Packard Bell EasyNote LS13HR - success story

After some hard work, *almost* everything is working as it should now. The only thing I haven't looked at yet is the NEC USB 3.0 port. Maybe when I have time.


System specs:


Manufacturer: Packard Bell (Acer)

CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz

RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333

Mainboard: Packard Bell SJV70_HR (highly unknown)

Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 6650M 1GB

Storage:  Intel 320 Series 120GB (SSD) + 640 GB HDD

Ethernet: Atheros AR8151

WiFi: Atheros 9287

Sound: Realtek ALC269

Trackpad: Synaptics


- running OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4

- Everything listed above works as it should, or at least as far as I tested.

- Power management should be fine (SSDT, MSRDumper reports correct stepping)

- Sleep works

- Cosmetic issue: Ethernet shows "connected" even if no cable is plugged in, with no IP assigned

- HDMI port worked with my TV (HDMI -> HDMI), but not with my PC monitor (HDMI -> DVI). No idea why.

- Internal mic probably doesn't work, haven't tested precisely.

- DSDT+SSDT dumped from Linux, DSDT patches applied: Core i* Sandy Bridge, Audio, GFX

- Takes ~11 seconds to boot :) (BIOS POST not included)


If you have a similar system, just ask if you need instructions or kexts whatever.
