Hello Everyone ,,

 

I'd  like to share with you my experience with Lenovo ThinkPad P50 ( EFI , and Installation Process with some tips ) Hopefully to be useful for anyone who own Lenovo ThinkPad P50 

 

Before start I want to show you my device specs , and I'm  sure 99% this will work too with any P50 have different spec. specially Intel i7 CPUs:

 

- Intel Xeon E-3 1535 v5 ( P530 Intel HD Graphics )

- 32 GB RAM

- 256 GB SK Hynix Nvme SSD pc401 hfs256gd9tng-62a0a - for Mac OS  ( be careful not all nvme ssd are compatible)

- 256 GB Samsung Evo 850 SSD - for Windows 

- 4K Screen 

- Nvidia Quadro M2000M 4 GB ( Useless - Disabled )

- Intel WiFi Card ( Should be change to a compatible Broadcom one )

 

BIOS SETUP :

 

I highly recommend this steps before going to BIOS SETUP according to my experience with this Laptop :

 

      *( Update your BIOS Firmware to the latest one using windows )

 

      *( Remove Battery , Open the back cover and unplug the small CMOS BATTERY for about  4~5 minutes and put everything back again )

 

       * ( Remove any SSD HDD Nvme disks , USB , DisplayPort , Dock .. etc during installation, keep only the target Disk )

 

-------------------------------------------

Now Power your PC and Press F1 to enter the BIOS SETUP

 

   - Reset BIOS to its defaults

   - Adjust Date and Time 

   - Config ----> Network ---> Wake Up on Lan ( AC Only )

                                                   Network Stack ( Disabled )

 

  - USB ----> USB UEFI support  ( Enabled)

 

  - Display ------> Total Graphic Memory (256 MB)

                               Graphic Device ( Hybrid)

 

  - RAID -----> Disabled

 

  - Security -----> Security Chip Selection ( Discrete TPM )

                               Secure BOOT ( Disabled )

                               Intel SGX Control ( Software Control )

 

  - Start Up ------>BOOT Priority order ( USB HDD - Mac OS Disk - Windows - and so on ....... with this order )

                               UEFI/Legacy ( UEFI Only )

                               CSM Support  ( NO )

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

**   F1 to Enter Bios - F12 for Boot Menu

***   Delete the EFI Folder in your Installation USB and replace it with the Attached one 

****   Generate new serial for SMBIOS MacBook Pro 13.1

*****    If your CPU is XEON then go to Config.plist CPU Section and Add 0x05A5 under Type ( Fix for Unknown CPU )

****** You can delete boot-args "brcmfx=1 & brcmfx-driver=#a" if you want , I used it in my case with 1820A card to fix wifi issue

******    After you successfully installed OS , now Copy the same EFI Folder to your main EFI Boot Disk Partition 

*******    Now install all the attached KEXTS to "Library / Extensions"  using Hackintool.app or by any method and rebuild cache and repair permissions

********    Check and compare the KEXTS in Library/ Extensions and Delete the repeated ones from Clover / Kexts / Others ( Important don't duplicate the same kexts here and there )

 

FYI : LiluFriend.kext include ( Lilu , WhatEverGreen, AppleALC , AirportBrcmFixup ) All In One 

 

 

 

You are Done 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

What is working :

 

- 4K Intel HD P530 2048 MB 

- AUDIO

- CAMERA 

- ALL USB 3 PORTS , NO THUNDERBOLTS 

- Keyboard and TouchPad 

- Battery indicator 

- Display Brightness 

- Sleep 

- DSDT has been patched , USB Ports modified only to MacBookPro 13.1

 

             See the Screen Shot 

 

Important Notice For Future OS Updates Installations 

 

To avoid Kernel Panic during install any future updates process please remove ( FakeSMC.kext and LiluFriend.kext ) from Library/Extensions directory to Clover / Kexts / Others .

