 I tried that, too. 

 

On startup, it says: "No device outputs were found. Ensure AudioDxe is loaded."

 

Well...boot log says AudioDxe is loaded...

 

0:152  0:000  Loading AudioDxe-64.efi  status=Success
0:153  0:001   - driver needs connecting

Any idea?

Well...it is present in drivers64UEFI...not sure if it's loaded though.

Any idea?

Try to clear the previous settings. To do this, choose option x, then s and v :) it also makes sense to check if the latest AudioDxe-64.efi or AudioDxe.efi is present in the drivers64UEFI folder.

@arsradu from your log it sure enough that driver were successfully loaded. If you are already start BootChimeCfg from GUI, I have nothing to says more. Not sure AudioDxe (Clover vs Official) version is really matter here _/|\_

Yeah, I am able to configure, test and set the wav sound I put in my selected theme (Minimalism). It respects the file name (sound.wav), the sample rate (44.1KHz) and the bits per sample (16bps). So... I would say the file is ok, the locations are ok (otherwise I think I wouldn't have been able to test and configure boot sound in the first place), still, upon startup, it says the output device is not found, and ensure AudioDxe is loaded... So...not sure what to say. :)) All seems to be working properly. Still, it doesn't. :))

 

And I'm using Clover 4851 (with the built-in AudioDxe) which in this exact commit it says: "update AudioDxe driver to sync with origin". So...I guess there shouldn't be a difference anymore, should it?

 

If you have another version of AudioDxe, I would love to give it a try.

 

Update: nevermind. IT WORKS! :)) It just works AFTER selecting the boot drive, not before, as it probably should, and as Clover's AudioDxe is probably trying to achieve.

 

I guess Clover's AudioDxe is not (yet) compatible with the prebuilt BootChimeCfg.efi? Ooor...there's something missing somewhere.

 

Bottom line, what did I do is: I got Goldfish's sources, compiled everything on my machine, used AudioDxe.efi, BootChimeDxe.efi in /drivers64UEFI and BootChimeCfg.efi and HdaCodecDump.efi in /tools and it works. :)

 

Also, one thing to note is that I had to shut down my computer, and then restart. Simple restart didn't do it for me. Don't know why. Also, there was no error anymore. So I guess they're not compatible yet. So the config file doesn't see the AudioDxe file from Clover. But if it's built with it...it does.

 

There are also other files, such as BootChimeDxe and HdaCodecDump which are missing from the Clover's instructions. They might not be needed. I just took everything as it was from the compiled sources. Just to have all the possible chances of this to work. And, what do you know? It does. :))

 

I'll test a few more things now and let you know if I find anything interesting.

I am using a driver (official Goldfish64 build). The built in clover 4851 doesn't work properly for me. In the driver folder, I have BootChimeDxe.efi, which contains the ta-da sound. When I try to use the built-in (AudioDxe-64.efi) driver, I have no sound, and if I try to configure its parameters from the Clover menu, everything hangs and the previous settings are erased from the nvram. I am attaching the complete package I have just build in the archive. I apologize for my bad english. I'm from Russia.

Thanks, man. :) Yeah, if you read the update on my previous post, you'll see I did the exact same thing. :)) And it does work. As I said, it works in a different way though. Meaning the sound is played back after selecting the boot drive, not before, as I saw in one of the earlier posts, and as I think Clover is trying to achieve with its AudioDxe driver (when loading the theme). But it does work, if you're using all the files from the same source and you have them correctly placed in their locations.

 

By the way, your English is quite good actually. :)) And I'm pretty sure very few people on this forum are actually native speakers. So don't worry about it. :)

The only annoyance for me is that Clover takes 3 extra seconds to start. Hopefully that will be slightly optimized in the future.

Weird with VM, I don't use AudioDxe* BootChime *.efi related on ..\drivers* ..\tools folder, neither any *.wav file for theme.. but still, it took some secs loading the GUI. What do you think?

@arsradu @MakAsus The sound on after selecting boot device must be come from BootChimeDxe. While on before Clover GUI / theme changes / within GUI are from Clover internal player. Agreed, AudioDxe will took sometimes to load, you may check it with BUILD_TARGETS=DEBUG while compiling.

You are correct. That's indeed the source of the sound, just like MakAsus mentioned above. Removing that will also remove the sound after selecting the boot drive. :) I'm sure things will improve over time. And whatever is causing it not to work right now, I'm sure will be fixed. 

 

To be honest, I never thought I'd see the day a hackintosh will play that legendary Mac chime. :)) This is amazing, in my opinion. And I'd like to congratulate everyone involved in this little project for their amazing work.

Thanks. I already did that. And it does work, indeed. But I was talking about Clover's attempt on this, with the sound included in the theme folder. That one doesn't work yet, at least for me.

@Slice when you have a bit of time, here's the updated ro.po file for Romanian translation. I took a look at the current one from SourceForge, and there were some strings that were not translated at all (newer ones, especially driver descriptions, themes descriptions, including the new SVG ones). Now they should be all translated. Also, corrected/updated some of the existing ones, as well. Poedit was also showing some warnings, due to slight differences between the original text and the translated one. So those should be gone now.

 

Let's just say I kept myself busy for the past few hours. And this version should fix a lot of those issue (if not all). :)

 

So, if you want, here's the RO translation for adding/merging into the source.

