  1. I did the update straight from the App Store and It just updated automatically - nothing appeared to get broke, touch sound power management all ok. This is the most trouble free build I've had in a while.
  2. ran the update no problems to 10.11.2 this am, so far everythings still good to go. kwj
  3. regarding the sleep /usb eject, I always had this problem with my SD card slot, I still do whenever the unit awakes from very deep sleep. I had it with the old set up I had as well as my current build. hope this info is helpful
  4. new card worked great, typing on it now, still figuring out details about rest of system, and will try out that audio mod as soon as I get a weekend to read try redo, etc. thanks for the info and trailblazing on the new update. quick edit, tried the touchbase, had the install issues, tried the trial one supplied in [i think] edwin's guide pg 4 and it worked so I contacted the company before I went to bed last night and overnight they sent the updated driver, so whoever upthread had the same install fail, just get in touch with touchbase [ouch] one more quick note - hats off to midi for the audio patch, it totally worked, easy instructions, and its the first time Ive had audio since 10.8 Im not sure it ever worked on this machine, I cant thank rehabman for all his kext and injectors that have simplified this enough either. k
  5. thats the results Im looking for, the old bluetooth was not working anymore and I didnt see the old card mentioned in the new guides. Ill be asking more about this in about a week [ ]
  6. re: old wifi bluetooth to new wifi bluetooth question 
 old card on way out: 593127-001 HP Wireless wifi N Bluetooth BT 3.0+HS half pcie Card Atheros AR5B195 new card arriving tomorrow:
 AzureWave AW-CE123H / 802.11ac/n/b/g + Bluetooth 4.0 / Half-Size PCI-Express MiniCard the old one worked for wifi but I had a hack for the bluetooth that I couldnt sort and figured Id try to align with more compatible hardware. we shall see!
  7. hey thanks everyone for all the new info and activity - after getting to capitan I had bluetooth issues so mines in 1/2 waiting for the new card to arrive, my only big previous issue was audio, so I'll definitely be trying this dummy hda kext pathway as soon as it gets here, anyway, from a reading lurker, thanks again!
  8. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298815-guide-samsung-ativ-700t-yosemite/?p=2083188 Sorry for the awkward post but this it's the link to the solution I use every update when I have this problem after. I'm out of town and can't access this properly but it is always the usb3 kext getting put back in the extensions. Hope this is helpful.
  9. just an FYI on the touchbase drivers, I actually bought them back on mavericks, and they work great. https://touch-base.com/documentation/Slate.htm has the price listed at 100$ so if that makes a difference…
  10. wow, terrific -from scratch guide, Ive been rolling mine for years on the old guides config.list and just being careful, but im not using a dsdt currently and have never had full working audio, so i might have to run through a parallel build to see if I can improve some stuff. thanks for posting!

    regarding applying that battery indicator dsdt edit, is that being applied to a dsdt file or is it being injected through the config.list and clover? I stopped using a dsdt file with my build once I switched to clover/uefi style booting, so Im wondering which way its being applied thanks for the info.

    DRfroman—I had the same problem regarding alt screen resolutions other than the base 1980/1080. My issue was introduced when I added the windows install on NYE, the scaled resolutions were available previously. I've been observing the back and forth here regarding the original posters config file, thats the one I've been using. When an external monitor is attached you can adjust the settings, but it didn't seem to fix anything. midi —both tiger and new egg have this computer refurbed for 600$ if you are looking for one.

    I use both the internal wacom and an external wacom device, as for why have the internal wacom drivers, in practical experience, when you update the OS and have to reapply the usb patch mentioned in this thread [http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298815-guide-samsung-ativ-700t-yosemite/page-2?do=findComment&comment=2047954], you need to be able to calibrate to get the usb to see the wacom pen to respond. as far as the surface and its needs, I don't own one, I was only replying to your enquiry about alternative hardware options, thats the only other cheap device that popped up on my radar, being that it has better installable user ram, and is also wacom still. I don't know anything about the hardware and touchbase drivers. hope this is helpful, I was using chameleon up until nov, so Im only beginning to learn to exploit clovers uses, thats why windows wasn't happening before.

    thanks for the reply and suggestions. I wasnt asking for windows uefi help, I got it working myself as mentioned in my initial post today. I was polling owners about their audio configurations, since mines still not working. Regarding chat, I like the paper trail that a forum provides. thanks again though for the info,

    thanks for the replies, quickly, today while still on vacation I'm running myself through a CPU/IGPU management guide for fun to see if I can get some dependable battery info [works then doesn't work then works] thought Id try to improve it although it doesnt really affect anything workflow wise. 1) thanks for the info dicker182, I'm using the voodoo too but it doesn't work at all internally. I used to use a patched DSDT but only use clover these days, currently the only audio is through bluetooth or airplay, but thats with any config. 2) midi. —for me this has been a dependable computer used as a home studio driving a wacom screen, and on the road as a travel computer. your milage may vary, the only limitation Ive got with the hardware is the ram limit of 4G. I havent been looking for alternatives however other than the surface 2 [with the wacom pen] no other options. 3) the audio on the hardware is Intel series 7/C210 I currently have no idea if theres a ALC corrilation I thought that was only realtek audio. anyway, goofing on my setup this afternoon, still very stoked about getting a real windows install running
