Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

Recommended Posts

@Smith@@ -- bummer. too bad that this EDID does not work for 17" HP.  

 

to answer the question. the comment in the Graphics config.plist is just a convenience to remind one what the EDID is for. as far as i can tell, the system will use the contents of the file /S/L/Displays/Override/Vendor-X/Product-Y by matching what vendor/product is in the EDID. but it gets the EDID first by looking at the LCD/Display HW if found then it will use it if it is a complete/valid EDID and then ignore anything in the same file i.e. EDID in the file.

 

the only way i found that system would use a different EDID was to use Clover to inject (overwrite) the EDID or put in DSDT in IGPU as AAPL00,override-no-connect property. i guess i just got lucky to find an EDID that works. TimeWalker mentioned he used SwitchResX to rework his EDID to a glitch-free state.

Do you know which parameters he use?

Hi everyone, 

I had created my USB installer (10.8.3) with the Kogen's tutorial of the first post and yesterday I've installed the tluck's ZIP files to the ESP of my USB, then I've re-installed the system (10.8.3).

As I already had downloaded the 10.9 to an external HD, all that I did was to double click on it, right from the external HD, after check the files, it restarted the computer and I choose the 10.9 installer at the boot.

 

For my surprise, this worked pretty much better. 

 

Now, I have all the applications which require Apple ID working fine. The only things that didn't work yet was the sound, the USB 3.0 and Flash videos just play some seconds and freeze.

What do you recommend for solving that?

I'm afraid to install Extra folder with AppleHDA and things go wrong after reboot... 

 

 

Thanks, Kogen and tluck, and all for the hard work!

 

p.s.: almost forgot to tell you, Brightness control are working perfect with ScrLk to decrease and Pause to increase. I had an issue before, when the screen came off, it always came so bright to the point I should restart to control again. Now, with your help, it's working fine! :D

@Fabiano_Nomad - it sounds like you did not install the custom kexts from my zip file to your /System/Library/Extensions folder. 

the zip contains kexts for 10.8.5 - i would upgrade to this level and then install the kexts to your HD according to the instructions (kext wizard is a good way). /Extra is not used by clover.

Clover will inject kexts if they don't exist in /S/L/E but they may conflict and not actually be used. you can certainly leave kexts on ESP and have Clover inject them. There are 2 that conflict with existing kexts: AppleHDA and BroadcomBluetooth.  you can just move these out of /S/L/E to say /Temp and test clover is injecting the alternative kexts. you should have sound then!

YEAH!! \o/

 

You're the man! 

 

Now, only left to work USB 3.0, the mini wi-fi card DW 1510 I gave up to try to make it work... Lenovo put some kind of locking which verifies the wi-fi as not original and don't let it work.

Hmm,

I just updated to Mavericks and now I have some problems. (Using the dsdt from tlucks bundle)

The first one: When I press the "Mute Vol" button, the system freezes. (Manually turning down volume to 0 works)

 

The second one: Sleep does not really work, the Power LED flashes but nothing happens.

 

I looked through the latest posts, but I havent really seen anyone else with this problem.

I installed OSX on my 2nd HDD, maybe that is the problem?

 

Another annoying problem is scrolling. In most apps scrolling works like on windows. But using firefox it doesnt really work, I get this thing, that you also have in windows without drivers. http://0.tqn.com/d/webdesign/1/0/r/H/1/cursor_all-scroll_ie.gif

PS: Does anyone know how this guy got multitouch?

Yeah i believe there is more multi gesture support than we are taking advantage in the default configuration. Rehabman changed the implementation to be more flexible in the later revs but it may require some mapping changes? I would particularly like to use the swipe left/right thing. i hope someone can figure it out! 

 

Anyway, I reposted a zip today that has a few minor changes since the October version.

 

10-Nov-2013

  • Updated Clover to b2293
  • Made high-res vs low-res config.plist and DSDT more consistent - difference is EDID and DualLink
  • Revised EDID and DSDT for 1600x900 - added 50Mhz option
  • Added folder for Displays/Overrides (for more natural color gamma curves and more screen size options) in this zip

One thing i suggest folks try ... boot with MBR USB instead of UEFI on HD

I have been booting CloverEFI MBR on a USB vs the HD for the last week or so and this seems to resolves a number of the very annoying UEFI issues - but i still get all the benefits of Clover. For example, my system always sleeps vs somes goes in limbo land. It always shuts all the way down. and the mute doesn't total hang it.

