  1. Well something seems to disable it in macOS...
  2. Well, what strikes me is that in the IOReg you posted in the zipped archive of post #1, I cannot see any HDEF device! Are you sure audio is not disabled somehow? Try and add "DSDT.aml" in the DSDT field of the ACPI section/tab of your Clover config. It's not mentioned -and I must say it's probably not required since you use the default name-, yet there are tons of SSDT references that do not even exist in your Clover ACPI/patched folder... In any case, the above _DSM method/patch for your HDEF device should have made it appear in your SysProfiler->PCI cards section, and there is nothing. To me, that audio device is disabled somewhere. Check your BIOS settings to begin with.
  3. Tte above Clover patch appears irrelevant here: the raw DSDT table contains an HDEF device from the onset, no HDAS device... Now, looking at the patched DSDT found in your zipped archive of post #1, you inject layout-id 3: Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer (One) { 0x03 }) } Return (Package (0x10) { "AAPL,slot-name", "Built In", "name", "Audio Controller", "model", Buffer (0x27) { "Apple High Definition Audio Controller" }, "device_type", Buffer (0x11) { "Audio Controller" }, "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "MaximumBootBeepVolume", Buffer (One) { 0x01 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {}, "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-1" } }) } How did you experiment with the various layout ids? Did you modify your patched DSDT each time? Or did you inject the layouts through your Clover config?
  4. You need to identify the specific audio codec of this ALC3263. It should be shown in good old DPCIManager app once you remove AppleALC kexts (ideally also revert to vanilla AppleHDA kext) and install VoodoHDA+AppleHDADisabler kexts. The app should then show an audio device with id vendor id 0x10ec (for Realtek) followed by antoher hexa value for the device id, indicative of the codec. For instance, 10ec:0255 is ALC255, 10ec:0292 is ALC292, etc. Once you've identified your codec, you may then revert to the vanilla AppleHDA kext, install AppleALC kext and experiment with the associated layout ids relevant to your codec. https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/wiki/Supported-codecs Scrounging through the web, it seems that ALC3263 would be based on ALC288 codec but you'd have to confirm. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1413446/comments/13

    Mojave Dell Vostro 3549

    Intel HD5500 graphics will work perfectly once you inject the appropriate Broadwell (BDW) layout-id and apply the necessary DVMT video RAM patch. You can Google for this, there are tons of threads and posts on this matter. Using the correct Broadwell MacBook SMBIOS would also be highly recommended. Use Clover Configurator app to help you tune your Clover configuration. If you have a DW1705 wireless card indeed, please note that it is based on Atheros AR9565 chip which is quite poorly supported under OS X/macOS. In addition, Mojave dropped all support for Atheros cards so I highgly recommend you replace it with a much better card like a Dell DW1510, DW1550 or AzureWave AW-CB160H. You can consult a non-exhaustive inventory of wireless cards here. Ideally, opt for a card that works OOB like the DW1510 or AW-CB160H. If you want to use an Atheros card in Mojave, you have no choice but copy/install the Atheros40 PlugIn kext from an earlier OS X/macOS release like, say, High Sierra 10.13.6. The kext may be obtained by extracting it with Pacifist app from, say, 10.13.6 Combo Update available off Apple's web site. I believe ALC3234 audio bears PCI id 10ec:0255, i.e. it would be ALC255 codec. You may therefore install/inject AppleALC kext and experiment with various layout-ids until your get audio out. https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/wiki/Supported-codecs

    Mojave Dell Vostro 3549

    We won't be able to guess so you'll have to post details of those hardware specs; understand make and model of those hardware components. Eg: Wireless: Intel Advanced-N 6230 or Dell DW1705 Ethernet: Intel i-217LM or Realtek RTL8188 Audio: ALC292 or IDT 92HD93 TrackPad: ALPS v7 or I2C or Synaptics

    Dell E6420 - Install Help.

