Try this? Source and applicable quote follows:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1398604&page=2

I know this thread has pretty much died out, but I found an answer on the ArchLinux Wiki at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBook --

1. Reboot with an OSX installation disc
2. Start the Terminal
3. Issue the command "# /usr/sbin/nvram SystemAudioVolume=%01"

I can confirm that this works on a late-2010 Macbook Air and Snow Leopard.

And from here:

http://forum.soft32.com/linux/rid-st...ict309614.html

I use the command nvsetvol from the package powerpc-utils on my ibook.
"nvsetvol 0" will turn it off, but I like "nvsetvol 1".

Couldn't agree more, that sound is really aggravating

Thanks to all for the suggestions.

Buddy of mine opened his with a few .45 shots. Worked magically. (Not PPC, or I would've gone mad... he gave me his PPC unit a while back.)

I actually like the sound, myself, but it is wayy too loud on my PowerMac G4 on startup. I'll dl the little tool. And I have a question; Why do people hate OS X? Its well updated (about every two years) it has amazing software support when compared to other UNIX/Linux derivatives, and its Aqua/Quartz is vastly better than window's current set up. I can't say its the best interface out there, but it is pretty nice.

Need a part for a PC or Mac? PM me, I'll let you know if I come across it.

OS X trumps Windows on every level.

MorphOS, OS4 and Classic Amiga systems are the only ones who are real 'Amigas', not that joke AROS or Amiga Forever.

@Kesa

On powerup, take 25 pound sludge hammer and strike Macmini as hard as you can where you think it will turn off speaker.

WORKS FOR ME!!
