I've made a couple desktop, netbook, and fullsize laptop builds. Just wondering if any of the select few on the forum knew anything.

I have a Asus x200CA that came with Windows 8 and has a touchscreen. Shit basically just came out five months ago, and no one has tried putting OS X on it. You can't even find detailed information about the laptop.

So I went ahead and took my chance at it. I have OS X installed, but the Chameleon bootloader doesn't want to work when written to the HDD (more than likely because of the UEFI/BIOS mix) so I have to boot into the install USB and choose to boot to the HDD.

When first installing, the keyboard and mouse on the computer did not work. Finally got a work around for that and is working well.

Wifi card that's in it probably has to go and be replaced with another if I want internal Wifi working. Haven't gotten around to fixing LAN or Bluetooth either.

Got sleep to work half the time with a patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, which works way better than the NullIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext I was using at first to prevent kernal panics because of the stock AppleIntel....kext.

Do not have audio working yet, VooDooHDA.kext or whatever wants to keep the system from booting and stuck at 'DSMOS has arrived', so I've removed it for now.

Not sure if I can get the touchscreen working on it, but that'd be pretty cool if I could.

Webcam not working yet.



It's pretty snappy though, responds quickly when I open an app. I just couldn't find a better use for the laptop. It's fucking small, has to be pulled apart to work on anything inside of it (including the battery), and the trackpad is just like a real Mac. So first thing that popped in my mind when I got it was "looks like a black macbook air".

It'd be cool to see if anyone else is into this shit, it passes the time.

Anything is possible. http://www.hackintosh.com/ http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/11/how-to-set-up-asus-hackintosh.html

@fear bot, since linux is pretty much a rip of mac os you should check in on some of those forums to see if anyone has made workarounds for some of the things you don't have going yet. Is this what you did?? http://www.yumapk.com/Install-Mac-OS-X-10-9-Mavericks-on-Asus-X200CA-HCL1104G.html

Anything is not possible.

Not all hardware works with Apple's software, this is a fact. I have to buy a new wireless card if I ever want Wifi to work. My ethernet will never work. My bluetooth will never work because it's on the same chip as my Wifi. I have to get the correct .kext for my motherboard to fake my USB 3 port as a lightning port or w.e so it doesn't crash my system whenever I plug something in.


That yumapk site is fake. It pulls searched for works such as "Asus x200CA OS X install" from google statistics and makes a fake page inserting "Asus X200CA" where any system name could be. Most OS X86 installs are similar, so one guide could work for any computer. It's just the post install that sucks, if it even boots that is.

If it doesn't boot, then you have a fun time figuring out why it doesn't boot, what .kext doesn't agree with the system. You have to see if you can remove it without something else breaking because of removing it, or if you can find a patched .kext or a replacement .kext.

Here's two pics I took of it, I didn't feel like turning the lights on, so fuck you.

(My computer DOES NOT have an i5, I just fucked up on the SMBIOS.plist when setting up the installer. OOPS)

I've messed with OSX86 before. Since OS X is UNIX based, sometimes drivers that work on *NIX work on OS X. Maybe look into *NIX compatible drivers for that laptop and try to port them.
