    ATI HD5670 Fully working with (QE/CI)

    I tried it (and dozens of other tutorials) with 4830 but had no success. Gave up that card and bought this. I can't help you there, sorry. Perhaps searching the forum will get you the answer but sometimes going over too many posts makes things more complicated. That is the reason why I made this tutorial.

    That's if you have the Chameleon installed which cares about /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist. /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Boot.plist, is OSX's default file for real Macs. So you are fine by editing the one in /Library/Preferences/.

    Sorry I can't really help there. I have always used INTEL for my choice of CPU and clueless about AMD and it's setup for OSX.

    can you boot with -v flag to see where it hangs? Most probably it's your Graphics Card tho.

    I am not sure but you might be right on that sound issue. It might be the HDMI sound on the ATI card. I'd prefer you remove all the kext related to ATI from Extensions folder and then start over. But I also suggest you install [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with Chamelon 2 RC5 in advance to get rid of sound(voodooHDA) and framebuffer problems.

    I had a really good luck with 9800GT with almost every version of OSX. There were only few times where I had to make tweaks which were relatively easy to do. Nvidia cards are mostly problem free with OSX at least with my experience. Sounds like you are having a sound issue there which is not really related to the Graphics problem you are running into. Make sure you are editing your com.boot.plist file with the correct options. If you are still coming up with VoodooHDA problem, before the reboot at step 5 remove that VoodooHDA kext from /System/Library/Extensions folder. Try the reboot with -V again and see how that works. well, what does it say in verbose mode? Where does it really hangs? Errors? Most people does not and should not have problem getting their cards working by fallowing these steps. You might be doing something wrong when fallowing the steps or have messed up your system already. I suggest you do a clean install with minimum post-install changes, if you are having too much problems.

    ATI 5670 Help

    I explained it here step by step. Very easy to fallow. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=241064
  11. Steps to Get Your HD5670 Working 100% ATI Radeon HD5670 (Mostly taken from DaviDemon’s post with few changes. Credit goes to him) Step 1. Do a clean install of Snow Leopard and apply the 10.6.4 update(Required). Step 2. Download and Install Kext Helper b7. Step 3. Open and Install Only these files from within the attachment below. Provided by Netkas. Leave the other files for later. 1. ATY_Init.kext 2. ATI5000Controller.kext 3. ATIFramebuffer.kext 4. ATISupport.kext Step 4. Turn your hidden files on and Go to /Extra folder (located in OSX installed drive) and edit com.apple.Boot.plist. Your boot file should have these keys and strings. Very important. 1. <key>Kernel</key> 2. <string>mach_kernel</string> 3. <key>Kernel Flags</key> 4. <string>arch=i386</string> 5. <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> 6. <string>No</string> Step 5. Reboot your computer with –v flag to see if any errors occur. Step 6. Install Graphics Update 1.0 ( Do not restart yet) Step 7. Run Kext Helper b7 and install rest of the files within the attachment. This will enable hardware acceleration (QE/CE). 1. ATIRadeonX3000.kext 2. ATIRadeonX3000GA.plugin 3. ATIRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle 4. ATIRadeonX3000VADriver.bundle Step 8. Reboot & you are done! P.S. I am only using the DVI output. I have not tested neither VGA nor HDMI. HD5670_Files.zip
