Here's my last experience from installing ML 10.8.2 on Lenovo T410 notebook.
I couldn’t find any full guide for this model so decided to write one.

Model: Lenovo/ThinkPad T410 15"
GPU: Intel HD Graphics
RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333mhz (Ramaxel)
HDD: 320GB 7200RPM

Trackpad (even two finger scrolling gesture)
1280x800 resolution (the optimal for this monitor)
LAN interface
Audio ( fully working but running "sound assertion" error on system log )
Battery indicator

Not Working:
Full GFX (QE/CI)
Wifi (will never be supported)

Tools needed:
###### USB drive with the Mountain Lion 10.8 installation.
###### 5.1.3
10.8.2 Apple’s update combo
Kext kit + DSDT provided by Joshhh - Thanks!

1. Prepare ###### 10.8 drive according to this guide (perform only steps 1-2):

Link removed - Read our Rules
2. Do not eject the USB drive from the Mac it is currently on yet.
Remove all AppleIntelHD kexts from USB drive:
open terminal
cd /Volumes/USB/System/Library/Extensions (or whatever mount it is on)
mv AppleIntelHD* /var/tmp/backup

you may now eject it.

3. Stick ###### drive on Lenovo T410
boot into USB installation using following flags:

-v npci=0x2000

4. Proceed with installation process.

5. Once install is finished, and rebooted,
choose your HDD drive.
Don’t forget the npci=0x2000 flag (Step 3)

Welcome to ML - complete the first time boot process.

If OSX fails to start at this point;
Boot into single user mode ( -s )
Perform step 7 below.

6. Run the 10.8.2 Combo Update

Do not reboot when finished!

7. Remove all AppleIntelHD kexts from Mac drive:
open terminal
cd /System/Library/Extensions
mkdir /var/tmp/backup; mv AppleIntelHD* /var/tmp/backup

8. Run ###### 5.1.3
Check only “UserDSDT or DSDT free Installation”

9. Extract Kext kit + DSDT provided by Joshhh.
Copy all Kext files to your desktop.
Copy following files to your HDD /Extra folder:
* DSDT.aml
* org.chameleon.Boot.plist
* smbios.plist

10. Run ######
This will apply the kexts from your desktop.

11. Verify Kexts installation and clean cache (just to be safe)
open terminal
sudo kextcache -system-cache

If all OK, you may now reboot.

Thanks mate, great guide - worked perfectly on T510 onboard GFX only model.

To get Quartz Extreme and custom res, follow this guide

To get screen working after sleep, follow this guide



    My attitude isn’t bad. It’s in beta.

This is the wrong place for Hackintosh guides. And is against our forum rules.


Moved to the right place!
