1: This is the audio card You have:

(Realtek® ALC892 codec

High Definition Audio

2/4/5.1/7.1-channel

* To configure 7.1-channel audio, you have to use an HD front panel audio module and enable the multi-channel audio feature through the audio driver.

Support for S/PDIF Out)

2: about the graphic card:

You bought a Gtx 660 videocard and You want full Graphics Right?

Check in the download area of this web site for the drivers of that Videocard.if you dont find them i can Look for them for You.

And the way to install drivers or Kexts as we call in the Hackintosh community.They are alot of Programs

Or Kexts intallers out there. Since You are a beginner i recommend you to use KEXT UTILITY.

You open the programs and just drop the kexts inside the program and it install the drivers

Automatic.

For audio you can download Multibeast from the download area.open it and dont select nuthing just go to where it

Drivers and look for the one that say ALC892 ,and just install that because everything is working fine

All you need is audio.

Thanks a lot for your respond, I really appreciate it.

 

I've been searching on this download center but I couldn't find anything, I found one link that might be for my use:

http://www.hackintosh.zone/file/26-nvidia-gt-630/

 

Is that correct? Or is that ONLY for 630 since i have an 660?

In that case, could you please as you said please help find the driver so I can get my graphic card running. I know about the kext installer, I have the pre-installed Kext Wizard in Programs and it seems to work :)

Is there only one Library? Because when I open Extensions there's only like 7 files and none of them that I installed are there :S Sorry for theese questions but I'm very new here.

Hi. I don't know how to proceed with the site you linked me. It's a lot of text, I downloaded and installed the appleHDaudio kext and now I don't know what to do.

 

Yes, I've tried graphicsenable=no but i dont think that'll help if i have no drivers, did u find any mate?

I've tried to install the kext for HDAenabler892.kext and the AppleHDA.kext.

Do I need to enter anything in the Chameleon boot plist?

Here's my current boot options:

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

<key>Credits</key>
<string>www.hackintosh.zone</string>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>no</string>
        <string>-x</string>

Ok after you install the audio kexts did you check system preference and check if you audiocard

Show up? And you can choose audio output to see if you get sound?

Also restart the pc if you install the audio kexts ,maybe you need to restart for it to work.

I've installed them and restarted but it doesn't work and nothing's showing up in the sound output menu.

 

Did you check my boot options?

I use the -x boot option, is that maybe making this issue?

 

Anyway, how can i proceed from here..
