Snow Leopard on Sony Vaio VPCW12S1E / PCG-4V1M

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I have installed Snow Leopard on my netbook. I have used a retail installation of 10.6.0 and later updated

to 10.6.3.

 

I am using Chameleon RC5 Pre7 r69 with the following kexts in /Extra/Extensions:

 

- AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext

- ApplePS2Controller.kext

- ApplePS2Keyboard.kext

- ApplePS2Mouse.kext

- Disabler.kext

- FakeSMC.kext

- IOATAFamily.kext

- NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

- OpenHaltRestart.kext

- PlatformUUID.kext

 

For Sound and Battery to work I use the following kexts in /System/Library/Extensions:

 

- AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext

- VoodooHDA.kext

 

- Bluetooth works OOB

 

The rest of the system is completely untouched and 100% legit/unmodified.

I only removed IOATAFamily.kext from /System/Library/Extensions/ because it might give kernel panics.

Note: After the 10.6.3 v1.1 combo update you'll need to remove this kext again!

 

What doesn't work yet:

 

- Intel GMA950 0x27ae8086

- Onboard WiFi AR5B95 Atheros 9285 - 168c 002b

- Onboard Ethernet

 

Since Snow Leopard 10.6.2/3 doesn't support the Atom processor anymore, I use the following kernel:

 

- chocolate_kernel [i use this one but both work great]

- atom_kernel

 

I temporarily use a Sitecom WL-352 300N mini USB adapter for wireless internet.

---

 

To get video working, i've tried so damn many options, that i'm tired of trying.

I use a patched DSDT with PNLF values. HexEdited IntelGMA950 and AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer etc.

 

About This Mac still crashes but i've read that AppleSMBIOSEfi-28air will fix that problem. I'll try this solution later.

More information about my system:

Intel Atom N280 1,66GHz

2GB DDR2 800 Corsair

250GB Harddrive

10,1" 1366x768 display - 0x27ae8086 rev.0003

 

DOWNLOAD ABOVE KEXTS?

Here are the Extra/Extensions kexts for chameleon: http://www.mediafire.com/?zynemjwwxu4

Here are the Sound and Battery kexts for /S/L/E: http://www.mediafire.com/?mdyj5yynkm1

 

If I manage to get it al running, i'll post a nice detailed tutorial about how to install Snow Leopard on this netbook.

For video try these kexts: http://www.mediafire.com/?ulmbgzonbi3 (Place in /Extra/Extensions) Rebuild extensions with kext utility and you will need the chameleon with GMA GraphicsEnabler or efi string for gma 950.

 

Thanks for your reply. I already have tried that solution.

Please see my other link in addition to get graphics to work.
