[Guide] Lenovo Y50 (UHD or 1080p) using Clover UEFI

Rebooting from Windows 10 would create a bootmgfw.efi and a new bootmgfw-orig.efi so I cannot use Clover after restarting from Windows.

Windows will not touch bootmgfw-orig.efi.

It will only recreate bootmgfw.efi if you're not booting Windows via the latest bootmgfw.efi. (eg. make sure bootmgfw-orig.efi is the latest as provided by the Windows updates).

There are also ways to manipulate the EFI boot list (although I find most of them very buggy).

You did not install all kexts as required.

Run ./download.sh and ./install_downloads.sh.

Also noted:
- guide uses/suggests MacBookPro11,1 (you're using MacBookPro11,2)

Well I am sure I did.. But it seems I have 2 booting parts which I found out one is unused.

Can you tell me what I am missing?

Also Changed to MacBookPro11,1

EDIT:
Heh ok. It's working .. Thx RehabMan.. awesome guide and quick help :)

Need some help.
I searched trough thread found nothing of help.
My audio is working fine, built in speakers and plugged in headphones. But my mic wont detect, doesn't even show up in preferences. Tried 3 different headsets, tried my headset on macbook pro and they work there. tried the steps for fixing audio ( it was working before anyway). But nothing helped. If you have any advice i would very much appreciate it.

Edit: my y adapter seems to be faulty, or too thick to set in y50 port. Ignore this untill i try another

The differences depend on whether you have UHD or 1080p screen. The differences are documented clearly in post #1.

Most people are getting BCM94352Z from Dell. Read here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-laptop-support/160258-where-can-i-get-bcm94352z.html

Ok, so I updated to 10.10.4. Everything during update went smooth. But when I rebooted the screen at login screen went black.

Although the boot process went well the screen was black and only sometimes it flashed with 'normal' picture. My guess is that the update broke graphic kext.

I use 1080p Lenovo. Do you have any ideas what could help?
