    [Guide] Lenovo ThinkPad T440S

    It appears that there may be some additional updates that need to be performed for 10.4.14 to behave properly. I have not updated, so I have no personal experience with this, but since you have already updated you might try the advice located here.

    BIOS modification is not necessary. You need to be on BIOS 2.36 which does not contain a whitelist so the WIFI/Bluetooth card can be changed out. If you have a higher BIOS, it's still possible to downgrade. Search in this thread for instructions.

    I'm not certain, but I believe that 2.36 is the only T440s BIOS that is whitelist-free. From what I understand, it was not intentional on the part of Lenovo but was released without a whitelist in place.

    [Guide] Lenovo ThinkPad T440S

    I started with the original buttonless trackpad and it worked fine, but the experience was clunky...literally. I changed it out for the T450 trackpad by Synaptics and the tracking is improved I think and the physical buttons make for a much better experience. Swapping it out isn't too bad, but I...

    If the stock WiFi/Bluetooth card is installed, then WiFi will not work since it is not supported. You'll need to change it out with a Broadcom BCM94352Z, but make sure you're getting the correct one. There are two versions. You need the one with two slots rather than one. Before changing out the...

    Laptops for Mojave

    The Lenovo ThinkPad T440s is a little bit older but is an outstanding choice. I picked up a barely-used T440s from an executive via eBay, swapped out the WiFi/Bluetooth card and have a 100% compatible Mojave install. Sleep, sound, WiFi, Bluetooth, iMessage, App store...100% functionality. 15+...

    [Guide] Lenovo ThinkPad T440S

    Does your USB boot successfully? If so, copy the EFI dir from the USB and paste it into the EFI partition of your HDD/SSD. That's what I had to do in order to finally get mine booting properly. To view the EFI dir of the HDD/SSD, you need to run a couple of commands in Terminal. In terminal...

    I had this problem of either freezing or entering a boot loop like you state. What worked for me was replacing the EFI folder in the EFI partition on the SSD with the one on the boot USB. I describe how I did it here.

    [Guide] Lenovo ThinkPad T440S

    There is a post where another user did just what you have done. He took the old card that he had removed and used it as a template to modify the new card to fit. I haven't tried it so can't provide any personal recommendation, but he seems to have been successful doing so. And, by the way, it's...

    Thanks for confirming! I thought that is what was meant but before updating wanted to make sure there wasn't something that needed to be done that I didn't know how to do.

    When you say "rebuild kexts" is that just flushing the kext cache and reboot?

    Which guide did you follow, the guide in the OP or the Mojave guide on page 13? I'm by no means an expert, but I see a lot of kexts in Clover>kexts>Other that don't need to be in your Clover installer, and both FakeSMC.kext and VirtualSMC.kext is present. Which are you trying to use?

    SUCCESS! I'm posting this so that if someone else is running into this issue they may be able to try what finally worked for me. I'm currently running 10.14.2. After spending the last couple of days trying to figure out the audio issue, I booted into the BIOS just to confirm my settings, and...
