    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Hello, After working a little on Catalina I went back to Mojave, I do not know if I am impressing but with Mojave my T420 I think works much better. With Catalina I had a constant appearance of black lines when working with Safari and at Mojave after a week of work there is no memory of them. I don't want to mislead anyone, but in Mojave's view, things are much smoother and more seamless. I have installed many different software on the laptop and everything works very well. The only thing I have a problem with is an update: Security Update 10.14.6 - Security Update 2020-001 is recommended for all users and improves the security of macOS, which after booting the laptop loads and comes to a black screen and nothing goes wrong happens. Now that I see the difference in working under Catalina and Mojave, I definitely think that Mojave is much better. I mentioned that when I started this venture I had installed High Sierra which was on the standard T420 HDD and was fascinated by the speed of opening and working with Photoshop, now I thought that after changing the HDD with SDD, things would be much better better but not that fast, is it not that i'm with Mojave now, will there be a change in work if i go back to high sierra? And one more question, if I decide to add more RAM Memory because apparently 8 GB is small (the attachment is at system startup, no applications open), should I do the installation from the beginning.

    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Hello, After having a fully working Catalina on my T420, I wondered if it really would work faster and better with Sierra. Before I started with Hackintosh, I had installed High Sierra and was very fascinated by the quick work of opening Photoshop, even though the laptop back then had its usual HDD. Now that I am with SSD I expect the performance to be much better, but I notice that there is a delay in starting heavier programs and I am thinking very much about going back to Sierra. As much as I was careful about the forum posts, I was left with the understanding that Sierra is best for the T420 and Intel HD Graphics 3000, right?

    My WD My Passport Ultra started after I removed the USB WLAN, but I still backed up the Time Machine to an old external drive. Now I plan to install CarbonCopyCloner and create an archive with it. Is it possible to backup the system without user files and in the event of a system crash in which I cannot fully load the operating system, how to start recovery?

    Hello, I had a slight problem with touchpad and the keyboard I solved by reinstalling Catalina. I installed the operating system and everything was working fine, then I installed: - Microsoft Office 2019; - ABBYY FineReader 2019; - Acrobat DC v.19; - Photoshop 2020; - Lightroom Classic 2020; - Adobe InDesign 2020; - CorelDRAW 2019; - and more free software ... All the programs work very well on my hardware and on Catalina, and now I want to backup everything before I continue to install other software and modify the Clover files. Previously, I used Corsair Voyager GT USB 3.0 - 32 GB for backup, which I backed up to 16 GB at the beginning. But now I need a free 55 GB to make an archive I have WD My Passport Ultra USB 3.0 - 2 TB but after plugging it into my laptop the message from the Print Screen application comes out. Please give me advice on how to get the laptop to look at the portable hard drive so I can back up everything and be reassured that if the system fails I can restore it to that position. Thank you!

    The first big bug came up, the mouse and touchpad stopped working The only thing I have done before is that I changed the system to not start from dual_link_config.plist and from config.EDID-2e2.plist, which lost the horizontal black lines from the display but then the mouse and touchpad. With external mouse and keyboard works. I think I should switch to High Sierra, but the main purpose of this project is to use it for Photoshop and Lightroom and that was the reason for installing the latest version.

    Everything works very well. These days I will test more extensively and write if bugs occur. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello, First of all, my big thanks to the truck for its work and guidance, as well as big thanks to goodguess for the tips and assistance, you are №1. After all the tips and clarifications I received, I dare say that I already have a perfectly working Catalina on my ThinkPad T420. I followed all your installation process guidelines and everything went smoothly. After installing the operating system I had a freeze again but after replacing config.plist with one from the dual_link_config.plist archive, I no longer have problems. My display turned out to be AUO after checking with Knoppix 8.6, thank you @goodguess. For WLAN (WiFi), I use the ASUS Wi-Fi Adapter USB-AC53 Nano, which I installed without a problem on Catalina. Once again, thank you all for your support. I continue to follow the topic and will be happy to help someone with my experience.

    Hello again, Huge thanks to Goodguess for the guidance. I apologize that I will have to ask some questions again, but this time I want to make the installation as it should and everything is done to the last detail. Question №1: Installation process Option №1: Start the SSD installation - First reboot - Choose to boot from SSD - Finish the installation until the desktop is fully loaded - Copy the EFI folder from Clover to the EFI folder on the SSD - Restart and choose to start from USB - Perform Post Install - Restart - Boot operating system. Option №2: Start the SSD installation - First reboot - Choose to boot from USB - Perform Post Install - Restart - Choose to boot from SSD - Finish the installation to fully load the desktop - Copy the EFI folder from Clover to the EFI folder of the SSD. Question №2: Post Install Process Need to tick Force Cache Rebuild after Post Install Process? Question №3: Display manufacturer How do I know which display manufacturer is on my ThinkPad? I am attaching BIOS photos!

    And what about Catalina on T420? I found out where my errors were when installing and configuring Mojave and I really want to try it install Catalina, do you have experience with it and any impressions on whether it's worth a try or stay on Mojave?

    Hi again, I think I've fixed the freezing problem on the screen. Of course it was because I had read between the lines. Before starting OS, I went into clover options and set it to run with config.EDID-2e2.plist and I no longer have any clogs and freezes even with all the dock effects Now I have the following question, do I need to do something special to automatically load this config.EDID-2e2.plist so I don't manually ask it, or if it is already asked once it will start automatically? And one more question, come to me Security Update 2019-002, 10.14.6 - 1,36 GB which I had previously installed but then starting up the laptop and staying on the black screen, ignore it or look for a solution to this problem as well?
