@goodguess -

1) TrackPoint on startup - 

yeah i don't know why the TrackPoint does not always work on cold-start. This has been happening on my T420 for as long as I can remember.  sleep/wake always works for me. on my T460, this exact same kext works 99% without issue. 

 

2) Tap to click works - if you set it the TrackPad Preferences 1st tab.

 

@Tophaholic

what happens if you eliminate IntelBacklight.kext?

you could try the config.1600x900.plist - edit it and set DualLink = 0. this one will inject a different EDID to see if that make a difference.

Issue resolved. I just wiped out the EFI folder on the HDD and replaced with the EFI folder in your build package. I think something messed up when I installed the latest clover package. All is good now. Thanks for all the support!

Just in case it is of interest for anyone. Updated my sister´s (my old) T420 with a Intel Core i7 2720QM 2.2GHz Quad. 

 

Temperatures at idle is 36-40º C

Never exceeded 91º C at intensive use

 

Used artic clean thermal remover, surface purifier and Silver 5

Hi trifero!

 

What was the previous CPU and what temps did you get with that one?

Thanks.

Thanks for your benchmarks!

I was thinking of a 2720QM the other day. May I ask how much cash you had to throw for it?

 

From the days of my MacII I learned that one would hardly notice a cpu upgrade in everyday work unless you would roughly gain the double benchmark wise.

A 2720QM is worth a thought it seems. (Hope this won't spoil second hand prices totally now.)

goodguess, my pleasure. It´s even more noticeable if you use virtual machines, as my sister does, as you can assign x2 “cpu” to them.

 

Took me not more than an hour.

yeah! double the performance is pretty good. especially for the price - they seem to be about $75 US on eBay. i have moved on to focus on my T460 right now.

Agreed, thats a reasonable price. I don´t see anything similar either except from Latvia or so.

And I kind of hesitate to buy from "foreign" countries.

That and my T420 would be mostly just "waiting faster" thinking of the tasks I throw on it. :)

 

Nice specs tluck, Skylake-U may be the way to go once some affordable leasing returns show up.

Can you still read the forum postings at 1920x1080, fourteen inch? (just kidding)

Hey tluck!

 

Does that mean we'll soon lose your support for the T420?

How's the T460 doing with macOS?

no such luck  :wink_anim: My 8yr old son is still using a T420 ... and I will keep my T420 around for a backup. 

my T460 has a decent full HD LCD.  but since I replaced my T420 orig LCD with a Glossy LG LCD, that screen is much better! seems brighter and whiter. and i prefer 1600 vs 1920 native res on 14inch screen!

HD300 software "upgrade"?

As many here are using the unlocked T420 BIOS, did anybody manage to assign 512MB RAM to the HD3000?

There is a setting for it in UEFI/BIOS, but I´m clueless how to tell the OS to grab 512MB instead of 384.

Could be a Clover tweaking as well.

Just curiosity on my side, whether 512MB would somehow better things compared to 384.

Many thanks for your guide!

 

After having converted two Lenovo X220's (without any troubles following the instructions at http://x220.mcdonnelltech.com),I now started converting my own T520, following this guide, since the hardware seems to be nearly identical. As with the X220, I got a BIOS with removed whitelist, and replaced the WiFi with a Dell 1510. Installation was easy thanks to the provided files, thanks again!

 

Only place where I had to get away from the tutorial was where it came to the screen resolution - I renamed config.1600x900.plist, but updated it inside to 1920x1080 (using the standard plist editor on my iMac, replaced resolution in two places).

 

Now the T520 is up and running, with just a "tiny" but highly visual problem: my desktop appears multiple times on my screen!

Clover is showing 1920x1080, the monitor system settings do show 1920x1080 as well, and switching resolutions will only switch resolution in their existing "frame".

Any idea what I can do about this would be quite welcome :)

@CCRDude - the difference between the config.1600 and config.1366 files are 2 things:

 

1) 1600 = injects a custom EDID to fix a problem with bios T420 EDID

2) 1600 = has DualLink =1

 

so restart start with the 1366 config and then if you need DualLink=1 edit and reboot.

Could anyone please tell me how do I go about removing the whitelist from bios on a T430? I like the laptop but can't seem to do anything with it yet because of the whitelist. Also if this guide for the T420 is identical in order to get the OS to install on the T430? Thanks in advance guys.

Thanks for the ultra fast answer, tluck!

 

I copied the 1366 config. but only got what I also had when booting from my X220 pre-configured USB stick. I get the left half of the desktop filling my whole screen, with some psychedelic colours:

(btw, the 1920x1080 resolution works fine from Windows boot stick and Ubuntu boot stick, so I'm sure the display specs are correct)

@CCRdude - so now that you removed the bogus EDID from the 1600 config, you probably need change DualLink=0 to DualLink=1

 

@Blaggah - T430 bios - prolly need find one at the T430 guide or from Bios-Mods.com? most of the steps are the same except not all kexts will work - for example Audio and GFX will be different.

Is there a T430 guide on here? I'd love to take a dab at it soon. The laptop is just there collecting dust.

No, but you can take reference on here. I still have the files for the T430, including the modded bios file. For bios mod, you have to use external programmer to mod it though

I also prefer the 1600 over the 1920 resolution LCD at 14" screen size. My company Dell machine is at 1920 and it's very tiring to look at.

I guess you forgot to reply to my question about how does Sierra perform on the T460. Was the intentional? :) I'm truly interested.

      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
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      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.
       
      EFI DIRECTORY
      http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=97606131925137056003
       
      HARDWARE
      CPU: Intel i5-8600K 3.6GHz hexacore (contains UHD 630 iGPU)
      CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim (no paste needed, and fan facing front)
      Mobo: GIGABYTE z370 AORUS Gaming 5 (WIFI)
      RAM: 1x 8GB CORSAIR Vengeance LPX C16 2666MHz (in first slot)
      GFX Card: Sapphire RX 580 NITRO+ SE
      SATA: used ports 0, 1, 3, 5 (HDD problems when connected to port 4)
      HDD: generic
      DVD Drive: generic
      PSU: EVGA 500W Semi Modular (but you should get 650W!)
      Case: CoolerMaster CM590 III
      Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
       
      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 at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      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.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      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.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.

      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week.
      In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you.
      I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.9.
      - Download the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0505.
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.2.
       
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the config.plist inside your destination disk EFI parittion with config.plist inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.
       
      Last step
       
      Copy all Kexts from flash drive to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.3
       
      - Updated with success;
      - Everything works perfectly after reboot;
       

       
       

       
      And last but not least
