Hi,

I recently got a refurbished T430 and naturally, I wanted to have it run OS X. This isn't my first hackintosh and after a bit of reading, the install went more or less smoothly.

Two issues, however, remain:

First, my WIFI doesn't work. I bought an AR9285 because I read that it was supported pretty much out of the box for mavericks and up - and because it was cheap. On Linux, the card works just fine, on OS X it's not recognized at all. Audio refuses to work either.

I've patched my DSDT according to this guide. Kexts currently in use: FakeSMC, ACPIBatteryManager, IntelBacklight, VoodooPS2Controller, IntelMausiEthernet. Config.plist is attached.

One more thing;

For some reason, I cannot see the clover menu. The screen stays black, but I know the menu be there since I can either wait 5 seconds and have the machine boot normally or hit space to interrupt the countdown. I tried solving the problem myself but googling for clover blackscreen and the like gives so many false positives it's nearly impossible to find anything.

Thanks for your help. :)

Not supported OOB. Read FAQ: http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Audio refuses to work either.
Audio info also in FAQ.

Check your Clover bootlog to see which graphics mode it is using. Try setting config.plist/GUI/ScreenResolution. Try with CSM (legacy boot) enabled in BIOS. Make sure you don't have CsmVideoDxe.
