Hello! this time I am gonna share my experience about how did I enable sound in my ‘low budget’ Hackintosh PC.
My onboard audio in my motherboard which is
I’ve never succeeded with Patched AppleHDA method, so I use VoodooHDA
Maybe this will not work for all machine, but you can give it try. Please take note before you do this! proceed this at your own risk! as you know that sometimes VoodooHDA can cause system unstable on some machine.
Important! before installing VoodooHDA it’s better to disable Apple SIP. This can prevent the machine from unwanted error. If you are following my guide of installing Hackintosh and using the config.
You can read post about how to make a vanilla bootable usb drive here How to Make Hackintosh Bootable USB Drive From Windows
Okay! back to the point, below is how to disable Apple SIP if you
Disable Apple SIP
If you are using Clover boot loader, it’s easy to disable Apple SIP, what you have to do is to add
You can download Clover Configurator here: DOWNLOAD
For Enoch/Chameleon user you have to edit the org.plist for CsrActiveConfig. You can use TexEdit??
<key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>3</string> <key>KernelBooter_kexts</key> <string>Yes</string>
Download and Install VoodooHDA
Okay, to do it first you need to find for known VoodooHDA that works with your machine. In this case, you can always ask uncle Google.

Testing and troubleshooting
If you are lucky your audio should work now!
It’s never happened to my Hackintosh but .. just in case, if you cannot boot your
Just boot in Safe Mode and delete VoodooHDA
Or if your Hackintosh is dual boot with Windows, on boot section, log on to windows instead of Mac OS and delete VoodooHDA
I’ve tested it works in macOS Sierra, El Capitan, Yosemite, and Snow Leopard. Doesn’t work in Mavericks, Mountain Lion, and Lion (causing system freeze).
As I have mentioned above! even if you succeed with the sound, VoodooHDA maybe causing system unstable on the different machine.
But on my low rig Hackintosh everything is fine. So if you can deal with the risk go ahead and try it your self.
For conclusion and you to taking note that every Hackintosh thing is only just for “fun” and Educational purpose only, If you really love Mac OS X system you should buy a Real Mac by Apple.
I use “Easy English” for writing this post, so guys! I hope you get the point what I am talking about
BTW! Thanks for stopping by! good luck & regards!
