In Topic: [GUIDE] Scripted Retail Mavericks/Mountain Lion Install on Gigabyte Mobos

Hi & greetings from Australia,

Digital Dreamer, you are amazing, thanks for all the work you do on this Project. I got my Hack going in February 2010, and it hasn't missed a beat since, everything has just worked except I have never had the sleep function, which doesn't really worry me, as I am using the computer as a time machine server for my network as well as for pretty well everything else.

Last month I upgraded the O/S to 10.6.8, which was done just off the Apple Software Update system (probably wasn't too smart, but I have never had issues before). The sound stopped working, I have tried reinstalling the ALC885_889a.kext and the HDAEnabler.kext, which I think will fix the problem, but I have ended up with them in the root directory of my system disk. I have tried to copy them across to /System/Library/Extensions using Terminal, however I am getting a message "Sean-Walshs-Mac:system seanwalsh$ cp alc885_889a.kext system/library/extensions
cp: alc885_889a.kext is a directory (not copied)." - I was getting a bit more comfortable with Terminal, and the general working of OS-X last year, but my Hack has been so reliable ( mostly thanks to your excellent work) that I have not had to do any Terminal work for 17 months!!

Am I correct in assuming that I need to locate these kexts in the /S/L/E directory, or is it another problem, if so, can you point me at the right way of doing so.

Next question, I want to install 10.7 shortly after it becomes available on the Apps. Store, I intend putting it on our other Macs first then on the Hack a bit later (when I have some spare time ha ha)
From reading other posts it is not clear whether an upgrade to 10.6.8 is the way to go, or whether it would be better to do a fresh install on my 500MB Drive which I originally used to get Leopard up and running - I boot from Chameleon, and can select either the "System" install or my original install on the 500 MB disk.

Many thanks
