    Mavericks Realtek ALC AppleHDA Audio

    Hi Toleda, You helped me once with an HDMI problem that we solved nicely. I am now hackintoshing a Lenovo Thinkpad Twist which has an ALC 269VC codec. I found this out by running Linux on it. I am running 10.9.4 which runs very well. I really only have this audio problem to solve to finish the machine. You have not mentioned this codec anywhere in the guides. How do I use your guide for an ALC 269VC? Thanks for the help. Srini
  2. PookyMacMan - anything is better than the 3150, I think. Right now I cannot use anything made by Apple - iwork, ilife etc. I am not looking to play games etc. but to just to use the Apple programs.
  3. I agree with you on point 1. There is a lot of confusion on QE/CI I have found. I have researched this thing a lot. The HP mini 110 seems to have been only made with the 3150. The HP Mini 1000 and the 211 seem to have used the GMA 950 ...... I think if I have to do this again I would use the Dell mini 10v which seems to have a 950 or the hp mini 1000. eBay also is the right place to get product cheaply. Now I have the experience to ensure that I have right graphics card before I hackintosh a product. Thanks.
  4. Pooky MacMan - I gave up on the Toshiba. I got no replies to my post on the DSDT forum. Does not matter. However, i have a question on netbooks. We did talk about the GMA 3150. However when I check under netbook compatibility it shows a checkmark against the HP Mini 110 for QE/CI. I don't understand. How do I get QE/CI on a GMA 3150? If there is I want to find out and fix it on my machine. None of the iwork programs or ilife really work well since apparently the Apple programs need QE/CI. Can you let me know if it is possible to get QE/CI on my HP Mini 110 with a GMA 3150? How? Thanks. Srini
  5. I have been trying to hackintosh this laptop for over 3 weeks now. ( I have already hackintoshed 3 netbooks HP, Asus). I am not able to get the MacOSX installed at all. The machine hangs up where it is looking for a boot device. I am using a tried and trusted USB installer that I used on the other 3 devices. I have tried all the boot flags to no avail. At this point I am completely stuck. I was able to get it installed once but it never booted into the installation reliably. So I know that it is possible to install macOSX on this device. I have been able to get a dsdt.aml file using Ubuntu which I am uploading. One thing that I have noticed is that the machine is extremely slow when it is booting from the USB installation key. I think the USBs are 1.1 since when i turned off the legacy USB support in the BIOS the USB ports were not recognized by either Windows or Linux. Don't know if this plays a role. I have uploaded the original dsdt file. This forum does not allow me to upload an actual dsdt.aml or even an excel file with the dsdt. I did this to get line numbers to make it easy for editing. PookyMacMan suggested that I may have a dsdt problem and I request help and advice here. Would be grateful for any direction. Original dsdt file.rtf
  6. I have just hackintoshed an HP Mini 110-3735. Everything is working fine with the usual 3150 issue. I wanted to replace the RTL 8188CE wireless card with one from the HP Mini 1000 which is a Broadcom and which works with airport. When I changed the card , the machine said "wrong wireless card". It looks like the BIOS is doing this check. I would like to modify the BIOS to disable this check so I can replace the card. Any body know how this can be done? I am currently operating the machine with a USB wireless dongle.Thanks.
