  1. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Just wanted to post another thank you....had a hard drive crash on my t420 and I dropped a new hard drive in and did a totally fresh and clean install and everything was soooo easy and worked right out of the box.
  2. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Now that my hackintosh is working perfectly I am of course teetering on the edge of futzing with it some more. Wanted to see if anyone else had any experience using one of the UltraBay hard drive adapters? I was curious about installing the original HDD back in the ultrabay (I am using a 128gb SSD as my main drive) and doing a Windows Install as an alternative. Also for dual boot any method I should use in particular? In the past I always did boot camp and then installed Parallels configured to my boot camp partition because this gave me the best flexibility with both dual booting and virtualization. Any general tips?

    For me I didn't have built-in bluetooth, but buying and installing this USB adapter fixed my wifi with no drivers needed at all: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007GFX0PY/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Also, wifi works perfectly but needs some software with this adapter: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003X26PMO/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i05?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Did you try either disabling Bluetooth in the BIOS, or in my case I use a USB bluetooth adapter as my model didn't have it built in, I simply removed it during install.
  5. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    For me the full install happened in "quadrant" mode. It wasn't until install was fully done and I installed clover and fixed the OEM folder that quadrant display was fixed.
  6. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    So happy I could kiss you! Although I'm probably not your type ;-) Everything is working perfectly, I'm running Mavericks and everything is fully functional (sound and display! hooray!) Only outstanding question is previously on 10.8 I booted with Kogen's custom clover build and it must have injected a different trackpad kext as I was previously able to do some 3 fingered gestures for mission control and switching between spaces. These seem to be broken, is that a 10.9 thing or should I pull a kext from his bundle? Having some minor issues with iMessage but I haven't done anywhere near enough troubleshooting on my end to diagnose yet.
  7. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    I am using the 33 version as I believe I have the low-res version. The EDID I ran was done while I was stuck in quadrant mode if that maybe explains why it would show the 1600x900 one. Not sure how to confirm to be honest, this computer barely ever ran windows :-) I guess my confusion is, when I install Clover the parition named "EFI" appears (although only one time was it named "ESP") when that happens I drag your zip file contents into the Clover/Boot folders and when I restart the computer that "EFI" partition is gone. Is this normal? Also, on the clover boot menu, if everything is installed correctly what do you select when booting up? Finally, the folder I am supposed to rename is "4236Y33" correct? The question is, how do I know what to rename it properly? Where do I find the appropriate string?
  8. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Ok all, well after some tricky issues I am back on Mavericks and able to boot but in only one of two scenarios: 1) Boot directly to Mac partition on UEFI Clover boot loader and deal with quadrant display issue 2) Boot off old formatted drive with Clover r1625 which fixes display and breaks sound I am having a hell of a hard time customizing things. After I have installed Clover and I restart the computer should I still see the ESP partition? This consistently disappears the moment I restart my computer. Additionally if I try to select the EFI partition on the Clover boot screen it just flashes. Back on Mountain Lion my startup would be selecting EFI than my Mac drive and it worked great but no luck. Finally, I’ve seen totally mixed answers on where I should find my product ID. Using various methods it seems like my DisplayProductID is 738 but I’m not even sure that is the right number I should be renaming the OEM folder too? I've included below stuff I pull from when I did the ioreg -l: "IODisplayEDID" = <00ffffffffffff0030e4e2020000000000140103801f11780a43459759578e28215054000000010101010101010101010101010101018025408060841a303020350036ae10000019000000000000000000000000000000000000000000fe004c4720446973706c61790a2020000000fe004c503134305744322d544c42310038 "DisplayProductID" = 738 "DisplayVendorID" = 12516 "IODisplayPrefsKey" = "IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/IGPU@2/AppleIntelFramebuffer@0/display0/AppleBacklightDisplay-30e4-2e2" To answer TLuck’s question, yes low res model with i5 2.49ghz
