  1. Hi, I've got W520 with running High Sierra on it with configuration based on the great guide by @tluck (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285678-lenovo-thinkpad-t420-with-uefi-only). I works great with integrated video card, the only thing that I'm unable to get working is Nvidia card (Nvidia Quadro 1000m). By far I tired the following configuration: SMBIOS set to MBP 10.1 / 9.1 / 8.1 Nvidia Web Driver 378.10.10.10.20.107 Nvidia enabled in the Clover Video card set to discrete in BIOS As a result, after boot, I've got flickering screen with disappearing windows and some artifacts, unfortunately not usable at all. Does anyone has managed to get this discrete card working on this notebook? Thanks
  2. System Info: https://docs.google.com/document/d/19HOzEFDKS64fI-JkpOQDayzA1RVQLutf_geucNMtiLQ/edit?usp=sharing Let's say: I'm trying to create a Bootable Hackintosh USB for Mac OS High Sierra [Latest Stable Version], and I'm using a Virtual Machine [with Mac OS High Sierra] on my Windows 10. Specific Questions: What BIOS Settings should I change for - LENOVO Motherboard BIOS? What should I keep in mind when using a Virtual Machine [MacOS] for the Bootable USB Creation Process? Should I use Clover EFI Bootloader or Clover Configurator, or Both? What settings should I change change in those? Does it matter which version(s) of Clover Sofwares I use? Will they support USB Creation for ALL versions of MAC Operating Systems? [Or do they only support some versions of Mac OS?] Thanks in Advance for your help!
  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

    Cannot change TrackPoint speed T420s

    I have VoodooPS2 kext installed. Tried to google the solution but only found changing MouseMultipliers which won't help - I changed all of them, tried to set around 3x times bigger values, rebuild kext cache, replaced the ones in EFI, rebooted but nothing changed, TrackPoint is still slow. Is there any other way to do it? I'm also attaching my problem_reporting files. debug_30176.zip

  6. Hi all. I just got into the Hackintosh scene a couple of weeks ago, and got 2 Hackintosh builds up and running from doing a lot of reading on tonymacx86, Reddit/r/Hackintosh,OSXLatitude, InsanelyMac… I got a Desktop configured, which was relatively easy compared to getting OSX running on my ThinkPad E320. What’s working so far I got almost every little frigging thing working on the ThinkPad E320 (minus the Wifi, which is a very typical Laptop woe I’ve found. I’ve resorted to a nano USB wifi adapter while a Broadcom chip ships). CPU GPU Webcam Intel HDA Keyboard/Trackpad Ethernet USB Wi Fi Bluetooth Internal Display, HDMI out, VGA out So what’s wrong? The only problem is that the laptop overheats. I do not know what exactly is wrong, but I think the fans are simply not spinning fast enough. I used to run Linux and Windows on this very laptop before, and the fans would spin up significantly every time the processor load would increase. After I Hackintoshed it, the fans can barely be heard even when the CPU temp goes up to 80-90 degrees celsius! And even though my CPU is detected (with 25 P-States) the battery life is really really bad. I get roughly 2 hours on a full 100% charge on a 6 Cell Battery. I tried patching my DSDT and a little bit, but mostly it’s the same from another DSDT I found for my motherboard and model - its the Intel HM65 Chipset. The DSDT worked well, and I had to make a slight tweak for getting the Intel HDA. I used Piker-Alpha’s ssdtgen script to create the SSDTs for my machine and everything boots up and gets detected like I said. What I’ve tried so far / more information for diagnosis 1. Underclocking with SSDT/DSDT - Fail I’ve tried solving the overheating/battery life issues by forcing an under clock. I entered lower values into Piker’s script to do this (the script generates SSDTs without any errors when I put in lower Base Frequency and Turbo Frequency and TDP values) but the SSDTs cause the infamous error- P-Step Stepper Error 18 at step 35 Error. I think the newer SSDTS should work, but I think my DSDT is referencing the old SSDT with 25 P-States or something like that, and that’s causing the P-Step error on boot (this is just my hypothesis, I’m entirely unsure). I have included my working DSDT and SSDT in the post here so the community can have a look and help patch these files to underclock my processor to 1.8 Ghz with 2.2 Turbo (think that would be easier on the overheating/battery drain). 2. Underclocking with Clover - Fail again My second approach to under clock was to edit the CloverCPU configuration portion. I entered lower Frequency and Bus Speed and 0x00FA Latency values (according to Clover Wiki that Latency is best for Notebooks). But I saw no difference, and this experimentation failed as well. Some other weird things Looking at HWSensors app and Intel Power Gadget I can see the CPU stepping working (variation in the frequency curve) but I definitely don’t see 25 steppings (as the chart’s jumps are not that granular) which Piker’s script outputs for my current (working, stock clocked, linked in post) SSDTs. DPCI Manager shows around 6 P-States in fact. AppleIntelCPUPowerManangementInfo.kext by Rehabmanshows around 25 P-States, but then again the kext only outputs those messages during boot. Could it be that during boot 25 P-States are detected initially and as the kernel loads it’s lost for some conflict? HWSensors also does not have a Fan control portion either (are my fans not being detected at all?). So I can’t manually control my Fans either. Please help. I would ideally like my CPU under clocked and my fans working properly. This is the only step left for my beloved HackBook. Could the USB wifi adapter be screwing things up? The laptop goes into sleep, deep sleep and wakes up fine. I spent a lot of time getting it to this far, just need help with the power management/fan control portion, so please help if possible. I’m attaching some files so that maybe you guys could take a look and help diagnose the issue - [1] My Clover Config [2] DSDT/SSDT [3] IOReg [4] AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext output (I installed the kext and it only shows the output in the boot log :/ ) [5] KextStat dump Laptop Detailed Specs LENOVO ThinkPad Edge E320 Model - 1298CTO Mobo - Intel Express HM65 Chipset CPU - Core i5 2520M (Sandy) (2.5 Ghz to 3.2 Turbo) GPU - Intel HD 3000 (650 Mhz can go upto 1.3 Ghz [not sure]) RAM - 2x 4 GB Corsair SO-DIMM 1333MHz Storage - SanDisk 128GB SSD Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.

