Recommended Posts

Installation Guide :

Hey there and welcome to the ultimate guide how to install Yosemite (10.10) or El Capitan (10.11) on the Lenovo ThinkPad "T410".

Before you begin make sure that you are owning the NVIDIA model. (NVS 3100m 256mb / NVS 3100m 512mb)

This guide may work for other models like T510, T410s or the T410 with Intel HD but theres no support for them.

 

NO ONE IN THIS FORUM (INCLUDING ME) IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS (DATA, MATERIAL, EQUIPMENT…) OCCURRED TO YOU, YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE RESPONSIBLE, AND BY FOLLOWING THESE INSTRUCTIONS YOU AGREE TO TAKE ALL THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES. THIS INSTALLATION ISN'T WITHOUT RISKS SO TAKE ALL THE PRECAUTIONS BEFORE DOING ANY FOOLISH ACTION, BACKUP YOUR DATA! AND FEED YOUR CAT!

Photos here are only examples, use your brain!

 

First of all you should know the basics of hackintoshing. (GIYF)

 

You will need Windows on your T410 for the WIFI patch and a working Mac / Hackintosh (running 10.6.8+) to prepare the installation media.

Also a 8GB+ USB drive.

 

El Capitan (10.11):

 

  • Download all needed resources for the work.
  • Install Whitelisted BIOS for installing a supported WIFI card. (Skip this step if you don't want to use WIFI)
    • Install original BIOS from the "Original Bios" folder.
    • Install moded BIOS from the "Moded Bios" folder.
      • Run WinPhlash32/64 (Depending on your system)
      • Hit the Browse button at the "Specify BIOS" Section and open up the 01BF000_WL.ROM file
      • After that hit advanced settings and make the settings look like this :
    • [ ] Verify BIOS part number

      [ ] Flash only if BIOS version is different

      [ ] Flash only if BIOS version is newer

      [ ] Verify BIOS image size

      [ ] Verify BIOS checksum

      [ ] Zero block before erasing

      [x] Verify block after programming

      [x] Disable Axx swaping automatic detection (if present)

      [ ] Clear CMOS Checksum

      • Go to the DMI tab and select "Update the BIOS and not the DMI"
      • Close the Window and press "FLASH BIOS"
  • Prepare the Vanilla USB
    • Make sure that your El Capitan Install program is at /Applications
    • Format your target USB device using Disk Utility and name it "Install"
    • Use the script below to "copy" the Installer over to your USB
    • sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction
    • Format your USB's EFI partition to FAT32 using the code below (Remember to replace "x" by your device's digit)
    • sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/rdiskXs1
    • Now open up the Clover Installer and set it up like this (Keep in mind that you have to select your USB as installation directory)
    • After that extract both of your zips called "T410_Extensions.zip" and "T410_Clover_Config_EC.zip"
    • Move the content of the "T410_Extensions" to "/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11/" of your USB drive. (Skip AppleHDA.kext)
    • Move the file called "DSDT.aml" from the "T410_Clover_Config_EC" folder to "/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched" of your USB drive
    • Move the file called "config.plist" from the "T410_Clover_Config_EC" folder to "/EFI/CLOVER/" --- replace if needed
  • Set up your BIOS settings.
    • Set all to default
    • Than set Security → Security Chip : Disabled[/size]
    • After that set Security [/size]→ Memory Protection [/size]→ Execution Prevention : Enabled[/size]
    • Config [/size]→ Serial ATA [/size]→ SATA Controller Mode : AHCI[/size]
  • Boot up your USB drive
    • Plug in your USB drive and power on your ThinkPad
    • Press "F12" and select the USB drive
    • When you see the Clover installation screen select your USB drive and hit the enter key to proceed
    • Press "Enter" and wait till you get into the installer (If you are stuck at something eg. PCIRootUDI=1 make a photo and post it here)
    • Follow the Instructions till you get into the select install drive windows
    • Than open up Disk Utility and select your HDD
    • Select the Erase tab and select your the HDD's name eg. Mac HDD and select Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    • Press erase button ,wich is located right corner of the window, and close the program
    • Select your HDD and click install.
    • After your PC has rebooted boot the Install USB again, because OSX has a bug that it does a "pseudoinstall" first
    • The installation should start automatically and wait till it ends
  • Boot up your El Capitan install and fix it up
    • Plug in your USB drive and select your HDD instead of the installer and type the boot flags from above and hit "Enter"
    • If it boots : You can call yourself a happy person ;)
    • Config your Hackintosh and install Clover to your HDD / SSD using the steps of part 3
    • After that open up Kext Utility and drag the the AppleHDA.kext from the "T410_Extensions.zip" onto its window.
    • Enter passwd and wait
    • Reboot your system and have fun :)
  • Don't forget to give me a thumbs up :D
What's Working:
  • Full QE/CI
  • Keyboard, trackpad and trackball (multitouch three finger swipe)
  • Audio / Mic
  • DisplayPort
  • Wifi- (With whitelisted BIOS and replacement card)
  • AirDrop - (Mac to Mac tested, Mac to iOS not tested)
  • Webcam
  • Shut down
  • Brightness control (via. settings)
  • Battery Indicator (Created new DSDT and with RHM's ACPIBatteryManager.kext wich shows serial)
  • App Store - (sometimes its required to buy something in itunes to authenticate the computer)
  • VGA Out - (Mirroring and extended Desktop)
What's partly working:
  • iMessage / FT - (NVRAM fix is outdated | You will need a real Mac serial and Clover)
  • Sleep and Wake with Lid - (USB doesn't work after sleep & Moon is shining)
What's not tested / not working:
  • SD Card
  • WWANl