 

No other changes as the same EFI/Clover folder is copied to the USB EFI folder... takes about 2 seconds longer but i have a much more stable system. here is how i built the USB: 

 

1) format USB MBR with 1 fat32 partition 

2) install clover like in picture (below)

3) copy/replace /Volumes/USB/EFI/CLOVER with same folder from HD - that is the ESP/EFI/CLOVER

4) in bios, make boot from USB 1st choice - instead of UEFI Cloverx64.efi (2nd choice)

I did a lot of fiddling the EDIDs over the last week. So i think i know definitively why the 1600x900 default EDID was broken. i spent too much time looking at detailed timings and in the end found out what was causing the drastic VRSYNC/buffer hang messages. The problem was  in the EDID "basic timings" section - the built-in AUO EDID had a bogus string. i looked at MAC EDID and the one Lenovo installs for Windows... and could see a pattern!

 

the symptoms were sometime it boots up with white/blank screen. GFX splotches, glitches and stalls were common. Especially when using mission control or moving windows around it would really hang up - sometimes never to recover. well the EDID from LGD for 1600x900 fixed all that --- but know i know why!!! To prove it (3rd Take!) I was able to take the built-in EDID and just change 90 to 80 and everything worked fine - which happened to have 2 sets of detailed timings. So then i decided to rebuild the EDID and add a 2nd set of detailed timings. so now it has 60 and 50 Hz

I just installed your new package and it looks like the sleep issues are gone. :o

Also Volume-Mute does work again.

 

But RehabMans Kext doesnt seem to work for me yet.

It seems to recognise inputs with 3+ fingers, but it only beeps. :D

@vapayo - great.  thanks for feedback.

 

the VoodooPS2controller works for 2 finger scrolling by default. but for 3+ fingers, i think there is some keyboard mapping that may have to happen? 

look in the VoodooPSController Plugins folder and there are 3 kexts - the keyboard Info.plist has some swipe settings.

@tluck-

I installed latest pack and used your suggestion about MBR USB, and the sleep is much better (perfect so far). The mute problem was resolved with the latest pack, even without MBR USB boot.

Why would this make a difference, booting from an USB? It is loading the same Clover and configuration, right?

usb3? do you have a PCI card?  for the the dell wifi you need to install a white-list modded biios. 

Yep, I have three USB ports: one at the left side and two at rear, one of that is 3.0; I couldn't find yet a way to have it working.

@fabiano_Nomad - do you have T420S vs T420? i think there is a GenericUSBXHCI  kext or patched AppleUSBXCHI that may get your USB3 working. look in the downloads area.

@tetonne - that EDID is 60Hz - same as the original. the change for that one compared to the original was just to change panel size to 310 instead of 309

Hi, i want make another try, can you pass me a new edid with these fixes?

Do you have changed only panel size and timing? Because i think to have make already these tries..

ok so to make use of 3+ finger swipes was very easy. the swipes will send certain key strokes and all you have to do is map them to something using the system keyboard prefs. it took me longer to finger out how to swipe on the small pad. left/right swipe are best detected by touching 3 fingers and swipe in the direction fingers are pointing vs sliding hand sideways.  from his notes:

  • Swipe Up, Down, Left, Right are now assigned by default to the following keyboard combinations: Control+Command+UpArrow, Control+Command+DownArrow, Control+Command+LeftArrow, Control+Command+RightArrow. This should work better with international keyboards. You will need to use System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts to adjust to assign these keys to your desired actions. If you were using three finger swipe left and right for back/forward in your web browser, you will need to reconfigure these actions via the Info.plist or use a program like KeyRemap4MacBook to remap the keys generated to the keys used by your browser for forward/back (that's what I plan to do).

