ALC887 not working/detected

I set up a Hackintosh for the first time and it took a while to set up. I got everything to work EXCEPT for sound. I tried to installations, but when I run the command file, it says no audio device detected. On clover bootloader, under audio, it says "Unknown HDA device". My audio device is Realtek ALC887. Any help would be appreciated. @Niresh

My system: 

  • Intel i3 6100 3.7 Ghz
  • Nvidia GTX 750 Ti
  • MSI H110m Pro-D motherboard
  • Windows 10 Home - Toshiba 1tb HDD 7200rpm NTFS
  • Macintosh Sierra - WD Green 750gb HDD 5400rpm HFS+

Open terminal & run the following command post the output here

sudo lspci -nn

Have you tried installing AppleALC.kext, now AppleALC.kext requires Lilu.kext Install both and let me know the results

If it doesn't work remove AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext then install VoodooHDA.kext check if it is working 

Get back to me with the results @teemo

Hi, I tried the first method but it did not work. I also tried VoodooHDA but when I try to access it, it says "No VoodooHDA Devices Detected". I tried to run that command but I get the following: "sudo: lspci: command not found". Any ideas?

@teemo Download and Install LSPCI, then run the command post results

How did you install macOS Sierra?

Okay when I run lspci after installing it, I get: 

Mehtabs-iMac:~ mehtabmahir$ sudo lspci -nn
DirectHW.kext not loaded.
lspci: Cannot find any working access method.
Mehtabs-iMac:~ mehtabmahir$ 

First time I installed the version (audio still didnt work), then I made an official vanilla apple installation through app store and installed that.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
