You might need the Wi-Fi driver too, depending on your card and whether you use it. Personally, I would move to High Sierra rather than Mojave

 

If I recall correctly its a DW1520.

The only reason I'm considering trying out Mojave is because of Dark Mode.

@davidian - I successfully tested the HD3000 kexts from Sierra and High Sierra with Mojave, but i recall a failure with the el cap gfx kexts. 

High Sierra is the last properly supported version for aHD 3000 system like the T420

 

As bedfellow suggested, move to that (first) to get the kexts you will need to move forward.

 

if you have enough free space, perhaps create a 20 or 30 GB partition to test out mojave. For example, I dual boot using the same ESP/Clover config for High Sierra and Mojave.

Note: be prepared for APFS - all my disks are formatted with APFS now -  whether SSD or regular SATA now. 

 

and i use jackluke's script to switch from light to dark mode at night!

You'll need to copy the High Sierra Wi-Fi driver for that. Details are in tluck's install post.

@tluck, @bedfellow, thanks for the info.

@tluck, I read about the new apfs, is there any downside to it or it's just another file system? I'm asking because you mentioned it, and I don't know if it was  because I should watch out for something, or it was just a casual info..

 

I will move first to High Sierra, and then see from there.

I remember talk about the glitches since tluck was trying out the Sierra Beta, so I never felt motivated to move from El Cap.

If I manage to install HS / Mojave, maybe I won't have a problem with glitches or other gfx issues, because I use eGPU while docked.

For me, some of the more recent plist have helped with the graphics glitches, but they never truly went away until I upgraded the RAM to 16gb.

 

The light theme is Mojave does not work properly on the T420, I suspect due to the now unsupported graphics chip. I also found Mojave to be more prone to lockups than High Sierra.

So I created the usb installer, made an empty 50Gb macOS partition, but after booting from the usb stick, I cannot select that partition (or any). I'm getting "You may not install on this volume because the computer is missing a firmware partition".

Did I miss something, anyone got this before me?

I downloaded the full installer app (~5Gb) with macOS High Sierra patcher, since from the app store I was getting the 28Mb installer.

Sounds to me that you have not created a GUID (GPT) partition.

On the HDD? It's the same HDD where I have El Capitan installed, just created a separate partition and formatted it to Mac Os Extended (Journaled), so that must be GPT.

Disk Util says so..

Would it make any sense to try with a complete blank HDD?

So to answer my own question:

the problem was that the partition wasn't APFS.

In the guide it says macOS Extended (Journaled) or APFS.

For High Sierra macOS Extended is not accepted, only APFS (at least in my case with my installer is not).

I will later check if it's the same with Mojave.

I don't know if this is trivial info or not, I'm just glad I found out what was the issue.

If anyone thinks it's worth it, then maybe mention it in the guide, altough searching for the text that I posted in the thread give me no hits, so maybe it's just me.

I'm glad you have resolve the issue. When I dual booted HS and Mojave I had them on separate drives so didn't have this issue. If the information is useful to others then it's certainly not trivial.

You are the greatest tluck, thanks a bunch for your latest EFI package!

I was able to install Mojave on a spare old USB2 drive, AFS formatted.

Needed some re-boots, but all an all a hassle free installation.

 

One thing puzzling me, from the About this Mac, I'm getting 5 MB VRAM, is that what it should be?

I seem to recall that some kext from Sierra would better things a bit.

If that's still an option, which one should be installed?

 

Sorry for not recalling all proceedings in this thread.

Again, awesome work. Thanks for keeping our oldies updated!

Mojave removed support of HD 3000 Graphics , you need to copy the hd3000 kexts to /S/L/E , and than rebuild caches

Thanks, thats right.

Found the needful things three pages before.

Still a working package hosted here won´t harm much. ;)

 

Another problem did arise unfortunately.

I lost PS2 Trackpad and keyboard after booting from power off.

USB mouse and keyboard do work of course, but thats not comfortable with a laptop.

Just realized that sound is gone too. :(

Any thoughts how to get back the functionality from just after installation?

Other than that, the OS looks quite snappy, even from my old USB2 Fujitsu 120 HDD.

T420 2420M 8Go 1600*900 bought :) must received it wednesday  

my previous was 2440M 4Go 1366*768

i'm back soon :-)

 

Got both cpu flavours 1600*900 (Intel only) and honestly do not see a difference, performance wise.

