It is my first build, I did not imagine it will be so fast and stable. in fact I spent some days to find all the kexts and tricks to put it all working.

I believe the worst part was installing the VoodooHdaSettingsLoader. It was difficult to understand it was not a kext, I keep on looking but I did not find it. After removing it I could set the sound.

It is really amazing how OS X turn an old pc in a fast and reliable machine. Tanks Tony, Toleda and friends here!

I am writing this lines from it at this very moment. I ask you to forgive me for the slowness in writing this article. As it is my first time build, I am organizing and reproducing this in another HD to be sure of all the steps. thanks for your patience.

To be continued...
