Hi guys, I am new to the whole Hackintosh thing, and I was hoping you guys could help me with my first endeavor.

I would like to install OSX Lion or Mountain Lion on A Thinkpad T430 with the following specs:
Intel HD 4000 GPU
i5 3210m 2.5 GHz
4GB of RAM

I was hoping you could tell me if my Hardware is compatible, and how I should install OSX for best results.

I also have a 15" 2010 Macbook Pro running Lion, so even if installation on my Laptop requires a Mac that won't be a problem. Thanks!
(I heard that there will be issues with stock Wifi card, but I want to know about the procedure before buying an Atheros card)

Hey 2014,

Did you manage to make it run?

I have a T430S (it has Intel HD 4000 + Nvidia Optimus NVS 5200M) and I can't seem to make it work.
