hey,

my friends has juste bought a sony vaio vcpw12m1e, and he wants me to install snow leopard in it. i saw the specs, and i'm sure graphics will work fine (the same as dell min 10v). but sound, ethernet and wireless chipset aren't specified, and i want to know if someone got the vaio quite fully working with SL (if there is no sound, no problem)

any clues??

thanks a lot!

]MY SNOW LEOPARD 10.6.2 running on VPC W21 M1E
- not fully working yet - thanks for any help!!


using the iPortable Snow x86 10.6.2 (Intel SSE2/SSE3 od higher)
http://www.infinitem...tel-sse2-t5476/

read the PDF readme to install and default kernel i did the instalation, also Patched DSTS and fixed Extensions and Extra with KextHelper.

WORKING HW after this clear isntall:
KEYBOARD US/another
USB full control
BLUETOOTH DUN - possible to pair any devices, and with my MacBook Pro I share the Internet over bluetooth, so its possible to activate Bluetooth PAN connection for connect to internet.
MOTION EYE- working fine (i think withouth graphic acceleration) - tried Photo Booth, Skype, and fully works.
SOUND IN/OUT - with VoodooHDA described bellow works built in Speakers, Mic. also Ext. IN/OUT + fn Keys


added this extensions:
(find at kexts.com, google)

VoodooHDA.kext + control panel VoodooHDA.prefPane
- working sound IN/OUT, Add customization of this device to System Preferences.

VoodooBAttery.kext
- working battery metter

UPDATE: it is possible to load also AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext for better battery con position :)

AppleSMBIOSEFI-28air.zip
- this extension fixes the About This Mac issue


Also added
but i think it is not working (I think its because of another device part release)

ApplePS2Trackpad.kext - i installed it from original system, but it still doesnt show any Preferences Panel in the System preferences
this kexts is located in /Extra/Extensions with anorther ApplePS2 kexts.

or should it be installed in /System/Library/Extensions?

I have tried apps like iTunes, Mail, Safari - everything works fine.


HAVE TO DO NEXT:
any help very welcome!

activate LAN and wireless
Attansic L1C (ATL1C) - AR8132 Fast Ethernet [1969:1062] - cant find any way to add another interface in Network Pref Panel - only bluetooth DUN & PAN and PPo atc.

activate Trackpad Preferences Panel, to use mutli touch and device settings change
- i already did it one time working, but dont remembner the steps :wacko:

activate GMA 3150 graphic controller
- i spent over hours by searching the solution, but still nothing working - no resolution change, no kext loaded.

there are also slots for SD card and HG dub, but this is not so important at this moment. :wacko:

That's because of thé boot flag. Boot on a USB installation of 7, open up disk part via the command prompt, SET active the main Windows partition, reboot on USB, repair, enjoy :lol:

hi, i have vaio tz11mn with iPortable
and for me was no problem to get gma950 full qe-ci with stock kexts and efi string device-properties and for full resolution i used SwithResX
i guess your graphic card will work also with stock kext´s
do a combo update to 10.6.2 to get those kexts and a working vanilla mach_kernel
remember to remove framebufferdisabler from extra and /S/L/E ..framebufferdisabler
this has put me in the right track
u may also lock here fore more native speedstep and to get rid of some kexts from extra

how did u get webcam working ? any kext?
i have VGC-VCC7 and its not working

for mouse with touch and tap and full keys keyboard i use voodooPS2
Sleep works for u? for me does not
