  1. Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide Release v2018.10.12 on GitHub Updated to Clover r4703 Updated Kexts SSDT updates for T460 Added Frank's T470p DSDT files Added T470 DSDT Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details. Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point. Devices and aspects working: Ethernet - Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work - 3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found. ACPI Files New Installation - Steps and Details Part 1 - OS Installation Part 2- Post OS Installation and Setup Notes on Custom Kexts

  3. Lenovo Thinkpad L420 macOS Sierra Guide Thanks to the good old mighty Clover Bootloader, we have so much better support for laptops and different alternative hardware. I have made a few HackBook Pros but without a shadow of a doubt this Lenovo L420 is almost a perfect Apple computer. Even better in some aspects if you ask me about it. Lenovo theme on Clover in my L420 I will be quoting a good fellow of the community, tluck , who made an awesome guide for his Lenovo T420, and he also helped me achieve better functionality. Regards to you my friend. I have already written a guide for installing and perfecting Mac OS X El Capitan on this PC, but I wanted to see how good Sierra could run, and OH BOY it is running like a charm. Here are the specs of the machine. In my case I added 8GB of RAM. I understand this is not a highly popular laptop outside corporations, I don’t even know if it was ever sold to the general public, so I guess this post will help me know that hahah anyway a friend of mine gave me two of them, one with i5 another with i3. This tutorial applies to any of those models. It should also apply to older versions of Mac OS X all the way until Snow Leopard (little modifications required as well as appropriate kexts) What is working WiFi , Bluetooth, Airdrop (Wifi replaced with Atheros AR9285) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated Intel HD3000 graphics Trackpad with 1 finger , 2 finger and 3 finger gestures keyboard as well as function keys (brightness, volume) Battery percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Sound working on ALC269 mobile DVD Drive DisplayPort audio and video VGA out USB 3.0 ExpressCard (Renesas) iMessage and Facetime Recovery Partition What is not working You tell me 1. Creating the install media The best way to install macOS to our Hackintosh is definitely to create a USB with the latest version of macOS Sierra (10.12.5 as of writing this guide) and to use the createinstallmedia method. For that you will need either a Macintosh computer, an existing Hackintosh or a Virtual Machine running OS X 10.6 or above. This way you will end up with a clean vanilla install , and with a recovery partition capable of booting and capable of using FindMyMac / FindMyiPhone I won’t go into too much details about this since this is one of the first things you should know when attempting to Hackintosh. This procedure is for a new macOS installation using a USB Installer. Download macOS from the App Store - it is freely available One can build a macOS USB installer with the standard macOS installer app downloaded from the "App Store". Download and extract the zip file from this post to build a Clover-based USB installer. This same bundle will be installed later on HD. Install macOS to a GPT formatted disk using the standard Install macOS.app downloaded from the Apple Store. Create a macOS USB installer Partition an 8GB (or larger) USB formatted with GUID Partition Table (GPT) - use the Partition Options... menu to change from MBR to GPT - Name the partition USB - the install process will rename it, but it matches the script below. - Use format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) (formerly OS X Extended) Note: if you have a larger USB (say 16GB) you can split into 2 8GB partitions, so you can have 10.12 and 10.11 installers on the same USB key Run this command to copy the bits to the USB key: Note: if using an older version of macOS, replace with the corresponding app name. sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 2. Install bootloader (Clover) to install media You should select your USB in the Clover installer and then hit “Customize” Select the next options: Install Clover in the ESP Install boot0ss in MBR Clover EFI 64bits SATA CSMVideoDxe-64 EmuVariableUEFI-64 OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 Fat64 3. Configuring the bootloader After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi. Because this PC doesn’t have any UEFI you should also install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi to the drivers64 folder. Open the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folderIn the above mentioned “other” folder. Place the kexts that I will quote next (you can download the ones attached to the post, but I always recommend the latest versions) : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext CodecCommander.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) GenericUSBXHCI.kext (only if you use an USB3.0 ExpressCard) RealtekRTL8111.kext USBInjectAll.