  1. Hello, I have a problem with my sound after waking from sleep. While the outputs show up, the sound doesn't actually come out. In addition, pressing the volume up/down keys is laggy. My chipset is the realtek alc889 and my mobo is: EVGA 121-BL-E756-TR I have a custom patched DSDT in which I have changed my AZAL Device to HDEF and have installed a patched AppleHDA.kext (no HDA Enabler, just AppleHDA.kext). Anyway, looking in my console I have a lot of Sound Assertion Errors. Does anyone have any solutions?
  2. Hello, I have followed the tutorials on this forum and I have successfully insatlled OS X Lion (10.7.5) on my AMD PC. Here is my PC Configuration. MoBo - MSI 785GM-E51 Processor - AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition Graphics - Asus GeForce 560 Ti Direct Cu II Audio - ALC889 Ram - Kingston (4x2) 8 GB Bootloader - Chameleon v2.2 rev 2263 I am running on Bronzovka 10.7.5 Kernel RC 13 I have tried all the possible solutions in this forum but I am unable to get sound output. I even tried using VoodooHDA Loader but it shows Digital Out in the output devices but still not sound output. Please Help... P.S: I am attaching my DSDT file if it is of any help.dsdt.aml.zip
  3. Hey guys, I've encountered a small issue. I have a Realtek ALC889 soundcard but it's not soldered to the motherboard; It comes as a PCI-E card. So the existing ALC889 Kexts install but audio is EXTREMELY weak and outputs alot of static. My mobo is an MSi Big Bang X-Power board and it comes with the soundcard as a PCI-E card. Does anyone else have the same/similar system; either this MSi board or another with their soundcard seperate as a PCI-E card? Any suggestions how to add support for this? I'm currently using a patched DSDT (which eep357 helped edit), so the appropriate settings for the chipset itself are intact 100%....it's now adding the PCI-E layer to it....which is what i'm guessing.....or it's something else....I don't know. Any input is appreciated.

    help for Voodoohda Whistling Sound

  5. Hello everyone. I followed the 10.9 Mavericks Simple Vanilla Hackintosh Install Guide and everything went well except sound. I can't get it to work. Can anyone please help me? I tried using AppleHDA and HDAEnabler but no luck..
  6. Since winter 2015 I've been slowly building my Hackintosh workstation based on Supermicro X9DAi. This mobo has quite good reputation in the community, that's why I have chosen it as my base platform. It quickly turned out the X9DAi Hackintosh setup process is time consuming and has very steep learning curve. Preparation of my rig went into months. Ethernet, USB, USB3, PM, ... step by step I fixed succeeding issues. Days, weeks – you probably know that. It was all worth it however, cause today I have 100% functional muscle hack. Thanks to wonderful community I overcame many obstacles and solved hundred of issues. So now is my turn to put my two cents. ___ Last thing which not worked in my system was audio. Many users reported lack of ability to fix this and after several attempts I also quit. Bought cheapo USB PnP sound card and left the issue unsolved. Having to test some DIY microphone project I did recently, I thought why not to give another shot to my onboard ALC889? I did, and after an hour had working audio onboard. Setup is very simple and you can proceed it in minutes. Of course this is not my developement but compilation of solutions from the web. Tested on OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 only. I don't know whether it works in other system versions. So, here's step by step how-to guide: ___ 1. Download "Realtek ALC888s Solution for Yosemite by Mister Thibard" here: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/4299-realtek-alc888s-solution-for-yosemite/ This is very convenient set of utilities suitable here. Download, mount DMG, read the README. 2. Run the PKG from "A" folder. App installs to S/L/E two kexts: VoodooHDA & AppleHDADisabler, Also Voodoo preference pane and VoodooHdaSettingsLoader.app in the Utilities. 3. Open the "B" folder from DMG and copy VoodooHDA.kext somewhere on your HD. Go to new kext location, do "show package content" and edit containing info.plist file in any plain text editor. VoodooHDA is an open source audio driver for devices compliant with the Intel High Definition Audio specification. It is intended as a replacement for AppleHDA on Mac OS X. 4. Check whether your device ID is indeed 0x1d208086 under the "IOPCIPrimaryMatch" key. <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x1d208086</string> If it's not, refer to the README on DMG (or use DPCIManager utility to get device ID). 5. Find the "AllowMSI" key and change its value to "false". <key>AllowMSI</key> <true/> to: <key>AllowMSI</key> <false/> NOTE: if sound is lost after few seconds of any first play, it means you have missed this step 6. Save the info.plist file and close editor. 7. Using KextWizard, KextUtility or any similar app install edited VoodooHDA in /S/L/E and do usual full service. 8. Make VoodooHdaSettingsLoader load at startup. Go to System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> (select desired user) -> Login Items tab. Click "+" and locate VoodooHdaSettingsLoader.app in the Utilities. Select it and add to your startup items: 9. Restart machine. Enjoy your new sound. This solution is quick, effective and elegant. Checkout the Sound pane in System Preferences – all motherboard audio connectors are present: In the VoodooHDA preference pane you may fine-tune output & input source parameters. Very convenient. Cheers!