  9. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Ok I seem to be stuck so I wanted to see if what I am doing is even correct to be honest. When I look at Finder I have two main hard drive volumes for my system EFI and Mac. I’ve been updating the files and dropped everything into the folders on EFI from the zip tluck provided. This has everything working perfectly besides the display which is still showing up as quadrants. When I attempt to install Clover again on the desktop it fails, and previously what made my display show up correct on 10.8.5 was simply selecting UEFI and then my Mac install during the boot process, that made everything boot properly. Now when I select UEFI it doesn’t seem to work, it just essentially refreshes the window so I can select UEFI endlessly or I can select my Mavericks install. It seems like something is wrong with my Clover install but I can’t figure out what or how to fix it. I went through all the steps on post #486 and it didn’t seem to resolve my issue, I even went and edited the .plist and turned dual link off as that was mentioned earlier in this thread. I’m trying to fix it now via my macbook air using splashtop so I can edit things without having to squint :-)

    Try removing all your account settings completely and then adding it back. Also deleting your credit card on file and re-adding it could help. That worked for me back on 10.8
  11. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Sorry, this is a dense question but I am suffering from too many TLAs (three letter acronyms) Can I ask one of the wonderful ninjas here to help explain what these are? ESP SLE AGPM Status Update: I'm running Mavericks like a champ now and just trying to fix up my display issue now
  12. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Ok guys, I am at an odd stand still that I didn't experience at all when I put 10.7 or 10.8 on here.... I've been using LionDiskMaker and now Disk Maker X since they just pushed a brand new version tonight it seems. Even tried MyHack and I simply cannot get my Mavericks USB stick to be considered bootable. At the UEFI boot menu it doesn't show up at all. If I try to do the installer from the 10.8.5 it tries to verify and fails saying contact AppleCare. So for tonight, I remain on lowly Mountain Lion. Thanks so much for that display tip above, once I'm in 10.9 I'll go through those steps too
  13. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Thanks so much for the great help in this thread. I've got a fairly stable 10.8.5 build running now and my key plan for upgrading was: Download release from App store on my other mac (already did this step) Create bootable USB via new version of Lion Disk Maker (did this step too) Install latest version of clover to the USB drive Replace EFI folder on USB drive with one downloaded from your ZIP At that stage, do I boot from the USB drive and select upgrade or do I need to wipe and do a fresh install. I've also never tried before, does the hackintosh community support usage of a time machine so I could back up my current environment and restore if I need to do a clean install from the flash drive. Post install of 10.9 I just install the latest build of Clover? Also what is the best method to quickly install custom kexts post install? Thanks! Also has anyone else encountered a strange bug on their machine where the clock slowly over time becomes inaccurate? For example mine was showing 1:51 at 2:00 and if I open the preferences for time it connects and fixes itself. Strange bug I just noticed.
  14. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Are there any key tips I should follow to do an upgrade from 10.8.5 to 10.9? Now that it is released and I use this actually as a work machine with 2 monitors I would love to get the enhanced multi-moniter support Also: T420, i5, lower res screen, sound just never ever works :=) Thanks!
  15. Ok, last night after a few months of my hackintosh being offline I decided it was time to reattempt the fun that is hackintosh. I utilized the method I found to be the most successful last time which was [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] + Retail DVD + [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. Using the dsdt posted in post 2 or 3, as well as AsusP6TDeluxeV2_boot_132v1.15.7z from post 1 I was able to get almost everything working. However, despite my best efforts I am currently still unable to get audio working. I have dropped the audiopatcher.sh into terminal a few times, entered my password and to no avail. I have also tried using audio out on the motherboard as well as audio out via HDMI (XFX 5770) and neither are working. Additionally, despite my best efforts the D-Link usb bluetooth adapter I used and was successful with 10.6.5 is no longer working on 10.6.7. It will find my magic mouse and trackpad just fine but says there is a configuration problem preventing it from pairing. Next, I am unable to successfully boot by booting directly to the harddrive, however if I put the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] disk in I can boot directly to the harddrive with no additional commands being necessary. Finally, sleep seems to be non-functional, althought to be honest I haven't tried much to resolve that as of yet as it was a more minor concern compared to those above. I have read and searched this thread, and others, over and over and it seems I am alone in my bluetooth error, and all known methods of fixing audio aren't working for me.