    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?
  8. Howdy all. bluetooth issues here. my bluetooth is built into my t60 and it has a bcm2045 chipset. It is detected as a usb device under USB DEVICE TREE. done some researching and there are some fixes that make it perform better when its detected but nothing about this specific problem. bluetooth works fine before computer is put to sleep. Before sleeping bluetooth light on computer is lit. When put to sleep bluetooth light on the thinkpad is turned off. Upon waking from sleep the bluetooth icon has a line through it and my built in bluetooth bcm2045 is no longer detected in the bluetooth section of system profiler. BT light never comes back on. It also disappears from the USB device tree in system profiler. When i reboot bt shows up and works fine again. laptop is a t60 with custom dsdt from silencer. I assume its just some dsdt fix but im not sure where to start. any experts available? should just be a quick fix in dsdt. heres my dsdt. Love and light EDIT: found another USB dongle that plugs in and it survives the sleep cycles just fine. im stumped dsdt.rtf
  9. 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

  11. Hello fellow Hackintoshers I come to present my full guide on how to install Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan on any Lenovo Thinkpad L420. 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) First, screenshot proof of beautiful functionality 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 Install bootloader (Clover) to El Capitan USB 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 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.efiOpen 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 BroadcomBluetooth.kext CodecCommander.kext DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) GenericUSBXHCI.kext (only if you use an USB3.0 ExpressCard) IntelBacklight.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext toledaARPT.kext (if you use Atheros AR9285) USBInjectAll.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext ( tluck's version ) kextpack Lenovo L420 .zip After all the kexts are in the correct folder you should tweak your config.plist as follows, I recommend using Clover Configurator 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. https://app.box.com/s/j4fffsagyzlohxmnvq6t 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. Enjoy your new HackBook PS: DSDT and SSDT patches tutorial for this specific laptop are on their way
  12. Hi! There's no general lag now and the wifi works again But i have some other issues like flash video lagging (videos from disk play smooth) and sleep not working properly, the computer goes to and back from sleep only the LCD backlight doesn't turn on after sleep so i get a black screen (though it is turned on and showing barely visible graphics). I've done some lurking and found that if your GPU works OOB or you have a kext for it then you should settle for one method. Either GraphicsEnabler, or EFI string or Kext but not all of them, so i've disabled GraphicsEnabler. But the flash lag persists.. - - - (the stuff below this text is now solved thanks to fantomas1) - - - Just recently i changed the internal wifi on my T60 thinkpad to a broadcom bcm94311mcg which worked oob. Then, yesterday i updated to 10.6.8 and it broke the wifi (shown as turned off in settings) and every app including the os itself lags when ever i open a new finder window, a menu, or an app. Do you guys know what is causing this?
  13. Hey, I believe this is the right place to post this. I'm having a lot of troubles installing OSX on my Thinkpad T410. Every way of installing I try results in errors. Most of the time the error is "DSMOS has arrived". Sometimes it then changes to a whitescreen with line scrolling down. Images: I'm pretty sure it has something to do with my GPU. I managed to install Niresh once using the bootflag "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" but I wasn't able to boot after that and the flag never worked again. Not really sure what happened with that. I have tried using myHack, Uni\Beast and iAtkos, all of them result in the same thing. Any help with this would be great, thanks. Specs of laptop: CPU: i5-540M GPU: Either NVS 3100M or Intel HD 5700MHD. At first I thought it was the Intel but i'm starting to think otherwise. I have no real way of checking at the moment as there is no OS installed on the laptop
  14. So I finally got my ThinkPad to get to the Apple screen with GE=Yes. I switched from the default bootloader that [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] installs to the Chameleon Bootloader(using the latest in Chameleon Wizard). Now once it gets to the Apple logo, it just stops. I went into verbose mode to see why it stops and I am not so sure(picture attached below). Specs(ThinkPad T60 8745BU): Core 2 Duo T7200 3GB Ram Radeon x1400(Both kexts installed, Radeon x1400 and Radeon HD, and the HD kext does have the screens edid file.) Thanks!

