Hi,with Google's help, I found the necessary kexts and my hackintosh works with the native 1600x900 with full QE/CI.Now I have another problem I have to solve.I have installed half size mini pci-e WIFI card Atheros AR9280 AR5BHB92,which works by default with previous versions of Mac OS X.Now the card is not recognized by default and I do not see it in a system report. How can I get it back to work?

well for your wifi card (same as mine) you will need to copy the /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros40.kext from High Sierra to Mojave. you can put in /S/L/E or put in your ESP.

 

and yeah i am using the "Mojave" config.plist for both High Sierra and Mojave (which gives me night shift for the display).

Maybe you can check backlightinjector and delete it, or trying to make a own one by following the guide

Mojave beta4 works so far using the July 20 bundle from tluck and the Sierra HD3000 kexts.

I'm expecting to still have the usual HD3000 related freezes though. (What if I just simply replace my machine with a T430 that has HD4000? :))

great.

do you have 1600x900 or 1366x768 display?

run this please and post info:

ioreg -n AppleBacklightDisplay | grep Display

 

it would be nice to find other LCDs that work without changing the EDID to the one in the 1600x900 config.plist file

Hei. I can't boot T420 after last reboot.

Is regular T420 (1366x768 display) with WiFi AR5BHB92

Bios MOD

Quote

Features

  • Based on v1.46
  • WLAN whitelist removed - can use any wireless card
  • 1600MHz & 1866MHz RAM support
  • 16GB RAM Support, stable with an eGPU
  • Lots of extra menus available for additional configuration
  • Updated splash logo included
  • Can downgrade from 1.48 or 1.49 by using winflash's /sv /sd options

 

I also wish to fix power off, because after power off it is just reboot, and multi fingers gestures just does not work (I mean switching between desktops etc...) same with F1 to F12 buttons, for example on F4 does not work like in mac Launchpad

I install step by step https://josephsiu.com/convert-windows-10-thinkpad-t420-into-dual-boot-hackintosh-running-macos-high-sierra/

did you get it to boot?

You can play with VoodooPS2Controller items to map keys and so on if you want to match something you like on a Mac.

not all finger gestures will work as the TrackPad is not an Apple Magic Pad

not sure about the reboot on power off? do you use a dock or have USB things plugged in? 

 

@Tetonne

 

Yes - I am using the same config (mojave) for both High Sierra and Mojave - i changed 9,1 to 11,1

bummer. well maybe you can repair the filesystem in recovery mode. what do you see in recover mode? using the disk utility to repair the disk. is this a APFS or HFS+ ? if APFS do you have all the drivers there for the latest zip?

I also have tried these methods to make media bootable for my Lenovo ThinkPad. Now I am trying to move on with UEFI feature. This could be possible through Lenovo Customer Support help. In my favor, they provide the best service. Thanks for it.

 

well yes. the point of this thread is use Clover to boot macOS via UEFI - clover can also let you boot Windows via UEFI. They coexist nicely. I dual boot windows and macOS from one disk.

@tluck is there any solution to the ui glitch in mojave's light mode. I wonder it is just a regular bug because recently i found some of the mojave supported mac also have these phenomenon in ramdom. while the solution comes out i can update my x220 to mojave, in case i really love light mode

Well I update HS to Mojave, everything seems working fine except some problem with ssdt. Is it caused by SMBIOS that is not macbookpro8,1(i use the new config in your recent release which is macbookpro11,1)

@SuperReaper

 

what is your BIOS v? and what is in your ACPI/patched folder - seems like a ACPI/DSDT problem? 

what happens if you replace your entire CLOVER folder with the one in the zip?

hmm. so if you use the standard DSDT.aml it works ok?

do any of the provided DSDT*.aml files work? I am at a loss to understand what is going on? 

 

this could an issue with the Clover patching -- ie DSDT/ACPI fixes... maybe remove some of the "fixes" - like DeleteUnused etc -  most fixes are already there in the DSDT?

If I use clover v2.4 r4513 or lower, all your DSDT ok, but when I use later version of clover, I got that error even I change all possible dsdt u provide!

      Bonjour,
       
      Je rencontre un souci depuis la dernière maj supplémentaire catalina 10.15.4, même chose pour la 10.15.5 aujourd'hui : après le début de l'update, lorsque le pc redémarre, je ne vois pas le volume d'installation dans les volumes de l'écran de boot clover (v5118). j'ai juste Preboot dans les volumes cachés au démarrage, et j'ai essayé de les afficher, le préboot de l'install apparait bien mais le boot n'aboutit jamais par ce biais. du coup, je suis bloqué en 10.15.4. Auriez-vous une idée du problème ?

      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:
                                    
                       -/+:.          ningnan@ningnandeMacBook-Air
                      :++++.          OS: 64bit Mac OS X 10.15.5 19F96
                     /+++/.           Kernel: x86_64 Darwin 19.5.0
             .:-::- .+/:-``.::-       Uptime: 19m
          .:/++++++/::::/++++++/:`    Packages: 1
        .:///////////////////////:`   Shell: zsh 5.7.1
        ////////////////////////`     Resolution: 3840x2160
       -+++++++++++++++++++++++`      DE: Aqua
       /++++++++++++++++++++++/       WM: Quartz Compositor
       /sssssssssssssssssssssss.      WM Theme: Blue (Dark)
       :ssssssssssssssssssssssss-     Disk: 11G / 108G (12%)
        osssssssssssssssssssssssso/`  CPU: Intel Core i7-5500U @ 2.40GHz
        `syyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy+`  GPU: Intel Iris Graphics 6100
         `ossssssssssssssssssssss/    RAM: 4376MiB / 8192MiB
           :ooooooooooooooooooo+.    
            `:+oo+/:-..-:/+o+/-     
       
       
      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro. EFI_HZ550.zip
