Hi all.

 

I would like to share the results of  mixing my work and work of  other before me on my T430s (2355).

I use the post of UocNguyen as template(Thanks for the work!)

Working:

  • CPU PowerManagement  (SpeedStep enabled using ssdt-gen script and clover states generation option)
  • Intel HD4000 with AppleIntelFrameBufferCapri patched at latest version (10.9.3) to use internal LVDS and external DP port (i read apple removed support for embedded VGA start from 10.8.3 kext, from my tests i'm able to use a VGA monitor while start laptop from docking station with lid closed but there are something bad with EDID probe and with refresh so i think the very big problem is the VGA output use the same channel of internal LCD/LVDS)
  • Audio work with patched AppleHDA (and IOAudioFamily from 10.9.0) Speaker/Headphone/Internal Mic/Mic on headphone/
  • Ethernet work with AppleE1000.kext
  • Trackpoint, touchpad and keyboard work with VoodooPS2
  • Patched Bluetooth kext with support for BCM20702A0
  • USB 3 with GenericUSBXHCI ( Run at 5gbps), all 3 ports are capable to charging an iPad
  • Battery recognized with ACPIbatteryManager
  • WWAN HSPA Working with SIM inserted, modded CellPhoneHelper.kext,IOSerialFamily and modded CCL in /Library/ModemScripts/ (tell me if work!)
  • UEFI boot with latest version of CLOVER
  • Sleep, wake, restart and shutdown fully working (10.9.2 seems to resolve this issue)
  • Keyboard. Multimedia keys: Sleep, Prev / Play / Pause / Next (Brightness control with Fn-F8/F9 not work, mapped in DSDT with Fn-K/P)
  • Windows Installation on other SSD partition run fine with VMware Fusion Bootcamp and directly form choose it in Boot selection menù (when you boot with windows you must restore Clover EFI boot option manually in UEFI BIOS to start osx later, because the Micro$oft Boot loader set itself as primary when start  :yes: )

Additional external device:

* NOT working and know problem:

  • Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Wireless adapter( simply no kext exist for this device....)
  • I tried to install mPCI-E Broadcom WLAN used in my old T420s but it's seems not possible to flash modded bios without external programmer. No success with any other methods like tape pin 20 of mPCI-E or placing in second mPCI-E slot.
  • Card reader (Partially working with VoodooSDHC kext, but sometimes system hangs. I removed the SD reader for using Wifi adapter)
  • Brought video from iTunes doesn't play on LVDS device (LCD display attached on VGA on board doesn't support HDCP)
  • WWAN icon in status bar appear only after sleep/wake cycle :huh: 
  • Headphone jack sometimes not work after sleep (it's seems to fixing itself after another sleep/wake cycle :blink:)
  • Headphone Volume control 

 

 

 For install use info from T420 thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285678-lenovo-thinkpad-t420-with-uefi-only/page-25?do=findComment&comment=1952283

NOTE: need to change the SMBIOS hardware section and CustomUUID to your own hardware.

My pack: https://www.firedrive.com/file/9991150C50684CB7

 

I want to thanks all creators of any components used for this test.

 

PS: sorry for bad english  ;)

Good job @eilatuno

 

It is long time I have not boot into OS X as I am quite busy and most of time I'm working on Linux environment. Just back and took an upgrade to OS X 10.9.3 and it work well. I'm updating new report to #1 to keep topic clean and easy to find information.

Hey guys! I'm having a problem with my T430 (Intel GPU). At first, after installing mavericks with a myHack installation USB, my laptop wouldn't start. After replacing the Bluetooth-related kext with the ones you provided, I was able to boot, but I couldn't get the actual Bluetooth working (it seems to be undetectable). My experience with other thinkpad laptops (which are, in general, quite good for this stuff) is that the problem was the Chamaleon bootloader, so I decided to install Clover, but when I installed it and after rebooting it (I replaced the standard config.plist with yours), I got the strange EFI bootloader screen (which is not related with clover in anyway, it's part of the UEFI Bios system). So, to sum up, I don't know what do I have to do in order to install Clover and boot up the machine.

