    [Success] Lenovo z570 w/Lion 10.7.3 w/Core i7

    Interesting update - I am using the exact dsdt that macinsane is using (For his Lenovo B570) The specs for our laptops seem to be identical, with the exception of the processor; it is only slightly different. He has the Intel Core i3 2330M, while I have the Intel Core i3 2310M. I purchased this laptop from Office Depot for around 400 usd.. I have the 1024-3VU sub model. My WI-FI is now vanilla and my audio is using his AppleHDA. Everything seems to be working perfectly, and I don't have the annoying pop noise of VoodooHDA on login. (Got rid of VoodooLauncher completely)
  2. First off, let me start by saying this tutorial does NOT use a dsdt, but I've got everything working besides the card reader. Requirements: 1 Atheros AR9285 half-mini wifi card (For working internal wifi) 1 External USB keyboard (Hardly used) 1 External USB mouse OR existing mac os x lion installation. 1 USB Flash Drive 8GB+ 1 USB Flash Drive (Any Size) 1 CD-R/DVD-R/CD-RW/DVD-RW (Parted Magic) 1 DVD-R/DVD-RW (Mac OS X Distro) OR existing mac os x lion installation. 1 functional computer with internet access (Other than your lenovo) 1-2 hours of free time Downloads you'll need: http://partedmagic.c...hp?id=downloads (Parted Magic ISO) http://dl.dropbox.co..._ByCamiloml.exe (BIOS Mod for Atheros card) http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1299 (1299-AR9285_Lion.zip) http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1448 (1448-TRACKPAD.SYNAPTIC-GESTURE.zip) http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1384 (1384-VoodooBattery Lion.zip) http://www.mediafire...qz6korh640x89h5 (Ethernet + SleepEnabler - Courtesy of macinsane) [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (You'll also need Install Mac OS X Lion Application or OS X Lion USB) Nawcom's MBR patch pkg Mac OS X 10.7.2 Combo Update DMG (Not telling you where to get this) You'll also need a Mac OS X Distro ISO or an existing mac os x lion installation. STEP 1 (Optional, for working wifi): If you want working internal wifi, first thing you'll want to do is run the bios mod 45CN38WW_NWL_ByCamiloml.exe from your existing windows installation. If you removed your existing windows installation, you'll have to reinstall it for this. I'm not going to go into detail on how you would go about reinstalling windows, but if you can't do it.. I wouldn't recommend trying to install OS X. After that's done, you'll want to install your wifi card. Unplug your charger and remove the battery. Unscrew the back panel on your Lenovo Z570, and pop it off. In the lower left hand corner should be the wifi card (When the battery slot is on top). Remove the antenna wires from the card and unscrew the small black screw holding it in. Pop out the card and put in the atheros ar9285 in its place. Replace the antenna wires on the new card (White goes on the right when the pins are on the bottom). Re-screw in the tiny black screw and replace the back plate. Re-screw in the back plate. Done. Replace the battery and plug it back into the charger. STEP 2: First of all, take the second usb flash drive and put your downloaded files onto it. You will need this later. You're going to need to burn the Parted Magic ISO you downloaded to a cd/dvd. Using ImgBurn or another iso burning tool, burn the ISO file to the disk. You need this disk to make your harddrive boot into chimera/chameleon, as well as to resize your existing windows partition. It's best to have your existing windows partition defragmented before resizing it. During this step, you should also burn your Mac OS X distro iso to a dvd (If you don't have an existing lion installation). I used Niresh's mac os x 10.7.2 dvd.. but you can use any dvd you see fit. I will not tell you where to find this. STEP 3: You're going to boot from parted magic cd/dvd and select the default option. When it is done booting, go to the partition manager located on the desktop, and resize your ntfs windows partition. Then you'll want to format the unallocated space to fat32 or similiar (So mac diskutil can detect and erase it). Now you need to either boot from the mac os x distro dvd or make the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb thumb drive on an existing lion installation. If you're using an existing lion installation to make the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb drive: http://tonymacx86.bl...lion-using.html - Don't forget to patch with Nawcom's MBR patch! Otherwise, boot from mac os x distro cd.. and install mac os x lion. You may or may not need an external usb keyboard and mouse, depending on which iso you picked. To install, open diskutil and erase the fat32 partition and format it to a Mac OS X Journaled partition. Then proceed with installation. Make sure you get basic kexts in the customization area. (During installation, you may need to "wake up" the computer if