@niceguy82: Strange that you DP won´t play, I had a video (.TS) playing on my TV via a DP2HDMI cable without issues.

The Ricoh card reader is not working for me either, but I could pinch a compatible Transcend from one of my T60´s. :)

 

@all: Did anybody dare to venture the 10.11.5 upgrade Apple is offering for a few days now?

I would give it a go, but I don´t have a spare drive for a backup right now.

@goodguess - if the laptop has an nvidia/optimus card the external ports may be connected to the that unused gfx card vs intel HD3000 

and yes 10.11.5 is straightforward upgrade. just download the combo update from the app store.

I see, did not look into the T420s specs, my bad.

 

I´ll give 10.11.5 a go then, as your T420 seems to run it already.

Thanks for confirming!

 

EDIT: Done. Everything looks fine so far!

@niceguy82 - well the shutdown/reboot thing could be a USB3 issue? can you disable usb3 and test? i recall this chipset is renaisas/NEC ? i.e. not intel or fresno logic. right?

yes in Windows it is shown as renaisas USB 3 eXteneble Hostcontroller.

You mean disable it in BIOS right?

 

Edit:

disabled in bios and now it shutsdown.

 

Is there a chance to fix that USB Driver Problem?

 

Ps The Display Port dose also not ork in Windows 10 only when I enable the NVS Card in BIOS.

So i think it works only with the NVIDIA chip ?

He Guys!

 

I just noticed that creating/modifying a Numbers document in iCloud Drive on my T420 does not shown on my iPhone. It will only get shown when I create a document on my iPhone and that somehow triggers the sync. This looks to be a one way communication issue to me. I see similar behavior with iMessage. I receive all messages on my T420 but only occasionally can send them. Most of the time I just get "message not delivered" error.

 

How should I start solving this problem? :)

Thanks.

Does anyone here able to install 10.11.x with W520. I tried multiple times, i can't even past the installation setup. Using tluck instructions with T420.


 


Thanks!

I did successfully though, have to use Mac Pro 3,1 and InjectNvidia=True

Very good guide. Thank you again, managed to install 10.11.5 on my t420, now I have a dual boot with 10.9, just to move things over.

 

Two questions: in 10.11 the fan doesn't seem to throttle up or down, running at about 3530 RPM, even at Idle @48 ˚C, the CPU is stepping correctly.

I'm getting 10% (measured) performance loss in 10.11.5.

 

Any thoughts?

FAN - seems consistent with lots of other folks - with just the LCD, my box will run at 2000 RPM - but with dual display or mild activity jumps it to 3500-3600RPM. there is some ways to step the fan to lower speeds if search through the thread.

 

Perf - interesting. it has been about 2 years since i looked at this. but i ran geekbench3 and with the Clover generated SSDT compared to one created by pikes SSDT generation tool.

 

well the single CPU results for the Clover generated SSDT ran 5% slower with the dual core speed about the same. 

 

the numbers were 2325/5052 for Clover generate SSDT vs 2441/5059 for custom SSDT.aml (averaged for 6 runs each) - the geekbench3 is calibrated to be 2500 for the i5-2520m proc - which is what i have. so not bad. just a few percent off theory.

 

so you could try creating a custom SSDT with the script provided. El Capitan runs a little bit faster than Yosemite for me.

I updated the zip with minor changes

 

26-May-2016 Update

  • Updated to Clover r3546

  • Updated DisplayOverride files to add full HD (1920x1080) option for 1600x900 screens.
  • Updated theme plist file (removes F1:help text from lower left corner)

here are the changed files:

@ tluck

Thank you for the fast reply.

Meanwhile I updated the Clover version and Geekbench3 and run again the performance tests. Finally I got results consistent with your findings

(proc being i5-2520m, 16GB Ram, 10.9 on a Samsung SSD, 10.11 on a Crucial MSata SSD, both internal):

Geekbench 3.4.1, Clover 3420, average score of 5 runs, 64 Bit test:

10.9.5,   Clover SSDT: 2419 (Single Proc) 5079 (Multi proc)

10.11.5, Clover SSDT: 2362 (Single Proc) 5448 (Multi proc)

10.11.5,  Pikes  SSDT: 2377 (Single Proc) 5418 (Multi proc)

 

So yes, you're right, El Capitan 10.11.5 delivers better Multi proc and slight worse single proc performance, differences between Clover SSDT and Pikes tool generated SSDT remaining

negligible.

 

Startup times (From Clover Boot menu to Login screen):

10.9.5,  14 Seconds

10.11.5, 15 Seconds

 

Good work.

 

For FAN setting I will investigate further, I'm getting 3530 RPM also when using just internal LCD

(maybe a cleaning of the fan/heatsink assembly could help).

Hi @downlord

The fan speed control, you can use the thread.

Awesome work! I tried it on Lenovo ThinkPad X220.

How could I remove some kexts from the created bootable USB Flash drive, so when the USB drive boots - they shouldn't load.
 

