Asrock A75M-HVS 10.6.8 Audio Issue

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. Been away from Hackintosh for a few years, but I recently got 10.6.8 running nicely on my A75M-HVS AMD FM1 board, once I'd added an HD5670 gfx card. Installation was done via Modbin CD, starting with 10.6.3, then 10.6.7, and finally 10.6.8, which picked up the gfx card beautifully and everything except the audio is working perfectly.


Now - audio was working fine in 10.6.7 but the graphics card wasn't working at all (no video - just garbage), so 10.6.8 was required... however, I lost the sound and can't get it back. I've been fiddling with this for about eight hours to no avail.


The A75M uses the VIA VT1705 HD Audio codec, and while this was working perfectly with AppleHDA.kext under 10.6.7, the same kext in 10.6.8 doesn't even pick up the hardware. The volume icon remains greyed out. I've tried ##### (rollback, Voodoo, ALC8xx) and absolutely nothing works. I find this puzzling since everything was fine before (although I'm aware that 10.6.8 changed AppleHDA.kext - hence the rollback).


To be clear - I don't want the HDMI audio on the gfx card - just the back panel line out.


Real shame if I can't get this going, since the system is otherwise very nice. Catch-22 situation, since the gfx wouldn't work in 10.6.7 and the audio won't work in 10.6.8...


Any help or advice would be GREATLY appreciated. Meanwhile, I'll keep researching... ;)


EDIT: went back to a disk image of 10.6.7 (with gfx card removed), copied the ATI kexts from 10.6.8 into System/Extensions, put the card back, and the machine booted with full graphics support. However, even under 10.6.7 the sound went missing with the graphics card installed. Some kind of conflict?


Anyway: now I've eliminated 10.6.8 itself from blame, I've gone back to 10.6.8 but am still not getting anywhere fast...

      Hi there.
      Soo i was trying install mac at 4 days ago and finnaly today i can. I installed the Leopard and all works fin except the keyboard and ps2 mouse. And then i try a lot to put a .kext with transmac on windows xp cause im dual booting it.When i try to use Transmac i have the error"This drive is read only".
      Who i fix this?! This is my first question!
      The second i think is more hard. I have a Amilo Pro V3505 with 2gb ram and Intel GMA 945, a Intel Pentium T2130 idk the motherboard i aleardy try find the name but i couldnt with a Atheros ar5007eg wirless adapter.
      So i instal iAtkos S3 v2 but when i was booting(after installing) it he boots and starts make the sound of the animation video of snow leopard but THE SCREEN WAS GREY WITHOUT THE APPLE LOGO AND WITHOUT THE MOUSE JUST A GREY SCREEM.
      Well i try much flags but when i try GraphicsEnabler=No while the booting appears i recuve the message "you need to restart the computer" and i restart and gives again the same error.
      I think is some missing kext graphical but i cant add/remove kexts cause transmac give error!
      Thanks in advanced!

      Hello everyone, this is my first post here.
      I have a pretty old laptop that I'd like to get Snow Leopard running on. At first, I tried booting Nawcom's ModUSB with a retail DVD image, but I would always get kernel panic, no matter what I tried (I couldn't even get to the installer).
      So I decided to try a distro, after trying many different things with ModUSB. I decided to use Hazard's 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel/AMD distro. I was shocked when it booted to the installer with no issues! I formatted the HD as Mac OS Extended (Journaled), GPT. I then installed Snow Leopard. After a while, the installation succeeded, and I was happy. It went ahead with the restart necessary for the installation, and... kernel panic. The same kernel panic I got before when trying ModUSB. I was really disappointed. 
      I've tried many things:
      boot flags, such as: acpi=off arch=i386 GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 -f -s -x (and more, including verbose mode of course)
      booting the installer again after successful installation, and then going to System/Library/Extensions on the HD in terminal, then: "chmod 755 *.*" as well as "kextcache -a i386 -m *.*"
      reinstalling with no customize options selected apart from the boot loader (first installation, things such as the legacy kernel and specific kexts were specified)
      and probably some other things that I can't remember right now
      The thing is, if the installer can load with no issues, then Snow Leopard should work fine too, because they're theoretically (don't know for sure) using the same components (kernel, kexts, etc.). If I boot the installer in verbose mode, it gets right past the part where it kernel panics after installation just fine. This makes me think that something is configured differently after it is installed - something that the installer does not have - which is causing the kernel panic and preventing the boot.
      Here are the specs of the laptop I'm trying to install this on:
      Intel Pentium M 753 ULV @ 1.2GHz
      1GB RAM
      855GME Graphics/Chipset
      I know that this probably isn't the most compatible with SL, and I know the chipset/graphics are unsupported. However, I think I will be able to get it to work eventually, I just need some input on what might be going on. Looking at the kernel panic, it points toward AppleACPIPlatform.kext, but I don't know what's exactly wrong with it that is causing the kernel panic.
      Please take a look at the verbose mode image I have attached. I appreciate any and all help I receive!

      Hello. I've never done VirtualBox for hackintosh, and am having trouble getting my VM to run. I been working on it for day, and still can't get it running. I enabled Virtualization tech in my bios, and still nothing. 
      This time, I tired the guide here: http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/02/snow-leopard-virtualbox.html
      I followed every step, and when I get to the Step 4, I always get this error on VBox:
      cdboot: init
      cdboot: file size: 00042300
      cdboot: reading sectors: 00000085
      cdboot: loading.......................
      cdboot: done
      cdboot: init
      cdboot: BIOS disk read error at sector: 00000011
      cdboot: error_
      I'm not sure what to do anymore, because each guide I've done ended up like this.
      Could it be because I put the .vdi on an external harddrive while VBox is on my internal?
      Could it be hardware related?
      I don't have very much room on my main harddrive, but I'll make room if that's the case!
      This is my first time trying this. 
      Also, if it helps,  I'm running Windows 10 with an i7 4710HQ, Nvidia 860m, and 8 gb RAM. It's a Lenovo y50 from 2014.

      I'm trying to get a VM of OSX 10.6 on my PC. I'm running Windows 10 with an i7 4710HQ and Nvidia 860m. I've been trying  this method here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/290949-how-to-install-os-x-10x-snow-leopard-lion-mountain-lion-mavericks-and-yosemite-in-vmware-workstation-1011-or-player-67/
      along with Unlocker 2: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/339-unlocker/
      Now, this is the farthest I've made it trying to do this. I'm able to see an Apple Logo, and then it gives me an error saying that the guest OS is not Mac OSX Server 10.6. So I changed my Vmware to Workstation 11, and tried it with again and it gave the same error each time. I don't have the other OS versions, and I'm not sure whether I'm still doing something wrong, or whether it's a win 10 issue?
      I'm really new to this, and have never done OSX on a VM before. 
      I also forgot to mention, but I bought my own Snow leopards CD, and I'm still trying to figure out that guide.
