[GUIDE] Install Mavericks/Yosemite on Sony VAIO S (2012) -and other UEFI capable VAIOs-

Hmmm, weird, are you booting from USB3.0 ? (use 2.0)

I'm available in chat section if you need help for now

 

It was boot from an USB 2 port.

 

Actually I did not some tweaks in following the procedure. I first followed the steps in making the USB sticks as a 2 partition MBR but it won't boot. It seems that that the ASSIST key on my Sony  VPCSE does not work. I flashed the BIOS to get advanced menu. It does not have Boot Mode option, instead, it has a "UEFI Boot" option, which I enabled. But still could not make the USB stick to boot. I am not sure wether enabling UEFI BOOT means that the machine will be booted into UEFI mode. It seems not.

 

I googled and found another way to prepare the Clover USB (http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks-desktop-guides/125632-how-install-os-x-mavericks-using-clover.html). This way I could only have the Legacy option to be bootable. I then copied all the Kexts in your Clover.zip to the /EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other, but then run into the "Still Waiting for Root Device" there

 

It seems the major problem is that I cannot boot the USB prepared following your instruction. Probably it is because Vaio VPCSE is not booted in UEFI mode.

Well that's something different, dude, i got a non UEFI PC guide, not easy tho, but works, I would like to post it here, but Im not sure if it will work, but if you want I'll make in these comming days.

AND, looks like you went to tonymacx86 site and used their guides, and Im sorry to inform you that the rules here forbid the usage of any tool from there (and any guide that includes it) so please, if you think that they will help you more ask there, but we wont help you, OR ask here, and dont use their tools, and we will help you with anything you need, hope I was clear and good luck :D

And btw, if you comapre the folder arrangement I have in clover.zip, it's really different than their's, cuz I made mine and I kept onlt the important files and folders.

Midi Thanks for all the work, almost everything works perfect (dual OS X and Windows). The only thing I couldn't do is run the screen brightness, because does not change: /. But it's one thing I do not care much. haha.
 

 

Again , thank you.

No problem :D for the brightness just apply Brighness HD4000 on DSDT and install ACPIBacklight, i don't know your specific key combinaison for that, but you can change the brightness in Preferences > Display ;)

Why do you have to rename bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfwA.efi

Sony's UEFI firmware have locked boot order:

1) bootmgfw.efi

2) bootx64.efi

3) grubx64.efi or whatever is put third with efibootmgr (a binary in linux that controls boot orders)

So, I renamed it to bootmgfwA.efi (you can rename it whatever you want, just remember to remember what you renamed it) and added it to Clover's config, same thing applies to grubx64.efi, sometimes the firmware skips the bootx64.efi (because it's the third option now because linux install changed the order) and boots grubx64.efi, so renaming it and doing the same steps as bootmgfw.efi will force the firmware to boot clover.

But! If you Upgrade Windows to another version OR used the Repair Boot Utility, you'll need to rename the file again, and dont just remove bootmgfw.efi you'll find (cuz you'll find bootmgfwA.efi there, windows wont remove it) remove the bootmgfwA.efi then rename the other, same appies to grub2, if you update grup, this may happen also.

Hey great work dude but m not getiing QE/CI plz help !

i Have intel HD 4000 and Radeon HD 7650m :)

Step 4) : Have you chosen your card? (AMD will not work, better disable it :) ) and follow Allan's link if this doesn't work, in HVT you'll find two patches for HD4000 (forget about the one with Series 6), choose the one that suites your screen resolution :)

Then it's the same as other Sony Vaio I guess. Other laptops such as Dell, Asus, Lenovo, HP and Acer works, but not Sony Vaio

      Hi everyone!
       
      I have a Sony Vaio Fit15E running macOS 10.12.5 with almost everything working. The only problem is that, when it wakes up from sleep (hibernatemode 3), the screen's backlight doesn't light up. In order to make it work, I have to close and open the lid one more time. After that, the backlight lights up just fine.
       
