Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

4,529 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Clover EFI Bootloader I was able to achieve almost perfect HacBook Pro from my Lenovo T420

This guide is work in progress and I’ll try to update it as often as I can outdated! For more updated guide head to tluck's post #481 (thanks tluck for taking over)

 

Why UEFI Only?
Faster boot time, better hardware detection, native Mac OS X Installation process and Auto create Recovery HD, working iCloud and iMessage to name a few. But in general you will achieve almost perfect Macbook Pro clone that will most likely survive all future System updates.

Note: I’ll be focusing on Mountain Lion but I guess Lion would work equally good.

Lets start by preparing Mac OS X install media.
You will need:
- Working Mac OS X 10.6 or later (Hackintosh, Virtual machine or real Mac)
- 8GB+ USB pen-drive
- Legal copy of Mountain Lion install app
- and an app called Lion Disk Maker
- my custom Clover Package: Clover_v2_r1625k0.pkg.zip

Prepare Mountain Lion install media using Lion DiskMaker.

Making install media bootable on your ThinkPad
Run my custom Clover Package and change the install destination to the Mountain Lion install media you’ve just created using Lion DiskMaker. Generaly you don't have to worry about anything else it is all customized to work best on all ThinkPads.

Note (optional): At this point you can use another FAT32 formatted pen-drive to install Clover on to it. This pen-drive needs to be capable of storing at least 25MB+ of data.

System installation
Insert prepared OS X Mountain Lion Install Disk - 10.8 in your ThinkPad and set to boot in UEFI Only mode. And wait for the boot loader. You should be presented with screen like this:

Now start the installation process just like you would on a normal Mac. Partition your drive with GUID table and install.

Adding Extra drivers using myHack
You now should be running vanilla Mac OS X 10.8. Before you start upgrading and instaling software now is a good time to add missing drivers and install them in a clean and proper manner using myHack.
1. Download Extra Folder: Extra.zip
2. Download myHack and place it in your Application folder
3. Run myHack and choose myFix. When asked about Extra folder choose "Use My Own" and point to downloaded Extra folder from step 1. Reboot and check if everything is working fine. By everything, beside AppleACPIPlatform.kext ver 1.3.5, I mean Sound and Battery meter cause these are the only kexts that are in Extra/Extentions

Making your custom configuration using OEM folder
... under construction...

Booting Clover EFI Bootloader from system drive
It's time to get rid of the osx pen-drive you've been booting all the time and install my custom Clover to your main disk and boot directly from your hard drive EFI partition. This step is identical to the "Making install media bootable on your ThinkPad" but this time you will be using your main drive. Just make sure your disk drive is selected when installing.

Note: Now You can customize your installation. You have the choice to install Clover Preference Panel and Optional RC scripts.

Remove pen-drive and reboot. If all went well you should be booting from your hard drives EFI partition now. Good luck!

Update 2013-01-20: Flashed latest UEFI Bios version 1.43 + whitelist and started fresh DSDT patching

Update 2013-01-30: Uploaded new LenovoEFI_Pack_Beta2.zip (from now on I'll be attaching latest version to this thread). I've started using the EFI/OEM/4180A32 folder specific for my T420 model and added minimal config in the root that should work for everyone else (testers needed). My latest DSDT.aml in EFI/OEM/4180A32/ACPI/patched and updated ThinkPad theme is included.

Update 2013-05-15: Updated the post to reflect some changes and progress made in this topic. Using custom Clover r1625 that has all the stuff Lenovo UEFI user needs. This one is enabled to install to ESP by default with ThinkPad Theme and RC scripts and example EFI/CLOVER/OEM/4180A32 folder.

Yes and Yes - but you need to patch USB for sleep to work.

dsdt.aml included in clover EFI/ACPI/patched/dsdt.aml does not have this patch. I'll add info about DSDT patching later.

Yes this guide will work but remember that I use kexts (drivers) specific for Lenovo ThinkPad's and as I mentioned before my DSDT.aml that will KP on your machine.

So in your case delete:

EFI/ACPI/patched/dsdt.aml

and try it out.

I can't get my hardware monitor to work. Try to run it and I got KP.....

 

Did you use some special kext for the hardware monitor? The one I am using is from iAtkos ML2

If by hardware monitor you mean HWMonitor.app than you just need the latest FakeSMC.kext and in our case CPUSensors.kext and ACPISensors.kext. You can find them in my "EFI/kexts/10.8" and the minimal readout should look more or less like this:

I'm guessing that KP is due to different version of FakeSMC being loaded from iAtkos .

Today I've made a display override for my HD+ Panel (1600x900) based on MacbookPro9,1(DisplayVendorID-610/DisplayProductID-9cc7) and named it Lenovo LCD.

The display profile default is warmer using this file and I have added some extra resolution choices in scaled mode.

Today I had the chance to test out the Display Port to Hdmi cable that I've ordered for 7$ from China (free shipping) and I'm happy to report that all is working great.

Dp2Hdmi.png

All testing done on my Samsung 40" FullHD LED TV. Full resolution support. Stable graphics with no artifacts that I keep on hearing here and there. Even done some OpenGL testing to see how much FPS can I get in case of gaming on the big screen. Mirroring works. The HDMI sound output works both in direct mode (sound in TV) and pass through to my Onkyo receiver.

Here are some screenshots:

Hey, it's maybe a little bit off-t, but I have a t420 wich I want to run on OSX. I've been in the hackintosh business for a few years, but since the new Sandy Bridge and further I admit I lost track of the scene a bit.

