About This File


No software is installed onto your computer, just a basic script

1. download the zip

2. extract the two files

3. place the two files (without the folder) into the /Extra/Themes folder. You should see 'Default' folder, macbootchime and startup.aif in your themes folder now.

4. Go to 'System Preferences', 'Accounts', click on your account name, then click on 'Login Items' to the right.

5. Press the + button, navigate to your /Extra/Themes folder, and select macbootchime

6. Restart

On restart, you will here the mac chime, however it only sounds when the desktop is visible. Dont think this can be gotten around due to the way real macs use EFI.

Anyway, hope this helps people, and it is actually nice to hear it chime!

Only takes a minute to actually setup, and nothing is installed onto your computer.

To remove, follow steps 4-5, but highlight macbootchime and press -

there is nothing in the folder, no zip file as explained above and obviously no macbootchime or startup.aif files.
