How did you run the card reader?

Use Kext, or DSDT patches?

Well, I finally had the time to sit down and work on my wife's Lenovo G580 20150. After a weekend of work(literally) I have a almost completely working hackintosh G580, even the wifi since the 20150 has the atheros ar9285. The only thing that is not working is the camera and the USB ports will not detect a flash drive. I changed out the IOUSBFamily kext at the beginning and I have a feeling that has something to do with it. If I hook up a usb mouse or keyboard they work perfectly, so any ideas??

 

EDIT: using USBBusFix=Yes flag the camera works and the usb ports work fine with usb KB and mouse, but still will not work with a USB flash drive even with the boot flag.

For fully functional system, you may use the files from my host [I've modfied the latest kext available and created a config file for CLOVER]

 

The installation method is simple: just copy > paste [do not use other kexts, DSDT file or anything else than the ones from my site]

- everything should work, including sleep, power management, graphics, audio with mic, etc

- keyboard shortcut all works [I've disabled for now Fn+ Up/Down for brightness until I'll make a proper fix but you can use ContextMenu+ Up/Down]

- set the bios to use only the integrated graphics, and to legacy support with legacy first

- the CLOVER folder as /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/

- the kexts goes to System/Library/Extensions/

- any information about the system is present in the dump folder

- wireless card is changed to AR5B195 and rebranded using Windows 7 to make it present as whitelisted

 

Lenovo G580 20157, i5, 8gb ram, hd4000

Check the _changes.txt file to keep up with the updates [if there's none, that means I'm working on it]

// you may set the FastBoot to false in config if you have dual boot
