Help! I messed up my laptop!

Recommended Posts

Okay so recently I installed Niresh's OS X Mavericks onto my Windows 8 laptop. I was stupid and didn't back up anything, thinking that OS X would install separately from Windows 8. Evidently, that wasn't the case, so now I have a laptop running Mavericks with no Wifi (the internal card isn't compatible with OS X), no Bluetooth (for some reason the laptop won't identify any nearby devices), and it seems like the USB ports don't work (I've plugged in WiFi USB adapters, but they never show up on OS X. I really don't want to spend another hundred dollars replacing what I had before. If this problem occurred because I was careless and didn't back anything up, then is there a way to fix the internet connection issues or Bluetooth issues? The laptop is a Sony Vaio E14P with an Intel i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and a 2 GB dedicated AMD Radeon graphics card. I am still able to access the BIOS but without the USB to boot OS X from, the computer just says "No Operating System Found". I'm pretty sure I screwed myself over. Any help is welcome!


P.S. I am a beginner with all of this and am in no way experienced, as clearly seen.

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
