  1. Dell GX520 sound

    These are a few things you can check 1. Do you have /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext installed? When I type "sudo dmesg" in terminal, there is a line says AppleAC97CodecAD198x: 2-to-4 channel spreading enabled Apparent, it is using that kext. 2. You may try to clear the extension cache using OSX86 Tools and and then boot with "-f" flag to see anything changes.
  2. Dell GX520 sound

    I have a Dell GX620 with the same audio chip. Here is what I did to enable the sound in my computer with iPC 10.5.6 installation. 1 .Make sure you have AppleAC97Audio.kext installed 2. Edit the file /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext/Contents/Info.plist and add or modify the file with a section as follows <key>ICH7 AC97 Audio</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAC97AudioIntelICH</string> <key>ICH Type</key> <integer>7</integer> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAC97AudioIntelICH</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x27DE8086</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>10000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> </dict> 3. Save the file and reboot the computer to see how it goes. Good Luck!
  3. This is a note for how I install iPC OSX86 on my Dell OptiPlex GX620. Hardware Spec: 1. Intel® Pentium® D CPU 3.40GHz 2. NVS290 256M Video Card 3. Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller [8086:27de] 4. Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5751 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express [14e4:1677] 5. PS2 Keyboard & USB mouse Here is the list of options during iPC OSX86 10.5.6 installation * Kernel : 9.5.0 Voodoo * Video driver : NVDarwin 256M * Chipset driver : Intel ICHx SATA drivers LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA * Audio driver : Other Audio Drivers -> AC97 Audio * Fix and Patchers : Seatbelt.kext 10.5.5 * PS/2 Device Support : PS/2 Keyboard Fix After installation, audio & network won't work. The following are the steps I use to fix those problems. 1. How to fix Audio problem : Edit or add to /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext/Contents/Info.plist with the following text <key>ICH7 AC97 Audio</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAC97AudioIntelICH</string> <key>ICH Type</key> <integer>7</integer> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAC97AudioIntelICH</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x27DE8086</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>10000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> </dict> 2.

  4. Dell Dimension 8400 onboard sound

    I had the same issues when I installed kalyway 10.5.1 DVD on my Dell 8400. The sound issue is relatively easy to fix: plug your speaker into the surround sound (black) connector; the line out (green) connector doesn't work. As for the boot issue, you may try to reinstall the os with efi mbr option. That did fix my problem for requiring the DVD to boot. Hope this helps.
