#2235558 Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

bluetoothmust be turned on by: 1) enabled in BIOS2) windows (leave on)3) then when you boot up OSX you will see the green light. and the OS will be happy. so to install windows. .. the cleanest method is to delete the 2nd OSX partition and replace with a window partition using gpt.the windows installer can do this (sort of) - last time i used the windows installer, it created a 2nd EFI a bunch of other partitions. here is script that will remove the last partition and replace with windows type of partition (unformatted) - so when you go into windows installer you can format this partition and install windows to it.#!/bin/bash# add 2nd windows partition - to keep PMBRif [[ $1 == "" ]]; thenecho usage: $0 diskexitfi# list partitionsmkfifo /tmp/mypipesudo gpt -r show $1 |grep "GPT part" >> /tmp/mypipe &n=0while read b s i gpt part dash tdon=$(( n+1 ))#echo loop $n $b $s $i $gpt $part $dash $tindex=$istart=$bsize=$sdone < /tmp/mypiperm /tmp/my...

@denva - glad to have another member to our forum! The issue is that current versions of OSX don't support VGA very well. So attaching a VGA monitor (analog) is passive vs digital (active). The best solution for you is get a DP cable to attach your monitor on a digital port. when DP is connected to the system will not sleep when you close the lid.

@dirtyMetis - i think there is a separate forum/thread for T430/530 that may point out any key differences. i looked at quite a while ago but do recall there was a lot in common. but yeah often the mixed gfx (switchable/optimus) can be challenge.

@superwkn - well it looks like the graphics artifacts that was plaguing me a few short weeks ago.- did you update your config.plist that sets CsrActiveConfig to 0x43- slide=0 boot arg- and use the standard graphics kexts - vs any rollback etc.- how much memory do you have - 8 GB seems ideal. also, you could try using OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi (needs 0x43 setting) instead of the "Fix2Drv"

since there is manual control for TRIM (came in at 10.10.4 - so not that new :) ... maybe it is best to take the trim patch out the config.pist - which to my understanding is to disable the check for Apple SSD and turn on TRIM for any SSD

@tetonne - the clover config includes a TRIM patch so you probably won't need anything else.

@arsradi - one way to "purge" the MBR on GTP is the procedure i outlined (remove windows partition from GPT disk) will remove the MBR and replace with PBMR.  diskutil is geared towards bootcamp which likes to use MBR - dual boot UEFI with Clover is the way to go on a hack. so you need PBMR otherwise the windows installer finds a MBR and gets confused. gdisk - can do it as well -  convert the MBR to PMBR.

ok - update on the glitch saga. so i changed the SIP thing - CrsActiveConfig to 0x43 (instead 0x3) in config.plist - which enables NRAM writes. And then tested out OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi - and I got no glitches. So then i wanted to see what version changed Fix2Drv -- well i now i canNOT see glitches now...  running with 0x43 and the previously broke Fix2Drv. My son's T420 was on an older version r3348 with Fix2Drv and is probably why he has no glitches.  And I am on the very recent version 3419. So conclusion? 1) change 0x3 to 0x43 and if you still see glitches ...2) use OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi instead of Fix2Drv (may need to manually remove Fix2Drv from the ESP driversUEFI directory) Get a recent installer from https://sourceforge....11.zip/download will revise the bundle later today.<key>RtVariables</key><dict>  <key>BooterConfig</key>  <string>0x28</string>  <key>Cs...

@Zeridialous - i dunno? must be a driver thing? with my atheros on dual band wifi i only get tx=130 on 2.4 Ghz,  but tx=300 on 5 Ghz update on 10.11.4 glitches:  1) if i rollback the just the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext to 10.11.3 - get pretty decent results - just a odd black line every now and then.2) if i rollback more kexts:  AppleIntelHD3000* and AppleIntelSNB* and AGPM - seems to do even better - just started testing this though.  - glitches again.