 

I have tried to install with the "OSX 10.8 bootable usb method", the one you need the raw file and a windows pc for,

I've tried the ##### method, also myHack etc etc.

 

With the bootable usb method I can boot in installation, but osinstall.mpkg failes to load, so there's no custom install option. When I install and reboot, I get stuck after the IOBluetooth succes message, which is the last one before loading graphics. This "freeze" happens while loading ##### etc too. I've tried using all different flags etc but no succes.

 

How did you manage to get your graphics working? Do you have two GPU's or just the Intel graphics?

 

My setup is:

 

T420

i5 2520m vPro

4gb ram

HD3000 graphics

1600x900 screen

 

and the standard stuff as bluetooth 3.0, wan etc.

 

Hope you have some tips for me ;)

Try starting from step "Clover installation" - use another FAT32 formatted pen-drive and copy the EFI folder to it and try installing again in UEFI only mode. I won't support other methods.

Also instead of hardware specs I rather you tell my your ThinkPad serial number. Good luck

My serial number is 4236Z9U.

Thanks for the fast reply, and also my compliments for the work you're doing!

 

 

 

NB: Tried to copy your files from EFI, didn't work OOB. What worked for me is to download latest Clover package installer (v2_rL971), install it to USB and then copy (and replace where needed) your files from "EFI" folder to the EFI folder on the USB. Now I can boot Clover, it's a start haha.

 

 

UPDATE: I have followed your guide, and now I can actually boot into the installer. Only issue is, my display does not work. I noticed that I got a black screen after booting (instead of hanging at bluetooth succes it goes on running to graphics), but when I clicked something my usb did go do something. So I figured my graphics were working now, only my internal LCD did not. I switched to external VGA as default boot screen in my UEFI bios, and that, in fact, works. I guess it tries to go 1600x900x32 on my 1280x1024 screen, but it's working.

 

Do you know what I have to change to make my LCD working, is it something in Clover or in my kexts?

You have almost identical hardware specs to mine so I advice you to rename the 4180A32 folder inside EFI/OEM/ to 4236Z9U and report back.

 

BTW: Are you sure you have the correct UEFI booting settings in your ThinkPad Setup? (Startup > UEFI/Legacy Boot Priority [uEFI First])

ThinkPad Setup

 

I still can't make up my mind regarding the best ThinkPad Setup configuration but it seem that some setting are essential for booting Mac OS X:

 

Essential:

Config > Serial ATA (SATA) > SATA Controller Mode Option [AHCI]

Security > Memory Protection > Execution Prevention [Enabled]

Security > Intel ® VT-d Feature [Disabled]

 

My other settings:

Security > Security Chip > Security Chip [Disabled]

Startup > UEFI/Legacy Boot [Both]

Startup > UEFI/Legacy Boot Priority [UEFI First]

Yeah I have the system up and running now, from my internal screen with right resolution. Sound and ethernet work as well now.

Only issue, I get a KP after a few minutes.

 

panic(cpu 2 caller 0xffffff7f807ff1df): No HPETs available...CPU(s) configured incorrectly
Debugger called: <panic>
Backtrace (CPU2), Frame : Return Adress
and after that a lot of computer language, which probably is the adress of where it got stuck or something.

 

I'm going to try changing stuff in bios first, turning off hypertheading etc, maybe it works maybe not, I'll post updates.

I'm still running original UEFI/BIOS by the way, because I wasn't planning yet on changing my wireless card.

 

I think some things in your DSDT aren't the same after all, but the namechanging thing did work for the rest. Only problem now is that I do not have any knowledge of modifying DSDT's...

I think there is my experimental DSDT.aml in the patched folder, try replacing it with the one I'm using right now.

 

Working now without KP, only sound is gone. What did you modify on it? Rest works great without KP's now!

Here's a screenshot uploaded from my T420.

Used your latest dsdt from post #21 (for anyone having same issues ;) ) working great now!

 

@Kogen Mantis, you're doing a great job here, thanks very much for the work you have done and what you're doing! Even sleep is working etc etc!

After a day i use I notice that sometimes when I close the lid, it doesn't go to sleep but freezes with a black screen and a flashing sleep indicator. Do you have that as well or would that be specific to my model Thinkpad and it's DSDT now?

I'm doing so many test with different types of setup and configurations that I've didn't noticed that... I mean sleep doesn't work as expected sometimes but I was always blaming something else than the DSDT. I guess I should look closer into it.

What UEFI Bios version you are at now? And can you write down the steps to reproduce the sleep problem.

Also I have hibernatemode disabled:

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage

      Latest Release on GitHub Updated to Clover r4849 Updated Kexts Shift to use WhatEvergreen.kext 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.

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.
      Immagine 
      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.

      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP

      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched

      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
      le info le trovate a questo post

      Ho comprato da poco un Acer Aspire 5750G e girando su internet ho trovato la cartella efi che garantiva quasi tutto funzionante perfino il wifi (https://github.com/zipippino/HighSierraAspire5750G).
      Allora felicissimo installo macOS e a parte incappare in errori stupidi, riesco a fare tutto, ma quando sono riuscito ad installare clover Legacy e sostituendo la roba con la 'mia' efi clover si avvia ma macOS no, semplicemente non carica (si nota anche pk la spia dell'hdd che dice se è in attivitá è spenta.
      Qualcuno può aiutarmi?

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not get iMessage to work properly. It worked precisely once, on my first installation attempt. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - if you can get NVRAM/PRAM working properly on this hardware, please do edit the config as you see fit.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.
