PLEASE REFER TO THE GUIDE.

I WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS IF ALREADY ANSWERED IN THE GUIDE!

BY FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE YOU AGREE TO TAKE THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF LOSING DATA. ALWAYS BACKUP!

 

 

This guide will give you step-by-step instructions on

How to Install OS X 10.11 El Capitan on Sony VAIO SVS13.

 

It will actually work with different VAIO models and with older OS X versions, too. You can refer to other guides, for example

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

 

Sony VAIO S13p (SVS13A2C5E) Specs:

  • Intel Core i7-3520M
  • 12GB SDRAM
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M
  • Samsung 850 Evo 250GB

What's working?

  • Intel HD4000 Graphics with QE/CI Acceleration
  • HDMI
  • Sound (Speakers, Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI, USB)
  • Keyboard, Touchpad
  • USB 2.0/3.0
  • Webcam
  • Optical Drive
  • Ethernet
  • Bluetooth (Intel)
  • Brightness
  • Power button
  • Sleep/Wake
  • UEFI/NVRAM
     
  • *WiFi (Broadcom/Atheros)
    *Airport Extreme 2,4GHz/5GHz
    *802.11ac
    /n/g/b/a
  • *Bluetooth (Broadcom/Atheros)
    *Airdrop

    *Handoff & Hotspot with BT4LE

 

What's partially working?

  • Bluetooth
    Intel BT worked OOB but does not feature Handoff since it's not a BT4LE.
    Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one.

     
  • Webcam
    Since the Exmor sensor built in is not the best, you get a dark image in OS X. Windows uses software/drivers to increase the brightness.

What's not working?

  • Intel WiFi
    Apple doesn't use Intel WiFi.
    Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one.

     
  • Discrete graphics card
    NVIDIA GeForce 640M uses NVIDIA Optimus for dual-configuration which is not supported the same way on OS X.

     
  • VGA
    Apple removed this feature in OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion

     
  • SD-Card/Memory Stick Reader (no drivers for OS X)
  • Speed/Stamina switch
  • Fingerprint sensor (no drivers for OS X)
  • Disc Eject/Assist/Web/VAIO buttons

 

 

You need…

  • ... an empty USB flash drive or an external hard drive (8gb at least)
  • ... a Mac or a virtual machine with OS X (10.6.8 or later)

 

On your Mac/OS X VM

 

Download OS X 10.11 El Capitan from the App Store

Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.09.2

 

Create the OS X Installer

 

You can actually create the OS X installer on the (external) hard drive but to keep things simple from now on I will refer to ‚USB‘.

 

IF YOU HAVE IMPORTANT DATA ON YOUR USB, PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP! THE USB WILL BE FORMATTED AND EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED!

 

You can create the USB with either a MBR or a GPT partition scheme. If you select MBR, you will have to manually create a FAT partition for CLOVER EFI and a separate HFS+J partition for the OS X Installer. With GPT you just need 1 HFS+J partition and Disk Utility creates a hidden EFI partition.

 

Since we will use this USB with a UEFI system, we can use GPT. On legacy system you need a MBR USB.

 

Create Partition(s) on USB

  1. Open Disk Utility under /Applications/Utilities.
  2. Select the USB.
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.26.3
  3. Click on the Partition tab.
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.26.5
  4. Click on Partition Layout > 1 partition.

    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.27.1
     
  5. Click on Options. Select GUID Partition Table. Apply with OK.

    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.27.5
  6. Under Format select Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.28.2
  7. Under Name rename the partition to „install_osx“.
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.29.2
  8. Click on Apply.
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.29.2
  9. Click on Partition.
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.29.3
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.29.4
  10. When it’s finished creating the USB partition(s) close Disk Utility.

 

 

Make OS X Installer on USB*1

 

  1. Open Terminal and type this command, then press Enter:

    sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_osx --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction

    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.33.1
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.35.3
  2. You need a password for this command*2. Type your password and press Enter.
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.46.0
    This process can take several minutes, depending on the USB write speed. Mine took 5 minutes to finish.
     
  3. Close Terminal.
    Screen%20Shot%202015-11-06%20at%202.46.0

 

You now have a OS X installer for real Macs. We need the Clover bootloader to actually boot the OS X Installer on a non-Mac system.