RAM will matter and possibly an i7, but I don´t think upgrading the cpu is worth the money, SSD and RAM are the ones and possibly a expansion bay for backup etc.

hmm seems like some of the kexts are not loaded? I will try to find time re-test a complete installation.

anyway seems like a good idea to include the HD 3000 GFX/Atheros kexts in the repo as there seems to be a lot Mojave interest.

Thanks tluck.

As I was uncertain how to get back the trackpad function, installed from scratch again on the USB2 volume.

Until right now trackpad, trackpoint and keyboard do work. Same for sound, volume keys and camera.

Why the kexts were no loaded last time remains the question.

I´ll try some more, than replacing HS with Mojave will be on schedule.

 

I´m getting system crashes in an early stage, three out of four times.

I´ll try with my other T420, as there may be a ACPI issue as seen before.

The crash report (first lines) is attached.

 

For the lost trackpad and sound, could HWSensors be the culprit?

The devices did work on my second trial until installation.

Afterwards Trackpad and sound are missing and HWSensors are not loaded either - strange.

Edit: The other T420 has the same isuue booting up - 3 out of 4 failures.

Here is the second crash report for the people knowing to read it. :)

I still have the BIOS/UEFI stuff on a 1GB thumb drive.

My BIOS was at 1.48 with my last T420, lets hope the downgrade still works via DOS with BIOS 1.5.2

The bootable thumb drive is 1 GB, I´ll copy the needed files to a folder.

You will need to make a bootable volume from them to get into DOS for downgrading BIOS.

 

Here are the files: https://www.magentacloud.de/lnk/fvStA9ob

Good luck!

      Hola a todos, primero que nada estoy muy contento de a ver econtrado un foro de español sobre hackintosh.
      Mi problema consesite en que descargue unos drivers de esta pagina: https://github.com/chris1111/Wireless-USB-Adapter-Clover
      Seguí los pasos instale los kets en la carpeta EFI/CLOVER/OTHERS todo tal cual como dice ahi la instalación. luego segui los pasos de configurar la red dentro de configuracion del sistema etc.
      Lo cual el nombre me quedo en en0.
      El driver o kets funciona bien es reconocible por el S.O de hecho conecta la red, pero me dice que no tiene IP AUTO ASIGNADA Y LA OTRA QUE HAY UNA DESCONEXION A CADA RATO(como que desconectaras y conectaras el dispositvo usb a cada rato)
      Me gustaria que me ayuden con eso si es posible, Muchas Gracias!!

      I am making a minimal Clover build for the fastest boot possible with the boot6 file in legacy mode.
      While looking at the preboot.log, I noticed that there is a line without explanation (at 0:892). Apparently, whatever it is, the execution time of it is close to 2 seconds, more than 55% of the total logged boot time in the current configuration. This does not change whether I use USB 2 or USB 3 port.
       
      Is there a way to eliminate or speed up the above? Also, is there anything else you can suggest to improve the performance based on the below log file? Which moment in the boot process corresponds to the start time in preboot.log?  
      The last thing I would like to understand is the delay/timeout after the boot6 file has loaded, and the number 6 disappears from the screen. For about 2 seconds or slightly less, I can press any key, and then it will enter the BIOS-like interface from the boot6 file. Without further knowledge, it seems like those 2 seconds are just delay time, and only after that is CLOVERX64.efi actually started, which, I presume, is approximately when the preboot.log timer starts. So, if the aforementioned is correct, can I get rid of this delay as well? Note that I am using the boot1f32 file to chain-load boot6, which does not include the initial 2-second wait period for a keypress.

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (February 2020) Updated to Clover r5104 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Updated acidanthera VoodooPS2 kext v2.1.1 the older 1.9 to the Misc Folder as an option.
        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 (the 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.

      I used this command: diskutil info disk0s2 | grep -i "Partition UUID" | rev | cut -d' ' -f 1 | rev

      But I accidentally removed the wrong disk and now my main windows drive is not appearing in the bootloader. I can't figure out how to get it back. I tried resetting my windows drive, but I kept getting an error. I also reset my mac and reinstalled Catalina.

      Im having similar issue with my HS setup, dell latitute 3480, i5-7200U
      Once the hdmi plugged in, the laptop display went blank, only could see the external tv
      But, when i put my laptop to sleep & wake up again, both screen got display (hdmi still connected)
      Even the hdmi could be plugged off & in (after sleep), the laptop display is fine
       
      What could be the culprit?
      Dell’s MacBook Pro IORegistry.zip
      config.plist.zip
