Lenovo 3000 N200 Crashing On Bootloader Hand-Off To Darwin

Recommended Posts

PREFACE: I'm sorry there's A LOT of text x_x;;


Having this odd issue, and it's been board wide with every OSX distro 10.8.5 and up.


When attempting to load the Mavericks installer to update my this Hackintosh from Niresh Lion 10.7.2 to (now) Niresh Mavericks, Kexts/MKext and everything is loaded then attempts to hand off to Darwin, and the system immediately reboots. Darwin doesn't have time to even start so there's no log there.

Starting Darwin x86_64

Boot Args: (standard boot args) -v


I've tried the xcpm-free kernel thinking it was a power management issue, but got the same result.


I've also tried multiple bootflags, hoping something works, including -v -x -f USBBusFix=Yes npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=Yes|No cpus=1 maxmem=3062 and I've also started using Wait=Yes so I can get a readout that will allow me to actually read it.


This hackintosh is running Niresh Lion 10.7.2 almost flawlessly (although trivial little things don't work), including having QE/CI support with the correct kext installed. It just a tad bizarre. 


I've checked the data sheet on my processor, and it is 64-bit processor: here's the data sheet


Can anyone help? Much appreciated! :D

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU

          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