Oh, the disk is partitioned as GPT and the Bios is set to "Legacy First".

 

Thank you guys!!

Hi Anita if you use my package you must set UEFI only boot setting in your BIOS config. Before this you must configure the EFI/ESP partition and place the EFI folder from the zip directly in this small partition that already exist if you partition table is GPT. You have only to reformat this hidden partition from HFS to FAT32. This is a good guide for do this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287737-how-toclover-on-efi-partitionadd-to-bios/.

Oh, thank you!! I'll check it out now and post what happens  ;)

 

EDIT: Ok, so I've successfully installed Clover, but every time I try to boot Maverick, the screen goes completely black (with no Apple logo whatsoever) and, after 2 minutes or so, the computer reboots. Booting with the -v flag shows this message:

efiboot loaded from device Acpi(PNP0A03.0)/Pci(1F|2)/SATA(0.0)/HD(Part2.SigFF040F85-B046-95E0-91830FEBA0857)
boot file path: System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
..

My GPU is a Intel 4000 and I have NOT added any SMBIOS or UUID to my config.plist. I have tried to boot with GraphicsEnabler=N, but clover keeps stuck in that step.

Have you tried to boot without caches from clover?

Ok, I'm tired of trying. I don't know what to do. Did you used niresh or myhack, or just created a Clover OS X Installation USB??

Ok, ok!! Sorry for being that annoying, but I've finally managed to get EVERYTHING working. The problem is that, after updating to 10.9.2, I don't know how to patch the AppleIntelCapri kext thing. Can someone please, please, upload their own patched version, I would really appreciate that a lot. Thanks for all!! ;)

The screen keeps on going to black before I see the desktop. I have changed the kexts (bluetooth and capri ones) and corrected permissions. Is there anything I'm doing wrong?? Do i have to add something to Clover's config.plist?? Is it that I need to use the DSDT?? What am I doing wrong??

if you use my pack, the DSDT is already included...

To alleviate some confusion, most of your post install issues have been discussed over here in the 420 thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285678-lenovo-thinkpad-t420-with-uefi-only/page-25?do=findComment&comment=1952283 This link also drops you right on tluck's 420 guide which is a good jumping off point for those of you still having trouble installing. The thread was meant to be renamed to include the 430 but I never provided the OP with my files. It seems that Uoc Nguyen and eliatuno have a good packs. Please feel free to head over there and continue the discussion. I'd hate to see fellow 430 owners struggle and redo research when there's a parallel thread. Thanks for your work so far.

@Sheep_Reaper: I think it is better to make another thread for T430 caused T420 and W520 are good threads for modern Thinkpads but they are a bit old and have some different hardware with T430 need another solution to solve it such as: NVIDIA card, Intel HD 4000, Bluetooth... I have research across all related threads and forum to make T430 work well with latest release of the Mavericks. Based on your reply, I think it is better to put all related links to OP to make it easy to reach and solve people issues (common issues).

Ah ha,

 

Quite persuasive. I concur. However, the OP for the 420 thread is hard to contact. He has not been active for quite some time. As 430 questions pop up, I will direct them here. Currently there is at least one user that needs to enable discrete graphics and has thus far been unsuccessful. Perhaps you could jump in temporarily over to the 420 thread for some advice? I have a 2349GCU so no discrete graphics I'm afraid.

Hi all

 

i've updated my system to 10.9.4, so i patched the new version of AppleIntelFramebufferCapri and IOBluetoothFamily, you can find them at end of post.

i tried to patch AppleHDA but audio don't work has expected, so i ask if anyone has successfully patched audio for ALC269?

 

i've another question for you, this update (10.9.4) and 10.9.3, broke my shutdown/reboot sequence, is the same for anyone?

