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 problem :)

 

Do you have a T410?

 

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 :)

 

Thank you anyways. :)

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.

      Hi All,
       
      I'm trying to install Catalina via Clover, however, it hangs on ACPI errors. I've managed to reduce this from 6 to 4, but there's still some outstanding. 
       
      I'm thinking this may require DSDT patching to get by, but on the below information, how to do I gauge what I need to locate, and change values to?

      I've been lucky with past machines, rarely required a DSDT edit. The EC patch for Catalina has been applied.

      Model - Lenovo A540
      CPU - Intel® Core® i5-4258U (2.9 GHz)
      Chipset - Haswell
      Boot - UEFI Clover

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac.
       
      Features:
      - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process.
      - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers).
      - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (10+gb if you use catalina or newer versions, if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly).
      - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too.
      - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal.
      - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code.
      - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk.
      - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you.
      - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool.
      - Autaomated Open Core and clover EFI folder isntaller
      - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update.
       
      Features that are planned for future versions:
      - Support for other languages, at least Italian.
       
      # Requirements:
      - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer).
      - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer.
      - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

      Ciao ragazzi,
       
      ho provato ad eseguire l'installer di Yosemite su un
      Asrock H110 BTC+
      Intel G3900 (con FakeCPUID 0x0306A0 e flag -xcpm)
      GeForce 710
       
      ma dopo aver raggiunto lo step di "bluetooth transport" mi dà il simbolo del divieto d'accesso.. Cosa sbaglio?

      Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. Highly recommend using DW1560 wifi card, killer wifi isn't supported. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I take no credit for. I am only responsible for minor changes in files and plists, as well as placement and instructions throughout the guide (as well as the work used from previous projects). Many files and ideas are sourced from @maz-1, @syscl, and my previous guides Granted, many files are similar or the same but there is significantly less of them and/or they are predeployed into spots where they will work just as well, even if not as efficient on bootup. Esentially, this guide is designed to provide a perfectly working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without optimization (because often they can break things). Most patches on the main plist use patches implemented by him as well. ****This guide does work excellently however and will provide you with a near perfect setup for Catalina for your XPS 9350, and is currently my daily driver as I struggled using the referenced users files as well.
      Styling
      This guide is designed to be literally as thorough as possible to appeal to those who really don't understand many of the things in @maz-1's guide or some of the other users as they assume you would already understand this information. It does not cover complex topics like undervolting etc etc Notes
      Never tested USB C except for charging, works great no issues with sleep, wakeup. power management is defaulted as I found with @maz-1 it had issues when on battery switching from AC USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue) Haven't implemented a Bluetooth solution into this yet, as I don't really use it -- will be added ASAP (I believe KILLER WIFI will NOT work, must use one of the supported chipsets (DW1560 is excellent) BIOS Setup
      Set all SATA operation as AHCI Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States Enable UEFI Booting Recommended: Clean Install (Preinstall steps)
      Format a USB (16GB) as Journaled and then proceed to download the latest Catalina Installer Patcher Application Download the latest Catalina installer from within the Patcher App, and select to download a new copy and install to your USB device Download the clover configurator application and mount the EFI of the USB partition, then copy the contents of the Files linked above to the EFI Folder within the EFI partition. ** This is because the App Store installers will often not download a full installer, just an truncated version that downloads the installer files from the interent while installing. Thus, they're not bootable from a USB as they're not complete. That is why you should use this method to make sure the installer is usable for bootable media.
      Install Steps
      Simply use F12 to boot from the USB device, and select the USB Device and then boot from the Install mac OS partition. I have defaulted the installer to boot into verbose mode so I can easily see the errors you guys are seeing if you encounter them. If everything goes well, you can disable these from the boot arguments selection of Clover Configurator Boot into the USB Device, and follow the steps to format your SSD from the installer to install Mac OS Catalina. NOTE THE TRACKPAD WILL NOT FUNCTION AT THIS POINT, BUT THE TOUCHSCREEN WILL. This is caused by the way the installer handles Kext loading but because the touchscreen is being loaded via usb and the keyboard in a different method (which I can explain in detail if you'd like, the install will be possible. Do not be alarmed if the installer takes a long time to boot into, this is expected Once you have done this step, use F12 to select the USB and boot into the installer from the SSD in the options menu. (you cannot boot natively yet as the EFI isn't copied into the SSD yet. Setup computer as normal, touchpad, brightness, etc, should all be functioning at this point. Same with wifi. Then, you should using Clover configurator copy the contents of the USB EFI into the EFI folder of your SSD EFI partition (in the folder) Now we will add this as a native boot option. Setup computer as normal, touchpad, brightness, etc, should all be functioning at this point. Same with wifi. Then, you should using Clover configurator copy the contents of the USB EFI into the EFI folder of your SSD EFI partition (in the folder) Now will we add this as a boot entry so you can always boot from this natively without the USB. Boot Entry Setup
      Boot into the BIOS of the computer, then navigate to the Boot setup (or entries (not sure what it is called exactly, but it will be a list of the options your computer selects to boot) Click add new, and make sure the USB isn't plugged in. Select the only option that is avaiable, and in FS0 navigate to Boot/BOOTx64. Add this as an entry, then select this as whatever priority you would like. Credits

      Using Clover Configuator generate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of documentation, just don't open these apps until you've done this properly. Finished!
