    Shutdown fix not working for Lenovo T430 DSDT

    If it's not much of a trouble, can you take a look at the code I sent alongside my first post and check where this snippet should go? Early, middle, last, with/without IF statements? Thanks for your continued and valued help :)

    [Guide] Lenovo ThinkPad T430 (Clover)

    The T430 is a very capable laptop with its very own shortcomings. One of the biggest being Digital Rights Management (DRM). You see, the folks at Lenovo don't want you, the user, to replace some existing hardware with non-whitelisted ones. And you've guessed it already: the half miniPCI card...

    Shutdown fix not working for Lenovo T430 DSDT

    Yeah. It could be unrelated to macOS (probably is) and it's not a problem per-se of the installation. Anyway, I've made few changes in the BIOS yesterday and today I'm ready to test them out. I'll be writing the guide as well on a different thread.

    Shutdown fix not working for Lenovo T430 DSDT

    I don't know what you mean by "auto restart after shutdown", but I went into the BIOS and disabled any setting that resembles such a thing, for example: WoL, Wake on USB, etc. I'm re-patching DSDT and checking again. About the code you posted: Not sure where I should plug it in. Top of the...

    [Guide] Lenovo T430 - El Capitan

    Hey again, Sorry for the late reply. It was already late yesterday and today I had tons of things to do, and one of them was to try out all the wonderful suggestions that you mentioned. And I have good news :) So, I got the T430 to work with Sierra. 95% working I would say. FireWire and...

    Shutdown fix not working for Lenovo T430 DSDT

    Hi all, Anybody installed Sierra on a Lenovo T430 and having problems with shutdown? Mine resembles a reboot when I try shutting down. I tried applying "Fix Shutdown" and "Halt Enabler" in Clover, but that didn't help. Then I tried to patch DSDT with RehabMan's fix (from here), but seems the...

    Yup, I remember that part that you wrote in another guide. I think your way is better and you explained nicely. I'm going to copy the important kexts to S/L/E and report back soon.

    [Guide] Lenovo T430 - El Capitan

    That's strange, isn't it? I mean, I used this same USB to install macOS Sierra on other laptops and it always performed flawlessly. Installer then system boot, all good. I also can see FakeSMC under CLOVER/kexts/Other. Might it be that it's not being loaded? I will go ahead and copy it to...

    Here we go. ZIP prepared after F4 and F2. preboot is under misc/ and I also included the photo where boot is stuck. As I explained, the next screen which appears after this long waiting time is just the Apple logo and the loader underneath, not yet filling up. While I waited, however, the...

    Hmpf.. Really? Thanks for the link, but I didn't forget it from last night. I've been reading it but nothing jumps to mind. Want to help or just police the forum? PS: I intend to write a post about my experience so others may benefit from it. macOS Sierra on T430.

    [Guide] Lenovo T430 - El Capitan

    Alright. I have some updates now. The BIOS was reset to defaults and DVMT pre-alloc set to 64MB. DEP is active. I did everything from scratch and followed the guide to the letter. I re-extracted DSDT and re-patched including patch from post #47, as instructed. Installed DSDT and ran macOS...
