=== Thinkpad T60 (2007-66U) 14.1" NON-Widescreen ===
*'''Install Method:''' iBoot 3.2.0 + Mac OS X 10.6.3 Retail DVD + Multibeast 3.10.1
*'''CPU:''': Core Duo T2500 2.0 GHz (NOT a Core2Duo, NOT 64 bit capable)
*'''SATA Hard Disk:''' (ICH9 Family) Yes Out of Box
*'''SATA DVD+/-RW:''' (ICH9 Family) Yes Out of Box
*'''Graphics:''' ATI X1400 Radeon Mobility *works, add 0x71451002 to ATIRadeonX1000.kext
*'''Audio:''' Yes (VoodooHDA 2.1)
*'''Wifi:''' Yes Out Of Box †
*'''USB:''' Yes
*'''Bluetooth:''' Yes Out Of Box
*'''Ethernet:''' Yes Out Of Box
*'''Trackpad:''' Synaptics Touchpad Yes (Voodoo PS/2 Touchpad)
*'''Sleep:''' Yes, S1 sleep works
*'''†:''' Had to flash a modified BIOS 2.27 (NOT 1.19! The widescreen and non-widescreen BIOSes are not compatible) with the Whitelist removed.  Replaced Intel 3945ABG with "Airport" Rebranded Broadcom BCM4311MCG
* '''Install Method:'''
** 1) Boot with iBoot and install 10.6.3 make sure to always boot with arch=i386
** 2) Once installed, update to Combo Update '''10.6.7''', followed by EasyBeast with Multibeast.  Edit /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist and remove the GraphicsEnabler=Yes section. Reboot.
** 3) Copy AppleACPIPlatform.kext, IOGraphicsFamily.kext, IONDRVSupport.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext from 10.6.7 to desktop.
** 4) Install Combo Update 10.6.8.  Before reboot, reinstall the four 10.6.7 kexts mentioned and run Multibeast selecting EasyBeast and VoodooHDA 2.1.  Repair permissions.  Remove GraphicsEnabler=Yes from your boot.plist again.  Reboot, make sure to boot with -f or else you'll probably encounter a kernel panic.
** 5) To enable QE/CI and resolution change, add 0x71451002 to /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist and install RadeonHD.kext.  Repair permissions and reboot.
** 6) You will now have a 100% functional T60.  You can do a few things to tweak performance like extracting your EDID information and injecting it into RadeonHD.kext (helps reduce the mouse tearing problem but DOES NOT fix it), and you can edit your smbios.plist and AGPM.kext to improve power management slightly.
