[GUIDE] Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover

Recommended Posts

well maybe try removing SSDT-6x.aml and rerun.

 

Thanks, works :) I also had to remove SSDT-5x and 12.aml. BT now find devices!!!! :)

 
To understand it, the error obtained "AE_ALREADY_EXISTS" means that it is not necessary that SSDT??
 
 

Others problems here:

  1. When I use mini-displayport and wake from sleep display the display have refresh problems and I have reboot laptop to solve it. (test with 2 different monitors) 
  2. Also from sleep display, in some cases keyboard seems disabled and not responding... but if I press 2 or more times 'Fn' key then keyboard going on.

Thanks a lot

Hello guys! 

I'd like to report something odd happening: after updating two days ago, this morning my thinkpad turned off out of the blue with battery at around 60%; turning back on, the indicator was red and showing 100%.
After rebooting It seems ok, now I’m doing a recalibration cycle.
Any idea of what may be causing this? Since It was at 55-60% could it be about the double battery?

@buoncri95

- do you have the latest/update ACPIBatteryManager kext v1.81.3 ?

- this sounds like one of problems recently fixed.

Thank for your job to help me to resolve the problem in My Thinkpad T460.

My PC is SSD 256GB with i7-6600U,so that I have to include a SD Card to extend my disk spaces.
I am very lucky to found the driver of Realtek 522A PCIE SDReader of my T460 with a SDXC Speed in BBS.
I think you can include it into your jobs to help others.

Hi Tluck,

I just got T450S with HD5500 Graphics.

will those files posted here work with it? Or the differences between T450S and T460 are too great?

Strange problem on my side.

 

Sometimes, using it on battery, suddenly I get the screen with full brightness, and I see on the menu bar that it's like that I had plugged the pc to power. Few seconds later, it comes back like before.

 

Very strange no?

but ppl said one slot is soldered with 4gb in some model, so it can only be upgraded to 20gb at most 

 

In my T460 is not soldered...

Does anyone have DisplayPort working on the Lenovo T460? (I don't have it working, and the version of HDMI on T460 doesn't support 4K).

It was tough to get High Sierra on the T560 working again, but finally the upgrade succeeded.

 

I guess I didn't took care, that the files in the /L/E Folder were still the old files. I had to update them too...  at least im for 90% sure :P

sorry guys. I guess I thought it would be understood that to get to High Sierra easily, one must update ESP and kexts in /L/E before doing the upgrade. The kexts posted will run on 10.12 or 10.13

 

The basic procedure that seems to work:

 

1) update ESP and kexts with latest zip from GitHub (posted a new bundle yesterday) while still on 10.12.6

2) reboot and verify functions (audio etc)

3) directly download High Sierra from App Store to HD

4) install from HD

By any chance does anyone know how to fix the Displayport? Currently only able to use HDMI but would be useful to be able to use both, if possible. 

 

Also, after upgrading to High Sierra, my battery % wasn't displaying correctly on the menu bar. I had to remove it by holding cmd key and then dragging the icon out....just in case someone comes upon the same issue!

@vusun123 - sure if provided the SSDT, I will include in the next release. I don't have T460 but I have been updating the zip on Github with newer Clover and kexts. So obviously I can't test or validate anything.

 

@xcaret - are you on the latest ACPIBatteryManager kext? there were some recent updates.

Yes, I am on the latest ACPIBatteryManager from your new kext pack. The battery percentage is working now after dragging the battery icon out of the menu bar and re-adding it on the System Preferences.....just wanted to throw this glitch with my system in case anyone else faces the same problem. 

 

Is displayport supposed to be working? So far, I've only gotten the HDMI to work. 

 

Never mind, I got it to work now! I just went ahead and followed the DSDT/SSDT steps again and now it is working. 

 

thank you for all your help!!!!

