Hello everyone, i have installed niresh 10.8.2 on my esprimo p5720 with these specification: CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8300 2.83 GHz RAM: 2 GB GPU: Intel Q33 Express Chipset family (chipset tipe intel 3100) AUDIO: Realtek alc 262 ETHERNET: broadcom 5754
it works everything except for audio and video card, which kext could i install? Help me!!
I have around €1200 of extra money on the side and thought I'd get a real Apple desktop as soon as it'd happen to me. The thing is my MacBook Pro is doing fine and my Hackintosh too. Plus my hackintosh has the plus sides of having a Blu-ray burner and a decent graphics card. The thing is, it's now 3 years old, and that was the age of my other computers when they "died". Plus, a SATA port fell off the motherboard last week.
I was thinking of getting an i7 Mac mini as well as an OWC Data Doubler and a 256 GB Samsung 840 or Crucial M4 SSD to setup a DIY Fusion Drive (Apple's option here in France only gives you a 128 GB SSD for almost the price of a 512 GB one). The things that appeal me so much are the i7 processor and the USB 3 ports
Am I crazy, just a geek or fanboy? Should I get one or put the money on the side and get a new hack once it dies?
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)
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
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.
