  1. Hi all. I am trying to install OS Lion to Sony VAIO S1512 the new model with Ivy bridge i7 and HD Intel 4000 graphics. It has almost everything from the Realtek (Audio, Network Family adapter,... etc.) Now, I first tryied to install it on external HDD, but here is the problem... I cannot pass the black screen. I already have a USB Bootable flash drive with clean installation of Lion that worked on my HP Probook, but here doesn't work. When it should get to the installation screen after loading the Kexts it stops at the BLACK SCREEN and doesn't go further. Any ideas? Oh... is it possible to install to second partition of my SSD which already has a Windows 8 on it? Thank you for your help.
  2. Hi there I'm a newbie on all this concerning to Mac for Intel. Recently I succesfully installed iATKOS ML2 on a PC so I thought there was not issues with the installation on my laptop. I'm installing from a DVD burned with TransMac 10.4. The OS X version: 10.8.2, the iAtkos ML2 version. When the laptop boots, the gray screen appears as normal, but if I press F8 or any key or even if I do nothing, the screen freezes and there's no more activity on disk. I've tried this several times, I checked the BIOS settings and still doesn't work. I used the same DVD on a PC and it works perfectly. My laptop specs (provided by Sony): Sony Vaio SVE14113ELW Intel Core™ i3-2370M, 2.40GHz, Intel® HM76 Express Chipset HDD 320GB 5400 RPM 6 GB DDR3 SDRAM -originally 2, I added 4- Intel HD Graphics 3000 BIOS boot (no UEFI) As a newbie, I don't know when and how to use the boot flags. The goal is to have it working along Windows 8 Pro. Thanks in advance for your help.
  3. UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is now very possible to boot my installer straight off the laptop itself! (Instead of swapping out hdds and stuff) Just install a kext from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/genericusbxhci/. From what I've found, Sony's motherboard uses XHCI to manage even the USB 2.0 drives. With this kext in place in /S/L/E in my OSX Installer, all three ports (USB2 + 3 + 3) work now. P.S. I am using OSX 10.9 Installer but this should work with ML too. Hi Everyone! I managed to get my Sony Vaio SVS1311FGS (Vaio S 2012 Series) on working with Mountain Lion DP4! Spec: i5-3210M (somehow unrecognized, cpuid model not found etc, but works) Intel HD 4000 (main GPU for OSX, works fully *details later below) NVIDIA Geforce GT-640M (Optimus cards are useless for Mac. However, I would like to know how to disable it via DSDT.) Realtek 10EC:8168 Ethernet card (work in progress, I haven't searched deeply for a 64-bit kext that would load in ML) Intel Wifi Card (garbage. I'm using a RTL8192SU USB dongle) Sound Card (lol, I don't know the model, but it works fine with VoodooHDA) (Should be the Intel HD Audio) Notes Beforehand: You cannot plonk in a USB OSX Installer made from either: ######, MyHack or any other USB solution. The absence of a BIOS mod (which I would have avoided anyway) to enable AHCI to get the USB Installer to recognize itself renders using USB Installers useless I'm not sure about using DVDs. I used a Sandy Bridge laptop to act as the installing machine instead. I switched their hard drives and got the thing to work, as my Sandy Bridge is hackintosh-friendly You need a special bootloader. No Chameleon-ML, No Chimera 1.10. You need those special ones OSX CANNOT BOOT FROM UEFI MODE. I use UEFI to go into Windows and Legacy into Mac. YOU MIGHT RUN INTO TROUBLE TRYING TO ENABLE CLICKING ON TRACKPAD. I've somehow managed to enable mine through the keyboard Steps: Partition the hard drive on any partition program (u can use diskpart or Disk Management from Windows itself) Remove it and place it into another machine where the USB Installers have successfully booted Get OSX installed. The hard drive is in a GPT format due to UEFI, no modding of Installer needed. When the hard drive is placed back into the Vaio S, get into the BIOS through F2 at boot and change Booting Mode into 'Legacy' and Place 'External Device' before 'Internal Hard Drive' in boot priorities THE NEXT STEP REQUIRES AN EXISTING MAC, to install the custom bootloader on the USB device. Get the USB Installer, insert it into the other Mac or Hackintosh and install http://blog.stuffedcow.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Chameleon-2.1svn-r2012.pkg, a bootloader by stuffedcow for HD 4000 users. Set the settings on the Installer as follows: Standard boot, GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Ignore the HDMIAudio, NVIDIA, ATI options. When you're done, navigate to the Extra folder on the USB stick, and place the DSDT.aml attached in the zip file in this folder. Boot the computer with this USB stick. When at the boot prompt for the OSX partition in the HDD, type: -v -f "Graphics Mode"="1366x768x32" HD4000PlatformId=3 This should get it all working. Fix Everything Up (Network, etc). Others: INTEL HD 4000 Credits: http://blog.stuffedcow.net/2012/07/intel-hd4000-qeci-acceleration/ The table for HD 4000 is there. Those platform-ids that start with 0166 are for mobile (ours). Those with 0162 are for desktops. If you wish to try the platform-id for the alphabets, a is 10 and b is 11. I've tested them and the platform-id 3 should work for ours. It enabled Internal Screen and HDMI. I'm researchiing on editing the connector info for VGA. Some info on connectors for HD 4000: http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/60010-official-hd-4000-support-11.html NVIDIA GeForce GT640M Useless. Optimus does not work on OSX and probably never will as Apple uses MUXes. Do Note that the Speed/Stamina switch can be switched to either option. OSX does not care. However, I'd like to know how to disable it via DSDT to save battery life. REALTEK 10EC:8168 CARD In progress. INTEL WIFI Nope. Nada. Intel wifi was never used by Apple. USB 2.0 This will work if you use the USBPackage attached. Install the files in the folder 1 first, before installing those in 2.USB3 is a work in progress by other people using Intel's USB3 Controllers, although some have worked by changing XHCI setting in their BIOSes (no such option for us) SOUND Use VoodooHDA for Mountain Lion. SLEEP Using the SleepEnabler for Mountain Lion, but haven't tested yet. TRACKPAD Mine is Synaptics, so it works. But sensitivity needs changing. DSDT.zip USBPackage.zip

    ALC269VC on Sony VAIO SVE1512

    Hi, I'm on OSX since 10.5 and 4 laptops to date, but this one is a pain. I have a sloppy, but working Clover based 10.11.1 on HDD, but since I just bought a SSD drive, I decided to start from scratch, looking for latest solutions. I found an excellent guide for similar device, but audio does not work. I do have a semi working patched AppleHDA, v2.5.3 by Mirone (attached), found somewhere years ago, but in the past I had some issues after wake (seems ok now) and audio through HDMI does not work. Thing is that apparently my ALC269VC is somehow a very rare thing manufactured by Sony, I can't really find any proper solution. I thought that someone could help me doing this properly once for all, using DummyHDA to persist stuff between updates. Device info: CodecCommander: ....CodecVendor Id: 0x10ec0269CodecCommander: ....Codec Address: 0 CodecCommander: ....Subsystem Id: 0x104d6900 CodecCommander: ....PCI Sub Id: 0x104d90ab Vendor Id: 10ec:0269 Subsystem Id: 104d:6900 Revision Id: 100202 I do believe that this ALSA report here has the same HDA codec information as my device (ctrl+f Realtek ALC269VC). Any support would be greatly appreciated, with beer donations. Cheers! AppleHDA-ALC268VC-2.5.3-Mirone.kext.zip Sony VAIO SVE1512M1EW - Clover config, DSDT, codec dump and IOReg.zip
  5.  OS X 10.11 El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony VAIO S PLEASE REFER TO THE GUIDE. I WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS IF ALREADY ANSWERED IN THE GUIDE! BY FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE YOU AGREE TO TAKE THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF LOSING DATA. ALWAYS BACKUP! This guide will give you step-by-step instructions on How to Install OS X 10.11 El Capitan on Sony VAIO SVS13. Sony VAIO S13p (SVS13A2C5E) Specs: Intel Core i7-3520M 12GB SDRAM Intel HD Graphics 4000 NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M Samsung 850 Evo 250GB What's working? Intel HD4000 Graphics with QE/CI Acceleration HDMI Sound (Speakers, Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI, USB) Keyboard, Touchpad USB 2.0/3.0 Webcam Optical Drive Ethernet Bluetooth (Intel) Brightness Power button Sleep/Wake UEFI/NVRAM *WiFi (Broadcom/Atheros) *Airport Extreme 2,4GHz/5GHz *802.11ac/n/g/b/a *Bluetooth (Broadcom/Atheros) *Airdrop *Handoff & Hotspot with BT4LE What's partially working? Bluetooth Intel BT worked OOB but does not feature Handoff since it's not a BT4LE. Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one. Webcam Since the Exmor sensor built in is not the best, you get a dark image in OS X. Windows uses software/drivers to increase the brightness. What's not working? Intel WiFi Apple doesn't use Intel WiFi. Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one. Discrete graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 640M uses NVIDIA Optimus for dual-configuration which is not supported the same way on OS X. VGA Apple removed this feature in OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion SD-Card/Memory Stick Reader (no drivers for OS X) Speed/Stamina switch Fingerprint sensor (no drivers for OS X) Disc Eject/Assist/Web/VAIO buttons You need… ... an empty USB flash drive or an external hard drive (8gb at least) ... a Mac or a virtual machine with OS X (10.6.8 or later) On your Mac/OS X VM Download OS X 10.11 El Capitan from the App Store Create the OS X Installer You can actually create the OS X installer on the (external) hard drive but to keep things simple from now on I will refer to ‚USB‘. IF YOU HAVE IMPORTANT DATA ON YOUR USB, PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP! THE USB WILL BE FORMATTED AND EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED! You can create the USB with either a MBR or a GPT partition scheme. If you select MBR, you will have to manually create a FAT partition for CLOVER EFI and a separate HFS+J partition for the OS X Installer. With GPT you just need 1 HFS+J partition and Disk Utility creates a hidden EFI partition. Since we will use this USB with a UEFI system, we can use GPT. On legacy system you need a MBR USB. Create Partition(s) on USB Open Disk Utility under /Applications/Utilities. Select the USB. Click on the Partition tab. Click on Partition Layout > 1 partition. Click on Options. Select GUID Partition Table. Apply with OK. Under Format select Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Under Name rename the partition to „install_osx“. Click on Apply. Click on Partition. When it’s finished creating the USB partition(s) close Disk Utility. Make OS X Installer on USB*1 Open Terminal and type this command, then press Enter: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_osx --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction You need a password for this command*2. Type your password and press Enter. This process can take several minutes, depending on the USB write speed. Mine took 5 minutes to finish. Close Terminal. You now have a OS X installer for real Macs. We need the Clover bootloader to actually boot the OS X Installer on a non-Mac system. *1 The createinstallmedia method is not supported under OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Use alternative methods. *2 If you don't have a password (blank), you need to set one under System Preferences > User & Groups > Change Password Install Clover to USB Download Clover EFI bootloader. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ Open the Clover installer package. Click on Continue, Continue. Click on Change Install Location. Select your USB drive now called ‚Install OS X El Capitan’. Don't select the internal Hard Drive on your real Mac/VM! Click on Continue. Click on Customize. Check ‚Install for UEFI booting only‘. ‚Install Clover in the ESP‘ will be selected automatically and installed to the hidden EFI partition. Under Drivers64UEFI check ‚OsxAptioFixDrv2-64‘. Optional: Install BlueMac under Themes. Click on Install. Type your password. Click on Install Software. When it’s finished, press Close. Since the EFI partition is hidden, we need to mount it to copy some files. But the Clover installer already mounted it.*3 Go to the EFI partition (on your Desktop).

Select Desktop as your location. Click Save. Click Don’t Append. Rename the config file on your desktop to ‚config.plist‘. Copy config.plist from your Desktop to /EFI/CLOVER and replace the default one. Make a backup of your /EFI/CLOVER folder to the other USB partition (‚Install OS X El Capitain‘). You’ll need it later. Create a folder for that. Eject the EFI partition. Eject the USB. *3 If you unmounted/ejected the EFI partition of the USB, read the Mouning EFI section under Post Installation of this guide. On the Sony VAIO S BACKUP ALL YOUR IMPORTANT DATA BEFORE PROCEEDING. THE HARD DRIVE WILL BE FORMATTED AND EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED! BIOS Settings Shut down your laptop. Press the Assist button. Press F2 to boot into BIOS. Restore default settings under the Exit tab. Make sure ‚UEFI‘ is on. Make sure ‚Booting from external device‘ is on.*4 Save settings. Shut down your laptop. *4 This option External Device Boot applies when you set the external device to first boot priority. it doesn't affect pressing F11 to boot from External Device. Boot the OS X Installer Plug in your USB into a USB 3 port. The USB 2 port will not work without GenericXHCI (GenericXHCI does not work in OS X 10.11 El Capitan anyway). Press the Assist button. Press F11 to boot from external device.*5 Press ENTER to boot the OS X Installer. *5 If you have set the External Device as first Boot Priority you don't have to boot from Rescue Mode (Assist Button). Just connect the USB and boot your Laptop. Installing OS X El Capitan Select language. Continue. Launch Disk Utility. Erase your hard disk. Rename your partition and apply. Exit Disk Utility. Install OS X. Continue. Select your hard drive partition. Install. This process creates the Recovery partition. After a while the OS X Installer will automatically restart and beging the real installation. The real installation can take several minutes, depending on read/write speeds. When it’s finished you will again boot into your USB’s Clover Menu. Select your partition in Clover Boot Menu and boot into OS X. Configure OS X. Installing Clover to the Hard Drive To boot without USB you need to install Clover again - this time your Hard Drive. It’s a similar process to installing it to USB. Download Clover EFI bootloader. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ Open the Clover installer package. Click on Continue, Continue. Click on Change Install Location. Select your Hard Drive partition. Continue. Don't select your USB. Click on Customize. Check ‚Install for UEFI booting only‘. ‚Install Clover in the ESP‘ will be selected automatically. Under Drivers64UEFI check ‚OsxAptioFixDrv2-64‘. Check ‚Install RC scripts on target volume‘ (Optional) Check ‚Install Clover Preference Pane‘ Click on Install. When it’s finished, press Close. Enable ‚Hard disks’ under Finder > Preferences > General > Show these items on the desktop. You can disable it later. Open the folder /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI Delete VBoxHFS.efi Open your USB drive. Copy the contents of the EFI-backup to EFI partition of your hard drive. Replace the files. Open the folder /EFI/CLOVER/kexts. Rename ‚Other‘ to ‚10.11‘. Restart your laptop without the USB and boot into OS X. Post Installation Mounting EFI Whenever you install something to the EFI partition, you will need to first mount it.

    Sony Vaio Duo 11

    Hello everyone! First of all, I'd really like to say thanks to all these that contribute to this "scene" - or as it was said int he quiz, "hobby". Yestarday, I bought a Vaio duo 11 to side with my MacBook and I knew about hackintosh, so I had all the resources - especially, a real mac - just at hand, and tried everything out. Here are my results: Prepairing a usb device with myHack: Works like a charm. But you seriously must make sure you use MBR. Otherwise, it's acting funny. Thus, make sure you DISABLE intel VT and XHPI mode in BIOS. But once that is done, it just...boots. Installing Clover to a GPT formatted drive: Yes, works, but not OOB. To get Clover to boot, do this: 1. Download the Clover EFI package. 2. Start the installer, click "Select volume" and then your volume, then click next. 3. Now click customize. Here, you gotta check "Install to ESP", "Drivers64" and under themes, check the "metal" theme - it's the default. You may check another theme as well so you have an option later. I recommend bootcamp, its very nice for your eyes and if you used a mac before, its just like "Aha!". 4. Now we gotta edit the EFI files. Since a sort of "bug" in the clover installer, it lets the EFI partition stay mounted...which it actually shouldn't imo. Anyway, we can use that fact for something good. ( In case it didn't stay mounted, read my footnotes below. ) Open your Finder, and open the EFI partition. Or, press CMD+SHIFT+G and type /Volumes/EFI and hit ENTER. In there, open the EFI folder and create a new folder called BOOT. In this folder, you'll copy the files CLOVERX64.efi, CLOVERIA32.efi AND the config.plist file. Now rename the CLOVER files into boot - i.e.: BOOTX64.efi. If you installed a different theme, like the bootcamp one, open config.plist BEFORE you copy your files, edit the Theme setting and THEN copy the file into the BOOT folder. 5. You should end up with a structure like this: /Volumes/EFI/ /Volumes/EFI/EFI/ /Volumes/EFI/BOOT/ /Volumes/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi /Volumes/EFI/BOOT/BOOTIA32.efi /Volumes/EFI/BOOT/config.plist /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/......... Now, plug the device into your Vaio, press the ASSIST key, select "Boot from external" and Clover should pop up. However, when I use clover to boot, I get stuck at a "Waiting for root device" message - it obviously waits for a device. Its the same error that occured to some other people, and it is actulyl the only message in which you'll see a piece of XML! However, it looks like it has troubble with some drivers. I sadly don't have all the myHack drivers at hand, nor do I know how to install them myself. By the way, I used an entirely vanilla install of OS X. I used the one I bought from the App Store. Thus, I placed the Extras folder that is put into the drive's root by myhack into my clover folder into kexts/10.8 - of course, i moved the contents of the folder into the one i just mentioned, otherwise it wouldnt work...afaik o.o; As soon as I manage to get this working, Ill inform you. Again, when I legacy-boot Mac with chamelion and the image created by myHack, it works like a charm. I just didnt install it because I dont want to wipe my windows just yet Regards, Ingwie Phoenix EDIT 1 I managed to determine how myHack installed the image...and what mistake I did. You have to restore from InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg first - then copy al the files fromt he root of InstallESD.dmg into the device as well. In other words, merge InstallESD and BaseSystem. Also, use myHack and run myFix to integrate all the missing kexts. that totally worked for me. I am now EFI booiting OS X. Touchscreen - who didnt expect it? - doesnt work. Stylus does, but with some oddities. Wifi isnt recognized yet. I dont know about the rest yet. Also, to boot up, you need to use Safe Mode (3rd entry in Clover when hiting spacebar on the OS X icon.)
  7. Hi All, I'm trying to install 10.9 Mavericks on a Sony Vaio (sve1712bcxb https://docs.sony.com/release/specs/SVE1712BCXB_mksp.pdf) without much success. I have created a Clover R2689 EFI USB drive per the following http://rampagedev.wordpress.com/os-x-10-8-mountain-lion/ using Mavericks from the App Store. I have ensured that the Sony Bios, which is severely locked down, does have UEFI enabled and Secure Boot disabled. I have tried using the USB drive in various USB 2.0 ports on the machine. When I attempt to boot from the USB drive, I get "Waiting on <dict ID="0"><IOProviderClass</key>... followed by Still Waiting For Root Device message (see attached for screen capture). I have tried various bootargs per the guide including -v cpus=1 npci=0×2000, -v npci=0×2000, -x -v, -v GraphicsEnabler=no, USBBusFix=Yes, etc. I'm sure I'm missing something simple here so any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thx Josh
  8.

Thank you in advance for your time
  10. This is still an ongoing project, but I have lion installed and working on a sony VPCSA/VPCSB, better known as the sony vaio s series. This is not for the inexperienced, or anyone who can’t work though problems by themselves, as you will no doubt encounter them. Please do not do this if this is your first hackintosh. Currently looking for someone who can fix up the DSDT and fix the remaining problems. If you think you can help, ioreg dumps and the current DSDT can be found in the pack. Any help or fixes would be much appreciated. What works fully: Display (using ugly DSDT patches) Graphics (full QE/CI and resolution) USB (USB3 port doesn't work, probably never will) Sound (uses voodooHDA, would rather patch appleHDA. Please post if you have info for an ALC275) Ethernet (Using lnx2mac RTL81XX kext) Sleep Brightness Battery (Using voodooBattery, unsure what dsdt mods are needed for native) Power button What works partially: Power management - Works enough for sleep, and changes states, but still runs much hotter than windows, and notably noisier. Fix lies in a custom SSDT or some dsdt mods for sony’s power management options. Also, both graphics cards seem to be loaded, but unsure if this is a problem, or the cause. Trackpad - Works only as a PS2 mouse, and seems very particular about which kexts it likes. What doesn't work: Wifi - Intel wireless will never work on mac. I suggest an ATHEROS AR9287, super cheap on ebay, and works with dsdt edits. Bluetooth - Didn't work oob. haven't looked at it since. Graphics switching - probably will never work. Quirks: Random kernel panics on boot often. Some are linked to GFX, some to CPUPM, and some don't have any kexts involved, just cpu panics. Strange. Need a DSDT master to check out his one. Wifi needs to be turned on manually on boot. needs a DSDT fix, I know what to put, but not where to put it so it runs on boot. What you will need: A usb prepared with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], laptop support enabled The latest [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] This pack Time (lots) Patience (even more) The latest combo update (10.7.2) The Guide: Pre Installation: First the included dsdt needs to be edited. For whatever reason, Mac OS can’t detect the internal display without manually injecting its information, known as the EDID. This needs to be dumped from windows, and then added to the dsdt. To do this, you can use "moninfo" from the pack. Run this, and the raw hex data will be displayed at the bottom of the report. This information needs to be added to the dsdt, in the device GFX0. You can edit the DSDT provided with “DSDTEditor” by mald0n. Before this data can be inserted, it must be prepared by inserting “0x” before each hex digit. Look device (GFX0) in the existing DSDT, and it is clear where the data should go. The existing data may work if you have the 1600x900 screen. Otherwise, you will need to edit it with your own. The completed DSDT needs to go in the /Extra folder of the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] usb. Now you need to install the “advanced mode” bios. This can be done by running the included bios updater. Providing you do not pull the power during the update, this update has no chance of damaging your laptop. However, some of the options it enables might. Use with caution. In the bios, using the new options, we must enable AHCI mode on the IDE controller. Otherwise you will get the dreaded “waiting for root device” on boot. That’s it for preparation, now for installing! Installation: This part is pretty straightforward. Boot off the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] USB. Select the USB in the chameleon menu, and let it boot. If it kernel panics, try again. It should eventually boot (At this point, it has a pretty high booting success rate). The installation will need a whole HDD. You can format one correctly with “Disk Utility”, an option in the menu bar when preparing to install. I have a dual boot set up, but I will not instruct you how to do this. When the install has finished, it will reboot automatically. Booting from the USB again, this time select the disk you installed to. The first boot wizard will run, and demand you insert a USB keyboard. You need to do this, even just for a second, to proceed. After you get that screen to go away, you will not need one again. You might however need a USB mouse, as the trackpad might not be working. It seems to randomly decide if it wants to work with the apple kexts. This can be fixed with the included kexts later. Congratulations, lion is installed and somewhat functional! Post Installation: This is still somewhat WIP. Once you get to the desktop, run the latest combo update, and update, but don’t reboot. copy the DSDT to the desktop. You can now install [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. You will need to find and select: · User DSDT · USB Rollback · The latest VoodooHDA · The lnx2Mac Realtek Ethernet kext · MacBookPro8,1 smbios.plist · (optional) nullcpupowermanagement (though power management does sort of work, this improves stability at the moment, at the cost of heat and noise). If you select this, you will need to select Sleepenabler and EvoReboot as well · (optional) FakeSMC plugins · (optional, but recommended) Kext utility and Show All Files. We will need a kext installer soon. After [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] installation, drag all the kexts from the pack onto kext utility to install them. Now, reboot, and prey. Booting of a GPT disk is somewhat funny. I have an odd setup, using easyBCD to install neogrub onto my windows HDD, and then configuring neogrub to chainload chameleon on the mac HDD. The alternative is downloading modified files for a mbr installation, which should work just fine. I can post more details on this if needed. Now lion should be running, and functionalish. Please post if you have any problems or questions, and I would appreciate the aid of anyone who has the DSDT editing knowledge to work out the problems that stop this becoming my main OS on this laptop. I may have missed some things. If something just doesn't work for you, then please ask. Thanks to everyone who has allowed me to get this far, developers, dsdt hackers, I love you guys! VAIOPACK.zip
  11. SONY VAIO FIT macOS SIERRA 10.12.3 UNDER CONSTRUCTION AGAIN. --- Sorry guys, there have been some things missing, or had been in wrong order. Because of the extrem long guide, I removed the content temporarily. Will be fixed soon.
  12. Hey all! This is my first post here so you will have to point me in the right direction on the forums if I screw up! So I have this circa 2007 Sony Vaio (VGN-NR10E) that I decided to install OSX on. For reference, so far OS X 10.6.8 is installed and updated using ###### and a legit Snow Leopard retail DVD. It now boots flawlessly every time with the chameleon bootloader. Specs + progress list: Intel Pentium Dual core T2310 1.46GHz - Working and recognised Intel GMA X3100 Graphics chipset - Working and recognised, although is somewhat slow + lacks brightness control Display (1280x800) - Working with res set by SwitchResX Unknown Motherboard - Working with unmodified DSDT but could need work? 2GB DDR2 - Working and recognised Ethernet adapter (Marvell? possibly Intel) - Not working Atheros (unknown model) WLAN - Not working Card Readers - Untested USB Devices - Working and recognised Synaptics Trackpad + Keyboard - Working, but no gestures A few notes on the latest developments: Trackpad prefpane installed as described with the new kexts (http://www.osx86.net...&id=1448&page=9) However I have no gesture support at all. Both keyboard and trackpad work, but I would at least like some sort of scrolling function! NOW BOTH KEYBOARD AND TRACKPAD ONLY WORK AFTER THE OCCASIONAL BOOT 'About this Mac' crashes with log out when clicked Although display and graphics are working correctly and I have X3100 recognised with new kexts, there is no brightness control. Is there a third party tool I could use for this? It is also very laggy with animation and stuff. Menu bar lacks transparency. The option checkbox is not there in Preferences > Desktop. It was a very bright white colour almost like in tiger, which i forced to correct with the Terminal line "sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer 'EnvironmentVariables' -dict 'CI_NO_BACKGROUND_IMAGE' 0" and although that got it back to normal, there is still no transparency DONE NO internet connectivity whatsoever. I have tried several Ethernet kexts with no luck, and also several Atheros kexts. Last time I tried some Atheros kexts they were replacements/patches for IO8211 etc, and it caused a kernel panic on boot that I could not fix, so I had to start from square one. Boot screen is in incorrect resolution. I have added 'Graphics mode' strings to the boot.plist files with zero luck or change. Can anyone help me with any of my issues? Any input is greatly appreciated! Also, please excuse the formatting and lack of numbering for my problems, the editor doesnt save it!
  13. Hi, guys! I would like to say you all thanks for your time. I saw how much help you give to people like me. I respect you guys! So, my issue. I have a Sony VAIO VPC-F13S1R that has the NVIDIA 425m video card and FullHD resolution. I have red many topics and tried many options which work with any other laptops, but nothing. Now I am on the 6,2 SMBios. I also tried to use the 3,1. Internal display works with the nv_disable, but has no full hd resolution. But I would like to have that. How can I get it working? Any ideas? Also, if I can't get NVIDIA working, may I use the integrated Intel HD Graphics video card that my VAIO have as well? Will it support FullHD resolution? Seems it doesn't support Full HD resolution, so the only one way to have Full HD is to get the NVIDIA working... I also thought, maybe Clover don't load the patched DSDT.aml... How can I check this? Notebook: Sony VAIO VPC-F13S1R Graphics Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce GT 425m (max amount of memory: 1024MB) Display: LCD 16' FullHD (1920x1080) CPU: Intel Core i5 m560 Chipset: PM55 BIOS: AMI R0180Y9 Boot loader: Clover OS: Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 15G31 DSDT: in the attached archive Clover Configuration: in the attached archive Thanks a lot for your help!

    Sony VAIO VPCEB4C5E!

    Finally I've got my Sony VAIO VPCEB4C5E works good with OS X 10.8 (updated to 10.8.4)! Only ethernet and card reader not work, but I'm working on it. By the way I've putted all my work, with some istructions (see the README!.txt) in a dropbox folder. There's also a txt with all the hardware and related Vid&Pid If is needed, dump your own DSDT, ACPI and other tables with AIDA64. I'll update it every time I'll update something on my Hackintosh. Here's the link: https://www.dropbox....56pq/uQI_SEcd1d (Revision 1.8) WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! Do NOT use SMBIOSEFI.kext on 10.8.3, it cause kernel panic and OS X will not boot! <- Kext removed If you have some trouble or can help me to improve it feel free to reply to this thread. Works: - QE/CI! - WebCamera - Bluetooth - WiFi (by puttin' Vid&Pid in the original Apple kext) - Audio (With Voodoo HDA) [but sometimes sound crappy <- Seems this doesn't happens anymore] - Keyboard - Trackpad (as mouse, for now) - Volume buttons - Wireless switch (not fully tested, but for now seems ok) - Power button - DVD/BD drive (my machine have a BD Writer manufactured by Pioneer, but not tested if can burn discs yet) - About this Mac (Thank you artur-pt (10.8.2)! / Thank you apianti for new Clover (10.8.3)!) - Sleep (seems ok, but hibernation not works, so do not remove the battery or let it fully discharge!) - iCloud, iMessage, AppStore (see the How to!) - HDMI! (But, for now, without audio ) - VGA port, but by plugging in BEFORE boot OS X (You could have glitches on main LVDS if you change some display parameters or resolution) Not works: - Ethernet (by adding Vid&Pid in the original Apple kext OS X recognize it but does not connect) - Card Reader - Bright buttons - DVD Player (crash but VLC or XBMC works good) [Must do other tests] Known Problems: - The accelleration seems working a bit bad, FlashPlayer is lagging and the UI sometimes lag... <- Just reinstalled OS X directly from 10.8.3 and seems work good now. Maybe was an issue during various updates, or maybe a my fault while modifying some kexts related to the VGA. - OS X cannot recognize RAM modules, so "About this Mac" crash. Also "System Information" say there's an error about Memories... Dunno why! ç_ç <- Fixed with latest Clover (r1344), you don't need SMBIOSEFI.kext anymore!
  15. Good Day. I've basically got to the point of pitching in the towel and giving up forever on getting OSX running on my Vaio. I've built a few Hackintoshes in the past, and never had a project with NO success at all. And believe me, I've spent significant time, lots of downloads, multiple USB drives, DVDs... My Vaio has the following specs: i5-2410M CPU Intel HD3000 graphics 4GB RAM Bluray/DVDRW no bluetooth 640 GB SATA HDD Intel 6510 WiFi/WiMax (I have a compatible Ralink USB dongle I was going to use) Unfortunately, the BIOS has only one setting (other than boot order) that can be changed, virtualization...and I've tried with it enabled and disabled. Now I have attempted to install basically every version from 10.6 to 10.9. I used the 10.6 retail DVD with both boot CDs and bootable USBs. Using both USBs and DVDs, I have followed the guides for iAtkos, Niresh, myHack and even tonyMac. I've used stock images as well as modified USB images where I have added or removed kexts depending on the trouble shooting guides. I've built the USB installers using Windows, Linux and Mac. As for boot flags, I've tried various combinations of "-v -f -x cpus=1 acpi=off GraphicsEnabler=No ncpi=0x2000 or 0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes". In every case, I can't even get the installed to finish booting. They all, and I mean all stop around the USBMSC identifier line. Some versions stop at "DMSOS has arrived" or even at the "bluetooth control..." line. When I research these error/faults, they all point to the Graphics not starting. The GraphicsEnabler=No has had no effect, and I've even followed advice which recommends removing the AppleIntelHD*.kext files, and even went so far as to remove all graphics related kexts. In the end, I've never even gotten the installer to load. I've seen reports of other E-series Sony Vaios having OSX installed, so the BIOS limitations shouldn't be an issue. I've also seen many reports of i5-2410m CPU-based laptops with Intel HD3000 graphics having OSX installed. I'm at a loss as to what to do next, or any other method of install, other than buying another laptop with confirmed compatibility. And help would be appreciated.
  16. Hi all, I have a Sony VPC-F24E, a Laptop with i7-CPU and a NVIDIA 540M graphics which runs Yosemite fine (after some tweaking). The only thing I can't get working is Backlight control. I have the slider in the monitor prefs, but it does absolutely nothing. I have installed the ACPIBacklight.kext and patched DSDT both manually and automatically via Clover with the same result: It shows the slider, but don't work. Has anyone any idea? Thanks PS: I don't have an Optimus-Configuration, as the integrated Intel-Card ist completely disabled by Sony and I have never seen it in action, as only the nvidia is activated.
