I'm on a T510, working great now.  

Bulletproof operations make this a real workhorse machine.


Internal LCD, sleep, backlight after sleep, etc. all working well.  

Speedstep is properly working according to HWMonitor.

Other than the card reader (no great loss), with one minor thing, this laptop would be a true HackBook Pro...


The external VGA and/or DisplayPort out - using as extended desktop, would be amazing.  

Is this possible with the Intel only graphics model?  I don't have nVidia.

I just realized that I gave up on the USB installer on this machine and instead put the HD onto a real Mac and installed Mavericks from there. Then I tweaked the HD to remove the extensions... I never got the installer to work as I kept getting garbage on the screen . Not sure if that's an option for you but that might make life easier?

First, delete all Graphics kexts from USBInstaller NVDA* ATI* AMD* GeForce* AppleIntelHD*, then change your smbios to MacBookPro6,1, then install al kext from Extra/Extensions to S/L/E of your USBInstaller, then boot with this flag, be sure that FakeSMC.kext is present


-f -v -x npci=0x2000 dart=0 cpus=1


Obviously, also make sure you fix any permissions on the S/L/E folder after adding or removing anything... :)

Try removing the NVDAXXXX extensions from the USB installer.  These laptops appear to be a little finicky in their video drivers and detection.

Where in the process does it loop?  Can you see where it ends when you boot verbose?  (-v) ?

With Ludacrisvp's DSDT I get sleep and backlight working, but I cannot seem to keep the fan from running constantly.

Is that something to do with SpeedStep, and if so, how to get that working?


This is getting closer to being perfect...  just a little more and it will be my daily machine :)
