    Alright. I've got a functional hackintosh laptop now. Here's what I did:
    1. Configured G510 bios for UEFI only mode and disabled Virtualization (at least for installation)
    2. Used Clover to create a bootable Mavericks USB. The main thing here is to get the correct config.plist and the kexts. See my shared folder and follow the instructions for installing Mavericks using Clover (google it up, tons of posts on the net regarding this topic). The main advantage I found, not kernel patching to be done manually and the graphics for HD4600 was up and running right from install. Didn't need special kexts.
    3. Remember that Clover takes a long time to install, so set aside an hour at least for the basic install process. Even when the screen says one second remaining, its going to take a lot of time. And dont forget that it reboots about 3 times before the installation is finally done.
    The config.plist from my machine should give you all the setting you need. If not, read up on how to take a generic config.plist and customize to your hardware.
    4. Troubleshooting for booting:
    - Some bluetooth error: Use IntelAzul=12 flag, or use -x for safe mode. At least one of these options should work.
    - Some kernel trap or memory error: Use maxmem=2048 or maxmem=4096 (at least for installation)
    5. After the install is done and you can boot up from your laptop drive, install the required kexts (ones attached in the link as well as any other you might need)
    NOTE: My G510 uses an Elan touchpad. Dont use Rehabman's PS2 controller kext cos it wont work completely (dragging and gestures basically). Use this: http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/
    6. UPDATE: Hackintosh is running well mostly, except for the issue with the wifi dongle noted below. The latest news is I have got battery status! Just use Rehabman's ACPI Battery Driver from the following post: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks-laptop-support/116102-how-patch-dsdt-working-battery-status.html
    Yup, that should give you a working hackintosh. I added a Kinivo Bluetooth dongle to connect to my stereo and ordered a TP Link WN725N WiFi dongle. Until then, am using Horndis-rel5 (http://joshuawise.com/horndis) for connecting my Samsung Note2 in USB tethering mode for a wifi connection.
    UPDATE: So the WN725N V2 usb WiFi does not work too well. My mac has been crashing for some time now and I believe it is due to the dongle. Plus there seems to be instances where it drops the net every now and then. Still exploring
    Files needed for Clover:  
    My specific G510 model: Lenovo G510/59-398343. Not all G510s are equal.
    Here's the main h/w i needed to get configured/kexts for:
    Intel HD4600 only (should work with provided config.plist since kexts are available with Mavericks I think). i5 4200M (Haswell, Clover patches kernel automatically). Elan Touchpad (link provided). Realtek audio (used VoodooHDA, had to apply patches for low volume, though not very successful).
    WiFi and Bluetooth wont work. Nor will the function keys on the keyboard.

    Hello hackintoshers,
    Having bought a Lenovo g510 some while ago, and searching around for guides how to make Mavericks 10.9.2 work on it, I decided to start this topic so I can get the right information together on how to make Mavericks fully running on the specific machine. Help me create a comprehensive guide.
    Ok, so let's start. First of all I will post the specs of my machine for the background information, and then I'll be going into the steps I have followed in order to get where I'm now.
    Processor: i5-4200 2,50 Ghz
    RAM: 4GB DDR3
    Graphics: Intel 4600 (integrated) & AMD HD8570m (dedicated) (switchable graphics)
    Wi-fi: BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (Broadcom)
    Ethernet: QCA8172 (Qualcomm Atheros)
    What I have accomplished so far:
    1. I created a usb drive using myhack (downloaded Mavericks from the App Store), and having a Haswell processor, I had to apply the Haswell patch (you will find the related topic here)(this will stop your pc from rebooting every time you are trying to load the Mavericks installation). Optionally if you are going to use an MBR partition table you will have to patch the myhack usb drive with the MBR patch because for some reason the myhack MBR patching doesn't work (find the patch here).
    2. I installed Mavericks on my hard drive without any problems. Take note that UEFI must be switched off through the BIOS, and that you also need to switch the switchable graphics to UMA graphics (also in the BIOS) because otherwise the Mavericks install will not start.
    3. When I finished the installation, after the system restarts, I had to boot from the usb drive again in order to copy the mach_kernel file from the usb drive to the fresh installation through the terminal (cp "/Volumes/<myhack usb drive>/mach_kernel" "/Volumes/<fresh Mavericks install>").
    4. Restart and boot into the fresh installation with -x boot flag because it won't boot into Mavericks any other way (as people have told me this has probably to do with grahpics drivers, but we will get to that later on). Finishing with the final settings.
    5. Once inside, what was the most important thing for me was to get the ethernet working. ALXEthernet driver will do for that (you can find it here, but it would be a good idea to save the file to the usb drive in a new folder, together with a kext installer such as ikext (here), so you can install the ALXEthernet kext right away).
    6. Now starts the epic search for drivers for making the rest of the hardware work.
    What works:
    Ethernet, webcam, keyboard and touchpad (for the touchpad get rehab's voodoo driver here) and sound (get the voodooHDA driver here)
    What does not work (yet):
    wi-fi, bluetooth, card reader, switchable graphics (or dedicated graphics at least)
    Please help me out. The issues that need to be fixed is that I can't run Mavericks without -x boot flag, and the hardware listed above as not working (look at specs for specification of what hardware my machine is using).
    Any further progress will be added to this first post after verification that it really works so that there will be a comprehensive guide for installing Mavericks 10.9.2 on the Lenovo g510.

    If it does indeed have an eDP display, then you can't enable the internal LCD with QE/CI since the framebuffer isn't coded for eDP displays. Now, if this computer does have a VGA port, then you may be able to use an external VGA monitor with QE/CI. The problem is that its very experimental. I tested this once before on my hackintosh and while it kind of works, the resolution either works or not which is why I abandoned it. I may look into this again in the future.
