Hi,

 

I'm new to this forums, and as I've seen, the Notebook section specifically on Lenovo are not anymore active. So I'll just post here.

Anyway, I've been trying to install Mavericks on my Lenovo Y510p, but there is no success. I've tried both the myHack and the other known method with Mavericks from the Mac App Store but when booting the installer, the Apple logo with gray background flashes then my laptop restarts. I'm not quite sure where I'm going in this. I've installed myHack and the other using a virtualized Mac OSx.

I hope someone can help me. thank you.

hi try to boot with -x -v GraphicsEnabler=No

If it still restarts try to capture (cellphone) the screen right before it restarts to see whats the cause.

Also chcek the prerequirements for OS installation (bios settings, removing potentionaly KP-causing kexts etc. )

And for the last try to search this forum. Im sure someone already did the install for Y510

 

Search button is your friend. 

 

Cheers

I actually did try capturing it with my cellphone, in video mode. It is so fast I can't even see what's the cause.

I've been also search everywhere but still no success..

Can you direct me with a better solution? I can't do much in the bios settings as it is locked.

You can say that my device as out of the box..

Getting mobile Kepler cards with OSX working, is a common known problem. The y510 has because of SLI no active Optimus function and therefore the IGPU not activated. But it is still sleeping there.

Try to remove NVDAResman.kext from your installer. This have you also to do over terminal, if your install is working without this kext.

I suggest also to remove the second gfx card from bay, if you have it sitting there.

Try to boot with flags -x -f -v.

 

Have fun.

 

PS: Can you please upload your under windows with Aida64 extracted acpi tables? I am interested in them.

For the Lenovo Z580, we had to go into BIOS and turn off UEFI mode and set SATA to AHCI.

 

On the Y510P, on the left side of the computer at the back is the "Novo" button.  With the computer off, press this button for a few seconds to enter BIOS setup mode.  For the Z580, in BIOS, we had to go to the Boot menu and find the UEFI setting.  Change that to "Legacy".  A second line should appear and change that to "Legacy first".  Your Y510P may be different.  Be sure to also set SATA to AHCI.

 

If this doesn't solve your reboot problem, then you might want to read this posting about reboots on Haswell machines: http://www.insanelym...63cl-i7-4700mq/

Mavericks installer from Mac App Store with myHack tool, with no flags, with proper BIOS settings, as per above post. No Extra GPU(GPU on the ultrabay).

ERROR: dcbtable_version is 0x0
ERROR: nVidia ROM Patching Failed!

then Apple Logo with gray background then laptop restarts.

I've also tried the flags mentioned and others, still no avail..

 

I haven't remove the NVDAResman.kext though.

 

Attached are my laptop's ACPI DSDT and SSDT in .bin format, also devdump, pcidump and a Report in html format.

Just try to remove all Geforce and Nvidia as also AppleIntel-Gfx kexts from your installer and boot without them.

 

Perphaps you get in this way a screen in Vesa mode and can do an install.

 

Have fun.

It is not very common for graphics problems to cause a quick reboot.  They usually just hang the boot.  But Rehabman has described a situation on Haswell laptops that does cause a quick reboot.  His solution involves a patched kernel.

This is the guide I followed in making a bootable USB drive. http://www.macbreake...ericks-dp1.html

So you can say that I haven't touched or whatever my DSDT or others, and my BIOS is not unlocked though I can change the AHCI and Legacy Support.

 

Anyway, where can I find and delete the Geforce and Nvidia and AppleIntel-Gfx kexts? and how to get to Vesa mode..

So should I get the attached file and replace the one on my installer? And also remove the nvidia and geforce kexts? as styrian said?

I'm really confused on what will I do next..

 

EDIT:

 

And also, as you can see on the file I attached above, my integrated GPU is disable, and I don't know how I can enable this. Is the the problem?

You need the modified kernel to get around the reboot problem.  Then you will have a graphics problem.  The Nvidia card will not work.  You need the integrated GPU.  In another forum, a user had to physically remove the Nvidia card through the Ultrabay in order to enable the onboard HD 4600 GPU.

I was able to boot the installer by replacing the original mach_kernel with the one attached on the post you gave. I removed the ultrabay gpu and I booted with -x -v PciRoot=1

I'm currently installing OSx as as I'm writing this. I hope I get successful installation. Oh, my trackpad doesn't work. I also install stuffs from the myhack app on the utilities. Not knowing what couls happen. Anyway I'll post my progress after the installation.

Thanks

Installation was successful, though I had to manually copy the mach_kernel from the usb to the HDD. How can I make my trackpad work?

Your trackpad is probably Synaptics PS/2.  Get the VoodooPS2 driver from the following link.  Read the ReadMe at the bottom of the page for installation notes and download location.

My touch pad is Elan, I'll try the Elan ketx I found from another forum. Anyway, how can I change SMBios, if possible and also what should I do with my DSDTs?

Can I use this CUDA driver for my GT 750m? http://www.nvidia.co....28-driver.html

 

As per http://www.geforce.c.../supported-gpus

My graphics card is listed to be supported..

You can use the Cuda drivers, but they will not help you, getting able to boot your lappy without savemode.

 

An idea, which I have, is, to read out the vga bios rom of your second card in the ultrabay and try to boot with it by video options of bootloader UseNvidiaRom/VBios as alternative vbios. For Howto readout this bios, you have to google. If you can not find a method for your model, then search for the Y500.

I hope this suggestion is helping you, to get QE/CI working.

 

Have fun.

What do you mean? I can use the Cuda drivers but they will not help me booting without safemode? In short, I can get Cude but still have to boot in -x flag?

 

I'm fine without using the ultrabay GT 750m. Upon checking System Report, the GT 750m on the PCIe slot, the one inside of the laptop, is being detected, but Mac uses the integrated HD4600. How can I make use of the GT 750m in PCIe slot regardless of the 2nd one on the ultrabay slot.

 

Also, when I installed the Elan Touchpad Driver v4 from here http://forum.osxlati...river-mac-os-x/

I get KP..