After update process finish put them back to Library/Extensions and delete them from clover . I hope this is clear enough

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Happy Hackintosh , Let me know if you have any issue or difficulties during installation or later , I will try to help you

 

*** Headphone Audio Distortions Fix ***

 

- just in case having this issue with headphones , go to clover >  Devices > Properties > and change Audio Layout Id from 03000000 to 16000000 this means ( from Layout ID  3 to Layout ID 22 )

 

if this is not enough then place Codeccommander.kext in Library/ Extensions or Clover / kexts / other

And place hda-verb and Jack fix to usr/bin folder

In Catalina use this command to enable disk read and write ( sudo mount -uw / ) and show hidden files to see usr/ bin folder and place fixes there... audio will be fixed successfully 

 

** P50 4K ICC Color Profile Calibrated **

You can download this icc and install it for more color accurate or modify it for the best result 

 

 

EDITED :

 

Catalina 10.15.1 Update :

@laruche

Use my EFI and delete DSDT.aml from Clover / ACPI / Patched 

Start your PC and press F4 to generate your ACPI and try to boot ...

If the problem still , then  remove your USB and copy your DSDT.aml from Clover/ACPI / Original to..  Clover / ACPI / Patched 

Try to boot now , after you successfully install OS , try to Patch your DSDT.aml 

Try also to remove SSDT.aml from my EFI

Hi @zkingtut and all the other ones as well!

 

First of all thanks a lot for your detailed post and sharing your EFI. 
I am trying to make a P70 (i7) of a friend getting a Hackintosh.

 

I got stuck at the boot menue. The situation is as follows: each time when I choose the boot stick the screen turns black for a second and jumps back into the boot menue. (I’ve setup the bios like describe in your first post.)

 

Maybe it has to do with the patched DSDT and SSDT, I’ve erased both of them in the patched folder.  Could it be that due to this the USB ports are not patched/working anymore?
 

Also, I didn’t get how to go trough that:

Start your PC and press F4 to generate your ACPI and try to boot...“

If the problem still, then  remove your USB and copy your DSDT.aml from Clover/ACPI / Original to..  Clover / ACPI / Patched

Where does it create the ACPI when the stick is not in the port (or does it create a DSDT.aml) and what to do next? I am confused...

 

Sorry, even with your very detailed explanation I am a bit lost and confused.


- Used your EFI (new serial and without DSDT and SSDT)

- Clover Version r5070

- Mojave boot stick

Boot your laptop from installation USB when you see menu and installation icon show up then Press F4 and shut down your laptop .

Now inside your USB  you have generated in this directory  ( Clover /ACPI / Original ) DSDT and SSDT

Use working system to just copy DSDT.aml from this Directory Clover/ACPI/Original to this directory  Clover/ACPI/Patched 

 

 

Post here your EFI Folder please to help you

Alright, got it.  Thank's a lot!

First I have to get to the macOS installation screen but it doesn’t show up as described in my previous post: each time when I choose the boot stick the screen turns black for a second and jumps back into the boot menue. (I’ve setup the bios like describe in your first post.)

 

I think I have an issue wit my Clover boot stick, looks like the Clover Installation has failed. I will make it again this evening (it‘s currently 7am where I am) and also try to install high Sierra, maybe I‘ll have more luck with that!?


I will upload my EFI this evening. 
 

Do you think I have to change anything in the EFI for High Sierra?

High Sierra or Mojave it doesn't matter 

EFI is the same 

What disk you use ? nvme ? If nvme make sure that is compatible 

Something else , I think I saw a thread on Reddit about P70 installation instractions 

Search google

Hi, thank you for the guide.

 

This is my first time installing Hackintosh. I'm trying to install Mohave on my P50 with i7 processor

 

Followed your guide,

- removed DSDT.aml, SSDT-PNLF.aml, SSDT-PNLF.aml from your EFI.

- copy my generated DSDT.aml to the patched folder

 

I got into installing menu, but can't get my ethernet to work and I don't have any external wifi usb.

