    Question Sony Vaio - Wireless and audio not working, help! leo4all

    Hi guys,

    I’ve been trying to install hackintosh on my laptop for the past month and lately I could get it running. The problem is that the wireless and audio are not working.
    Could somebody please help me to get it working fine?
    Thinks I’ve tried until now:
    - I tried to install leopard , but it got stuck just before the end of installation
    - I’ve tried also tiger 10.4, jaz osx (don’t remember the version), leopard (15.5.1), but I had different problems with all of them.
    - I tried the Iatkos v7, but the video did not work, it showed a funny white screen with the apple logo but suddenly the logo disappear and a black screen came out, and white again…. And it kept doing and never stoped. I have tried different configuration but it get stuck while starting.

    - The last version I tried was leo4all
    o Firstly I tried to install everything but the funny screen appeared again, so I installed it without installing video, end tadaaaaa…. It worked. I mean, I can not change screen resolution but I can turn it on and “play” on mac os.
    o The problem was that the wireless and the audio didn’t work at all, so I tried to do the same with them so I reinstalled leo4all without installing video, network and audio, but they still not working for me.
    - I have downloaded a file called SVN latest from after I’d installed it the mac os got stucked and I had to reinstall leo4all all over again.
    Could somebody help me to solve the audio end wireless problem?
    Thanks in advance,
    Oh! I am dual booting Mac os and windows 7, if it is important!

    My laptop is:

    Sony VAIO
    Processor: CORE (TM)2 2GHz 2x
    Memory: 2GB RAM
    Wireless: Intel (R) PRO/Wireless 3945BG Network Connection
    Audio: Sigma Tel High Definition Audio CODEC

    I'm also dual booting win7.

    My audio, Sigma Tel High Definition Audio, works fine with the default selected options using iATKOS v7 on Sony Vaio FZ21E.

    I haven't managed to get wireless working, Intel (R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. The beta driver I tried crashed out during boot.
    You can give it a try if you like

    I just installed iATKOS v7 with customize of

    Voodoo PS2/Trackpad
    Laptop Battery (which I forgot on my last reinstall !)

    I also have to select Remove NVDAResman under the Nvidia drivers in order for my 8400m GT video to work. This is a known and unresolved issue with the 8400m adapters. It wont run QE, but you can change the resolution fine using Graphics Mode boot option. It just runs in VESA mode, but works fine.

    The main problem is that people go mad and select all available options on the first install. I found install with no additional customize options, then boot with -v and see what fails, or if it boots into OSX see what's not working. Then reboot from DVD into installer, untick the main OSX install (the big 6gb one at the top) and just add a single driver at a time, noting what you've added.
