Its has been a while now that I have successfully, converted my t420s to a hackintosh thanks to this thread. However, there is one slight problem and that is that under load, the idle temp of the cpu which hovers around 50 degrees goes to 90 (ie. youtube 1080p/ 4k full screen, or other cpu intensive task). Normally, in windows this would be accommodated with a rapid rise in fan speed or I could enable turbo boost, and everything would run cool and fast. Is there a way of enabling turbo boost or increasing the fan rpm in this set up. Any help is appreciated, thanks
Hi, I have a Lenovo t420s (4170CTO) i5-2520, HD300 8G ram, and 1600x900 display. I have made laptop into a hackintosh through Nerish, but the resolution is all wrong initially it only allowed for one resolution of 13**x7** and after a patch/kext/ (not sure) what it was it only displays image through VGA on a 1080p screen. Anyways i'd like to try this method provided by tluck. 1. I'd like to know if the protocol provided by tluck would work on my system. I have tried multiple times to mount the application and clover both MBR and GUID method, but I have been unsuccessful. Is there any specific method/detail that needs to be followed to get the installation working? 2. If I have the t420s (4170CTO) what do I write for the product ID? I have seen others just writing a number that does not exactly match their product ID. Where can I find this ID? Thank you in advance.
