OK, OK, I’m late to the upgrade party. But if it works just fine for me why upgrade?
Well in my case I needed to run Quicken for Mac which requires El Capitan <grumble, grumble>
In fact El Capitan runs faster than Yosemite, so I’m thankful. But not for the Disk Util app, that’s a severe downgrade from Yosemite’s.
Most of all, they turned off the startup chime. I use that when walking away waiting for the 5 minute boot cycle (I wonder if there’s a boot argument to make that shorter 🙂
Anyway, I wanted this article available as at least one place where someone can google and find a way to enable or turn on the chime for El Capitan.
It’s pretty easy:
- Launch Terminal
- Enter the following command
sudo nvram SystemAudioVolumeDB=”%d0″
sudo nvram SystemAudioVolume=”%100″
Exit/quit from Terminal and reboot, if all went well the chime should sound on startup!