 

*1 The createinstallmedia method is not supported under OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Use alternative methods.
*2 If you don't have a password (blank), you need to set one under System Preferences > User & Groups > Change Password

 

 

Install Clover to USB

 

  1. Download Clover EFI bootloader. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
  2. Open the Clover installer package.
  3. Click on Continue, Continue.

SSHD
As you can see, it's not like the SSD above. It (Seagate SSHD 500GB) uses an HDD and has it own access to the SSD inside. The controller probably has TRIM support. No need for TRIM patch for SSHD.

Modding VoodooPS2Controller

 

 

 

- Keyboard - ISO Layout -

 

  1. Open VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  2. Change <key>Use ISO layout keyboard</key> from <false/> to <true/>

 

- Keyboard - Swipe Left/Right -

 

For Swipe Left/Right the VoodoPS2Controller uses Ctrl + Command + Left/Right. Yes, you can configure the shortcuts in System Prefences to perform swipes as you wish but as a Wacom Tablet user, when I connect it my laptop, the shortcuts used are the standard ones (Ctrl+Left/Right).

The 2nd patch swaps the left and right buttons. They are reversed in VoodooPS2Controller.

  1. Open VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  2. Remove „37 d, „ and „, 37 u“ under <key>ActionSwipeLeft</key> and <key>ActionSwipeRight</key>.
  3. Swap „7c“ with „7b“ under <key>ActionSwipeLeft</key> and <key>ActionSwipeRight</key>.

 

- Trackpad - Drag Exit Delay -

 

I find the Drag Exit Delay too long, so I changed the integer for that to a lower number.

  1. Open VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/Plugins/VoodooTrackpad.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  2. Change <integer>1000000000</integer> under <key>DragExitDelayTime</key> to <integer>400000000</integer> (or a different value - a higher number results in longer drag delay)

dude, this is the best guide I've ever read.


"[sys] OS Check Fix" can you specify which one? Windows 7 , 8 , or Vista? or does it not matter.

 

​If I'm only running OSX, do I still need this patch?


"curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/master/ssdtPRGen.sh"needs to be in code format, the site is shortening the url so copy/past will result in error.

 

also, for manual copying over ssdt/dsdt you missed the dsdt

The OS Check Fix has nothing to do with your Windows installation. It makes the DSDT perform certain actions when recognizing a Windows version. On some systems, the battery node for example is dependent on the Windows version, etc.

 

I have used Windows 7 and on another occasion Windows 8 OS Check Fix. You can try different versions and see what's changing.

So i am now finally able to put the machine to sleep, however, upon wake, i loose audio. I copied CodecCommaner to S/L/E and still not fixing the problem. I left out OS Check Fix in the dsdt patch. do you think that's the problem?

Great Guide :D

Just for correction: sudo touch /var/vm/sleepimage

It's a file not a folder ;)

And for trim: use terminal and type :

sudo trimforce enable

Then leave it for a while it will reboot the system and enable trim without the clover patching.

The command for sleepimage works this way. It's okay for a file, too. Try it. It just doesn't have an extension.

 

To delete a folder you would need to type "sudo rm -r /var/vm/sleepimage".

But sudo touch /var/vm/sleepimage/ may work, too. It creates an empty file instead of a folder. The alternative command looks like this:

 

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage

sudo touch /var/vm/sleepimage

 

And for trim: use terminal and type :

sudo trimforce enable

Then leave it for a while it will reboot the system and enable trim without the clover patching.

 

Yes, I know this method and already used it. It was introduced in OS X 10.10.4. I can't remember if it still works when you multi boot or have an older version of OS X.

So i am now finally able to put the machine to sleep, however, upon wake, i loose audio. I copied CodecCommaner to S/L/E and still not fixing the problem. I left out OS Check Fix in the dsdt patch. do you think that's the problem?

 

Try OS Check Fix. It doesn't harm your DSDT. As for Sleep&Wake, I may have forgotten one step.

 

Did you install both AppleHDA/DummyHDA and CodecCommand to S/L/E?