  7. PookyMacMan Yes, it is a bios check. So now I am into BIOS for the HP and DSDT for the Toshiba! I am in the process of completing a guide entitled "Transitioning from Windows to Mac" It deals a lot more with setting up a machine to use all three operating systems on a regular basis. I hope to cover issues that are not covered on the boards. Hackintoshing itself is covered very well on the boards. I am almost done and will finish it by the weekend. How do I upload it for your review? I am keen to contribute something for all the help I received from everybody's knowledge on the boards. Srini
  8. PookyMacMan Remember we were working very hard to get the HP MIni 110 to boot and I was actually using the installer USB key as a starter? Well, that problem is also solved. This was a hard disk issue. Turns out that most hard drives read and write files in 512 byte sectors, which is what Chameleon and Chimera expect to work with. The disc in the HP Mini 110 is a Seagate Momentus Thin drive (only 7 mm high) and writes in 4096 byte sectors. So Chameleon was never writing to boot 1h, no matter what we did. I found a fix on the Internet that involves manual fixing with Terminal. It is now done and the HP Mini 110 boots on its own, finally. The one thing I cannot solve is the WiFi. The HP Mini 110 rejects the HP 1000 card and there is no support for the RTL 8188CE. I am dependent on a WiFi dongle. Srini
  9. PookyMacMan - I found a work around for the GRUB problem. It turns out there is a package called Grub customizer which is a GUI for GRUB. I removed the entries that I did not need in Grub (like the MacOS entries that did not work) and only left entries for Kubuntu and Windows. This way I can go straight to Winodws and then to MacOSX. The Mac entries in the grub table are gone so nobody will try to boot into Mac via Grub. Works very well.Srini Actually this works even better. I can set the default boot in Grub to be Windows and the default in EasyBCD to be MacOSX. So if the machine switches on and nothing is entered it will go straight to MacOSX! There is one more interesting problem. If you boot into Windows after the Mac, your clock setting is always off! There is a Windows registry fix for that also, so the time is always the same in all three systems.
  10. PookyMacMan..Couple of comments 1. I have laid the Toshiba aside for the time being since I will have to learn about DSDT etc. I will get back to it. 2. I am putting the finishing touches on my Asus and HP Mini 110. I also bought another Asus off ebay for $140. 3. The triple boot , wireless all work on the ASUS. One issue. I loaded MacOSX, Kubuntu and Winodows in that order so I could use Easy BCD to do the triple booting. It all worked beautifully. I thought I was done with the project until I carried out all the updates in kubuntu. I did not change versions...But usually there are 100s of MB of updates. After I was finished, I found out Grub had taken over the booting ( as if Kubuntu was loaded last). I am going into Grub, then windows and then Easy BCD. It appears no matter what one does, GRUB figures out a way to get control! Any ideas? 4. I bought an HP Mini 1000 wireless card to install in my HP MINI 110 since it can run under Airport. However, the machine will not accept the card. When I boot, it says "wrong wireless card" It will not allow me to boot until the old wireless card is back. I have a 110-3735. I can get the HP to boot by itself but I guess I am stuck with an external USB wireless adapter! Srini
  11. PookyMacMan, I am very bothered that I can't fix this myself. There may be something fundamentally wrong here. An awful thought hit me. This Toshiba laptop has an IDE hard drive. I have no way of changing to AHCI in the BIOS. I can only change boot order. Under the circumstances I am wondering if I am trying to do something impossible. Then I tell myself the machine does boot into MacOSX and I can use the Mac. However this is very much once in a while. It is very intermittent but it does work once in a while. I have gone backwards and forwards in the BIOS and cannot find anything to change. I am really stymied.
  12. Here you are. I am not worrying about the Apple PS/2 controller. I think I can always get the voodoo kext. But it hangs immediately after the RTL8139 message. This is a repeating error.
  13. I am done with the ASus and the HP. I am trying to get the Toshiba up and running. It is crazy. It boots every once in a while to the main Mac screen but usually it gets stuck. I have tried every conceivable bootflag. It goes upto recognizing the boot disk and saysBSD root: disk 0s1...Then it looks at the ethernet card RTL 8139 and says register EEPROM--flow control is disabled and usually hangs right there. Once in a while it goes to Running fsck on the boot volume and then hangs. But usually it hangs after looking at the Ethernet RTL 8139 card. I think this is the main hangup. Any suggestions? Srini
  14. PookyMacMan..Found a very simple way to do it. There is a magnifying glass icon at the top of the Finder window. There are actually two - one with a red line through it. Clicking the one without the red line enables all the hidden files and clicking the one with the red line through disables all of them. I just clicked the magnifying glass , trashed the file, replaced it and hid the whole thing again. Voila!
  15. PookyMacMan, thanks for the info. I jumped too soon. The Toshiba does not boot reliably. I am figuring that one out.In the meantime another question. I am trying to replace a boot file with an older one to get me my 1024x600 res on the Asus. It will not let me do that saying" Cannot replace boot file because it is invisible" I imagine I have to make it visible before I can replace it. How do I make a file visible? I have already tried running "defaults write com.apple.Finder ShowAllFiles YES" in terminal and restarting Finder. That has not helped. Thanks,