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext (tluck's version) L420 kextpack.zip Notes on VoodooPS2 (tluck) VoodooPS2Controller.kext (v1.8.25f) - New custom T420 version of RehabMans's PS2 Keyboad/TouchPad/TrackPoint - This version has extra T420 definitions in the Info.plist files. Tweaks to help with TrackPoint on startup Jakibaki's cut/paste fix for middle button + scrolling fix. if MiddeMouseScroll is set to true scrolling TrackPoint works. Sierra PrefPane integration and other fixes (smoothness and caps-lock) by usr-sse2 (see this post on GitHub) Modified Info.plist(s) to add LENOVO T420 override settings. ​TrackPad pressure FingerZ value set to 47 - up from default of 30 - change to suite your touch in VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2TrackPad.kext/Contents/Info.plist Various Default overrides such as MouseMultiplier X and Y for TrackPoint. Note: VoodooPS2Controller keyboard mappings have 3 or 4 finger swipe left/right to back/forward configured for Safari browser vs space swipe Optional Key Map: This map works in El Capitan. Since the NX keys are in a state of flux for Sierra - it is disabled by default now. If you would want to use this new map, edit the Info.plist file and rename the T420 key map entry. The F1-F15 key mappings are VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.key.plist: F1 - LCD Brightness Down F2 - LCD Brightness Up F3 - Mission Control App Selector F4 - Launchpad F5 - F6 - F7 - Mirror Displays F8 - Disable/Enable TouchPad F9 - F10 - Mute Volume F11 - Volume Down F12 - Volume Up PrtSc - Scan Previous Track ScrLck - iTunes Play/Pause Pause - Scan Next Track Insert - Eject After all the kexts are in the correct folder you should tweak your config.plist as follows, I recommend using a proper plist editor , the best is Xcode. config.plist.zip Lenovo mostly whitelist the Wifi cards on their laptops (and some desktops) so you will have to use a custom BIOS for this. There is one here luckily. If you need me to explain how to flash it then you shouldn’t really be Hackintoshing in the first place. After you have flashed the BIOS make sure you set the SATA controller to AHCI. You should be able to boot from the Clover USB and install Mac OS X Remember to use a GUID partition scheme for the drive you will use. Recovery partition should be generated automatically by the OS X installer. 4. Hopefully you boot and get to install macOS well. Boot Clover from USB Installer and select Install macOS Install the OS on your GPT disk on the macOS partition. Make sure the drive is formatted using: Scheme: GUID Partition Map (GPT) Partition Name: macOS Format: macOS Extended (Journaled) Dual BOOT tip: If you plan to dual boot Windows from the same HD - DO NOT make the 2nd partition NTFS or ExFAT with the Disk Utility app. Make them both "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" Size the 2 partitions appropriately - but later you will delete/reformat the 2nd partition for Windows. Click through GUI Install menus and wait for the installation to fully complete - on a spinning disk takes about 30-45 minutes. Follow these Notes and Tips: When the installer screens shows: "To pair a Bluetooth keyboard, turn it on and wait for your computer to connect to it.” Hit the Space Bar to get past this step. When installer seems to hang at: "About a second remaining” Don’t Panic, this "second" may take about 10 minutes or more to finish. Just wait for the installer to reboot the computer and continue the installation. The whole install process takes about 1 hour to complete. On the first boot from the HD when asked: "How Do You Connect?” Select: “My computer does not connect to the Internet” You can set up the network later after installation of the NIC driver kext. Your Intel WiFi will not work. Period. 5. Next you have to install the boot loader to the HDD You should select your USB in the Clover installer and then hit “Customize” Select the next options: Install Clover in the ESP Install boot0ss in MBR Clover EFI 64bits SATA CSMVideoDxe-64 EmuVariableUEFI-64 OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 Fat64 Install all RC scripts to target partition After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Again we install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi. Because this PC doesn’t have any UEFI you should also install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi to the drivers64 folder. Also copy your ACPI files and config.plist at the right places. 6. In order to get everything working properly , follow these guidelines for ACPI tables patching. Firstly, press F4 at Clover GUI in order to dump the native ACPI tables. You will most probably get a crash, a red screen full of weird black numbers and strange symbols, do not worry, just force shutdown. At the next boot if you look in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin you should have a bunch of files. After getting MaciASL and acpica tools from RehabMan (always updated) and installing them, and adding rehabman’s laptop dsdt patch repository, which is this: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch Delete all files except DSDT, SSDT-0 and SSDT-1 in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin You should decompile the DSDT , SSDT-0 and SSDT-1 using the following