I updated the guide.
Again it's optional. I don't delete them though, since I don't have any issue.
The guide is not perfect, I'll update it if something is not clear or someone finds something.
I haven't really tested CPU speed steps, HDMI, card reader, VGA.
I was just writing something there since it was really late and will update later (4am or so ).
I was really mad at myself actually because I forgot to save what I wrote.
After I have written everything, I submitted it, and it asked me to login . So everything was gone. I had to rewrite almost everything.
BTW, I gave my little sis the laptop, so I might not be able to help much later on with new update (OS X 10.9?).
I am thinking of getting the Yoga 13 at Lenovo outlet when it's on sale.
That sucks that you had to retype it all. I feel your pain, since that has happened to me more times than I would like to admit.
Thank you again for taking the time to write all of this for us. I reinstalled OS X 10.8.4 on my ASUS VivoBook S200E with BIOS 206 over the past few days and it is now working well so far without any flashing and flickering under Safari like I mentioned in the other thread.
I ran into some trouble getting Windows 8 and OS X to dual boot on my Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD though. It took me a long time to figure out, since I kept having to install Windows 8 again and again to see if it worked. I finally realized that my EFI partition was only around 100MB when Windows 8 created it and OS X requires it to be at least 200MB. I am surprised you didn't run into this when installing on your system, but maybe you have a bigger drive and Windows 8 allocated more space to the EFI partition. I kept getting a message that said something like "MediaKit reports not enough space on device for requested operation" when trying to erase the OS X partition to switch it to "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)".
I searched and searched and finally ran across this page MediaKit reports not enough space on device for requested operation. I couldn't read half of it, but it lead me down the 200MB EFI path. This lead me to the following web pages that helped me create a larger EFI partition first before installing Windows 8 and OS X:
- Dual-booting Windows 8 and Mountain Lion natively using EFI
- [GUIDE] How To Install Clover 2 Dual-Boot Solution on GA-Z77N-WIFI with Fusion Drive
My EFI drive ended up being "disk0s1" instead of "disk0s2" like in your guide. I didn't do the step in the second guide that says to format it FAT32 and name it EFI, so it is called "NO NAME" when I load it via "EFI Tools Clover EN.app" instead of "EFI". I tried renaming it in OS X, but it doesn't seem to let me. Oh well, it is working and I don't see it anyways.
After this and I was actually able to still boot Windows 8 using the Microsoft EFI and OS X using the Clover EFI files, since they both remained on the EFI drive I created before installing the operating systems. I ended up making the C:\EFI folder on the Windows 8 partition and removed the "Microsoft" folder from the EFI partition, since I was seeing both at the Clover boot screen. They would both work, but I figured I would keep it the way you mentioned in the guide and remove the other.
Thanks again for all your help!
