  1. Vaio P Snow Leopard

    One of the Last-Resort solution is to transfer the extension to HDD Boot by installing Chameleon. I recommend manual terminal install. Keyboard will be re-mapped to english after restart. Oh~ to run extra.sh (will CHMOD and CHOWN for you after extension correction) by dragging file to terminal.

  3. Vaio P Snow Leopard

    Link to previous forum: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1165697 Ryuu, Here are the additional things that I've found: - Power Management, Leaving sleep HDD on will freeze the entire system. (Make sure to turn off sleep / display options). - In System Profile, Battery cycle count is not measured. - My Vaio P is keep losing battery charge even after shut down (In very noticeable amount) . Is this normal for non-mac computers?

    It's much more faster than running windows family (And that includes 7 after installing utils), that has GMA500 driver. Since I've got working Wifi with Snow, I no longer needed for any second operating systems. In terms of performance, I've been actually using the P for some light coding. Yes it's slow, but fast enough for me. (I might even consider ssd upgrade once sleep and misc, issues are fixed).

    Griff, Make a bootable USB using Disk Utility. (Do not make seperate partitions. I've created my Leopard USB installation by seperating into two partitions, where first part contain only the Chameleon. I failed this attempt and had to use single partition.) Install Chameleon manually. (Tried RC2 installer but did not work). README file has good instructions, run the command from the folder where Chameleon binaries are stored. Open Ryuu's zip and copy over entire content. Use terminal to overwrite Boot file. Files under System folder can be placed by mouse drag. (add the file onto the existing System folder). Copy over modified OSInstall.mpkg. Netkas has proper instructions. (It's not just one file to overwrite). Update: I've FAILed keyboard.

    Thank you for your great work ryuu!! Installing SL was much easier than Leopard. 1. Being a CDN Version, I've noticed that keyboard mapping got changed to Japanese Layout. Would you be able to help us how to recondition? (Has VOODOO PS2 Keyboard changed?) 2. Thx for the HDA Patch, I'll compile it as soon as I get back from work. I've installed to non-GUID partition in order to save the recovery partition. Using rest of the partition for SL (no win, who needs em?)

    So far, I've done numerous times of re-try with no success. I'm sure I am following the instruction exactly (after 3 weeks of trying, it better be), but i am still stuck at boot where it hangs. This only possible difference with others may be that I've installed Sony's BIOS update. Do you think this has any effects? (PCIFIX's memory mapping matches with the previous post info) BTW, I'm using Patriot 64GB USB for OS X installation. Retail 10.5.0 upgraded to 10.5.7 Installed Chameleon 1 (Used Installer Package, any other files i need to add after?) Installed ryuu's version 1 files (Also tried to add standard kexts for osx86, without USB disabling kexts) Canadian Version of Vaio P with 1.33 / 60g All Sony upgrade installed, including BIOS update. Used variation of boot sequence (-f -v -x) <-- attempted safe mode due to stall at /usr/bin/***[**] Kexts Installed by Terminal