    Now that you're running a distro, you may want to consider a full vanilla installation that will fully support all your E6420's hardware specs. Please note that the nVidia 4200M of your E6420 is not supported in High Sierra and beyond. So you either stick to Sierra with nVidia support (not necessarily a bad thing in itself) or you disable your nVidia GPU and only use the HD3000 iGPU, knowing that HD3000 has no official support in Mojave (which dropped support for non-Metal GPUs) and gets glitchy over time (especially after repeated Sleep & Wake) since El Capitan on most Hackintoshes. Dr Hurt's VoodooPS2Controller kext carries proper support for the ALPS TouchPad of the E6x20 series and I recommend you use R6 version (compiled by Bronxteck) which is available here. I would also recommend you follow the guides posted by JakeLo here; they contain all files and seetigns you require to install all recent versions of macOS on your E6420.

    Mac and DOS partition together?

    Mac SE as in 30yr old 68000-based compact model? Congratulations! Do you use it much? If you want to develop software for OS X (or macOS as it's been since 2016), get a modern 64bit computer. Contrary to your 1st belief, PC platforms have been capable to install and run OS X (and subsequently macOS) fully natively since 2005/2006. That's what's been called a Hackintosh for the last 12 years or so! You obviously need a hardware platform compatible with OS X (I won't even say macOS) so anything as old or ancient as you tend to imply with an old Intel notebook running 1996 MS-DOS 7.10 (of Win95/Win98 origin) may not meet the minimum requirements, even for an OS X version as old as 2005 Tiger. You undoubtedly know that, for the last 20+years, operating systems have been relying more and more heavily on drivers to support hardware components of the underlying computer platform so if your target OS X version is unable to fully support the computer's hardware (due to lack of drivers), you'll be running in limping mode at best. This may not be a blocking issue when/if all you want to do is software development but such development and associated testing will obviously get quite limited -not to say basic- before long. This being said, if you've managed to install and/or run Tiger so far, I guess you have at least an SSE2-capable Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 computer. Still, you probably would not go much further than Leopard 10.5 on old hardware. That's where most if not all 32bit Pentium M laptops stop for instance. 2011 Mac OS X Lion 10.7 was the last to support 32bit kernel mode and it nevertheless required a 64bit Core2Duo CPU minimum. This being said, I can't see why, in late 2018, anyone would want to start software development for OS X on old hardware running Tiger when OS X has been 64bit only since 2012 and support for 32bit apps will be dropped in next macOS version. I would suggest you get some decent recent computer for your OS X/macOS development purposes and keep your old platform for your 16bit/MS-DOS stuff-only. Personally speaking, I can't think of anything you would "want to bring or steal to/from Mac OSX" out of derelict hardware and obsolete Tiger 10.4. Today, most recent versions of Apple's Mac OS (i.e. macOS) require a SSE4-capable CPU and nothing older than a Core2Duo which is, itself, old technology/generation (current Mojave 10.14 no longer officially supports CPUs without SSE4.2 instructions set such as C2D/C2Q). Mac SE and 16bit/MS-DOS belonged to late 20th century; nothing wrong with the past but, if it's software development you want to do, catching up on 21st century stuff might be a little overdue...
  9. It seems it eluded you that the related OS is in the icon file name. Thereafter, Google will you lead to any info you require.

    USB boots stuck at gigabyte logo

    You do realise that any USB installer has to be fine tuned to the target system and that your AMD system is not supported by a vanilla installation/kernel, right?

    {Guide} DELL INSPIRON N5110

    Did you guys try AppleALC with vanilla AppleHDA kext? It may just require experimenting with layouts... https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/wiki/Supported-codecs

    AMD Radeon HD 5xxx/6xxx series with Mojave

    The minor graphics defects will never change, they result from lack of Metal support on those old and unsupported graphics cards... They're less visible in Dark mode and there are workarounds in Light mode where you partially disable transparency (for Finder bar or Spotlight for instance). You'll find details about this here or here.
  13. Je t'ai indiqué ce qu'il fallait faire en ce qui concerne ta carte Ethernet. Pour le wifi, je t'ai envoyé un message personnel.

    Yup, your got it totally wrong on the wireless card.
