In Topic: [Guide] Vanilla Retail 10.6.x with Chameleon v2 for Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L

24 July 2011 - 11:35 AM

Blackosx, thank you for all of your time spent helping everyone, and leave knowing that all of us old school ds3l's are envious of your new rig. :D

Could anyone help me with figuring out what I have done? I upgraded one of my 10.6.7s to 10.6.8 and lost audio.

I am having trouble remembering how I had audio implemented. I have an EP45-DS3L and am just using my rear line out.

I am running Cham 2.5 RC5 r731 on its own partition. I only have 3 extensions in Extras, FakeSMC, IONetworkingFamily, and OrangeIconFIX.

Here is my boot.plist. and then I have a bunch of Binary under device-properties at the end.
I think I implemented audio by editing the DSDT, adding that stuff at the end if boot.plist and modifying AppleHDA. Does that sound right? After updating, I've lost audio, and I am trying to figure out either a new way to enable audio that will work with 10.6.8 & 10.7 or how to edit what I already have in place to get it to work again. Can I just re-edit AppleHDA? since that maybe is the only file that has changed? I don't think I am using any LegacyHDA or any extra Kexts for audio right now. If I use the supplied Kext in this forum now for audio, do I need to undo something in my DSDT and boot plist for that kext to work or do I just drop it in there?

I was having trouble with the audio too, but there is a simple solution. Donwload "kext helper" and the latest support files from blackosx. Then drag the 10.6.8 audio kext into "kext helper", type system password in, and hit apply. This has worked for me in 10.6.6 and 10.7.

nice work nate. would u be able to post your smbios.plist for me? im wondering if maybe i have something off in there, hence why i cant download and install lion.

Here ya go, as requested. I don't think I edited this one much. I did have to add some stuff to my org.chameleon.Boot.plist to get 10.6.8 working, let me know if that would be helpful.. Good luck!

I installed Lion without a hitch, and is working great after patching the audio kext w/ kext helper. I used blackosx guide to install retail 10.6.3, upgraded to 10.6.8 via updates, and then followed this guide to install Lion


I already had an existing osx install, so I didn;t have to mess with #####.

I used the audio kext provided in the support files, same one that worked with 10.6.8. The install went without any hiccups or problems, booted first time and it's great.

Im using an ep35-ds3l, q6600, 8800gt.

Hope this can help someone.

I dunno if I can wait, I may take the plunge and purchase it from the app store, see if it installs on my backup. i wonder if I install it on my backup if I could then re-download it on my real osx partition free of charge, or if its a once and done.

Blackosx, I've followed your guides and my install went very smoothy, running 10.6.8 without a hitch. THANK YOU for your efforts, it allows us n00bs to participate. Love my hackintosh!