Are you sure about "Full QE/CI"?

 

Menu bar in your snapshot is not transparent.

 

 

 

  • (Snow Leopard/Lion) there's no information regarding these aspect in System Profiler. You can verify the menu bar: if it is transparent you can be almost sure that QE/CI are active (otherwise the menu bar is solid and whiteish). Also, if you can open DVD Player QE/CI works.
  • (All versions of OS X) you can add a widget in the Dashboard: if there is a "ripple effect" then QE/CI is enabled; you can open Chess, move a figure, and if it displays an animation, QE/CI is enabled.

No. I have a Acer 4741G laptop.  

 

Recently, I am bothering not sure QE / CI is enable or not in this laptop (Yosemite 10.10.2).

 

Thanks for your guide, I learned something.

Thanks very much for the guide. 

With this I got my first Hackintosh up and running .  :)

 

The only problem I have left is VGA. Somehow I got it working once, but now its not working / detecting anymore. I am using the Nvidia Drivers by the way. Do you now what the corresponding kext or DSDT change is and how I would activate that?

 

Kind regards,

Koogle

If you connect vga you have to press alt key / win key and detect in monitor settings

Did you use my DSDT? 

If you don't use it :  :wallbash:

 

If you use it : https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-acpi-battery-driver/downloads/RehabMan-Battery-2015-0123.zip  ---

You have to install this kext and you're good to go :)

Yes, theres a X.

 

Do i have to open the patch with MaciASL? Because theres no T410 in the zip.

Woudl be really nice if that would work.

Also the Webdriver for Nvidia doesnt work because the mac doenst boot with the driver

activated, but it works fine with the apple driver so i will just keep that.

      Extras
       
      - FullHD 1920x1080 display upgrade: 
      Replaced with AU Optronics B140HAN01.1 30pin eDP (B140HAN01.2 and B140HAN01.3 also compatible).
      Apparently same screen as Dell Latitude E6440, E7440, Lenovo Ideapad U430 and E129.
       
      - CPU upgrade:
      Replaced the stock Intel Core i5 4300M 2.6Ghz (3.3Ghz turbo) 6M cache with Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4Ghz (3.4Ghz turbo) 6MB.
      I initially had problems with overheating. The processor ran at full load above 90 degrees.
      After using a quality thermal paste I can work between 70 and 80 degrees.
      Acceptable taking into consideration that the new processor has 47TDP versus 37TDP which is recommended.
      I also had no problem consuming the battery while charging. The original 65W source seems to have figured out.
       
      - Touchpad upgrade:
      Replaced the stock with T460 touchpad.
      This is serious: you have to do it! It should be stock. Touchpad with precision and absurd quality!
      Just do it!
       