Try this too, click on the power button as if you gonna put the computer to sleep, usually it takes 20 secs to start the sleep process after that, so just leave the screen black for 10 secs then click on the power button again after that, you should get sound back (make aure the computer doesnt sleep, it's just in the delay time before it starts the sleep process).

Let your Laptop sleep (orange blinking LED indicates Sleep, up to 30 seconds delay).

Wake it and check Audio.

Let your Laptop sleep (orange blinking LED indicates Sleep, up to 30 seconds delay).

Wake it and check Audio.

Actually it shouldn't let it get to the sleep state, just click on Sleep, the screen will turn off, leave it for 10 secs (the computer should be still awake) then wake it again and press the volume buttons (make sure you check "make a bip on volume change" under sound prefpan). This usually happen when it wakes without a connected headphones (sound always works if headphones are plugged in, from experience, it can change on your device) or when you wake it just after sleep state (like just after the orange led turn on) or when it's a really long time (like overnight ~8 hours). if you leave it for like 2 to 4 or bit more, it doesn't usually happen.

Other issues you may encounter: when it wakes, sound is only on speakers, even after attaching headphones, solution: do the same as when you dont have sound. 

For Nvidia (only if you have the option to disable it in the UEFI Setup): IF YOU MADE YOUR DSDT WHEN IT'S ENABLED, REMAKE ANOTHER ONE AFTER DISABLING IT, YOU WILL GET SLEEP ISSUES IF YOU KEEP THE SAME DSDT (instant reboot after wake, or black screen and iGPU not recognized).

That's all :)

@Johnrey, for the GFX0 to iGPU renaming, is it really needed? I tried w/ & w/o and nothing changed (backlight and performances not affected, sleep/wake works fine).

oh!

 

I was wondering if you managed to disable the nvidia discrete card in osx?

 

Thank you!

 

There is a way to disable it in OS X but I actually disabled it in UEFI. I don't see any disadvantages as my system is very cool and has longer battery life than in Windows.

And to be honest, I think my discrete graphics card is broken. I can't use it in Windows anymore..

Renaming GFX0 to iGPU gives better power management. It's more like a real Mac. Do you use ACPIBacklight kext?

Umm... no, ACPIBacklight is optional (read the patch text), and it actually break the "smooth fade" when I get to the lowest level of brightness or get to sleep, yes it gives you a smoother sliding, but breaks that other stuff (LOL pls don't kill me, I just like the effect xD).

Other than that, the SSDT I generate makes my laptop fire hot (really bad PM) so I reverted back to -xcpm and KernelPM which give the same P-Stats as a real MBP9,2/10,1. (I'm still to this time trying to know what's wrong).

Upload your SSDTs so that I look in them, I'll try patch the GPU one. :)

A lil correction:

in Automatic Patching (for DSDT/SSDT)

cp -r /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin Desktop/origin

change it to

cp -r /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin ~/Desktop/origin

You have an Intel i7 3520m, right? The same CPU I have. Try Clover>ACPI>SSDT>Drop OEM.

ok will check it later :) (I'm trying some stuff atm, just playing around :P )


And for iasl command line, it gives me "-dl" unknown option

A lil correction:

in Automatic Patching (for DSDT/SSDT)

cp -r /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin Desktop/origin

change it to

cp -r /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin ~/Desktop/origin

:)

It will work both ways because the Terminal window starts in User's directory (~). But it's better to give absolute paths. Nice.

 

And for iasl command line, it gives me "-dl" unknown option

 

Did you extract your ACPI files? Are they inside /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin?

Did you download iasl & patchmatic?

 

Try to enter the commands in parts.. It gave me some weird errors earlier...

Yes, the command line is wrong, change the -dl to -d

and another thing, why dont you just do "iasl -da -d DSDT.aml SSDT-2.aml" since it's the only tables the patches gonna be applied to (and since I got a problem because of other tables, I donno why, I get AE_ALREADY_EXISTS, but if I specify DSDT.aml & SSDT-2.aml it goes smoothly)

OR Maybe you should remove the other SSDTs first (in the long rm list) OR add to the iasl command line the SSDTs needed. (Just suggesting .. :P)

No, it's not wrong. It's the legacy decompiling. Readme/Help show this:

 

  -dl               Emit legacy ASL code only (no C-style operators)

  -d  <f1 f2 ...>   Disassemble or decode binary ACPI tables to file (*.dsl)

                      (Optional, file type is automatically detected)

 

I tried my commands and they work perfectly. You need to delete all the other ACPI files except for DSDT and SSDT ones.

