10.6.8 combo update problems on Lenovo Z360

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I'm new here and on the "Hackintosh world" and I'm having some problems with my Hackintosh.

 

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 with an Intel Core i3 processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000. The thing is that I installed Mac OS X 10.6.3 with the retail DVD and it worked fine, but the screen didn't get its full resolution (1366x768) and the Wi-Fi didn't worked, but I solved the Wi-Fi problem with an external USB adapter. Everything was great until I update to 10.6.8. I followed every step that an online guide says, but when I rebooted my laptop the Apple boot logo stayed there "forever". I waited about 40 minutes and nothing. Then I did some research and booted it in the safe mode (-x) and the keyboard and mouse didn't work, the screen got totally frozen on the user login screen, just the cursor moved. Then I reinstalled the system again a lot of times and always the same "error" was showed on the screen when I booted typing -v: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. I did a lot of research, but everything I tried didn't worked, so now I'm asking help to you guys.

 

If you need more information about the issue or about my laptop, just ask.

 

Again, I'm new, so if you could explain on a detailed way it would be great :)

Hello and welcome!

 

Which way are you trying to install? I' suggest a usb key with Chameleon on it and NullCPUPowermangement and FakeSMC.kext in /Extra/Extensions.

 

Generally speaking: Ivybridge processors aren't supported by Snow Leopard. I'd try to upgrade to 10.6.6 (or above) to get access to the AppStore and buy Mountain Lion or Mavericks to create an installer of the newer os version with myHack.

 

Best regards

Hello,

 

I'm installing the update on the normal way, as I don't need any kexts (everything is working fine, besides the video) or bootloader (I prefer stay with i-Boot) from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] .

 

Could you please tell me where I can find this files to try again?

 

If it don't work, where can I find the update file for 10.6.6?

 

Thanks.

Sorry, but if you want to get support for tonymac-tools, you should go to his website/forum --> insanelymac doesn't support him or his tools, see: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/

 

You can get the 10.6.6 update directly from Apple --> http://support.apple.com/kb/dl1349

 

After the update is install DON'T reboot. Install a SleepEnabler.kext suited for 10.6.6 (or 10.6.8 if updating to the newer version) via kext utility (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/140647-latest-kext-utility-mavericks-super-speed-edition/ )

Well, I tried to search at their forum but I didn't find anything, that's why I am looking for help here.

 

I'll try the update 10.6.6. Just one more thing: it's just download the update and run it or I should do something else?

Argh, I edited my last post too slow...

 

Btw: i3-350M doesn't have a HD4000, it features Intel HD Graphics (also called GMA5700MHD) ;-) And Arrandale is supported by Snow Leopard (the HD4000 indicated a much newer Ivybridge cpu)

No problem...

 

Wait, what? Oh, probably the website where I took these informations from was wrong, because my laptop does have Intel HD Graphics 4000...

 

Anyway, thank you so much! I'll try what you said. When I get time, I'll tell the result :)

So, I did what you said and it didn't work. When the instalion finished, a "kernel panic" happened so was unable to install the kext you said. So I installed the kext first then I installed the update, but the same thing happened. When I rebooted on verbose mode, this happened:

Do you know another thing that could work on my problem?

So, I solved my problem.

 

To the people who are having the same issue as me, here's the solution that worked for me:

Delete all the .kexts related do any graphics card on /System/Extensions. This includes .kexts which has "Intel", "ATI" or "GeForce" on its name.