 

I also built Clover locally using this ro.po file, and I had no issues whatsoever. So I don't think you will encounter any issues either. But if you do, please, let me know.

 

Cheers!

Thanks! You are right that "Clover tries to do this with the AudioDxe driver (when loading a theme)." This worked in revisions up to 4850 (revision 4850 caused in my case a frequent panic). Edition 4850 caused a frequent panic, and in revision 4851, the sound with the built-in AudioDxe stopped working, even if all the files are from the same source, even if they are located in their places. :( it just hangs if I press the F7 key, or it doesn’t play back anything either before loading the theme or when the progress bar appears. Although the outputs and level are selected correctly.

Yep, I think I also mentioned in my previous posts that F7 freezes the UI in 4851. Looks like I'm not the only one. I'll try some of the older builds, before 4851 but after the official 4844. See how they perform...

 

Update: Well, what do you know? Version 4848 works perfectly fine, with the same files in the same places. Well, the AudioDxe driver was actually the one built into version 4848, so most likely different from the one in version 4851. But yeah, it works. :D 

 

The UI in Options -> Startup Sound still needs some tweaking. But I was able to configure everything from Shell.

For me, version 4848 works fine with files from version 4851. Most of the changes were in the StartupSound.c file. Unfortunately, I am not a good programmer. I would fix the problem, but I do not know how!

odd - i'm on 4852 

i put sound.wav from Clovy in the ThinkPad folder...

but says File not found using embedded sound -  which sounds really lowFI - more like a guitar strum than mac chime?

wonder why it doesn't find the sound.wav file?

 

update: added 2nd sound file and it sounds normal vs embedded 

ah it needed sound_night.wav too. for some reason clover thinks its nighttime ?!

I see...i haven't tried to use 4848 with files from 4851. I assumed the issue was with the AudioDxe driver itself , so I replaced that upon installation of 4848.

Also I'm not a programmer. So can't really help with that either.

Not sure...but sound file should be 44100 Hz (44.1 KHz). At least these are the instructions provided here.

 

You can try the attached one, if you want.

sound.wav

 

EDIT: nevermind. Now I saw the 8 Khz embedded sound from commit 4852. My bad. :) You can still try the attached file, if you want.

I installed 4852 as well, and I've got two issues:

 

1. the sound is really weird. Just like you said.

2. F7 while it doesn't freeze the UI anymore, it also doesn't seem to play back the sound... Not sure what's going on with that.

 

Did you manage to make it play the actual file you set up in the theme folder? Cause I don't think the embedded one has anything to do with that.

4852: there is a logic issue in Clover/rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/Settings.c 

 

problems is it wont try to open sound.wav if !Daylight is false (i.e DayLight is true)

(DayLight is true when timezone corrected time is between 8:00 and 20:00)

 

the other logic issue was it would alway play embedded sound instead of sound.wav since it would never come back with failed status.

 

also NowHour needs to adjusted if < 0

i.e if NowHour < 0 ; then NowHour = NowHour +24

 

 

original:

    if (!DayLight) {

      Status = StartupSoundPlay(ThemeDir, L"sound_night.wav", OldChosenAudio);

    }

    if (EFI_ERROR(Status)) {

      Status = StartupSoundPlay(ThemeDir, L"sound.wav", OldChosenAudio);

    }

 

NEW

 

  if (!ThemeDict) {  // No theme could be loaded, use embedded

    DBG (" using embedded theme\n");

...

      Status = StartupSoundPlay(ThemeDir, L"embedded", OldChosenAudio);

  } else { // theme loaded successfully

...

    if (!DayLight) {

      Status = StartupSoundPlay(ThemeDir, L"sound_night.wav", OldChosenAudio);

      if (EFI_ERROR(Status)) { Status = StartupSoundPlay(ThemeDir, L"sound.wav", OldChosenAudio); }

    else {

      Status = StartupSoundPlay(ThemeDir, L"sound.wav", OldChosenAudio);

    }

 

  }

 

fixed using this logic:

if there is a real theme with 1 or 2 sound files (sound.wav and sound_night.wav)

 

check for nightime 

       and try to use sound_night.wav

if no sound_night.wav

    use sound.wav

 

 

i chose to use embedded sound ONLY when using embedded theme rather than fall back. but this is just an opinion.

@arsradu

Accepted

 

@tluck

I accepted your code with some deviations.

1. About letter case Daytime or DayTime. config-sample uses lowcase but it doesn't matter Clover checks case-independent AsciiStriCmp().

2. About name embedded. I uses NULL as many other settings for embedded theme. Why not?

 

@all

There is still an issue with PlayAsync=YES. Clover hangs after play. Use NO until the issue will be resolved.

In version 4852 when I press F7 to any output, no longer hangs, but there is no sound, and most importantly, the sound does not appear at the start. If you configure the output and volume by BootChimeCfg.efi, then the sound appear at the start fine. :) I using the built-in version 4852 drivers now.

log fragment:

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu

      I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
      "could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating" 
      And some other warnings afterwards.
      Specs:
      CPU: Intel Skylake 6700HQ 2.6GHz
      RAM: 16GB DDR4
      2TB HDD + 128GB SSD
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 + Nvidia GTX960m
      I'm installing using a 16GB USB3 flash drive on one of HDD volumes (UEFI Mode)
       
      I uploaded the verbose log and clover config.plist
      config-new.plist

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.
      Appreciate ! Acer 5750 Official Page