commands (make sure you create a .txt document containing the following external references and place it in the same place where the ACPI files are) External(MDBG, MethodObj, 1)External(_GPE.MMTB, MethodObj, 0)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECWT, MethodObj, 2)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECRD, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECMD, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGPO, MethodObj, 2)External(_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD02._BCM, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.SAT0.SDSM, MethodObj, 4)External(_GPE.VHOV, MethodObj, 3)External(_SB.PCI0.XHC.RHUB.TPLD, MethodObj, 2) Then do: cd /path/to/your/filesiasl -da -dl -fe refs.txt *.aml After obtaining the .dsl files you should open them and check for errors.The only error you will find will be in one of the SSDTs and it can be fixed using the Remove _PSS placeholders patch to fix that SSDT that only contains info about the CPU and is full of “Package (0x06)” When your files are nice and clean and in .dsl format you can happily apply the following patches to DSDT Use the patch “Rename GFX0 to IGPU” Use the patch “Rename B0D3 to HDAU” Use the patch "DTGP" (easy to find with our buddy Google) Use the patch "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" Use the patch "HPET Fix" Use the patch "SMBUS Fix" Use the patch "IRQ Fix" Use the patch "RTC Fix" Use the patch "OS Check Fix" Use the patch "Fix Mutex with non-zero SyncLevel" Use the patch "Add IMEI" Use the patch “6 Series USB” Use the patch "USB PRW 0x6D" Use the patch "Audio Layout id 3" Use the patch "L420 battery patch" For Brightness keys (Q14 and Q15 in DSDT) In Method _Q14 add at the end: Notify (PS2K, 0x0206)Notify (PS2K, 0x0286) In Method _Q15 add at the end: Notify (PS2K, 0x0205)Notify (PS2K, 0x0285) If you are lost with ACPI here is how you should place the code: Little bonus, since the ThinkVantage key does absolutely nothing, I patched the DSDT so that when you hit that key, the fans will remain at 100% speed all the time. Hit it again and they go back to auto mode Cool Right? Replace your _Q19 method with this (credits to tluck) Method (_Q19, 0, NotSerialized) // _Qxx: EC Query { Name (FANS, One) Store (HFSP, FANS) XOr (FANS, 0x80, Local0) If (Local0) { Store (0x80, HFSP) } Else { Store (0x07, HFSP) } } After all the ACPI tables are properly patched save them all and compile your tables cd /path/to/patched/tablesiasl *.dsl After getting the resulting patched aml files, place them in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched for Clover to load itFinally you will need to generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen.sh Note: - If you want working brightness in Sierra make sure to download my ACPI files pack and use the provided SSDT-PNLF - Also if you use Atheros AR9285 like me you can use the attached SSDT-2 and see if it works, otherwise provide here your DSDT 7. After you have your DSDT, SSDT-0, SSDT-1 and SSDT (the one generated by the script) , along with SSDT-PNLF and SSDT-2 if you need them, place them all together in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched and in the ACPI section of your config.plist make sure to "Drop OEM" tables and set the "Sorted Order" Overall I would say this laptop is quite perfect for a Hackintosh , I use it for a few months and I love it, hope you do too. This Hack is functioning almost 100% in Mac OS X and certainly it performs so much better than in Windows Enjoy our fully functional Hack General Notes and Random Fixes The stock Intel WiFi will not work. The common approach is use a modded BIOS and replace the WiFi with a Broadcom or Atheros chip (I went for AR9285). Enable (turn on) Bluetooth so the green light is showing on the LCD bezel (do from Windows or Ubuntu). Also make sure the side switch is set to green too! When using external headphones or speakers, may need to plug and unplug 1 or 2 times for recognition. iMessage/Facetime may not register without overriding the Clover generated values with real ROM and MLB values from a real Apple Mac. Search thread for ROM to get more info. ​Clover can possibly generate proper values and inject using RtVariables - use mac address -- see wiki for details. Hibernation - Use OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi instead of OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi UEFI driver for restart from hibernation. Suggested settings if you don't want or use hibernation: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 rm /var/vm/sleepimage if you want hibernation, then set hibernate mode to 7 (mode 7 is like mode 3 but without encryption) - may need to manually edit this value into the plist file now. sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 7 Note: Booting up from the hibernated image may have jumbled or blank LCD until you do a sleep/wake cycle to reset the LCD. Add boot option darkwake=0 if you would like to disable power nap and have the lid wake the gfx instead of hitting extra key. TrackPoint may not be responsive on startup (random occurance) - a sleep/wake cycle should revive it. Here are my patched tables if you need them L420 patched ACPI Sierra.zip