I've just received my evo 500gb!

 

So.. I'm attempting to install osx again. This time, I'm using your guide to create my installer..

 

Once again, the installer just doesn't start (plain black screen).

 

Here's my clover config that I made following your guide.

 

Also, I'm giving my old clover that made the osx installer to actually boot and install.

 

My laptop : SVS131190S, no ips screen mod, atheros wifi card.

You laptop has 1366x768 resolution. You need IGP=3. Did you try it with this config? Explain "black screen". Do you see the Apple logo and loading bar? It can take a very long time to boot into the Installer.

 

 

It's important to connect to a USB 3 port.

 

Boot in verbose mode and read output.

Well, I selected the osx installer in clover, I saw my usb flashing for a moment while on a plain black screen (no loading, no verbose output). Then, the usb drive stopped blinking and it remained on the black screen with nothing displayed.

 

I used the clover.config you shared in your post for 1366x768.

Indeed.. Maybe you have an older version of iasl.

Try removing it from /usr/bin and download&copy the newest one. iasl.zip

wait isn't there only one, I just downloaded the latest one today :o

LOL I just downloaded this one and still the same thing.

Cloud, please remove the battery for 1 minute and reinsert it and try again, or reset the UEFI Setup and try again, happened to me before, I donno how it worked back. (make sure you dont have SecureBoot enabled and CsmVideoDxe in Drivers64UEFI)

Do you have extra RAM installed? Or just the stock 4GB? I saw an entry in your config file. Remove those lines. Or add correct ones. I couldn't boot either until I added correct info here and tried different OsxAptioFix driver. PLUS USB 3.0!!! No USB 2 port.

 

Also try this: 

Delete OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi

Install OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi

wait isn't there only one, I just downloaded the latest one today :o

That's weird.. You can try the Manual Way. I don't know why it's not available for you.

      I am making a minimal Clover build for the fastest boot possible with the boot6 file in legacy mode.
      While looking at the preboot.log, I noticed that there is a line without explanation (at 0:892). Apparently, whatever it is, the execution time of it is close to 2 seconds, more than 55% of the total logged boot time in the current configuration. This does not change whether I use USB 2 or USB 3 port.
       
      Is there a way to eliminate or speed up the above? Also, is there anything else you can suggest to improve the performance based on the below log file? Which moment in the boot process corresponds to the start time in preboot.log?  
      The last thing I would like to understand is the delay/timeout after the boot6 file has loaded, and the number 6 disappears from the screen. For about 2 seconds or slightly less, I can press any key, and then it will enter the BIOS-like interface from the boot6 file. Without further knowledge, it seems like those 2 seconds are just delay time, and only after that is CLOVERX64.efi actually started, which, I presume, is approximately when the preboot.log timer starts. So, if the aforementioned is correct, can I get rid of this delay as well? Note that I am using the boot1f32 file to chain-load boot6, which does not include the initial 2-second wait period for a keypress.

      I used this command: diskutil info disk0s2 | grep -i "Partition UUID" | rev | cut -d' ' -f 1 | rev

      But I accidentally removed the wrong disk and now my main windows drive is not appearing in the bootloader. I can't figure out how to get it back. I tried resetting my windows drive, but I kept getting an error. I also reset my mac and reinstalled Catalina.

      Im having similar issue with my HS setup, dell latitute 3480, i5-7200U
      Once the hdmi plugged in, the laptop display went blank, only could see the external tv
      But, when i put my laptop to sleep & wake up again, both screen got display (hdmi still connected)
      Even the hdmi could be plugged off & in (after sleep), the laptop display is fine
       
      What could be the culprit?

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?

      Hi, I'm trying to install Mac Os Catalina on a HP 550-132NL.
      The system has:
      i7-6700
      RAM 12 GB
      GT 730
      LAN Realtek RTL8161
      ALC3863
       
      It passes the verbose phase but after the Apple logo goes away, it gets stuck on a grey screen and I can only move the pointer.
      Can I try to boot with the iGPU?
