OS X Snow Leopard on ThinkPad X60

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, first post here!


Need a little help, and hope to return the favor as I get better versed on this subject...


I've installed OS X on my IBM / Lenovo X60 using iATK OS S 3 (10.6.3) and the good news is I can boot up in safe mode (-x) to a totally functional system. When I attempt a normal boot, it gives me a message that I must turn off my computer. The graphical picture of a power button with that message in several languages.


Used iATKOS for convenience, I have a copy of Snow Leopard on the bookshelf above my desk :)


Specs on the X60: http://support.lenov...ID=PD010033#arc (Mine has the T2400, 2 GB of RAM)


To get this far I've tried several things, on the latest attempt I've disabled speed step and used minimal customization options during the install.


Booting up with (-v), the last lines I see are:




Any advice is greatly appreciated! Can't wait till I've got a slick little macbook that's tough as nails.

It's a kernel panic with the VoodooHDA kext. The reason you can boot in safe mode is because VoodooHDA doesn't get loaded. Delete the kext and boot with -f

What's the best way to go about removing it? I noticed that I can't see the Extensions directory in finder... and I tried kextunload via the terminal, but it asks for a sudo password. I don't have a password, and it won't accept it blank.


EDIT: Now the system refuses to boot, yet again... Going to do a fresh install on a different HDD without the VooDoo, and I guess I'll give up if that doesn't work. The HD I'm using is out of a machine that was dropped, but it's shown no errors. The system is painfully slow though.

That seems to have fixed one thing (removing the VoodooHDA)... but now when I boot up not in safe mode I see the apple boot screen, with the loading animation frozen. I do have a cursor at some point though, of the colored spinning pin wheel in the top left corner of the screen.


EDIT: Just tried GraphicsEnabler=No and now I'm at the boot screen with a cursor. Can't do anything though.

Any advice? Not sure what I can do to provide more information... If I boot in safemode it just boots up, and if I boot regularly I am stuck with the boot screen & moving cursor / colored spinning wheel...

2nd option for Intel GMA 950. I've also installed with the 1st, and both (1&2). It seems like every time it does the same thing. Is there an easy way to remove my current kext and replace it while booted in safe mode?

I would try delete all graphics kext and see what happens. Back them up first and replace the kext you need.

    • Few more minutes to go before going live again with https://OSXLatitude.com
          So you can lock this topic again @Allan Hopefully for a bit longer than a couple of weeks this time hehe.
    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance.

    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????
