Lenovo T530 Working with Mountain Lion?

Recommended Posts

My company just issued me a Lenovo T530 to replace my 5 year old Dell Inspiron 1720 (running 10.6.8). I am hoping to run Mountain Lion on this new Lenovo T530. Any one have a T530 working with Mountain Lion? This is the high-res model with a Core i5 CPU.

 

The searching I have turns up a couple of T430 that are sort of working and I can't find anything on a T530. I am hoping someone has this working can provide some pointers or as DSDT file.

 

I am going to start working from the T420 install threads tonight and see how far I get.

 

Thanks,

Kevin

After a week or so of workI have 10.8.2 running on it.

 

USB works out of the box.

Webcam works out of the box.

Sleep is working (uses SleepEnabler)

Audio is working (uses VoodooHDA 2.8.2 - not perfect, no mic input - jacks don't match the real configuration and its a little scratchy.

Bluetooth works with modification to the IOBluetooth kext

HD4000 graphics with EFI string in the info.plist. No idea if the external video ports are working yet.

Wireless doesn't work and won't until someone finds out how to the patch the BIOS white list - Fixed with AWL5088 USB dongle ($13 at amazon).

Voltage and fan speed sensors aren't working.

Speedstepping and such doesn't work yet, because I can't run with NullPowerManagement yet.

      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.

      Olá gente. Já faz um tempo que eu venho pesquisando sobre o Hackintosh e a obsessão só vem crescendo. 
       
      Li muita coisa mas ainda não tenho total certeza em como fazer o processo. Meu notebook é um Lenovo G40-80, gostaria da opinião de vocês se realmente é aconselhável fazer, se rodaria legal e coisas assim.
       
      System Info está aqui (https://i.imgur.com/4EMTdRc.png) 
       
      Já sei como criar o pendrive bootavel e que minha placa de rede não é compatível, usarei um adaptador usb até a outra chegar. O que eu mais venho duvida é sobre pós-instalação e sobre quais kexts devo usar.
      Caso for possível o hack, farei um tutorial exclusivo para quem tem essa maquina e está sofrendo também. 
       
      Agradeceria muito as vossas ajudas.

      Hallo,
      habe versucht nach der Anleitung von http://x220.mcdonnelltech.com/  auf einen X220 i7 zu installieren, bisher leider erfolglos. kann mir jemand die angehangenen Log Meldungen interpretieren und einen Tip geben an welcher Stelle ich weiter probieren muss. Habe es schon mit den folgenden Bootparametern probiert
      -v -x -s -f cpus=1 maxmem=4096 GraphicsEnabler=No -no-zp
      Es war ein 8 GB Speicherriegel gesteckt und die "neue" WLAN Karte, außerdem ist zusätzlich zur MSATA eine weitere HDD installiert.
