  1. Note: I'm about to update this guide & installation pack to v2.0. This will take a few days, so stay tuned. For the Vietnamese guide, please visit HERE. About the supported models Perhaps you don't know, but in my old (and now deprecated) guide posted at OSX.VN, I received a lot of questions like "Is this guide applicable to my ABC laptop?" or "Can you help me installing OS X on XYZ laptop?". For me I consider those questions are annoying, as I think they should know the fact that a guide for one model cannot be applied in the same way to another model; it should be adapted. So here in my new guide, I have to state that this guide is designed for ASUS K501LX, and can be applied in a very similar way to K501LB but not for other laptops. Therefore users with other models should only take this guide as reference only. Here below is my table of support degree: Before posting your question, you should check whether your model is supported in this table, and should include the hardware specification in your question's content or signature. I won't answer any question in the form of "Is this guide applicable to my ABC laptop?" (you should answer it yourself). Any 'asking for help' questions whose hardware specification is not included in the content or in signature will also be ignored. I hope you will agree and follow the above advices, so that the topic will be kept from unrelated and meaningless questions. Actually I consider myself to be open to questions and feedbacks, it's just that any question posted here should be related to the topic IMO. Contents References Manual update sources Acknowledgement I. Hardware specification and current working status II. Preinstallation III. Installation IV. Postinstallation V. Conclusion A-1. Postinstall optimization A-2. How to patch DSDT For ASUS K501LX A-3. How to generate proper serials for use in SMBIOS A-4. Information about patching AppleHDA FAQ References This guide, as well as my actual installation progress, are referred to the following sources (maybe I forgot to list some of the sources, but these are the main ones): Note: Here I will not include the link to the sources but only titles and authors, as some of the sources may violate our forum rules. Manual update sources The latest version of the kexts and some of the tools used in this guide can be found here, if you want to update them by yourself instead of waiting for my updates: Acknowledgement The work of getting El Capitan run smoothly on my laptop with nearly all the hardware recognized could not be done without the help and contributions of many people. Here in this guide, I would like to thank: The authors of the guides and posts that I referred to. Those useful documents made the OS X installation process become easier and helped me to optimize OS X after install. The authors of Clover Bootloader and all the kexts and tools used in this guide. A lot of works have been made to the development of these kexts and tools, and the benefits that they bring are undeniable. Sơn Huỳnh for answering some of my questions during the error-fixing progress after installation. RehabMan for helping me solve the black screen issue after wake and suggesting the methods to deal with some problems such as disabling discrete graphics card and USB 3.0 on El Capitan. His collection of tiny SSDT samples also helped me to implement the 'hotpatch' method in this guide. Mirone for his various AppleHDA patch samples for Realtek ALC233 codec, which helped me to correctly patch AppleHDA for my codec. and the others that I forgot to mention.
