  1. Snow Leopard on Vaio VPCEB3M1E info needed

    I have this notebook and I installed working OS X Snow Leopard. To install you need BootCD (I used UniBootX from Polish forum about OSx86), retail disk of OS X (not from Macbook) and format disk to GPT. Then you install clean system without any kexts/mods. Boot from BootCD. After this you update system to 10.6.8 and before restart you must rollback AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext from 10.6.7 and you must install FakeSMC.kext. After reboot you can install Cameleon (I use ChameleonWizard) and generate DSDT. Patch DSDT for our WiFi card. Install VoodooHDA.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext and one more to use PS2. Reboot. Sound and keyboard should work. After this we can work with graphic and USB. To work USB in org.chameleon.boot you must write USBBusFix=Yes (in chameleon wizard is option to chect). Next install kext for ATI graphic from Lion. and in org.chameleon.boot write section GraphicEnabler=Yes Ati=Hoolcock. Reboot with monitor conected od VGA. With SwitchResX 4 ser resolution to 1366x768. on thi moment you have working OSX on this notebook. Use smbios.plist and SMBIOS.kext to correct working wi-fi. I don't know to work sleep because I didn't work about this.

  3. Sony Vaio VPCCW21FX

    If you have PCI Configuration Begin error you must rollback this kexts: AppleACPIPlatform IOPCIFamily from Mac OS X 10.6.7
  4. Sony VPC-EB : [How to?]

    @gizmonder please write what you choose in instalator. Write what you run ati 5650 with QE/CI and witch do you have bootloader?
  5. Sony VPC-EB : [How to?]

    try this -v -busratio=18 try it in 32bit mode I never use Hazard distribution... only iAtkos v2 and after that installation run. Maybe you need to boot with legacy kernel. then try this: -v kernel=insert_here_path_to_legacy_kernel_on_dvd
  6. Sony VPC-EB : [How to?]

    I'm sure about it... because I start install a MAC OS X on VAIO VPCEB3M1E, and I have WIN 7 and with nawcom bootCD i install osx on the second partition on my disk and I don't need to reinstall windows. BootCD is a special CD with bootloader and kexts... with this CD you can boot the Mac OS X. After the installation with BootCD you can install chameleon (chameleon is bootloader) and you don't need have this cd to run Mac OS. Yes I suggest to install Retail. In this moment I have only clean installation Mac OS X 10.6.3 so if you will have any trouble with wi-fi, audio or other i can't help because i don't know what to do.
  7. Sony VPC-EB : [How to?]

    You can install Mac OS X Retail on your notebook. - ATI 5650 is fully supported in MAC OS X - Tutorial is on the forum - 12GB is minimum to working with clean MAC OS, if you want working with xCode I suggest that you should create a 50GB partition because in MAC OS 10.5 the NTFS partition was not fully supported (i don't know how is in SL). - It's not true that you have to reinstall WIN 7 after installation MAC OS X. You can use nawcom's BootCD (if you want install Retail, i don't know how is on any distribution) Sorry for my english.
