Installing Niresh Mavericks 10.9 on Lenovo Ideapad Z710

Question

Hi to everyone who plan to install Mavericks on Lenovo Z710...

 

Hardware description is:

CPU: Intel i7

LAN: Qualcomm Atheros AR 8171/8175 PCI-E

WLAN: Intel Wireless-N 7260

VGA: Intel HD Graphics 4600 / NVIDIA GeForce GT740M

 

After several trying I successfully installed Mavericks on my Ideapad. Here is the guide you could follow:

 

1. I used a 8GB Kingstone USB and write the Niresh Mavericks image on my Windows 8 PC.

2. I have started a brand new hard disk to keep the original in safe.

3. Installed the Win 8.1 at first. During the install process I've prepared 3 partitions (Win, OS X, Documents) but formated only one for Windows, the others could be formated with OS X disk manager.

4. Windows install finished, all the PC works perfectly.

5. Switch your PC off and plug the 8GB USB and switch the PC on with the recovery button (next to the power button) to reach the boot menu.

6. Boot from your USB Key. In short time you will receive the boot menu.

7. Choose the Mavericks install and use the flag xpcm-free and press Enter. After around 2 minutes you will see the Installer menu.

8. Use the disk manager to format the necessary partition for Mavericks and for the Documents. (I have formated the doc partition to Fat to use it as a bridge between the two OSs).

9. Click customize (or something else on the left corner) to select the components to install.

10. The default parameters almost good but some changes must be done. These are the follows:

- Back up all the VGA kext (ATI, Intel, NVidia) by selecting them.

- The IGPEnabler must be selected also but the GraphicsEnabler must be unselected.

- Modify some points under the Chipset settings:

- Click Disabler to select and unselect the NullCPUPowermanagement...

- Select 10.8.1 under the AppleACPIPlatform.

Settings are finished. Click install. The Install process takes a bit more then 22 minutes...

- When it finished reboot your PC and remove the USB Key.

- Select Maverics to boot... The boot process takes around 2 minutes

 

You need the Hackintosh Vietnam Tool and MacPois0n to copy the kext files.

 

- Start the Vietnam Tool

- Go to the Chameleon - Config and select the HD4400/4600 Mobile

- Go to Kext - Network - Ethernet and select Atheros,

- Go to Kext - Graphics and select HD4400/HD4600 DP/HDMI

Click Install

 

- Start MacPois0n

- Find Drivers - Sound and select Voodoo HDA 2.8.5

- Click Install

 

Reboot your computer and enjoy...

If you start with recovery button you could select the required OS (to Windows you must select the Reserved for blablabla...)

 

There is two HW components which is not working: The Intel Wireless-N 7260 card :( If somebody have solution to start it please share with us. Otherwise the compatible card must be installed, and the NVidia GeForce...

Thanks for this. I have the same model laptop and this will help me tremendously. I've futzed with OS X virtual machines but this will be my first foray into a full install.

    • please help me i am new to this.. i downloaded 4.7 gb file its in .tar.gz format i want to create a boot able flash drive .. but how should i select the dmg file
    • Exactly the same here.  also I'm trying a lot of boot flags and EFI files from another DMGs, but also I'm still Waiting for the solution.
    • Hello, friends, I need your help. I am using  Motherboard: Asus H81M-CS Processor:  Intel Core i3-4130 Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400 I connected monitor via VGA port.   Everything is working great. Only issue right now I am having is graphics with VGA Port. Can any one suggest me to solve this issue?
    • It's because when you update, the kernel is replaced & so are the kexts. You need to either know how to use Terminal to copy the files after booting into your USB OR hook up your Start Disk Hard Drive to another Hack or Mac & copy over the proper kernel to System/Library/Kernels/ & also use kextwizard to install the kexts required as well & then repair cache. It's not that complicated if you have another Mac or Hack(intosh) to connect your drive to. There are some tutorials online. I'm by no means a pro at this at all, but I couldn't believe no one had replied to anyone here. I'm actually in the exact same situation, just finished updating my Yosemite Zone 10.10 to 10.10.5 through AppStore & it won't boot back in, then I remembered when I did this last time I had to connect my HD to another mac & copy over files, but I can't remember exact files so I came here to look for them & found this thread. I have been successful in getting an old MSI Platinum35 mobo with the 771/775 mod & Xeon x5460 with AMD 6850 running Sierra. I have been successful getting a newer MSI A88XM Gaming Mobo with x4 760k & AMD 6670 running Mavericks, then Yosemite, then High Sierra, and recently tested Sierra & it worked too. One thing though is that with Sierra & High Sierra the screen flickered different colors & I needed to download a thing called SwitchResZ & change the setting from "Billions of Colors" to "Millions of Colors" & it fixed it both times, even after I uninstalled it, the screen flickering was gone,.. So I have been through a few different processes (not including the updates like 10.10 to 10.10.5) But I am the farthest thing from a pro. Just followed tutorials, googled  & used distros, I think DeeKay was first one for Mavericks, then Yosemite Zone, Sierra Zone, & finally High Sierra Zone. But my digi 002r worked on all with the AVID 003 family 11.1.3 driver, except when it came to high sierra. For some reason it has sync issues with Midi/audio. Says something about not recognizing clock speed of 43,121Khz or something (cuz it should be 44.1Khz, or 48Khz etc) But it only happens on High Sierra. On Yosemite I had to do a trick cuz the play bar's timing was off, to fix it I went into bios & changed my multiplier from 100 to 103 so instead of my cpu running at 3.6Ghz, it was like 3.9Ghz. But for some reason that fixed it & Yosemite was stable, rarely (if ever) did it crash. But Sierra crashes all the time so I can't make music on it anymore, for some reason I don't think it was like this at first...maybe something I installed. Only reason why I changed was to keep up with Logic X updates. My Sierra build is up to date with Logic X 10.4 & Digi 002r runs great (11.1.3 driver) but like I said it crashes alot & I don't know why. So my thought was to return to Yosemite 10.10 & update to 10.10.5 like I did b4 & downgrade Logic X to 10.3 or 10.2.4(can't remember). So I got to find those files & instructions again to put the proper kernel & texts back that the update erased. That's what ya'll need to do as well. When I find it I will come back & edit my post or just post a new one.
