Toshiba Satellite L300-07R Success

Recommended Posts

I have a Toshiba Satellite L300-07R laptop. I downloaded Niresh Mountain Lion install disc. I made one change to my bios settings. The sata setting must be set to compatibility mode first and then you can boot up to install disc. I let it install with these options. 1. Graphics (Intel Legacy), Network (Auto detect) because i wasn't sure if i had the right driver or not. 3 Sound (Auto detect). Everything else I didn't touch. I let it install and then let it reboot. I gave all the information it wanted and Viola!!! It worked. Once booted I let the installer fix all permissions and so on and then rebooted normally. It booted perfectly. My sound and ethernet card didn't work but everything else did. I then downloaded the all-in-one network pkg for my network and the all-in-one sound pkg for my sound. I got them from this site in the downloads section. Installed them both and rebooted. Worked like a charm. You must have a working wi-fi connection in order to do this though. Everything seems to be working great as I am writing this. Built-in webcam works with FaceTime, Built in card reader works when you insert a memory card in the slot. The only problem that I haven't been able to fix though is the flickering of some pages in safari. My home page is fine but when I go to other sites, some of them are ok like this one but others flicker when they load in. If anyone knows of a fix for this, please send me a message here.

I found the proper kexts for the gma x3100 graphics card found in this laptop. There are 5 kexts in this bundle. You need them all. Once they are loaded, reboot and go to Display Preferences under the about box in the bar. you can change your resolution from there. The maximum resolution for this laptop is 1280x800. The about box correctly identify the card correctly also. I got them off the tonymac website. Use google to search for "Crestline x3100 kexts.

Make sure that they are 64-bit drivers to get the full acceleration. If you have screen flicker on some websites, these drivers corrects them. I've tried many websites so far and all are stable.

    • 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?
