Hello everybody,
I'm sorry for my bad english, i'm french...
So, i have a Sony VAIO VGN-FZ31M, and i want to install OSX Snow Leopard on my computer.
My configuration:
-Motherboard: CPU Type: Mobile DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo T7250, 2000 MHz
Chipset: Intel Crestline-PM PM965
System Memory: 2048 MB (DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM)
BIOS Type: Phoenix
-Display: NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT
-Audio: SigmaTel STAC9872AK @ Intel 82801HBM ICH8M - High Definition Audio Controller
-Network: LAN: Intel® 4965AGN (192.168.1.68)
Ethernet: Marvell Yukon 88E8036 PCI-E

(I don't know if i forgot something..)
I have not succeeded to create DSDT because i can't find my bios on the net
I already tried: iDeneb v1.6 (Leopard) --> My audio works, my graphic card works, my ethernet works
iAtkos S3 v2 --> Installation completed, but my mouse and my keyboard aren't recognized
SL 10.6.1 by hazard --> installation completed, but i have a kernel panic

I need your help to get SL on my computer ! Thank you !

Have you tried a retail Snow Leopard installation? I did a quick look at your hardware, and it looks like that it should work OK except for WiFi. WiFi will not work at all. Graphics should work as Snow Leopard has drivers for 7xxx, 8xxx, and 9xxx NVIDIA GeForce cards. Looks like your ethernet might work. Audio most likely will work with VoodooHDA. For now, try getting it installed. Try with http://www.insanelym...howtopic=269841 to install Snow Leopard on your PC. If you have issues, post here.

OK, looks like someone got ethernet working:

hi I have installed Leopard 10.5.2 and the only thing you should change to make Marvel Yukon (88e8036) work is: (Dev ID: 4351, Vendor ID: 11AB)
Just edit the file:

sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/Info.plist

and change just the 88e8053 section on this file

88e8053 change to 88e8036
AND
436211ab change to 435111ab

save the file copy it to

/System/Library/Extensions/AppleYukon2.kext

and that's it

Enjoy your new NIC on Mac Os

The same method should work fine in Snow Leopard.

So I get the original DVD. The installation succeeded, but I can boot only on safe mode, because I have kernel panic

Ok i install Chameleon 2 RC5 VS and i check Graphics enabler but when i boot, i have a black screen. So i uncheck graphics enabler and i check npci-0x2000. Now, audio, ethernet, bluetooth are working. My resolution is 1280x800. Sleep mode and "About this mac.." don't work. And is it possible to get multitouch with my trackpad ?