      - RAM upgrade:
      No mistery here. Just upgade.
       
       
      Todo
       
      - Make DP audio work.
      - Make Card Reader work.
      - Upgrade CPU to i7-4712MQ (Ordered. It's on the way) Done, but received i7-4700MQ (47w TDP, with good paste I have no overheating)
      - Replace touchpad with T460 model (Ordered. It's on the way) Done. Sensitivity and perception of quality much better. I recommend 100%!
      - Sierra Gobi5000 4G LTE modem EM7355 (Ordered. It's on the way. I hope works. ) Done, but not work. Recognize but not connect. I already gave up...
      - Upgrade to 16GB RAM Done

      Make things works

      Will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop.
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
                    If you have modded BIOS with Advanced Menu and enabled 128MB DRAM-prealloc use 128MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
                    If no, then use 32MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
      - Put SSDT-L440.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.3.2.0)

      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week.
      In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you.
      I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.9.
      - Download the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0505.
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.2.
       
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the config.plist inside your destination disk EFI parittion with config.plist inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.
       
      Last step
       
      Copy all Kexts from flash drive to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.3
       
      - Updated with success;
      - Everything works perfectly after reboot;
       

       
       

       
      And last but not least

      Introduction
      The H370 chipset powers 8th generation Intel Core-i CPUs. Even though the name H370 rings comparable to Z370, the H370 is based on newer silicon. This it also requires some new approaches compared to the Z370. An example would be on-die USB 3.1 and WiFi support.
       
      Since this guide is not a "hold-your-hand-every-step" guide, I assume you know:
      Clover installation and configuration How to create an install medium for MacOS Access and configure the BIOS Have heard of ACPI patching (I'm a newb at this myself)  
      What works
      Sleep (via DSDT edits and emulated NVRAM) On-board Audio (via AppleALC and native AppleHDA) Native power management (without any kext or patch) All USB ports (and only those present are active) iGPU for both acceleration and display dGPU (I'm running an Nvidia GTX 1080)  
      Untested
      NIC --> I'm using WiFi only  
      What doesn't work
      Native NVRAM via AptioMemoryFix.efi DMVT Pre-alloc higher than 64MB (but not necessary)  
      Community additions
      User @Panzerschiffe added a helpful post, altering this guide for user with AMD cards and not needing on-board sound.
      He also runs Mojave, which I don't run yet.
       
       
      Changes to the guide:
      22.5.18: Added SSDT hot-patching to enable sleep, replacing DSDT static patching as an alternative.
      23.5.18: Add iMac18,1 as alternative SMBIOS config for those relying on the iGPU for output
      25.6.18: Added update info
      28.8.18: Small changes for clarity, changed info for afps loading & updated USB patch for 13.6
      04.10.18: Update to Mojave will come once Mojave is more mature
      02.12.18: Removed unnecessary patches, fakepciid and audio patch method & linked to AMD post & added whatevergreen.kext as replacement for previous GPU kexts
      02.03.19: Removed unnecessary fakeid and ig_platform_id injections, ACPI patches - this is all handled by whatevergreen & lilu. In testing is a Framebuffer patch, see this post.
      04.03.19: Added Germany keyboard layout and updated pre-patched DSDT.aml removed DSDT patching
       
       
      1. Installation
      This guide heavy inspired by the work of /u/corpnewt of /r/hackintosh and his (sorta) Vanilla guide
       
      1.1 Create the install media for MacOS
      Follow this, if you are using a Mac to start off with. If you are totally new to MacOS, then please check the basic guide Creation of an installer media in windows or linux
       
      1.2 Install Clover on the install media
      Using the Clover installer, ensure you are installing to the USB medium you are using for the installer.
      Chose the following options, leaving the others on default: 
       
      UEFI driver: AptioMemoryFix UEFI driver: ApfsDriverLoader UEFI booting only Install to ESP  
      You have to get your hands on an apfs.efi. A google search can help, or extracting it from the Installer package. Make sure you procure a version matching the MacOS version you are about to install. Place the apfs.efi in drivers64UEFI.
       