      Intel® Core i7 6700K
      nVidia® Graphics Maxwell® or Pascal®
      Disclaimer:
      This guide will assume that you know what you are doing and also assumes that you have already made a backup of your data before making any changes to your hardware or software. If you have not made a backup STOP HERE! and create one.
      I will not be held responsible for any data loss or any damage you might cause to your computer in the process of installing macOS® on your computer.
      By following this guide, you acknowledge that installing Mac OS X® and macOS® on any hardware that is not produced by Apple® is illegal and you will be responsible if you break any laws.
      All the trademarks and copy rights belong to their respective owners.
      This guide is only for your personal use and your information, therefore if you break any laws by using this manual you will be responsible for it not me. Any commercial use of the contents of this guide is prohibited.
      If I forget to mention your name or someone else’s name in the credits section forgive my negligence and feel free to contact me and I will add your name/s.
      This guide is written specifically for the hardware specifications I’m using, but the principal in general might apply to other hardware with similar specs with the exception of DSDT and SSDT files.
      Important Notes:
      1. Always backup your data before making any changes to your hardware or software.
      2. Always keep a bootable Clover USB disk with the latest working configurations just in case.
      3. I suggest you use another bootable USB for testing and not to edit the EFI folder on the hard drive.
      4. Preferably use the latest BIOS (F21 at the time of writing) version and the latest version of Clover EFI bootloader (4077 at the time of writing).
      5. There are two main versions of Clover EFI bootloader available in this package. One for the users with a nVidia GPU and the other one is for the users with IntelHD 530 GPU.
      6. So many parts of this tutorial are universal and they apply to all Hackintosh and Apple computers, like creating the Bootable USB disk drive or mounting the EFI partition. So, you can use them on all the computers that run macOS or even use them for installing macOS on other Hackintosh computers.
      7. The config.plist, the DSDT.aml file and the SSDT tables are specifically created for the GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 motherboard so do not use them on other hardware because they simply won’t work or even if they do you might experience some problems and errors.
      8. This tutorial is based on my personal experience. So, you might need to make some extra adjustments.
       
      Downloading the macOS® Sierra installer from App Store:
      Download the version of macOS® you want to install on your computer from App Store, macOS® Sierra. For downloading the macOS® installer you’ll need an Apple® computer or a working Hackintosh and a valid Apple ID. Although downloading macOS® Sierra® doesn’t require an Apple ID but if you are going to use your Hackintosh for day to day use you’re going to need a valid Apple ID.
      You can download the macOS® Sierra® installer by using the link below:
      macOS® Sierra® 10.12.5:
      https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-sierra/id1127487414?mt=12&ls=1
      You can also use App Store directly for downloading it. The “Install macOS® Sierra.app” will be saved to the following path once downloaded: /Applications/
       
      Creating bootable USB Disk for macOS®:
      Plug in a USB flash drive (8Gb or larger) and launch disk utility to format the flash drive.
      To create a bootable USB drive for macOS®, everything must be exactly as shown in the picture below.
      Once you successfully formatted the flash drive, open Terminal from /Applications/Utilities:
      Copy and paste the following command into terminal without the “”:
      For macOS® Sierra®:
      “sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app —nointeraction”
      Press return/enter to run the command. You’ll be asked to give your password and once you type your password press return/enter and the process will start.
      Depending on the speed of the USB drive you are using it will take about 5 to 30 minutes to complete the process. It took about 5 minutes on my computer to create the bootable disk on a USB 3.0 flash drive.
       
      How to mount the EFI partition using command line:
      Launch the terminal application again if you closed it previously.
      Type “diskutil list” and press return/enter
      You’ll see list of all the Internal and the external hard drives 
      Type “diskutil mount /dev/diskXsX” and press return/enter
      First X is the number of the disk and the second X is the number of the partition
      In this case the command will be:
      e.g. diskutil mount /dev/disk2s1
      Now you can see the EFI partition of disk6 is mounted on the desktop, if you can’t see the partition on the desktop you can find it in finder window’s “Sidebar” under “Devices”

