    Unhappy Sony Vaio: VPCEB33FM/BJ and OSX 10.6.4?

    Hey all. I am attempting to get OSX 10.6.4 working on my Sony Vaio (VPCEB33FM/BJ) and was able to get iBoot running to install vanilla SL and everything installed fine (10.6.0) I went to install the combo update (10.6.4) and it got near the end and KP'd.

    I restarted and it would not restart into the OS... is there any chance of getting OSX running on this laptop? Specs are in the page below on the "Specs" tab:

    Sony | For Business | VPCEB33FM/BJ

    What for error did you get after the 10.6.4 update? Boot with -v and make a picture of the screen please.

    I installed Windows 7 back on this machine after I reformatted so I no longer have OSX on this laptop. Anyone know anything more about getting this laptop to install OSX properly?

    So I just bought the same model Sony Vaio, and I too am interested and working on this same build. Ill keep in touch here if any comes up.

    Here is my situation, I'm attempting a dual partition setup with a Retail copy of Snow Leopard. So far i have been successful getting the install disc to boot up.
    But when it comes time to select the install partition, I can not do so because it requires the use of a mouse. The touch pad is not responsive and two different usb mouses will not respond either. I feel I am missing a driver for the mouse during the install process. I have tried iBoot and MultiBoot. Any ideas or suggestions, i would love to hear from you. If I am successful, I will post a new thread with all the details (pictures, video and descriptions)

    Update

    Ok My VAIO has officially made it to the installation part of this operation. How did I do it, let me explain.

    First thing you need is a sata hard drive, I purchased a second drive. Easy to install, I want to buy a second caddy for it, but that can wait for now.

    I used iBoot to successfully launch OSX 10.6.3 Retail. Retail only costs 30 so I had to pick one up to try and tinker with. My first initial problem was not being able to use a usb mouse since OSX doesn't recognize my touchpad. I found a solution by using the help command while in iBoot. Type this command before booting the OSX DVD

    -v USBBusFix=Yes

    That was it, when I got to OSX Installation, my USB Mouse was active. Now I am able to use Utilities to Partition my Hard Drive. I'm currently half way through my installation. I will keep you posted on more updates. If this is successful I will make a new thread, maybe a video, who knows. I hope you found this helpful

    Ok I've been running Snow Leopard 10.6.3 for some time now, so its only polite I have an update to follow.

    First of all I am enjoying my Hackintosh for exactly what I need it for: Garageband and Logic
    The sound drivers work upon successful installation, so I was good to go from the get.

    First problem I noticed, Video Issues. The main one being QE. This is required for iMovie and other programs requiring video
    The video driver that is installed doesn't recognize my HDMI, but at least I got a laptop monitor that works.

    Another problem Wireless Internet is a no go. You can go Wired, but this setup is an internet free one.
    I have a Dell 530 Hackintosh, and this one did go online and I was able to update/install add ons with no problems.

    I did do lil research to figure out the QE, but I haven't got to deep into it yet. Maybe ill have something for my next update.

    Got Questions? I check this place every once in awhile so don't expect an immediate response. But as i get deeper and love sharing.

    I have not figured it out yet Ace. Still havent figured out the Video issues either. At this point im looking for a new boot cd. Maybe it will resolve some of those issues.

    I am having a trouble I can't use my touch pad nor my usb mouse even though I typed those command "-v USBBusFix=Yes" before booting the OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD 10.6.3. Please help me, is there any steps where I can use my usb mouse or through keyboard to enter in Utility tab?
