Looking for help getting Mavericks to install on a Lenovo Thinkpad L440 Type 20AS-S05700


When trying to boot from usb it immediately reboots before I can even change the boot perimeters 


I've attached the results from CPUZ in both txt and html format.


any help would be greatly appreciated.  


I've run into an issue on several models (a lenovo Thinkcentre m72e and a HP dv6) where it does the quick reboot. 


Is this the "early restart" that some people have mentioned and if it is how to go about patching the installer usb?



Was able to boot installer with the following commands

xpcm-free -v –npci=0x2000

not able to use the same command to boot after install tho as of yet

I will try both when I get home.  


like usually I don't even get to the first menu that pops up for the bootloader.  I thought my usb had gotten corrupted at first but I tried it on a machine I had successfully installed it on before and the bootloader menu came up fine on that computer.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