installation seems to freeze halfway through.. just tap on the keyboard, and it will continue) Now complete installation by booting from HDD and going through the post install menu. Finally, make your [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb. http://tonymacx86.bl...lion-using.html - Don't forget to patch with Nawcom's MBR patch! STEP 4: Boot from the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb drive and select usb. Go to diskutil in the tools menu and erase the fat32/macosx partition and format it to Mac OS X Journaled. Proceed with installation, selecting the erased partition to install to. When it's done, you should reboot. This time, choose to boot from the HDD. It'll ask for a keyboard, so plug in your usb keyboard and then unplug it. You don't need it, laptop keyboard works just fine. Proceed with post installation menu. When you're done, start using lion. Plug in the second usb flash drive and get all of your downloaded files off of it. Open and run the Mac OS X 10.7.2 Combo update. While it is running, extract and open up [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Select the following options: * Drivers and bootloaders -> Disk -> 3rdParty eSATA * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> ElliotForceLegacyRTC * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> EvOreboot * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> FakeSMC * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> FakeSMC Plugins -> Motherboard Plugins * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> IOUSBFamily Rollback * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> NullCPUPowerManagement * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> USB 3.0 - NEC.. * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> PS/2 Keyboard/Mice (Will be replaced in a sec) * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> AppleRTC Patch for CMOS * Drivers and bootloaders -> Bootloaders -> Chimera v1.7.0 r1394 * Customization -> Themes -> Chameleon RC5 Default * OSx86 Software Wait for the Combo Update to finish before proceeding. DO NOT RESTART! Leave the Combo Update window open, and click continue on the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installer. Wait for it to finish. Open ShowAllFiles from Applications and click Show. Open up the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb drive in finder. Go to Extras folder. Drag the Extensions folder from Extras and place inside your HDD's Extra folder. Now, extract the AR9285 Lion.zip, the TRACKPAD.SYNAPTIC-GESTURE.zip, the VoodooBattery Lion.zip, and the LenovoZ570 zip. Copy the kext files from all of them to /System/Library/Extensions/, type in your password, replace. Put the prefpane for trackpad in /Library/PreferencePanes/ Run KextUtil in Applications, type in your password, wait for it to complete. You can now restart using the Combo Update installation window that should still be open. Boot from HDD again using the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb. Everything should work now except for audio. Proceed to Step 5. STEP 5: Now we are going to install the audio driver. We are using VoodooHDA 2.7.3 with VoodooLauncher to avoid random KP's on boot. Download VoodooHDA 2.7.3 and VoodooHDA prefpane from http://www.mediafire...7l25i5f87i8cjk2 Extract and place the prefpane in /System/Library/PreferencePanes/ Download VoodooHDA Launcher from http://code.google.c.../downloads/list As well as the VoodooHDA Launcher Patcher Install VoodooLauncher, then patch it with the VoodooPatcher and the VoodooHDA 2.7.3 kext. Go to System Preferences (Apple in top left) then to Users + Groups -> Login Items Remove the voodoolauncher default startup item with the minus. Add a new login item with the plus and add the voodolauncher application directly (if you want) then click the box to hide it. Lastly, remove AppleHDA.kext (back it up if you want) from /System/Library/Extensions/ STEP 6: We still need to get the hard drive to boot. To do this, visit the Chameleon website or the VoodooProjects forum and download Chameleon-2.0-RC4-r684-bin.tar.gz Extract and get the boot1h file. Place this on your downloads flash drive. Boot from Parted Magic. Run parted -l from terminal and find your mac os x partition. (HFS+) Mine was /dev/sda partition 2, so mine is /dev/sda2 Yours might be different. (Remember this) Insert your usb drive with boot1h. Open file manager and find it on the left hand menu. It should be /media/sdb or similiar cd to whatever path it is in terminal (for example "cd /media/sdb") Then run ls and make sure you see the boot1h file. Lastly, run this command replacing /dev/sda2 with your mac os x partition path. (You got it from above) dd if=boot1h of=/dev/sda2 bs=4096 Reboot. You should be able to boot from the hard drive now into both windows 7 and an almost 100% compatible mac os x lion installation. Enjoy.

