[GUIDE] Install Yosemite on a Thinkpad T430

Question

This guide is intended for the Lenovo Thinkpad T430 with Intel Graphics HD 4000. We’ll be using clover (it doesn’t matter if standard, uefi or efi, and it’ll probably work
with Chameleon too, but I haven’t tried it).
 
PC Specs:
 
Lenovo Thinkpad T430. Intel Graphics HD 4000, 1024mb vram, 1600x900 (but I also attached the required kext for the 1366x768 variant). Intel Core i5 Haswell 2.6 GHz.
 
What works:
 
Everything, except:
  • Bluetooth (I think I found out a guide which let you set up it, but I didn’t really cared about it, as I wasn’t going to use bluetooth anyway).
  • WiFi (yeah, it never works no matter which laptop you choose -except in some very rare cases-).
Instructions:
 
  1. Install your OS X Yosemite distribution (I chose Niresh’s Yosemite Zone because of its native support patch for MBR, as I have a Windows 7 partition and didn’t wanted to mess with it). I STRONGLY advise you to choose a clean copy of it, with just Clover (you may find one over Kickass.so), in case you don’t need MBR support. It’s cleaner and gives to less headaches (although I have to say that this distro is pretty good). In case you opt for the clear way, you will also have to download the Clover installer package from sourceforge; and Kext Wizard.
  2. Now, do whatever you have to do to make a bootable USB drive, and boot from it, but, and this is important, if you’re using clover, and until I say something different, don’t boot directly, because you will be stuck at the black screen. This is what you have to do:
    1. Go to options in the clover boot menu (normally a gear that’s under the OS selection).
    2. Then choose Graphics (or something like that, I don’t remember).
    3. Deactivate InjectIntel, and in FakeID, write 0x????????????, being ??????????? random numbers that you choose, obviously, different than 0. This way the installer won’t detect your graphic card and use generic drivers.
  3. You will be at the installation wizard. Install it:
    • If you’re using the clear way, do it normally.
    • If you’re using Yosemite Zone distro, which is easier, choose to install Clover (standard if you don’t know what are UEFI or EFI) and, if you want battery percentage, look for the patch. It’s somewhere between all those options.
  4. Once the installation is completed, there are two cases, depending on the source of installation:
    • The clear way: Boot again as stated previously (with the 0x????... thing) with your USB drive, but this time choose your OS X installation hard disk. Install Clover from the package you previously downloaded and with the default settings.
    • The not-so-clear way: Your PC will have clover already installed, so just boot it up as stated previously (with the 0x????... thing).
  5. Now, use Kext Wizard (included in Yosemite Zone) to install the Kexts that are in Extensions. Also, put DSDT.aml in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. From the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri, go to the folder that applies to your resolution and install the kext inside it, but only the one that applies to you, not the rest.
  6. And... reboot. Voilà. You have you’re computer 100% working.

Now, if you plug some headphones in it, you will see that there’s so much noise. To solve this, go to Settings, VoodooHDA and choose on the switcher on the left

2. Headphones (Black Left), and reduce Input Gain to 0.
 
And that’s all. Enjoy!

I've also a attached the instructions in a PDF done with TextEdit in my new Hackintosh ;)

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
