[GUIDE] Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover

I'm getting a kernel panic while install Sierra. I'm using clover to inject intelGFX as id 00000000

Your DVMT Pre-alloc is 32MB, hence it panics. Use Rehabman's hotpatch config, it has the minStolensize patch for Skylake to help you bypass this panic. You may need FakeID Intel = 12345678 to get into OS X without acceleration first

Greetings to all,

I am new to the hackintosh field, but it truly is very tempting (an almost real Macbook for no extra cost).

I have a Thinkpad T460 i7-6600U with intel-HD 520 graphics, 8GB ram, an 128GB SSD and latest bios.

 

I had no problem building the installer and installing Sierra 10.12.1 and Windows 10 (in a single SSD - dual boot)

 

Looking in my display properties in Windows 10 it seems i have 128MB DVMT, (i guess it is a i7-6600U specific thing?)

So according to the guides in here and other forums, i should be OK with full hardware acceleration and no glitches.

 

post-1662853-0-58713200-1479399408_thumb.png

 

 

BUT even after finishing setup (install Clover, all custom kexts etc) and booting from HDD, i still need to inject Intel graphics with the bogus ID or i get a kernel panic and reboot.

 

Since the changes - patches needed to Kext's DSDT's and SSDT's are so complex, can someone guide me on what i should change - undo from the setup in this guide?

 

Thanks...

@Asxetos -

 

i posted the zip of my ESP with the intent to make easy for someone to just drop all of that in place. detailed steps in post 1 - but it boils down to:

  1. install macOS
  2. install EFI folder in your own ESP on the HD
  3. install kexts on the HD in /L/E

it seems you did all that. and this all worked ok for El Capitan for a few people. Sierra is much better and works for me. 

Note: the Dedicate video memory shown in windows is not a true indication of the pre-allocate memory which seems to be set to 32MB - there a patch to address that however.

For me on Sierra, I had to roll back the GFX kexts to 10.11.6 versions to get running on Sierra. Note: my GFX situation never fully worked seemingly due to touchscreen complications.

Thanks for the answer tluck, i guess i will have to search a little bit more.

Having to actually disable the graphics to boot, Sierra reports 7MB of graphics memory but that must be the standard VGA frame buffer

 

Is there a more reliable method to check the actual amount of DVMT memory OSX will see with graphics enabled?

Just got my T460s installed with 10.12.1! So excited...

 

Need to fix a few things - audio, swap CMD and Alt keys. Will post more later.

 

Thanks for all your help. 

Hey,

 

what is the spec of your T460s?

Can you make an how to?

@Ezak - how to what?

If you use the DSDT/SSDT in the first post zip, then they define the PS2K as T460 and VoodooPS2Controller will  handle the key swap.

Hello,

 

I finally get the wifi card, and it's now installed inside the T460.

 

Before to start the installation, I have to :

- increase the EFI partition, because on my 256Go SSD it's only 100Mo (200Mo is required I guess)

- use the technic to increase the DVMT size (EFI shell???)

 

Am I right?

 

Thanks

1. EFI Partition 200MB is appreciated, but you can skip this if you format the macOS partition as HFS+ in Windows using Paragon Hard Disk Suite

2. EFI Shell is not working for T/X/W Thinkpad since they have tight security

Does anybody have an update for the kernel panic of AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer?  I can boot El Capitan with intelgfx injection with QE/CI, but not Sierra.  Sierra installs fine on the VGA driver with fakeID = 0x1234567 and injection, and boots with that setting, but not with the injection and no fake ID.

Skylake framebuffer in Sierra now can cause kernel panic if your DVMT is not appopriately configure. You need to FakeID to a bogus one, then use the Skylake minStolenSize patch from Rehabman's repo

I am using the config.plist that @tluck posted in the OP -- I think it has the patch already:

Manually patch the kext first, if it isn't loaded in the kernel cache it can't be patched

Manually patch the kext first, if it isn't loaded in the kernel cache it can't be patched

 

I'll give that a try soon.  I've read that Sierra doesn't use a cache and only prelinked kernels -- is there something I'm missing about how to rebuild the cache and/or kernel than just kextcache -u?

