  1. Lenovo ThinkPad X61 Tablet

    Hi everyone. First, thanks so much for this thread. It was very helpful in getting my first hackintosh going. I'm mot too familiar with this OS (been using Linux for years though, so it's not too alien), so this has been a challenge. I'm trying to look into the wireless right now, but can't seem to find anything on the particular hardware that lshw in Linux claims I have. The output said "Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection" but the first post on this thread mentioned that these Lenovo X61t's generally have either the ThinkPad Wireless MiniPCIE Atheros card or the Intel 3945 card. This machine is 100% standard stock, so I'm confused as to why I've got something different. I only ordered an upgraded battery, ram, and disk space, with the finger reader (was fun to tinker with). Nothing unusual. I've googled all over the place and can't tell which of these two mine is, if any, so I'm wondering if there's something else going on here. Now, I did google for anything hackintosh related to "Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection" for anything to help with the compatibility since this seems to be a different kind than you guys have, but can't seem to find anything. Any suggestions? Also, as a note, since the first post is a bit dated, it seems most of the links under section "You will need" are broken. I'm looking for suitable PS/2 Kexts, and was wondering if this would do the trick: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=21952 (I'm really a noob, so I'm not sure if there is a difference with this and the one recommended by outZider.) Also, is "Netkas' dsmos.kext for 10A432/10.6.0" of significance? I can't seem to dig up any info on what exactly this does. I'm trying to weed out what I do and don't need. See, I used the most recent iATKOS build to install, and everything except the mouse, keyboard, one usb port (the solo one on the left-hand side), tablet, and wireless work. (haven't tested dual monitors, SD, and any other plugins, but the two right-hand usb's work fine, as well as usb keyboard, usb mouse, graphics and sound.) Though, what's odd is that the keyboard worked fine at first. I know this because there was a really loud intro video saying "welcome" in various languages, and it noticed my keyboard enough to allow me to turn down and mute the sound. It stopped working as soon as the screen got to the part where it tries to detect the keyboard by having you press the keys next to the shift buttons. Sorry for the length of this post. I wanted to include as much helpful info as possible. Thanks in advance for any help! -Love, Mixiekins <3
