Re: Mavericks 10.9 on a T61(p)

just back to this forum after a few years, realize that my modified boot file might be still needed for our friends in this forum.

I put it on my own web server, so it will last forever

Re: Yosemite on x220

I'm not certain what is causing the problem, but I don't think using the trial version of CarbonCopyCloner is the issue. Can you boot the computer from your installation USB and then select the cloned drive at the bootloader? If this works it might just be necessary to install Clover on the cloned ...

Re: Yosemite on x220

If you have everything working properly on the first x220 the cloned drive should just work in the second x220 without re-installing Clover. I've always had good luck with CarbonCopyCloner making proper clones of all of the partitions and successfully creating a bootable clone. I cannot make that w...

In the Finder, pull down the "Go" menu, select "Computer" and navigate to EFI > CLOVER 5. Move the boot.png file to th...

Re: Yosemite on x220

You can change the appearance of the Clover boot screen by making changes to config.plist with Clover Configurator. I don't think there is a progress bar option like Chameleon, but you can show or hide various badges and components that appear on the boot screen. To make changes you can take these ...

Re: Yosemite on x220

Thank you again, everything is working now.
I am wondering --is there any flag in clover boot option that can hide all booting messages, instead, using logo and progressive bar? just like chameleon loader.

Re: Yosemite on x220

Actually, unchecking "Fix USB" is the only one to fix the issue.
But every time, I reboot, I need to reset it. Is there any way to set it permanently?

Re: Mavericks on X220

My display port is working without issues. How can I help you?
Could you post your DSDT and /Extra/Extensions files?

Does it matter to use active or passive display port cable - I use passive display port cable now.

Really appreciate.

Re: Mavericks on X220

Thanks a lot for the great tutorial. I spent some time and I figured out how to get the SD Card to load. You need to use 1180, e823 For the pci and vendor IDs (don't know which one is which) in VoodooSDHC.kext. Using 1180,823e did not work for me. I'm attaching the kext file so it's easier to downl...

Re: Mavericks on X220

Yes, 1180:e823 is the correct value to update VoodooSDHC.kext.
The problem is-
VoodooSDHC.kext works well under Mountain Lion, but hanging under Mavericks for x220
Even I recompile VoodooSDHC.kext under Mavericks from the latest source code with Apple latest XCode!

Re: Mavericks 10.9 on a T61(p)

Obviously you don't know that these GPUs have TWO outputs: - digital output for use on the (internal) LCD - analog output for use on the (external) VGA-port. Digital is the one that usually fails first (as probably in this case). Read up on these bad nVidia chips in 2007/2008 and the enormous class...

Re: Mavericks 10.9 on a T61(p)

If your date is 'older' than 08/08 (2008/August), your nVidia GPU is close to dying. I am kind of doubting about it, -- dead is dead, if works, it should work normally, it must be some software settings - I mention this before in this forum: 3.it is sometimes laggy while showing animation like tran...
