OS X on Sony VAIO Fit 15

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

I just received my new laptop yesterday and went right on to install OS X on it.
I started with creating a virtual machine in VMWare, get the ML install app and create an usb-stick using MyHack.
After rebooting, disabling USB3 and VT-x in my bios, i couldn't get into the installer.

First of all i'm using a NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 735M but it says Intel HD in the Darwin booter, i assume this is because of Optimus technology, because of this the installer doesn't boot up on the laptop screen but i have to connect it to an HDMI monitor, for installation this isn't really that hell of a problem as i assume there probably is a fix available for this issue.

So there are 2 scenarios which i've had so far:
Boot with "-v cpus=1" and it loads in verbose, [iOBluetoothHCIController] while a rainbow-spinning-circle appears (trouble)

Boot with "-v" and get through verbose output but hangs in a gray screen with the rainbow-spinning-circle. i waited for like half an hour and it didn't load so i assume there's something wrong in here

In both cases i can move the mouse around but just nothing progresses.

Any thoughts, any possibilities i can try? i'm now going to try Mavericks DP1, as i have an Haswell processor and it sounds logical to me if it will work now.

Specs:
Haswell i5 3337U @ 1.8GHz
8GB DDR3 RAM
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 735M
1TB HDD

First and Third tab of CPU-Z (used to ask for this on the old community i was on, it's pretty dead now though):

Thanks guys.

 

//UPDATE

 

So i made a boot-usb with 10.9 DP1 and myHack,

Pretty much booting with anything doesn't power up to the installation except when i use these boot params (the laptop screen suddenly comes to live as well):
-v -x "Graphics Mode"="1600x900x32" GraphicsEnabler=No

 

Except i can't erase the partition i want to erase for installation (it's NTFS and i can't mount it) so i'll get Parted Magic, format the partition to HFS+ and try mounting it then..

    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
    • Guy's if something happened, this is most likely Admins and Moderators are working there, yes we still need some things to be done, but if it's still not yet, it's because of time or something we don't know, we just have to be patient! Slow things is just because they are working in the same time, patience for that problem is good, and loading things, but apparently now is good, for me these things I've accounted them yesterday and this morning, but now they are gone. For the missing things like the Old insanelymac and theme, please we need them, and excuse my ignorance!
    • Good evening to all. So, I have an external 1TB seagate HD and it always reads normally, but now when I plug it into my HACK it just does not read, it does not even appear on the disk utility. The light always turns blue from the HD without blinking. However I plugged it into windows, on a macbook and it worked normally. I already formatted my hack but it did not work. Thank you in advance for the help and sorry my bad english   my kexts: AppleALC.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelGraphicsFixup.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext VoodooHDA.kext USBInjectAll.kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext   GTX 1080 Windforce core i5 7º generation 8gb Ram H170M Plus BR    
    • WOL packet is reaching the machine from LAN and from WAN (set with port forwarding), tested with "nc -l -u 9".
    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
