Hey, this is my first attempt at building a hackintosh so advice would be greatly welcomed.

I have a Lenovo T450 (specs in my bio) onto which I am trying to install Catalina using Clover 5118.

Have tried numerous combinations of config/kext and versions of Clover however the installer continuously gets to the Apple logo, shows the loading bar for a moment then restarts.

I have attached the -v output image below, it seems like it is a (0xE) error.

Please would someone look over my EFI folder and config.plist attached and let me know if there is something I am missing/should swap out?

The config file I used was from RehabMan (config_HD550_P530.plist) - as reccomented by shmilee's T450-Hackintosh guide.


Have added the SSDT-EC.emi to patched.

My Bios settings are as follows from Jsassu20 T450 Catalina guide:
- Wake on LAN disabled for all options
- Intel Rapid Start Disabled
- UEFI Only (CSM Enabled)
- Secure Boot disabled
- Display Memory set to 256 MB (512 is fine though)
- Virtualization enabled (VT + disabled)
- All PCIe devices enabled except for finger print sensor (Causes problems when waking from sleep)
- Memory Execution Prevention is enabled
- Hyper threading enabled
- My BIOS is unlocked so I can set DVMT to 64MB. I recommend doing this but it's not required.

For the transfer I am using a Sandisk Cruzer Blade 32GB.

Help would be really greatly appreciated as I keep going round in circles.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Alice
