Well I followed the instructions for LAN and Audio and neither are working :P I know I got SL running with the built in Ethernet, I just dont remember using the AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext and AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kexts. Not sure what to do now :P



here is a dsdt for the q8300 http://www.megaupload.com/?d=A0S3QK8Z
try this with the legacyhda.kext in s/l/e and install the applehda rollback. make sure to run kext utility afterwards. after you restart hopefully when you go into /systempreferences/audio you will have options to choose from :)
what rev is your board?


EDIT***

Also as far as Lan goes, Do you see the Ethernet option in SystemPreferences/Network? Or is it blank?

Same exact problem. USB hang during boot following the procedures in the link the user stated. Any idea guys? Thanks in advance.


It took me a half day to figure out what was going on with the USB causing the Bios Post to freeze.

Any Chaneleon above v1000 needs to be installed on the EFI partition of the USB and not the root of the USB if you want it to boot.

I have had the same problems trying to boot from a usb! :)
So what I do (since I have multiple internal hard drives) Is format a piece of a hard drive that Lion will not be installed on (Installer will NOT let you install the OS on the same hard drive as the installer is on) boot into chameleon like you normally would but choose the partition that you restored MAC OS X BaseSystem to then install!!

What exactly does it mean AppleHDA rollback? Do you mean the AppleHDA from 10.6.8 exchange it for the one in Lion? Is there any other kext needed to make audio work? I already have an edited DSDT for the device (HDEF).



Voodoo 2.7.3 for Lion released a couple days ago seems to work but volume is too low

The rollback just rolls back the AppleHDA.kext to 10.6.2. I just helped someone else with rev 1.4 get audio so I know that my method works for that rev. :(

Do you have Voodoo PreferencePane still installed in SystemPreferences? If so uninstall that and my method will work.

here is the rollback and my LegacyHDA.kext. Make sure that all other disablers are out of s/l/e and e/e and that voodoo prefpane is uninstalled

My Mobo is Rev 1.4

The Ethernet option was blank, there was only 2 modem type interfaces. I just got lazy and tried this last night http://lnx2mac.blogs...osx-driver.html and wala. LAN is working great now :D.

Thanks Nandor, I am gonna do the dst and Audio info you provided. Thanks Again!!

Hi Nandor690,

Audio is now working :D Thank you again for all of your help, thank you for creating the 3 part youtube videos. (Just so you know, I watched those 3 parts videos about 10 times each :)) no lie) Also for all the information, files and assistance you have provided... it has ann been invaluable to me!

The only thing I have left to do is make my magic mouse work :)) Im not sure thats ever gonna happen but I purchased one not knowing how difficlult it is to get a Bluetooth dongle to work correctly on a Hackintosh. I just ordered this one http://www.amazon.co...duct/B0002K6RK0 if it doesnt work I will just give up.

As a side note I never got 64 bit Lion to work. I think its my video card, I was using an old 7600GT card I had lying around. I was planning on using the GT430 fermi I bought but it was always a blank screen. I dont really need 64 bit, works fine the way it is. Anyways....... I will update here if I get the mouse working.

Good news regarding 10.7.1: Update works without any problems. Rollback of AppleHDA is needed - as always.

Step-by-step instructions are needed due to Iam a complete newbie

Thank you in advance for you help! :)

P.S. Voodoo works but sound is awful, azalia driver worksbut no mic. ;)

since you have a dsdt you should just be able to put LegacyHDA.kext in S/L/E (fix permissions) and use the AppleHDA rollback package.

I just upgraded from 10.7 to 10.7.2. Rollback of AppleHDA is needed.

I had one issue which I am not sure if it was present before the upgrade. The issue is with Safari. If I open a new Safari browser and load a page everything is ok.. Upon minimizing that page, doing some other task and then returning to that existing browser session creates a problem.

After the existing browser session is resumed the web page content is blank. The URL is still listed and any attempt to reload the page results in a spinning colored pin wheel.

I too have just upgraded to 10.7.2. No iCloud. Got error this is a valid Apple ID but not an iCloud ID. but if you use this fix it will work:
A boot loader update
And a Network configuration reset
The boot loader is the new Chameleon Revision 2.1 from Kexts.com with the iCloud and Facetime fix over here: http://www.kexts.com...on_2.1_r1627vs_[icloud__facetime_fix].html

so one you have downloaded that mount the image and run the installer Don’t reboot. Now using the go to keyboard shortcut I mentioned earlier (Command+G) type “/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/”
And delete the following files

com.apple.network.identification.plist
NetworkInterfaces.plist

Now reboot.

Any idea why sound wont work on my system? Rollback and legacy HDA didnt work or am I installing incorrectly. Running rollback from ##### and putting Legacy in Extras.

As per my friend the highly respected Nandor690 did you?

"try this with the legacyhda.kext in s/l/e (fix permission) and install the applehda rollback. make sure to run kext utility afterwards. after you restart hopefully when you go into /systempreferences/audio you will have options to choose from
what rev is your board?"

that worked for me on 2 G41M-ES2L boards. Make sure you check the drop down in audio under LION settings. I think he posted all the files in a previous post

Its rev 1.4 F9 and I had tried several solutions including Nandor690'' so I must not be doing something right.The only time the sound worked was when I had 10.6 to 10.6.7 installed. lost it after 10.6.8 and never had it working since. Am going to retry Nandors and see.
No luck.
After removing Lion HDA and installing rollback and Legacy in S/L/A Intel HD Audio shows up in System info but "no device found in Audio System prefs.
any other suggestions?

I just did it last night. I installed the legacyhda.kext in System/Libraby/Extensions directory, NOT in EXTRAS. Then I ran the Ktext utility to fix file permissions. Finally I ran the applehda rollback and installed it to the CORRECT newly created LION HARD DISK. I know it works on the 1.4 F9 cuz I got one of those. :) Good Luck :(

P.S. If you want the files I used I can send them to you, let me know!

I must not have the correct version of legacyhda.kext because i installed the legacyhda.kext that I have in S/L/E and then ran ##### 3.2 appleHDA rollback. No sound but it shows in System info as intel HD audio. Sound preference pane does not see any device. Since I've had no luck i would absolutely appreciate it if you would send me the files.
Everything else works perfect

Try these files

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LTPNJQA0

1. install the HDAEnabler.kext i supplied in S/L/E
2. run the Kext Utility to fix file permissions (give this plenty of time to complete, if you get an error don't worry it works)
3. run the 10.6.2 AppleHDinstaller.pkg

then reboot.... not sure if you need to but I always do. Please make sure you have a USB jump drive or some other way to boot if something goes wrong.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for all your help.
Just tried your files. still no sound. Shows up in Sys info but not in prefs. I think my choice at this point is to either reinstall lion and then try it on a clean install or to use USB audio. I'm one of those people who dont like to give up. I was not familiar with creating a customdsdt and found one that worked with the exception of sound. I wonder if the dsdt needs to be edited or if its something else.
Just not looking forward to rebuilding from scratch.