    Lenovo G40-80, kexts

    Olá gente. Já faz um tempo que eu venho pesquisando sobre o Hackintosh e a obsessão só vem crescendo. Li muita coisa mas ainda não tenho total certeza em como fazer o processo. Meu notebook é um Lenovo G40-80, gostaria da opinião de vocês se realmente é aconselhável fazer, se rodaria legal e coisas assim. System Info está aqui (https://i.imgur.com/4EMTdRc.png) Já sei como criar o pendrive bootavel e que minha placa de rede não é compatível, usarei um adaptador usb até a outra chegar. O que eu mais venho duvida é sobre pós-instalação e sobre quais kexts devo usar. Caso for possível o hack, farei um tutorial exclusivo para quem tem essa maquina e está sofrendo também. Agradeceria muito as vossas ajudas.
  5. I start this topic to make my Lenovo Thinkpad W540 usable with High Sierra I followed many guides but this one started by @tluck made me most progress: My setup as in signature I will update first post with statuses of working features: Graphics: Nvidia Quadro - disabled Intel HD 4600 - working @ 1920x1080 and 1,5GB RAM (had to set ig-plaform-id as Haswell desktop, mobile do not work) using intelGraphicsFixUp.kext Sound: internal speakers and mic works with AppleACL.kext and profile 28 USB: i boot MacOS from USB drive and it works, mouse and pendrive also works USB power not work yet, so USB WiFi dongle and iPhone connection not work (no power @ USB) IOReq finds only USB 3.0 controller not USB 2.0 even though I have 2 ports USB 3.0 and 2 ports USB 2.0 Integrated Camera: recognised in IOReq but not working now (probably due to USB) Bluetooth: as USB but works without problem Ethernet: works with intelMausiEthernet.kext Keyboard: internal is PS2 so VoodooPS2Controller.kext is needed - some mappings I would like to have different but works Touchpad: works with VoodooPS2Controller.kext from @tluck topic Trackpoint: One time works mostly not - debugging in progress Batery Status: not working Integrated WiFi: intel - not working Sleep / Hibernate: not working Backlight: not working Other found issues: besides that graphics works @ 1920x1080 and have a lots of ram window shadows (especially dock shadow) looks bad External VGA: not tested yet External Mini Display Port / Thunderbolt: not tested yet I will post my clover / debug config later

  7. Hello! I'm trying to install El Capitan on my Lenovo Yoga 300 but I can't even get any bootloader to show up after turning on the computer... I tried Enoch, Chameleon and Clover and neither of them works. My BIOS can't see Enoch USB, but sees Clover. Unfortunately, when I try to boot them I can see nothing... I tried Clover in UEFI only mode, with Legacy mode, but no success. Please help me! My laptop has Intel Celeron N3050 with Intel HD.

  13. Hey guys, So after a few days I managed to install OS X on my Lenovo E540 laptop with a modified kernel but I am having a few problems, mainly graphics and audio. Lets start with graphics, I had assumed it would work natively, I was wrong. I have an Intel Core i5 4200M with 4600 graphics, it started out coming up as a generic adapter with 3MB of vram then I added 'GE=Yes' and 'IGP=Yes' and it identified itself. I then added 'IntelAzulFB' and a number to my boot .plist and as I go through the numbers the ram changes (vram has changed to 7mb so I guess thats progress? ). I'm only up to 6 so I'll try the rest but I thought I'd get a head start on seeking another opinion. Now I don't have a DSDT nor do I know how to compile/patch one, if anyone could take a shot at creating one for me I'd be very grateful! I have attached my DSDT in .dsl and .aml form (DSDT.zip). I would have preferred the 4600 to work natively but if it could be injected (correct term?) into my DSDT so that it's compatible with any future updates (10.9.x) or OS's (e.g. Yosemite) then that would be great. I did move all AppleIntel* kexts to a back up folder (via Chameleon '-s') but that did nothing, I have restored them now. I am using a Realtek RTL8111.kext to get my ethernet working and Voodoo PS/2 to get my trackpad and keyboard working. Interestingly I now have to boot with '-f' to enable. Also have to specify my resolution in my boot .plist, would like that to be managed by OS (same thing I know, just a preference). Heres my boot .plist: <key>GUI</key> <string>No</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>IGPEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>IntelAzulFB</key> <string>6</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f</string> <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>/Extra/SMBios.plist</string> MacBookAir6,2 (Haswell) <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> Again please note that with 'IntelAzulFB 6' I am still going through the numbers. Also my audio is Conexant, don't know if that helps, Voodoo didn't work even after deleting AppleHDA. I've also got a weird icon in the status bar, no idea why its there or what it does, powering off card does nothing. Thanks for taking the time to read (or skim) over this and if you need any more info or have a suggestion, please do reply

