    then remove the voodooHDA.kext.

    Bootup with -s (single user mode)
    then:

    /sbin/fsck -fy
    /sbin/mount -uw /

    cd /System/Library/Extentions
    rm -R VoodooHDA.kext
    touch /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
    reboot

    Greetings

    Great after a day of searching i at last came across this.....which i hope is the right path


    I have the delight of having taken over a friends wee hackie

    Of course I immediately stuck in a sound card (mia midi) grabbed the needed kexts (i think)
    In the rush I of course did not read every forum

    And then a logic interface issue occurred ( I #$%%$ upped !) and seem to have gotten side tracked into tracing the sound issue


    I ran the script to uninstall the appleHDA And dang went and loaded the VoodooHDA.kext via the kext wizard!

    Rebooted

    And yes as you guessed the dred grey screen "you need to restart your computer etc. popped up"
    Panic panic panic to the bottom of my kernel!

    Aai carumba

    Hours of googleing later I discovered this

    Yay he thought……….

    "to remove the voodooHDA.kext.

    Bootup with -s (single user mode)

    Done !

    then:

    /sbin/fsck –fy

    *****File SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED ********

    So far so good


    /sbin/mount -uw /

    System/Library/Extensions

    I get a message……………….. –sh:System/library/extensions is a directory

    All good I know the .kext reads as a directory
    Then I enter

    rm -R VoodooHDA.kext
    touch /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
    reboot

    And it goes into panic attack !

    Now if I do the same I am told

    No such file or directory ( a good thing I think) and if i search in the same manner for the applehda also not finding it.

    i appolgize for the laborious post but as they say the devil is in the detail.

    So what do i do next ?

    how do i restore that applehda file ? i did pop a copy on my desk top but how do i find it using single user ?

    Please help
