  1. Hey rlf, thanks for your quick reply. Booting with -x -v doesn't change it because it will not hang but reboot no matter what. Yes I had the exactly same settings (default). Video doesn't change it, I used the iGPU of the i5-3570k and a 6870. I'm running on an ASUS P8Z77M-Pro. I tried different install files of the whole Lion Installer, because I thought it might be corrupted, but the md5 hash was good and it didn't change anything either. Still no clue
  2. Hello Community, I am encountering a strange problem. I want to do a clean vanilla install of 10.7 Lion, but the installer quits on me after kext load. As soon as the kext load is done I see a flicker of the Apple boot screen and then the system restarts. Seems like some missing kernel, but I suppose I'm wrong. I tried distros and I made my own boot drive. No difference. The weird thing is, a couple of weeks ago, I did the same without any problems. I tried to upgrade to 10.8, but the graphics don't seem to like me there. So I opted for a clean new install of 10.7 The 10.8 installer loads up fine, the 10.7 Installer doesn't. I had a Bios update then, reverted back to the old one, but it didn't work either. Any input is very well appreciated. Thanks!
  3. 6870 issues

    Hello! I own a XFX Radeon HD6870 HD-687A-ZDFC, which is a non-reference card (the one with two fans), and I can't get it to work under ML 10.8 . I have a fresh install, and AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext seems to be the problem. My device ID's are in all ATI6000Controller.kext, ATIFrambuffer.kext, AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext and ATISupport.kext. I have to delete AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext, otherwise I get a white screen, GPU freeze after bootup. The Systems boots up properly, I can connect via Network and also readout the system.log: kernel[0]: AMDBartsGraphicsAccelerator: ** Device in slot: SLOT--1 ** kernel[0]: ** GPU Debug Info Start ** . . . If I boot without AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext, the desktop comes up, but of course no QE/CI. Do I have to edit the AMDRadeonAccelerator binary found in the kext to adress the fact that it is not a reference card? If so, can anybody point in the right direction? Thank you very much for any ideas you might have. -shinokubo
