It is now very possible to boot my installer straight off the laptop itself! (Instead of swapping out hdds and stuff)
Just install a kext from here: http://sourceforge.n...genericusbxhci/. From what I've found, Sony's motherboard uses XHCI to manage even the USB 2.0 drives. With this kext in place in /S/L/E in my OSX Installer, all three ports (USB2 + 3 + 3) work now.
P.S. I am using OSX 10.9 Installer but this should work with ML too.
Hi Everyone! I managed to get my Sony Vaio SVS1311FGS (Vaio S 2012 Series) on working with Mountain Lion DP4!
- i5-3210M (somehow unrecognized, cpuid model not found etc, but works)
- Intel HD 4000 (main GPU for OSX, works fully *details later below)
- NVIDIA Geforce GT-640M (Optimus cards are useless for Mac. However, I would like to know how to disable it via DSDT.)
- Realtek 10EC:8168 Ethernet card (work in progress, I haven't searched deeply for a 64-bit kext that would load in ML)
- Intel Wifi Card (garbage. I'm using a RTL8192SU USB dongle)
- Sound Card (lol, I don't know the model, but it works fine with VoodooHDA) (Should be the Intel HD Audio)
- You cannot plonk in a USB OSX Installer made from either: ######, MyHack or any other USB solution. The absence of a BIOS mod (which I would have avoided anyway) to enable AHCI to get the USB Installer to recognize itself renders using USB Installers useless
- I'm not sure about using DVDs.
- I used a Sandy Bridge laptop to act as the installing machine instead. I switched their hard drives and got the thing to work, as my Sandy Bridge is hackintosh-friendly
- You need a special bootloader. No Chameleon-ML, No Chimera 1.10. You need those special ones
- OSX CANNOT BOOT FROM UEFI MODE. I use UEFI to go into Windows and Legacy into Mac. YOU MIGHT RUN INTO TROUBLE TRYING TO ENABLE CLICKING ON TRACKPAD. I've somehow managed to enable mine through the keyboard
- Partition the hard drive on any partition program (u can use diskpart or Disk Management from Windows itself)
- Remove it and place it into another machine where the USB Installers have successfully booted
- Get OSX installed. The hard drive is in a GPT format due to UEFI, no modding of Installer needed.
- When the hard drive is placed back into the Vaio S, get into the BIOS through F2 at boot and change Booting Mode into 'Legacy' and Place 'External Device' before 'Internal Hard Drive' in boot priorities
- THE NEXT STEP REQUIRES AN EXISTING MAC, to install the custom bootloader on the USB device. Get the USB Installer, insert it into the other Mac or Hackintosh and install http://blog.stuffedc....1svn-r2012.pkg, a bootloader by stuffedcow for HD 4000 users. Set the settings on the Installer as follows: Standard boot, GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Ignore the HDMIAudio, NVIDIA, ATI options.
- When you're done, navigate to the Extra folder on the USB stick, and place the DSDT.aml attached in the zip file in this folder.
- Boot the computer with this USB stick. When at the boot prompt for the OSX partition in the HDD, type: -v -f "Graphics Mode"="1366x768x32" HD4000PlatformId=3
- This should get it all working. Fix Everything Up (Network, etc).
INTEL HD 4000
The table for HD 4000 is there. Those platform-ids that start with 0166 are for mobile (ours). Those with 0162 are for desktops. If you wish to try the platform-id for the alphabets, a is 10 and b is 11.
I've tested them and the platform-id 3 should work for ours. It enabled Internal Screen and HDMI. I'm researchiing on editing the connector info for VGA. Some info on connectors for HD 4000: http://www.tonymacx8...support-11.html
NVIDIA GeForce GT640M
Useless. Optimus does not work on OSX and probably never will as Apple uses MUXes. Do Note that the Speed/Stamina switch can be switched to either option. OSX does not care.
However, I'd like to know how to disable it via DSDT to save battery life.
REALTEK 10EC:8168 CARD
Nope. Nada. Intel wifi was never used by Apple.
This will work if you use the USBPackage attached. Install the files in the folder 1 first, before installing those in 2.USB3 is a work in progress by other people using Intel's USB3 Controllers, although some have worked by changing XHCI setting in their BIOSes (no such option for us)
Use VoodooHDA for Mountain Lion.
Using the SleepEnabler for Mountain Lion, but haven't tested yet.
Mine is Synaptics, so it works. But sensitivity needs changing.
