So i found the article of Kogen Mantis Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI only Create a usb key and copy is lenovo pack inside by comparing the key and his folder I was not only able to boot in UEFI but have my mountain lion seen in the main menu and able to boot to a certain extend i am block after 5 displayed screens. Now here is my question if someone can help A is it real that we no longer need DSDT when we are booting in UEFI ? Thanks by advance for anyone who will help
