Zenbook UX32VD: FN-Keys + keyboard backlight

25 January 2013 - 05:19 PM

Hey guys,

I'm dealing with a nasty problem here as per topic title on ML 10.8, Bios v. 212.
Does anyone have a DSDT that enables FN-Keys & keyboard-backlight control?

If not, is there any DSDT god who feels like helping?

By reading all the documentation on the issue (even from Linux distros) it seems that the fix lies in properly initializing CADL & DIDL.

I tried many things, but nothing works.

I'm calling for help!

Guide: ASUS UX32VD Zenbook - Snow Leopard (10.6) MBR SSD

19 January 2013 - 03:40 PM

Small guide to install Snow Leopard on UX32VD-4002P.

=== Preliminary decisions
Choose one destination disk: iSSD (internal SSD) or HDD.
My choice: iSSD, it's faster.

Choose one partition-layout between: GUID or MBR.
My choice: I can only choose MBR cause I had previously deleted my EFI partition (and I don't wanna go the EFI way).
Note: In case your choice is GUID, you need to keep the EFI partition of your UX32VD - if you don't do this, your laptop won't see the bootable disk. Refer to the countless tutorials about EFI/UEFI and GUID.

=== Installation
1) Boot with Nawcom's ModCD
Note: You need Nawcom's ModCD to use the MBR-layout. Other bootloaders (most likely) won't work.

2) Swap disk with the 10.6 retail DVD (or use a previously prepared 10.6 Installation USB key)
Note: you can prepare the USB key with DiskUtility, using the "Restore" feature (Drag DVD on Source -> Drag USB-key on Destination -> Click Restore).

3) Once you're in the installer, partition your iSSD as MBR and proceed as usual.

4) Finished. Enjoy your new hackintosh (better hardware than Macbook Air 13") ;-P

=== Post install
Installed Chameleon-2.1svn-r2012
Updated to Chimera 1.11.1 (which should support IntelHD4000 - even though I read somewhere that IntelHD4000 is supported only from 10.7 and up)
Grabbed some DSDTs and assembled my own
Currently trying the Video card with different setups (device-properties EFI string, GraphicsEnabler = Yes & GraphicsMode 1920x1080x32, IntelHDPlatformID, etc.)

The laptop is *BLAZING* fast. I'll post what works during the next days....if I don't switch to ML.

Anyone who is interested, drop by and say hi ! :-)
