    HIS HD7850 with FakeID = Black Screen on Login Screen?

    Thank you. I will try this tonight when I get home from the office.
  2. Hi guys, I have a AMD Radeon HD7850 GPU in my Intel hackintosh build. The issue with it is that when I use Clover's FakeID to spoof it as a supported card, after it says "GPU HW <something>" from the kernel, the screen will assumably go black, and then nothing is displayed when I assume the login screen is displayed. I have tried testing all the ports on the card, from DVI, HDMI and the 2 Mini DisplayPorts through a MiniDP to DP adapter, but it seems that the GPU is outputting to some odd output, or just giving a black screen. The only way to rescue the machine is... and I'm sorry to say... the reset button. My configuration is a ASRock H81M Motherboard, with a HD7850 2GB HIS GPU (Real ID in Clover = 6819, Spoof ID = 0x68181002). Parameters used: FakeID [ATI] = 0x68181002 (set as per Clover wiki) InjectATI = True FB Config = Futomaki (is this even needed? Tried booting without this set, still the same black screen) Ports = 5 (Default setting, but I only have 4 Ports) I really want to use the GPU on the DVI Port. Is there a way to say to the card that I want it to output to the DVI port, or which output I want to use? I appreciate the help, this is driving me nuts, but this hackintosh has worked mostly out of the box with a few mods to the kexts to enable audio, etc.
  3. Gave up on the AMD Hackintosh, went and installed Mavericks on the Intel Hackintosh. Pretty much everything worked out of the box, apart from my GPU and WiFi PCIe Card.
  4. Did that, got further, but stalls at: panic: HPET Not available... CPUs configured incorrectly after some time. I think it's something with either the UEFI BIOS on the motherboard or the CPU not being supported... Even with the following: -v slide=0 -f -x npci=0x2000 cores=1 It still throws that exception. However, on my work Intel rig, it works fine - OS X Installer boots up like there wasn't any issues (hah, because Apple loves Intel or I've just got a winning combo of parts in the Intel rig). I think I will try to still get the AMD rig booting, but if it's just to the installer, I'm happy. I'll play around on my Intel Core i3 hackintosh.
  5. Do I need to use a special kernel or something to boot the OS X Mavericks Installer from USB on this AMD Build which has a ASRock 970Extreme3 Motherboard and a AMD FX4300 Quad-Core CPU? Here's what I see on Clover's UEFI screen: I followed this guide, located here, http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298074-guide-create-boot-usb-installer-os-x-mavericks-on-windows/ , and made two USB drives, one to run Clover and one to hold the OS X Installation USB. Clover boots the installer as follows: But then I get a reboot. Bummer. Back in clover, I select the verbose option: and I get the following: ...but then it freezes and volia. Back to UEFI splash. Apparently I need a AMD Kernel for this to work but I'm not sure how to get the kernel booted. Could someone help me through this (as in, where to put the kernel so Clover can boot it) ? Rig Configuration: ASROCK Extreme3 970 Motherboard 4GB DDR3 Corsair Memory Boot USB is in USB2.0 Ports on back of Motherboard No HDD (barebones configuration, to check compatibility) OS Trying to Boot: Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 Thanks guys! EDIT 1: I see there's a AMD kernel here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/255-amd-kernel-for-mavericks-109109110921093/ but how do I apply this so the installer can use it? EDIT 2: Got it booting to a part where it says [PCI Configuration Begin] and then it just stops...