 

yeah. i had troubles too on Sierra. so i went the "easy" route - and just rolled back to El Cap AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer kext - which does not seem to even need patching?

 

I went even easier and went back to El Cap haha.  I imaged my setup so I can give Sierra a try again.

I hex edited the AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer kext, and it says that it cannot load the Framebuffer and just loaded Sierra in 2d.  I am rolling back to El Capitan for the time being.

OK guys:

 

From reading the T460 thread on the other forum, RehabMan explained (indrectly) why the Sierra/10.12 MinStolenSize patch wasn't working for us.  If you're using SSDT-IGPU-T460.aml in the OP, this will override the ig-platform-id in the Clover config.plist.  This will cause AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext to assert from the incorrect DVMT-prealloc value no matter what you do in the config.plist.  So the correct course of action to get the patch working is to:

 

1) Do NOT use the aforementioned SSDT (or rename it, whatever you like).

2) Change the ig-platform-id in the config.plist contained in the ESP to an invalid one (I used 0x1), WITHOUT a fake-id.  According to RehabMan, this loads the AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext but not start it.  

3) Rebuild the kextcache.

4) Change the config.plist back to the correct ig-platform-id and boot normally (including with SSDT-IGPU-T460.aml).

 

My graphics appears to be working, albeit with some menu glitches -- I need to check out the thread with the solution for this.  On the downside, my brightness keys now do not work.  Both keys increase brightness.  I need to look into this as well.

The info.plist for the VoodooPS2Controller kext in your T420 package shows 1.8.24g -- I think I need the 1.8.25 update (Dec. 08) for the Sierra brightness key mapping.

 

I also tried the Skylake glitch fix in Sierra and it works with no issues.  HiDPI resolutions above 720p are not working for me though -- it works when the resolution is set (through Retina Display Manager) but the screen is garbled when the computer wakes up from sleep.  Has anyone encountered something similar?

Very nice guide.

 

T560 runs with this very well.

Do you have no flickers in the top left edge?

I had to Add just one line in Clover->Devices-> Add Properties

 

Device IntelGFX

Key AAPL,GfxYTile

Value AQAAAA==

Vale Type String

 

How did you configure the keyboard layout. Did you have a Gui-Tool for setting the right functions to the proper keys? 

Beside that:

I find a "removed CD/DVD" with your kext and configs. Do you have  a vague idea what could cause this?

@barrrrt

 

what do you mean by keyboard layout?

well i just merged in my changes to the latest v1.8.25 voodooPS2controller. i will post a new zip.

 

@mangyver - did you get the GFX working without KP on Sierra? I may look into replacing my LCD with non-touch LCD ...

I compiled and installed your fork of 1.8.25.  Brightness hotkeys are working great, but it doesn't seem like the trackpad right click works (registers as left click).  The trackpoint right click works though.  It was like this also in 1.8.24, although it was working in El Cap.  No issues with scrolling or gestures that I see though.

 

Yup gfx works with no KP using the minStolenPatch in your config.plist.  I posted about it last page.  However I am not able to get HiDPI 1920x1080 or 1600x900 to work (garbled screen on wakeup).  This does not occur with the non-HiDPI versions of those resolutions, or 720p.  This was also working in El Cap.  The WQHD panel on the T460s is gorgeous but brings its own issues I guess.

      Hi!
       
      I have everything working on my Acer notebook, except FN + Brightness keys using VoodoPS2Controller.kext
       
      Now the brightness keys are "Pause+Break = Brightness Up" and "Fn+F12 = Brightness Down" working right now but they are not the actual keys. 
      The actual brightness keys are "Fn+RightArrow = Brightness Up" and "Fn+LeftArrow = Brightness Down" but they are not working.
      The problem is I don't know the codes.
      Installed ioio and enabled debugging to console:
      Pause/Break is generating: "ApplePS2Keyboard: sending key e045=71" which upper the brightness
      Fn+F12 is generating: "ApplePS2Keyboard: sending key 46=6b" which lower the brightness
      Fn+RightArrow/LeftArrow generates nothing.
      Keyboard attached to PS2K
      Then I used rehabman's guide to enable ACPIDebugging, Installed kext to L/E, Debug methods (Instrument EC Queries, Add DSDT Debug Methods) to DSDT, but there are no codes generated to the log.
       