I chose to change what keys the swipes send in Info.plist. i just changed left/right swipe to match Command+[ and Command+] which are what Safari and Finder use for Back/Forward.

i changed Info.plist here: 

/System/Library/Extensions/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents

from

$ diff Info.plist Info.orig.plist

      Hi Hypervisors,
       
      I have been working to move my Late 2009 Xserve MacOS Server onto Ubuntu 18.04 LTS QEMU/KVM based virtual machine using OVMF and Clover.
       
      After much effort and testing based on the following information from: Kraxel's, Kholia, Gordon Turner and Clover site:
      https://www.kraxel.org/blog/2017/09/running-macos-as-guest-in-kvm/
      https://github.com/kholia/OSX-KVM
      https://gist.github.com/gordonturner/2a2e5ecde5e7860b52e2
      https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home
       
      I have now managed to get OVMF/Clover boot and install of MacOS Sierra.
       
      I started with Ubuntu 16.04 initially but this required download and compile of QEMU to get update of machines to: pc-q35-2.9 or better, so I moved to Ubuntu 18.04, which has pc-q35.2.11 available as standard.
       
      So I am now working with standard Ubuntu 18.04 LTS based systems with following packages: kvm/qemu/libvirt/bridge-utils/ovmf/virt-manager
       
      As I want to use PCIe Passthrough for a number of PCIe card currently installed in the server (SmallTree 10GbE & Areca ARC-1883 SAS RAID) I set up my machine with linux kernel boot configuration (/etc/default/grub) of: 
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="iommu=1 intel_iommu=on" (as my machine is intel VT-d based HW virtualisation)
       
      This resulted in creation of a number of iommu groups (see /sys/kernel/iommu_group directory for this and this posting for information: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/ubuntu-17-04-vfio-pcie-passthrough-kernel-update-4-14-rc1/119639 , noting that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS has kernel version: 4.15.0-22-generic so there is no need to do kernel update for iommu to work).
       
      Using bare minimal Clover config.plist:
       
       
      And following Clover UEFI drivers:
       
      I can boot MacOS, but it is very very slow... it sits on the apple boot logo for over a minutes before finally moving onto the progress bar.
      The other problem I have is that no PCI or Network devices appear in the "About This Mac" System Information Report and I cannot get any network connectivity from bridged E1000 network device.
       
      Here is my virtlib.xml dump for the virtual machine:
       

      Can any one advise of whether I need to update the CLOVER config.plist to add extra items in to allow network and PCI Passthrough to work.
       
      Thank you.
       
      Regards,

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Release v2018.05.17 on GitHub Updated to Clover r4458 Updated Lilu.kext - supports both Sierra and High Sierra Updated AppleALC.kext - supports both Sierra and High Sierra + added back DVMT patch for 10.13.2+ Updated VoodooPS2Controller.kext (RehabMan version) + SSDT updates for T460 Added Frank's T470p DSDT files
        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 (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.

      Updated for newer Clover versions and with additional instructions for more apps: gdisk and RU.
       
      So what may be overlooked sometimes in the whole boot loader discussion is the ability of UEFI to do more than just loading an OS. This is why I see ".efi" files as "apps" because in fact they just are, built on a special kind of API: UEFI. So, you can actually do stuff like editing, diagnosing, testing certain stuff at the lowest possible system level without booting to any OS.
       
      DISCLAIMER: Use this guide at your own risk! For educational purposes only! Should do not any harm, but remember you are dealing with rather low level stuff. But at least for me everything went flawless.
       
      Prerequisites:
      Working clover installation Clover Configurator or some app to edit the config.plist  
      1) Memtest
       
      This is how to install the UEFI version of Memtest with Clover:
      Download memtest, I used this link: Image for creating boot-able USB Drive Open the archive by double clicking on it. Mount the file memtest86-usb.img within by double clicking again. Now, you should see a folder named EFI in this volume, containing a folder BOOT. Open it. The files containing it are the actual app, in 32 and 64 bit versions. Think in almost all cases we want to use the 64 bit version. Now, mount your EFI partition, using Clover configurator. Create a folder named MemTest86 in the EFI folder on your main drive. Copy all files in the EFI/BOOT folder from the mounted image to your newly created folder. That ends the basic setup! Now, we add the correct Menu entry to the clover boot menu, so that we can actually start this app.
       