    My bios has been default settings besides changing boot device order. Only other thing changed is that it's flashed via the tool provided in the thread linked on this thread (For the wifi card replacement). Are you sure your [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb drive was made correctly? You need an 8GB+ usb drive, as well as have it formatted to MBR. Otherwise it won't work.

    I usually use MSN the most. AIM is fine though, just need to remember my username/password for it, haha. PMing you my AIM screen name now.

    What error are you getting, could you please explain? Your BIOS screenshots are of no value to me until I know what's wrong.

    Google search works with my internal microphone. Mic is called "Microphone (ATAPI)" under the settings of applications that use it. Black, you wouldn't happen to have msn, skype, aim, gchat or any instant messenger, would you? It'd be easier to work out a problem via instant messaging as opposed to posting every half hour on a forum.. Let me know.

    I'm sure if I installed the plugin or whatever that I would be able to. My mic works on skype.

    My mic is working. Deleting AppleHDA kext only fixes the KP that happens 100% of the time. Even with it deleted, I was still getting a KP around 30% of the time.. always happening randomly. This problem is not unique to me, as hundreds of others who use VoodooHDA have the random KP issue as well. I do not have a dsdt, seems time consuming learning how to make/patch it.. especially when I don't really need it. I will look into the sleep kext on the B570 topic you linked to, thanks. EDIT: SleepEnabler works perfectly. I don't have to re-enable the wifi.. it just works on wake. Thanks! Only thing I need working now is the card reader, which probably won't be figured out by anyone in a while.

    The reason I used voodoolauncher is to avoid the KP that VoodooHDA randomly throws on boot. But to answer your question, my sleep doesn't wake up if the laptop lid is closed when it goes to sleep. Otherwise, it works just fine.. don't have to re-enable wifi or anything. It is because of this that I have disabled sleep all together, instead using the fn + f2 key combination to turn off the display when I want to conserve power. Either that, or I shut down my system. If someone could find a fix for this + the card reader (which is 0139 dev id.. sadly), then we'd have a completely functional system. EDIT: and yeah, I could write a better how-to.. just thought I'd throw out what I did as a guideline to someone who intends on installing os x lion on the lenovo z570.

    Hey guys, I recently started the project of getting hackintosh on my Lenovo Z570. After days of messing around with it, I eventually got to where I am now. First of all, it is essential you flash your bios and change out your wlan card. I did use the bios update linked on this thread. This is basically how I got my dual boot system to work: Installed lion with pre-made hackintosh DVD. (It's slow, have to hit keyboard halfway in installation or it will freeze. I assume it's a sleep function.) Using the lion installation, I installed [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to a flash drive. Patched [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with nawcom's mbr patch. What I did after that was install windows 7 to a partition I setup with gparted on Parted Magic, leaving room for soon to be mac os x partition. I reinstalled mac os x lion with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] on the second partition, you need the MBR patch to do it. Booted into lion with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] drive. Installed 10.7.2 Combo Update DMG, then [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] BEFORE restarting. On [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], I checked the following: * Drivers and bootloaders -> Disk -> 3rdParty eSATA * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> ElliotForceLegacyRTC * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> EvOreboot * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> FakeSMC * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> FakeSMC Plugins -> Motherboard Plugins * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> IOUSBFamily Rollback * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> NullCPUPowerManagement * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> USB 3.0 - NEC.. * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> PS/2 Keyboard/Mice (Will be replaced in a sec) * Drivers and bootloaders -> Miscellaneous -> AppleRTC Patch for CMOS * Drivers and bootloaders -> Bootloaders -> Chimera v1.7.0 r1394 * Customization -> Themes -> Chameleon RC5 Default * OSx86 Software I also copy the Extensions folder from the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb Extra folder to Lion HDD's Extra folder. I needed to do this to get my wifi kext working on the atheros ar9285 I replace the trackpad and wifi kexts with these I found online (OSx86.net) that worked for me: http://www.mediafire...e3px22mj874y5jj You'll also need to find voodoo battery for lion. (Add to /S/L/E) For sound, we need the voodoohda prefpane installed to /Library/PrefrencePanes as well as the VoodooHDA 2.7.3 kext. Download VoodooHDA Launcher from http://code.google.c.../downloads/list As well as the VoodooHDA Launcher Patcher Install VoodooLauncher, then patch it with the VoodooPatcher and the VoodooHDA 2.7.3 kext. Go to System Preferences (Apple in top left) then to Users + Groups -> Login Items Remove the voodoolauncher default startup item with the minus. Add a new login item with the plus and add the voodolauncher application directly (if you want) then click the box to hide it. Lastly, remove AppleHDA.kext (back it up if you want) from /S/L/E Restart with the 10.7.2 Combo Update window (that should still be open) That should get everything working (Besides card reader). It worked for me. Too boot off of the hard drive, download chameleon rc4 (google it) grab the boot1h file from the package, and put it on a spare flash drive. Download and burn Parted Magic to an iso and boot it. Run parted -l from terminal and find your mac os x partition Mine was /dev/sda partition 2 so, /dev/sda2 Insert your usb drive with boot1h. Open file manager and find it on the left hand menu. It should be /media/sdb or similiar cd to whatever path it is (for example "cd /media/sdb") Then run ls and make sure you see the boot1h file. Lastly, run this command replacing /dev/sda2 with your mac os x partition path. dd if=boot1h of=/dev/sda2 bs=4096 You should be able to boot from the hard drive now into both windows 7 and an almost 100% compatible mac os x lion installation. Enjoy. This is what I did and it works for me. I cannot guarantee it will work for you, but I don't see why it wouldn't.
