Il you lookup Pike R Alpha's repository, you 'll see instructions regarding options/parameters you can pass to the script in order to get your SSDT generated. The script uses a given database of CPU settings and obviously not every single model is included. But you can do it yourself. The instructions to do so are also provided. You can Google for "Pike R Alpha ssdt generator".

For Broadwell/Skylake system you need the Beta version of the script from here.


Regarding audio, you can't just use the audio kexts without the DSDT/SSDT and Config file from my bootpack.

It has all the patches and hot patches to get audio working along with other stuff.
