I have used someone else's config.plist and is working now. Job now is to figure out what that difference was that made the sound work.

Many thanks for your help

Hello, all
Updated 2 machines from Mojave like real Mac (i3-5010/i5-5250, HD5500/HD6000)

2. Delete Voodoo from /Library/Extensions
I can't find /Library/Extensions. How do I unhide it?

It's not hidden. This is how to get to it:
Finder -> Go -> Go to Folder - then type in /Library/Extensions just what is in bold.

Hello, all
Updated 2 machines from Mojave like real Mac (i3-5010/i5-5250, HD5500/HD6000)

1. Update Clover to Clover UEFI Boot Mode v2.4k r4961
info.plist from working Mojave - no changes
2. Download and install update from AppStore
3. All works fine except sound
Steps to fix sound (works on both machines):
1. Turn off sound hacks in Clover
2. Delete Voodoo from /Library/Extensions
3. Download latest AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext and put them into /Library/Extensions
4. Search vanila AppleHDA.kext (I found from Mojave) if there is no such file and put into /Library/Extensions
5. The new files unable to work even after the kext rebuild because of the permissions, fix it
Code:
sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions
sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions
6. kext cache rebuild
Code:
sudo kextcache -i /

Good luck )
Sorry,
but what does this mean?
'turning off sound hacks in Clover'??

Does this work for HDMI sound also? Mine quit working on the update to Catalina.
Worked for me for both HDMI and normal Line Out.
