The Build

My old macMini with 1.4GHz & 4 GB RAM became terrible for running Xcode & other applications together. It takes 5 mintues to open all needful applications like Xcode 8, Simulator, Chrome/Firefox. Then only I can start start work. Sometimes it hangs too much that I have to restart it. And now watching Xcode 9 beta on WWDC 2017 with multi simulator functionalities I decided to keep the macMini in my garage.
Now my focus of this custom build was cost & performance effective both at the same time. I know I can insert more RAMs at any time.

BIOS Settings

1. To access BIOS/UEFI Setup, press and hold F2 on a USB Keyboard while the system is booting up.
2. Load Optimized Defaults
3. VT-d - Disabled
4. Fast Boot Mode - Disabled
5. OS Type to Other OS
6. IO SerialPort - Disabled
7. XHCI Handoff - Enabled
8. Save and exit.

Unibeast 7.1.1
Used a 8GB flash drive with macOS Sierra 10.12.6 installation file and selected UFEI options to make it bootable.

Then I used F12 to got boot options and booted from flash drive.

Multibeast 9.1.0

After fresh installation I used the following configuration shown below.[/SIZE]


And after restarting...BOOM! Its ready for use except...the Audio.
Then I used this renowned file: https://github.com/toleda/audio_CloverALC/blob/master/audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip to enable audio. But Again another problem raised. No Audio after sleep/wake :banghead:

Then I found this link: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/fix-no-sound-after-sleep-on-1150-and-possibly-other-realteks.170063/page-12#post-1444052

I followed:
  1. Download RehabMan's latest file
  2. Move to the CodecCommander.kext from Release folder to Desktop
  3. Right click on CodecCommander.kext file. Then Show Package Contents -> Contents
  4. Edit Info.plist (I used plistEditorPro or Xcode)
  5. Search the LAST <key>Realtek ALC1150</key>
  6. Change "Update Nodes" from false to true
  7. <key>Update Nodes</key>
  8. <true/>
  9. Add to /S/L/E with kextbeast
  10. reboot
Now Everything is working as far I know.

can you post you .plist file or EFI folder ?
I recommend you print out his installation procedures and follow them, checking off each step as you go along. This is how you learn and become self efficient. :thumbup:
