ThinkPad L13


DISCLAIMER: As you embark on your Hackintosh journey you are encouraged to READ the entire README and Dortania guides before you start. It will save many a message instructing you to RTFM. I am not an expert, I haven\’t forced you to do anything, put on your big boy pants and take responsibility for any mess you get yourself into.

All that said I\’m happy to help when/where I can. When you encounter bug or want to improve this repo, consider opening an issue or pull request. You can also find a wealth of knowledge on RedditTonyMacX86 or Google.
