not familiar with this certain problem. Does it get past the Apple Logo + spinner? or when you boot from the USB it stays at a black screen? Or have you gotten past the installer and are having problems starting OS X itself, because i am a little confused as you said that you see the bottom of Mac OS, meaning you have installed the OS. If you upload a picture of the problem it would really help me troubleshoot it if possible. Thanks

Hi HUSABER!

First, I must say thankyou very much. Follow your guide, I installed 10.7.4 successfully on my T61. But I don't understand from "SUMMARY OF MY STUFF". You talk about kexts in S/L/E but they are stock 10.7.4 kext or your patched kexts, because in your guide I can't see any step that saying change kexts or something like that, just copying. If those are you patched kexts, so where I can download them.

Thanks!
