  1. This How-To is especially for those x201 where the standard installation fails. It seems that mainly the type 3680 of the x201 is affected. You will find the type on a sticker at the bottom of your x201. If you have a 3680, putting the Framebuffer file AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext into the E/E folder is probably not enough to get a bootable USB stick. Instead the following files can be used: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/208-1st-gen-intel-hd-graphics-kexts/ Unfortunately they have to be installed in the System/Library/Extensions folder, replacing the original files, and so things get a bit more complicated. You need a running Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. Can be on a real Mac, a Hackintosh, or a VMWare image. 1.) Install Mavericks Installer on USB stick - Plug-in the USB stick (>= 8 GB), HFS formatted - Download myHack from http://myhack.sojugarden.com - Download Mavericks Installer from Apple Store - Launch myHack, select function "Create OS X Installer", select "Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk", select "Scan my System" and let myHack do it's main work. - Please do NOT patch the installer for MBR support. myHack 3.3.1 does not support that correctly. 2.) Install graphic card extensions - Download x201_Mav_SLE, attached to this post. - Open the folder System / Library / Extensions (S/L/E) of the USB stick in the Finder. - Delete all files beginning with "AppleIntelHDGraphics". Should be 4 files. - Copy the content of the downloaded ZIP file into the extensions folder. 5 files. - Open "Terminal" application (see "Applications" / "Utilities"). Execute the following commands: : cd /Volumes/<your_stick_name>/System/Library/Extensions : sudo chmod -R 755 AppleIntelHDGraphics* : sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleIntelHDGraphics* : sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine AppleIntelHDGraphics* - close "Terminal" application 3.) Install "Extras" folder - Download "x201_Mav_E", attached to this post. - Launch myHack, and select "Install Extra". - Select your stick as the target. - Select "Use My Own", and select the previously downloaded "x201_Mav_E" folder. - myHack copies the folder onto the usb stick, adjusts the ownerships and permissions and regenerates the caches. - The USB stick should be ready now to install Mavericks on a x201. 4.) Boot the installer stick - Plug the stick into any USB slot of the x201. - Turn on the x201 - Immediately press "F12" - In the boot menu select your stick. - Booting from the stick might take a bit longer with periods of inactivity - be patient. 5.) Install Mavericks - Follow the installation, format the hard drive if necessary. - At the end, myHack will pop up and ask for the Extra folder. - Select "Use My Own" and select the "Extra" folder of your USB stick. - answer "Yes", "Yes", "No" for removing problematic extensions. 6.) Copy SLE-Extensions folder from stick - Don't boot from your hard drive, boot from the stick again - Select language, but then don't follow the installation - Instead launch the Terminal application - Enter: : cd /Volumes/<your_Hard_Drive>/System/Library : mv Extensions Extensions.orig : cp -R /System/Library/Extensions . : exit - Run myHack with function "myFix", select your HDD and select "Full". - Reboot your x201 by using the Apple menu - The post-installation process should start, and at it's end you should see the desktop.