  16. Hola Amigos, he instalado varias veces de maneras diferentes el LM, pero siempre ocurre lo mismo. Mientras se usa la Laptop Lenovo z480 (Intel I3. 8 GB. HD 3000 con Wifi Dongle TPlink) se congela Puede pasar: Navegando con safari o chrome, viene bien, abrís una ventana y pum, se cuelga el cursor. Hay que reiniciar. Puede pasar mirando un video. Descargando un torrent. Pero repito, no siempre. O sea, aveces navego horas sin problemas, o veo decenas de vídeos sin problemas, pero aleatoriamente, lo hace. Por ahora no le puse el sonido porque se daba el fallo mas a menudo. He revisado el .log buscando alguna causa y nada tiene coherencia. Lo que hace siempre que se queda colgado, aumenta la velocidad del ventilador apenas se queda colgada la flecha. ​Otros detalle, no siempre, hace un mal redibujado de los elementos, como un ruidito en un icono visual, que si uno lo arrastra se arrastra el refresco de pantalla. Info de la Laptop Les paso mi chamelon.boot Y el listado de Kext y otros items Tampoco, luego de probar varios métodos puedo acceder al App Store. Debido que si ponía PCIROOT en 1 por ejemplo, se quedaba colgado al iniciar. Algo para aconsejarme?

    Lenovo ThinkPad W530

    I bought a W530 machine back on Black Friday of 2012. It's a very nice and powerful machine."(Thank you for reading http://www.insanelym...ort-tonymacx86/ )"we managed to get to a condition where it will boot with a few flags and be limited in its capabilities. Anybody here with experience in this machine? Or is willing to help me (and maybe others) out?
  18. My company just issued me a Lenovo T530 to replace my 5 year old Dell Inspiron 1720 (running 10.6.8). I am hoping to run Mountain Lion on this new Lenovo T530. Any one have a T530 working with Mountain Lion? This is the high-res model with a Core i5 CPU. The searching I have turns up a couple of T430 that are sort of working and I can't find anything on a T530. I am hoping someone has this working can provide some pointers or as DSDT file. I am going to start working from the T420 install threads tonight and see how far I get. Thanks, Kevin

    Lenovo G570 Brightness Control

    Hello, first I'm sorry about my english but I'm French. I successfully installed Lion 10.7.2 via iAtkos L2 with QE/CI working on a Lenovo G570 (Intel Core i3-2310m with HD 3000 Graphics) I can set brightness following this post : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=236835&st=0 but I have a problem. The brightness steps aren't good : when the slider is on 0, screen goes black but if I put slider on 1 position, brightness is at 50/60%, which is too high. I think we can fix this with DSDT but I don't know how. There is my DSDT : http://www.mediafire.com/?9vkjbj8nw1qh73s Thanks for your replies.

    Lenovo Legion Y720

    Fala Pessoal! Comprei um notebook Lenovo Legion Y720, anteriormente usava um Dell L502X que se deu muito bem com o Mac OS, mas esse Y720 não achei ninguém que tenha conseguido fazer ele ao menos bootar... Procurei vários tópicos de modelos parecidos e juntando todas as informações consegui instalar o Mac OS High Sierra nele (créditos ao rehabman pelo config da intel 630 e a toda a comunidade, só testei vários kexts e configurações, não criei nada), incrivelmente ele está bem estável, só que precisa otimizações e eu sinceramente não sei se sou capaz de realizar todas elas. Então estou postando a minha pasta EFI que uso pra botar nele afim de que mais pessoas possam usar o Mac OS no Legion e podermos otimizar ele o máximo possível. Metodo de instalação utilizado: 1 - Baixar o instalador oficial pela própria Mac App Store (ou algum método alternativo) 2 - Criar um pendrive de instalação com a linha de comando no terminal: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/NomeDoPenDrive --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 3 - Montar a partição EFI e copiar a pasta efi desse post dentro dela. (Usei o clover configurator pra montar a partição efi) 4 - Pressionar F12 na inicialização do Notebook pra escolher o pendrive como disco de boot 5 - Bootar o instalador e instalar normalmente, não precisa de mais nada! (pode ser que a instalação demore horas, parece que é um problema do USB3.0, aguarde com paciência) O que funciona? Rede Bluetooth Bateria Portas USB 3.0 Audio (voodoo) Camera Intel HD Graphics 630 O que não funciona? wifi thunderbolt (ainda não testei mas nem reconhece) Mini display port HDMI Nvidia gtx 1060 Sleep/awake Controle de brilho Provável que a gtx 1060 não será reconhecida, tenho esperança de que seja pelo menos em uma HDMI e que possa usar os CUDA cores dela, mas é sonho, já reconheço! Toda a ajuda é muito bem vinda,agradeço desde já a todos que puderem ajudar, grande abraço a todos!

