hi all friends, sorry my bad english i'm italian. I decided to write this guide because have spent more time to have fully working lion on laptop in signature and want help other users with same model.


First of all the exact model: Lenovo ideapad z560 M37BMIX


prepare usb stick with kakewalk to have bootable lion usb disk


install on usb disk prepared the latest version of chameleon via chameleon wizard here


copy in extra of usb disk the content of my attachement 1 (thanks to maldon for dsdt he made it for me)


proceed with installation choosing usb disk at boot of notebook pressing f12


after installation boot with usb disk another time but pressing f5 and choosing not kakewalk but the disk where you installed lion


when in os, download kext wizard here


install with chameleon wizard latest version of chameleon on your lion disk


copy the content of 1 extra in your lion disk


install with kext wizard the kexts i provided in S/L/E repair permission and rebuild cache




after reboot install rtgmac kest provided


if all is good, you have a working notebook with hibernate, sleep, airdrop ecc. fully functional



thanks to maldon for dsdt and to verleihnix for modded voodooHDA
