  1. Hi, I had the randomly freezing on my system. It is not the same system the yours, but I had a lot messages on console about SMC error. I updated my FakeSMC to the latest version and my system stopped to freezing. Give it a try.

    1) I am researching about it, but the parameters to nvidia GPUs are so different to ATI GPUs. I am afraid to not be able to figure out which keys need to be present on plist to generate ATI graphics strings. 2) Not yet... To do it, I will need to remove the one ATI and one nvidia card from my system. As soon as I take time to bench, I will post the results here.

    I disabled one card but seems something is wrong... Normally the air flow from the cards (when idle) stay about 35 C, but when disabling one card the air flow goes above 55 C. I didn't check the temperature directly on the cards, just the temperature of air flow. I have noticed the fans don't speed up, even with the increase of heat. I am a little bit afraid to be frying my cards. Did you check the temp of your card?

    I have 2x HD5850... I tried Eulemur and like I expected, didn't work... There is any chance, if confirmed the eulemur is working to 2x HD5770, the solution to be adapted by some Guru to HD5850, or am I on the apple's hands? Thanks in advance

    Okay I followed your advice and works... But when I tried to connect two monitors on the same card it freezes OSX. Interesting is the two cards still working, at least a can boot on both and both still on the system profile. When I connect one monitor to each card, the image on one works and the other one has a corrupt image, but i can see the mouse pointer even on the one with corrupt image. Another strange thing... After a tried the combination of the monitors (two on the first card, one on each card, etc.) I can't to log to OSX again. Even if I try the setup that worked before. I tried to boot with -f and -v flags, but OSX still freezing on the blue screen. Edited: I cleaned the caches and now is working again. Did you tried to create an EFI string like aquamac's tutorial to your HD4870? I have heard that new MacPros are using two HD5770, did it solve the problem of two ATI cards? Thanks for the advice. Seems to be okay... Maybe the problem is the fact of your card is not reference card. Did you try another frambuffer. Take a look on http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...&hl=HD+5770

    I took the screenshots with an overclocked i7 @ 4Ghz and one HD 5850 @ 900 mhz gpu clock / 1200 mhz memory clock. I am using boot9 (Trauma's boot modified) and bios on extra. I am looking for a solution, because I have two HD 5850 and OSX freezes with two cards on place. I can only use one card at moment. But I know dual graphics card is possible, probably using EFI string or DSDT.aml edited. I will research on Fermi thread and on aquamac's blog. Any help about two cards will be appreciated.

    sirbow2, I am using boot9 (trauma's modified from HD5770 Thread), it uses Uakari. I believe crossfire (sum of power of two cards) doesn't work on OSX. But I know dual graphics card is possible, probably using EFI string or DSDT.aml edited. I will research on Fermi thread and on aquamac's blog. Thanks for the info.

    I will answer my own questions, maybe it help others or someone can help us to find a solution. 1) Not kernel panic. Sometimes I can even open system profiler, after it I have endless beach ball. Sometimes freezes on blue screen. 2) No. It doesn't cause problems. Otherwise, my benchmarks are better with overclocked GPU with overclocked bios on extra. Overclocked GPU with original bios on Extra also works, but little worse results on benchmarks. 3) I guess crossfire link is not the problem. Because with crossfire link off, the presence of the two cards are suffice to cause the problem above explained. 4) When I can see the system profile, both seems to be correctly configured. But how I said before, after I open the system profile I have endless beach ball (It aplies to other apps too - The first app opened causes the endless beach ball). 5) Not tried. Any help is welcome. I am a bit loosed. I don't know if I need another boot file, if I need to edit my DSDT.aml. If I can't find a solution will be impossible to dual boot this computer. I believe crossfire wil not work because mac limitations, but at least can use with both card connected and better yet, with crossfire link on place. Otherwise will be impossible remove one card every time I boot on OSX and I will still using my weak 8400GS until a better solution arrives. Thanks in advance. I took the screenshots with an overclocked i7 @ 4Ghz and one HD 5850 @ 900 mhz gpu clock / 1200 mhz memory clock.

    Hi, a had the same problem (not exactly, but seems yours)... I have two crossfired HD5850. I guess the problem is not crossfire itself, because even the presence of the two cards cause the problem (crossfire link off). After one card have been removed, the other one worked flawless. I am using boot9 and bios.rom solution. In minutes I will post the answers to may own questions. Maybe it help us to find a solution or any guru can help us.
  11. ATI HD 5770

    First of all, thanks for the hard work of everyone on this thread... I have a x58-ud4p with 3 video cards. 2 x HD5850 overclocked to 940/1200 crossfired and one nVidia 8400GS. At the moment I am using 8400GS when I boot on OSX 10.6.4 and HD5850s when I boot on Win7. I want to use my HD5850s on OSX, but I have some doubts: 1) Will the crossfire create problems, like kernel Panic? 2) Will the overclocked Bios cause some problem? 3) Will I have to disable the crossfire or it will just not work, like it is not there? 4) Will the both cards work (could I plug displays on both)? 5) Is possible to put the kexts of graphics update into extra folder. Will they load on boot? I am thinking to create a USB boot drive, to not have to mess with my setup. But, I am not sure if the will load or if they really need to be on S/L/E. I know, too much questions at same time... But any help or advice will be really appreciated. PS: 1) I am planning to use boot 9 and videocard.rom 2) I know this thread is for HD 5770, but none of my questions are card specific. If anyone knows the answer to any of my questions, it will help not only me, but everybody with the same doubts. Thanks in advance

  13. d00d, Thanks a lot!! That procedure fixed the problem.
  14. I am using an app to generate a license. This app is trying to use my MAC Address to generate the license, but returns the message "Cannot retrieve MAC address". I am using the network method B (recompiled RealtekR1000SL.kext). My System Preferences/Network doesn't show Ethernet (en2) anymore. Now is only Ethernet, but into the System Profiler/Ethernet Cards, the BSD name still en2. By the way, the Mac Address is showing correctly on System Preferences/Network/Advanced/Ethernet. Could the BSD name=en2 be the problem? Any workaround? Could be this license generator made for leopard and doesn't be able to retrieve MAC address on Snow Leopard? Any advice? Thanks in advance.