      BIOS Settings:
      Now it’s time to configure the BIOS before installing macOS®.
      First of all, it’s better to “Load Optimized Defaults” settings on the BIOS so we could start from scratch without having any misconfigurations.
      You need to make the following changes to get macOS® working on your pc:
      BIOS:
      Fast Boot = Disabled
      Windows 8/10 = Windows 8/10 WHQL or Other OS
      CSM Support = Disabled
      Secure Boot = Not Active
      Attempt Secure Boot = Disabled
      Peripherals
      Initial Display Output = PCIe 1 Slot (Only If you are using a nVidia GPU, if you are using an AMD GPU you’ll need to enable IGFX and set it to primary in order to boot into macOS® Sierra®)
      Trusted computing, Security Device Support = Disable
      Super IO Configuration, Serial IO = Disable
      USB Configuration, Legacy USB Support = Enabled
      USB Configuration, XHCI Hand-off = Enabled
      USB Configuration, USB Mass Storage Drive Support = Enabled
      USB Configuration, Port 60/64 Emulation = Enabled
      SATS And RST Configuration = AHCI
      Chipset
      VT-d = Disabled (If you need it add “dart=0” flag to config.plist under Boot section)
      Internal Graphics = Disabled (Only If you are using a discreet GPU if you are using an AMD GPU you’ll need to enable IGFX and set it to primary in order to boot into macOS® Sierra®)
      In Chipset, IOAPIC 24-119 Entries = Disable
      If you are using Intel Graphics or IGFX
      In Chipset, Internal Graphics = Enabled 
      In Chipset, DVMT Pre-Allocated = set it to 64 
      In Chipset, DVMT Total Gfx Mem = set it to max
      Save and Exit.
       
      Installing Clover EFI Bootloader:
      In order to boot successfully into macOS® you’ll need to install a Bootloader on the drive you are using as the main bootable device whether is a flash drive or a hard disk drive.
      There are number of bootloaders that could be used to boot up the macOS® on a PC computer or a Hackintosh but we will only use Clover EFI Bootloader and here is how to properly install and configure Clover EFI Bootloader on your computer.
      In this section, we will be installing the UEFI version of the Clover so if you are using the Legacy BIOS version for whatever reason this guide is not for you.
      You can download the latest version of Clover EFI Bootloader from:
      https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
      As I mentioned before in the first page of this manual the latest version of the Clover EFI Bootloader is Clover_v2.4k_4077.
       
      Stage 1:
      Once you have downloaded the bootloader double click the installer package to start the installation process. The process will only take few minutes and after that you need to customize or optimize the contents of the EFI partition which you’ve installed clover into. Please make sure you select the USB drive you created earlier as shown below and not the HDD of the computer you are using.
      If you see the following dialog after double clicking the installer package, all you need to do is to right click on the Clover_v2.4k_r4077.pkg and from the menu select open and once more click the open button. 
      Click continue and read the “Important Information” or not and then click continue once more.
      You need to select the location that you want to install Clover EFI Bootloader to.
      Make sure that you are installing clover to the right location, basically you must choose the drive that you have installed macOS® Sierra® onto unless you want to install the bootloader on another drive, say a flash drive.
      Now you need to customize which components of the bootloader to be installed, if not you won’t be able to boot into macOS® at all.
      Check the following items and then click install:
      1. Install for UEFI booting only (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface)
      2. Install Clover in the ESP (EFI System Partition) or (Extensible Firmware Interface System Partition)
      3. Install can also choose a theme for your clover bootloader and the CloverThemeManager.app to change or modify the themes later.
      4. Install Drivers64UEFI that apply to your system you will need at least these two drivers:
      1. EmuVariableUefi-64
      2. OsxAptioFix2Drv-64
      You can also choose other drivers if they apply to your computer and if you need them, otherwise you’re good to go.
      5. You can also install the RC script on the target volume to enable the shell command prompt in clover’s boot screen.
      Once the installation is started, the EFI partition of the hard disk or USB drive that you are installing clover to will be mounted on the desktop, if you can’t see the partition on the desktop you can find it in the finder window’s “Sidebar” under “Devices”
       
