Excellent. Thanks for posting your details. Did you start with a unibeast install?
The next time you log into windows, do you mind checking out what manufacturer you have for your Lenovo Easycam? (using device manager) Is it Chicony brand, or is it Liteon?I meant that the camera worked on the account registration page where you can choose a default picture or take one with the camera.
Well - apparently it's extremely difficult to get completely unsupported devices working. From what I understand, everyone here uses custom .kext 's, but it's really just an edited already-existing kext to a similar vendor and product. All people do is swap in their VendorID and ProductID that isn't recognized, and voila it works! However, there appears to be no similar native kexts for wifi for Intel Wireless cards.I don't mind having to buy an atheros card to get the wifi working. There just seems to be so much information out there and it's all conflicting. I thought someone would have gotten all this stuff working on this laptop by now.
Let me know if you're still having trouble with your HD4000. Like I said, I have QE with 1366x768 going! Works great.How did you manage to get native resolution with your video card? I'm assuming you have HD4000 like I do with no discrete graphics card.
What is the best, most reliable, method of installing Multibeast on a Z580 to get as much working as possible.
Here's some tips:I purchased a Lenovo Z580 laptop a week ago at Staples, a model 215128U, with the specific intention of hackintoshing it. I replaced the original HDD and installed a 500GB I had and followed the directions and installed ML with unibeast with little to no problems. All my problems come in the Multibeast 5.0.2 area. I have tried several configurations and get a kernel panic or a lockup durring the boot screen.
I think I ordered the same card - the AR5B195... I think it's pretty much the same thing as what I mentioned before, the AR9285 - or at least it's part of the same chip family made by Atheros, like you said, with the addition of bluetooth.I ordered an Atheros AR5B195 because I found kext drivers for it. It's a combo wifi/bluetooth card. If it works, I may get another for my other Z580, the Linux laptop, since whatever bluetooth it has inside isn't Linux-worthy out of the box.
Do you know if the Z580 has a BIOS whitelist for mini PCIe cards like other Lenovos do? I've read that others had to re-flash their BIOS to use "non-approved" wireless cards in some Lenovo laptops.
