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
I'm trying to boot MacOS on a Chromebook without UEFI.
I'm stuck at getting the bootloader (Chameleon/Clover) to work.
My setup / context:
I have an Acer Chromebook Spin 13.
2 x USB-C
1 x USB-A 3.0
No USB A 2.0 (I've read that Clover has problems with USB 3.0)
There's no UEFI firmware available and by default, it doesn't even allow booting anything other than ChromeOS.
Thanks to MrChromebox (big shoutouts!), I flashed a custom legacy bios that allows me to boot anything linux related.
This bios is flashed into the RW_LEGACY section of the existing bootloader (coreboot afaik) and doesn't have any configuration options.
If I have to change a setting, I could try compiling his bios payload myself with the specific setting enabled.
What I've tried so far:
Only selected setting was "Install chameleon on the chosen path", rest was unselected.
1 - Install chameleon first without restoring the basesystem:
> boot0: GPT
> boot0: done
(hangs; pressing power button once shuts down
Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_BEFORE".
2 - Install Chameleon after restoring the base system:
> boot0: GPT
> boot0: GPT
> boot0: doneboot1: /boot <- Exactly like that, no line break in between
(hangs; pressing power button once shuts down)
I haven't been able to reproduce #2 after wiping the drive and doing the same thing again. Subsequent attempts have resulted in either #1 of either Chameleon or Clover.
Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_AFTER".
I tried multiple settings and configurations, but all of them boiled down to either one of these.
1 - Doesn't do anything, just hangs at "Booting from usb..."
2 - Boots into the blue/grey mode as shown in the attached images.
According to MrChromebox, this could be an old Tianocore DUET
It doesn't detect anything (cpu frequency, ram, partitions or disks)
I've read pretty much every article, github readme and other types of documentation for coreboot, tianocore, clover, chameleon and MrChromebox' rw_legacy payloads and right now, I'm totally clueless as to what to try next...
A few questions that came up:
Why does chameleon hang? What is it looking for, /boot was clearly written to the disk by the Chameleon installer?
What exactly is the blue/grey image? According to MrChromebox, it could be Tianocore DUET
Where does it come from? Clover? The mainboard itself?
Why does the blue/grey thing not detect my processor frequency or any partitions/drives?
Can I use some sort of DUET bootloader to chainload Clover?
If you guys could answer any of them or if you have any other guesses or information as to what's happening, I'd be really happy!
Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
Latest Release on GitHub (April 2019)
Updated to Clover r4918
Updated Lilu kexts - ALC, WEG
Merged Verleihnix' config.plist - especially to NOT inject GFX
Updated BacklightInjector as option to WEG.
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.

Part 1 - OS Installation
Part 2- Post OS Installation and Setup