      Stage 2:
      In this stage, you need to configure the config.plist and the other components on the EFI partition either by modifying the config.plist inside the /EFI/Clover/ folder using “TextEdit” or any other text editor application that you like or using “Clover Configurator” (recommended) application which has a GUI for editing the config.plist and it has some other useful built-in apps such as EFI mounter or a Base64 to HEX converter etc. or you can just simply replacing the “Clover” folder with the one that is provided with this guide.
      At this moment you might not be familiar with all the settings and options inside the config.plist file and Clover Configurator, no need to worry.
      You can easily replace the whole “Clover” folder inside the “EFI” folder on the EFI partition of your bootable disk (hard disk drive or USB flash drive) with the folder included with this guide and you’ll be good to go as along as your main components specifically your CPU and GPU are the same as mine.
      Otherwise you might need some additional settings and flags to be added to the config.plist.
      For instance, if you are using a NVMe SSD disk drive you’ll need to add proper patches in order to get it to work.
      You can find more about clover and its settings at:
      https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home
       
      and you can find “Clover Configurator” at:
      http://mackie100projects.altervista.org
       
      How to enable kext using Clover EFI Bootloader:
      In this section I will briefly explain how to install kexts that are needed to make your macOS® work more properly and efficiently.
      As you know all the hardware components in a computer need a so called “Driver” to operate correctly in the operating system.
      The same principle applies to macOS® and Mac OS X®. We call them “Kext” files or “Extension” files.
      By default, Apple provides all the required kext files with the operating system to run on a legitimate Apple computer.
      On the other hand, on a Hackintosh you need to install some extra kext files created by the community to obtain full functionality of your computer. You can either install them directly to “System/Library/Extensions” folder of macOS® Drive or you can place them into the EFI folder on the EFI partition of your bootable drive, which is a better way because if those files are the modified version of an original kext file that Apple is provided after each major update they will be replaced is the OS and you’ll lose the functionality of that particular component or more components.
      For example, Maxwell and Pascal GPUs have the “Boot to black screen” issue with some SMBIOS settings like iMac17,1, iMac15 and MacPro 6,1 system definitions. It means if you use one of those system definitions your computer will show a black screen after loading macOS® even after installing the nVidiaWebDrivers.
      So, you’ll need to either change the SMBIOS definition or you need to patch the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” to avoid the black screen.
      Once you patch the file with whatever method, if you install macOS® update you’ll need to apply the patch all over again.
      Besides changing the system files in macOS® will mix up the file permission of the files and if it’s not properly installed or if you forget to fix the permission of the files you might render the whole operating system useless and you’ll need to either fix the permissions on the /System/Library/Extensions or for short /S/L/E or you might need to reinstall the whole operating system from scratch. 
      For each version of macOS®, there is a folder inside the following path:
      /EFI/Clover/kext/
      So, you can copy the kexts you need inside the folder that correlates with the version of macOS® you are using.
      Even if you update the OS, the files inside that path won’t get changed.
      How to properly adding kext file to /System/Library/Extensions:
      There are several ways to install additional kexts on macOS, but I will only discuss two methods that are the easiest ways to install kext without having to type any commands in terminal.
       
      Using Kext Utility:
      By using kext utility you can easily install kext files inside /System/Library/Extension.
      All you have to do is to open the Kext Utility app, type in your password and drag the kext file you want to install into the app’s window and it will install them in to the path give above. The good thing about this app is that it will automatically repairs the permission of the /System/Library/Extension folder and the kext files inside it.
      Once the process is done you can reboot the system and see the results.
       
      Kext Wizard:
      Kext wizard is another handy tool with more functions built into it, you can select the path for installing the kexts files even to another operating system on another volume.
      You can repair the permissions and rebuild system kext cache. You can even load kexts files and test them or list the kext that are already loaded in the system.
       
      Post Installation:
      To have a fully functional Hackintosh you need to add the following kext files and DSDT/SSDT files and tables.
      Kexts:
      FakeSMC.kext https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-fakesmc-kozlek/downloads/
      Audio:

      https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-eapd-codec-commander/downloads/RehabMan-CodecCommander-2015-0522.zip
       
      Note:
      Install CodecCommander.kext v. 2.4.0 inside /System/Library/Extensions/ and set darkwake=8 in config.plist to solve the audio after sleep issue.
      I tried installing it inside /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12 and /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other and it didn’t work.
      I also tried other versions of CodecCommander.kext but none of them worked except for the v. 2.4.0.
      If you don’t want to use Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext and see the read the “Other methods for activating audio section”.

