This Thread is basically just a Repost of my Original G580 - 20157 Clover Guide but updated for El Capitan: http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-laptop-guides/129423-guide-clover-efi-guide-g580-20157-a.html

DSDT and SSDT generated and patched with MaciASL (If you have another version of the G580 don’t use my DSDT or SSDT, but you can find the used Patches in my .zip at the bottom of this Post)


OS X 10.11
Intel Core i5 3230M
Intel HD4000 Graphics
4GB RAM

Realtek ALC269VC
Synaptics Touchpad

What’s working:
Audio via Speakers, Headphones and Mic (Using Clover on-the-fly patching and CodecCommander for sound after sleep)
Battery Percentage (Using ACPIBatteryManager)
Cardreader (Works OOB)
Synaptics Touchpad (Using RehabMan's VoodooPS2Controller, three finger gestures working after changing the Shortcuts for MissionControl in Systemsettings)
Webcam (Works OOB)
Fn-Keys for Play/Pause, Next Track, Previous Track and Volume work (cmd and option key were interchanged, but you can fix this in System Preferences>Keyboard>Special Keys)

Brightness (after applying RehabMan's Brightness Fix and using IntelBacklight.kext (Fn+Pos1 and Fn+Insert))
All USB Ports (2x USB3.0 OOB, 1x USB2.0 OOB)
Atheros LAN (Using ALXEthernet.kext)
Wifi (Applied a whitelist patch to the BIOS and changed the Card to a BCM94322HM8L. Patch from:
http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Forum-Wifi-WWAN-Whitelist-Removal)
Intel HD4000 (Needs ig-platform-id to work, full QE/CI, gets detected by „About this Mac“ with 1536 MB)
Sleep with patched DSDT (Manually or by closing the Lid)
Speedstep with generated SSDT (Generated with MaciASL, P-States reached: 12, 22, 26, 28, 30, 32)


Thanks to Forum-Member „themaskofwraith“ and his Lenovo G580 20150 thread, which was a big help installing my G580 and setting it up the first time.

What’s not working:

Everything works :D :headbang:

STEP 1 - Clover Installer-Stick:
One big advantage of Clover is, that we can create an Installer-Stick which won’t need any bootflags, to boot the Installer and the Installation.
I recommend to put the Clover.pkg you downloaded from Sourceforge on the Installer USB-Stick, because Wifi might (probably will) not work.
At the bottom of my Post you can find my .zip with all the files you need.

Just create an Install Mac OS X Stick with help of tonymacx86’s Guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...ublic-beta-installation-usb-using-clover.html
Stop at the part where you copy his config.plist and Kexts.
Put all Kexts from G580-20157/Clover Files/kexts/10.11/ in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11/ Directory, you don’t want any other Kexts in there, and replace the config.plist in EFI/CLOVER/ with the one from G580-20157/Clover Files/. (Additionally you can add my own Clover-Theme in the themes folder, just copy
simpledark from G580-20157/Clover Files/themes/ to EFI/CLOVER/themes/).
Go to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ and paste the DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml from G580-20157/Clover Files/ACPI/patched/

(Only use my DSDT and SSDT if you have the G580 - 20157 with the exact same CPU. Otherwise you have to edit/create your own DSDT and SSDT using MaciASL and the patches from: http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/master
The needed Patches are listed in G580-20157/Needed DSDT Patches.rtf)
After you’ve done all this, your CLOVER Directory should look like this:

Screenshot El Capitan.png



STEP 2 - Installation:
Start your G580 and press F2 to get in the BIOS.
Use the Arrow-Keys to navigate to the right. Load the default Settings. Exit and save Changes.
Press F12 to choose your USB-Stick.
Boot into the OS X Installer. Be patient, it may take some Time for the Installer to load. (If it won't load, boot the Installer in verbose)
Use Disk Utility to format your HDD as GPT, Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Now Close Disk Utility and click on Install Mac OS X.
The Installer will copy the Systemfiles to your HDD and then restart the Computer.
Again press F12 and choose your USB-Stick.
Boot the OS X Installer again. The Installer will now automatically install the System on your HDD, and create a Recovery HD if possible (when you have Windows installed on the same HDD it won’t create a Recovery HD).
The Installer will restart the Computer again.
Once again press F12 and choose your USB-Stick.
This Time choose the Partition you Installed Mac OS X on (If it won't boot use verbose).

