  1. If you follow the guide, multi touch does work. Asus g75vw has Intel graphics disabled by the manufacturer so that's moot point. I've never tested spdif out but in theory they should
  2. Finally got around to installing El Capitan on it. Got everything up and running like before. Just took some updated kexts, clover patches, and the usb fix (the FakePCIID_XHCIMux and USB rename dsdt patch). Updated the guide with the new stuff. On another note, I attempted the upgrade process with clover and it surprisingly worked...somewhat. There was some glitchiness with stuff like sound and graphics stuttering so I just washed my hands of it and did the old fashioned clean install which worked like a charm.
  3. I've never used the EDP myself but there are some modifications such as the dummyhda that isn't present in the edp bootpack. I'd follow the manual steps
  4. That's the same problem I ran into with clover which is why I ended up using chameleon. Then my laptop died before I got the chance to figure it out. But there is a device properties box in clover I think under boot or GUI or something like that along with a checkbox under it.
  5. In chameleons boot.plist file in E/E, create a new string called device-properties. Then open the hex file with textedit, then copy the contents of it to the device-properties in the boot.plist
  6. I haven't tried it yet but there's no reason why it shouldn't. Everything should be the same except the added clover steps to disable the new security features present in el capitan
  7. It depends. From what you're describing, your windows 8 install is not UEFI but legacy. Chameleon is the same. Clover on the other hand can boot UEFI or legacy depending on how you install it. So to answer your question, both. Chameleon is the tried and true boot loader and what I would recommend using if you're new to the whole osx86 scene. If you're more of an experienced osx86 user and/or consider yourself to be tech savvy, than I would recommend clover. Clover has far more options and is far more complex than chameleon as a result, but if you learn it, you can get a more vanilla build than with chameleon. My laptop (Gigabyte P35G v2) is completely upgrade proof with clover. I can run OS X updates from the app store (such as 10.10.3 to 10.10.4) just like on a real mac without having to reinstall and kexts or patches because any such mods are run through clover at boot. Getting it to that point took a lot of work, but if paid off. Clover has a lot of documentation to read up on (and some of it is out of date which makes it a little more complicated) but is what I use for all of my builds now. I used chameleon back in my earlier days
  8. No problem Updated guide for 10.10.4 (easiest update ever by the way, I literally just ran the update from the app store and did nothing else: most vanilla hackintosh update I've ever taken) Edit: Updated to 10.10.5, same process as 10.10.4
  9. You can extract them from Windows but the Linux method gets fewer errors in the long run. Learned that lesson the hard way. So yes, linux only
  10. Check out my guide here for an AppleHDA audio solution, backlight control, and TRIM support: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8102-gigabyte-p35w-v2/ My battery patch may work for your laptop too. You just want to use Rehabman's ACPIBattery, rolling back AppleACPIPlatform and such is not good or power management and such. Also, for your dsdt and ssdts, you need to extract them from linux like I did in my guide or you'll get all sorts of weird errors.

Device Renames for OSX 11.11 18) Search for method XWAK and add Return(0) underneath it Important Notes: There is an issue with the sound card in that at first boot and after sleep, sound will not play out of the front speakers or subwoofer. This is remedied by adjusting the volume with the fn keys. The same issue is present in ubuntu but no fix has been presented as of yet. The more people who add themselves to effected will increase the odds of a fix. See bug report here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alsa-driver/+bug/1366241 Due to nvidia optimus not being supported in OS X, the nvidia card had to be disabled. This could be done in the bios but that would be a hassle when switching to windows so instead it was disabled in the dsdt and corresponding ssdts (see Rehabman's guide for details). This is why the nv_disable=1 flag is needed with the clover installer but not with the actual install once everything is done. This specific intel hd graphics is not supported in OS X and so a combination of clover fake id, Rehabman's fakepciid kexts, and some AppleIntelFramebufferAzul patches had to be used to remedy this 5ghz wifi and bluetooth handoff have been enabled with various clover kext patches Sound was enabled with AppleHDA clover patches and the use of DummyHDA For TRIM support, go into terminal and type: sudo trim force enable
  12. Works with the Gigabyte P35w v2 with keyboard on PS2X with _Q28 as brightness down and _Q30 as brightness up
  13. If you have synaptics trackpad, usr voodoops2 instead: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-voodoo-ps2-controller/downloads
  14. Hi Emly, I have the Gigabyte p35w v2 laptop with elan touched. Touchpad works great and keyboard too except one issue: both the down and up screen brightness key acts the same by lowering the screen brightness. In other words, the up key does the down action too. After much troubleshooting here: http://goo.gl/MfR2U1 Rehabman deciphered that the issue was that both ps2 F14 and Acpi signals were being sent by the keyboard and in order to get it to work properly, we had to make a dsdt patch for the two keys: into method label _Q28 replace_content begin // Brightness Down\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2K, 0x0205)\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2K, 0x0285)\n end; into method label _Q30 replace_content begin // Brightness Up\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2K, 0x0206)\n Notify(\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PS2K, 0x0286)\n end; and disable the ps2 action as it was interfering with the Acpi action. The ps2 action that needed to be ignored was 65 and this was able to be done by adding it into the custom keymap of voodoops2keyboard 65=80 (80 is nothing) but I couldn't find that functionality here and this is the only kext that gives me working trackpad. This was all done on OS X 10.10.3 but I don't think the OS X version really matters with this case. If you could implement this into the keyboard driver or implement a way that I could use voodoo keyboard with your touchpad driver that would be great. Thanks!
