Long time ago I made a guide for installing Leopard on XPS-M1330, since I got real Macs and Mountain Lion on them, I left the forum before Snow Leopard appeared, now I trying to have Snow Leopard on my XPS, everithing works except audio and I am kind of lost. I tried VoodooHDA with no success, I am confused with the
HDEF patch, how do I make the patch or what do I need to install besides VoodooHDA?
Thanks, and excelent effort with the DSDT.
Welcome back Macgirl! I am glad to see that you are still around the hackintosh scene. Your guide was always very helpful and well received by our community, and I'm sure that it is still remembered and appreciated by many, including myself.
The Dell XPS remains quite compatible and stable under the latest versions of the OS X provided the AppleACPIPlatform.kext is regressed to an earlier 10.6 - 1.3.6 version.
As far as the sound goes, the only thing which appears to consistently work on our rigs is the VoodooHDA.kext. I believe that the AppleHDA.kext is no longer patchable or viable on our systems.
The previous versions of the VoodooHDA.kext were indeed viable under the OS X 10.6. The VoodooHDA.kext v2.8.2 does work very well under the OS X 10.7 - 10.8 and possibly 10.6.
Ensure to install it along with the latest VoodooHDA.prefPane v1.2 as well as with the AppleHDADisabler.kext if the original native AppleHDA remains installed.
