10.9 on the Surface Pro 3

22 June 2014 - 07:59 PM

Before I get into the post here is what I have found not working:


Type cover

Touch screen



Some graphics




Seeing as the Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 2 share similar hardware I made an attempt to install 10.9.2 on to it. Following JahStories' tutorial I was able to get the machine to boot into the installer.

However, because of the new screen it seemed to hang at a black screen. To fix this I had to adjust some of the flags given to Clover. 


Here is a fixed "config.plist" that will let the installer and OS boot past the black screen:

I added to DSDT fixes: INTELGFX as well as GRAPHICS to the plist, changed the "Intel Injection" to true, changed the SMBIOS to a full Macbook Air SMBIOS, and removed the custom EDID since we have a new panel. 


Once in the OS the UI has some serious artifacts on the menu bar as well as the dock. I attribute this to the new screen and with time I'm sure we can figure out how to fix it. 


Here is the HEX for the EDID if you want to try out a custom EDID for the panel. I haven't had the chance to input it.


This is just a start and I hope others will contribute so we can get it up and running.
