I start this topic to make my Lenovo Thinkpad W540 usable with High Sierra
I followed many guides but this one started by @tluck made me most progress:
My setup as in signature
I will update first post with statuses of working features:
Nvidia Quadro - disabled
Intel HD 4600 - working @ 1920x1080 and 1,5GB RAM (had to set ig-plaform-id as Haswell desktop, mobile do not work)
internal speakers and mic works with AppleACL.kext and profile 28
i boot MacOS from USB drive and it works, mouse and pendrive also works
USB power not work yet, so USB WiFi dongle and iPhone connection not work (no power @ USB)
IOReq finds only USB 3.0 controller not USB 2.0 even though I have 2 ports USB 3.0 and 2 ports USB 2.0
recognised in IOReq but not working now (probably due to USB)
as USB but works without problem
works with intelMausiEthernet.kext
internal is PS2 so VoodooPS2Controller.kext is needed - some mappings I would like to have different but works
works with VoodooPS2Controller.kext from @tluck topic
One time works mostly not - debugging in progress
intel - not working
Sleep / Hibernate:
Other found issues:
besides that graphics works @ 1920x1080 and have a lots of ram window shadows (especially dock shadow) looks bad
not tested yet
External Mini Display Port / Thunderbolt:
not tested yet
Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
Release v2018.06.05 on GitHub
Updated to Clover r4513
Updated Lilu.kext - supports both Sierra and High Sierra
Updated AppleALC.kext - supports both Sierra and High Sierra + added back DVMT patch for 10.13.2+
Updated VoodooPS2Controller.kext (RehabMan version) + SSDT updates for T460
Added Frank's T470p DSDT files
Various Tweaks over Last months
The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra.
Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan.
Full Clover file set - config.plist etc.
Includes all custom kexts
Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches
The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
Devices and aspects working:
Ethernet - Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext
WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip
Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed)
PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt
USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work - 3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc
Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices.
Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.
New Installation - Steps and Details
Part 1 - OS Installation
Part 2- Post OS Installation and Setup
Notes on Custom Kexts
I own a Lenovo Thinkpad T520 with this hardware:
CPU: Intel Core i5-2520M 2.50 GHz Motherboard: Lenovo 4242Y13 Chipset Intel sandy bridge RAM: 8Gb DDR3 dual channel Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 3000 Storage: 320 Gb HDD 7200 rpm. Wireless Card: Intel 82579LM Gbit network connection Trackpad. Ports:
- 2 USB 2.0

- 1 Card reader
- 1 Ethernet
Is it Hackintosh compatible? I would like to install High Sierra, or at least El Capitan. I read that someone made it following the T410's guide, but they had the i7 version of the T520 with NVidia graphics. can you help me please?
Thank you for your time.
habe versucht nach der Anleitung von http://x220.mcdonnelltech.com/ auf einen X220 i7 zu installieren, bisher leider erfolglos. kann mir jemand die angehangenen Log Meldungen interpretieren und einen Tip geben an welcher Stelle ich weiter probieren muss. Habe es schon mit den folgenden Bootparametern probiert
-v -x -s -f cpus=1 maxmem=4096 GraphicsEnabler=No -no-zp
Es war ein 8 GB Speicherriegel gesteckt und die "neue" WLAN Karte, außerdem ist zusätzlich zur MSATA eine weitere HDD installiert.