STEP 3 - Post-Installation:
After Configuring you Mac open Terminal and run the following command:
Code:
[FONT=Helvetica]diskutil list[/FONT]
Look for your EFI Partition. It should be disk0s1. If not change the next command to fit your EFI Partition and press enter, type your password and press enter again (You will need a password to use the sudo command)
Code:
[FONT=Helvetica]sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 dev/rdisk0s1[/FONT]

Install Clover to your EFI Partition with the following Settings:
Install for UEFI booting only
Install Clover to ESP
Driver64UEFI > EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 and PartitionDxe-64
Install Clover Preference Pane

Your EFI Partition will be mounted when Clover finished installing.
Open your EFI Partition, and do the same as in STEP 1:
Put all Kexts from G580-20157/Clover Files/kexts/10.11 in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11/ Directory, you don’t want any other Kexts in there, and replace the config.plist in EFI/CLOVER/ with the one from G580-20157/Clover Files/ (Additionally you can add my own Clover-Theme in the themes folder, just copy
simpledark from G580-20157/Clover Files/themes/ to EFI/CLOVER/themes/).
Go to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched and paste the DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml from G580-20157/Clover Files/ACPI/patched/

(Only use my DSDT and SSDT if you have the G580-20157 with the exact same CPU. Otherwise you have to edit/create your own DSDT and SSDT using MaciASL and the patches from: http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/master
The needed Patches are listed in G580-20157/Needed DSDT Patches.rtf).
Next install DummyHDA and CodecCommander in /S/L/Eusing a Kextinstaller of your own choice (I use Kext Wizard).


Last steps:
I recommend to rebuild the caches and repair permissions, you can do this with these commands in Terminal:

Code:
[FONT=arial]sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/[/FONT]
Code:
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/
Code:
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/

When done rebuilding your Cache, restart your G580. It will now boot completely on its own and everything should work :)

You now have a fully working G580-20157 (Except for Wifi and Bluetooth, depending on your configuration). :thumbup:

Done! :headbang:

P.S. If you have any questions I will try to answer them as good and fast as I can.

UPDATE 1:
Some Changes needed to get Sleep and Sound working again coming from Yosemite.
All Files updated to newest Version.

UPDATE 2:
Changed to XCPM (Kernel Power Management). Now reaching a few more P-States: AICPUPMI: CPU P-States [ 12 19 22 26 27 28 29 30 32 ]
Updated the "G580-20157 El Capitan.zip" to now contain the new config.plist for XCPM.

UPDATE 3:
Updated the "G580-20157 El Capitan.zip" to contain a new version of the DummyHDA, with the needed Patch for 10.11.4

Thank You

It appears to be patched (missing EHCx->EH0x rename, perhaps more). You should test it.

DSDT editing is a post-install task.

Read what u asked me to. And fixed my wifi bluetooth sound :) Thank You. my question now is the trackpad. Multitouch is not working. two finger scroll. when i grep ps2 it shows this

Code:
MacBook-Pro:~ maheshsilwal$ kextstat|grep -y ps2
   36    2 0xffffff7f80ee2000 0xe000     0xe000     org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Controller (1.8.19) DD75691B-E4D0-35E9-80D3-82A489BBE79A <11 7 5 4 3 1>
   69    0 0xffffff7f80f06000 0x6000     0x6000     org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Keyboard (1.8.19) A229EDD1-F8B6-3837-B0A4-67D8715D10D5 <37 36 7 6 5 4 3 1>
   71    0 0xffffff7f80f00000 0x4000     0x4000     org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Mouse (1.8.19) 1C5CD4A5-AFFB-3C4F-9735-C5CE3B62E0D7 <37 36 5 4 3>

I see there is no trackpad is it the reason why the multitouch is not working