      The backlight worked fine until Yosemite, if i recall. I've tried a zillion methods, including some old GMA950 topics about that issue and also messed with all those darkwake options.
       
      I've attached my DSDT. It has the following patches: GFX0 -> IGPU, HDA Layout ID 3, Remapping Q8E and Q8F keys (for brightness keys) and Sony Vaio SVE Battery Patch.
       
      For brightness, I'm using the new method with separate SSDT_PNLF.aml. Brightness slider works fine.
       
      Also, I have the follwing kexts at Clover's other kext folder: ACPIBatteryManager.kext, CodecCommander.kext (HDA sound after sleep), FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext, FakePCIID.kext, USBInjectAll.kext (without these three, I can't get my built-in webcam and RT2870 usb wifi to work), FakeSMC.kext, RealtekRTL8111.kext and VoodooPS2Controller.kext.
       
      On System/Library/Extensions, I have: AppleHDA.kext (patched with HDA-Patcher) and RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext.
       
      As boot flags, I have: npci=0x2000, dart=0 and slide=100 (with this flag, hibernatemode 25 'full hibernate' works).
       
      I'm really creating this topic because I don't know what else I can do. I have years of hackintosh (since Tiger, not on this same hardware, lol), but I can't find a solution for this particular issue.
       
      Thanks you all.

      Hi, guys!
      I would like to say you all thanks for your time. I saw how much help you give to people like me. I respect you guys!
       
      So, my issue. I have a Sony VAIO VPC-F13S1R that has the NVIDIA 425m video card and FullHD resolution. I have red many topics and tried many options which work with any other laptops, but nothing. Now I am on the 6,2 SMBios. I also tried to use the 3,1. Internal display works with the nv_disable, but has no full hd resolution. But I would like to have that.
       
      How can I get it working? Any ideas? Also, if I can't get NVIDIA working, may I use the integrated Intel HD Graphics video card that my VAIO have as well? Will it support FullHD resolution?  Seems it doesn't support Full HD resolution, so the only one way to have Full HD is to get the NVIDIA working...
      I also thought, maybe Clover don't load the patched DSDT.aml... How can I check this?
       
      Notebook: Sony VAIO VPC-F13S1R
      Graphics Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce GT 425m (max amount of memory: 1024MB)
      Display: LCD 16' FullHD (1920x1080)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 m560
      Chipset: PM55
      BIOS: AMI R0180Y9
      Boot loader: Clover
      OS: Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 15G31
      DSDT: in the attached archive
      Clover Configuration: in the attached archive
       
      Thanks a lot for your help!

      Sorry guys, there have been some things missing, or had been in wrong order.
      Because of the extrem long guide, I removed the content temporarily. Will be fixed soon.

      Hi,
       
      I'm on OSX since 10.5 and 4 laptops to date, but this one is a pain.
      I have a sloppy, but working Clover based 10.11.1 on HDD, but since I just bought a SSD drive, I decided to start from scratch, looking for latest solutions.
      I found an excellent guide for similar device, but audio does not work.
       
      I do have a semi working patched AppleHDA, v2.5.3 by Mirone (attached), found somewhere years ago, but in the past I had some issues after wake (seems ok now) and audio through HDMI does not work.
       
      Thing is that apparently my ALC269VC is somehow a very rare thing manufactured by Sony, I can't really find any proper solution.
       
      I thought that someone could help me doing this properly once for all, using DummyHDA to persist stuff between updates.
       
      Device info:
      CodecCommander: ....CodecVendor Id: 0x10ec0269CodecCommander: ....Codec Address: 0 CodecCommander: ....Subsystem Id: 0x104d6900 CodecCommander: ....PCI Sub Id: 0x104d90ab Vendor Id: 10ec:0269 Subsystem Id: 104d:6900 Revision Id: 100202 I do believe that this ALSA report here has the same HDA codec information as my device (ctrl+f Realtek ALC269VC).   Any support would be greatly appreciated, with beer donations.   Cheers!
