[Guide][Deprecated] Installing OS X 10.11.4-10.12.3 on Surface Book

192 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

yes, I did. There's around 1,5GB of Graphics memory, so this shouldn't be the problem. The only problem I have with graphics is the glitching left top corner, although I selected sRGB as the color profile. But this isn't a huge problem, the bigger problem is the performance which is extremely bad right now :D

 

Thank you

Yeah, I have seen the performance problem regarding to the graphics driver. What NVMe drive are you using? Is it the samsung one or the Toshiba one?

 

Thanks

I didn't install any NVMe driver. Do I need this? I didn't install macOS on the internal SSD.

But I will give it a try. Where can I download the NVMe driver?

Yeah, that's why, install on a SD card is defenitily slow :lol:

It is installed on a portable SSD connected over USB 3.0, not a SD Card.

 

EDIT:

 

That's the device it's installed on: https://www.amazon.com/Verbatim-256GB-Storen-External-47623/dp/B008OE0SJW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1488234198&sr=8-1&keywords=verbatim+ssd+256gb

So if you connect the drive to Windows, how much speed can it get?

 

Thanks

Nevermind, I installed it on a second partition on my Surface, it runs smoothly now.

 

How can I fix the problem with the glitching graphics?

 

Thanks.

Can I ask how you got the Intel 520 to work? My surface gives a frame buffer error. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/322025-surface-4-framebuffer-issuse/?do=findComment&comment=2388491

Hi mate

Sorry for the issue that happened.

 

Well, although you can install 10.12 on to SP4, you still need a separte DSDT to do it, every device got different dsdt

 

Patch yourself a own DSDT

Battery

Sound you might can find here

Brightness

 

For graphics, please change platform ID to 0x12345678 first, after installing, apply the kext in this thread regarding to Intel buffer, then restart and set the platform ID to 0x19160000

 

And that all done, give it a try

 

Thanks

Yeah, that's... Dunno why they would use i2c instead of USB or HID, that would be a lot easier for us

When I use the modified driver from your post, the screen boots to black. When I use the vanilla kext, there is a kernel panic like before. How did you modify the original Apple frame buffer kext to get it working in the first place? Any links or instructions would be useful

Hi Nick,

Thanks

I should of been more clear. I successfully installed OS X but the first boot it says waiting for root device.

Hi mate, 

basically, there are 2 possibilities, the first one is the file system is broken, try reinstall, and maybe the NVMe driver is not applied correctly.

 

Which version of OS X/macOS are you installing?

 

Cheers

I got it to work, 10.11 didn't want to work but 10.12 works just fine.

Do you mean sharing your updated refi folder?

Sorry, mate, I think is my fault, if you're installing 10.11, please change all the 10.11.6 in the config file to 10.11.x

Sorry but the trackpad got no solution for now I think. :( Microsoft is using a wacom trackpad, which has no driver available for now (maybe forever)

 

But at least it works lol

Something is always better then nothing. So should I wait to update to 10.12.4? Since i read that the graphics don't work.

      Hi, anyone here got those problems like me ? When I click play, the film load nothing, just show blackscreen like this (attached) or when I download an episode to the computer, it shows error (err = -11800)

      Anyone here knows a fix ? Maybe a bug or problem from Hackintosh ?