 

Have a nice day

Thanx for the nice Guide. I followed it but when it booted the installer USB it says CPU halted and shutsdown. So i used myHAck and installed the system and was able to login to the installed system using -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No. Any help on how to setup graphics, ethernet , audio. Below is my Thinkpad config

I have a t430 (Model: 2350-b49). I have all of them working on the installed MAvericks 10.9.0 except Brightness control. So i wanted to know if there is any kext to implement this without DSDT and any shortcut key to do this brightness change

HD3000/HD4000 Brightness Fix:

DSDT Patches from here: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch

 

Apply:

"Rename GFX0 to IGPU"

"Brightness Fix (HD3000/HD4000)"

- rename patch must be done first and to all DSDT/SSDT that contain references to GFX0 that you're including in your final SSDT set

- Brightness patch must be done to the DSDT or SSDT that contains the definition for Device GFX0 (search for 'Device (GFX0)'

- Place DSDT and SSDT (if necessary) into a place where the bootloader will load them. For Clover, EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (DSDT.aml, SSDT-x.aml where 'x' is a number). For Chameleon, /Extra/ssdt.aml, /Exra/ssdt-1.aml, /Extra/ssdt-2.aml, etc.

 

Install: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Backlight

 

Shortcut keys are a separate issue from working backlight control... Depends on the PS2 drivers you're using.

Can we do this with a kext rather than a DSDT( never done this).  Any guide as how to upgrade Mavericks 10.9.0 to 10.9.4

Requires kext and DSDT edits. Follow instructions in post #48.

 

Upgrading OS X point version will depend on your procedure for installing... Many updates contain changes to kexts you may have patched, and thus will be overwritten.

      Hi,
       
      I'm having annoying graphical artifacts / glitches with the following configuration on apps like Firefox. The screen flickers when scrolling. Everything else is working properly. (Brightness, graphical acceleration, battery, etc)
       
      Configuration:
      - Thinkpad T440P
      - Intel Core I7 Haswell 4712MQ + Intel HD4600, (no Nvidia)
      - 16GB RAM,
      - 500GB SSD Western Digital,
      - MacOS 10.13.6 (but affects also 10.13.1 before update),
      - FHD LG IPS 14" Panel 1920x1080.
       
      I'm using the attached config.plist with patched framebuffer using Intel FB Patcher. I initially followed the T440P guide on TonyMacOSx86, but it looks somehow outdated since it doesn't use Whatevergreen and other old kexts (as well as kext framebuffer patching).
       
      I'm using the following kexts in Clover/Other:
      - Lilu,
      - Whatevergreen,
      - FakeSMC,
      - IntelMausiEthernet,
      - USBInjectAll,
      - VoodooPS2Controller (from tluck T460 topic to support trackpad),
      - ACPIBatteryManager.
       
      ACPI is patched using SSDT-T440P.aml provided by tonymacosx86 topic on T440P:
      https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-lenovo-thinkpad-t440p.233282/
       
      Attached IOReg Dump, config.plist and screenshot of kexts used. Kextstat output:

      PREFACE
       
      I’ve used a 2015 15” MBP as my main system since it was released. I do photo and video editing in the Adobe suite regularly and have been eyeballing the performance of the latest MBP models. I’m on the road all the time, so a laptop is basically my only option.

      After the whole mess with the CPU VRM hardware flaws being made apparent by the poor power management profile shipped at release with the 2018 i9 MBP I’ve been more weary of the hardware design of MacBooks. That’s before I account for losing all USB-A ports, losing the SD card slot (‽), losing reliability and tactility of the keyboard, and losing the ESC key to the touchbar; if I compare the 2018 MBP to my current 2015.
       
