    When I installed iDeneb 1.4, OS X was not detecting my keyboard but there was a sound, as i can hear a start up music. So i thought to try another distro SnowOSX Universal v3.5.

    After Installing this distro, OS X detected my touchpad & keyboard so I was able to get in to the system after registration but problem is no sound.

    Once again, my question is ...

    Default

    The only thing you can do is try you have a 50-50 chance or you could search to see if there has been an updated kext for the version of OS X you are running. Be prepared for frustation!
    You will need to download Pacifist in order to open a OS X distro and extract the kext you wish to try.
