well, as I said, the bootloader is reading my keyboard 1 time out of 5... if I'm lucky... every time I have to restart my pc using the button hoping the keyboard will work... other updates: I will try this (I know it comes from tonymac, but it could be good, because I haven't to use ###### or other things)

Since many of you have issues getting your AMD Radeon HD 6000 series card to work in Mountain Lion (when it worked great in Lion), I decided to make this guide.

Credits: Haysphere

Part 1: Setting up the ###### Drive
1. Insert your ###### Flash Drive into a working Mac. Maybe your MacBook Pro, working Lion installation, etc.
2. Run this command in terminal to unhide files "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles 1" (copy and paste that into terminal and hit enter)
3. Force Finder to quit. You can do this in activity monitor. It will automatically restart.
4. Open Finder and navigate to your ###### Drive
5. Navigate to System/Library/Extensions
6. MAKE A BACKUP OF the kext "ATI6000Controller.kext" and then DELETE it.

Part 2: Booting from your ###### Drive
1. Boot from your ###### drive like you usually would. Use the command "GraphicsEnabler=No" in order to boot into Mountain Lion Installer
2. Install Mountain Lion as you usually would
3. After installation, bootup Mountain Lion by booting into your flash drive and then booting into ML, using the command "GraphicsEnabler=No"
4. Copy the ATI6000Controller.kext kext to your new desktop
5. Run ###### (Download: http://www.tonymacx8...do=cat&id=3)
6. Reboot

Now your graphics should work. I have two monitors (Apple Cinema Display and another 25" 1080p monitor) running with full graphics acceleration Very fast and no lag!

For those wondering, I fixed my machine in my sig by replacing the parts with the exact same things. Not everything blew. I now run a surge protector on my phone line and computer.

You're welcome!


to get my HD6970 working, so I will reinstall ML... yesterday evening I had no luck recognizing my HD3000... another problem: I'm installing ML without a bootloader, so I have to boot with the bootloader taken from the USB flash drive used for the installation... yesterday I tried then to install a bootloader to boot directly from HDD and not from flash drive, I tried chimera and chameleon, but both of them gave me always a kernel panic... the only way to boot up the system was using the bootloader from the flash drive (a different version of chameleon I suppose) and booting in safe mode. any ideas? I'm thinkin on giving up with this... nothing seems to work as it should...

EDIT: tried that. the positive thing is that now I can boot WITHOUT safe mode... the bad thing is that if I try to boot directly with my hd6970 I just have a white screen without anything else... (I had this problem in Lion... never solved it)

hello black24, what problem you have?
ok, if you boot -x not load kext for your keyboard, and all kexts have install in S/LE, configure your boot.plist with this flag UseKernelCache=Yes

hello! :)
the problem with my keyboard is that I can't write! it isn't recognized at all! so I can't boot because I can't select my HDD... don't know why... 1 hour ago I tried again and I had to reset the pc using the button almost 15 times.. I lost 10 minutes... finally my keyboard worked and I was able to boot..

NOW, I reinstalled ML to follow that steps to get hd6970 BOOT with ML... but I just have a white screen... as I wrote in the edited post above yours, the good thing is that now I can boot without -x, just -v and GraphicsEnabler=No and it works... (graphicsenabler because if I don't do that, my hd6970 gives me the white screen...) now I will try to boot with the integrated HD3000, but I don't think it will be recognized...

my keyboard is USB... in bios it works perfectly... how can i post the extra folder? that located in *HDD name*? just make a zip file of it?

EDIT: problems... just problems... reinstalled ATI6000 controller.kext using kextwizard... well, now, even if I boot with graphicsenabler=no or without it I get a white screen...
if I boot with my integrated graphics HD3000, it can't boot because it is stuck at the same problem of yesterday... (it's the same photo I took yesterday because it is stuck always there...)

EDIT 2: where is the extra folder? can I see it from windows? because I can't now...

EDIT 3: well, I'm thinking... I have NO bootloader installed in the HDD... I have no smbios.plist etc... for now, I always boot with my flash drive which has got chameleon... maybe the extra folder is created by the bootloader? (I'm asking because I don't know :D )

yes

yes but I can't see that folder... from windows, even if I show hidden files, there is no folder called extra... should I find it when ML is booted up?


EDIT: the commands worked! thank you! now I booted with GraphicsEnabler=No... what should I do now? the EXTRA folder is not present in the HDD... probably because I have no bootloader installed... what can I do now? I should install my HD3000 integrated... because it is not recognized...

in the README, I have to copy ALL of the lines with commands? or just one by one executing every single command?

EDIT: I just installed HD3000 kexts you gave me, I will try them first to see if anything changed, then I will try adding the extra folder, thank you

EDIT2: the system booted with those kexts... but I have NO acceleration and the system does not recognize the intel GPU... it only says Integrated 64MB shared memory...
