Hi all,


I've had partial success with installing Mavericks onto my Lenovo Thinkpad T60p. However I've run into a few roadblocks for which I've been combing the web for solutions. I've found a few guides that could work but they are all 3-6 years old and any kext downloads are expired or gone. I'm posting out of desperation and semi-noobness in hopes that someone can help me and anyone else working with the same notebook. Here's a screenshot of my Device list from DPCI Manager. 


I know I need a new Wifi Card, I think I can manage to get the sound working, but the real trouble is that ATI Mobility FireGL V5250 Graphics. The computer is really laggy and the refresh rates are horrible. If I'm not mistaken I need to fully enable the Graphics. If anyone can lend a hand it would be AMAZING! Thanks in advance.

Hi Dwors,


once I owned a T60p (14", 1440x1050, FireGL V5250) and had Lion beautifully roaring...


You will need a modded bios in order to change WiFi card because Lenovo withelisted them. Try e.g. http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-ThinkPad-t60

The FireGL V5250 is basicly a Radeon X1700, so you can use kexts for this model (just add device/vendor id to kexts plist). To get display fully working (changing screen resolution, wake up, back light etc) I had the mess with EDID - maybe auomatic detection is better now.

If there are ghosting windows then there is a problem with the syncing between the cpu cores - I fixed it with VoodooTSC.kext.


Good luck!

Here are kexts I use for FireGL 5250. All is perfect. Try them, if it would not work for you, send me your ATIRadeonX1000.kext and I would try to hex it.

I am sending you three kexts, be carefull not to install all of them at once!

First of all isntall ATIinject.kext and ATINDRV.kext, reboot and install ATIRadeonX1000.kext

All works perfectly on Leopard!

I'm running a T60p with 10.6.8 and ATI FireGL V5250, 64 Bit kernel, stock kexts (for video)

It was a mess to get it up and running, and sometimes (5-10%) the video isn't detected (wrong EDID pickup)


@Sentabrina: Lion and Mavericks are different beasts, the trick with the old Leopard drivers worked AFAIK till version 10.6.6

after that something changed (probably the OpenGL framework). ATINDRV comes from Leopard 10.5.


Will someday have a try with ATY_Init.kext 64 Bit, will report...

      Let's say: I'm trying to create a Bootable Hackintosh USB for Mac OS High Sierra [Latest Stable Version], and I'm using a Virtual Machine [with Mac OS High Sierra] on my Windows 10.
      Specific Questions:
      What BIOS Settings should I change for - LENOVO Motherboard BIOS? What should I keep in mind when using a Virtual Machine [MacOS] for the Bootable USB Creation Process? Should I use Clover EFI Bootloader or Clover Configurator, or Both? What settings should I change change in those? Does it matter which version(s) of Clover Sofwares I use? Will they support USB Creation for ALL versions of MAC Operating Systems? [Or do they only support some versions of Mac OS?]  
      Thanks in Advance for your help!

      I have VoodooPS2 kext installed. Tried to google the solution but only found changing MouseMultipliers which won't help - I changed all of them, tried to set around 3x times bigger values, rebuild kext cache, replaced the ones in EFI, rebooted but nothing changed, TrackPoint is still slow. Is there any other way to do it? I'm also attaching my problem_reporting files.

      I start this topic to make my Lenovo Thinkpad W540 usable with High Sierra
      I followed many guides but this one started by @tluck made me most progress: 
      My setup as in signature
      I will update first post with statuses of working features:
      Nvidia Quadro - disabled
      Intel HD 4600 - working @ 1920x1080 and 1,5GB RAM (had to set ig-plaform-id as Haswell desktop, mobile do not work)
      using intelGraphicsFixUp.kext
      internal speakers and mic works with AppleACL.kext and profile 28

      i boot MacOS from USB drive and it works, mouse and pendrive also works
      USB power not work yet, so USB WiFi dongle and iPhone connection not work (no power @ USB)
      IOReq finds only USB 3.0 controller not USB 2.0 even though I have 2 ports USB 3.0 and 2 ports USB 2.0
      Integrated Camera:
      recognised in IOReq but not working now (probably due to USB)
      as USB but works without problem

      works with intelMausiEthernet.kext

      internal is PS2 so VoodooPS2Controller.kext is needed - some mappings I would like to have different but works

      works with VoodooPS2Controller.kext from @tluck topic
      One time works mostly not - debugging in progress
      Batery Status:
      not working
      Integrated WiFi:
      intel -  not working
      Sleep / Hibernate:
      not working
      not working
      Other found issues:
      besides that graphics works @ 1920x1080 and have a lots of ram window shadows (especially dock shadow) looks bad
      External VGA:
      not tested yet
      External Mini Display Port / Thunderbolt:
      not tested yet
      I will post my clover / debug config later

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Release v2018.06.05 on GitHub Updated to Clover r4513 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.
