  1. ATI Radeon 5400 or 5000 series on Lion Full QE CI

    I've tried this and other many ways, but the problem is that my card it's no been recognized by the OSx. It recognize it on the boot, but when the system is loaded up, only the Intel HD graphics is active. I can disable the Intel HD on the BIOS, for what I've goggled there's no way of setting the Intel as discret. With the intel I can do much, I cant even watch a video on youtube with this card. It sucks. I must install Windows 7, cause I work with photography and video and can't be without good VGA performance. A real shame because I loved Lion, this week as been so much fun playing with it. A real shame.
  2. ATI Radeon 5400 or 5000 series on Lion Full QE CI

    Hey guys, I have Lion 10.7.4 installed on a Hp Dm4 1095br with a ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5450 1gb .. but there's no way I can make the OSX load the ATI Kext files. On a verbose book I can see that it recognizes the card just fine, but when the system is up I only have my Intel Hd Graphics GPU working. I tried to disable the Hybrid video in mi BIOS but it's a locked function, even if I switch off the Hybrid, goes back on automatically. I don't know what else I can do, I've search this forum like crazy and no solution so far. Hope you guys can help me.
  3. I finally got into the Advanced settings on my Bios, but I can't disable the Hybrid Graphics function. Even if I change the option, falls back to Hybrid automatically. I've tried at least 10 different solutions found here on the forum and another forums, and anyone got my ATI card recognized. I know that the bootloader recognizes it because it shows in the boot ATI CARD POSTED, but the osx can't recognize at all.
  4. Yes. the injector is in place, the kexts too. But as I said, it's like the ATI card didnt existed. It doesnt show up in the System Info and the kexts doesnt work. There is a way to force the system to see the Ati? I saw in other post that a guy used a .rom file, and in the chameleon there's an option to use a ATI Rom, but I have no idea how to do that. I'm actually using the Intel HD kexts, but even if I delete the intel kexts will not recognize, and I end up with the Intel HD with only 64MB of video.
  5. Hey guys, I'm new in the OSX world, I managed to get the Iatkos L2 working on my Hp Dm4 1095br, so far I got the following working: Video: Intel HD Graphics 771 MB Ethernet Working Realtek Audio Working with VoodooHda Bluetoth (didn't install anything, just works) Keyboard with some problems in the layout, but nothing that bug me Touchpad works but I got no Tapping function, have to use the buttons. My specs: Intel Core core i7 620M 2.66ghz 6gb Ram DDR3 SAMSUNG HM500JJ 500gb SATA AHCI ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5450 1024mb My problem is, I installed the kexts for the 5450 but they dont work. Some posts I've read tell to get the device ID and put in the kext, but in the system monitor, all I got is the Intel GPU card, there is no sign of the ATI at all. How can I get the lion to recognize the 5450? I hope you guys can help me out.
