    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Great, thank you. Mouse works, experimented a little bit with speed values, it behaves like a brick, but I can choose OS on boot. Enabling the external Keyboard would be perfect, but can live without.

    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Hi all. Thanks for the hard work on this. I've an issue, maybe Clover related: usb mouse and apple keyboard doesn't work in the Clover boot screen. After the OS has loaded no problems, but to choose partitions I have to open the lid and use the arrows. Quite annoying when using an external monitor. Any thoughts?

    SMC Emulation in DSDT

    From Apple (Oh my Google...) SMC: The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is on the logic board of the computer. As the name implies, it is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping. ... The lack of this chip on standard x86 motherboards means no direct support by the OS of the above mentioned functions, obliging us to use handmade kexts like voodoopower, ps2, openhaltrestart.... The possibility of emulating the chip (fooling the OS) through DSDT patching (like GPU, Ethernet, Sound...) would solve some (if not all) of the problems, and bringing us closer to the 101% Mac Os X experience. Correct me if I'm wrong. EDIT: Partially incorrect information, thanks EncryptedSoul Further, SMC provides the key for the decryption of the binaries. Emulating it would mean: For more insight read here and here

    Kernel Panic - Need Help

    First of all you must provide more information like install method (Kaly, IPC, Retail...), then a little more of Hardware specs would be nice, and at the end some basic error checking (boot with -v flag to see if there's an error, repair permissions in disk utility, clear kext cache with f.i. OSXTools) and finally remembering when it started (software update, new applications/codecs/...) would be great. Don't be shy and the community will be glad to help you out.
  6. Can confirm. Lost TWICE my mounted HD due to system crash/power failure. And reconstructing the partition table isn't a relaxing hobby.