 

I've tried replacing the IntelMausiEthernet.kext with versions (2.5.0, 2.4.0, 2.5.0b0) I downloaded from the maintainer. Still, can't get my ethernet to work and stuck at the installing menu.

 

it's not hardware problem either cuz my ethernet is working fine in Windows.

 

So... what shall I do to make the ethernet work?

      Hi there!
      I'm a newbie to the concept of installing a Mac OS on alternative hardware. Please bear with me
      I have a Lenovo Thinkpad x250 with 5th generation i7-5600U CPU, 16GB RAM, and Intel HD Graphics 5500. (I'd be glad to add any additional hardware details if needed)
      My goal is to have a dual boot machine - Mojave and Win 10. I have two separated physical drives.
      I've tried different methods, but none was stable to be operable.
      If anyone of you has the experience with this specific model it will be really great to hear your opinion.

      Thanks!

      This is not intended to be a complete and comprehensive installation guide. There are many installation guides on the forum and installing macOS is no different from installing on other desktop builds. Rather, this is supplemental information specific to the my hardware listed below. I hope you find this information useful and this will save you a little time.
       
      Hardware
      MB: Huananzhi X79-ZD3
      CPU: Intel® Xeon E5-2689, 1.2-3.6 GHz
      Chipset: Sandy Bridge-E Q65 (C600/C200)

      - Sound: audio jack + HDMI audio on both monitors
      - Wi-Fi (out of the box)
      - USB2 && USB3 ports
      - LAN
      - Bluetooth (out of the box)
       
      What does not work?
      - Sleep mode: not tested / I don't need
       
      BIOS Configuration, what's important:
      Bios Version: 4.6.5.4
      Legacy USB Support: [Enabled]
      XHCI Hand-off: [Enabled]
      EHCI Hand-off: [Enabled]

      Clover version: v2.5k r5088
      You can get the configuration file and the necessary kexts from the link at the end of the message
      Note: you must insert your own SeralNumber && MLB && ROM && SmUUID in the config.plist file.
       
      How to use
      To make a bootable flash drive, you can use my EFI directory (link at the end of the message). Tested for Mojave 10.14.6 installation.

      Apologies ahead of time if this is in the wrong thread (please move to appropriate thread if necessary) as it applies to pre-installation and post-installation, Mojave and Catalina, motherboards, user preferences, but it's all related and I just had to get all this written down since it's all resolved...
       
      The issues:
      MOJAVE 10.14.6 2019 SECURITY UPDATE
      CATALINA 10.15.1 INSTALLER USB
      POST Mother Board UPDATE ISSUES
      UEFI Bootloader disappearing from BIOS boot menu/setup
      MAPS NOT WORKING/ CORRUPT USER/LIBRARY/CACHE
      GPT HEADER CORRUPTION AT BOOT
       
      This is my system which has worked flawlessly ever since 10.14.1 and automatic updates within the OS.
      10.14.6 iMac 18,3
      ASUS Rog Maximux X Code Bios v 2023
      Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 Special Edition
      1 NVME System Drive, 1 x 1TB NVME Scratch Disk,  4 Internal 8TB HDD in raid 1+0, 4 x 3TB in a raid 5 setup with enclosure, 1 Backup System SSD, 1 2TB Time machine HDD (get to why I’m listing the drives later)
       
      Instead of making different posts for all of these issues that I’ve spent that past two weeks trying to solve (I almost gave up) I thought for anyone else out there experiencing one or any of the above issues you might find a solution in this thread.
       
      First let me say thanks to all the people out there in the various hackintosh communities (hackintoshers, tonymac, insanelymac, olarila, reddit) I researched every single one to find solutions for all these issues.
       
      Second, invest in Carbon Copy Cloner and make sure you make constant backups of your system drives.  Otherwise there would be no way to troubleshoot.
       
