Lenovo Y480 (Got ML installed)

Recommended Posts

Hello All:

I have a Lenovo Y480 bought in Nov 2012:

I7 (Sorry I don't know the model)

8GB DDR3 RAM

750 GB HDD (GUID)

Intel 4000+Nvidia 630M

Dell wireless (bought from ebay)

Intel Gigabit ethernet

Bluetooth dongle

 

I was able to install Mountain Lion and the update to 8.2 went fine.

The only things not working:

No QE/Ci for the Intel GPU:

 

Unknown:

 

Chipset Model: Unknown

Type: GPU

Bus: Built-In

VRAM (Total): 64 MB of Shared System Memory

Vendor: Intel (0x8086)

Device ID: 0x0166

Revision ID: 0x0009

Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded

Displays:

Display:

Resolution: 1024 x 768

Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)

Main Display: Yes

Mirror: Off

Online: Yes

The builtin Ethernet is not working.

Battery is not recognized.

I have a dual boot with Linux (Manjaro Linux an Arch Linux derivative) using UEFI and GUID and ML. I am not able to get Chamelon to install as the default bootloader or to get grub2 to boot ML. I have to use the USB installer.

I installed using the iaktos ML.

For the HD4000 you can add the following to your org.chamelion.boot. plist:

 

 

<key>device-properties</key>
<string>7f0000000100000001000000730000000200000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000004006601140000006800640061002d0067006600780000000d0000006f6e626f6172642d32</string>

 

Go for a vanilla installation.

The CPU is working but I notice this from the dmesg command:

 

WARNING: IOPlatformPluginUtil : getCPUIDInfo: this is an unknown CPU model 0x3a

 

Also I install Chamelon but grub2 still is the bootloader.

What is the current setup? Windows/Linux/OSX? How did you partition? Multiple HDD's? If grub still loads, you have to set the OSX partition active, or the chameleon partition if you have used the GPT method for installing chameleon.

 

If OSX is on 1 HDD, an no other operating system is installed on that HDD, just boot from that HDD, grub should not load then, instead chameleon should pop up.

I have one 750GB HDD, with OX and Linux. It is set up for UEFI boot and GUID partition table.

 

I installed iatkos ML2 and everything works, except boot off HDD and QE/CI.

 

alexs-iphone:~ adewolf$ ls /Extra

Extensions Keymaps modules

Extensions.mkext Themes smbios.plist

alexs-iphone:~ adewolf$

 

No

org.chamelion.boot. plist file.

Ok I am able to boot and I did find the chamelon boot.plist file. I put in your HD4000 string in the

org.chamelion.boot

. plist and got 4 small screens on the display. Any ideas on how to fix that?

What do you mean with 4 small screens? 4 times the desktop or something? Can you make a screenshot? I used the EFI string i found somewhere on the net, worked for me, is the same one i shared with you. Did you delete the nvidia kexts?

What happens if you boot without the efi string, is everything except the acceleration and resolution ok? So no screen tearing etc..

using iATkos ML2? via DVD or flash drive?

 

my z480 works nicely with iatkos ML2 dvd.

 

for the QE/CI used this string injected in chameleon.Boot.plist.org
