I tried to do the efi rename trick, but then Windows 10 wouldn't boot at all - it'd just show a weird striped box. So I reverted after booting back into OSX. What kind of extra steps are needed if you do this with Windows 10?

Hi there, what's the trick you are referring to, any link?
sorry but I don't remember such thing.
Posted 05 September 2015 - 10:25 PM
10. Go to /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/ folder and rename bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfw-orig.efi
So, the things I have left are:
Smooth, adjustable trackpad
Battery level detection
VRAM up from 7 MB (proper video drivers)
Sleep / Hibernate ability
Things I've managed to get working:
Wifi with USB adapter
Legitimate credentials for App Store / iCloud usage
Can you point me in any direction for any solutions?

I think you did not correctly followed the steps of the guide...
Are you on sp1 or sp2, please update your signature as suggested.
You are on sp2 and you are using a guide I did not wrote...
I never used that "trick", so I don't know how to help, try writing a PM to PokenGuy

Ok, I've scrapped my old install and started from scratch with your guide. I'm now stuck on 'Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport!'. I searched for solutions and tried all of them, but there's no coming past this. Any suggestions?

that's nothing specific, try posting a screenshot...

did you remembered the step 8?
8. Copy mach-kernel from attached files to your USB drive?
Posted 07 September 2015 - 02:10 PM
Yes. Copied onto its root, right?
Posted 07 September 2015 - 02:40 PM
that's for installation then from the terminal in the installer or if you can boot in single user:
• cp –R /mach_kernel /Volumes/"NEW OSX PARTITION"/
Posted 07 September 2015 - 09:47 PM
Hmm.. single user didn't do the trick. The mach kernel is there. I downloaded official Mavericks from my purchase history in the Mac App Store. I wonder if that starts you out as the latest version of Mavericks instead of base 10.9.0. Would that mess things up? I'm trying to come up with potential points of conflict, but I followed all the directions, so I don't know what else to do at this point.
Do you know anything about if Windows 10 changes anything about the process?
Posted 07 September 2015 - 10:12 PM
ahhh sorry, but I have no more ideas...
As said before I never tried installing on sp2...

or I could add it to the first post if you like!

Hey, I never could figure out how to get my wierd backlight refresh issue fixed via a custom dsdt. But I did figure out that ours are not the only laptops with this weird issue.
To clarify, for me when I first would log in to the Mac OSX I would get default brightness from the last login, but after the very first display sleep or refresh I would then get max brightness. Also, the slider in brightness display settings was't showing up until after this refresh. very annoying to reset each time.
So after searching a bit online I discovered the brightnessFix tool. just google it. It auto re-freshes the display and resets the brightness to a desired level after each login.
It consists of a BrightnessFix binary that is placed into /usr/bin and a brightnessFix.plist that has the desired level set in it which goes into /System/Library/LaunchAgents, this can then be edited using sudo nano.
I did decide to shut off login at each sleep so that I didn't have double login at each boot, but that is just my preference, your security concerns may be different.

So is there currently a group buy of the touch-base drivers going on? to those that have upgraded to Yosemite does it support touch natively?
thanks, this seems to be the perfect touch-mac with the sample touch-base drivers.