  7. Hello and welcome to this tutorial how to install and update Snow Leopard on the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 / UD5 / UD7. This is my first tutorial so please leave a comment if I can improve things or if you have tips. Please note: English is not my primary language so grammar could be wrong sometimes! First a bit of a backstory. I've been trying to install hackintosh on this board now for 2 weeks and I just got everything working. Only the sound is a bit weird (only if you don't move your mouse, but when skype is open nothing is wrong). So I took some pictures to make a guide. Sorry about the picture quality, I don't have the best camera. FOR THE PHOTOS GO TO: http://imageshack.us/g/1/9853896/ Let's get started. You'll need to download the Hazard OS X 10.6.2 (you will find it using google) and burn it to a disk. *If you want to install it on a internal hard disk you may want to set in the bios the hdd to AHCI mode, if you want to install it to an external hdd, then you don't have to do this* 1. Boot from DVD and use the bootflags: -v busratio=20 cpus=1 2. Goto Disk Utility and format the drive you want to install Mac OS X on. 3. Click on continue and agree, then choose youre drive and click continue. 4. Click on customize. 5. Select the following: Kernels: legacy_kernel_10.2.0 AMD_Patch Graphic_drivers: Choose you're videocard (some cards will be supported if you upgrade to 10.6.8 like mine ATI Radeon HD 5770) Audio_Drivers: Nothing, we will use a kext after the installation. Chipset_Drivers_And_Injectors: ATIATA Networking: Select your wireless card (DON'T use the RT73 it will cause errors) for LAN we will have to install it afterwards. SATA_ATA_Fix: Legacy_AHCI_SATA_Fix Patches: About_This_Mac_Fix EvOreboot PS2 (if you have a ps2 keyboard/mouse) Additional: Additional Fonts Rosetta QuickTime 7 X11 6. Click kon Done and Install. Click on Skip if it's checking the DVD. 7. Wait for the install to complete, after that, reboot and boot from the harddisk you've installed Mac OS X on. 8. Use the -v bootflag to see if there are any errors (If you did everything right then that shouldn't be the case) 9. Once you're in the welcome screen and your ps2 keyboard/mouse doesn't work, then just replug the connector behind your computer and it works again. 10. Then choose you're country and keyboard layout. 11. Choose: Do not transfer my information now. 12. Connect to the internet (wireless) or choose: My computer does not connect to the internet. 13. by Registration Information don't fill anything and click on Continue, and click Continue again. 14. Create your account and click on Continue. Choose a profile picture and click on Continue. 15. Click on: Register later. 16. Set up your timezone and click Done. The installation is now complete! Updating to 10.6.8 The update process is simple. Follow these steps: 1. Download the 10.6.8 Combo Update from the Apple site (click) 2. Download the Legacy_Kernel-10.8.0.v2 (click) (this is not from the Nawcom blog becouse it's down at the moment) 3. Install the Combo Update and DON'T RESTART! 4. Now install the Legacy_Kernel. Don't force 64 bit. 5. Now reboot and boot with -v -f. 6. If everything goes well, you should end up with a working Mac OS X 10.6.8! You dont have to boot with -v or -f anymore, only if you have installed/removed a new kext. Installing the sound and LAN The Audio was a bit tricky to get, and it doesn't work without problems. Like when you don't move the mouse crackling can start to begin. But when you have skype open (maybe other programs to) I don't have any problem. LAN was easy to get working. Just follow these steps. LAN: 1. Download RTL81xx OS X Driver (click) 2. Install the driver. 3. Reboot with -v. If there are no errors and you was able to boot back into OS X then LAN should be working! Audio: 1. Go on google and find the VoodooHDA 0.2.1 2. Open and install the package. 3. Reboot with -v. Sound should be working now, frontpanel or backpanel. Congratulations! You now got yourself a working hackintosh!
