HD4000 problems with Lenovo Z500

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I got my new laptop a week ago and have been struggling with its HD 4000 Graphics Card after Mountain Lion was installed. I use clover as bootloader and have been able to fix most of the problems at this point. Yet I still cannot turn on the QE/CI with my graphics card. I tried the "magic code", EDID Injection, also followed some DSDT modification methods in the forum, but still with no luck. So frustrated at this point. Can anyone help me with this? The dsdt file is attached. I made some patches on it (like Audio fix, DTGP etc.), but left the graphics part untouched. Along with it, I also put my Clover config file and my Display rom file in there. 

 

Hardware information is as follows:
CPU:i7-3612QM
Graphics:HD 4000
Audio:ALC269
Wireless:Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (substituted with a USB Wireless Adapter)
Lan:ATL810X
Touchpad:Elan (Multi-touch is malfunctional)
RAM:8GB
HD:1T

 

Thanks!

hello

 

about hd 4000

 

Intel HD 4000

 

u can use clover to do that...

 

or u can try new keys in chameleon

 

good hack

Thank you sir. Followed your post, I realized I deleted those graphics-related files to get the installation done so there's no plist file in AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext. So I replaced all the kext files with the original ones and it worked!

Hi.

I also have Lenovo Z500. I'm using Clover bootloader and EDID injection like bullfroglou.

I can't get QE/CI to work (no kext loaded)

 

OSX 10.8.5

 

PS. I think that SMBIOS for Z500 with HD4000 should be MacBookPro9,1 instead of 9,2?

Everything is working now, even second HDMI display with full qe/ci.

My EDID was 0x0166003

 

Just can't run ALC269 on Z500.

I'm using MacBookPro9,2 as my SMBIOS configuration now. Clover does not support MacBookPro9,1 anyway. 

If you are looking for a ALC269 kext, I suggest you to search "Lenovo Z580 ML Installation" in Google to find the solution.
