    Lenovo Thinkpad x220 - 10.9.5 pack and info

    I tried to use what I discovered in this thread and on a few others sites to put together a concise guide to installing OS X 10.10 Yosemite on the ThinkPad x220: http://x220.mcdonnelltech.com/ Links to all of the necessary kexts and utilities are in the guide. Hope this helps. There's a feedback form at the bottom of the guide if you find anything that isn't accurate.

    [How-To] Dell Inspiron B130 Guide

    Thanks so much for this guide - it really made my installation easy. One step I found I was able to skip was the first dongle (pins 1-6 and 2-12) - my B130 worked fine from start to finish with only the pin-6-to-pin-12 dongle described in part 3. To save a few steps for others with the Dell 1370 Wireless card, I've attached two pre-patched files: IO80211Family.kext.zip NetworkInterfaces.plist.zip To install: 1. Unzip both files 2. Replace your current IO80211Family.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/ with this patched IO80211Family.kext 3. Move NetworkInterfaces.plist to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ 4. Repair disk permissions using Disk Utility Thanks again, microsoft whiz IO80211Family.kext.zip NetworkInterfaces.plist.zip
