View Full Version : Sharp MXPEX2 Mac OSX 10.7 driver?

02-08-2012, 12:14 PM
My apologies if this has been asked previously. I have a client with a dozen MX6201's with MXPEX2 (X3eTY2) installed. The Sharp support site only lists 10.6 drivers for this controller, and when asked about 10.7, the Sharp reps at corporate HQ tell us that they're weaning off of EFI controllers, so they don't expect to roll out 10.7 drivers.
This is OK going forward, but what do we do about all of the existing Sharp installs with EFI controllers out there? Is an EFI 10.7 driver forthcoming for the MXPEX2 or do we tell our Mac clients that they're out of luck?
I read here that someone suggested using a Windows PPD to create a workable Mac 10.7 driver? If this is the only solution, is there an extensive "how to" on this?
Thank you!
