Hi , i have some experience with OSX (older versions) unfortunately i was using a Mac at the time and never had a reason to dig deeper into the system , i have recently installed iAtkos ML2 on my desktop pc , everything went surprisingly well apart from the onboard sound (ALC889) i have looked for a tutorial on how to activate it but all i've found was way too bloak magic for me , e.g. http://www.insanelym...udio-injection/ i would realy like to keep the system though , of course its bit pointless without the sound, could somebody please explain how to do it in simple steps ?

I would be extremely grateful.

ps. i dont have DSDT.

 

thanks

Seb

This will work:

 

Place AppleHDA.kext and HDAEnabler1.kext in System/Library/Extensions (overwrite old AppleHDA.kext)

 

When done run Kext Utility and reboot. Then it works!

I have alc889 myself, and I got sound with those 2 kexts without changing them. I have attached another AppleHDA.kext... Try this still with HDAEnabler1.kext and remember to run kextutillity, when kexts are placed in the earlier mentioned directory...