      Note:
      I also tested the system without USBInjectAll.kext and all my USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports were fully functional so it’s up to you whether to use it or not.

      VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
      Before you start using macOS® Sierra®, you need to change the SMBIOS of the config.plist:
      You have to change the SMBIOS settings before starting to use macOS® Sierra®, because the config.plist that is included in this guide doesn’t have a serial number for your Hackintosh, so you won’t be able to use any of Apple’s services without a serial number and a hardware UUID. It’s imperative to do so specially if you are going to use your Hackintosh for daily use. If you don’t change the serial number you won’t be able to use App Store, iCloud, iMessage etc. It’s highly recommended that you use iMac 17,1 SMBIOS as your default. iMac 17,1 and iMac 17,2 models use Skylake processors in Apple's original iMacs.
      For changing the SMBIOS you can use the built-in wizard inside “Clover Configurator” under SMBIOS Section. To open the wizard, click the small magic wand on the right side of the window to use the wizard.
       
      Audio:
      By using the EFI folder included with this guide and by using the patched DSDT/SSDT tables, “AppleALC.kext” and “Lilu.kext” you won’t need to do much to make the audio active on your Hackintosh.
      Just install the macOS® Sierra®, copy the EFI folder and audio is activated by default, HDMI audio will be active once you install nVidiaWebDrivers and restart the computer.
      If the audio didn’t work, you can rebuild prelinked kernel and kexts cache by using the following commands in terminal:
      1. sudo nvram -c 2. sudo purge 3. sudo rm -f /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache && sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force Or you can use “Kext Utility” to repair permissions on /System/Library/Extensions and /Library/Extensions and also it will also rebuilds the system cache for you.
      Kext Utility could be found at:
      http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=186603
       
      Note:
      If you see the following output in terminal it means that you forgot to mount the EFI partition, mount it and run the command again.
      EFI partition not mounted
      Boot/EFI not found

      Other methods for activating the Audio:
      1. audio_codecdetect.command
      This command will give you useful information about the audio chipsets and devices that are available on the system, after you run the command, the output will be like this:
      cdetect_v2.2.command ; exit;
      File: audio_codecdetect.command_v2.2

      Audio Troubleshooting:
      If after running the audio_cloverHDMI-120_v1.0d.command you see the following statement
      “Agreement
      The audio_cloverHDMI script is for personal use only. Do not distribute
      the patch, any or all of the files for any reason without permission.
      The audio_cloverHDMI script is provided as is and without any warranty.

      Continue without HDEF/onboard audio (y/n): y
      No audio codec detected
      No system files were changed
       
      It means you either don’t have a patched DSDT.aml file or SSDT tables and no patches are present inside the config.plist so you need to either add the DSDT/SSDT tables or add patches yourself.
      Don’t be alarmed it’s so easy.
      Open clover configurator and after mounting the EFI partition, open the config.plist and add the following patch :
      Under ACPI, DSDT patches select “change HDAS to HDEF” from “List of Patches” and this will add the following code in the config.plist
      </dict>
      <key>Comment</key>
      <string>change HDAS to HDEF</string>
      <key>Disabled</key>

      Graphics:
      This section will be dedicated to nVidia GPUs specially Maxwell and Pascal. If you are using any other nVidia or AMD graphics you can skip this section.
      We tested these instructions on an EVGA 1070 Superclocked GPU and a Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX960 GAMING-4GB (Please include the brand for reference).
      As you might know the 10 series nVidia GPUs or Pascal are not compatible with Mac OS X El Capitan and earlier versions of macOS® but 9 series and Maxwell are compatible and they both need nVidiaWebDrivers to be fully functional.
      For macOS® Sierra® 10.12.5 you’ll need to download 378.05.05.15f01
      https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/378/WebDriver-378.05.05.15f01.pkg
      Solution 1:
      If you are looking for an easy way to get the GPU working all you have to is to copy the Lilu.kext and nVidaiGraphicsFixup.kext inside the kext folder in clover EFI bootloader.
      The full path is /EFI/Clover/kext/10.12
      Once you finished installing macOS® and nVidiaWebDrivers you’ll need to add the following flags and setting to the config.plist
      Under “Boot” section add or remove nvda_drv=1 if necessary. I don’t need to use it on my computer. You don’t need to inject anything in “Graphics” section Under “System Parameters” check “NvidiaWeb”   When installing Clover EFI bootloader under “Drivers64UEFI” install “EMUVariableUefi-64” // I also use OsxAptioFix2Drv.efi, never tested without it.
      and that’s it!
       
