  1. I have sucessfully installed OS X using this topic Click here although I have some minor OS X and Linux experience, I'm having trouble getting the Audio to work. You can see in my signature what machine I've installed it on. In the System Profiler, under Audio (built-it), it shows "no built-in Audio". So I have been searching the Forum for days trying to resolve with previous posts and getting no where. I took a Windows based pc that is an exact match and ran dxdiag and here are the results; The physical driver on the machine is the Intel High Definition Audio Driver, but the actual downloaded driver available from Dell is the Soundmax ADI 198x Integrated HD Audio driver. (not that this makes much of a difference) ------------- Sound Devices ------------- Description: Speakers (High Definition Audio Device) Default Sound Playback: Yes Default Voice Playback: Yes Hardware ID: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_11D4&DEV_194A&SUBSYS_10280420&REV_1004 Manufacturer ID: 1 Product ID: 65535 Type: WDM Driver Name: HdAudio.sys Driver Version: 6.01.7600.16385 (English) Driver Attributes: Final Retail WHQL Logo'd: Yes Date and Size: 7/13/2009 17:51:47, 304128 bytes Other Files: Driver Provider: Microsoft HW Accel Level: Basic Cap Flags: 0xF1F Min/Max Sample Rate: 100, 200000 Static/Strm HW Mix Bufs: 1, 0 Static/Strm HW 3D Bufs: 0, 0 HW Memory: 0 Voice Management: No EAX 2.0 Listen/Src: No, No I3DL2 Listen/Src: No, No Sensaura ZoomFX: No --------------------------------- I was under the impression that the VoodooHDA.kext that I downloaded should have been correctly installed, using Kext Utility that I used during the install/setup process. Well after the searching I did, I figured I needed to change the ID in the Info.plist file. In trying to figure that out, I cant access that .plist file for some reason. I have event tried to reset permissions using the Disk Utility also tried it via terminal. I even tried to chmod and chown the voodooHDA.kext via terminal, no success. So I'm lost there... however if I open the kext file on a Window-based pc, I can see the info.plist contents... not sure if I could modify and then use the kext utility or terminal to re-install the driver. Also, another topic I was reading compared the VoodooHDA and the AppleHDAP driver. Should I use one over the other? So I ask... can someone help me figure out which driver I should be using according the the dxdiag results and can someone assist me with the issue I am having getting that installed. One other thing I should mention, is I have a ATI Radeon HD3450 PCIe card and one of the topics I read stated that the ATI kext were needing to be removed to get the Audio working... don't know if that is relevant or not. I would appreciate any help. I am a newb at this OS X86 thing, but not knew when it comes to the world of IT and system configuration. Thanks,
