Here's my setup:


Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L Motherboard

Intel E6500 Dual Core CPU

16GB Kingston DDR2

Nvidia Geforce 210 GPU



I have a retail copy of Lion right from the Apple Store. Is there anything else I might need or that I need to change?

You need VoodooHDA. :) That should take care of it.


I'll do a site search to see what I can find :) Any chance you have a link? lol

Thanks yet again!



I'm VERY impressed how Lion runs on this system. I expected some lag but everything is snappy. Now I need to see how it runs Warcraft , lol.

Here's what I would do: first boot a Linux Live CD, open the Terminal, and type


lspci -nn


Find your sound card's device and vendor ID (should be [vendorID:deviceID] at the end of the sound card listing)


Boot into Mac OS in single-user mode (type -s at the boot prompt) and type:


nano /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooHDA.kext/Contents/Info.plist


Now scroll down to IOPCIClassMatch. Change it to IOPCIPrimaryMatch, and below it replace everything after 0x with 0x[deviceID][vendorID]. Press Control-O and Control-X, type reboot, and see if it works. If it doesn't, boot back into single-user and type:


/sbin/mount -uw
