Hello Mammoth & everyone,


I finally Figured out with help from "Mirone" what is causing problems with our Sound Kext & all Problems Related to sound are now fixed
Also Now we don't have to Replace the sound Kext in every update and we let Clover do the Patching


Now Speaker works, LineOut works, mic Works, HDMI Works, LineIn, not Tested  and finally there is no sound assertion errors  :thumbsup_anim:


Thanks Yehia Amer, I just implemented this on my DV8 and it seems to be working ok. (I was slowly working on the same idea).

I installed 10.9 Mavericks on my HP DV8 today, removed the Apple kext and dropped in the kext from this thread and it worked fine.  I'll try to get my development environment upgraded, apply RehabMan's patches/fixes, update the source repo and compile an upgrade. Might get it done by Xmas :(

This is an old thread, does it still work on 10.9?

You tell us! The hardware in your machine hasn't changed so as long as Apple hasn't deprecated anything in the API used, you should be able to get it to work from the information in this thread.

I hope to upgrade my development laptop to 10.9 in the near future and when I do, I'll try to make an effort to incorporate the various fixes (RehabMan) and compile a new fresh version.

Thanks @Yehia Amer. I haven't had the time to redo my DV8 in pure UEFI mode yet but I started planning for it and this helps :)  The biggest problem (IMHO) is finding the tools that understand UEFI and GPT so that when (for example) you create the Windows installation USB, it boots in the correct UEFI mode (vs. MBR) but you can also do it yourself if you look at the UEFI standards and ensure that your media is FAT32 only (UEFI requirement) and GPT partitioned (no MBR for sofware to see and *assume*).  At least OSX assumes UEFI on install and you have to hack it if you really want MBR, so that's another benefit of running Clover.


Another problem is the order of installation and partitioning. Although the UEFI standard clearly supports multiple operating systems to exist and boot, the vendors have implemented their installations like the old MBR world, stomping on each other.  Did you notice that installing OSX after Windows will format/delete the FAT32 boot partition?  Make sure to backup the boot partition after each OS install is the rule here.


Now I just have to decide if I should wait for OSX 10.9 official and Windows 8.1 before I invest the time to rebuild...  I will try and record my steps when I do and post here...

I think Clover is developing very fast and it is very good
but still lacks some key features like booting my non EFI windows 7 !
also i don't like themes, i use chameleon with no themes at all
i am sure i will find fixes soon

Clover does indeed boot non-EFI Windows 7. I'm dual booting Windows and OSX in non-EFI/MBR mode. And, as a bonus, if you pick the right options during install you can also install Chameleon as an additional boot loader and Clover can boot-strap it if you hold down a key at boot so you can test under either loader. However, I mainly use Clover now that I've added auto-LAPIC patching to it :)
