Thinkpad T420s Installation issues

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install Mojave Olaria (the clean image) to a Lenovo T420 , and it hangs at the white apple logo loading, when it says "about 12 minutes remaining". Left it all night and never finished.  Tried a Clover install and it does the same. Any ideas what's happening?

  • Processor: Intel i5-2520M CPU
  • Chipset: Intel QM67
  • Screen: 14.0″ 1600 x 900
  • Graphics: Intel HD3000
  • 8MB RAM
  • Lenovo Trackpoint + Synaptics touchpad
  • Wireless: Intel 6300 802.11a/g/n

I finally installed Mojave, it's stuck in 1280x 800 resolution (can't see Clover completely)  but if I add any kexts it hangs at boot or lose the keyboard, trackpad and network.
Also the EFI folder is a mess: tons of repeated folders (I think some are OpenCore) and not sure which is it using to boot. Really confused.

I will do that. Why don’t you make a repository of EFI folders that work in certain computers? Like several people have successfully done Lenovo T420, why don’t they copy their final EFI folder and post it so people don’t have to go through great lengths to get it working? Just an idea.
