Thinkpad x201 1st Gen i5-540M + Intel HD

Recommended Posts

Hey all!


Recently wanted to get back into hackintoshing after being away since the 10.4~10.5 days.

Been having some problems getting the Niresh 10.9 Release Installer to boot, was wondering if anyone could shine some light on it.


-CPU: Intel i5-540M

-GPU: Intel HD Graphics (GMA HD 5700? Not too sure.)

-LAN: Intel Gigabit Ethernet

-Audio: CX20585

-WLAN: Intel 5100 (Not compatible)


Anyways, I have a feeling that I need to somehow remove AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext, but not too sure how I can do that.

Tried editing the BaseSystem.dmg, and that was a bust.


If anyone has a nice method for this generation of iGPU's, any help is nice!
