I am a newbie here! Just registered.

I can install OS X with unifail, but it will stuck at white apple. I can't even use the EDP on it. Do you have any suggestions for this laptop?

Sorry for the long list of hardware report.

Indeed. I encountered the same problem on an E6420. The HDD was not visible from the OS X installer, however, if I took it out and connected it to a USB adapter, I could install OS X on it. On checking the BIOS, I found the HDD mode to be set to RAID.

 

So, check your BIOS settings...
