965P-DS4 Success with Retail 10.6 - 64 Bit

134 posts in this topic

I tried a lot of things but didn't get my sound working on 965p DS4 rev.1 (ALC883).

Is there any possibility to get it working on SL 10.6.3 64 bit?


Thanks for your help.

Sorry guys, I have not been able to respond to your messages and PMs. I bought an iMac last November, and kind of drifted away from the "scene". But I am back, having sold the iMac (miss the Hackintosh way too much), and am ready to dive head-in back to the OSX world. I am currently trying out the many developments that have taken place since Nov-December.


Yes, 10.6.3 did break the audio, but a quick restore from 10.6.2, and all is back in order. It's sad that ALC888 has been deprecated by Apple. Oh well. As long as we get 64 bit and the 10.6.2 kext keeps roaring, I won't complain.

Nice to see this thread all about the P965 DS4, has anyone tried the new Chameleon RC5 with the board? It should makes things easier as you need less DSDT tinkering. :(

I need help for Parallel at a optical units not recognized.

I'm new in this business and I've found an old PC that my brother was using about 3 years ago (maybe more)

that owns the exactly same motherboard.

I wanted to ask you how do I install SL with does kexts and etc... - that I need to make the Hackintosh work great with network and etc..

B.t.w : Will Hackintosh work without a Graphics Card Driver?