      So this all stemmed from not being able to update to Mojave 10.14.6 2019 Security Update released in November 2019.  
      My original post:
      Link removed:
      https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/e2naku/cant_update_mojave_to_security_update_2019001/
       
      There were plenty of different errors through troubleshooting:
      Kextdstall[1] (240s) ‘AppleACPICPU’
      or
      considerRebuildOfPrelinkedKernel com.apple.nke.webcontentfilter trigger rebuild
      or
      com.apple.xpc.launchd.domain.system
      <error>: Could not read path: path = /Library/LaunchDaemons, error=2: No suchfile or directory
      And
      IOG flags 0x3(0x51)

      IOConsoleUsers” gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs0, now 0, sm 0x0
      (The last two, still exist, but don’t stall/severely halt boot, and I’m not really sure if it’s an issue that needs to be addressed as I believe I’ve used the correct format of Device Properties to inject my framebuffer as a headless UHD 630 with 0x3E980003)
       
      Then once I managed to get past some of the installer stalls I always ended at “Installer resources were not found” prompting a restart and continuous loop cycle of no successful install.
       
      Then I tried making a bootable Catalina USB and couldn’t even install a fresh copy of 10.15.1 on a separate SSD.  Again getting errors in verbose mode that would stall and go no further.
       
      Then after cloning, and failing, and cloning and failing, changing bios settings, at some points my UEFI bootloader would completely disappear for my Samsung NVME 970 pro system drive.
       
      Was really getting frustrated, but was determined to fix it.  And here they are one by one in the order I Fixed them:
       
      Clover UEFI Bootloader Disapepared from Boot Menu
      So first I figured out what was going on with the UEFI bootloader disappearing.  I tried complete wipes of the APFS drive, Reinstalling Clover on the EFI partition.  Nothing.  Finally Found the solution here thanks to @chibabah
      Link removed:
      Tips:
      1)    If you have lots of connected drives use the Page Up and Page Down key to scroll through results of bcfg boot dump
      2)    Use Disk Utility or Terminal before hand to verify the exact UUID of your EFI system drive that has disappeared.
       
       
      Post Motherboard Update
      Now this seems to apply to a lot of people in the community who have updated and unknowingly couldn’t boot their system, or in my case, couldn’t update the current OS to the latest version.  This seemed to apply to my ASUS Maximus X Code v 2203.
      Thanks @mattystonnie for your ACPI patch found here:
      Link removed:
       
      Can’t Install fresh version of Catalina 10.15.1
      So after almost giving up on not getting the latest Mojave Security update, I wondered if Catalina would have the same issues.  Well it had different issues.
      Stall - Virtual IOReturn ionvmecontroller
      AppleACPICPU stalling
      Requiring EC device
      So I found this reddit thread thanks @dracoflar:
      https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/den28t/whats_new_in_macos_catalina/
       
      And applied the SSDTTime.command create by @corpnewt @noone @rehabman available here:
      https://github.com/corpnewt/SSDTTime
       
      The SSDT-EC.aml file it created from my DSDT.aml was the FINAL KEY in allowing the Catalina Installer to complete.
       
      Tips:
      1)    If you haven’t already created a SSDT before, for example a custom USB SSDT, it is placed in your EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched/
      2)    In your config.plist under ACPI Check “AutoMerge” so that it is true.  This will automatically load any custom SSDT files from your patched folder.
       
      Apple Maps not loading
      This had been something that I had issues with before, more so with location services not working.  However, after several clones, and a succesful Catalina Install/User Migration, location services was fine, but Maps was a blank grey grid, couldn’t find an address, get directions, load satellite image.   Ended up being a corrupt User Library since other System Users had no issues using the application Maps.
      To fix this I used the following resources:
      https://appletoolbox.com/fix-corrupt-user-accounts-macos/
      1)
      Quit Maps
      Give Terminal Full Disk Access and the type:
      diskutil resetUserPermissions / `id -u`
       
      2)
      Deleting The Entire User Library Cache folder
      ~/Library/Caches
       
      3)
      Delete folder ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Maps/
       
      4)
      Restart Mac.  All these caches and temporary folders will repopulated themselves and Maps should resume working.  
       