  21. Hello all, This is not my first hackintosh build, but I've never seen this error before. I'm installing Mavericks onto a Lenovo Y510P laptop. Thank You,
  22. Ello! A complete part-newbie here. Complete, because this is/will be my first foray into the "Hackintosh Scene", but partly because I'm not a newbie concerning computers in general. I know my way around linux distros, Windowses and Macs. I used to run a mac (exclusively) for years, but that was a long time ago. I still have that Dual-1GHz G4 PowerMac, but let's face it, it IS old. Latest it can do is a 10.5 and being a PPC.. yeah, well, it's not fast But the point is, any instructions of info you have does not need to be in a any-fool-can-do-it -format. I do not fear the command line Anyway. My main computers is x64 Win7 machine, but Windows is... well, Windows. I play games on it. But! I have a secondary machine, a Lenovo/IBM ThinkCentre M55 (C2D E6600 @2.4GHz, 4Gb RAM) with a slew of additional hardware: nVidia GT240 (currently installed),and others that I can swap if it is better: nVidia 8400GS, Radeon 3600Pro and a Radeon 4200 (but installing that would require modifying the cooler) and a couple of HDDs. A few USB sticks, couple of different WiFi USB sticks and a handful of USB audio dongles. The machine currently runs a multiboot selection of ElementaryOS Luna, Haiku R4 and Ubuntu 0414 (on a shared 80Gb disk, with an unused spare 160Gb available). The "dream" (so to speak) is to have that machine running newest-that-it-can-run Mac OS X as a primary and the possibility to boot into Haiku and some flavor of (Debian-based) linux. So you think that would be possible? I read a couple of "getting started" guides, but I can't follow any of them to the letter. Mostly because most of them are either dead links, or private/removed YouTube videos or some such. The ones that are available rely on the availability of a recent Mac computer. I do have a Mac mini (2006), but as that is only capable of running 10.6.8 (which it is), I cannot download the Mavericks installer on it (at least that I know of I can't). Note here: I'm not adverse of buying any required pieces of software, no. I don't just want a "free mac". I'm perfectly willing to pay for the OS or possibly any small hardware additions, I just can't afford a full-blown Mac right now. (Also I really would like to get to use this "spare" computer and multiboot it with those systems). But with only the Mac mini, I can't even buy the OS from the Apple Store, because it is not supported. So, could someone (please) direct me to somewhere that has more info, or tell me a bit more of what I need to do. What I THINK I need to do is: a) A way to download (and buy) the Mavericks Installer. (I believe the best bet is to download it to the Mac mini?) some way to make a bootable media (USB preferred, I do have 16Gb stick, but DVD is a possibility). c) transfer needed kexts/other "tweaks" to allow it to run on the M55. d) configure the M55 with optimum hardware (I'd hope the GT240 would be OK, as it is the most powerful of those that I can easily install). e) way to boot and install the system to the M55 f) post-install configuration and installing required drivers. of which c) and f) I have absolutely no idea of what I need to do. But mostly, I need to know if this is indeed even possible. I can settle for single-booting Mac OS X on the M55 if multiboot is out of the question, but can the M55 even run Mac OS X without modification and if so, which version?
  23. I have a lenovo Z500 with Intel Core I5 3230m. I installed it with myhack and now i can only boot into safe mode. When i don't boot into safe mode i get ntfs warning error or still waiting for root device. I don't know what to do. And also i cant get the elan touchpad working correctly. Can anyone help
