Wanting Mavericks or Yosemite on ThinkPad T410

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 

 

I have recently got hold of a T410 laptop for christmas, of which is the Intel HD Graphics version. It has 8GB of RAM and is currently running Windows 7 and requires an old (disallowed to say what bootloader disc to be inside) in order to boot to an install of Snow Leopard I have made.

 

The first thing I did when I got my laptop was install Mavericks using the boot flag:

GraphicsEnabler=yes

However, I never really knew what to do after the install as it was my first time installing Mac successfully. What I mean by I didn't know what to do, is that it would simply not boot after install. 

 

I now know that there are a few Kexts scattered here and there throughout the forums, some contradicting others saying first generation HD Graphics are not supported, whilst others say they are and it has been very confusing.

 

A common error I get whenever booting any kind of installation or even my install of Snow Leopard (which runs fine) is that is says There is an error starting this computer, pausing 5 seconds. Not sure if this means anything,

 

As of now, I can not install Mavericks anymore, not even through the Niresh distro I used to begin with. 

 

Some of the time in the verbose mode, there is often an error saying that certain playlists are not found either which can also lead me to believe I need to add some kind of modified version or extra files.

 

One last thing I want to note is that I would like it if somebody could maybe compile me a zip or gather some useful resources such as Playlist files, kexts, and other things that may help me get Mavericks (or even Yosemite now) onto my T410. I have tried all installers, such as Yosemite (through transmac as a distro), I have tried Mavericks (Niresh Distro again), and I have even tried downloading a non-distro and installing it to USB through myHack on Snow Leapoard, and there has been no luck.

 

Thanks for reading this and I hope that maybe somebody can help me get a stable OSX on my Laptop.

 

Forgot to mention another confusion: 

 

I don't know how to inject kexts into the USB installer itself, and whether you should do it before or after installation of OSX.

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      CPU: Intel i5-8600K 3.6GHz hexacore (contains UHD 630 iGPU)
      CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim (no paste needed, and fan facing front)

      RAM: 1x 8GB CORSAIR Vengeance LPX C16 2666MHz (in first slot)
      GFX Card: Sapphire RX 580 NITRO+ SE
      SATA: used ports 0, 1, 3, 5 (HDD problems when connected to port 4)
      HDD: generic
      DVD Drive: generic
      PSU: EVGA 500W Semi Modular (but you should get 650W!)
      Case: CoolerMaster CM590 III
      Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
       
      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      - HDMI Audio not working
