  2. [How To] Install Mac on a Vaio SZ7

    no sorry to burst your bubble, but it is not possible, at least for now. many have tried before, including myself and have not succeeded. I hope that someday we might get lucky!
  3. [How To] Install Mac on a Vaio SZ7

    I have dualboot between win7 and leopard. If I boot into win7, load the camera app and restart directly into leopard, the camera gets noticed natively! I even played around with photo booth a bit! funny story.. also I cannot seem to get my battery to work properly. Is there a method installing it in a way that the internal keyboard and trackpad do not stop working if I disconnect the AC power cable?? THanks
  4. [How To] Install Mac on a Vaio SZ7

    Yeah! Thanks so much, I was really happy that so many people showed interest in Leopard on a Vaio. We still need drivers for - Fingerprint Scanner -.- not really - camera <- that would be sweet because then we could use photo booth - wifi <- that one is important - scrolling! yeah I used the search function, but I haven't found anything on Windows 7 yet. i am sure it will be easy when I get to it though... one more question: how do you patch the DSDT? I have downloaded the GUI Patcher..not even fetching and decompiling works.. thanks anyways everyone!!
  5. [How To] Install Mac on a Vaio SZ7

    alright I installed it the new V7 on my sz7, it is not to difficult to do. the only packages I would advise you to select are the first Trackpad Driver, the Intel X3100. the sound is selected by default so leave it. however do NOT select the battery manager, because this will crash your system. now I have several issues to deal with: first of all my camera doesn't work, i don't have any drivers, but it would be cool if someone gave my instructions on how to fix it. most important of all, my headphone jack doesn't work which is annoying! two-finger scrolling? the battery indicator. did anyone have success? apart from the issues above I am overall quite pleased with the performance of the system. It runs smooth and is really good to work with. off topic: before I installed it, I had a dual boot between xp and windows 7. I decided it would be cool to have mac and windows 7 on the same machine. I used disk util to clear my XP hard drive partition and then installed mac on top of it. My boot loader is Chameleon 2 and W7 is recognized, but it simply wont boot because it gives me the error message: NTLDR is missing!! what did I do wrong. Is there some way to fix this MBR issue? Thanks guys mm
  6. [How To] Install Mac on a Vaio SZ7

    This is getting more interesting. I have decided not sticking with leopard any more as it gave me strange fdisk errors, which were pretty awful as I had to reset my whole MBR. This occurred several times, but only after the computer hung up and I had to manually switch it off. Simply ran too unstable... how is the 10.5.7? I am thinking of giving it another shot. another important issue however was the sound, which was distorted and had some issues. did it change? thanks guys
