    gendalo76 got a reaction from styrian in Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only   
    glad to know another T430 user in hackintosh and had working system.

    my installation just broke a weeks ago. fortunately got spare time after resigning from my job prior joining with other company. )
    i've installed Mountain Lion 10.8.4 with myHack method. i'm gonna stick with chameleon for a while.
    today i solved the sound issue by patching the ApplehDA.kext and using modified IOAudioFamily.kext. The resource i'm follow are all in OSX latitude forum.
    (looks like an error with their webserver when i post this).
    I've tested the output, internal speaker and headphone. both works okay. audio issue with internal speaker after wake from sleep is fixed by using the attached IOAudioFamily.kext.
    haven't got a chance to test the input (mic)
    attached are those 2 files i mentioned before.
    after installing the AppleHDA.kext, you need to modify the DSDT on HDEF part.
    you can check for more resources in this thread
    hope it useful.

    So success. Updating to 10.8.4 solved my hit-or-miss booting situation. My Lenovo T430 (2349GCU) Hackintosh is a success.
    Thanks to bcc9 for providing some much needed assistance in understanding my startup issue. Thanks to Gendalo for his original DSDT and EFI folder. Thanks to the developers of Clover EFI, whom I don't know first-hand, but without whose bootloader I would not have been successful. And of course thanks to all of you in this thread whose discussion on T420's was what originally motivated me to try this on my T430.
    Also, if it makes you guys feel any better, This thread is the only thread of value on the entire internet that provided the information i needed to get this project off the ground. I'n not joking, I spent days Googling my fingers raw for tangible information on T430's or 420's for that matter before I came accross this little gem.

    thanks! very cool. rehabman's stuff is great. i was hesitant as I seem to recall some early posts around using AppleSmartBatteryManager and they all seemed to require a lot of DSDT changes/edits. But I am able to run rehabman's AppleSmartBatteryManager v1.33 without any dsdt changes.
    in /S/L/E
    removed VoodooBattery.kext removed stock AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext installed new AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext edited the Contents/Info.plist - changed key UseExtendedBatteryInformationMethod to false (for v3 ACPI ) reboot  
    seems like i get 4% more out the battery because it started out at 96%! it is working just fine - shows 100% now.
    So now I am using rehabman's set:

      - sound is working. not perfect, but enough for me.
         use VoodooHDA ver 2.8.4, just install, no need to touch its pref pane.

    anyone has appleHDA patch for T430?? 

    i have same problem during my installation.
    i replace VboxHFS.efi to HFSPlus64.efi.
    it solved my problem.

    you don't need to desolder the chip. just use SOIC clip and hardware flash programmer. the chip is located below touchpad.
    if you have the same bios version as mine,1.16 (G1ET41WW), then you can get the nonwhitelist BIOS here.
    i share my tools and the process on another forum. you can get the link on the last reply on previous link (bios).

    Try again using my older custom package from post #117 and report back.
    BTW: I guess I'll be switching from T420 to T430 soon. Right now I have both machines to decide witch one to sell. The T430 is a stronger model (i7) with optimus graphic card that I've always wanted to play with in OSX. To bad I still have very little time lately to do some serious hackintoshing, but I can report this about the new T430:
    - I can boot successfully with older clover r1229 (I didn't had the time to investigate why Clover newer releases wont boot)
    - USB3 works excellent OOB (booting from 32GB USB3 pen-driver - super fast)
    - the NVIDIA NVS 5400M - works with graphic enabler (I have black screen with HD4000)
    - too bad the whitelist bios can't be flashed to this device (no WiFI swapping for broadcome model) and I don't want to solder the eprom and flash it outside using phoenix flasher. - Can you guys suggest USB wifi that works OOB?
    - T430 boots clover in full resolution (1600x900 and looks gorgeous) so I guess I'll update the ThinkPad theme background for high res in free time

    not sure about how you are installing OSX. you will need to have some kexts injected/loaded... the message you show usually is when you have all the custom kexts installed already - not for installation, when i install a fresh OS. i have FakeSMC.kext and VoodooPS2Controller injected installed in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.8..
    the boot args i use are:
    -v slide=0 WithKexts NoCaches
    seems that was the old way... looks like you specify
    InjectKexts <key>InjectKexts</key>
    <true/> Loads additional kexts from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/.../.
    Disabled by default.
    Requires FSInject.efi driver.
    NoCaches <key>NoCaches</key>
    <false/> Use if a recreation of system caches is needed, for example after the installation of new drivers. In contrast to ignoring caches, kext patches will be applied in this case.
    It makes no sense to leave this paramater permanently in the configuration file. Instead, chooseBoot ... without caches in the OS option menu by pressing O after having selected the OS entry.
    Requires FSInject.efi driver.
    without a dsdt.aml installed, I set PCIRootUID=1 in config.plist 
    also wonder why you have GraphicsEnabler=No as a boot  arg?
    if you take a look at the bundle i posted, the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist may help you get going.
    good luck

    Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?
    DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.

    Current Release Version: 3.1.1

    The system dumps are saved to a folder or your choice, but defaulting to the same directory as the main application. You can choose to setup a symlink to make it simple to run DarwinDumper from the Terminal.
    There is an option to create an html report showing a complete overview of the dumps. This report will mostly just contain the text dumps as you'll find in the main dump directory, but for some dumps there is extra processing to try to present the information in a better way. For example, the Disk Partitions and Unique ID's dump will show a visual map of the disk layout, and the DMI Tables (SMBIOS) dump will show the data split by table type.

    Note: The html report does not contain all files from a complete dump so if seeking assistance for a problem and you wish to send someone a DarwinDump then you will want to send the complete dump directory and not just the .html report file.
    The following can be read and dumped by DarwinDumper:
    - ACPI tables.
    - Audio codec and further info.
    - Boot loaders and configuration files.
    - CPU info.
    - Device-properties.
    - Disk partition structure / info.
    - Disk sectors (hex).
    - DMI (SMBIOS).
    - EDID.
    - I/O Kit Registry.
    - EFI Memory Map.
    - EFI vars (some).
    - Kernel information
    - Kexts - (list of currently loaded kexts).
    - Memory.
    - NVRAM (both Apple specific and UEFI firmware variables).
    - SMC Keys.
    - LSPCI (PCI vendor & device codes) dumps.
    - Power (Sleep/Hibernate) settings.
    - RTC.
    - System Profiler.
    - System BIOS.
    - System Log(s).
    - Video BIOS.

    Running DarwinDumper from the command line:
    From Terminal, you can initiate DarwinDumper by running the following script directly.
    /DarwinDumper.app/Contents/Resources/public/bash/script.sh To help with this, the UI has a Symlink option which you can click to create a symbolic link which points to the above script. DarwinDumper can then be subsequently run from the command-line by loading a new Terminal window and typing darwindumper followed by return.

    Please report any feedback, requests or bugs.
    Known issues: v3.1.0
    1 - When SIP File Protection is enabled, dumping disk partition info of non-APFS containers and disks which are not APFS physical stores may fail when running from DarwinDumper via the graphical interface. However, it's been known to succeed when using DarwinDumper from the command line. Something to do with osascript.
    2 - lzma archive option has been known to fail on macOS 10.15 when running dumps requiring root privileges.
    macOS Version support:
    - v2.9.9.2 is for older macOS versions
    - v3.0.4 requires OS X 10.9 and newer to run in the Finder, though it should work from the command line okay on older OS versions.
    - v3.1.0 was updated for newer macOS versions and has been tested on 10.13 and 10.15.
