I have a Lenovo Z510-b Laptop which I wanted to Hackintosh.this is my first one so I'm a newbie and don't kjow much.
I did the process using an easy guide on Hackintosh zone which all I needed to do was to restore a pre maid installer on a usb disk and then boot ETC.
After installation, I have faced several issues which I have managed to fix some of them gradually, but there are some I couldn't make it work:
first of all lets talk about my main issue. The macOS only recognizes 4MB of my igpu and I can't make any difference. ( ill say what I have done for it so far)
and for my Nvidia graphic I think it won't go so well ( after screwing my laptop up for 3 times) because I only have discrete or igpu option in my bios. ( discrete AFA I heard won't work)
so im mainly hoping for my igpu.
Things I have done for igpu:
intelGraphicsFixup.kext.kext using M u L Ti Be a St
Have done clover settings:
in devices tab,IntelGfx: 0x4128086
in Graphics tab, ig-platform-id: 0x0a260006 ( inject EDID and inject Intel checked)
have checked fix intelgfx in api tab under fixes section
* I even set the VRAM box in graphics tab to like 64 or 256 to see if it changes anything although I don't really know what is that for lol*
PS: my bios doesn't have any option to set Vram like some guides suggest.
this should be a minor issue. I do have the audio working using "M u L Ti Be_a St "and re booting after installing "100/200/300 series Audio Support" under "Realtek ALCxxx" section under audio tab under drivers section. but when I restart again, it just goes off!
the installation suggests "Adds Rename HDAS to HDEF patch to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist." but I had( and still have) this patch in my acpi section! so I don't know what is the deal there; but I think its minor.
Sorry for long text. I really hope you could help me out. I will now send you the information you need about my laptop specs and will attach my problem reporting files which I made using the script rehab man has suggested. NOTE : I get some warnings and errors during boot (verbous) although it boots perfectly, but I don't know if those are included in my problem reporting file or not, or whether it is important at all or not.but I haven't seen any errors there relating to graphics. ( I might be wrong tho).
Inel Core i7 4702MQ
Intel HD 4600
Nvidia Geforce GT740M
Realtek Audio ( I thing its 230)
Intel Wi-fi ( obviously couldn't make it work)
I post here today with a problem that I cannot seem to get around. I've been an occasional "Hacintosher" for a few years but this time I think it's out of my hands.
This is my build :
i7 7700k 4,2Ghz
GTX 1080 ti
I followed all the steps in different guides here and there. I first had to install Sierra without the GTX inside otherwise I didn't get any display.
I then installed the drivers, put the card in and it was working. Everything is working : Audio, Ethernet etc... but I only get 640p with the GPU on my 4K display with DP, with HMDI it doesn't even work. So right now it's on a TV...
Then I have two other problems.
First, I cannot get a "clean" install of Sierra, every time I boot I need to keep the USB stick with the installer and first boot from it.
Second, before I put the GTX, I wanted for the Integrated Graphics to work, because actually, I would like to keep the GTX only for rendering. But now that it's inside, neither my display nor my TV can get a signal from the MOBO while connected in HDMI or DP.
Attached is my clover folder, if any of you guys have solutions for my problems it would be extremely appreciated !
I installed Yosemite-Zone successfully into my Laptop without custom arguments, or kernel. Just the Clover's default args.
So I restarted, and choose to boot OSX (through Clover) it restart without errors, same story with -v, -x, "no kext inject" and "ignore cache" (or something like that) always through Clover configuration menù. IDK if it has been removed but I never saw the Darwin Boot Loader not even in the installation. (I copied the Extra folder and the kernel from the Installation USB key to the Installed OSX)
APU: AMD A6-4455M
GFX: AMD Radeon HD 7500g
MSB: Acer Havok V5-551 (UEFI Mode Enabled)
Since my other post was vague and stopped getting responses, I will start threads based on each issue to see if that helps.
So since I installed Yosemite and ran Vietnam with the Chameleon bootloader, almost everything is working except audio (i ordered a usb audio interface to get around this for now), and the biggest mystery for me is the Ethernet.
Upon installation I selected the appropriate AppleIntelE1000e kext from Vietnam but my ethernet didn't work. I repaired permissions and kext cache using kext utility and then re-installed the AppleIntelE1000e kext from Vietnam. Restarted and internet worked.
Shutdown my machine for the night and came back the next day to another issue with screens and desktops, and ethernet mysteriously stopped working again. I didn't think much of it and figured with all my tinkering with Model Identifiers and screen options I must have somehow messed up the Ethernet.
- I repaired permissions and kext cache using kext utility and then re-installed the AppleIntelE1000e kext from Vietnam. Restarted and internet worked again.
I kept my computer on for a while, Restarted a bunch of times and never had a problem.
Turned off my computer again for the night, came back this morning to NO ETHERNET again. The kext is still in the S/L/E folder but nothing shows up under DPCI manager for ethernet.
What could be happening here? Any info I can provide that will be helpful, lmk.
Edit: I just restarted my computer while typing this and now ethernet is working again. I didn't repair or install anything, just simply restarted. Something must be happening on a shutdown overnight.
Double Edit: I just confirmed this behavior by shutting down and waiting 2 minutes. Powered back up and had no ethernet. Restarted from that point and ethernet works.

I can't get my internal wifi working which is a Intel Centrino advanced -n 6235.
I have seen everywhere that it will never work with Mac OS.
That fine since I have an external nano USB 150n wifi adapter which works.
I need help because I don't know how to get the fn keys and the display and battery working
Thank you for your help.
I only need help to get the battery to be shown in the status bar now.
