[Guide] Clean 10.12.2 Sierra installation on the Surface Pro 1

46 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Couldn't get the installer to work. I followed all the steps exactly, and managed to boot the Surface (with -v) to a flickering gray screen with a beachball. I've let it sit there for 40 minutes, and it just hangs on that screen. I can't get it to boot with -x, and disabling InjectIntel doesn't stop the flickering. i5 128GB model.

 

Edit: This DSDT.aml is broken and doesn't let the machine boot. The ones present in the El Capitan thread work. Still can't reliably get the white halo to not show, it usually takes a couple of restarts to get a fully working display.

Do you replaced the DSDT.aml file? It's not working for me...the boot is stucking in the white boot screen...

I replaced the DSDT with http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308556-guide-surface-pro-1st-gen-el-capitan-clean-installation/page-5?do=findComment&comment=2232811(the DSDT_no_PWR.aml). Sleep doesn't work for 10.12, it seems to have worked on 10.11.

 

 

Is brightness working?? 10.12.5

Now I finally installed Sierra....everything works. The only problem I have is a white washed screen. I already changed the 0x0a006601 to 0x0a006604, but without any access. Do you guys have an idea?

I had the same issue as well, a white washed screen. I tried the same thing you did plus a myriad of other things. None of them worked at-least right away. Weirdly enough though, when I rebooted it one day it just worked. I'm not sure what I did or how it was fixed - but at-least for me it supposedly fixed itself... Wish I could help more but I can't for the life of me understand what I did.

i use the same kexts from sierra.i have washed screen only in the installation process. 

 

the external dp doesnt work in high sierra...

 

the brightness works from system preferences if you restore 2 kexts and display framework from 10.12.3

Anybody can post some proper DSDT and SSDT files for Surface Pro 2? Had used a problematic tutorial posted by tran huang or similar on this forum.

 

Basically after weeks of effort, most things are functioning...bluetooth is still problematic though and wonder if USB is actually configured right in the ACPI files. Thus the request.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

By the way, used FakePCIID posted by Rehabman to get a lot of things functioning properly. Basically the intelbacklight kext, the graphics kext, the mux kext, in addition to the title kext. That made the USB get handled as 2 and 3 and also made the backlight work and the graphics card acceleration to function with metal and so on. Still would like a control panel to better configure the HD4400 drivers.

Is it possible to make it dual boot? If I look at the signature of @xflier I see he is running Sierra 10.12.3 dual boot.

I am running 10.13.3 now on my SP1 with dual boot and FileVault tuned on. the rough steps are as below:

1. in windows, shrink the partition of windows, and create a new partition about 40 G.

2. follow the instruction of this thread to install Mac OS in the new partition. 

3. In windows, use EasyUEFI to specify a boot device so that Mac OS can be boot from windows with Shift + Restart

4. if want to upgrade to High Sierra, remember to disable APFS by edit minstallconfig.xml

Currently running Mojave beta 2 on my SP1, which runs pretty well except that BT (and WiFi of course) doesn't function.

Using Lilu+AppleALC for audio

Hi ricoc

I'm not using an external display, nor do I have a mini DP cable so I can't test it :(