      Solution 2:
      If you don’t want to use nVidaiGraphicsFixup.kext you only have two options:
      1. Run AGDP-fix.app to edit the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” to fix “Boot to Black Screen” issue 2. Or you can edit the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” manually using terminal. If you choose the second solution for any reason remember after each major update you need to apply the patch all over again.
       
      Wi-Fi:
      TP-Link WDN4800 works out of the box without any hassle.
      The only problem that you might encounter with it is "ATHR: unknown locale: 21" error in the verbose boot.
      The Atheros patch is to avoid the series of "ATHR: unknown locale: 21" messages in the verbose boot which they will be registered in message console's logs and they will make the log file bigger. The patch will fix the WiFi location and will stop the error and therefore there will be no more logs.
      Without the patch, the WiFi will work just the same but with lots of messages in the log.
      If you don’t use the TP-Link WDN4800 you can remove the patch or simply leave it as disabled.
       
      USB 3.0:
      Under Kernel and Kext Patches add the following to “KextsToPatch”:
      This patch will raise the limit of the USB ports from 15 to 26.
      For macOS® Sierra
      Name*: AppleUSBXHCIPCI
      Find* [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff10
      Replace [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff1b
      Comment: Raise change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series)
      MatchOS: 10.12.x
      You also might need to add RehabMan’s “USBInjectAll.kext” to the following path under “/EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12” for macOS® Sierra
      Note:
      If you are using a patched DSDT or SSDT tables you don’t need to use any DSDT patches in clover and the “USBInjectAll.kext” you will have full functional USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. I didn’t test USB 3.1 ports because I have no USB 3.1 device to test it!
      The port limit patch must only be temporary, you will need to create your own custom SSDT-UIAC to only inject the ports you use.
       
      Custom SSDT-UIAC:
      A quick rundown on how to create a custom SSDT-UIAC.
      Add the following patch to your config.plist if you don’t already have the patch.
      <dict>
      <key>Comment</key>
      <string>change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series)</string>
      <key>MatchOS</key>
      <string>10.12.x</string>
      <key>Name</key>
      <string>com.apple.driver.usb.AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string>

      <data>g710////EA==</data>
      <key>Replace</key>
      <data>g710////Gw==</data>
      </dict>
       
      or
       
      Name*: AppleUSBXHCIPCI
      Find* [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff10
      Replace [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff1b
      Comment: Raise change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series)
      MatchOS: 10.12.x
       
      The USBInjectAll.kext provided in this guide needs to be and stay installed.
      Download ioregistryexplorer Version 3.0.3 from http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/IORegistryExplorer.shtml
      or download IOJones which is an alternative to IORegistryExplorer at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/iojones/
      Download MaciASL from https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-maciasl-patchmatic/downloads/RehabMan-MaciASL-2017-0117.zip and extract, drag MaciASL.app into /Applications. (Credit RehabMan)
      Download OS-X-USB-Inject-All Master from: (Credit RehabMan)
      https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All/archive/master.zip
      and extract the zip file.
      Inside the OS-X-USB-Inject-All-master folder you will find SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl, copy it to your desktop.
      Open ioregistryexplorer and find your device id by typing XHC in the search field.
      Open SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl with MaciASL and find your appropriate device id section.
      Remove all other sections in the SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl that do not correspond with your device id leaving just the one section. Skylake does not have a EHCI controller so “HUB1”, ”HUB2”, ”EH01”, "EH02" can be removed and in my case I can also remove "8086_1e31", "8086_8xxx", "8086_9xxx", "8086_9cb1", "8086_9d2f" and "8086_a2af".
      Compile the file to make sure there are no errors in the code and then save the file with “ACPI Machine Language Binary”. 
      Now we turn our attention to ioregistryexplorer, while you have ioregistry open go to the XHC section and take note of the HSxx or SSxx locations that have devices attached. Now plug in a USB 2.0 device into all USB 2.0 you NEED and do the same with USB 3.0 ports with USB 2 and 3 devices and take note of them all.
      Returning back to the SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl you will see all ports listed, you need to remove the ones you did not take note of and you can also add a comment to the ones you keep. 
      UsbConnector values = USB 2.0 = 0, USB 3.0 = 3. Internal = 255
      USB 2.0 devices plugged into USB 3.0 ports HSxx are still marked as USB 3.0 = 3.
      Internal devices such as Bluetooth etc are marked as 255
      Once you gone through and done this to all the devices you need and removed the ones you don’t you can save your SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl in MaciASL. Make sure you rename it to SSDT-UIAC and that the file format is ACPI Machine Language Binary
      Copy and paste the resulting SSDT-UIAC.aml into your EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder.
      Disable the port limit patch in config.plist and add SSDT-UIAC.aml into SortedOrder if needed.
      Reboot.
       
