Hey there,
let me start this by saying I'm a complete noob when it comes to hackintosh, and yet somehow I managed to install one in my AMD machine. I'm currently running Snow Leopard and everything is working fine (AMD Phenom II X4 955, running with 8GB without needing to use maxmem).
The only thing I can't get to work is my Radeon 5970.
I have tried several different methods, some of them were from here, and they all either resulted in Snow Leopard not initializing (like a kernel panic but without a kernel panic), or just a black screen and my 5970's fan going wild. All these methods were based on editing kexts or boot files, so I decided I was going to try something different.
I found this topic where this guy manages to make it work just by using DSDT edits. The thing is I don't know jack {censored} about DSDT edits, and even though I looked up some stuff online, I barely know enough to try and understand. My problem with following the DSDT method is that is requires me to find where my Radeon 5970 is on my DSDT file, and I'm not sure I'm doing it right. I think I found where my Radeon is on the DSDT, but I also can't figure out where to put the code included by EEE3 on his topic.
To find where my Radeon was in my DSDT I used the instructions contained in this topic, which is based on using IOReg. From what I gathered the display address of my GFX card is 0x00020000 and the device is PCE2, but again, I'm not sure at all.
What I'm asking for is some help on how to find my GFX card on the DSDT and edit it like EEE3's topic explained. I'm going to include a screenshot of the display section of my IOReg and the DSDT file if it helps. Any help is appreciated! :)
