  1. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    @verleihnix thanks for sharing ssdt.aml. I have the same CPU and copied it to my /Extra + chmod + chown. It works well but doesn't solve my wake up from sleep problem. Looks like I may have to install 10.8.2 and then upgrade that to 10.8.3
  2. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    @tluck one big difference is that I installed 10.8.3 straight instead of installing 10.8.2 first and then upgrading to 10.8.3. So I have two choices now. 1. Get 10.8.2 SLE from somewhere to replace my SLE OR 2. Reinstall 10.8.2 OSX and then upgrade to 10.8.3. and in the end, apply the pack from your post #238 I have run into problems in booting up from a windows partition when I have reinstalled OSX on the HFS partition in the past, so I am a little hesitant to take the second approach.
  3. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    @tluck thanks for being so patient with me. I have the same DSDT as #238 lspcidrv.kext and atched_10.7_AppleRTC.kext came with myHack. I have removed them now. I have also removed NullCPUPM as I have AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from #238 In addition, myHack automatically removed the following kexts ApplePolicyControl.kext AppleTyMCEDriver.kext AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext I am using Lenovo T420 8GB 2.49 GHz Intel Core i5 HD 3000 graphics OSX 10.8.3 If someone has a system identical to mine and it is working correctly, could you please upload the SLE? I will replace mine entirely. I am using the following org.chameleon.Boot.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Boot Banner</key> <string>No</string> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>No</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>PCIRootUID=1</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>Default</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>3</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EnableHDMIAudio</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist>
  4. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    While experimenting with sleep and power cycle, DVI port through the dock stopped working and the external monitor automatically switched to VGA. This would not be a big deal provided image on the external monitor didn't shift about four inches to the left, horizontally leaving a black border on the right. I have reverted all my changes, restored the working SLE but cannot get the DVI port to work. I am using everything from the 10.8.3 pack in #238. UPDATE: VGA works fine now. Perhaps it had something do with with the fact that I restored the following kexts spcidrv.kext Patched_10.7_AppleRTC.kext I tried to restore NullCPUPowerManagement.kext but it gave me a kernel panic. I would like to know whether you have these three kexts or any other kexts from the unibeest or myhack usb stick in your SLE that I might be missing. Waking up from sleep is the only remaining issue that I still care about.
  5. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    I am only using the 10.8.3 pack from post 238 for now. I even reverted AppleACPIPlatform.kext back to the one from that pack, same for dsdt and everything else. Trying to wake up from sleep is impossible.
  6. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    hnak's version of AppleIntelE1000e . kext from sourceforge worked great. I didn't even have to restart the machine. VoodooPS2Controller worked like a charm this time. I am still having a hard time with sleep. I tried both in the dock and outside the dock, without power cable, the laptop goes to sleep fine but it just doesn't wake up. I have to power cycle. I have Intel HD only. I do not have nvs4200m. I will try replacing some of my extensions with those in post #164. Dell 1510 wireless card is only about $7 with free ship on ebay and it gives wireless N! You guys are so awesome!
  7. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    As soon as I put AppleIntelE1000e.kext inside/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ my keyboard, mouse, trackpad stop working and I cannot login. When booting with -f -v, I still see an annoying SuperIODevice; [Fatal] found unsupported ship ID=0xffff but now it just stays at that line without moving foward. I have to get the ethernet to work. Is there any other way? Last line on the screen reads Resetting IOCatalogue. So I have removed AppleIntelE1000e.kext for now.
  8. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    I think I messed up some extensions. After the initial configuration, my subsequent boot from a 10.8.3 ML hard drive goes very slow and stops for a long time at this line SuperIODevice: [Fatal] found unsupported ship ID=0xffff It then moves forward by itself but I cannot not use mouse or keyboard, not even the external ones. So, now I cannot go past the login screen. My initial config screen also showed the same error and was very very slow. I have removed ApplePS2Controller.kext and restored VoodooPS2Controller.kext but still no luck. Please help. UPDATE: I was able to get the keyboard and trackpad to work by restoring my original S/L/E and the reapplying the pack given by @tluck in post #238. Also, it boots up in under 30secs if I do not use -f -v options. Internal audio/video, launch pad work great. Airlink USB wifi works fine. Any suggestions to replace the internal wifi card? External Monitor VGA does not work either directly or through a dock but DVI works great .. Yay! Can I have VGA work as well? Following are not working: 1. Internal ethernet. 2. When I close the lid, it switches to external monitor which would have been fine except for the fact that there is no way to put it to sleep. When I choose sleep through menu bar, fan keeps running and I have to hold down the power button to restart. This is not ideal. 3. Trackpoint worked fine in the installer but it doesn't work after the install. I really like thinkpad's trackpoint. My previous attempt did not fly at all and this is still better than I expected. Thanks for your help!
  9. [GUIDE] Thinkpad T420 with (Mountain) Lion

    Instructions on page one are for Lion. I am wondering if there are any equivalent instructions that will allow me to go straight to Mountain Lion, skipping the Lion part. I would also like to keep the existing Windows 7 install on the MBR as is therefore, not going to use the EFI method. Can someone please summarize this in to a simpler set of steps for me? Thanks
  10. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Thanks everyone and esp. to Kogen for excellent work. I have a t420 which is running Windows 7. My questions are 1) Do I need to re-install Win 7 if I want to dual boot? 2) Will I be able to use extended external monitors. VGA or DVI or both?
  11. Installing Leopard on HP NC6220

    Hi Herb. I know this is too late but I can help you with installing 10.5.8 on nc6220. I just did it on mine and it works great. Let me know through this topic.
  12. I will try turning the hard drive to sleep OFF. Thanks. For the hibernate fail and garbage error, try thee following commands $ sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 $ sudo rm -rf /var/vm/sleepimage $ sudo rm -rf /private/var/vm/sleepimage
  13. Broadcom 5751 APPLEBCM5751ETHERNET.KEXT

    Ethernet worked by following this post. Just use Kext helper to install AppleBCM5751Ethernet kext. MAC address is not populated. Any ideas?
  14. [How to] HP NC6220 10.5.5

    Has anyone managed to get the sleep to work. I can go to sleep fine but I get a blank screen when I wake up from sleep on nc6220 running 10.5.6 UPDATE: Sleep works (kind of) with the VoodooPower.kext, after unchecking put hard disk to sleep and checking the following options in Power Management (another fix) Wake for ethernet Allow power button to sleep Show battery status Trackpad and trackpoint do not work after it wakes up.
  15. HP Compaq NC6220 Topic

    Has anyone managed to get the sleep to work. I can go to sleep fine but I get a blank screen when I wake up from sleep on nc6220 running 10.5.6 EDIT: Used Kext Helper to install AppleBCM5751Ethernet kext. MAC Address is all zeros. Also sleep is giving issues. Fan keeps running during sleep and the computer insists on going to sleep after a set time, even while I am working on it. How to fix that?
