Hello everyone!

At the moment i´m about to run Mountain Lion on my Laptop.
My laptop is Lenovo Thinkpad L430 with following specs:

CPU: Intel Core i3 3110m
Memory: DDR3-1600 4GB x 2
Graphics: Intel HD4000 (8086:0166) (works in full resolution 1600x900)
Audio: Realtek Alc3202
Ethernet: Realteak
Harddisk: mSata SSD Crucial M4 128GB

1. MacOS via UniBeast with GraphicsEnabler=no, boot from Unibeast usb
2. Some kexts via Multibeast Easy Beast, GraphicsEnabler=no, ApplePS2Controller, Lnx2Mac kext and VoodooHDA 2.7.3 + Voodoo Battery and VoodooPS2 (to get the Touchpad work as a mouse and to get the nub working)
3. Create and edit org.chamgeleon.plist, put there GraphicsEnabler=no
4. Reboot, boot from Unibeast usb and add this to to yours boot.plist to make video card work propely.

Code:

<key>device-properties</key> <string>7f0000000100000001000000730000000200000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000004006601140000006800640061002d0067006600780000000d0000006f6e626f6172642d31</string>
What's working right now:
-Video, 1600x900 QE/CI
-Ethernet Adapter
-Webcam (Out of Box)
-Battery status
-Audio (Works but i need to fix the build in mic and need to check the headphone and mic combo)
- edit: Bluetooth works now
-fixed USB 2.0 by changing bios setup
I need help with creating a DSDT with right keyboard layout and usable FN Keys (Audio works), and to get multitouch to work on my touchpad to use gestures. Also i would like to change my Wifi card (Intel) but i need a whitelist bios which i don´t find anywhere.

Hope you could understand everything. Would like to have a response.

I used this thread as an example:

For the wifi card I believe you need to find another lenovo model that has a wifi that is supported by mac os x and the bios in theory will accept the wifi card without modification.