      Get into clover configurator, open your standard config.plist from your boot drive and go to the GUI section. Under "Custom Entries", add an entry like this:
       

       
      Please note while the path you enter is not case sensitive, you must make sure you use the backslash "\" for entering paths, and not a slash. So basically what we do is tell clover where it can find the app, give it a name, and tell clover it is a "Windows" app. Note: with older Clover versions we had to set this to "Linux", but for now "Windows" is the setting that works.
       
      If you prefer to do a manual config, add this entry to your config.plist, under GUI/Custom/Entries:
      <dict> <key>CustomLogo</key> <true/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>MemTest86</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Ignore</key> <false/> <key>Image</key> <string>\EFI\CLOVER\themes\Icons\os_mint.png</string> <key>Path</key> <string>\EFI\MemTest86\BOOTX64.efi</string> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> Now, save and reboot and you should see the newly created entry. Note that I also used a custom Icon - this is optional - in case you don't you will just see a generic windows icon instead:
       

       
      And this is how it looks like:
       

       

       
      PS: also noticeably faster and you get also more features with this version than with the older version, for example it does now write a log file. For more Information, see: http://www.passmark.com/forum/showthread.php?4315-Memtest86-Version-5-Beta-%28Pure-UEFI%29
       
       
      2) gdisk
       
      Another app you can use is the UEFI version of gdisk (aka GPT fdisk), which you can use to edit and change your partitions.
       
      Warning! Install and use this app at your own risk! If you do something wrong here you might nuke your drive(s), so only use that if you know what you are doing.
       
      This is how to do it (even easier):
      Download here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gptfdisk/files/gptfdisk/1.0.1/gdisk-binaries/gdisk-efi-1.0.1.zip/download Mount your EFI partition Unzip the file and copy the resulting folder to your EFI Folder, so your path goes like this "/Volumes/EFI/EFI/gdisk-efi" Get into clover configurator, open your standard config.plist from your boot drive and go to the GUI section. Add an entry like this:  
      If you prefer to do a manual config, add this entry to your config.plist, under GUI/Custom/Entries:
      <dict> <key>CustomLogo</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>GDisk</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Ignore</key> <false/> <key>Image</key> <string></string> <key>Path</key> <string>\EFI\gdisk-efi\gdisk_x64.efi</string> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> When everything went OK you should see this after selecting the respective entry in Clover:
       

       
       
      3) RU
       
      I recently found one more app that might be interesting to some, and thats "Read Universal" or in short "RU". This is a tool that enables you to debug your BIOS and read (and modify!) every imaginable data, including UEFI variables, ACPI Tables etc.
       
      Warning, again! I think blindly messing around with this app is even more dangerous, but on the other hand it gives you access to a lot of potentially interesting stuff.
      Download here: http://ruexe.blogspot.de/ The next steps are basically the same as above so make a folder in your EFI partition, copy the .EFI files and make another custom entry in your config.plist Here are some screens:
       

       

       

       
       
      So this is what you also can do with UEFI and clover. I am curious which other useful applications might exist!
       
      Anybody who knows, maybe post it here?

      Hello everybody,
      I occasionally have system crashes and suspect that it is related to RAM. However, this RAM is completely new, and a run with MemTest86+ from the USB stick showed no errors. However, if I use Memtest on MacOS, I get a bunch of error messages, but sometimes none (I restart the computer between tests).  
      As I just discovered, my RAM is not on the recommended vendor list of my motherboard, nor is it on the manufacturer side of the RAM. I have read several times that the RAM may not have been tested by the manufacturer on this platform. Not a single X99 motherboard is listed for this RAM.
      So I also suspect that my RAM is not compatible.
      But if that were the case, how could it sometimes work completely error-free?
       
      During RAM tests in summer 2017 (a slightly different setup, 4x8GB but still G.Skill Ripjaws V) I had no errors at Memtest under MacOS, if I remember correctly. At that time it ran under Sierra 10.12.6. AptioMemoryFix.efi could also cause problems.
      I am appreciative for any help!
       
      Here is an excerpt from a faulty test.
      It is noticeable that it is always the same address during the test, but a different one after each test.
