Yes i have change bios to:

  1. Set the initial memory of the kernel to 64M (this is very important, there are pits);
  2. In the CPU settings, disable VT-d;
  3. Only use UEFI mode;
  4. Disable Security Chip
  5. Disable Anti Theft Module
  6. Disable TPM
But not working.
what is the date of your bios version?

My bios date is 03/26/2015, revision FBKTB0AUS

Now i have made a new install disk and use your folder of (Lenovo M93p "Tiny" mini PC i5 4570t, i7 4765t Yosemite-Catalina).

But my CPU is 4460S; the installation working but i have some problems:

1. The wifi card not detected
2. The OS upgrade not working (download it but not install)

I should do further tests and then I'll update you.

From boot I can delete or hide: ?
1. Boot FileVault Prebooter from Preboot
2. Boot macOS Install Prebooter from Preboot

Or can it create problems with Mojave updates and operation?

Thanks.

You should remove the “hide volumes” for the updates then you can add them again if you don’t want to see them after the update. WiFi card is not the BCM94352HMB? If it’s intel it is not supported but the LAN 1217 is supported for a wired connection. Remove the SDDT.aml for a different CPU.

Update :
The machine has been working smoothly for a few months, I had to wipe it once because I messed up some config files and it was beyond my knowledge to repair it.

I put a Broadcom BCM94352HBM wifi/bt card in it. But I'm a bit afraid to mess up the OS once more while trying to get it working.
I guess I'll try when I'll be bored to have that long ethernet cable across the room;)

Okay, little update, the wifi and bluetooth are working. (the bluetooth led is working perfectly, I don't know if there is a wifi led, but if it's there, it doesn't work)
I have some trouble to understand where I have to put the region (EU).
But since it works with US region, I don't really care.

I first tried with the kexts related to the wifi from the github of feelinglucky in clover. Since it worked quite well, I downloaded the latest versions of the kexts needed and installed them in the library with KextBeast.

I've been running that way since monday without any major problems

Hi, I succeeded hackintosh on my M93P tiny thanks to your EFI file. I'm now finding the wifi module. From taobao, there are 2 models of BCM94352 with FRU numbers 03T7135 and 03T8125, with the same Lenovo P/N: 20200078.
From the document of M93P Tiny, it states that the FRU of BCM4352 must be 03T8125. I wonder whether i can use the 03T7135, because it is 15 yuan cheaper than 03T8125.
What model are you using?
Anybody has experience in using FRU 03T7135 in M93p as queried here? Thank you.
