Did you edit GENERIC
Yes. Added sound and snd_hda

Polite note: This is NOT the way to create a custom kernel. The
handbook mentions that it's advised to create a copy of GENERIC
and work with that.

That's what i've done.

or did you forget to set KERNCONF during build/installkernel?
No. cd /usr/src
make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC

is what I did. No snd_hda

If you copied GENERIC to another file and edited that file, then compiled and installed GENERIC, you're obviously not going to get the added drivers. You'll need to replace GENERIC with the name of the file you edited in the KERNCONF variable.

It looks understandable (allthough not mentioned in the handbook).
Just to be sure, try the recommended approach. If you're not using
KERNCONF, GENERIC will be selected automatically.

    # cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
    (or use any other descriptive name instead of MYKERNEL).
    edit MYKERNEL and add
        device sound
        device snd_hda

That's what i added.

    # cd /usr/src
    # make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
    # make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
    # reboot

Check /etc/make.conf and /etc/src.conf for any strange values
that may be a reason for our strange observations.