      1.2 Adjust the config.plist for the installer
      You can use the config.plist attached as a guideline, but take a look at it before and at least adjust the SMBIOS - otherwise it won't boot.
      Attention: The attached plist contains audio patches introduced by a post-install step. If you run into problems, you might remove those. It also contains a manual slide value, which should normally not be needed, but works fine for me. It is also tuned for usage with an Nvidia Pascal dGPU as main GPU.
       
      The config you create now should serve you nicely for install and running the system.
       
      Take care of adding the following basics:
      SMBIOS: iMac18,3 - You can generate a serial number via Clover Configurator. The creation of a proper SMBIOS is covered in many guides to good extend Note: If you aim at using the iGPU for output, a user reported that iMac18,1 works better - since iMac18,3 produces severe flicker. I'm now also testing 18,1 Look at the graphics section and adjust the injection for Intel to your situation  
      Fixes

      Patches

      Devices

      Graphics
      Important:
      Change 0x59120003 to 0x59120000 if you don't use a dGPU as your main display Driver and instead use the iGPU for output.
      Also note. SMBIOS iMac18,1 has been reported to work better in this configuration. But 18,3 works fine for me.

      Kernel and Kext patches
       
      1.3 kexts and friends
      Add the supplied SSDT-UAIC.aml to "patched" - it limits the injected USB Ports to the actual number and ports valid for this board.
       
      Required kexts on "Other":
      FakeSMC.kext Whatevergreen.kext Lilu.kext AppleALC.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext in case you're running Ethernet USBInjectAll.kext with the HCI-300-series-injector.kext --> These two should be installed to /L/E after install  
      We are leaving sound out at the moment, this is something for post-install.
       
      1.4 Check BIOS and install
      You should be ready for install. But before you reboot, please take a look at your BIOS and set it up accordingly (copied from the aforementioned guide and adapted):
      Load Optimized Defaults Disable VT-d setting If your system has Secure Boot Mode, disable it Enable CSM - This is sometimes needed to dual screens to work Set OS Type to Windows 8/10 or OtherOS - I have not seen a difference Turn off internal Serial and Parallel port Turn off Network stack for boot Turn off wake-on-lan (for now) Set XHCI Handoff to enabled Don't enable decode over 4G Depending on your GPU, set priority for boot Set internal GPU (iGPU) to enable - not auto or disabled Set DMVT pre-alloc min to 64MB and max to 128MB. For this selection to appear you might need to reboot after setting iGPU to enable Set USB legacy to enabled Activate XMP profile 1 f your Ram has it (mine doesn't and I added the timings manually) Set ERP to enable, disable platform power management (I need to do more research if this could be enabled)  
      I've attached my current BIOS config "hack2". You can place that on a fat32 drive (the EFI partition of your install USB drive might be an idea) and see if it loads. It's made for and with the F2 BIOS.
       
      The install itself should be like other MacOS Hackintosh installs with it several reboots and ensuring to select the correct boot device in Clover.
       
      2. Post-install
       
      2.1 Install clover on target
      This is a no-brainer, but install a fresh copy of Clover on your target medium.
       
      During install select again AptioMemoryFix but also additionally
      EmuVariableUefi-64.efi Install RC scripts on target volume because otherwise NVRAM doesn't seem to work
       
      After the install, copy
      config.plist contents of "Other" content of "patched" to your new clover install.
       
      2.2 Edit ACPI for slumber
      Choose one option, not both. The hot-patch is experimental, but for the moment it is stable.
       
      2.2.1 Edit DSDT
      No more need for manual DSDT patching. If you still do it, you might run into unstable sleep. SSDT hot-patching + sane clover.config edits are enough
       
      This is necessary only once on initial install and every time, you edit or upgrade the BIOS. The DSDT.aml attached to this post might work for your system or give you a file to compare to. Don't expect it to work for you, though.
      EDIT: Since moving from F2 BIOS to F12 I did not repatch and sleep is still somewhat reliable. But to be 100% sure, you can still follow these steps.
      I won't go into the details of DSDT extraction and patching. There are better guides (the linked guide is a rip-off of rehabman's guide from a different forum). Please follow such a guide to extract your ACPI data.
       
