    Lenovo g510 compatibility with Mavericks 10.9.2

    I have no luck with the wifi yet, but I'll keep trying to find a solution for it. Regarding the UMA graphics option, I have attached a picture with my bios settings if you find it useful. First thing I'd ask you is if you have updated the bios yet (although I don't remember if there was any big difference with the old one), if you have you should find it under configurations>graphics device. https://www.dropbox.com/s/dpboabdw4yvge1t/IMG_1945.JPG (click on the url for the image)

    Areeb, can you give us a more detailed description of how you got clover to work? I want to install clover but usually I get stuck with a couple of issues, so it would be great to know for example what options to put into the installer, and what to do next in order to get it working. Thanks in advance

    http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/121293-rebranding-broadcom-based-80211bgn-cards/ This is probably the way to get the wifi working. We'll find out soon enough.

    Lenovo g510 compatibility with Mavericks 10.9.2

    I fixed most problems. sound's working with VoodooHDA, webcam and usb working out of the box, external mouse working, qe/ci working with IntelAzul=12 boot flag (for the graphical user interface of the OS), I still need to get my trackpad to work and my card reader although I could live without since I have an external card reader, but it would be great to get that fixed as well. Still need to find a way around the wi-fi, and the switchable graphics (so I can use the AMD HD8570m). What else... keyboard working fine, I had to repair permissions with kext wizard in order to stop my laptop from crashing, I'm using Chameleon boot loader at the moment but want to step over to clover (still not really into risking it cause it will take me time to refis the whole OS with kexts and stuff). Perhaps in the near future, God willing. So, kexts I have used include VoodooHDAv284 for sound, ALXEthernet for ethernet, everything else works out of the box, kind of. I hope I'm not forgetting anything. Peace.

    One problem I'm having is for example if I open up safari, it keeps flashing (probably due to graphics), same goes with the launchpad. How do I get these to work properly?

    That's great, could you help me to find the right kexts for my hardware? I presume you have already found what you needed to make it work, so if you could share that with us that would really be awesome
  8. 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. Specs: Processor: i5-4200 2,50 Ghz RAM: 4GB DDR3 Graphics: Intel 4600 (integrated) & AMD HD8570m (dedicated) (switchable graphics) HDD: 1TB SATA 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. Thanks.

    Wants to create Greek hackintosh forum

    Thanks for the warm welcome. Please feel free to take a look at the link that I posted and give me your support if you think it is a good initiative Ευχαριστώ για το θερμό καλωσόρισμα. Η όποια βοήθεια είναι καλοδεχούμενη και ευπρόσδεκτη. Θα ήταν καλό να υπήρχε και μια 100% ελληνική κοινότητα hackintosh. Δείτε και πείτε μου

    Wants to create Greek hackintosh forum

    For philosophical reasons I don't want to go too much into detail but I want to make a seperate community that can work together with the already existing ones if needed, but not be part or be under the umbrella of any already existing community.
  11. Hello people, I was wondering if people can help me out in creating a forum in Greek for hackintoshing purposes. You can PM me for more info. Any support is most welcome. Also if there are any Greeks in this forum, come and join me, let's bring hackintosh to Greece PS: sorry for posting here but I don't have the permission to post anywhere else.

    Introduce yourself.

    Introduce myself.. Second name: George Location: Greece PC: Lenovo Ideapad G510 laptop (well, I have another desktop pc, but unfortunately I don't have access to it for reasons I don't want to reveal in this forum) Hackintoshing level: novice a.k.a noob OS'es: Mavericks (myhack), Windows 8.1, Ubuntu 14.4 LTS Further laptop specs: Processor: i5-4200 2,50 Ghz RAM: 4GB DDR3 Graphics: Intel 4600 (integrated) & AMD HD8570m (dedicated) (switchable graphics) HDD: 1TB SATA Wi-fi: BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (Broadcom) Ethernet: QCA8172 (Qualcomm Atheros) I'm happy to be part of this community. I hope with time I can become an active member and be able knowledge-wise to help other members out with problems and what have you. I also hope I can find answers to my questions here and maybe make some friends in the process. Have a great one.
  13. I'm really excited to see how this thread will evolve. Sorry for not having the knowledge to contribute in any way, but I hope someone can get switchable graphics to work in OSX, or at least to get dedicated cards to work. Keep up the good work. Cheers.

    Problems installing OSX on M2N32 Sli-Deluxe

    Bro, maybe if you try the iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5, it will work. It works for me, and I only get the blue screen when not running in safe mode (and I have no idea how to fix that, but anyway). I have the same motherboard as you have. Lan doesn't work, Wlan doesn't work, sound doesn't work, but everything else goes just smoothly.
