Hi everyone :)

After many attemps, I've installed Snow Leopard 10.6 on my PC with the following hardware components:

Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3,

AMD Phenom II X4 945,

4GB DDR3,

XFX Radeon HD 5750 1GB,

Maxtor 250GB S-ATA II (Windows 7),

Samsung 500GB S-ATA II (Snow Leopard),

and two optical drives.


I've downloaded the kexts that I've found at http://www.osx86.net...?do=file&id=476 (already patched with the Device ID), and after installing them I got a Full HD resolution (I use an HDMI cable) but without QE/CI (no graphic acceleration). So I've tried to update my OS from 10.6 to 10.6.8 with the Combo Update; I've restored the "IOPCI" and the "IOACPI" kexts with success, but if I try to reinstall also the video kexts, after the boot loading I get a blue screen. However, I can access to Snow Leopard only in Safe Mode ("-x" at the boot).

Every kext/driver that I find on the web, doesn't solve my problem. I've read a lot of tutorials and hints, but none of them worked for me. :(


So, there's a way to make this XFX Radeon HD 5750 working, with QE/CI too? :mellow:

I hope you can help me to fix this problem.


Thanks in advance. :)

Hi there,

Have a look at this topic.

Have you changed your model type to MacPro3,1? In that topic the card works out of the box

Nothing :( Still not working.

Maybe it's a problem of the drivers? Perhaps I need of a 10.6.8 compatible version. :/

Suggestions?

What if you boot with -f
Only boot with this flag, and if you like you can use -v ofcourse, but avoid the -x because you'll not be able to check whether this is working in that case or not.

This flag will ignore the system caches and load all kexts available. If the error is over, you know that the caches are corrupt or something. Give it a shot ;)

I have to boot my Lion constantly with -f (ignore caches) or my keyboard won't work, but that's another story :)

P.S. I'm sorry for any misspelled english or for being a bit short. It's been a bit late for me ;)

Don't worry for your english, it's not my native language... I'm italian ;)

However, I've tried both with "-f" and "-v" without success. :(
With "-v" I can't see what appears on my screen because the files are loaded too fast.

Now, I'm going to replace the kexts of my VGA that I've downloaded from osx86.net, with the originals included in my Hackintosh installation because Safe Mode doesn't works always and I'd like to boot without "-x". :unsure:

Hmm... Well, I'm also a kinda new hackintosher, so the only thing is wait until somebody can answer your question / problem with more knowledge.

Sorry if I cannot help you any further.

you must tell us, what we would see on your boot screen, otherwise no help
take a snapshot with your camera.

this card should be supported out of the box.

Hi,
Yesterday I got this error screen during boot: "CPU halted: It is now safe to turn off your computer".
So I've reinstalled my Hackintosh, and now I haven't any kext or driver installed. In fact I have a 1024x768 resolution without QE/CI.

What bootloader CD did you use?
Did you already try Chameleon Wizard´s Graphicsenablers checkbox?
That way my AMD´s HD5450 is working fine with 10.6.8 QE/CI.
If 1you only want to try once, you can add the argument GraphicsEnabler=Yes at boot in the Cameleon screen too of course.

Yes, no additional kext is needed for my PCI graphics, the kexts installed with OSX make use of the video card by default.
Whether this is true for a 5750 as well, I cant tell, but it will be easy to find out. :)

Something may have got lost with the update.
Can you boot with -x -f to find out? You might try -v too, to post the error message, someone should be able to tell you whats wrong.