      Open ioregistryexplorer and test the ports you left enabled USB 2 & 3.
      The number of ports you should see in ioreg should be significantly reduced as they are not being injected anymore.

      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.

           II. Enter the correct System Memory Multiplier which in my case based on my 2666MHz DDR4 it must be 26.6.
           III. Select [Enhanced Performance] from Memory Enhancement Settings. You can choose any of the options I chose Enhanced Performance.
           IV. From BIOS Features Fast Boot is disabled, Windows 8/10 Features is set to Windows 8/10 WHQL, LAN PXE Boot Option is disabled, CMS Support is Enabled, Storage Boot Option Control is UEFI Only, Other PCI Device RPM Priority is UEFI Only and Network Stack is Disabled and Secure Boot State is Disabled.
           V. From Peripherals: VT-d is disabled, Internal Graphics is set to Auto, Audio Controller is Enabled, Audio DSP is Disabled, PCH LAN Controller,SATA Configuration is set to AHCI, Wake on LAN and High Precision Timer are Enabled. I didn’t patch my BIOS because of a great job that Pike R Alpha did with a kext based patch for Skylake processors and to patch the AppleACPI.kext.
      Under Super IO Configuration Serial Port must be disabled as well.
      UPDATE: I recently updated my BIOS to f5h and IOAPCIEntries 24-119 Entries is there so if you are using that version of the BIOS or anything prior to original f4 you don't need to use the ACPI patch.
           VI. Save your new settings and reboot.
      Here is a copy of my EFI folder which works great with this configurations, Just remember I didn’t inject any Graphic Adapters so you have to configure it with yourself based on the graphic adapter you are using.

      Activating Audio:
      Download and install VoodooHDA 2.8.8.V3
      Use clover configurator to edit your config.plist
      ACPI: "Add the following DSDT Patch"
      Comment: Rename HDAS to HDEF
      Find* [HEX] :48444153
      Replace [HEX] :48444546
      Set the following flags under Boot section:
      kext-dev-mode=1 and rootless=0
      The audio won't work by default, you need to install Toledo's audio driver or install VoodooHDA.
      Toledo's commands are available at: https://github.com/t...audio_CloverALC
      and
      VoodooHDA is available at: http://sourceforge.n...ects/voodoohda/
      I personally use VoodooHDA instead of Toledo's script because for some unknown reason with Toledo's audio kexts and script while I was playing musics after a few minutes I could hear a noise which was getting worse so I tried VoodooHDA and now it work perfectly fine.
      My audio layout is set to 1.
      FYI: If you are going to use VoodooHDA just remember after you installed the VoodooHDA there will be a file in your application folder called "VoodooHdaSettingsLoader" which you need to place it in your login items in system preferences under "Users and groups" ---> "login Items" and adjust the "input Gain" under "VoodooHDA" in system preferences to avoid the hissing sound every time the OS starts. and if you don't every time you restart the system you'll need to adjust your audio settings. By loading this application OS will remember you settings and load them.