      Attaching debug folder.
      Also I don't know if it will help, but on Linux I got a code from decreasing/rising brightness with Fn+Left/RightArrow keys:
      Fn+RightArrow: "0xe0 0x54 0xe0 0xd4"
      Fn+Left: "0xe0 0x4c 0xe0 0xcc"
       
      Also I love using EMlyDinEsH's SmartTouchpad Driver, with that all of my Fn keys are working except Brigtness keys ofc. If there are any fix I would like to use that with the smarttouchpad driver. 
      EMlyDinEsH's SmartTouchpad Driver: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/1948-elan-focaltech-and-synaptics-smart-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/
       
      Specs in my signature. 
      Please help me fix this very last issue on my acer.

      Hi, I followed the rehabman guide (linked in the vanilla guide on the side of r/Hackintosh, not sure if I can link it) for laptops for my yoga 730ILW13 with an 8265u, Conexant 11870, 8gb of ram, 13.3" fhd and I found that upon booting the installer usb I get this weird issue where the screen displays what it should but the screen is incredibly dim (though it was off before using a flashlight on it) and it flashes every few seconds for a few milliseconds to the correct brightness, I used the plist for hd615-650 (including my 620), not quite sure what could be the culprit, first time hackintoshing a laptop so it might be a stupid brightness kext I forgot but didn't find any in that post or in this forum :c 
      Attached the clover zip so that anyone with more experience than me might give an idea in what could be a way to fix this.
      Thank you in advance

      What works and what does not
       
      - Processor: Intel Core i5-4300M ->  Work. All SpeedStep stages.
      - Video Card: Intel HD4600 ->  Work. QE/CI and Metal.
      - Chipset: Intel QM87 ->  Work.
      - Mini DisplayPort ->  Work. But no audio, yet.
      - VGA ->  Not work. Normal.
      - Audio: ALC292 ->  Work.
      - WiFi/Bluetooth: Intel AC 7260 ->  Not work. Replaced with DW1560 (need whitelist removal).
      - Ethernet: Intel I217-LM ->  Work.
      - Card Reader: Realtek RTS5227 ->  Not work.
      - Keyboard and Touchpad ->  Work.
      - Webcam ->  Work.
      - Fingerprint Reader ->  Not work. Normal.
      - USB3.0 ->  Work.
      - Sleep ->  Work.
      - Airdrop, Handoff, Instant Hotspot and Continuity ->  Work after replaced wireless.
       
       
      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 touchpad appear in System Preferences

      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;
       

       
       
      System update 10.14.4
       
      - Updated Clover to 4910.
      - Updated Lilu.kext to 1.3.5 and WhateverGreen to 1.2.7.
      - After first reboot the update progress stoped with:
      GTrace synchronization point 4 Unsupported CPU Unsupported PCH hmm.. mismatch sizes: 3100 vs 20 It was still possible to start the previous installation, selecting "Macintosh" as opposed to "macOS Install" in Clover.
      So I created a flash drive with Clover 4910 and put only my config.xml, SSDT-L440.aml, the updated Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext. And I decided to test VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.kext.
      With this I was able to install update 10.14.4. After installation I can boot normally, even with FakeSMC.kext that already in /Library/Extensions.
      I do not know what exactly happened, but now works everything like was previously.

      I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
      "could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating" 
      And some other warnings afterwards.
      Specs:

      RAM: 16GB DDR4
      2TB HDD + 128GB SSD
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 + Nvidia GTX960m
      I'm installing using a 16GB USB3 flash drive on one of HDD volumes (UEFI Mode)
       
      I uploaded the verbose log and clover config.plist
      config-new.plist
