Ran Multibeast for ALC889, now system won't boot

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I had my system up and running with everything except audio. I ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.8.0 and selecte the ALC8xxHDA.kext.

 

I did NOT do a permissions repair. I suspect that is why my system won't boot.

 

How can I recover? I plugged the drive into another system and:

 

1. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] can't be installed onto external drive

2. I removed the ALC8xxHDA.kext from /extra/extensions

3. Tried booting with -x

 

Neither worked.

It gets very close to starting at the end and says login app was launched. Then it has some errors about kCGErrorFailure and cgspackagesgetworkspacetype.

 

Should I take a photo?

Take a photo, it may also be an idea to remove the AppleHDA.kext (or thereabouts) from your E/E folder, then see if it will boot.

Here is a photo. There is a line about 2/3 down mentioning AppleHDADriver error. Then the KcGErrors at the end.

 

I removed ALC8xxHDA.kext from /E/E. Did it get copied to somewhere else I also need to remove? Tried a permissions repair using disk utility on another system, no dice.

You'll need to remove HDAEnabler889.kext from /System/Library/Extensions and any others like that. I'd try removing the AppleHDA also but make sure it is backed up.

 

Let us know if you get any further errors.

I removed those, and it took care of the HDA error but still wouldn't boot.

 

I went ahead and just reinstalled the OS. Only took a few minutes, and I think I have a much better understanding of the process compared to the first time I stumbled through it and had a lot of issues getting it to boot, etc. Feel much better about it now.

 

The only thing I can't get working is the sound. I have a GA-H67M-D2-B3. Ran the AppleHDA Rollback & ALC8xxHDA (without HDAEnablers). Then ran the system maintenance (learned my lesson last time).

 

No devices show up under Output in sys prefs, but it does show Intel High Def Audio in system profiler.

 

Any ideas?

Under the system profiler it should be telling you what ALC 8xx you are running,

 

Intel High Definition Audio:

 

Audio ID: 889

 

Does it say that?

Do you have Legacy889HDA.kext in the E/E? I used my old Kext from 10.6.2 considering that they would allow digital optical out and still does in Lion on 889. My DSDT is patched. AppleHDA.kext is from 10.6.2

 

And is your DSDT patched and are you using the Revoboot or a version of Chameleon?

Rackers: Ah, it says Audio ID: 892. Gigabyte's site says ALC888B.

 

Hangsten: Only have one audio related one, ALC8xxHDA.kext in /E/E. I only have done a Lion install (no SL prior).

 

I am using the DSDT specific to this board and rev from tonymacx86. I don't know if that means it is patched or not. I did not patch it, just placed on the dekstop and installed with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].

 

 

I figured out my uDac2 works OOB so I am using that for now. Onboard would eventually be nice to get working, thanks for the help.
