Sony Vaio VPCEB390X

Hi All,


I would like to get a working installation of Mac OS X on my Sony Vaio VPCEB390X notebook.

Specs can be seen in my signature.


I have tried many different ways of setting it up without success(full display support, wifi, sound, speedstep, sleep, etc.).


I finally got hold of Ubuntu liveCD and have extracted the DSDT. Please find it attached .aml and decompiled .dsl files compressed into .zip file.


I would appreciate a lot if somebody can help me patch this DSDT to enable full functionality on my notebook.


Here is what I think I should be doing once I get the DSDT patched:

1. Install 10.6.3 from retail DVD. I have used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and nawcom's modCD. If there is any better alternative, please suggest. It should preferably support install to MBR.

2. Install patched DSDT/kext.

3. upgrade to 10.6.8.

4. Fix any issues there might be.

5. Enjoy using Mac OS X on my notebook! :)


Please let me know if I may have missed something and also if you need any further details in this regard.




I realized my signature is not visible if I logged out. So here is the config of my laptop in short:


  • Intel i5-580M
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
  • 4GB DDR3
  • Integrated LAN Marvell Yukon 88E8059
  • Atheros AR9285 WLAN
