Hi,
Audio on my 9470m works perfectly 90% of the time, but every now and then the audio will come out of the speakers only and not the audio jack. A reboot always fixes this, but I was wondering if there was a way to reset audio w/o having to reboot.

Minor issue
Thanks.

No idea without "Problem Reporting" files. Read post #1, "Problem Reporting". Carefully.

Hey. I have a 2560p HP Elitebook and I want to use hackintosh on it. Is it possible to run my WWAN module with Mac OS X?

This guide does not cover WWAN (therefore is off-topic). But you may find some information by using search.

:oops: Apologies all USB's working as expected having followed all instructions!
I have installed El Capitan using the SSDTs you mention in the configuration you supplied in your zip files ... but ... like others I cannot get the USB ports on the left side of the 8460p to work. I rebooted several times with USB 2.0 sticks in the ports without luck. I have the same 8460p. Any ideas?

If your laptop has USB3 (NEC/Renasas), you need to install GenericUSBXHCI.kext.
They won't be perfect but will work if you plug the device in before booting.
It is why 6-series laptops with USB3 are not a good choice for 10.11.x+.

I have placed GenericUSBXHCI.kext in the "other" folder under Clover/kexts in the EFI... but ... no success. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to boot with any special options?

Wrong. Kexts placed in EFI/Clover/kexts are used only when injection is taking place (installer and recovery).
Kext injection is not used for your system partition.
You must install the kext to /S/L/E or /L/E.

Thanks for the quick response. Used KextBeast to inject the kext. USB 3.0 ports work if I boot up with a USB 2.0 device is in one of the USB 3.0 ports otherwise the ports are not available. I don't have any USB 3.0 devices to try at this time.

Thanks again

Yes, as expected.

are there any PCIe wi-fi adapters with 5Ghz capabilities that are whitelisted and will work with El Capitan?
