    MSI GT72-2qe i7 5700hq Anyone able to offer help?

    I have yes and found results but not with this specific CPU unfortunately. I have tried a custom SMBIOS based on the new broadwell macbooks but this didnt change anything. I am currently using this file thanks guys, running out of options I think. This is way beyond my knowledge so I will just have to wait and hope someone tries getting OSX running on this specific laptop.

    MSI GT72-2qe i7 5700hq Anyone able to offer help?

    Hey thanks for the reply. Here's a link to what I'm stuck on https://www.dropbox.com/s/9yk1rtg42cnpnzd/11920403_10154336932559657_1339447548_n.jpg?dl=0 I get to the installer by using the files in the other thread mentioned in my original post. My knowledge on configs and kexts is limited past installing them ect so there will no doubt be things that shouldnt be there although it shouldnt be too bad as the laptop that is been used in that thread is only one below mine with everything been the same baring the CPU which I believe the latest clover should support. I've tried a few methods of install ect but this is as far as I've been able to get once i've installed and rebooted. Thanks in advanced for any information you can give and let me know if there's anything else you need

I have found this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/399-msi-gt72-2qe/however my laptop is a newer version and has a i7 5700hq. Using the clover files on that thread i can get OSX installed but when i get to the first boot i get stuck on root device uuid is blablabla then it gets stuck on this.

  7. Would this apply to the 6470m too?
  8. ANy updates on this really want to get this 6470m working its the last thing i need to do
  9. ill give them all a go just to add if i totally delete 5000controller and 3000G kexts i cant boot without using safe mode but get no graphics support card shows 3mb of Vram :S ill let you know my findings with the frame buffers thanks for the help by the way in verbose mode im getting ati5000contoller.kext - kextd cannot be found and is not available in early boot this is when ive put 5000 back not deleted it any ideas?
  10. thanks for the reply non of them work both cause the same problem (black screen with white distorted blocks) just before logon. pulling my hair out with this!!
  11. right, ive been at this for more than two weeks straight and no matter what i do i cant get this card working properly ive tried installing on lion and mountain lion with the same results what ive tried is the ati 5000 injecter and also manually editing the 5000contoller and 3000xcontroller putting my id into both (68f91002) and repairing permissions what this does is boots me to a black screen before logon with sort of garbled white blocks but can still hear sound if i press keys on the keyboard ive also installed chiera 1.9.2 which makes my card show up on the first part of verbose mode but then hangs on dsmos has arrived i think maybe somesort of bootflag may get me past this although ive tried alot of them inc. graphicsenabler=yes ive tried every guide i can find on the internet with no avail please somebody say "just try this" and it work both me and my harddrive are tired of reinstalling osx just to have to reinstall again let me know if anyone is willing to give me a hand, im pretty desperate
