Hi, I am just using the native drivers - nothing else. (I also use the Lion Ati Drivers in Snow Leopard)
DVD Player also crashes for me but I couldnt care less at them moment (almost never used it) - I think you need to use Graphics Enabler + a different Framebuffer to make the dvd player app work.

Man, I would love one of those 27" Displays
P.s I use the latest Chameleon with Lion support
A: Thanks for your help.
The way you set up 5770 is exactly the same how I get it to work with ACD 27" under SL 10.6.7: plug them in, and everything works beautifully OOB!
But there is something strange happening with XFX 5770 + ACD 27" combination after the latest Mac OSX development.
All over the sudden, with the introduction of SL 10.6.8 and Lion, ACD goes black after completing the boot and startup session in SL 10.6.8. Or it comes with the default 1000x768 resolution only in Lion after reporting error that it couldn't load ATI5000Controler kext - link failed due to a number of unresolved linking symbols (__ZN12ATIControler... etc).
Standard DVI Samsung monitor works both through DVI port or through MDP and MDP->DVI passive adapter under 10.6.8 but lack of ATI5000Controler kext causes that even Samsung DVI monitor works only with 1000x768 resolution in Lion.
I have very similar experience with Sapphire 5870 Vapor-X, ACD goes black after the start-up while Samsung DVI monitor works just fine under both 10.6.8 and Lion.
And finally, to make things even more interesting, Genuine Apple 5870 video card and Sapphire 6870 work with ACD beautifully under any SL and Lion DP version - all the tests mentioned above are done with the same Hackintosh HW. Additionally, all these combinations work perfectly well under Windows 7 - dual boot on the same Hackintosh HW.
I have to figure out what to do next to understand if I am making a systematic error with XFX 5770 and ACD or Apple has a problem too. Is there a way to somehow debug this step by step?
Thank you also for the link at TonyMacOsx86 forum but those guys are struggling with the issues I faced some 9 months ago and resolved for SL up to 10.6.7.
And yes, ACD 27" is a beautiful piece of work - almost a piece of art. I bought it with MacBook Air 11" but then started using it with my Hackintosh. User experience with Magic Trackpad and Apple keyboard is like working on a monster iMac while being faster that most of Mac Pros (i7 990X Extreme, 24 GB Corsair Dominator 2000 MHz RAM, 3 OCZ Vertex 2 in RAID 0 involved too.)Update June 5, 2011:
After extensive testing I've done turns out that Sapphire ATI Radeon 5870 Vapor-X and XFX 5770 - Single slot HD-577X-ZMF3 are working fine including MDP as long as you don't use Apple Cinema Display 27" with them!