      Given these flaws, I have been researching the performance situation comparing the 2018 MBP to the X1 Extreme, XPS 15 9570, and the Razer Blade 15 2018.  These are essentially the only options for a road warrior that needs a high quality panel and the best CPU and GPU that can be crammed into around 4lbs (1.8kg).  
      I used to use a ThinkPad T42p and loved it when it was new. So fast forward to now and the release of the ThinkPad X1 Extreme. It’s a truly tempting machine for an artist, given that the 4K UHD version offers just about the best color gamut available on any laptop panel. I get back the USB-A ports, get one of the fastest SD slots on any laptop, and get one of the best laptop keyboards on the market. That’s before even considering power management and modularity. I’ve been dabbling in learning Machine Learning, so a system with an nVidia GPU (CUDA) is a bonus on that front as well.
       
      For me the best color reproduction on a high resolution display panel was most important. The X1 Extreme has that, so I’ve ordered one. I got it with the fastest i7, base SSD and memory, and have separately purchased two 1TB Samsung 970 Pro M.2 SSDs and 2x16GB DDR4-3200MHz memory (just in case it’s possible to overclock the memory on the X1 Extreme). I got the system for $2,100 from Lenovo USA, and the SSDs ($390 x 2) and memory ($330) from Amazon US for a total of ~$3200.  These are easy to install on the X1 Extreme as the bottom cover is easily removed to reveal the M.2 and SODIMM slots. To compare, the 2018 MBP with the fastest i7, 32GB memory, and 2TB SSD is $4400. So I can save $1200 and get a faster system (on all counts) with a better panel and better connectivity by going with the X1 Extreme.
       
      The only thing I’m compromising is losing the big beautiful haptic touchpad and a bit more refined hardware aesthetic. Though, to be honest, I’ve kept a big thick dual-layer Tech21 case on my 2015 MBP. So I’ll actually be going down in volume and weight by moving to the more rugged ThinkPad. I think I can live without the touchpad.

      Oh, by the way, the 4K UHD panel of the X1 Extreme has touch and decent pen support! Another bonus vs. the MacBook. Though I keep a 12.9” iPad Pro around for my pen work and can’t imagine using a laptop similarly. It’s still nice to have a laptop screen actually respond when I go poke at it accidentally after switching back and forth between laptop and iPad.
       
       
      TOPIC
       
       
      So I want macOS with proper discrete GPU support on a 2018 MacBook class laptop.  That’s not possible on a pure Hackintosh as things stand, but via a macOS virtual machine it looks like it could work with what looks like some relatively bleeding edge support of PCIe UEFI passthrough.

      People have been doing this on Linux hosts to Windows VMs with some great success recently: https://gist.github.com/Misairu-G/616f7b2756c488148b7309addc940b28
      And it looks like that’s coming for macOS VMs as well: https://github.com/kholia/OSX-KVM/blob/a4fb2fd5aae871bdbc371b0cd31d4d8129d0f9ac/UEFI/README.md

      The X1 Extreme, XPS 15 9570, and Razer Blade 15 (2018) are essentially direct competition to the 2018 15” MBP. I would really like to see these three systems get some nicely fleshed out guides for getting maxed out compatibility and performance in macOS running in a VM for these systems. When I get my X1 Extreme I’ll start working on it for that one. I will post updates here. I hope to inspire others with the other two systems (or looking to get them) to do similarly.
       
       
      15” MACBOOK CLASS LAPTOP COMPARISON
       
      I chose the X1 Extreme largely because of the excellent 4K UHD HDR panel (100% of 2D AdobeRGB and 85.5% of 3D AdobeRGB, basically unparalleled), good mix of thermal performance and noise management, and overall ruggedness and connectivity.  If I were a gamer I would go with the Razer 15, but the fast low-gamut 1080p panel just doesn’t work for my purposes. If I were most concerned with aesthetics or battery life (97Wh battery for it vs 80Wh for X1E) I would go with the XPS 15.
       
