    Hi Ed. Thanks for all the help so far. you'll be interested to hear that it does now see the audio - it calls it 'headphones (black right)' - type - headphone port. But it makes no sound (even with headphones plugged in). When I adjust the volume, there's a very slight click in the headphones...

    Fantastic, let me try that. I've so far tried 13, 22, 30 and 33 with the audio (and the hash removed). No joy, but let's try this config 3.plist. I really appreciate your time invested in helping me. ...hmm. Nothing. All four options tried. Happy to do screen sharing protocols...

    OK will try Ed. However, the # is there as you left it (it's your config.plist file), so I assumed it was needed.

    Hi - sorry, no this didn't work either. So with this XML. If I decide I want to change to try Voodoo, is this right? <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>#Inject</key> <string>13</string> <key>VoodoHDA</key> <true/> </dict>

    OK the kernel panic hits when I the app called "memory diag" brings up a request to rate it in the app store, which follows and icloud login prompt. https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/memory-diag/id748212890?mt=12 so far, the Audio Layout IDs 22, 30 and 33 don't work. The Hackingtool offered layout...

    Thanks - using TextWrangler, which lets you choose CR/LF stuff. Um, so sound isn't working with #22, so let me try 30 and 33 in that slot. Also, why would the machine spontaneously reboot every now and then - especially if I make it actually do anything like open a few apps. Is it perhaps not...

    Hi. So the machine is already booted and working so I don't really want to unscrew it to do this change. Let me try just edit the config.plist. If I change this: ``` <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>AFGLowPowerState</key> <true/> <key>Inject</key>...

    Hi. Apologies I am out of my depth now, here's the screenshot, but I'm not really sure what changes to make. PS - battery is almost flat on my Dell so I will probably have to try anything further tomorrow. Really, really appreciate the help.

    OK as it turns out, it wants either or both the PS2 kexts (apple and/or voodoo) in /Library/Extensions - it seems to ignore new kexts in /CLOVER I just discovered sound isn't working. It's greyed out. No output device found. Sorry to drag this one out. Any ideas?

    Hi. I'll try the above; and yes, I am putting them in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other

    Hi. Thanks again, to answer your question: there's no functionality at all. The kexts are the ones you supplied in CLOVER #7 above. Will try what you suggest and revert. -- ok so it doesn't seem to make a difference. I moved the ps2 kext out of all the places I found it (nothing in /System or...

    OK, you'll be super happy to know that it worked after I gave up on the installer app and just used carbon copy cloner on my normal boot drive. It seems the installer app I have, has some bug which breaks the locationd and one of the other daemons. However. The trackpad doesn't work. Any ideas...

    thanks a million. Will try it tomorrow morning and revert. What time zone are you in Ed?

    10.13, I think. High Sierra. It's what I run on my actual mac system - want 100% compat.
