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

  • Lots of extra menus available for additional configuration

  • 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!

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu

      I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
      "could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating" 
      And some other warnings afterwards.
      Specs:
      CPU: Intel Skylake 6700HQ 2.6GHz
      RAM: 16GB DDR4
      2TB HDD + 128GB SSD
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 + Nvidia GTX960m
      I'm installing using a 16GB USB3 flash drive on one of HDD volumes (UEFI Mode)
       
      I uploaded the verbose log and clover config.plist
      config-new.plist
