Need Help To Run Mac OS X Lion on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E320

Recommended Posts

Hi All Gurus,

 

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E320 and want to run Mac OS X Lion on it. There is a lot of problem came out after installation.

 

ThinkPad Edge E320 Hardware Config:

  • Intel Core i3-2350M CPU
  • Intel HM65 Express Chipset
  • ThinkPad UltraNav Poiniting Device
  • ThinkPad Display 1366 x 768
  • Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)
  • Intel WiFi 1000 BGN
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000
  • Conexant 20671 SmartAudio HD
  • Intel Display Audio

Procedure:

 

Boot from USB drive

It works well with the installer.

1. All 3 USB ports work

2. Intel HD Graphics 3000 works in full resolution

3. Build-in Keyboard and Trackpad, both Left and Right Trackpad buttons work

 

Lion (10.7.0) was installed smoothly.

 

After Lion Installation:

 

Boot from USB drive, select internal hard drive in the menu.

  1. Only left hand side front USB port work, others don't.
     
  2. Intel HD Graphics 3000 works in full resolution (1366x768)
     
  3. Build-in Keyboard and Trackpad, both Left and Right Trackpad buttons work
     
  4. Battery Status, Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera, SD Card Slot, External monitor VGA port and eSATA/USB combo port all don't work
     
  5. Can't wake up from sleep

Install ######## with the following options:

  • ######## Install
  • System Utilities > Reapir Permission
  • Driver & Bootloaders > Kexts & Enablers > Miscellaneous > PS/2 Keyboard/Mice and Trackpads
  • Customization > System Definitions > MacBook Pro 8,1

Reboot

 

Can't boot from GUID Partition but can boot from Master Boot Record Partition

 

Boot from Master Boot Record Partition

  1. Only left hand side front USB port work, others don't.
     
  2. Intel HD Graphics 3000 works in full resolution (1366x768)
     
  3. Build-in Keyboard and Trackpad work, but all Trackpad buttons don't work
     
  4. External Keyboard and Mouse which connect the left hand side front USB port work
     
  5. Battery Status, Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera, SD Card Slot, External monitor VGA port and eSATA/USB combo port all don't work
     
  6. Can't wake up from sleep

Install Chimera 1.8.0 did't help, still like previous.

  1. Only left hand side front USB port work, others don't.
     
  2. Intel HD Graphics 3000 works in full resolution (1366x768)
     
  3. Build-in Keyboard and Trackpad work, but all Trackpad buttons don't work
     
  4. External Keyboard and Mouse which connect the left hand side front USB port work
     
  5. Battery Status, Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera, SD Card Slot, External monitor VGA port and eSATA/USB combo port all don't work
     
  6. Can't wake up from sleep

I'm a designer but not a programmer, but I would spend time to try anything you suggest. Wish you gurus would share experiences to make it completely work. Thanks.

 

Best

Isaac
