Audio Problem in VirtualBox (Win81x64/Haswell)


GringoKing    0


I installed Niresh's OSX Mavericks on an ASUS Laptop in the latest VirtualBox,
following the detailed instructions at MacBreaker .

Hardware:       ASUS N550JK
Processor:      Intel Core i7-4710HQ
Video-1:        Intel HD Graphics 4600
Video-2:        NVIDEA GeForce GTX 850M
Audio:          Realtek High Definition Audio
Memory:         16 GB DDR3 SDRAM
Host OS:        Windows 8.1 (64bit)
Guest OS:       OS X Mavericks 10.9.0 ? (Niresh Distro)
VirtualBox:     4.3.14r95030

Everything worked pretty much flawless, by carefully setting up the VM.
The only thing that doesn't work is Audio. I get weird clicking and other
noises when changing and typing in terminal. I have tried changing stuff
in the Audio settings, but the problem prevails and the noises change only
slightly. Also at one point when trying mess with VoodooHDA settings,
there must have been some kind of kernel crash as the machine suddenly
refused to respond and CPU at 100%.

So my conclusion is that I don't have the right kernel drivers for the
Audio provided by the VirtualBox machine.

The VirtualBox Audio settings are:
Host Driver:  
          Null Audio Driver
        * Windows DirectSound

        * Intel HD Audio
          ICH AC97

And on the OSX "Sound" settings side they are:
Sound Effects:
          Speaker (Black Unknown)
        * Headphones (Green Front)
          SPDIF-out (Black Rear)
          Speaker (Black Unknown)       Apple speaker port
        * Headphones (Green Front)      Headphone port
          SPDIF-out (Black Rear)        Optical digital-out port
          Microphone (Pink Front)       Microphone port
          SPDIF-in (Black Rear)         Optical digital-in port
          CD (ATAPI)
And on the OSX "VoodooHDA" settings side they are:
        * 1: Speaker (Green Rear)
          2: Headphones (Green Front)
          3: SPDIF-out (Black Rear)
          4: Line-out (blue Rear)
          5: Microphone (Pink Front)
          6: SPDIF-in (Black Rear)
          7: CD (ATAPI)

        *  /AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@1e0000/AppleACPIPCI/HDEF@5

[ ] Use SSE2
[ ] Enhance stereo


I have no idea what would be the proper settings for this controller.
Any suggestions?

Please note that I'm new to OSX and have little experience and understanding
of how to find/use/install Kext files and editing plists. So any help would
be much appreciated.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named" repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
