Just a quick update for you guys, the AMD*.kexts are not included in the BaseSystem.dmg but are actually part of the Essentials.pkg. Not having the ATI6000 controller loaded during install will probably prevent these from being installed during installation as well. After install and once you've added it back and rebooted to your installed OS, just rerun the Essentials.pkg from within OSX or extract and install them using Pacifist.

holy {censored} i have so much more to learn.....

{censored} me I've tried every which way to get it to install. I actually got it to install once, but I forgot what method I used because I tried booting into it and couldn't get it, so by that time I'd forgotten what I'd done.

So I'm going to go back to the very first vanilla install and do that step by step.
Then I need to remove the ati6xxx kext from the installer drive.
Then I need to reboot and install.
Then I need to boot back into Lion, and install the kext on ML via the kext wizard.

Do I have that right?

What kext? The ati6xxx kext I have to download? If I drag in into kext wizard will it automatically put it on my install drive?

HD6xxx series has known permissions problems with ML. Thankfully this is very fixable:

Fix:
Make sure you've got hidden files shown. Then open your install usb, navigate to system -> library -> extensions and copy ATI6000Controller.kext to a safe location (e.g. copy it to the folder of essential files). Now delete the ATI6000Controller.kext. Boot the installer with the boot flags -v -x -f and hopefully it will boot (all be it at basic resolution with no QI / CE). Now install OS X as usual. Once OS X is installed use kext utility to re-install the ATI6000Controller.kext,
I've just done that off the top of my head so check I've got the method right and get back to me.


How does one USE the kext utility? Or is it the kext wizard? Where do I reinstall the file once installed?