      Installing Mojave 10.14.6 2019 Security Update
      This by far is the craziest of them all.  Whether the above things I implemented to my EFI or config.plist actually played a part or not in it finally working I guess I’ll never know.  But it is finally solved.  Simply by unplugging all drives.  Appears to be an issue with real macs too:
      https://bartechtv.com/macos-could-not-be-installed-on-your-computer-error-when-installing-mojave-on-hackintosh/
      Link removed:
      Didn’t have to go the terminal route as some did in the tonymac thread above.
       
      So since I have A LOT of drives I simply turned off my external enclosure, physically unplugged by 2nd NVME scratch drive, and disabled the SATA connectors in the BIOS.
       
      Low and behold after two restarts the Security update completed without a hitch or stall.
       
      After install I re-enabled/ connected/turned on all my drives, an no issues.  
       
      This must be a Mojave issue as I didn’t need to do this when installing Catalina from a USB installer.
       
      GPT header corruption has been detected
      And lastly for anyone out there with an ASUS Maximus Motherboard that has updated to the latest BIOS.  There seems to be an issue with external drives plugged into the PC (mine is in the back USB C port)  During boot the PC can’t POST and forces user into setup.
       
      I know there is nothing wrong with the GPT partition as I’ve run multiple tests in windows and mac.  And it’s a known issue with other ASUS motherboard users:
      https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?114955-GPT-header-corruption
       
      Temporary Solution:
      Until a BIOS update addresses this, go to your BIOS settings
      BOOT\Boot Configuration
      And change the Boot Sector (MBR/GPT) Recovery Policy to “Auto Recovery”

      UEFI - ON CSM: Disabled AHCI Integrated Graphics: AUTO Primary Graphics: iGFX Memory: 1024M DVMT: MAX Working
      Everything (App Store, Messenger, FaceTime, etc.)  
      Not working
      For AirDrop and Handoff you need a compatible Broadcom Wifi+Bluetooth card. I bought a BCM94360 card with a PCI-E adapter, it's OOB. Currently waiting for arrive, will report back.  
      Issues
      Sometimes I hear crackling sound (just on Catalina 10.15.1, didn't happen on 10.15 or before) If you don't have this issue please let me know.  
      Before updating to newer versions, update your kexts! (and Clover if necessary)
      Generate a new serial with Clover Configurator
      Download the Clover folder: Z77P-D3-catalina.zip
       
      - SMBIOS: iMac13,2: iMac (27-inch, Late 2012)
      - ig-platform-id: 0x0166000b
       
      - There is no need for Whatevergreen.kext 
      - The HD 4000 is working with- or without a graphics card (headless with IntelQuickSync)
      - RX 5700 (ASUS RX 5700 GAMING OC 8 G) working OOB, just delete WhateverGreen.kext (causes black screen)
       
      Triple-Boot Win 10 and Linux (in my case it's Manjaro) (on one drive)
      Make sure your drive is in GPT and you're using UEFI If you have Win 10 installed then: Open diskmgmt (Disk Management), then Shrink your existing Win 10 partition to create two new for Mac and (if you want) for Linux If you have Mac installed: Create a new partition for Linux and (or) Windows in FAT Simply format that partition in Linux, Windows, or Mac installer, then install the OS Copy your working Clover folder to the system's EFI drive If it's automatically booting to Win, open cmd in administrator and write: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi That's it, automatically booting to Clover and you can select your OS If your Linux doesn't show up in Clover make sure you have GUI/Scan/Linux=Yes in config.plist  
      Mount your EFI on Windows:
      Open CMD in administrator and write: mountvol b: /s Use Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator to manage the folder Pictures:
