Lenovo G780 i7 Ivy bridge Kexts+Extra 1.0

About This File

All kexts and files needed to proper install and boot G780 with ivy bridge i7 (only for 17" 1600x900 - patched dsdt with dual link). Maybe will work for 15" too. Who knows....

Pre-install: update to latest bios 5ECN96WW, disable nvidia in bios (or you need to delete all NV* kexts from /S/L/E), Disable UEFI, select everything whats possible to Legacy mode smile.png

1. Create installer with myhack 3.2 beta 8

2. replace the Extra folder with this one.

3. Install all kexts from /Extra/Extensions to /S/L/E using kext wizard (yes you will have them duplicated but thats ok). Repair permissions and rebuild cache

4. Connect USB to port located on right side where the optical drive is.

5. No boot options needed (-f = if you did not rebuild the cache). Full resolution with QE/CI installer will appear. Install Mac OS

6. Reboot, boot from installer, selected installed disk and use "-x -f USBLegacyOff=Yes"

7. Copy Extra folder from installdisk to installed ML

8. install all kexts from /Extra/Extensions to /S/L/E and delete the /Extra/Extensions folder. Repair permissions, rebuild cache.

9. Boot and enjoy.

Update to 10.8.5: Use Combo update, rollback AppleACPIPlatform from this file

Not working: Wifi, FN Brightness, Nvidia, touchpad after wakeup

PS: In case you don't have QE/CL try different efi string injection for the HD4000. If the USB disk wont appear in boot menu restart using CTRL+ALT+DEL. This laptop does POST boot so fast that my USB HDD won't make it at first time after turning on using power button.

Installed everything like you told in this tutorial. 10.8.4 works great, exept the Touchpad, which I fixed with this one. After the Combo Update and reinstalling AppleACPIPlatform from your file Touchpad doesn't work anymore. Of course I also reinstalled the Touchpad kexts. Any help please? :)

To enable speedstep and turboboost:

?

1.Download and install?http://www.osx86.net/files/file/197-appleintelcpupowermanagement-kext-10-9-dp1/

2.Remove NullCpuPowerManagement.kext from /Extra/Extensions/ (if you have it there) and from /S/L/E

3.Remove myhack.kext from /S/L/E

4. Using Chameleon wizard set your smbios to MacBook Pro 8.3

5. Rebuild cache

6. Restart

If you want to check if the speedstep/turboboost is working install fakeSMC with HW monitor.?

HI, Mikoman

?

I have several tests on my G780 installed on MAC, but could not succeed. It gave me a lot of inspiration with your installation package. I know a lot of knowledge about installing hackintosh, which I did not know before. I must say, really thank you.

Now, I successfully installed the Mavericks in on my G780. However, I still do not understand why, Bluetooth, card reader and a microphone can not work properly.

?

Bluetooth, I used IOBluetoothFamily.KEXT, and i can see the logo bluetooth in the status bar, nothing more, I can not find any Bluetooth devices.

?

Card Reader, I can only see the information in the system info USB2.0-CRW this device. I tried AnyCardReader.kext, voodoSDHC.kext without success.

?

Microphone, to be honest, the use voodoHDA is possible, but, in that case, the speaker's voice will be very small, I still like your appleHDA.kext, its voice is so perfect that a comparison with?windows 8 .

?

I'm not sure you have time to try, is not you also have the same problem. Or is my installation is wrong?

?

sorry for my english.

Hi,

?

For the BT i actualy replaced the stock wifi/BT card for the one without BT to have wifi working (patched bios with disabled wifi blacklist). So i don't have BT anymore.?

I never tested the mic-in jack. I always used integrated mic so i can't help you with that. Only advice is to go and try different kext :)

The same for card reader. I do not use it. So i never tryed to find a working kext. It was piece of hell just to make work all the basic components :)

forum and forum, try and try....again and again, ok, i can use the bluetooth and integrated mic(but not input mic), After some time, in order to get the built-in wireless, I give up Bluetooth (BCM4313), because I want to install AR9285, I flash the BIOS whitelist, WIFI OK.
?
But I never been able to successfully use the SD card reader, not vga, not HDMI .

@mondi - there is no kext for the SD card reader. Also there is no way to activate nvidia card so thats why vga and hdmi will not work.?

?

@horscht - Where and when the error appears? Try reformating the target drive and check all settings for the disk.?

the break comes on most 3-4 minutes before ending the installation (i see the minutes left)

?

i have formatted every times after booting from the install-usb.

and what OSX are you trying to install?

Try to skip the step with copying extra folder to your /S/L/E folder. Leave it clean. Boot with proper flags -v -x USBLegacy=Off

Any chance you can get a log from installer? This would tell us the problem.?

Please try creating fresh installer with latest MyHack and use DSDT file only.?

This should work

?

Or you can try just create fresh installer and do not copy anything, remove NV* and intel HD drivers.

This must work.?

it's pretty interesting, but I forced wi-fi wpa to work.. the most interesting thing is that the wi-fi can work only with 10.8.2, not even 10.8.5. Thought it would be interesting for you.

Anyway, thank you!

P.S. touchpad works perfectly on 10.8.2
