it's been a long time...

my vaio p's osx installation died with tht 10.6.2 update - long time ago......

but even w7 kinda sucked on the p - so today i started to install osx again

it's still easy

prepared the two pendrives, installed osx and copied the needed files to the hdd - but i'm still lazy and used the finder to copy the files instead of the terminal.
used showallfiles and deleted the boot file on the hdd, then dropped 2 files and 1 folder to the root directory of the hdd, repaired the permissions and rebooted it, then deleted the applehda.kext and rebooted again.
the only thing left to do is the wwan - but thats also only a software setup thingy

i still use the original snow leopard disk (10.6.0) - i don't think that updating will bring any improvement - i think the p will stick with the original snow kitty ;-)

Hi everybody! I'm new here.. And I have to say that I've discovered this forum searching some infos on the Sony Vaio P with linux! But since I'm a MBP users (only for what concerns my laptop 'cause my PC still uses Winzoz for gaming) I'd like to try out osX 10.6 on the Vaio P..

 

But unfortunately all the links in the first page of this discussion are "dead"..

Could someone upload the files once again please?

:  )

Thanks

Hi All,

 

I just nowadays bought my P29VN, and after 2 Weeks I have SL 10.6.7 and Win7 (Win8.1 works also) dual boot. Dont try 10.6.8 update, it is lazy, inresponsive, instable.

I did my Vaio after this :

Unfortunately video playback really bad, but for everydays work not bad.

You cannot do this thing without Terminal knowledge, but this is not so difficult.

There is a good thing, named Houdini.app, it is super to change hidden files like mach_kernel.

Good luck !
