Hi
I'm really new in the MAC world
I've just installed Kalyway 10.5.1
after restarting I get the Grey screen with the logo and the loader and then it goes to hundreds little screens of the actrual screen. So in other words I CAN'T USE LEOPARD :blink:
I have an ATI 2600 XT with 512 DDR3
Could you please give me any sujestions of what may be going on and how could I fix it?
Thanks

Pablo


Ok now the screenshots you attached is exactely what I get here.....! Could you post something about your System, Mobo, CPU etc...I wonder if you have a nforce4 motherboard...? Did you get it to work by flashing the 2600xt to let's say a PRO?

Bingo! Got my 2600xt working...but I had to use a dvi-vga dongle into my samsung lcd tv. Now I have full resolution and hardware acceleration, if I switch cables to dvi/hdmi my lcd tv says unsupported resolution...maybe dvi defaults to 1920x1080p??? Is there a way to get this running with dvi? I tried with "Graphics Mode" but that doesn'T sem to work!

What bothers me now is my internal mobo LAN which crashes the whole computer when downloading something bigger...just freezes. Will have to get a realtek lan card to avoid this I fear. forcedeth doesn't get it right...I think it's a well known issue with the asus a8n sli board and won't be fixed.

Now iTunes freezes my pc when trying to hear one a part of the song over the online store...read something about a itunes patch for AMD? Didn'T find it though...hmmm?

UPDATE: The iTunes freeze was because of the crappy forcedeth driver, I installed a lan pci card now lan works as it should! :-) Also DVI works after the triakis patch!!!! My system is completely working now!!! Lucky I am indeed.

dear mcsmart,
thanks for your help to this community...i am here because after a successful install of kalyway 10.5.2 on my hackintosh i tried to install toast titanium 9 and discovered that it could not start because quartz e. and CI were not enabled.

my hardware is :
asus p5kc mobo with C2D e6750
jmicron controller
sata dvd
sata hd 160 gb
ATI RADEON 2600 HD pci-e

i tried to follow your steps but i cannot find what you say in the second step. there is any folder with that name.

  • Extract the archive and copy Natit.kext to /System/Library/Extensions
  • Locate ATIRadeonX2000.kext in /System/Library/Extensions, Open /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX2000.kext/Contents/Info.plist with the editor of your choice and add

anyway.....i tried to go further with your tutorial but , as i could imagine, nothing changed after rebooting and i can assure i prayed much :D

i can still see "C.I. software enable" and "quartz e. not supported"..
please help!!!

thanks

Enter sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AtiRadeonX2000.kext/Contents/Info.plist in a terminal window. This will open the plist for editing. After editing press CTRL+O and ENTER to save the changes.

My question:

I have some trouble using NATIT. Screen resolution is fine after installation (1920x1280) with dual displays and the card seems to be recognized (Radeon HD 2600 Pro), however, system profiler shows CI: software and QE: not supported. Are there any suggestions to get CI/QE working? I have been looking all over the forums.

Thanks

That suggests that the AtiRadeon kext file is not present on your system? In my case it asks for my password and then opens the file.

By the way, I downloaded the latest NATIT package from the IRC channel (irc.osx86.hu, #radeonhd channel). This is much easier, since it uses installers and includes a readme. (Still without CI/QE for me...)

Can you use the Apple DVI-to-video adapter with the Radeon cards?

I'm looking at the PowerColor Radeon 2600 Pro. Has anyone tried this?

Can you post a linky please?!?!?!?!?! I really want to get it working...your tutorial in this thread doesn't work...it doesn't matter what I try I do what people say but it just doesn't work. After I do it all I get is a solid blue background and my cursor, nothing else. It always does this no matter what I try.

And btw: I didn't wright like that...I wrote it all in caps not with mixed capitalizations...

My Diamond 2600PRO 512MB PCI-E looks just like the PowerColor one so I guess the answer is no, it doesn't work. At least mine doesn't...

I've got the same problem as drumthrasher109, also tried the steps and it didn't work my system booted but got only the grey screen with the timer running. So I Installed everything again but this time I user kexthelper to install nati.kext. This worked but no QE so I entered my ID in the info.plist file and walla QE only also the white stripes appeared. So i downloaded the fix (from IRC, with tiny URL, gave me an installer could'nt choose 10.5.1. or 10.5.2) installed it and it logged of and after that only a blue screen with my mouse cursor.

After this i've removed the pciid form the info.plist file but this doesn't help.

ANyone any idea how to fix this without reinstalling everything?

PS: Got an Saphire 2600 HD 512MB PCI-E

Oke I just fixed my problem (I hope ;-) ) what i did is the following.
1) installed natit.kext via kexthelper
2) rebooted my system
3) editted the info.plist and added my pcid
4) rebooted
5) Got whitemenu's => installed (the wrong) whitemenu fix via auto natit installer (belongs to 10.5.2 i think)
6) auto logoff => screwed up system
7) via darwin boot -s deleted my pciid
8) copied the correct menufix to a temp folder (via vista) on my mac hd
9) rebooted via darwin boot -s , mounted my system copied the correct whitemenu fix to the atiradeonx2000GLdriver.dump folder exitted and walla screen was back again
10) copied my backup info.plist file over the original so pciid is back again

Now everything works only one question left: How to test QE and OpenGL?

WELL GUESS WHAT!

I just did 2 installs, yeah 2. Actually 3!

The first one I followed the tutorial all the way through. Didn't work, same {censored}. Blue screen with my cursor.
The second one I followed Wingleaders little tutorial. Didn't work, same {censored}. Blue screen with my cursor.
The third one I just installed the drivers using the provided installer on the IRC #radeonhd channel. Didn't work, same {censored}. Blue screen with my cursor.

Well now what?!?!?!?