    Lenovo Thinkpad T530

    Hey everyone, I'm new to forums and have been looking around for a while. I'm currently trying to get Maverick's 10.9 installed, but I seem to be having some trouble. I have tried booting with -x -v GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes and few others. If anyone has any advice please let me know!
  16. Hi I installed 10.10 on my x220, most things work greatly but the track point (which is very important to many users I believe) has some issues. Dragging and sometimes a quick single clicking often fail with VoodooPS2controller. see here: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller/issues/3 and here: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller/issues/29 I have: - tried old versions - tried change some properties including DragExitDelay, Movement threshold, ImmediateClick etc. But didn't work. I've also: - tried old ApplePS2Controller.kext and AppleACPInub.kext that solved the issue, but also we'll lost many new features of the voodoops2controller.kext (gesture, middle button functions etc) Any same situation / solutions?
  17. Hi guys! So complete NOOB here. But hoping to change that with this OSX installation. I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T420 4177 with Intel HD 3000 and an i5 processor. (2520m). I have 4 GB of factory installed RAM and a 320 GB hard drive. I was hoping you guys could help me out. I have a retail copy of the Snow Leopard DVD. So what I did was burned iB00t and then used it to boot the retail DVD. It took like two full minutes but then I saw this: I tried going into verbose mode but same thing. I changed the mode to ACHI in BIOS and everything. I don't know whats going on. I also tried all the other flags like GraphicsEnabler=No and PCIRootUID=1 but to no avail. Can anyone help me out? Thanks! I think it might be the problem but I actually have all my other partitions still existing during this installation. I have 3 boot options that show up when I put in the ib00t cd. Windows 7, Lenovo Backup, and System Drive. Should I do some formatting or something? Sorry I'm so clueless. Hope someone could help:) EDIT: Do you guys think this is the problem? I'm using this DVD http://i46.tinypic.com/oi547p.jpg
  18. hi guys I'm getting a T410s next week and wanted to know if it's possible to install Yosemite on it. I searched the whole day for any threads regarding this but wasn't able to find anything at all. there are a few posts about the T410s and Maverick but that's it. could the missing UEFI be a problem? do you know any good threads that apply for the T410s OSX installation? thanks and best wishes 12$

    Lenovo X220 using MaciASL

    I've begun attempting to patch my DSDT. One of the bigger issues is I get around ~19 errors after compilation. That is after I apply patches, x220 specific ones from a git repository of DSDT patches. One of the worst things is I've opened MaciASL and compiled the extracted (immaculate) DSDT and it gives me 17 errors! How can my DSDT have errors and yet be in use by the laptop? Most of the errors (with exception of one) involve lines like Name (_PLD, Buffer 0x10) //_PLD: Physical Location of Device and return "Invalid object type for reserved name (_PLD: found Buffer, Package required)" and my first error (which happens to be the sole different one) is Name (_IRC, 0x00) // _IRC: Inrush Current with error "Reserved name must be a control method (with zero arguments)" Again, this isn't patched DSDT, this is the one that is extracted from my machine. What's going on?
  20. Hello, I've been attempting for the past few days to install OS X Mountain Lion on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E530 with little success. So much so that I've finally decided I'm probably out of ideas and created this forum post requesting help. My Laptop Specs are: Intel Core i3-2328m (Sandy Bridge CPU at 2.2GHZ with support for SSE2 , SSE3 and SSSE3) 8GB RAM 500GB Hitachi Z7K500 HDD Lenovo 627226G Motherboard (Intel HM77 Chipset) Intel HD Graphics 3000 More Detailed Specs ---> https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-GXUa1I8xyDZU1SdklDSlhER2c So far , I've attempted to install iAtkos ML2 and ML3U via USB and so far both have worked up until the first sighting of the apple logo then the laptop restarted. In both cases , I was using a separate USB with chameleon bootloader on but in the instance where I tried to use the onboard bootloader on ML3U , I hit enter and the screen simply remained black. Any help would be much appreciated Thank you for your time.