  24. Hello, I have a Lenovo ThinkPad E540 and was envying OS X after watching WWDC and thought I'd see if I could get it running. Before I go any further, I understand that laptops are the worst machines for a hackintosh but I'm not going to spend hundreds on a PC that I will use a few times a month. Let's start with my specs; Intel i5 4200M Haswell Intel HD 4600 graphics & GT 740M 2GB graphics SanDisk 240GB Extreme SSD & WD Scorpio Blue 1TB 8GB 1333MHz RAM Full HD (1080p) embedded DisplayPort (eDP) built-in display I started with using MyHack with MBR support as I want to dual boot Win7 and OS X on SSD, I know that's not practical but I have no space on my other HDD. When that didn't boot I tried http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/ (as it has worked plenty of times in the past), but same thing happened, the Apple logo flashed and it restarted. I tried booting with every flag I've used in the past, "-f GraphicsEnabler=No dart=0" worked for me with a previous machine but I've used a combination of '-s, -x, -v, -f, GE=Yes/No, PCIRootUID=0/1, then I started changing BIOS settings beginning with disabling VT-d and switching from Nvidia Optimus to just intergrated graphics but again no. SATA is on ACHI just FYI. First I'd like to ask if anyone can see any problems either hardware, BIOS or software related. Secondly if everythings alright, what am I doing wrong? Now I do have an Intel 7260 wireless card installed, I understand that this will never work so I was wondering if the intergrated Realtek PCIe GBE (8110 I think, or 8xxx not sure) would at least work? I've also tried deleting all Apple Intel HD drivers. Any information or thoughts would be very helpful, I am using a legally obtained version of Maverics (MAS) but I think it's 10.9 or 10.9.1, will redownload latest version from store. Thank you in advanced, Dan207
  25. Hey everyone. I had the pleasure to set up OSX 10.6 on a tiny Samsung NC-10 and now I'm pushing it further to install on a something newer. And geez, there are so many different things around. I want to make myself at home by posting this personal thread of mine where I'll post everything about my tries to make my new laptop munch on Mac OS and not get indigestion in the process. Let me show you my hardware first. Lenovo G710 Laptop CPU: Intel Core i5-4200 M Dual-Core@2.50GHz That's a Haswell architecture that doesn't want to boot at all unless I use an xpcm-free kernel. RAM: 4GB GPU: HD4600 (ven:8086 dev:0416) There's an NVIDIA Optimus-capable in there that won't be used with OSX. AUDIO: IDT (ven:111D dev:7695) WLAN: BCM43142 (ven:14E4 dev:4365) I already know this has to be replaced. LAN: AR8171 (ven:1969 dev:10A0) I've seen that this can be told to work with OSX. Additional things: USB 3.0, Bluetooth, Multitouch, HDMI output, VGA output I won't test the card reader on this one, because it seems broken under all OSes and I'm too lazy to fix it. :F I have successfully installed Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu (in legacy mode, no UEFI) on this and managed to triple-boot it with a Niresh Mavericks test install. BEFORE THE FLAMING HAPPENS: I've done that as a test run to check what steps would be necessary to do during the proper install. The lessons I've learned are: * this PC needs an xpcm-free core in order to boot at all, * Niresh booted without any additional kernel arguments (just Enter at its Chameleon variant got me into OSX), * the system itself booted; the things that do not work straight out of the box are QE/CI, audio, LAN, WLAN, power management, * I could take myself a photo with the builtin camera, * it booted up with the native 1600x900 resolution only the first time, then I suspect that the Niresh autoconfiguration utility that runs at first boot broke stuff and I had to remove AppleIntel* from S/L/E using the builtin grafix utility in order to get it to boot again... in ugly 1024x768. Now it's time to do the thing the way it should be done: the vanilla way. *cracks knuckles* At least I'll understand how everything works. I'm reading up on http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298027-guide-aio-guides-for-hackintosh/ at the moment and waiting for my 10.9.5 .dmg to finish downloading. I'm going to create and post a full install guide for this laptop. I want to use Clover as my main bootloader without touching the MBR partitioning scheme. My journey with vanilla Mavericks is going to happen slowly over the week (or a few) Any advice you would like to give me at this very moment? Things I should or totally shouldn't do? Should I perhaps go with Yosemite instead (though I fear the xpcm-free issue isn't resolved there yet AFAIK)? Have I made any big mistakes this far that need to be corrected? I hope that once it's all done, we all have one more detailed Hackintosh HOWTO. :3
