  1. I'm wondering the same. I want to build an i5 hack for christmas, but i want to make sure the P55A-UD4P will work with full compatibility. I don't really care if i can't run usb 3.0 or SATA 3.0 in OSX, but i want to get that board so that i will be basically future proofed for a while.

    Snow Leopard on VAIO P(VGN-P90HS) working!

    I'm totally lost here. Exactly what is this ryu?
  3. So has there been any more headway on the guide you speak of xsmurf? I plan on a new build for x-mas and i would love to use the new GA-P55A-UD4P. It has USB 3.0 fr3z3rburn

    @allanm9 So you have your dual boot with Windows 7 and SL with chameleon and GUID functioning correctly?

    @allanm9 If the last thing you did as far as installing OSes or altering partitions, then you should have the Chameleon partition booting. Get a copy of Gparted Live CD and see if the Win7 partition or the OSX partition is labeled "boot". If both are flagged as boot, then there is something wrong. I have had that happen before. I can't remember how i fixed it, but i will re-install when i get back from out of town this weekend and post monday on it. fr3z3rburn

    @allanm9 Did you install windows 7 or SL first? I installed Windows 7 first. The reason for this is because when you install windows 7, it sets the Windows partition as active. If you install SL AFTER that, when you install the Chameleon bootloader on SL, it sets the SL/Chameleon bootloader partition to active. Try that and then let me know your results.

    Vaio P Snow Leopard

    Okay. For the files in that folder, go here and get Kext Helper and just use kext helper to install the kexts in System/Library/Extensions of the package.

    So I made a small totourial on how exactly to get SL running on the VAIO P. I take no credit other than for writing this sing post. All my thanks go to ryu123 and all of the other people that actually did work. 1. Restore Snow Leopard Retail Disc to USB drive (16 + GB) 2. Use Chameleon 2 RC3 Bootloader installer to install Chameleon to USB drive just restored with SL DVD from here. 3. Copy all contents from package from latest package by ryu123 as superuser from here. 4. Copy "boot" from earlier package by ryu123 as superuser from here. 5. Plug in Flash drive. 6. Boot from Flash Drive (either set boot from USB first in BIOS or select from Boot menu) 7. Install Snow Leopard. 8. Use USB to boot to new SL install. 9. Set up SL. 10. After install is set up, repeat steps 2-4 to the Partition that you installed SL to. 11. Enjoy your new feline flavored OS. Notes: You can do a dual boot (Win7, OS X) by using Disk utility on the patched SL Thumb drive to partition the internal drive as GUID with a HFS+ partition and a FAT32 partition and install Windows first and select the FAT32 partition. You can either install directly to FAT32, or you can reformat to NTFS. It's up to you. After installing windows, Install SL just as above. Now you will have 2 great OSes with a beautiful graphical bootloader. (I recommend the "Choose your OS" theme here. Just edit theme.pist to 1600x768 on all values that have to do with screen resolution.) Also, I have had the best luck just doing everything in GUID, so do not ask me about anything if you use MBR and it messes up. fr3z3rburn

    Vaio P Snow Leopard

    You must be doing something wrong. I've installed snow leopard on my P around 6 times already without any problems. Here are the correct steps to take: 1. Restore Snow Leopard Retail Disc to USB drive (16 + GB) 2. Use Chameleon 2 RC3 Bootloader installer to install Chameleon to USB drive just restored with SL DVD from here. 3. Copy all contents from package from latest package by ryu123 as superuser from here. 4. Copy "boot" from earlier package by ryu123 as superuser from here. 5. Plug in Flash drive. 6. Boot from Flash Drive (either set boot from USB first in BIOS or select from Boot menu) 7. Install Snow Leopard. 8. Use USB to boot to new SL install. 9. Set up SL. 10. After install is set up, repeat steps 2-4 to the Partition that you installed SL to. 11. Enjoy your new feline flavored OS.

    I'd kinda like to know the same. I think you should be fine if you just install 7 first, then install leopard. I did it like this one time on another computer: 1. boot into disk utility, 2 partitions (1HFS+, 1 FAT32) with GUID partition Table 2. Boot win 7 disc. reformat FAT32 into NTFS 3. Install win 7 on NTFS 4. Install SL on HFS+ 5. Enjoy amazing Chameleon Bootloader and 2 great OSes.

    So if i understand what you are trying to say, you want a hacked distribution of SL that will work for the VAIO P. There may be one, but it wouldn't be possible to update through sotware update. the method shown on this forum is the better way because it is as close to a true mac as possible. All you have to do is restore the disc to a FD and copy a few files. its really not that hard. I think i will be making a tutorial soon on how to do it exactly so that people can understand a little better.

    That's kinda what i was thinking. Isn't OS X built on a UNIX code anyway? I'm no coder, but i thought it would be a lot easier to port the Linux driver than the Win driver. P.S. Plz don't flame me. I'm just now learning java in my CS 100 class.

    Is anyone working on GMA 500 support right now? not to be bothersome.

    If you installed VoodooHDA.kext and deleted AppleHDA.kext, you shouldn't have distorted sound. I haven't tried ryu123's new version yet, but you don't have to delete AppleHDA.kext with the new method. @alanm9 I thought you were talking about the expansion ports that came with the Vaio. Has anyone got that stupid little thing working yet?
