yeah well that's called a work-around, not fully compatible ..
so is the C300 equipped with the Conexant HDA chip? If so, which vendor/device ID?
It is the conexant HDA chip (thats what its marketed as and thats the drivers HP provide).
vendor/deviceID were extremely weird in hardware info in the sl installer.
Almost every item of any type came up with Intel ICH (the mobo i believe). So i ddnt attempt to patch the hda myself.
I shall check via other means the hardware info cos i think the installer was reading things wrong.
Vendor ID: 14F1
Device ID: 5047
Hardware ID screeny:
btw slices HDA doesnt work on it