I replaced the wi-fi card with this one:
https://wikidevi.com/wiki/AzureWave_AW-CE123H

I have to remove IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleAirPortBrcm43224.kext otherwise a "kernel panic" happens.
I've done it with the installed El Capitan, so the wi-fi card works great, but I cannot find the place of kexts on the install bootable media.
 

Thanks!

 Thank you for pointing me at that, it actually works, if you're not afraid of dsdt patching.

And I can confirm that RehabMans modded acpipoller.kext does the trick, without hwmonitor.

 

@mikaelr Great finding, you're right, the dsdt.dsl in the zip doesn't compile well.

 

System runs fast, cool and silent now.

Yes, I know, it can work. Thank @mikaelr.

I had used the DSDT path to change for my fan-temp profile.

And add the Blue ThinkVantage change to user fan profile or bios default or highest speed.

@rainar

well I see 2 volumes. The recovery volume and what is the other one -- looks like an OS partition?
Is your os volume called OSX as in your config.plist?

Your bios is old. Maybe Update to 1.46 ?

Hello tluck,

Thank you  for you reply!

The other one is "boot recovery from recovery HD".

 

Now I know what's wrong with my T420. I forgot to turn off the auto-update in the APP store. When the auto-update startup, I didn't check the update list. So I pressed Ok and the update started. And the OSX was updated to be 10.11.5. And I cannot find the OSX partition again after reboot.

But I don't know how to fix this issue. Can it be fixed by updating the Clover software?

 

Thanks again for helping.

Hi rainar,

 

have you accidentally switched on file vault for your system partition?

clover does not support file fault unfortunately.

@rainer - i wonder if there is a logical volume on your HD. if you can boot up the recovery HD and then convert the logical partition to physical that might work. 


Updating the os from the app store works ok - something else went wrong at that time.

Hi:

 

I am using a T420 with a 1600x900 panel, and I just finished the instructions for installing and patching 10.11.  Initially, both the panel brightness control (using ScrLk/Pause and Fn+Home/End) worked.  However, after installing Clover and running the custom kext file, the screen now flickers when I turn the brightness settings down from max, and Fn+Home/End no longer work to control the brightness.  I noticed that the pointing stick no longer moves the mouse (and the associated buttons do not work).  These functions all seemed to work off a fresh install -- can anyone help me to figure out how to restore them?  Does it perhaps have something to do with IntelBacklight.kext?

@mangyvr -

 

well i wonder if the kexts are installed properly? i have seen graphics flickering if the HD 3000 is not fully running? do you have all these kext? you could try reinstalling the kexts with _kext_install script to make sure the caches are built properly. 

 

do you have the ESP/EFI folders on the HD set up just like from the USB installer? the DSDT sets FN Home/End key so you need that in place.

Thanks to vusun23 and truck, I managed to installed Mac OS X 10.11.5 with my Lenovo W520. Everything works including, messenger and FaceTime.

 

Question have you manage to get the USB3 and SD card reader to work?

 

Thanks,

      Ciao ragazzi! Grazie a questo forum con gente fantastica, sono riuscito a installare OS X e in seguito Win 10 su Clover SULLO STESSO HARD DISK
      Ho un problema, di solito utilizzo Kali Linux, la famosa versione di linux in usb in live
      Ora avrei la necessita di dedicargli 15gb di partizione del mio Hard Disk PER INSTALLARLA, e l'ho fatto effettivamente creando una partizione VUOTA tramite utility disco di Sierra.
      Il problema sorge quando io vado a riavviare il pc e quindi ritrovandomi nella schermata di clover, e vedo sempre il solito OSX e il recovery Osx e al posto di Windows 10, mi trovo la partizione di 15gb che avevo creato per windows(con l'icona di windows)
      Siccome ho paura di perdere i dati importanti che avevo su windows, non ho continuato installando Kali, ma mi sono fermato e ho eliminato la partizione sempre da utility di Sierra e come per magia, riavvio e Win10 è di nuovo lì dove dovrebbe stare
      Appena creo la partizione vuota, clover me la sostituisce
      Che devo fare raga?
      Io voglio OSX,Win10 (Che già ho) e Kali(Solo 15gb) sullo stesso hard disk
      Senza perdere dati di Win o Mac
      Gengik ho visto in precedenti discussioni tue, di andare in GUI da clover config . e togliere Windows da quelli nascosti e l'ho fatto, ma il risultato non cambia.
      Grazie per la lettura

      Hi All
       
      I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation:
      - MSI B350 PC Mate
      - Ryzen 5 - 2600
      - Radeon Pro 580 GPU
      - 4 x 8GB DDR4
      (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) 
       
      Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes...
      ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2"
      Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX.
       
      So can someone help...

      I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen.
      In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1
      In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67
      In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well)
       
      But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help...
      Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...

      I get a lot of questions about HOW TO BACKUP A HACKINTOSH. So I decided to create Complete Guide with 5 methods described in detail, how to easily make bootable clones of Hackintosh system disks, or backup your data. Full step by step tutorial is here:
