Sony VGN-NS140E Success Story (Minus Wifi)

Just thought I would throw my story out there to help future OSX86'ers with similar hardware configurations. I ended up doing ALOT of searching through many posts to get this thing done so I figured I would share this with everyone.


I spent the last 2 days configuring my Sony VGN-NS140E with iPC OSX86 10.5.6. I found that it had the correct drivers for its Chipset (Intel), Sound (Conexant) and LAN (wired Yukon 88E8039). The Display drivers were a bit of a headache as the Intel GMA X3100 has a few variations but I found working kexts. Also, the Intel Wireless 3945 doesn't have any fully functional drivers as yet.


- iPC OSX86 10.5.6 with Voodoo Kernel, Seatbelt Fix, PS2 driver for keyboard/touchpad, AppleSMBios ToH to fix "System Profiler" Crash, and various other misc patches = http://######.com/ipcosx86/ (Look in the usual places for a copy)


- Marvel Yukon 88E8039 LAN = (On Dvd)


- Conexant Sound = (On Dvd)


- Intel Wireless 3945 = (No truly functional drivers yet)


- Intel GMA X3100 Video = http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=159163 (Follow all intructions to install KEXTs then find and install SwitchResX to force 1280x800)


Ok so other then that everything works great.


Hope that helps some people. ;)
