Sierra & El Capitan on Lenovo Yoga 710
I have been working long trying to get a stable Hackintosh on this Laptop.
This will probably work on any Lenovo Yoga with NVME SSD and Intel Graphics.
If this How-To helped you please comment down below.
- Graphics, Brightness
- Keyboard including Hotkeys & Trackpad
Currently NOT working
- Dedicated Nvidia GTX 750MX (because of Optimus architecture)
- Internal WiFi – Intel 8260 (kext is beeing developed: AppleIntelWifiMVM)
- I2C Touchscreen
What you need
- A device that already runs OSX 😉
- USB Flash drive >= 8 GB
- Apple ID → macOS from AppStore
- Clover Configurator (optional but very helpful)
I don’t know whether you need to buy Mountain Lion to get 10.9+ for free. I did buy it and do not regret it.
- Create Bootable OSX Installer Stick with Unibeast – ElCapitan 6.x Sierra 7.x
- Generate a NVMe Kext using this script: RehabMan patch-nvme
- Download VoodoPS2Controller for your trackpad & keyboard to work
- Download my DSDT.aml and config.plist Lenovo Yoga 710 DSDT
- Mount the EFI Partition of the Stick (if it isn’t already)
- Move all Kernel Extensions to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.X
- Extract your DSDT and apply Patches (recommended)
→ If your Model exactly matches mine: Copy my DSDT.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ on the EFI Partition (may not work)
- Use my or the standard Clover config.plist and double check that the DSDT.aml is loaded correctly.
- Boot the stick and patiently wait for the Install screen.
DSDT Edits DSDT.aml
I extracted the DSDT File using Clover’s F4 Key function. Errors are corrected, patches applied for:
- Sleep Functionality
- NullEthernet.kext (AppStore Functionality with USB WiFi)
- IntelBacklight.kext (Adjustable Brightness) (for Sierra read this)
- ACPIBatteryManager.kext (Battery Percentage and Full Recognition)
- Volume Keys are mapped correctly
Clover Configuration config.plist
- DSDT loaded correctly
- Intel HD Graphics 520 injected
- C-States & P-States generated
- Kernel Patches
- Press spacebar in Clover → edit boot arguments
- Boot in verbose mode → observe → research symptoms
- Check BIOS Options
