Sorry For My English Bad
My graphics card ati radeon hd 5450 working on snow leopard after installed 10.6.6.
And how do make them work
Only For Kernel Vanilla
Waring Backup Your Data
1.Download the all_in_one.rar(down)
2.Install ATI Chameleon bootloader for Radeon HD5000 or kabyl boot
3.The ROM image under /Extra should be named <vendorid>_<deviceid>.rom(ATI 5450 is 1002_68f9.rom)
4.Install Atiframebuffer.kext and ATY_init.kext to S/L/E (ATI5000Controller don’t need)
<string>Your Resolutions </string>
ATI 5450 tested Fb working on Uakari,Vervet,Hoolock and other untested.Recommend Hoolock.
6.Install update 10.6.4 reboot and install graphic update 1.0 (if you get kernel panic after installed graphic update 1.0,try boot –x to safe mode and remove all ATIRadeonX3000.kext,I use hfs+ for windows to remove it )(the graphic update 1.0 only for 10.6.4)
7.Open OSX86Tool repair permissons.
8.Install Update 10.6.6 will add ATIRadeonX3000.kext,ATI5000Controller.kext
After reboot will it work,you need to do step by step,If you get any error tell me.
ATI 5450 is 68f9
ATY_init.kext not support 5450 so it will display the 5500
QE CI it work
Hello White Apple :-)
Please to meet you bro :-)
Forgive my english i am french ;-)
I got a A degree in electronics but i am not good in programing, i am no reel expert like you, i try to learn but it'sreally complicate , some people say so many different thing and way to do them ,its hard to follow all the different forum to properly setup a good hackintosh when you didnt choose the right component.
I know your tutorial is for vanilla kernel only , sorry i dont know if the boot cd i use is vanilla or not , it was the last nawcom boot CD, hope its not a problem, then I follow your step by step guide

so i start with retail 10.6 then update 10.6.4 , i toke out the ATI5000 & X3000 as you say in the GFX update after 10.6.4 .
- during the reboot from the update 10.6.4 i had some problem with the ATY INIT( the system show that he couldnt load some part of it)not just a simple writing like loading failed , more a list of the different port or component.
- When i update to the 10.6.6 , it block at the end of the instal , so i instal the combo from another boot drive 10.6.7,
When i boot now i got a white page with some glitch on it or maybe video noise, i dont know how to describe it, i can send you picture if you like.
I like to have the selection of screen & size so i didnt put the resolution in the .plist.
Do you think that why i can't have the 3 screen working with your tutorial or the other i try ?
I try many instal before with similar technique (Lion Kext or 10.6.7, different all in one for 5450) but the best result were no 100 % full compatibility :
- 2 HD 5450 full 6 screen but no QE CI ( no chess & impossible to instal some program)
- 1 HDMI with QECI & translucide bar, and the VGA port work after 28 minute but only in Mirror & vga display is not recognize in the prefpanel video output screen.
I am getting nowhere , it's been 4 week or maybe more , i am getting crazy lol
On one of your post, you said that we get 100% full compatibility if we instal Lion , is that real ?
I am doing Video editing & audio production , do you think it worth it to update my config to Lion or better to instal it 10.6.7 or 10.6.6 (planing of upgrading the RAM to 16 giga total )
If 10.6.7 or 10.6.6 for 100% compatibility, do you know what can i do to get full support like you guys? even if the translucide bar dont work ?
If you need info or anything please let me know i will write down for you.
PS : when i was doing the different test with the 2 video card i also seen the problem of having twice device in slot 1 instead of 1&2 .(it was not your tutorial i did your with 1 card to be sure before plug the other)
Hope you can help me , dont know if you ever heard of instalation problem like the one i had i look arround and didnt find solution, (i know i should have look for the right equipment before buying this component, but now i am broke, its to late so i got no choice) .
Do you got any idears of what i can do ?
