    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    @davidianI have not been installing kexts to my HD OS for awhile now - I just leave them in the ESP. so the _kext-install.command is optional in that regard. in fact needs to be updated for use with Mojave to perhaps install gfx kexts in /S/L/E vs /L/E. i compared the 1.52 DSDT to the 1.46 DSDT and i could not find any differences that would matter for macOS. The fix-region clover patch may make a change so i always use that option. My 8GB/AUO LCD system has 2 disks, Disk0 (main disk) is Mojave and Windows10 and Disk1 (in my expansion bay) is a backup Mojave and HighSierra. So in essence has 3 OS. i use the same config.plist kexts to boot Mojave and HighSierra - and I cannot see any difference in performance etc. otherthan some minor issues with Mojave LightMode etc. both 10.13 and 10.14 have random glitches.

    hmm seems like some of the kexts are not loaded? I will try to find time re-test a complete installation. anyway seems like a good idea to include the HD 3000 GFX/Atheros kexts in the repo as there seems to be a lot Mojave interest.

    @davidian Ah. yup. I mentioned APFS here - but will update the guide as well.

    @davidian - I successfully tested the HD3000 kexts from Sierra and High Sierra with Mojave, but i recall a failure with the el cap gfx kexts. High Sierra is the last properly supported version for aHD 3000 system like the T420 As bedfellow suggested, move to that (first) to get the kexts you will need to move forward. if you have enough free space, perhaps create a 20 or 30 GB partition to test out mojave. For example, I dual boot using the same ESP/Clover config for High Sierra and Mojave. Note: be prepared for APFS - all my disks are formatted with APFS now - whether SSD or regular SATA now. and i use jackluke's script to switch from light to dark mode at night!

    @roto31 yes. for me mojave is running as good as high sierra - meaning there are the same glitches but there is not metal support so the light mode is not as good. you can read about the workarounds for HD3000 support in plenty of places. i explain it briefly in the guide. you will need to save a few files before you do the upgrade.
  7. you can try this config.plist -it has what @verleihnix described he did to make gfx work with WhatEvergreen.kext. seems to be what fleshboy has too. it sets properties for GFX - config.plist
  8. the AppleALC from the previous release was AppleALC (1.2.7-tluck) (custom for T460 - has extra 32MB DVMT patches) The latest AppleALC release is 1.3.3 (pretty much the same as 1.3.2 but with a few unrelated codec additions) A big difference between 1.2.x and 1.3.x is that the Intel FB patching is removed (so it doesnt patch DVMT anymore). WhatEvergreen.kext should provide this support AFAIK. see @kolodzieski post from Oct 4 about properties etc. - may need to update your config.plist files. sorry I cant test the builds.

    Sorry - Somehow i lost that item in config.mojave.plist from the latest release. i will add it back for a 1600x900 version. <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)</key> ... <dict> <key>#AAPL00,DualLink</key> <data> AQAAAA== </data> .... --- I just updated the github release for Mojave config.plist files. Notes: i have been experimenting with 2 things to find more stable system VirtualSMC vs FakeSMC - uncertain that this has any effect - but it works - just get less sensors. and removing slide value - seems to be a little better?

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    how does one override or set a key value. FNum is showing up with value 0 and should be set to 1? found it - set in Info.plist under Generic

    i don't understand what you mean by saying 1366x768 is not supported? the default config.plist should work just fine. the only difference between 1600x900 and 1366x768 is DualLink and Clover figures that out automatically now.

    @jenyunhuang I do not know exactly what is going on ... but maybe the battery manager kext is not loading? i have not tested the latest packs on Sierra. But in your case, maybe you should just stay with the older kexts from previous releases?

    @Dabman1988 - not sure whats up with your issue. I just posted a newer zip with latest Clover and kext updates. Could be a fix for your situation? otherwise the older releases still work for High Sierra right?

    @Fibroga did you reformatted gpt ? Most are mbr by default. And with hfs?
