Lenovo B590


Recommended Posts

Hello there, I want to know if my laptop is compatible to install macos alongside windows. I have tried a few tutorials, which involved installing macos Sierra on a virtual machine and then downloading macos Sierra installation and flashing the installation into a pendrive. I have tried setting the Bios accordingly for it to boot but it didn't work, I cannot boot into the installation. The tutorials which I tried were made for laptops with similar specs to mine. What I want to ask you is if my laptop is really compatible or not and if there are any existing tutorials that can help me install macos on my computer. (I know that the wifi card won't work, but I don't have a problem with that).
Here are my specs:

  • Intel i3-3120m (2.50ghz)
  • 6gb ram
  • kingston ssd 256gb
  • Graphics Intel HD 4000
  • Bios legacy and uefi compatibility
  • Broadcom 802.11.n Network Adapter

If you have access to another mac, download mac os, create an installer usb via terminal, download clover and install clover to the usb. You also need to look for clover efi folder with config.plist and basic kexts of similar hardware spec from the forum to put into the usb clover efi folder. Your hardware spec should be able to boot mac os. After that troubleshoot each hardware if need to.


This guide should be a good starting point: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-precision-vostro-xps-clover-guide/
