Mojave 10.14.1 on Lenovo 330s

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Spec:

 

CPU: Intel i5-8250u

RAM: 4GB DDR4 on board, 8G in additional slot

disk: 128GB NVMe SSD(comes with Windows 10 Home)

disk2: 1TB HDD(replaced with Patriot Burst 480GB SATA SSD and install Mojave on it)

2 USB3 ports

1 USB Type-C

HDMI

Card-Reader(havn't tested yet)

14" display 1920x1080

weight: around 1.6KG

Intel wifi, I replaced it with BCM94350Zae

I havn't tried Bluetooth yet because it's not a necessity for me, but wifi works well.

 

battery works after following Rehabman's guide, a lot of work but worth it :)

ELAN touchpad also works after DSDT patching, no GPIO pinning required

need to install VoodooI2C, VoodooI2CHID in /Library/Extensions and rebuild cache

you might also need to remove AppleIntelLpssI2C.kext and AppleIntelLpssI2CController.kext as well

 

sleep/wake works fine, but the system drains about 8% of power during 20 hours of sleep,

it also drains power more quickly than expected when I'm using it.

I wonder if I could do anything thing to improve power consumption.

 

sometimes it would take up to 15 seconds to fall asleep, sometimes less than 5 seconds

(I mean when the power button goes from "on" to "flashing slowly", indicating it's sleeping)

 

please help me improve clover config or DSDT if u can.

 

overall, i think this is a good choice for hackintosh laptop :)

Can you please make a full guide for this hackintosh? I have the same laptop, but stuck at booting to the installation step, getting just a constant bootloop, thank you so much, for letting me know with this post, that it's at least possible, to make our laptop a decent replace for macbook!

I have the similar (but very different) 330s 15IBK, which has Kaby Lake Refresh i3-8130 + not ELAN trackpad :-(

 

I cannot get battery status/lid sleep/trackpad working...

 

I can get barely usable trackpad with VoodooI2C + I2CHID kexts

 

I have also gotten partially working battery status, but after the 16bit patching to 8bit, DSDT would no longer compile :-(

 

If you know of any info/guide regarding this model, could you please let me know!

I have 330s-15IKB which does not have ethernet port, wifi only. I boot off usb just nice (clover) to installer.
First strange thing is that in installer, in listed MacOS Utilities I have an option to Reinstall macOS where I would expect an option to Install macOS.

When I click on it I got error message (see below) since it needs an internet connection which I don't have (yet) since I don't have ethernet nor can set up usb wifi in installer (or I can?).

 

So can somebody please explain my options here - maybe getting usb to ethernet adapter with appropriate kexts? Is there a way to install it without internet connection - I don't get it why internet connection is really needed as I have full installer on usb stick? No need to download anything I believe.

Is it normal to have Reinstall option instead of Install?

 

all help appreciated, thanks