      I am aware that the second 2018 refresh of the MBP is coming ~Nov 14, with the new AMD Radeon Pro Vega 16 and Vega 20 GPUs, and it looks like the latter might offer up to a 60% performance boost over the Radeon 560X. Maybe it has even given Apple enough time to update the CPU VRM along the way. This could make the performance picture more comparable for the 1050 Ti based X1E and XPS 15. I believe the 1070 Ti based Razer 15 will still win out though.
       
      Still, if you compare the fan and heat pipe solution put into the X1E vs the MBP the MBP just looks wimpy in comparison. MBP has smaller fans, less venting, and only one (smaller, thinner) heatpipe. It’s also more difficult to access if you want to put a better thermal paste or liquid metal on it.  Put simply, the thermal hardware on the MBP is basically the same design for the last 3 years and it can’t keep up with the hex-core processors. So even with the Volta 20 GPU making the MBP competitive again on the graphics end, the MBP will still be falling short on the CPU performance plane. This is before we even look at tuning options.
       
      Getting into tuning, it’s possible to improve thermal performance of all the laptops in this class by around 15-20% by using either a best in class thermal paste like Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or (if you’re willing to deal with all the caveats that come with using a conductive fluid that permeates other metals) a liquid metal interface like Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. The liquid metal gives you the best possible conducting interface, and the paste is more forgiving and easier to apply.  Further, it is often possible to stably undervolt the Coffee Lake i7/i9 available in this class of systems to further improve performance, thermals, and power consumption (generally another 10+%).
       
      Apple has deliberately made it impossible to undervolt the CPU on the MBP! This has been true since the first Skylake CPUs a few years ago. You used to be able to use a program called Volta to undervolt your CPU on macOS. This is a huge peeve for me and, combined with the general power and thermal underdevelopment, is one of the main reasons I want to get a competitor’s hardware. As a primer, the default voltage of modern CPUs is typically set conservatively high for the sake of production efficiency.  With the current generation Coffee Lake CPUs it is commonly possible to set the CPU voltage about 100 to 150mv lower safely.  This allows the CPU to run cooler and consume less power. For laptops which are thermally limited (basically everything in this new 6-core 14nm era), this also translates into better performance. It’s a tweak that actually improves reliability of your CPU. So it’s just stupid that Apple has deliberately made this impossible. Shame on them, someone else take my money.
       
      Wrapping up, my biggest quibbles with the X1E (before actually getting it) are that the 4K panel’s responsiveness is about the slowest I’ve seen on a modern panel, and it’s just really not suitable for gaming. There’s also what I consider an annoyingly high level of backlight corner bleed that I’m sure will be distracting during blackboxed video viewing. Hopefully these two issues will be fixed in next year’s iteration.

      This was mitigated with software that works around the poor hardware design, but the system would still ultimately perform better if the CPU VRM were redesigned. Non Mac systems with the similar CPUs don’t have this issue and get better sustained performance.

      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  selezionate OsxAptioFixDrv-64
                             *  :Se nel vostro sistema è presente una scheda grafica (discreta) della serie 9xx nVidia selezionate OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 al posto di  OsxAptioFixDrv-64 *
      ** OsxAptioFix2Drv :E' necessario per poter impostare CsrActiveConfig= 0x3 **
      ***OsxAptioFix3Drv oppure AptioMemory --> (consigliato) devono essere usati su hardware Skylake o successivi perché permettono alla nvram di lavorare correttamente
           (mi raccomando o uno o l'altro)
      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      Immagine 
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
      le info le trovate a questo post

      RehabMan has been hard at work and has created a much better, more reliable method for both current and possibly future OS X installs. His new method, named the "hotpatch" method is far superior to our old ones and should rightfully take its place. Following is a direct link to his detailed and extensive guide to assist both current and future users with their adventures in OS X. Should you find success using his method, please remember to say THANKS for his work and to possibly add to his growing repository to hopefully assist future users in their own success stories. If you are looking to try on the very bleeding edge, then this is where you want to be.