      Locate and disassemble the DSDT with the newest iasl binary you can put your hands on, then open it with MacIASL in its newest version you can find (Hint: Here is a good source) You can check if the version is new enough if MacIASL doesn't throw error upon compiling a freshly extracted DSDT.aml or DSDT.dst
       
      Add rehabmans repo (as per linked guide) and apply the following patches:
      Rename _DSM to _XDSM Fix _WAK Arg0 v2 USB3 _PRW 0x6D Skylake (instant wake) Find the CNVW device and remove the _PWR function there.
       
      Compile the DSDT and place it in "patched".
       
      2.2.2 Use SSDT hot-patching
      Instead of having to re-extract and re-patch the DSDT on every BIOS change or update, Hardware change one can also use ACPI hot-patching.
      It's a combination of config.plist patches and an SSDT, which is hot-patched into the ACPI (if I understand the process correctly)
       
      You need to add this SSDT-GPRW.aml to your Clover folder in the designated position at Clover/ACPI/patched You need to add this patch to your config.plist. It goes into the DSDT patch section  
      Note: This works for me, but the patch removes the _PRW method from all devices in the DSDT. This could have side-effects. So far, I have seen none. At the moment I'm also not applying any other patch, compared with the additional edits I made to the DSDT method before.
       
      2.3 Install kexts to system
      As mentioned in the install section, it's better to follow rehabman's instruction and install USBinjectAll.kext to /L/E:
      sudo cp -R Release/USBInjectAll.kext /Library/Extensions sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / 2.4 Enable onboard Audio - Install AppleALC kext
      Make sure your EFI partition is mounted and that you have a vanilla AppleHDA kext available. See below for a guide how to get a vanilla AppleHDA if needed
      Note: Our Audio codec is ALC887 and it's running with layout ID 1.
      Download the newest AppleALC kext from here and install it together with lilu.kext from here into your usual /clover/kexts/others location. Done. No scripts or config.plist patches necessary.
      Add layout ID 1 to config.plist, if it's not there yet:
      <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>ResetHDA</key> <true/> </dict> If you previously  installed any  audio patches, please follow this guide to "vanilla-ize" your install.
       
      2.5 Optional steps for Graphics
      If you have a dGPU, now it's the time to install its drivers and adjust the config.plist for it. The detaisl are specific to your GPU and thus of scope of this guide. Yet, my supplied config.plist is ready to be used with Nvidia Pascal cards and using the Nvidia web driver.
      Whatevergreen.kext helps with Intel iGPU and NVIDIA dGPU fixes.
       
      At the moment I'm also testing out a special bootflag: 'shikigva=12' to enable faster rendering in Final Cut Pro X. Without whatevergreen.kext and a shikigva bootflag, rendering in final cut seem very slow.
       
      2.5.1 Framebuffers
      If you're facing problems with output from your internal GPU, you can try the framebuffer patches listed by @BackwardMac:
       
      2.6 Install a proper keyboard layout
      You might not be using a fancy Apple branded keyboard. If you use a PC keyboard, you might be annoyed by the differing layout and usage of keys. As a German, you might find yourself quitting applications, since alt gr + Q won't add an @, but quit your current application. To fix this, you can simply install a different keyboard layout. Copy it to /Library/Keyboard Layouts/ and chose the layout in System Preferences, Keyboard in the section "Other". Deleting the previously selecting layout makes sure that only this one is used. Nice little trick.
       
      A keyboard layout for German keyboards is attached and works wonders
       
      3. Updating
      Updating inside 10.3.x/ 10.4.x point updates doesn't require much attention:
      Download the update from the AppStore as any Mac would do Allow the system to reboot Before booting MacOS with Clover, make sure to disable extra drivers for dGPUs which require non-native support. If using an Nvidia dGPU: Remove "nvda_drv=1"  from your boot arguments and disable Nvidia injection If using a non natively supported AMD card, do the same for AMD (I'm not using AMD, thus I cannot be specific) Boot into the newly created Install MacOS partition Repeat this process until the Install partition is gone Boot MacOS again, still following 3., and potentially install updated drivers Your Audio might require re-patching  
      4. ToDo
      Move away from static DSDT patching to SSDT hotpatching --> requires my work Native NVRAM --> requires developer work Audio without AppleHDA patching --> requires developer work
