Tried already and no, rather, sleeping and waking is like booting the OS for power management purposes, so if I do that the devices get recognized. I can also boot with the device plugged in and turned on and it will be recognized. I guess I'll just have to fiddle around some more with the notifications, I'm bound to get it right eventually.

 

In practice I'll never ever use the analog surround but it'd be cool to have it. If you google, there's a tutorial on how to do it without aggregating because apparently some macs did include a setting for native 5.1 (no 7.1 though, I think). That guide in particular is for ALC889 but the principle should hold, I guess.

My receiver does all the decoding, and the few movies I have with 5.1 dolby digital or DTS, sound AMAZING. I just don't see the need for surround on anything except the best films (watching Inception on my system, cranked up, makes the world shudder).

 

I never bothered with HDMI output from NVIDIA graphics cards, but there are some guides/tools out there for this. It usually means patching your kexts tho.

 

My HackBook Pro (Acer Apire 4752) has HDMI + HDMI-AUDIO-OUT, which is cool.

 

Best of luck, let me know how things go. I have a working AppleHDA kext for Mavericks, but it doesn't work over sleep. I'm sure there are some commands to reload the audio service, but seeing I never put my Hackintosh to sleep, it's always working :-)

I've got working hdmi audio on my ati card; took me a long while of editing the framebuffer and patching the kext (now do it on the fly with clover though) but it involved much trial and error.

That is awesome. You need to give me a foolproof method of installing Clover. The last 2 times I installed it borked my Hackintosh... :-(

 

I was starting to think that Clover did not work on the P67A-GD55(B3) mobo... ??

 

I have Chameleon 3.01 installed (I think) at the moment. Using GUID formatted separate HDD.

 

Help me Obi-Wan, you're my only hope!

 

(Also, your config.plist from Clover would be much appreciated).

 

Cheers.

Well, it's much slower but the way to do it is installing to a pendrive and booting from it. At first at least, you only actually install it to the HD once you're certain it's relatively working.

I'm using a dsdt though, I guess eventually I could give you that though but there's not much point unless you boot UEFI.

Not currently at the computer but will walk you around my settings later.

Thanks Lord Kamina. My bios is full UEFI, I am using Win 7 that DOES NOT have the 100MB EFI partition (the Mac has 200MB, but that has been freshly formatted to FAT32). I assume this means that my Win 7 install is non-UEFI, and will possibly not boot if I try Clover?

 

I'll give the Rufus USB stick a go, full UEFI, and see if it works from USB boot. New soon. Cheers.


PLEASE NOTE: Misleading subject title. Mac is not 100% -> Sleep/Wake issue with black screen still remains. Usually after sleeping more than 1hr. I have tried different darkwake=x values, but nothing seems to work. I am connected via DVI now, but was connected via HDMI before. Don't know if it makes a difference. I am resigned to only having a 99.9% Hackintosh now, although all software previously mentioned as non-working, is now fine (except Gish, which is so old, and not updated, that it fails to work on Lion/ML as well). I will create a WineSkin wrapper for PC Gish, see if I can get it working that way.

I tried Clover, and eventually got a working dual-boot with 10.9.5 and Win7 64bit UEFI. I messed with something, and ruined BOTH installs, had to fresh install Win7 AND OSX. Only just got around to reinstalling 10.9.5, and apart from Sleep/Wake issue, all is going well. Only difference is I am now loading NVIDIA ROM, and using VBIOS in Boot.plist. This gives me less erratic graphics power management. Still using Chimera 3.0.1 to dual-boot non-UEFI Mac/Win7-64. Only one software title out of hundreds has failed so far. CaveStory+ from Humble Indie Bundle! It fails on ALL my Hackintoshes tho. Works on my Intel Iris Pro iMac? Need to play around with SDL frameworks inside...?!

 

Anyways, I'm installing all my emulators tonight. Should be fun.

 

More news as it happens. I have a 100% working Mavericks install on a Gigabyte EP45-DS3L (see my other post). Also have two ASUS P5KPL mobos (a CM and a VM) to try out. I have DSDT patches for both, so might be OK.

Cave Story+ crashes on real Macs too. Workaround available on the forums/interwebs.

 

Tested and working. (create copy of cave_story.app in root directory of Mac drive (can be hidden)).

 

Boot regular /Applications/Cave_story.app --> all wonderful again.

Themacmeister: Can you sumarize your install method?. I have read your posts about Yosemite and now Im in boubt if isn't better to install Maverics instead. I managed to install Yosmite but I have problems with the graphics card and the web drivers and can't get a guide to use M*st. Thanks!
