How did you even manage to get OSX running on this laptop? i have the same one, please post any useful info that can help me install it to this laptop like your bios settings.
Try multibeast if you haven't already, the hackintoshing community kinda passed up this laptop due to issues even getting it to boot. maybe this distro has fixed that, who knows. as far as the touchpad goes i know for a fact you're SOL because im primarily a linux user and the trackpad is unsupported in all the distros ive tried (lost track at like 30) it works, but nothing fancy does.


if you cant get it to work just install an excessive amount of kexts, and then if youre still at a loss just reformat the drive and install something linux based like elementary os

Hi there! Im about to re do my install so I'll go ahead and write a little guide as I go along. And I'm triple booting as well with windows 10 and Ubuntu 14. For me, almost everything works on Ubuntu out of the box!! Two finger scrolling, backlight, keyboard backlight, wifi, etc. I'm not sure why you're having problems! I also didn't have trouble getting os x to just boot for some reason.

So I'll probably have the guide up tonight or so and I'll just post it in this thread. Hopefully you and many others will get some use out of it! And hopefully we can get this awesome laptop almost fully working.

I will be buying a new WiFi card that works with os x, though. Do you know the best one that is compatible with yosemite with or without kexts?

    • Hello! Yesterday I successfully installed Yosemite (Yosemite Zone distro) on my laptop (Sony Vaio FIT 15E with an i3-3217U). The only thing that doesn't work is the wifi card (BCM43142). I found in my house another wireless card, AzureWave AW-NB047H. Is this wireless card compatible with macOS?   Sorry for my bad english and thanks in advance. ~IOStream

    • Hello,
      On High Sierra 10.13.1 under VMWare.
      I install Final Cut Pro 10.4 when running got this error:
      This graphics configuration does not support hardware acceleration, which is required to run Final Cut Pro.
      My GPU is: AMD Radeon R7 240 but show on Hachintosh About : Graphics: Display 128 MB. Thank you for help.
    • I got same error 4 years later. On High Sierra. What's the solution? What you suggested doesn't work. Why does this happen? Any ideas?
