Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i


I had a hard time to find a working hackintosh EFI for my lenovo gaming 3. I guess some one out there is looking for this. So here we go :)) P.S: There are some issues I could not yet solve. But since I only need a working hackintosh for software development, current working catalina is good enough. I hope someone else can solve remaining issues and share with us.

Working features

  1. Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB
  2. Brightness control (Replace config.plist with config_after_installation.plist under /EFI/EFI/CLOVER. Copy SSDT-PNLF-CFL.aml to /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched)
  3. Audio (Install VoodooHDA 2.9.2 Clover to ESP) and connect to bluetooth speaker or headphone

Not working

  1. HDMI port (USB C to HDMI also does not work !!!)
  2. Intel Wifi (Solution: use Wifi USB dongle such as TPLink 823N and install its driver)
  3. No audio output from speakers (Use headphone instead)


  1. Fast battery drain (Update to latest SMCBatteryManager.kext)

Notice (MUST READ)

You will find 2 versions of config.plist file under /EFI/EFI/CLOVER. Because of an issue with low brightness at boot, you need to use default config.plist when you want to install Catlina so that you can see what is displayed on your screen. After installation of your Catalina, you can replace config.plist with another version of config_after_installation.plist which can be found in same directory (rename it to config.plist). At next boot, your screen will be under very low brightness. But that will be fixed after few minutes. All you need to do is to wait. Trust me
