Thank you for your response. The P1 is the same laptop as your X1 extreme with xeon CPU and quadro GPU being the only different components. I managed to get it to work after 3 day on playing around with the bios and the config.plist files. (thank you for providing them in you post.) I got a duel boot windows 10 pro/Mac OS Mojave. I got USB to work and I am trying to get wifi working now. Did you have to replace the wifi card in you X1 extreme or did you add a kext to get it to work? Thanks again
Hi menphis, I'd also have a p1 but 8750H and Quadro P1000. how did you actually got everything to work?
I'm struggling with my machine...

Hi guys, I just got a Thinkpad X1 Extreme 2019. I tried to install Hachintosh a couple times but always failed when the OS was installed by first reboot.

This is not the same machine and does not apply to X1E Gen2.

That means Hachintosh can not be installed on the machine by now?
